Uniswap Labs has stated that it aims to amplify the survival gaming experience for players by using some of its on-chain experience. The company was also among the sponsors for the game's previous season, along with other prominent companies such as Adidas.

As part of the deal, the CTG team will work alongside Uniswap Labs to develop their game's third season, which has already garnered attention across the crypto community. The team includes CTG co-founders Dylan Abruscato, Tyler Cagle, and Bryan Lee.

Crypto: The Game became a sensation in the crypto community shortly after its release in January. Its follow-up season 2 in April also drew the attention of several users.

The game draws inspiration from popular TV shows such as Squid Games, matching contestants against each other. CTG runs fully on-chain, with 800 gamers playing in a season that lasts for ten days, where only one winner takes the prize of 80 ETH. At the end of each season, the winner is voted by previously eliminated players.

Following the announcement on Monday, UNI's price surged by about 6%. UNI's price may continue to experience a rally, especially with the upcoming Crypto: The Game season 3.
