What are Web3 games?
Web3 games allow gamers to earn real-world benefits while playing, which is infinitely more beneficial to gamers compared to traditional games, where in-game items/assets are valuable inside the game only.
For example, various Web3 games contain NFTs (Non-Fungible Tokens) which players can either buy or be rewarded with.
Once you own an in-game asset in a Web3 game, this asset can be kept by you forever or until a time when you feel that it can be sold to other players either within the game or outside the game on dedicated marketplaces.
How do Web3 games work?
Web3 games introduce a new financial system in games through the help of blockchain technology, superior to the current system in traditional games where in-game assets bought by you are locked within the game and ultimately, under the control of the game’s developer.
Web3 games resolve this by giving you true ownership of your assets and a blockchain platform where assets can either be sold, traded or bought.
As an example, a character skin owned by you in a Web3 game can be sold on the game’s blockchain platform for a monetary benefit.
