Roblox And Robux: 9 Things That Every Gamer Should Know
Well, some people like to play video games, and then there are those who love to make these games. But, seldom do we see developers who love to play their own creations. The reason why there are so few creators as compared to the players is the lack of technical know-how. To put this into perspective, just think of how many gamers do you come across who know how to code. Probably, less than five in a hundred. But, that’s not it.
Indeed some platforms allow gamers to create and customize their own game. And they don’t truly need to know how to code. In other words, people can make their own games and play them, without knowing any computing language. Even more surprising is the fact that creators can also make a real-life career out of it.
Let’s learn how.
So, how do you create games without coding?
You might have heard about Minecraft and Fortnite. Both of these are actually platforms that allow the users to create simple and intuitive games with little or no knowledge of coding, whatsoever. However, there’s one rather simpler and easy-to-use platform that not many people know about- Roblox.
Roblox is an easy-to-use gaming system that allows users to create, customize, and design their own games. Millions of users play these games every month, developed by untrained developers. On top of it, Roblox uses its own digital currency known as Robux which can be used for making in-game purchases.
It’s quite amazing. Isn’t it?
By now, you must have all sorts of questions like- what is Roblox really? How to get Robux for free? Or, how can you make a career out of it?
So, here’s the thing- if you’re keen about entering the Roblox universe, then there are certain key features that you should know.
Thankfully, here is a list of 9 things that every Roblox user must know.
Roblox is a Virtual Sandbox
For those of you who are not familiar with what a sandbox is; in computing, a sandbox is referred to as a system where untested codes or programs are run. Precisely, the issues and bugs in any coding need to be removed for improving the user experience. But, as already said, the sandbox allows the users to run and test their creations securely without having to go through the debugging process. And thus, bypass the testing procedure.
You might be surprised to know that the Roblox online gaming platform is one of a kind. It was first created back in 2004 by two Lua developers named David Baszucki and Erik Cassel. But it wasn’t until 2006 that they officially introduced the platform to the general public.
Ever since the platform went online, it has become a huge hit. According to its creators, the platform receives roughly 100 million users every month. The users can create new games using simple drag and drop features, enter popular games with game passes, and even interact with other users. And all of that is possible without any formal education or training in coding languages.
Robux is the Virtual Currency used in Roblox
Whether you play games on mobile or you play it online on your computer, you would already be familiar with the in-game purchases. Typically, every game lets its users buy credits or tokens within the game and use them for buying stuff. Users can buy all sorts of things such as special powers, gadgets, and apparel, and even special characters within the game.
Quite similarly, Roblox also has its own currency for users who wish to make in-game purchases. As already mentioned, Robux is the online credit system for Roblox games. Robux can, however, be used for more than just making the in-game purchases.
For example, users can use their Robux for creating new games, setting up game passes, and even entering into a game. Especially premium games such as, “Work at a Pizza Place” (the game has been rated one of the most popular ones on Roblox) requires its users to spend Robux for playing.
The Quickest Way to earn Robux is by Paying for them
A lot of Roblox users often think of ways they could earn Robux. Although winning games and gaining ranks in the weekly and monthly charts helps earn the Robux for free, these are still not enough. Think of it this way, you can actually win around 1000 or 2000 Robux in any game, but you’ll need to spend much more than that to enter a winning match.
Notably, the quickest possible way to earn Robux is by paying for them. Roughly, 100 Robux can cost you 0.33 USD. Or, in other words, you can buy about 10,000 Robux for just about 33 USD.
You can simply add up your card or make an online transaction using your banking credentials. The process is completely simple and secure. So, you don’t need to worry about losing your money or being a victim of online phishing scams.
You can Earn Robux through DevEx Programs
While buying Robux might be the quickest way, it is certainly not the only one. Perhaps, surprising is the fact that three are plenty of ways that users can earn Robux. So, if you’re wondering how to get Robux for free, here is your answer – you can get it through the Developer Exchange program.
Well, to start it off you’ll need to apply for the DevEx program. And once you’re enrolled, you can create GFX for other creators, sell your music on Roblox, design custom demands for contractual price. Or most interestingly, you can create a good game with chances of gaining popularity, and distribute game passes.
