Bitcoin Mining Simulator “Crypto Crisis” Allows Users to Revisit BTC Blockchain's First Decade

    A cryptocurrency mining game was launched back in October that simulates the Bitcoin network back on its early days. The game was designed by Armoured Beans and it can play in a simulated environment as if they were mining in 2009.

    This game allows users to purchase new Bitcoin mining rigs and equipment, improve their rigs and also electricity consumption. At the same time, to support their operations they need to sell part of their Bitcoins.

    Although Crypto Crisis was released as an early access game users are already playing while it is being developed. Two of the latest updates in November allowed users to have new models for utility equipment.

    The summary of the game reads as follows:

    “[You] have fallen into debt with very little to your name, and you decide to start Bitcoin mining to turn your life around – Compete for and increase your share of block rewards by building and upgrading your mining rigs while carefully managing your resources.”

    Users need to take into account electricity spending as well. The game works in a similar way as Sims or Civilization. AS the games continue players are able to improve their mining operations and unlocking new maps to locate more miners.

    As this is a simulation, users can start mining Bitcoin using a simple CPU and move forward buying new GPUs and ASIC machines.

    There are four 3D maps available to play with 20 different mining chassis types. There are several rigs to choose from and more than 170 different CPU, GPU and ASIC parts. At the same time, users can participate in a ranking showing their progress to other players.

    The comments provided by early users seem to be very positive and allow the company to know the weak points of it or what to change. However, there are some individuals that saw their game completely froze during some parts.

    At the moment, mining cryptocurrencies in real life seem to be a difficult thing. During the last few months, virtual currencies plummeted to new lows in more than a year. Bitcoin hash rate has also dropped 50% from its all-time high in August. However, difficulty rates continue to fall amid this bear market in the space.

    At the time of writing, Bitcoin’s hash rate is 31 million TH/s.
