In 2021, Blockchain Gaming swept the world. Tokenized assets (both NFT, and digital currencies) were a new phenomenon begging for product/market fit, and found it within a niche ripe for disruption. Previously, gamers traded their time and money for entertainment, but now new startups were moving the hurdle of money over to the reward side of the equation. Vast communities in Asia, India, South America embraced this idea, many earning more than their full time jobs by playing games a few hours a

This article details the technical aspects of Illuvium's recently concluded Land Sale, focusing on the backend technology and approach. Warning, it's a long one. I've tried to put enough detail in here so that other teams looking to run a similar NFT sale can take away valuable information and ensure the success of their sale. Apologies to the casual reader!
Illuvium's first Land Sale, where we sold ~20,000 NFTs representing virtual plots of land in the Illuvium homeworld, was

We have compiled a list of terminologies specifically relating to the STEPN ecosystem and beyond to help you navigate the crypto world a bit better!
Governance — Phase 1.5

Upfront, we acknowledge that building a self-governing community is a monumental undertaking — one that we hope we are all willing to experience together. Our hope is for our structure to evolve as we learn and grow together a
This is the third and final installation of our series, STEPN: Building the Future in a Bear Market.
In previous parts, we discussed two of the fundamental ways we seemed to achieve “overnight success.” We did this by working hard and long hours and actively “building the future” ahead of us, instead of just sitting around and trying to speculate at what would happen.
The first portion of our series is Part 1: How We Created a Blue Ocean Market. It covers how we pioneered the move-and-

Patch Notes Update — June 15, 2022
Good release day, Kingdom!
DFK Duel is a mini-game that gives Heroes the chance to compete using Hero Stats, Backgrounds, and Elements. A winner is decided based on random selections performed by the Duel. For Roll One, the Duel will select a Hero Stat and give each Hero points equal to the Hero’s Stat points. For example, if the Duel selects the WIS stat and the Hero has eight WIS, eight is the point value they receive from
In our previous article, we laid out our philosophy on how to predict the future.
Everyone wants to know what will happen in the future, but beyond a few lucky guesses, no one really knows what is around the corner.
Even the best of the best, experts with all of their fancy financial models, are unable to figure out which direction the stock market is heading tomorrow.
As Jeff Stibel of the Harvard Business Review lays out:
But instead of throwing a bunch of resources, time
Everyone should participate in the value they help create.
This is the core belief behind many Axie initiatives like AXS leaderboard rewards, Lunacian Codes, IRL meetup grants, and more. These programs deploy support back to Lunacians everywhere while helping to further align incentives.
Today, we begin testing a framework that provides valuable support back to our community of contributors and content creators:

Can you tell us a little bit about your background – how did you get your start as an artist?
Hmm. I can't tell you exactly how it all started. It wasn't that I saw the Mona Lisa and it shocked me into starting to draw. It all just came by itself. When I was a k

A Sunken Class Short Story
The ocean is full of scary and foreboding creatures, hiding in various different corners of the seven seas. Tales abound of the monsters that inhabit these desolate parts of the ocean, preying on anybody and everything foolish enough to venture into their territory. Yet as with any dangerous proposition, there usually lies the tantalizing prospect of invaluable treasure that lies beyond for any adventurer brave enough to risk it all.
It is wi
