Happy New Year!
Token Gamer and NFT Insider have decided to combine forces to launch a WAX-centric, weekly podcast, WAX Lyrical. John Nichols of NFT Insider and I will discuss a new topic every week, as well as feature special guests in the near future. If there’s a topic you’d like us to cover, make sure you let us know through the Token Gamer Discord or Twitter, or the NFT Insider Discord or Twitter.
In last week’s episode, we discussed the future of NFTs through their widespread utility and the many industries they may revolutionize. This week, John and I sink our teeth into a juicy subject: WAX’s year in review.
Episode 6: The 2021 WAX Wrap-up
Where do I start? As someone who has been in and around WAX since 2018, the past 12 months have been objectively the most impactful. In fact, so much has happened in 2021 that I had to go through notes and articles to find the many things I had forgotten. Some of the earliest milestones for WAX this year feel a lifetime ago thanks to the breakneck pace at which the industry moves.
There have been a plethora of moments for celebration this year for WAX, from active wallets growing over 1,000% to north of 10 million as of this week, through to dominance in the blockchain gaming charts. We have seen Alien Worlds and Splinterlands top the tables, Farmers World manage a trading volume of $180 million, and the biggest NFT sale of $695k.
That is before we mention the incredible IPs brought to WAX, with the likes of Spider-Man and Funko. We are well poised for an incredible 2022, but before setting off into another wild adventure into the new year, let’s take a look at just how far we’ve come.
John and I also make a number of predictions, from total active wallets this time next year, to the price of $WAXP. Note them down and come back in 12 months to let us know we are frauds and know nothing.
Make sure you let us know your thoughts via Twitter or our Discords, as well as any subjects you would be interested in us covering. And finally, we’d like to ask that if you listen to us on Apple podcasts that you rate us five stars and leave us a review if you enjoy WAX Lyrical.
