Illuvium co-founder shares plans for new ‘interoperable blockchain game’ model

Kieran Warwick, co-founder of the blockchain role-playing game Illuvium has lifted the curtain on a gaming concept he says has never been done before — the interoperable blockchain game (IBG).  Speaking to Cointelegraph during Token2049 in Singapore, Warwick said Illuvium has three games currently being built which will be underpinned by the same economy, governed by a single token (ILV),  and connected by the blockchain — making it an interoperable experience. “We’re building something that has never been done before not in the mainstream and not in Web3.”  IBG, a…
