Web3 Games are dead, long live Games: SKALE CEO

Ethereum scaling network Skale CEO Jack O’Holleran is fairly confident that you’re not going to hear about Web3 gaming at all within the next five years.

“I feel very very strongly that the term Web3 gaming will no longer exist,” he tells Web3 Gamer (a column that will therefore need to be renamed by 2029).

The SKALE network is a layer-2 Ethereum scaling solution that claims to provide a seamless and lag-free gaming experience for users and can support up to 700 transactions per second.

It hosts popular Web3 titles such as multilevel motorcycle racing game MotoDex, sports metaverse Gamify and side-scrolling blockchain platformer Untitled Platformer, which have all racked up millions of downloads in the last year.
