SimBiotes Introduces Brand New NFT Mechanics in a Collaborative Metaverse Game
The SimBiotes ecosystem will launch its highly anticipated Simbiotes Drop sale in November 2021. The event will drop a collection of 10,000 ‘Embryonic Simbiotes’, living NFTs with unique attributes that evolve over time.
These provably rare digital organisms are genuinely revolutionary in the crypto sphere, as they can be mutated with third-party NFTs to create a new breed of digital collectibles.
Participants in the upcoming one-time drop will access exclusive NFTs that mutate and adopt new characteristics based on players’ input. The team behind the new ecosystem has managed to introduce a true evolution in NFT collecting, empowering collectors, artists, and sponsors to take on distinctive roles in the gameplay that shapes the architecture of the entire ecosystem.
A New Era of Living NFTs
SimBiotes introduces an exciting play-to-earn NFT game based on the mechanics of evolution. The collaborative metaverse allows players and artists to leverage their digital collectibles to create newly-minted NFTs and earn crypto rewards.
While most platforms that currently support NFTs only offer users static images living in a two-dimensional realm, the novel platform includes Simbiotes that live and breathe, acquiring rarer traits over generations.
With time, these evolving organisms will acquire rare attributes influenced by their lineage, eventually morphing into three-dimensional digital personas that players can collect, sell, and exchange on ‘The Field’ ( the in-game decentralized marketplace).
Crypto and gaming enthusiasts will be able to view the most valuable NFTs on the platform’s ‘Endangered Species’ list, which is a real-time Simbiote rarity tracker.
Embryonic Simbiotes: The First NFTs to Ever Evolve
Embryonic Simbiotes are the living NFTs from which the entire SimBiotes ecosystem will spawn. ‘Scientists,’ who are the early collectors of these unique and provably rare collectibles, recorded on the Ethereum blockchain, will have a first-mover advantage in the new play-to-earn NFT game.
These pioneering players will grow their limited edition art collectibles with multiple in-game assets, ultimately increasing their holdings’ rarity and overall value. Scientists can also use their Simbiotes to generate mutated variants of their third-party NFTs (whilst keeping their originals of course).
Investors who buy, hold, and collect 100 or more Simbiotes will obtain the coveted ‘Mad Scientist’ rank, which provides exceptional privileges within the metaverse. This group of collectors will enjoy special features that allow them to speed up the evolution of their NFTs and synthesize new species, amongst other special abilities.
The Lab: SimBiotes’ In-Game Dashboard
The ‘Lab’ is SimBiotes’ main activity hub that enables collectors to kick-start the evolution process of their Embryonic Simbiote. Once players connect their Ethereum wallet to the in-game dashboard, they can move their Embryonic Simbiote to the ‘Petri Dish,’ allowing it to evolve into a Simbiote, creatures with surprising nascent traits and abilities. The Simbiotes then bring forth Eggs, from which new NFT breeds dubbed ‘Cells’ are spawned.
Scientists can catalyze their Simbiote to evolve by introducing third-party NFT collectibles to their Petri Dish. The process integrates groundbreaking AI algorithms that allow the spawning of unique, new mutated versions of the third-party NFTs that collectors can then trade in The Field or store in their wallets.
New Players Can Get in on the Action
The evolution-based bio-digital game offers opportunities for new players who missed the Simbiotes Drop to join in on the engaging, fun, and rewarding ecosystem. The SimBiotes platform provides everyone a ladder into the gamified metaverse, allowing them to enjoy play-to-earn avenues even without owning an original Embryonic Simbiote.
New players can access a set of spontaneously generated Cells, which offer powerful utility in the gamified ecosystem. These lab-generated creatures are released after every generation of Simbiotes and will soon be available in the game’s marketplace.
Scientists can also offer up Cells that have been spawned from their Simbiote’s Eggs for sale, which new entrants into the gaming metaverse can purchase using digital tokens. New players will acquire and curate a collection of these secondary species and use them to participate in exciting minigames called Cell Trials.
Players who successfully deploy their Egg-hatched creations to compete and win in various Cell Trials are rewarded with special power-ups dubbed ‘Biodigital Energy,’ which bring massive utility to the game’s evolution process.
Scientists can harvest Biodigital Energy to speed up the evolution of their Simbiote or increase the possibilities of Egg-spawning, allowing them to grow the value of their NFTs. Users can sell these special ‘enhancers’ in The Field or use them to enhance the evolution of their NFTs into something more valuable.
The Role of Artists and Creators on the SimBiotes Metaverse
Artists and creators can contribute to the SimBiotes ecosystem by creating rare and valuable artwork prizes that are distributed to collectors.
Artists who curate original exclusive collections of NFTs distributed in-game receive special rewards when a collector spawns one of their artwork. The artist or creator also earns royalties with every future transfer of their exclusive artwork.
Perhaps more importantly, art creators commissioning work for the decentralized gaming ecosystem get the opportunity to be a part of the evolving NFTs niche, which is becoming an increasingly more sought-out medium of art.
Owners of Simbiotes can purchase an exclusive host collectible from a top artist and use it in their Lab’s Petri Dish to generate a new, custom version of the original digital collectible.
Similarly, any player can leverage their third-party NFTs obtained from the metaverse’s most talented creators to enhance gameplay and the value and rarity of their native in-game assets.
Crypto enthusiasts on SimBiotes will initially utilize third-party host NFTs such as Crypto Punks, The Doge Pound Puppies, Satoshibles, Zedrun, and Meebits to spawn new digital collectibles (while maintaining the original). The team will add support for more host collectibles to come.
All evolving generative art collectibles mutated with third-party NFTs will be listed on OpeaSea, the world’s largest NTF marketplace.
How Sponsors Can Drive Demand for Tokens
SimBiotes provides one-of-a-kind investment opportunities for third-party crypto ventures seeking to generate buzz around their tokens in an autonomous blockchain-backed network.
The platform’s unique promotion arena provides numerous in-game opportunities that newcomers in the crypto space can use to promote their project’s ERC-20 token. For instance, project dev teams can sponsor weekly enhancer files, which require players to purchase unique tokens in-game to get Biodigital Energy or speed up the evolution process.
These enhancement tokens grant in-game bonuses to Scientists and players in the metaverse, driving on-exchange demand and awareness for any upcoming platform’s native asset.
By designing a flexible framework that integrates a collaborative, open metaverse for all collectors, artists, and sponsors, SimBiotes has created a truly unique and revolutionary project.
Crypto and gaming fans worldwide can play SimBiotes and generate original NFTs that evolve like no other digital collectible on the market. They can also find new ways to engage with their rare NFT collectibles outside of their static wallets in a versatile biodigital ecosystem while earning lucrative crypto rewards.
