What is Star Atlas?
The game Star Atlas is an exploration, conquest, and political dominance game set in space. It’s a blockchain game, meaning there is the opportunity to earn cryptocurrency whilst playing. The game holds a marketplace with a marketplace holding trade spaceships, NFT resources, and other items for gameplay.
This open-world fantasy game takes place in 2620, and it has a multiplayer-based universe. You must embark on challenging journeys and mine to find resources and outsmart other players in the game.
In the game, you will pay taxes, trade assets, and play the game with others to trade and form alliances. Once alliances have been formed, you can engage in a battle to dominate planets.
Players can monetize the time and effort they put into the game, earning the $ATLAS game token. This token is the main currency of the game and can be earned by tracking traders, dominating their ships, and selling them on the game marketplace. Once you have $ATLAS, you can trade it in exchange for real currency.
