BGD #126: NFT & Play To Earn News – April 5 – 11, 2021

Over the past weeks, more gaming-related cryptocurrencies listed in major exchanges, while plenty of them also created liquidity pools for extra passive income, known as DeFi rewards.

This week, the most popular blockchain game is Alien Worlds, with more than 109,000 players. Upland follows with more than 53,600 while Galaxy blocks sit in third place with almost 27,000. 

While the data is accurate, we don’t have the means to measure other games’ player base, like Crazy Defense Heroes by Animoca Brands (blockchain integration pending), which is believed to have hundreds of thousands of players right now.
