P2E games have recently become extremely popular, attracting a large number of gamers to participate. For gamers, this is how their passion can still bring value to them, which traditional games are challenging to achieve. Blockchain Gaming is a lucrative opportunity for investors for X2, even X10 their investment, and above all, its long-term potential will create an unpredictable explosive. Following the market trends, we are bringing to you a new game that operates on Binance Smart Chain and Polygon with excellent growth potential, which is Step Hero.
The StepHero ecosystem is the perfect combination of NFT gaming and DeFi that allow users to entertain and profit simultaneously, including Step Hero RPG game, Heroes Farming, and NFT Marketplace. Besides, StepHero also has a strong community helping players invest in activities to earn money from the game with friends or partners.
Play to earn is not a new form of gaming. It appeared a long time ago with the advent of games. But most of what players earn is limited by the game’s scope, not having much real-life value. Today, thanks to the development of NFT, technology has turned game items into valuable things. This has revolutionized the gaming market, making games more interesting, engaging, profitable, and meaningful for players.
Therefore the game sector is a very fast-growing market in the blockchain industry, especially with the increasing popularity of NFT. This market is expected to have great developments in the long term, not just instantaneously.
The story of Step Hero is rooted in the biblical myth of the war between the Archangel Gabriel and the Fallen Angel Lucifer. This religious story must be familiar to many people. In the game, the player takes on the role of a commoner who is lucky enough to have a piece of the God’s Jewel, which can destroy Lucifer. Under the guidance of Archangel Gabriel, players will embark on the journey of a Hero, collecting shards of the God’s Jewel to stop the evil plots of the main villain.
In order to begin your journey in Step Hero, you must purchase characters from either HERO stores or marketplaces. Before each battle, you can select your favorite characters to form a team. Heroes will constantly be upgraded in their power by completing tasks, winning PvP battles, and applying in-game items. Like traditional games, each player can use an equal number of Heroes in the battle; the minimum is 1, recommend 3 or 5.
There are two main modes of battle, including Full Auto combat and Manual combat:
- For Full Auto combat mode, no one can interfere with the match, and everything operates automatically. It will be helpful if you do not have much time to play.
- For Manual combat mode, the player prepares weapons and additional items before the battle. The players can build their squad of Heroes, then find a match to choose someone to battle.
(Heroes can be upgraded through daily mission)
You can complete your daily missions to upgrade their strength, rank, and receive valuable items.
There are many maps with varying degrees of difficulty, and you can choose among the unlocked maps that match your Heroes level. In other words, the maps will reflect the player’s progress.
The World map is divided into various areas, including sub-maps corresponding to the levels you need to complete. Then you will have a boss-killing mission after 3 or 5 levels.
For the rewards, you can unlock heroes, weapons, or items after conquering an area.

Unique Selling Point (USP)
Step Hero Collectibles
Each character in the game (Heroes) is a limited NFT, classified by different Rarity and Elements. The rarer the items you own, the higher the profit from selling it.
Heroes are divided into two groups:
- HERO: They are Common to Rare heroes. These items can be redeemed with the Reward Points generated from Heroes Farming.
- HERO LP: They are Super Rare and Legendary heroes. These items can be redeemed with reward Points generated from Heroes LP Farming only.
As a plan, you can fight for your rank to be rewarded $HERO, and the rewards of each rank decrease from high to low. This mechanism is quite similar to the rankings in traditional games.
The feature is released on September 23rd, 2021, allows users to stake HERO NFTs to receive rewards in $STEP tokens. The higher the rarity of Heroes, the more skilled they are as Bounty Hunters.

The project has been invested and supported by many well-known Venture Capitals such as OKEx Blockdream Ventures from OKEx exchange, or Icetea Labs, a trusted incubator of blockchain businesses, advised Step Hero on strategic planning, fundraising, marketing, product development, and implementation.
Especially, Step Hero recently established a partnership with TK Ventures, a venture capital firm focusing exclusively on early-stage decentralized finance, NFT, and Web3 projects. Their mission is to become a great supporter of ambitious founders in blockchain who are building the foundation of the decentralized web. As a result, Step Hero can receive full marketing support from TK Venture’s homegrown media network with 250,000+ active members.
