I. Star Grid: Hailed as ’the next Axie Infinity’

During the metaverse boom, countless new projects emerged and drove investors crazy. Once the madness subsided, they cut their losses and left the market. Was this really the metaverse? It was nothing but GameFi in metaverse guise, wildly reaping dividends.

Axie Infinity may be the leader of the latest metaverse boom, but it is essentially GameFi in an alternate form. In exploring the metaverse, Emit came up with the new concept of creating a completely decentralized world. Its latest scene, Star Grid, is more metaverse than anything else. It has been hailed as the next Axie Infinity but takes a different path.

II. Advanced innovation with a progressive attitude

If advanced technology can determine a project’s success, then an advanced concept can determine a project’s path. Axie Infinity and Star Grid are both forward-looking and prescient from this perspective.

Axie Infinity is a digital pet game built on the Ethereum network and can be described as a digital world inspired by Pokémon. However, the pupil has now outshone the master: Axie Infinity has created a digital pet community combining collecting, training, breeding, fighting and gameplay. It has been successful from a gaming perspective, but this does not explain the metaverse.

Star Grid is one of the many scenes in Emit’s multi-metaverse and is currently subverting the original GameFi model. It is the first decentralized application scene on the BNB Smart Chain based on the wargame model. Its users can hold “counters” representing their own identities and use their own intelligence to produce, survive and thrive. In this way, users can foster economic ties with other users.

Star Grid focuses more on the construction of an economic model and simulates the way wealth is created in the real world, mapping a real social, economic model into the virtual world. Star Grid believes it will evolve into the ultimate form of the metaverse.

III. Leading the next generation of the metaverse craze

The year 2021 was the year of the metaverse’s explosion, and the Axie Infinity game was designed and promoted to coincide with the metaverse’s ideas at that time. If GameFi is a form of the metaverse, then Axie Infinity represents its first generation.

The connection between Star Grid and the metaverse is obvious: Star Grid maps real-life, redefining the metaverse and giving it a definite amount of revenue, infrastructure and unlimited scalability. Everyone gets a fair chance to play, and anyone who dares to try can persevere and win.
