Today I'm going to continue my series on blockchain games and crypto-based gaming by telling you about a game some of you may already know which is Tron Hive.
TRON is crypto mostly made for games, as you probably know by now, so it's kind of a no-brainer that I know about it and stash a few.
Having said that, I think every crypto has its function, and more than gaming, I use TRX as a High Investment Crypto token.
What this means is, I take my profits from some of my other crypto endeavors, like Steem, I convert them to TRX and then I used those TRX to get more profit by investing them into a game.
One of these games is the Bee Hive Game.
How Does It Work?
Well, basically you one thing that produces money - Bees.
Then, you have two different resources, both produced by Bees, which are Wax and Honey.
Honey is the most important resource, as it is what you can withdraw to your TRON wallet, but WAX is vital as well because it is what you use to buy more Bees and machine upgrades.
The machine is what processes the material produced by your bees.
For instance, my machine is a 60/40 machine because I still didn't upgrade it, it produces 60% in Wax and 40% in honey.
If I upgrade it, it will begin producing more honey and less wax, therefore granting me less staked tokens and more liquidity.
You can think of Wax as staked tokens, and honey as liquid tokens.
How Much Is Each Resource Worth?
Well, as I stated before, you have wax and honey.
Both resources require 50 units to be worth 1 TRX.
The difference is, you get 50 wax for each 1 TRON deposit, and you get 1 TRON for each honey withdrawn.
This means you'll use wax to produce and upgrade, and you'll have more wax than honey, so you better use wax and just withdraw honey, even though you can buy stuff with honey as well.
The profits from the game are quite nice though, even though I just started I'm liking it.
Heck, I'm even a bit suspicious for it being so good, but after tons of research I found nothing suspicious... if you guys know anything I don't let me know, but so far so good and I already got more tokens out than I spent so that gave me confidence to write about it.
More Than One Type of Bee
As you can see, there are multiple types of Bees.
I just went for the regular bees, buying three regular bees for 100% profit per month.
This is crazy, and I repayed my investment extremely quickly... but you have to bear in mind that 50% of that profit will be "staked tokens" in form of wax, and only the other half will be honey.
Another great thing in this game is the AirDrop bee. You start with a pool full of them which pays you 300 wax a day if you pop in to claim at the right hours.
This gives you a bit extra wax to invest in new bees, and that's why you can make money in this game even with zero investment if you're patient enough.
Come to think about it, this makes it a free to play game.
However, you must have a TRX wallet and about 3-5 tokens for the game to start without problems, so you still need to ensure you have a healthy enough wallet.
TRX is pretty cheap though, so that's a bunch of cents only.
Gamification: What We All Love in Crypto Games
Crypto games are that super attractive mix between investment and gaming, which is only possible through gamification of traditional finance concepts.
As such, it's no surprise that Bee Hive has tons of these elements, and one of these examples are its medals.
Then you have new types of machines according to the upgrades you make to your base machine which, again, I didn't try, but I am just in it for the increase in profits... not thinking about it in the long run.
The past games I've spoken about I can assure you are very well thought and economically viable. However, I still didn't discover how this game can pay so much, and I fear it can end one day or another if it is one of those Ponzi schemes, so don't invest money you can't afford to lose.
On the other hand, I already took more from it than I placed in, and it still produces money for me every hour, so I had to share it with you.
If you know this game or the devs, if you know what makes it viable, or if you know something that may point it out to be a scam, let me know.
I can't find a thing about it, and the dev is super-nice, so I can't really say anything bad about it... but it seems too good to be true, and I've learned that in these cases it probably is.
