From new games to active airdrops, the topic of HIVE Blockchain gaming has become increasingly complex. Todays write up contains information concerning the following projects Stardom play(free P2E), Muterra (Airdrop), Genesis League Sports (Airdrop), Hashkings (Airdrop), & Splinterlands(game updates).
As always these write ups of mine contain a few NFT giveaways, & a WAX NFT airdrop for one lucky reader.
Is the sky falling?
Just a quick observation before we begin, there are a shocking number of active airdrops on HIVE P2E games right now, while nothing will quite touch the Splinterlands SPS Airdrop.
You would be remise to miss out on any of these, so just keep that in mind, despite the fact none are totally free to take part in.
Those totally new starting out with nothing, we have all been there(I certainly have), so there are a few tips included for those starting with very little in the way of financial resources.
No.1 Stardom play(free P2E)
A new free P2E in the same vein as Rising Star, but Actors instead of Musicians.
The Conceptual design similarities stop at the mission mechanics & player NFT build, given Stardom Play is still fairly new its serviceable for what the game consists of.
The game Stardom Play is a totally Free 2 Play HIVE P2E, however without NFTs you are stuck on the Casting Call mission.
Personally I dropped $1-$2 on Stardom Play NFTs from NFTmart secondary market, from other players.
I did this to better test there title & stock up for future NFT giveaways, selling for 0.2-0.5 HIVE on average on NFTmart is a better deal in this authors opinion then their current pack sale.
You can check out Stardom play at the link below.
Bonus free HIVE P2E
When first starting out with P2E games, titles like Stardom Play or Rising Star can be quite helpful as they are free to play.
Rising Star gets a little more credit for being a little older & much more complex then Stardom Play. From real life musicians turning their work into Rising Star NFTs, to a in depth rewarding P2E in which you build a NFT band & rise to stardom.
There is actually much more to Rising Star its truly free to play & I recommend all new HIVE gamers check it out.
Given my account is currently level 92 you could say I have tested this title a little, while the crypto STARBITS is at a low price, you can use STARBITS to get STARPRO or NFTs which sell for a higher rate.
Consider checking out Rising Star Via my referral link below.
No.2 Muterra Airdrop
Muterra may not quite be in a playable alpha build just yet, however Muterra has a few sales going on currently.
While normally I stay away from red flags like second sales with no full game to speak of yet, its just good business sense.
In this authors opinion realistic project growth appears to be fairly evident so despite my better judgment the project has me intrigued.
The Muterra MUT Airdrop is fairly similar to how Splinterlands SPS airdrop functioned.
These are Monster Card NFT 👇 MUT Airdrop stats 👆
Muterra Impressed me months ago with WAX NFT integration where supporters of Muterra whom had WAX promo NFTs could transfer them to game as summoner NFTs.
Since Summoner NFTs are fairly rare they have a higher daily MUT payout 👇.
Tamer Licenses $20 (on sale now)
Crates $1 (on sale now)
Staking MUT % per day
Now as mentioned above this author has followed the Muterra Projects Development story since Muterras first alpha sale.
There is a possibility if your a long term reader of @chubb149 posts & participate in the WAX NFT airdrops you may have some of the Muterra NFTs in your WAX wallet.
So long term readers check your WAX wallet could be 🤑waiting for you to find it.
The intention behind the NFTs given away is for the value to appreciate, not always the case unfortunately, however the Muterra NFTs appear to have been the correct call.
If you want to take part in Muterra sales the game link can be found below.
Please consider using my account @chubb149 in the referral section on Muterra it helps pay for future NFT giveaways.
No.3 Hashkings Airdrop
An odd Airdrop, that is still active is for BUDSX Holders currently receive portions of the Hashkings Gen 3 Avatar packs daily.
Portions of NFT Packs?
A bit crazy sounding until you realize Smart Contracts on HIVE are only really possible through Crypto.
What does a Smart Contract have to do with an NFT pack?
Everything, the overly simplified answer its how NFT packs function.
This is why on HIVE my crypto like BUDS is found in the same place as packs like DCBETA & MCRATE.
What makes Hashkings rather unique usually these packs are only bought or sold as whole units where as Hashkings can distribute just a portion of a pack obviously only redeemable as a whole unit in game.
When you have a whole unit of any of Hashkings avatar NFT packs in your HIVE wallet & want to redeem it for the avatar NFTs inside First in game click packs on the Hashkings option menu as circled in the image above.
Then choose your avatar pack type
For this example we are opening an HKGENTHREE Pack however the instructions should be the same on all HK Avatar Packs at time of writing.
When clicking open packs you get the screen shown above.
First transfer the number of packs you wish to open to the HK vault via the circled interface.
Then hit open pack button bringing up the menu above clicking next pack then opens your pack.
Then you have successfully opened an avatar pack, avatars can be forged together, used to play Hashkings / Raids, & bought / sold on NFT mart.
Avatar NFTs have a complex Power / Level system in Hashkings, however I'm going to change the subject slightly.
To a Slight Redesign with the MOTA pool system.
Before you would stake MOTA to a region now you burn MOTA to drop seed NFTs that week based on your overall amount of MOTA burned vs the overall MOTA burned that week total.
Currently when I burn just 5 MOTA The game says this will earn this this many Seeds when distributed, however that changes based on how many MOTA players burn that week in the region.
