Alien Worlds Making NFT Card Mining Fair Again

In order to keep NFT card mining fair for all participants in Alien Worlds, the Federation has implemented new scaling solutions and limitations. They will prevent excessive distribution of NFTs, while also creating new mechanics for earning them. From now on, until those numbers change, every hour one legendary NFT will drop.

Alien Worlds has gone through some incredible growth in the past 3 months. On an average day more than 220 thousand gamers jump into the game to earn some TLM tokens or find NFTs. Early January there were only a couple of hundred.

The new NFT card drop mechanism has a script running in the background, calculation the amount of luck each player has generated every hour. Based on that, the rewards will be distributed through something similar to a raffle system. Every hour the system will distribute approximately the following cards:

  • Legendary : 1
  • Epic : 4
  • Rare : 16
  • Common : 64
  • Abundant : 256

According to the developers, or the Federation, this will improve the efficiency of mining on the Wax blockchain. These changes will diminish the amount of errors or CPU usage problems players run into. In addition they expect these changes to improve the Wax ecosystem overall, as Alien Worlds requires less power from the network. Furthermore, these change will make it easier to implement changes in the future.

More NFTs are coming

Last week the developers already announced that they will introduce more NFTs. There will be 6 new tools and 43 artifacts. Currently artifacts have no functionality yet, but they will provide a buff in future gameplay options.

Claiming NFTs has changed as well. Late May to team removed automatic claiming of NFTs, which basically initiated a claim on every mining session, also when there was nothing to claim. So instead gamers now need to login to and go through a simple process to claim their NFTs all at once. Again, this is a way to remove traffic from the Wax blockchain.

What is Alien Worlds?

Alien Worlds is an exploration and mining game in which players can own land, use tools and weapons, customize their avatars, own rare artifacts and have minions to use in battles. The game world offers a full economy where players battle for resources and value. In the coming months they will introduce special missions where players can earn TLM tokens, in addition there will be a competitive mode called Thunderdome.

Players in this game world earn Trilium (TLM). This is a cryptocurrency token that bridges the Wax and Ethereum blockchain, allowing the economies of both chains to merge into one. Players earn TLM through mining, and can spend the tokens on betters tools and weapons. Landowners can also airdrop their own custom NFTs to players.

Once you own quite some TLM, you can stake this on a planet and vote in planetary decisions through their decentralized autonomous organization, or DAO. Players and planets all battle for TLM, resulting in competition and collaboration on different fronts.

Ultimately Alien Worlds needs to become a 3D game where avatars roam planets using tools to mine Trilium. Through terraforming, players should even be able to create events and parties on their own lands.
