What are and how do the best blockchain games work, according to the different Play-to-Earn, Market Cap, UAW (Unique Active Wallet) rankings? Here is a mirror.
The best blockchain games for Market Cap: leading the way is The Sandbox
According to Chainplay, the ranking of the best blockchain games for market cap has the popular games of The Sandbox, Decentraland, and Axie Infinity on the podium.
In fact, at the time of writing, the market capitalization of these blockchain-based games are $682 million for The Sandbox, $655 million for Decentraland, and $572 million for Axie Infinity, respectively.
These games became so popular both because they were among the first to enter the crypto world and because they rode the wave of the metaverse.
Specifically, The Sandbox is a dynamic virtual world with user-generated creations, such as NFTs, avatars, virtual goods and games, using VoxEdit and Maker games. Here, there is opportunity to monetize through NFTs by trading on the Sandbox Marketplace. The blockchain game’s native crypto by market cap is SAND, an ERC-20 token, and that is Ethereum based.
The Sandbox’s popularity has captured well-known brands in the real world, such as fashion house Gucci, which purchased a LAND and also launched the Gucci Vault Land event. Also coming on board the metaverse on blockchain was Playboy adult magazine, which created its own virtual Metamansion space.
Not only that, many famous artists of the caliber of Snoop Dogg and Paris Hilton got on board as well. The former has created his own personal area where he can meet his fans, while the latter has created Parisland, a virtual meeting place for users to find their soul mates.
The games on Decentraland (MANA) and Axie Infinity (AXS)
Decentraland also offers a blockchain-based game model similar to The Sandbox, riding the metaverse, with its ERC-20 token native MANA.
Axie Infinity, on the other hand, in addition to the LAND NFTs like its predecessors, offers players the ability to obtain, collect, breed, and have battles by leveling up, funny digital Polémon-like creatures, the Axies.
Such Axies populate the fantasy world of Lunacia and share environments called Terrarium, to win in-game money. Again, the native ERC-20 token is AXS.
Recently, Axie Infinity (AXS) achieved an extraordinary result, considered the highest earning token of the Binance Launchpad.
Blockchain games: ranking by Play-to-Earn sees Galaxy Fight Club in the lead
If we look at the ranking of the best blockchain games for Play-to-Earn, Galaxy Fight Club is at the top, followed by Axie Infinity and Champions Tactics.
Galaxy Fight Club is a play-to-earn game using the Ethereum and Polygon blockchain, in which players can buy and collect NFTs to fight and earn crypto rewards.
Such NFTs are the game’s avatar characters, called “GFTs” (Galactic Fight Tokens), each with specific characteristics and abilities so as to be unique and valuable.
Each GFT can also be customized by equipping different weapons, armor and accessories, purchased from the game’s marketplace. Battles take place in an arena where GFTs compete in one-on-one fights, while also participating in tournament challenges that promise to advance in rankings and earn greater rewards.
The specialty of Galaxy Fight Club is to be cross-IP PVP, meaning that it allows the user to fight as any NFT, from Bored Ape or CyberKongz, as long as you have those NFTs in your wallet. Sort of like Smash Bros in the NFT universe.
Players can assemble a team of mythical champions, create exciting tactical battles against other players, and discover the legends of the dark and mystical world of Grimoria.
Champions are magical playable figurines in the dark world of Grimoria. Each of them is a living relic, an intricate embodiment of Grimoria’s history.
Each Champion has a unique appearance and abilities. To play and overcome your opponent, you must assemble a team of three of them and strategically use their abilities based on the opponent’s deployment and actions.
