We are excited to announce that Firebond has become our most recent addition to our track record. Firebond is an all-in-one analytics and growth marketing platform designed to enable web3 games to optimize player engagement, retention, and revenue generation.
Why we added Firebond to our track record
The gaming industry is currently one of the most promising and exciting sectors, often overlooked amidst the larger ecosystem players. According to projections from Statista, gaming revenues are expected to reach a staggering $400 billion by 2023, with an annual growth rate of 7.7%. On average, each gamer contributes around $154 to this booming market. The web3 gaming space, which encompasses blockchain technology, is riding this wave of success, particularly in Asia, where 1.7 billion players (55% of the global gaming population) are leading the charge. This dominance is anticipated to grow to 80% in the near future, presenting a potential market of $200 billion, as reported by web3 Gaming. VC funds have already poured more than $3 billion into web3 games, with countries like Korea, the Philippines, and Vietnam experiencing remarkable growth in their gaming economies.
However, game developers face a major challenge when it comes to acquiring users. In 2022 alone, a staggering $26.7 billion was spent on user acquisition, according to this report. This challenge is further compounded for web3 game developers due to the decentralized nature of blockchain and the need to provide a seamless user experience. Mainly, there are three significant issues faced by web3 gaming developers: a lack of analytical infrastructure and tools, difficulties in user acquisition and retention, and the high costs and complexity of existing solutions. These challenges necessitate the development of a new solution specifically tailored for web3 games.
