The Von Coin Beta Is Under Way, Expanding to Windows 10 in January

By Sam Quirke, 5 days ago
As we revealed last year, TrueAchievements has teamed up with Xbox App developer Von Bismark Labs to help them launch the Von Coin. With the Von Coin App, you can use your hard-earned achievements to earn Coins and bid on exclusive limited edition items.

The Beta for the Von Coin club has been under way since December 20th, and bidding wars have already been waged for over 60 auctions. Here's a flavour of some of the prizes that have been commissioned or auctioned so far:

Some of those prizes have already gone out to happy bidders. Winners have included Tropan, llammalrdsofsci, radnonnahs, CSGeekSquad, FreakyRO, KrakenScorch, XPC Schenckman and MCLMFMF.

The Von Coin private beta — which is exclusive to TrueAchievements members — is expanding over the next couple of months, with a Windows 10 version of the app coming out in late January. The next batch of users will be onboarded on the 18th of January so make sure you sign up before then. Your TA score only counts towards Von Coins from the day your register.

To register for the beta, and for more information, please visit www.voncoin.club or follow them on social media at @VonCoin. Von Bismark Labs are also looking to partner with streamers, artists and other influencers, so contact them for details by emailing sara@voncoin.club.

Please note that the Von Coin beta is still only available to US users for the time being.
