Molyneux on The Verge
illustrating why blockchain and the famed designer are
a marriage made in heaven:
But what I am immensely proud of is if you make
something in your world and you then trade it to someone else, that item that
you make, whether it be a building, whether it be a worker, will carry with it
all the benefits that you imbued in it. And I think that’s what’s really
exciting for me is that the things you acquire on the blockchain will make your
world a better place. If you take a worker and you put that worker to work in a
mine, over time, that worker will become an expert miner. And then if you take
the worker and put him to work in the pub as a landlord, he’ll become an expert
landlord / miner. And that sort of experience flows through the whole of Legacy.
It’s an all-connected system.
