Gaming payment processor Zebedee and Viker, a mobile games studio, have launched games that can reward players with bitcoins. The games – Bitcoin Chess and Bitcoin Scratch – are part of Viker’s strategy to use Zebedee’s payment technology to bring a new play-to-earn (P2E) twist to classic games familiar to all.
Available to download for both iOS and Android, Bitcoin Scratch and Bitcoin Chess are the latest addition to the company’s gaming bouquet, which consists of classic games like Sudoku and Solitaire. Bitcoin Chess can be downloaded from the Playstore for Android and the App Store for iOS. As of Saturday, the app had over a trillion downloads.

So far, the two companies – Zebedee and Viker – have produced 10 games in the P2E model powered by Bitcoin.

What is Bitcoin Chess?

Bitcoin Chess, a project by Zebedee and Viker, a mobile games studio, allows participants to earn Bitcoins (BTC) in small amounts while playing the traditional game of chess. According to reports, players will be rewarded in satoshis (sats) – the smallest unit of BTC, equal to 0.00000001 bitcoin. Users can redeem Sats through Zebedee’s payment interface.

“These aren’t huge amounts of money as players earn pennies per session, making the concept sustainable,” Zebedee said in a press release. At Bitcoin Scratch, players receive packs of scratch cards. If the cards contain matching symbols, players can claim rewards in the form of Satoshis. In each game, a player can earn up to 250 satoshis.
