Crypto-based games have become one of the increasingly popular ways for people to entertain themselves while earning cryptocurrencies at the same time, especially for those without the means or desire to mine cryptocurrencies.
Finbold has analyzed a variety of crypto gaming projects to find those that should be added to the to-do list for all cryptocurrency and gaming enthusiasts during January 2023.
Featuring non-fungible tokens (NFT) cards with real-world value, Gods Unchained (GODS) is an online free-to-play and play-to-earn blockchain trading card game. Users can compete, win, and collect cards to trade in the game’s marketplace.
On December 15, the game won two Polkastarter GAM3 Awards (dubbed the Grammys of the Web3 gaming industry), for Best Card Game and Best Strategy Game.
Recently launched Tamadoge (TAMA), a play-to-earn Dogecoin (DOGE), combines meme coins with a play-to-earn concept to provide a platform in which players can mint, breed, and battle their pets in the Tamaverse, as well as climb leaderboards and earn rewards.
According to the crypto analytics platform GenX Analytics, the game’s community is one of the strongest among those working with the NFT utility.
A metaverse play-to-earn experience, The Sandbox (SAND) is far from a newcomer to the field, having launched its alpha version on the Ethereum blockchain in November 2021. Players can construct and monetize games on their virtual property, as well as interact with other players’ projects in the game.
Furthermore, The Sandbox development team organizes competitions, raffles, and giveaways, in which players can earn valuable prizes and have fun, such as the recent holiday-themed Season’s Greetings reward series.
There are Splinterlands.
As another crypto-based fantasy card game, Splinterlands is referred to by its team as ‘the next generation of collectible card games.’ It is based on the Hive blockchain, and players compete against each other, rank on leaderboards, and collect Dark Energy Crystal tokens that can be exchanged.
