Cloud( analysts ) Point of view : It's important to think about games from the perspective of first principles , People play games because it's fun . majority P2E Games are short-term money making tools , But if you can predict that you will like playing a game very much , It's easier to build faith .

Generally speaking ,Dragonfly Cap Will not be sold when the lock expires , Because they believe that in the long run , You can make a lot of money in this field , People buy... In a bear market BTC and ETH, And sell in the bull market to get rich , But rich people are those who buy early and hold long-term .
