The NFT platform Balthazar, supported by crypto investment giant Animoca Brands, shared survey results on people going full-time on blockchain gaming.
With play-to-earn (P2E) gaming rising to prominence, people are looking for ways to profit from the leisure activity, and possibly even make it a livelihood.
According to an insights report, the NFT gaming platform Balthazar posted a survey taken by over 1.1k respondents. The survey included questions on NFT gaming, and if people would replace their jobs with play-to-earn activities. It was filled out mostly by people from the Philippines.

The results show that 32% of respondents would go all-in on blockchain gaming, while 59% of them would dabble with P2E games while still working their regular jobs.
However, more than half would need to earn more than $1-20/day from NFT gaming to quit their jobs, while others would need an average salary of $42 to fully commit to play-to-earn.
CEO of Balthazar John Stefanidis spoke on the results of the survey, stating:
"I’m not surprised by these findings because, just like us, our community is incredibly excited about the future in NFT gaming and the potential earning opportunities offered through Balthazar. They love play-to-earn games and many are ready to quit their other jobs to play NFT games instead, as they could potentially be earning the same, if not more from playing NFT games."
In fact, according to the results, more than 70% of the respondents have previously used income from blockchain gaming to pay for basic needs and education, with 69% of Balthazar’s community using the platform as its main revenue source.
Back in December 2021, the play-to-earn industry went off the charts by the end of the year, with $2.32 billion in revenue raised from NFT gaming.
