REVV Racing is a skill-based arcade racing game that is part of the REVV Motorsport ecosystem from Animoca Brands on the Polygon network.

ZED RUN is a horse racing game where players create their stable of racehorses that they use to participate in free and paid races for a chance at earning various rewards. It’s based on real life horse racing betting, except that in this digital case, you get to own a horse NFT, and need to in order to actually play. If you can’t afford one, then you also have the option to borrow for free. There’s a wide range of different racehorses with differing stats and race data to help you figure out their best racetracks. Owners can breed their NFTs and consequently pass genetics that could prove beneficial for winning future races.
DeRace is an NFT horse racing game where you race with tradable NFT racehorses that can be bred as well as rented. Horses differ not only visually but also by other traits, such as rarity and performance, with horse races based on RNG instead of skill. The races take place in hippodromes, which are also NFTs that players can own. By owning a hippodrome NFT, you can earn a percentage of the entrance fees that racers pay. Horses can be bought in the in-game horse marketplace, while holders can also choose to rent their horses and earn rental fees in the process, with 2 different rental types available: rent-to-race and rent-to-breed. It’s also possible to equip your NFT horses with various wearables, such as horseshoes, saddles, and more.
