State of the Economy: 2nd Quarterly Report
September 2022 – Star Atlas unveiled the second edition of its quarterly report, State of the Economy. The report provides members with a comprehensive economic view of the popular P2E game’s ecosystem. It highlights how the massive fall in prices continues to affect Star Atlas as well as other projects.
Majorly, the bear market has impacted the gaming metaverse. Star Atlas’ native tokens, ATLAS and POLIS, also experienced changes. ATLAS, for one, experienced a surge in its total emissions. Furthermore, the Star Atlas ships have surpassed POLIS and ATLAS in terms of prices.
Undoubtedly, events from the first report affected projects and prices. For example, ATMTA, Inc., developer of Star Atlas, announced that it would be adjusting the prices of primary market ships. This was immediately followed by massive ship sales within six days of the announcement. Interestingly, this might mean more ship purchases in the future.
“Despite challenging market conditions, including substantial headwinds in the global macroeconomy, we are pleased to report a modest decoupling within the virtual economy of Star Atlas,” said Co-Founder of Star Atlas and CEO of ATMTA, Inc., Michael Wagner, who added that “SCORE continues to maintain the stability of ship markets, while growth in the labor force broadened across all ship classes, a welcome change from the previous report.”
In addition to the information provided above, the report also unveils data across other categories. Over the last three months, the aggregate ATLAS wages per day grew by 4.4%. Similarly, the overall market value of Star Atlas ships went up by 5.9%.
Things went south for ship prices and the average wage per ship as they fell by -8.5% and -9.5%, respectively. Also, the overall employment rate per ship declined by -0.44%. On the brighter side, the labor force recorded an impressive growth of 14.3%.
Summarily, July witnessed the most recognized growth in overall wages. This was a result of members’ increased acquisition of higher-class ships. It accounted for the increase in the average ATLAS wages, taking it up by 5.8%.
Star Atlas Census Updates
As citizens are very vital to the metaverse’s sustainability, Star Atlas has taken the time to gather adequate data. Over the last three months, 12,591 new members were recorded, while 1,635 became residents. However, a total of 4,802 members left the Star Atlas metaverse.
While the platform’s metaverse houses androids and aliens, citizens also play huge roles in the ecosystem. For example, they influence about 22.2 of the total wealth flows. Also, they are the larger percentage of the POLIS token users, meaning they hold a greater portion of the metaverse’s political authority.
Labor Pool Updates
Considering the previous report, the labor market seems to be moving towards a reasonable high. However, unlike the first quarterly report, there is more accurate detail about what the market looks like. Above all, the labor force has experienced significant growth, and it is worth commending.
Commending the Star Atlas team, Michael Wagner, CEO of ATMTA, Inc., said:
“Kudos to the Econ team as they continue to adapt their reporting – including adjusting the definition of who qualifies as a citizen with the addition of POLIS locking – to stay relevant as the Star Atlas ecosystem evolves.”
A 14.7% growth was recorded for XXS ships, being the highest pool growth in the period under review. Next is the Capital ships labor pool, which grew by 12.8%. Additionally, average net wages per ship went up for Large class and Capital ships, with Capital ships having a net wage growth of 15.3%.
In the period under review, XXS small ships’ tax rate remained at 23.7%, making it the highest effective tax rate. Commander Ships continued to stay behind with a tax rate of 13.8%. Similarly, the lowest tax rate was held by Capital ships at 12.9%.
Notably, the Ship Commission on Remote Expedition (SCORE) is the “primary source of ATLAS emissions” into the metaverse. Between June and August, Citizens and Residents claimed about 505.54 million ATLAS tokens in gross employment earnings. That is a daily addition of 5.495 million ATLAS tokens.
From the sale of resources, a total sum of 89.05 million ATLAS tokens went back into the DAO. Similarly, the report revealed that a total of 293.6 million ATLAS was absorbed following the sale of primary origination ships. While over 75% of ATLAS emissions from SCORE did not go outside the ecosystem, a total of 122.89 million ATLAS was emitted in the period under review.
The platform is expected to generate more revenue, especially with the recent influx of new members. Also, with the release of a demo version of Epic Games, more fans are expected to join the ecosystem. In turn, this means more revenue.
