Have you ever thought of buying a spaceship? In the hierarchy of really amazing things it definitely has its place. And now you have a chance to do it quite easily. Little chance though. Only first 100 buyers will become lucky owners!
On May 15, Parsec Foundation and Artplant opened the auction for the first spaceships to be available in its game.
Parsec Frontiers is an exciting feature-rich space MMO experience built from the ground with a blockchain note. Here players will be able to explore and conquer the whole galaxy.
According to the scenario, mankind only managed to salvage enough resources to build a few of the versatile ARK-class colony ships before Earth became a death trap. With one of these in your possession you’ll be among the first to be able to explore nearby star systems and find good opportunities for your first mining operation or offworld colony.
Shape Your Universe
The game is being developed by Norwegian-based studio, Artplant, which has a long history of developing online games and more than 25 million players in total on their previous games.
“With Parsec Frontiers we’re allowing players to shape the direction of the world early on, and thus the opportunity to get an exclusive spaceship to explore nearby solar systems from the very start is a big thing. We’ll only be offering the ARK-class ships to the first 100 players, beginning with an auction starting on May 15th. These ships excel at both exploring the nearby solar systems as well as being good freight and colony ships,” comments Jack Wulff, CEO of Artplant.
The first few ships will also offer the lucky buyer the opportunity to choose a custom name and paint job for a truly exclusive ship in-game. These ships will also be fully tradable and with blockchain technology players will for the first time actually own the ship. We think that is a fairly unique proposition in addition to the extra layer a fully blockchain based virtual economy is adding to the game,” he says.
It’s Time for ICO
On May 15, the Initial Coin Offering (ICO) for the in-game Parsec Credits started, following on from a successful pre-sale earlier this year. In a blockchain based environment such an ICO is a mix between a Kickstarter campaign and a traditional investment opportunity. Sales of the initial ARK-class colony ships will commence on the same day with limited availability.
