There’s a new game in town, and it seems the Irish are lucky, especially since they’ll be listing their tokens on Uniswap on St. Patrick’s Day.

Choosing such a lucky date for the debut could explain why the team behind Lepricon, a blockchain-based gaming platform for predictive games, closed its starting round and private rounds in just a few days, ending the process seven times oversubscribed.

“When the word got around about what we did and why we were inundated with instant messages and emails from potential investors,” said Stephen Browne, Co-Founder and COO. “We flew past our soft canopy in less than a week and shortly afterwards we were sold out. We only have public sales ahead of us and will hit our hard cap. “

The question is why all that interest? There are two possible reasons.

First, Lepricon isn’t just another DeFi service aimed at the core crypto community. Their core business is games. Joshua Galloway, Founder and CEO, explains, “We believe that gaming is the first killer app to take over the blockchain mainstream.”

He continues, “Players understand in-game currencies and in-game items that are rare and unique. It’s easy to route them to cryptocurrencies and NFTs from there. As soon as they play games with our in-game currency L3P, we can introduce them to the defi-elements of the platform and show them how to swap and use them. “

The second reason is much more human. The team behind Lepricon is experienced and attaches great importance to being anything but anonymous. If you add the ages of the CEO, COO and CMO you get more than 130. You asked us not to be too specific! Galloway has over 20 years of experience in video games, from AAA studios to mobile and social casinos. Browne is a retired attorney who has worked in the digital assets space for a number of years. Phil Ingram, Chief Marketing Officer, who describes himself as a survivor of the original dotcom boom, has 30 years of marketing and branding experience.

Lepricon has also assembled an impressive crew of experts to act as advisors. This includes video game consultant Frank Yu, who oversaw the original Xbox launch in Asia. Jacky Lee, a project leader for the NFT’s Cryptokitties; and Andrew Pearson, one of the world’s foremost experts and published author on forecasting markets.

What exactly does this very experienced team do?

Galloway describes it this way: “Lepricon offers both sides of the coin. On the one hand, we offer a hyper-casual and entertaining gaming experience on a mobile-first platform. On the other hand, our operational token L3P offers central defi elements with the possibility of participating in the liquidity pools that keep the machine running. “

Galloway animates when he talks about Lepricon’s plans to issue NFTs. “We want all of our community members [holders of L3P] to have the opportunity to collect NFTs. Some will be of value as rarities in a set, others with in-game benefits, and the top performing will offer owners significant benefits on our DeFi platform, such as: B. Greatly reduced or no swap fees. “He adds,” Of course, all NFTs are sold on the open market for you to earn your status or buy! “

What are the next steps for Lepricon once the token sales and Uniswap listing are complete?

“Our first game is a card prediction game called KQJ,” replies Galloway. “You win by guessing the next card correctly, but as more people play the pool will add a discount on the price of Bitcoin. Win three times in a row and you can buy this Bitcoin on the blocked card – at a discount. “

Lepricon plans to release a game quarterly after KQJ, which will be released at the end of March this year. In the pipeline are Bitpool, where players predict whether the price of Bitcoin will go up or down, and FansPredict, where players make predictions about real and esports events.

In addition to developing content for the gaming platform, Lepricon was busy putting together a healthy cohort of strategic partners to create a venue suitable for a hyper-casual experience that adds value and value to the L3P operational token. RioDeFi is developing a polkadot parachute that enables over 3000 transactions per second with significantly reduced gas charges. “Players need to be able to get into games, play, and cash out. Polkadot makes it possible, ”explains Galloway.

Lepricon also works with the DeFi platform. MANTRA DAO to provide a solution that allows L3P holders to use their tokens as soon as the listing on Uniswap is completed. Browne offers: “It has always been important to us that L3P is useful from day one, even as we expand our platform. Through our partnership with MANTRA DAO we can keep this promise. “

Galloway believes we are only at the beginning of a new world order created by the intersection of the gaming and blockchain industries. He says: “If the currency of a game is based on the blockchain and is not stored in a database, the power goes to the player because that is his money.”

He adds, “The future is a community and player-driven gambling economy.”

Lepricon will have its first public sale on March 15th on MANTRA DAO’s ZENDIT platform and on March 17th on Duck DAOs DuckSTARTER platform. Further information can be found in the Lepricon telegram channel
