Introduction

Elixir is a new gaming platform by Satoshis Games where indie developers can:

  • distribute their desktop games (like on Steam and Itch.io);
  • run crowdfunding campaigns (collecting Bitcoin or fiat currencies like € and $);
  • sell their games in exchange of Bitcoin or fiat currencies;
  • integrate their games with Bitcoin micro-transactions via Lightning Network using APItoshi (whose dashboard is directly accessible from Elixir).
