Ethlas is a free-to-play GameFi Metaverse that was awarded “Best NFT/GameFi project” by Polygon Foundation in December 2021. Players login with MetaMask, play different genres of games, and earn Gems when they rank on the leaderboard! Their investors are high profile executives from Coinbase, CoinMarketCap, Global Blockchain Innovative Capital, Venturra Capital, Grab and many more. They are positioned to be the aggregator of all Web 3.0 play-to-earn games for consumers & game studios, with plans for their XGEM token sale (on-going), NFT sale, governance token sale, and land sale in the next few months.
Ethlas just concluded the pre-sale of XGEMs, their in-game currency, which was 100% sold out in a few hours. If you’ve missed that, there is still a chance to participate:
Not only are they rewarding early supporters up to 702% APY, their innovative staking mechanism seeks to revolutionise the way we see staking and NFTs in the future.
The most interesting feature of the staking event is their innovative staking token — SGEMs (Staked GEMs). Each SGEM is actually configured as an ERC 721 token that has the features of both a staking contract on the backend, but also a NFT on the front. In fact, it’s 3 things in 1!
When you stake with Ethlas, you receive a unique SGEM ERC 721 token:
But wait, here’s the kicker! Upon vesting, you can choose to claim your original LP token and all GEM rewards attached. However, should you decide to claim, the NFT will be destroyed and you will lose all value attached to the artwork. Alternatively, you can hold the NFT like a piece of Crypto Punk art, or sell it on OpenSea, together with the staking contract.
This brings staking and NFTs to a whole new level as SGEMs are charged with yield bearing properties and cements a high floor price while trading on OpenSea. Read our pro guide on XGEM sale and staking here.
The XGEM pre-sale started on 26 December, 22:00H (UTC +8) and has been 100% sold out. Here’s how to still get involved:

Additionally, the first 50 wallets who stake more than $2000 USD worth of LP tokens will be airdropped a free Komo egg. First come first serve!
