Chumbi Valley is the next big iteration in the play-to-earn (P2E) blockchain gaming market, as it provides a sense of familiarization and nostalgia from the much-loved Pokemon and Zelda era but with its own unique game mechanics and adorable nonfungible token (NFT) characters. Its biggest strength of all, however, may be the surprisingly large community it has built, and well before anything has even been released to the public.
Why is there so much hype for Chumbi Valley?
Currently, Chumbi Valley boasts over 250,000 Discord members and 210,000 Twitter followers, and has needed to set up a second Telegram channel to manage the influx of people wanting to learn more about the project. Numbers like these are reserved for the established platforms of the gaming world — think Axie Infinity — though Chumbi Valley, which hasn’t launched and is less than six months from its conception, is breaking this pattern.
Nothing underscores this further than the applications for the upcoming seed Chumbi NFT sale. With 4,000 spaces available, Chumbi Valley had 200,000 applications for these coveted positions in a raffle hosted by GiveLab. To put this in context, this is the largest raffle GiveLab has ever hosted, requiring an increase in server resources as well as a custom data export to manage the event successfully.
Things to look forward to

Chumbi token launch
Chumbi Valley will be launching its primary token, CHMB, on PancakeSwap and a soon-to-be-announced centralized exchange. CHMB will be deeply tied into the game’s ecosystem, being the main in-game and marketplace currency. It will eventually become deflationary via the Chumbi decentralized autonomous organization treasury buy-and-burn action. Players/holders will also be incentivized to hold CHMB via staking rewards, driving natural price growth.
Important note: CHMB has not been launched yet, so please be careful of fakes.
Let’s take a deeper dive into Chumbi Valley to get an understanding of what players can expect, not just from gameplay but from the addition of P2E and NFT ownership.
What is Chumbi Valley?
Chumbi Valley is a role-playing blockchain game being built on the Binance Smart Chain and Polygon networks. The game will be playable on PC, Mac and Android, as well as iOS in the future. Players will be able to care for creatures called Chumbi, explore the Valley landscape to find rare NFT items, start a farm, battle other Chumbi, and more.
What are Chumbi?
Chumbi are lovable NFT creatures that inhabit a lush, mysterious forest valley. They have a special connection to the forest and use spells to conserve and protect it. Players will be paired with an Ancestor Chumbi to embark on a mystical adventure. Ancestor Chumbi can help the player with fundamental tasks, but cannot be traded.
What’s the Chumbi Valley gameplay like?
The immersive nature of Chumbi Valley will bring to the fore feelings from a gaming past, with engaging visuals and a world set in a magical forest with endless possibilities. Your Chumbi will be loved and cared for by you to grow and prosper.
Players can be rewarded with Chumbi Valley’s primary and secondary tokens, CHMB and LSTS. They can be earned through farming, exploring, crafting, breeding and battling. As your Chumbi’s abilities increase, so, too, do the rewards offered.
When is the game launch date?
The game is still in its development phase. The launch is planned for mid-2022. Seed Chumbi holders will be the first to experience the gameplay with special access to the beta version of the product as early as Q1. December will be a big month for Chumbi Valley, with the planned launch of the CHMB token and the sale of the limited seed Chumbi NFTs.
Final take on Chumbi Valley
Chumbi Valley has the potential to be the biggest game release for 2022. However, it also has the scope to be much more than just a game title. It is one of the most exciting and anticipated projects being developed. Its community engagement backs this up along with a string of high-quality venture capitalists being led by Everse Capital, giving validity to an already exciting endeavor.
