What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We want to listen to the community to include more features and make improvements on gameplay to create a better game than it is originally designed.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We expect the game to be in Early Access for at least six months.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

  • Improvements on game balance
  • Improved usability
  • Experimental game modes
  • Multiple coins
  • GUI improvements
  • Nicer graphics
  • More balanced research tree

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“It is fully playable and multiple warehouses can be built. There are several GPU and ASIC hardware units that can be used to mine coins. Research tree, warehouse expansion, taking loans, and coin exchange also works.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“Price will increase as more content is added to the game.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We are ready to listen the community feedback on all features of the game. We plan to include features requested by the community in future updates. Regular updates and improvements will be announced on the Steam Community pages. We always want to hear your opinion.”

What is Cryptocurrency Mining?

https://youtu.be/Jkek-ieg7ys
Since we are getting close to the launch date, we had to talk about the mining process. While talking about the Blockchain, it is mentioned that each block needs to be validated in order to be added to the Blockchain. Validation methods differ from platform to platform. Common validation methods are Proof-of-Work (PoW), Proof-of-Stake (PoS), and Consensus. Bitcoin uses Proof-of-Work to validate and add blocks to its Blockchain. In our game Blockchain Tycoon, we are assuming the coins you earned in the game are rewards of PoW and validation of other transactions.

In real life, earning coins is not as easy as it sounds. For example, in Bitcoin network, in order to earn Bitcoin rewards, you need to verify the transaction and you need to be the first miner to calculate the same hash value in the block. A hash value is calculated by solving a complex mathematical problem. This is the part that GPU and ASIC come in.

Why are we using GPU and ASIC?

In order to calculate the result of the problem that will give us the same value as in block, we need some processing power like a CPU or GPU. But, in order to be the first miner to calculate the value, we need much more processing power than the other miners. A CPU is slower compared to GPUs. At the early days of the Bitcoin, CPUs can be used to calculate the hash value, but as the number of miners increase, total processing power in the network also increased. So, the coins can only be mined with GPU and ASICs. An ASIC means Application-Specific Integrated Circuit which is designed to solve a specific problem. Different from CPU and GPUs, they are not efficient to use for general purpose problems. Instead, they can be designed to solve the exact problem that needs to be solved for earning coins. Processing power of the ASICs are much more greater than the CPU and GPUs.

Finance of Blockchain, Coins, and ICOs

Discussion topic of this week is Coins and ICOs.

A coin is a unit of a cryptocurrency and a medium of exchange. Coins are distributed among the network according to its own set of rules. For example, in Bitcoin network, a node is rewarded coins when it calculated the hash value that is used to validate the new block of the blockchain. This system is called Proof-of-Work. Bitcoin, Litecoin, Dogecoin, Ethereum, and Ripple are all coins. Each cryptocurrency has their own blockchain.

A token is a unit of value that can describe a cryptocurrency or a digital asset that is built on another platform. Some platforms create their own token using an existing cryptocurrency platform. Many applications use Ethereum Platform to create their own token and rely on the Ethereum Blockchain.

Why trade coins?
Because, similar to physical or digital assets, it has value. They can be bought, sold, or traded. Although the market prices of popular coins like Bitcoin and Ethereum have ups and downs, price is determined by basic supply and demand.

What is an ICO?
ICO means Initial Coin Offering. At the beginning of a new cryptocurrency project, organizations need to raise money to finance the project. So, limited amount of coins are reserved for initial coin sale that will help to crowdfund the project and allow further development.
