Hamster Kombat: From Viral Sensation to Blockchain Innovation

Hamster Kombat, the popular Telegram mini app, has achieved remarkable success since its launch in March 2024, attracting over 200 million players within just 81 days. Pavel Durov, founder of Telegram, highlighted the game's rapid growth, noting it took only 73 days to reach 100 million monthly users. The game, described as a "crypto exchange CEO simulator," allows players to generate in-game coins by tapping their hamster avatar and purchasing exchange upgrades to increase profit per hour. With the completion of onchain infrastructure and in-game wallet implementation in June 2024, Hamster Kombat is set to introduce its token on the TON blockchain, aiming to onboard millions to blockchain technology. The game's innovative approach includes rewarding players for watching YouTube content and engaging in daily ciphers, contributing to its viral success and significant social media following.
