NFTs are all the rage nowadays. As it evolves in leaps and bounds, we are witnessing the foray of NFTs into the cricketing world. In a first, the NFT gaming marketplace Jump.trade has integrated cricket with NFTs to launch the Meta Cricket League (MCL for short).
Since its launch in April 2022, the MCL has become home to a community of players who participate in tournaments with unbridled enthusiasm. Selling out its drop of 55,000 NFTs in just 9 minutes, the MCL is a pioneer in “hit and earn” gaming. The game even scored a sponsorship from Flipkart for their Grand Slam Tournament’s Finale!
How it works
The rules of the game are simple enough. As with any NFT game, you buy NFTs in order to play. But what sets the MCL apart is that you need only purchase 2 NFTs - one batsman and one bowler. Of course, you always have the option of buying more players from a variety of classes along with powerful signed bats to boost your score. This is essentially a PvP game where you are matched with an opponent of similar strength.
Playing as the batsman, every run gives you JT points and every wicket costs you runs. Every JT point you get is translated into an equivalent amount of USDT, allowing you to hit and earn. The game also runs a series of tournaments which are played on a daily basis. Additionally, you can buy and sell NFTs on their NFT marketplace, letting you turn your hobby into a hustle.
Being the world’s first play-to-earn cricket NFT game, the MCL has proven itself as a major player in the gaming industry. With updates that cater to the player’s every need, the game promises to be a favourite among gamers.
