10. CryptoMines (BSC) – 305k

CryptoMines is a SciFi Play-to-earn NFT game built on the Binance Smart Chain. It provides players with a fun Metaverse experience, allowing users to collect Workers and Spaceships and travel through the universe searching for ETERNAL, a mineral allowing players to live another day and make profits along the way.

According to their official whitepaper:

“CryptoMines aims to be the greatest SciFi game on the blockchain while letting their users enjoy being a part of a vast universe, the thrill of strategic gameplay, and of course, earn $ETERNAL.”

Not only is the game deployed on the Binance Smart Chain, but it’s also compatible with Web3 wallets like MetaMask, making it extremely easy for anyone to start playing the game. Furthermore, all assets in the game are player-owned, with the NFTs minted in the ERC-721 standard, allowing the collectibles to be traded on marketplaces and between players.

At the time of writing, CryptoMines is the second most popular dApp on the Binance Smart Chain and the tenth most popular dApp on the market.

It features an ERC-20 token – AXS – used as currency on the Axie Infinity platform. AXS allows you to interact with the platform, buy, sell and trade Axies.

Axies are monsters with specific traits and can be upgraded or traded. Players can use their Axies to battle other players in an arena and earn rewards.

Axie Infinity has some of the best designs from all the Metaverse projects I’ve seen. Their highly active marketplace is a big reason AXS has over $323 million in trading volume alone over the past 24 hours.

With their highly anticipated Axies Battles V2 in 2022, this project could easily double in valuation next year. Worth keeping an eye on.

2. Alien Worlds (WAX, BSC) – 1.58M

Alien Worlds features a decentralized Metaverse connected to Ethereum, WAX, and Binance Smart Chain. It’s currently one of the most popular blockchain-based NFT games on the market, reaching over 1.58 million users last month.

Players can travel to various planets, all separate Decentralized Autonomous Organizations (DAOs). These DAOs receive daily Trillium through the smart contracts, and players can also receive a portion of the TLM if they are a part of that planet’s DAO.

At the time of writing, TLM is trading at $0.21, with a 24-hour trading volume of $195 million. Its circulating supply is 914 million TLM, with a market cap of $195 million.

1. PancakeSwap (BSC) – 4.72M

It is no surprise that PancakeSwap is the most popular dApp in cryptocurrency. PancakeSwap is a decentralized exchange built on the Binance Smart Chain.

Since the exchange is built on the Binance Smart Chain, this means PancakeSwap can offer significantly lower fees when it comes to trading cryptocurrency. Reasonable fees are why PancakeSwap has more users than Uniswap, which has ridiculous fees due to Ethereum’s network congestion.

Similar to Raydium and Uniswap, PancakeSwap has its token called CAKE. Users can use this token to Yield Farm to provide liquidity and trade it on the open market.

At the time of writing, CAKE is trading at $11 with a 24-hour trading volume of $169 million. Its market cap is $2.7 billion, with a circulating supply of 248 million tokens.
