The ecosystem offers a variety of NFT-based services, with a core element being their play-to-earn Role-Playing Game (RPG) that uses their proprietary tokens as a key part of gameplay.
A Heroic Endeavor
Step Hero is a fantasy-themed Decentralized Finance (DeFi) ecosystem on Binance Smart Chain (BSC) and Polygon. The ecosystem combines a Non-Fungible-Token (NFT) marketplace, DeFi yield farming, and a compelling NFT-based RPG in one compelling package.
The game mechanics allow players to have fun and profit at the same time, all while enjoying a social networking experience with other community members.
“Our game development team has over 15 years of experience creating world-class games with stunning visual and addictive gameplay. Over the years, we’ve been thinking about how to bring more value to the players of our games,” a post on Step Hero’s Medium blog reads. “We can now realize that goal thanks to blockchain technology and, in particular, NFT technology. By tokenizing our in-game characters and items into NFTs and creating a market for them, we can now bring those items real-life value from which our users can benefit.”
What is Step Hero?
The Step Hero ecosystem is the perfect combination of NFT gaming & DeFi, enabling users to have fun and earn profit simultaneously.
The three main facets that make up the ecosystem are as follows:
Step Hero RPG game
The gaming aspect of Step Heroes where good and evil wage war in an RPG format. Fight in battles, increase your energy and grow stronger using NFT cards..
A farming and staking environment in which players can earn new HERO NFTs.
- NFT Marketplace
A cross-chain marketplace where NFTs can be minted, sold or bought. Users can hold NFT auctions, purchase new NFTs, and benefit from affiliated programs.
The three tenets form a diverse ecosystem in which players can battle against Lucifer’s hordes while they earn during the process.
From the Step Hero Medium post detailing the project:
The $HERO token is the native token of the Step Hero ecosystem. The token has a number of functions, including as a means of exchange, and accruing farming points for NFT in-game redemption. Through the staking and farming of $HERO tokens, users can acquire new NFT character cards to be used in-game.
HERO has four main uses in the ecosystem:
HERO Farming: HERO tokens are used for farming tokens that can be redeemed for NFTs.
Payment in HNM: HERO tokens are what is used for payment in the Step Hero NFT Marketplace.
In-Game Payment: In-game transactions are made in $STEP, the in-game currency. Users will have to buy $STEP using $HERO.
Voting: Holders of a certain amount of $HERO tokens will have voting power on decisions regarding project development.
Name: HERO token
Network: BSC & Polygon
Total supply: 100,000,000 HERO
Step Hero intends to roll out further use cases for their $HERO token as the project advances.
