Weekly NFT and Gamefi Newsletter
  • The 2022 FIFA World Cup is just months away. To celebrate this event, global football association FIFA is partnering with Algorand to build its very own NFT platform. Named FIFA+ Collect, it will showcase soccer-themed digital collectibles that represent the greatest World Cup game moments.
  • In preparation for the upcoming Merge, NFT marketplace OpenSea announced that it will exclusively support NFTs on the Ethereum proof-of-stake blockchain after the event. It also said it is preparing for any issues that may arise along with the upgrade, and will no longer support existing NFTs on the proof-of-work blockchain.
  • Video game retailer GameStop doubles down on crypto, as it becomes the preferred retail partner of crypto exchange FTX US. This partnership aims to introduce more of its followers to the FTX ecosystem and community, and will kick off the deal by carrying FTX gift cards in some of its U.S. stores. 
  • Recent data from DappRadar and Blockchain Gaming Alliance shows that gaming accounts for over half of blockchain industry activity in August, with hundreds of millions in transactions. While the figures show a decrease from the previous month, it indicates that top games are growing despite the market slump.
  • X2Y2 recorded a +10% increase in sales and -24% decrease in transactions. Meanwhile, OpenSea‘s sales were positive at +23% and its transaction count also increased +23%.
  • The total market cap for GameFi tokens now stands at US$8.97 billion, down -0.1% from last week.
