Not much change in the web3 gaming rankings again this week. We still see some heavy domination by mobile games and platforms.

A couple of new entries this week. One is Kratos Studios, a community gaming hub that I’m pretty sure was called IndiGG last week! The other is motoDEX, a competitive, motorcycle racing game.

The Bored Apes are back with a nice surge in trading volume over this past week and the Mutant Apes following suit.

CrypToadz jump onto the charts this week on the back of a single NFT sale for 1.6 million. With the current floor price of under $100, this sale has led to a lot of speculation about money laundering. Especially as the wallet that made the purchase was funded with 1,200 ETH withdrawn from Tornado Cash!

A new entry, Winds of Yawanawa, is an interesting collaboration with the Brazilian Indigenous Yawanawa community!
