OpenBlox is an EVM-compatible NFT gaming platform where users can play as Blox, NFT creatures with rare traits and features that determine their functions during the battlefield.
OpenBlox has a Web3 app called RunBlox, which has already amassed over 10,000 active users. The project is bringing three new titles to its metaverse, powered by the Avalanche blockchain.
The Bloxverse Coming to Avalanche
The OpenBlox metaverse, called Bloxverse, consists of three interconnected worlds, the Water Layer, the Fire Layer, and the Green Layer.
Each layer has its own race of Blox avatars and their respective enemies, who will try to take control over players and their resources.
- The Water Layer is the game’s oceanic environment wherein the Hardshell race and the Shark race inhabit.
- The Fire Layer is a lava world and home to the Techno race, NFTs equipped with high-end weapons. Players can also choose to play as Dragons, a race that can clash against the Techno Blox characters.
- The Green Layer is the natural habitat of Flowers, a race at constant war against the Insects. Both types of players will have to fight to garner resources throughout the ecosystem.
OpenBlox is based on 7,998 genesis Blox NFTs, and each Blox has six traits: Head, Body, Arm, Leg, Horn, and Back. The last four traits affect the Blox’s attack methods and skills.
Players can breed new Bloxes to bring offspring that inherit and mix with their parent’s looks, attributes, and skills.
OpenBlox Game Titles Coming to Avalanche
One of OpenBlox’s main objectives is to bridge the real world with the digital world, combining health, entertainment, and earning.
Each title presents cross-gaming features allowing users to interact, build and roam with their Blox avatars in a linked metaverse full of opportunities.
RunBlox is OpenBlox’s move-to-earn app, which introduces the SocialFi element, which connects social media with blockchain technology.
Users who buy an NFT sneaker can walk, jog or run outdoors. But they deteriorate like regular shoes. Avalanche tracks users’ activity level to distribute RUX tokens, which can be used to upgrade their accounts and buy and sell NFT sneakers on the in-app marketplace.
Rogueblox is a turn-based deck-builder game that might remind players of games like Slay the Spire. A Roguelike combined with card games where users pick their Blox NFTs provided with a deck with basic attack and defense cards.
Players must think strategically to defeat their opponents and deplete their energy resources.
ActionBlox is a multiplayer online role-playing game (MORPG) where guilds build their teams to battle enemies in a world that forms part of the Bloxverse.
Players can build their teams by sending invitations to other players they find across the landscape to fight and master new challenges.
LandBlox is a farming game where users can plant seeds collected from RogueBlox battles, which will grow into fruit that can be sold in the marketplace or used to recover their Blox avatars’ health from AnctionBlox or Rogueblox.
OpenBlox is creating a subnet on Avalanche, and all these upcoming titles will leverage the speed, scalability, and low fees in the Avalanche blockchain.
OpenBlox features a built-in marketplace where users can buy and sell in-game NFTs and items.
Users can check their game items, breed their Blox NFTs, and create an NFT for the game using the platform’s customised system, all in a peer-to-peer fashion with low fees.
OpenBlox has three tokens: a platform token: $OBX —used across multi games, and two in-game tokens: $RGL, for rewards in RogueBloxm, and $RUX, which rewards users in the RunBlox app.
OBX’s primary purpose is to be the governance token of the OpenBlox ecosystem since it provides users with voting rights and allows them to submit protocol proposals.
Users also pay a fee in OBX for each Blox they breed. The fee goes to the community treasury. And lastly, users can stake OBX to receive rewards in all games.
The $RUX token allows users to level up or enhance their NFT Sneakers or pay for minting fees.
$RGL can be used to receive extra battle experience. Outside of the game, users can buy unique in-game assets with RGL.
Final Thoughts: What’s New on Avalanche?
Avalanche has proven to have all the necessary resources to keep welcoming stellar Web3 and NFT projects into its ecosystem. Its NFT market share continues to grow despite a bearish outlook for the overall crypto market.
Here are some of the NFT collections that have received considerable attention from the AVAX NFT community lately.
Smol Joe NFTs
Smol Joes is the most popular collection in the Avalanche NFT market, created in early 2022 by the team behind Trader Joe —one of the largest decentralised exchanges on the network.
These tiny 8-bit characters have a floor price of 390 AVAX and a market capitalization of 14,664 AVAX.
Smol Joes has experienced considerable success despite being a young player in the NFT game on Avalanche and throughout the crypto community. Its success led to the creation of three sibling collections, Smol Lands, Smol Creeps, and Smol APAs.
Wolfi Land is a collection of 1000 Wolfi NFTs on Avalanche designed in 2021.
By owning one Wolfi, users can receive airdrops from 3rd party projects, use them for nonprofit or profit purposes, get an official digital artbook of Wolfi, and buy official merchandise from the project’s official store.
The Wolfi Land live mint came on October 12, with NFTs being minted in less than 10 seconds after going live. The project currently has 294 owners, a total volume of 9,689 AVAX and a floor price of 9.52 AVAX.
