How big is the play-2-earn market?

The play-2-earn market spreads across multiple blockchains. The largest is the Binance Smart Chain (BSC) followed by WAX and Ethereum.

Smaller and emerging blockchains include Polygon, Solana, and Avalanch.

Game tokens on the Binance Smart Chain account for 70% of the total play-2-earn market. It amounts to about $400 million in volume per day. 

Ethereum, WAX, Polygon, Solana and Avalanch account for the other 30%. 

So there is plenty of money to be made. 

However, it must be said that the volume is not equally distributed within a blockchain.

For example, there is often a single game that gets the most attention during a period and is then also responsible for more than 50% of the total volume.

You should also know that the play-2-earn market is growing very quickly. In fact, at the beginning of 2021, the Binance Smart Chain barely had any volume!
