The “metaverse” refers to a virtual world that is created and maintained by computer systems. The Metaverse plays a key role in the blockchain games in the next wave to be available on the internet as it fascinates the world of virtual reality. Here are some popular crypto games in the metaverse:
- Axie Infinity: A collectables game where players can breed, raise, and battle creatures called Axies. Axies are NFTs (non-fungible tokens) that are unique and can be bought, sold, and traded. It has been called ‘a pyramid scheme that relies on cheap labour from countries like the Philippines to fuel its growth.’
- The Sandbox: A sandbox-style game that allows players to build, explore, and monetize their virtual worlds and experiences. Playing The Sandbox is free. Owning a land plot is not. Currently, the cheapest land plots on the secondary markets cost just under 2 ETH. A rental system in the future will allow landowners to rent out their plots to creators.
- Decentraland: A decentralized virtual world where users can create, experience, and monetize their content and applications. Users may buy virtual plots of land in the platform as NFTs via the MANA cryptocurrency, which uses the Ethereum blockchain. It was opened to the public in February 2020 and is overseen by the nonprofit Decentraland Foundation.
- Somnium Space: An open, decentralized platform for creating and experiencing virtual reality. Somnium is an inter-dimensional adventure game with elements of dark humour. On your long and fun journey to the unknown, you will explore colourful and strange worlds, play different kinds of mini-games, solve puzzles, steal girls’ hearts and embark on many different adventures.
These games offer unique and exciting experiences and opportunities for players to engage with cryptocurrency and blockchain technology. However, it’s important to remember that investing in crypto games and NFTs can also be risky, so it’s important to do your research and invest with caution.
