With strict capital controls in place by most countries to control the flow of money and charge high taxes, cryptocurrency gained usage in circumventing capital controls and taxes, leading to an increase in demand. Cryptocurrency has been able to present an easy to use digital alternative to fiat currencies. Offering frictionless transactions and inflation control, investors have been prudent enough to add these currencies in their diversified portfolios as an asset, as the size of the market does not represent a systemic risk. Cryptocurrency employs the use of cryptography that assures high-security processes and verifies transactions personal to each user. Hence, counterfeiting and anonymous transactions are impossible to achieve.
While this revolution is gaining wide acceptance, CryptoTycoon, a massive multiplayer online tycoon with role playing and economics and strategy has arrived. It's the ultimate blockchain and crypto simulation and a very diverse and challenging game.
"The collision of blockchain technology and gaming holds great promise for the growth of both industries. Innovations in the budding field of blockchain gaming have pushed the limits of non-fungible assets and are poised to keep supplying novel developments in other areas like scalability.
Gamers were some of the early adopters of cryptocurrencies as they were already familiar with many in-game virtual currency models and saw the benefits of integrating cryptocurrency networks into the domain. The eSports industry is booming, and it is only a matter of time before its rise is meaningfully coupled with cryptocurrency payment systems and decentralized models.
While the fusion of gaming and blockchain shows some great potential, there are still many hurdles facing its development that need to be overcome for it to reach mainstream adoption.
Blockchains provide a useful tool for gamers for various reasons including decentralized asset exchanges, verifiable scarcity of virtual objects and collectibles, fast and secure payment networks, and an ability for developers to properly monetize their creations. On the other hand, the search for solutions to providing sustainable and fun blockchain-based games has led to some exciting innovations in blockchain scalability and asset creation."
With that being said, CryptoTycoon (the game engine and logic) operates the way blockchain does. The same principles, the same transparency. It's blockchain visualized in form of game states (the entire game "history" is available at any point via a public link) and like-able game content. The content that is no longer ones and zeroes, but something you can play with and something you can sell, something that has value, something you see with your own eyes.

Now that I have your attention, let’s get right to it.
What exactly is CryptoTycoon?
As depicted earlier and as indictaed on the official whitepaper of CryptoTycoon, CryptoTycoon is a massive multiplayer online tycoon with role playing and economics and strategy. It's the ultimate blockchain and crypto simulation and a very diverse and challenging game.
Founded in February 2018, Chasing Dreams Games (or simply, Chasing Dreams) stands for games you just can’t wait to experience. We’re packed with an amazing team and the drive to produce different games.
Founded by Pavel Pekanov, former early employee Creative Director at one of Asia’s most prominent cryptocurrency companies. Pavel has a 14 years track record in Creative field, past experience as a startups Co-Founder.
As of December 2018, CHASING DREAMS is a 5 people strong in-house team, with 3 off-location contractors.
CryptoTycoon wants to deliver an exceptional game and exceptional experience, design great graphics, code blazing fast network protocols and don't trade the game quality in the process. That needs funding CryptoTycoon just don't have.
This is a high level list of the CryptoTycoon goals:
Full 3D with better graphics
Massive Multiplayer Online (think EvE Online)
Enhanced RTS gameplay (think StarCraft 2)
Blueprints and Inventions
Obstacles Facing Blockchain Gaming
The primary obstacle facing the intersection of blockchain and gaming is very clear, scalability. The same problem that is facing the broader industry is inhibiting the sustainability and actual usefulness of current blockchain-based games.
The problem of scalability will ultimately determine which platforms see the majority of interactive games built on them and which become a more non-fungible asset focused model. Regardless, scalability limitations are stifling the sustainability of the vast majority of blockchain games today.
Character role playing
Four tycoons each with their own set of skills to learn.
Easy to learn

Sell coins, rigs, comps and blueprints.
About Blockchain simulation
CryptoTycoon game network simulates the way blockchain works. It’s a precise simulation, and it results in a decentralized realtime gaming experience.
The simulation runs on game Nodes (players themselves, client-side) in a manner very similar to how torrents work. Each Node stores the game history and exchanges data (game states) with nearby Nodes. The Game Master Node sets the rules and broadcasts to nearby Nodes, just like a normal server. Any Node can take over the Game Master role.
CryptoTycoon community-driven Marketplace is built on blockchain. It involves trading in-game content to cryptocurrencies and to in-game currency. Unlike many others “built on blockchain” games, CryptoTycoon does not rely on blockchain network speed.
