The global gaming industry has had quite an illustrious journey from the golden days of pong to today’s fully immersive experiences. Riding on the back of technological developments, global internet access, and thrilling gaming experiences, online gaming emerged to become one of the most valuable industries. Today, there are over 2.7 billion gamers across the globe, with numbers actively growing by the day. But at the dawn of the metaverse and Web3, the gaming industry has witnessed the rise of blockchain-based games that promise to change the way it operates.
One game that’s actively bringing about that change is Plato Farm. Built on the blockchain, this emergent game integrates a clever use of NFTs into thrilling gameplay to give users the ultimate gaming experience.
A Thrilling Gameplay
At its core, Plato Farm is an NFT platform that creates an immersive farming metaverse. On this metaverse, players are tasked with growing crops and rearing livestock. For doing so, they receive rewards in the form of MARK and PLATO tokens. Using these tokens, gamers can purchase various resources within the game to create a bustling city, level up in the game, and create an income stream for themselves.
All the resources within the game including the livestock, land, crops, seeds, and tools are NFTs and can be bought on Platfo Farm’s NFT marketplace.
The Gaming Mechanics
To begin gameplay, players need to stock up on a few resources, especially the land, seeds, and livestock. Once they have the resources, they can begin farming by sowing seeds. The seeds take some time to sprout and grow into crops. When this happens, gamers can harvest the crops and either sell them on the NFT market for tokens or send them for further processing to produce new NFT props.
The same goes for rearing livestock. Players are required to care for the animals till they begin producing milk, bacon, or wool. These resources can again be sold on the NFT marketplace or sent for further processing. Interestingly, the game also includes mining for minerals. There are specific tools that players can buy to mine minerals and sell them on the market.
Gamers can choose to do any one or all of these tasks to increase their rewards and create a bustling city out of barren land. The harvested crops, wool, and milk can help players earn real-monetary benefits over time. Players can also build processing guilds in the metaverse to create a sustainable income stream.
As the game continues to grow in value and popularity, the token prices and NFT values are expected to increase exponentially, creating profits for early adopters.
A Dual-Token Gaming Economy
The Plato Farm metaverse is primarily run by two different tokens PLATO and MARK. PLATO is the native token of the platform and has a fixed supply of 100 million tokens. Players can obtain this token either by staking MARK token or by trading NFTs on secondary marketplaces. The more PLATO a gamer holds, the higher will be their level. It is also used to unlock rare NFTs, move to advanced levels, and unlock more gaming content.
MARK token, on the other hand, is the token that is used within the gaming metaverse. It is required to purchase all the in-game resources. Players can obtain MARK by completing different tasks within the game. When players use MARK to buy NFTs, the corresponding tokens are burnt immediately.
Building for the Future
As one of the early adopters of the play-to-earn model in gaming, Platfo Farm aims to create a futuristic gaming metaverse that provides real monetary benefits to users. Plato Farm has already launched the V1 of its Android and IOS applications and is expected to churn out V2 early next year. With unprecedented ease of access and relatively easy gameplay, Plato Farm is poised to appeal to both beginners and veteran gamers, making them a part of the blockchain gaming revolution.
