Donnerlab is the name of the online gaming platform which recently unveiled a new feature that allows gamers to collect rewards in Bitcoin (BTC). As the crypto news show, the gaming platform is known for building lighting games and applications – and now lets its gamers hunt for BTC by picking the so-called “Satoshi cubes.”
As a tweet posted on November 19 shows, the online gaming platform Donnerlab announced the launch of their latest project named “Bitcoin Bounty Hunt” which is a fully lighting native multiplayer first person shooter (FPS) game. The Lighting network will be the official payment protocol which allows for fast micro payments between the two nodes – in this case, the gamers.
The online gaming platform Donnerlabs was founded by the twenty-five year old Konstantin Nick following the 2018 Lighting Hackday in Munich, Germany. The event’s main aim was to introduce the world’s largest cryptocurrency to more people (and gamers).
Meanwhile, the FPS game features an integrated neutrino wallet too, where gamers can store coins in a non-custodial fashion. There is ad space for HODL-auctions too, as well as the ability to kill off other players and collect bounties.
In October this year, the Bitcoin-enabled games startup Satoshi Games announced a similar game to the legendary Fortnite, coming with built-in Lighting Network micro transactions. The game was called Lightnite and the interactions between players trigger a monetary reward or penalty for the user.
“In simple words, players earn Bitcoin by shooting other players and lose Bitcoin when they get shot,” Satoshis Games said at the time.
Now that Satoshis Games is not the online gaming platform which uses BTC as an incentive, we can see that more and more companies are shifting their gaming innovations and making it to the latest Bitcoin news updates.
On the other hand, Lighting Network is continuing the innovation on its own. Besides the use in the online gaming platform world, the technology is seen as a key to propelling the Bitcoin price higher. This is what the venture capitalist Tim Draper said recently.
“It’s because of Lightning Network and OpenNode and maybe others that are allowing us to spend Bitcoin very freely and quickly, so that it’s not just a store of value but it can be used for micropayments; it can be used for retail, it can be used all over,” Draper noted.
