It’s finally time to ring in the new year. However, 2021 has been a phenomenal year for blockchain gaming. The number of players in the blockchain gaming space, as well as the money spent on transactions, has skyrocketed this year.
As everyone waits for the fireworks to light up the sky, events and announcements are still going strong for blockchain games. StarMon hits a trading milestone. Meanwhile, gamers are helping victims of Typhoon Odette. The top blockchain gaming news for today include:
1 – Illuvium Showcases Crimson Wastes
Today, Illuvium released a short video on Twitter showing the Crimson Wastes region. In the video, a player explores the region. What is notable is the quality of the gameplay shown. Many people still think of blockchain games as breeding games like CryptoKitties, but games like Illuvium show that they can be as immersive as the major AAA titles.
Also, the game’s developers warned players that scammers are posting malicious links in the game’s Discord sever. The game states it never asks players to click on links in its Discord server so players should never click on any links. The developers are looking into thee issue.
2 – Yield Guild Games Rebuilding Destroyed Homes
Typhoon Odette destroyed 55,000 homes in the Philippines earlier this month. Yield Guild Games raised money to help families in need by helping rebuild their homes. The group announced it has surpassed its goal of helping rebuild 1,500 homes. The new goal is to use the remaining funds to reach a grand total of 3,000 homes. Donation links can be found here.
As of 12pm today, we have surpassed our original target of assisting 1,500 #OdettePH households. We will continue our #cryptoAyuda for as long as we have remaining funds, and are retargeting to *at least* 3,000 households in total across the nation. ❤🇵🇭 @YieldGuild #weareYGG
