Nitro League is a decentralized game metaverse where the community can earn tokens by racing futuristic cars competitively or exploring the many in-game activities casually.
Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) have gained tremendous popularity among the crypto community since the beginning of 2021, reaching $13 billion in Sales by October 2021. It is being recommended as the number one choice for investment by most financial experts around the globe. The gaming community has been spending on digital assets for decades, and NFTs have become the most logical way for gamers to own their assets, even outside the game. Despite the fact, only about 20% of the NFT assets are game-related, because of how new the NFT marketplace is. Even the NFT games that have been released were produced in unrealistically tight timelines without paying much attention to game quality or logic.
The team at Nitro League has been creating games for decades and aims to launch the first-ever high-quality, sustainable, and addictive NFT racing game to hit the market. Our vision is to leverage the true power of blockchain technology by making every aspect of the game decentralized, so the community can hold all the power in the game.
The year is 3050. The world has evolved and progressed into a very optimistic future. There were no apocalyptic events in the past. Technology is the best we can envision, which includes buildings, power & energy supply, and preservation of nature (greenery). Public transport vehicles are all self-driving and mostly flying. Land space on earth is usually used for nature (plants, animals, water bodies, etc.)
Communities are productive and wealthy with all necessities of life taken care of (food, water, power, education, etc.). People work only to support their hobbies. Needless to say, the most hard-working people are the ones with luxurious hobbies (i.e. collecting cars), and the most well-paid jobs are to fuel these hobbies (i.e. car racing). There are no roads on land like in 2020. Car racing is one of the main sports in 3050 (similar to horse racing in 2020).
The city of Ethermoor hosts the biggest racing events in the universe. The ancient city was created by racing enthusiasts and is built to promote the racing craze for the entire universe. Status, power, honor, and wealth are now earned through racing in the grand Nitro arena. In the middle of the city lies the main attraction, the grand racing arena. The best place in the universe to witness innovative cars and thrilling races. Drivers from around the world dream of getting a chance to race at the grand arena.
The known universe in 3050 is ruled by “The Supreme Six”. These 6 nations have managed to live in harmony for centuries with an understanding of each other’s differences. Any disputes that do arise are settled the old fashion way - a well-executed sports tournament. The most popular of these sports is car racing, and the best events are hosted in the city of Ethermoor at the Nitro Arena.
The players are divided into clans that are part of a nation. Nations are known for their unique racing skills and technology. There can be any number of clans in each nation registered by real-world Nitro Elders. To race in the Nitro League, players must join a clan. Players are rewarded a badge (rank system) by the clan based on their Reputation Points (RP). Players can switch nations or clans at any time; however, switching nations or clans have consequences (like losing nation/clan-specific attribute bonuses and locations).
When players win matches, they earn RP from the matches and lose it when they don't perform. If the player reaches a certain tier/rank and stops playing the game, there would be a decay in RP which would be demoting the player’s account to help other active players reach higher tiers.
Nitro League offers some of the most exotic futuristic NFT cars the world has ever seen. All cars in our game universe are built for racing and can be traded in real-world NFT marketplaces. The designs are inspired by different eras, starting from the year 2020 up to the year 3050.
The value of any car can be gauged by its rarity - Common, Uncommon, Rare, Special, and Legendary. Common cars are cheaper to buy and don't perform as well in races; whereas, rare cars are produced in lesser numbers, are more expensive, and perform better in races. Players can customize their cars for the race conditions with different components to influence the outcome of the computer-simulated races.
There are 6 main car classes derived from the unique talent and technologies offered by “the Supreme Six” nations. Each class comes with its unique advantage on the race track giving attribute bonuses for Reputation, Speed, Acceleration, Handling, and Durability.
Produced during the year 1900 to 2020, this class includes 4-wheel vehicles that are street, sports, rally, and drag cars. These are the original designs, the leaders of the pack, that inspired all the models to follow for years to come. The cars in this class have been winning for over a thousand years, breeding confidence, and naturally gaining people's trust. The designs have been extremely charismatic, charming, and intimidating on the race tracks since the beginning. This class is suited for the strong-willed who believe that nothing can stand in their way.
Produced during the year 1950 to 2050, this class includes 4-wheel vehicles that are street, sports, rally, and drag cars. Although very similar to Alpha class vehicles, Beta class vehicles were designed to be safer, stronger, and long-lasting with exceptionally better handling. They are friendlier looking on the race track, and not as intimidating; hence, overshadowed by the reputation of Alpha class. This class is suited for reserved players who believe that defense is their best offense.
Produced during the year 2500 to 3050, this class includes 2 to 3 wheel vehicles that are rocket, bike, and bullet-style. These vehicles are made for adventurous journeys and constant exploration. They possess the capability to create their own path on the race tracks due to their slim size and skillful aero-dynamics. The vehicles in this class are fully aware of their surroundings and can make quick moves to stun their opponents. These vehicles are vulnerable to being pushed around by other classes due to their lightweight design. This class is suited for independent players who believe in quick take-offs and always rush to the finish line while keeping their distance from other racers.
