  • DappRadar stated that February tends to be a slow month for the blockchain gaming industry.
  • The platform reported that the average dUAW of February represents a sharp decline.

DappRadar, the universal app store for decentralized applications, crypto tokens, and NFTs, posited that February tends to be a slow month for the blockchain gaming industry.

The average daily unique active wallets connecting to blockchain gaming dapps in February were 752,735, representing a 12.33% decrease from the previous month. This decline is consistent with previous years, as February tends to be a slow month for the industry.
