From TechCrunch - April 16, 2018

The cryptocurrency world is a strange one, but at least it has a sense of humor. A new game has you riding a little crypto-car along the wildly fluctuating prices of major and minor currencies. Its quite ridiculous, and it isnt even a bad game!

Its called Crypto Rider, predictably, and is very much a spawn of the popular Line Rider type of game, though (hopefully) different enough that there wont be any cease and desists forthcoming.

You select your car, then pick a chart to ridemost are a ride from a coins humble start to its highest value. But theres a mountain-like total market cap track, a drag race where you need to clear a valuation gap, and one that must be depressing for BTC holders: a bumpy downhill ride from $20K to $7,850. New tracks should appear in time as well as new cryptocurrencies rise and fall.

The game is cutethere are fun messages along the track, and the exhaust is tiny coinsand you collect coins toward unlocking new cars. Im pretty sure theyre just aesthetic changes but Im gunning for a Dogecar anyway.

The game was a side project for me to do in my own time, wrote back Daniel Fahey, founder of the developer, SuperFly Games. So the first original 10 tracks were what I felt were needed to give the game some replayability. But after the reception the game has received during its launch day, I will certainly being adding more tracks.
