MatchBoxDAO – a group of developers, artists and designers building on-chain gaming infrastructure with StarkNet – has announced the launch of MatchBox Arena, an esports experience specifically designed for developer participation. Calling it the “World Cup of the Web3 companies,” the team said the gaming tournament is designed to see which company has the best technical team.
We are finally launching: “Matchbox Arena”✨
With “Battle of Titans” as the first CTF competition released on the platform, tomorrow we will officially release the “Matchbox Arena” where players can upload their code.https://t.co/vGbEuyzus0

Titled “0xMonaco: Battle of Titans,” the tournament will bring together Web3 developers from companies such as Uniswap, Ledger, Polygon, Chainlink, and Near. The team said it will be streamed live and will feature esports commentators.
On-chain developer games take a unique approach and focus on strategy games where players use smart contracts to encode their strategies. 0xMonaco and future games of its kind will require high technical skills, creativity and quick adaptability to win. MatchBoxDAO promised to create an enjoyable experience for developers and entertain viewers through video simulations that show the actual code logic during a round.
MatchBox Arena plans to host closed tournaments for the best teams in Web3 and open challenges that anyone can participate in. Players can enter the arena, upload their code strategy and participate in rounds with other players. In addition, players and spectators will be able to follow the progress of their favorite team on the leaderboard and watch video recordings of the matches.
The Web3 ecosystem continues to influence and evolve the gaming landscape, and game developers are now looking beyond gameplay and focusing more on the gaming aspect of their platforms.
On January 7, Cointelegraph reported this artificial intelligence could also affect Web3-based gaming. OpenAI could potentially allow developers to create better art, more challenging encounters, and superior storytelling, bringing an immersive and richer experience to players.
