The NFT market is a rather modest field when its appeal is limited to simple gaming. You buy an item and expect it to be worth more in the future, but it lacks the interactivity between the player and the game.
2021 can be said to be a "Welcome to the World of Play To Earn" year because it has opened up a wave of NFT gaming trends with a lot of positive information surrounding it also created many record numbers in the crypto market.
Leading the way for deeper game interaction is the Axies project and following many other NFT projects participating in the "play2earn" game that has brought the entire Ethereum network to life. Since then, many new projects have begun to expand across other Chains to optimise costs and bring more interesting experiences.
What Is Play2Earn?
Play-To-Earn is a combination of two actions Play & Earn, which means both playing games and earning money. Gaming has been around since the 1970s, each phase has a face of innovation & in 2021, a unique combination of NFT and traditional gaming takes place, giving users (both crypto & non-crypto) a unique experience. new play to earn experience.
Play to Earn has been around for a long time, for many 8x, 9x generation gamers, the game Silk Road is a good example, you can transform into simulation characters, fight & raise account rank, buy and sell weapons, participate in hunting prizes, etc. If you can "plow" to become a terrible level, many powerful weapons can be sold to make money.
What Is Different About Play2Earn In Crypto 2021?
Thanks to blockchain technology and the advantages of the Crypto market, the Play to Earn model has now been improved, specifically:
Gaming operators have incorporated NFT in their protocol.
Improve ownership of in-game assets for users.
Players are creating value for other players and developers, in return they are rewarded with in-game assets (native tokens/NFTs).
NFT and Play to Earn are very hot topics in recent times and that is also one of the reasons why transactions on the Ethereum network have become active again.
Gas Used By Smart Contract
As you can see in the smart contracts on Ethereum that use the most Gas in the past 30 days, Top 1 and Top5 belong to Opensea- The largest NFT Marketplace platform on the market today, Top 4 belongs to Ronin Bridge by Axie Infinity.
Specifically, for Opensea, which protocol currently maintains GAS consumption at $5-6M and shows no signs of cooling down.
Similar to Ronin Bridge of Axies, when the amount of GAS consumed also peaked and showed no sign of stopping.
