Crypto games often face criticism for being unpolished and lacking quality, but Illuvium is unlikely to face this issue. Built by a team of 220 people, $35 million has been reportedly invested over 2 years in building this AAA Sci-Fi game world - and they’re expected to launch their games this year

Today, we have Kieran Warwick, Co-Founder of Illuvium, to share with us: 

  • Building the next big gaming franchise like Pokemon and League of Legends
  • Why crypto games are better than traditional games
  • How the Illuvium community could have a share in Illuvium's revenue
