Application for Delegation - NextColony
The NextColony project would like to officially apply for a "mid-tier" Steem Power delegation from Steemit Inc., based on the application guidelines presented in this post.
Project name: NextColony
Place of Incorporation: Germany
Token name: Stardust (STARDUST)
Token Type: Utility token. Will integrate with Steem-Engine later or SMT’s once available.
Blockchain enables the ability to trade digital assets between games, and the ability to trade digital assets between gamers directly. By using the blockchain technology, we can offer a game that is completely transparent and verifiable. On this basis, we reward players with STEEM for activity and success and creating a strong incentive for sustainable engagement.

Minimum Viable Product
NextColony is a last days space simulation with RPG elements and tradeable collectibles built on the Steem blockchain. This game will change your life, rescue Steem and make this environment the most imaginative place in the entire universe. We are building an infinitely large - open world - universe that offers great adventures on a daily basis.
This game is made in Germany and built by an experienced and highly motivated team. We get our motivation from our strong community and our fuel is donuts and coffee.
Revenue Strategy: NextColony sells tradable digital goods (NFTs represented on the Steem blockchain) in the in-game shop for STEEM.
Fiat Revenue Projections in $/user every month: We expect to earn at least $4 in revenue per active account per month.
How will this increase the amount of STEEM being powered up? Each player generates an average of nearly 20 transactions daily and we will increase this rate with additional and highly engaging modules in the coming months. An actively used game creates a high incentive to increase the amount of STEEM being powered up.
What financial incentives are you willing to provide to Steemit, Inc.? None. But we will create a special, wonderful designed and unique legendary Steemit Inc. planet. This planet is tradable and a key-element to the reward pool. The planet will be placed near the 0/0 coordinate.
How will you become financially sustainable once the delegation is removed? We have been financially sustainable since the first day and have kept the most important values, such as "daily active users", constant for four months. We have already powered up 121,000 STEEM. A delegation helps us significant to accelerate growth but our progress doesn't depend on it.
