What is Hamster Kombat?

Launched on March 26, Hamster Kombat is a Telegram-based tap-to-earn game that offers players the opportunity to mine coins by tapping their screens and doing tasks. The project claims to have over 100 million players. 

Hamster Kombat’s core concept is similar to Notcoin and TapSwap, albeit with more complex game mechanics. It is a tap-to-earn game mixed with a crypto exchange simulator.

The project has already announced that it will launch its token and conduct an airdrop on The Open Network (TON), the blockchain where Notcoin was launched and TapSwap is preparing to be launched.

With this anticipated airdrop, Hamster Kombat will reward players for racking up in-game coins by eventually airdropping them real, tradeable crypto tokens.

How the Hamster Kombat game works 

On Tapswap and Notcoin, users tap the screen to earn coins, but the Hamster Kombat mechanic is a different ball game.

Picture this:

You are the CEO of an upcoming crypto exchange, and it’s your job to grow the exchange to great heights. To do this, you tap a golden coin to earn coins and then use those coins to upgrade your exchange in the “Mine” tab of the game. 

This tab shows all kinds of upgrades that players can purchase (with in-game coins) for their exchange. The upgrade includes features like adding Bitcoin to be traded at your exchange, setting up a KYC process, or going on the Joe Rogan podcast.

Every upgrade purchased for the crypto exchange earns you more coins passively. In practical terms, adding the BTC pair to your exchange costs 250 points, but then earns you 40 points per hour. In simpler terms, these additions pay off and help boost your exchange.

Gamers can earn passively- they can purchase special cards in the “Mine” section, allowing their exchange to continue earning coins even after they exit the game for up to 3 hours. Various boosts are available in the game to accelerate earnings, such as increasing tap productivity and raising the energy limit, among others.

Additionally, Hamster Kombat players can complete special missions to earn additional coins.

Another way to gain more coins is through a referral program. Players receive bonuses for inviting friends to the Hamster Kombat game.

What will the Hamster Kombat airdrop token look like?

We mentioned earlier that Hamster Kombat has already announced an upcoming airdrop slated for July. Full details are not available yet but the team has already clarified that, unlike Notcoin, it won’t be a straight conversion from in-game coins to on-chain tokens.

According to an X (Twitter) post on June 6: “Airdrop will depend on the profit per hour and some other [activity] parameters that we will reveal later, NOT the coin balance.”

Also on May 31, Hamster Kombat announced on X (Twitter) that it would launch its token on the TON blockchain. 

Dear CEOs! The Hamster Family has become the biggest edutainment community not only on Telegram but in the entire crypto industry. We are now happy to share that we have decided to launch our product & upcoming token on the TON blockchain.” It said 

Hamster Kombat will join Notcoin, TapSwap, and Yescoin on the Telegram-backed blockchain. If you have not started, you can still join here
