Metaverse virtual world and NFT based games go together, with the blockchain providing the perfect platform for users to play to earn, with real fiat money or cryptocurrency, for NFT proof of ownership from gaming - and we have ALL the information for you. Gamers can use an exchange like Binance to buy and store their cryptocurrency on the blockchain (an example of this would be Ethereum) and earn crypto by playing.
In the NFT blockchain space, games we like the look of so far include Illuvium and Wolf Game. While there are
established games like Axie Infinity with lots of features and a huge community, many upcoming NFT games are still being
developed and are reviewed on arrival in the reviews section.
NFT means (stands for) Non-Fungible Token. A non-fungible token is a unique, encoded identifier which cannot be exchanged for anything of the same identitiy - as by definition - it is unique. If you own the token, then you are the proven owner of the item assigned to it on the blockchain, such as a top NFT work of art in the form of a JPG, or an in-game item like a character or plot of land.
Note that if you screen dump a copy of a JPG assigned to an NFT which belongs to someone else, as identified on the blockchain, you are not the owner of the JPG, the person who completed the last blockchain transaction is still the owner and can therefore provide proof of ownership (with tokens) as a certificate of authenticity of the JPG if requested.
NFT's in gaming means that the player can actually own an item within the game being played. For example a player can have a special sword, and they own that sword.
At some point the owner may want to sell the NFT to another player for crypto. Additionally, some NFT's have smart contracts which also specify that the original person who minted the NFT (and in some cases other re-sellers) can profit a percentage of any onward sales made off the NFT.
There are a number of free NFT games available. NFT gaming is so new, that free games are being created constantly to attract new players. Be aware though that in certain games the game is free-to-play but the NFT's cost money.
Some notable free NFT games which are here or on their way are Guild of Guardians, Chainmonsters and My Master War, all of which state they are free to play.
A major irritation of ours is that the games use different networks for their coins. This irritation isn't the fault of the game as such, but it makes it (for us) a complete and total pain in the rear because it means you often have to have different coin types stored in your wallet (for example metamask) on different networks, and often getting these different currencies in there to start buying in-game NFTs, costs real money.
Wouldn't it be great if they all ran on one network with a single gaming coin? What are your thoughts - let us know.
