The Non-Fungible Token wave has taken the crypto ecosystem by storm, and not just crypto ecosystem, the whole financial and collectible market has been revamped by the entry of the NFTs as it brings together multiple industries together. The latest trend in the NFT markets is around Play to Earn Games (P2E) which combines the best of the video gaming industry with cryptocurrencies and NFTs. It allows traders to play games not just for fun, but also earn in-game tokens and give players a chance to win rare collectibles that can be exchanged and traded in the real-world.
There are hundreds of new NFT projects hitting the market, but very few make it to the top due to lack of core values. However, we are gonna look at the top-3 NFT projects of today that have the potential to become behemoths of the industry tomorrow.
Mech Master, a new coming of age P2E NFT gaming platform that has brought the first ever strategic turn-based RPG game where players are open to build their own territory with future technologies and protect their homeland. In the Mech Master metaverse, players are challenged to collect giant fighting machines and futuristic weapons to save the world. Being an experienced pilot in Augmented Reality, you set yourself apart from other players with unique tactics and sharp decision making skills. Being a blockchain game in sci-fi setting, not only combat arenas will earn gamers reward, but you can also profit from battles by earning $Mech tokens.
There will be a total of seven races, eight elements, combined with hundreds of pilots, thousands of pieces of equipment as the possibilities are endless. Mech Master has one of the most enormous libraries of assets that players can trade around to build the strongest Mecha lineup. Almost every item in the game is created by players, from materials found by players. There are also many different ways that players can collect in-game items (mechas, pilots, equipment, land…) like rolling the gacha, taking part in auctions for super rare items, earning very special 3D items with top-notch art/design from event rewards.
The project is among the finest in the P2E NFT arena, gaining rave reviews with one of a kind gameplay and great earning opportunities. It has the potential to be among the top-3projects by market value given its great tokenomics and engrossing gameplay.
Gods Unchained is another P2E NFT game in the card trading gaming genre. Players can accumulate different cards by purchasing them from other players or winning Player Vs Player matchups where the quality of cards and the gaming skill of players often determine the winner. Notably, more emphasis is being placed on skills and strategy. This is because the game utilizes a ranked game mode where players with the same ratings are matched.
Players should win matches in the gameplay against the opponent and aim to bring their value to zero before the end of the match. For every win, you receive experience points. As soon as the experience bar is filled up, you will move to the next rating or level and receive a new pack of cards to add to the collection. Each card is backed by an ERC-721 token. Therefore, you can trade them on the platform’s native marketplace or the open market. Those opting to sell cards within the game ecosystem will receive the platform’s native token, GODS, as payment. It is worth noting that the GODS token has not been officially launched at the time of writing this guide. Be sure to confirm that the development team has released GODS tokens to the crypto market before proceeding to purchase or receive any token marketed as GODS tokens.
The Sandbox 3D
The Sandbox is a voxel-based gaming metaverse and one of the most active NFT gaming platforms where players can build and trade virtual assets. In this game, players can manipulate and monetize voxel assets. Think of it as the blockchain iteration of popular gaming titles like Minecraft and Roblox. The platforms offer the tools to create and animate objects and subsequently sell them on marketplaces. Additionally, users can create and play custom games on the platform.
Sandbox 3D has introduced SAND, an ERC-20 token, as the native token of the metaverse. With this, players can purchase in-game items on the platform’s marketplace. There is also LAND, which are NFT tokens and by far some of the most valuable and sought after assets in the Sandbox game. A record of $8.5 million in LAND sales was concluded in April alone.
The P2E NFT market is thriving at the moment with many projects raising millions of dollars with the aim to become the next billion dollar projects. While all the above mentioned projects are making a name for themselves, Mech Master is something one must look out for.
