Tezos Expands Reach in NFTs and Blockchain Gaming 

1/12/2022: Tezos is a next generation smart contract platform that features a self-amending ledger, low transaction fees, and high network security. Tezos functions through its own native cryptocurrency tez (XTZ) which can be utilized for staking, to process transactions, and to power on-chain applications, marketplaces, and other protocols.

Tezos also utilized a Proof-of-Stake model which allows it to be a highly efficient, low energy cost blockchain. This has made the Tezos blockchain very appealing to more than a few of its notable partners.

Tezos has also become a hot market for artists, developers, gamers, and entrepreneurs. With brand new blockchain games, DAOs, and highly connected NFT exchanges filling out the Tezos ecosystem, metrics for the network have impressively expanded over the past year.

Tezos has officially reached the following metrics:

  • 1,900,000+ funded wallets
  • 40,000,000+ contract calls

Arguably the most impressive pull for the Tezos blockchain is its impressive status as a major destination for blockchain gaming, NFT artists & marketplaces, and developers. With major players like Ubisoft now a part of the system and multiple blockchain games in development, Tezos has positioned itself as an industry leader in these categories.

Additionally, the blossoming NFT market on Tezos is equally impressive. Many major partners are in the process of developing and launching NFTs on Tezos as artists flock to major Tezos exchanges like OBJFT, Kalamint, Oneof, and integrated Ethereum-based NFT marketplace Rarible. There are also talks that OpenSea will have connectivity to Tezos as well.
