Blockchain technology and its growing appeal among gamers worldwide

Blockchain games are gaining popularity on various types of platforms. While the ongoing global health crisis boosted gaming’s rise, current data indicates that 804,000 active gamers were connected to blockchain-based games in July 2021.

The global gaming user base is continually expanding, with blockchain games attracting the most attention. Axie Infinity now has unique active wallets (UAW); however, several other blockchain games will exceed it by the third quarter of 2021.

The rise of the P2E model in games

The paper states that the play-to-earn (P2E) model in games and the expansion of NFTs are now driving the blockchain gaming business. Half of the world’s 1.54 million bitcoin wallets are blockchain games (754,000).

In the number of UAW engagements, seven other blockchain games surpassed Axie in the last month. Alien Worlds on WAX was the most popular blockchain game, followed by Splinterlands on Hive and Arc8 on Polygon, according to DappRadar.

Splinterlands is also a hot topic of conversation

Splinterlands, which began in 2021 with 8,000 daily unique active wallets, now has over 245,000. Although Alien Worlds now has more active individual wallets than Splinterlands, the report still ranks Splinterlands as the most played game.

Splinterlands is a blockchain-based trading card game. The game’s features allow users to play and exchange NFT-based cards — Defi NFT metaverse built on Ethereum, WAX, and BSC blockchains. Players compete for Trillium (TLM) using NFTs. The game recently introduced a new user interface and aimed to add a mission system.

In early October, the game’s daily active unique wallets climbed from 250,000 to 350,000, just beating out Splinterlands as the most popular blockchain game.

Arc8 completes the top 3. It will let users compete against other gamers and win GMEE tokens. Arc8 is being developed by GAMEE, a division of Animoca Brands. With Polygon Studios, GAMEE will help launch the Arc8 platform and its GMEE coin.
