Getting started in a Play-to-Earn game might seem intimidating at first. It’s hard to imagine how you can earn money when you don’t have a lot to begin with. That's what we’re going to tell you about today, thanks to the generosity of a few experienced players who shared their experiences on our Telegram and Discord channels.
How Do I Begin To Make Money on StarCrazy
Buy Starz and resell them for a higher price
Buy Starz and put them in the mine to earn for you
Reinvest earnings to buy more Starz
More Advanced Methods
LP Mining (make & stake IOTX/GFT LP tokens) - If this is Greek to you, sit tight. We’ll explain it later
Syrup Pool (Farms) Stake GFS to earn GFT
Fusing Starz to create more valuable Starz (risker and not recommended for beginners on a budget)
The first two options require a few steps so don’t worry about them right away. You might want to start more simply.
We’ll assume you’ve set up and funded your ioPay Wallet and are ready to open the StarCrazy game, either on your phone (available directly in ioPay Wallet under Discover) or on your desktop at game.starcrazy.com. If you’re starting from scratch use this video to get started.
Player Strategies for playing StarCrazy:
Jeff W on our Telegram Channel gave us one simple way to get started.
If you want to grow your initial investment and never have to add “fresh” money.
- Go to the Free Market
- Buy the biggest DigP card you can afford
- Dispatch it to the mine
- Be patient, let your Starz accumulate daily GFT (paid every 10 seconds, actually)
- Wait about a week or two (or until you’re satisfied)
- Claim your earned GFTs
- Using your new GFTs (rewards),
- Go to the Free Market, and (buy the biggest card you can afford…).
- Repeat this process with the newly earned GFT (to buy a new Starz). Now, you’ll have 2 Starz mining for rewards (then 3, 4, etc.). The wait time gets smaller and smaller thanks to compounding.
- After a few months, you should have 9 Starz all mining for you (after using this strategy of compounding)
It just takes patience, but it works (I can testify)
Thanks Jeff! That’s totally doable and just the right strategy for someone on a budget. Those are the people we want to help get rolling.
Variant to playing StarCrazy #2
Here’s a variant offered by ColdSp1r1t in StarCrazy Discord
My starting strategy would be as follows…. Initially you can buy up 9 low priced marketplace cards. Sort by DigP. Just get your entry cards staked into the StarMine
Once you have obtained 9 cards, slowly replace them thru your earnings, scan the marketplace for deal cards. Generally, the floor for 1000 DigP has been around 4 GFT
Choose your Method
Ultimately, it is up to your own preference on which strategy works best for you. Maybe it’s buying all 9 Starz right away, or perhaps it’s more fun for you to gather your collection over time. It’s your universe, you decide!
Hint: However you play, keep in mind your opponents will be gearing up for battle! Get your team in star-shape in preparation for the coming PvP battlefields.
In Part 2 of this Tips for Beginners series, we will cover the more advanced methods for earning with LP mining (Liquidity Pool) and Syrup Pools.
