There are games that use NFTs as cards or in game items, and yeah most of them are trash right now, but some are actually fun to play. Gods Unchained is a card game using NFTs as (almost all) of the cards. You start with some "plain" (free) cards that aren't minted as NFTs so you can play for free. You can play for free and earn more plain cards to mint into NFTs, which you can sell, as well as earning GODS tokens, as well as Expansion packs which are already minted and can also be sold. It's a lot like Hearthstone, but with crypto. It's built on the IMX platform, a layer 2 solution using ZKRollups so you can transact all you want with zero gas fees(there are protocol and marketplace fees, though). There are other NFT games on IMX, many more being developed currently, as well as stupid .jpg NFTs.
Gods Unchained stole my money with outright wrong info. Said I was buying tokens, instead they said it was some bullshit ledger signature thing. Took 35 bucks from me and gave me nothing, despite their message saying it would give me GODS tokens. Absolute scam. Plus, its entirely centralized and in no way actually utilizing NFTs for any real purpose.
I'm expert in free pocket crypto, lol. Coinbase has learn and earn, you can get around 15$ in couple minutes. Revolut will give you around 15$ in DOT when you learn about Polkadot. Cake defi can get you 10$. Bitpanda will give You 5$ in their native token by doing something I don't remember, haha. There's also a card game called Gods Unchained, if you're into games. Currently you can earn some GODS tokens and some sellable cards by competing on weekends but daily play and earn is launching in a few days also. Faucets are a waste of time, but I still claim some banano from time to time.
Despite being open world, MMORPGs have a defined plot and predefined objectives that players must complete within the limits of the narrative. On the other hand, games played in the metaverse provide a more immersive experience since they are not constrained by the usual storylines found in video games. You might want to check 7GODS built on T e l o s. Since 7GODS is an open-world game, it doesn't have the restrictions and bounds that are frequently present in many traditional games. This essential characteristic has been a crucial factor in the growth of blockchain gaming, which has drawn interest from both NFT and traditional players. Always DYOR.
tldr; Gods Unchained (GODS) is a TCG (trading card game) that went into development in 2018 and launched its beta in 2019. It is one of the first games to incorporate blockchain technology into its economy and its WAU and DAU sit around 80k and 8-12k, respectively. The game was developed on Immutable X, a Layer 2 solution utilizing Starkware to trim down on proof of work Ethereum consumption. *This summary is auto generated by a bot and not meant to replace reading the original article.

>or just arent as fun as any other non NFT games This is 100% an opinion, I've played NFT ganes even after I earned all daily rewards and it's strictly for fun at that point >until a game that is actually fun comes around Have you played Gods Unchained? It's basically a low budget hearthstone clone, but still fun because it's basically hearthstone. The difference is in hearthstone if I want to change up my deck to another style my choices are: buy packs, get rid of my cards for dust at 1/4 value, that's basically it. To keep up with the meta in hearthstone you'll be spending hundreds each month. In gods unchained you want to play a different deck here are your options: sell your old deck for basically full value, then buy the other deck you want, wait a few days to a week to get your GODS tokens and buy the cards you want with that, straight up buy the card. All of those options include being able to cash out at anytime So to recap you can spend hundreds in hearthstone to keep up with the meta, then when your done playing you get nothing back. OR if hearthstone used the NFT model you could be constantly switching decks at almost no cost to suit whatever you feel like playing. I've bought cards played them for a few matches, decided I didn't like them then sold them, try to do that in any other online TCG Oh hearthstone is overall a better game, but that's purly from blizzards budget, voice acting, animations and such
while many of your arguments hold some truth and the current sentiment is pretty clear, i find it quite amusing how someone who only experienced GU for about two months appears to be experienced enough to permanently post negative stuff in the sub and even write these reviews. You literally haven't seen 36/38 of its development, only the currently skewed state. I won't whiteknight the dev team, they've made a bunch of very questionable decisions in the recent past, but i'd still like to add my personal view to some of the issues. - bugs: there's no denying the client is clunky, some cards are broken and some bugs haven't been a priority for a long while. I still don't understand the scale at which people are complaining. I've been playing for almost two years and gamebreaking stuff happens maybe in 1/100 matches, minor annoyances are more frequent. From a business perspective it makes sense to focus on both Mobile Version & Thin Client instead of delegating too many ressources to fix bugs in a soon-to-be obolete client. - devs: i believe many players found themselves blinded by unrealistic expectations and now that the hype phase (for both GU and crypto as a whole) died down it's easier to blame the devs. Card prices were heavily inflated throughout 2021 and the devs repatedly (way before that) made it clear that their longterm goal is to create a f2p-friendly ecosystem. They quite literally achieved that - DO and MJ cards are cheap and can easily bought with earned tokens. Tokenomics and staking plans have been clear long before the token launched, it's just due to hype noone wanted to accept $GODS first and foremost is an inflationary utility token and by design bound to lose value. We early 'investors' got compensated heavily via airdrops, so whoever held all the way down and refused to sell cards while they were hot while also ignoring the facts shouldn't complain now. -powercreep: after CSR and MJ balance went downhill, i agree. Lots of silly or outright unfun stuff got introduced and every attempt at restoring balance instead led to even more broken decks going rampant for 1-2 weeks each. While balance actually looks pretty good again, the game became a lot more fast-paced and imo less interactive. Nothing to argue, that's the single most glaring problem right now. -lack of communication: i disagree wholeheartedly. Squishy and Eclipse are permanently answering questions here and on Discord, the blog became more detailed and professional over time, Yawg and Videojames read and answer balance channel on a daily basis, the trello page for bugs is going through an overhaul and overall i haven't had a single issue that their support wouldn't solve within a couple of days. Individual experiences vary, ofc. To also come to a conclusion i'm not overly euphoric for GU, but IF(!) they manage to reestablish balance as it was before CSR, deal with some inherent flaws (first turn advantage/sanctum snowballing/some gods just lacking answers to multiple meta decks) and finally push thin client/mobile plus the overhauled p2e model i can still see the game succeed big time. I wouldn't write it off yet.
