Ever since PubG and Fortnite took off, there have been countless other battle royale games released, but LIGHTNITE is the first to put a Bitcoin twist on it. Put simply, it’s an online multiplayer battle royale game where every specific digital interaction between players triggers a monetary reward or penalty. Players earn Bitcoin by simply shooting their opponents and lose the cryptocurrency when they get shot. Read more for a teaser video and additional information.
Each player has an in-game Bitcoin wallet that updates in real-time, and it can be topped up by shooting opponents as well as picking up in-game items. This accrued currency can then be used to purchase items, similar to micro-transactions, or the player can exit the game at any time and deposit their winnings into a regular cryptocurrency wallet. There are currently 600 early access copies of the game available for $20, with a public beta planned for Q1-Q2 2020. Check it out here.
