Here we have compiled short answers to frequently asked questions.
What is P2E?
P2E or Play-to-Earn is a mechanic that allows you to play games and earn cryptocurrency in the process. After playing, your earnings can be sold or exchanged for regular money, like any other cryptocurrency.
What other mechanics are there?
Apart from the good old Play-to-Earn, there is also “Move-to-Earn”, which uses a movement tracker for gauging your in-game progress. Get an app, link it to your GPS and/or smart watch, and get paid for running or even walking.
“Sweat-to-Earn” is similar to the previous one, except it requires you to actually work up a sweat before you can earn crypto. Your gym can now pay for itself!
“Learn-to-Earn” is a way to reward you for learning new stuff; most often used in educational courses on crypto-related topics. Take a course and, instead of paying for it, you yourself get paid for learning. Although the rewards are usually minuscule, there is no limit as to how many courses you can take.
What are Metaverse Tokens?
Metaverse tokens are tokens that are used to transact in a metaverse. You need them to buy digital art, virtual land or a piece of digital cake. You can compare them with the currency of the state you come to for vacation.
What is digital fashion?
Digital fashion is virtual clothes that are created using 3D modeling and AR (Augmented Reality). Such clothes can be found in applications with AR support and you can actually try on a garment in the app and buy it either for yourself or for your game character. The world of NFT fashion does not end with the creation of virtual clothes: designers raise important themes in their outfits, expensive collections featuring top brands are displayed in the metaverses, and there’s even a virtual fashion week.
What is the metaverse?
The Metaverse is a shared virtual space that is meant to either enhance or completely supplant real-world activities, such as social life, financing, business, entertainment, etc. There is no worldwide metaverse just yet, but there are pretty big projects out there as we speak. To join them, all you need is a smartphone or a browser with a stable connection; others can be accessed with a VR helmet. You can find out about existing projects here.
How to get into the metaverse?
Right now, there are lots of projects that could evolve into a full-blown metaverse at some point. To dive into a project, you need to go to its website or get the app and sign up. More often than not, you’ll need a crypto wallet for interacting with the virtual world. You can choose an interesting project on this page.
Do I need any equipment?
You might need special hardware to get the full metaverse experience, but for the first acquaintance with the Play-to-Earn world, even a basic smartphone or computer will suffice. For deeper immersion, you’ll need a VR headset or AR smart glasses.
I want to start playing P2E games, where do I start?
There is no definitive answer to this question, as it’s up to you what game to hop into.
Some of the most popular P2E games out there are Axie Infinity, The Sandbox, or Decentraland. The following section will help you to understand games and platforms in more detail.