On the bright side one of the nice things about crypto is that play/browse to earn/earning crypto like BAT/GODS could be lucrative depending on how well the project weathers the coming winter. Anyone have any other nice recommendations?
While I understand that a majority of altcoins will die off, what are some that hold on? Is the marketcap? My thoughts turn to Brave Browser, rewards on Coinbase Card, GODS token, etc. I'm just wondering if I should trade in or hodl for years on end....
Over the course of the next couple years, he’s gonna enjoy IMX returns. I haven’t gotten into Gods Unchained enough to dive into the GODS value proposition but it having such a head start in the NFT and gaming space has merit.
Ventricular force aided by the force of inertia applied to the language based reasoning that covers each topic. Stamp feet, clap simultaneously and begin your war chant! "I WATCHED AS THE GODS FEASTED ON MY SACK" and repeat until those who surround you repent for their delusional cultural habits.
i played for quite a bit when the Divine Order set was fresh. It was fun learning the game despite numerous bugs and shitty client, but then it started to feel like work. Now they changed the weekend ranked rewards system and I won't be jumping back in to play, like OP said in another comment it was better getting packs than $GODS as weekend rewards. However, there is a new set releasing tomorrow which I *will* be buying many packs off using the rewards in $GODS token I earned to try to open some sweet cards I can immediately sell for $ETH. Looking back, I increased my bag of $ETH by buying and trading cards more than by playing and grinding, and I regret not selling the $GODS token at 7 dollars because it's currently at $1 dollar.
I’ve played over 500 games in the past twoish months. On a fun level I’ve been enjoying it, but did enjoy it more when I first started. There is an expansion coming out in like 3 hours with brand new cards. I’m planning on buying like 4 decks $10 from GODS I’ve earned playing and trying out new combos. I don’t sell most of my cards and am trying to build a better deck that way.
I sell them all though I have bought other war cards costing up to one GODS to advance to rank 9. I have minted and sold a couple Witherfingers, a grip of Maces of Calling and some other pricey rare and epic cards. I also found a gold card in one of my DO packs. In fact that pack was like $30 of my total as there was a The Hollow in there too. Not bad for a regular rare DO pack; it ended up being almost as good as the $150 packs are with the legendary and the shiny.
This is a great question and I should have addressed it in my review. I play on a modern gaming computer with a 3070 in it but I also play on my old work laptop with an eigth gen i7 and intel graphics. It does stress the CPU out on the laptop but it doesn't mine anything on the GPU. I looked into this before I started playing and all of the GODS tokens are premined. The game must be rendered on the CPU because GPU usage shows basically nothing when it's running.

idk if it has changed, but I played around the end of last year and earned a couple dozen GODS without really trying and without spending a penny. I've never been big into TCG so I only played casually for a few weeks, but I did do the ranked mode and rarely felt like someone was essentially buying a win. Maybe a handful of games where someone had multiples of a card that cost ~5 GODS.
Gods Unchained is the only one I've played that I want to *actually* play, rather than try and earn money with, and that's down to it being Hearthstone without all the bullshit that game had. Even then, I gave up trying to get X number of ranked wins during the week, or during the weekend events to get some chance at getting better cards or earning some GODS. The others I played were far worse and I don't think they will last, taking a lot of the value in their respective assets down with them. If play2earn becomes mainstream, the game would have to not feel like a full time job, barely anyone has time enough as it is. Why would I waste my time making minimal amounts of money playing a shit game? Axie, Splinterlands, Crypto Royale, they're all wank, the only reason most people are playing them is that they know they're early enough to make money if it takes off.
So Gods unchained you can earn GODS and Cards to battle other players in a card battling system. The thing is you don’t have to pay any money and can slowly upgrade your deck for free which qualifies you for better rewards. Not sure how that would be considered a Ponzi scheme. Cards have value in the sense some give you an advantage and are in higher demand. Cards can be bought and sold as NFTs linked to your account.
