The upcoming NFT drop for MonkeyBall will feature Gen-0 Monkeys. By breeding Gen-0 Monkeys, players can create Gen-1 Monkeys, and so forth. The objective of the game is to ensure sufficient teams and leagues to ensure matchmaking.
Notably, Monkeys will have several appearances, core game skills, perks, rarity levels, gameplay skills, and more.
Over the past few months, MonkeyBall has managed to garner a lot of attention from the wider crypto and blockchain gaming industry.
For instance, Draftkings’founders, along with Solana Capital, Republic, NFX, iAngels, and Longhash, backed MonkeyBall through a $3 million round in October 2021.
Further, the MonkeyBall team raised an undisclosed amount of funding from Alameda Research, YGG, and other noted crypto investment firms in December 2021. Incidentally, both the rounds complemented MonkeyBall’s initial DEX Offering (IDO) on Starlaunch in November 2021.
Built atop the high-throughput Solana blockchain, MonkeyBall is developed with the Unity game engine as a P2E soccer game where players manage a team of four monkeys playing against other users.
The game allows players to earn $MBS tokens for every game they win. The players can then use the $MBS tokens to purchase stadiums and attend other players’ matches.
