Introduction of IOSTLAND

IOSTLAND is a brand new continent in the NeoWorld virtual world, based on NeoWorld's virtual world engine technology and IOST blockchain technology. IOST will be used as the main currency in IOSTLAND and residents of IOSTLAND will achieve a high level of automony via the application of IOST technology. IOSTLAND's special economy territory is coming and nothing is impossible for the adventurers!

Land auction using IOST as the currency

From 28th May onwards, IOSTLAND will start its first islands auction, with IOST as the currency for bidding and transaction. Land owners can construct a vartiety of buildings and facilities, host friends and having parties, and start creating a business empire from there!

Building and generating income based on IOST

As the main currency, construction costs, income and transactions will mostly be denominated in IOST. As IOSTLAND has a complete economy system, users can even form guilds, business groups or even companies to collaborate to undertake more ambitious projects!

Community self-governance based on IOST blockchain technology

IOST's blockchain technology empowers the creation of a standard IOST token, similar to ROs of NeoWorld, representing the rights of the territory. Holders of the continental tokens can exercise their voting rights to decide how the territory is ruled and regulated and also benefit from the economic surplus of the territory!

IOSTLAND'S CORE GAMEPLAY

Compared to traditional sandbox games, IOSTLAND focues on users experience and sets no barries for users to learn. Social interactions and managing businesses are the key themes in the IOSTLAND virtual world, giving rise to unlimited possibilities to creative-minded users.

Build and Operate

Land parcels are fundamental to the IOSTLAND. Player can construct buildings on the land to increase the value of their land, and garner attention from the virtual world. Over time, as the land prosper, more constructions like tourist attractions or miracles can be built to further enhance the value of the land.

Collect and Work

Regardless an user's wealth in the IOSTLAND, he will be able to enjoy the virtual world experience as any other player. In the journey, he is able to collect materials necessary for construction of buildings, and offer his labour and time to others in exchange for NASH. Skillsets come into play if an user wishes to excell in a trade.

Collaborate and Promote

In the Silver Age, users could develop continents, e.g. artistic decorations, architectual designs, music and paintings, and sell them for income. Advanced users could organise resources to develop complex businesses, e.g. advertising, exchanges, or anything with commercial value. Let's growth a business empire!

Avatar and Transport

Like in the real world, a IOSTLAND resident has his own avatar to reify his actions and represent his identiy. Similarly,has introduced the concept of distance. Residents could walk from one land parcel to another, or take the public transport, or hop on the private vehicle to start a journey!

Self-governance

IOSTLAND territories are regulated by the lord and its committee, elected by the residents of each territory. Zones compete for population, job opportunities and economic growth. Friendly ties between territories will ensure mutually beneficial businesses, or a trade war is imminent.

User Generated continents

Users of IOSTLAND could design and cIOSTribute continents to the virtual world, e.g. designing a new theatre, decorate it and hire comedians to perform, and sell tickets! User generated continents will be reviewed and approved by the community, and continent cIOSTributors will get rewarded generously.
