10 P2E games / apps with Passive Income options + NFT giveaway
Your money should work for you & if your video game can work for you, then get on that gold farming right? What if like a financial assets, game assets had passive earning mechanisms?
That what if, has been a reality for a while now, from commission on facilitating asset use, renting game items, & so many more passive game income options.
We will need to address a few matters in terms of context, though monetizing game assets is a reality, this was only possible due Blockchain & NFTs.
NFT does not = scam, through NFTs & Blockchain we have innovation never thought possible in games.
As in every post this one has an NFT giveaway for readers at the end, including NFTs you can start passively earning from games with today.
Before I begin though in a list format none of these are ranked, I specify some projects I feel are a cut above but they all have merit.
Disclaimer: I am not now nor have I ever claimed to be a financial advisor, intended for informational purposes only, this should not be considered financial advice.
No.1 Beast Gardens (WAX)
Have you ever played a phantasy TCG ,& thought I wish I could make money for this game playing itself?
First off, same here🤣
Beast Garden took this concept of hands off gaming & ran with it.
This isn't to say Beast Gardens isn't fun it is, also there are, Battle Pass rewards, daily challenges, & Leader Board rewards to top players.
A standard 3v3 Monster Battle TCG Beast Garden has a few stand out features making it unique. For starters users can permanently evolve a Monster Card (NFT) through a blend process.
You can choose to play active matches or you have the option of passively staking a monster team.
Again activity is rewarded with Beast Gardens, but lets be real who has the time.
A little more active but you may also grow fruit (used to evolve) claimed from the players plants every few days.
BGWATER used with plants is earned hourly for Spring NFT holders, does not stop & stacks continuously until claimed.
BGALPHA (Main Crypto) is used in the market in game & can be generated every 24 hours for staked teams of 3 Beast NFTs. The BGALPHA earned stacks continuously until claimed, the rarer the Beast NFTs or Stronger your team higher the daily rewards.
What makes Beast Gardens Special?
Innovation given I never even thought I would be able to evolve a collectible Trading Card in my lifetime, Beast Gardens made this & more a reality.
I keep informed on this project the link below takes you to the new Beta site of Beast Gardens.
No.2 Splinterlands (HIVE)
As a borderline Splinterlands stalker, I as an uberfan have to bring it up any time possible.
Of course Splinterlands has passive income options, basically pioneering NFT rentals, that's quite an active rental market.
For those at a loss here, let me break it down for you.
Splinterlands is a P2E (Play 2 Earn) TCG (Trading Card Game) in which players use Summoner Cards & Monster Cards to battle one another for Monetized rewards.
Enterprising players like myself supply others with the best of the best cards (NFTs), either as rentals temporarily or just sold outright to them.
Not all NFT rentals have the market Splinterlands does, with 160,000 daily players & thousands of dollars in prizes on the line every day.
SPS one main prize for winning ranked matches of Splinterlands, this gets automatically staked, staking SPS generates Voucher / SPS rewards in game. Those wishing to get the full benefit from staking SPS can sign up for a second HIVE P2E Genius League Sports (takes 2 min) also earn GLX rewards for staking SPS in Splinterlands.
For those totally new you can find Splinterlands via my referral link below.
Splinterlands NFTs now get used in 2 separate HIVE P2E games, the new addition to the group is Splinterforge, in beta until January, the creator welcomes all of us to try it.
Some more Splinterlands info is available here
Monetized Splinterlands Blog
I normally would spend a half hour read length talking up Splinterlands but we simply do not have the time in this format.
What Makes Splinterlands Special?
My entire portfolio, all my NFT / Crypto profits (around $30,000), & the thousands of dollars in NFTs I have given away, none of this would be possible without Splinterlands.
No.3 Alien Worlds
Now this colection like Splinterlands is attached to one of the best P2E games in the world (well the universe as it where).
Alien Worlds is a Mining Simulator in which players mine for TLM or NFTs / run missions for rewards.
Those are the active earning mechanisms for those looking to get passive income from alien worlds its going to get expensive.
You see Splinterlands allows players to rent out reasonably cheap assets for a decent ROI, Alien Worlds only has land plots ☝️ that earn the owners commission when used by other players. The cheapest land plot in alien worlds sells for over $1,000 USD each, though pricey they generate the owner a good clip.
You can also custom set rewards distribution as the land plot owner including the % commission & a NFT rewards pool if desired.
The NFT rewards pool can be linked to any verified WAX NFT colection not just Alien Worlds.
Using Alien Worlds as a distribution mechanism several WAX NFT collections where elevated from ordinary to extraordinary, like Crypto Monkeys.
