Blockchain gaming has become quite popular recently, and these games are gradually transforming the entire gaming industry.
Nowadays, gamers benefit from blockchain concepts such as non-fungible tokens, play-to-earn, and the metaverse. These features are making games not only a source of entertainment but also a passive income stream.
As blockchain games and the idea of metaverse continue to explode, developers are constantly working on improving the utilities of these metaverse games while introducing more earning opportunities for players. Cardalonia is one such game built on the Cardano network.
What is Cardalonia
Cardalonia is a 3D virtual reality metaverse on the Cardano blockchain. The Cardalonia metaverse is an engaging and fun virtual world where users can acquire 3D NFT avatars, land, socialize, play, trade, and participate in events to earn rewards.
Cardalonia will allow players to build their own experiences on the metaverse. The project’s team intends to develop the platform into a decentralized, multi-player, and multi-chain ecosystem of multiple interconnected worlds.
To enhance the utility and efficiency of NFTs, Cardalonia is creating the world’s first operational interactive NFT system. In the Cardalonia metaverse, medieval avatars come to life in 3D holographic shading methods. Rare in-game assets can also be collected, traded, fought for, and earned on the platform.
How Does It Work?
Players choose their fates in the ecosystem by purchasing a piece of land, which would determine the clan they belong to. There are four clans – the Originals, the Royals, the Lords and Knights, and the Peasants.
The Originals (OGs) are the first group that discovered the Cardalonia ecosystem and are at the forefront of its civilization. They are the rarest and can only be minted once every blue Cardalonian moon, which is approximately 73 epochs.
The Royals are direct descendants of the OGs and possess rare qualities. They have a population of less than 2,000. The Lords and Knights are noble clans that have close ties with the Royals. Players can breed peasants to create either a Lord or a Knight.
Peasants are the most common clan in the Cardalonia ecosystem and are just normal inhabitants of the planet. They can only live in colonies due to their limited abilities and have a population of 227,000.
It’s also important to note that you would need to possess some $LONIA tokens before you will be able to partake in the land pre-sale. Once users have acquired or rented a Land, players can start designing and building their experiences. Cardalonia makes it easier for players to build as each land will allow complete control of its play mechanics.
Once the Cardalonia metaverse is fully launched, it intends to provide designated land on offer to serve the community for work, play, and wellness purposes. The in-game NFT assets are currently in development and will be released soon.
Features of Cardalonia
Cardalonia has several features on its metaverse platform to sustain the ecosystem’s utility and provide users value.
Players can breed their current clan members to create new clans. These new clans possess unique and rare features that help increase players’ revenue.
This is an in-house NFT marketplace where users can list, buy, and sell their Cardalonia collectibles. In the marketplace, players can purchase land, buy and trade Avatars, as well as in-game power-ups and gems. The marketplace is currently under development.
Cardalonia recently launched its staking platform, allowing users to start staking their tokens immediately after acquiring them. Users can earn up to 25% APY on their staked tokens.
The LONIA token
LONIA is the native utility token that facilitates all transactions on the Cardalonia metaverse. There will be a total of 100 million LONIA tokens with a strong lock policy, meaning no further tokens will be created in the future.
LONIA token holders will receive several benefits, including access to exclusive NFT drops, a whitelist for clan drops, and access to exclusive experiences, perks, and items in the Cardalonia ecosystem. Holders can also vote on certain decisions that could affect the Cardalonia ecosystem.
Staking rewards are distributed via the LONIA token. The token is also used to make purchases and pay land rent.
Users can acquire LONIA tokens here. In terms of token stats, the duration of the sale will last 6 epochs, and the minimum buy is set at 250 ADA, where 1 ADA buys 13 LONIA tokens.
