Hey everyone and welcome to another killer Discovery of the Day! MarketSquare recently moved into its Open Beta, meaning you can now sign up for a profile and explore all the site has to offer. From Monday to Friday we bring you some of the best projects from across the cryptosphere. Whether it’s NFTs, the metaverse or Blockchain games, you’ll find it all right here on MarketSquare! Today we take a closer look at some interstellar travelers who have found a new home on Earth…This is Ethalien!
In the last few decades there have been numerous discoveries that suggest life exists beyond the familiar atmosphere of our beloved planet Earth. There have been several ‘sightings’ where UFOs have been spotted hovering or careening across our skies, and who can forget all the controversy surrounding the Roswell Incident of 1947? Regardless of your thoughts and theories on these strange occurrences, there are other, shall we say, more ‘scientific’ pieces of evidence that would incontrovertibly prove the existence of extraterrestrial life in some form or another:
- Alien bacteria might live in the clouds of Venus
- Oumuamua could still be an alien artifact
- This blurry photo of an ‘alien’ (OK, maybe not this one)
Although these are all very intriguing, we have yet to see indisputable proof that aliens actually exist. Time and time again, conspiracy theories, UFO sightings and alleged scientific research have been debunked. Despite this, maybe, just maybe, 2022 will be the year aliens finally make contact…
Oumuamua, a mysterious, interstellar object that drifted into our solar system about two years ago
However, we have seen proof of aliens living in the metaverse—The Alien Boys, Lonely Alien Space Club, and Alien Frens are just a handful of the otherworldly visitors currently dwelling within our solar system. These aren’t the only extraterrestrials around though—as it turns out, there’s a new species in town, and they’re infiltrating and living on our very own blue orb, Earth! Today, we bring you Ethalien! 👽
Lonely Alien Space Club, Alien Frens & The Alien Boys
When Worlds Collide
Ethalien is a collection of 7,500 NFTs that fled their home planet, Zerkton, and now inhabit Earth. The focus of the project is to facilitate a strong community and become a major player within the realms of Play-to-Earn (P2E) gaming. However, these funky Ethaliens are just the tip of the iceberg in the wider Ethalien Metaverse.
Throughout December and January, if you held two Ethaliens and 300 $STAR, you were eligible to breed them in order to create a Baby Ethalien! These cute little guys come with plenty of utility and give you access to exciting features such as:
- The Web3 Starcade and Play-to-Earn Adventure Quests
- The ability to earn Star Dust, $STAR & limited-edition Ethalien NFTs
- Access to the exclusive Alpha Lounge
- The opportunity to enter $STAR raffles
- Exclusive Baby Ethalien Merchandise, and
- Future Whitelist Opportunities
Wow! Now that really is a ton of utility! Now let’s take a look at some of these sweet Baby Ethaliens 👀
$STAR Token, STAR Shop & STARcade
$STAR is an ERC-20 utility token that fuels the Ethalien Ecosystem. It’s capped at a total of 69,420,000 (ba dum tss!) Each Ethalien generates 5 $STAR per day for a total of 5 years. That’s what I call long-term utility! The token can be used throughout every collection (Ethalien, Baby Ethalien & Ethalien VOX) as well as the STAR Shop, STAR Auction and Starcade.
- The $STAR shop is a place where you can purchase the $STAR badge, Twitter and Discord Banners, NFTs and much more
- The Starcade is simple—spend $STAR to play $STARCADE games for the chance to win more $STAR
Last but not least, let’s talk about the latest addition to the Ethalien Metaverse…Ethalien VOX! These Ethaliens can be used in any metaverse that supports .vox files (we’re talking The Sandbox , Cryptovoxels , and so on). In addition, mystery asset boxes will be available with the $STAR token in the STAR shop for your Ethalien VOX. Now let’s take a gander at these lil guys!
The Ethalien VOX whitelist presale will take place on January 28th with the public sale following one day thereafter—the reveal will take place upon sell out, so get your wallets ready people!
