Is Blockchain Gaming Ready for Prime Time?
A Deep Dive on the Web3 Gaming Ecosystem & Games to Watch
👋 Hello everyone, gm, gm, welcome BACK to another edition of Overpriced JPEGs and the next edition of OPJ PRO.
It’s Market Analysis time: a breakdown of the biggest factors impacting the market today and the opportunities within it.
Today, we’ve come to tell you something that, if you’ve been in the space for some time, you’ve heard a LOT.
Not “we’re early” although here at OPJ we still believe we are *very* early and the rough seas we’re sailing through prove it.
No, it’s another common refrain in web3 that we believe might be finally coming true.
Web3 games are going to be huge.
At last week’s Game Developers Conference in San Francisco, amid all the noise of new game engines, AI content and technological break-throughs, there was a lot of real news from the world of web3 gaming. More than enough to convince us (along with a few other major milestones) that web3 gaming is growing up and might just be the leading use case for NFTs in the next year.
In this issue of our PRO newsletter we’re breaking it all down:
The overall web3 gaming market & why we think it’s finally ready for primetime
The $ARB airdrop + Arbitrum gaming ecosystem
The newly announced Immutable <> Polygon partnership
Projects to watch
Three existing projects we’re watching (and playing)
Gaming tokens that matter
Three upcoming NFT gaming projects that should be on your radar
Who to follow to stay up-to-date and in the know on NFT gaming
Feel free to skip to that last section if you just want the prescriptive info we’re committed to providing here at OPJ PRO. Read on for the thrilling perspective.
Let’s jump in!
