If you missed out on Alien Worlds and R-Planet, make sure you do not miss out on Farsite, a DeFi Powered Ethereum 2 Game.

Straight from their Guide:

Farsite is a blockchain-powered sandbox MMO RTS game with elements of adventure in a sci-fi setting based on a post-apocalyptic story.

The game is built using three layers of distributed ledgers with a combination of Ethereum (layer 1), Polygon (layer 2) and ZK Relay (layer 3). Ethereum is the first layer which will grant secure ownership of all the game items and protect the integrity of the game rules. It will also control the game Credits (FAR tokens) supply and emission. This will also allow the games items to be traded on external markets.

The game is introducing cNFTs, a proposed standard for ERC-20 collateral staking on Non-Fungible Totkens. This cNFT will be used to allow gamers to stake on Non-Fungible Tokens for borrowing against game assets which the gamers will own.

From their own game guide, Farsite says:

Simply put, cNFT is an NFT that holds a certain amount of ERC-20 as a collateral inside.

That said, a cNFT item can be used in many different ways:

  • Playing the game – fly the Ship to haul goods, complete contracts, fight for loot, explore the universe, search for rare materials, act as a mercenary, to name a few;
  • As a collateral to borrow Credits;
  • As a storage of value (HODLing a Ship);
  • As a source for Credits (disassembling an item will release staked Credits);
  • For sale (list it on OpenSea or an internal marketplace).

If that doesn’t excite you, wait to see you see the ship you’ll get to command.

Ships on Farsite

Those are some of the ships that will be available through acquiring the blueprints to build them. Farsite is describing blueprints as crafting recipes which will describe the item, materials and facilities required to produce the ship in the blueprint.

Every item in game can be produced by the gamers. There will be limits placed on items around original and copied blueprints.
