Featuring Player vs. Player (PvP) and Play-to-Earn mechanics, Planet Mojo will also use Augmented Reality elements and have a charitable eco-friendly component. Playable in a web browser, the game will allow players to own their teams as NFTs and play-to-earn in ongoing tournaments.

It will be dropping a set of 10,000 generative 3D animated NFT “Mojos” in the first quarter of 2022 that will be directly usable in games with other perks for early adopters.
