In recent months, the cryptocurrency market has welcomed more and more Play to Earn in its ecosystem. As their name suggests, “Play to Earn” has the particularity of allowing their players to win cryptocurrencies in exchange for their presence and contribution to the development of the game.
The world of play to earn includes not only a part of video game players, but also investors who speculate on this still very recent market. To date, several dozen Play to Earn are available on the market which, for the most part, are developed on the Ethereum blockchain. Today we will introduce you to those in whom we see the most potential and those who have already proven their place in this environment.
Note that this ranking is only for personal reasons and is in no way investment advice, it is up to you to carry out your own research in order to establish an opinion of the most objective possible. Top 5 – Mist (under development)
Mist is a new open-world action and adventure RPG/MMO, in which players will have to complete numerous quests and survive against the monsters and strange creatures found there. At the beginning of the game, you will have the choice between 5 different classes: the Crusader, the Enchanter, the Ranger, the Shapeshifter or the Witch Hunter.
Each of these characters has different abilities, strengths, and weaknesses. For example, the crusader is a great warrior with a sword, shield, armor, and abilities specific to close combat. This makes him an ideal character to immerse yourself in the heart of a battle.
Your main goal will be to travel through this universe filled with fierce creatures by completing many quests, challenges and thus become the best explorer in this world. As in all the Play to Earn that we are going to present to you, NFTs (non-fungible tokens) are available in different forms. On Mist, NFTs are similar to collectible cards that give unique abilities and abilities to their holders.
In addition, you will also be able to earn MIST tokens, the game’s native cryptocurrency, directly by playing Mist. This currency will be used to buy and trade NFTs on their marketplace. Of course, users will also be able to sell them on trading platforms like “LBANK” or the MIST has recently been listed.
Several possibilities are available to players to win:
- Killing monsters;
- Complete quests;
- Sell items/NFT;
- Staking / Farming.
Mist will most certainly be the subject of an article entirely dedicated to it, so stay informed on our Twitter: @coinacademy_fr – Official trailer of the game Mist – Top 4 – My Neighbor Alice (in development)
My Neighbor Alice (MNA) is a multiplayer build Play to Earn, inspired by the famous game “Animal Crossing”. On MNA, each player has his own plot of land, on which you can build your own house, animal breeding and thus delimit your property with barriers. As mentioned above, MNA is a multiplayer game where all players meet on the same island, counting a large number of virtual plots. That is, you can potentially establish your habitat more or less close to another player.
These pieces of islands are actually collectible NFTs, which you can trade, buy and sell on the game’s market place. Indeed, the more rare objects your land contains, the more it will sell at a high price on the market. You can also choose to keep them so that they take on a certain value. My Neighbor Alice is a play to earn with high potential that promises to attract the curiosity of a large number of players and investors alike.
Note that the game release is scheduled for spring 2022, but this does not prevent the community from investing and speculating on it. To tell you, the cryptocurrency ALICE is positioned in the 5th place of the “Play to Earn” on coinmarketcap, with a total capitalization of about 250 million dollars.– Official gameplay of the game My Neighbor Alice – Top 3 – Alien Worlds
Alien Worlds is a play to earn combat and mining set in space, in which you play as a space explorer who aims to exploit as many resources as possible on different planets.
To date, more than 6 planets are available: Eyeke, Kavian, Magor, Naron, Neri or Veles. Each of them has a different setting and atmosphere. Nevertheless, these planets all have one thing in common, they are full of Trilium (TLM). TLM is a valuable mineral, but also the native token of Alien Word. It can be traded on different exchanges, such as Binance or Gateio.
At the beginning of the game, you will be equipped with a single mining tool, the “Standard Shoval” (displayed above). With the help of the latter, you can go to the planet of your choice and thus start mining Trilium (TLM). Note that the Standard Shoval is not just a simple tool, but also an NFT card that you will be able to collect, trade or sell on the market. This is also the case for all the tools available in Alien Worlds. Your goal will be to mine as much Trilium as possible, then exchange them for much more efficient mining tools and finally, harvest more minerals. Of course, you can also invest in one or more of these tools (NFT) from the beginning, to start directly on “the hats of wheels”.
Especially since by mining TLM on a planet, you have a certain percentage chance of finding NFT cards more or less rare. As you will have understood, these cards can be used to extract Trilium on a plot of land, or be sold on the market. To date, some of these NFTs sell for a few tens of thousands of dollars.
After collecting a certain amount of TLM, you can, if you wish, stake a part of it on a planet. By doing this, you will gain access to much more attractive mining rates, in addition to being able to participate in the development of the planet in question, but also the game.

Now let’s move to 2nd place in our ranking, with the new Play to Earn named Illuvium. Although it is in the development phase, its unique style and particularly attractive graphics say a lot about it.
Illuvium is an RPG set in a whimsical world filled with strange creatures. Indeed, more than 100 species of “Illuvials” (creatures of the game) are available in this universe and each has different abilities, classes and powers. You will play as an explorer with the objective of hunting and capturing as many of these creatures as possible in an “open world”, in order to build a team capable of eliminating all your opponents in a specific “combat mode”.
Illuvium players will be able to win chips $ILV as a reward, hence the principle of a “Play to Earn”. For this, it will be enough to carry out quests in the open world, win fights or participate in tournaments with big rewards at the key. In addition, holders of $ILV, illuvium’s native currency, will be able to vote on different proposals in order to improve the game and the player experience.
It is the first game of this “style” that we see appear in the world of Play to Earn and it is also this originality that now intrigues several tens of thousands of Internet users, although it has not yet been released. Indeed, Illuvium will only be available from the third quarter of 2021, during an “Open Beta” accessible to all. In the meantime, developers and admin’s have set up a community discord, in which they share their new creations, such as creatures, settings, powers or exclusive information.
