What Is Hamster Kombat? The Latest Crypto Game on Telegram

Are the hamsters fighting now? Not entirely, the title of Hamster Kombat is a bit misleading, but this Telegram-based clicker game has quickly become a leader in the play-to-ear space by expanding on Notcoin’s revenue model.

The Hamster Kombat team recently announced that they will be conducting an airdrop on The Open Network (TON), which will reward players who have accumulated in-game coins by dropping a real, tradeable crypto token at some point.

This will no doubt get more people excited about the game, but as of this writing, new players can still join and collect coins before the airdrop. Here’s what you need to know about Hamster Kombat, how to play, and what we know so far about the token and airdrop.

What is Hamster Kombat?

Like Notcoin, Hamster Kombat requires players to tap on the Telegram native application (or “mini-app”) to earn coins. This means that all you need to do to play the game is open a chat in Telegram.

The game developers claim to have attracted over 60 million users, all of whom are eagerly tapping on the game to earn coins that will presumably be used to determine how many tokens players will receive in upcoming Hamster Kombat airdrops.

Hamster Kombat has been around since March, but it was only recently, after the Notcoin airdrop was completed, that the game really took off. Perhaps it’s because typing-addicted players are switching to new games where tokens and airdrops are their job.

The basic concept of Hamster Kombat is similar to Notcoin, but it adds a slightly richer gameplay mechanic on top of it. In a nutshell, it’s a tap-to-earn game combined with a cryptocurrency exchange simulator.

In Hamster Kombat, you are the CEO of an up-and-coming cryptocurrency exchange, and it’s your job to take your exchange to a level never before seen in the hamster world. To do this, players tap on gold coins to earn coins, then use those coins to buy upgrades for the exchange.

How to play Hamster Kombat

Hamster Kombat starts in a way that will be familiar to Notcoin users, with players tapping gold coins in the Telegram app. But in Hamster Kombat, the first step is, for some reason, shaving your hamster’s fur so you can become the CEO of a cryptocurrency exchange.

Like Notcoin, players can use in-game points to buy “boosts” that improve stats such as the number of points they earn per tap and the amount of time they can tap before taking a break and waiting for their energy bar to refill. There’s also a free daily booster that players can claim six times a day.

Once players have accumulated points, they can use them to upgrade their wallet in the game’s “Mine” tab. This tab displays all types of upgrades that players can purchase for the exchange (using only in-game coins). This includes adding coins such as Bitcoin to trade on the exchange, setting up a KYC process, and even participating in the Joe Rogan podcast.

Every time you purchase an upgrade for your exchange, you passively earn more coins. For example, adding a BTC pair to the exchange costs 250 points, but you earn 40 points per hour. In other words, these additions will bring you immediate profits and help propel you further into the stock market.

“Airdrop who?”

What is the point of earning coins in the game? Like Notcoin, Hamster Kombat also announced an upcoming airdrop, but initially it was much more transparent than Notcoin.

The Hamster Kombat app has an “Airdrop” tab that states that partnerships between exchanges and market makers have already been negotiated, but does not mention an exact date for the airdrop itself.

Notcoin ran for three months before gameplay was suspended, issuing tokens just over a month later. Of course, Hamster Kombat may not be following the exact same routine. But given the hype that Notcoin has generated and translated into market value, it would not be surprising if Hamster Kombat emulated such a technique as well.
