The Birth of a New Galaxy
A New Galaxy is Born
On Monday I received early access to an upcoming game CryptoGalaxy . They have 10 days til launch and I'm excited. The game's economics is run on the NEO Blockchain, and later it will expand to more. This allows you to buy tokens on exchanges and then convert it to GALA which is the in game currency. So what do you do with GALA? Buy your very first planet on the Blockchain! When I first opened the Dapp I was very impressed by the color palate and graphics. I was a bit overwhelmed by the UI at first, but I guess that is to expected when trying a new platform. So I bought my first planet with some GALA pictured below:
As you can see, the planets look amazing. They are all really unique with different colors, textures, moons, rings, ect. This one was calling me so I bought it and named it. Now its time to mine this new planet for GALA! So I buy my mining bot, with a button that says "ALREADY", I wasn't sure what that meant, maybe its a mess up in translation. But it looked enough like a buy button so I pressed it and bought my first bot. Then, I assigned the robot to my planet. Assigning the bot was a little confusing, hopefully it will be more simplistic later. I wasn't sure I was mining until a little orange pixel appeared on my planet. You touch it and it collects GALA from your planet.
After getting the hang of it, I was ready to buy more bots and planets. Unfortunately, since this was an Alpha, you can only buy one bot for now. So I went and bought another planet just for fun..... I think I'm hooked already. Since I couldn't mine it, I just spun it around a few times and admired it. It would be great if they make a function where you can make your planet your live wallpaper, because the planets look so sweet.
Everyone Loves Dividends
They are implementing a Dividend structure for the GALA mining which will make it super fun. When you sell a planet, you will receive a percentage of the buyers mining on that planet. This is a great mechanic. As we know everybody loves collecting dividends. So even if you sell all your planets, you'll still be mining GALA. This is a great way to reward early adopters.
What Will The Galaxy Hold?
Finally, I decided to look through the pages. You have a wallet of course and a leaderboard. The leaderboard should be fun for competitions and I'm hoping some tiered rankings. I can't wait for them to add some more bots with maybe perks of some kind. This game has a lot of potential. I can see it expanding to ships, wars, planetary defenses and maybe even interplanetary takeovers and pirating. The game seems simple now, but it has the potential to be huge just like the galaxies it takes after.
