Vorto Games hook video game players further by introducing the “play to earn”model to allow gamers to generate NFTs through playing games. Adding NFTs was a natural progression since in its popular video game “Hash Rush” players mine digital goods and crypto.
Players can trade their NFTs with other Hash Rush Gamers and users within the Vorto Network. In this platform, gamers can trade their digital wares with each other outside of the game.
Traditionally, video game items such as a shield or a sword are just part of the in-game player experience as an upgrade to the player’s inventory or arsenal. Video game items are transformed into digital real-life assets within the Vorto Network. Now players can buy, sell and trade items with other gamers as NFTs. NFTs extend the gaming experience by facilitating a post-game commerce.
To entice players to cash-out their NFTs through Vorto Network instead of other digital assets marketplace, the platform will offer lower transaction fees. To make Vorto Network even more sticky, the platform will bring in other studio and gaming titles.
As it stands, gaming is already a billion dollar industry so how does the emerging play-to-earn movement change the dynamics? We just have to look at the success of Axie Infinity which drew inspiration from Pokemon and CryptoKitties. A new mini documentary follows an unlikely group of players in a rural city in the Philippines; a mother, an entrepreneur, a recent college graduate, a pedicab driver and an elderly married couple. The play-to-earn model enticed these unique set of players looking for opportunities to put food in the table.
Vorto Games will be renewing Hash Rush sometime in July; the renewal will coincide with the launch of Vorto Network.
