- 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
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
"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."
