My Neighbor Alice has become one of the high-profile upcoming virtual worlds, and the developers have now explained how you can play and earn in this game. The play-to-earn economy of My Neighbor Alice is all about providing resources and doing jobs other players don’t want to do.

Players who own land in My Neighbor Alice can grow crops and sell them to other players. Planting and growing in itself should be a nice, fun activity according to the devs. However, you can also rent out your land and let someone else take care of those resources. In addition there will be animals, which come with crafting abilities. For example, if you get cotton from your land, some animals will help you spin that cotton into a thread. Other animals can weave that into a fabric, and so on.

Of course you can trade. Carry resources from one location to another, trying to sell your items with a profit. In addition players can rent their animals to other players. Created items can also look very cool, so you could become a tshirt designer and make a living from fashionable clothing.

The most interesting point mentioned by the developers, was the fact that the game includes its own Craigslist. Land owners can post a job, allowing other players to complete the task in exchange for a reward. This way land owners can let other players feed the animals or harvest crops.

What is My Neighbor Alice?

My Neighbor Alice is a blockchain-powered multiplayer builder game in which players build their own virtual lands, interact with their neighbors, do all kinds of daily and social activities, and earn rewards. Anyone can join the world by buying a piece of land, participate in farming, fishing, bug catching, beekeeping, and many other activities. There are quests players can do together, while others are more competitive.

Neighborhoods will be governed by Community Councils. This is basically a decentralized autonomous organization (DAO) where players can use their ALICE tokens to vote on certain decisions. Furthermore, the DAO will gain more power over time to distribute revenues for additional game development.

In an in-game marketplace, players can sell and buy different items and NFTs. Avatars allow for personalization, while character developments help them to unlock exclusive events and even rewards.

My Neighbor Alice plans to add DeFi elements to the game. NFTs will have collateral, making them more liquid and therefore economically useable. Each NFT gives a monthly interest for holding it, but token holders can also tap into the value.

A share of every NFT purchase will go into a collateral pool, and it’s tied to that particular NFT. If a user needs money, but there’s no buyer, they can lock their NFT and get the collateral instead. The NFT becomes locked and users then need to pay back the money in order to regain control over their digital assets.
