What is crypto gaming? According to the Financial Express, crypto games are video games that run on a cryptocurrency network and include a completely or partially distributed ledger architecture, providing players with verifiable ownership over virtual products contained in games.

The popularity of gaming and cryptocurrency has surged in the last two years as the combination of making money while playing games proves to be quite the incentive for many in the online world.

With the likes of Sony, Nintendo and Microsoft boasting gaming revenue over US$10 billion each, developers are using the rise in crypto and gaming popularity to create in-game products, characters, collectables and more.

Decentraland, a 3D virtual reality platform running on Ethereum blockchain that allows users to buy and own virtual property, is the largest crypto gaming token with a market capitalisation of US$9.16 billion.
