The Metaverse is without doubt one of the extra bold concepts all through the blockchain business. How have you ever managed to be this far forward of the pattern?

We’d like to ask all customers together with the outdated followers and new coming customers from the crypto world. There are two tokens we’re going to use at GENSOKISHI. We maintain the governance token (MV) worthwhile and likewise the price controlling of in-game crypto: ROND is essential too. We maintain the “economics” ecosystem operating effectively within the recreation similar to in actual world to maintain it regular. So that our customers might take pleasure in something in addition to the RPG adventuring in GENSOKISHI world.
When will you do the LAND sale? What is LAND?
Thanks for asking. The LAND, which is a chunk of MAP within the GENSOKISHI world, as we introduced, is acquirable solely you probably have sufficient MV token staked, by an public sale occasion to personal. A LAND is a sure space within the recreation you could possibly do something you need on it. Like constructing your personal fortress(UGC perform), put your favourite monsters to beat different gamers, or use it as an commercial for you or your organization. Other gamers in the event that they need to get your uncommon NFTs they need to pay some ROND token as a ticket into your LAND then begin taking part in.

Why did you select the Polygon community to base your recreation on?
I actually am additionally having fun with another GameFi on Polygon and felt the likelihood: Speed and low-gas charge. Nowadays ETH is the preferred blockchain however with the excessive gasoline charge it’s not appropriate for gaming. But folks nonetheless like to commerce on ETH, in order L2 of ETH, Polygon resolved the problems of our GameFi workforce. Also Polygon has essentially the most lively customers on the market, in order that’s the principle motive we select Polygon as our companion.
