Blockchain gaming showed more resilience in the bear market. As we entered 2024, many including studio executives predicted millions of people would come to Web3 for the sake of gaming.
Some of the attributes strengthening this season’s affinity to gaming hype are the anticipation of more commercial releases from beta versions, the launch of new tokens, and a deeper understanding of Web3 gaming amongst the general public.
Surprisingly, analytics from dappradar.com indicate the number of unique crypto wallets dropped in 2023 compared to 2022, however, blockchain gaming wallets continued making progress with a daily average of 791,474 unique active wallets.
At the same time, up to 1 million unique wallets were playing Web3 games daily in the last three consecutive months leading to 2024. However, Moonland founder and CEO Miguel Palencia is one of the industry execs who believe daily active gamers will increase from 1 million to 100 million in 2024 onwards.
What many games in the Web3 space have lacked is a mobile app. If many of the blockchain games can bundle up a decent app together and have a good game, maybe even more non-gamers would become interested. Among the attributes that everyone in space is betting on is these games’ ability to create new revenue streams, offer immersive metaverse experiences, implement community engagement, and tokenization.
Launch of Moonland MTK Token
Talking of tokenization, Moonland, one of the metaverse games promising an immersive and expansive experience will be launching its $MTK token on Bitmart launchpad on 21st February, followed by a private presale that will kick off on 21st March 2024. According to the game’s tokenomics details, MTK will have a fixed supply of 1,234,567,890 tokens.
Moonland brings the metaverse to your daily gaming needs. Through it, you can build avatars, explore new geographical places, and even become a landowner. Entrepreneurs can also run their independent businesses on the metaverse. Moreover, the platform is also home to stunning virtual concerts, battle arenas, and social experiences.
Apart from the $MTK tokens, Moonland created a batch of NFT collections. Some of these have already been distributed in the first phase, while the rest will be distributed in two more phases. Holders of the Moonland NFTs will unlock access to an early demo of the game, and exclusive rights to participate in the $MTK private presale and even receive a free airdrop.
Furthermore, holding the NFTs will unlock your way into an exclusive test-to-earn (T2E) campaign where you test Moonland’s demo version and earn rewards. It is not hard to own a Moonland NFT.
Your very first interaction with the game requires you to create your avatar, build its character, and mint it as a non-fungible token. After minting, it’s also possible to sell your avatar NFT on an open marketplace called the Galactic Market. Moonland is expansive with innumerable portals that can transport you to other dimensions, virtual environments, and gaming experiences. It is also possible to come across a random NFT while you explore the game’s metaverse.
For a game of its size, you’d expect to dig deeper into your wallets to participate in the 21st March exclusive presale. Thankfully, the Moonland presale price is $0.18, and then a 21st April crowdsale where the price of each $MTK token will be $0.21.

While there are many blockchain stuff to anticipate in 2024, one of the biggest roadblocks for blockchain gaming is onboarding millions of players. If the technology is more sophisticated, this might also be a challenge for users. Many of whom are yet to understand the intricacies of the blockchain. Despite these hurdles, several games have made it their mission to build an intuitive experience, and help average players adapt faster to the broadening Web3 gaming space. One of those games is Moonland.
