The underlying game pieces are NFTs which represent the vehicles, equipment, astronauts, and buildings within the simulation.
Players activate their NFTs in the game to participate in colony resource management, map exploration, and skill-based mini games.
These gameplay activities produce two main categories of blockchain tokens: MARTIA and resource tokens. These tokens can be used to win additional NFTs in staking pools, win Ownership, Sponsorship, and Discovery NFTs through colony development, or purchase NFTs via the in-game store.
As players spend more time in the game, their NFT collections grow based on which activities and strategies they focus on. This cycle makes it fun for players to return to the game consistently in order to increase their collection strength and influence on Mars.
