Dragonglass is the world’s first gamified crypto-mining experience. Mining Dragonglass cryptocurrency is as easy and fun as playing a mobile game. It provides user-friendly and affordable cryptocurrency mining solution to everyone. Besides being fun and engaging, Dragonglass is also powerful: by using hybrid mining technology, it is thousands of times more efficient than traditional cryptocurrency mining methods used to mine such cryptocurrencies as Bitcoin.
Dragonglass is a mineable cryptocurrency and utility token. It is an ERC-20 standard digital token based on the Ethereum blockchain. The main features of Dragonglass are its ease of use, affordability and mining efficiency.
To learn how the Dragonglass mining works, read: Q: How does the process of Dragonglass mining look like?
Yes, it is fully functional ERC-20 standard cryptocurrency, operating on the Ethereum blockchain.
Dragonglass was created with the purpose of bringing cryptocurrency mining to the general public. Before Dragonglass, there was no simple and affordable way to mine cryptocurrencies. We strongly believe that cryptocurrency mining will be widely adopted only after the process of mining becomes simple and affordable. Better still: fun and engaging. We also believe it is high time for the blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies in general to head toward a more decentralized and democratic future so everyone can reap its benefits.
Dragonglass was founded by two software engineers – Gleb Skibitsky, an 18-year old programmer from Vilnius, Lithuania and Mart Lume, former employee #1 at the world-famous productivity software company Slack. The project is currently being developed by 13 additional team members and 5 advisors.
The vast majority of ICOs offer nothing more, but mere promises before crowdfunding their projects. While investing in such ICOs you can’t be sure if these promises will be kept – a technological solution laid in whitepaper might not work in practice, a team behind project’s development might be incompetent, there might be unaddressed legal issues that will come to haunt such a project in the future.
Unlike the vast majority of ICOs/TGEs today, the Dragonglass team has beforehand proven that they are capable of delivering what was promised. Dragonglass has already implemented a novel crypto-mining solution, developed working products (Dragonglass app) and launched a physical Ethereum mining farm. More great things are coming. Stay tuned!
Mining Dragonglass is much more simple, fun and affordable. Unlike Bitcoin or other traditional cryptocurrencies, you don’t need no advanced knowledge of sophisticated mining methods or expensive hardware to mine it. You can mine Dragonglass simply by playing a mobile game.
Not really. It’s all math. See Q: What happens when I play the game? for a simple explanation. For more detailed and technical one see the section “How the Dragonglass tokens are mined?” in our whitepaper.
Dragonglass mining doesn’t rely on computing power of users’ devices. Our mining method is completely different to traditional cryptocurrency mining. Dragonglass is mined by transacting (sending) tokens, not by using your phone’s CPU. This method doesn’t stress your phone’s/tablet’s hardware.
You can mine Dragonglass with any Android smartphone that’s capable enough to run a little 2D mobile game. Also you can already mine using iOS!
We’ve built a cryptocurrency mining farm to mine ETH, used for Dragonglass transaction fees. This makes Dragonglass mining a more self-sufficient and independent process.
It is! Dragonglass is based on blockchain and the key to any cryptocurrency blockchain’s security is that any changes made to the database are immediately sent to all users to create a secure, established record. With copies of the data in all users’ hands, the database remains safe even if some users are compromised. It is so secure that the Pentagon’s cyber security experts believe the blockchain technology might be used as a cybersecurity shield to dramatically improve military security and prevent even the most severe cyber threats.
Traditional cryptocurrency mining usually requires extensive mining expertise, extremely expensive mining hardware and even programming skills. Dragonglass mining happens while you play a game. It is so fun and simple, even your mom can (and will probably) mine it.
As of today (10/02/2017) we have:
Not at all. Besides in believing that our project will make crypto more accessible to the general public, we are also strong believers in the principle of giving back to the community. Because of this we will fulfil our goal to donate 5% of the total Dragonglass supply to support different causes, especially focusing on tech education and supporting blockchain community development.
The app is free. All you need to do is to load it with Dragonglass (DGS) tokens and some Ethereum.
No, with Dragonglass app you can only mine DGS tokens.
It is. Our software engineers worked day and night to develop the Dragonglass app as secure as it gets.
