INTRODUCTION

Crypto Arcade is a cross-chain, multimetaverse project connecting both 2D & 3D/VR environments to real world events. Land in the Crypto Arcade metaverse can be purchased and attached to custom built spaces on the Gather platform or linked to external worlds and galleries. The arcade serves as a central hub linking worlds from different blockchains, while hosting gaming events, AMAs, music performances,  gallery nights and more to connect their communities. Players can earn tokens and rewards by completing quests and exploring the worlds, while creators can build and customize the spaces and utilize a built-in token-gating system to reward their collectors with exclusives.

GETTING STARTED

You can start exploring the Crypto Arcade as a guest, but if you want to earn rewards while doing so you'll need to first sign up with your Twitter account & email.

Once registered, you'll be able to start earning rewards through the website, social media and at real world events by logging in with a simple button click. To earn rewards in the metaverse however, you'll need to
connect your account to Gather by creating a password. Twitter's OAuth doesn't work through embedding, but a simple 'Reset Password' process allows you to create a secondary login method using your email.

Crypto Arcade Token
Off-chain tokens redeemable for physical prizes, cross-chain NFTs, access to both real world & metaverse events and more, or simply cash them out for $ONE. Arcade tokens are tied directly to staked $ONE in the community treasury. 100 Arcade tokens = 1 $ONE

Gem
Gems can be collected by completing a variety of tasks both in and out of the metaverse. At the end of each month, rewards generated from the community treasury will be distributed to Gem collectors through Crypto Arcade Tokens, and Gem balances will be reset to zero. For example, if 500 $ONE is generated from staking pools and 50 Gems were collected, each Gem will be worth 10 $ONE, or 1000 Crypto Arcade Tokens.

EXP
Like Gems, EXP can be collected by completing a variety of tasks, but hold no monetary value and are instead used to track progress & leveling. As your level grows, you'll gain access to more quests & rewards.

Monster Tokens
Defeating monsters can earn you a variety of tokens, such as Zombie Heads or Bat Wings along with Gems. Each monster will have different reward rates based on rarity and level (Monster Manual coming soon).

LAND

Parcels of land can be purchased from the marketplace as NFTs and linked to custom built spaces, galleries or other metaverses. Once purchased, NFTs are used to verify ownership and unlock token-gated update forms to change admin rights and location info.  Links to each update form can be found on the Map | Directory page listed with the corresponding land parcels. There are no limits to the size of the builds within your parcel. 

CUSTOMIZING PARCELS

2D SPACES
Parcels come with a Gather space attached by default that can be edited, expanded, or replaced altogether through the mapmaker. Built-in assets and premade templates make it easy to get started designing your space, while allowing you to upload your own artwork and logos to fully customize. Check out Gather's official mapmaker guide to see all that's available.

3D/VR SPACES
Most platforms used to create browser based 3D environments can be plugged into the Crypto Arcade metaverse. We use Mozilla Hubs with Spoke to create most of our 3D/VR environments as they are compatible with mobile, headsets and browsers. A Sketchfab plugin allows you to choose from a large library of 3D assets to instantly add to your space with full artist attributions already attached.

MAP BUILDINGS
Some worlds like Nostalgea allow you to customize your buildings for the overworld map as well. You can download one of the available building templates, add your own logos and designs, then reupload it to have it added to your parcel.
