Ni no Kuni: Cross Worlds features its own blockchain technology using two token currencies

Released last May 25th, the cross-play mobile and PC MMORPG Ni no Kuni: Cross Worlds took a lot of players by surprise. The game features anime visual style, game modes such as Raids, PvP, and World Bosses, and a pet system complete with mini adventure games to train a familiar. But the feature that not a lot of players may know about is the inclusion of a blockchain system that uses two token currencies.

Ni no Kuni: Cross Worlds uses two token currencies for their blockchain. The one is Territe that you can earn by simply playing the game. But if you want to increase the Territe that you generate and hold, then you should level faster by paying. The other is Asterite. This is a currency you earn by playing in competitive modes like the Lava Valley 3v3 ranked matches. Just like Territe, you’ll also have an option to generate and hold more Asterite, which is by paying to boost your stats to rank higher in the PvP rankings.

There are some important notes that you should keep in mind:
  • Both tokens can be earned on PC and mobile platforms. Both currencies have uses in game to upgrade or purchase in-game items.
  • The Currency Exchange is ONLY on the PC version of the game at this time. Mobile players probably won’t even know they are earning a currency that can be tokenized unless somebody tells them.
  • Territe is used to level up your items, craft new items, and upgrade your familiars.
  • Asterite is used to purchase upgrade items in the Medal shop, and it wouldn’t surprise me if there were other uses I have yet to find.
  • You can earn Territe by farming the Chaos Field instances and nodes in the Familiar Adventure Mode. You can AFK farm in the Chaos Fields, and even set the game to farm for you while the game is closed, making it easy to earn Territe even if you're not logged into the game.
  • You have a limited amount of Territe Energy, when it is exhausted, you can no longer earn Territe from farming until it has been replenished.
  • Asterite and Territe can be tokenized for their respective tokens NKA and NKT, and traded to your Marblex Wallet. Then you can exchange your tokens at a Crypto Exchange for something worth real money.
  • Black Diamonds are also available as part of the cash-currency exchange system, conceivably as an intermedium currency. We have yet to see how Black Diamonds are implemented up to this point.
  • Finally, the token system doesn’t go live until June 9th, so we have yet to see what the token economy will look like, how many people will attempt to exchange tokens, and how many people will end up buying them.
Just like Genshin Impact, Ni no Kuni: Cross Worlds also has a pity system, which actually lets you know how much you need to spend to get your guaranteed 4-star item, if you have the money to do so.

But it’s important to note that you can play the game without using its blockchain. You’ll still earn Territe and Asterite but if you’re not going to buy or exchange it, then you’ll use it like any other in-game currency. Also even if you just want to make a steady progress, it’s possible that it will cost you some real money in the long run.
