As the crypto market becomes more and more saturated with different coins, cryptocurrencies are looking for ways to make themselves stand out of the crowd and draw in as many investors as possible. One way to increase the interest that currencies are exploring is the world of blockchain-based games, and Sandbox (SAND), Apecoin (APE), and DogeMiyagi (MIYAGI) are each approaching this in their own unique way.
Sandbox: Gamifying the World of Crypto
Launched in 2011, The Sandbox (SAND) is an exciting virtual world that is built on blockchain technology. Within the SAND metaverse, users can embark on explorations and play mini-games all while accumulating tokens to increase their SAND holdings. Drawing inspiration from the immensely popular Minecraft game, SAND caters to a huge audience, both lovers of the game and those excited by the concept of Play to Earn crypto gaming. As well as their thrilling gaming features, SAND gives token holders the opportunity to build their own games for others to enjoy on the platform, by converting their SAND tokens into LAND tokens. This opportunity for token holders to flex their creative muscles as well as grow their own investment portfolio has led to great success, community engagement, and impressive growth for the currency, and as more and more tokens begin to explore the gaming side of crypto, it seems that SAND already has a head start.
Apecoin: Stuck as Player 2
While Apecoin (APE) has also recognised the possibilities within crypto gaming, they have not opted for their own Play to Earn style game, in the way that Sandbox (SAND) has done. Instead, APE is compatible with a different blockchain-based game, Benji Bananas, where players can opt to use APE tokens in order to access different features of the game. However, APE is not the exclusive token used in this game, as Benji Bananas also have a native token, PRIMATE, which can be used. The fact that APE have been unable to connect with a game that offers them exclusivity is something that hinders them, and they will not be considered a frontrunner with regard to crypto gaming until they secure this.
DogeMiyagi: Ready to Play
DogeMiyagi (MIYAGI) is a brand new cryptocurrency still in its presale stage, which has been attracting considerable attention from the crypto community as hype and anticipation around it builds. Having already raised a significant portion of its presale goals, DogeMiyagi is actively cultivating its community and laying the groundwork for a robust and stable cryptocurrency. Being in its developmental stage enables DogeMiyagi to observe and learn from the paths taken by other currencies like Sandbox (SAND). The MIYAGI team has hinted at the possibility of an immersive ecosystem on the platform that will be available to MIYAGI NFT holders, which will likely contain different gaming options, and there is even speculation that a MIYAGI metaverse could be on the cards.
Gaming and crypto are a match made in heaven, and it appears that the future of cryptocurrency will likely only see more opportunities for gaming and fun ways to earn. Sandbox (SAND), Apecoin (APE), and DogeMiyagi (MIYAGI) have all recognised the possibilities of blockchain gaming, and as more advancements are made in this unique area of cryptocurrency, the community cannot wait to see what moves these currencies will make.
