3. How can crypto games go mainstream, with Illuvium

4 main questions are answered by Paul Baron and Crypto Stache, crypto gaming influencers.

1. How big do you think crypto games can become, and in what timeline?
2. What are the biggest headwinds for crypto gaming to become mainstream?
3. What can the crypto games industry do better to accelerate adoption?
4. In your perfect world, what does the crypto games space look like 10 years from now?


4. Tokenise Virtual Economies by Salvatore azr

When it comes to economies, engagement is the key to success. The total value a product or service can generate is ultimately determined by its engagement. Simply put, if no one’s using something, that thing doesn’t generate value.
Today, if you lose the motivation to own a digital copy of a game, you’re not allowed to sell it. We have the ability to take the tradable aspects from the physical world and replicate them in the digital world, but publishers choose not to.
