Recently, GameFi has become another major industry buzzword after DeFi. It refers to innovative and economical games that have been developed based on blockchain technology and cryptocurrency with “Play To Earn”（P2E）as its most important feature.
It can be concluded that “GameFi=DeFi+NFT+Game”.The NFT attribute makes that all assets, props, and characters in the game are unique and collectible, and players can fully own the ownership of these assets in the decentralized game and profit from the game through matchmaking, replicas, socializing, and other gameplay. This feature somehow breaks the convention that game assets only belong to the game development company and creates the possibility for players to achieve financial growth through the game.
According to DappRadar, as of November 10, 2021, a total of 1,070 game DApps have been launched, and the transaction amount and user volume of a single day peaked on October 1 and 7, respectively, with the highest daily transaction amount reaching $484 million and the largest number of users reaching 1.33 million in a single day. In particular, the recent performance of the Blockchain Games represented by the Play-to-Earn economic model is exceptionally remarkable. The total market cap of tokens in the Play-to-Earn category has surpassed $25 billion, a record high, according to CMC on Nov. 7.
The mania attitude of the market for the Blockchain Games especially GameFi has attracted more and more developers, players and publishers to join the frenzy.
