Everything you need to know about Alien Worlds
With the rising interest in blockchain and the NFT space, new and innovative projects are being developed and these innovations are dethroning some of the biggest names in the industry. One such game is Alien Worlds which surpassed five million users in 2021 and is the most popular blockchain game according to ,
What is Alien worlds?
Alien worlds is a blockchain-based metaverse. It is a mining adventure, a sci-fi game utilizing NFTs, and contains multiple passive earning opportunities. The game runs on multiple blockchain networks which are Ethereum (ETH), Worldwide Asset eXchange (WAX) , and the Binance Smart Chain (BSC).
The core-gameplay works off Non-Fungible Tokens (NFT) and Decentralized Autonomous Organizations (DAO) where the main objective is to travel to different worlds and mine Trilium (TLM), the in-game multi-chain token.
Each planet is independent, and each planet has its own NFTs, experiences, and environments. To start mining Trilium, players make their account on the alien worlds and link their wallets. They can choose their avatar and pick a planet.
Each planet will show you how much TLM can be mined, after that you can choose a piece of land to mine. This will depend on your stake in TLM wherein if you have a high stake then you might get your own piece of land.
Beginners will get a shovel to start with, but the game’s launch pack should feature more tools and these tools determine how much TLM you can mine in one go. Once everything is chosen you just hit mine to get started.
Multiple factors determine the land you choose; such as the commission rate which is how much commission the owner of the land will get as well as charge time and yield multiplier. The charge time determines how long you wait before mining and yield time refers to your chances of receiving NFTs from a mining expedition.
The gameplay also contains missions to go on and if you want to look into earning passive income you can rent the land you own or collect various NFTs.
Trilium: The in-game token
Trilium (TLM) is the native utility token and allows players to participate in games as well as staking their tokens for governance and decision-making within the platform. This will also enable holders to earn rewards.
The Token is also used to acquire NFTs which can be bought with TLM or mined, and be a part of different competitions. The in-game quests also require users to have TLM. The token is also supported on three different blockchains which are ETH, WAX, and BSC.
How to earn within Alien Worlds
Alien Worlds consists of three main methods of earning for players:

The last method of earning is through NFTs. Alien world claims to consist of over 300 NFTs that can be found and collected. Each NFT is unique in terms of its rarity and other stats. Rarity has six levels:
The game itself consists of five different types of NFTs:
Tools: These play a key role in mining TLM and contain stats such as how many tools you can deploy, and what are the strengths and weaknesses. These tools determine how much TLM you can mine at a time and how much TLM you will receive.
Avatars: These are game cards that represent the player. They do not affect gameplay.
Weapons: Minions can be equipped with weapons and certain weapons can provide extra power. These weapons have different stats, such as attack and defense, and have a set durability which means they will need to be repaired within the weapon shop.
Land: The Land NFT is a game card that represents the ownership of the land.
Minions: These are NFTs that can be used in battle and equipped with weapons. They can take damage and will need to be healed within the Federation hospital
NFTs can be obtained through mining on planets but players have the option to buy and sell NFTs on the which is a WAX marketplace. You can log into your WSX cloud wallet which is required to play the game and use that wallet to sell NFTs on the marketplace.
The game is streamlined, easy to understand, and get acquainted with.This game is targeted more towards those who are looking for more of a passive income rather than a hands-on approach of having to play the game every day.
