Alien Worlds recently announced a new bridge with Minecraft, the best-selling video game with over 141 million players worldwide. That means Minecraft players can now mine Trilium ($TLM) – the native cryptocurrency from the Alien Worlds metaverse!
Alien Worlds opens up its metaverse to Minecraft players
In this popular P2E blockchain game Alien Worlds, players only have one mission. That is to mine as much Trilium as they can across multiple ecosystems on their chosen planet. The best part is, the game is free to play. Due to its rather simple game mechanics, Alien Worlds currently has more than 500k monthly active users on its platform.
Now thanks to the interoperability bridge, Minecraft players can earn $TLM and soon NFTs, for completing quests in the Alien Worlds. It is also worth noting that the code for the interoperability bridge is open-source in nature. That means anyone can run their own Minecraft server to play Alien Worlds. What a neat strategy!
This is significant as it is a step forward for blockchain games to reach wide adoption among traditional gamers. “We think our combination of economics, team strategy, and earning will convert Minecraft players of all ages into Web3 players,” said McKenna, co-founder of Alien Worlds.
Aside from earning $TLM, Minecraft players can also stake their $TLM to participate in the governance of Alien Worlds Planet DAOs. There are 6 planet DAOs and some of them are holding large treasuries in the game. Thus, staking $TLM grants voting power to determine the control of planetary treasuries.
As Alien Worlds is the first blockchain game to connect with traditional games, we foresee other blockchain games following suit. At the end of the day, an expanding user base ensures the longevity of a game, be it traditional or blockchain games.
