Bitcoin Miner Hits 2 Million Downloads with ZBD Rewards

In a significant milestone, UK game developer Fumb Games is commemorating the second anniversary of Bitcoin Miner's collaboration with the Bitcoin gaming payment network ZBD. Since the inception of this partnership in March 2022, Bitcoin Miner, a mobile-based idle mining game, has witnessed exponential growth, surpassing 40,000 daily active users (DAUs) and amassing an impressive player base of over 2 million.

Paul West, founder of Fumb Games, stated: "Bitcoin Miner has proven that US players love games that are fun, snackable, and rewarding. The game is not only sustainable but has soared to new heights since the partnership with ZBD. It's no surprise that I'm very excited for the future of bitcoin and player-friendly rewarded games."

The integration of ZBD's plug-and-play API has been instrumental in this success story. Developers can seamlessly incorporate instant rewards, known as Sats, into their applications, providing players with fractional Bitcoin as they engage with the game. This innovative approach to incentivizing gameplay has undoubtedly contributed to Bitcoin Miner's surge in popularity.

However, Bitcoin rewards are not the sole driver behind the game's success. Bitcoin Miner has also thrived due to its implementation of community-based features, including weekly live events, fostering a vibrant and engaged player community. Moreover, by extending its reach to the vast user base of the ZBD app, which boasts over 1 million gamers, Bitcoin Miner has expanded its audience significantly.

Looking ahead, Fumb Games announced in November 2023 its plans to further capitalize on this momentum by integrating ZBD's rewards system into another mobile-based title, SpaceY, an idle tycoon RPG. This strategic collaboration underscores the continued partnership between Fumb Games and ZBD, leveraging the proven success of Bitcoin Miner to drive innovation in the gaming industry.

82% Increase in ARP DAU

Traditionally, non-disruptive in-game ads have been a primary source of revenue for game developers. However, this partnership adds a unique layer to the equation by sharing a portion of this revenue with players. ZEBEDEE's cutting-edge technology, which facilitates Lightning Network transactions, has already demonstrated remarkable results. For example, web3 games like Ludo Zenith observed a remarkable 82% increase in ARP DAU, while Bitcoin Miner, experienced a tenfold surge in its day 30 user retention rate.

This novel approach has attracted the attention of notable industry giants. Even Niantic, known for its augmented reality innovations, has started experimenting with web3 games, blockchain and cryptocurrencies.

The partnership between AdInMo and ZEBEDEE exemplifies the evolving synergy between gaming and the emerging web3 ecosystem. Players can now enjoy non-disruptive ads while reaping Bitcoin rewards, adding a novel layer to their gaming experience. This collaboration is poised to define the future of player engagement and in-game advertising, enabling the gaming community to share in the revenue generated.
