My motivation:

Ever since the 80s gamers have been spending quarters in the arcade or buying full games for their consoles. In recent years games that are seemingly free, have become even bigger cash-cows. Loot boxes! Skins! With the rise of digital downloads gamers don’t even own their games anymore, instead they license them! Gamers OWN nothing. On top of that eighty percent is providing value to make sure that twenty percent of the gamers is paying. However, all that money goes to billion dollar companies. This next step in gaming evolution changes all that.

Games that follow the play-to-earn paradigm will bring value to the ones playing. You don’t necessarily make a living out of it, but you do earn something for hard work and time spent. Gamers earn digital assets that they can use inside the game world or sell on an open blockchain-powered marketplace to other players and collectors. Play to earn, you’ve earned it!
