Inspiration

Blockchain and VR technology bring us the true freedom to a new world.

How we built it

Planet2nd is a MMORPG metaverse and 3D mobile game engine. Players can creat their own games, discover, interact with others, fight battles or play social casino games. Planet2nd is also an UGC platform, which provides users with tools and 3D materials, on PC and mobile apps. Users can build 3D contents or mobile games without any programming knowledge.

The concept is Metaverse As A Service. In the Planet2nd, defi, gamefi Guildfi are combined. The are an NFT market and NFT claiming platform which enable players to trade or transfer their in-game NFT (pets, equipment, wearable or other assets) or withdraw the in-game earnings.

We support Play over Earn. More than twenty UGC games have been released by players and creators. (https://youtube.com/channel/UCa2pliOUh-yfsqeeG8zXdhg/videos) Among them, social casino games improve the rates of returning players. Our testing version brought in 10 thousand Daily Active Users in 60 days without any token incentives.

NFTs in Planet2nd are rentable, upgradable, combinable and programmable. In planet2nd, your cryptopunks, bored ape and cyberkongz NFT are playable characters. They can improve their game level through training and social casino games.

To keep creators engaged and earning money, we provide a tax sharing algorithm. Land-owners may build their kingdom by inviting citizens and get part of the royalty or tax from the marketplace transactions. It's called Governing Income. For landowners, the more citizens they invited, the more tax income they may acquire.

Challenges we ran into

Time Management; Improve skills of new team members;

Accomplishments that we're proud of

1.Planet2nd has the ability to run on relatively lower-end smart phones and PCs. 2.More than twenty UGC games released, including several social casino games. See https://youtube.com/channel/UCa2pliOUh-yfsqeeG8zXdhg/videos 3.The openness of the platform, the tokenomic matrix.

What we learned

Good products never come easily.

What's next for Planet2nd

1.Marketing and expand the scalability of the servers. 2.By developing node servers, we enable users to secure the proper functioning of the Game Engine. This pattern ensures that Planet2nd is a Distributed Open Metaverse not owned by a single company and Planet2nd will not be shut down due to any individual decision.

Better Color, Avatars and Scenes Just like Roblox and Sandbox, Planet2nd is an UGC metaverse game. However, Planet2nd delivers brighter and richer colors with hi-resolution rendering. You can tell the difference when importing the same 3d object - avatars and scenes look more energetic in Planet2nd. As well, through advanced modeling with smoothing groups, Planet2nd further reduces the hardware usage for rendering. Therefore, the scalability is improved, compared to the others.

Different Age Groups, Different Needs Roblox is popular with younger users between the ages of 9 and 12, whereas Planet2nd targets 15 to 35 year-old. While a teenager may choose to play Pet Simulator on Roblox, an adult may prefer a social casino game on Planet2nd - powered by smart contracts.

Unlike the younger players of Roblox, the users on Planet2nd have more purchasing power. Such adult players are more likely to monetize their contributions through building games, or creating and selling in-game NFTs. Planet2nd provides a ready-made web3 no-code solution to facilitate crypto payments, NFT tracking, assets transfer and sports betting—even fundraising for sophisticated games.

Easier to master, powerful incentive to game developers On Roblox or Planet2nd, players can build 3D contents and simple games without any programming knowledge. However, to make more detailed, fun and original games on Roblox, players should expect to invest around 2 months of study. Planet2nd, though, only requires one or two weeks to learn.

As to the incentive to developers, Roblox follows a profit-oriented model, while Planet2nd has a creator-oriented approach. To publish a game and make it popular to earn money, developers have to pay Roblox a heavy sum. On average, Roblox pays game developers 29 cents per dollar spent, whereas Planet2nd pays developers a whopping 75% of its revenue.

Creator Oriented Economic Model Increasingly, gameplay is transitioning from a form of entertainment to a form of expression. The point of the game is to make a game. Planet2nd is not only a new way of playing, but also a viable method of earning cash and creating a unique identity, while connecting players socially.

Planet2nd is completely open for players to create self-sustaining, user-generated worlds, with player-owned economies to match. To keep creators engaged and earning money, Planet2nd enables token offering for games with a monthly income of 50 thousand dollars or more, or any Kingdom or guild with more than 300 members. In addition, landowners or creators may invite friends and receive a portion of their transaction fees from the NFT marketplace.

Decentralized vs centralized Different from Roblox, Planet2nd is a Distributed Open Metaverse, not owned by a single company, can not be shut down by a single individual. This is done by distributed node servers so that users can collectively secure the proper functions of the Game Engine. At the same time, Governance tokens are distributed as staking rewards to node owners.

Team and developer's community Most of the team are veterans in mobile gaming industry. One of our founding members built the mobile game ‘I AM MT’, which brought in 7m active users monthly, produced 16M dollars in revenues per month several years ago. Another co-founder owns and operates the global biggest developer online community, which now has 9M active users and 30M page views per day. It is predictable - planet2nd can develop a sizable community to help content creators, influencers and community builders with growth and monetization.
