Kryptomon, the nonfungible token (NFT) play-to-earn (P2E) blockchain game where Pokémon meets Tamagotchi and CryptoKitties, has launched the first stage of its NFT gaming metaverse. As the first project to create a living NFT on the blockchain, players can breed, care for and train their Kryptomons — NFT creatures with unique characteristics and abilities.

Kryptomon’s official launch arrives on the heels of two successful initial NFT egg sales on Binance NFT, the NFT marketplace of the world’s largest cryptocurrency exchange. The debut sale in November 2021 resulted in 2,000 NFT eggs selling out in under a second, generating $180,000 in sales — one of the fastest sales in Binance NFT’s history. A second egg sale launched on Feb. 8, 2022, generating $237,500 in sales once again under a second for 2,500 NFT eggs sold — setting yet another benchmark for Kryptomon. 

“We are happy and proud to have such a strong community of token holders and NFT players that amazed us again in our last sale on Binance NFT that ended in just 0.16 seconds — even faster than the previous one that ended in 0.27 seconds — even though we have sold this time more NFTs in less-optimal market conditions. Our community is really one of the things that make Kryptomon such an amazing and fun project,” said Tomer Warschaier Nuni, chief media officer of Kryptomon.

Kryptomon merges the core design concepts behind Tamagotchi and Pokémon, reimagining them for the modern era of blockchain gaming and bringing players an entire gaming metaverse they can own a part of. Kryptomons are collectible virtual monsters and living NFTs with features defined by a unique, random-parameter digital genetic code. The platform conducts monthly augmented reality treasure hunts during every full moon, sending players armed with their smartphones and crypto wallets on a real-world quest for loot boxes with consumables and NFT Kryptomon eggs.

As part of the first stage’s release campaign, players receive daily loot boxes with valuable consumables that include food, bandages and training cards for their Kryptomons. The more Kryptomons that users collect, the more loot boxes they receive daily. Players use the consumables to feed and train their Kryptomons, forging stronger bonds with their living digital companions. This will benefit players in stage two with the release of a full-fledged combat system. If trainers neglect their Kryptomons, the creatures will freeze with players having to pay a fee to unfreeze and continue using them.

Starting on Feb. 15, players will be able to breed their Kryptomon NFTs and begin selling the new NFT eggs they generate on any of the seven NFT marketplaces that have partnered with Kryptomon, including Kryptomon’s official KMarket marketplace. On the same date, Kryptomon will release its P2E mechanics in the game, making it possible for players to start earning money in the form of KMON tokens and NFTs as they enjoy the game.

Kryptomon’s marketplace allows Kryptomon NFT trading, purchases and KMON token-staking to participate in NFT lotteries and generation of “candies” — in-game currency to purchase loot-boxes and items.

Kryptomon incorporates a first-of-its-kind blockchain walk-to-earn model for users to earn NFTs, KMON tokens, in-game items and new features, It integrates real-world gameplay and metaverse capabilities to create an immersive community experience through monthly treasure hunts. Alongside the treasure hunt, Kryptomon expands its lore, releasing the first issue of its comic book series titled Eva’s Journey. Each month, new issues will reveal more about the game’s backstory and characters while giving readers helpful gameplay tips.
