The blockchain gaming industry grows big, and while big players are gearing up to join, we have another week with many developments from various sources.
In terms of data, for this week, the number 1 game remains Splinterlands with 7.3k users. The second place belongs to Upland with 6,2k users, and Crypto Dynasty follows right after with 3,7k users. The absence of Ethereum games in DappRaddar listings is noticeable, with only Axie Infinity (5th with 2.3k users) and CryptoDozer(10th with 1.2k users) in the top ten list across all blockchains. This situation will continue unless ETH 2.0 arrives, hopefully somewhere in 2021.
On the other hand, based on data from NonFungible, Sorare users have traded over 101,326.63 USD the past seven days, and it’s now officially the number one in trade volume. Somnium Space follows with 88,301.12 USD. The digital art platform Super Rare is third with 73,871.97 USD, followed by CryptoKitties and Decentraland with 50,155.03 USD and $46,568.03, respectively.
Of course, this week, Axie Infinity nailed it with the Love Potions. LPs’ speculative price raised so much that the Uniswap volume saw a 35,000% increase, from 220$ to 768,000$. Not only that, but a single Co-owned Axie is now valuated at 113.52692 ETH on Niftex.
Without further ado, let’s have a quick look at some this week’s news.
