Earth 2 Founder Candid Thoughts - Essence, Tier 1 & 2 Land + More

Releasing a video moments ago, Shane says " As promised, I am sharing some inside thoughts about various Earth 2 related features or products. In this video I talk a little about Essence distribution, Tier 1 and Tier 2 land, Player Creativity and more."

We have compiled some key take-aways below as well:-

Key Take-aways

  • Essence will have inflationary and deflationary periods.

  • The most beneficial time for the players could be the inflationary period which could be the first 2-4 years

  • Assurance that Tier 2 land will also produce Essence albeit at a slower rate. If and when Earth 2 decides to release T3 land, the essence accumulation ability of such land will further be slower than T2 land.

  • There will be set maximums in terms of Essence yield separately on T1 and T2 land

  • The amount of Essence yield on any given land will also depend on other factors such as Jewels slotted and other variables (he didn't mention what are these 'other variables')

  • For players short on time to manage properties, they will be able to contract/collaborate with other 'eco-sim players' in order to get the maximum benefit on their property. Both the property owner and the eco-sim players will share the Essence yielded in such cases and dictated by their contract. The ability to contract between players could come over next few months

  • Small property owners will get fractions of Essence, so it doesn't show up as zero

  • Excited about the vision of web3, and the ideology of blockchain but do not agree with how most projects in the space are using it. When Earth 2 enters web3, want to be sure that we are making the right decisions and in the interest of longevity of the platform.

  • We spent a lot of time catching up after we went viral, and we want to add utility. Looking forward to the launch of the 3D environment of Earth 2.

  • Still debating internally between custodial and non-custodial wallets. If we went with custodial wallets there will be at least a couple hundred thousand Essence holders, compared to Sandbox or Decentraland which only have between 20k-30k holders. Very curious to see what the Earth 2 community thinks about this choice.

  • Resources are coming soon. Users will be able to see what resources their properties have. This will be followed by the Resource validation period. The resource heatmap is maybe a bit closer and that will be the first glimpse of where resources are on player owned land. We not gonna be showing resources on non-owned land.
