Star Atlas is a virtual gaming metaverse based in the year 2620. In this distant future, three major factions have emerged; (1)The MUD Territory governed by humankind, (2)The ONI Region as a consortium of alien races, and (3)The Ustur Sector controlled by sentient androids.
These factions are in an ongoing struggle for resources, territorial conquest, and political domination. You, a faction citizen of Star Atlas, will have the ability to influence the outcome of this intergalactic conflict while creating the opportunity to earn rewards for your contributions.
This document describes the adventure ahead for new recruits. The metaverse introduces a unique gaming experience through
the combination of both traditional core game and blockchain
The game will be using 2 tokens, the ATLAS and POLIS.
POLIS distribution will take effect in two phases. The first phase consists of a 20% sale of the governance token during the Galactic Asset Offering. Following the GAO, the exclusive ability to generate POLIS relies on staking of ATLAS currency.
ATLAS staking will be delivered in-browser while game development is in preproduction, and will subsequently be accessible in-game once version 1 of the minigame is released. Players should note, there is a trade off that takes place to earn POLIS. ATLAS that is reserved for POLIS rewards is not accessible for any other in-game requirement. In other words, a player can either stake, or use that currency balance to play.
Asset Destruction and Deflationary Mechanics
An innovative aspect of Star Atlas is the multi-tiered engagement zones. This mechanic enables players to engage in riskier activity, with the allure of greater rewards. Those players brave enough explore the deepest regions of space forfeit the safety provided by NPC-populated zones. The equivalent to playing for ‘pink sheets, ’ or Play for Keys™ as it has been coined by the team.
Through seamless smart contract asset assignment, players entering these zones put their ships and crew on the line. A loss of a ship leads to a permanent destruction (burn) of said NFT. The victor in these engagements will claim spoils of the battle in the form of salvaged NFTs; however, at only a fractional random share of what was destroyed.
Further, certain farmed materials are non-permanent, and will be destroyed as they are consumed for use. i.e. materials used in construction (reduced return when deconstructing an item for material recapture), fuel, temporary boosts, etc.
Finally, covered in greater detail later, the Star Atlas development team is also committed to a token repurchase and burn program, based on both traditional revenues and in-game revenues.
The result of this mechanic is a natural deflation of assets in existence over time.
Particularly as more players seek the rewards in the most dangerous security zones.
