Advantages of NFTs Games
There are several advantages of Nft games compared to other gaming activities we know of. The first of them is;
1. Gaming Rewards: Nft games provide the opportunity for people to play some digital games and get rewarded with real value for the games they have played. Comparing this with the traditional gaming system, rewards can only be viewed and in most cases, those rewards doesn't have value and gets resetted once the gamer leaves the game.
2. Ownership and control of Items: Nft games also allow users to get an asset or item with a unique identity that cannot be replaced or lost, but is pegged to the player's account such that they have access to them and are in control of those items. In a traditional gaming system, once the provider shuts down, all rewards are gone.
3. Ownership Transfer: Items claimed from playing Nft games can be transferred to another through the marketplaces and the buyer will therefore become the new owner of those collectibles.
4. Uniqueness: Nft games are so unique. Unlike the traditional gaming, Nft games enable players to operate in a decentralized system and earn collectibles cannot be duplicated. This makes it more secured.
5. Investment Opportunity: As stated above, Nft gaming is unique and this uniqueness has has created an investment opportunity where players can store their collectibles as it increase in value day by day.
Disadvantage of Nft games
1. Expensive startup: It is quite expensive to start playeing Nft games and this is not very suitable for people who do not have the capacity to do so. This is unlike the traditional gaming where there are various options to choose from depending on the player's capacity.
2. Art Theft: One of the growing concern about NFT is that hackers are always on their feet trying to make copyrights of the arts, this would be a major disadvantage as collectibles can be stolen at any point.
