Opening the door to play-to-earn gaming and the metaverse for Minecraft gamers
Minecraft, the best-selling game in history which counts more than 170 million players worldwide, will soon be able to earn Trilium (TLM), the native token of the Alien Worlds metaverse. Alien Worlds is one of the most extensive play-to-earn blockchain games and metaverse platforms and a regular in the DappRadar top five games since launching in early 2020.
Running on both BNB Chain and the WAX blockchain, Alien Worlds attracts more than half a million unique active wallets a month. In the game, users can collect and trade unique digital items in the form of NFTs, mine planets for resources, stake TLM, go on missions to other planets, vote in elections, and run for planetary council. The game’s six planet DAOs compete amongst themselves for TLM, which encourages user collaboration.
Minecraft players can now earn TLM in Alien Worlds
The new interoperability bridge to Minecraft should have a knock-on effect in the traditional and blockchain gaming worlds. The bridge will accelerate the onboarding of non-blockchain gamers onto the Alien Worlds metaverse. Traditional gamers can now dip a toe into the world of play-to-earn and earn assets, in this case, Trilium, and soon NFTs for completing quests. Then exchange their digital assets and earn real-world value by getting involved in Alien Worlds’ economy.
Minecraft gamers will be able to earn TLM and stake it to one of the Alien Worlds Planet DAOs, which hold some of the biggest treasuries in the blockchain industry. Staked TLM gives players voting power to determine the control of planetary treasuries. Minecraft players will not only be able to learn about DAOs, but also participate in the collaborative, competitive, and highly strategic environment of the Alien World metaverse. Moreover, it is hoped that
Alien Worlds’ combination of economics, team strategy, and earning will convert Minecraft players of all ages into Web3 players.
Blockchain gaming leads the industry
Blockchain games and metaverse projects could not escape the macro trends that dragged the crypto market down in Q1 2022. Nonetheless, the Blockchain game’s daily activity only fell 13% in February and attracted over 1.1 million daily unique active wallets on average, accounting for 49% of dapp usage overall.
In the same way, virtual worlds are experiencing a consolidation phase after the Meta hype cycle, solidifying even further the status of this type of dapp. As the space prepares to keep building and developing, other leading game projects flex their muscles to maintain their positions.
Axie Infinity is preparing essential changes to its ecosystem, including the expected release of the Origin season, fee structure changes, and a more dynamic play mode. While Gala Games just completed a governance vote to include Superior, a third-person co-op shooter, in its game catalog. Additionally, a revamp for another Gala Games project, TownStar, may also translate into a substantial jump in activity for the farming simulation game.
These updates offer further opportunities to get hands-on experience with some of the most popular metaverse-based game dapps. The community can explore gaming projects and game tokens on DappRadar and get ahead of the curve with our monthly gaming reports.
