#19 Monthly Special: Happy New Year, UFO Army!
Looking back on the past and forward to the future
Happy New Year, UFO Army! We are only hours from the beginning of 2023.
This article will review the previous year's development, progress, and accomplishments. In addition, we will discuss the future of UFO Gaming and what our loving community can anticipate in the coming years.
As we approach the new year, we wanted to take a few moments to reflect on UFO Gaming’s development, success, and accomplishments over the past two years. This has been an amazing and fruitful trip thus far, and we could not have done it without the support of our community.
In the past few years, we’ve reached a market cap of over $1.5 billion, entered the top 100 projects on CoinGecko and CoinMarketCap, and been listed on 16 exchanges. In addition, we announced twelve solid partnerships with highly regarded blockchain companies & projects.
One of the most significant events of the last year was the release of our debut game, Super Galactic Alpha, which has already been tested by 1,565 players. And with the creation and development of our NFT marketplace and version 1 of the Metaverse, we are positioning ourselves as a key participant in the blockchain gaming industry.
As we enter the new year, we are eager to continue building on this solid foundation and providing even more value to the community. We appreciate your support and are excited to see where UFO Gaming and the #UFOARMY go in the future.
Let’s look back at some of the milestones achieved within our first two years:
- Finished A Complete Rebrand

Looking into the crystal ball of UFO Gaming, there is no doubt that we are in for a spectacular journey.
It is important to know that certain product releases are essential prerequisites for others. For example, the staking dApp is needed in order for the Genesis NFTs to be minted by Plasma Points. Additionally, the NFT Marketplace is needed before minting can occur, and so on.
In a similar manner, development takes time, and there is no way to precisely give a release date for said products as we prioritize security and flawless user experience first. By providing a good experience from the get-go, our products will manage to speak for themselves and give our community the quality they deserve.
Let’s take a look into future happenings:
- New Roadmap and WP Release in early 2023
- Closed-Beta Game Launch
- Staking dApp finishes Plasma Point minting
- NFT Marketplace Release
- Genesis NFT Minting
- Breeding Contracts Live
- UAP launch (2nd token)
- Game Integration SCs
- Official Game Launch with fully capable
PVE & PVP multiplayer
- Virtual Land
- Metaverse V2 Build Out
- Launchpad Mechanism
- New Partnerships
The staking dApp is live and thriving, allowing users to stake UFO on Ethereum and bridge rewards to the Polygon blockchain, where over 70% of GameFi projects are running. Polygon is a fast, low-cost Layer-2 sidechain that is fully compatible with Ethereum so that users can enjoy the full UFO Gaming experience with lower gas fees. The staking app also allows users to earn rewards by staking both UFO tokens and UFO-ETH LP UNI-V2 tokens, with attractive bonuses for staking in the UFO-ETH LP pool.
In addition to the staking app, we have completed the design and game rules for Genesis NFTs and built a progression for genetic breeding in Super Galactic. Players will be able to earn UAP tokens and combine them with UFO to increase the breeding generation of their NFTs. We are also hard at work on the NFT marketplace, which will be the hub for NFTs and Dark Metaverse land and will feature all of the upcoming titles under the UFO brand.
Finally, we have been hard at work on Super Galactic, including testing the mobile versions and implementing multi-player features such as Death Match PvP and cooperative missions. We also have plans to support guilds and other social features to enhance the gaming experience with friends and enemies.
We are confident that all of these projects will be worth the wait and will bring exciting new experiences to UFO Gaming.
Dynamic Gaming Platform
In the future, UFO Gaming will launch as a dynamic gaming platform featuring a variety of games, virtual land, and an interactive “Dark Metaverse.” With a “One planet. One game” vision, this vast ecosystem will capture various markets and begin with the debut game, Super Galactic. To build this platform, we are releasing our products in several phases.
The first phase was (and still is!) the UFO staking app, which allows users to earn rewards and Plasma Points. These points can be used to mint rare NFTs called Genesis NFTs, giving users a chance to earn UAP and breed.
Earn Plasma Points and UFO Rewards by staking your UFO tokens. One deposit, multiple rewards.
Web site created using create-react-app
The second phase is the NFT Marketplace reveal, which will be the main hub for trading native assets.
The third phase is the launch of Super Galactic, where Genesis NFTs will be used to play the game, and breeding contracts will allow users to fuse two NFTs to create a new one. Our talented developers and resources will make all of this possible, bringing the excitement of a “One planet. One game” Metaverse to life.
Other phases will naturally follow, such as Virtual Land, new games, and new releases within the UFO Gaming platform.
