What is Hash Rush?
Hash Rush is the first ever large scale strategic online game capable of paying its players with CryptoCurrency. The game is powered by real life hash machines, and the better you do in the game, the more power is allotted to your in-game colony/mining rig. Before I confuse you, let’s jump into the basics.
When you first start the game, you are given the option of selecting a faction. There are three of them in the Hermeian solar system and each of them belong to a different sector in space. The factions essentially function as races in the game’s universe and are organized by color and physical attributes. The blue Ernacs are a mysterious glowing species of the Cryptonian Sector, The Space Pirates are red bandits originating from the Rustarian Sector and dreaming of the day when they’ll finally make a name for themselves. Last but not least, we have the Highborn Elves. The elves are pink and purple, wise, and members of the Eldarian Sector. In the game, magic crystals are mined and can later be transformed into CryptoCurrency; the story goes that the Highborn are addicted to a special liquid that can only be created from the magic crystals. Due to the rarity of the crystals, the lesser of the elves are forced to mine them like slaves. Extremely small portions of the addictive liquid is provided to them to prevent fatigue and aging, while the higher members of the Eldarian society take the liquid daily to remain young for eternity. The developers have stated that each faction has a different characters, story lines, and look.
Once you’ve selected your sector, you can begin mining. Careful, though! Enemies are always looking to break you down and keep you from mining up their precious materials. If you do not stay alert enough, you just might find your things destroyed.
Do I have to download the game? Will it be available on gaming consoles?
The game will be played through the browser, meaning the game will not be available for purchase specifically for the console. If you have a web browser on your gaming console, such as Microsoft Edge on the Xbox One, this has a possibility of working. It all depends on the plugins required for the game to operate. The developers posted to their blog recently, stating that they will be releasing their very own CryptoCurrency with the game which can be exchanged for other currencies on the internet, though players will have an option between a few different currencies that they would like to trade their in-game coins with. Here are the ways to earn money in Hash Rush:
- Mining the in-game crystal objects known as Crypto Crystals
- Through the exchange of items with other players
- Through the exchange of currency with other players
- Completing missions
Expanding the colony in your sector, while the most important, isn’t the only mission in the game. You can win prizes by completing challenges and special quests, or by taking part in the multiplayer storyline which is separate from the single player entirely and pits the factions against each other.
If you purchase the in game currency (which doubles as a real world Crypto Currency) (pre-)ICO, you receive special bonuses and opportunities such as:
- Receiving a 25% conversion bonus for Crypto Coins
- Choose your faction while waiting for the game to launch
- Beta access as soon as it is available
- In game trading cards and special badges for your character.
