Best Play-to-Earn Games with NFTs or Crypto

On this page we present you a list of the best play-to-earn games of this moment. Each of those games uses different mechanics to earn, while some will require an initial investment. Games with a play-to-earn mechanic allow users to create value through in-game activity. The reward can be a cryptocurrency, an NFT, or the value increase of an already purchased NFT. Overall, play-to-earn games do what traditional video games don’t: truly reward players for their efforts and time spent in a game.

The games mentioned below are in a random order. This page will be updated regularly to reflect trends, new developments and game releases. One golden rule here is that each of the games mentioned, is already playable. This list of play-to-earn games features titles that allow gamers to either earn cryptocurrencies or NFTs. Some play-to-earn games requires an initial investment to acquire some NFTs, for others it’s advised to do this.
