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

59. Regions — Shardbluff Labyrinth
Shardbluff Labyrinth is a region characterised by the eponymous shard-like mountains rising from the ground as if the ocean had compressed the entire Eastern continent. Long, impassable rock sections jut from the ground. Travelling via the North Sea would be faster, but for Leviathan patrolling the coast.

In Part 2 you learned how Immutable X sits as a layer 2 on top of the Ethereum blockchain. In this part, we’ll dive deeper into how Immutable X enables Illuvium to offer gas-free transactions
If Immutable X is on Ethereum, why isn’t there gas?
Here’s the simple answer: Immutable X covers the gas for you! Behind the scenes, Immutable X batches up transactions and is able to pay a cheaper rate to Ethereum for a bulk of transactions.
53. Region — Taiga Boreal
Look and Feel
Taiga Boreal is a snowy and icy mountainous region on the northern tip of the west island. Thick clouds are prominent as they roll through, morphing and dissipating around the mountain ranges. The climate is freezing except for an isolated area to the north edge of the world. Tied together by a fast-frozen lake and an extensive tunnel and geyser system beneath the ice, the site grants access to various other areas in the Region.

Good release day, Kingdom!
Obviously, this is the headliner for the day. Jarek the Hatcher has officially set up shop in the East marketplace and he’s ready to incubate and hatch your blue and grey eggs. Choose your offering carefully because it will determine how long your eggs have to incubate and their rarity chance. Each option costs a different level of JEWEL, Gold, and Tears, in addition to the egg-specific materials.
Greetings to all in the kingdoms! This week was a busy week with the opening of the Hatchery and the ability to hatch blue and grey eggs. Our Heroes have been busy getting to know all their new pets.
The Front-end Team spent the last 2 weeks plugging in all of the amazing assets for egg hatching that many of you in Serendale have been enjoying this week. Additionally, they plugged in the beautiful new art style of the Marketplace. Make sure you take time to look around.

52. Immutable X deep-dive — Part 2: How Layer 1 and Layer 2 work together

Part 2: NFTs — A curious case of Utility
In our previous article, we gave a brief introduction to what NFTs (Non-Fungible Tokens) are about. For this part of the series, we will be diving deep into the utility, both existing and potential, of NFT technology, and how it stands to change the world as we know it.
What exactly is utility?
Previously, we have mentioned that NFTs are tokens with metadata attached (such as artwork). NFTs with utility are those with a use for it outs
Last week Nat Elison wrote a wonderful article on Crypto Unicorns in which he discussed his thoughts on the game as well as our tokenomics. While he largely gave a positive review his analysis of RBW fell short. To his credit, the whitepaper only gives a bare outline and we’ve predominantly circulated updates and details via AMAs. Our hope is this document can be a reference for people today as well as new entrants into our economy in the future.
Why not burn RBW?
