The world’s first Move-to-Earn NFT Game rewarding active lifestyles.
Want to play Genopets? Join the waitlist here.
What if you lived in a world that rewarded you for simply taking care of yourself and staying active? Oftentimes, earning income and having fun are at odds with staying active. You sit all day at a desk then come home and just want to lay on the couch to game. Sound familiar?
In the gaming world, “grinding” has always played a pivotal role in your ability to earn loot and character upgrades to advance in game. A pivotal role that is predicated on hours and days of screen time spent tapping on your phone or mashing a controller sinking into the couch. Don’t get us wrong. We love a good couch sesh, but wouldn’t it be nice to have your cake and eat it too?
In the big picture, it’s not only in games that having fun, getting paid, and staying active are at odds with each other — that’s just life. Working long hours at a desk makes balancing self-care hard. Well, we believe, you shouldn’t have to compromise health for wealth. Health is wealth. That’s why we created Genopets. The first Move-to-Earn NFT game that rewards you for staying active in your daily life.
Genopets is the world’s first Free-to-Play, Move-to-Earn NFT mobile game that makes it fun and rewarding to live an active lifestyle. A Genopet is your digital pet whose evolution and growth is inextricably linked to your own. The steps you take every day power your journey through the Genoverse as you explore, battle, and evolve — earning crypto while you play.
Genopets is the gamification of an active lifestyle. Walking around the mall? Jogging at the gym? Running between meetings in your office? No matter how you stay active, your Genopet is always by your side, counting the steps you’ll use to fuel your gameplay.
Genopets is a move-to-earn game that does more than count your steps and reward you for how much you walk. The game is predicated on you building a bond with your digital companion and taking care of it every day by taking care of yourself.
Paying homage to the nostalgia of taking care of our Tamagotchi, evolving and battling our Pokémon, or even raising our first real-world pet, the emotional connection between one’s self and their pet is a powerful force. That emotional force is the premise of Genopets and ultimately what will help motivate you to live a more active lifestyle.
Summon your Genopet and soar through the neon Genoverse as you explore hidden terrain, unlock magical realms, craft mysterious items, and battle with friends worldwide. Here’s how it works…
Move To Earn Gaming
Passively played, but actively rewarded.
As you go about your life, Genopets uses the pedometer on your smartphone to track your physical activity. After a long day, you can bank your steps to convert your real-life movement into Energy (E), your source of in-game fuel; we call this move-to-play. By removing hours of staring and tapping on a screen from the equation, we replace traditional mobile game grinding with building better habits through gamified self-care.
Genopets is played passively as you accrue steps. At the end of the day, we want you to make the conscious decision to bank your steps and reap the rewards of your efforts. This action you take to recognize your hard work everyday is designed to reward consistency. The key to self care starts with building better habits.
Move-to-Play + Play-to-Earn = Move to Earn Gaming.
Below are the fundamental building blocks of the Genoverse:
What is a Genopet?
A Genopet is a generative NFT that evolves, can be upgraded, and customized as you level up in the game. Players hatch a baby Genopet for free to start the game. Over time, it will increase in value as you invest time and effort to augment its type, battle performance, and aesthetics. A Genopet evolves with XP, and its evolution is guided and accelerated by your gameplay. Genesis Genopets are a collection of the first 3218 Genopets ever created. They are pre-evolved to Stage 4 (Level 22) and have unique abilities and in-game boosts.
What is a Habitat?
A Habitat is an NFT home for a Genopet that unlocks advanced gameplay like a player’s ability to earn KI Token for steps taken every day and to craft other in-game NFTs like Power-Ups, Augments, Nurture, and Battle Items. Habitats can be purchased in marketplaces and are created by other Habitat owners using $GENE, $KI, a Terraform Seed and Genotype Crystals. Genesis Habitats are a collection of the first 5,537 Habitats ever created that have unique abilities and in-game boosts.
What are Refined Crystals?
Crystals are semi-fungible tokens (SFTs) that can be created by Habitat owners using KI, are used on their own for in-game boosts, and can be combined in recipes to create power-ups (other crystals) to accelerate evolution and enhance gameplay. Refined Crystals come in 5 elements: Fire, Water, Earth, Wood, and Metal.
What are Terraform Seeds?
Terraform Seeds are semi-fungible tokens (SFTs) that are used in creating new Habitats. Terraform seeds have 6 classes each with a different cost to create a new Habitat. Terraform Seeds represent the option to breed (mint more Habitats) and can be used in any level Habitat or sold by a Level 3 Habitat owner. Each Level 3 Habitat will generate 6 seeds, one of each class.
What is GENE Token?
GENE Token is a fungible governance and staking token that is used to participate in exclusive NFT sales and, along with KI, can be used to craft valuable in-game items. GENE Token stakers will get to have a voice in deciding on the future of gameplay as they earn rewards actively and passively.
