About Star Atlas metaverse game
Star Atlas is a platform built on the Solana blockchain. It is a virtual AAA type game. That is, it is a high-budget, high-profile game, which can be classified as a “blockbuster”.
The game consists of a multiplayer metaverse that is set in a fictional distant future.
In this world, three different factions fight for resources through space exploration and territorial conquest. So, as players conquer territories they earn rewards.
About POLIS and ATLAS tokens
Inside the game there are two digital assets, they are: ATLAS and POLIS. The POLIS token plays a governance role in the ecosystem. In other words, crypto gives players control over both in-game activities and changes in game parameters.
Meanwhile, the ATLAS token works as a unit of exchange for buying and selling in-game assets.
According to the developers, the game’s platform economy is designed with the aim of mirroring real-world economies built around real-world asset ownership.
