In the latest episode of Empire, Blockworks’ co-founder Jason Yanowitz and co-host Santiago Roel Santos are joined by Andrew Steinwold Managing Partner at Sfermion & John Crain CEO of SuperRare Labs.

Andrew & John saw the potential of NFTs years before most in 2018, just after Crypto Kitties broke the Ethereum blockchain. We decided to invite them to Empire to discuss the explosive growth in NFTs throughout 2020/21, how the industry has developed since their introduction around 2018 and what is the future for the NFT market.

Plus, listen in to get their thoughts on:

  • Intellectual property laws in the NFT market
  • How 2020 sparked parabolic NFT adoption
  • and so much more!

Check out what they had to say in the video below. 👇

Despite crypto gaming related projects and funds raising close to a billion dollars in November 2021, there have been only a handful of games that have attracted users apart from mercenary capital, and have had sustained activity for longer than a few months. Crypto gaming is going through an infrastructure phase. Theoretically, crypto gaming stands to benefit from purpose-built, high throughput chains, where blockspace is cheap (especially for games which are fully onchain). However, despite the launch of many gaming-focused chains, most crypto games are lacking in quality and quantity. Most new crypto gaming infrastructure either have no games or only a few games launched (e.g. Xai) or have failed to garner meaningful attention (e.g. Immutable X).
