Founder’s Update – 3 August 2018

Greetings to everyone in the Hash Rush community!

We’re now past the half-way mark of the year and have just reached our biggest milestone to date: the launch of our live alpha! We hope you enjoy this update as well as the big announcements below.


Alpha went live on the 31st July

Our team has been laser-focused on this goal since pre-alpha ended, and we are really excited to see people playing our alpha. The response to our signups was truly humbling as we smashed through our goal in the first 48 hours, and doubled the number of players we’re granting access to a grand total of 2,000. Thanks to everyone who signed up and we can’t wait to hear what you think!


Please understand that the goal of the alpha is to test functionality; it’s not a representation of how all things will be in the final version of the game. It’s an alpha, so there will be bugs. Keep a close eye on your email inboxes for instructions on how to complete your registration!


Game Combat Mechanics

As well as being able to play the game, we know that there are many people out there that simply want to know how the game works! For that reason, we released a special dev blog that will dive into how combat works in Hash Rush, check it out on our brand new blog.


Beta announce/signup changes to the beta

Yes, we’re ready to officially announce that we will be running a closed beta testing phase which will include blockchain integration and cryptocurrency payouts! The plan is to go live on 28 September 2018 to a maximum of 10,000 players and test out the core elements of the game as well as our player reward pool. We’re constantly growing our mining farm to increase the payouts available, and are on track to offer up to $30,000 worth of ETH payouts in beta. We will have much more to share about the beta test in the coming months, but for now, if you want to participate, sign up!


New website launched

We’re also very happy to have relaunched our website with many new features, an updated aesthetic, hosting our blog here (so our Medium presence is going to get phased out), ZenDesk integration for our customer support and ticket integration, more details about the game and the various factions, and many other features. We hope you enjoy the new site!

    When is RC going to be added to a major crypto exchange? we the investors are looking for liquidity. We’ve been patient for over a year but would like clarity on this.

    Hi Victor Charles! RUSH coin will go live on exchanges on the 3rd December 2018. More detailed info is coming soon.

  5. Some Dude

    I’m a little confused about the early access part. I learned about the game at Gamescom which just ended and there I was told the game would be free to play. I’m also confused that I will have to create an ethereum wallet, that was not mentioned to me, too.
