Sunflower Land is a Play-to-Own blockchain game based on Polygon. The game has received much enthusiasm from the community lately. In fact, among the Polygon games out there, Sunflower Land ranks 2nd right after Crazy Defense Heroes. This means the game has beat Aavegotchi and Pegaxy in terms of the player base. Crazy right? But what’s so special about this game? Let’s find out more.
The Sunflower Land game: What you need to know
Formerly known as the Sunflower Farmers, the game rebranded itself to Sunflower Land a week ago. In essence, it is a metaverse game where players can farm, chop, mine, craft, and build their farming empire. Upon harvest, players can sell their crops to earn $SFL, the native cryptocurrency in the game.
The good news is that the game recently launched its open Beta version on 7 April. To access the Beta, just join their Discord, get a “Farmer” role, and prepare at least 1 MATIC to play. Here, 90% of the fees in MATIC are used to support the running costs of Sunflower Land. Whereas 10% of them will go to a charity of your choice. Do take note that there are only 100,000 Beta spots available daily. But once done, you’ll be able to mint a farm NFT to start farming!
Supply and demand matter in a player-driven economy
Tokenomics plays a crucial part to sustain the in-game economy. And the team behind Sunflower Land knows this very well. Accordingly, players’ ROI is affected by supply and demand. As more players farm, the overall $SFL supply reduces. Thus, reducing the rewards over time.
But reducing the rewards is pointless if the token has little utility in the game. For that matter, players have nothing to worry about. The game supports more than 50 rare collectibles and NFTs that can be crafted using $SFL and other in-game resources.
As the token supply drops, all NFTs, tools, and other craft-able items will retain the same price. This will ensure that these items become harder to come by over time and will ensure that the demand for the token stays high.
In case you’re wondering, the public sale for $SFL token will go live on 15 April. As the team wishes to create a player-driven economy, there won’t be any pre-sale of $SFL tokens. Instead, the only way you can mine $SFL is by playing the Beta game.
What’s next for Sunflower Land?
Nonetheless, Sunflower Land is just getting started. Looking at the roadmap, we are now at Stage 1 starting with open Beta farming. The team will introduce more game features such as crafting, new farming activities, and new NFTs during this period.
At the end of this stage, the team will kick-start Stage 2 which focuses on land expansion. By then, players will need to spend $SFL to craft additional land NFTs. By the end of Stage 3, Sunflower Land will become a decentralized project through DAO.
With all the fierce competition in GameFi, it is truly amazing to see Sunflower Land breaking out as a strong contender in such a short while. If the team can stick to its roadmap while paying attention to its gameplay and tokenomics, Sunflower Land will surely make big waves in 2022.
