Who we are

Game7 is a community formed to accelerate the adoption of Web3 gaming through crowdsourcing, to create public goods that can be owned by many. It’s a home for those who want to influence, shape, and build a better gaming industry, where the interests of players and developers are aligned.We are building a gaming nation, one that represents over 3 billion players and $200 billion in annual economic activity.

Our nation is governed by meritocracy, a system where a citizen’s contributions, not capital, grant them status, rewards and influence. It’s this philosophy that will create a more equitable and sustainable gaming future.

As part of this, we are building targeted games, products and offerings that specifically address the challenges that the industry desperately needs solutions for.
