# About the project
PolyWars is a Play-to-Earn MMO space battle game on the blockchain. It's 100% governed by multiple smart contracts written in Solidity, and can be played with a dApp-enabled browser like MetaMask.
The goal is to level up your planet to mine RESS, an ERC20 Token and the native currency of the Polyverse. RESS can then be used to extend your fleet by minting random battle ships (ERC721 NFTs), to attack and loot other planets.
+ Tokens: Ships, RESS, Commanders
Our newest addition is a limited series Commander NFT, which will integrate with the gameplay and offer new possibilities - stay tuned!
+ Supported networks
PolyWars is a Multi-Blockchain Game, deployed to multiple networks, each forming it's very own Polyverse.
The following chains are supported - you can play on any of these, or even on multiple ones using the same wallet:
- Polygon Mainnet
- Polygon Testnet
- AVAX Testnet
- Metis Testnet
- NEAR Aurora Testnet (experimental)
- Binance Testnet (experimental)
- Meter Testnet (experimental)
- Theta Testnet (experimental)
- Oasis Emerald Testnet (experimental)
(Integrations marked as experimental may be "promoted" to Beta, or removed altogether in the future)
+ Smart Contracts
Every action in the game is a transaction on the blockchain, and all the game data is stored in smart contracts. PolyWars is currently powered by the following smart contracts, you can find the source code on Github for public review.
- RESS Token ($RESS, ERC20)
- BattleShip NFT ($SHIP, ERC721)
- Commander NFT ($CMNDR, ERC721)
- Upgradable Game and Marketplace Proxy (ERC1967)
- Versioned game- and marketplace library contracts to use with their proxy counterparts.
Current Smart Contracts deployed to the blockchain:
NEAR Aurora Testnet

# RESS tokenomics
The PolyWars ERC20 utility token RESS launches together with the game and our battleship NFTs. The initial token issuance will be 1,000,000 RESS, which will be distributed as follows:
|V.||Advisors / Contributors||10%|
There will be no pre-sale, private sale, whitelist, airdrop or such. 100,000 RESS (10%) will be deposited by the PolyWars team into liquidity pools (I.) funded with MATIC on selected decentralized exchanges, to jumpstart the trading of the token.
The warchest (III.) proceeds will be used to fund operations, development and upgrades to the dApp, NFTs, gameplay and the overall PolyWars ecosystem. This also includes business expansion, administrative expenses (e.g. accounting & legal fees), design and development costs, as well as marketing and airdrops/giveaways. Furthermore, the warchest will be used to fund bounties, hackathons, protocol upgrades and an eventual DAO creation.
The reserve (VI.) serves as an "emergency fund", pretty much like a gold reserve known from traditional fiat settings, e.g. to be able to counteract illiquidity on DEXs.
Please note that the supply of RESS is not hard-capped, to ensure the continuous gameplay and unlimited expansion of the Polyverse.
# Meet the team
The PolyWars team members found each other on Reddit in August 2021, and since then have worked full steam ahead, turning a simple idea into an unstoppable project. We're proud of what this excellent team of enthusiasts has accomplished, without any budget or funding, in their free time.
Since we're all gamers here, let us introduce ourselves with our gamer-tag:
