GameFi, aptly called the Play-to-Earn (P2E) , is currently the hottest trend in the blockchain space.

P2E is the idea of gaming in which players earn certain Crypto assets as they play.

The world saw a new adoption of the Blockchain into the gaming sector as it also allowed a merge between NFTs, Decentralized Finance, Web3, Crypto tokenomics and the Metaverse. While some P2E games have a high barrier of entry like Axie Infinity, some have low levels of entry like Bionic Owls.

Countries like Nigeria, South Africa, Ghana and Kenya are the highest crypto-adopted countries with an increase daily.
