Alien Worlds Raises Over $2m to Bring NFTs to Life
Alien Worlds is the second largest NFT blockchain game in the world with over 4,000 unique users per hour
First-generation collectible-only NFTs were “dead” but Alien Worlds’ NFTs come to life with their gaming utility
March 19, 2021 — Zug, Switzerland — Alien Worlds, the second largest blockchain game in the world by users, has raised over $2 million in a sale of its utility token Trilium to selected private investors. Alien Worlds, the NFT defi metaverse, has been a viral hit with gamers who love this competitive extensible platform that is ‘simple to start but difficult to master’.
Notable investors included Animoca Brands — the visionary NFT company whose stable of runaway hits includes The Sandbox and F1® Delta Time; Longling Capital, creators of China’s Meitu app; 3Commas and Digital Assets Group. Additional private sale investors included One Block, Hillrise Capital, Moonwhale Ventures, Momentum 6, LD Capital and X21 Digital.
Alien Worlds’ Trilium token has been proof-of-work mined since December 2020 by gamers keen to become cryptocurrency miners for themselves, without the overheads of bitcoin mining. Gamers can start earning Trilium and NFTs for free within minutes at play.alienworlds.io.
Trilium is used throughout all six Planet DAOs (decentralised autonomous organisations) in the Alien Worlds metaverse, as a governance token to track power. Trilium can be used by gamers to take over competing Planets’ treasuries; and to increase the mining yield of Land and other Alien Worlds NFTs.
Animoca Brands’ Chairman and co-founder Yat Siu commented:
“Alien Worlds is among the top gaming DAPPs out there and shares our vision for NFTs and the future of game content tokenization. We look forward to collaborating closely and investigating options to leverage some of the exciting IP and brands we work with.”
Alien Worlds co-founder Michael Yeates describes the degree of interest in the private sale as overwhelming:
“NFTs are being discovered by the masses right now, and we are the second largest NFT game just a few weeks after our launch. People want to be part of our unique game where NFTs have layers of powers built-in, powers which users add to through their game play.”
Saro McKenna, co-founder, commented:
“Alien Worlds is where NFTs come to life. We welcome thousands of new unique players per week from all over the world, who love competing with each other to select the best NFT mining rig, watch their Trilium reserves grow and take over richer Planets.”
About Alien Worlds
Alien Worlds is an NFT defi metaverse. The in-game currency — Trilium, an ERC-20 token — incentivises explorers to play games and must be staked to participate in governance. Planets within the metaverse are decentralised autonomous organisations which receive daily Trilium from the central metaverse smart contracts. Explorers engage through mining by acquiring and renting land, and voting for Planetary governance to impact Trilium payouts. The metaverse is extensible because Planets are independent and can offer their own games UIs and NFTs. Indeed, users are already doing this.
