GameFi Tokenomics and P2E Asset Holding Trends

With GameFi players have custody of their own assets. Users can start creating profits from buying and selling items.

NFT NFTCollection nftart nftcollector Crypto

Token’s value depends on the growth of Daily Active Users (DAU) and the burn/minting ratio.

NFT NFTCollection nftart nftcollector Crypto

The utility is correlated with the burn/minting ratio.

NFT NFTCollection nftart nftcollector Crypto

GameFi has become the top 4 in the NFT industry by Market Capitalization.

Investors are holding P2E NFTs for a mid/long period.

NFT NFTCollection nftart nftcollector Crypto

GameFi refers to Gaming Finance, also known as Play-to-earn. Basically, P2E are video games on the blockchain, where users can earn in-game tokens that can be exchanged for FIAT or other cryptocurrencies/digital assets.

NFT NFTCollection nftart nftcollector Crypto

Currently, most of them are on the Ethereum and Solana networks.

NFT NFTCollection nftart nftcollector Crypto

Unlike conventional games, in a P2E video game, the in-game assets are owned by the players, not by the company.

NFT NFTCollection nftart nftcollector Crypto

This is one of the main reasons why GameFi is revolutionizing the gaming space.

NFT NFTCollection nftart nftcollector Crypto

For example,

most of us played Counter-Strike or Fortnite, when you got an item dropped or bought a skin for your weapon you depend on the company’s existence.

NFT NFTCollection nftart nftcollector Crypto

Not only in the aforementioned games but in all traditional games, you rely on the company: GTA, FIFA, LOL, etc.

NFT NFTCollection nftart nftcollector Crypto

What I mean by dependence is that the custody of your assets depends on the studio and they can do whatever with them.

NFT NFTCollection nftart nftcollector Crypto

Additionally, most casual players do not make “real” money from selling their assets or creating new items

NFT NFTCollection nftart nftcollector Crypto

there are only a few community markets to make profits from in a conventional game, for instance, the Steam community market.

NFT NFTCollection nftart nftcollector Crypto

Tokenomics Since players can earn tokens, create their own digital assets

(some P2E have some kind of “breeding” systems), and have custody of them, new economies are developing in the digital world.

NFT NFTCollection nftart nftcollector Crypto

This is where “Tokenomics” takes place, it makes reference to a token that has a supply and demand but is also useful for players and investors in the game’s environment, in other words, an economy based on tokens on the blockchain.

NFT NFTCollection nftart nftcollector

Most GameFi platforms have two or more tokens that help their economy to grow.

NFT NFTCollection nftart nftcollector Crypto

Sometimes one is a governance token or used for breeding; the second one is used like a “FIAT Scheme,” where the main purpose is to spend it or use it to upgrade your in-game avatar.

NFT NFTCollection nftart nftcollector Crypto

Here are some parameters to consider when you’re performing due diligence for a P2E video game token:

NFT NFTCollection nftart nftcollector Crypto

Market Cap & Supply

The market capitalization will show you the total value of the token in USD.

NFT NFTCollection nftart nftcollector Crypto

This metric is based on the pool of capital that has been invested in the project.

NFT NFTCollection nftart nftcollector Crypto

It is calculated by multiplying the circulating supply by the token’s current price. Looking at these metrics will give you a better understanding of the future value of the token.

NFT NFTCollection nftart nftcollector Crypto

A high token price doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s more valuable than other tokens in terms of market cap.

NFT NFTCollection nftart nftcollector Crypto

For example, the “A” token has a price of 1 USD with a circulating supply of 100 tokens, some might say that is extremely low compared with “B” which has a price of 2 USD and a circulating supply of 25 tokens.

NFT NFTCollection nftart nftcollector Crypto

Market Cap = Token’s price x outstanding tokens

MARKET CAP

A token -

1 USD x 100 tokens: 100 USD B Token - 2 USD x 25 tokens: 50 USD

NFT NFTCollection nftart nftcollector Crypto

“A” is more valuable because of its market cap. So, these metrics could help you to determine the growth potential of the cryptocurrency and whether or not it’s safe to invest in.

NFT NFTCollection nftart nftcollector Crypto

The most common ways to divide the size of a token’s market cap are:

Large Market Cap:

Greater than 10B Mid Market Cap: 1B

to

10B Small Market Cap:

Less than 1B

NFT NFTCollection nftart nftcollector Crypto

Independent of its market cap, it’s important to note that most cryptocurrencies' market cap can fluctuate dramatically due to their volatility.