It’s a fun and fast-paced game inside the Dragonglass app about digging deep under the surface of the Earth, mining Dragonglass and avoiding obstacles in your way.
Any modern Android device should do. However, in case, you want to get technical, the minimum requirements:
OS: Android 4.4 or later
CPU: ARMv7 CPU with NEON support or Atom CPU
GPU: With OpenGL ES 2.0 support
The Dragonglass Miner game was created to make Dragonglass token mining simple and exciting so everyone can mine cryptocurrency.
While you are having fun playing the game, the Dragonglass app makes seamless cryptocurrency transactions and multiplies your Dragonglass tokens. You’ll be guiding a miner through rocks and gravel deeper and deeper underground. The deeper you go, the more levels you complete. Each successfully completed level multiplies your initial Dragonglass tokens. So if you’ve originally had 1 Dragonglass token (DGS) before starting the game, after 10 successfully completed levels you will have 11 DGS tokens (1 DGS that you’ve bought + 10 DGS mined).
Every time you successfully complete a level of the game, your Dragonglass tokens multiply. The more tokens you have at the beginning, the more you’ll have after each completed level. And yes, every time the value of Dragonglass cryptocurrency rises, the more you’ll earn.
In case you are the type who hates fun, then obviously no. Since the Dragonglass Miner game doesn’t use your smartphone’s resources, and your Dragonglass tokens multiply just by playing it, we don’t see any reasons not to.
It is, although the process is less exciting and more technical. Mining outside the game is performed by making DGS transactions to oneself. The transaction fees are paid in ETH.
The game is endless. The first 10 levels are designed by us, the rest are randomly generated each time.
No, there’s a 10x mining limit to the initial amount of Dragonglass you’ve bought. So if you’ve originally had 1 Dragonglass token (DGS) before starting the game, after 10 successfully completed levels you can earn a maximum of 11 DGS tokens (1 DGS that you’ve bought + 10 DGS mined).
You will have to try again. Your tokens multiply only when the level is completed successfully.
The game is complete, tested and working. It definitely isn’t an early bug-ridden alpha version.
You should visit https://tge.dragonglass.com and buy DGS tokens by sending ETH from your personal Ethereum wallet to Dragonglass TGE smart contract address
Download the Dragonglass app for your iPhone https://dragonglass.com/dragonglass-for-ios/ or Android smartphone https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.Dragonglass.DragonglassApplication and start mining while playing the mobile game right away! Sounds pretty easy? It is!
To learn how the Dragonglass mining works step by step, read: Q: How does the process of Dragonglass mining look like?
You can buy the tokens with ETH. But don’t use exchange accounts or ledger nano or trezor, because you can’t export your private key.
We recommend using MyEtherWallet (MEW)
Yes, you can send ETH from your Ethereum wallet to Dragonglass smart contract address. The minimum amount is 0.05 ETH.
You can buy Dragonglass tokens with Ethereum (ETH).
As with most other solid cryptocurrencies, this might be the only opportunity to buy Dragonglass at its lowest price. Another reason why you should consider buying Dragonglass early is that during the Dragonglass TGE, the price of DGS token will be pegged to ETH price by the rate of 1 DGS:0.000027 ETH. The higher the price of Ethereum, the higher the price of DGS.
A total amount of 1,111,111,111 Dragonglass tokens will be distributed.
You can buy up to 20 ETH worth of Dragonglass.
You will be able to use mined Dragonglass in other other Dragonglass games, send it to other people or hold it.
Yes, in order to make a transaction, you will have to pay for it with Ethereum cryptocurrency.
The speed of transactions depends on the amount that you’re willing to spend as transaction fee. The speed also depends on the state of the Ethereum network – if the network is unclogged, transactions take no more than a couple of minutes.
Dragonglass is much more than just another cryptocurrency. Besides gamified mining, the Dragonglass smartphone app provides a secure and easy-to-use functionality for holding DGS and ETH tokens.
It is the only cryptocurrency that can be mined while playing a game. It means you don’t need deep expertise, expensive hardware or vast financial resources to start mining cryptocurrency. Your smartphone and Dragonglass app will do. It is the only solution that offers you a possibility to seamlessly mine cryptocurrency while playing fun and exciting mobile game.
Cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin or Ethereum are innovations that, in theory, should make financial transactions easier, faster and more secure. However, just like the Internet in its early days, cryptocurrencies are still too complicated, too time consuming and too unfriendly for mass adoption. To mine cryptocurrency you usually need extensive knowledge, expensive hardware or even programing skills. All of this is no longer necessary with Dragonglass as it provides user-friendly and affordable cryptocurrency mining solution to everyone. You can seamlessly mine Dragonglass tokens while playing an engaging mobile game about mining.
Yes, it is. See: Q: What is Dragonglass?

Blockchain is an algorithm and distributed data structure for managing digital transactions among anonymous users, that works without a central administration. Simply put, blockchain technology allows cryptocurrency users to make direct, safe and anonymous digital money transactions to one another without banks controlling them.
Cryptocurrencies represent digital money created to be anonymous and secure. Cryptocurrencies operate by using cryptography – a technique for secure transfer and storage of information. In contrast to traditional currencies like U.S. dollars or euros, cryptocurrencies have no physical form, as they are used only virtually. Instead of being backed by governments, cryptocurrencies are backed by their respective blockchain networks. Simply put, cryptocurrencies are entries in databases that are spread across these networks. The structure of blockchain and algorithms prevent falsifying these entries. Created with cryptography, the entries are secured with mathematics, not people.
Altcoins are cryptocurrency coins that are an alternative to Bitcoin. The vast majority of altcoins are based on publicly available open source Bitcoin code, and created by altering it to have unique features.
Token is a representation of a digital asset or utility that usually works on top of another blockchain. Tokens can represent any asset (not just financial) that can be transferable as data.
There is. The main difference is that cryptocurrency coins have their own blockchains while tokens operate on top of existing blockchains.
Utility token is a digital token that provides its users with future access to a product or service.
Cryptocurrency mining validates transactions between cryptocurrency owners. It is a very important part of blockchain technology, allowing it to operate without any central authority like a bank.
Cryptocurrencies run on blockchains, which are shared virtual documents, duplicated multiple times across a vast network of computers. Every transaction and ownership of a cryptocurrency is recorded in these blockchains. The transactions in blockchains are made available by miners performing sophisticated calculations with powerful computers. In return for these calculations, miners are then rewarded with cryptocurrencies they mine.
An ICO is the abbreviation for Initial Coin Offering, which is a popular way to crowdfund blockchain-based projects by releasing new digital tokens to fund project development.
A cryptocurrency wallet, similar to a physical wallet, is used to carry (store) money. However, in cryptocurrency wallets, instead of carrying physical money, people store cryptocurrencies that are virtual. One can store, send and receive cryptocurrency from his/her own cryptocurrency wallet. There are various cryptocurrency wallets coming in different forms: mobile, online, hardware and even paper ones.
It is an address (public key) of a cryptocurrency wallet. Its function is similar to a bank account number. It’s a unique combination of letters and numbers that can be safely given to the third parties in order to receive cryptocurrency. The address can also be represented as a QR code.
A private key is a form of cryptography that allows a user to access his/her cryptocurrency. It helps to protect users from theft and unauthorized access to their cryptocurrency. Private keys should be at all times held in highest secrecy and never disclosed to the third parties.
Proof of Work in blockchain is competition between miners to solve mathematical puzzles and find correct answers (hashes). The competition is used to verify cryptocurrency transactions between cryptocurrency owners within their respective blockchains. The miners who find (compute) the hash first, get rewarded with the cryptocurrency they mine. The PoW method requires powerful computing and consumes considerable amount of electricity. Because of energy-hungry winner-takes-all type of competition, PoW method is expensive and environmentally unfriendly.
In contrast to the Proof-of-Work method, with Proof-of-Stake, miners don’t need to use powerful computing or solve any puzzles in order to verify cryptocurrency transactions. Instead of calculating hashes, miners need to prove how much cryptocurrency they own. Before verifying transactions with the PoS, the miner agrees to lock up a certain amount of cryptocurrency in a computer that’s called a ‘master node’ to prove that he/she has it in the first place. Mining rewards are then distributed according to how much cryptocurrency (proof of stake) one has. A PoS miner can create multiple master nodes with large amounts of locked cryptocurrency and earn more by using this tactic. Because the PoS requires insignificant computing power, there are significant advantages of PoS over PoW that include security, reduced risk of centralization and energy efficiency.
