Hello ionomy community,
It’s been nearly two years since ionomy.com and ION changed the way games are played and made.
The ionomy Team is proud of the accomplishments in partnership with the ionomy community, ionomy Studios, and the ION Core Development Team. Together, we developed a high-tech cryptocurrency and financial platform. We built the infrastructure for a thriving game development ecosystem. Now we’re entering a new phase: The Business of Fun.
Updated 2018 Roadmap
In 2017, the team shared its vision for the PWR-GRD — ionomy’s full service support for game developers. Today, we’re delighted to share our strategy for how to bring that vision to life.
The new plan engages every level of the ION ecosystem, beginning with the systems and developer tools that drive the PWR-GRD. And on the front end, a major makeover for the ionomy.com platform.
Ready to ride? Buckle up! — It’s gonna be fun.
