Greetings fellow space explorers. Just yesterday, the Colonize Mars team released some updates to the staking and gameplay system in the Colonize Mars blockchain based game. In this post, I'll explain the most recent Colonize Mars updates, and what they mean for you.

Staking Updates

The first major announcement was that the relative staking weights of the cards was finally revealed. For those of you who may be new to Colonize Mars, the long-term vision of the game is to simulate the colonization of Mars by building a virtual space colony where every in-game asset such as Mars Rovers, Rocketships, etc are represented as NFTs. As a reward for colonizing the Red Planet, explorers can earn passive income (Martia Tokens) for staking their cards in the game. Sounds good so far, but up to this point, we didn't know the relative staking weights of the cards. We knew that a Gold card was more rare than a shadow card, but how much more rare? Should an investor maximize their profit by purchasing a lot of low level standard cards or go all in on one Dark Matter card?

Up until now, we simply didn't know. But we now know the staking weights of the cards. As you can see from this screenshot, the team has announced the relative staking weights. For example, it would take 144 standard cards to achieve the same payout as staking one Gold card, and it would take approximately 5 shadow cards to equal the staking rewards of one Stainless Steel card. Using this information an enterprising investor could determine what cards are more cost effective to purchase. 

Gaming Updates

In addition to the staking updates, the team announced that the "colony maintenance" mini game was getting axed from the game and will be replaced with a secondary economy game based on trading resources. This update was just announced yesterday, and the whitepaper still describes the old mini game, so we can only speculate how this new part of the game will play out. The team has constantly said that they want the game to be a realistic representation of what it would be like to colonize Mars, so I'd imagine that there will be some kind of decentralized in-game marketplace for trading various commodities needed for building a space colony. We'll have to wait for official updates to be sure. 


As someone that was a huge fan of space exploration growing up, Colonize Mars is a blockchain based game that appeals to me. I like that the gameplay is modeled after realistic technology and has an educational purpose as well. In contrast to some other projects, I have found that the Colonize Mars team is open and transparent with their updates and seems to do a good job of listening to player input. As always, thanks for reading and nothing is financial advice.
