From established play-to-earn games like Alien Worlds to newer additions like Star Atlas, the world of gaming has truly been reimagined with blockchain technology. DeFi components and NFTs have cemented gaming as the biggest fish in the ocean of creative DeFi opportunities. Within a number of these games you can see micro-communities surface; competing, building and establishing new virtual norms.

Alien Worlds for example has taken trading cards to a whole new level. Alien Worlds recorded over 760k active users in October making it one of the most popular play-to-earn games in the world. Using their in-game token, Trillium, users can now lease spacecrafts, explore the metaverse and vote in planetary elections.
With 150,000 registered players, Farmers World is another game that exploded into the crypto space. It uses the WAX NFT platform to allow players to buy land, develop farms, and become a farmer in a virtual world. Fun, educational and you can earn money. What’s not to love?
Also making the list is CryptoKitties, this is a game that has taken NFTs to a whole new level. Centered around collectible little creatures called CryptoKitties, this game allows users to breed and adopt kitties of all shapes and sizes — a virtual cat lover’s dream one might say.
