Blockchain Gaming Alliance Report: 2.32B in Revenue From NFT Gaming

While new blockchain technology, specifically Web3, is still under way, NFTs in video games are raking in billions of dollars according to a report released by BGA.

The gaming community has been eager to obtain NFTs by simply playing their favorite video games. Ever since digital currency was introduced into the gaming industry, the trading volume of NFTs jumped drastically, with over 20% of all transactions being made for gaming purposes. Better yet, that was only in the third quarter of 2021. 

Based on the BGA report, one of the most booming metaverse activities was virtual land purchasing which hit $42.6M worth of sales only in the first half of 2021. Not only that, by the end of November, digital land dapps surpassed $4.6B, reaching its all-time high market cap.
