While the market continues to be largely driven by NFTs and the metaverse, the gaming is doing well. For several months now, actors like Axis Infinity, Splinterlands or Gods Unchained seem to impose themselves naturally, new players are emerging, ready to upset the codes. While the sector today represents more than 2.69 billion players, the future of play-to-earn and the metaverse seem to have a stronghold in the video game industry.
It is in this context that Mechachain, a video game play-to-earn 3D robot combat called “Mechas” and space conquest intends to strike a big blow. Each Mecha corresponds to a collection of NFTs representing each of the robot’s coins, and which can be purchased using the game’s cryptocurrency: Mechanium or Ethereum. The pieces, when put together, create a robot that you can control in a PVP fighting video game. The player then earns Mechanium as he wins fights and can thus buy new parts to become a better pilot of Mechachain. We explain everything in this article.

The genesis of the movement play-to-earn
Is there a gamer soul hiding inside you, or are you already a regular gamer and you dream of making money while playing? So the play-to-earn is made for you. With the advent of cryptocurrency, NFTs, and the metaverse, the movement play-to-earn (P2E) is gaining momentum and millions of players are right now earning money or rewards just by playing. Far beyond the Freemium models introduced League of Legends Where World of warcraft, the new dimension has taken hold of the gaming.
The video games sector is a growing sector, which today represents more than 2.69 billion players worldwide. according to Global Games Market Report by Newzoo.
More so, this market is expected to reach over $ 189 billion by the end of the year and forecasts exponential growth in the years to come. While natural leaders such as The Sandbox, Axis Infinity or Gods Unchained seem to impose themselves, new players are emerging and coming to build this new economic brick.
Historically, the world of gaming was turned to play-to-play and quickly switched to the freemium model with the arrival of Fortnite. It is Axis Infinity who started the fashion of Ready Player One and allowed to turn a world of “geeks” into new ones finance magnas trading rare NFTs against cryptocurrencies that pay off. We will now see how Mechachain intends to ride the wave by creating a game like no other and above all a unique universe that should last over time.
Mechachain : a mobile game, NFT robots, and a whole universe of discoveries
Intimately anchored in the universe gaming and crypto, Mechachain, a pure French product, comes from the imagination of French YouTubers (Frank Houbre, Thibaut Dumont, Roman Czerny and Maxime Le Morillon) already well known in their respective environments, including Ecom French Touch for example, but also video game creators and a designer having worked at Pixar. They start from the postulate that NFTs bring little use today, but, according to them, the play-to-earn is changing that.
The goal of the game is quite simple: NFTs of robots, here called “Mechas” who compete in an arena.
Their ambition is to create a whole universe, with a scenario and real reflections at the level of the gameplay of the project to ensure that this game is played and has meaning with the NFTs, and above all, can be accessible to as many people as possible. Indeed, in the world of gaming there are several types of game: freemium, play-to-play, play-to-earn but some games do not really have a gameplay. The idea of Mechachain is to make you enter a whole new universe, with a real story while evolving in the NFT and metaverse universe.
To begin with, Mechachain is designed as a smartphone video game and will then be developed on VR Headset where they will integrate crypto and NFT. NFTs are parts of the robot that you can put together called Mechas. You can then pilot them in the metaverse.
It is a modular NFT design system. The visual of your robots and your universes will thus change depending on the accessories worn.
In this game, the utility of the NFT is oriented towards the game, but it is the technique that will make it possible to advance and not the money invested.
If we continue the analysis of the universe, the game Mechachain is anchored in a rather particular universe composed of two types of creatures:
- the pure genes
You have to imagine yourself in a future where the earth split into two factions:
- The first faction did not want to merge with the machine. Here we find people who think that humans and machines should not mix, this is at the heart of the issues of transhumanism.
- The assimilated, who, them, think that the human and the machine must merge to form more than one.
These two types of creatures need Mechanium to move forward: it is in fact the cryptocurrency of the universe. Mechachain. Mechanium, this rare mineral central to galactic conflicts is limited in time and the goal is therefore to find the most Mechanium.
This Mechanium serves several purposes:
- participate in fights and reward players
- trade and repair your NFTs
- receive earnings by renting your Mecha
Finally, a system of staking will be available after the ICO in order to reward hodlers.
With the NFTs in your possession, you will also be able to purchase plots of land on the various planets. The owners of the planets will then receive a percentage of the winnings. Mechachain intends to develop here a kind of virtual real estate which makes sense in the galactic scenario.
A real project with a scenario behind, therefore, design, a universe, a tokenomic with cryptocurrencies and NFTs that makes sense and that works.
Here is the recipe for this new game that you will love.
Decryption of the universe behind it Mechachain
If you browse the White Paper of Mechachain, you will be pleasantly surprised by several elements. First, what sets them apart from other similar games:
- the game is free
- players are paid by playing or owning NFTs or plots
- there is a real mobile game, dynamic and in 3D
- It is possible to customize your Mécha with NFTs making each of your creations unique
- the game will soon be available in virtual reality thanks to VR headsets
But that’s not all, Mechachain it’s also an amazing and neat design done by a professional who worked at Pixar. The goal is to win through graphic creativity, but also through cutting-edge expertise on blockchain, crypto influence and tokenomics. Finally, the game manages to create a fascinating new universe that allows players to truly immerse themselves in it and even create content.
“It is important in our opinion to create a whole identity, whether it is visual or at the level of the scenario. These are the beginnings of the project. We are not here to do the 100th NFT project that will go wild. We want to bring our stone to the world of cryptocurrency and gaming . We want to give players what they have deserved for decades: a world that pays them fairly, according to their involvement “Said the team Mechachain.
In order to be able to give the floor to future players, Mechachain will launch a DAO to allow the community to share and collectively advance the game.
What should be remembered about the economic model and the strengths of the project is in particular the creation of passive income by the staking NFT real estate, but also the creation of a tokenomy in-game based on the MECHA token. Finally, it is NFT’s unique assembly concept coupled with a whole new universe and the enormous development potential with VR.
The best is yet to come: the roadmap of the project and what not to miss
In conclusion, Mechachain wants to mark the crypto universe with a project long term, well thought out and breaking with what is being done today. After completing his private sale in less than 24 hours at the end of November to provide access to the game’s cryptocurrency, MECHA, the project then wants to open up internationally through a dirty public. Then comes the marketing of NFTs then land on the different planets. A screenwriter is already writing the story so that the project evolves over time.
Longer term, Mechachain aims to launch a BETA test within 1.5 / 2 years but by then there will be plenty of mechanisms like 3D to assemble the robots.
