Calvaria continues to race through its presale and is now into stage 4 of 10 and quickly heading towards the landmark figure of $1.5 million.
With each presale stage seeing a large increase in the price of the native RIA token, investors are acting fast to invest in the rapidly-growing GameFi project.
Stage 4 tokens are on sale for $0.025 but stage 5 will see that increase to $0.03 and by stage 10 tokens will cost $0.055 each.
Calvaria Racing Through Presale
Calvaria will sell 30% – 300 million – of its max 1 billion supply of RIA tokens during the presale phase, with the price seeing a 450% increase from the first stage to the 10th and final stage.
While investors may have missed those big gains, tokens bought in stage 4 will still see a massive increase of 120% before the token is even listed on exchanges.
Each stage has an allocation of just 30 million tokens and the presale has a hard cap of $9.75 million, with presale tokens having no vesting period after the presale ends.
The project has already agreed on partnerships with major tier-one centralized exchanges KuCoin and Gate.io following the presale.
A large amount of the remaining token allocation is taken up by the staking pool (25%) and the prize pool (20%).
A further 8% will be reserved for operations and 6% for the Initial NFT Offering (INO), with the remaining allocation split between the team (5%) – which is fully doxxed and KYC-verified – liquidity (4%), and advisors (2%).
The project is also offering investors a $100,000 giveaway during the presale, paid out in RIA and shared between three winners – $70k for the winner, $20k for second place, and $10k for third.
To take part, investors must hold $100 of RIA on the day of the draw and can gain up to 155 entries by taking part in tasks such as following the project on Twitter and joining the Discord server.
What is Calvaria: Duels of Eternity?
Calvaria is exciting investors because not only is it building in the high-potential GameFi sector but because the developers have a clear plan to attract casual and traditional gamers to the ecosystem.
While other blockchain gaming projects are struggling to attract players, Calvaria has identified two major obstacles for more players switching to Web3, making it one of the best gaming crypto projects of the year.
Indeed, games such as Decentraland and The Sandbox had a combined 20,000 players in October – despite each boasting market caps over $1 billion – while Axie Infinity is now attracting only 200,000 per month having peaked at nearly 3 million in November 2021.
The first obstacle is prohibitive costs – such as playable NFTs or tokens – stopping players from playing, and the second is the lack of technical knowledge can be intimidating for some.
Calvaria will solve both of those issues with a free-to-play (F2P) version of its flagship game Duels of Eternity, a battle-card strategy.
Players will be able to play the full game totally for free, without the need for NFTs or tokens and without any blockchain knowledge.
Calvaria believes the strength of the game alone will be enough to attract players, while it will entice players along by adding a visible tracker – that shows how much a player could have won if playing the play-to-earn (P2E) version – and by adding gamified educational quests that help players learn about the blockchain.
The game, set in the afterlife, sees players select one of three warring factions that have particular traits and skills – players fight in one-on-one battles, stacking their decks and using skill, knowledge, and boosters to win matches.
There is also a full single-player campaign mode where players can earn cards and assets that are usable in other game modes.
In the P2E version, players will be rewarded with in-game currency eRIA, which can then be used to buy more powerful cards, upgrades, and other assets.
Cards will be fully owned as NFTs and can be bought and sold on the free market.
Like major Web2 games Fortnite, Apex Legends, and others, Calvaria will adopt a seasonal approach to Duels of Eternity with expansions, new cards, and upgrades regularly available and changing throughout the year.
Later in 2023, Calvaria will also develop an in-house eSports team and plans to host eSports tournaments with major prize pools around the game.
