Crypto games are gaining in importance. This is reflected by the fact that as many as five representatives of this segment, at the time of writing this text, are in the top 100 projects with the highest market capitalization. Let’s have a look at them!
Decentraland is a virtual real estate world where users can buy and sell land located in it. Anything that a player owns can be traded in the game. NFT tokens are also gaining importance in Decentraland. Many global brands and characters also appear there. It was in Decentraland that the most talked about virtual music festival to date took place.
Axie Infinity (AXS)
Axie Infinity is a game inspired by Pokemon. Players have pets called Axies, which are also NFTs. They are put up for duels. To start the game you need to buy at least three characters. On the other hand, when you already participate in the game, you can create such characters yourself and even profit from their regular sale.
The Sandbox (SAND)
Learning basic laws of physics and principles of nature can be really fun. This proves The Sandbox, in which we begin to build our own world, limited only by the player’s imagination. This is the space in which NFT tokens easily find themselves. The Sandbox allows players to trade. The basis of its functioning, as in Decentraland, is a virtual property owned by the player.
Gala operates on slightly different principles than the competitors described above. First of all, Gala is not one game, but a potential whole series of them, powered by a single token. At least such are the assumptions of the project, because at the moment the portfolio of Gala Games is Town Star, and a collectible series of NFT – VOX. The vision of Gala Games is based on the fact of trading items that can be purchased with a native token, connecting the entire ecosystem of the manufacturer.
An interesting gaming representative is the Enjin Coin, which currently operates on completely separate principles from those described above. First of all, it is not a coin, assigned to a specific game, but nevertheless, some of its resources can become tokens locked in a selected ecosystem. Enjin is a bridge for different metaverses and games, and its purpose is to support the instant exchange of assets accumulated in one game, for ones that correspond to another. Although it is not a typical blockchain game, it is impossible to omit Enjin from our overview.
Play to Earn (P2E) concept paves new paths
The games and coins listed above strongly support the metaverse space that is gaining popularity. This, in turn, is increasingly based on the Play to Earn concept, which allows you to earn real and often substantial money. Some of the games require an initial contribution, while others can be approached empty-handed. The profits that can be made seem to have no limits. All this makes blockchain in the world of gaming takes on a completely different meaning than it had so far.
