Many online games allow players to customize their characters using skins or other in-game goods, which they can acquire and exchange with other players for in-game cash.

Blockchain games often enable players to swap in-game things for cryptocurrency, which may be converted into real cash. Because of the traceability of the blockchain, this may avoid specific issues with grey markets.
