After distributing 900K WAX and thousands of RDAO tokens, the first phase of R-Planet’s Metafarming feature is coming to an end. And while the RDAO tokens have no use at the moment, the R-Planet team promises that this will soon change.
The first phase of R-Planet’s metafarming project saw players place tokens in liquidity pools and purchase CADD tokens through an auction system. But that phase is now over, and R-Planet’s current metafarming has come to an end. But don’t sell your RDAO tokens yet! The team promises that both CADD and Aether (AETH) will be used in the future.
Future Earnings for CADR Holders
The first step for CADD token holders will be a distribution of BOX tokens from the DeFiBox site. Apparently, R-Planet has earned a number of these tokens from the liquidity pools, and will be collecting and distributing them to RDAO holders as part of the alpha launch of the upcoming R-Planet: Conquest game.
This will be a new and separate staking pool. This means that CAPP stakers will need to opt out of the old WAX Rewards pool and re-enter the new BOX pool once it is operational. The staking pool to acquire BOX tokens is expected to open in September, a few days after the launch of the Conquest alpha.
And speaking of Conquest, we have an official date for the alpha! September 22 is the current date for the closed alpha of R-Planet: Conquest. One thousand alpha passes have been distributed and participants have a chance to win a special Hero NFT. In addition, once Conquest launches, the R-Planet team plans to hold additional sales of resources and items. Purchases will be made in AETH tokens, and 75% of the proceeds from these sales will be donated to the RDAO Rewards Fund.
For those who haven’t heard of it, Conquest is a city-building, multiplayer, PvP game. The style is similar to League of Legends or Clash of Clans, but with robots!
What about the ether?
In the near future, production of new Aether tokens will end. At that time, players who own the various Element and Rig NFTs for R-Planet will have the opportunity to cash them in for three times their mining power. And since the NFTs will be useless at that point, you’d better burn them, unless you’re feeling nostalgic.
At that point, AETH will enter a circular cycle, with tokens being used to purchase packs and upgrades in Conquest, and the proceeds of those purchases going back to the holders of RDAOs. The total supply of AETH is approximately 1.270 billion (or 1.27 trillion), with over 985 billion tokens already mined. (Note: Because AETH tokens are sometimes burned as part of the harvesting of milestone rewards, the final and total supply of AETH tokens will be smaller.)
This will also likely have an effect on some of the collections that generate AETH via R-Planet staking. I expect that many of these NFTs will reach the markets once R-Planet NFT staking is complete.
But, in the meantime, AETH production is still underway. Stake R-Planet and NFTs from some other collections to earn AETHs while you can. And the invention game is still going on. The R-Planet team regularly gives hints on Twitter and Discord. There are still a number of undiscovered items, each of which offers a unique and special inventor NFT to the first person to discover the recipe.