Alien Worlds is free to play & those looking for a expansive game universe / community need look no further.
What makes Alien Worlds Special?
Aside from being one of Splinterlands only real competitors, Alien worlds has a deal with Binance a Crypto exchange.
Not to mention For goodness sakes Alien Worlds is integrated with nearly everything including Minecraft.
No.4 Roller Coin (Many)
Roller Coin the little crypto mining simulation that could, in Roller Coin players either play flash games for temporary crypto mining power or purchase NFT mining rigs to mine passively permanently.
I'm a firm believer P2E games should cost as little as possible to earn you the most as one can for a minimalist investment.
Having played roller coin for nearly 3 years...
So in my room or build if you will, I have $15 into & that was 2 mining Rigs = to 28 THS mining power.
This was my Room or build ☝️ 25 days ago with 97 THS mining power without boosts. Having spent $0 out of pocket to do so in this time I have improved my build with several new miners adding 93 THS in mining power 👇.
The rigs added should have cost me $65 or more, so how did I manage this for free?
Its a secrete...
However your reading this, so I think ill trust you with my secret.
I just played the daily challenges in game for free, selling the parts I won by doing so.
Doing this & shopping smart on the new P2P market in game I managed to get $65 in mining rigs for free in less then a month.
Given the RST system was new, I knew that it was without thorough testing, thus I used that knowledge to search for exploits. The challenge system was easily exploited by buying & selling Parts + playing 1 game a day.
Roller Coin is still free it takes a little time & effort but this is a game you can set up a passive income with for free.
What Makes Roller Coin So Special?
It has existed as a faucet for years but in recent moths tokenized their in game miners making them NFTs, legitimately run partially on blockchain it now qualifies as a P2E game, that's far from easily accomplished.
No.5 Mining Network (WAX)
Having played this a few months now I like the feel of Mining Network.
A meta Mining experience sporting classic polygonal graphics reminiscent of early desktop layout.
Our Idea here is simple ASIC Miner NFTs ownership of which ears the owner rewards hourly.
Fairly cheap to get into I spent roughly $1.50 on mining rig NFTs (5 of which I gave away) you can get started with next to nothing & those of us that like those retro Crypto Mining Sims appreciate the attention to detail.
Please consider checking out Mining Network via my referral link
What makes Mining Network Special?
Popularity their sales numbers had them at the top of the P2P market sale volume on WAX a few months back anything that hits number 1 its best to keep an eye on.
No.6 Upland (EOS)
Though based off EOS or BSC in certain functionality even WAX, for the blockchain illiterate Upland is a great place to start you dont even need a wallet.
Having been doing this for years tested hundreds of P2E games, even contributing to the creation of a few P2E titles, the 3 best games I have played are Splinterlands, Alien Worlds, & Upland in that order.
So what makes Upland tick?
We the players of this metaverse / game own property NFTs when visited by other players we earn commission.
Players visit property when pursuing randomly spawned Prize chests.
Like Splinterlands or Alien worlds there is a reward for using the other players NFTs, this is key.
Earning UPX a in game currency players can purchase more property NFTs, I test these titles their functions just to report on them. In some cases like Splinterlands or alien worlds I become an avid player, in Uplands case its a respect for the Dev teams talent I keep informed.
With Upland I have tested their Bank Account linking function (as a US Citizen) & I got it to work selling one of my properties for $8 as a proof of concept. I also have tested their WAX portal system, but I'm playing it by ear before I set up an in game NFT showroom as I want the kinks worked out first.
Just owning property in game is enough for a passive income Upland like Alien Worlds & Splinterlands is beyond complex / impressive so there is much more to it then just that.
My referral link is below please consider using it to check upland out.
What Makes Upland So Special?
Main Stream acceptance, given that upland takes place with tokenized versions of property IRL, on top of that NFLPA has signed with the project.
Upland is promising a startling level of innovation offering Metaverse ran store fronts (TBA) for now working on NFT portals property customization, steadily Upland is working toward that goal many felt unreachable.
No.7 Green Rabbit (WAX)
Having been with Green Rabbit since the beginning, its a P2E with passive earnings mechanics I overlook far to often.
Though their flash game with SHELL rewards is free its also an active earning mechanism, you can also stake NFT USBs on Green Rabbit.
What makes this project Special?
Green rabbit asides from a skilled dev team has considerable financial backing, owners of a successful California Marijuana Dispensary rolled their proceeds into this project.
Not that I had the time to check it out but the WAX based Metaverse Project by Green Rabbit, both connected to the WAX NFT colection Green Rabbit Never fails to impress.
No.8 Rising Star (HIVE)
Rising Star Is good enough, that ill skip right to, what makes it Special?
