Popular play-to-earn blockchain game Alien Worlds has launched its Alien Worlds Missions game on the Binance Smart Chain (BSC).
Alien Worlds is a decentralized financial (DeFi), non-fungible token (NFT) meta-world where players compete using unique digital items (NFT) to earn the in-game currency Trilium (TLM) and travel to various planets in Alien Worlds Missions. In the game, Trilium is needed to control competing Decentralized Autonomous Organizations (DAOs), known as Planetary DAOs.
Blockchain Play to Earn games and NFTs have experienced phenomenal growth this year. According to on-chain smart contract activity tracked by DappRadar, Alien Worlds has more than 700,000 monthly active users and about 11 million transactions per day. Axie Infinity, another popular blockchain game, has about 345,000 daily transactions made by more than 620,000 users.
“The launch of the Alien Worlds Missions game on the BSC blockchain marks a historic moment for the Alien Worlds Missions community and further illustrates that ‘play and earn’ games can be highly engaging, creating a valuable experience for players without relying on invisible third-party advertisers that guide and track their engagement ,” said Alien World co-founder Saro McKenna in a statement.
McKenna said in an email that the release is the result of Alien Worlds’ cross-chain efforts to build metaspace on three blockchains – Ether, WAX and BSC.
According to DappRadar, interest in gaming decentralized applications (dApps) on BSC increased exponentially in the third quarter of this year, with 1,700% more unique active wallets (UAWs) interacting with games than in the previous quarter. To capitalize on the growing GameFi trend – the intersection of blockchain gaming and decentralized finance (DeFi) – the Binance NFT Marketplace launched its Initial Gaming Offering (IGO) this week for clients to invest in gaming NFTs projects in the early stages.
