In a radically different approach to handling an NFT sale, PlanetQuest has just launched its community-friendly Planet Sale.
The Cinematic Multiverse and Blockchain Game, backed by Hollywood and Gaming talent, top tier investors, and a community of over 215.000 Explorers, is pioneering a whole new sales approach that promises to eliminate gas wars, frustration, and front running bots, while ensuring their first-ever, real-time 3D Planet NFTs end up in the hands of deserving buyers and community members.
After coming out of stealth on December 15, 2021, PlanetQuest had already built a massive fanbase.
With its interactive storyline that saw community members voting to decide the fate of beloved characters, closing in on the end of its first season, an ancient artifact known as The Cradle has been discovered and activated.
It opens wormholes to unexplored galaxies and sets the stage for the next phase of the PlanetQuest journey: The Community Planet Sale.
In this sale, community members will be able to buy not just deeds to a piece of land, but entire planets, each of which is completely unique, that can be viewed from orbit in full 3D, right in the browser. Making this one of the first, instantly accessible, real-time 3D NFTs ever sold.
A new approach to NFT sales
With demand exceeding supply by a large margin, first come, first serve NFT sales have led to massive gas wars, failed and hung transactions, frustration and crashing websites, as well as front-running bots getting their hands on NFTs intended for community members.
Instead, PlanetQuest has teamed up with Immutable X to organize a Community Sale, giving interested parties plenty of time to decide which planets they’d like to buy and submit their application on the PlanetQuest website.
After the application period closes, all entries will be ranked, and planets will be allotted to the most deserving entries, with Immutable X providing gas-less purchases.
“Since coming out of stealth, PlanetQuest has become an instant hit with the IMX community, leaving quite a few of our own team members addicted to its concept and storyline, and eagerly awaiting touching down on the first planets. We’re thrilled to see that, in part thanks to our technology, PlanetQuest is able to execute on its vision for a bot-less, gas-less, community friendly, Planet Sale.”– Robbie Ferguson, Co-founder of Immutable X
Boosting your chances
For those looking to get their hands on a planet, there are three ways to boost your ranking:
- Joining the community and earn points on your Explorer Passport.
- Holding PlanetQuest Insignia NFTs, which are currently being traded on IMX.
- Writing is a great motivation as part of the application process.
All of these avenues will be open until May 31, allowing both existing community members and new fans to boost their chances of nabbing one or even several planets.
Ready for a preview?
Although every planet sold will be totally different, for example, previews of the differing planet tiers, from Common all the way to Legendary, are now live on the PlanetQuest website, allowing would-be-buyers the opportunity to get a glimpse of what they’re in for.
With surface-level visuals of the first planets expected to go live in Q3 of this year, buyers no doubt have even more stunning visuals to look forward to.
More than a collectible
Naturally, the planets are much more than just a gorgeous 3D collectible. With players of the free-to-play game needing a home planet to play the game, planet owners will quite literally hold the keys to the PlanetQuest universe.
Access to higher-tier planets will be in particularly high demand as they provide players with additional bonuses.
It allows them and the planet’s owners to earn additional Quantum or $PQX, PlanetQuest’s token and in-game currency, which is expected to go public later this year before the game enters Early Access in Q1 of 2023.
Once opened up, Early Access will see players team up with their friends to venture out onto these uncharted planets, facing off against dangerous wildlife or, worse yet, players of opposing factions searching for powerful gear, valuable quantum, and extremely rare, planet-altering artifacts.
New to the universe?
For those who didn’t discover PlanetQuest yet, there may be a lot to catch up on, as the massive community-driven Cinematic Universe has been moving at quite the pace with new story drops, team member interviews, and planet reveals occurring on a weekly basis.
Immutable X prize pool
To celebrate this first-ever NFT Planet Sale, Immutable X has provided a community prize pool of 20.000 IMX tokens.
Each valid application, even those that do not rank high enough to be awarded planets, will be entered into a raffle to win various prizes in the form of IMX tokens, from smaller prizes of 100-1,000 IMX to the grand prize of 10,000 IMX.
For a chance at owning one of the first real-time 3D Planet NFTs, as well as a shot at IMX token prizes, prospective planet owners can submit their Planet Sale application.
PlanetQuest is a cinematic multiverse and free-to-play blockchain game that, for the first time, offers players the opportunity to own entire planets.
Built by a global team with a shared history in games, Hollywood, and procedural technology, the game promises a multiplayer exploration and discovery experience that has players touching down on foreign planets and fending off dangerous wildlife in their search for valuable, planet-altering artifacts.
Future players can already join the community at planetquest, where they can participate in the planet sale, vote on a universe-altering storyline, and earn unique NFT rewards.
