The monster battle RPG Ethermon has announced a build jam event, inviting community members to design the first homes for Ethermon inside Decentraland. The Build Jam Competition offers EMON tokens and land in Decentraland as prizes. The event will start today, June 23th at 2pm CST and will last two weeks until July 7th.
The Ethermon district in Decentraland will play an important role in the game’s universe. It’s the place where houses are, and the main hub for players to start their journey. The developers are seeking the best designers to make awesome houses, and there are no restrictions. The build jam needs to help the Ethermon team to add community designs to their world.
Designers are invited to join the official Discord. Also, those who design something should also tweet about it using the hashtag #buildtoearn. The Ethermon devs also have a bonus reward based on community votes.
Play Ethermon to earn EMON
Ethermon will introduce the EMON token, an ERC-20 token, to push their play-to-earn economy. As a result the token can exist on both the Ethereum and the Polygon blockchain. There’s a total supply of 400 million EMON tokens. Gamers can use these tokens to access premium content, and rare, limited and unique digital assets and benefits. Think about for example buying Ethermons, asset packs, cosmetics, equipment, upgrading metas, enhancing gameplay, unlock special areas and the list continues. The developers will even add more utility to the ecosystem in the future.
However, spending a token is one thing. How do you earn EMON tokens? In the game players can earn MARKS, this is an in-game currency that’s not on the blockchain. They can use these MARKS to craft NFTs, burning these NFTs earns players EMON tokens. Crafted NFTs can also be sold on the marketplace for EMON or through player-owned stores. In addition players can earn EMON through questing, adventures, completing gym battles, and in-game tournaments.
Ethermon moving into Decentraland
Ethermon got completely revamped since the project relaunched as Ethermon Awakening back in 2019. There’s a lot more content, and the game runs on the Polygon blockchain. Now the turn-based battle role playing game is coming the Decentraland, allowing battles and quests in a 3D environment for the first time ever. Ethermon started as a 2D game in 2017, and in the past four years it has developed into a 3D role playing game with its own play-to-earn economy.
Originally the game is a spin-off from the – then popular – game Etheremon, but the new version of the game supports both the old and newer creatures. At the same time a completely new development team took over. The concept of Ethermon will reminds gamers a lot of Pokémon. In the game players need to capture little monsters. These monsters vary in type, generation, form and individual powers. Players own these little monsters and are free to trade them. They can also use these monsters in battle, in which players can earn all kinds of rewards. For example, they can do quests, compete in ranked tournaments, practice or start the adventure mode.
