Low entry, High Rewards Decentralized Play-to-Earn Games to Watch for 2022
#1 NFT & P2E games overview in 2022
In conjunction with the NFT movement, the online gaming industry has transcended into an industry that’s worth more than the music and film industries combined. Online gaming is no more a sporadic activity one does in their spare time or is ‘play zoned’ as a hobby. Gaming has, for many, become a viable career option and is catching the interest of millions of gamers from across the globe.
The swift ascent of NFT projects and their percolation in the gaming sector has given impetus to the highly rewarding play-to-earn (P2E) gaming business model. These kinds of games let players earn crypto rewards while leveraging the benefits of NFTs to their advantage. The rising NFT projects bring forth more game-centric crypto-based ecosystems built around the P2E gaming model.
While these games offer players several monetization opportunities, often, these models posit financial barriers to universal entry. Even though the tokenomic framework of the native coin might hold transformational capabilities of turning your playing time into a revenue stream, they are mostly inaccessible. These games offer too simple a palette to hold the players’ interest for long.
To give a facelift to the current P2E NFT games industry, 11Minutes, the one-of-its-kind play2earn game series, built on the BSC Blockchain network, challenges players to attain a high score within 11 minutes. 11Minutes gaming series is going to solve quite a few problem cases, including:
- High investment as a prerequisite to participate in a game
- Longer gestation time until one earns their first rewards
- Long monotonous playing routines
- Lack of transparency in NFT games
11Minutes is a low entry, high returns play-to-earn decentralized blockchain game series that would be a fresh change against the basic backdrop of the current clique of P2E games. However,e some commendable horses in the NFT-led P2E gaming race could be potential contenders for the top NFT P2E games in 2022. Let’s discuss some cool ones before we treat you to 11Minutes — the weekly series full of adventure with very affordable entry fees for players.
#1 Axie Infinity
The NFT P2E game takes its inspiration from the Pokemon game series. The players can breed, train and buy fantasy creatures called Axies, and later, allow them to battle against each other. The players are incentivized for letting their Axies fight with the other Axies in exchange for SLP or Small Love Potions, the in-game currency of the Axie Infinity platform. These Axies are NFTs that can be bought and sold on NFT marketplaces. Axie Infinity became the most popular P2E game in the NFT domain in 2021.
It is a Solana-based NFT P2E game that employs a racing style and where users can own different parts in the game. The game parts that the users are allowed to own are minted into NFTs. You are entitled to an income/earning in the RaceFI digital world based on what game component you own. The two main features of the game are Pure Race and Battle Rae. While the two available modes to the players include the Player vs. Player model (PvP model) and the Player vs. Environment model (PvE model) — the more exciting of the two.
The game is scheduled for a launch in June 2022, with the developers having completed the series of fundamental steps. The key token of the platform would be RACEFI which the gamers can use to purchase in-game components.
#3 11Minutes: the Upcoming P2E Game Series on BSC Blockchain Network
The 11Minutes Game Series was envisioned by a team of 12 based on extensive monitoring of the development in the game industry. The founders worked on the drawbacks the current breed of NFT-based P2E games were facing.

NFT Staking: Besides the opportunity to earn rewards while at play, NFT GameTicket holders can use their NFTs to earn passive income by staking their $ELVN tokens. A total of 100 million gaming tokens $ELVN will be locked for 1 month, and later on, follow a 2-year vesting plan with daily output. 50% of the allocated tokens will be reserved for staking rewards and 50% for Token Auto-Farming.
The platform uses 4 different sources to fund the staking reward pool such that none of the players’ NFTs lose their value. The sources include:
- 3% of the Token Transfer fee
- 2.5% of the proceeds from each NFT sale will be used to buy back $ELVN tokens from the market and transferred back to the staking rewards pool.
- 50% of the daily release of the allotted staking reward pool.
