• Alien Worlds is an NFT DeFi metaverse that simulates economic competition and collaboration between players. This is achieved by incentivizing players to compete for Trilium (TLM), which is required to control competing Decentralized Autonomous Organizations (“Planet DAOs”) and to gain access to additional gameplay.

  • In the Alien Worlds metaverse, players can acquire NFTs (digital game items) to mine TLM, engage in battles, and complete in-game quests. Depending on their strategy, players may purchase and assemble NFTs that best suit their gameplay. Additionally, players may engage in governance by electing the Councillors of six Planet DAOs, and thereby influence the direction of the game.

  • Trilium (TLM) is the native utility token of the Alien Worlds metaverse and has the following use cases:

    • Planet Governance: TLM holders may stake TLM to participate in the governance of planets and other potential rewards.

    • Staking: Players may stake TLM on a selected planet to participate in TLM and NFT mining.

    • In-Game Currency: TLM tokens are the currency in Alien Worlds, where players require TLM to purchase and upgrade items, participate in quests and battles, and other in-game related activities.

    • Gameplay Incentives: Active users may earn TLM as participation rewards to develop the in-game ecosystem and activity.

    • Purchase NFTs: Players may purchase in-game items which are minted as NFTs, to mine TLM, engage in battles, and complete in-game quests.

  • The project has raised 2.5MM USD from two rounds of private token sales:

    • Seed sale round: 7.06% of the maximum token supply was sold at 0.0021 USD / TLM.

    • Presale round: 3.43% of the maximum token supply was sold at 0.0030 USD / TLM.

  • On April 13th 2021 (when listed on Binance), the total supply of TLM will be 5,135,726,585 and the current circulating supply will be 1,240,473,079 TLM.

1. What is Alien Worlds (TLM)?

Alien Worlds is a simulated economy where players compete for the scarce resource, Trilium (TLM), which they use to enhance their power in the game by staking and voting in Planet Decentralized Autonomous Organizations (Planet DAOs). Both planets and players compete for TLM, leading to intense competition and collaboration between groups.

Current functionality within the Alien Worlds metaverse include:

  • Mining: Using suitable NFTs, players can mine TLM from different planets.

  • Staking: Players stake TLM to earn staking rewards in TLM and NFTs and stake Trilium to Planets to increase the Planet’s reward pool.

  • Planet DAO governance: Participate in weekly elections for council candidates.

  • Trade NFTs: Players may trade NFTs on Binance Smart Chain (BSC) and WAX, to be used for mining and in-game missions.

  • Cross-chain bridge: Porting TLM between BSC, WAX, and Ethereum.

4 Existing functionalities

4.1 Mining and Staking

Mining and Staking

Source: Alien Worlds

Players may use their Tool NFTs to mine TLM, and rent or own their Land. Successful mining attempts may reward plays with TLM, and sometimes additional NFTs. Depending on the Land or Tool NFT, players may be able to mine more TLM and NFTs, while others have shorter intervals between each mining cycle. Users may use the combination of Tools and Land that best suits their strategy and gameplay.

4.2 Planet DAO voting

Mining and Staking

Players may stake TLM to Planet DAOs, which indicates their support for a planet to receive more daily TLM emissions. Through staking, players also gain voting rights on the Planet DAO based on the proportion of TLM staked. Players may run to be a candidate for Councillor of one or more Planets. Following the elections at Planet DAO, the DAOs will be opened to governance by the elected Councillors, who will then share multi-sig control over the Planet DAO accounts.

5. Technical Infrastructure

Alien Worlds runs on Binance Smart Chain (BSC), Ethereum, and WAX, and has deployed the Trilium token contract on all 3 blockchains. BSC supports the ‘mission’ staking functionality, allowing missions to be offered to BEP-20 TLM token holders, whereas WAX supports a fee-less transactional layer for the majority of the core gaming logic (such as Federation and Planets).

Alien Worlds NFTs are supported on BSC and WAX, with the NFT image data stored on the peer-to-peer InterPlanetary File System (IPFS). This ensures that the image data remains decentralized, while allowing external applications to connect with on-chain functions and data to facilitate the activities below:

  • User generated contests based on Alien Worlds mining.

  • User defined NFT drops for specific groups of Land NFT holders.

  • External game servers, such as Minecraft servers, connecting to Alien Worlds gameplay and rewards.
