- Animalia Games is entertainment mixed with in-game economic value.
The all excitement in the gaming world mixed with crypto utilities has created a new market. Meme-inspired by cryptocurrencies has emerged with a touch of entertainment attached to it. DogeCoin and Shiba Inu lead the way while Dogelon Mars, Doge Dash, Ariva, Kitty Inu, and Loser Coin were inspired by the previous two. These meme coins, the value attached to gemstones, and the available market for crypto games are part of the inspiration for Animalia.
Animalia was crafted by friends that are gamers “to popularise crypto-inspired meme critters and gemstones in the form of NFT cards which are customizable and tradable using blockchain technology,” says the Whitepaper.
What is Animalia?
Animalia is entertainment mixed with an economic value game designed to share the love for meme coins and gemstones while creating economic value in utilities like NFTs for its users.
It is built on the Binance Smart Chain and is embedded with features that permit users to create, own, trade, and fight with in-game collectibles. Rewards are also earned as each of these activities is carried out.
How Does Animalia Work
First, players have access to get Rare Cards and create NFTs which are used for the in-game activities. These NFTs are used as fighting equipment either as the Avatar of the player or weapon or support.
Titans: The player’s Avatar is called Titan. Titans fight to defeat each other in a battle.
Critters: Critters are another element of battle that can be summoned as help when a particular Titan is almost in defeat.
Weapons are another ability that Titans can be equipped with for fighting. Gemstones: They are special elements just like in reality, they are used to embellish Titans, Critters, and Weapons with a special power for battle.
The Marketplace is where all of these utilities can be traded.
The Landscape is where the battles or matches take place. In Landscapes, Titans can find precious stones that give an advantage to the player. Landscapes can also be upgraded from time to time. Sometimes players can decide to sell a Landscape.
There are Game Rules that determine how the game in Animalia goes as well as Reward System for players.
The three Reward Systems are Trading, where assets can be solved for money in the marketplace; NFT Renting which allows players to rent their NFTs for a token and In-game Rewards for passing from one stage of the game to another.
The Workshop allows “the creation of unique customizable skins, templates, and items for inclusion in the Animalia Kingdom,” according to the Website.
“Artists will be able to create and submit their own unique cosmetic NFT assets, which will be curated by the Animalia team, and then reviewed and approved by the community through the governance model.”

Tokenomics of Animalia
$ANIM is a BEP-20 core utility token used as the native token for the Animalia Kingdom. The total supply of $ANIM is fixed at 87 million. Part of the design of the ecosystem is to make the token deflationary.
Apart from $ANIM, users can use $BNB for some activities in the game.
The three uses of the $ANIM token are for purchases from the marketplace, DAO governance, and staking to earn rewards.
Another token, the Phylum $PHL is also deployed in the Animalia game. It’s an in-game token that can be earned in the Play-to-earn mode. You can read about it here.
