Tools

Tools will help you get a leg up on the competition. They come in different types and have a lifespan and will wear out over time.

Shovel

If you want to get the Bitcoins
faster, and before your competitors
do, you'll want a shovel. Shovels come
in a variety sizes and the bigger
your shovel, the fast you can dig.

Telescopes

Telescopes help you see further around
you. You'll get an edge by being able to
see fields of Bitcoins farther away than
your opponents and even see the
opponents around you.

Explosives

You can plant mines that explode when
an opponent gets within a certain range,
or bombs that go off at a certain time
of day or can even be detonated
remotely by you.

Armor

Weather you are playing dirty or not,
you'll want to be protected from your
opponents aggressions. Armor comes in
various gauges, the stronger the armor,
the less loss you'll sustain from a blast.

Form alliances, partnerships, wars and truces

Whether you are a loner, just a little bit bad, or prefer to play with your friends and split the spoils.

Lone Miner

You prefer to go it alone and live and let live. You find fields of Bitcoins, and harvest them. You might even find a field that only you know about and can go back to over and over to reap the benefits.

Miner Collective

You’re a social creature and prefer working with people hand in hand. You harvest in teams and everyone wins. Decide with whom you want to cooperate and how to divide up the fruits of your labor.

Cunning Punderer

You just a little bit of a bad boy and don’t mind using a little force where necessary. You map out your territory and protect it with explosive devices, then swoop in to collect the spoils.

The Wolf Pack

You believe in safety in numbers and that the best hunting is done as a team. Like a pack of wolves you and your friends spread out over a territory to discover the most populous and profitable areas.

Cashout in Bitrunner Banks

Cashout is possible in Bitrunner Banks that are virtual banks located in a physical space.
They can be anything from a tree, a lamp post, a fountain to a coffee shop, etc…
You must physically go to the bank location to make a deposit or withdrawal.

Zones arounds banks are a safe zone from bombs and robberies so that
no one can perform ATM style holdups with clients carrying lots of
treasure to deposit, or having just made a withdrawal.

You can also change your Bitcoins for cash that will
be deposited into your real-life bank account
in your local currency.
