Tweet of the week

Axie Infinity has started banning accounts that cheat the game. Although they do right and mean good for the ecosystem, some players have expressed their disappointment claiming they didn’t cheat. Usually, a ban occurs when a player is found to use more than one account. This also creates concerns for scholarship providers.



The  CGC|NFT 2.0 online conference was completed successfully with some great sessions. Our manager, George Tsagkarakis (staycalm4now) participated in a media panel around NFTs with John Jordan as a panelist, a known figure and editor at large in the blockchain gaming space since the very early days. The same day, George joined Sarojini McKenna, co-Founder of Alien Worlds and expert in DAOs, for a session all about the most playable blockchain game, Alien Worlds. 

Alien Worlds has 2.2 registered million players.

Axie Infinity reaches 100,000 Daily Active Players.

Axie continues to grow its player base more and more due to a variety of reasons. The profits are a lot. An average team could earn 4000 SLP per month or even double if the account doesn’t lack energy. 

Entities offer scholarships to those who can’t afford a team and those who can, but axies in kilos.

Axies go for $200 minimum, and a decent team of 3 Axies would cost you around 700-1000 USD. With the 100,000 players, Axie also celebrates 100,000 Ronin wallet downloads.

Splinterlands Sold Out Land And Booster Packs

Another game that is growing is Splinterlands. Everything is sold out. A few days ago, the final land sale was finished, so no more land. Try your luck in the secondary markets. 

The Splintershards token will debut in July, featuring a 65 months airdrop to players and card collectors. Not bad.
