Probably the most adventurous moment for this week was Marshal Sneaky Panda smashing the heads of my opponents in Ether Kingdoms.
This browser-based blockchain game contains idle elements, items to equip, and a minable token.
Ether Kingdoms, a hybrid game (economy on the blockchain, game on central servers), that offers a fun way to level up through battles, own mining nodes, and earn IMP Tokens.
The ultimate goal: The Mines
As you login to the game, you come across your kingdom with a castle and 25 locked mines. Each mine requires 100 IMP tokens to unlock and returns 0.25 IMP per day, equivalent to 0.25%. Once you geta mine, it automatically becomes level 1. At the time of writing this post, one IMP costs 0.055$. A mine and each upgrade cost around 7$.
As you level up your champion by challenging other players or bots, nodes become upgradable. A node can reach up to level 4 with a return rate of 1%. This is the way Ether Kingdoms provide a passive income stream through gaming on the blockchain.
Get ready: Battle begins
Battling is the way to level up, each battle needs 10 IMP tokens where you stake your tokens on your champion, and regarding the outcome of the battle, you might win some or lose some.
For now, the system’s battles are automated with 50/50 chances to win with more features to be added, like player’s control in future updates. We should probably also say that battles are not a get-rich-quick-scheme.
Instead, a formula calculates the earning/losses based on the remaining HP and who the winner is. You can either win 5 IMP or 0.5IMP. Either way, battles are sorely used to level up your champion and raise your fighting morale.
Once you reach level 15, some champion inventory slots become available, and they can be filled with things, tradable by the community on the decentralized blockchain assets exchange OpenSea.
Champions have statics that can affect the outcome of a battle. For example, we have the standard HP Bar, the damage our hero can deal with, his defense rate, critical & dodge rates, and a golden ability for an extra attack. While these stats look important, your champion can ignore all of the bonus damages in a fight while having immune capabilities.
Ether Kingdoms has its own decentralized economy based on the ethereum blockchain, IMP is a proof-of-stake ERC20 Standard token available for trading in Mercatox and Livecoin.
The token has a total supply of 13,000,000 IMP with 349,885 IMP in circulating. It is expected to reach the total supply before September 2019 where the team will implement a burning mechanism to increase the value of each token. As a result, IMP looks attractive to both players and investors.
Developers are about to implement a voting mechanism. Ether Kingdoms is becoming a community-driven game where players can cast their opinion and decide the future development plans. We are glad to see developers choosing the side of the community. It empowers the players as their opinion counts, and democracy wins. Moreover, some updates come, including fights with bosses and clans implementation with individual items and artifacts. Bosses will drop unique items and rewards. Worth to mention, the game will move to a freemium model, and players will be able to play free of charge up to level 15.
Our final say
Ether Kingdoms is one of the few mining games up to date in the blockchain gaming world. With minimal effort and money, you can start earning your own IMP tokens while you challenge other players. Their community is highly active, and we got a response instantly in all of our questions asked through their official telegram group. You only have to sign the game to play. There are almost zero transaction fees
Do not spend more than you can afford to lose. It’s a game and you should treat it as such.
