Session Name:

Free-to-Play Summit: Ethical Play To Earn Businesses for Decent Human Beings


Play-to-earn gamings (NFTs) face sharp critiques from industry talent and leaders who see the space as scammy, harmful to the environment, and the worst sort of post-capitalist exploitation in games. Those like myself, who have embraced play-to-earn gaming for over two years, see the potential of play-to-earn games and NFTs to expand the accessibility of gaming, to once again bestow value on the art we produce. Walk through the environmental, vaporware, and exploitative concerns play-to-earn games face, and offer potential solutions and paths forward critical to play-to-earn and NFTs reaching their full potential.
