Holding Out For a Hero
Despite last year’s unforgiving market conditions, the Play To Earn sector managed to see considerable growth: In Q3 2022 alone, $1.3 billion was raised by blockchain games and Metaverse projects according to this report published in October. So it seems a safe bet to expect more games to join what’s shaping up to be a crowded market.
One game to look out for next year is IOTAHeroes, a Web3 gaming experience that has joined the Touchpoint Open Builders Program to enable the IOTA community to have some fun with a casual RPG while engaging in Play2Earn activities. If training heroes and sending them out on adventures in the big bad world to hunt for loot and develop new weapons sounds appealing, this could be the Web3 game for you! We’ll let IOTAHeroes explain in more detail.
Whatever 2023 has in store for the Play to Earn market, IOTAHeroes is shaping up to be a fun addition to the genre and we’re pleased to welcome them to Touchpoint and the IOTA ecosystem. Check out their website at www.iotaheroes.com, where you can sign up for the email waitlist.
IOTAHeroes joins the Touchpoint Open Builders Program, offering participants a community of like-minded builders, direct access to funding, experts, knowledge, and general support to launch and scale the next generation of decentralized applications and infrastructure on the Shimmer networks.

Shimmer is an L1 innovation network providing the core building blocks for a scalable, modular multi-chain architecture. Similar to the IOTA network, Shimmer is built on a UTXO-based parallelized, directed acyclic graph (DAG), guaranteeing higher scalability than conventional Blockchains. At the same time, Shimmer ensures interoperability and composability of L2 smart contract chains, capable of connecting any type of L2 smart contract chain anchored to it. With its unique tokenization framework, Shimmer will become a multi-asset ledger for feeless minting and transfer of native assets without middlemen or crippling gas fees.
The native token of Shimmer is SMR, which serves as the network’s economic backbone, facilitating value transactions and interactions within the Shimmer ecosystem. Shimmer users use the SMR token to launch new DeFi applications, DEXs, NFTs, DAOs, and other dApps.
