The “Not-so-new” NFT Gaming Domain Sees a New Sport Now
Blockchains have existed since the latter part of the 2000s, and new applications have been coming in often. Fast forward to the late-2010s, and you could see new innovations in the blockchain domain when the first games hosted on blockchains were created.
Around this time, non-fungible tokens (NFTs) already existed, on which these blockchain games were based.
As the high tide for NFTs came around in the latter part of 2021, blockchain games gained prominence with their ability to make money for players sheerly by playing. The long lockdowns imposed due to the global pandemic added to the growth of these games,
as more people from developing countries became players because of the money-making prospect through the play-to-earn (P2E) feature. There have been a lot of blockchain games based on battling and a few based on sporting and racing. Now, it might be the time
for yet another promising sport-based blockchain game to make rounds, with the sport in focus this time being cricket.
As far as the gaming industry is concerned, cricket has not been a profitable sport for them due to various reasons, ranging from licensing issues and dismal graphics to piracy. So, currently, there has been less competition in the particular field, and
the new NFT-based cricket game might well change the cricketing experience with a play-to-earn mechanism. In this blog, we will see in detail about the upcoming NFT cricket game.
The NFT Cricket Game – A Brief Introduction
The world’s first NFT cricket game, “Meta Cricket League,” is placing its first step with its maiden NFT collection drop event. The developers of the game have already created the NFT marketplace platform for the game called “Jump.trade,” where the NFT drop
event “Super Loot” will be conducted on April 22, 2022. All the platforms and products here are powered by GuardianLink, an NFT applications development firm, which is well-known for its projects on NF security protocols and celebrity NFT marketplaces.
The game promises a lot, with the marketplace website exhibiting an extremely seamless interface and offering an immersive experience for the users. There are almost 25,000 NFT collectibles to be made available at affordable prices, more of which can be
viewed on the Jump.trade NFT marketplace’s website.
What Does the Super Loot NFT Drop HODL?
As soon as the news of the NFT drop event dropped on the mainstream, media experts started speculating on the contents of the Super Loot NFT drop. Many assumptions and guesses soon flooded social media networks, in which some of them have come true. As per
