The monumental rise of Axie Infinity in 2021 has ushered in a new era of gaming in the form of blockchain integrated games. The average gamer can now monetize their playing time and the value they bring to a game via in-game rewards and collectibles in the form of NFTs or financially through cryptocurrencies. As these NFT-based games continue to grow in popularity, the value of NFT in-game assets will also continue to increase, incentivizing active engagement with the game in exchange for more attractive rewards. With the unique synergy that the play-to-earn model offers for both game developers and gamers, the explosive success of NFT games including My DeFi Pet, Crypto Blades, Alien Worlds and many more should come as no surprise. Even giants in the gaming industry such as Sega have expressed interest in the incorporation of NFTs in upcoming titles, and with Ubisoft already integrating NFTs in one of its top sellers, Ghost Recon Breakpoint. Rapid innovation which sees gaming developers rushing to dive into the metaverse indicates that the NFT gaming space is poised for a monumental year in 2022.
