While everybody is hyped about Ethermon coming to the 3D metaverse of Decentraland, the developers have upgraded the web-based 2D battle system. The 2D Battle Ladder system will full integrate automated EMON rewards. They will launch this update on June 15th.
Even though the developers are ready to implement the changes, they have to wait until the current ladder competitions have finished. Three existing ladders need to end, players need to receive their EMONT rewards and then they will make the switch. This also means the end of EMONT, which will be converted into EMON tokens.
Ladder 1 will close this Friday, followed on Saturday by Ladder 2. In the morning of June 15th the third ladder will close as well. After that the development team will launch all ladders and new fourth one that same day, on June 15th at 12pm UTC. They will share details about the reward structure one day before the launch on Monday 14th.
Play Ethermon to earn EMON
Ethermon will introduce the EMON token, an ERC-20 token, to push their play-to-earn economy. As a result the token can exist on both the Ethereum and the Polygon blockchain. There’s a total supply of 400 million EMON tokens. Gamers can use these tokens to access premium content, and rare, limited and unique digital assets and benefits. Think about for example buying Ethermons, asset packs, cosmetics, equipment, upgrading metas, enhancing gameplay, unlock special areas and the list continues. The developers will even add more utility to the ecosystem in the future.
However, spending a token is one thing. How do you earn EMON tokens? In the game players can earn MARKS, this is an in-game currency that’s not on the blockchain. They can use these MARKS to craft NFTs, burning these NFTs earns players EMON tokens. Crafted NFTs can also be sold on the marketplace for EMON or through player-owned stores. In addition players can earn EMON through questing, adventures, completing gym battles, and in-game tournaments.
Ethermon moving into Decentraland
Ethermon got completely revamped since the project relaunched as Ethermon Awakening back in 2019. There’s a lot more content, and the game runs on the Polygon blockchain. Now the turn-based battle role playing game is coming the Decentraland, allowing battles and quests in a 3D environment for the first time ever. Ethermon started as a 2D game in 2017, and in the past four years it has developed into a 3D role playing game with its own play-to-earn economy.
Originally the game is a spin-off from the – then popular – game Etheremon, but the new version of the game supports both the old and newer creatures. At the same time a completely new development team took over. The concept of Ethermon will reminds gamers a lot of Pokémon. In the game players need to capture little monsters. These monsters vary in type, generation, form and individual powers. Players own these little monsters and are free to trade them. They can also use these monsters in battle, in which players can earn all kinds of rewards. For example, they can do quests, compete in ranked tournaments, practice or start the adventure mode.
