Zebedee, a platform for earning rewards in bitcoins

provider of “virtual payments for virtual worlds”


Zebedee can consolidate itself into a revolutionary platform, which uses Bitcoin to create a gaming ecosystem in which it is possible to earn rewards in BTC with payments through the Lightning network. This implementation can be integrated within games already established in the community, such as Counter Strike.

The platform is divided into two structures: wallet and reward system. The wallet integrates the Lightning network technology to receive and

send payments in BTC instantly and with very low fees.

The reward system is called Infuse and basically works as a sub-process that modifies the original experience offered by the game. Thus, it gives the option to receive rewards in BTC via the Lightning network.

Counter Strike, one of the established games in which Infuse works, allows you to earn rewards in BTC, for each enemy annihilated in the games. This was reported by CryptoNews at the time of the announcement of this possibility, in December 2020.

It should be noted that Counter Strike is not a P2E (play to earn) game like Axie Infinity. Here we are talking about a platform that allows you to earn BTC if you connect it with various games.
