Judging by the design, I dont feel the project party has spent enough funds on marketing themselves, rather it smells like a pump and dump scheme project, anyway here’s the start.
There is such a game that opens up the revenue phase for players to participate in, allowing players to share profits with the project side. Players are not only participants in the game but also builders of the project and beneficiaries of the profits. At the same time, the game itself is very interesting. It adopts the form of playing cards that everyone knows how to play, such as Landlords and Texas Hold’em, which are suitable for all ages. In addition, it incorporates the decentralized financial model commonly seen in the blockchain ecosystem, with staking and rebates, allowing players to enjoy the process of active income while also receiving considerable passive income. This reduces the payback period and expands the expected profits, thus forming an excellent economic cycle.
The project we are talking about today is Metapoker, a card game running on the Ethereum Layer 2 network, Arbitrum. The ecological token is called MPT. Metapoker, in summary, has four major play-to-earn modes, but the core is playing poker. In the early stages of the project, Landlords and Texas Hold’em are provided for download on the official homepage. Let’s first change the language to Traditional Chinese and then click on Poker Games. If you open it on a computer, you can scan the QR code with a mobile browser. Of course, you can also enter the URL directly into the browser, but it seems difficult to enter, so it’s better to directly access the official website on a mobile phone. Then, when you enter here, you will see a button to download and install, which is much more convenient.
After opening the game, registration is quite easy; you only need to enter the wallet address and password without filling in those miscellaneous options, which is a great experience. However, there is a bit of attention to be paid to this address. Firstly, the wallet address registered for the game should be the same as the one connected in the upper right corner of the official website because we will need to recharge the chips used for playing cards. For example, my wallet currently has 100 MPT. To exchange for in-game gold coins, you purchase chip boxes in the official Poker Games interface. My 100 MPT can buy this box of 10,000 gold coins. During the purchase, MetaMask will pop up and ask if you authorize it, sign once, verify the information, and finally confirm the transaction. The purchase process is then completed.
Playing poker is a type of active income because it requires us to continuously battle against other players. So how do you make money? The most direct way is to win each round and take the bets of that game. This is the most traditional form. However, according to the white paper, there is a second reward: the project side will take 50% of the total MPT tokens recharged by players each week and distribute them to the top 20% of players on the leaderboard. This is very impressive. Think about it, 20% of the players share 50% of the income, which may even surpass the profits from battles. It will definitely surprise you.
The other 50% of the recharge by the project side is not taken into their own pockets but is all used for token burn. The more tokens are burned, the more the economy deflates, and the coin price will gradually rise. This principle should be understandable to everyone. In addition, the poker game also has an extra grand prize, which is a user number target reward launched by the project side. When the game’s valid users reach 1,000, 5,000, and 10,000, there are ranking rewards of up to thousands of dollars, even tens of thousands of dollars. For example, the first place in these two is one BTC, which is more than 30,000 US dollars.
Below are some official forecasts, such as when the effective users reach 1,000, the daily burn amount reaches 100,000, and there are 700,000 per week, then MPT will reach the price of 1USDT. The top 20% of the weekly rankings, which is 200 people, can share 350,000 MPT, which is 3.5 million USDT, with an average of 1750 USDT per person per week. These are the projections. I won’t read them in the video; you can take a look for yourself.
We talked about active income earlier, which is about playing the game every day and actively engaging in card battles. Now let’s talk about passive income, about earning through staking. Let me first explain the logic of staking. First, staking is done by purchasing blind boxes to obtain cards. Cards are placed in the bankroll to complete the staking. They will periodically produce MPT tokens to reward players. When we open a card from a blind box, this card then has staking power. If we have 5 cards and they can be combined into a special form, they can also have additional bonuses. For example, we see this ordinary five-card type. Since each card has a power of 10, five cards have a basic power of 50. Add the corresponding bonus power of 50 from the table, then the total combined power is 100.
If we’re a little luckier and get a pair, the power bonus increases to 70, and the total power is 50+70=120. The rarer the card combination, the higher the power bonus. For example, the royal flush, which is the least likely to be obtained, has a power bonus of up to 350. Corresponding to the income, compared to the ordinary high card combination, it’s up to four times the income, which is quite considerable.
Some friends may ask, “High-power card combinations are rare, right? They must be hard to get.” Actually, it’s not necessarily the case because you might not be able to combine successfully in one go, and you might be missing a certain card. But the project side will establish a card trading market where players can sell the cards they don’t need. Therefore, through buying and selling, you can also maximize the value of each card you have and complete specific card combinations.
OK, how do we operate this? On the homepage, click to buy Poker NFT, and then you will go to the blind box sales interface. Select the number above, 150U each, buy as many as you want. After buying, click the right menu and select bankroll, and you can see five default card slot
