How Star Grid, a strong competitor of AxieInfinity, became the Metaverse’s biggest dark horse
I. Star Grid — Hailed as “the next AxieInfinity”
During the Metaverse boom, countless new projects emerged, driving investors crazy. However, once the madness had subsided, investors cut their losses and left the market. Is this really the Metaverse? This is nothing but GameFi in Metaverse guise, wildly reaping dividends.
AxieInfinity may be the leader of the latest Metaverse boom, but it is essentially GameFi in another form. In the process of 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. Star Grid has thus been hailed as the next “AxieInfinity”, but it is essentially taking a different path from GameFi.
II. Advanced innovation with a progressive attitude
If advanced technology can determine how far a project can go, then an advanced concept can determine whether a project is on the right path. From this perspective, AxieInfinity and Star Grid are both extremely forward-looking and prescient.
AxieInfinity is a digital pet game built on Ethereum, and it can be described as a digital world inspired by Pokémon. However, the pupil has now outshone the master, improving and upgrading on the basis of Pokémon. AxieInfinity has created a digital pet community that combines collecting, training, breeding, fighting and gameplay. It has been very 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. Star Grid is the first decentralized application scene on BSC based on the wargame model. Its users can hold Counters, which represent their own identities, and use their own intelligence to produce, survive and thrive within the scene. In this way, they can generate certain economic ties with other users.
In contrast, Star Grid focuses more on the construction of an economic model. It simulates the way wealth is created in the real world, and maps a real social economic model into the virtual world. Star Grid firmly believes that 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 explosion, and the AxieInfinity game itself was designed and promoted in a way that coincided with Metaverse’s ideas at that time. If we consider GameFi as a form of Metaverse, then AxieInfinity is undoubtedly the representative of its first generation.
The connection between Star Grid and the Metaverse is even more obvious. Star Grid maps real life, not only redefining the Metaverse, but also giving it a definite amount of revenue and infrastructure, as well as unlimited scalability. Star Grid gives everyone a fair chance of playing — anyone who dares to try, and can also persevere, will be a winner in the end.
IV. Comparison of key features
Both AxieInfinity and Star Grid have their own characteristics. As an investor, you should be aware of this information and devise your own investment strategies.
Star Grid: Approximately $40
AxieInfinity: Over $400
Summary: Star Grid is less than a tenth of the price of participating in AxieInfinity.
2. Time Cost
Star Grid: No more than 10 minutes per week
AxieInfinity: 3–4 hours per day
Summary: If you don’t have that much free time, Star Grid is a better choice for you.
3. Equipment requirements
Star Grid: Mobile phone or PC
AxieInfinity: Mobile phone or PC
Summary: Star Grid and AxieInfinity have no special equipment requirements, anyone can participate with just a phone or PC.
4. Revenue model
Star Grid: Over time, users’ earnings in the Star Grid increase exponentially.
AxieInfinity: The daily revenue earned by users is relatively stable, with no significant growth trend.
Summary: Star Grid is a growth revenue model. AxieInfinity, on the other hand, tends to offer a stable daily revenue.
5. Project Potential
StarGrid: In addition to the fact that Star Grid itself is in an early stage of development, and its full potential is yet to be explored, Star Grid is one of the scenes in the EMIT Multi-Metaverse. EMIT has infinitely expandable scenes that are economically connected to each other, and from this perspective, Star Grid has an infinite potential yet to be explored.
AxieInfinity: As a fully-fledged form of GameFi, AxieInfinity has had most of its potential already tapped.
Summary: In terms of project potential, Star Grid has the absolute advantage.
6. Cost recovery period
Star Grid: Around 30 days
AxieInfinity: Around 40 days
In summary: Star Grid has a shorter payback period, and offers compound revenue growth.
Finally, both Star Grid and AxieInfinity require only a small investment in the early stages. When you find a project with potential, you should try and stick with it — in this way, it is possible to achieve a significant increase in wealth.
