Game-fi is a major on-ramp for initiating new users into the web3 ecosystem. NEAR is leading the way by providing game-fi developers with the platform they need to create. Game-fi refers to any game that is built on the blockchain. This allows for new functionalities where coins you earn can be transferred between games and into real-world assets.
NEAR protocol provides game-fi developers a network with lower hardware requirements, that is scalable for mass adoption, through its sharding mechanism, Nightshade.
NEAR protocol fosters stake farming which allows projects to partner with validators to offer more than one token to delegators in securing the network.
