SaruTobi: The Updated App That Pays You Bitcoin For Playing

Last updated on April 16th, 2015 at 07:15 pm

A few weeks ago I wrote an article about the app SaruTobi. This app involved playing a simple game that paid you Bitcoin for every X minutes, hours, etc. that you played. The coins were paid out to whatever wallet you chose and were paid in 100 bit totals. The game was great, until someone hacked it and would take all the donated Bitcoin prior to any other players earning it.

Well, this issue seems to have been resolved. Mandel Duck (the creator company of SaruTobi) seems to have partnered with Xapo and the payments have begun again. The only downside is that you are no longer able to use any wallet address, you must use a Xapo wallet. Another possible downside to the game now is that you do not get bits just for playing, but rather you have to collect 12 Black Coins in the game order to earn a tip.

Normally I would be all for this, however, the tip ranges from 10 bits to 1,000 bits (this is the scale I have received, feel free to comment below if you’ve received higher or lower) and averages (for me) to be under 100 bits per tip. On the positive side, the game has been updated and now has two different games in one.

The donation pot also seems to be well stacked. It has been hovering around 2 Bitcoins in total. This is possibly due to having to earn your tips instead of just automatically receiving them.

This is a great way to introduce people to Bitcoin as the game is fun. Someone new to Bitcoin should feel happy receiving a small tip, even if it is under 100 bits.

What are your thoughts on this game? Have you played it yourself? Feel free to leave your comments below.

Hi Austin, I’d like to clarify where you saw that Xapo charges 100 bits to send payments to another wallet? There are no fees to send or receive bitcoins through Xapo. In fact, it’s quite the opposite and we reimburse all miner fees for all transactions you make via the blockchain. Cheers!

Was this a miner fee or something else? As I mentioned we’ve never charged fees to transfer between wallets. the only explanation is the miner fee if you sent to a non-Xapo user which is the case for any payment sent through the blockchain. As of the past 3 months we’ve also begun reimbursing all miner fees.

Could you please send me a screenshot to [email protected] and if there was an error we will reimburse you for this.

I will use this app 100%. I hope it will be helpful for me to earn my first Bitcoins. I don’t know another app from where you can get paid to play games.
