Most Innovative NFT & Gaming Project (Winner: Pudgy Penguins 🏆)

The award for Most Innovative NFT & Gaming Project dives into the projects that are blending the world of NFTs with art and gaming, creating new realms of interactive entertainment on the blockchain.


Winner: Pudgy Penguins 🏆


Launched in October 2022, Blur rapidly became the top choice for NFT trading, tailored for high-volume transactions with no fees and flexible royalties. It features advanced analytics for portfolio management and introduced Blend, a P2P lending service using NFTs as collateral for ETH loans, providing fixed rates for borrowers and yield opportunities for lenders.


Pudgy Penguins showcased how NFTs can create value beyond just digital art, offering holders exclusive merchandise, events, and IP rights. Their successful venture into physical toys, highlighted by a $9 million crowdfunding campaign and $500,000 in revenue in just two days, underscores their innovative approach. The introduction of Lil Pudgys, miniatures of the original collection, further advanced their ecosystem.


While the NFT hype evaporated in the bear market, the BendDAO team kept their heads down and focused on building new products. By launching the first peer-to-pool lending solution, they solved the liquidity friction plaguing the holders seeking to unlock value inside their NFTs. BendDAO never abandoned niche communities that supported early development. The platform offers liquidity access to smaller artists alongside blue-chip collections.


After a year-long beta, Big Time launched its in-game economy "Preseason" last October, quickly becoming a leading Web3 game. The game introduces a player-owned economy, shifting away from traditional pay-to-win models to ensure fair competition based on skill and strategy, making gaming more inclusive.


Our next nominee, Immutable, enhanced gaming access in two key ways: by eliminating transaction fees with zkEVM technology and by simplifying entry with the Passport wallet, which allows familiar login methods. Partnerships with gaming companies enhanced the blockchain gaming experience.
