Play2Earn games in Bitcoin do not want to be left behind

The concept of Play2Earn , or play and win, it is something quite new, but games that generate BTC are not. SaruTobi, for example, of which CriptoNoticias reported its recent launch in the Android and iOS application stores, has been available on Android (in apk version) since 2016, allowing users to generate small amounts of BTC.

However, it has been Ethereum and Binance Smart Chain that have popularized this concept with games like Axie Infinity and Plants vs Undead.

While these games attract many users, P2E games have been around for a long time. Platforms such as Zeebede, are developing tools that allow traditional games, without P2E, to profit in cryptocurrencies. This through a modification that would not change the original game, but that will allow BTC to be generated while playing with payments through the Lightning network.
