In order to unlock the play-to-earn features of the game, you will need to link your crypto wallet and hold a Benji Bananas NFT pass. The NFT passes are available on OpenSea, Rarible, LooksRare, and Coinbase. The floor price currently sits at around 0.1 ETH but the supply is extremely limited, so expect some price volatility leading up to the event.

In order to be eligible, you will also need to pass a KYC process via BlockPass and link your Google Play or Apple ID to your account via their website. KYC is not something we like in the space, but this is a safeguard to avoid the event and rewards being cannibalized by fake accounts. In order to make sure to be eligible, follow the step-by-step guide published by Animoca Brands on their Medium.

Benji Bananas Member Pass

Holding PRIMATE tokens or multiple passes in your wallet will grant you more rewards, following the rules described below. 5 passes per wallet is the limit and holding additional passes won’t increase your earnings.

  • 1x Benji Bananas Pass and at least 5,000 $PRIMATE – 1.1x multiplier on $PRIMATE rewards earned during the event phase
  • 3x Benji Bananas Passes and at least 10,000 $PRIMATE – 1.2x multiplier on $PRIMATE rewards earned during the event phase
  • 5x Benji Bananas Passes and at least 20,000 $PRIMATE – 1.5x multiplier on $PRIMATE rewards earned during the event phase

For this second season, the rewards will be distributed depending on your in-game performance. Below are the factors taken into account in order to distribute rewards amongst the participants.

  • Average Bananas / Game (40%) — the average number of bananas collected per game during the event phase
  • Average Distance / Game (40%) — the average distance achieved per game during the event phase
  • World High Score (10%) — the highest world you achieved in a single game during the event phase
  • Distance High Score (10%) — the furthest distance you achieved in a single game during the event phase

There are currently 2,800 NFT pass holders and with a total prize pool of $360,000, on average, each participant could earn around $128 (given the current price of the PRIMATE coin). With the NFT passes costing around 0.1 ETH. That won’t guarantee insane gains, but for skilled players, it could be an interesting investment. We also expect future reward seasons available to pass holders.

The game itself is fun to play, so if you are curious, head over to the Google Play Store or the Apple App Store to download it and try for yourself.
