The popularity of Decentralized Finance (DeFi) was followed by the rise of non-fungible tokens (NFTs), and to the surprise of many, NFTs came into the spotlight and now remain in the spotlight with the highest sales in early January 2022.

Although 2021 was the year of NFT, GameFi apps have overtaken DeFi in terms of popularity among users. According to DappRadar, Bloomberg compiled:
“Nearly 50% of active crypto wallets connected to decentralized applications in November were dedicated to gaming. The share of wallets associated with decentralized finance or decentralized DeFi applications has fallen to 45% over the same period after several months of dapp use.”
The “Play to Make Money” on the blockchain (P2E) Axie infinity has taken the leap and sparked a gaming frenzy that is expected to continue throughout 2022. Sleeping giants will dominate the sector.
Let’s take a look at five blockchain games that could make waves in 2022.
The inspiration for DeFi Kingdoms came from a simple beginning – a passion for investing that drew developers into blockchain technology. DeFi Kingdoms was born as the imagination of investing in the liquidity pool, where the gardens in the game represent the literal and figurative gathering of tokens and the restoration of the liquidity pool.
As shown in the game, the investors own a fraction of their stake in the LP in an area full of flowering plants. By linking growth with DeFi protocols into the play and earn model, DeFi Kingdoms introduces a new dimension to game play.

Built on the Harmony Network, DeFi Kingdoms was the first project on the network to top the DappRadar charts. This could be due to the influx of people interested in both Defi and blockchain games, or it could be due to the recent increase in the JEWEL utility token in the game.
JEWEL is a token that allows users to purchase NFT buffs in-game to boost basic stats. It is also used to extract cash to enable users to earn more gems through effort.

JEWEL is also a governance token that gives owners a voice in the project’s growth and development. Over the past four months, the price of the token rose from $1.23 to a record high of $22.52. At the time of writing, JEWEL stock is down nearly 16%, trading at $19.51.
With an increase of about 1,487% from a modest start of $1.23 four months ago in September, the price of JEWEL token has risen by about 165% in the past month alone, according to CoinGecko data.
Guild of Guardians is one of the most anticipated blockchain games of 2022 and is built on ImmutableX, the first two-team solution built on Ethereum and focused on the NFT. In order to provide more access, it will act as a free RPG to simulate P2E mechanics.

Similar to blockchain games like Axie Infinity, the assets of the Guild of Guardians are tradable. The project appears to be gaining the attention of many players and investors as the sale and launch of tokens by the founders of NFT has brought in nearly $10 million in volume.
The Guild of Guild Tokens (GOG) launches its in-game token in October 2021, and the in-game ERC-20 tokens are known as “pearls.” Gems are the main features of the game, such as in-game NFT generation and market interaction, which can be earned while playing.

The Guild of Guardians token has performed well over the past month, climbing to an all-time high of $2.81 after the launch. While the token is down more than 50% from its all-time high, at the time of writing, some community members are eagerly awaiting the opportunity for efforts and pools of liquidity that tend to help stabilize the coin. the prices.
Galaxy Fight Club
Imagine taking a Proof (PFP) NFT photo and turning it into an avatar to fight other fighters in a galaxy far away? Galaxy Fight Club (GFC) is a blockchain game that transforms from a collection of 10,000 avatars into the first PvP fighting game for multiple brands and platforms where players can fight with their collection of avatars.
With a focus on interoperability, JRC clearly values its native fighters, but allows other avatars to fight for the opportunity to earn rewards.
