House of Crypto is a game meant to educate the public about various cryptocurrencies and cryptographic payments. The game distributes periodic rewards and allows you to better educate yourself on the methods and risks related to cryptocurrencies.
House of Crypto is a game of skill; meant to test your ability to perform complicated tasks in short times and to test your strategy while defending your base.
As such, in any case of a network error, operating system error or other error, you may lose a battle and therefore reduce your ability to win a reward. Please ensure that you are in an optimal state when using the game, including a solid and fast internet connection, a charger, and lots of free time.
The game is for adults. We provide real life rewards that have monetary value. We cannot provide minors the option to participate in such a contest, and to earn money. It also means that you might, under your own laws, pay taxes for winning the rewards. In order to pay payouts, our partners may require that you perform “know your customer” procedures.
Please understand that this is just a game; even though the reward is real, there may be glitches. This means that we cannot be liable if you lose the game, and subsequently, the rewards.
Please read the full terms. You’re planning on winning an Island, and this is the agreement that’s meant to bring you there.
Registration and Eligibility.
Our game is meant for adults, meaning that you have to be over eighteen (18) years of age to participate.
If you are under eighteen years and over thirteen, then you have requested your parents permission, which was granted after they read these terms. Please understand as a minor, without parental consent, you will lose your rewards. Also, if you’re under thirteen, you will not receive the reward whatsoever.
We allow one account per person. We may disqualify you if we find out you operated more than one account, or if more than one person used your account.
If you are one of our employees, service providers, contractors or shareholders, or you’re in kinship with one of them, you cannot participate. Sorry.
In order to play the game you also need to make sure that you are eligible to enter into agreements at the jurisdiction you reside at. This means that you are not bankrupt, there are no legal actions taken against you that may impair your ability to enter into agreements and that there are no other impediments from you accepting these terms.
You may not be a resident of a hostile country, such as Iran, North Korea, Libya, Syria or any other country which is in a state of war with either the United States or Israel. Nor you may be a member of a terror organization.
You are playing this game for our own enjoyment and you understand that all rewards are personal and non-transferrable.
Please note that if you provided false information to us upon registration, you may forfeit the rewards.
The Game Itself
The game itself is a turn-based tower-defense game, where you are required to protect your fortress while using your forces to conquer the enemy.
When you register for the game, you will pick a house. You can amend your selection after the end of each tournament, or, by contacting us directly and in such case we may require payment for changing house selection.
Opponents are chosen randomly, and you can pick your forces (avatars) and in-game-properties.
The gameplay may involve human players or computer based entities who play against you, if you use tutorial mode.
Please note that non-participation in a tournament may mean forfeiture of your virtual assets, in the same manner as if you had lost the tournament.
Neurons and Chains.
The game has two in-app currencies: Neurons and Chains. These in-app currencies can be mined (meaning, issued to you in each period of activity), or bought. Each of these currencies has different in-game uses, like paying for in game assets, for tournament participation and for changing houses.
You may receive in app currencies for winning games, or for watching educational material, or for other in-game activity.
Every period, according to your ranking, you may win a cryptographic coin reward from the house you are a member of. There may be both a payout threshold, and a transaction fee threshold. This means that in some cases your payout will be suspended.
You cannot use the in-app currencies to buy rewards, as they are given solely by merit.
We may refuse to provide the rewards if we believe, in good faith, that giving out the rewards may be illegal in your jurisdiction or that it may cause other damages, or if we believe that you acted in bad faith or otherwise cheated. We may refuse to provide the rewards if there is an actual dispute of your identity or if we believe that your account was compromised.
Your only claim in a case where we refuse to provide you with a reward is limited to the amount you actually paid us during the 14-days prior to that damage.
You acknowledge that the reward is only a novelty, and that playing the game is the real contest. We give out these rewards as a promotional decision, and not as a binding agreement.
Moreover, you may be required to pay taxes, if applicable in your jurisdiction. Please understand your local laws before receiving any reward.
Terms of airdrop
1.Airdrop timeline will be published on our website and app.
2. Each house reward pool will be distributed with the house players based on the stars they accumulated relativity to the total stars accumulated by all players of the same house.
3. Max win per user is capped with $20 with no minimum with the exception of networks where the transaction fee is more than 20% of the reward value.
Example: If you played for house Bitcoin we take the total amount of stars accumulated by all players in house Bitcoin divided by your number of stars is the % you will get from the airdrop amount of the house in the specific airdrop cycle.
Reset and Tournament End
At the end of each tournament, which is a set period of time, some of the in-app assets and scores may be reset. These may be your assets, your balance of non-purchased Chains or Neurons, or other in-app settings. This was chosen to allow fair competition, and please make sure that you understand that all in-game virtual property is reset at some point.
