Earth 2 is intended to be a second Earth in futuristic form. A virtual and physical metaverse in which the geolocations of the world correspond digitally. We can buy, sell, customise and own these 1:1 scale terrains of the earth.
Phase 1 is now complete, we are in phase 2 with the release of resources. There are also the jewels, which boost resource production among other things. So there will be an economic simulation designed to provide Earth 2 with all the materials needed to build this odyssey.
Essence is the future cryptocurrency of Earth2 and is already available for collection/mining within the Earth2 metaverse. Despite this, the cryptocurrency has not yet been integrated into the blockchain but the forecast according to the whitepaper is that it will be launched during the planned bullrun in 2024.
As part of the rewards for early Earth2 users, Earth2 committed to distribute Essence (EDC) to any user who purchases a virtual plot on Earth2, guaranteeing them a minimum of Essence for each of their properties. This reward is only applicable to Tier 1 plots purchased on Earth2 before 3 December 2021.
20% of the total Essence promised was delivered to all users in December 2021, which was more akin to a cryptocurrency airdrop.
The rest of the Essence will be collected from Earth2 by logging in every day.
If you buy a T1 land on the market with some Essence on the property, you will be able to collect the remaining Essence from the land. Whatever you have collected before is kept by the seller.
Total market value of tiles sold : $176,028,865
