How Events and Difficulty Change the Game

Hello everyone,

It’s been less than a week since the Blockchain Tycoon was released for Early Access. The first thing we’ve been working on is the first set of fixes that will be available soon.

Some notes and explanations regarding the feedback:
  • Main goal of the first Early Access version is to show how the game works and its core mechanics.

  • The game includes other miners in the simulated world. The difficulty you select at the beginning of a game determines how aggressive other miners will be while mining the cryptocurrency. Difficulty settings strongly effects the worldwide hash rate count. If you select the HARD mode, there will be multiple times more miners in the world compared to EASY difficulty. Less miners (or total hash rate in the world) means you can mine more coins.

  • There are market events that increases or decreases the price of a coin. Since this was the first version, price events start after the first year. The reasoning behind having no events in the first year was to allow player some time to build and grow its business before the coin price suddenly hits from $1500 to $20 (as an example). It might be changed in the future according to difficulty settings. These events are called ‘major’ events and they effect the price greatly. The game will also have minor events that will change the price weekly, monthly. When both of them combined, major events will serve as an indicator for state of the economy and minor events will be smaller scale events like someone tweeting about a coin or a country banning a coin.

  • There is an error in the price of the daily consumed power in the world that will be fixed.

  • Monthly electric bills might be a little different for the same amount of power compared between months. This is because electric bill is calculated using the amount of power used daily using an approximation.
