Forum:A NetHack Server with a twist: gems are actually valuable!

From NetHackWiki

I've spent the weekend hacking together a patch for NetHack 3.4.3 that actually puts some real-world value on the gems in the game. It attaches a "private key" to each gem, which you can then import into an RDSH wallet. Those shares can then be used as tickets into a sweepstakes I am running, or exchanged on the open market for Digitalcoin (DGC) or Bitcoin (BTC).

The process is still very manual, i.e. the private key needs to be manually imported, and the funds manually transferred. An exchange exists to trade RDSH for DGC, but it's terminal-based (much like NetHack itself).

The server is compiled with only a few other patches (menucolors, statuscolors). I would love if people could help me test the system, and help inspire me to make it more user friendly. Send me a DM on twitter @ddombrowsky if interested, or summon the mail daemon for Klintos on NAO if I happen to be playing.
