The Sandbox, Crypto Art, Alien Worlds, The Six Dragons & lot more news!

🎁It’s all about the NFT 🎁

Where the DeFi Summer had many investors staking their tokens for food-related earnings, we’re now seeing an increased interest surrounding non-fungible tokens. These digital assets on the blockchain can be earned by staking tokens, or they are sold in bundles by token curators with passionate communities. Other projects are adding interoperability for NFTs between different applications, or allow users to upgrade their NFTs by burning lesser ones. In my opinion NFTs are very exciting tools that will enhance and create all kinds of experiences in this digital and virtual landscape. These are exciting times as our community is growing! …


$800.000 for one NFT, from Ethereum to Matic, NBA Top Shot in a flow

🚀 ONE RECORD. AND ANOTHER ONE! 🚀

With bitcoin almost hitting a value of $40.000 we can definitely say the blockchain market is on fire. This is good in terms of value, but it’s actually really problematic in terms of network congestion on the Ethereum blockchain. Gas fees are crazy high. However, there are still records being set with the sales of digital collectibles and crypto art. At the same time we’re seeing other projects moving away from Ethereum and embracing layer-2 solutions, which offer faster and much cheaper transactions. As a result other blockchains like Wax and Flow can now have their moment in the spotlight. …


The best wishes for 2021 and may we all learn and master true play-to-earn!

🥂 HAPPY NEW YEAR! 🥂

I’m not big on New Year’s resolutions, but nonetheless I’m bullish on the blockchain gaming space and the Play to Earn Online Magazine as an editorial platform. Like last year I will keep working hard to bring you guys the industry coverage you deserve. There will be more game festivals, more news, more crypto art, more incentives, more collectibles, and exactly the same amount of weekly newsletters. And I couldn’t be more happy to announce the first monthly newsletter sponsor for this year: Our frens from Aavegotchi! So let’s make this a better year for all of us! Bless you! …

🎄 Merry Christmas! 🎄

You’re now reading the last newsletter of 2020. One week from now it’s 2021. We can all agree that this year has been a year to never forget, as our physical world was shackled by government restrictions and a fast spreading virus, our virtual world blossomed. This has been a year with the biggest NFT sales ever, an all-time high for Bitcoin, and new bull market for the crypto industry as a whole, the establishment of DeFi, the boom for crypto art, and between all of that blockchain gaming kept growing. Have a wonderful Christmas, enjoy your time with loved ones, stay healthy and keep building for and believing in a better future. Bless you!
