With the changes and updates being made to Season 0 of LOCGame, we hope that you have been enjoying the game. Be rest assured that we’re working hard to deliver on our goals of bringing you the best gaming experience.

Since 2019, blockchain has disrupted the global gaming industry. Unlike traditional video games, the intersection of crypto financing and gaming currently provides gamers with the benefits of earning financial incentives for playing their favourite blockchain games.

GameFi is currently the hottest niche in the crypto industry. And we cannot speak of this growth without mentioning the visionaries whose foresight has resulted in some of the most intriguing blockchain games today.

We’re pleased to introduce the GameFi Founder, a character inspired by a real-life crypto gaming enthusiast and serial entrepreneur, co-founder and CEO of Illuvium, Kieran Warwick.

Character Analysis

Keiran Warwick is the CEO of Illuvium — an open-world roleplaying blockchain game. Early on, Keiran proved himself a serial entrepreneur, by becoming the youngest Harvey Norman franchisee in Australia. He also founded the Burger collective, a community of 20,000 users for food reviews.

As an early adopter of cryptocurrencies, his fascination with the technology led him to join the Australian company Blueshyft — an Australian in-store digital currency payment gateway.

In the early days of virtual land ownership, and with limited use cases for their utility, Keiran made an early investment in the Axie Infinity metaverse. A year later in 2021, he sold off a virtual block of land in the metaverse making a 9200% profit.

Keiran is a huge proponent of crypto mass adoption. He has been vocal about the bright future for NFTs. He nursed the vision to launch a DeFi project that would revolutionize its industry and, by June of 2021, he began to pitch the idea of an AAA blockchain game. By Q1 of 2022, Illuvium, was released on Ethereum.

Keiran’s commitment to developing a sustainable play-to-earn ecosystem, and positioning the GameFi industry to attract more stakeholders have earned him the admiration of the crypto community. Therefore, we couldn’t consider anyone else more suitable for the GameFi Founder card than Kieran himself.

The GameFi Founder card is certainly one card that you need in your LOCGame arsenal as it is one of the few cards that can attack in all 4 directions! Be sure to check him out on our Card Library or purchase him on our marketplace.
