Magic Eden NFT marketplace hires Chris Akhavan as a CGO


  • Chris Akhavan has joined Magic Eden, a well-known cross-chain NFT marketplace, as its first chief gaming officer.
  • Akhavan is a pioneer in the Web3 gaming sector and served as the chief business officer of Forte, a blockchain gaming firm.
  • Akhavan has had a variety of positions in the Web2 and Web3 gaming sectors. He was once the chief revenue officer of the mobile gaming startup Glu Mobile.

The latest hire by Magic Eden is part of its strategy to promote growth by luring gaming communities and collaborations and fostering the growth of both platform users and platform games.

In order to encourage the creation of intriguing new games and international brands in Web3, the NFT marketplace recently expanded its operations to the Polygon network. Akhavan will lead Magic Eden’s effort to include new players and games in its ecosystem.

The NFT market intends to maintain the pace by leading innovative Web3 gaming tactics, hiring executives, growing its staff, and making advances in the industry. Blockchain games are doing remarkably well in spite of the market’s apprehension and ambiguity.

According to the official release, Magic Eden launched its Polygon entrance with a new launchpad and marketplace, both of which will be live this month. It should come as no surprise that Magic Eden is attempting to grow its business and pique the interest of multi-chain communities through usefulness, fresh initiatives, and more.

New games, awards, and a thriving community are all things the new executive is anxious to introduce to gaming communities. To dramatically increase game studios’ exposure, income, and accessibility in the Web3 markets, Akhavan has intended to create products that connect game developers with players.

Why Akhavan is enthusiastic about integrating traditional gaming with Web3 is clear from the current market sentiment in the blockchain gaming industry. He wants to change the economies of the current games to include asset ownership. Akhavan’s experience in Web3 and Web2 gaming will play a crucial role for Magic Eden as it intends to integrate game developers and gamers into its ecosystem.
