A blockchain game (also known as a NFT game or a crypto game) is a video game that includes elements that use cryptography-based blockchain technologies. Blockchain elements in these games are most often based on the use of cryptocurrency or non-fungible tokens (NFTs) which players can buy, sell, or trade with other players, with the game publisher taking a fee from each transaction as a form of monetization. In some cases, players of blockchain games have earned enough to pay for costs of living, making these games also known as play-to-earn games. While blockchain games have been available since 2017, blockchain games have only gathered the attention of the video game industry starting in 2021, with several AAA publishers having expressed intent to explore their potential, as well as criticism from players, developers, and companies within the game industry.
