No major change in the top 10 this week, except the appearance of Jelly Squish taking the 10th spot from Defi Kingdoms. Jelly Squish is a casual game and we can see that these attract lots of players with Galaxy Blocks still being in 4th place. Axie Infinity still did not reclaim its spot in the top 10, let’s see if it can make it back. Sunflower Land is still holding its 6th spot and might attract even more players after their token launch on May 9th.

The news and launch of the week was undeniably the land sale for the Otherside, BAYC’s upcoming metaverse project. The land sale drove up the gas fees on Ethereum to insane levels, but it didn’t stop the buyers to ape in the project regardless of transaction costs. In just two days, the collection has already reached an impressive number in terms of the trading volume. This sale also drove the floor price of many collections down. NFT collectors were looking for liquidity in order to get their hands on the most hyped metaverse project of the moment.

The Ragnarok project also saw impressive growth in its first week. Moonbirds are still here, even though if the volume traded dropped by 70% in the past 7 days.

2. Phantom Galaxies Mintpass and Planet Sale

Phantom Galaxies updated their website recently, announced Mintpass rewards allowing holders of certain NFTs the ability to mint new, limited edition NFTs, and also provided details about their imminent Planet sale.

They are using this system to build a whitelist for new, special NFTs, and also tie into their upcoming planetary land sale. This system is designed to reward those who are actually playing and participating in these early alpha releases. – Read more

3. Green Rabbit Hosting Free, Play and Earn Event

We talked not long ago about Green Rabbit’s new social hub and the first alpha release of their racing event. One of the main issues I had with the Hub is that the novelty wore off quickly and there wasn’t much incentive to hang around. Since then, the Green Rabbit team has hosted several, short-term events where random, active players in the game were rewarded with WAX prizes. But now, Green Rabbit is ready to step up their game with a new free to earn event that ties in with their upcoming Apartment sale. – Read more
