At the heart of the blockchain gaming revolution is knowledge and our commitment to our mission to stay at the forefront is unwavering.

This comprehensive report sheds light on the latest trends, challenges, and opportunities in the blockchain gaming ecosystem.

Live Panel Discussions
Gamescom Panel
We delved into discussions about blockchain gaming’s future at the largest European gaming event of the year and heard from Gamescom veterans Nick Dunham from Spielworks Alfredo Bárcena — Ready.gg, Carsten van Husen — Eleet Games, and Lenny Petterson –Antler Interactive to talk about how blockchain gaming will be received, what previous years have looked like, and how BGA and members showcasing blockchain-based products, services, and games at the booth can be present and raise awareness of the possibilities of blockchain gaming.

User Acquisition
In this panel discussion, BGA gathers its members to talk about the use of blockchain data for user acquisition, engagement, and retention in blockchain gaming. Alongside panelists Adrian Krion from Spielworks, Eric Chang from W3W, Filip Wielanie from Cookie3, and Yogev Regev from OviO, we discussed how blockchain is changing the way game companies analyze and market to specific user groups based on on-chain and off-chain data. The panel also looked at the importance of community building and interoperability within the gaming industry, touching on several aspects and the challenges and possible solutions related to privacy, security, and anonymization of user data in the context of blockchain gaming analytics. You can watch the recap here.

Board Member Meeting — Setting the Course
August also witnessed a crucial milestone in our governance. During our first new board member meeting, honorary board members welcomed our newly elected members to their roles. There was a unanimous vote for Sebastien Borget, Co-founder and COO at The Sandbox, to remain BGA’s President and Shaban Shaame from Everdreamsoft as BGA treasurer. His dynamic and passionate presence and unwavering commitment to blockchain gaming saw a resounding agreement to keep him at the helm of BGA. Yasmina Kazitani, CMO at Interverse.AI, is the newly appointed Secretary of the Board, contributing her expertise and dynamic energy to our leadership team.

One of the key topics discussed during the meeting was to define a clear strategy to expand BGA’s mission and activities across the globe. Our board members are enthusiastic about supporting the BGA and outlined propositions that will be reviewed at the next monthly board meeting.
