An Insight Into GAM3S.GG

GAM3S.GG has witnessed thousands of registered gamers discovering its collection of curated content that focuses on next-gen Web3 games since its inauguration. Last year, the platform presented the first and largest Web3 game award show – the GAM3 Awards, which witnessed more than 250,000 votes and 140,000 unique viewers tuning into the streamed event. Now, the platform will continue creating advanced features to remove barriers to entry for blockchain that may include social logins, player-owned item management, progression rewards, retrospective in-game progress tracking, and directly playing Web3 games on the platform.

“The traditional gaming features its IGN and Kotaku, yet the industry is not prepared for the change that blockchain-driven titles present; and if we wait for them to step in, we would lose possible early adopters and valuable progress – and that is why GAM3S.GG was created,” said Ghanem. “We are not just establishing, we are highlighting the top games, and setting gold standards and allowing gamers to get involved in games in unparalleled ways as we hope to become the final home of Web3 gaming,” he added.

The team’s mission for GAM3S.GG is to support Web3 gaming reach 100 million users via its platform and valuable content, and continue its growth as the trusted getaway for gamers hunting to explore possibilities of block-chain powered games using the newest features that try to squeeze all Web3 gaming needs under one roof.
