The cryptocurrency game Axie Infinity is currently all the rage. For many, it’s a non-exhausting way to earn money and have fun. However, due to its success, other crypto games have been suddenly popping up like mushrooms, promising an easy way to earn cryptocurrency, although not all of them are legitimate…
Before you crack open your piggy bank and spend money on these games, here are some red flags you need to watch out for:
1. The game wants you to invest now, yet the gameplay or game mechanics are not yet available.
These “potential” games let you buy their NFT game currency now, offer discounted prices, and provide you with a sneak peek of the game in the future. They will sometimes rush you into making purchases at a discount, mentioning that once the games are fully released, their costs will double and you’ll have missed out on the discounts.
2. The game developers are relatively new and list the game as their only creation.
Always check who the game developers are. Research their background. You don’t want to shell out money for a game made by some unknown developers and expect a great product.
3. Their business partners are shady.
Newly launched games advertise their business partners on their official websites to make them look legit. Make sure to Google all these partners and check their credibility.
4. Updates are always pushed back or delayed.
The game developers don’t stick to their official timeline for game updates and patch releases, instead, they push them back time and time again. Get out of there while you still can.
With the pandemic, lots of get-rich-quick schemes have been popping up. In crypto gaming, only invest what you can afford to lose.
