Neo Global Development has announced TOTHEMOON as the first project accepted into the N3 Early Adoption Program. The Early Adoption Program is intended to incentivize the development of new dApps on the Neo N3 blockchain. As part of the program, NGD will offer resources and incubation opportunities to accelerate the growth of the NFT-based game.
TOTHEMOON is a strategic community-building NFT game built on Neo N3 where collectors engage with the moon-themed metaverse. This metaverse requires communities to organize into teams on various moon plots. Moon plot owners and moon teams have their own governance systems with rules set by these plot owners. There will be a location called “The Village” within the metaverse, where users can participate in play-to-earn type games.
The team intends to introduce various characters and items through a series of releases and airdrops called “Moon Phases.” The first moon phase will include Cryptonauts, First Generation Moon Creatures, Moon Trainers, and Moon Babies. More information about the characters and their roles in the game can be found here.
TOTHEMOON was first introduced to the Neo ecosystem during the Neo Frontier Launchpad event, where the team received an Excellence award as one of the top projects. TOTHEMOON co-founder and creative director Brandon Sousa delivered a demo during the post-Launchpad demo week and offered an overview of the metaverse, Neo integration, and roadmap.
Looking forward, the TOTHEMOON team intends to mint and launch their NFTs, then reward early adopters with in-game item NFTs and TTM token airdrops. More information will be released as it becomes available.
Early Adoption Program Details
NGD’s Early Adoption Program has allocated US $10 million in grants for qualified teams and individuals. The goal of the program is to increase overall participation in the Neo ecosystem. NGD hopes that new ecosystem entrants building on Neo N3 can optimize the network through real-world use and testing. Ultimately, NGD believes the program can help establish Neo N3’s infrastructure while simultaneously bolstering awareness.
NGD hopes to see a variety of dApp and product ideas, with particular interest in the following types of projects:
- Infrastructure for the Neo N3 MainNet (i.e., browsers, compilers, middleware)
- Product development based on NeoID, NeoFS, oracles, and other core components of Neo N3
- Application layer uses (i.e., DeFi, NFTs, and general dApps)
- Concepts with business use cases merging physical and digital worlds (i.e., social media, e-commerce projects)
- Regulation-facing use cases (i.e., payment and traditional financial digitization projects)
More information about applying can be found on the Eco Support section of the neo.org website.
