Presenting The Lab: A Web3 gamified platform to experiment with evolving NFTs

Creating artificial life with your MAD Metascientist is one of the main pillars of The Lab. The Metascientists are the only ones with the capability of using every feature that The Lab has to offer.

The Lab is an interactive dashboard for users that allows them to evolve their Metascientists, Metacells, and Nanocells. It also lets players track their progress and view their in-game token balance and boosters. By securely connecting their wallet to The Lab, players who own a MAD NFT can access various features. The Lab offers a unique level of utility and interactivity that other platforms do not.

THE LAB STEPS

  • Evolve: allows the user to view and advance their digital assets to the next stage of evolution once it has completed its current stage. This allows the user to continue the evolution process.
  • Merge: The introduction of third-party NFTs will enable users to merge their Metacells with other projects, such as Bored Ape Yacht Club and Cryptopunks, to accelerate the evolution process and unlock rare in-game items. This will provide users with new opportunities to advance their cells’ evolution and gain access to unique abilities.
  • Boost: The evolution of cells can be accelerated by using external project tokens or cryptocurrencies, such as $ADA. This will provide a temporary boost to the rate of cell evolution, allowing users to advance their cells more quickly and unlock new abilities. This feature provides an exciting new way for users to enhance their cells and progress in the game.
  • $BIOMETA: The in-game token that also allows users to boost their MAD NFTs further can be purchased with fiat, earned in-game during the evolution process or from staking, it can then be used to enhance your gaming experience and even to purchase digital assets from the games marketplace, The Field.

HOST PROTOCOL

When a MAD Metascientist introduces a “host” NFT to their Lab, their Metacell will spontaneously interact with the host, resulting in the creation of a new, custom version of the host NFT with traits from the original Metacell. These newly-minted NFTs can be reintroduced into the MAD Metaverse ecosystem through the Petri Dish to influence future evolutions and appearance, and can also be sold or traded with other players in The Field. This process allows users to create unique, customizable NFTs that can be used in various ways to enhance gameplay and provide users with a more unique appearance over other players.

CUSTOMISE YOUR LAB

By owning various Metascientists, users are provided with new environments, soundtracks, and abilities that can be used to customize their lab even further, giving them control over exactly how the game looks and feels. Items can also be purchased or obtained from the Host Protocol to achieve even more customization of The Lab, offering users the chance to make their game even more unique to them.

ALPHA TESTING

MAD is giving early adopters who own Metascientists or Metacells the opportunity to enter The Lab and take part in Alpha Testing, giving them a headstart in evolving their NFTs and getting ahead of the competition. Testing will also include a bug bounty program that gives players a chance to earn from any issues they might come across when using the platform.

THE INTERACTIVE HUB

The Lab is ultimately the platform and central hub for everything and anything MAD, allowing users to access any new game releases, interact with new and old friends, and of course experiment with the MAD Ecosystem, it’s your home away from home and will provide you with everything you need to begin fully immersing yourself in one of the most anticipated Metaverse projects coming in 2023.
