P2E Moon Watch: The Gaming Week in Review (July 8 – July 15, 2022)

Top games added a few thousand users this week, with Axie breaking the 40K mark again.

While cryptocurrency markets remain volatile, projects keep building and boost their marketing attempts. Games are also ready to offer a free version and onboard players first, with multiple NFT or token offers coming from AAA-grade games. Older P2E games are also trying to offer more attractive events or earnings.

Top Events of the Week

Leading Games by Number of Users

The leading games remain almost the same, though Gameta is gaining more attention and climbing up the ranks. While some smaller P2E games take the lead for their respective blockchains, the most active ones owe their speed to WAX blockchain. Axie Infinity is still ranked among top 5 games, based on Origin free-to-play users.

P2E Token Price Action

Weekly Leader: WAXp,  -1.25% to $0.096. WAX trades on a different logic compared to other top gaming tokens. The network carries the most active games and collections, recently adding new arrivals. 

P2E tokens still suffered losses, though a bit more limited in the past week. Even leading games are using a different model with tournaments and prize pools to offer more meaningful rewards.

Weekly Loser: Gala Games (GALA) -10.07% to $0.047. Gala Games remains one of the busiest ecosystems, despite the sinking price of its token.

The market cap of all P2E tokens moved down slightly to $6.52B, within its usual range of the past few weeks.

Decentraland (MANA) -6.40% to $0.84. MANA is range-bound like the other tokens.

The Sandbox (SAND) remained in the second spot for another week. SAND is down 3% to $1.20, after a few weeks of more robust growth that surpassed other tokens.

Axie Infinity Shards (AXS) -6.45% to $14.05. Axie Infinity organized a new breeding event, with rare features potentially producing valuable Axies. The game continues to attract just a fraction of the players during previous seasons, but is hopeful for the full launch of Origin.

Gala Games (GALA) was the biggest loser among top tokens, excluding lower-ranked and very illiquid ones..

Ethereum (ETH) recovered to $1,257.97 in expectation of a merge with the Beacon Chain that would take the network closer to ETH 2.0. ETH remains the biggest source of liquidity for gaming and even flows over as wrapped ETH into other networks.
