Play-to-Earn

This article is updated on a regular basis to include all the latest and relevant blockchain game tokens.

Thanks to blockchain technology and the tokenization of game assets, game designers are now capable of assigning a certain asset to a certain player. With the tokens for these items in their wallet, players use, sell or trade any way they want. The more time they spend in a game, the more valuable their acquired resources might become. 

In essence, a play-to-earn game is distributed freely, just like a free-to-play game. However, in the current blockchain gaming market, there are plenty of games that require an initial investment. In addition, there are games that are available freely, but basically require users to invest before they are really capable of generating value. 

The purest form of the play-to-earn business model allows every player to experience the full game and generate value by doing so. The more time is invested, the more value can be created. Every player is an integral part of the open in-game economy, selling and buying items to their own likening. 

In this article, we will introduce readers to the top blockchain game tokens that also have a purpose within the DeFi ecosystem allowing holders to earn. Each token within this article links out to a more in-depth article on that specific token explaining the basics of the token, highlighting the most popular trading pairs and price moves to-date.

Axie Infinity Shards – AXS 

Inspired by popular games like Pokémon and Tamagotchi, Axie Infinity allows players to collect, breed, raise, battle, and trade token-based creatures known as Axies.

These Axies can be entered into 3v3 battles, with the winning team earning more experience points that are used to level up an Axie’s stats or evolve their body parts. These Axies can breed together to produce new and unique offspring, which can be used or sold on the Axie marketplace. 

The Axie Infinity ecosystem also has its own unique governance token, known as Axie Infinity Shards (AXS). These are used to participate in key governance votes and will give holders a say in how funds in the Axie Community Treasury are spent. Read more…

Decentraland Token – MANA 

Decentraland (MANA) defines itself as a virtual reality platform powered by the Ethereum blockchain that allows users to create, experience, and monetize content and applications.

The virtual world launched its closed beta in 2019 and opened to the public in February 2020. Since then, users have created a wide range of experiences on their parcels of LAND, including interactive games, sprawling 3D scenes, and a variety of other interactive experiences.

Decentraland uses two tokens: MANA and LAND. MANA is the native ERC-20 token, and a percentage of the MANA gets burned every time someone purchases an NFT. This can either be virtual land, digital clothing for your avatar, or interactive installations sold as an NFT. Read more…
