FUNCTIONALITY

As with many EOS-based games, one can bet with their EOS accounts without the need to create a new account. Anyone with an EOS account can play, and clients would need to have their EOS accounts ready or set up one before starting. FunCity currently has an online version only, probably preparing to roll out more options for mobile and desktop. Participants in a Funcity betting get the CITY token by playing the game, and a certain amount of tokens can be obtained for each bet. Members can also mine the CITY token, with the mining difficulty of the CITY token dependent on the release of the CITY token.

TOKEN MECHANICS
The total amount of FunCity tokens, the CITY is limited to 1 billion. 800 million for mining with the team keeping 100 million. In order to propel its value, the team will continue to burn the CITY token by buying back games. On the mining side, the player gets the CITY token by playing the game, and a certain amount of tokens can be obtained for each bet.
ISSUES
As a new game, FunCity hasn’t got a lot of security issues per our analysis. The platform hasn’t however got a mobile or desktop version, and so lovers of games on phones or PCs would be a little disappointed.
