Nine Chronicles is a free to play blockchain MMORPG powered by the players. The game is a 100% decentralized fantasy world and is the first game based on Libplanet, a new Distributed Ledger Technology library for implementing P2P MMO games.

The game world doesn’t depend on a company — since it's not based on a central server that hosts it, but on the computers of the users, it can exist as long as there are players.

Right now is still in a sort of beta but it’s said that it will be Open Sourced and fully moddable in the near future. The official statement is that players will be able to "Design levels and features, send contributions through Github, fork, and launch new networks with friends."

The game uses NGC - Nine Chronicles Gold as the only currency. Right now the only way of obtaining this is mining and trading with other players. In the pre-release, around November 2020, limited coins were available to be bought for real cash - and they sold out quite fast. In the near future (end of May probably), there will be a way to quickly convert your NGC to other currencies, right now you can only do this by trading directly with another player - luckily the mods are always open to act as a middleman so it's at least safe even if not convenient. The current rate is somewhere around 50 NGC for a Dollar.

To mine, you just need the launcher on. It only uses a part of one core so you shouldn’t feel it on any good computer - but if you don't have something really fast don't expect to gain much - more or less only the last generations of top CPUs can farm these days. You get 10 NGC per block mined. There are also ways to mine without the launcher but check the discord for more info on that (swarm miner channel).

You can mine the same block as someone else and only one of you will receive the credit for it.

It’s called reorg and it happens all the time so it’s normal (and annoying :P ).


The game is mostly an idle one. For now, there is only one class available (warrior) and the gear is the only customization you can make - no skills or assignable stats when you level up as you would expect in an RPG. It uses an energy system so you can’t really fill all your day with it - this is made to prevent the market from being flooded by items. The energy fully refills the same for all the players when 1700 blocks have been mined (usually 1 every 10 seconds) and it takes around 6 hours.
