Why WAX Blockchain?

WAX (The Worldwide Asset eXchange™) is the most used and transacted blockchain ecosystem in the world for NFTs, dApps, and video games—providing the safest and most convenient way to create, buy, sell, and trade NFTs to anyone, anywhere in the world.

Colonize Mars NFTs launched on the WAX blockchain in early 2021. Colonize Mars’ main in-game token (MARTIA) was launched on WAX in October 2021.

Colonize Mars chose WAX as its first blockchain for a number of reasons:

  • WAX has a diverse, international, passionate community of collectors that already understand the concept of NFTs and digital trading cards.
  • WAX is over 125,000 times more energy-efficient than Ethereum and Bitcoin and is certified carbon neutral.
  • It offers the ability to mint millions of NFTs for a fraction of the cost of other blockchain networks, such as Ethereum. This enables the robust gameplay features, a lower price entry point for new collectors, and a vibrant trading economy.
  • Transactions are fast and free for traders due to the distributed proof of stake consensus mechanism.
  • Accounts are easy to set up with one click using the WAX cloud wallet.

Although WAX is a fantastic blockchain and will continue to be a part of the Colonize Mars game, the project will soon expand MARTIA to other blockchain platforms in order to reach larger audiences and grow the player base.
