6 Ways to Play Metaverse Miner
The Metaverse Miner ecosystem is built on three assets: META tokens, Planet NFTs and Miner NFTs. There are 6 main ways to play.
• Become a Star Master
Players can become a Star Master (basically, an intergalactic landlord) by participating in the planet’s NFT auction, and gaining ownership of an entire planet. A Star Master can enjoy most of the proceeds from the land.To keep running these proceeds, the players need to invite more users to participate.
• Become a Star Lord
Instead of being a Star Master, players can participate in the game or to own a miner NFT (“miner”) using USDT to buy from the planet NFT, and become a Star Lord. A Star Lord can mine the planet with considerable earnings.
• “Energy Value” is required when mining
Energy value is like the cost of electricity needed for mining, which can be charged using USDT.
• Collecting energy by staking a miner NFT
Players can stake the miner NFT to obtain “energy” in the form of META, of which the Star Master owns 5% and the miner NFT owns 95%.
• Leasing a Star Master’s mines for revenue
Players can earn a portion of the planet NFT holder’s earnings by paying rent and owning the right to use the Star Master’s mines.
• Become a Collector
Miner NFTs come in a variety of forms and incorporate effects such as 3D and AR to meet the needs of different players’ collections.
