There are poker tables in Popsicle in Decentraland, which is in a metaverse that many people say doesn’t have enough things to do. Finance In the past, poker virtual casinos have never been as busy as they are now.
The play-to-win poker platform from Decentral Games is used by about 6,000 people each day. This makes up more than 30% of the people who use Decentraland every single day. Decentral Games founder Miles Anthony says the game has made more than $7.5 million. That is from its different sources of income in the last three months.
Anthony told CoinDesk in an interview that at any given time, there are more than 1,000 people playing poker at the same time at the company. Because metaverses are mostly empty right now, this is a lot of people, even though it doesn’t sound like there are that many people.
There has been a lot of discussion around Web3. It’s crucial to remember, though, that the numbers are still insignificant. According to DappRadar, the number of wallets, which is a way to figure out how many people are actually interacting with Ethereum-based smart contracts on a daily basis, is just 50,000. Non-fungible tokens recently sold for $13.3 billion in a recent funding round, making the market worth that much money.
It took a big risk on the metaverse about a year and a half ago when it began buying virtual land in Decentraland. It says it has more than 1,000 parcels of the game so far. In September of last year, Decentraland made an investment in that project, which helped to make it happen in part.
Popsicle, a game made by Decentral Games.
It should come as no surprise to anyone who has played online games for a long time. Online gambling platforms have been a hit with virtual communities for years.
If you want to win real money, you first have to buy a non-fungible game wearable from the platform, which Anthony says is the Web 3 version of the genre. Popsicle.Finance and Decentral Games are two separate tokens that the casino used to build its Vegas-like ecosystem.
The wearables, which are sold in drops on the platform in limited supply, already sell for a lot on secondary markets like OpenSea. At the time of this writing, they were selling for 2.46 Ethereum, which is around $6,500 at the time of writing.
A lot of people have to pay to get into the game, so guilds have become an important part of the ecosystem. He says the game doesn’t rely on big guilds like Yield Guild Games to make it easier for people to play. A lot of the time, gaming guilds rent out important crypto assets in exchange for a share of the profits made by retail users.
Antony told CoinDesk that he is 100% sure that big guilds are bad for game economies. The prices for guilds have been pretty crazy. Even in the short term, it can be very good. He doesn’t think many people think about the long-term effects of deals like this.
Even though there has been a lot of talk about the future of the metaverse in the last few months, few poker platforms have been able to get in because of regulations.
When Virtue Gaming got a Malta Gaming Authority license in December. It was the first play-to-win poker platform to get one. Popsicle has a different platform than Virtue.
Finance Poker is different from other games in that it doesn’t use tokens to make money. Instead, it makes money by using traditional casino rules to make money.
Anthony said that Decentral Games is also planning to make Popsicle for mobile phones and tablets. Soon, you can get money for poker.
