RollerCoin is a virtual cryptocurrency mining simulator. After registering in the game, you can buy miners or get mining power to win games in the games tab. Then just choose a cryptocurrency and you can start mining.
For the current few months until the fall of 2022:
In the game, you first need to acquire mining power. This can be done in two ways.
The easier way is to buy miners using the in-game store. Personally, I would recommend waiting for a discount event, when miners will be cheaper, or use the Event pass. A cryptocurrency that can be converted into the RollerCoin RLT token, e.g., BTC, ETH, BNB, DOGE, USDT or BUSD, can serve as a deposit.
The actual purchase is charged in RLT. You must first purchase a rack and then a mining machine/miner. Electricity is free in the game, but you need to connect once every 5 days and press the recharge button, otherwise mining will stop. Miners can be improved using components, which can be obtained from the games and later on from the marketplace. Each miner adds bonus power as a percentage of the total mining power. Choosing the rarest miners can increase mining power even more.
The second way to gain mining power is to play minigames. There are a total of twelve 8-bit minigames. I would recommend playing the ones with the highest rewards (click on the game image to see this information). You also get bonus mining power from games, and parts to upgrade your miner, and there is a small chance to get a free miner. At the start you have a level 1 PC that will only hold mining power for one day, so it’s best to get to a level 4 PC as soon as possible, as this will hold mining power in the form of minigame rewards for 7 days.
Note: the PC level is reset to the basic model 24 hours after the last game you play.
You set the mining power in the “my power” section. You determine what percentage of your mining power to use, select a cryptocurrency, and mine. There is an increased reward for random cryptocurrencies each week, so you can alternate your mining. There are various calculators online allowing you to calculate which cryptocurrency is most profitable to mine at any given time.
Transferring cryptocurrency or exchanging for a RollerCoin token can be done right from the game wallet. The withdrawal itself takes place directly on the given blockchain, i.e., the Bitcoin goes straight to your Bitcoin wallet.
You can play in a browser, on tablets and on mobile phones. You only need an email address to register. Here is a registration link that will also give you 1,000 Sat in BTC to start: https://rollercoin.com/?r=kowohl2o
No investment is needed to start mining. You only need to play the minigames, although things are easier if you invest and mine more.
The basic game token is the RollerCoin RLT. Its supply is limited to 21,000,000 and it is only used for in-game transactions. RLT cannot be exchanged for other cryptocurrencies. The value of RLT is still USD 1.
All the uses of the RollerCoin token are shown below. However, the marketplace is not yet up and running, and in-game electricity is not yet charged.
In the game, you mine one or more cryptocurrencies from a choice of: Bitcoin, Ethereum, Binance BNB, Polygon, Dogecoin, and Solana.
You can also deposit Tether USDT and Binance BUSD. Cryptocurrencies can be transferred directly to your own wallet or exchanged for RollerCoin, which you can use to buy all the in-game items such as miners, racks, etc.
All these cryptocurrencies can be exchanged for RLT in-game.
There are no partners. The project is funded through crowdfunding.
The team is anonymous.
“The idea of virtual mining is interesting. The game has been running for 4 years and I have personally verified that it pays out. The big advantage is that you can mine without any initial investment. There are events in the game every now and then allowing you to get various things for free, even miners. The only problem here is the return on investment, the duration of which changes with every movement of cryptocurrencies and also with the increasing load on the RollerCoin virtual network, which reduces profits. I suggest buying miners only when discounted. I recommend not clicking on lootboxes with RLT, as this is pure gambling and you will usually lose.”
