Why the crypto gamers Axie Infinity and The Sandbox faced losses in 2022

Metaverse adoption has slowed at the end of 2022. The crypto market was filled with cyber attacks, frauds, and bankruptcies that slightly impacted the popular NFT-based online game Axie Infinity (AXS) and Ethereum-based metaverse gaming platform The Sandbox (SAND).

According to the data from the website, the number of players of the Axie Infinity monster battlefield game developed by Vietnamese gaming studio Sky Mavis fell to about 432,001 at the end of December 2022. The popular game has lost 85% of its player base from last year.

In the past 24 hours, The Sandbox price has been down by 1.5% with a trading volume of $91,401,574. At the time of the crypto market explosion in 2021, The Sandbox reached its all-time high of $8.38 and declined gradually since then.
