Bitcoin is earning more space in the gaming industry with new applications. Bitcoin is used as an in-game currency by several gaming startups. One of them is Donnerlab. Donnerlab is an online gaming platform that builds lightning games and applications and allows the gamers to hunt for the Bitcoins and earn Satoshi cubes as rewards.
Donnerlab was founded in 2018 by a young 25 years old technocrat Konstantin Nick after the Lightning Hackday in Munich, Germany. It aims to propagate the top cryptocurrency Bitcoin to the rest of the world.

The tweet reveals that Donnerlab has launched a Bitcoin Bounty Hunt game, which is a multiplayer first-person shooter (FPS) game on the lightning network. The lightning networks enable fast and secured micropayment transactions between the two nodes or gamers.
The FPS game features an inbuilt neutrino wallet where the earned coins can be stored in a non-custodial mode. It holds an extra feature to shoot other players to win more bounties. This area is also utilized for the Hodl-auctions.
Bitcoin Publicity via online games
Satoshi’s games, a Bitcoin enabled games startup, stated: “In simple phrases, players earn Bitcoins by capturing other gamers and lose Bitcoin once they get shot.”
The game reportedly updates itself in real-time when the players play their moves. The main reward is earning the Satoshis by shooting other players. When one player attacks the other, he gets Satoshis worth of BTC value and can withdraw the balance money instantly and securely via the lightning powered network. Donnerlab hasn’t yet clarified how much Satoshi can be earned in a single game.
The lightning network is already being used by other gaming startups such as Lightnight. The gamers can earn Satoshis by finishing missions and can also purchase weapons and tools for the missions.
What is Satoshi?
Satoshi is the smallest unit to measure the value of Bitcoin. A single Bitcoin is equivalent to 100 million Satoshis.
1 Satoshi = @0.000000000001 BTC
Network Blinking will drive Bitcoin at $250,000
Cryptocurrency capitalist Tim Draper has predicted that the advanced technology in the Lightning Network will propel the price of Bitcoin. Based on Bitcoin projection for 2022–2023, it will reach a new high of $250,000 partially due to the ‘Bitcoin Payment processors,’ which will stream new options.
Tim Draper said: “It’s because of Lightning Community and OpenNode and maybe others that are allowing us to spend Bitcoin very freely and quickly, so that it’s not just a store of value, but it can be used for micropayments; it can be used for retail, it can be used all over.”
