Tiny Colony — A New Pixelated Metaverse Running on Solana
The decentralized nature of peer-to-peer networks, rather than relying on a single server, makes it possible for users to connect with online services.
In this context, new projects are launching metaverse systems that fully leverage the decentralized nature of blockchain technology. Today we will impartially review the Tiny Colony initiative, one of the latest projects to join this growing market.
About Tiny Colony
Tiny Colony is a pixelated ecosystem running on the Solana blockchain and featuring a wide range of gameplay modes, activities, and events.
Building and growing advanced Ant colonies, defending their bases against evil creatures that wander the deep, and participating in large-scale community events are just some activities available to players in the Tiny Colony Metaverse.
Base Builder and Battle Arena are just a few examples of the many activities that players will be able to participate in as part of their newfound sense of community.
The Project’s Partnerships
Fractal, the first NFT Marketplace devoted to Blockchain Gaming, announced cooperation with Tiny Colony earlier this year. Tiny Colony described its excitement to collaborate with Fractal, whose technology and mission to develop and enrich the Blockchain Gaming sector aligns with the team’s vision.
An open market for gaming-related NFTs, Fractal was launched on Solana in Q4 2021. Key collaborations with gaming companies and projects allow NFTs to be quickly dropped into the platform.
The team explained that the first NFT sale set up through this partnership raised $2 million in February. This amount represents, as of today, a record in Fractal’s business.
Other significant partnerships, such as the one with Solana NFT space and Justin Kan, co-founder of Twitch and Justin.tv, are also utilized by the team.
Moreover, Tiny Colony has teamed up with iLogos, a gaming company working with the likes of Ubisoft and EA, as well as Dreamworks and Rovio.
Tiny Colony’s Next Event on Fractal
Tiny Colony’s team has recently announced the imminent launch of a new NFT event on Fractal. Investors will be able to put their hands on character NFTs on April 28th following a whitelisting procedure.
The team expects to mint different NFT categories, ranging from “creatures” to “sorcerers.” Under each group, the developers included several levels of rarity. For example, we find lords, dukes, and archbishops in the “noble” category.
The event will feature 10,000 unique NFT characters at a whitelist price set to 1 $SOL (1.5$ SOL is, instead, the public price).
It won’t be possible to select NFTs since the system will randomly assign them to the users. However, with multiple Whitelist Access Tokens, users can mint multiple Character NFTs.
Character NFTs are critical to protecting the Colony in the Base Builder game mode. Ant Raiders can be defeated if these NFTs are carefully positioned in the Colony’s defenses. In the Gladiator Arena game mode users can go head-to-head against other users and win loot and rare NFTs.
Character NFT holders will additionally have access to the whitelisting process of other NFT mints, and they will receive free airdrops from the system. The team set up a private Discord channel for NFT holders, and they will allow them to join Tiny Alliance’s social network group.
The Project’s Tokenomics
The Tiny Colony Marketplace, The Bazaar, offers a broad selection of NFTs for $TINY. In the Tiny Colony universe, some NFTs include characters, weapons, armor, vehicles, customizations, and more.
The allocation of $TINY tokens is as follows:
- Players: 30%
- Ecosystem & Rewards: 29.9%
- Team: 15%
- Private: 9.5%
- Advisory: 5.5%
- Liquidity: 5%
- Marketing/Legal: 5%
- Public: 1.1%
The token’s total supply will be equal to 100 million samples, but the initial circulating supply will only amount to roughly 4.6% of this number. Specifically, the tokens will initially be divided among the IDO, DEX liquidity, private sale rounds, marketing & legal operations, and ecosystem & rewards system.
Tiny Colony’s Roadmap
The team will grant early game access this year by the end of Q2. Apart from that, we have some details about the project’s plans, which we summarized below:
- Q3 2022: the “Gladiator Arena” game will be available, providing its Player vs. Player (or PvP) mode. Furthermore, the team expects to have a series of NFT drops.
- Q4 2022: besides organizing other NFT drops, the developers will release the “Battle Arena” and “Tiny Wars,” integrating more PvP and PvE options in Tiny Colony’s ecosystem.
- Q1 2023: we already have some details about next year, which should see the release of “Tiny Slots” and “Tiny Theatre,” together with more NFT drops.
The project’s roadmap indicates that Tiny Colony is an ambitious project wishing to launch on Solana. The team has already disclosed information about this year and 2023, promising a long-term commitment to the project.
The market will keep an eye on the next NFT event organized by Tiny Colony on Fractal. The team will update its community through the project’s official website and social media pages (Discord, Twitter, Instagram, and Medium).
