Gaming is about to be revolutionized!
« on: February 02, 2014, 06:16:44 PM »
HUNTERCOIN

It's a crypto currency and a coin.

Guess what we'll see a lot more of in the future? Games that ARE their own crypto currency, not just "HAVE" a currency.

This is going to be BIG in gaming.

That *does* look interesting.  It reminds me of the real world mmo games that are out there.

I don't play many games, but this seems uber-cool. You can actually collect coins? Wow. I haven't figured out how to cash my player coins into my wallet though... Once I figure that out, I'll try to give away some coins for people here to get in and play.

I'm having the same problem I've had with DOGE... maybe I'm just too impatient.  It never syncs... and with DOGE, I gave up after I came back and there were double the blocks to sync that there were before I left.

Check with the original thread for an updated client if that happens. Sometimes restarting helps. It does take time to sync though, depending on the size of the blockchain. THis should be pretty fast though.

MithrilMan in the BTF is creating a new client for Huntercoin. It’s not ready quite yet, but I had the chance to test it along with 2 other people. The game client is coming along really well, and is extremely smooth.
