MarsColony 👽 - play to earn, colonization game-fi with full community control [Approved]

MarsColony

Play to earn, colonization game-fi with full (100%) token allocation to the community

Proposal overview

Mars Colony is a colonization framework built into a multi-planet Metaverse starting from Mars that connects gamified concept with elements of DAO, DeFi, and NFT enabling fair power distribution and decision-making process within one Colony.

MarsColony provides its users a unique opportunity to join the project as early settlers, claim land, and start building the Colony, earning CLNY tokens.

Launch stages

  1. Initial NFT Land claiming where users will be able to claim a land plot on Mars to become first settlers
  2. Power accumulation, where settlers will start earning and minting Colony’s governance tokens (CLNY)
  3. Economy & governance, where the governance tokens gain decision-making power and economic value
  4. Play to Earn, where settlers will be able to engage in an economic battle to grow Colony and earn

Important: 100% of the minted NFT Land & CLNY tokens will be controlled by the community members directly or via DAO. For details check out the article Tokenomic →

Proposal ask

Since its inception, MarsColony project was established to be community-driven and self-funded. We are on the finish line of the launch project on the mainnet, and are seeking funds to facilitate development and gain early traction.

We are looking for $50k worth of ONE, which should be split into portions and released by milestones:

Milestone Tranche
Launching game contracts on a test-net (NFT land minting, land upgrading, CLNY minting) $10k
After forming a DAO with multisig (ideally 5-out-of-9 ) $10k
After launching MarsColony on the Harmony mainnet with audit $10k
After 1K daily active users (with video launch, full PR promotion) $10k
After 10k daily active users (with a detailed roadmap, governance process $10k

How funds will be utilized:

Metrics for success

We believe that the biggest value of MarsColony is the community, who are at the same time users, investors, players. Within the first year of Colony, we aim to reach 21,000 monthly active members (players)

The world is unpredictable, so we have two growth plans for both cases: if the Launch event is Successful or Unsuccessful. Growth strategy and efforts will be different for both options, but both targets are more than achievable.

Hey everyone!

So much yes. This looks great, this is now making me want to jump into the BSC version too :stuck_out_tongue:

Edit - Then I see the plot prices :open_mouth: Have you had any thoughts on the Harmony plot prices?

Hey @NetworkNotFound thank you for the feedback) I am really happy that you found it exciting. To be honest, personally, I can’t wait until the contracts are deployed to start my own colony :tada: :confetti_ball: :balloon:

BSC contracts are not active. Please do not claim them.
It was the first version of our contracts and from the game perspective, they are outdated. I do recommend you to wait until we upgrade and re-deploy them. Claimed NFT pieces will be migrated to new contracts.

The price is not finalized yet, but we think about 250 ONE per one plot for early supporters and 500 ONE for those who will want to join MarsColony when it’s already established.

@NetworkNotFound we would love to hear your thoughts on how many ONE tokens should be worth one plot? :thinking:

I think your right on the money with around the 200-500 mark for the quantity of available land. I would feel comfortable buying a couple of plots. There are lots of NFT projects, some with utility and some without that have far less total supply and are struggling to sell them all. The cost is a hard one.

But it’s a fantastic idea and I can’t wait to see some videos on how it’s all going to work.

Grats on the instant approval!

Edit: Also would be happy to jump on testnet and have a play. I usually do with most projects if it’s available.

Wow, that was fast! The proposal was approved within 24 hours :blue_heart: Thank you :blue_heart:

Do you guys have a betta tester community that we can collaborate with? :thinking: Or what is the best place to announce the testnet release?

Is that mean that we can start talking with the first 9 governors?

Thank you for the feedback. What about the idea if we set up two variables for discount, by time and by amount. How many pieces do you think should be sold with the bottom price and how many with high price ?

:blue_heart:

Hey, are you going cross-chain, or will Harmony be the only chain for MarsColony deployment?

Let’s link on Telegram so we can discuss things like KYC, fund distribution schedule, etc. See the Telegram link above. You’re certainly encouraged to continue using this thread to discuss with the community, and most definitely for sharing updates and offering transparency on the project. Please see your messages.

Thanks.

Hey @shestov as you see we have deployed some contracts on BSC earlier, but it’s on pause not. For now, the priority is to launch the game on Harmony and gain real users in Colony.

Obviously, the future is multichain, and Colony Settlers could be deployed on chains where MarsColony gets user interest.

Responded :wink:

Thanks for posting this here @Nikita_live. Can the team please post to the official Discord, Reddit, and Telegram communities for maximum exposure? The post should introduce the community to the project, speaking to what it’s about (since most of our wallets/holders are not on this forum), and invite them to the testnet beta.

Thanks!

I think your project will bring Nice Gamifi & after trying the test environment I’m very confident that the community will give feedback as it is a really attractive project.
I’ll be around helping, testing,… Anything the team would need. Marketing, Social Network… Holler and I’ll be there trying to help.
Congrats on such a great project, idea, and good-looking first feeling.
