Let’s review the most played crypto games of the week, the hottest NFT collections, and round up the top announcements of the week. Did the recent crypto crash affect the number of players? Let’s find out.
Top play-to-earn games by active users
First of all, it is nice to see that we do not see a huge drop in the number of players. The top 5 are still hanging in there with solid numbers. We see Pegaxy falling out of this top 10, ranking now 11th. The low earnings due to the token price drops are probably the reason for this fall. Casual games like Galaxy Blocks, Jelly Squish, and now Color Craze remain popular, and this trend seems to be growing. Sunflower Land sees more than doubled its user base by allowing the minting of new farms. It is now the most played game on Polygon.

Despite a lot of FUD around its founder and how he handled previous projects, the Azuki is at the top of the charts in terms of trading volume. The sudden floor price drop seduced some investors and flippers and the collection was heavily traded.
Nevertheless, we notice a big drop in overall volume traded on the NFT market. Understandable in these uncertain times for the whole crypto ecosystem,
