As we venture into 2023, we wonder whether GameFi will continue as the industry’s next revolution or suffer the fate of a “bubble burst.” The Vietnamese game industry, once working behind the scenes, has now emerged as a bright spot in the GameFi trend. The Flappy Bird event from nine years ago proved Vietnam’s creativity and potential, and today it stands as a driving force in the global GameFi landscape.

Despite challenges faced by the global GameFi market in 2022, the Vietnamese game industry remains resilient. Industry expert, Mr. An, advises developers to focus on optimizing operating costs and surviving market downturns. This stage of adversity separates the good from the bad, where only passionate and valuable projects prevail.

Axie Infinity serves as an exemplary success story, overcoming the “crypto winter” in 2018 to become a GameFi unicorn in 2021. The lessons learned from this journey highlight the importance of strong product development roadmaps, human resources, and market preparation.

Highlight 3: AI as the New Trend in the Game Industry

Amidst the resounding success and challenges of GameFi, the industry is already looking towards the future, where artificial intelligence (AI) emerges as the new frontier. AI’s potential is boundless, promising to revolutionize gameplay and scenarios. Imagine interacting with characters that possess genuine intelligence, making the game world fluid and immersive, akin to real life.
