Some dapps saw increases upwards of 1000%
Polygon games saw a steep increase in the number of unique active wallets interacting with them in the past seven days. According to DappRadar data, all of the top fifteen Polygon-based gaming dapps have boosted their user base.
The blockchain-based gaming sector is currently experiencing a surge of interest. Gamified DeFi is attracting more and more users across all chains. While Polygon is traditionally regarded as a DeFi blockchain, the gaming sector is also performing well. Of course, competitors like Wax, where the most popular games are built, show significantly bigger audiences. However, Polygon-based games are seeing a serious influx of players, steadily chasing competitors.
It is important to note that the positive data trend for Polygon-based games spans over the last thirty days as well. With some expected shifts in positions, and only a couple of dapps showing a negative output in the past 30 days, it is clear that gaming is taking over the Polygon blockchain.
Some notable Polygon games
Among the top fifteen Polygon games for the week, there are a couple that stand out with impressive gains. As a new dapp LoserChick has seen some expected spikes in the number of users accessing its smart contracts. Interestingly, the platform allows players to take part in a classic game of “Claw Crane”, which is an innovative idea in the space. As the first Polygon game of that type, LoserChick is going to see further spikes in its user base.
My Crypto Heroes on Polygon is the rebirth of the original dapp, which launched on Ethereum. The Polygon-based version launched only at the beginning of last month. Differentiating from LoserChick, My Crypto Heroes gives players the opportunity to battle against each other in an RPG-style game. What’s impressive is that in the past week, the platform attracted 1197% more unique active wallets.
While these are just the most impressive gains for the week, the takeaway from this week’s performance of Polygon games is clear. The gaming sector is steadily growing across all blockchains, and Polygon is not excluded. DappRadar will continue monitoring the development of this trend, so stay tuned.
