Tapinator Launches Crypto Themed Mobile Game Exclusively on iOS

Tech Industry Mints Its First Crypto Trillionaire 

 

NEW YORK (February 12, 2019) Tapinator, Inc. (OTCQB: TAPM), a publisher of category leading apps for mobile platforms, today announced the January 31, 2019 global release of Crypto Trillionaire exclusively on Apple’s iOS platform.   In order to bring this unique, best-in-class idle tapper game to mobile players worldwide, Tapinator has joined forces with the game’s developer, Robot Cake Games of Hannover, Germany.

 

Following its initial global launch on iOS, Crypto Trillionaire was featured by Apple as a “New Game We Love,” in 152 countries, including the United States. To-date, Crypto Trillionaire has achieved the following iOS metrics:

 

– Nearly 250,000 player downloads

– Excellent rating of 4.7 (out of 5.0) stars, based on over 4,000 player reviews

– Reached #3 Top Strategy Games in the United States

– Reached #89 Top Grossing for Strategy Games in the United State

– Achieved #1 organic search result for the term “Crypto” within the App Store

 

Tapinator’s CEO, Ilya Nikolayev, commented on the games release, “We achieved a very successful initial global launch with Crypto Trillionaire on iOS and we plan to invest significantly in future product updates and marketing with the intention of making Crypto Trillionaire a true category leader within the idle tapper genre across all major mobile platforms. The player response to the game has been fantastic and we are seeing solid metrics for both retention and ABPDAU (average bookings per daily active user). The idle tapper category has shown to support top grossing games with multi-year lifespans. We look forward to game enhancements that we expect will continue to improve player engagement and lifetime value, thereby allowing us to scale up our user acquisition budget. While it is still extremely early in the game’s lifecycle, based on what we have seen thus far, we believe Crypto Trillionaire will have a material positive impact on our 2019 bookings results.”

 

Crypto Trillionaire is the first of several planned major releases for Tapinator’s Category-Leading Games & Apps business for 2019. Future releases will be announced in the coming months.
