Video game publishers are increasingly looking at the play-to-earn model but will gamers sign up?


Could play-to-earn completely change our relationship to video games? — AFP Relaxnews

Among video game publishers, a hot new concept is getting industry actors excited, that of play-to-earn, where gamers play to make money. Video games would no longer be a simple pastime, but a regularly profitable endeavour through a tie-up of gaming and cryptocurrency. While it may sound enticing, gamers are not yet taking up these challenges in droves.

Are video game publishers trying to put you to work? Well, in any case they want you to make some money (but don't worry, they're in it to make some too). How? Simply by playing. No more playing just to acquire gear in the game or gain experience in order to be able to face off against stronger and stronger opponents. No, here the objective is to collect unique digital objects in the game certified by blockchain and facilitate sales between players.