Depends on the NFT game. Axie Infinity payouts in SLP, Gods Unchained payouts in GODS. Both of those are available for trading on Kucoin (and probably Binance as well). Axie Infinity became so famous in my country that there's even a local e-wallet service offering direct conversions of SLP. Price action is a different story, of course 😂
I'm going to add that many nft games require buying an nft asset, and if there's no free nft, then there's a large threshold. GU has free cards or welcome cards that can't be sold but you can use them to play the game. Minting a card is easy and all you need is 0.1 GODS, hopefully the value of GODS doesn't raise too much where that becomes difficult.
Crypto hasn't been ignored, and it never will be; many countries are adopting BTC as legal tender, and the time for Altcoins will come soon enough. It is always advisable to DYOR and from my weeks of research, although the market is unstable now and lots of tokens are suffering but I choose to hold every bag I have ever made or found interest like SCRT, ROWAN, SYLO, GODS, GGM and lots more. Sylo just made seekers xyz its nodes, all with the express goal of letting genuinely decentralized digital worlds to grow, incentivized node staking is coming up shortly, stability is still in the cryptoverse and we are all going to make it
Rant: i played Gods unchained for 2 months to collect their airdrop rewards. At the start, it was around 7 dollars a $GODS and it looked promising. But now, at $1.07 my 2 months of grinding for 50 tokens is worth 50 dollars. It will not even cover the cost of withdrawing, approving the contract and swapping. Fuck that game.
tldr; The top five Metaverse crypto coins with a market cap in the $10-$30 million range are Torum (XTM), Decentral Games (ICE), Polychain Monsters (PMON), EPIK Prime (EPIK), Gods Unchained (GODS), and Epik Prime (Epik) *This summary is auto generated by a bot and not meant to replace reading the original article.

You don't need ETH to start. They provide you with a set of cards when you create an account. Then you get other cards from levelling up and from their event every weekend. All NFTs are in a Layer 2 (Immutable X) so there are no gas fees for buying and selling. The only time you will need to pay gas fees is if you deposit or withdraw tokens (ETH, GODS, IMX, USDC) from the Layer 2.
I'm pretty high ranked and typically get a legendary pack each week so I'd say around $20 in cards each week and around 7 $GODS which was around $15 for around 4 hours of playing. Big thing though is I actually have fun doing it. It's not like axie was though where you can make a living just off of playing unless you are flipping cards in the market.
If you don’t HODL and choose to take profits often, 10% is not in the realms of ridiculous. You know those 3 I mentioned is just a small portion of all the what if, could haves? I didn’t even include IMX or even GODS unchained recently. Don’t have to be condescending. Im happy with what I did, you can believe in whatever you want buddy.
Just so you know, Gods Unchained is a card game with the former director of MtG being the current CEO. All the cards are nfts and can be bought/sold on immutable x with Ethereum. They have a $GODS token you can earn. But the game is actually fun and competitive, and plays a lot like a mix of MTG/Hearthstone.
GODS Unchained is the only one I've seen that actually puts fun first, rather than just being a chore you plough through to maybe earn some money on NFTs. My only problem with it is that it is Hearthstone, which can be a good thing, but it really needs to separate itself. I do like playing it though, even if the UI is clunky. The rest are just boring, and I can see those falling to the wayside once some legit projects come into the space that are compelling from a gameplay perspective. Axie, that's just wank.
Playing Gods Unchained weekly rewards in GODS tokens and trading cards that are NFT you can sell for ETH. As free to play player you need to invest time to become good (and get decent rewards) and read online for deck building and strategy tips. If you are not going to investin 10 hours per week is not worth to even start
I'd say I got super lucky. I used paraswap a couple times last year and got into the whole IMX/Gods unchained thing pretty early. Got a combined total airdrop of 7800 PSP, about 1900 IMX, and 800 GODS. Liquidated some to pay off debts, put the rest in eth. Still kicking myself for not getting an ENS domain name last year. I was literally like two buttons from doing so but decided against it, lol.
NFT has the potential to improve market efficiency. Converting a physical asset to a digital asset can speed up processes, eliminate middlemen, improve supply chains, and increase security. The increased utility of NFT will aid in mass adoption, as NFT can now be used by brands, as metaverse characters in Dreem, MANA, SAND, etc, as well as in P2E games like GODS, GGM, GALA, etc, and sports, music, and ticketing. This, I believe, will result in widespread adoption.
Heck yeah, love me some Gods Unchained. I put a fair bit of Ethereum in last year and made a crapload in profit so far from the airdrop, $GODS tokens, forging cards to sell, and price increases of cards over time. You can play 100% free, just don't expect to win much in the top 2 ranks.
My main game is Gods Unchained. I make around 50-100$ in packs + $GODS each weekend. Doesn't take that many hours and I also genuinely enjoy the game. The meta is a bit repetitve right now since Nature is the most F2P friendly. So you'll face A LOT of nature. But I still find the game fun. The whitepaper looks very promising! I think it's also a nobrainer to play the weekend rankeds. Its a weekly play-2-earn event. The expansion cards you'll get are all limited edition. Other game I'm really looking forward to is Guild Of Guardians. Both are in the Immutable X ecosystem.
