Last updated on March 9, 2022. Are you following Socratoshi Nakaplato on Twitter?

Play-to-earn (P2E) is expected to be a $10 trillion industry by 2030. The crypto gaming guilds on our list will be a key component of this ecosystem. We will be updating this list frequently and adding new guilds, so you can watch them closely.

Crypto gaming is creating a new economy. Alexis Ohanian, the co-founder of Reddit, says play-to-earn crypto games will be 90% of the gaming market in 5 years. He predicts the shift will come from gamers wanting to be properly valued for their time.

Gamers that are playing traditional games spend time, energy, and buy in-game assets. But they can’t truly own those in-game assets. They don’t make any money for their time in the game or their accomplishments directly. However, crypto gaming is already changing these with its play-to-earn and NFT (non-fungible tokens) mechanics.

Watch the video below to better understand what crypto gaming is (also known as NFT gaming or blockchain gaming):

Since you can make a living with crypto gaming, you need to approach it professionally. Having better tools is the key to better revenue. From lands in a metaverse to a spacesuit in a blockchain RPG (role-playing game), owning NFTs with better in-game features is the dream of all gamers in the space. However, the price of these NFTs can be quite high.

guild (noun): an association of people for mutual aid or the pursuit of a common goal; a medieval association of craftsmen or merchants, often having considerable power; a group of species that have similar requirements and play a similar role within a community

Even if you are a great player, you need to have those NFTs. You can’t reach higher levels or even enter the game in the first place without them. That’s where crypto gaming guilds come into play. Guilds invest in all types of NFTs of countless games. Then they match these NFTs with the most suitable players in their communities. This way, NFTs are leased efficiently, great players are able to reach their potential, and the revenue is split between the player and the guild treasury.

The players in the community are called “scholars”. Besides providing NFTs and tools to players, guilds are focused on educating the players. The player becomes a specialist in a game, more accomplishments, more revenue for everyone. All these come with the power of being an organized community.

Gaming guild is not a new concept. You can find gaming guilds in traditional games as well. While traditional guilds, also referred as clans, are communities of players in a specific game, crypto gaming guilds provide a platform for many games. This gives a level of flexibility. If one game becomes unpopular, the scholars can switch their focus to another game easily. This also makes the guilds attractive for investors.

Even if you don’t like the movie (or book), Ready Player One is a great example to understand metaverse, play-to-earn, and gaming guilds.

The evil corporation in the movie, Innovative Online Industries (IOI), has a gaming guild called The Sixers. The main goal of this guild is to complete the Easter Egg Hunt for IOI so that IOI can take control of the OASIS (a huge metaverse).

While IOI shows us the Black Mirror side of the metaverse future, the guilds below are all creating a positive impact in society and following the path to decentralization.

These guilds are the early products of Web 3.0. They show the power of DAOs (Decentralized Autonomous Organization) and the potential of NFTs and cryptocurrencies. They bring opportunities and prosperity to the people. We talked about “Web Democracy” and the change in our What is Web 3.0? post. Guilds are at the forefront of those economical and sociological changes.

To understand the current state of the gaming guild market, let’s take a look at the market caps and social media followers of the major crypto gaming guilds:
