  • What is Fishbank Alpha/Beta/Demo?
    That is the demonstration of Fishbank game functionality running on Ethereum test network called Rinkeby. That allows anyone to test Fishbank game core functions and not risk real Ether. Fishbank Demo may not represent all the functions available in the Stable release of Fishbank game. Some functions may be added to Demo later. Stable version of the game will be launched on 18th March 2018 in Ethereum mainnet (using real Ether cryptocurrency).
  • How can I receive my preordered crypto fish token?
    Please make sure you have filled in the Ethereum wallet field in Profile page of your Fishbank Cabinet account (https:\/\/in.fishbank.io) with an address of your MetaMask wallet before the date of actual Stable release launch. That’s important because crypto fish token may be minted only once. You will need a MetaMask in order to play the game, no other wallets are supported by the Fishbank game at the moment. Please start the Fishbank game using the sate MetaMask wallet that you have in your Fishbank Cabinet and you will see your fish in My Assets list.
  • Why I can’t see my crypto fish tokens in MetaMask?
    Every crypto fish token and any other Fishbank game asset is an ERC-721 token.

You can see all your crypto fish tokens on the My Assets page in Fishbank game interface.
