In today’s interview Chris will give us a brief look into the world of Planet IX game development, and how you can start to play and earn today.
SARAH, web3earner: Welcome back to web3earner’s interview series where we talk to the teams behind your favourite web3 earning projects. My name is Sarah and I’m so happy to have Chris here with me today from the planet IX team.
In today’s interview Chris will give us a brief look into the world of Planet IX, it’s game development and how you can start playing and earning today.
Chris, how are you?
CHRIS, Planet IX: : I’m doing very well thank you Sarah.
How are you today?
SARAH, web3earner: I’m very, very good!
SARAH, web3earner: Let us begin, can you give us a brief look into what planet IX is?
CHRIS, Planet IX: Of course, so Planet IX is a web3 based strategy game. It’s the world’s biggest strategy game or NFT game, with over 2 billion in game assets. Your goal as an agent in our game is to acquire picks, it’s the land tiles in the game that you then use to build bigger and bigger areas that we call territories. Then, you take your territories and you stake them on our DeFi platform and you start earning yield, in our native ERC20 token $IXT.
SARAH, web3earner: Beautiful.
SARAH, web3earner: How can people earn with Planet IX?
CHRIS, Planet IX: Okay, so there’s numerous ways of earning a token in the game. First of all we have our DeFi platform. Currently, we offer five different staking opportunities. So different entities that you stake in order to earn a residual income from your assets.
We of course have a secondary Marketplace that we just released now actually. Our own proprietary Marketplace for all assets. But of course you have secondary marketplaces such as OpenSea. We have a huge trading volume on BitKeep, for example. So there’s always the opportunity to buy and sell and trade assets. It’s a farming game, we want it to be a free-to-play concept. So the harder you hustle, the more work you put in, the more hours you put into the game, the higher the rewards will be. We have a huge demand for these assets because we have short-term players and long-term players.
We currently offer, I actually did these calculations yesterday, currently we offer over 1 million $IXT in the monthly payouts. So with today’s token value, that’s 400 000 each month that players are earning currently. So even though this bear market, we’re trying our best to to keep floating.
SARAH, web3earner: You guys are definitely floating, that’s some pretty impressive figures.
CHRIS, Planet IX: Yeah no, it’s insane we have over 100,000 actual players or active wallets in the game currently.
SARAH, web3earner: That’s so good, amazing, I love it!
SARAH, web3earner:And finally what is planet IX working on that will bring more value or create new opportunities for people earning within web3?
CHRIS, Planet IX: I mean we’re in such an interesting era of web3 gaming. Some people refer to it as web5 gaming, you know building the bridge between web 2 and web3. We’ve seen the play-to-earn giants rise and fall, unfortunately many of them. We believe the future of web3 gaming is the bridge. We need to make it more fun and interactive. We we need to tap into eSports, make bracket systems and there’s no better way to do this than on chain with contracts handling everything.
So we’re super bullish on this. Our vision is to become the leader when it comes to onboarding new players into the amazing world of web3 gaming. There’s tons of new staking concepts, more gameplay, more assets being released every week in our game.
SARAH, web3earner: Yeah we’re super bullish on play-to-earn as well and you guys are definitely leading and at the forefront of the play-to-earn industry. We’re so excited for you guys.
Thank you for joining me today Chris, it was a pleasure having you on and hearing what you guys are up to and what’s to come this year. Thank you to all those that have tuned in, we will see you next time!
CHRIS, Planet IX: Thank you guys, thanks Sarah.
