Axie Infinity and Decentraland are the biggest names in the non-fungible token (NFT) and metaverse ecosystems. While Axie Infinity brought blockchain gaming to the front row, Decentraland has become the beacon of the metaverse landscape.
However, both projects have largely struggled in the face of crypto winter, and value-driven investors are looking for more promising crypto gems to buy early into. Calvaria: Duels of Eternity is one such making the rounds.
This article explores the potential of the Calvaria ecosystem and how to get in early.
What Is Calvaria?
Launched in October 2022, Calvaria: Duels of Eternity is a digital collectible card game in the same fold as Gods Unchained. The crypto game aims to revolutionize the blockchain gaming landscape by using gamified components to fast-track the adoption of cryptocurrencies. To do this, Calvaria makes each player ambassador of blockchain and crypto gaming.
The blockchain project is free-to-play (F2P) and play-to-earn (P2E). Players are required to assemble the best deck of cards and duel one another for the ultimate crown. In return for winning games, players are rewarded with the network token, RIA.
However, the token reward is only applicable to its P2E mode. Each card is a non-fungible token (NFT) which makes them intrinsically valuable given their unique attributes and traits.
The F2P option is geared toward players who prefer to avoid interfacing with virtual assets. But this does not make it any less incentive-driven. The F2P mode grants players access to real-world goods and services and scholarship and advertising opportunities.
Meanwhile, the P2E mode offers so much more in return. Players can easily upgrade their NFT collections, gain royalties from secondary sales of the cards, wager on tournaments, sell their decks, cards and upgrades, and gain exclusive access to new NFT collections, advert and scholarship opportunities, and loot box drops regularly.
Given the recent year’s growing interest in NFT and metaverse ecosystems, this feature-rich array has driven interest in the project. The metaverse landscape hit a record $38.85 billion in valuation, with recent reports putting its compound annual growth rate (CAGR) from 2022 to 2030 at 39.4%.
With both ecosystems becoming interwoven, Calvaria’s potential is not to be missed. So far, its RIA token has posted huge growth in its presale investment stage. The platform token has raised $1.89 million in its fourth fundraising round. The digital token is also selling fast, and early-bird investors can get 40 RIA tokens for 1 USDT before the next round begins.
So, how can you buy RIA at a bargain and take advantage of a potential Decentraland in the coming months?
How to Buy RIA?
The RIA token is a virtual asset, meaning investors need crypto-facing assets to buy them. To own the digital currency in your investment basket, follow these steps:
The first step is to visit the official website of the Calvaria project. Users can click the hyperlink to be redirected straight to the project homepage.
In reality, cryptocurrencies are just data stored on a distributed ledger called a blockchain, making them impractical to hold physically. To store them, investors need to own crypto wallets. The most popular is the Ethereum-facing web wallet, Metamask. Users can easily create a Metamask wallet on a PC or a smartphone.
Once the Calvaria website is up, tap on the ‘Buy Now’ icon on the right-hand corner of the screen. This will automatically redirect you to the presale stage.
Click on the accompanying ‘Connect Wallet’ and select from a range of options. Input the passcode and connect both platforms to interface with the Calvaria network.
The Calvaria project currently supports only two crypto assets for making a direct investment. These are ETH and the top fiat-backed stablecoin, USDT. Metamask supports the direct purchase of ETH on its platform if you don’t have any.
Alternatively, direct transfers of either of these tokens are possible at any time from a centralized crypto exchange like Binance to the Metamask wallet.
The final step is to buy the RIA token. All that needs to be done is input the amount of RIA to purchase and select a payment crypto asset. Click on ‘Buy’ and follow the on-screen prompts to complete the purchase.
