As gamers, we should be excited about games built on the blockchain. Blockchain games often give players the potential to make money, simply by… well… playing the game! This is because they can safely and securely trade items with each other without having to use a “black market”. As many gamers know, attempting to buy or sell items outside of the agreed upon confines of a traditional game can come with consequences from developers, or leave you high and dry because the person you thought was trustworthy ended up scamming you — leaving you with nothing!
Let’s use Fortnite as an example. Fortnite is expected to make over a billion dollars this year. It’s mind-blowing considering it is a free-to-play game, and all in-game monetization is cosmetic. In Fortnite, if you have an incredibly rare emote, it’s technically owned by Epic Games. You could never use or sell the emote outside of Fortnite — and if you somehow did, Epic Games would probably bring down the ban hammer on your account.
But imagine if you could, without resorting to black markets, sell the incredibly rare Rock Out emote. You’d probably turn a small profit and Epic would also make a cut of your sale.
Blockchain gamers have exactly that ability. The ability to take items, cards, weapons, or whatever else they’ve obtained through gameplay, and sell them to other players. Let’s learn more about these games and see how it’s possible to make some money playing them without being an eSports star.
Here are a few titles we believe should be on everyone’s radar. The design, creativity, and uniqueness of each of these games are just a few of the reasons we’re excited about them.Gods Unchained
