Cryptopia is a blockchain based defi metaverse game. The game is serverless and all information is stored on and read from the blockchain. The game has elements from the so-called 4x genre like Civilization and Settlers. Big difference is that the fourth X is absent: there is no extinction in our game. There is competition between four factions, but no faction can be wiped out. It is all about explore, expand and exploit.
All items in the game are tradable. There are fungible tokens for resources and products like oil, gold, glass and plastic. There are also non fungible tokens for items that represent ownership or uniqueness: for example ships, blueprints for construction of buildings and title deeds.
These fungible and non fungible tokens are stored in a multi-sig wallet. When you create a game account your multi-sig wallet is mined. Since this is a multi-sig wallet, you can store any ERC-20 compatible token. This is why we call it a metaverse DeFi game: we can bridge to other projects on our platform (currently planning to use Polygon) and other platforms.
The game is free to play (F2P) and play to earn (P2E). F2P is an important aspect: you don’t need an expensive NFT. Cryptopia is not a game where only the first ones can earn while raising the barrier to entry. Every player can earn in our game: rich, poor and in between. How you go about it is up to you: invest your time or your assets. Or both. Players can stake other players.
As the game progresses, more expensive NFTs come into play. This does not mean that players with a small budget are left out. Cryptopia allows players to pool resources to acquire such expensive NFTs. It is up to them how to share revenue and profit.
Cryptopia has 40% of the token supply locked in the game: this means that 4 billion Cryptopia Tokens (CRT) are available as player rewards!
When Cryptopia is a stable, matured game the players will take over. Cryptopia truly will be a decentralized autonomous organization.

Referring to the next question (number 10): we are in multiple categories, namely A, B, C, D, G. If one takes into account our multi-sig wallet, also option F could apply.
