Do I need cryptocurrency to use OP Arcade?
Technically, no. You can play the practice games anytime for free. Near, however, is required to participate in tournaments and for other future app features.
Why do I need to connect my wallet?
In order to perform blockchain transactions you will need to use your wallet account from NEAR, Metamask, or any other Web 3 Provider. We will not process any transactions from your wallet without a signed message from you, confirming that you are the owner of the account.
