In the future, more people intend to play

According to the latest NFT gaming statistics from Finder, India has the greatest percentage of respondents (34%) who have played a P2E game. With 29 percent, Hong Kong is the next highest country, followed by the United Arab Emirates with 27 percent.

Study: India Leads the World in NFT Gaming, Fewer P2E Players in Western Countries

While the popularity of P2E games looks to be increasing, data from Finder appears to reveal a divide in interest between respondents from Western countries and those from the rest of the world. For example, only 9.4 percent of respondents in the United States indicated they knew what P2E was, despite nearly 14 percent saying they had played at least one game. Only 4.3 percent of Swedish respondents said they have played.

However, according to Finder, which conducted a study to establish the NFT gaming habits of internet users in 26 countries, more respondents in the United States intend to play in the future. Finder commented on the size of the predicted increase in the number of Americans who plan to play P2E games in the future:

"By the end of 2022, that proportion is predicted to have increased 1.8 times, with the percentage of individuals in the United States reaching 16.5 percent."

Only 6% of French respondents had played a P2E game, but that number is predicted to climb to 15% by 2020. Peru (up from 13 percent to 29 percent) and Spain are the other notable movers (8 percent to 17 percent ).

Nigeria is Africa's most powerful country

Meanwhile, respondents under the age of 35 were found to be the most active in NFT gaming, according to the survey. In this area, India once again leads with 41.7 percent, while Germany, Sweden, and France all have less than 10%.

Only respondents from two African nations — Nigeria and South Africa — took part in the research. In Nigeria, 16% of respondents indicated they have played a P2E game and 16.9% said they planned to do so in the future. In South Africa, 10.2 percent indicated they had participated in an NFT game, and 10.6 percent said they planned to do so in the future.
