How do play-to-earn games work?
Let’s take Axie Infinity as an example.
In order to start playing, the user must assemble a team of 3 Aksi (in-game characters).
You can either buy them. Or rent: the player receives them for free, and then pays with the funds received during the gameplay GameFi .
After, you can start playing. For the gameplay, the player receives a cryptocurrency, which can be:
1. Sell on the market
2. Submit for staking
3. Buy new Axis
Axi is a non-fungible token (NFT). You can buy several characters, then cross them. And sell the resulting animal. The higher the rarity, the more expensive it is.
From this we draw up a scheme of work “P2E”:
1. Purchase of tokens
2. Gameplay – battles, completing tasks, etc.
3. Cryptocurrency reward
4. Making a profit (staking, selling NFTs)
5. Back to the second point
There are some differences, for example, a number of projects do not require payment for a character – a complete “Free-2-play”. We are currently considering implementing this model in our project Rotgar – RPG with turn-based combat on The Open Network blockchain .
