Hey! I just wanna say thank you to Bloghound for renewing and increasing her genuine sponsorship to me. Thank you for not leaving me. Thank you for keeping me on your list and yep, thanksomunch for your support from my humble beginning until this very day.
Finding something new and promising?
The beachswap fiasco has tremendously pulled the string against the smartBCH community and investors. People became more cautious, doubtful and FUD-ied in the community. Constant arguments, defenses and accusations have envaded groups on telegram and other socials after the traumatic rug pull.
I was lucky for not being blinded by that new opportunity because for one, I didn't feel the needed spark (LOL) and something's telling me not to, because I didn't have pennies to spend anymore. Ah, not my lovely bch. I've invested on few tokens since I joined the hype on SmartBCH and I am not so happy with the result...of my Ill decisions and immaturity, I say.
Most of us are looking for something to milk us with profits. Even when you are sleeping, you are earning (especially farming and staking) or investing to a trusted and promising token that can kill 0's and make you rich the next day, week, month or year/s if you hodl them still.
Most of you may have found the gems and are supporting such promising project to help it/them boom more in the coming days, onboarding more and more people to either find the existence of smartBCH and those tokens listed in it. And in my case, although I haven't been so good at deciding has spotted something good to spend my time, spend my bch and earn rewards.
Meet Joystick.club 🕹️
Joystick.club is a bch powered virtual arcade. Yes you read that right! An arcade which you can easily access via bitcoin.com wallet app or browser. Joystick.club let players to play and earn token rewards which is now on SmartBCH!
This local arcade located between the world wide web and the public blockchain a verbatim from amalektricity- one of the developers of this project, lets players to compete and make it to the leaderboard where they are eligible to receive "tips" in bch form from users/players who are rooting for them to keep or aim for the top position.
How to play?
I feel more secure playing on bitcoin.com wallet app rather than other browser (But it's up to your liking whether play it on browser or on the app). Now, before deciding where to play the game, why not discuss how to play it? Shall we?
The bch powered virtual arcade is easy to play:
For bitcoin.com wallet user,
Open the app and click that globe search icon 🔍
You will then be directed here. There are plenty of services offered by btc.com wallet. Now, open joystick.club for you to be able to play.
You are then prompted to Launch the Service. After successful launching, you'll see three arcade game to choose from, namely; BLOCK BREAKER, NUMBER GO UP and COLIN CANDLESTICKS. It won't be a long wait before the former satoshi angel game will be available again with a new name "SMART BLASTER".
Pick the game of your choice. Once done, click Play now. This is the time where you'll have to pay in order for you to play.
Question: How much would it cost you?
As of writing, the payment per play is amounting to 0.00044bch or approximately 0.25 usd.
After clicking "Pay to play"button, you will be asked to choose which wallet you will use for receiving the reward. The second one will be for sending your payment per play.
A friendly note: To avoid confusion and difficulties in the future (especially on tracking your history for unrewarded plays), I suggest you use the same wallet on paying and receiving rewards. But if you want to use different wallets, that's up to you.
Slide to send and expect this message to confirm your successful payment.
As you can see, you have 5 lives to use. I know you've played this kind of game before and yeah, definitely when we were little.hahaha. So leveling up is an easy peasy task for you, right??
Now what? Enjoy the game! And compete with other players who are on the leaderboard. Being on the leaderboard, players are eligible to receive tips from random users. (I bet). Don't forget to enJOY!
If you would like to use a browser, follow the steps above for they are just similar. Tho, you will have to open your wallet, copy the address from the game, send your payment and wait for the transaction to be confirmed as successful. Most players are playing inside bitcoin.com wallet because we see it more convenient and easy. But as I've said, it's up to you.
It was formerly a hundred Joy token reward per play. But the devs have come up with the idea of upgrading the prize and slicing the reward in half due to the bridge launching and also to further support the project. From 0.10 usd with 100 joy rewards, it is now 0.25usd per play and you will receive 50 JOY token.
Update: An update was made last night. Adding up spice to this bch powered virtual arcade, your performance will decide how much or how little your rewards for play. No, you don't have to be the best player. One thing to avoid is "Suicidal play" where you purposely die. If you are a good player with good game performance, you should not worry for you will receive your respective rewards! Max rewards for good players is 50 JOY token and the lowest reward is 10 JOY token.
Keep in mind that the reward is in SLP. Yes, swapping slp to sep20 JOY is available 0n spicebot. If you happen to don't know how to do the swapping, follow and use the command /bridge swap (amount) (token name) your Sep20 address
And send it to Spicebot found on telegram.
As you can see, the bot provided an slp address. There, you will have to send your slp token (make sure to send the exact amount of token) once done, expect to receive your swapped token straight to your Metamask account (smartBCH).
Note: The minimum amount for swapping/bridging has been updated from 1000 JOY TOKEN to 2500.
Beta version; Play at your own risk
Since it's running in beta version, you know the drill. You can't expect for a smooth, easy and free from bugs to disturb your playing. In my few days of playing, I have to share these occurrences (for those who would want to try) so these won't be new to you and you wouldn't be surprised if such ever happens while you play.
The machine may eat your payment
Unrewarded plays/delayed rewards?
Reports are part of the day in our telegram group. Because the game is in beta (as I've always mention), it's expected to have errors as such. According to the update, there will be no longer a pop up message of reward confirmation. Instead, a 15-20 minutes waiting time (arrival of your rewards).
Lesser lives instead of 5
Players are eligible to enjoy 5 lives per pay. Although, there are instances that your lives are minimized to 2 instead of 5.
More and more people are onboarding on the game. So traffic is somehow expected to happen. And since it is in beta, there are continuous improvement to be made.
Being redirected to another game upon clicking "retry"
You may experience this bug and you will have to pay for another play. Worry not, your previous play may not pushed through but you will receive 10 Joy Token.
What I like about the arcade is its continuous improvement and the active engagement of the people responsible for this project. (I know what you are thinking. Maybe you are now more cautious to such developers?) Anyways, for the goodness of this project, the team is up for a continuous improvement, being considerate to beta testers' opinions and suggestions as well. Stepping away from the technicalities of this world of crypto, I just enjoy these games that do inflict a good arcade experience. Despite occasional bugs, I see it's improvement and that's a good point to start on counting.
What If you didn't receive Joy Rewards?
There is no longer a pop up message confirming that you have received your rewards. Instead, rewards will be sent out every 15-20 minutes after you finish your game. If past that time, the system catches every error logs and is expected to send out payment per hour. Moreover, if you didn't receive rewards, simply screen record your transaction history and the admin and joystick volunteers will assist you.
Joystick.club is still in beta so bugs are expected.
This is not a financial advice. I enjoy playing this bch powered arcade. But It is still your choice to spend your Bitcoincash. Make sure you are ready to face some errors since the project is still in beta. For now, I must say, I am happy with the project. (Personally speaking and I am not trying to persuade you. Xoxo) I'm not going to pursuade anyone. If you are interested, or curious about this project, make sure you do your own research and or even reach and contact the developers. (Just a cautious and safe move).
