Sunflower Land and Alien Worlds complete the top of the charts
While token prices have been dropping, gaming dapps kept attracting players with the trading card game Splinterlands leading the pack. The game drew more than 479,000 unique active wallets, while the SPS token price dropped 6.5%.
Across the board, the crypto market has taken hits as investors get shaky legs with a recession looming and inflation booming. Nonetheless, blockchain games keep seeing strong demand. In April, 52% of all unique active wallets across all blockchains interacted with a gaming dapp. That’s roughly 1.2 million wallets per day.
We see Splinterlands being one of the heavy hitters, attracting more than 479,000 unique active wallets. As token prices drop, the number of active wallets becomes a solid metric to determine these rankings. Therefore it’s not a surprise to see Sunflower Land and Alien Worlds completing the top 3.
