In recent years, blockchain-based games have become quite popular among everyday gamers which looking at the benefits they offer, is not surprising.
Blockchain games are mostly built on the play-to-earn (P2E) model, allowing players to monetize their gaming hours. What’s better than playing your favorite video game and earning money at the same time? We have talked in detail about the play-to-earn (P2E) model in our “X to Earn: Let’s PLAY!” article. Check it out now to learn more about the model and how you can benefit from it.
This concept is known as GameFi which refers to a combination of video games and decentralized finance (DeFi). The DeFi part refers to the crypto token or other types of blockchain-based assets the game will be offering you.
Since all these assets reside on a blockchain network, you will be enjoying the decentralized, transparent, and open nature of this technology. In other words, you will be able to see the history and all activities of your game but more importantly, stay the true owner of your in-game assets.
In-game assets of a blockchain game are mostly in the form of Non-fungible Tokens or NFTs. Each NFT is unique in its own way, a trait that makes them valuable based on the level of rarity they possess.
This is probably the main factor behind the popularity of blockchain games. When you get your in-game assets in the form of NFTs, you will be able to easily trade them on open NFT marketplaces. You can sell your NFTs to make some money or buy other users’ NFTs to level up your game.
As mentioned above, your assets can have different values based on how rare they are. But what that really means?
Let’s consider in-game characters. Game creators design each character with specific features and powers. Some of these features are limited which makes it quite rare for a character to have them. Now, if you manage to get your hands on a character with rare features, not only you will have the upper hand in the game, but you will also be the owner of a rare and valuable NFT.
Now that we have a basic understanding of blockchain games and their benefits, let’s check out top blockchain games that come with their own cryptocurrency.
