On 4/29 White Sands announced the addition of Resources into its ecosystem.
Resources will be earned by staking specific land/homes inside of White Sands; currently Parcel Pass and White Sands Islands Villas NFTs. The team is actively working on a staking contract that will allow you to prove ownership of your NFTs for in-world utility despite their wallet location.
Each Parcel Pass will have one Resource trait embedded into its metadata. Each White Sands Islands Villa will have three Resource traits embedded into its metadata. Future land/homes may have Resource traits associated - or in some cases, they may be absent. Currently the metadata for Resources will show as "???" until a future reveal.
By staking your NFT, you'll receive a specific amount of that resource on a daily basis. These will be claimable via our website and will result in ERC-1155 NFTs of that resource. These NFTs will be tradeable on the secondary market.
We currently have five resource types planned: Iron Ore, Gems, Timber, Oil and Coal. These are subject to change before our metadata reveal.
White Sands Resources
Resources will be required in-game to purchase items that provide unique utility. As an example, to catch a particular type of pet, say a butterfly, you might need a butterfly net. Or to access a certain area, you might require a mining pick to get through a wall. Vendors will exist in the world which you can trade resources with for these special items - which will also be represented by NFTs and tradeable on the secondary market. Resources will not replace $WRLD as our main in-game currency. But they will supplement it for very specific use cases - providing unique and valuable utility to our land owners.