Produced since the year 3000, this class includes hover vehicles that are street, sports, and muscle cars. This class hasn’t been around for a long time, but it has the fastest vehicles the world has ever seen. The hover cars are the most technologically advanced piece of machinery ever invented and can withstand any criticism from old-timers about having no wheels. Having so much speed does give them a slight disadvantage in terms of their poor handling on the race tracks. With artificial intelligence controlling most functions, the vehicles in this class are the most calculated and evolved on the race track. This class is suited for the self-assured nerds who are driven by performance and enjoy the action more than the rewards.
Produced since the year 2020, this class includes F1-style vehicles that are 4-wheelers, 3-wheelers, 2-wheelers, and hover cars. These vehicles have been around for as long as the Alpha class and produced up to recent times (year 3050); however, their looks have not been changed very much, making them very deceptive on the race track. They are very agile when racing and can overtake opponents in the blink of an eye. To prove their mad skills; however, they are self-sabotaging by nature. Even the slightest nudge from any other class can make them go flying off the race track. This class is suited for the old-timers who believe that F1 cars are the best thing that ever happened to racing.
Produced in the year 3000, this class includes 4-wheel vehicles that are street, sports, rally, muscle, and drag cars. Although fairly new, the reputation of vehicles in this class is a rockstar and is thought to surpass that of Alpha class in the future. Similar to the Omega class, Sigma is also the most technologically advanced class in the world. The vehicles are known for their artificial intelligence providing very calculated and evolved skills on the race tracks. Sigma has come up with some of the most exotic futuristic car designs the world has ever seen, along with the most well-balanced racing attributes. This class is suited for the cunning racers who are confident in their skills and don’t like playing by the rules.
Nitro League offers a wide selection of drivers to choose from. Selecting the right driver for a race is just as important as the car to win any event. Players can own multiple drivers (NFTs) in their inventory and choose the one best suited for each race.
Driver traits set them apart from each other and affect the outcome of the race. These traits include passion, confidence, mood, reaction time, and risk-taking. The more you train with a driver, the better they perform in races. Drivers do get tired which affects their mood inversely, so players can relax their drivers by taking them to a spa or club.
Each car is made up of 8 different performance parts - Engine, Spoiler, Tires/Hover Disks, Breaks, Booster Kit, Hood, Air Intake, and Exhaust. Car parts can be upgraded to give an attribute bonus to the car. Cars with better parts have a higher chance of winning races. Car parts are NFT assets that can be sold separately or bundled with the car.
Car decorations can be upgraded to give a reputation bonus to the car, and visual styling/personalization. Cars with better decorations have a higher chance of selling at a better value in the marketplace. Decorations are NFT assets that can be sold separately or bundled with the car.
Power-ups (boosters) are consumable items and are used once per race. A player can own many boosters; however, they can only choose to use 2 boosters in a single race.
Nitro League offers beautiful accessories to personalize your driver. These accessories are not just for show, they also improve your chances of winning the race. Each trait of a driver gets upgraded with helmets, jackets, gloves, and boots. These accessories come in different rarities and can be used by any driver.
Fusion Cloning is one of the most sought-after activities in the game. It is performed to produce new unique vehicles in the game which are faster and more valuable than the genesis cars. To perform fusion, the player must own the 2 genesis cars required for fusion, as well as other requirements stated on the blueprints rewarded to the player.
The garage is a very high-tech laboratory-type personal space. It has robotic machinery and digital controls all over. The player will spend most of the time in their garage, which will feature mini-games, car upgrades, store, social activities, notifications, asset showcase, and much more.
Nitro League provides one of the best motorsports management game experiences on the blockchain. There are several racing events held on the 6 islands of Nitro Prime. Players can evaluate the conditions of each race (track, weather, etc.) and equip the best suited NFTs (car, drivers, upgrades, power-ups, etc.) to dominate other players in the race and win big rewards.
The whole objective of the game is to know which items in your inventory are best suited for the race conditions in a specific event. There are a whole range of NFT items available on the marketplace including cars, car upgrades, drivers, driver accessories, power-ups, and pit robots. All of these NFT assets come in different rarities, so keeping a combination of assets that compliment each other for suitable events is a sure way to dominate the race tracks.
Several exciting race tracks are available in the game to challenge and entertain the players. Races will have to make educated decisions about which car, driver, and car components to use depending on the race track. Following are some of the track features that will affect the outcome of the race.
Depending on which island the race event is held on, the weather will vary drastically. Players that possess the best knowledge of how these conditions affect the race will have a better chance of winning.
There are 6 main weather conditions that an event can have - sunny, cloudy, windy, rainy, snowy, and foggy. Players must choose suitable tires for rain, suitable headlights for better visibility in fog, and durable cars for windy conditions. Taking a hover car in a windy race can end up in undesirable results.
