Since the emergence of blockchain technology, the gaming industry has been a particularly exciting space, with the potential for games to be completely decentralized and free of the restrictions and costs imposed by traditional game publishers. One of the most interesting innovations in the gaming space has been non-fungible token (NFT) games, which enable players to truly own the items and assets they acquire in-game, rather than having to purchase expensive digital copies that exist only in the game’s digital server.

P2E games are digital plays that necessarily require crypto assets and NFTs for the gameplays. They help gamers earn rewards by generating incentives at various levels of the games.

In India, 38.1 per cent of men are involved in P2E games, whereas the number of women stands at 29.2 per cent. A total of 41.7 per cent of P2E gamers fall in the age group of 18–34, whereas 29.1 per cent are from 35–54 years of age. — Source

When playing a “play-to-earn” game, the player has the opportunity to win rewards that have monetary value in the real world. While “gold farming” and other illicit marketplaces for in-game items have let players make money for years, the advent of blockchain technology and NFTs has fundamentally altered the playing field.

The popularity of player-to-player (P2P) games has increased because to the inclusion of features such as utility tokens, active communities, and entertaining gameplay.

The founder of Reddit, Alexis Ohanian, predicts that 90 percent of the gaming market will be Play-to-Earn games within the next five years.

“90 percent of people will not play a video game unless they are being properly valued for that time,” Ohanian said.

IndiGG is a decentralised autonomous organisation (DAO) under Yield Guild Games (YGG) that organises and hosts the largest Web3 gaming tournaments in India.

They’re working on a variety of games that let players earn money through play and on gaming guilds. By helping Indians interested in making money through online gaming, IndiGG hopes to make a difference.

The goal of this Indian DAO is to bring more than 100 million Indian players to the P2E platform.

Since its inception in January 2022, IndiGG has partnered with nearly all of the most popular P2E games, enabling it to provide hundreds of scholarship grants to promising young players. More than 60,000 gamers have joined IndiGG’s discord server because of its welcoming and active community.

With each new P2E game that IndiGG adds to its roster of partnered titles, the community expands.

Skyweaver, rootor (a gaming streaming platform), Battle Royale, Undead Blocks, One World Nation, Delysium, and Age of Battles are just some of the partners it has made thus far.
