cryptomonKeys Update #18: monKeymining - Earn NFTs by Playing Alien Worlds (now on Binance!)

By banano | Banano | 7 Apr 2021

BANANO is a DAG-based cryptocurrency with easy-to-use apps, distributed entirely for free through airdrops, faucets, and games. All happening in a fun, community-driven, meme-rich, and educational atmosphere. The BANANO community project cryptomonKeys just started few months ago with free distribution of BANANO-themed NFTs/digital trading cards and is getting lots of positive vibes from a rapidly growing community.

In January 2021, we announced monKeymining: Earn cryptomonKeys NFTs by playing the game AlienWorlds! This has led to lots of ongoing attention and excitement and loads of new users joining the community and we meanwhile sent over 17k cryptomonKeys NFTs to miners and stakers! Here’s an update including the cycle 8 mining and staking rewards that were sent out today!

Also, congrats to the Alien Worlds Team for getting their in-game Token TLM to Binance exhange (source)! Related cryptomonKeys Giveaway here!


monKeymining and monKeystaking Update

If this is new to you: You can mine cryptomonKeys NFTs by playing the brand new free-to-play/play-to-earn NFT-based game Alien Worlds. You earn by mining or by staking, just by playing the game, on top of the regular in-game rewards!

What is Alien Worlds and what does it have to do with cryptomonKeys?

The Alien Worlds Team is building an awesome and innovative NFT-based gaming ecosphere with lots of future possibilities including community governance and implementation of third party NFT projects. The game is currently in open beta and mining is live as its first in-game feature just since a few weeks. Mining doesn’t require a powerful computer, and can be done on a smartphone. It only needs time to play. You currently receive Trilium (TLM, the in-game cryptocurrency) and AlienWorld NFTs for mining in Alien Worlds.

The cool thing in particular is that the Alien Worlds Team is building a DeFi-NFT-focused metaverse that allows other projects to integrate their NFTs into the game. The cryptomonKeys team decided to engage early on with this new ecosphere and distributes cryptomonKeys NFTs to players mining on lands owned by the cryptomonKeys project. And, on top of regular in-game Trillium and Alien Worlds NFT rewards: monKeymining is here!

monKeymining — A Brief Summary

Find always updated detailed information and help getting started here.

You can earn cryptomonKeys NFTs by playing the brand new free-to-play/play-to-earn NFT-based game Alien Worlds. You currently can earn cryptomonKeys NFTs by mining or by staking, just by playing the game, on top of the regular in-game rewards!

Get cryptomonKeys bonus rewards on top of regular in-game rewards by mining on any of the lands specified below, or by staking TLM to Planet Neri. Rewards will be sent out regularly, roughly every 1–2 weeks. Summary graphic below, details and help getting started, with lots of details and helpful links can be found here.


We also plan to eventually send continuous supporters exclusive bonus NFTs, i.e. to users who have constantly ranked well in monKeymining and Neri staking cycles.

  • If you have any questions, find all details here, and join our discord and ask in the channel #monkeymining for help. Lots of users are discussing there all the time.


monKeymining and monKeystaking Rewards Details

Note: The following details are unchanged from last cycle with the only exception that the mining threshold for guaranteed cryptomonKeys NFTs within one cycle has been increased from 199 to 250 TLM. They might be further adjusted/updated over time whenever needed. The simple reason is that we have more and more players joining, and we aim to use Alien Worlds as one way to earn cryptomonKeys, but we won’t distribute the majority of all cryptomonKeys through this game. Updates and current status can always be found at

  • We will pull mining data from the blockchain and take snapshots of stakers to Neri every 1–2 weeks. The more you mine during any cycle or stake at the time of snapshot, the higher your chances on cryptomonKeys NFTs, and the higher your chances on more rare cryptomoneys NFTs. Rewards will then be sent out shortly after.
  • Everyone who mines at least 250 TLM on one of the cryptomonKeys lands within each cycle will get guaranteed cryptomonKeys NFT rewards. We will distribute additional NFTs randomly between all miners, so even if you don’t mine 250 TLM within a cycle you still have the chance on NFT rewards.
  • The Top 199 users staking TLM to Neri (ranking here) at the time of snapshot will get guaranteed cryptomonKeys rewards. We will distribute additional NFTs randomly between all Top 500 stakers, so even if you don’t stake enough to ran in the Top 199 you still have the chance on NFT rewards.
  • Mining rewards and staking rewards will be sent out every 1–2 weeks after a monKeymining cycle has ended. Once there’s a feature for random customized in-game NFT drops this will likely change and be automized.

Rewards were sent out for all mining events happening on specified cryptomonKeys lands from March 23, 2021 (19:19 UTC) to April 5, 2021 (19:19 UTC). A total of 4909 different users (last cycle: 3813) mined a total of 725k TLM (last cycle: 1.03M TLM) during this timeframe. 1242 users mined at least 199 TLM (which was the threshold for guaranteed mining rewards for this cycle).

Cycle Summary

crytptomonKeys sent out for mining: 1662
cryptomonKeys sent out for staking: 420
TOTAL sent: 2082 cryptomonKeys

Note: Generally more cryptomonKeys were sent out to miners than to stakers, simply because we have way more miners than qualifying stakers. As inititally announced the rewards are generally being reduced over time, the reason simply being rapid increase of participating users competing for relatively rare cryptomonKeys assets. We simply can’t distribute the majority of cryptomonKeys through Alien Worlds. As mentioned above, 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 few weeks ago, a total of 17843 cryptomonKeys sent out for monKeymining and staking:
