    Hi guys, I just discovered a new game where you use cryptocurrency, such as Bitcoins (BTC) and Etherium (ETH) to purchase these cute animal sprites and use them to buy, sell, trade, play mini-games, put up for auction, etc.
    Is it worth it, though? Is it good/bad? Really curious and I find the whole concept unique.

    Oh, and the game is Bitpet for those wondering. Here is the link if it's okay to post. Bitpet

    May I ask what is your opinion on cryptocurrency on games, in general?
    I saw some games where you invest cryptocurrencies in like World of Ether and Bitpet. I never thought those type of games would exist, I think it's smart from the game developers to take advantage of the cryptocurrency hype.
    Do gamers who invest in Cryptocurrencies really take those kind of games into consideration?

    Update: Bitpet seems like a good game to invest BTC and ETH in. Anyone else tried it?

    Doesn't sound too bad, but I feel like cryptocurrency is overkill, especially if that's actually the primary currency of the game. And I generally prefer games that use their own virtual currency.

    I think blockchain technology is one of those things that's overhyped (specifically for currency), rather than being looked at for new potential uses (like creating some sort of digital fingerprint for identity security or protecting data). I'm sure there are better applications to blockchain.
