The Earth, once the Eden, the precious gift to mankind, has turned to a dark, exhausted orb in this vastly deep, cold, and seemingly empty space. We are no longer welcome here. But we still believe that this could not be the end. Not yet.
The ones who yet survived the dawn of the Earth are gathering the remaining resources of our beloved home to build our only possible future - Spaceships. To collaborate, they proposed a new decentralized currency - Credits, easing the path of the pioneers and enabling the new economy. But no economy can exist without conflicts, when someone prospers - raiders will inevitably emerge. Alongside drills and excavators, the pioneers are mounting firearms. The preparation for the great journey has begun. The Universe of Farsite awaits.
Developed by SUPERNOVAE, the team which pioneered the NFT gaming back in early 2018 with their city-builder strategy MegaCryptoPolis, the new decentralized MMO game Farsite offers players a new playable world to leverage their cNFTs.
The main asset in the game, as obvious as it may seem for a space MMO, is a Spaceship. Ships are unique in their appearance, there are multiple models of Spaceships with various rarity and characteristics.
But the most interesting part is that these Ships are not regular NFTs. Each and every ship, as well as modules (used to tune and modify your ships), are cNFTs, which means Collateral Non-Fungible Tokens - ERC-721 tokens with ERC-20 standard tokens - Credits - locked inside as collateral.
The main purpose of Credits is to stake them as collateral to create new ships and modules, which in the future could be used as collateral themselves, enabling lending against game assets.
After the initial distribution of Credits, players can only acquire them when they purchase Crates, which are containers with valuable game items and the only source for original Blueprint required to build spaceships. The limited Crates pre-order launches on the 2nd of December.
In mid-August, the Starmap was released, which gave the early adopters the ability to explore a number of explored galaxies and some insight into what the game will look like. Moreover, it enabled players to secure Sectors on planets to build their base with mining and production facilities in the upcoming Alpha release of the game.
Speaking of the Alpha, the early Alpha release is scheduled for December, 14. The universe has already attracted more than 500k registered players following and discussing the development process on the project’s Discord server. Staying on Earth is not an option - don’t miss the train heading to space, enlist now at the official website.
