NFT gaming has become increasingly popular largely due to Play-To-Earn (P2E). This means that players can earn while they play NFT games online. NFT games are games that use unique digital tokens and collectibles throughout the game as a way to earn. NFT gaming differs from traditional gaming since it enables players P2E.

Accordingly, Real Research — the online survey app, launched a survey on NFT gaming. The survey seeks to find a public opinion on NFT gaming, the reasons users invest in NFT games, and more. Here are the results.


  • 78.25% play NFT games
  • 63.14% invest in NFT games because they Play-to-Earn (P2E)
  • 63.03% have seen profits of $50 or less
