This has been another mind blowing week in the world of blockchain and NFTs. We’ve seen a record NFT transaction with a total value of more than 1.5 million dollars. At the same time several celebrities have entered the space, including Mesut Özil and Lindsay Lohan. Microsoft jumped into the NFT space together with Enjin, while a very cool third-party plugin launched that allows players to earn (or lose) bitcoin while playing Counter-Strike. So much developments this week, it’s unbelievable to imagine that this revolution of digital ownership and user empowerment is just getting started. 😎 — Robert Hoogendoorn

A WORD FROM OUR SPONSOR — WhaleStreet are the DeFi engine that powers NFT economics. On a massive scale. They make huge currency swaps happen — or Whale Swaps as they’re called — with very small slippage costs and without crashing the system. They also engineered the largest ever NFT bundle and fractionalized it into the historic B20 tokens. WhaleStreet is all about upside, so dip into their liquidity pools for rewards, including B20.

Earn Bitcoin Playing Counter-Strike with Infuse

Zebedee has launched a plugin that allows gamers to play for bitcoin. Each player needs to install the Infuse plugin, login to an Infuse server and pay an entry fee using their Bitcoin Lightning Network wallet. This can be a few cents (paid in satoshi, the smallest amount of bitcoin possible). Then the battle for glory and more bitcoin begins! ▶▶▶ Read more

What’s Your Digital Identity in The Metaverse?

For as long as we’ve been chatting in IRC chat rooms or raiding in World of Warcraft, we’ve been creating digital identities within these particular virtual locations. Blockchain technology will allow us to move one identity from one world to the other. Think about logging in with your crypto wallet. What will that look like when we expand this digital identity in the metaverse to a 3D character? That’s where Crypto Avatars comes into play. ▶▶▶ Read more

Axie Infinity Estate Sells for Record $1.5 Million

An NFT collector and game investor acquired nine Genesis land plots in Axie Infinity for the total sum of 888.25 ETH, which was roughly 1.5 million at the time of the transaction. It’s the biggest NFT transaction in history… so far. Because we’ve all seen how fast these record sales get broken. ▶▶▶ Read more

Data Research: Land Whales in the Metaverse

This week I did a bit of research about the presence of whales in virtual worlds. How strong is their ‘power’ within each of these virtual worlds, and how spread out is the ownership among those whales? Did you know that the average landowner in The Sandbox has 0.02 percent of the current total supply? However, the biggest whale in that world owns 7 percent! ▶▶▶ Read more

New DeFi Game Sells $54.000 Spaceship NFT

The concept of yield farming is already a gamification of traditional banking, and now developers are working to truly gamify banking. Alien Worlds already does this to some extend, and now there’s Cometh. You control a spaceship that needs to gather resources from asteroids. The better your ship, the more you’re able to… yield. Cometh works on Matic, lowering the costs of ‘playing’ significantly. ▶▶▶ Read more

Microsoft Brings Game NFTs into Minecraft

If you’ve been watching the crypto market this week, you’d see that Enjin Coin (ENJ) made a significant jump in value. The reason was a nice partnership with Microsoft. They now have a free web game where players can earn an NFT, and then use that NFT to unlock a new quest and character in the MyMetaverse Minecraft server. All this powered by Enjin. How to get started? ▶▶▶ Read more
