The world of blockchain video games is growing by leaps and bounds, and it’s not just because of how promising they are in terms of security or theming.
I could affirm that the aspect that has shone the most in them has to do with the possibility of allowing players to earn money by playing, which is what we know as play to earn.
However, there are really diverse projects and types of games that exist that are created for:
También hay juegos prometedores similares a Axie Infinity como My DeFi Pet.
It is therefore normal that, faced with such a variety, you may ask yourself: Which is the best one to produce money and play?
They are not necessarily ranked, so the first is not the best, nor the fifth the worst. But, I assure you that you will have a broader perspective of the most promising and profitable games at the moment.
So, insert your coin because we’re going to hit it!
Top 5 Blockchain or NFT video games
1. Axie Infinity
Axie Infinity is a game built on the Ethereum network that I’m sure you’ve heard multiple times and must be inside the podium of the best games to earn money.
It was launched in 2018 by Sky Mavis. However, it is since 2020 that its profitability is absolute, as you use creatures called axies to win battles or reproduce them to build more equipment that you can share.
As a result of the above, you get SLP or Small Love Potion, which can be exchanged for native Ethereum tokens and, in the end, real money.
You can also trade axies on the market with other players, as each axie is a unique NFT that has strengths and weaknesses depending on how it was bred.
The game also allows players to earn Axie Infinity Shards (AXS), the game’s governance token that grants the right to vote on decisions.

If you are a lover of sports and specifically soccer, you might love this game. It was developed on the Ethereum blockchain by Nicolas Julia and Adrien Montfort in 2018 and officially launched in 2019.
In it, you can become a coach who can build his own team of five soccer players with the Sorare platform cards.
Therefore, you must collect digital cards from different players and fight against other “trainers”.
The cool thing about these cards is that they are officially licensed by the Major League Players Association, Belgian Jupiler Pro League, K League and other leagues and clubs such as Real Madrid.
For this reason, the cards are officially branded with the photos and names of the season’s players.
Each card can be classified as rare, super rare and unique according to the performance of your players on the real-world soccer field. The important thing about all this is that you can increase your income in two ways:
- Winning prizes for beating other trainers.
- When you get a card, you get full ownership of it, so you can sell them to other players, getting cryptos in exchange.
3. The SandBox
If you’re more into games like Minecraft that are based on an open-world role-playing game, The Sandbox is ideal for you.
The Sandbox is a game that takes place in a virtual world where players can build and monetize their games on the Ethereum blockchain.
It was created by Pixowl and bought by Animoca in 2018. In the same year, it won the “blockchain gamer award”. By the end of 2019, all virtual pre-sale units of LAND were sold out in 4 hours.
To play, you must buy LAND which is a piece of land on which you can create your games and other NFT. It is basically like if, in a building under construction, you buy an apartment to live there.
Once you do this, the way you can earn money and value the land you bought is through your activity. To do this, the platform gives you two opportunities:
- Create and sell NFT in your marketplace.
- Design and monetize games using your Game Maker tool. These games will be placed on land owned by players.
As a reward for the above, you can have SAND which is the in game currency that you can later exchange for cryptos.
Certainly, everyone can earn something while interacting with other people through purchases and sales or by playing the same games that users develop.
4. Gods Unchained
If you know, have played and enjoyed “Magic: The Gathering Arena“, the legendary collectible card game, this is probably the game for you.
From the supervision of the former director of Magic, Chris Clay and development by the Australian project “Immutable”, this game was officially released in 2019.
Previously, in 2018, it had a private beta that, subsequent to funding rounds that raised around more than $15 million, in 2019 could be opened to the public.
It has quite interesting mechanics that are common to all card games such as deck building, fighting against players and tactical options.
However, it has a special feature: you can obtain GODS, the token of the game, by winning battles, card packs or when you level up. The “GODS” are ERC-20 tokens used as premium currency that enable you to:
- Create a high-quality NFT, that is, merge cards from the set that can then be exchanged for cryptos.
- Buy and sell in-game.
- Vote on proposals that influence the fate of the game.
The key point here is to build NFTs, which you can sell for incredible prices on different NFT platforms.
CryptoKitties was one of the first games based on blockchain technology that could be visualized.
Powered by Dapper Labs, the creator of NBA Top Shot, it was launched in November 2017 on the Ethereum blockchain.
In this sense, the way you can earn money is by collecting CryptoKitties and creating a whole collection of these rather adorable and curious virtual kitties.
With CryptoKitties, in KittyVerse, you can participate in fights to show others who has the best cat or perform analytical puzzles that won’t let you get bored.
Similarly, you can breed two kittens together to unlock rare attributes.
Of course, to do this it is essential that you first approach the platform marketplace or major NFT marketplaces such as Open Sea.
It is absolutely certain that you will find CryptoKitties to start playing with, since another fundamental way to get cryptos is by buying and selling these NFTs.
