Alien Worlds has emerged as the leading blockchain game with nearly 11 million daily transactions undertaken by more than 700,000 monthly active users.
DappRadar, a leading portal for decentralized applications, undertook this study by tracking on-chain smart contract activity.
Max Infeld, an NFT artist, praised Alien Worlds for taking off in less than 12 months and said:
“The Alien Worlds community has successfully inspired a generation of blockchain gamers to engage in the same intense cooperation and competition – mining, fighting, playing games and participating in governance – that is found in any earthbound community.”
Alien Worlds is a blockchain-based game that involves playing non-fungible tokens (NFTs), voting in elections, staking Trillium tokens to planets, and running for planetary council.
Furthermore, this game is founded on a competitive Decentralized Autonomous Organization (DAO) structure that motivates and engages players on their virtual home called Planet DAO.
Alien Worlds has 3.6 million registered users
The blockchain-based game’s popularity has not gone unnoticed since it was launched in beta version in 2020 because it comprises around 3.6 million registered NFT enthusiasts and game players.
Kevin Wang, a partner at Longling Capital, noted:
“Alien Worlds started with a vision to make the most of NFTs and blockchain technology by building a social and economic structure that gamers could explore and enjoy in many different ways.”
NFTs have been taking different sectors by storm, including the gaming world.
For instance, World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE), an American integrated media and entertainment company mainly known for professional wrestling, announced in August the gracing of pay-per-view event SummerSlam with NFTs inspired by 16-time world champion John Cena.
NFTs are blockchain-based ownership digital assets, and their value is pegged on their uniqueness, given that the tokens are non-divisible and have to be bought in their entirety. As a result, these traits create intrinsic value for NFTs because of their limited supply.
