No change in the top five spots for active gamers this week, though after that things get interesting! Trickshot Blitz shoots back onto the charts and we have new entries from PipeFlare and BLCR.

Pipeflare is another mobile suite of casual games that offer token rewards while BLCR is a basic, mobile-based card game that recently begun offering ranking rewards. Mobile, web3 gaming is on the rise, and it may just be the catalyst needed to bring more mainstream attention to the words of blockchain gaming!

Another mostly slumping week for NFT sales overall.

The upcomong Forge event for Clone – X, allowing users to claim physical merchandise, in this case, Nike sneakers, has brought a renewed interest in the Clone collection, and CryptoPunks saw a bump in trading volume as well, perhaps boosted by two 88 ETH sales and a recent CryptoPunks meetup hosted by Beeple.

Gods Unchained continues to dominate the gaming market in regards to NFT trading, maintaining a pretty steady 4-5 million dollars in volume per week!
