You will not be far from the truth if you believe that there is an ongoing tapping pandemic. From Notcoin to TapSwap, Yescoin to Hamster and in anticipation of the newest game, Blum, people continue to tap on their screens to earn dollars.

Blum is the latest Web3 game built on the messaging app Telegram. Just as we discussed other notable telegram-based web3 projects like Notcoin and TapSwap earlier, we will discuss all you need to know about Blum, and how you could make returns from it.

Let’s get to it.

What is the Blum coin?

It brands itself as a hybrid exchange that is introducing a Telegram mini-app. Blum claims to have over 20 million users already. And, its Telegram group has over 12 million subscribers. 

The team behind the project includes CEO Gleb Kostarev (Binance’s former VP), CMO Vladimir Smerkis (ex-director of Binance in CIS), and third co-founder and CTO, Vlad Maslyakov. The fourth co-founder and VP of Product Design, with the pseudonym @0xGenie, used to be a product design lead at TrustWallet and Binance.

According to information on the project’s website, it aims to redefine the crypto trading experience with a unique approach of combining centralized exchange (CExs) and decentralized exchange (DExs) features on a single platform. The project, the founders claim, will solve issues common with CExs and DExs and allow users to purchase any coin from any network.

As a strategy, Blum is integrating with Telegram, which boasts almost 1 billion users globally, as a mini-app. It is currently in its initial phase which involves allowing users to earn Points on the Telegram mini-app. 

What users are currently farming on the telegram mini-app appears not to be the main token of the platform. The points are expected to be utilized when the crypto trading app launches fully.

According to the project’s blog post, the points are what users can earn at the moment and they are supposed to be the “real deal” inside the Blum ecosystem.

How to earn points 

The primary point of interaction with the mini-app is called Blum Crypto Bot. It helps users kickstart their Blum points farming journey. 

To get started, sign up for an account with this Bot, start accumulating points by clicking the ‘farm’ button then check in every 8 hours to claim points. 

Another interesting way to earn points is the Play Drop Game. This is basically tapping some falling green balls. The catch is to tap as many as possible in a minute.

Additionally, users can earn more points by inviting referrals(10% from direct referrals + 2.5% from their referrals) and completing social or daily tasks.

When will Blum launch?

Although Blum hasn’t made any announcement regarding a launch date, the project will be judged by the worth of its airdropped tokens when it launches.

But, there are several propitious markers for this coin. Chief among these is the founders’ experience and prominence in the global crypto space.

Also note that in March, Binance Labs announced Blum as one of the 13 early-stage projects. Blum was selected from over 700 applicants for season 7 of the Most Valuable Builder (MVB) Accelerator Program. While being part of the MVB Accelerator Program doesn’t guarantee investment in the projects, being included on such lists indicates that major players see potential in the project.

It is safe to conclude that Blum may be on course to develop into a comprehensive hybrid exchange. The creators of the Telegram mini-app game claim that they are committed to providing effortless access to a wide variety of coins and tokens and offering derivatives trading soon.

On the flip side, the project owners did not mention anywhere in their introductory blog post that the points would be converted to tokens. There is also no mention of the reward system for people who have mined the points currently.

Nevertheless, there’s no harm in giving it a trial. It only makes sense to keep an eye on Blum’s entry into the crypto trading space with its Telegram mini-app.