Rising Star is a Musician first, community first HIVE P2E that's free to play.
Musicians can tokenize their work through the Blockchain Game Rising Star, we the players can stake STARBITS (their Crypto) on Music NFTs still for sale earning the investor a % of sale Proceeds for doing so.
HIVE itself wouldn't be the same without Rising Star, its that supportive helpful aspect of our community that games like Rising Star has helped foster.
Besides helping real musicians there is a band management sim that earns players STARBITS for playing gigs (missions)
Give Rising Star a try your self via my referral link below
No.9 Coin app (ETH payout only)
Do you spend much time exercising outside, or commuting to work?
To many of us that answer is a resounding yes.
Coin is a app that allows users to earn XYO (Crypto) or Prizes by turning it on while we go about our day.
Using a data conection & GPS on your device, the app feeds its creators your telemetry data.
I used Coin App for a few years now & I have no more, or less stalkers then usual 🙄.
I have also cashed out for 6913 XYO (Told you I test this stuff), I cashed out in 2020 of September, XYO is an ERC-20.
Minimum Cash out for XYO is 1000 in Coin app
Downside ETH gas fees you cash out to a wallet & not an exchange so you have to bite the gas fee to get XYO to one once cashed out.
Upside Coinbase facilitates trade on XYO making cash out easy.
What makes Coin app so special?
Have you ever encountered an exercise app which pays you & isn't a scam? I have tested a few this is the only one I have with payment proof.
Below is my coin app referral, please consider checking out the free app using it.
No.10 Hashkings (HIVE)
Last but certainly not least Hash Kings, a cannabis farming sim with a myriad of game types & other games within its ecosystem.
Now this write ups just about passive earning mechanisms, & while the active earnings mechanisms within the HK ecosystem, are a myriad possibilities.
There are a few passive earning mechanics tied to this P2E game.
For Starters owners of Hashkings Tower NFTs either a Water Tower NFT earning HKWATER Daily, or a Gear Tower NFT earning GEAR daily.
The Tower NFTs can be upgraded for a fee with a higher level avatar NFT that is.
The Crypto used in Hashkings alone is up to a count of 8, each having its own earnings mechanic or usage.
The HK Gitbook above answers all your questions you may have concerning Hash Kings.
Hash Kings also has a HIVE content curation service while skewing passive income from P2E games it sort of applies.
By Delegating HP to @hk-curation Hash Kings content upvoted by the curation account gets a higher upvote value. In exchange for Delegating this HP I'm sent BUDS daily.
Owning enough BUDSX generates the owner rewards passively, I'm sure I'm missing something there is alot to unpack with this one.
What makes Hash Kings so special?
Hash Kings commitment to HIVE its users, community, & fellow HIVE projects new / old.
For goodness sakes I made a post suggesting my coin design(s) first for BUDSX & then GEAR.
Just the coins design but still cool.
I'm even credited on the coin description, just awesome.
This outreach goes further then interacting with overzealous fans like myself. Hash Kings dev team has been instrumental to onboarding new HIVE Dapps like Bang Defense, Infernal Coliseum, & more.
You can find the Hash Kings game here
News about an upcoming NFT pack airdrop for Hashkings players to partake in.
They just never stop giving back to the HIVE community, at Hashkings!
We will cap off todays post with a bit of Delectable Dollar Dessert, a Portfolio Parfait, I digress. What I was stammering about, was an awkward transition as to why I wanted to talk about Vanilla.
Vanilla is a Splice, which while called a bean is actually a fruit, a fruit which is native to Central & South America. Humans are irresponsibly stupid & have utterly decimated its natural habitat. An orchid Vanilla is notoriously difficult to cultivate & currently Madagascar half way across the globe is the worlds largest producer of Vanilla.
Above is a great food theorist video going over how Vanilla is in danger of disappearing, as such increasing significantly in value so stock up your spice cabinet.
Portfolios made up of Pokémon cards, hot wheels cars, Lego sets, & Vanilla Beans.
Tell me in 2020-2021 that BTC was a bad call put everything on Vanilla Beans, Lego, & Pokémon.
I would agree with Pokémon, but other then that call you crazy, more a pot head less a profit ☹️.
Another obvious market trend in retrospect was palladium, a car company years ago got into trouble for cheating at emissions tests on their cars.
This led to massive recalls & new stronger catalytic converters had to be installed to meat emission standards.
Fun fact palladium is commonly used in production of catalytic converters & certain older computer parts.
Trippy as this sounds with the difficulty of cultivating vanilla & our track record with causing mass extinction(s) 🤔, fortune may favor the fool with a spice pantry portfolio.
