This Week in Crypto Games Biggest News

Notcoin token launches: Finally, Thursday marked the debut of Notcoin’s NOT token via The Open Network (TON), four months after the launch of the game that runs on Telegram. Together with the largest gaming token launch of 2024 to date, the massive airdrop generated trading volume exceeding one billion dollars. The popular Telegram game Notcoin put a halt to its gameplay in April in preparation for the upcoming token launch, which was scheduled for April 20. To guarantee a flawless launch, the developers postponed the launch date. It seems to have paid off, as no significant problems have been reported.

GameStop Revival: One of the main characters from the infamous 2021 GameStop short squeeze, Roaring Kitty, made a comeback to Twitter on Sunday, three years after the short squeeze was documented in a documentary and made into a feature film. As a result, trading in the video game retailer’s stock was repeatedly halted and its price skyrocketed. This meant that numerous GameStop-related meme coins saw enormous gains as well, as we should have expected by now. However, the company’s stock fell 26% on Friday after it disclosed plans to sell up to 45 million shares, which caused the hype train to come to an abrupt halt.

Nyan Heroes token: Nyan Heroes, a Solana-based hero shooter game, will launch its NYAN token via exchange partner Bybit on Tuesday, May 21. Since the game is currently hosting its second pre-alpha playtest with play-to-airdrop rewards through the Epic Games Store, more information about the airdrop is anticipated soon.

Players will compete for a portion of the prizes on this stage by showcasing their talents.
