The Bitcoin Empire project was started after David Thomas watched “The Rise and Rise of Bitcoin” a 2014 documentary. He developed an interest in crypto, and he thought it would be a fun project to parody. He had always been a fan of board and card games, and he pondered how he could create a card game that incorporates Bitcoin. In his game, each player would become a famous bitcoin personality. The bitcoins would then be represented by face down cards.
He began his project by drawing on decks of poker cards using a permanent market and came up with a collection game, which was not much fun. He then realized that to make his game fun, he had to reward players that developed characters and punished those who ignore skills and only collected bitcoins. After the creation of Lawsuit, Smear Campaign, and Hack cards, the Bitcoin Empire was born.
The Bitcoin Empire Journey
The first edition of the Bitcoin Empire was funded via Kickstarter in November 2016. Later on, it was taken to retail. The second edition, which was dubbed “To The Moon” received funding in February 2018.
In December of 2017, the first mainstream use case of a non-fungible token standard was witnessed via CryptoKitties. With the blockchain technology established, the Bitcoin Empire has decided to move from a real-world tabletop game to one on the blockchain.
The Bitcoin Empire Brand And Press Coverage
The Bitcoin Empire Brand, which was conceived in 2016, is already well-established. The Bitcoin Empire tabletop card game was funded via Kickstarter and currently retail on crypto-themed stores. In terms of press coverage, the Bitcoin Empire has already received recognition in numerous online publications.
