Other functions

Deposit and Withdrawal: There are three crypto tokens used in the game. 

CBX: This is the native token of the game economy and runs on the Ethereum Blockchain. You can deposit and withdraw CBX using the ERC – 20 network. 

TRX: This used to be the old in-game currency that is under migration to CBX. You might still come across TRX markets in the exchange, this is to provide a way around the heavy gas fees on the ETH blockchain. 

USDT: This acts as a bridge between TRX and CBX. You can deposit  TRX in your game wallet and trade it for CBX in the exchange. 

CBX will soon be on ETH side chains to avoid high gas fees, post that both TRX and USDT markets will be phased out. 

As the game expands, more flows will be enabled. There’s a lot of exciting stuff ahead in the world of CropBytes.
