An external wallet is only required if you wish to transfer these NFTs outside of the game environment. Moreover, players are entitled to three free NFT transactions each month, with this limit resetting on the first of every month. For those interested in unrestricted transfers, purchasing the Arkbound Pass will grant you unlimited transfer capabilities permanently.

Can I use the product without interacting or engaging with blockchain, NFT, or cryptocurrency?

Arkbound is built on ImmutableX, the leading Layer 2 for NFTs that's fully secured by Ethereum.
All NFTs traded on ImmutableX are always completely carbon neutral.

Does this product have a marketplace? What can I do with the things that I earn (or purchase)?

Yes, our product features a marketplace powered by Immutable X for transactions. Within this marketplace, you have the option to buy and sell items like Anima Prisms or Ark Stones with other players. This provides a dynamic platform for trading in-game assets as you wish.

What in-app or in-game purchases are offered in your product?

Our game offers a variety of in-app purchases, primarily focused on the "Arkbound Pass," which can be bought from the in-game cash shop.
