Everything You Need to Know About: Gods Unchained
Due to the wide array of Web3 games available, people are constantly on the lookout for the next best project/game to invest in. One of these successful projects is Gods Unchained, a collectible, play to earn, fantasy trading card game developed on the Ethereum network.
With the prospect of having play-to-earn opportunities from the beginning, Gods Unchained quickly rose through the ranks by being an attractive option. It possesses the biggest gaming Decentralized application on Immutable X with an estimated 13 million Gods Unchained NFTs (Non Fungible Tokens) and approximately 65,000 unique asset holders.
The game was developed to change the perspective on how Web3 games utilize Ethereum technology while also granting true digital ownership to its players through minting cards and items, and in the process proving how play-to-earn works within the gaming sector.
$GODS is the core currency of the game and it fuels the ecosystem which allows players to earn and sell NFTs. It is primarily used to reward players and is used within the marketplace for creating NFTs and any in-game purchases.
Staking also plays a key role with players who participate in governance initiatives. Players staking $GODS receive rewards from the reward pool. Staking rewards are earned by those who finish the in-game campaign. This token also is the representation of voting power which will enable holders to participate in governance proposals.
$GODS is currently priced at $0.4611 (INR 36.76)
How to earn in Gods Unchained
Other than Staking rewards, the main way to earn in Gods Unchained is primarily driven by acquiring new cards. To earn money you have to sell cards on the marketplace. A new phase of their play-to-earn mechanics is introduced through earning GODS tokens by meeting certain weekly criteria.
By winning a minimum amount of games within a week in their campaign ‘Blessings of the Gods’. Players are eligible to earn if they are rank 4, win 7 out of 20 games during the week, and face at least 17 different opponents with the games needing to last for four rounds.
Your Rank is the determining factor for how many points you earn each week. You can also earn more points if you reach two to three times the minimal targets. This system divides the reward pool by the number of points earned between the point shareholders at the end of the week.
