BoomLand’s Hunters: The Key Behind Success?

Polygon's blockchain network platform has experienced a surge in active users, with a staggering 17,000% increase in just 30 days, largely driven by the success of BoomLand's Hunters On-Chain game. This information comes from DappRadar, which also revealed that Planet IX, a strategy play-to-earn NFT game, dominated the on-chain activity on Polygon in the first quarter. The popularity of Polygon's zero-knowledge rollup in March and its collaborations with major companies like Adidas, Adobe, Reddit, Starbucks, and Warner Music for NFT initiatives and projects have also contributed to the platform's rise in unique active wallets (UAWs). Currently, Polygon's native token, MATIC, has a total market capital of $10 billion.

According to DappRadar, the most popular games on Polygon, apart from Hunters On-Chain, include Planet IX, Sunflower Land, Benji Bananas, Oath of Peak, Playbite, The Dustland, Crazy Defense Heroes, Aavegotchi, and The Red Village, with Planet IX and Hunters On-Chain dominating the Polygon Network presence in March.

Planet IX is set in a dystopian storyline and is the world's largest NFT-based strategy game, with approximately 550,000 players and over 400 million NFTs sold, according to the creators. The game aims to raise awareness about humanity's impact on the world today.

Hunters On-Chain, released in January, is a web3 adaptation of the popular mobile game Hunt Royale and is a free-to-play RPG. Since its test-net launch last month, the game has gained significant traction, entering the charts as one of the top blockchain games. A recent NFT sale on March 31st further boosted its popularity, with DappRadar reporting that Hunters On-Chain, along with 'Iskra,' had a monthly on-chain usage growth of 15,497%.
