$1.9 Million Game Character, the IMX Airdrop Update and NFT Rewards in Blankos - Play to Earn #87
Working in virtual worlds, gamification of DeFi, financial rewards in games, it's all coming together. Play to Earn is the future.
On a personal level I’ve had a very hectic week, but also in the gaming and NFT space things go fast. One game character for almost $2 million? Gaming companies giving away ETH to American gamers? Surviving means winning bitcoin? Playing and doing challenges earns you NFTs? Really, this is another great week for Play to Earn gaming. Then to imagine that even DeFi platforms are eyeing gaming as a way to onboard a new generation of consumers. We’re just getting started, but even blindfolded we can see that this is the future. — Robert Hoogendoorn
