What is Heroes of Mavia?
The game runs on Ethereum (ETH/USD) and is set on the island of Mavia. Players are commanders of a base and their goal is to grow it using resources, obtained from attacking other bases. The game is transforming the NFT landscape with fascinating gameplay, intricate mechanics, and unique monetization features.
In the game, every base can be live streamed during attacks and defenses. Anyone can view battles at any time in the future because they are permanently recorded. You can get started with little or no upfront capital.
Game uses MAVIA and RUBY
Heroes of Mavia uses a dual token model, the two tokens being MAVIA and RUBY. MAVIA is the governance token and enables holders to vote on important decisions, determining the future of the Mavia game. It is also used to trade NFTs on the Mavia Marketplace.
Within the game, RUBY is the play-to-earn token, which players earn by battling enemy armies and bases. It can be used for in-game purchases, decorations, skins, and NFT upgrades.
