Gaming tokens see gains as Arbitrum kicks off gameathon

Crypto gaming token Immutable (IMX), Ronin (RONIN), BEAMX (BEAMX), Enjin Coin (ENJ) and Illuvium (ILV) prices rallied on Monday. The gains in gaming tokens can be attributed to a broad crypto market rally as Bitcoin crosses $72,000 on Binance. 

Ethereum (ETH) scaling solution Arbitrum’s Arcade gameathon goes live on March 11. The event is eight weeks long and will feature 24 games in the Arbitrum ecosystem. It is likely catalyzing gains in the ecosystem alongside Bitcoin’s rally. 

The event aims to offer a web3 gaming experience to participants and include projects from Arbitrum One, Nova and the broader Arbitrum Orbit chain ecosystem. 

Gaming tokens IMX, RONIN, BEAMX, ENJ and ILV prices climbed between 2% and 9% on the daily timeframe. 

Another key development in the gaming ecosystem is that entertainment giant Sony submitted a US patent application for “super-fungible tokens” for gaming. The PlayStation console series’ game developer submitted the application in 2022, and the documents became public in February.

The anticipation of further push in the gaming industry and higher demand for gaming tokens through gamethon and similar events could catalyze gains in the long term.
