How P2E Games like Etherization are Revolutionizing Gaming with True Ownership & Real-World Rewards


Blockchain gaming has been on the rise for the past few years, thanks to the growing popularity of play-to-earn (P2E) models. P2E games provide a solution to the traditional gaming model, where players invest time and effort without any tangible reward. P2E games allow players to earn real-world value for their in-game achievements. This model is needed because centralized games can shut down, block access, or arbitrarily change the rules, leaving players with no recourse. Decentralized blockchain games like Etherization, on the other hand, offer players true ownership of their in-game assets and a transparent and immutable system.

Etherization is the first P2E blockchain game created in 2016 by Vedran Kajic. It is 100% decentralized, both frontend and backend and even has a decentralized domain, etherization.nft (unstoppable domains) and wethz.eth (Wrapped Etherization, ENS). Unlike other "decentralized" games that depend on centralized servers for some parts, Etherization is truly decentralized. This means that players have full control over their in-game assets and can be confident that their achievements are recognized and rewarded transparently.

In Etherization, players can develop their towns, earn ERC20 tokens (Kuna), and increase ERC20 Kuna (HRK - in tribue to the old Croatian currency Kuna, discontinued in 2023 for Euro) production via tribute, culture, and risk-based mechanics. Each city in the game is represented as a non-fungible token (NFT), which is unique and cannot be duplicated. Players can buy and sell cities on the open market, creating a new economy within the game. The more successful your city is, the more you can earn. This creates a powerful incentive for players to invest time and effort into the game. Layer 2 has been deployed on Polygon and allows for quick and efficient gameplay with low gas fees.
