Here are 3 P2E games that can help you increase your income

Play-to-Earn (P2E) games are blockchain-based video games that can help players earn crypto or NFT as they progress through the game. Players can earn rewards by dedicating time to level up, completing quests and challenges, and improving their characters. They also generate revenue on their land that other gamers pay to use or by matching against others in tournaments.

P2E games sell their game accessories as NFTs. They sell everything in-game, like land, houses, rooms, buildings, weapons, characters, and pets. There are three options for claiming ownership of these digital assets. Players can either breed or create new characters, buy NFTs on the native platform/NFT marketplaces, or progress through the game and earn new items. 

Regardless of how these items have been obtained, the user completely owns them. The gamer can then sell or distribute the NFT and profit from the virtual trade in real money.

By leveraging blockchain and NFT technology, P2E games have created a new and exciting order where players take up more critical roles and become a part of the gaming economy. Going into 2023, there are indications that the gaming market will continue to expand. According to a Mordor Intelligence report, the global NFT gaming market is predicted to grow at a CAGR of 32.56% between 2022 and 2027.

Here are 3 P2E games that can help you increase your income

Splinterlands is an online collectible card P2E game built on the Hive blockchain. The game is played as a one-on-one battle between monster squads – players buy and collect cards to compete and win against other players. 

Players can build a collection of cards, each with its stats and features that make them more or less powerful. The characteristics listed on the cards are; Health, Speed, Attack, Armor, Abilities, etc. The P2E game’s native currency is $DEC

Another way collectors make money in the game is by selling their game cards on online marketplaces like OpenSea. If they win a rare card, it may be valuable to another player.

Gods Unchained


This is a free-to-play online trading card game. It describes itself with the tagline, “If you can’t sell your items, you don’t own them.” Gods Unchained provides gamers complete control over their in-game items. 

On the platform, gamers can gather rare cards, construct a deck, and sell them to other players. Rare cards have a real-world worth since they can be sold for $GODS, the native game token, which can then be converted to fiat. Players can also earn the $GODS token, a payment system in the game. This model incentivizes participants to play since they have complete ownership of the valuable assets they accumulate over time.

Axie Infinity 

Axie Infinity is an Ethereum-blockchain-based game in which players can not only gather NFT-based digital pets known as axies, but also breed them. These digital pets (Axies), can also be traded on prominent NFT marketplaces, with prices varying according to each axie’s quality, rarity, and utility. Since each axie has its genetic imprint, every axie has its own strengths and weaknesses, which are passed on to its offspring.

Players can earn the game’s native token, $AXS, an ERC-20 governance token for the Axie Universe. Holders of the token can earn rewards by staking their tokens, playing the game, and voting in critical governance elections.
