June 2017. Actually, we were looking for a simple tool that would allow us to mine with our sweet 1070s overnight. If you ask Google that should not be that hard .. but even with our technical background we had some problems here and there. Dissatisfied with the results, we tried to write a script that would help us automate the process.
The idea was to invest the few € in skins or games. The script quickly became the basis for a small software and basically, one thing came quickly led to another. We wanted to build a tool that makes mining with a graphics card easy and fast. We wanted to offer skins and games that interested us and we showed the tool to our friends.
When we built the first shop version in October, the concept was a bit different. You had to chose a game which was placed in a pod and then flew to your home, the stronger the graphics card, the faster the pod flew. With the first alpha tests users we met in some gaming channels, no one understood our pod story (haha) so we decided to change that to Space Coins and a more commonly understood shop/store system.
