4 – Blockchain Gaming Received Over $4 Billion in Investments
2021 was a great year for blockchain games when it comes to investments. DappRadar reports that the industry received over $4 billion from investors during the year. The top four companies in raising investment money were Forte ($930 million), Sorare ($783 million), Dapper Labs ($607 million), and Animoca Brands ($221 million).
Such investment levels herald an even brighter 2022 for blockchain games. Currently, there are 1.4 million unique wallets connecting to blockchain games. That number is likely to explode next year as blockchain gaming and NFTs become increasingly mainstream.
