Players can earn these cards through in-game achievements or activities, and they can also purchase them directly within the game.

What utility does this bring to the product?

By incorporating blockchain and NFTs, "The Harvest" game offers players an enhanced sense of ownership and tradeability. Players aren't just collecting digital cards; they're acquiring blockchain-backed assets that can be traded, sold, or held as collectibles. This integration bridges the gap between gaming and the emerging world of digital assets, providing players with tangible value for their in-game achievements and purchases.
