MonKeyprinter go BRRR! CryptomonKeys are Here!

CryptomonKeys are building on top of the BANANO MonKey concept, as a freely distributed, community-driven, meme-rich digital trading card series, based on NFT technology, here to disrupt the meme economy.


CryptomonKeys — Key Features

  • No sale! Free cards for grabs! CryptomonKeys are distributed for free through airdrops, giveaways, contests, and to contributors!
  • Easy to receive, send, and trade, even for NFT noobs! No worries if you’re new to this! CryptomonKeys are living on the Wax blockchain, which makes handling of NFTs extremely easy and comes with practically feeless transactions.
  • Everyone can join and even become a cryptomonKeys artist! There will be lots of meme/art contests with BANANO and NFT prizes, and winning creations will be minted (created) as cryptomonKeys NFT collectible cards.

  • Collect! cryptomonKeys through airdrops, giveaways and contests!
  • Trade! cryptomonKeys with others on secondary markets! CryptomonKeys trading is live at once the first cards are distributed!
  • Connect! CryptomonKeys is not only connecting BANANO’s meme creators and their memes with the NFT world, we also connected each card to a BANANO address (on the card back) for future cross-blockchain app implementation. For now, cryptomonKeys are available to be enjoyed as a digital collectible trading card series. However, future game implementations and/or apps are in the mix! This is just the beginning.

Who is behind cryptomonKeys?

In brief, cryptomonKeys is a community project created by two long-term BANANO supporters and highly involved community members: SoggyApplePie (BANANO Community Manager and Staff Artist) and bantano (BANANO Lead Community Developer/CMO and core team member). The first designs were created by SoggyApplePie who will also continue to design awesome monKeyfied cards, but everyone is welcome to join and contribute artwork!

What are monKeys?

Cryptocurrency wallet addresses are typically long strings of characters that can be nearly indistinguishable from each other. MonKey solves this long-standing problem through the creation of unique, monkey-shaped avatars from a hash value based on a user’s public key. These visual representations of wallet addresses serve to identify users while protecting the privacy of the account holders.


Each MonKey has a unique combination of fur and eye colour, and can have additional accessories in varying styles, such as hats, glasses, shirts, pants, mouth types, tail decorations, and more! Accessories have different rarities, and there are thousands of quintillions of possible MonKey combinations (that’s more than 10²¹). Learn more about monKeys here.
