Despite its great potential, Web3 gaming still remains a huge challenge for both developers and gamers.

Technical complexity: Integrating blockchain and other Web3 technologies into games can be complex and require new skills and knowledge.

Scalability: Some blockchains have scalability issues that can lead to high transaction fees and slow confirmation times. This impacts the user experience.

Volatility: The value of NFTs can be highly volatile, which can present risks for players investing in these assets.

Market sensitivity: Many blockchain games see their activity drop when crypto prices fall.

Regulation: The legal status of digital assets, such as NFTs and cryptocurrencies, is still unclear in many countries, which can lead to complications for developers and players.

Player protection: Increased monetisation and the possibility of real winnings can drive some people to compulsive gambling behaviour.

Security: Even though blockchain provides security guarantees, applications, marketplaces and wallets can be vulnerable to attacks, scams and fraud.

Barrier to entry: The learning curve to understand cryptocurrencies, wallets and transactions may put off some traditional players.

Preserving the entertainment value: It is essential that games remain fun and engaging above all. Too much integration of economic mechanisms could detract from the gaming experience.
