Top 5 Play-To-Earn NFT Games For Players & Crypto Investors

NFT games have come to stay and have recorded as many successes as possible. NFTs are now the new cool for digital investments. Even better, play-to-earn games allow players to earn income in the form of NFTs because they have proven to be the future of assets as they are encrypted, fully secured, and reliable. Most importantly, there are little or no theft risks. NFTs are indivisible, holding unique identities which are a fully encrypted and secure form of digital currency. That is why many people are using crypto, especially NFTs, to do trading these days.

NFT-based games are now very popular due to the fact they are a source of income for many people. In games, NFTs are in the form of in-game items, characters, weapons, and much more.

Playgrid has compiled a list (in no particular order) of five of these mind-blowing and lucrative games for our esteemed readers:

  1. Axie Infinity

Similar to the Pokémon series, Axie Infinity contains many lovable fantasy creatures, which are known as Axis. As a player, you can collect many of them, raise them, and use them in battle, and the exciting thing is that you can trade them as digital pets.

The game also launched a Defi coin called Katana which is based on the DEx exchange with the same name to help players to convert the earned token into Ethereum (ETH).

You can start by purchasing Axie Infinity’s (AXS) token on Binance and start to play the game.

Blockchain: Ethereum

Free-to-play: No

2. The Sandbox 3D

The Sandbox 3D is a voxel-based metaverse NFT game where players can buy, own, and build their gaming assets easily and do visual trading of assets. This game allows players to create their own game to play without any restrictions.

The SandBox 3D gives players an edge to manipulate and monetize voxel-based assets. Here you can get multiple tools to create visual animals in-game and sell them eventually at the marketplace. Some have argued that the game is a blockchain version of Minecraft.

Blockchain: Ethereum

Free-to-play: Yes

3. Guild of Guardians

Like many of its contemporaries, Guild of Guardians revolves around a fantasy theme: heroes, dungeons, and resources to earn. In this mobile RPG game, players can build a guild and fight monsters in dungeons to earn gems, eventually becoming the game’s currency. The game developers are focusing on making it a play-to-earn game, so players won’t have to purchase anything in-game. GoG is expected to launch later this year.

Blockchain: Ethereum

Free-to-play: Yes

4. Splinterlands

Splinterlands is a play-to-earn game that rewards tradable cards to its players with every win. Players first have to purchase a pack of cards unveiled by registering on a Steam account to play the game.

Having powerful cards from a pack of cards will help you boost your game, increasing your chances of winning the game. When you are familiar with the game rules and cards, you are good to fight in battle. If you have more than two powerful identical cards, you can sell them on the NFT market to have a million dollars in your account.

Blockchain: Hive

Free-to-play: Yes

5. God’s Unchained

Gods Unchained is a blockchain version of traditional card games as it has infused in it many NFT components. The game allows players to play PVP (Player vs. Player) games. Another exciting part is that the game chooses players depending on a ranking mode feature. Therefore, skills and strategy are very important here.

You will win the match when the energy of your opponent hits zero before your energy drains. With each win, you are going to earn rewards throughout the game. Every time you complete your experience level, you will get a pack of cards to decorate your game. These cards, as ERC-721 tokens, can be sold on the crypto marketplace.

Blockchain: Ethereum

Free-to-play: Yes
