Blockchain Gaming Digest

Welcome to the BGD #133: NFT & Play To Earn News, May 24-30, 2021.

Welcome to another Blockchain Gaming Digest, your source for weekly news in the blockchain gaming industry. 

A lot of things took place this week. Including Sales from Ember Sword, Guild of Guardians, and Sandbox, all sales had a few problems with Ember Sword to be a total mess. This is quite normal though for NFT sales, the demand managed to break Polygon’s RPC and other third-party services. Ember Sword announced the next sale would continue to have a 50% discount to make up for the users.

This week’s most-played games in terms of users are:

  • Allien Worlds with 327k users.
  • Upland with 64k
  • R-Planet with 36k.

  • Axie Infinity follows with $6.30 million.
  • Guild of Guardians comes third with 2.07 million.
  • Keep in mind we don’t currently track Ember Sword data.
