Phil Ingram appointed CEO of Lepricon
There are some changes happening in Lepricon we wanted to let you know about.
Joshua Galloway, our founder and current CEO will be stepping down from that role and assuming the role of Chief Evangelist. Josh’s contacts in the game industry are second to none and this change frees him up to look for opportunities to extend Lepricon’s reach in the industry he knows so well. It will also allow him to travel internationally without the current lockdown situation in Hong Kong becoming an issue.
Phil Ingram, currently our Chief Marketing Officer, assumes the role of CEO immediately and will focus on reshaping our strategy in the best way to take the company forward. This includes a top-down review of the entire Lepricon ecosystem as well as future plans and the company’s roadmap. Emily Ho, previously Product Marketing Manager for Lepricon, has been promoted to the position of Director of Marketing and will assume the responsibilities previously held by Phil.
Lepricon is reimagining the possibilities for entertainment through blockchain technology and seeking to establish the general acceptance of player-owned economies in games. We believe that gaming can and should be the first killer-on ramp to mainstream adoption, and Lepricon’s stated mission is to catalyse this outcome.
Our activities break into three distinct tracks; technology, entertainment and DeFi.
At the core of this strategy is Lepricon’s own high-speed, gas-less Ethereum-compatible side chain, Leprichain. We are developing software solutions in the form of SDKs, which will empower mainstream game development studios to incorporate blockchain technology into their games. These solutions are built upon and powered by Leprichain, with the intent to create a drag and drop blockchain solution for mainstream game developers.
Lepricon is developing several in-house entertainment activities that operate on Leprichain, including our collection of arcade and carnival games at Lepricon City. The first games are straightforward, but we will develop more complex games that demonstrate Leprichain’s capabilities over time. We will leverage these demonstration games to encourage third party dApp developers to deploy on Leprichain.
Leprichain and all of the dApps that run on it are powered by our ERC-20 / BEP-20 utility token, L3P. Lepricon’s DeFi portal will enable L3P holders to manage their tokens, participate in governance, and benefit from advanced yield-earning activities. Lepricon’s DeFi portal will launch towards the end of the fourth quarter of 2022.
