PRODUCT

Tank Metaverse project, the multiplatform gamefi environment with various functions for social interaction, play-to-earn, and fun.

Tank Metaverse is a distant space in a far galaxy that brings together various characters of all shades. Among them are degens, blockchain enthusiasts, and other diverse personalities with different interests, senses of purpose, and backgrounds.

The game environment can be divided into two main entities:

Tankpolis is the capital of the metaverse. It’s a 3D virtual city that lies in the middle of boundless space. The city attracts users from any corner to meet and interact there, in a kind of social game. There are public and private spaces there. Public spaces are used for meetings, events, networking, or any other public events. Private areas are presented as NFTs and can be purchased. Owners of the land can build some facilities there. For instance, people can make the representation of their own projects or art in Tank Metaverse. In the second example, users can buy land and build factories for yield farming and reach bonuses for Tank Arena.

The key traditional attraction of Tankpolis citizens is Tank Arena, where holders of NFT tanks compete for rewards in tokens, loot, and experience points that are later used for upgrading their units. It’s a 3D multiplayer battle game with realistic tank mechanics but a surreal entourage and some futuristic battle functions as well.

NFT tanks are divided into a range of types: light, medium, heavy, destroyers. This makes for interesting gameplay with team strategies and personalization of the experience according to the personal preferences of each player. Each tank, in turn, consists of basic modules: cannon, turret, hull, tracks, engine. These modules have different levels and can vary according to the type of tank and player’s choice. Upgrading your modules you are raising the level of your tank. By earning experience, users can also upgrade their driver’s skills. A driver is a character of Tankpolis who is also sitting behind the wheel on Arena and uses his skills to bring more bonuses for tank qualities.

BUSINESS MODEL

For NFT maintenance Tank Metaverse is developing its own NFT marketplace and minting module. As a result, users could not only sell and buy NFTs on the internal platform with minimal commissions but also remint their NFT after upgrading it to the next level, to rewrite its in-game qualities in metadata and change the picture if it’s required.

One of the goals of the project is to build a play-2-earn environment that is really interesting to play, not only to earn. That is why so much effort is applied to create spectacular gameplay with thoughtful in-game mechanics and perfectly balanced economics.

In total, project architecture can be separated into 4 main modules:

  • Game dev (Tank Arena + Tankpolis)
  • Blockchain part (smart contracts and blockchain management parts on WEB)
  • Backend (server part that connects blockchain with game accounts)
  • NFT maintenance module

Tank Metaverse is built as a multiplatform and cross-chain ecosystem. In terms of game development, the desktop version is used for proof-of-concept stages and first MVPs as the most reliable platform for assembling and testing. In later steps, Tank Arena migrates to the mobile version, to provide an easy way of everyday experience for users in their spare time. Tankpolis will be later adopted for the WEB browser platform as a virtual 3D environment for a pleasant experience of a direct connection between blockchain and the game. However, desktop versions will be also supported for those who prefer higher performance. That is why Tank Metaverse has chose the Unity engine, as it easy able to be transformed on various platforms.

In terms of blockchain, Tank Metaverse uses a cross-chain of Near with ERC-20 standards (BSC, Polygon) for the early stages. However, the main focus is on the potential of Near as a scalable and future-oriented network.

Tank Metaverse is also considered as a cross-reality solution. A long time ago, before doing crypto, the founding team had started the offline business where people from all over the globe could come on a tank range and drive a real tank with their own hands, or even shoot it or crush a car. Nowadays, the team owns real demilitarized tanks that are the key to offline experience for citizens of Metaverse. By staking their NFTs or winning special prizes, users could get a ticket for an offline experience and try our tank in real life. This is how Tank Metaverse builds cross-reality solutions.

At the same time, some of the rare and special NFTs in Tank Metaverse will represent the real offline tanks, and buying them holders will owe a real tank!

At the current stage, the project is actively building the environment and community. The team is open to cooperation and integration with common projects. The project is applying for grants in the meantime, that will be used for building cross-chain solutions for Near and developing the nextgen social play-to-earn game environment.

TEAM

TOKENOMICS

$SHOT utility token:

Token $SHOT will be used exclusively for in-game manipulations. This is an in-game currency meant to be used in Tank Arena to pay game rewards and fees, as well as to purchase and upgrade all types of game units within the arena.

For example, you can buy and upgrade your NFT tanks and pay game fees within the Tank Arena. Battle winning rewards will also be received in $SHOT tokens.

This is a token with unlimited inflation. However, various deflation scenarios and burning mechanisms are provided to maintain the in-game economy. However additional $SHOT tokens can’t be issued arbitrarily or voluntarily. The general company’s voting will be needed to approve and validate this procedure.

Each $SHOT utility token transaction will be taxed by a fee, which will be deposited to our accounts for further burning. There are some deflationary scenarios:

  • legendary Tank Arena battles;
  • product placement and adds on Tank Arena;
  • additional temporary tank functionality;
  • boosts and features at the arena;
  • NFT pumping.

$TNK Token:

This token is the major currency of the entire Tankopolis. Using it, you will be able to buy and rent land, buy and build yield farming factories on it, and exchange $SHOT earned at the Arena of course. The NFT trading process will also be carried out using $TNK.

The token will be launched on the BSC (BEP-20 standard) and Polygon blockchains to employ all the scaling possibilities. The total token supply will be limited to 1,500,000,000. The $TNK price at the initial exchange listing will be $0.012. We expect its price will rise soon by several times, bringing a lot of x to investors.

The token will be a powerful investment tool. We’ll use all the funds raised to expand the team, improve the Tank Metaverse’s gameplay quality, and launch dozens of related partner projects in the metaverse.

$TNK token utility
