BitQuest

Bitquest is the first minecraft server with a Bitcoin denominated economy. The Bitquest community actually started out as an experiment of what creating a game with an economy that is based on real currency could do. The idea was brilliant and upon its launch, many people liked the idea and the platform quickly grew to become a major platform. The best way to get involved is to join Bitquest via minecraft 1.12. You can also join the Bitquest discord server to get the latest community news and also get the opportunity to talk to other players.

Bitquest Mechanics

Claiming Land

In Bitquest, plots are sold at 2,000 bits each. However, unlike buying in the market, the bits that you will actually spent on claiming land is considered a donation and the money will be spent to cater for server expenses. In order to claim a chunk, you are required to place a sign in the desired chunk that surrounds the name of the land with a caret.

Monsters

Players will be required to kill Bitquest spawned monsters in order to get bits. There are many entities that are considered monsters. They include cave spiders, blazes, and zombies, among many others. The level of a spawned monster actually depends on the distance between the player spawn location and the monster spawn location. Monsters can be killed in any standard way, the same way monsters are killed in vanilla minecraft. Each time you kill a monster, you get to earn bits.

Game Bitcoin Wallet

Every Bitcoin wallet in Bitquest is an HD Bitcoin wallet address. This actually means that you can check your balance by checking the wallet command or using the game HUD. If you want to deposit coin after you have joined the server, your transactions will first be processed and once it is complete you will be able to see thev amount that you have deposited reflected in your wallet. You can use that money to claim land, make a money transfer, or buy items at the market. In Bitquest, Bitcoin is actually measured in bits, which are 1/1,000,000th of a Bitcoin.

It is important to note that if you are planning to transfer bits of a certain amount from your wallet to a location that is not managed by Bitquest, then you will be charged a miner fee. This fee can vary depending on the amount that you are transferring. To prevent players from misusing this platform by transferring amounts that are too small, the minimum amount of bits that a player can actually transfer to an external wallet must be more than 2,000 bits.

On the other hand, the send command will transfer a specified amount from your wallet to a specified player wallet. Using this button to transfer Bitcoin to another player actually allows Bitquest to manage the transaction locally. Using this option will allow you to receive or send any amount of Bitcoin without being charged a miner fee.

BitQuest Final Words

In conclusion, Bitquest has created a platform that has made Bitcoin integration into minecraft simple, secure, and fun. Although it started out as an experiment, Bitquest has actually demonstrated that Bitcoin and Blockchain technology can be a stable and fun way to use real world currency to operate an in-game economy.
