Digital gaming platform G2A recently announced the launch of a marketplace for NFT collections related to Web3 games, aiming to expand its market potential by adding GameFi NFTs to its game software collection on a larger scale. According to a press release shared by officials, the new venture, which started on November 15th, aims to enable interaction with Web3 and NFT games led by the G2A team.
A Noteworthy Step from the Gaming Platform
With this move, the team will have the opportunity to see what blockchain games offer to the target audience and share NFT collections from games that have a partnership with G2A. Bartosz Skwarczek, CEO of G2A Capital Group, stated that they have been following the development of the blockchain gaming industry since the emergence of the NFT game project Cryptokitties.
Although some users venturing into this field may not trust the crypto market, it turns out that a large number of players are already involved in this sector. Bartosz Skwarczek, CEO of G2A Capital Group, commented:
“It has been revealed that players are quite familiar with the blockchain gaming industry, and a significant portion of them are already playing Web3 games and even trading NFTs from these games.”
Furthermore, the gaming platform has launched G2A Geekverse to create an online space for fans of Web3 games. Skwarczek stated that players will be able to find information about the best Web3 games in this area and have the chance to buy and sell crypto assets associated with these games.
The Web3 Wave Sweeps the Web2 Sector
Well-known gaming platforms in the Web2 realm have shown interest in Web3 games since the beginning of 2023. In July, Google Play Store started accepting NFT games with certain restrictions. According to the team, they will allow games that offer sales or winnings through NFTs.
Following Google Play, video game developer and publisher Epic Games also expressed their enthusiasm for Web3 games. Epic Games Store listed Gods Unchained, a NFT collection card game with gameplay comparable to popular games like Magic: The Gathering and Hearthstone, on their platform on June 22nd. The game store is also progressing towards listing another blockchain-based game called Illuvium on the gaming market on November 28th.
