MarketAcross Joins Polkastarter Gaming & Web3 Stalwarts For Groundbreaking GAM3 Awards – TBEN


Tel Aviv, Israel, November 15, 2022, Chainwire

The first of its kind Web3 gaming event to connect the community, gaming studios and industry influencers to award select winners from over 200 games across 16 unique categories

Following the rapid growth of blockchain-based gaming and rising investment flows, Polkastarter is hosting the very first GAM3 Awards to showcase the industry’s progress in building engaging, entertaining Web3 games. To handle the coverage, publicity and promotion of the award show, MarketAcross partners with Polkastarter and other leading industry participants as the event’s official media partner.

Scheduled for a Twitch broadcast on December 15, 2022, the GAM3 Awards are designed to highlight the best Web3 games that provide a fun and engaging experience for players rather than focusing on token economies and gamification typical of blockchain game titles. The event judges will review more than 200 Web3 games in 16 categories before handing out $300,000 in prizes to the winning teams. Prizes are sponsored by a consortium of cryptocurrency’s biggest names, including the Blockchain Game Alliance, Immutable X, Machinations, and Ultra, among others.

Itai Elizur, Managing Partner of MarketAcross, concludes, “The success of Web3 gaming ultimately depends on competing with AAA gaming titles to attract and engage a wider gamer audience. We appreciate the approach the GAM3 Awards embody to base awards on gameplay rather than tokenomics. While many play-to-earn titles are pouring into the space, we argue that any Web3 gaming triumph will be the result of great storylines, stunning graphics, and engaging gameplay, which is why the core philosophy of this event is so unmissable.

“We called it the “GAME” awards, with a 3, to keep the focus on the actual games themselves, cutting out the web3 jargon and negative connotations, while still paying homage to the underlying web3 technology which we believe will help shape the future of gaming. The GAM3 Awards will highlight the high quality of web3 games in the space and showcase the true potential of blockchain technology integration, without compromising the quality of the games themselves.” said Omar Ghanem, Head of Gaming at Polkastarter.
