Bitcoin to the Moon – in a Video Game
Rollercoaster video games are not unpopular. Rollercoaster Tycoon, for example, was a simulation about building and managing an amusement park, allowing players to construct and customize their own unique roller coasters and other thrill rides. However, it owed most of its popularity to trigger-happy people who build extreme rollercoasters that kill visitors – kind of like finding the weirdest way to kill a character in the Sims video game.
For crypto enthusiasts, the bearish market since the beginning of 2018 may have been enough to drown their hopes and visions (hopefully not!). But if the prices have not been enough to bring excitement into your life, there’s a video game for that too. Here you ride the price charts of your crypto of choice.
A 2D racing game for mobile devices Crypto Rider has tracks for many of your favourite cryptocurrencies, from Ethereum to Dogecoin, and a fan-favorite seems to be Sh*tcoin, which shows the prompt downfall of all those get-rich-quick scam coins on the market with startling efficiency.
The controls are also interesting: the only thing you can really do is touch the screen to accelerate. In all honesty, that sounds dangerous with the sort of peaks and dips some of the coins had. The similarity to Rollercoaster Tycoon is perhaps in that those ups and downs could kill people if they could actually ride these tracks.
Good thing it’s just a game. All the thrill and no danger! Except for the danger of water damage on your phone, because your tears drop on the screen when you start going down from the USD 20,000 from last year’s Bitcoin.
