NFT gaming is one of the biggest developments that intrigues both developers and gamers because of its common impact on the digital audience. All over the world, gamers are seeking out rare items, collecting limited NFTs, unlocking scarce art to hold, sell, or play-to-earn.

As NFTs move from just pieces of artworks or JPEG that you buy, hold, and sell as you wish, to a play-to-earn model which provides opportunities for players to earn money as they play, gamers are monetizing their playing time by buying and selling in-game NFTs or completing tasks in exchange for cryptocurrency rewards.

What is NFT game/gaming?

NFT games are gaming platforms where in-game collectibles such as non-fungible tokens are traded over secondary marketplaces for rewards in the form of fiat or cryptocurrency. While NFT gaming introduces the play-to-earn category, the gaming platform enables players to earn rewards by playing games and trading the in-game assets they receive. NFT games are very beneficial to players as it continues to give value in exchange for time to their active players.

These in-game assets include collectibles, weapons, avatars, rewards, inventories, and so much more and it varies based on the NFT game. The interesting fact is that this in-game NFT asset can be monetized either in the same game marketplace or in a secondary marketplace.

Notably, NFT gaming platforms are dependent solely on the blockchain. They’re built on and this paves the way for the architecture of the platform to store data and secure the ownership of the in-game assets. Popular play-to-earn games include Axie Infinity, Gods Unchained, CryptoKitties Decentraland, Evolution Land, DungeonSwap, Sorare, and more. These are just a few popular NFT games available in the digital space, with more enticing ones coming up.

NFT gaming has paved the way for a play-to-earn model in the virtual world. While in the blockchain gaming economy, players are rewarded for active participation. For every task that is completed, players get rewarded and they can monetize them either on the same game marketplace or a secondary marketplace.

ApeX NFT Game: One Last Ape Standing

The ApeX team has adopted the idea of NFT gaming hence, we present the ApeX NFT Game — One Last Ape Standing. The main gameplay and inspiration behind the ApeX NFT game is the squid game model, or a coordination game. Each individual can decide whether he or she would want to immediately receive tokens, or HODL them for a longer time and stand a chance to earn from a larger pool that includes tokens forfeited by those who burn their NFTs early.

Each in-game ApeX NFT (ApeX Predator NFTs) is worth up to 4,500 $APEX. Holders can get a bonus within the ApeX NFT Game that will last for 6 months, and stand a chance to win up to 123,630 APEX by participating in the ApeX NFT Game.

Holders need to burn their ApeX predator NFTs to redeem the APEX tokens. ApeX NFT game rewards can be divided into two parts, which are base rewards and bonuses. The amount of bonuses one can get depends on two factors: holding time and the number of remaining NFTs in the game.

The rewards an NFT holder can get within the ApeX NFT game is calculated as follows:

  • Time passed: the length of time you hold the NFT during the game period, which will last for a total of 180 days.
  • Vault: current prize pool amount.
  • nftCount(remain): the number of remaining NFTs in the game.
  • 1500 stands for APEX tokens that will be distributed linearly one the game begins.

According to the ApeX game settings, only 60% of the total bonuses will be distributed to participants who choose to burn their NFTs, and the remaining 40% will stay in the prize pool.

The Floor price of ApeX NFTs is 0.85eth at the time of writing compared to the mint price of 0.45eth, and is growing (for more insights visit :

In summary, the longer your NFT holding period, the more $APEX rewards you can grab. Except for the main gameplay itself, ApeX will launch a series of marketing campaigns jointly with other star NFT projects, which will benefit all ApeX NFT holders.

Concluding thoughts

The NFT gaming marketplace will add value to gamers and the NFT project as more gaming protocols continue to emerge. Let’s not also fail to mention that NFT games will mix the real and virtual worlds soon. These games will integrate interoperability, fitness games just like the StepN game that rewards players with NFT badges as they hit the target goal, and lots more. The use of NFTs means that players can be sole owners of a game item which they can choose to either trade, sell or hold; they will be in full control. We believe play-to-earn will be the future of the NFT gaming space.
