Blockchain Games Key to Onboarding a 'Critical Mass of Users Onto Web3' — Claudio Riff – Interview Bitcoin News

Pointing to the gaming industry’s appeal and reported market value of over $200 billion in 2021, the CEO of Pooky postulated that having more blockchain-based games could potentially help “onboard a critical mass of users onto Web3.”
