GameFi is Game+DeFi, which is a mode of integration of Game and Finance. In a word, GameFi presents decentralized financial products through games, which gamifies DeFi's rules. Users’ assets can not only be used as equipment or tools in the game, but in turn, users can also get return and rewards when playing the game. The types of GameFi are similar to traditional games, including role-playing, virtual space, simulation battle, multiplayer building, etc.
