Coin Artist Interview – Video Games & NFTs | Marguerite deCourcelle – Alexandre Raffin

Today, we’re chatting with Marguerite deCourcelle @coin_artist, CEO and founder of Blockade Games, creator of the new RPG “Neon District”.

Marguerite is known for having created crypto puzzles. Her most famous work is “Torched H34R7S”, a Bitcoin puzzle artwork worth $50K, solved after 3 years. It received international publicity from BBC, Bloomberg, MIT Tech Review, NPR, IBTimes, Venturebeat, and Motherboard.
Her work inspired thousands of people to work cooperatively towards a shared goal.
But Marguerite wanted her own gaming studio, which is how Blockade Games was born.
Blockade Games is a leading blockchain video game development studio.
Blockade is producing Neon District, a flagship video game franchise, that introduces mainstream players to blockchain with a seamless and engrossing user experience.
Leveraging the latest in decentralized technologies, players battle to progress through a sci-fi dystopia and earn in-game NFT (non-fungible token) items.
With blockchain games, digital collectibles have all the benefits associated with traditional physical collectibles, but can also be so much more.
