The vEmpire Team

Our team has an extensive background in the audio visual industry, stockbroking, marketing and storytelling.

This unique combination will enable us to produce some of the best blockchain-based games in the industry and our passion for decentralised technologies will fuel the fire for creating a more democratic DAO that can help govern the industry.
