Just How Much Money Have People Made with Huntercoin?
First of all, what is Huntercoin?
Huntercoin was the world’s first blockchain and decentralised strategy MMO game (if we ignore Satoshi Dice and some other gambling games that used Bitcoin, but didn’t run on the blockchain itself).
At the time it was released in February 2014, every other altcoin was a clone of Bitcoin with only small parameter changes. Apart from Namecoin, Huntercoin was the only other innovative project at the time.
Huntercoin received no funding and was developed as an experiment to test how well a blockchain network could handle 10s of thousands of players moving around a map in a decentralised blockchain world. The game mechanics were not thought through and support was only destined for 1 year.
In Huntercoin the main objective is to collect coins on a map and kill other players. The coins collected and banked in the game appear in your wallet just like bitcoin. The entire history of the game world and where those coins came from are stored forever in a provably fair, decentralised game universe.
So, just how much have people made?
