HackerNoon is expanding its web3 and metaverse strategy with the launch of a platform that will track the biggest blockchain games. This is not the technology and computing media company’s first foray into the metaverse.

The metaverse is generally described as a 3D virtual space that allows users to interact immersively through gaming activities, virtual concerts and other experiential events.

In a post announcing its new product, HackerNoon said that it had already partnered with metaverse gaming companies The Sandbox and MegaFans. The announcement also comes at the back of HackerNoon’s partnership with blockchain gaming research and analytics company, Blockchain Gaming Alliance (BGA).

HackerNoon will closely track blockchain games internationally, updating game rankings based on gamers, investors, and game developers interested in each blockchain game and metaverse project.

According to the announcement, each game will have its own dedicated page showcasing relevant videos (gameplay, trailers etc) and information about the title. The media platform will also populate relevant articles about the game published by HackerNoon.

“We’ve been partnering with blockchain gaming companies such as The Sandbox and MegaFans,” HackerNoon writes, “and the response has been phenomenal. The creative stories our contributors have come up with show just how much passion there is for the metaverse and the future it holds for us. HackerNoon wants to be part of building the metaverse, in whatever small or large way we can.”

The platform will act as an information resource for gamers, investors and game developers. Investors will use the data to identify the most attractive investment opportunities based on game rankings and the performance of their associated tokens, whereas, developers could use the same information to determine the best features (based on trending games) to integrate into their blockchains.

Gaming marketplaces and metaverse platforms could also use the same concept to curate different titles for their ecosystems.

Blockchain games are built on decentralised ecosystems that leverage cryptocurrencies and non-fungible tokens (NFTs) to offer rewards and earning opportunities to games.