This is where the Play-to-Earn excitement really begins. Players get to drive their NFT cars on the track and race against each other. The game provides many opportunities for racers to show off their driving skills and dominate other players on the leaderboard. The ones who succeed get big rewards and recognition.
Players will compete in events to ultimately see who is the best driver in the metaverse and win rewards accordingly. Players can enter free events with smaller rewards using their free cars; however, they must own a premium NFT car to enter events with bigger rewards. Players' performance in races determines their ranking on the Daily event leaderboard, yielding prizes.
Players with high scores in the Daily events will be invited to race in the Weekly tournaments, where top players are promoted to a higher rank based on their skill (RP level). At the end of every season, top-scoring players in the tournaments are invited to compete against top players in the quarterly “Championship event” with a HUGE audience and HUGE rewards.
Owning land on Nitro Prime is a revenue-generating business. This is because a portion of the revenue generated from the races that take place on an island is distributed to the landowners of that island. The more land plots you own, the more revenue you earn per race. There are 6 islands on the planet offering a total of 60,200 land NFTs in different sizes and locations.
Land NFTs will be available for sale in drops of 500-1,000 plots. The genesis drop of Land NFTs for one of the islands is scheduled for release this summer.
Land is a very valuable NFT item that allows for flexible ways of earning money based on the interests of the land owner. Following are some of the ways a land NFT can be utilized:
Players can purchase buildings and structures to personalize their living space. There are several types of customizable building NFTs available in Nitro Prime. The type of building you can place on the land depends entirely on how big your plot is.
Communal Space provides common services to the players for relaxation, fitness, socialization, etc. Communal spaces are owned by guilds and clans, who will charge a fee for their services. The initial communal spaces that will be released on the Nitro Prime will include clubhouses, pool areas, fitness centers, game rooms, concert halls, shopping malls, parks, etc.
There are 82 unique landmark NFTs that will be released in the game. Guilds, clans, or players can own landmarks. Land closer to famous landmarks will have a higher value. Landmarks will consist of monuments, castles, bridges, observation points, and other architectural wonders. These landmarks once existed on Earth and have been transported to Nitro Prime in their ruined state as a reminder for the importance of peace. Some of the landmarks you will find in the game are Eiffel tower, Burj al Arab, Colosseum, Statue of liberty, Taj Mahal, Leaning Tower of Pisa, etc.
Production factories will truly decentralize the game by letting the community build the Nitro world. Factories will be owned by players or guilds to produce their own NFT assets including cars, drivers, props, tracks, buildings, etc. There will be a total of 200 factory plots on Nitro Prime. You can get access to a factory by directly purchasing the plot or leasing it for a fixed period of time.
Production limits are controlled by distribution of production tokens. Landowners are rewarded production tokens for taking part in various activities in the game. These production tokens can be traded with Factory owners to increase their production capacity. Factory owners will be able to monetize through the initial sale of their NFTs, transaction fees, sponsorships, transportation fees, fusion fees, and much more.
The Nitro team's vision is to make the ownership of Nitro metaverse truly decentralized with respect to technology, authority, and economy. Nitro holders will be able to participate in key economic decisions by staking their tokens in the ecosystem.
Nitro League is a platform providing NFT assets that the players can own in the real world. Unlike conventional gaming, where the game assets do not hold any real-world value, Nitro assets can be traded freely on any marketplace outside of the game. Aside from NFT assets, players are awarded credits and Nitro tokens for performing well in friendly racing competitions using their NFT cars. Players spend a great deal of time and money acquiring their favorite assets, and the beauty of NFT assets is that no matter what happens to the game or the developer, the player remains the rightful owner of the NFT assets and tokens which can never be monopolized by the game developer.
Nitro League is a skill-based game with unlimited possibilities for expansion to provide endless entertainment to the gaming community. Nitro League presents an open-world metaverse with beautiful landscapes and structures as far as the eye can see. As the game community grows, players will be able to freely roam around in different cities and own garages, tracks, factories, and land. Our vision is to leverage the true power of blockchain technology to make every aspect of the game decentralized so the community can hold all the power in the game. Players will be able to create and host racing events and other activities and broadcast them online for a real-world sporting experience. Nitro League will also invite sponsors and advertisers to help support the developers in the continued delivery of high-quality, fresh, and exciting content to expand the Nitro metaverse.
Genesis cars are the first batch of 5,000 NFT cars released by the Nitro factory. 4,200 of these cars will be on sale on the Terra Virtua marketplace soon. Genesis car holders will get special benefits starting with early access to the game's Beta version, as well as access to the premium loot box rewards.
Genesis cars will be selling on a bonding curve with each subsequent purchase increasing the price. Claiming of the genesis NFT cars will begin on 01 Feb 2022, and every claim will have a chance of winning a rare car decoration.
