On August 18 of 2008, the domain named bitcoin.org was registered. In November of that year, a paper authored by Satoshi Nakamoto titled Bitcoin: A Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash System was posted to a cryptography mailing list. Nakamoto implemented the bitcoin software as open source code and released it in January 2009.
Huntercoin was launched five years later. The very first Blockchain Game. After the success of their launch, many followed and the Blockchain Game movement was launched. So what is Huntercoin? Huntercoin is an Open Source Crypto Currency similar to Bitcoin. The main difference is that approximately 80% of the coins are obtainable by collecting coins in a virtual universe which resides inside the blockchain. A Simple game is played to collect coins on a map of which has an element of Player versus Player combat to fight over resources.
Huntercoin, decentralized and innovative, was released in February 2014 as a live experimental test to see how blockchain technology could handle full on game worlds. Huntercoin proved the concept and is still in development today. After Huntercoin many others followed, Cryptokitties being one of the most well-known.
