With how gaming has evolved over the years, changes are not something to be frightened of in any sense. Even though modern video gaming formed from its earliest versions in the 1970s, gaming, and technology, in general, have changed a lot when compared to today. From plug-and-play, gaming gadgets, personal computers to smartphones, gaming has improved immensely to high levels, even integrating newer tech innovations alongside.
The internet is one of those, as its integration in the gaming world has seen a huge increase in the gaming community, and it has defined contemporary gaming. But, like the saying “Change is the only constant,” this is also slowly changing as the gaming community strives for a better future. Blockchains have been a savior for many applications. And the gaming domain could not resist but adapt as the technology dwelled on the current devices – personal computers and smartphones.

There are battle-based games on different blockchains since they have been the popular genre in the current gaming scene. Games such as Axie Infinity and Illuvium demonstrate such features. Also, games based on trading cards, such as Sorare and Splinterlands, have their own fanbase for their characteristics. All these games provide the players a chance to earn real money in real-time. As they come under play-to-earn (P2E) games. While these are not based on betting, which is another huge advantage, they have garnered enough attention in some of the biggest developing nations where people actually run their lives playing these games.
