Mine Loot Boxes With Your PC With This New App For Free
Microtransactions for games such as Overwatch, while purely a cosmetic addition to gameplay, can be hard or tedious to accumulate currency for. So why not have your PC mine loot boxes and in-game money for you? Thankfully, a brand new app is currently in its beta phase that allows computers to mine loot boxes while you’re away and it’s completely free.
Created by Gamma Innovations, the developer created GammaNow, a PC application that allows it to mine game currencies while on idle. Best of all? It’s completely free and secure. Players can mine currency for such games as League of Legends for Riot Points, Overwatch loot boxes, Hearthstone packs, and others.
So, how does it work exactly? Well, after your computer has been idle for about 20 seconds, the GammaNow app will crack its knuckles and get started on processing tasks on their blockchain network, thus earning players Gamma Points. As the developer puts it – lend your computer’s proccessing power, earn GP, then redeem them. These points can be exchanged for the currency of your choice online title.
For example, 30-thousand Gamma Points will earn players an equivalent of 24 Overwatch loot boxes, or 60-thousand for 51. Meanwhile, 30-thousand GP will earn 3500 Riot Points or fifteen Hearthstone card packs. It’s really as easy as that. The rate in which your PC is able to mine GP is likely to be entirely dependent upon your processing power. With the popularity GammaNow has gained in light of its ability, it is currently pausing registration for the time being. “Due to a sudden influx of users, we have paused sign-up emails,” reads the website notice. “Join our waitlist and we will contact you with sign-up details when we stabilize the application. Thank you!”
