Crypto prices are up, NFT sales see increased volumes, and mobile gaming continues to dominate our charts! Read on to find out more web3 gaming news and see who tops the game and NFT collection charts this week!
Lots of excitement in the crypto space this week as Bitcoin and pretty much every other cryptocurrency saw significant price increases. A lot of NFT collections saw increased activity as well, which is a nice change from the downward trends we’ve seen for quite some time!
For those into web3 gaming, Hunters On-Chain is now free to play. Anyone can join and receive a free, soulbound (though unlockable) Hunter to use in the play to earn game. Continuum World is holding a Halloween event over the next couple of days as a prelude to the Season 3 launch for First Explorers. The move to earn space received a boost as well, as Sweat Economy has now made their app available to residents of the US!
And though you may have missed the free equipment mint for Last Remains, you do still have time to pick up free tickets for an upcoming ‘epic raffle’ from Qorpo World!
Though this hasn’t received a lot of widespread notice, the Gray Boys Proxy marketplace is a potential game changer for the ability to safely and easily rent and borrow NFTs!

Sweat Economy continues to hold the top spot on our charts and even increases their lead a bit with a 10% gain in active player numbers this past week. With a low barrier to entry, an already established user base, and a move to earn economy now available across most of the world, I see no reason that Sweat Economy won’t be able to sustain this amount of player interest for some time!

Nobody new on our NFT charts this week, though quite a few projects saw heavy surges in trading volume — perhaps spurred on by the recent uptick in crypto prices? The Bored Apes also won a recent copyright infringement lawsuit, which should help for any future issues around copyright law and the Apes.
Winds of Yawanawa continues to surprise. And even though they had a much slower week than last time around, this is not a typical NFT project.
