In today’s High Score Junkie:
⚔️ A bidding war brews
🌊 Is OpenSea open to selling?
📝 Pre-registering opens for Sipher Odyssey
And much more…
Let’s dive in!
TODAY IN GAMING
⛓️ Immutable Mainnet Early Access Goes Live
Immutable’s zkEVM mainnet is another step closer to its official launch with early access now going live.
Powered by Polygon, the mainnet will boast high speeds, low transaction costs, and epic security. All combined with zk (zero-knowledge) rollup technology.
The chain is built exclusively for game studios, developers, and gamers, and will work smoothly alongside other services like Immutable Passport.
🌊 OpenSea CEO Open to Company Sale
There’s been a huge decline in NFT volume this bear market.
A 96% drop in monthly trading volume since January 2022 and an increase in competition has put immense pressure on platforms within the industry, OpenSea being one of them.
In a recent interview with DL news, OpenSea CEO Finzer expressed a willingness to sell the platform amidst a continued market downturn.
But who knows, things might pick up again and all of this could remain a bad dream. Finzer remains optimistic.
💎 A Bidding War Sparks for Treasure DAO
Treasure DAO, home to a vibrant ecosystem of indie games living on Arbitrum, is about to migrate to their own dedicated Layer 3 chain.
Their proposal to deploy an ‘app chain’, where each game would live on its own chain and use native $MAGIC as gas, is close to being realised via an official litepaper.
However, an unexpected tweet by Optimism, and another later that day by zkSync, proposed the DAO to join their chain. This found the ecosystem in a stand-out chain war, with two large and prominent ecosystems vying for a piece of the action.
Will Treasure DAO stay on Arbitrum, the chain that made it what it is today, or will it look for greener pastures?
