Blockchain gaming’s deflated sentiment in Q2 2024

Gather 'round for the quarterly roast... I mean, report on the blockchain gaming sector, courtesy of the Big Blockchain Game List. If you thought Q1 was a rollercoaster, wait till you hear about Q2. Spoiler: the highs were lower, and the lows were... well, you get the idea. First off, all those fancy gaming tokens you were hodling? Yeah, they took a nosedive. Every. Single. One. Out of 42 newly launched gaming tokens in 2024, a whopping five managed to actually rise in value. Impressive, right? The rest? Down 41% on average. Seems like the magic internet money isn't so magical after all. Total investments in the sector also took a hit, dropping 9% to a "measly" $296 million. Just chump change, really. The only thing that went up was the number of deals tracked. Yay for more deals with less money! Pixels, the darling of blockchain gaming, saw a 69% fall in daily active unique wallets (DAUWs) after their chapter 2 update. Apparently, breaking bot accounts isn't the best way to keep your numbers high. Who knew? But it's not all doom and gloom. Immutable zkEVM is still kicking, with over four million active accounts and daily peaks of 350,000 active wallets. Their new launches, Guild of Guardians and Hunters On-Chain, are doing decent too. Not setting the world on fire, but hey, we're taking what we can get. Meanwhile, The Sandbox managed to scrape together a $20 million convertible note. Not bad, but considering their last funding round was $93 million at a $500 million valuation back in 2021, it's safe to say things aren't exactly looking up. Despite all this, the sector is still expanding, with the Big Blockchain Game List adding 157 new titles and hitting an all-time high of 994 tracked games. More games to lose money on, yay! In conclusion, Q2 2024 was a tough one for the blockchain gaming world. But hey, if you're still here, you're either a true believer or you just enjoy the pain. Either way, here's to hoping Q3 has a bit more green in it. Stay strong, and may your tokens be ever in your favor. TL;DR: Gaming tokens tanked, investments dropped, but hey, we got more games. Blockchain gaming, everyone! #BlockchainGaming #CryptoLife #HODL

Chain Switchers: Valeria Games migrates mobile RTS Land Before War to Xai

Another game is packing its bags and moving to a new blockchain home. This time, it's Land Before War from Valeria Games, migrating from Polygon to the oh-so-shiny Arbitrum L3 gaming chain, Xai. All this excitement is happening just in time for the game's launch later this year. If you’ve been keeping track (because who doesn’t love a good blockchain migration story?), you’ll know Land Before War isn’t the first to jump ship. Crypto Unicorns also ditched Polygon for Xai earlier in 2024. Seems like Polygon’s turning into the ex everyone’s trying to forget, right? Sharif Mohammad, CEO of Valeria Games, is all about that seamless blockchain integration life. He claims Xai lets them build their vision “exactly as imagined.” Translation: Other chains made them compromise, but Xai? It’s like the dream date that actually shows up on time and brings flowers. So, for those keeping score: Polygon loses another one, and Xai keeps racking up wins. Can't wait to see which game decides to ghost Polygon next.

Stardust launches games reward platform Starbase

Guess what? Stardust, the US-based web3 infrastructure developer, just launched something called Starbase. No, it's not a spaceship (disappointing, I know), but a shiny new rewards-based social gaming platform. Yeah, another one of those. 🙄 So, what's the deal? Well, they’ve got a lineup of partner games like Nifty Island, Shrapnel, and even the nostalgic Habbo Hotel. Because who wouldn’t want to relive their early 2000s virtual hotel glory days while earning “Gems” through missions and challenges? Through something called Starnet (sounds like Skynet’s less evil twin), you can earn these Gems, which apparently are part of a larger rewards structure. Think players, games, advertisers – everyone’s getting in on the action. It's like a never-ending cycle of digital goodies. 🎁 Mark your calendars for July 17th, because that’s when the first series of games will drop 25 missions. And don’t worry, new partner games will be announced weekly. Because we all know how patient we are. 🙃 Canaan Linder, the CEO and founder of Stardust, is super hyped. He’s on a mission (pun intended) to accelerate gaming with this programmatic decentralized user acquisition protocol. Fancy words, but essentially, play their games, earn rewards, and maybe they’ll hit that billion-player goal. Aiming high, right? Tony Valcarcel from Shrapnel is all in, too. Shrapnel Operators (fancy title for gamers) can earn bonus rewards on Starbase. It's like the crypto version of “play to win,” but with more steps. And then there's Ben Davis from Cambria, who’s all about the disruption. Traditional user acquisition? Pfft, that's so last decade. Cambria is thrilled to join this mission, probably because traditional methods are “ripe for disruption.” Because nothing says cutting-edge like using a buzzword bingo card for your PR strategy. So, are we looking at the future of gaming or just another overhyped web3 project? Only time (and your willingness to jump through digital hoops) will tell. 🚀 Happy gaming and may the Gems be ever in your favor! #Starbase #Web3 #CryptoGaming #Stardust #GemsGalore
