Space Nation Online's Beta Airdrop Event Rewards Players with Exclusive NFT Perks

Players engage in Space Nation Online's 'Cosmorathon' for exclusive NFT rewards.

Space Nation Online, a pioneering Ethereum-based MMORPG, has launched its 'Cosmorathon' airdrop event, offering players a chance to earn exclusive NFT rewards during its closed beta phase. The event, leveraging the Immutable zkEVM network, showcases the game's innovative approach to integrating blockchain technology with immersive gameplay.

Space Nation Online Launches 'Cosmorathon' Airdrop Event with Exclusive NFT Rewards

Space Nation Online, an Ethereum-based sci-fi MMORPG built on the Immutable zkEVM scaling network, has announced a 10-week airdrop rewards event during the game's closed beta.

On Monday, players who owned specific NFTs became eligible to receive "OIK shards" (essentially airdrop points) for Space Nation Online. Every day at 9:05 UTC, a snapshot of NFT holders is taken, and those players are given their OIK shards, which can be converted to OIK tokens at a 10:1 rate. OIK is the primary token for the entire Space Nation franchise.

Space Nation was established in 2019 by gaming industry veterans Jerome Wu and Tony Tang. The Los Angeles-based video game developer is supported by filmmaker Roland Emmerich, known as the "master of disaster" for directing films such as "Stargate," "2012," and "Independence Day."

Up to 10 million OIK tokens will be airdropped during the "Cosmorathon" event, which runs until the morning of June 16.

The number of shards gamers earn will vary depending on which NFT they own. The Alpha Gate NFT owners will earn 539.572 OIK shards per day, while the Prime Navigator NFT grants holders 289.715 OIK shards daily.

It's important to note that while shards do not have to be converted to tokens right away, they will expire once the event ends, making them instantly worthless.

This is the first phase of the event, and in phase two, "a series of social events will be released." There are currently no dates or additional information for this phase of the Cosmorathon.
