2 – Syn City IGO Happens Tomorrow

3 – Sipher to Reveal Gameplay Footage
Many games offer carefully crafted trailers to entice players. However, actual gameplay footage excites blockchain gaming players the most as they see how the game actually works out.

4 – Axie Infinity Introduces Builders Program
Community lies at the heart of blockchain gaming. Players owning their own in-game assets, building houses or businesses in the metaverse, or constructing new gameplay features sets blockchain games apart from other virtual entertainment. In the same vein, Axie Infinity reveals its new Builders Program.
Above all, the Builders Program features the goal of giving the game’s community the tools and support to create new gaming experiences on top of the blockchain game. In addition, the program seeks to manage any risk to the community taking part in these new gaming experiences. The program is offering a total of $400,000 in AXS tokens (5,000 tokens) to motivate and support community members in their creations. Overall, the developers will give a minimum of a $5,000 grant to approved projects. However, the program does feature a list of requirements, such as 10% of all revenue from the new gameplay must go into the game’s treasury or be burned.
