The video game industry keeps growing, and so does the cryptocurrency industry. These two can feel like a match made in heaven, but unfortunately there are not a lot of bitcoin-related games out there for us to play. To help you in your search for the best bitcoin games out there, here are a few worth trying out – excluding faucets and casino games.
5. BitJoy games
Bitcoin rewards platform BitJoy has a few entertaining mobile games one can play in its free time. The games include an endless runner dubbed “Bitcoin Pixel Runner” and a modern version of Frogger, called “Bitcoin Froggy.” These games are great to kill some free time but Bitjoy made them a little more interesting by integrating rewards in them. As you play, you will earn small amounts of satoshis whenever you can collect them. Amounts can then withdraw once you reach a set threshold.
4. Bitcoin millionaire
Bitcoin millionaire is, essentially, a bitcoin-related version of ‘Who Wants to Be a Millionaire.’ It features various levels filled with questions that get increasingly difficult and tests your knowledge on the topic, effectively combining entertainment and education, and making it a very attractive option if you are looking to kill some free time while proving how much you know about bitcoin and cryptocurrencies. The game is available for desktop and can be played on your browser.
BitQuest is essentially a public Minecraft, a very popular MMORPG (Massive Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game), server that uses bitcoin in its currency system. The game uses bits, a fraction of a bitcoin, as its ‘official’ currency, and these can be obtained by killing monsters or trading items, for example.
The money is stored in a standard bitcoin wallet and, even with the cryptocurrency involved, the goal is to have fun and enjoy the experience. The game seems to be regularly updated, and has its own subreddit with an active community.
2. Bitcoin Billionaire
Bitcoin Billionaire is a mobile game that allows players to earn, sell, and trade mock bitcoins. The game is all about progress, as you start off with nothing and have to build up a bitcoin fortune while significantly improving your surroundings.
The game is an idle clicker, meaning you you play by clicking. You can keep on earning mock bitcoins even when you are not using the game’s upgrades. The game is full of content to help keep players motivated, as it is even possible to get a T-Rex pet at one point.
1. Spells of Genesis
Spells of Genesis, a game developed by Swiss-based company EverdreamSoft, is arguably one of the first games to truly adopt bitcoin and blockchain technology. It uses BitCrystals as its in-game premium currency, and includes cards as assets that are not just stored on the player’s account, but on the blockchain, meaning they truly belong to the player. These can then be traded outside Spells of Genesis in other games, for example.
The game itself is a mobile trading card game with arcade-style aspects. It also uses blockchain as the main inspiration for its storyline, according to the game’s website.
