We have seen better weeks in the play-to-earn gaming space, and in the crypto world in general. It seems like when the crypto markets are down, the space struggles to attract new players. We do not see massive drops all across the board though, which is a good sign of player retention. Still no sign of Axie Infinity in this top and we see Pegaxy that keeps falling while casual games like Galaxy Blocks, and Jelly Squish seem to keep a steady number of players.

The Otherseed lands still tops the chart this week, but we see the rise of PXN, an anime-themed collection that gives access to a web3 community and tools. The Bored and Mutant Apes are falling a bit in terms of trading volume but floor prices remain high while the overall market is in a downtrend.

The Ethereum Name service domains have seen a spike in trading volume with the introduction of 3 and 4 characters domains and the introduction of emoticons domains.
