Ethereum metaverse with Play-2-Earn mechanics and your own virtual identity.

Official Trailer

Basic information

GridZone is an art-focused next-gen metaverse from the eponymous publisher. The game runs on the Ethereum blockchain and will be available for PC. It allows the user to create their own 3D identity (NYM), making them a part of the virtual world. GridZone will also be Play-2-Earn.

Road Map

Q1 2022 – Virtual café Alpha/Beta testing.

Q1 2022 – Opening of the virtual cafe.

Q4 2022 – Official metaverse launch.

About the game

GridZone offers many activities. For example, ZoneRacer: a racing game using your own NFT cars, which you can currently buy on OpenSea or mint on the official website after connecting your e-wallet. There is also Astro Café, a combined café and club where you can meet friends and dance to music from well-known DJs. You will need your NYM character for these activities. You will be able to dress them up with fashionable clothes that you get or buy on the marketplace for the ZONE game token. It will be also possible to choose a robot companion in one of four forms: airdrop bot, minting bot, staking bot, and liquidity mining bot.

Player requirements

In the beginning, you will need to invest in a NYM character or a ZONE token. You can purchase a virtual identity right now on OpenSea for a minimum price of ETH 0.55, for which you will need a MetaMask wallet. If you choose the second option, you will need sufficient tokens ready. ZONE can be purchased on exchanges such as MEXC or Uniswap, and then sent to your MetaMask wallet. You will also be able to invest in your cars, robots, or clothes in the game. These items will be tradable on the marketplace in the form of NFTs. The game should be moderately demanding, judging by the graphics. As with other metaverse games, a good internet connection is required.

Tokenomics

GridZone introduced its game token that runs on the Ethereum blockchain. ZONE will be used for all game transactions or to enter the metaverse if you do not have your own NYM character. It will be also possible to use it for payments after GridZone introduces its own game marketplace. The token will have a DAO function as well. You can also stake ZONE on the MEXC exchange or on the official website using a staking bot.

Monetization

In the game, you will be able to earn the ZONE token in various ways, whether by winning mini-competitions or at parties. Metaverse introduced the so-called Party-2-Earn mechanic.

Analyst opinion

“The game made a very good impression on me because the developers have already managed to complete many of the plans presented, such as selling characters and minting cars. At the same time, however, we still find many deficiencies. It will be interesting to continue watching to see whether the creators can continue with the improvements. Unfortunately, there is absolutely no mention of the team. Only the Discord admin can be found – there is only one of them and they use a nickname. It is as if the creator was a single person. The project does not even have an investor – at least there is no information about one, which raises doubts. There are no comments on CoinMarketCap or YouTube, as if the creators have deleted them. Lastly, the community is small. The project is just beginning, and it looks very unprofessional. For these reasons, I would not recommend joining it for the time being. At most, I would join the Whitelist competition.”
