Crypto gaming made easy

Imagine a world without games.

Life would be boring, right?

Games were an integral part of our lives growing up, from simple games like Tetris to major ones like Grand Theft Auto (GTA).

As we’ve gotten older, we’ve had to give up some of these things. The many demands of adulthood pushed gaming to the backseat in most of our lives.

But what if there was a way to bring back some of the excitement gaming brought us? What if there was a way to revive our love for gaming while getting paid for it?

Thanks to crypto, this is now possible.

Let us explain:

In 2021, crypto gaming platforms paid out over $300 million to gamers, and this is expected to rise in 2022. Crypto gaming platforms are relatively new, and they offer earning opportunities.

This is how crypto gaming works: when you play games and complete specific tasks, you are rewarded with tokens. These tokens are tradable assets you can withdraw into a wallet.

From your wallet, you can then swap the tokens into a local currency using crypto exchanges like Binance or Coinbase.

In addition, crypto gaming platforms also reward you with NFTs. You can read our beginner’s guide to get the full gist of NFTs.

How to earn NFTs from crypto gaming

Most crypto games use NFTs to represent in-game assets. In-game assets are items and properties that make the gaming experience more interesting. They include characters, objects, sound effects, maps and more.

Let’s assume that you unlock a special car in a racing game. You’ll be given an NFT that proves your ownership of the car. You can then decide to either continue using the car within the game or sell the NFT to someone else.

There is high demand for popular gaming NFTs, and you can make money from playing games and selling NFTs.

There are many crypto gaming platforms, and it can be confusing to find one that fits your earning needs. We’ll look at a few of the best based on popularity and chances of earning.
