Current GameFi Projects

The gaming ecosystem, which has become one of the most valued categories in the entertainment industry, keeps on growing each day. A report called “Gaming Spotlight” on the gaming trends in 2022 has been published by and IDC. More than $22b were spent on mobile games, as stated in the report, and in the first quarter of 2022, the game industry grew by 42% compared to the first quarter of 2020. GameFi projects are among the products in the gaming ecosystem, which attracted the attention of many high-budget venture capital investors. Integrated into the field of the traditional game industry, GameFi projects have made a notable change in the industry with the momentum they have created. Thanks to the new “Play-to-Earn” gaming models created with the blockchain technology, the gaming industry, which has accelerated faster with the effect of the pandemic since 2020, became more important.

GameFi, which means Game and Finance, has a system that allows participants to generate financial gain while gaming. Starting out with the aim of obtaining financial returns, it is a breath of fresh air in the cryptocurrency industry. Avatars, lands, costumes, weapons, golds, pets and NFTs are available in games as digital products. Individuals playing these games can easily exchange their earnings with NFTs or any cryptocurrencies available in games to generate income. Earning passive income by staking or liquidity mining is also possible in these games. In general, investors and developers in GameFi projects generate income by in-app purchases and ads. By the end of 2021, GameFi has a share of a global market of $175b.

Data shared by DappRadar shows there are more than 1.800 GameFi projects aiming to pave the way to a common economy for players, game developers and streamers. Web3 games and metaverse projects have exceeded $750m since August 1 despite the volatile economic situation.
