The question “what is Hash Rush?” is a complex one to answer. It’s a game, but it’s also a cryptocurrency miner. And it’s a company that produces a game by the same name. It’s also a game that uses a cryptocurrency of its own making for microtransactions, rewarding players who play the game by mining resources in-game. It’s also a community of sorts. I told you it was complex. Hash Rush doesn’t have a launch date set, but the in-game currency, Rush Coin (RC), has just had its opening week in its initial coin offering (ICO). Buying into Rush Coin at this point will net you some in-game currency early on, as well as bundled in-game items.
UPDATE: An earlier version of this article suggested that Hash Rush was a free-to-play game. Hash Rush has clarified that the game is not a free title. NAG was also informed that the Discord channel is actually open to everyone, it is the ability to vote on game updates and new features that is included in the ICO. Finally, there isn’t necessarily a pay-to-win mechanic in the game – players can earn more coin by investing more money and resources into their miners.
