Market, Buffs, Season, Stardust & Giveaway
Today you'll have a chance to get the most valuable giveaway we've given away so far. The first of ten Yamato blueprints will be given away today. But let's start with a new and tasty update first. Let's go...
We've just released an update and thus an early beta version of the market on the main client. The market is fully functional and already intensively tested. You can now trade items, planets, and ships on the market.
All goods are traded in Stardust and are subject to 4% fees, which are burned and thus reduce the supply of Stardust. An additional 4% are sent to @nextcolony and used for rewards. The market is an important step for the ecosystem and a powerful sink.
We've been testing the market on @Jarunik's client for a couple of weeks now and are already seeing some nice numbers. Due to today's update and the implementation of the market in the main frontend we expect a significant increase in usage.
- Total transactions (market): 53,533
- Total SD sold (market): 16.4 million
- Total SD burned (market): 1.2 million
The opening of the market was pretty much one of the most important moments so far in the history of NextColony.
Some basic rules of trade:
- Ships that are for sale on the market cannot be actively used, as long as they are on the market. They can, however, be attacked. If a ship is attacked and destroyed, the sell order will be automatically deleted.
- As long as there are active missions, a planet cannot be offered for sale on the market.
- Items and planets on the market cannot be gifted.
- Items on the market cannot be activated/merged/opened.
- Planets on the market cannot start any missions.
- If a ship is put on the market, it will be instantly delivered to the buyers' trade hub (located on the starter planet). This has become possible by a new warping technology, which is only available to the market.
Eight days ago we've released a small update with an early beta version of another new feature. At the moment, there are now two buffs available. Buffs are always temporary and available for Stardust. Buffs can be purchased multiple times so that the periods add up and thus last for a longer period. Buffs effects on the account level. We will probably implement more buffs in the future. Buffs will be an enrichment for the game and a nice Stardust sink.
The first Yamato season is now going in its final week. So far we have seen some astonishing developments already. In total, almost 16 million Stardust has been consumed and burned in Yamato upgrades. Some players have run out of stardust and started to burn their planets for Stardust. The most dramatic burn was the burning of the legendary Tartaros, which added 9 million stardust to the wallet of dachcolony. In total, planets for 17.4 million stardust were burned so far. @dachcolony is currently leading the race with 3.6 million reward points, slightly ahead of powernap (3.2 million) and zings (3.1 million reward points). One of these three will be the winner of the first season. So far, the season has been pretty peaceful, but we would consider it likely that players will become more aggressive towards the end of the season. But let's see what will happen.
The Stardust pre-sale is in the final phase. Only 50,000,000 Stardust is going to be sold in the first round, and 43.69% have already been sold. So there are only 28,155,000 Stardust remaining. Now it's time to stock up on Stardust to increase your influence, build up your liquidity, and grow your empire. If you want to learn more about the Stardust economy please read the extensive analysis by @rondras.
As soon as the second season has started, we will release another update shortly thereafter, so that you can exchange from In-game Stardust to Steem Engine. The backend is already completed. If the pre-sale will not be completed, we will sell the remaining Stardust on Steem Engine. We expect trading to be another exciting aspect for settlers and raiders.
