Prior to the blockchain era, gamers spent so much time playing franchised games, and the only reward for spending countless hours was the thrill and adventure. However, the blockchain space is quickly introducing a system where players can generate revenue from the games they interact with. Even more interesting is that players own 100% of all in-game assets they generate from playing the game.
One such play-to-earn game is the newly released blockchain card game, Calvaria: Duels of Eternity.
What Is Calvaria?
Calvaria: Duels of Eternity is an online strategy game that allows players to participate in tournaments through cards representing different in-game characters. Each card is a non-fungible token (NFT) with unique abilities and traits.
Players are tasked with assembling the best deck of cards to battle one another. To do this, players employ complex strategies and tactics in a bid to get rewards and win various upgrades. The winning player is then rewarded with eRIA.
The blockchain game is also crafted in a way wherein the players have 100% control of their in-game assets. These assets can be earned from playing the game or participating in other platform activities. Players can monetize these in-game assets in the Calvaria NFT marketplace for passive income.
Calvaria Is on a Mission
The crypto space is still in its adoption phase as more users enter the ecosystem. However, the ecosystem's rapid growth and user engagement speed are quite slow. This is due to a need for more projects focused on the user and the complexity of the technology itself.
To help fast-track this process, the Calvaria team set out to make a game wherein every player becomes a pseudo-ambassador for crypto. This is done via its multiple game modes, which appeal to both crypto-loving players and more passive gamers. The Calvaria game is split into the free-to-play (F2P) and play-to-earn (P2E) modes.
Both enable players to access the entire functionality of the Calvaria with one key difference; the F2P players don't earn the in-game RIA currency. Aside from this, they can participate in seasonal tournaments, upgrade their in-game assets, and gain scholarships.
However, the P2E mode comes with even more functionalities. Given that each card is an NFT, players can easily gather the best deck of cards and sell them to others. With unique and rare traits, these cards significantly increase players' winning potential.
Also, these cards can then be sold on the Calvaria NFT marketplace, and the best thing about this is the initial owner gets a certain royalty payment. This is a great way to generate passive income from playing blockchain-powered games.
Aside from this, players can also upgrade their NFT-powered cards, earn scholarships and advertising opportunities, open mystery loot boxes, and do much more.
As more projects launch, in-game currencies are becoming a norm in the blockchain gaming landscape. However, RIA is a bit different from the herd. For a start, it powers the entire online strategy game, meaning every transaction is executed with it, and players are simultaneously rewarded with the token.
However, it also provides another passive income opportunity for its holders. On the subsequent launched project, RIA token holders will be able to stake their digital assets and earn more of it.
RIA's Fascinating Presale Round
The Calvaria team is currently developing the game and is in the presale stage. So far, the team has generated over $2.59 million in investments. This shows strong interest in the project and the growing belief in its ability to gain traction in the coming months.
RIA is in its last presale stage, with only 16% of the token left to be purchased. Investors can now buy 30.77 $RIA for 1 USDT.
