2. Get MATIC and other tokens

Next, you must buy some MATIC, which is the native token of the Polygon network. You need this token to pay for transactions.

On OpenSea, the cars for REVV Racing can only be bought using wETH and REVV, the native token of REVV Racing and other racing cars. Because you also need REVV to play, it’s good to get some.

3. Buy one or more cars

Once you have some MATIC in your wallet, head over to OpenSea, a secondary marketplace for digital items. Search for REVV Racing and you’ll be presented with a list of cars for purchase. You can buy some of them for as little as $2.

Cars are available to buy in either wETH  or REVV tokens. Alternatively, if you don’t want to trade in cryptocurrencies, OpenSea also allows you to buy with a credit or debit card.

4. Now register your account for REVV Racing

Now go to the official website and create your account. You will also need to verify your account. REVV Racing does this to prevent bots from invading their game and taking advantage of the play-to-earn features. Many Web3 gaming platforms put KYC measures in place, so their economies remain stable and open for everyone.

5. Ready to race and earn REVV

Once you’ve done all of this, you’re ready to practice, enter tournaments, earn REVV tokens and earn in-game racing items and collectibles.

How to play REVV Racing

Like any racing game, the basics of this one are simple: steer your car around the track and cross the finish line first.

On a computer keyboard:

  • W is accelerate
  • S is brake
  • A and D to steer left and right
  • Press C to switch camera angles between first and third person.

Alternatively, you can use the arrow keys to move and steer.

The main competition format in REVV Racing is their tournament series. Players compete against thousands of opponents to claim first place. You need five REVV tokens to enter, and these entry fees form a large part of the final prize pool.

Some tournaments have bigger prize pools than other ones, so make sure you keep an eye on the schedule to have a chance to win the big rewards.

What makes REVV Racing innovative?

Ownership

One of the main features of blockchain-based games is the chance for players to own their in-game items. Instead of buying an item and then only being able to use it within a game, players can now use what they buy, and then sell it on the open market if they want.  

Today’s gaming experiences, on mobile and console, often have in-app options to buy add-ons and upgraded equipment that help players get to the next level. With those sorts of games, you can purchase a new racing suit, a helmet, or a new vehicle, and progress to the next level. Once you stop playing the game though, those items become worthless.

With REVV Racing, you can upgrade, play with and own everything you buy. But you can also trade it later on and maybe even make a profit. And all of it is fully secured by blockchain technology, which puts the power into the hands of gamers.

Earning potential

There are two ways to earn money with REVV Racing:

  • The first way is the fun way. Win races against opponents to come out on top in tournaments. This puts gaming first, and earning rewards is a great added bonus.
  • Alternatively, you can buy assets – REVV tokens and in-game NFTs – with a view to selling them for profit in the future.

It’s part of wider ecosystem

Playing REVV Racing means you have access to the wider Animoca Brands ecosystem. They’re a top Web3 company with some of the biggest blockchain platforms in their control.

Specifically, REVV Racing is part of REVV Motorsport, which contains the following games:

REVV is the native token for these games. So you can spend the rewards you earn from Formula E: High Voltage on items in MotoGP Ignition.

With more interoperability coming to Web3 gaming, we imagine a future where cross-platform competitions will become the norm. Players will be able to take their avatar to digital race tracks all over the internet and compete to become the best racer across all of them.
