Legends of Elumia soon to launch Genesis Hero NFT staking event
Everyone who stakes on the game's upcoming Genesis staking platform will get an Elumia Hero NFT, giving holders access to the alpha test of the Solana-based fantasy MMORPG.
Legends of Elumia, a fantasy MMORPG on the Solana blockchain network, will soon have a Genesis Hero NFT staking event, according to the game’s recent tweet.
This event will allow those who stake on their Genesis staking platform to get the first Elumia Heroes, which the developers describe as being a “rare collectible NFT” that gives players access to closed private alpha testing.
Earlier this year, the developers of the NFT title closed funding rounds which were led by Animoca Brands and Alameda Research. Plenty of other investors and guilds also participated in these rounds, including Crypto.com Capital, YGG SEA, Good Guild Games, GuildFi, Cryptology AG, Kyros Ventures, Infinity Ventures Crypto and more. While the amount that was raised has not been disclosed, the amount must’ve been quite significant given the names that are backing them. The team is also quite experienced in making MMOs, having developers who have previously worked on renowned titles and IPs such as Guild Wars 2, Dungeons & Dragons, Final Fantasy and Star Citizen.
In this Solana-based title, players will be able to have full ownership over items, playable characters, land and buildings in the form of tradable NFTs. Upgrade equipment and characters as you engage in PvE combat solo and with others in dungeons and end-game raids, while dabbling in PvP featuring team battles and a leaderboard for teams to rank in.
At the core of the game are two tokens: $ELU (Elumia Crowns) and $EKS (Elumia Krystals). The first is the governance token used for voting for things related to the development of the title as well as staking, power upgrades and other activities. It’s already out on Huobi Global, Gate.io and the Raydium DEX. $EKS on the other hand is the earnable currency token that can be used for various in-game activities, as a medium of exchange and more. This one is set to launch in Q3 this year, the same quarter in which the NFT marketplace and private beta are slated for release.
