Free to Mint NFTs
Let’s dig deeper into this notion of a free to mint game. Why is it such a revolutionary concept and what does it mean to ordinary gamers?
Free minting is often called “lazy minting,” which is a process of minting NFTs at the moment of purchase. It is adopted by NFT marketplaces to lower the barrier to entry for NFT creators by making it possible to create NFTs without any up-front costs. The gas fees for minting are rolled into the same transaction that assigns the NFT to the buyer, so the NFT creator never has to pay to mint. Instead, a portion of the purchase price simply goes to cover the additional gas needed to create the initial NFT record.
At first glance, Minionverse does not differ from other free-to-play games much. Yet, one colossal difference lies entirely in the free to mint mechanism. While in mainstream free-to-play games, your in-app purchases are for fun only, in Minionverse they can be treated as an investment. With the huge community of players, there will always be someone willing to pay real money for the powerful items.
This way, accumulating in-game wealth can easily translate into real money. Minionverse offers players the unique opportunity of monetizing most of their achievements. Heroes, towers, minions, and dragons are all tradable NFT cards by default. With the concept of free to mint, the seller will be able to upload the NFTs in the Marketplace at no upfront cost.
Given the current NFT craze, it’s the first time gamers can earn real money without going pro.
