Konami and Web3
In January, Konami to commemorate the 35th anniversary of Castlevania, a series of gothic horror action-adventure video games that KONAMI created and developed, Konami launched an NFT auction on Opensea in January, which ended with a price of nearly $165,000.
Other gaming companies on the Web3
Previously Ubisoft and Tezos launched a platform for playable NFTs in AAA games.
Some video game companies have entered the world of NFTs to make money. In addition, there have been certain environmental concerns regarding the PoW or proof-of-work mining procedure that is deployed for minting. Several of these concerns can be avoided as Ethereum has transformed into PoS or proof-of-stake.
This year has witnessed the collapse of the NFT market and in recent months, NFT sales on OpenSea have fallen to 99% compared to their all-time highs that exceeded $400 million earlier this year.
