Other blockchains, including Solana and Tezos also had their SDKs added to the store, along with the ImmutableX developer platform, for those wishing to build Web3 games on the Ethereum blockchain..

A recent report from DappRadar revealed that lThe players represented almost half (48%) of all blockchain activity in January 2023.
The report claimed that increasing media coverage with announcements and news related to Web3 gaming contributes to an increase in activity.
Sara Gherghelas, a blockchain analyst at DappRadar, previously told Cointelegraph that blockchain gaming is already “a vertical” in the traditional industry. Gherghelas considers that As blockchain technology gains more momentum, it will also bring “more adoption” to Web3 games, which will “become popular.”.
Meanwhile, Illivium co-founder Kieran Warwick told Cointelegraph on Jan. 24 that the “biggest challenge” with blockchain gaming right now is getting “casual gamers” into the market due to the perception that blockchain gaming is “substandard”.
