Play to earn and trading

The core philosophy of our game is that the players own their hard-earned progress and rewards. The players will have the ability to earn cryptocurrency by winning matches and mint the cards they’ve collected as NFTs to sell, or trade with other players. Rarer the card, higher the NFT value after minting, with a chance to get special gilded cards, which have their value increased even more.

easy to learn but competitive

A lot of the trading card games on the market are very complex and hard to grasp for beginners. By implementing a user-friendly interface and easy-to-grasp tutorials, while making sure to have a lot of room for the development of competitive strategies, we aim to create a game that will be welcoming to players who are completely new to the genre and seasoned veterans of TCG as well.

The Genesis Collection

Our release schedule will have 2 phases. We will start selling the NFTs of Genesis Collection Part 1 and Genesis Collection Part 2 before the launch of the game.

Part 1 will include 11,111 NFTs, around 2,222 skin variants for 5 heroes and after a period of time, Part 2 will go on sale with skins for the remaining 5 heroes.

The Genesis collection will launch on Ethereum Blockchain network, and later when the game launches they must be transferred to the Polygon network to use them in game.

Players who hold genesis collection will receive:

  1. A unique skin of the hero that players will be able to use in the game. The only way to get the Hero skins is via the Genesis collection. Players joining the game later will use the default hero skins and will be able to get skins only via the secondary market.
  2. Free 5 hero card packs of the hero that the player holds. In case you have multiple heroes you will get 5 hero card packs for each of them. By earning the cards players will have more cards when starting the game which will give them an advantage in the Ranked games.
  3. Before the Launch of the game Genesis collection holders will be able to stake their NFTs and earn $SMI. When the game launches players will be able to use $SMI for buying card packs or Arena tickets.

NFT Analytics and Whitelist marketplace Software

Inkpass brings you the power of web3.0 Data On-Chain and Off-Chain data analytics tool so that you can also get the insights of live and historic NFT trades and harness Artificial Intelligence to beat the competition and always stay one step ahead of the competition in NFT trading.

Together with that we bring the very first Whitelist Marketplace where nft brand owners, holders collide and collaborate with each other and come to a win win situation for all.

In Kirana Games, we aim to create the ultimate gamefi play to earn entertainment hub. Harnessing the blockchain’s power, we want to give the power back to the user. That’s, what we believe, is the only true path forward for the industry.  We have in-house web3 architects, marketers, artists, game studios, and gaming industry pioneers who are constantly brainstorming with financial economics and mathematics experts to build amazing projects with the right economy. The goal – truly rewarding play-to-earn experiences, that are also sustainable and uncompromising as we scale up.

In the pursuit to create the best NFT trading card game, we did extensive market research. During our research, we found a neat little F2P game called “Chroma: Bloom & Blight”. We really liked what the developers did for the game, so we successfully purchased all the assets and rights of “Chroma”. Our intention is to heavily modify the game to make it beginner-friendly and integrate the P2E and NFT mechanics.
