Solana-powered game DeFi Land launches Play-and-Earn features
The Play-and-Earn mechanics announcement comes on the heels of a collab between DeFi Land and STEPN. DeFi Land will soon announce chain integrations, an alpha mobile version, and a multichain feature.
DeFi Land has launched a new breed of Play-and-Earn game, where ecosystem users can fish, shoot, farm, drive harvesters, and take care of pets, among other activities.
The previous DeFi Land ecosystem, with no play-to-earn elements, was able to achieve over 7,500 daily active users looking to have fun while running a farm. Its initial version without monetary rewards received much support from blockchain gaming ecosystems, having become the third-biggest game in terms of market cap.
DeFi Land, which is the first-ever gamification project built on Solana, is now reborn with new mechanics to make things much more exciting, according to the announcement.
Players can access DeFi Land without starting funds
Starting from its current 7,500 daily active users and 25,000 monthly active users, DeFi Land expects adoption to skyrocket with the first of its kind Play-and-Earn game.
“As everyone has experienced farming games in their online life – through social networks or otherwise – DeFi Land has tremendous potential to become a very accessible Play-and-Earn game. Its various activities and solid foundation pave the way for the mainstream adoption of these gaming mechanics”, said the developer firm.
DeFi Land is a multi-chain agriculture simulation web game created to gamify decentralized finance. The game will have all the features that traditional platforms have, but it will be gathered all in one place. DeFi Land gamifies decentralized finance by turning investment activities into games.
The new Play-and-Earn model will have players earning the native $DFL token as a reward, along with a new in-game currency $GOLDY. Through these currencies, players can upgrade their in-game NFTs – the collection sold out in 16 seconds on launch day and raised $1,75 million, and recently saw a 2.5x price floor increase across OpenSea and Magic Eden – or customize, craft, repair, and socially interact with others. Accessing the Play-and-Earn features requires owning one DeFi Land Gen-0 NFT.
Players can access DeFi Land without starting funds. In the free mode, players can collect XP and go up the leaderboard to participate for monthly prizes, including DFL, GOLDY, and in-game NFTs. Incentivizing people through a free-to-play approach enhances the appeal of DeFi Land, and the strong support for playing without any incentives shows there is long-term sustainability.
