This Play-To-Earn Game Offers NFTs Linked To Gold

The days of wasting hundreds of hours on a game and receiving almost nothing in return are over, all thanks to non-fungible tokens (NFTs) and Blockchain technology.

Underpinned by the explosion of NFTs, which continue to gain widespread acceptance, Blockchain gaming is growing stronger. Building on this momentum, the FRUITS Eco-Blockchain Project is enabling non-NFTs to be exchanged for a desired tangible good: a real golden egg.

The narrative of Golden Egg Wonderland begins with a painter named Turtlen who produced colourful paintings of birds and had a dreamed about one that could lay a golden egg. All of a sudden, one of his sketches was alive.

The FRUITS Wallet is a game where users can raise their own “Turtori” and create a collection that can crossbreed. The higher the rarity and status of “Turtori”, the higher the chance of laying golden egg NFTs. These NFTs can be redeemed for real-world equivalents. Each character is illustrated by Kamerian, an up-and-coming artist. To play, players need to set up a FRUITS Wallet and purchase FRTS Coins, which can be exchanged for blue diamonds to increase the chances of getting higher rarity birds. This comes as gold interest grows due to global inflation, affecting everyday consumer earnings.
