In our previous blog post, we tackled different ways to earn with DeFi. Just to remind you, DeFi, which is short for “decentralized finance”, is a term that recently gained a lot of attention. So, in our previous blog post, we showed you different ways to earn with DeFi, including airdrops, yield farming, and video games. 

Oh yes, video games. In this blog post, we’re diving deep into a dream come true—how to earn while playing games on DeFI. Let’s take a look at games you can play. Ready?

In August 2021, we covered a new list of play to earn games which you can find by clicking here.

Axie Infinity – a digital pet universe on the blockchain

Axie Infinity is a Pokémon-inspired universe where anyone can earn tokens by playing games. The game allows players to battle, collect, raise, and even build a kingdom for their pets. Although still in the early development, Axie Infinity is ranked as the #1 Ethereum game by daily, weekly, and monthly active users. And from recently, the platform presented its play to earn development, backed by DeFi. Last year, the platform even organized competitive tournaments with token rewards for skilled gameplay. If you’re interested in the latest developments around Axie Infinity and how to earn while playing it, make sure to join their Discord.

Cometh game – earn with gamified DeFi platform

Besides being a space game, Cometh is also a gamified DeFi platform. How does it work? In a nutshell, players mine MUST tokens using their spaceships. A share of all NFT sales gets distributed as asteroids back into the game. When other players use your spaceship, you earn the tokens. Moreover, the platform recently announced the launch of its decentralized exchange, ComethSwap, which will serve as a middleman between MUST tokens and the NFTs between Ethereum and the layer2.

Seascape Network

Seascape Platform, powered by Seascape Network, announced the launch of an innovative game ecosystem centered around DeFi and the NTF economy. During the first quarter of 2021, the first of three minigames, titled Profit Circus, will debut. The games’ initial liquidity mining event will provide nearly 50,000 $CWS to the early players. The potential of this innovative project was confirmed when Binance, the world’s largest cryptocurrency exchange, has recently invested in the network.

KingSwap – raffle games

KingSwap, a popular DeFi project, has also joined the bandwagon. At the end of 2020, the platform announced the launch of its NFT staking program and raffle games, with a mission to accelerate the adoption of DeFI through gamification. Founded by a team of experienced professionals in the finance and crypto industry, KingSwap raised more than $20 million in funding and liquidity support in a private fundraising round. 

With the staking program, the players can stake their King, Queen, or Knight NFTs for a certain set period of 3, 6, 12, 24, or 48 months. In addition, KingSwap has also rolled out NFT games inspired by poker and slot machines. 

This game also has an airdrop you can still collect.

Aavegotchi game – collect ghosts and earn with DeFi

The Tamagotchi-inspired decentralized finance game Aavegotchi has a mission to make DeFi more fun. Players can acquire little ghosts, use them to battle other critters, and even dress them up with wearables (NFTs). The ghosts are acquired by staking aTokens, which is a token of the Aave platform. These tokens, underpinned by the deposited crypto assets, can earn interest for the players. Pixelcraft Studios, the Singapore-based company, is the brain behind this cute idea.

Earn crypto with Counter-Strike – Not DeFi, but it still allows you to ‘Play and earn’

Did you know that you can earn Bitcoin by playing Counter-Strike? Yes, my friend, you’ve read it well. Thanks to a new development that rewards players via Lightning Network, the application called Infuse allows players to earn satoshis for each enemy killed. A gaming developer called ZEBEDEE is responsible for this amazing design. So, how does it work? Players can install Infuse on their servers and even organize custom games, tournaments, and competitions while being rewarded with Bitcoin. At the moment, the application is still in the test phase and runs on private servers. However, according to the company, the plan is to launch public servers in the first quarter of 2021. 


So, we made it. We covered four DeFi-powered games that you can play and earn. Plus, a famous Counter Strike that will soon allow you to earn Bitcoin. Now it’s your turn. Tell us in the comments if you’ve already tried out some of these games? What were your impressions?
