You can earn more COIN by staying in the same spot!
This is called the Home Base feature, and a Home Base is created after Geomining the same tile three times in a row.
This tile will be the center of your new Home Base. The 8 surrounding tiles will become the plot of land that is your Home Base. This will be shown in a blue outline on your screen. For iOS users, an icon will appear to also indicate your Home Base is active.
What is the boost?
When you are Geomining within the tiles of your Home Base you will receive at least 10% more Geomining rewards!
Better than that, for each consecutive hour you are there, you will earn +10% more! (This caps at up to 100%, or 10 hours).
So if you do not travel very much or you work from home, you can still maximize your COIN earnings.
Does it ever reset?
While the reset interval is subject to change, Home Base will currently reset every 24 hours.
If a Geomine occurs outside of your Home Base, the bonus resets.
How do I turn Home Base off?
If you decide you want to leave your Home Base, turn off Auto Collect and turn it back on when you are outside of your Home Base blue square. Keep in mind your bonus will reset since you are leaving your Home Base.
Can I make sure I don't accidentally lose Home Base?
The Auto Collect button needs to be activated inside this Home Base in order to suppress any Geomines that may happen outside the base (due to GPS drift). This will prevent you from losing your bonus if you happen to move out of your blue square.
