This week has seen positive sentiment in cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology increase. Even if it sometimes seems that blockchain enthusiasts are still in the minority, the number and quality of projects are constantly growing. So let’s take a look at our top 10 NFT collections and games from the past week.
With the financial world in crisis, cryptocurrencies are solidly in the green this week. The competition in the world of web3 games is getting fiercer as mobile games start to capture a bigger share of the audience. And while many NFT projects come and go, the Bored Ape Yacht Club franchise continues to grow and attract collectors with every NFT release they have!

Read on for the most active Web3 games and NFT projects of the week. And be sure to keep an eye on our website and Twitter Feed for the latest developments in the web3 gaming space!
Top play to win active user games
A small change in the charts this week. Mobile gaming is increasingly at the forefront of Web3 gaming as Benji Bananas sees a resurgence, and we have two new mobile entrants from Iskra and Yulivere. Iskra, this week launched 3 Kingdoms Multiverse, a turn-based mobile game to win RPGs. Yulivere, another RPG, is currently in public beta and is available for iOS and Android devices.
And while player counts for some of the regular games are down a bit, overall the competition in the web3 space is heating up, with one of the oldest games, Axie Infinity, nearly wiped out from the charts! And we might even have competition for the top two spots in the weeks and months to come!

NFT charts are seeing a lot of volatility this week. Which isn’t unusual considering the charts are still dominated by high-value PFP-style projects.
And while Bitcoin ordinals are a hot topic these days, Ethereum NFT collections still attract big spenders.
Sewer passages resurface as BAYC opens the strike for power sources. Some people are said to even buy canceled sewer passes (those that have already claimed their power source), even though they have no future use cases! And then the power sources, under the HV-MTL collection name, claim over $15 million in volume in their first week!
Looks like BAYC can’t be wrong as it brings us back to having five of the top ten projects associated with the Bored Ape universe!
