Finder.com’s cryptocurrency editor Keegan Francis says game developers are increasingly using NFTs and cryptocurrency to build more enticing monetary incentives into their games.

“P2E games have their own digital asset-powered economies, allowing gamers to earn rewards.

“Gamers can potentially earn two types of cryptocurrency – native cryptocurrency in the form of tokens, or existing cryptocurrency like Bitcoin or Ethereum.

“It’s currently younger Filipinos who are involved in P2E NFT games, with adoption highest among those in between the ages of 18-44. However we’re expecting to see an uptick in adoption across all age groups.

Francis said that gamers who can’t afford the entry cost to play might want to consider joining a guild.

“Guilds allow players, known as scholars, to play a game like Axie Infinity for free by lending you the required NFTs and you are then usually entitled to a share of the earnings while the remainder goes to the guild”.
