Blockchain gaming maintains popularity among the community

Play-to-earn gaming is having a good moment, relative to the rest of the web3 world. But token and in-game NFT prices are down. So now might be the perfect time to join a project and become part of their future.

The world of web3 may be through a bumpy period, but gamers still want to game. Looking at the seven-day user numbers in DappRadar’s ranking pages, we can see that participation is still high.

DappRadar’s game rankings

Looking at a token’s past performance is not the best method for judging whether or not to buy it in the hope of appreciation in the future. Choosing a project you think will stand the test of time is a much better option when you’re deciding where to put your resources. 

To get an idea of which games will perform well in the future, you can sign up to DappRadar PRO to read our in-depth Play-to-Earn gaming guide.

Remember, when the hype dies down and the true believers are the only ones left, it’s the best product that will still be standing. It’s important to separate the noise from the facts. 

So in this list, we’ve taken the games which have the highest user numbers and which we think have a good chance of thriving in future.

Alien Worlds

Alien Worlds just released a new series of missions and NFTs to make its social metaverse even more interactive. If the blockchain world is crumbling at the moment, no one told these game developers.

Fans are still flocking to play inside this virtual world built on the WAX blockchain. Alien Worlds has six zones, each with 500 plots of land. 

Players can earn the in-game token Trillium (TLM) in various ways. Taking profit from the land you own is one way. Staking, trading and mining are other methods to turn your time into cash.

Farmers World

In Farmers World, players use energy and tools to acquire a variety of resources. Whether it’s wood, food, gold or animals, all of them can be sold on secondary markets for Farmers World Wood. Holders of this can turn that into real money.

Back in February 2022, it cost around $1,500 to $2,000 to get started as a gold miner in Farmers World. Just to buy a mining excavator, a user would need to shell out $1,600. Now, you can pick up one for less than $1.

Price drops are bad news for some. But for anyone looking to enter a market that could recover in a few years, now might be the time to get involved. In-game currency FWW has dropped 96.8% from its ATH. If you believe in the project, now’s the time to start playing.

Splinterlands

With more than 137,000 unique active wallets interacting with Splinterlands in the past 24 hour period, the game can clearly still draw in the crowds. It’s the premier collectible trading card game in web3.

Based on the Hive and WAX networks, Splinterlands’ recent validator node license sale sold out in 11 minutes. And the platform regularly sits in the top five of DappRadar’s games rankings across all blockchains.

Splinterlands’ SPS token is down 94.6% from its July 2021 high of $1.07. But with the huge following the game has managed to maintain, now could be the right time to join in and start playing.

Upland

Upland is one of the leading blockchain metaverse platforms in which players can work, create and earn. With nearly 250,000 unique active wallets interacting with the dapp over the past 30 days, the community is still more than big enough to sustain a viable economy.

The Upland virtual world is mapped to real-world locations, all of them in the US. Within the game, you can buy, upgrade and sell NFT properties. In time, you can turn these into in-game businesses from which you can earn a real income.

What is Upland?

The UPX token, which launched in 2019, has been through ups and downs in its lifetime. But with so many people still playing the game, things are well-placed for a long future.

Axie Infinity

Axie Infinity’s position at the top of the play-to-earn pile has been troubled this year. The record-breaking hack dented users’ confidence. And problems with the in-game economy contributed to a fall in NFT and coin prices.

Things have improved since then. Axie Infinity recently sold several lands for over 130 ETH each and it still draws in plenty of players on a monthly basis. In the past 30 days alone, over 770,000 unique active wallets connected to the dapp.

The in-game currency, AXS, is 91% off its all-time high of $164.90. So even though each coin is still not in the bargain basement, they’re far more affordable than they were. Added to this, buying the required three Axies to play the game is now much more affordable. You can now buy a set for less than $10.
