ChainRepublik is new software. The game is running on its own blockchain. It was written from scratch in the past two years and is not fork of an existing software. It aims to create the frst Massive Multiplayer Online Economic Strategy game with no need for a central administrator or central server, where players are rewarded for their achievements.
The distinguishing characteristic of ChainRepublik, which is absent in any 99.9% of existing online games, will be the possibility of monetizing the time spent in the game. In other words, players will be able to not only enjoy the game but also to earn from it, as well. It is and will always be open source It's also important to realize the difference ICO coins or tokens these days are Ethereum-based ERC-20 tokens or similar. All these startups are still centralized businesses. They normally have an address, an advisory board, a team, CEOs and if the startup goes bankrupt, the value of the 'token' will tend to zero in no time.
ChainRepublik is a decentralized p2p network of nodes with no company behind and no central server. This makes it impervious to regulation on a global scale.
ChainRepublik Coin (CRC) is not a 'token' but a real decentralized cryptocurrency, powering a virtual world impossible to stop. ChainRepublik has its own blockchain and has nothing to do with Ethereum tokens.
