Blockchain games have a way of moving up and down the charts week in and week out. The games get updated with every blink of an eye, so it’s important to keep track of what’s trending as of late. Don’t worry though, as we have just the list prepared for you. Here are the top 10 blockchain games of the week!
Coming in at the top of the list with a whopping 573,297 users last week is MiningNetwork. MiningNetwork is an NFT-based mining game that blends free-to-play and play-to-earn features into its ecosystem, allowing users to earn rewards while playing. Built on the Wax blockchain, MiningNetwork awards each new user with a free NFT after registration.
A standout feature about this game is that the number of game features extracted does not equal the number of tokens supplied. What this means is that as the number of players increases, the game resources would increase too. This in turn would decrease the amount of inflation by keeping the value of the tokens at a stable price. This is a completely new economic model that has never been employed before!
Formerly known as Steem Monsters, Splinterlands, operating on the Hive blockchain is currently the second most played game of the week with 369,333 users. It is a strategic NFT digital card game with a design resembling Pokemon and Hearthstone.
Splinterlands has over 500+ cards in the game along with a very busy marketplace. Players can buy, sell or trade their cards here for either other cryptocurrencies or USD (United States Dollars). The game has its own in-game currency called Dark Energy Crystals (DEC). Splinterlands is unique in that the user’s balance and NFTs are tied to their Metamask wallets rather than their gaming accounts. This allows players to withdraw and sell their NFTs at any given time on third-party marketplaces.
Coming in at number 3 is Alien worlds, an NFT Metaverse where you play with distinctive characters. Based on the Ethereum, Wax and Binance Smart Chain, Alien Worlds claims to be one the most popular P2E metaverses bringing in around 300,000 users this week.
The game makes use of Trillium (TLM), a cryptocurrency that motivates users to play games and maybe staked to allow players to participate in governance. The main subject of the game is that players get to discover new planets. Here they can start mining the land to earn TLM. What makes the game unique is the fact that it started with a mixture of a fully tokenized ecosystem, along with the perfect blend of blockchain knowledge and game development expertise. As a result, it is one of the most comprehensive metaverse worlds in terms of aesthetics.
Launched on August 1st 2021 by G.JIT Japan, Farmers World is based around a farm city discovered by Portuguese explorers. The game takes place on South American soil. Farmers World is the first farming game to be released on the NFT platform. Running on the Wax blockchain, Farmers World recorded a total of 200,000 users this week.
Players get to choose tools suitable for themselves, allowing them to buy land and exploit a number of sources. Players can mine food, gold or wood. These are real tokens that can either be used to play the game or they can be sold for a profit on the marketplace. But to get started with mining, players are required to either craft or purchase tools from the decentralised marketplace. These tools include an axe, a fishing rod and a mining machine.
Upland, being of the first games to introduce in-game ownership allows users to purchase properties based on the real-world map. However, it is currently limited to just a few states of the USA. Upland is backed by the EOS blockchain and has brought in 134,000 users this week. Players are rewarded in the form of the in-game currency UPX.
Upland gives full rights to the ownership of the digital assets which is made possible by blockchain technology. Through gamified experiences, upland aims to bridge the gap between the game world and the real world. They hope to reach this goal by establishing a sound economy and by providing a decentralised market where stakeholders can interact with each other with ease. Initially, Upland distributes land ownerships to players by gamified experiences.
MOBOX: NFT Farmer
There are plenty of ways to earn with MOBOX NFT Farmer, which is one of the main reasons that it’s so popular. It is certainly worth exploring it as the world of traditional finance seems to transition into the crypto world. What’s interesting about MOBOX is that its open system allows users to use the same NFTs across multiple platforms and games which opens up the opportunity for many other play-to-earn games.
Sunflower Land is one of the, if not the most popular NFT game on the Polygon network. The game, much like some others on this list, also focuses primarily on farming. Players can grow in-game farms and earn $SFF from doing so. Moreover, Seeds are one of the main NFTs in the game. They can be bought cheap at an early stage and sold for much more after being grown.
This is one of the oldest blockchain-based games on this list, having familiarities with Tetris. The game is an NFT-game equivalent of Tetris, which is why it still has a loyal fanbase. However, the game has been declining rapidly in user base, dropping from 4th position last week to 8th at the moment.
Pegaxy is also one of the most popular titles on the Polygon network. The game has been seeing quite a growth over the past few weeks due to its release on mobile devices. The game mainly focuses on 3D horse racing matches, where the Pega horses are the core NFT assets in the game.
Gameta is one of those projects that consist of multiple games under one roof. The platform has several games under its belt, and players can earn gems by playing each one of these games. Every time a level is completed, players get gems and also NFT if they’re lucky.
