New crypto gaming project Calvaria has now raised nearly $1 million in its presale after attracting a slew of investors in the last week.
The project, which is currently in stage 3 of its 10-stage presale, is gathering a huge amount of buzz in the crypto space, given its unique solution to solving two major issues of blockchain gaming.
While the huge potential of GameFi is undeniable, the space has continued to struggle to attract regular gamers.
The likes of Decentraland and The Sandbox may command market caps of more than $1 billion each – they had just 20,000 combined players in October, according to DappRadar.
Calvaria to Solve Two Major GameFi Issues
Calvaria aims to solve two of the biggest issues in the GameFi space by making its flagship game – Duels of Eternity – not only available as a play-to-earn (P2E) game but as a free-to-play (F2P) version.
The developers believe that traditional and casual gamers have been put off by crypto games in the past because of the large initial outlay and technical knowledge needed to even play the game.
Players generally need to purchase NFTs and have knowledge of blockchain tech, such as crypto wallets, to even play games.
Calvaria believes the F2P version of Duels of Eternity will entice gamers into blockchain gaming more naturally.
First, there will be a visible tracker that shows how much players could have earned had they been playing the P2E mode over the F2P one.
There will also be gamified quests where players are rewarded for learning about blockchain technology and the space in general.
What is Duels of Eternity?
Duels of Eternity is a strategy card battle game that sees players face live opponents to win rewards distributed in crypto tokens.
The game is set in the afterlife and features three warring factions battling for supremacy.
Each faction has unique traits and strengths, and players will have to use their knowledge, skill, and timing - utilizing powerups - to beat their rivals.
Unlike other battle card games, Duels of Eternity also features a single-player campaign mode where players can earn cards and powerups that can be used in the player vs. player mode.
Players can stack their decks with fully ownable cards as well as scour the secondary market to buy and sell their decks to improve.
Calvaria Presale Details
Calvaria is currently in the third of its 10-stage presale and has seen a huge increase in investment in the last week.
The native RIA token – which will be tradeable on exchanges and used for governance decisions in the ecosystem – is currently on sale for $0.02 each.
Another token, eRIA, will exist for in-game purchases and for the distribution of rewards to match and tournament winners.
By the final stage, tokens will sell for $0.055 each - a 450% increase from stage 1 tokens, which sold at $0.01 each.
A total of 300 million of the max supply will be sold during the presale phase, with no vesting period on presale tokens.
The remaining tokens will be split between the staking pool (25%), prize pool (20%), operations (8%), INO (6%), team (5%), liquidity (4%), and advisors (2%).
How to buy Calvaria in Presale
Below is a brief summary of how to buy RIA tokens.
For more detailed steps, read through our full guide on how to buy Calvaria.
Step 1: Download Crypto Wallet and Connect
Investors will need a MetaMask (desktop) or Trust Wallet (mobile) wallet to complete a purchase of Calvaria.
After downloading one of the apps and completing the signup process, visit the Calvaria website and click 'Buy Now' and then 'Connect Wallet'.
Step 2: Acquire ETH or USDT
Next, investors will need ETH or USDT in their wallets as RIA cannot be bought directly with fiat currency.
One option is to buy ETH or USDT on another exchange and transfer it to the wallet.
However, it is easier to buy ETH directly on the Calvaria website through the third-party app Changelly.
The platform will convert credit card payments to ETH for a small fee.
Step 3: Buy RIA Tokens and Claim.
After acquiring one of the tokens, select how much RIA you would like to purchase.
Note there is a minimum purchase of 1,000 RIA, and there will be a small Ethereum transaction (gas) fee applied before the transaction is complete.
Finally, once the transaction is complete, tokens will need to be claimed.
They will be stored on the Calvaria website until all presale stages are sold out.
