Alien Worlds is one of the fastest-growing blockchain games and one of the most popular decentralized applications (dApps) on the market. Today over 2.7 million users play it.
In Alien Worlds, users can mine an in-game TLM token and trade various items presented in an NFT form. Thus, Alien Worlds users can earn from several tens to a couple of thousand dollars per month.
Today, we’ll find out how Alien Worlds works, what makes it unique as well as its most interesting features. Let’s get started!
What Makes Alien Worlds Unique
How was mentioned before, Alien Worlds is a metaverse where players can mine the in-game TLM currency and trade various NFTs. In between, they can complete quests, fight each other, or participate in the management of the game.
To date, Alien Worlds is the only blockchain game that operates on multiple networks at once: Ethereum, Binance Smart Chain (BSC), and WAX (a fork of the EOS network). Its TLM tokens are available on all three networks, but all accounting transactions and game maintenance go through WAX — this is a fast gaming blockchain with low fees, so using it is more profitable than using Ethereum.
The plot of the game is quite simple: in 2055, people received a message from aliens, in which they shared the secret of moving through wormholes in space. Thus, new planets were opened to humanity, and brave adventurers rushed into space to mine a unique Trillium mineral — the TLM token.
Alien Worlds players explore other worlds, cooperate and compete with each other for land and resources, mine TLM, and also receive in-game items in the form of NFTs. Each planet is a Decentralized Autonomous Organization (DAO) receiving TLMs daily through smart contracts. Trillium is required to rule the planets. TLM and NFT can be sold on the secondary market, making money on this.
Alien Worlds was launched in December 2020. At first, it became the first blockchain game to reach 100,000 users, then a million, and then two million users.
Alien Worlds currently has over 2.7 million registered users of which about 370,000 play the game every day. According to DappRadar, it is one of the largest dApps on the crypto market at the moment.
Alien Worlds is being developed by the German company Dacoco, which specializes in building DAOs. The firm also participated in the development of EOS and a Liberland blockchain experiment.
DAOs and Planets in Alien Worlds
There are 7 planets in the Alien Worlds universe, but, according to developers, new ones will be added later. Each planet is a separate DAO competing with the others.
At the start, players choose any planet they like, on which they will then start mining Trillium — the world can be changed at any time. At the same time, DAO members have a vote, which is proportional to the number of their TLM tokens. Thus, they take an active part in the development and management of the planet.
The planet has a council of 5 members that determine its resource strategy as well as the quests that can be completed on it. For example, the council can set the commission that must be paid to mine TLM on their planet or rules for what actions players will receive the most rewards for. Council members are selected by voting.
All DAOs are run by the Federation, an in-game organization of the game’s developers that monitors the gameplay. Every day, the Federation allocates TLM tokens to each planet. It can also create new planets.
Each planet is made up of parcels or lands (LAND). Each parcel is an NFT with a unique set of parameters and price. Players with a large number of TLMs can buy parcels of land on planets and rent them out to other players, receiving a daily stable income. By default, the commission for the use of a parcel is 20%, but an owner of the land can change it.
Trillium (TLM) Tokens in Alien Worlds
How was mentioned before, Trillium (TLM) is an in-game token that users receive when playing Alien Worlds. The token is needed to participate in DAO activities of the selected planet, as well as to buy in-game items, complete quests and just to earn interest. The maximum emission of TLM will be 10 billion, now there are about 0.9 billion tokens in circulation.
TLM mining is actually mining but expressed in a game way. Its profitability depends on the wealth of the land on which a player mines TLM, on the mining commission of an owner of the land, and on the equipment used. For greater profitability, you can join one of the pools and withdraw tokens at any time.
The mining process is limited in time. Thus, after mining the token, you need to wait until the mining tools recharge. The profitability of TLM mining can be calculated in advance using one of the special calculators in Alien Worlds.
At the start, each player gets their character and a shovel for TLM mining (over time, it can be turned into an excavator). It mines 0.1 TLM at a time. By purchasing new equipment, you can increase the efficiency of token mining up to 500 TLM at a time.
The game Alien Worlds is aimed at farming tokens — in-game NFTs and Trillium. They can be sold on the secondary market or used for further farming. Players note that Alien Worlds is an interesting project. The advantages of the project include the ability to quickly receive cryptocurrency with one click.
