It is one of the first play to earn games. This game has two cryptocurrencies called Axie infinity Shards(AXS) and Smooth Love Potion(SLP)
This game was built by a company called Sky Mavis. The company has its headquarters in Vietnam.
Here, players need to collect Axies, one type of digital Pets which can be bred, raised and traded in the Axie land.
You need three Axies to start playing the game. Axies are not free, You need to buy them. So you have to invest money to play the game and start earning real money. So you might be thinking why I mentioned it as free to play and earn, right? Actually this game has a scholarship program. In this program, a player who has enough Axies(a manager),hires someone(a scholar) who cannot afford to buy their own Axies , to play the game for them. The earnings are divided between the two.

Widiland(Free to Earn):
Widiland is a NFT game first started in June 2021. It’s a free play to earn game with an upcoming Metaverse. It is based on the blockchain technology. I personally like this game very much and regularly playing at this moment.
The story of the game is about a time when the environment of the earth has seriously degraded and has become unlivable along with a serious shortage of food and energy. So scientists start their search for a new planet in order to find a new home for humanity. They found a distant planet, which is similar to earth, upto 73%,called Widiland(TKE-1012). A small group of people were selected for the mission and sent to Widiland. But at the time of landing, the spacecraft got badly damaged by a geomagnetic storm and they lost connection to earth-based radars.
What players of the game need to do is rebuild the human civilization on Widiland by using the limited tools and resources. They need to use the resources effectively and increase production capacity to expand their territory.
Widiland is a free to play game. On top of that, you don’t even have to put your own money to start earning from the game. When you first create your account, you will get one crop land and 3 in game characters(Farmer,Breeder and Cook) for free. These are not NFT’s. You can start playing with these free characters and you will start getting WSO(Widi Soul) once you complete the Daily Quests and Achievements. To earn more , you can purchase NFT’s from the marketplace using WIDI.
There are two currencies in the game. For purchasing something from the marketplace, you have WIDILAND(WIDI)and for purchasing something in the game itself, You have Widi Soul(WSO)
