What are DeFi games & which are the most popular DeFi games

DeFi gaming or gaming on decentralized finance platforms is gaining traction. A few platforms have over hundreds of thousands of monthly active users. Simultaneously, DeFi gaming is also facilitating adoption of DeFi platforms like Ethereum. 

What are DeFi games? 

Decentralized finance (DeFi) games are enabling a shift towards play-to-earn model. Such games represent objects as non-fungible tokens (NFTs). From ammunition to costumes, things inside the game’s universe can be traded as NFTs. In some situations, the earned rewards can be sold to collect a crypto asset. 

The other distinction of decentralised protocol gaming is use of public blockchain for storing data. Users’ rewards and collectibles are stored in the distributed ledger for establishing a proof of ownership.

The rewards earned by gamers are still available even when the gaming platform is down due to technical snags. Games can also have native crypto tokens. Such tokens can be moved without any intermediary or centralized authority. Staking is an option that enables gamers to earn interest on their holdings or use the crypto token to make in-game purchases. 

Nearly every DeFi game can be downloaded for free. Post downloading, the user may need to buy initial avatars and costumes using the native crypto. The gamer needs a crypto wallet to secure a reward. For example, a DeFi game that runs on the Ethereum’s blockchain is likely to work best with MetaMask wallet
