Crypto-native gaming is changing generations.
It’s aligning incentives for game developers, players and investors.
If you don’t already know the significance of play-to-earn games, here’s a refresher — they create whole economies. This is not entirely new but NFTs open a new layer of ownership and fun. It’s the backbone of crypto-native gaming.
Remember Runescape? Players completed quests for gold, used that gold to buy in-game weapons and sold those items for real money. It was completely under-the-table but a small digital economy emerged from the corners of the internet.
Crypto-native gaming gives us a more sophisticated framework for trading in-game items. No longer in the shadows, it’s even encouraged. With blockchain technology, we have an immutable record of ownership which provides the basis for an effective marketplace structure. It allows for trading both within the game and outside of it, like on Magic Eden.
With NFTs, a gamer is both a participant and an owner. The usual game loops are taken to the next level.

🎮 Hyped for MixMob
Main sale: 7 Dec, 9 AM PST/6 PM CEST
What would happen if an AI deleted our culture?
A team of veteran game developers (FIFA, Nintendo & Halo, ring a bell?) created MIXMOB, a play-to-earn game that rebuilds an AI-deleted culture by remixing it.
To join the game, you’d need one of the 10,000 masks available.
As you level up and journey through the MIXMOB game universe, your mask evolves with you. There’s a card strategy battle and MMO battle royale in the mix.
Check out the game overview here.
