Honeyland is a game that allows players to earn the in-game currency HONEY and NFTs in various ways. These can be used in the Honeyland ecosystem or swapped for SOL and other cryptocurrencies on Honeyland's decentralized exchange (DEX).
Play-to-own is an improvement on the play-to-earn model made popular by Axie Infinity, where players will find more value in owning the assets they're earning than taking their earnings outside of the game or ecosystem.
In Honeyland there are three main ways that players can earn HONEY and NFTs.
Players can build their colony of Bees and send them out on missions to earn HONEY and NFTs.
Players select the most optimal Land to Harvest, select the Bees from their hive to embark on the Harvesting mission, and deploy their Bees on the Harvesting mission. Proper strategy and active management will allow players to earn more HONEY in shorter times.
Players select the most optimal Land to Hunt for Honeypots, select the Bees from their hive to embark on the Hunting mission, and deploy their Bees on the Hunting mission. Each Bee will earn one Honeypot per Hunting mission but proper strategy and active management will allow players to earn them in shorter times. Honeypots act similar to a lootbox, where they contain shards that can be traded for NFTs in the Honeyland primary marketplace.
Players choose three Bees from their hive to build their Attack Squad. They will be shown three Defense Squads that have been set by other players with their same Hive Level. The player can choose which one they would like to Attack. These are high-risk/high-reward missions that generally have negative EV (expected value) for the Attacking player, but can also be the fastest way to earn HONEY.
Each of the 8 Honeyland universes is made up of thousands of plots of Land, which yield HONEY and Honeypots. Each plot of Land is represented by an NFT that can be purchased to create low-management earning opportunities for Landowners.
Landowners can set a commission to earn anywhere from 0-10% of the HONEY that is Harvested on their plot of Land.
Landowners can set an entry fee between 0-1 HXD for hunters who enter their plot of Land to find Honeypots.
Players will be able to use their resources (Queen Bee + Bee + HONEY) to breed new Bees, which can be used on Missions to earn more rewards or sold in the Honeyland marketplace for HONEY.
