Swords of Blood reinvents play-to-earn with a play-to-own business model
The play-to-earn craze is slowly dying, reveals the poor retention rate of old and new crypto games alike. This is because the earning aspect often takes away attention from the gameplay. Play-to-earn games fail to realize that nothing motivates a gamer more than the game. If the gameplay is not engaging, not even the prospect of high rewards can retain them. What is the point of gaming when it is just another work?
The play-to-earn business model has turned out to be unsustainable.
In addition, they have a high entry barrier, both technically and financially.
- The sign-up process is strange and intimidating for traditional gamers.
- And starter in-game assets are pricey.
For example, downloading a crypto wallet, setting it up, connecting it to the game, and loading it up with in-game tokens and assets are tedious, to say the least. Web 3.0 games should bridge the technical and financial barriers if they want to penetrate the masses. Sub-par games and hollow reward tokens won’t do the trick anymore.
Swords of Blood, being a free-to-play game built in a blockchain economy, addresses these issues. In essence, it is a play-to-own game rather than a play-to-earn game. With fiat payments and easy crypto wallet integration, it allows traditional gamers to dip their toes in Web 3.0 gaming and dive deeper at their own will.
That goes on to explain why Swords of Blood has the broad gaming community’s attention. Moreover, it is led by a team of gaming veterans like James Seaman and supported by leading industry players like Fundamental Labs, Solana Ventures, Master Ventures, Gate.io Labs, Magnus Capital, Flame, and Acknoledger.
