What's the connection between the hamster and blockchain?

Cryptocurrency trading is quite a gamble, but recently something much more exciting has emerged in the blockchain ecosystem. A hamster chasing balls on which bets are accepted on the Ethereum network - how do you like that, Elon Musk? Watching the adorable Dzungarian hamster Mia, who loves to spin her wheel, the development team decided that with her help it would be possible to rethink gambling in a new, digital space. This is how the Miya and Balls blockchain project arose.

What's the connection between the hamster and blockchain?

The principle of the bets is simple - Miya turns a wheel to which a mechanism is connected, which allows you to drive small colored balls through an obstacle course. Players can bet on any of the balls. The lane is thought out quite carefully, it has moving elements that can change the direction of the balls as they move to make the race interesting. The points awarded to the players depend on the difficulty of passing the elements.

But what does blockchain have to do with it? The racing platform will be tied to an Ethereum-based blockchain application, and the race itself will be carried out in a live stream format, where you can observe not only the movement of balls on the platform but also the first 8 bits of the blockchain. The Ethereum network is perfect for the development of various gambling games, but, unfortunately, the complexity of regulation often gives rise to fraudulent projects that discredit gambling in the cryptocurrency space.

Unlike existing cryptocurrency games, the race with Mia will be completely transparent and physically visible. No fraud and a completely understandable mechanism for calculating rewards - the goal of the project team was to demonstrate that gambling on a decentralized blockchain can be fair and restore user confidence in this type of entertainment in the cryptocurrency ecosystem.

The developers really enjoy working with Mia, although there have been some difficult moments between them. At a younger age, she often bit their fingers, but then the team worked together. Miya is very active and able to run more than 8 km per day inside her wheel. The team plans to develop the project further, making the race area more difficult and making the game more exciting. No competition, no incentive system - just a cheerful hamster turns his wheel with pleasure, contributing to the development of the cryptocurrency entertainment industry.
