The gaming hardware manufacturer Razer has released a new app that makes it possible to mine Ethereum during gamings in the future. However, there is a catch: The payment is not made directly with crypto currencies. Instead, users will be rewarded with an in-game currency.
The adaptation of crypto currencies and the associated integration into areas of everyday life progresses with each passing day. While the Bitcoin course is still struggling with the all too strong bear claws, the industry is not impressed by such events. Not only jobs in the blockchain sector are becoming more and more popular. The Bitcoin industry is also increasingly relying on institutional investors. Currently, crypto currencies are also slowly spreading into the gaming sector.
Cryptosoft offers new App for Ether Mining
As Razer announced on 12 December, the cryptosoft company is offering its customers a new app for mining on the Ethereum blockchain. The so-called cryptosoft Miner will use the GPU power of the devices to mine crypto currencies in the backend. The gamers will then be rewarded with Razer Silver, the platform’s internal gamer currency. Mining runs in the background, while users can continue playing regardless.
Razer wants to build bridge between gaming industry and crypto currencies
With this, the hardware manufacturer wants to build a bridge between the gaming industry and the world of crypto currencies. This is what the co-founder of Razer says:
„Razer’s software and services are an integral part of our gamer-centric ecosystem and complete our gaming lifestyle promise to our fans. Today’s major updates signal to the 50 million registered users of our software platform that we are committed to expanding their experience with the Razer family of products, from the simple mouse and keyboard to the most advanced next-generation apps“.
RazerSilver can then be used to make in-game purchases that vary from game to game. According to the press release, RazerSilver and the additional in-game currency RazerGold can be used in a total of 2,500 games.
