Blockchain Gaming Platforms You Should Know
by Kamil S
Over the last year, the blockchain gaming industry has seen a growth spurt in both development and value that surpassed everyone’s expectations. The future looks even brighter as the market is expected to continue to grow at an unprecedented rate.
This article will give you a taste of what the best blockchain gaming platforms have to offer.
CryptoKitties is one of the earliest attempts to deploy blockchain technology for recreation, and one of the most popular ones. It is a blockchain game on Ethereum developed by Canadian studio Dapper Labs that allows players to purchase, collect, breed, and sell virtual cats, or CryptoKitties.
Moreover, players can engage in a variety of games in the virtual universe of CryptoKitties, earning rewards at the same time.
Axie Infinity is an NFT-based online video game developed by Vietnamese studio Sky Mavis, known for its in-game economy which uses Ethereum-based cryptocurrencies. Players of Axie Infinity collect and mint NFTs which represent axolotl-inspired digital pets known as Axies.
This blockchain game boasts over 200,000 players daily, with trades worth over 90,000 ETH. In addition, the ERC-20 tokens support staking, governance, payments, and other practices on the platform.
Decentraland is a 3D virtual world browser-based platform. Players can buy virtual plots of land as NFTs via MANA, Decentraland’s native ERC-20 token. The platform was opened to the public in February 2020 and is overseen by the non-profit Decentraland Foundation.
Equally important, Decentraland supports developers and their apps as well as enables users to trade parcels, estates, name rarities, and wearables. What’s more, players can transfer ownership and even allow other users to alter the condition of their assets.
The Sandbox is a virtual world where players can build, own, and monetize their gaming experiences in the Ethereum blockchain.
The ecosystem’s native token, $SAND, is used by players to trade assets on the network. The Sandbox has been gaining in value because it integrates multiple ways to earn, including renting virtual property, playing to earn, developing games, etc.
The Six Dragons
The Six Dragons is a feature-rich, fantasy Open World role-playing game inspired by some of the most iconic titles of the last two decades. The game features a 256 km2-long vibrant world with limitless adventures, epic fights, and the freedom to do anything you want. Players can explore endless lands, farm for valuable materials, craft more than 300 unique items, trade items with other players, and improve their arsenal using powerful enchants.
Almost all items in the game are decentralized, meaning that players truly own their in-game assets as they can freely trade them with other players, sell them for real-world value, and use them across different game universes.
The Six Dragons’ vision is to be a game where players are the ultimate protagonists as they constantly shape the game, but can also capture long-term value from their achievements.
Illuvium is an open-world exploration, NFT creature collector, and autobattler game built on the Ethereum blockchain, set to be released in 2022.
This game brings a play-to-earn graphically-rich sci-fi adventure that requires its players to conquer the wilderness to help the crash-landed crew flourish. On top of that, players will be able to earn crypto in ILV tokens as in-game rewards through playing, completing quests, performing special achievements, as well as win prizes in tournaments and events.
