WTF is DEFY DISRUPT?
DEFY Disrupt is a location-based, play-to-earn mobile game built on the Ethereum blockchain via Polygon as a Layer 2.
DEFY is a play to earn NFT mobile game built on the Polygon Layer 2 platform. Immersing players (operatives) in a metaverse that bridges the virtual and physical worlds, DEFY fuses hyper casual code breaking gameplay, learn to earn elements, real world exploration and AR adventures.
DEFY’s in-game economy has been designed with scale and longevity in mind. A dual currency model is combined with an extensive set of customisable tradable game assets as well as multiple active and passive earning mechanisms that can be leveraged by the players.
DEFY will launch with both premium and free to play user pathways, which will greatly enhance user acquisition and retention. An innovative graduation scholarship model aims to revolutionize the pathway to economic freedom for P2E players.
DEFY taps into pop culture to create a rich Player vs Environment (PvE) narrative that has operatives joining a revolutionary hacker organisation with the mission of keeping the metaverse open and out of the control of the evil tech oligarchy, Future Systems. As the game evolves, factions and Player vs Player (PvP) elements will add to the longevity of the game and complexity of the economy.
Their mission is to reinvent the P&E player lifestyle by making their time spent in the game worthwhile by providing opportunities to:
- Earn a decent living and graduate from their scholarship
- Move their body, improve their health and explore their world
- Learn the basics of coding and other valuable skills
All wrapped in an extremely fun and rewarding game.
In the game, players are called “operatives.” They join inside a metaverse that bridges the physical world with the virtual world.
To do this, DEFY uses:
- Augmented reality (AR) technology.
- Algorithmically generated geolocations.
- Collaborative code-breaking gameplay with no geographic boundaries.
The goal? Immerse players inside a game that brings together amazing lore, NFTs, and innovative tokenomics.
Players can join the in-game economy by purchasing NFTs and tokens. But there’s also a free-to-play path users can take. This greatly expands the DEFY audience beyond just Web3 users.
It puts you in the shoes of a member of a revolutionary hacking organization that’s set to overtake an evil tech oligarchy in a dystopian world.
What makes it unique?
Simply put, many things. Firstly, the location-based gameplay mechanics inside DEFY are unique when compared to its competitors. Especially in the traditional mobile-app space.
Other games with location-based gameplay (such as Pokémon Go and Ingress) have demonstrated how fun and engaging this type of gameplay can be.
Tied to real-world locations, the gameplay urges players to go out and explore the real world. The gameplay builds a metaverse on top of it through the power of augmented reality (AR) technology.
DEFY is also unique in that players (or operatives) interact with the game in two ways.
The first is through the at-home experience which takes place inside the mobile/web app, also called the URL experience.
The second modality exists as a metaverse overlay over real-world locations. This motivates players to perform physical activity and explore a vast metaverse. The team calls this the IRL experience.
Finally, DEFY's learn to earn mechanics are the first of its kind. To advance in the game, players must solve puzzles. These puzzles are designed to teach players coding skills, so while players are busy playing the game, they are simultaneously learning real world skills.
What’s the utility of the DEFY tokens?
The utility of the DEFY tokens is based on a dual currency model.
This means DEFY can cooperate with the Apple/Android app stores. Even though they currently prohibit crypto token integration inside apps.
The DEFY In-game currency is called FCOIN. It’s named after Future Systems, the evil tech oligarchy that controls this dystopian universe. The in-game currency is used for actions and rewards within the mobile application.
The DEFY digital token is called $DEFY. It’s an ERC cryptographic token that features governance, value, and rewards inside the DEFY ecosystem.
Both of the tokens serve as integral parts of both the gameplay mechanics and the overall governance of the project.
