cryptomonKeys are freely distributed, community-driven, meme-rich digital trading cards, minted as Non-Fungible Tokens (NFT) on the WAX blockchain[1][2][3]. The project was launched on September 19, 2021 by the co-founders SoggyApplePie and bantano, both are core team members of the cryptocurrency project Banano. Another member, Vyryn, joined the core team as coder-in-chief. According to the creators, the vision behind the project is to create a collectible digital trading card series that they themselves would like to collect. The focus of the CryptomonKeys project is to build a fun community, within an educational and welcoming atmosphere.[4]

There is a total of 10119 packs that cointain 20238 cryptomonKeys. The monKeypacks distribution will be freely distributed just like the current cryptomonKey cards.

Ways to acquire[]

monKeyfarm[]

The monKeyfarm concept was originally announced on 21 October 2020.[7] The basic idea is that holders of cryptomonKeys cards have a chance to receive new card drops automatically for each new card received, in perpetuity. The chances to receive monKeydrops will be higher for the ‘Legacy’ Generation 1 cards 1-19. Chances will also be higher when holders possess a bigger variety of different cards, and for holders of rarer cards. On average, 19% of all new cards will be distributed this way to reward early adopters and avid collectors. CryptomonKeys core team members are excluded from receiving monKeyfarm drops. Each monKeyfarm event is documented.[8]

monKeymining[]

CryptomonKeys NFTs may be earned by playing the blockchain game, AlienWorlds.[9]

monKeymiles[]

The monKeymiles initiative lets you earn CryptomonKeys by visiting CryptomonKey properties in the NFT game Upland.[10] The more visits you have to CryptomonKeys properties in Upland, the bigger your chance is of getting a CryptoMonkey in the next distribution.
