Magic Eden, a non-fungible token (NFT) marketplace is partnering with several leading publishers and communities. This initiative is to create the web3 games collective (w3gc).
W3gc is a new industry group to promote the mass adoption of Web3 gaming. It was announced at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco. The members include DAO game7, yield guild games, and Fenix games.
Steven Chen, a core contributor at game7, believes that the development of blockchain games should focus on infrastructure investment. It is important to highlight the technology, services, quality games, and intellectual property to move the sector forward. The same way promotions took place for the development of pc, consoles, and mobile games.
Gabby Dizon, co-founder of YGG has stated that the discovery and access of web3 games are too difficult for the average user. To address this, YGG is partnering with a DAO (game7) and game publisher (Fenix games) to simplify the landscape and foster mass adoption.
The group is aiming to create a safer environment for investors and developers. The members can explore blockchain technology to find and grow a successful project that will bring in more users.
Magic Eden’s interest in web3 gaming
Magic Eden has shown an increasing interest in web3 gaming. It recently appointed a former Electronic Arts Executive as Chief Gaming Officer. The platform also invested in 11 web3 gaming studios in February.
Cryptokitties recently launched mint madness, an initiative to release twelve games on three different blockchains throughout March. It also follows the launch of Magic Eden games, a platform designed to help game studios communicate with players and share updates about their games.
