Why I'm Bullish

8-Ball Pool on Web3! The gameplay is very simple and a lot of people play 8-Ball Pool. It's very easy to tap on the existing 8-Ball Pool players and bring them to its Web3 counterpart.

Free-to-play and mobile-first. Good choice of platform and lowest barrier to entry. Game is very accessible to players and no capital is needed to start playing because of the different free-to-earn opportunities: 9 balls, spin the wheel, lucky shot.

Being built by people w/ a proven track record in game development. They are the same set of people that created and sold 8-Ball Pool to Miniclip (over $400M in revenue).

Scalability with their IP & expertise. They have game advisors from EA Games, Lockwood Publishing, Spil Games, and more. They plan on building more titles using their physics engine, with either Mini-golf, Pinball, or Pachinko in line.
