If somebody said to you - ‘here, you can set up a full scale cryptocurrency mining project for $9.99’ you’d probably rip their hand off right?Well now, you can, sort of.Blockchain Tycoon is a new simulator game designed and produced by Wamill. Think The Sims or Rollercoaster Tycoon for blockchain enthusiasts. The game is set to launch via Steam Early Access on the 9th of August 2018 and will be available for a fee of $9.99. This of course is expected to rise as the game grows, but for now, you’ve got yourself a bargain. Access to an entire cryptocurrency mining career, in a simulated world at least. According to Wamil:“Blockchain Tycoon is the cryptocurrency simulation/tycoon game where you build your own crypto mining warehouses around the world. Start small, grow your business, HODL, and sell high”You can access the game via Steam Early Access from August, here. Here’s what Blockchain Tycoon has to offer:ExpansionBuild multiple warehouses around the world.Expand warehouses by buying more rooms.Research TreeHire experts to research new features.Upgrade your hardware.Realistic Mining SimulationHash rate and earned coin calculations are similar to real world.Other miners in the simulated world are also mining coins.

As the crypto community finally gone mad?Okay, this obviously isn’t a serious project for serious cryptocurrency investors, however we could look at this from an education perspective. Blockchain Tycoon allows new users an opportunity to explore the world of the blockchain, educating themselves about everything from the basics of mining, to its environmental impact and market behaviours and patterns. Whilst its a bit novel and probably won’t become the world's most popular simulator (yes, Goat Simulator I’m looking at you) this is an exciting way for curious individuals to explore the world of cryptocurrency mining. You never know, going forward this might even inspire a new wave of cryptocurrency mining tycoons?
