The land of the Eagle Boomtown is located farther north from the Yukon. The climate there is cold and inhospitable. The season in which the ground is thawed enough for mining is very short, giving the settlers a limited time before the land will again be covered with a thick blanket of ice making mining impossible.
Despite the freezing weather, there are a lot of prospectors willing to depart on the exhausting journey. This is because of the enormous amount of gold and other valuable resources buried in the soil of the Eagle Boomtown (WAX).
The mining season is quickly approaching, therefore there’s not much time to buy all the necessary equipment.
This time the auction of assets will have 248 stages, 1,5-hours each, and will last for 15,5 days. The logistics will be organized in the same way as within the Tombstone Boomtown (on EOS).
All buildings, tools, and equipment bought during the auction will be delivered to the central state plot of the Eagle Boomtown right before the start of the challenge.
Here’s the challenge: Boomtown settlers will only have around two months to develop their business and mine as much gold and other resources as they can. The goal is to finish the Railway and transfer the resources back to the permanent prospectors land Yukon before the Boomtown becomes a ghost town. If the settlers are able to accomplish this goal, they will reap the rewards.
Since time is of the essence, you’ll want to be prepared and hit the ground running. So before the launch of the first Boomtown, we will hold the Assets Auction on January 2nd, 2021 at 13:00 UTC, where you‘ll be able to purchase everything you need for a powerful start.
We want to highlight that this time the auction will be held on the WAX blockchain. The auction currency is WAX.
As always the auction is divided into stages. This time each auction stage will last 1,5 hours, so it’s easy to take part in it around the world. There will be 248 auction stages overall. Items for every stage are chosen randomly. The Boomtown’s Assets Auction will last until January 17.
Six Different Types of Assets for Different Purposes
During the auction of assets, you will be able to purchase the same list of lots, which were available on the Assets Auction before the Tombstone challenge.
All prospectors who are about to join the settlers on the expedition to the Eagle Boomtown will have a bit more then two weeks to acquire the tools and materials they want to take on the arduous journey.
Here’s a reminder of the types of assets available at the auction, and descriptions of sets available to bid on during the Boomtown assets auction There are six different types of assets, each with unique benefits:
Beginner’s Set — this is a set of different tools, one of each type. The beginner’s set will include one: Spade, Pickaxe, Axe, Shovel, Hammer, Sledgehammer, and Saw. With these tools, your workers will be able to fulfill any task in the Prospectors world. However, notice there is no Gold pan in this set, for that you will need the researcher’s set.
Researcher’s Set — These are the tools needed for exploring gold deposits. This set consists of three Gold Pans and three Pickaxes. With the Researcher’s Set, you’ll be able to explore 3 plots, as Gold Pan lifetime here is 1min, just enough to research one plot.
Building Set — This set will include all of the materials and tools needed to complete an entire building. You will be able to bid on the following buildings during the auction of the assets: Iron Furnace, Stone Workshop, Sawmill, Brickyard, Tool Workshop, Cart Factory, and a Manufactory. There will be eight sets of each building available to bid on.
Speculator’s Set — each set will contain 50 identical tools. A great opportunity to make a profitable business at the beginning. You’ll be able to buy sets consisting of 50 spades, 50 pickaxes, 50 axes, 50 shovels, 50 hammers, 50 sledgehammers, 50 saws, 50 plane tools, and 50 nail pullers. There are 9 of each type of speculator’s sets.
Transportation assets — these assets will enable workers to transport greater weight of cargo. Carts and Wagons are essential for moving large quantities of materials and resources… There are 2 kinds of assets with capacity extenders, such as 3 carts and a wagon.
Speed Boosters — after using any speed boosts, the speed of the worker increases, so he can reach any location much faster, and search for a job within x times larger area (4x, 9x, 16x). There are 3 different types of speed booster assets available on the auction, which are: 100 mugs of coffee, a donkey, and a horse. All of them have different specifications.
The launch of the Eagle Boomtown is scheduled for Wednesday, January 20, 2021.
