The colonies operate in segmented-but-connected economies, with each DAO having the freedom to adjust its economy to what works best for its own needs while maintaining interchain trade routes.
The Martian economy is entirely community-owned and governed. With each new colonization cycle, colony economies are connected via trade routes.
Mars Colony is a game and community meant to be enjoyed. As crypto vets and gamers, we aim to use crypto to create something gamers enjoy. As employment in late-stage capitalism becomes increasingly coercive and exploitative, we wanted to create a space where you don't have to feel like gaming is taking away from time you could be working to meet your needs. This won't be an income replacement for everyone, but it can be for many and, at the very least, will reward you for contributing to a community and playing a game you enjoy. As you play, opportunities to burn CLNY tokens (thereby reducing supply) will present themselves. This is essentially a way of emulating the real world, in which things cost money. The difference is that you aren't paying a corporation; you're burning to reduce inflation, paying into the community treasury, or rewarding your fellow players. It's a people-first, bottom-up economy we feel good about participating in instead of lamenting the wealth concentration and exploitation of the current world. Simply by playing, you're creating something better.
