This week’s guest on the Cardano NFT Column is a project building a Play-And-Earn (P&E) game that’s reminiscent of Axie Infinity with some key differences: CryptoDino.
The previous guest was a project building a Sci-Fi Roguelike MMO game with the story being driven by the community.
This initiative is a point of reference for NFTs on Cardano and every week or two we will invite someone to answer some questions and give us an update directly from within the Cardano community.
Considering that many of our readers are new to the crypto space, we will have a mix of simple and technical questions.
Cardano NFT project: CryptoDino

Together, we are building an innovative and engaging project for all NFT gaming and dinosaur enthusiasts.
What is CryptoDino? How does it compare to other breeding games like Axie Infinity?
DinoLabs’ CryptoDino is an NFT-based gaming brand that appeals to both gaming and NFT enthusiasts.
Comparisons have been drawn to Axie Infinity, as the properties of CryptoDino’s NFTs are also utilized in gameplay. However, the key difference is that CryptoDino offers a more casual gaming experience, characterized by consistent, easy, and enjoyable gameplay that does not require high levels of skill or risk to advance. In contrast, Axie Infinity places a greater emphasis on player skill and offers a more challenging, multiplayer experience.
The main objective in CryptoDino is to regularly check and maintain a virtual village, with minimal potential for error or loss when sufficient time is dedicated to the game.
The general gaming community is very averse to NFTs and Play & Earn. What is your strategy to reach even the most skeptical gamers?
We understand that the gaming community may have concerns about NFTs and Play & Earn, but our strategy is to focus on the core aspect of the game which is to make it enjoyable and fun to play. We believe that once players experience the CryptoDino Game and see the potential for earnings in $DINO, they will be more open to the concept of NFTs and Play & Earn.
Additionally, we plan to educate and inform our community about the benefits and potential of our NFTs in the game, and how they can enhance the gaming experience. We are also open to feedback and suggestions from our community to continuously improve the game and address any concerns they may have. Our goal is to create a positive and engaging gaming experience for all players, regardless of their familiarity with NFTs and Play & Earn.
What does the future hold? Where do you envision CryptoDino in 2, 5 and 10 years respectively?
Naturally, the future of CryptoDino depends on various factors. But if we were to share our goals and wishes with you, here they are:
In the next 2 years, we see CryptoDino continuing to grow and evolve, with new features and gameplay elements added to the game. We will also focus on expanding our player base and building a strong community of dedicated gamers. We aim to increase the number of players to create a more engaging and diverse gaming experience for everyone.
Moving forward, in the next 5 years, we envision CryptoDino as a leading player in the gaming and NFT space, with a wide range of games and experiences available to players. We also see the potential for CryptoDino to expand into other industries. Our goal is to create a seamless, engaging, and fun experience for players, while also providing them with the opportunity to earn real-world value through their in-game actions.
Finally, in 10 years from now on, we would love to continue to create new and exciting experiences for our players. We see ourselves as a catalyst for mainstream adoption of NFTs and Play & Earn, and help pave the way for a more decentralized, open, and equitable gaming ecosystem for all.
Thank you kindly for your time. Any closing comments? Where can people learn more about CryptoDino?

Our goal is to create a fun, engaging, and rewarding digital collectible game that appeals to a wide range of players. We believe that the combination of blockchain technology, NFTs, and Play & Earn system will create a new and exciting gaming experience for everyone.
