Meerkat Mining is a web-based product. This is a gold mining strategy game, where the game is played and prizes are paid in cryptocurrency. A cryptocurrency is a digital or virtual currency that uses cryptography for security. Cryptocurrencies are decentralized systems based on blockchain technology, which is a distributed ledger enforced by a disparate network of computers. Many blockchain networks operate as public databases, meaning that anyone with an internet connection can view a list of the network’s transaction history. That is, when a user makes public transactions, their unique code called a public key, is recorded on the blockchain, rather than their personal information.
This game is originally developed on the ETH network which is the database of the game.
