Presented by Blockchain Game Alliance
Discover the Blockchain Game Alliance (BGA), the key partner to accessing the largest network of Web3 gaming professionals. A global, non-profit, community-focused organization with over 500 trailblazing company members across the globe, BGA members range from game studios, infrastructure, tooling, marketplaces, chains, IP licensing and more, covering a broad spectrum across the Web3 gaming ecosystem.
Our aim: To support our members to gain visibility at some of the most prominent conferences worldwide, giving members the opportunity to gain exposure, leverage speaking opportunities, network and collaborate with other BGA members and make new industry connections.
BGA: Supporting the Web3 gaming ecosystem
Guided by experts in the industry, BGA was founded in 2018 to bring builders together to collaborate and build the future of blockchain gaming, share knowledge and create industry standards. The Alliance was founded by key industry players hailing from Ubisoft, Yield Guild Games (YGG), Sky Mavis, EverdreamSoft and Delphi Ventures, among others. Sebastien Borget, co-founder of The Sandbox, was elected President of the BGA in 2020 and ranked fourth in the Top 100 Most Influential People in Crypto by Cointelegraph in 2022.
BGA organizes many activities throughout the year to support its members — the primary way we work with our members is by attending various key events throughout the year, strategically hosting booths at major conferences from GDC San Francisco, Consensus Austin, and, more recently, Gamescom Cologne and TOKEN2049 Singapore. At each event, we invite several members to demo their games and showcase their products and services at the BGA booth. For example, at Gamescom, Europe’s leading trade fair for digital games culture, we had 19 members showcasing 21 different projects throughout the conference. This year, BGA is excited to participate in GamesBeat Next in San Francisco, 24-25 October 2023, with a booth to meet and greet attendees, share our mission and invite members of the alliance to demo their games and products. Come and meet us there.
BGA members network, collaborate and keep abreast of activities in a private members’ group on Telegram and Discord. BGA also provides an educational platform for industry professionals to find relevant information about building in Web3 and other forms of content to showcase games and capitalize on solutions our members are developing. Through online activities and meetups, BGA facilitates a space for visibility and tackling trending topics, such as panel discussions, demo days and a weekly newsletter.
Blockchain gaming: State of the Industry Survey 2023
The BGA also conducts an annual survey of blockchain gaming industry professionals. Now in its third year, the survey is designed to assess the personal perspectives of industry professionals on the state of blockchain gaming to gain a yearly snapshot of the industry’s condition, advancements and trajectory. The yearly report serves as a valuable resource for the industry as well as investors, the media, researchers, educators, policymakers, regulators and government leaders, providing a comprehensive overview of the industry’s current status with critical insights into its health, growth, emerging trends and potential areas of risk.
Since its inception, the BGA has engaged Web3 advisory firm Emfarsis to conduct the survey, analyze the responses and compile the report, which covers topics such as adoption, growth, careers, innovation and other developments. DappRadar also partners with the BGA and Emfarsis to provide key takeaways over the year regarding sector funding, on-chain activity and engagement in blockchain games across a range of protocols. The 2023 report will be released in mid-December.
