Play-to-Earn: An Introduction to a Revolutionary Model
Published December 7, 2021

To the everyday individual, the concept of playing-and-earning seem to be two mutually exclusive terms embedded in us from childhood. We are taught from a young age that a classroom is a place for learning, while recess is our time for sport and running around on the playground.

While the Play-to-Earn (P2E) concept could seem like a fad to some, there are strong fundamentals to back it up including player-to-player economies, metaverse development, diversity in NFTs, and revenue generation with cryptocurrencies.

In this post we will introduce the Play-to-Earn model and discuss the impact it has had in the growing blockchain-enabled gaming niche.
