Train2Game News Age Of Rust Crypto Treasure Hunt

Unlock the secrets of a post-apocalyptic universe in Age of Rust, a single-player RPG (roleplaying game) and crypto treasure hunt launching on Steam on March 19th.

US-based indie developer SpacePirate Games combine combat and stealth play mechanics with an NPC-driven story, AAA graphics and cerebral gameplay into an epic treasure hunt for a grand prize of 20 Bitcoin (BTC), worth over $650,000 at the time of writing.

This bounty hunt will be complemented by additional prizes of 4 BTC and non-fungible tokens (NFTs) backed with Enjin Coin (ENJ).

The Age of Rust will go on sale on March 19th on Steam for $14.99. Wishlist the game on Steam now to stay updated and start your adventure and treasure hunt as soon as the game is available!

“When we first started working on Age of Rust in 2014, we decided to do a treasure hunt to teach people about cryptocurrency and provide a fun onramp into this new world of blockchain,” said Chris LoVerme, CEO of SpacePirate Games.

“We set aside 24 BTC, which was worth about $20,000 at the time. We had no idea that this bounty would grow to be so valuable, as the roots of the idea were planted back when Bitcoin was virtually unknown. We believe Age of Rust is not only a fun RPG adventure that players will love, it will also serve as a great, easy introduction to the exciting world of blockchain gaming just as it’s really starting to take off.”

As one of the 22nd’s century’s most prolific weaponized cipher-hackers, you were sequenced and stored away for future use. Forgotten for centuries, you wake up in the year 4424 to the desolate and dilapidated remnants of humanity’s once great creation. In a post-apocalyptic wasteland with a healthy dose of cyberpunk aesthetics, you must fight, hide and hunt for special items to help you survive and progress through perplexing puzzles. But Age of Rust is more than just a danger-fraught journey with secrets to uncover and treasure troves to progress; it’s an immersive, cryptocurrency-enriched experience with an innovative new class of weapons and items with real-world value and blockchain-verified ownership, which can be used in various games across the metaverse.

Season 1 of Age of Rust contains approximately 40 hours of gameplay, with 3 Seasons planned in total. However, earning the BTC bounty by discovering easter eggs and solving puzzles could take much longer, possibly even years. The winner of the largest bounty will claim 20 BTC (approximately $650,000); the next-biggest bounty is 4 BTC, with over 35,000 smaller bounties to win and more than 250,000km2 of landscape to explore. As bounties are discovered, they will be removed from gameplay, with ownership of the item passed onto the player.

CashBet, a leading mobile-first iGaming platform provider and turnkey operator, today announced a major blockchain initiative for its patented iGaming platform and intent to launch an Initial Coin Offering (ICO) of its cryptocurrency designed for iGaming, CashBet Coin. 
Incorporating blockchain into the CashBet platform will better enable the company to offer the only complete, crypto-ready iGaming platform on the market. CashBet Coin’s ICO presale will begin on January 24, 2018 at 0:00 GMT +8 and will end on February 20 at 0:00 GMT +8. The public sale is expected to begin March 20 at 0:00 GMT +8 and will continue until April 27 at 0:00 GMT +8. The ICO will end early if the hard cap is reached prior to the end of the public sale. Key information on the token sale, including the whitepaper, token structure and use of proceeds, is available on the ICO website: https://coin.cashbet.com

Dr. Mike Reaves, CEO and founder of CashBet, said: “The introduction of CashBet Coin will enable operators to solve the biggest problems facing crypto casinos today: speed, trust, and cost. Integrating blockchain technology into the CashBet core iGaming stack will open new markets by democratizing access to world-class entertainment for a new group of players currently underserved by the centralized banking establishment. Additionally, the associated technology initiative will be far more scalable and cost-efficient on a per transaction basis than current blockchain-based casino software.”

CashBet Coin tokens will be issued within two weeks after the ICO completes. The introduction of CashBet Coin as an ERC20-compatible cryptocurrency token will roll-out in several phases that include inviting token holders to an exclusive VIP experience, introducing regulated cryptocurrency wagering, and providing facilities for customers and partners of CashBet to pay their fees via CashBet Coin. Later, CashBet will launch CryptoRGS, the first provably-fair iGaming content distribution network suitable for crypto casinos, and CryptoGo, an off-chain state channel-based technology designed to minimize cost and payout delay for players.

CashBet also announced advisory board appointments to support the ICO, including:

    Stuart Lewis-Smith, GM of GSN Games / Sony

    Lars Wahlström, GM, Jackpotjoy, Sweden

    Kevin Flood, Founder, Gameinlane, former CTO of PurePlay & GM of Harrah’s Online

    Tjaden Hess, Blockchain Software Engineer, 1protocol, ConsenSys

    Jay Berg, Founder of Protoblock, Inc., former core developer at Coinsetter

Reaves continued: “We anticipate several more patents to be issued for this technology to complement the two patents that were issued to CashBet in December. The heavy hitters we’ve added to our software engineering team and advisory board will help us fulfill our vision of offering the most feature-rich cryptocurrency-ready iGaming platform. The ease of use and liquidity of our token, CashBet Coin, will open new markets both in terms of players and operators. This new cryptocurrency will allow us and our partners to attract new players through access to a robust VIP program as well as consumer protection, minimal transaction fees, faster payouts, and hundreds of high quality games that do not exist on any other cryptocurrency-enabled iGaming platform.”

CashBet was founded in 2012 by gaming industry veterans and is the only mobile-first platform currently in the market for real-money, social, lottery, and skill-based gaming. The team has previous experience successfully building and selling online gaming platforms for CyberArts (Ultimate Gaming) and US Digital Gaming.