What is KI Token?
KI Token is a fungible in-game utility token earned as a Habitat owner by converting Energy earned from banking steps. KI is used to craft and refine NFTs in-game, create new Habitats, speed up crafting times, and can be converted back to Energy to level up your Genopet. The more Habitats you have, the more KI you can earn per day.
What is XP?
Experience points (XP) are a state in a Genopet’s token metadata that increases by converting Energy earned from banking steps to XP. Once the required amount is attained, the Genopet will level up. XP is critical to tracking Genopet’s rarity on chain.
A Creator-Driven Economy
The Genopets economic flywheel is built on a first-of-its-kind model where both Free-to-Play and Paying players have opportunities to earn. As a crafting an evolution game, the economy is built on a marketplace model facilitating players’ creation and transaction of value (NFTs).
Free-to-Play Marketplace Economy
Genopets affords players a multitude of ways to earn by creating and trading value among one another. Whether players are crafting a rare augment, terraforming a habitat or refining a new set of crystals, actions taken in-game all create value that can be transferred between players. Genopets facilitates a creator economy and marketplace of players creating and transferring value among each other which in turn results in earning opportunities.
Players affinity for their Genopet’s growth and evolution, battle abilities, and storyline to explore create a multitude of ways players can enjoy, strategize, and earn in game. That enjoyment will fuel crafting, buying, and selling in-game items, Genopets, and Habitats, creating a flourishing economy built around a player-driven marketplace.
In Genopets, staying active is just the start of the game. Every day, players will reap the rewards of their movement throughout the day by banking their steps and converting those steps to Energy — the fuel for all gameplay. Genopets is predicated on the bond you build with your digital pet whose evolution and growth is inextricably linked to your own. Genopets is a Move-to-Earn game centered around taking care of and exploring with your Genopet.
Nurture & Evolution
The care for, training, and playing with digital pet companions is a time-honored mechanic within the genre. With Genopets, these mechanics are leveraged to encourage you to stay more active. Over time, your Genopet will level up and evolve as you convert your steps into Energy and XP.
Minigames centered around feeding, playing with, and showing affection towards your Genopet allow you to elevate its mood each day. Happier Genopets will bank Energy at a more efficient rate, serving as a practical motivator alongside more nurturing ones.
Habitat Terraforming & Rental
A key component of the game is the ability to terraform (mint) additional Habitats to sell or lease to other players. Owning a Habitat allows players to earn both by selling Habitats to other players or by renting it to those who want to benefit from a Habitat without having to purchase their own.
Renting a Habitat to another player comes with two roles, which the respective Habitat owner may grant renters at their discretion: the Harvester and Alchemist. Players can be granted one or both roles and owners may set rates and royalties for each. The Harvester role gives that player the ability to convert Energy to KI token and the Alchemist role gives that player the ability to craft NFT crystals.
Harvesting KI & Crafting
Acquiring a Habitat expands your gameplay possibilities. With a Habitat, you can participate in the simplest form of Move-to-Earn: converting Energy into KI token, but that is just the start.
Habitat owners also have the ability to create more in-game NFTs. Refine crystals and craft items to use or combine in recipes to upgrade and customize your Genopet’s appearance and abilities.
Microtransactions fuel free-to-play economies. Habitat owners will have the option to use or sell the items they create, fueling the marketplace economy in-game.
Genopets is designed to augment your life and encourage you to build healthy habits. Use the Energy you earn each day to battle with friends around the world. Battle will feature turn-based mini-games allowing players to engage in multiple asynchronous matches simultaneously, allowing for casual yet addicting gameplay. Challenge other players as you sharpen your reaction time, memory, and overall cognitive skills through Genopet battles.
Genopets’ mission is to make staying active more rewarding through a fun Free-To-Play NFT game. For the first time, anyone can experience the benefits of blockchain technology through an easy-to-understand, casual game that inspires you to get out and live your life to the fullest rather than sit stuck behind a screen.
Our vision for the Genoverse is a vast open world where you will nurture, battle, craft, and explore with your Genopet — all fueled by the steps you take every day. The roadmap will unfold over the coming months, and we will continue to iterate for years to come, alongside the community.
We are all emerging from a global pandemic that has profoundly changed how we work, play, and live. In many ways, the world has been reset. There has been an irrevocable shift in our paradigm. Moreover, we could all use an excuse to get out, be active, and have fun. And there’s nothing better than having a way to earn some income while doing it.
Though at a grave cost, this crisis has granted us a rare cultural moment to apply deep introspection and novel technologies to redefine our approach towards what we do, how we do it, and why. We have the opportunity and the tools to come back stronger and set a foundation for a hopeful future. There is no better time to introduce an inspired way to reconnect with ourselves and each other. See you in the Genoverse!
