Game Economy in My Neighbor Alice

The ALICE token: now available on Binance Launchpool

Introducing ALICE token

ALICE is the native currency in My Neighbor Alice. Even though it’s in the form of a “token” on the blockchain, it is really like a membership status for players in the game. Holding ALICE token entitles you to exclusive experience in the game, to vote for development proposals and to purchase items on the marketplace.

  1. In-game currency: ALICE could be used in the marketplace for purchasing assets and also special skill sets in the game (e.g. Fertilizers)
  2. User designed revenue models: for land and assets in the game, owners could design rentals and visitor fees features. For example, users could charge for players that want to visit the museum on the island;
  3. Special game content (DLC): certain quests and special features (opening a store) are only available to ALICE holders that stake the tokens for a fixed amount of time
  4. Social feature: send ALICE tokens in the chats with neighbors; present assets to visitors; exchange NFT assets;
  5. Play to earn: to encourage players to contribute to the game and to maintain traction, there will be experience points awarded for quests completed. Those could be exchanged into in-game assets that could be transacted.

NFTs representing in-game assets

Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) are a technology to create and represent unique assets on the blockchain. Different from fungible tokens like ALICE (or Ethereum), NFTs are all unique from each other and their transaction histories can be tracked on-chain. It is a technology perfect for representing assets in the game. With in-game marketplace and other general purpose marketplaces, players could exchange their NFTs and purchase the ones that they like. My Neighbor Alice creates a wide range of use cases for the NFT usage.

  1. NFT minting through staking and liquidity provision: holders of Alice tokens will be able to mint different in-game assets through staking or providing liquidity for ALICE token on decentralized exchanges. They could decide to sell these on the marketplace to import to the game and use it. The rarity of NFT will be tied to the time and value of the token staked and that there are assets that could be only acquired through ALICE.
  2. Collateral filled NFTs: NFTs are collateralized for a percentage of their value. In case liquidity is needed, burning the NFT will free the underlying asset. This feature adds more liquidity and security for NFT holders.
  3. NFT rentals: rent out assets (e.g. tractor for harvesting to users; a more durable fish rod; a key for a specific quest; rent a spot on the plot of someone to access certain materials). Rent plot for yield (e.g. create a community of players, combine strength (Someone is a farmer, someone is a fisherman, decorate the islands together with other players)
