What is spark? Spark is the token required to construct inanimate objects in the metaverse. Spark is the equivalent to a construction or factory worker. Spark hours refers to the number of hours it requires to build something in the metaverse. For example, to build a town house, you require 2600 spark hours. If you own 2 spark, it will take you 2600/2 = 1300 hours (over 54 days) to build your town house. Your spark does not get “used up”, and after you complete building, or at any time, you can remove your spark from the construction. Spark is non-transferable, and cannot be sold.
In the future, there will be an in game spark exchange, where players can rent out their spark. Until then, people are using several discord channels and third party services as dev shops, in order to coordinate the rental of their spark. Some of these channels can be found in the directory. In addition to buildings, spark will be used to build any inanimate object and map assets (formerly outdoor decor items) in player owned factories. Beyond homes and map assets, spark is required to build cars – and in the future, players will be able to manufacture their own cars! Spark will also be used to power your car – like fuel.

*Note that in order to collect spark through treasure hunting and other methods, you are required to verify your identity with the KYC process (know your customer). Learn more about that here.
