The first edition of the Bitcoin Empire was funded via Kickstarter in November 2016. Later on, it was taken to retail. The second edition, which was dubbed “To The Moon” received funding in February 2018. In December of 2017, the first mainstream use case of a non-fungible token standard was witnessed via CryptoKitties. With the blockchain technology established, the Bitcoin Empire has decided to move from a real-world tabletop game to one on the blockchain. The Bitcoin Empire is going to build on its established tabletop card game to create a web platform where investors can trade digital, collectable cards that are built on Ethereum. To make purchases, the user will utilize the Bitcoin Empire Tokens (BEM). Not only can these cards be bought and sold, but they can also be printed and used to play the Bitcoin Empire game. There will be 10 thousand cards created for the web platform. These cards will be rewarded to BEM token holders at that time.