NFT NFTCollection nftart nftcollector Crypto

Here are two good websites to take a look at the Market Cap & Supply of a token: CoinGecko and CoinMarketCap.

NFT NFTCollection nftart nftcollector Crypto

Most tokens are listed on these websites but if you’re looking for a token not yet listed.

NFT NFTCollection nftart nftcollector Crypto

ou should only consider the circulating supply because tokens can also have a lock-up or burning wallets,

NFT NFTCollection nftart nftcollector Crypto

which are tokens held in a smart contract/wallet, which are not circulating in the market.

NFT NFTCollection nftart nftcollector Crypto

Token

Cryptocurrencies have two different economic setups, inflationary and deflationary.

NFT NFTCollection nftart nftcollector Crypto

Inflationary token: In GameFi, as we mentioned before, one of the two tokens can be used as a “FIAT Scheme.”

NFT NFTCollection nftart nftcollector Crypto

Meaning that a token is used in an inflationary way, in other words, the inflationary token does not have its maximum supply capability on the market’s circulation and will be released back into circulation by the players when playing the video game.

NFT NFTCollection nftart

like in the “real world,” where the central bank prints money and inflation occurs, the same happens here in the virtual world, the only difference is that the community is “printing” (minting) and not a central institution (central banks).

NFT NFTCollection nftart nft

Sometimes a token can be uncapped, meaning that the token has an unlimited supply, so as long as the players keep playing the video game, the token will be continuously minted by the users.

NFT NFTCollection nftart nftcollector Crypto

Deflationary token: A deflationary token is an opposite of an inflationary token.

NFT NFTCollection nftart nftcollector Crypto

Perhaps the most important difference between the two of them is that the deflationary token at the moment of its launch has a maximum supply capacity;

NFT NFTCollection nftart nftcollector Crypto

all of the coins don’t necessarily have to be released to the market on the launching day.

NFT NFTCollection nftart nftcollector Crypto

Furthermore, some tokens may have a decreasing supply over time through burning mechanisms, most of the time the agency employs a burning wallet, taking a percentage of the supply out of the market at a determined time.

NFT NFTCollection nftart nftcollector Crypto

Allocation

When a project is about to launch there is a key aspect to check: allocation. The allocation will determine how many tokens will be distributed between the core team and the private investors in the project.

NFT NFTCollection nftart nftcollector Crypto

Each project has its own allocation models, there is no one-size-fits-all model. Oftentimes,

the core team (founders) takes around 5% to 20%.

NFT NFTCollection nftart nftcollector Crypto

private investors can range from 3% to 32%, this depends on how much is the team looking to fundraise for the development of the project.

NFT NFTCollection nftart nftcollector Crypto

Only 10% to 20% percent goes to the circulating supply which is where conventional people will start trading, eventually, all the supply will be released

NFT NFTCollection nftart nftcollector Crypto

the remaining percentage goes to two wallets, one to lock up the funds and the second one for operative uses: marketing, promotion, and general operations.

NFT NFTCollection nftart nftcollector Crypto

You have to double-check if the wallet has some tokens yet to be released or check what its purpose of it is for the project’s future.

NFT NFTCollection nftart nftcollector Crypto

Utility and growth

The value of the token also depends on the utility and growth of the Daily Active Users, also known as DAU.

NFT NFTCollection nftart nftcollector Crypto

There is a correlation between DAU and the token price. If a token has a lot of players, which means that there is a high ratio of DAU- token mint/burning

NFT NFTCollection nftart nftcollector Crypto

if it does not have enough utility, the price of the token will eventually fall because the mint and burn ratio puts high inflationary pressure on the coin.

NFT NFTCollection nftart nftcollector Crypto

The most common token utilities that decrease inflationary pressures in the P2E ecosystem are:

Breeding Parts upgrades Staking Liquidity Pool

NFT NFTCollection nftart nftcollector Crypto

So, as long as the coin has utility and the burning/minting ratio maintains steadily, it will decrease its inflationary pressure.

NFT NFTCollection nftart nftcollector Crypto

Some projects may use capital (profits) to pump the coin, this is considered a red flag because it is not sustainable in the long run and instead they use those funds to keep building/developing for the good of the project and use it to create an artificial price.

NFT NFT

For example, Imagine that the United States government begins to subsidize gasoline (a short-term solution).

NFT NFTCollection nftart nftcollector Crypto

They allocate an amount to carry out this operation. As soon as this fund runs out... the cost of fuel increases exponentially, which will result in many unhappy consumers.

NFT NFTCollection nftart nftcollector Crypto

DAU's correlation with the daily earnings and its token value shows some GameFi token examples that are currently in the market and how its DAU is correlated with the token price and its current utility.

