100+ Web3 Games nominated at inaugural GAM3 AWARDS hosted by Polkastarter Gaming

Polkastarter Gaming will be hosting the inaugural GAM3 AWARDS on December 15 in search of the best web3 games across a full spectrum of genres and categories. The awards will focus on a gameplay-first approach highlighting the exciting new gameplay and item mechanics available through blockchain technology.

While web3 gaming may have taken off in 2021 with the rise of NFT-based games and the promise of high returns, The GAM3 AWARDS looks to reward the web3 games that excel in serving the core focus of video games; entertainment.

The awards will be decided on by the community and an expert jury panel including CryptoSlate’s senior journalist, Liam ‘Akiba’ Wright along with dedicated community categories for special categories such as People’s Choice and Best Content Creator. For the main categories judging will be weighted 90% jury and 10% community.
