Mobox is a brawler-type game, operating on a seasonal principle. MBOX was one of the tokens promoted on Binance Launchpad, with a public lottery and sale in September 2021.
What is Mobox
Mobox, and its native token MBOX, make a bundle for a brawler-type metaverse game. The game’s structure also includes an NFT marketplace that builds the content of the MOMOverse world. Additionally, the game includes a yield farming mechanism, allowing for additional income by providing liquidity to MBOX decentralized trading pairs.
Just like other token-based games, Mobox has built-in governance through owning and locking the MBOX token. Governance sets seasonal changes to the game and the earnings structure.
Mobox is the typical fully crypto-driven game, a difference from projects that start out as another play to earn offering, while also adding limited NFT capabilities. Mobox has a complete cryptocurrency ecosystem, with presence on Binance, as well as decentralized pairs on PancakeSwap and ApeSwap.
The Mobox Community
The Mobox community has about 225K followers on Twitter. The game has also built an in-app communication centre, as well as a chat and comment function on its website. The Discord and Telegram communities are relatively inactive.
Mobox has a potential international outreach through decentralized trading despite the regions excluded by Binance. MBOX reveals a significant token distribution, as the asset is present in 188,259 Binance Smart Chain addresses. More than 90% of tokens are held in the top 10 addresses, but that ratio may change with time as more tokens are burned and paid out as rewards.
According to dApp Radar, Mobox:NFT Farmer has more than 11,000 daily users, a score that is rare for decentralized apps.
Who is Behind Mobox
The Mobox project looks highly active in terms of communication, game upgrades and marketing efforts. The funding for the game partially came from Binance Labs, which provided the seed financing for the game.
The Mobox team, despite the active communication, remains pseudonymous. Mobox has also made calls through its Medium handle on adding new members to its team. But for now, little is known about the people behind the project, except their readiness to build simple games with a significant yield farming component.
What Makes Mobox Unique
Mobox is a family of games that puts cryptocurrency first. Beyond the MOMOverse and character creation tools, Mobox relies on a solid tokenomics principle, with regular MBOX burns.
Mobox also keeps a Binance Coin (BNB) treasury and can adjust the price of MBOX through a smart contract, if its price on decentralized pairs falls below the 72-hour average. The total supply of MBOX of 1B tokens will also decrease in a series of planned weekly burns.
How to Make Money with Mobox
The flagship game, Block Brawler, is an evolving competition that will add daily mission-based rewards. The Mobox ecosystem also offers gamified staking of BNB or MBOX. The NFT Farmer game also allows locking in MBOX as veMBOX, to receive weekly prize draws.
The MOMO Farmer game requires MBOX or another compatible asset, which is staked into “crates” and accrues rewards and NFT drops. What is unique about Mobox is that the tokenomics model allows for locking up valuable NFTs to earn extra rewards.
MBOX and BNB can also be staked on SushiSwap and ApeSwap. As of December 2021, MBOX had the sixth largest level of rewards among Binance Smart Chain tokens, signaling significant interest in a rewarding project.
Accessing MBOX is possible through MetaMask, Binance Wallet and other BSC-compatible wallets. To access the game, some MBOX or BNB or BUSD tokens may be needed. Mobox requires a linked wallet and a Mobox account creation. All tokens can be acquired or swapped inside wallets, or through Changelly direct purchase.
Our Verdict for Mobox
Mobox offers simple gameplay, with a free to play initial option not requiring to own tokens or NFTs. The game is relatively easy to start, offering multiple staking options and yield farming dressed up as a gold collection simple game.
MBOX has a solid token burn program and does not offer outlandish return promises. The game still holds risk from exposure to the smart contracts of SushiSwap and ApeSwap, but not beyond the general risk for crypto assets.
Based on our rating scale, Mobox is still an up and coming game, with a rate of 29/50 points.
