The gaming industry has undergone numerous technological revolutions over the years, and with Web3, we are on the verge of yet another major one as gaming shifts from free-to-play to play-to-earn.

Online gaming has truly made a name for itself as a cutting-edge aspect of the Internet that will undoubtedly endure and grow for a very long time.

Online gaming communities in the past were only created by individuals who were prepared to pay high fees and go through a challenging setup process. But today, a lot of people are interfering across generations.

Today, many people all over the world use gaming as a social outlet, a source of income, and even as a platform for pursuing a career.

Gamers worldwide are brought together, thanks to online gaming communities that give players a place to interact, exchange ideas, get inspired, live stream, and more.

For Web3 gaming, the more inventive and engaging the game, the stronger and more loyal communities that grow around them. Added to that is the benefit of the Play-to-Earn gaming ecosystem that enables gamers, and not just developers or businesses, to make profits out of gameplay.

Another significant lure for gaming communities is live broadcasting of gameplay. Professional gamers’ live streams can inspire people to create, help them improve their own talents, or are simply thrilling to watch.

Making money is one of the most recent additions to gaming communities. Games played competitively between two or more players are known as “esports,” and they have become a common option for people to seek careers in gaming. Many esports are also played in teams, adding to their sense of community.

The popularity of crypto gaming has increased players’ opportunities to earn money. Playing games like Axie Infinity or Splinterland, players can generate cryptocurrency tokens.

While Web3 gaming communities have been around for a long time, the popularity of competitive gaming has only helped these groups grow.

The development of “guilds,” a phenomenon associated with cryptocurrencies and play-to-earn games, has also sparked in recent times.

Blockchain guilds are associations created for the purpose of participating in, improving at, and earning money from blockchain-based games. There are managers in these gaming guilds who have a sizable number of gaming NFTs.

For a share of the earnings depending on their revenue or pre-established models, these managers lend out their resources to other smaller communities of participants all over the world.

As a result, everyone has a fair opportunity to take part in the metaverse economy because game assets are now more widely available.
