You can start for free by earning this amount on the offerwalls or by reading a small guide. You will be granted 0.02 CGM (in USD : 0,00222082 $) just by reading a 5 minute guide with the essentials of the game.

Balances


There are two balances in game : withdrawable USD$ and purchase balance USD$ . Withdrawable can be withdrawn while purchase can be used only for purchases .
All deposits are added as purchase balance while all sold CGM tokens are converted to withdrawable USD.


Free CGM:


Base reward : 0.0001 CGM
Timer: 15 minutes

The website allows you to claim free CGM, the reward depends on the amount of cities . Each city increases the amount by 0.0001 CGM .

Cities :

Base cost : 0.01 CGM
Function : Host Infrastructure


Once you register your account you should start by making as many cities as possible. These are essential for your growth. Cities cost start from 0.01 CGM and double each time one is built.

Building more cities will have a negative impact on the commerce income, so it is important to build more infrastructure in new cities.

Infrastructure:

Base cost: 0.00001 CGM
Function: Increase population and building capacity.
Base increase of tax revenue : 0.00001 CGM per level (further increased by commercial improvements)

Infrastructure also defends against small military forces attacking your nation. This simulates an environment where a small army tries to invade a large nation which happens to be uprotected at that time. Due to logistics and sheer size a nation can defend even without military against a small army.


Buildings:

Base cost: 0.01-10 CGM + some resources
Function: Increase production of resources and tax revenue.


Buildings will further increase your output, they are especially useful in a combination with a government form and high infrastructure levels.
Destroying buildings does not return any cash or resources.

Raw Resources:


Cost : 0.01 CGM + some resources each building
Function : produce raw materials

Coal and Iron mines generate coal and iron which are used to manufacture steel .
Lead mines generate lead which is used to manufacture munitions.
Bauxite mines generate bauxite which is used to manufacture aluminum.
Oil wells generate oil which is used to manufacture gasoline.

Raw materials can be manufactured into special materials used by military or sold at the market. All production is credited once a day.

Manufactured Resources:


Cost: 0.10 CGM + some resources each building
Function : produce resources for military use

Steel is used to build tanks and navy.
Munitions are used in battles by all military units and gasoline by all but soldiers.
Aluminum is used to build jets.
Munitions are used in battles by all military units.
Gasoline is used by all military units except soldiers.
All production is credited once a day.

Military goods can be used by your military or sold at the market.

Commerce:

Cost:
Super markets : 0.01 CGM
Shopping malls : 0.1 CGM
Trade centers : 1 CGM
Banks : 10 CGM
All buildings require some resources in addition to the CGM cost .
Function : Increase commercial output of cities up to 1.000%

Income rate increase by commercial building:

Super markets 1%
Shopping malls 10%
Trade centers 100%
Banks 1.000%

Commercial buildings increase your nations output in taxes(Income rate %), basically generating more wealth and thus more USDT.
Super markets, shopping malls, trade centers and banks increase your base commerce income up to 1.000% per city (if you build in a city a bank building any other commerce buildings would not affect the income from taxes in that city) .

If the output of a city is 100% you can build all commercial buildings. If it is 100+1, you can build all but a bank (because doing so would exceed the maximum of 1000% in that city). If it is 900+1 you cant build a bank or a trading center as well. At 990% you can only build super markets or malls. And lastly at 999% you can build only a super marker.
The total commercial output of your entire nation cant exceed 1.000% * number of cities.

Military :


Cost :
Soldiers: 0.00001 CGM
Tanks: 0.0001 CGM and 1 steel
Jets: 0.001 CGM and 1 aluminum
Navy: 0.01 CGM and 10 steel

Function : React in defensive and offensive conflicts .

All units require a base first to be produced. Once you acquire a base you may then start producing military units. Units are able to react in defensive battles automatically(provided that you have the military materials needed) while to take an agressive action you must be at war with a nation and select your action.

Cost:
Base for soldiers : 0.01 CGM
Base for tanks : 0.1 CGM
Base for jets : 1 CGM
Base for navy : 10 CGM

Function : allows output of military units

The possible actions during a war are :
GVG (ground vs ground)
AVG (air strike ground forces with air forces)
AVA (attack enemy jets with your own)
AVN (attack enemy navy with jets)
NVN (attack enemy navy with your own navy)
Propose peace

For a succesful attack or defense you need more military units and military equipment for your army. If there arent enough resources for your army only a part of it will participate in a battle (depending on how many resources you have at that time)
Defeating an enemy navy with your own will disable their ability to trade,deposit or withdraw untill they manage to defeat yours (either with air forces or with their own navy).

To fight in a battle your units need military goods, if there are not enough to operate your units they will be lost in a defensive battle without fighting back. This means that the enemy will be able to bomb your air force if it does not have enough military goods, your soldiers will surrender and tanks will be taken by the enemy.

In order to stop the war either up to 4 days must pass or both sides must agree to peace.

There must be a ratio of 10 soldiers per tank.
Battle requirements per unit:

Soldiers : 0 gas and 1 munitions
Tanks : 1 gas and 2 munitions
Air : 2 gas and 3 munitions
Navy : 3 gas and 4 munitions

Ground units may loot CGM from the enemy . The loot is equal to tanks units monetary value and for soldiers it is tenfold. For instance soldiers each cost 0.0001 CGM and they will loot ten times that each. So 1.000 soldiers will loot 0.1 CGM .


Military ratio.
There is a rule which forbids building more soldiers than 10% your current population .
Maximum tanks you can create are soldiers/10
Maximum fighting jets are tanks/10
And for navy its tanks/10

Marketplace :

Function : trade resources to alleviate shortages or export for gain, or else trade like on stock market .

The marketplace allows nations to buy or sell resources on the market but keep in mind that prices are dependent on other players actions, they may increase or decrease rapidly.

Force :

Loot :


Soldiers are the best unit to loot enemies, as long as each soldier is equiped with one munition they will fight in offensive or defensive battles. During succesful offensive battles all the remaining soldiers will return home with looted CGM provided that the enemy had a positive balance.
Resources cant be looted therefore storing resources is a good way to protect your net worth.

Government :

GDP :

GDP affects Per capita income.
To increase GDP spend money on your nation.

Inflation :


Inflation is a parameter that sets prices in a nation. Expences will rise/fall along with inflation .
Nations with very low inflation have to pay very low wages to their citizens, this means they can produce very cheap resources and military.
To increase inflation increase your GDP and/or decrease your population.
To decrease inflation reduce the wealth of your population (Per capita income).


CB(casus belli) :


"A casus belli is an act or an event that either provokes or is used to justify a war. A casus belli involves direct offenses or threats against the nation declaring the war, whereas a casus foederis involves offenses or threats against its ally—usually one bound by a mutual defense pact. Wikipedia"
In BTCnations CB is an indicator of a nations general behavior, declaring a lot of offensive wars , cancelling or not honoring agreements and etc will increase CB .
CB can be decreased by paying a fee to the UBTCN .
High CB penalties :
Others can declare war without gaining CB .
The UBTCN will not like you.
CB gain per action :
Declare war on a nation with CB less than half of yours = + 2 CB
Declare war on a nation with double the CB than yours = 0 CB
Declare war on a nation with CB more than half of yours and less than double of yours = + 1 CB
Dishonoring trade pacts with other players = 1 CB
