Have you ever wondered what it will take to get to a billion crypto users? That’s widespread adoption. And it’s easier said than done. As CMT Digital’s Sam Hallene sees it, blockchain gaming projects can make it happen. Of course, it will take major investment. But there are viable models. Among the fastest-growing markets in terms of blockchain adoption are Argentina, the Philippines, and Nigeria, where people earn extra income by playing games like Axie Infinity. These are young, tech-savvy populations particularly open to crypto. Sam joins Real Vision’s Ash Bennington for a deep dive into Axie Infinity and other blockchain games, focusing on what makes projects stand out. Sam also shares his thoughts on currency and political risks when it comes to investing in emerging markets. Recorded on May 5, 2022.
