Thanks to blockchain and the ability to create non-fungible tokens that track ownership, enable inventory management on a digital front and allow uniquely scarce assets on the secondary market to be traded, we could be looking at the next evolutionary step in the gaming industry.
Play-To-Earn gaming is quickly picking up speed, with mainstream tech companies gearing up to enter the metaverse in a major way. While the idea may seem like a pipe dream to some, the technologies that would support a metaverse world and allow play-to-earn platforms to thrive already exist.
Virtual reality devices are being produced in droves and haptic feedback devices are on the rise, with the likes of companies such as HTC and Oculus pushing the envelope on what is acceptable to the masses.
What’s more, blockchain tech is further advancing with the rise of NFT platforms as well as other innovations that allow for peer-to-peer transactions on a global scale. Some of the biggest names in tech have already started exploring this brave new world and are laying the groundwork for an immersive VR web that will eventually allow people to experience metaverse worlds.
Challenges in the current world of gaming
However, while the gaming industry is primed for further growth in the coming years, many challenges stand in the way of progress. For instance, the fierce pace at which the gaming industry is developing means that some computers are quickly becoming outdated as many new games can only be launched on specific devices.
Also, existing gaming platforms, especially those integrating DeFi (decentralized finance protocols) into their platform, are riddled with fraudulent schemes as the sophistication of crypto and blockchain-related projects leaves room for scammers. Studies already show that crypto wallets that belong to scammers have so far received billions of dollars in fraudulently acquired funds.
Other concerns are related to the lack of transparency in how gamers’ data is being used, especially on existing centralized platforms where gamers are not rewarded fairly for their contributions.
While the play-to-earn model is catching on with the rise of NFTs, most gaming platforms are still built with a centralized framework, where the gaming company owns every in-game asset and maintains full control over gamers’ data on the platform.
Moreover, existing gaming platforms in the GameFi industry are of poor quality and have unfinished storylines, yet they are built to appeal to audiences accustomed to high-quality mainstream gaming platforms.
Cue SIDUS HEROES
SIDUS HEROES is the first-ever platform to combine the strongest aspects of traditional gaming with those of blockchain gaming, providing a metaverse-ready gaming experience.
It is an AAA-level MMORPG game that can boast being the first-of-its-kind, WebGL, play-to-earn game featuring NFTs. SIDUS HEROES’ WebGL technology makes it possible for players to have easy access to incredibly high-quality content from any part of the world while only using their browser. NFTs on the other hand act as the lifeblood of the game’s play-to-earn model, since they enable the tracking of owners and investors in all in-game assets. With all these technical aspects tied together, SIDUS HEROES is capable of offering gamers the flexibility and convenience they’ve been waiting for. Plus, the platform’s large team, which includes experts from different domains – blockchain, DeFi, game development and NFT art, gives SIDUS HEROES the capacity to deliver a high quality gaming experience like never before.
At its core, SIDUS HEROES is a breakthrough for both the gaming and finance industry, since every player in the game can earn real money for the time they spend playing or actively contributing to the SIDUS HEROES metaverse.
The SIDUS HEROES Gameplay
The platform’s gameplay is also well thought out and is set in a sci-fi world where technology has advanced sufficiently to enable living beings to merge with machines, thus giving rise to a new race.
Players in the game interact with each other through avatars belonging to the different races that exist within the game’s universe. Players get to go on exploratory interstellar adventures, not to mention engage in supreme battle experiences with other players on the platform.
The platform supports both PvE (player versus environment) and PvP (player versus player) modes of play or they can fight in legions and compete in tournaments. With every tournament, the mission is to win battles and accumulate points for receiving exclusive rewards that contain NFTs. These NFTs can be in-game characters with upgraded performance levels.
Despite the in-game characters coming from different factions, the platform’s gameplay is designed such that players from different backgrounds must find common ground and collaborate with one another in order to advance. This is particularly true for successfully completing difficult missions.
SIDUS HEROES Economy
Beyond the gaming experience that has been designed to be as realistic as possible, there is the SIDUS HEROES economic model. Just as in real life, the resources scattered throughout the SIDUS HEROES universe are scarce, giving players that gather resources inside the game and cultivate the skills to do so, an important role to play. The platform is designed to allow players to engage in economic activities that have a real impact on the game’s ecosystem.
As a player, you can choose to become a builder, a farmer or a landowner and develop infrastructure on your plot of land, thus receiving additional rewards for mining and manufacturing activities. There is also an option to be a collector of resources that can be sold on the platform’s marketplace. Other economic activities include the merging of NFTs of the same quality to produce upgrades. Users can alternatively (or in conjunction) choose to master certain professions such as a hunter, a builder, a scientist, a pilot or a mechanical engineer and earn a living by serving others in the metaverse.
SIDUS HEROES Political System
An integral part of the game’s metaverse is its DAO (decentralized autonomous organization), governed through a political system that consists of 28 Councilors, Ministers and party members. The Council decides on core technological developments within the platform and makes key decisions within the framework of the evolving SIDUS HEROES universe. Each Council member is selected through an elaborate and transparent election process, involving KYC and NFT staking, which is required of each candidate.
SIDUS HEROES Tokenomics
Tying everything together is its two-token economic model that powers gaming activities as well as the day-to-day governing of the platform. The SENATE is the platform’s governance token and is used for voting and influencing the development of the SIDUS HEROES metaverse. As you’d expect, the more SENATE tokens a user holds, the more voting power they have. The total supply of SENATE tokens is set at 300 million.
The second token is the SIDUS token, which serves as the platform’s in-game utility token. This is the token used to pay out rewards on the platform and is also the main currency in which in-game items and services are procured. The total supply of SIDUS tokens is 30 billion.
Conclusion: SIDUS HEROES and its Future Outlook
SIDUS HEROES is pioneering the future of metaverse gaming with its unique blend of economics, politics and well thought through gameplay. The platform is already active with the launch of several tournaments in which players compete and the winning players are rewarded.
SIDUS HEROES is already building partnerships with high-profile investors and some of YouTube’s biggest creators, growing its gaming community and helping to accelerate mainstream adoption.
More than being just a game, SIDUS HEROES makes it possible for gamers to earn money for the time they spend engaging in platform activities. Thanks to its multifaceted, play-to-earn gaming economy, SIDUS HEROES is revolutionizing the gaming industry by eliminating the biggest challenges faced by gamers today.
