Alien Worlds Play-to-earn NFT Game Bridges with Minecraft April 2022

2 min read

Several crypto assets can be used on multiple blockchains at the same time; via a Cryptocurrency Bridge. These connections can make it possible for people to transact between them without a trusted third party. Some common networks bridges are Ethereum, Bitcoin, FIL, DGB tokens, and ZEC. Other popular chains include Ethereum, BSC, and Fantom. Some of the best crypto bridges are listed on DeCommas. They also list active bridges.

For example, the Ethereum platform has its own token, and the use of layer 2 bridges enables users to move from one blockchain to the other. Using a layer 2 bridge means that you don’t have to touch the main network to carry out the transfer. This results in quicker transactions and lower gas fees.

In a move that is sure to excite gamers of Play-to-Earn blockchain games, Alien Worlds has announced it has reached an agreement to bridge with Minecraft, the top-selling video game on earth, which has more than 170 million players. Minecraft players can now earn Trilium (TLM), the Alien Worlds cryptocurrency.

Not surprisingly, the news of the bridge has resulted in Alien Worlds’ TLM token spiking approximately 15% in the few days since this news was announced.  This is huge news, not only for the Alien Worlds community, but for the continuing evolution and expansion of the play to earn NFT Metaverse games in general, with the massive exposure linking to a game like Minecraft brings.  For current users, and TLM holders the current price increase is a welcome short-term bump, but this news likely predicts the long term price change pattern for TLM:  As users from Minecraft get more involved in Alien Worlds and demand for Trilium (TLM) increases, so does the price.

By using this new bridge, gamers no longer have to be fully conversant in tokenization or cryptocurrency to participate in Alien Worlds’ community and play its strategy elements. Previously, blockchain gaming has been considered simple in scope; now, with over 700,000 monthly active users, Alien Worlds has expanded into the wider community through strategic alliances and tactics.

“This bridge is significant in that we are linking one of the world’s most popular decentralized games to the blockchain, and opening up a world of new possibilities for Minecraft players through our social metaverse,” says Alien Worlds co-founder Saro McKenna. 

Alien Worlds to Minecraft Bridge Means Minecraft Players Can Play to Earn Crypto assets 

With this interoperability bridge, traditional gamers will have the opportunity to earn assets, such as Trilium and soon NFTs, from completing quests. Players are able to exchange their digital assets openly and freely, enabling them to earn real-world utility by getting involved in the Alien Worlds economy and tokenomics.

McKenna believes that Alien Worlds will encourage more adoption of the wider Web3 gaming opportunities, “We think our combination of economics, team strategy and earning will convert Minecraft players of all ages into Web3 players.”

Alien Worlds runs on WAX, and supports Binance Smart Chain (BSC) and Ethereum. The bridge will provide access to Minecraft users to get initiated like all news users, with a NFT shovel to start mining for TLM as well as other useful NFT items.  The game also allows its users to earn additional digital coins by purchasing and renting land, leasing ships, going on missions, as well as by staking TLM to planets and DAOs to increase the overall share of TLM.  As the native token of the network Trilium, or TLM, it also serves as the currency for in-game missions, tools, and equipment. 

Open sourced nature of the code

The bridge will accelerate the onboarding of Minecraft gamers onto the Alien Worlds metaverse. The open sourced nature of the code is designed to empower other Minecraft servers to earn play-to-earn rewards and to allow other blockchain projects to tap into Minecraft’s vast user base.

Recognizing the value and innovation locked into the world of gaming, more bridges between the world’s passionate gaming communities makes sense. If education is key to empowering the next generation of creators then the decision to open source the code for this bridge is where Alien Worlds are pioneering the future of metaverse gaming.

Additionally, earning Trilium will allow Minecraft gamers to stake the fungible token to one of the Alien Worlds Planet DAOs, which hold some of the largest treasuries in the space. Staked Trilium translates into voting power to determine control of planetary treasuries.

It is no secret that leading figures in the world of blockchain consider gaming as one way to encourage mass adoption of blockchain technology. Now that play-to-earn models like Alien Worlds are spreading their wings into the hands of traditional gamers it will be interesting to monitor the progress, feedback and potential to build more NFT utility into the games of the future.
