A full-fledged MMOFPS/RPG game using Unreal Engine 4 is something entirely different though, and that is exactly what Element Coin will be offering to the cryptocurrency community.

Back in the 90’s, Austin Hill recruited Adam Back to join his company called Zero-Knowledge Systems. The company’s goal was to commercialize cypherpunk privacy-enhancing technologies such as anonymous encrypted networking and Mr. Brands’ pioneering protocol for e-cash.

The company did have many successes, but the market just was not ready to accept Zero-Knowledge Systems’ e-cash work at that time.
