Play-to-Earn games have been a success in the blockchain gaming industry. Players are rewarded for greater success, attracting more new players, and the cycle continues.
During the crypto winter, these games witnessed a downward trend, with some witnessing sharp falls in token prices. However, with the broad crypto market rallies, the tokens have resumed growth.
We have brought you a list of the top 5 play-to-earn racing games you can play to make some passive income with lots of fun. We have excluded games like Sandbox and Splinterlands because they closely resemble Decentraland and Gods Unchained, respectively.
5 Top Play-to-Earn (P2E) Games
Decentraland is a virtual world where you can play to earn its cryptocurrency called MANA. This can be earned in a number of ways, such as:
- buying and selling NFTs
- playing Ethermon
- playing Wonderquest
- virtual casinos
- build inside Decentraland
- staking MANA
The game is free to play and has unlimited features. However, the price of land is expensive, with a floor price of $1270 or 0.7 ETH at the time of writing this article.
2. Gods Unchained
Though it is just a card trading play-to-earn game, Gods Unchained has reached nearly 500k active players holding a total asset pool of $52 million. Gods Unchained has a weekly active player count of around 80k players, as per Ancient8, a metaverse research agency. Players can buy and sell NFTs to earn money. Other ways include competing matches and staking.
The game is free to play and has very few barriers. Its lowest-priced NFT costs just $14, as per Coin Gecko. However, deck-building will only attract a minority of gamers.
3. Alien Worlds
Alien Worlds is a blockchain game based on Ethereum and BNB. On average, the game has about 230-240k active miners(players) every hour. To make money in the game, players need to land on planets and mine for NFTs which is a real-world mint. You will start with a shovel(an NFT).
As the game progresses, you will find multiple tools. These tools, which are also NFTs, can be used to mine for rewards.
Unlike Decentraland and its close cousin, Sandbox, the game Alien Worlds has little to no entry barrier. However, it is too simple to attract seasoned gamers.
4. Axie Infinity
Once the most popular play-to-earn game, Axie Infinity has struggled to retain players post its $600+ million hack, which was led by a group of North Korean hackers. However, the game is still as much exciting, if not more. Still, the game has around 400k active players per month.
In the game, a player has to raise aliens called Axies, which are NFTs. Three Axies are needed to start the game.
Ways of earning cryptocurrencies in the game are:
- Axie battles, PVP
- buying lunacia land
The game is a little expensive for beginners. However, you can loan Axies from others to start the game. This feature is called an Axie Scholarship.
It is a finance-oriented play-to-earn game where you can earn by using different investment strategies. Players need to play various games like Hodl play or Defi twist to earn cryptocurrencies in the game. Though the game is still basic, it teaches various investment and trading strategies and gives a safer testing environment for learning and practicing trade strategies.
