During Devolver's 2018 Big Fancy Press Conference, the chaos from last year continued with some legit game reveals, and a few surprises. One of these surprises comes in the form of a "Lootboxcoin," which is Devolver's take on loot boxes and cryptocurrency.
The Lootboxcoin is actually for sale in the Devolver Digital store. The price started at $131 but has since dropped to $126, although we've had a hard time seeing whether or not we can actually buy one as the Devolver site was flooded with visitors shortly after the Lootboxcoin's reveal.
Despite this, the site describes the Lootboxcoin as follows:
“The officially unofficial Lootboxcoin from Devolver Digital as seen in the Devolver Digital 2018 E3 Press Conference. Please note that this coin is 2.5” in diameter and has no actual value and by no means is to be considered cryptocurrency or a currency of any kind. You can’t buy anything with it. In fact, it’s insane for you to really buy it unless you want to prove your loyalty to Fork Parker, Nina Struthers (Chief Synergy Officer), and the Devolver Digital executive board.”
