In Alpha 4.1, we’ve redesigned the interface for exchanging coins and introducing the coin exchange system. You can now use your in-game phone to deposit/withdraw your coins to a coin exchange and buy/sell using the exchange.
You can deposit the coins to the wallet in the coin exchange and sell your coins. The coin balance in the bottom left corner and coins in the wallet are separated. Once you deposit coins to the wallet in the exchange, they are subtracted from your balance. It is similar to real-life exchange process. First you find a cryptocurrency exchange and send your coins there to exchange them for cash. Buying coins are also similar. Once you buy your coins you can withdraw them from the exchange. In real-life, once you buy cryptocurrency from an exchange you have the option to store them in the wallet in the exchange or your own wallet. If you are storing your coins in the exchange and the website got hacked, you lose your coins too. This might be the case for the next update.
Transaction Fees! This is not good news. There is a 2% transaction fee on every buy/sell operation now. More realism to come :)
As always, feel free to share your feedback and suggestions through discussion forums or email. We’ve included most of the requested features in the game so far.
Thanks for playing!
