We are very excited to announce that Genesis Mining has become a sponsor of the recently released iPhone App, SaruTobi.
After becoming players ourselves, we found it nearly impossible not to become involved in one of the most exciting Bitcoin apps that has been released. The app was released at the start of this year and has quickly grown in popularity with existing Bitcoin holders and mainstream users, reaching over 7,400 downloads in the past 6 weeks.
As stated on Coindesk, “The game, SaruTobi, lets users swing a monkey from a vine, building up momentum before releasing him to collect power-ups and Bitcoin tokens as he frolics though the air.”
The apps revenue, which is generated from in-store purchases, sponsors and donations, is put into a pot (a shared Bitcoin wallet) then distributed to players in Bitcoin tips. As our part of the sponsorship, we have given 15,000 GH/s in mining power that will also go directly into the Bitcoin pot.
We believe developing fun and easy ways to introduce Bitcoin to new users is a powerful way to grow the ecosystem and we look forward to working with such an innovative team.
