You might remember awhile back I wrote https://hackernoon.com/solana-nfts-gamer-economics-and-a-glorious-rant “Solana, NFTs, Gamer Economics, and a Glorious Rant” which detailed my first exploration into programming on blockchain in Rust.
What a wild ride it’s been! While that initial program poked a little bit of fun at Jordan (@redacted_j), this new evolution (on the same domain, mind you) pokes that same fun (again) but also new fun at Noah (@redacted_noah) - indeed the rivalry I like to engage with is brotherly :)
I didn’t exactly take a break from breaking Solana and learning Rust, mind you - check a commit that was merged a bit ago, wherein I was introduced to another cool cat Austin (@_austbot):

For those of you inclined to code, the memes are glorious:
Aww, the maintainers removed it :( oh well! The line that did the magic did indeed at one point trail with // Magik!
Anywho, now that @StrataFoundation (by Noah) raised oodles of cash for their genius (and then won oodles more at Riptide) and I’ve been playing with this stuff for ages, and now that Aust and Noah joined forces to do this:
I believe it’s high time we do an actual factual game on Blockchain, finally.
It’s live on mainnet-beta :)
What is it? It’s almost a 1:1 clone exactly of Fomo3d (exitscam.me) on Solana.
It’s a gigaponzi, hear me out…
There are two (or more) ways to play & potentially earn. Let’s discuss the obvious game first, and meta-game second.
As promised, these are the cool bits:
Edit 1: looking back, I see about $400 USD in fees I went thru overnight via testing in production :) and bugfixin' :D
goes to the 2 users who were staked at the time :)
Just when @NostalgicGareth thought there was no free lunch…
… I really really hope he was staked :D
