Celebrate Bitcoin Games Day with us

Bitcoin rewards have come a long way in recent years (in no small part thanks to ZEBEDEE, if we can say so ourselves). They’re a lot of fun to earn, super-easy to collect from games, and when it comes to spending, you now have thousands upon thousands of options. We think that’s pretty awesome, so, together with some friends, we decided to throw a party of epic proportions, to celebrate a new age of rewarded gaming with the first-ever Bitcoin Games Day!

But before we get into everything you need to know about Bitcoin Games Day, let’s roll back the time. Over 10 years ago, Bitcoin was first given out as a prize in a StarCraft tournament. Back then, the now eye-watering 25 Bitcoin was given to the fourth place finisher, almost as an afterthought, with the podium receiving “good old” regular USD.

A lot has changed since – three things in particular. First, 25 Bitcoin is no longer a trivial amount, but that goes without saying. Second, and more importantly, what used to be a reward that was difficult to collect and even more difficult to spend is now easily accessible everywhere and spendable at the tap of a button. And last, but definitely not least, earning Bitcoin rewards in gaming has not only become commonplace, it’s becoming the norm.

But enough of history, let’s get to what you can do on Bitcoin Games Day and how you can earn all these huge rewards!

Over a decade ago, Bitcoin rewards were already a thing.

Join tournaments in Hellfire Arena

We’ve got a lot of friends helping us pull off this epic day-long event. One of them is Guilds, who’re launching Hellfire Arena, their classic shooter made modern, and pumping it up with millions of sats. In this multiplayer PvP mobile game, you’ll be able to join multiple tournaments with different game modes and on different maps, for a small entry fee (100 sats) and you use your own skills to outmatch the competition and score sweet prizes.

If you don’t have enough sats to join, don’t worry! If you register before or during Bitcoin Games Day, you’ll get 1,000 sats for free, and you’ll be able to use that to join tournaments and win even more sats. There will be multiple tournaments throughout the day, each with a prize pool of 200,000 sats.

Hellfire Arena tips and tricks

To help you maximize your chances of winning, we’ve assembled a couple of tips and tricks in Hellfire Arena. Use this knowledge to beat your opponents and claim the rewards yourself!

  1. When considering which enemy on the screen to shoot a fire/water/plant/death ball at, the various elements have a “rock paper scissors” relationship. Use this knowledge to do the maximum possible damage to your enemies! 🔥💧🍃💀
  2. When you play a large number of missions in one day, you’ll stop earning ally points. Instead, pick an “already been used” ally over an inactive ally to do damage to enemies and keep your progress moving forward!
  3. 💡 Each world has a different elemental tendency depending on which color it is. For example, an area of Eberdawn that’s blue (the Arch Moor Cliffs) will have a water tendency, so plan accordingly for maximum effectiveness.

$750 Fortnite tournament on Dubbz

Playing games competitively has always been one of our passions at ZEBEDEE. The thrill of action and the skills needed to have an edge over your competitors can really send blood rushing through our veins. And when there are huge rewards on the line, the stakes simply get so much higher. That’s why we’ve connected with Dubbz, to host a high-stakes FPS tournament in one of the most popular FPS titles of all time – Fortnite.

In this elite competition, the best players will be able to flex their muscles and compete for Bitcoin prizes worth $750 in total. But you have to be quick, since sign-ups are limited to 32. If you think you’ve got what it takes, sign up now and take home hundreds of USD worth of Bitcoin.

Keep in mind, the tournament will be hosted on US servers and will only be available to players from the North America region. There are also a couple more rules, such as that Anonymous mode isn’t allowed or that everyone has to stream the match on Twitch, so the VOD is available. The whole list of rules can be found under the Rules tab on the tournament description page.
