Aug 18, 2023 NFT GameFi Weekly

Chart of the Week

DeGods, one of the most valuable profile picture (PFP) projects, has experienced significantly increased trading volume in the past week. The community had a negative reaction to the first unveiling of the project’s new ‘Season III’ artwork, where each NFT was linked to four generative art pieces. In response, the team changed course by opting for a simplified design of ‘Art Downgrade’. They also introduced a game dubbed ‘Points Parlor’, which allows users to stake NFTs and earn rewards in return. Nevertheless, the floor price has plummeted as a result of whales unloading their holdings.
