Due to the decline in the general crypto market in 2022, the play-to-earn gaming ecosystem saw a huge drop in user activity. According to the CoinMarketCap and Naavik 2022 Blockchain Gaming Report published in November 2022, leading play-to-earn games, such as Axie Infinity and STEPN suffered huge blows in 2022.

These shocks came in the form of a decrease in the count of their daily active users, NFT sales volume, and the number of transactions completed. 

Axie Infinity impacted positively
