Another option to get involved with NFTs are P2E (playing to earn) games. There are many options around, but Bitcrush Arcade (a hybrid BSC based gaming platform) is has recently caught my attention. Their hybrid approach allows for centralized gameplay utilizing a non-custodial live wallet
So when you add funds to the live wallet to play, those are still your funds. If the sever goes down, or taken offline etc, you can claim your funds directly from the smart contract.
It’s a balance between the super quick server and the slow blockchain. Pretty complex but it’s a great solution worth checking out and investing some time on it. More info:
