NFT games are an important part of chain games. Because game assets have the characteristics of value circulation, chain games are also called “GameFi”, which often refers to games that use blockchain technology to circulate assets on the chain. “Financialization of games” or “gamification of financial products” is also gradually Become the selling point of chain games.
This round of GameFi’s explosion benefited from the development of DeFi and NFT-NFT gave a basis and carrier for the value consensus and ownership of game assets; with the blessing of open financial applications, these game assets on the chain have been collected and traded. Even in the lending scene.
GameFi can flourish, thanks to the improvement of public chain performance. In the early days, GameFi projects were mainly concentrated on the Ethereum chain, and Ethereum often affected the experience of game users due to congestion and high GAS fees. Today, the emergence of Layer 2 and other high-performance public chains is solving pain points and providing the underlying infrastructure for the popularization of the GameFi project.
This round of rising game assets has caused the outside world to re-examine the development of the GameFi track. In the early days, many teams were committed to the field of blockchain games, hoping to use blockchain technology to financialize game assets. This issue of DeFi Honeycomb sorts out the GameFi representative projects of different public chains.