NFT NFTCollection nftart nftcollector Crypto

High DAU and low prices are a result of inflation pressure caused by the burning/minting ratio.

NFT NFTCollection nftart nftcollector Crypto

So, if the ratio is high, eventually the coin will drop because of its lack of utility (burn mechanisms).

NFT NFTCollection nftart nftcollector Crypto

Some collections prefer to have low price and high DAU and a high burning/minting ratio for a short period of time because it allows them to have more circulating supply and

NFT NFTCollection nftart nftcollector Crypto

after a period of time, the circulating supply will drop with the new burning mechanisms: skins, upgrades, lands, features for your NFT, etc. and the price might eventually stabilize.

NFT NFTCollection nftart nftcollector Crypto

Having low daily earnings and low DAU, is not the worst-case scenario at all, because most of the time when this happens, NFT collections are relatively cheap compared with other projects.

NFT NFTCollection nftart nftcollector Crypto

In order to have a better metric of the collection’s token performance, you should consider other external factors like:

Macroeconomy tendencies: cryptocurrency market, stocks market, NFT general sentiment, current game tendencies, etc.

P2E NFTs market overview

The video game industry is attracting new people to web3 because of its enjoyability and its utility.

Play-to-earn video games have become 4 highest in Market Capitalization of the NFT industry with an estimated valuation of 1.69B dollars.

NFT NFT

Due to the explosion of GameFi in 2021 and the recent popularity of P2E, the industry is

3rd highest in volume with an estimated volume of 3.29B dollars.

NFT NFTCollection nftart nftcollector Crypto

Holding trends

To determine the holding period trend in the P2E industry, we analyzed 18 P2E collections on the Ethereum network to find a holding pattern.

NFT NFTCollection nftart nftcollector Crypto

Holding Period Per Collection shows the 18 collections and their holding periods.

NFT NFTCollection nftart nftcollector Crypto

Holding the asset between

3 months to a year is the most common. Holders are investing for the mid and long-term.

NFT NFTCollection nftart nftcollector Crypto

This is because of the passive income and the probable appreciation of the asset in the future.

NFT NFTCollection nftart nftcollector Crypto

Comparing the GameFi industry and the BAYC holding period distribution we have some similarities:

Almost no quick flippers (intraday traders) Less than 4% sell their NFTs in a 1 - 7D range.

NFT NFTCollection nftart nftcollector Crypto

1M - 3M traders: Midterm investors Most investors are looking to hold their assets for 3M+

NFT NFTCollection nftart nftcollector Crypto

Bored Ape is a trusted and well-known project with a successful track record.

NFT NFTCollection nftart nftcollector Crypto

Investors are holding it because of the current value and its future utility and the social recognition it might have, it’s like the Rolex of NFTs.

NFT NFTCollection nftart nftcollector Crypto

On the other hand,

GameFi is like an Apple Watch, not that fancy but very usable.

NFT NFTCollection nftart nftcollector Crypto

It brings fun to users and passive earnings, this is why we are seeing similarities with BAYC, “same watch but different utility.”

GameFi ROI

So, how can I calculate my ROI in p2e? You should always consider:

Gas fees from buying the NFT on a marketplace. Stacking and unstacking, gas fees.

NFT NFTCollection nftart nftcollector Crypto

DLV ratio. DLV means the Daily Value to Liquidity Ratio. It is calculated by: (Daily Value of Supply) / liquidity

The higher the DLV is, the more volatile the asset.

NFT NFTCollection nftart nftcollector Crypto

Liquidity Market Cap/TLV

Market Capitalization to Liquidity Ratio. If the result is above 1: the token is overvalued. If the result gets closer to 0 it means that it has room to grow.

It is calculated by:

Market Capitalization/liquidity

Conclusions

So, GameFi comes with the Web3 mentality, a videogame, and a marketplace for and by the community.

NFT NFTCollection nftart nftcollector Crypto

where players can earn and trade tokens for whatever digital asset they want. And most importantly, have custody of their own assets.

NFT NFTCollection nftart nftcollector Crypto

t’s worth mentioning that you should always see GameFi as a “game” which you can make profits from but don’t look at it as a job,

NFT NFTCollection nftart nftcollector Crypto

why? Because games are made to be enjoyed and that should remain their main purpose. Recently, people have been getting rekt because they think that the main purpose of GameFi is to feed their pockets, which it's not.

NFT NFTCollection nftart nftcollector Crypto

If you’re a top player and you get rewards from it, good! But if not, take this into consideration.
