The natural resources fields were one of the few well-kept secrets in Lootverse, and they were finally revealed. The first six fields within the world were disclosed to the Parliamentarians on the Discord channel. The mines are rich in Oil, Natural Gas, Condensate, and Condensate and Oil combined. The mines stretch across several plots of land. Lootverse has a total of 4,880 NFT properties, and the location of the natural resources was randomly tagged on the map.
The elements in six other mines are still to be discovered and may contain common substances like water, precious minerals such as gold, or even rare items like dragon’s breath and gravity. Even though creativity and fantasy are essential in Lootverse, this parallel world is a realistic environment, and this aspect was not neglected.
Each mine is also an NFT and landowners gifted with a parcel of these fields can benefit from its exploration. Soon, Lootizens will be able to acquire a natural resource extraction plant (NREP) and tag it to their plot. That allows them to extract the specific natural resource token available underground.
As landowners build their own residential or corporate structures to live, sell or rent, they also need utility plants to convert natural resource tokens into consumable units. Those plants are to provide the power necessary to serve the demand from that property, supplying to residents or companies operating in the region.
Another similarity with Earth is that, in Lootverse, not all natural resources are clean. So, depending on the type processed by utility plants, they might generate pollution units. The solution to counteract this problem is to use offset tokens to decrease their pollution footprint.
Like in the physical world, a virtual property with proven reserves may be more likely to be subjected to appreciation in the future. Although it is impossible to predict the real impact of this element on Lootizens, it is not questionable that it will elevate the fun in the Lootian lifestyle.
