Looks to me like a crypto/cryengine-scam and not a real scifi game. What we have here are some convincing 3d cgi mock-ups. Anyone expecting an actual game to ever materialise I suspect will be sorely disappointed alas. It has all the hallmarks... let's face it, if someone was actually developing a space game here... they'd have more to show for it than a fancy website.
Certainly a wise head is needed here, will look at their discord to see what's what.

Maybe it's just me, but I don't get all the fuss and fandango about the crypto-coin/NFT hype. The ICOs done by MA and ND were purely hot air. Anyone dumb enough to throw their money at that is lucky if they get anything back. The way the whole thing was "marketed" at the time was a random forum where people who were absolutely clueless about MindArk were simply parroting one another and hyping things up.

It reminds me of WallStreetBets somehow. Or the other way around.

I hope this fad will soon be done. Too many unscupulous people taking advantage of people. I'm starting to lean the same way towards Kickstarter nowadays. I got a couple of amazing things from there, but was also burned on more than one occassion where a project was succesfully funded, and then the creators simply ran. Kickstart at the same time claims innocence but gets to keep their share of the money that was scammed.

TLDR: People suck.

I'm coming from a similar perspective in terms of years, but I found the concept interesting.

I posted a be careful message in OP, as like i said have little solid info at moment and would by no means re-mortgage my house for it :D .
If able i will maybe throw in a few $ and post here and see what happens lol.... for science :D .

Was involved (to say the least) with something like that a loooong time ago. Crypto cats or crypto kittens I think it was. It was something about buying cats, who then could produce offspring with legendary stats if you were lucky. It sounded fun, yet it was designed as a pure money sink. Sort of like a particular MMO you might have heard of.

Know what you mean, there's too many crypto/nft money grabbing things out there, but I just think this type of format could go some and there's a fair number coming to the fore already, so worth investigating.

Like your representation of how Star Atlas works and couldn't agree with it more. Ppl will probably be waiting years for an actual playable game just like for SCitizen.

Mmm might be worth trying it out, providing you go in with your eyes open and speculate what you expect to loose in return for the education/experience. And indeed would be interesting to hear about it later.

That's what I did with that guy in Entropia who did the pyramid scam many years ago. I played it sensible though, doubled my (very small amount of) money and got out. That scam is built on people going "oh wow, lets do it again, here have even more money" so walking early is the way to go to avoid the eventual collapse. Same with the Anshe Chung Dreamland Stock Exchange. I only put in a small amount, enough for me to have a play and learn something. Of course I lost it but I think I gained more in knowledge/experience through trying something new out.

TBH I probably should look at crypto some time (just for the knowledge/experience) and all things related to it... but I have enough hobbies and many other things interest me more. So I don't think I'll be personally going there any time soon.

Certainly... at the moment... I comparing everything to chopping red and blue cubes in half with lightsabers... and the lightsabers are kinda winning most of the time ^_^**

Hmm, setup my own ASIC (application specific integrated circuit) mining rig to mine ethereum in first qtr of 2021. Basically three USB ASIC stick modules @ 330mh/s plugged into a powered USB hub and a USB fan to keep the miners cool. But I soon realised I was just scratching at the walls, having made just 30-odd US$ in nearly two months of continuous usage, and the constant noise of the fan was just driving me nuts.

Reminds me of someone I knew who bought a bigger ASIC miner and also some USB ones. She put them through their paces for a while and I believe made back the cost but in 6 months they were just used to pile stuff on physically.

Sounds familiar, but for me the 30-odd US$ wasn't clear profit once I factored in the electric cost, plus the usb hub used to get fairly warm even with the fan.
