PVU token is the native currency in the game Plant vs Undead enabling token holders to play, invest funds, and become part of the game. Plant vs Undead is a multiplayer game where users can earn real assets, i.e. plants. The team of developers started connecting the game with NFT technology and the audience showed immense interest in this approach.
The immense growth of similar strategy games in the past few years says about their popularity. Taking into account that the NFT-market is on the rise, the format is rather promising. The developers of the games have combined two trendy phenomena thus connecting the game with the crypto world. The players appreciate the addictive experience of earning tokens.
According to the plot, the plants turned into fighters to protect trees from Undead, which appeared as a result of disease coming from meteors and turning animals into Undead. At this, Seeds also became special, capable of protecting Mother Trees. Players don’t have to own NFTs to start playing. It’s enough to have a mother tree and 6 basic plants to start playing and earning as players sell their plants in the marketplace. The multiplayer mode is available in the game. If it’s a single-player, then the survival mode is on.
NFTs games play a huge role in the development of the NFT market. The real ownership and the possibility to earn real value attract more people to the industry and contribute to the mass adoption of unfamiliar notions in a playful way. Also, PVU removes the gap between ordinary and NFT games.
Players should grow seeds into unique plants that can be sold or bought within the native marketplace. Lack of initial investment barrier makes the game accessible for all participants.
The game is targeted at mobile players of any age and gender making it possible to play anywhere at any time. Gamers should only have mobile devices for that. A typical customer, however, is a fan of the PvZ genre and belongs to the age group under 35 that includes both men and women using a mobile device. It is not necessary to be experienced in gaming to start playing. Also, players should not have knowledge of the cryptocurrency market to play this NFT game.
Gamers find it a real pleasure to own something in their favorite games. In addition, blockchain technology has turned gaming assets into investment options and a new means of making money. This is how crypto-games become not entertainment only but an investment. As the game belongs to the community, users are entitled to decide upon the changes, features, and other details.
The marketplace of the game was launched in July 2021 offering two types of assets: Seeds and Lands. It takes 24 hours for Seeds to get ready and then new plants start growing randomly. The period of growth takes 12 hours, which is the stage after which plants can be used on Farm.
The Farm also started working in July 2021. Currently, there is a fully functional beta version with beautiful graphics and well-developed gameplay. The game offers three types of gaming that include free-to-play, play-to-earn, and competitive gaming. Those who choose free to play gaming, don’t need an initial investment to start playing as the game offers basic plants for such players. Play-to-earn gaming can be chosen in all modes of the game. The players can see at once that NFT plants come with stronger features. As for competitive gaming, there is a “one versus one” mode with two players competing on the leaderboard. However, other modes can be introduced as well.
The token is an in-game currency that is used to purchase Seeds and Plants. It is also used to exchange NFT assets and reward players. The token is compatible with Binance Smart Chain and can be stored on it. The total supply is 300 million tokens, and it is fixed.
The team and advisors of the game have their tokens locked for 6 months. 5% of tokens are released each month, so the distribution of tokens will take 25 months after IDO to make the team pursue initial goals and stay committed to the project.
Plant vs Undead IDO
The company behind the platform arranged the IDO to sell tokens to investors and to cover the setup cost. The token sale was organized in 3 stages: private sale, presale, and IDO. Customers with investments that exceed 500 USD had to lock their assets for their gradual further release in the same way as it is done with the tokens that belong to the team. The IDO started on June 15th and ended on June 30th.
Initially, it was planned to sell 60 million tokens. 30 million tokens are allocated to contribute to the development of the community and for marketing purposes. 60 million tokens more are allocated to the Reserve to reward the members who stake tokens. The tokens are used to pay interest for holding PVU tokens. The same amount (60 million PVU) is spent on the ecosystem that allows the team to develop the game further. 30 million tokens are given for the platform reward to motivate players to earn tokens as they take part in competitions and versatile gaming activities.
The developers try to create a coordinated, anti-cheat system. The system has passed the audit with Solidity. The auditors of the company reviewed the code of PlantCore and SaleClockAuction contracts on July 29th, 2021.
The company tries to be transparent and explain all its expenditures in the official blog and whitepaper of the game. The platform has official accounts in different social networks and actively communicates with its users. Since the popularity of Tower Defense games has been proven with time, the community is rapidly growing.
