Meanwhile, PUBG’s publisher Krafton Games has reportedly partnered up with Solana (SOL) Labs for an upcoming blockchain-based project. According to a press release, this partnership is expected to bring NFT and other crypto blockchain gaming based services to PUBG.
The global crypto market cap increased by 1.58 per cent to $1.95 trillion at 8.32 am. The global crypto volume too increased by 2.02 per cent to $98.44 billion, as per Coinmarketcap data.
“Bitcoin and Ether are trading sideways, however other major cryptocurrencies seem to be continuing the largely bullish trend. Currently, buyers remain active on pullbacks, thus maintaining the support levels intact,” says Gaurav Dahake, CEO and founder, Bitbns.
