This technology has incorporated different functions and improvements related to security, management, commerce, interaction, and playability.

The NFTs (Non-fungible tokens)
NFTs became very popular after some video game artists and developers began to generate considerable income with these digital tokens. Unlike cryptocurrencies, these non-fungible currencies have value according to their popularity, which means that if the video game or item is in high demand and short supply, it will cause its value to increase relative to other digital tokens. Here we share some popular video games based on blockchain or NFT technology:

This video game has similar mechanics to Nintendo’s Pokémon series, with a turn-based combat system and the ability to “farm” to get improvements or new skills.
