Gone are the days when online gaming was only considered to relax or pass the time of leisure. Over the past decade, it has undergone a paradigm shift, and it is no longer just a hobby or fun activity, but also an incentive for users to spend time. As mobile phones have revolutionized the experience for most users, gaming has become one of the world’s most popular forms of entertainment, allowing people to build communities that transcend borders, religions and ages. Gaming is one of the most powerful tools for bringing new technologies to the masses and will be a stepping stone to making Web3 and the digital revolution an integral part of our lives.