Having tested this, in this authors opinion Seed NFTs have never been so affordable.
I burned 8 MOTA on South America last week & it rewarded me with 11 Seed NFTs for south America.
When first burned it stated I would get 80 Seeds but it was a non fixed number changing with the MOTA burned by everyone in that region.
11 Seed NFTs for 8 MOTA which would cost a little over $0.16
Already a good deal but burning BUDS can generate MOTA via the MOTA pool system.
Meaning savvy players whom own a few Land plot NFTs & Water tower NFTs (or rent them).
Can basically produce BUDS for free, BUDS can be useful for a number of reasons.
Including the BUDS staking option resulting in BUDSX, BUDSX is what the HKGENTHREE Airdrop is based around.
Here is a fun fact about BUDSX, the Hashkings team used my submitted coin design.
Suffice it to say getting an opportunity to contribute to a project like Hashkings has made me a fan for life, however its a solid project everyone should check out.
No.4 Genesis League Sports Airdrop
Now those unaware for the next 300 days or so the Splinterlands players staking SPS in game can also sign up for Genesis League Sports to earn GLX Daily.
You will need a Spell book for Splinterlands which will cost around $10, you can sign up via my referral link below.
Sports are not this authors favorite topic for a P2E, However I'm already staking SPS Playing Splinterlands, not claiming GLX is leaving money on the table.
No.5 Splinterlands tips
Splinterlands has always had a vibrant active community, combine this with a dedicated talented team, & finally give this community a method to submit game changes through SPS governance.
Sorry my happy gets a little menacing 👆, when I get this ecstatic about the potential game industry changing project Splinterlands is becoming.
Our proposals can be community submitted & voted on by SPS stakers meaning we the players implement real changes on an active quality video game.
Not only can we the players directly change the game, Start / join clans, but you can also make real money playing this fun active TCG.
Does this mean someone is being ripped off, by players making money playing Splinterlands?
For starters cards NFTs can start at $0.01 each, you can run a season on rentals for approximately $6-$8 this is usually enough for myself to clear Gold rank 1.
In a season the daily & Seasonal rewards chests combined for myself total on average around 80 Gold Chests / 25 silver chests.
The prizes combined usually double my rental costs, I rarely loose money if ever my largest deficit when I had personal problems keep me from playing for a week with that seasons rentals I lost just over $2.
Keep in mind I have played Splinterlands for years earning thousands of dollars doing so, so my schedule conflict costing me $2 once no big deal.
Usually give away more then that to readers on every HIVE post.
You will need $10 to purchase a Spell Book allowing Players to monetize Splinterlands. In this authors opinion Splinterlands is such a awesome TCG its worth a $10 Sticker price, the $10 Spell book is simply monetizing this amazing title.
Unlike any TCG this author has personally played including MTG, Pokémon, Yu-Gi-Oh, & Hearthstone. Splinterlands is a solid everchanging TCG exciting & fun in its own right.
Splinterlands just happens to also be a blockchain game.
Blockchain gaming, is not a scam Blockchain actually serves as a necessary tool. Splinterlands Game Items AKA NFTs (Non Fungible Tokens) can be owned traded or sold outside of the game itself.
Why would you want a Game Item outside a video game?
For starters you can play another video game with Splinterlands game items (NFTs), Specifically the new HIVE title Splinterforge.
Not Splinterlands, but one of their only real competitors Alien Worlds now has a Separate WAX Blockchain game Outlaw Troopers using Alien Worlds NFTs.
Nothing like any other video games ever made, Blockchain games are ideally in this authors opinion the future of gaming.
Join hundreds of thousands of players in the future of gaming, a game where your vote matters, & a game where digital asset ownership is a core function.
Splinterlands, please consider checking the game out via my referral link below.
Remember the current rewards cards are coming to an end on 1/31/2023, so stock up while you can find them cheap.
Full Details in official post below
The Arkemis the Bear, a Splinterlands limited edition promo card was a recent release & up until recently wasn't WAX wallet enabled. The error was fixed in less then a month, so now ill be adding these to a few WAX NFT Airdrops / Giveaways.
No more feel the need for envy, because as many already know, when it comes to The Bear, we make our own luck.
Quality #gamelore 👆
This is somewhat related to Blockchain, However my inner nerd just thinks the following news is cool.
How does Nuclear Energy possibly relate to Blockchain?
Blockchains can be quite the energy sponge, causing a environmental impact as most energy production methods pollute the planet.
Green energy options from solar, to geothermal, hydroelectric, & even wind farms cant function everywhere unfortunately.
By Most estimates there are around 54 years worth of Fossil Fuels on Earth total. Its not possible to extract all of that oil + since humans behave like addict's with fossil fuels, & Increase usage in spite of dwindling supplies.
Personally my estimate is, fossil fuels hit problematic scarcity levels in around 35 years or less, & Depleting most accessible fuel around 45 years from now.
This breakthrough involves nuclear Fusion that generates an energy gain, as appose to resulting as an energy deficit. Scientists have been messing with Fusion since like the 70s, however it always would require more energy then the process generates in lab tests.
A breakthrough recently resulted in the tests generating energy from sustained Hydrogen Fusion.
Not the solution to all the problems we currently face on earth, however this is welcome news, as the applications of controlled Nuclear Fusion energy production are nearly endless.
