Lepricon.io CEO and founder Joshua Galloway has said the company was established to boost popularity for blockchain.
In a conversation with News Bitcoin, a media outlet dedicated to blockchain and gaming, he said the site was here to offer the community a taste of what it describes as “hyper-casual games” inspired by blockchain.
In a way, “people need to hear about blockchain as it relates to an activity that means something to them”, he said, and gaming could be one accessible way to achieve this on a mass scale.
Lepricon.io offers simple games inspired and powered by the blockchain technology, offering awards in cryptocurrencies.
Yet, it's growing and Galloway says that Lepricon.io will feature the new FansPredict esports/sports game as early as next year.
Galloway's transition to blockchain gaming comes after twenty years working on various social and mobile casino games. Through Lepricon.io he believes he can create real value by using blockchain.
The way it works, he says, is that when you take in-game currency on the blockchain, it already has real value. Lepricon.io doesn't draw the line there, though, and Galloway has confirmed that the platform will seek deeper involvement with the non-fungible tokens (NFTs) economy.
Yet, this story of success doesn't come without its challenges. On-chain speed and user experience are constant threads that Lepricon.io tugs at, looking for improvements. As of today, Lepricon's operating token is available on Uniswap.
