Introducing 'MineCoin': a Minecraft-based Bitcoin 'mining' competition. For our beta test, we're giving away >80 mBTC.
Hi folks, I'd like to introduce a project that we've been working on called MineCoin. MineCoin is a Minecraft-based tournament game for mining gold ore blocks that are redeemable for Bitcoins (BitOre blocks). These tournaments are pay-to-play (in BTC) with the pooled entry fees making up the total number and value of BitOre in the game. For our open Beta test, we're giving away >80 mBTC worth of BitOre. We only have 25 available player slots that are filled on a first come, first served basis. If you don't get in the top 25, we'll put you in the queue in case someone drops out. The Beta test is scheduled for 9 pm (GMT+10) on the 21st of June (20 hours away at the time of this posting). We are really after your feedback and suggestions, so feel free to drop them in the comments below. Thanks!
