According to the findings of the study, the number of respondents interested in earning Bitcoin while playing games is five times higher than that of NFTs.
A recent survey found that even while some gamers are opposed to the incorporation of nonfungible tokens (NFTs) into games, the vast majority of players are still interested in playing games in which they have the opportunity to earn cryptocurrencies.
The results of a study that polled gamers living in the United States to gauge their exposure to crypto and their feelings toward blockchain gaming were published by the financial technology company Zeebedee in an announcement that was made.
According to the findings of the study, 67 percent of the people polled would be more willing to play free games if those games offered crypto incentives. Among those who took part in the study, 45% of respondents think that it would be beneficial to be able to exchange in-game characters and stuff with other players, but 23% of respondents think that it would have a negative influence. The remaining 32 percent of respondents chose not to comment.
In addition to these findings, the research indicated that 27% of respondents are interested in earning Bitcoin in games, whereas only 5% of respondents are interested in earning NFTs. This would indicate that a greater number of players are interested in acquiring BTC through play-to-earn (P2E) games as opposed to merely acquiring NFTs.
One of the most interesting findings of the poll, in the perspective of Ben Cousens, Chief Strategy Officer of Zeebedee, was that the vast majority of gamers either have a positive opinion or a neutral opinion on crypto incentives. In addition to this, the executive remarked that there was a significant amount of interest in Bitcoin. Cousens provided an explanation that:
“Despite the vast majority of industry attention being concentrated on NFTs, we discovered that Bitcoin stands out as the most popular decentralised asset among gamers when contrasted against other cryptocurrencies, including NFTs,”
According to the findings of the research, the proportion of respondents who do not hold cryptocurrencies that do possess cryptocurrencies is 55%. The remaining balances are composed of either Bitcoin, Ether, or Dogecoin.
In the meantime, a different study that was conducted on July 15 and published on the same day found that one player out of every three is considering utilising cryptocurrency in the metaverse. The findings of the poll also showed that the idea of pay-to-play (P2P) gaming is warmly embraced, with forty percent of gamers expressing an interest in playing and earning within the metaverse.
