The ExoPlanets team has announced they'd develop their real-time blockchain game on the ThunderCore blockchain. The decision is fueled by the devs' desire to provide their players with fast transactions, low gas fees, and a smooth gaming experience.

What's the Nature of This Partnership?

The newly forged partnership between ExoPlanets and ThunderCore will in many ways benefit the players. Due to its fast transactions and low gas fees, ThunderCore will provide ExoPlanets players with seamless gaming experience and new opportunities.

A partnership that benefits the players

Also, roughly 4,000 new planets will be minted and split between the Ethereum and ThunderCore blockchains. The two blockchains will allow for planet migration, and later down the road, player migration, meaning that the players will be able to switch between the blockchains in the near future.

Playing on ThunderCore

ExoPlanets on ThunderCore will work similarly to the way it works on Ethereum. Players will be able to own scientifically accurate planets, evolve life on them, and trade them on a decentralized market.

Players will also be able to explore the space, build and launch spaceships and mine scarce resources. These resources will be convertible into ERC-20 ExoTokens and sellable on the market. The main difference between ThunderCore and Ethereum gaming is that the players will be able to perform all of the above actions in a cheaper and faster way.

Celebrating With a Bang

To celebrate this new partnership, the ExoPlanets team has announced a mining contest for all Ethereum players. The contest starts on May 19 and will reward the participants with 10,000 ThunderTokens (TT) and one special ThunderCore exoplanet. TT is ThunderCore's native currency, with which you can perform various actions on the ThunderCore blockchain. For more info about the token's utility, visit ThunderCore's FAQ webpage.

The contest will feature 3 rounds of mining, and each round will last for 4 hours. During the contest players will battle for 140 resource units scattered across 6 resource planets; the player that collects the most resources will be the winner.

The rewards will be distributed as followed:

  • 1st place - 6,000 TT and one ThunderCore exoplanet
  • 2nd place - 3000 TT
  • 3rd place - 1000 TT
