What is NFT game?
NFT is a unique digital product on the blockchain. This feature makes NFT suitable for making avatars to represent characters or as in-game assets. Users can sell NFT in-game items to other players, or obtain digital currencies.
Players will need to keep the NFT in a compatible blockchain wallet. Unlike just collecting NFT crypto assets in a normal wallet, the NFT game will use NFT in the rules and processes of the players. The safety of NFT assets in this case is still guaranteed, unless the player is scammed.
Game developers create smart contracts that make up the rules by which NFTs are used. Smart contracts are self-executing pieces of code stored on a blockchain. For example, the game CryptoKitties has key contracts, the most famous being the geneScience contract that defines the mechanism for generating new cats at random.
Currently, NFT games are mainly deployed on the blockchain platform of Ethereum and Binance Smart Chain (BSC). Some games offer combat experiences using collectible characters like CryptoBlades and Axie Infinity, others use collectible cards like Sorare.
Why NFT games become a new trend?
The development of blockchain technology, the popularity of cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, or the birth of DeFi decentralized financial platforms are the reasons why many NFT game projects previously are just ideas now. could have been realized.
Previously, games were simply entertainment, but NFT games create real value for players, which can become a new source of income under the “play to earn” model.
Recently, many NFT works have been traded at high prices; this also creates an incentive to enter the world of NFT gaming, although the initial cost may not be small.
In addition, the Covid-19 pandemic has made more people interested in forms of making money online (MMO), just in time for the development of NFT games.
