Go from rags to riches as you upgrade and unlock new items and time travel to the distant past and the far future, all without leaving your comfy chair!

By tapping the screen you can mine virtual bitcoins to slowly increase your wealth. Spend your earnings on fancy things like entertainment centers and priceless works of art, or upgrade your mining equipment to earn more with each tap. If you're smart, you'll use some of those bitcoins to invest in new technologies that help you earn even when you're not playing! Just when you think you've seen it all, Bitcoin Billionaire sends you hurtling through time and space. Travel to new eras where you'll earn all new upgrades, unlock extra achievements, and experience the thrills of bitcoin mining from a whole new perspective. If you thought tapping was fun in a modern-day office chair, just wait 'til you park your posterior in a finely crafted stone seat from prehistoric times! Features: -Upgrade investments to earn bitcoins while offline. -Grab bonuses from hovering delivery drones. -Customize your character to mine in style. -Free holiday updates and extras. -Adopt a kitty! Or a robot! Or a T-Rex! Or something else! Bitcoin Billionaire is an idle mining game that's fun for everyone. Seriously, everyone can play it, you don't have to know anything about bitcoins or mining. If you can tap, you can earn, and if you can earn, you can upgrade all of the things. Now quick, sit down and start tapping! Note: This game is for entertainment purposes only. You do not mine real bitcoins. You will, however, feel like a billionaire when you finally unlock those expensive upgrades.
