According to PancakeSwap, the gaming marketplace provides developers access to its vast user base of over 1.5 million potential monthly players. The platform is designed to make integration of CAKE tokens and PancakeSwap NFTs seamless so developers can easily build play-to-earn and NFT-powered games. This incentivizes players to spend more time gaming to earn crypto rewards.
One of the key highlights of the gaming marketplace is its multi-chain interoperability. PancakeSwap operates on 9 popular blockchains including BNB Chain, Ethereum, Polygon, Aptos, Arbitrum and more. This allows developers on any of these chains to build and publish cross-chain games on the PancakeSwap marketplace.
As GameFi gains more mainstream traction, the timing of this marketplace launch seems ideal to tap into crypto gamers. PancakeSwap is already a leading DEX, and this gaming focus can help expand its ecosystem and utility.
