Our inaugural GAM3 Awards features over 30 members on its jury to help recognize the best "gam3s" in each of the 16 categories. The event takes place on December 15, and will be livestreamed across all our socials. It is time to get everyone familiar with each member of our jury. We got the opportunity to sit down with each of them to ask them a set questions to help you get to know them more personally, their favorite gaming moment growing up, what pushed them to make the jump into web3 gaming, and their outlook on the future of blockchain gaming.

Stats and research reports hold tons of valuable information for both the regular and advanced investors to understand the current situation of the web3 gaming industry and try to predict where it can go next form here. One of the current leaders in that aspect is Naavik, able to provide its 100+ portfolio of clients with a variety of services. This Includes business strategy, market research, due diligence, design, economy, tokenomics and UA consulting. Abhimanyu Kumar, the Co-Founder of Naavik, is a member of the GAM3 Awards jury and shared with us the moment he chose gaming as a career sector and anticipation of the industry's "Supercell moment."

What is your proudest gaming moment?

The birth of Naavik on January 1st, 2019.

What pushed you to transition into work in web3 and choose gaming as your sector of choice?

When I was 10, I visited the British Council Library in New Delhi, India, picked up a book on Adobe Flash, learnt the software in one afternoon and have never stopped making games ever since. Gaming has always been a passion of mine and I don’t see myself leaving the industry until I legally have to.

What excites you the most about the current state of web3 gaming?

That player-owned economies (I prefer this term over web3 gaming) can now unlock a whole new world and value vector for players, virtual asset ownership, which is something the industry has neither seen before nor designed products for, at scale.

Where do you see Naavik’s role in the future of web3 gaming?

Naavik is on a mission to enable games industry professionals to master the business of gaming. Currently, we do that through delivering the highest quality consulting services, the best research products and industry agenda defining content. Web3 gaming expands the definition of what games can be, and Naavik will continue to help companies realize the best version of web3 gaming’s future through the games and experiences they build.

If you could name one major milestone yet to happen to push web3 gaming adoption forward, what would it be?

One killer game. Web3 gaming is ripe for its Supercell moment.

When do you think web3 gaming will get that moment? Share this article and tag us on any of our socials to let us know.
