- FreeLoadr leverages crypto mining to bring PC games to wider audience -
LONDON, Aug. 6, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Online Blockchain plc (LSE:OBC), the leading UK-listed blockchain company, is pleased to announce the next exciting phase of its FreeLoadr product.
FreeLoadr (www.freeloadr.com) is an application that enables gamers to donate their latent graphic computing power (GPU) in return for FreeLoadr points, which can be redeemed in the FreeLoadr store for popular PC games. FreeLoadr uses this GPU processing power to mine selected cryptocurrencies.
The referral programme gives existing users (FreeLoadrs) and newcomers the opportunity to receive a significant points boost and redeem games at an accelerated rate. If a current 'FreeLoadr' shares their referral URL and this results in a registration, they and the new user are both rewarded with an extra 50,000 points the moment the new user starts mining (mining is done in the background, the user just has to run the application). Games can be redeemed for as little as 30,000 points.
FreeLoadr is in open beta and boasts over 2,500 of the hottest Steam and Origin titles available. The game catalogue can be viewed here: https://www.freeloadr.com/store
"The launch of the referral programme will further propagate the FreeLoadr product amongst the gaming community, which ultimately has significant impact on our hashing power," said Clem Chambers, CEO of Online Blockchain plc. "This is one of a number of developments and new features, which will be announced in due course."
