The virtual universe of Star Atlas will get two different tokens, one for the game itself and one for the DAO representing the world, and both will get a token sale. ATLAS and POLIS will go on sale through three different platforms on August 26th.
FTX, Raydium and Apollo-X will each host their own token offering for both ATLAS and POLIS. Each of the platforms has their own requirements for participation, but of course the amount of people jumping in early will be limited.
The ATLAS token has a market cap of 36 billion, while the POLIS one has a max supply of 360 million tokens. The former is used in the game and serves as a utility token, while the latter is a governance token.
Through the three platforms Star Atlas will sell 2% of their total supply. ATLAS will cost $0.00138 per token, while POLIS will be $0.138. That means that each token sale will have a $1 million value.
If you’re an owner of a Meta Poster NFT, which have been for sale for quite some time, you’re in luck. These NFT owners will get NFT badges, which will give them a benefit during the pre-sale. However, you do need to make sure that your NFT is not being staked or offered on a marketplace. It needs to be idle in your wallet. In addition these NFTs will make their owners eligible for more NFT airdrops in the future.
What is Star Atlas?
Star Atlas is an upcoming massively multiplayer online game set in space, which will use Solana for its blockchain mechanics. All game logic, transactions and ownership will be stored on-chain. Star Atlas will be a grand strategy hybrid space game with serverless MMO gameplay. All gameplay will be real-time, and it will use the blockchain to give players ownership over in-game items, add economic-based gameplay mechanics and implement an economic system inspired by decentralized finance.
The game takes place in a distant future, in which three galactic factions have emerged. There’s an on-going struggle for resources, territorial conquest and political domination. Players can join one of these factions, and then earn income for their contributions. As a result their actions will change the course of the fictional universe. In-game created factions allow players to work together, gather resources and self-govern and manage their own micro-economy.
Star Atlas allows players to venture into deep space and discover new stars. In this universe filled with planets, there’s lots of conflict. Newcomers to the game will start out in a faction safe zone, but eventually venture into medium and deep space zones where the stakes and rewards are much greater.
All ships, space stations and land installations have weapons and shields for attack and defense. Gamers can upgrade space stations and installations through community efforts, while space ship commanders can assign crewmembers to improve the ship’s performance. The choice for your crew can influence your career, ranging from data runner to bounty hunter.
