Some excitement in the gaming charts this week as two new entries vault into the top 10! Pixels hasn’t really had that much of a player surge over the past week. Instead, their appearance on the charts is due to a change in their tech, allowing their custodial wallets to be counted as active players. They are also working to ban bots, a significant issue in any play to earn game.

The other new entry, SuperWalk, is a move to earn game on the Klaytn blockchain. They just implemented their token this past week, and what they call a ‘Proof of Walk’ system. You can read more about it on their Twitter feed.
