Hasbro, Sega & Emily Ratajkowski Getting into NFTs — Play to Earn #70
Furthermore, we talk about Axie Infinity, Ethermon, our own PLAY token and much more interesting blockchain gaming news!
Interesting developments happen all the time in the blockchain space, but sometimes we don’t seem to appreciate these moments. Ethermon has been around for 4 years already, evolving. Axie Infinity battled through the crypto winter, and is now ready to conquer the planet. Animoca and The Sandbox reward active participants, and lots of projects are ramping up for the next steps in their development. These are exciting times, and the interest of companies like Sega and Hasbro underlines that we’re on the right track. NFTs are here to stay, and they are more than just art. We look at it from a gaming perspective most of the time, while Emily Ratajkowski is making a serious statement through her first NFT drop. This industry is so incredibly diverse. It’s crazy!

Hasbro is the toy company behind Transformers, G.I. Joe & My Little Pony. However, they also own Magic the Gathering.

Axie Infinity is one of the biggest blockchain games on the market, especially when it comes to its play-to-earn economy. Gamers from developing countries are able to improve their quality of life by participating in the game’s economy. Earlier this year they launched their Ronin sidechain solution, and now the Axies are moving over. If you own Axies and play the game, make sure to move them over before the end of May this year. — Read more
I’m not sure what Sega will do, but the fact that the company officially announced their move into the NFT segment stems me positive. Sure, their first NFTs might be a money grab. However, they might as well be experimenting. They are working with Double Jump Tokyo on this, and therefore a move into blockchain gaming is not out of question. — Read more
There weren’t many stories this week that made me laugh, but photo model Emily Ratajkowski sure brought a smile to my face. Richard Prince is an artist whose artworks walk the thin line of copyright infringement. He used an Instagram post by Ratajkowski, made it bigger, and sold it for thousands of dollars. Now the model herself will sell an NFT in which she poses in front of the artwork made by Prince. That’s pure copyright inception! — Read more
Ethermon is a real O.G. project in the blockchain space. They launched in 2017 as Etheremon, a new team took over, revamped the game, and is now bringing it into the 3D virtual world of Decentraland. Ethermon will have its own play-to-earn EMON token as well. — Check it out
