This pushed activity even further, and the price of the game’s native token JEWEL skyrocketed 57% in the past thirty days.
Upland brings real estate investors to the blockchain
EOS-based real estate platform Upland continues its steady performance since the beginning of 2022. The game has been a constant presence in the weekly DappRadar top 10 blockchain games rankings, and rightfully earns a spot in the March ranking as well.

Alien Worlds teams up with Minecraft
Alien Worlds has recently integrated Minecraft functionalities which boosted interest in the platform significantly. Throughout March, Alien Worlds attracted upwards of 667,000 unique active wallets, becoming the most visited blockchain game of the month. This is no small feat and combined with the recent Minecraft integration, the game saw a positive effect on its native token TLM, which saw a price hike of 10% in the past month.
Crazy Defense Heroes pushes mobile gaming to the forefront
Polygon-based mobile tower defense game Crazy Defense Heroes has had a rather successful month, attracting upwards of 200,000 unique active wallets. This large user base and the lucrative P2E rewards the platform offers have pushed the game’s native token TOWER to new heights as well. In the past thirty days, TOWER gained more than 28% in valuation.
Axie Infinity pushes on after Ronin hack
P2E giant Axie Infinity still dominates the NFT space with more than $60 million in NFT trading volume generated in March. Despite the turbulent events surrounding the Ronin bridge exploit, the game has managed to keep its place in the top 10 blockchain games ranking for March. Additionally, Axie’s governance token AXS saw a 9.9% spike in valuation in the past thirty days. With the Origin update launching in early April, fans have reasons enough to be excited.
Splinterlands thrives despite SPS value drop
Hive-based card trading game Splinterlands is an industry favorite. The game attracted more than 560,00 unique active wallets this month, ranking second among the most visited blockchain games across all chains.

F1 Delta Time is gone, REVV Racing is here to stay
Polygon-based racing game REVV Racing ranks eighth this month, despite a turbulent couple of weeks for creator Animoca Brands. REVV Racing’s Formula 1 counterpart F1 Delta Time stopped operating, which caused a wave of racers to move to the REVV platform. This in turn pushed activity, and the game’s native token REVV gained close to 10% in valuation in March.
The Gotchiverse is here!
Aavegotchi ranks towards the bottom of the chart, however, the platform saw important updates this month. On March 31st, Aavegotchi unveiled its virtual world, the Gotchiverse.

In the past thirty days, Aavegotchi generated more than $3 million in NFT sales volume, while its native token GHST gained 5% in valuation.
The Sandbox Alpha 2 ends
Ethereum-based virtual world The Sandbox held its second alpha season throughout March, and this event had a very positive effect on activity for the platform.

Mobox rises to the top
Mobox launched in April 2021, and is soon going to celebrate its first anniversary. Since last year, the game has become a go-to passive income and entertainment source on the BNB Smart Chain. Compared to its activity a year ago, the game now attracts more than six times the number of unique active wallets every month.
This stellar rise is propelled by Mobox’s fun premise, engaging design, and most importantly passive income opportunities. Earning NFTs and chests, and staking rewards, are just a portion of all passive income mechanics on the platform.
What’s more, the Mobox team keeps pushing updates and developments to the game’s ecosystem. The recent launch of Molar Defense is a perfect example. Soon, Mobox also plans to introduce new MOBOX avatars. These will serve as a virtual representation of a player for the forthcoming MOMOverse, set to launch next week.
March 2022 has seen Mobox set out on an ambitious positive trajectory towards new achievements. DappRadar will continue monitoring the hit BSC game as it launches its MOMOverse virtual world, and introduces new exciting updates for players.
