Though it is challenging to point at the exact increase in players in the crypto gaming ecosystem, daily active wallets associated with gaming-related cryptocurrencies are a strong indicator. 

The daily active wallets in GameFi have noted a massive spike, a 600% increase in less than three months, according to data from DappRadar. 

Arianna Simpson, general partner at Andreessen Horowitz (the firm that has invested in Axie Infinity developer Sky Mavis) believes that, 

Axie embodies a new generation of games, where game creators are not operating from a place of fear but rather as an open, free-market economy. What this means for the future of games, and really the web as we know it, is as big as your imagination will allow.

Interestingly, Axie Infinity accounts for nearly 25% of the total value locked (TVL) in Ethereum bridges. Axie Infinity’s Ronin bridge claimed the number one spot in TVL based on data from Dune Analytics. 

The NFT game had reported 1.8 million daily active users in August 2021. Axie Infinity’s total sales volume has exceeded $2.6 billion. Pseudonymous cryptocurrency analyst @Pentosh1 considers the AXS price trend bullish. The analyst has set a target of $200 for AXS price.
