The CEO of Mythical Games said that the firm will work as a game studio and a publisher. Mythical aims to achieve this by working with other developers that want to develop in-game economies. He said that these player-owned economies might be as simple as using blockchain to tokenize game objects.

During an interview with GameDaily, the CEO said that gaming comes first for the firm. He said blockchain is placed in a second proposition. However, he said blockchain is a very fascinating technology. Adding that it will enable the gaming industry to move into the new generation of ownership.
