Cryptocurrency mining is awful and quite tedious. In reality, there is nothing to do while miners work. If you have a miner at home, you know those things are power hungry, quite noisy, and they just sit there taking space in your house. Sure, miners will give you some coins back after a while, but unless you are ready to spend $10,000+ for a mining rig, you are looking at earning between 0.10 to 0.5 BTC per month at current block reward levels. If you want to see those numbers increase, you can join a cloud mining website or a pool mining website. Both have their benefit and drawbacks. But at the end of the day, they are just dull and boring places where you grind and pay fees for doing that.
Real Time Strategy
Gaming is well known for being a compelling place where you can get lost in a world that is unlike you have ever seen before. Whether it is avoiding a zerg rush or exploring the Nilfgaardian Empire, games are pure bliss. The Hash Rush Project is trying to merge both concepts in a single place. The RTS web-game will take advantage of our desire to explore and interact with compelling universes, and turn it into raw hash-power.
The way they will do that is quite simple. Player will build their mining colonies on the remote Hermeian system, using Rush Coins (RC), which are Ethereum ERC20 tokens. Real-time hash power fuels all the mining colonies. That means that as your mining camp expands, so does your hashing power in the real world. To avoid making this game a never ending grind, Hash Rush players will have single and multiplayer missions that will grant them bonuses which will help them maintain and develop their mining places.
If this sounds like the typical game where you spend money on it instead of making money from it, then you are wrong. The Hash Rush (HR) game is unique, in the sense that you will constantly be mining RC coins. You can decide on whether to use those coins in-game, or simply cash out and enjoy the profits. It is a terrific idea with lots of potentials which merge our love for video games with our willingness to spend hours exploring and adventuring.
ICO and the future
The people behind HR understand the size of the market and where it is heading. As reported in their white paper, the gaming industry that made $99.6Bn in 2016, which is 8.5% more than in 2015. Newzoo backs this data as well as the fact that the mobile gaming industry generated $38.6 billion in 2016 and it is responsible for 42% of all global game revenue. And while at HR will start as a desktop game, they are planning to move to mobile at a later date.
RC tokens will become available on August 16, 2017. However, the official Initial Coin Offering (ICO) will happen between September 13, 2017, and October 13, 2017. The minimum required for entry in the presale is 0.1 ETH. So if you are interested in knowing more, it is highly recommended to visit their website and read their white paper. This project has the makings of being something special, and prove that the blockchain can change the game we game forever.
