19

Pavel Durov, CEO of Telegram, one of the most popular messaging applications, has highlighted the significance of Hamster Kombat, a tap-to-earn game where players assume the role of a hamster who is the CEO of a crypto exchange, in bringing blockchain technology to millions of people. According to Durov’s data, 239 million users have signed up to be part of the game.

Durov explained that Hamster Kombat has skyrocketed in popularity, attracting 239 million users within just three months of its release. The game utilizes the mini-app protocol that Telegram launched back in 2020, but it only recently gained momentum with the advent of tap-to-earn projects like Notcoin and Hamster Kombat. Durov emphasized that Hamster Kombat’s acceptance led the project to gather 100 million users in only 73 days, revealing that four to five million users are joining the game daily, making it the “fastest-growing digital service in the world.”

Durov proclaimed that this game would soon play a pivotal role in demonstrating the power of blockchain technology to its users. In a statement on his Telegram channel, Durov announced:

“Soon, Hamster’s team will mint its token on TON, introducing the benefits of blockchain to hundreds of millions of people.”

He concluded with, “A new era is arriving, and we are witnessing its arrival in real-time.” The game’s surge in popularity in Iran has prompted authorities to label it a “soft war” tool purportedly used by the West against Iran’s government. According to AP reports, Rear Admiral Habibollah Sayyari, deputy chief of Iran’s military, described the game as a distraction aimed at making Iranians overlook the presidential proposals ahead of the elections.

While the precise date for the airdrop of the game’s token is yet to be announced, several platforms have already commenced pre-market trading in anticipation of its release.
