Revolutionizing the Gaming Industry: A Deep Dive into Decentralized Gaming Platforms

There is a wide range of decentralized gaming platforms. These gaming platforms have various exciting features to attract gamers and crypto/NFTs users. In this edition of the weekly showcase, we will explore some decentralized gaming platforms.


ChainGuardians is a blockchain-based turn-based strategy game. ChainGuardians aims to promote the widespread use of blockchain games by providing fun and entertaining gaming. The game setting is in a post-apocalyptic world in 2070 with “death, decay, sickness, and starvation.

The game draws inspiration from anime, fantasy, role-playing, and superheroes. The ChainGuardians realm consists of numerous worlds based on a distinct blockchain, including Dash, ETH, BTC, etc.

New players can begin playing for free and accumulate non-fungible tokens (NFTs) in the decentralized gaming universe. Every in-game asset, including weapons, armor, and characters, is a unique crypto-collectible NFT. These in-game collectibles are only available in limited quantities and can be traded in secondary NFT markets.

Additionally, players can collaborate to defeat enemy gatekeepers and acquire credits, weapons, power, and other in-game assets that can enhance their character’s strength. 

Also, it paves the way for inactive players to participate in the game. The platform has AI battle features that consider each character’s unique attributes.

ChainGuardians uses the ChainGuardians Currency (CGC) and ChainGuardians Governance tokens (CGG). CGG is the game’s main token. Active players get rewarded with CGG. Also, players can earn CGC by directly playing the game. CGC can be used to buy in-game items and physical merchandise.

DeFi Pet 

My DeFi Pet is a blockchain-based virtual pet simulation game incorporating DeFi and NFT elements. The game draws inspiration from traditional farming games. The game has three key features: “My” personalization, DeFi integration, and a pet-raising game. 

It gives players a play-to-earn experience to encourage mass adoption. My DeFi Pet operates on the KardiaChain and Binance Smart Chain (BSC) networks. All DPET and NFT tokens are cross-blockchain compatible and tradable.

Players can use their earnings from Battle Mode and PVE on both the Kardia and BSC blockchains.

My DeFi Pet shares some similarities with Axie Infinity (AXS). Nonetheless, its unique dynamics allow players to create new characters by purchasing “eggs” to breed their pets.

The game incorporates engaging activities, including collecting, evolving, breeding, battling, and trading pets.

DPET tokens are the game’s in-game currency. DPET is used to purchase in-game items. Players earn DPET as a reward for participating in missions, events, and seasons hosted by the project team.

Players can also get pets by summoning them. Players must spend a certain amount of DPET tokens to summon a pet. Moreover, players can bid on newborn pets at the Marketplace using DPET tokens. Pets are born every hour, allowing players to bid on them. The bidding period lasts for 24 hours only. After 24 hours, any unclaimed pets stay at the auction.

Yield Guild Games

Yield Guild Games (YGG) is a blockchain-based organization that pools funds to invest in in-game NFTs. The development of YGG happened around the COVID-19 pandemic and lockdown in the Philippines. During this period, many people in the Philippines lost their jobs. A rural area of Nueva Ecija close to Cabanatuan City was especially hard hit as the local economy collapsed. Gabby Dizon, a local video game entrepreneur, started giving out his characters in the game Axie Infinity to other residents of his area to help them. These “Axies” were used to win gaming tokens that could be exchanged for local money. During this period, playing Axie became a feasible alternative source of income in some countries. All these led to the development of YGG.

YGG is a DAO that invests in non-fungible tokens (NFTs) for use in blockchain games. The organization allows its members to play Metaverse games and earn rewards. YGG is a pioneer in introducing the concept of Yield Farming from DeFi into play-to-earn games. 

The organization’s foundation believes that digital economies will eventually surpass physical value. As one of the most successful guilds in the space, YGG combines DeFi, NFTs, and gaming to create a new paradigm of employment that its members fully guide.

YGG doubles as a DAO with several subDAOs to ensure optimal performance. These subDAOs are similar to committees within an association. The subDAOs assist YGG in holding the assets of specific games and managing their activities. Each subDAO has its community leads and unique principles. The subDAO is somewhat autonomous while being accountable to the main YGG DAO. Therefore, they carry out their activities in line with the overall goals of YGG DAO. 


The success and growth of Axie Infinity in the Philippines led to the birth of GuildFi in early 2021. GuildFI was established as a self-funded guild in Thailand. In a short while, GuildFi gained recognition in the play-to-earn gaming world. 

GuildFi is an interconnected Web3 ecosystem encompassing games, NFTs, and communities. It focuses on maximizing player benefits and enabling interoperability throughout the metaverse. GuildFi aims to create a seamless connection between the physical and virtual worlds. This way, everyone can easily navigate the metaverse and enjoy the best gaming experience.

Also, it aims to revolutionize the gaming industry by introducing an alternative ecosystem of Web3 games that operate on the blockchain and harness the potential of NFTs.

GuildFi addresses common challenges that players face. It helps players identify accessible games that offer potential rewards. 

The platform places a strong emphasis on guilds, which are groups established by players to support one another. It offers scholarship programs to novice players to help them get started in a particular game.

The Treasury, partner guilds, and NFT funds fund the scholarship program. These programs often provide non-fungible tokens on lease. GuildFi also provides players with in-game tools, such as daily SLP sharing, PvP simulations, team status, and submission card discovery, to enhance their performance. 

DeFi Land 

DeFi Land is a free-to-play, play-to-earn NFT game that simulates blockchain agriculture. The game is built on the Solana network. It offers players the opportunity to own NFT lands and earn DFL tokens. Players can participate in various mini-games and compete with others while crafting, buying, and trading in-game assets and lands. 

DeFi Land offers several DeFi functionalities, such as swap, liquidity, staking, yield farming, and customizable lands.

The game allows players to start playing for free and progress to the Play and Earn tier by competing with other players, trading, crafting, and entertainingly exploring DeFi.

In the free-to-play mode, players can earn XP and unlock rewards by participating in monthly competitions. This incentivization strategy is effective, and the fact that people play DeFi Land without incentives demonstrates the game’s sustainability.

The game has various buildings. Each person’s house serves as their central hub from which they may monitor their holdings. The game’s market lets players trade assets. It is possible to convert cash into seed tokens at the lab’s centralized exchange. Additionally, the game comes with a seed laboratory. In the seed laboratory players can trade their liquidity at the seed laboratory. The bank lets players deposit, withdraw, and stake their tokens. There is a voting palace where players can cast their votes.

DFL token is the governance token that permits voting. It is also the native utility token that can be utilized to purchase, trade, and upgrade in-game NFTs, including tools, animals, and buildings from the marketplace. It is also possible to stake DFL tokens for additional earnings.

All these gaming platforms mentioned above are good ways to explore the decentralized gaming industry. These platforms offer in-game items and tokens that one can invest in. Additionally, they offer rewards for active participants.