Whenever a player enters your game, they’ll need to buy a game pass. Now, of course, the game passes are bought using Robux, so you can sell them off and earn some legitimate Robux for free
There are other ways to get Robux for free
Since we’ve been talking a lot about how to get Robux for free, you’ll be surprised to know there are plenty of other ways too. And notably, many of them are free and legitimate. You already know, by now, how creating new games can earn you Robux. But you might not be aware of the fact that creating a game also requires you to spend some.
However, if you could start sharing links, get others to join Roblox, and make a purchase, you can get Robux absolutely free. Note that you shouldn’t be sharing the link of the landing page but rather a special link generated by the system when you click on the share icon. The special link lets the system recognize your referrals and differentiate them from others, so you could get the rewards you need.
Likewise, you can also enroll in the affiliate program. It is quite similar to sharing products and in-game purchases. But, instead of sharing the product links, you share the game with other users. The more new users join through your referral, the merrier.
Promo Codes can also be used to Redeem Free Items
Roblox just never ceases to surprise its users. While the users get Robux for free by some cool tricks, they can also get some heavy discounts on their purchases. The Roblox system gives away hundreds of promo codes every month. These promo codes can be used for in-game purchases such as gifts, costumes, and fashion items.
Every user desires to make their character or avatar look different and stand out from the rest. But, not every user can spend Robux. Thankfully, with the help of promo codes, you can easily buy them but at a much cheaper price.
There are plenty of resources online that can help you find these promo codes. Head over to the official Roblox website, visit the code redemption page, log in to your ID, enter the code, and voila! You have activated and redeemed some cool merchs, just like that.
You can exchange Robux for Real Money
By far, you’ve got to know most of the things about Roblox and how you can get Robux for free, but you still haven’t got an answer to how you can make a career out of this. Well, this section will help you understand just that.
Surprisingly, you can actually exchange your Robux for real money. This feature has been recently added by the developers of the platform. However, it is not absolutely new to the users of the platform. For example, there’s this young boy who has made hundreds of thousands of dollars by just making and playing games on Roblox. And he was reported as one of the youngest Roblox users to have earned money through it.
You can do it too! All you need to do is earn some Robux, and exchange it for real mint money, quite similar to how you exchange cryptocurrencies. But, there’s one difference- the value for Robux does not change as it does for other forms of currencies. Notably, you’ll have to earn plenty of units to get some handsome money in your pockets.
Roblox was originally Designed for Kids
Now, not many of the Roblox users are really aware of this fact. When the platform was originally developed, the target audience was kids. This is because the kids lack the competence to accomplish heavy coding. Therefore, the platform was kept as simple as possible. Also, for this reason, features like drag and drop were actually introduced into any gaming platform for the first time.
That being said, currently, a majority of the users of this gaming platform include teens and young adults, between the age of 15 to 40. There are some features, as the users claim, which are not-so-suitable for kids. Perhaps, this is one of the reasons why many parents do not let their kids use this platform.
At the same time, kids also make up for a reasonable portion of the active users on the platform. It all boils down to individual choices and preferences. The features which are not so child friendly can be monitored and if needed can also be secured away from their reach.
Beware of Spammy Robux Generators
It won’t be surprising to know that you are already enticed to use the platform. It could be just for the sake of having fun or it could be for earning some free Robux. Now, of course, when it comes to earning free Robux, you may actually end up using some spammy tricks.
We must warn you!
You should try to avoid spammy Robux generators at all costs. Not because these generators can steal your personal information, but it could also lead to penalties within the platform. Using a Robux generator can cost you your Roblox account, further to which you’ll never be able to use the same account.
Of course, this means you’ll also lose any or all the progress that you’d have made. Plus, you’ll also lose any chances of exchanging your existing Robux for real mint. It’s pretty disheartening.
So, what are you waiting for?
Visit the official Roblox website, create your account, and start playing some cool games. And who knows in a couple of weeks you’ll be minting some real cash out of it.
