monKeymiles: Earn cryptomonKeys NFTs by playing Upland

cryptomonKeys is about making free NFT distribution fun, as a community and by connecting with other NFT/blockchain projects. Already several weeks ago, we started to reward Upland players with cryptomonKeys NFTs for visiting specific properties, similar to monKeymining. This has been in a beta stage in collaboration with the MetaForce comics project, initiated by Recourier. After positive feedback we’re now rebranding this to monKeymiles and will regularly drop cryptomonKeys NFTs to players who visit cryptomonKeys Upland properties.

Getting Started

  • If you are new to this, sign up for Upland here
  • Since Upland is not on the WAX blockchain, it is essential that you fill out this form once so we know where to send your rewards
  • Make sure to join our Discord (channel #monkeymiles) for discussion with other players and support, and to not miss updates!
  • Now, simply visit one of the properties listed on this website in the game with your explorer. The more often you visit any of those, the higher your chance on cryptomonKeys NFT drops, which will be sent out roughly once a week.

Cycle Summary

crytptomonKeys sent out for mining: 819
cryptomonKeys sent out for staking: 300
TOTAL sent: 1119 cryptomonKeys

Note: Generally more cryptomonKeys were sent out to miners than to stakers, simply because we have way more miners than qualifying stakers. Rewards generally while be reduced over time, the reason simply being the rapid increase of participating users competing for relatively rare cryptomonKeys assets. We simply can’t distribute the majority of cryptomonKeys through Alien Worlds. We instead aim to reward specifically loyal miners and stakers with exclusive NFTs in the future. All data from cycle 1 on will be taken into account for those.

Since we started in January, a total of 29116 cryptomonKeys sent out for monKeymining and staking:
