Many analysts believe that GameFi (the sector of blockchain-based games with economic incentives) will be one of the dominant trends in the coming years.
Strategy games are the key industry for the growth and popularity of blockchain games: it has nearly 200 million players and generates more than $1 billion in annual revenue. This game model in which players receive rewards (usually NFTs or native tokens) owes its popularity to one of the best-known titles on the market, Axie Infinity.
However, this sector is huge and there are many opportunities for development studios. One of the titles that gamers are eagerly awaiting is Monkey Empire, a game designed to be accessible to all categories of users and different from similar titles thanks to a system of value creation between developers and players.
Presentation of the game
Monkey Empire is an MMO RTS video game (Massively multiplayer online real-time strategy) similar to Clash of Clans and Guns of Glory. Designed to be cross-platform between mobile and desktop, so you can play wherever you want, whenever you want!
The aim of the game is to collect resources, build a village of monkeys, train your troops and collect cryptocurrencies from your opponents after carrying out attacks on their cities.
It should be noted that although it is a game based on the blockchain, it is absolutely not necessary to have any knowledge of the subject; likewise, having a wallet isn’t essential except to be able to withdraw rewards in the future.
MonkeyCoin: game economy (tokenomics)
Monkey Empire is built with Unreal Engine 5. In fact, it is one of the few blockchain games that uses true gaming industry standards (AAA), with a complex game economy that puts the token in the middle of it. Indeed, one of the main resources in the game is the MonkeyCoin token.
Technically, Monkeycoin will be staked on Solana, Avalanche, Binance Smart Chain blockchains. To avoid scalability issues that could be related to too many players, the Monkey Empire team is currently working on the Avalanche subnets. The interoperability between Avalanche and Binance Smart Chain will be ensured by a “bridge” currently controlled by crypto security firm Paladin.
The total supply of MKC is fixed at 210,000,000,000 pieces. The price of the token for private sale participants will be $0.000085 and that of the public sale will be $0.00012.
In addition, NFTs will be an integral part of Monkey Empire’s gameplay. They come in two forms and have a real impact on the gaming experience:
Cosmetic NFTs are knocked out of the game or can be earned by completing certain modes and participating in special events.
Consumable NFTs are developed by the Research Center or earned during special events. They will provide essential attributes to enhance the abilities of your troops.
Monkey Coin’s calendar for 2022 is busy: the team is indeed preparing the release of the first version of the game for the third quarter of 2022. Prior to this event, Alpha and Beta versions will be tested with the general public to collect data to improve the game and balance the various parameters before the integration of the token.
An Alpha version is already available in private mode and already allows you to experiment with the many functions of the game: building villages and buildings, collecting resources and clashing between players.
Competitions will be held ahead of V1’s September launch, which will allow players to receive many prizes, including NFTs and tokens.
