Are NFT games not popular?

lack of legislation

NFT fraud is also quite prevalent these days, so you have to invest at your own risk no matter what.

high threshold

balance of supply and demand

NFT is both a business and an investment. Investing can lead to losses, so many people don’t invest because they don’t want to be hurt. Also, NFTs are affected by cryptocurrencies, so many people dislike cryptocurrencies with high liquidity.
