The dedicated blockchain gaming conference by CGC Games never disappoints when is comes to interesting discussions and engaging topics on the future of gaming. This year was no different. Gamers, gaming projects and Web3 infrastructure providers gathered to talk about the issues facing the industry and potential solutions.

On Day 1 attendees learned that a number of NFTs and NFT collections are gaming already, according to Adrian Krion, CEO of Wombat. He believes that things can be done with NFTs only that don't need games built around them. Dynamic NFTs, Merge, Breed and Blend.

"NFTs will play a very significant role not only in games but in many entertainment aspects of our lives."

"People expect to make money and that's a problem. Gamers don't care about making money."

"We created an ecosystem in the boom market."

Benjamin Charbit from Darewise Entertainment went on to ask the question that is on most people's minds. What makes a game successful versus what makes a game fun?

"The problem with Web3 economies is that they require you to be Web3 friendly. We need more hybrid economies." 

Heloísa Passos, CEO of Trexx believes that fun is necessary as a component but not enough. 

"Fun is not enough. Visuals, characters...Making an ecosystem to involve the player in the experience is important." 

To close out the day attendees heard from leading metaverse project, Upland. They will be launching an NFT Portal to allow the nft community to import their NFTs and export them out also. Here are some valuable insights from Dirk Lueth, Co-Founder of Upland:

"In Upland, it's all about the community."

"Our economy continues to thrive even in this down turn."

"Build homes, race cars, operate a shop as a player and play games."

"We strongly believe that the users should have control over their assets and do what they like with them."

"Users want to work with brands they love but brands also need to know that they have a secure environment to work with."
