Genopets Opens Legendary Lab

After some delay due to fallout from the collapse of FTX, Genopets launches their Legendary Lab, allowing players to craft the first Pet Augments ever! Those with the missing pages NFTs and the required number of tokens can attempt a creation at the lab, receiving one of several, random items.

The collapse of FTX caused some fallout in the blockchain space. Part of that resulted in Magic Eden needing to shut down SFT (stackable NFTs) trading on their site. But now those issues are cleared up, and Genopets opens up their Legendary Lab, the final destination for everyone who participated in their recent Treasure Hunt.

Acquired via a recent the Treasure Hunt puzzle contest, players can assemble the missing pages from a recipe book to craft a random item in the Genopets Legendary Lab. Players need all five of these pages, numbering 13 through 17. The pages are NFT and they can all be purchased on Magic Eden. Though some are rarer, and more expensive, than others.

In addition to the pages, crafting in the Legendary Lab also costs 5 GENE tokens, and 5 Genotype Crystals (all of the same type). The results are random. The best prizes are special Pet Augments. This can be attached to Pets to provide stat bonuses or special abilities. In Genopets, all legendary Augments will have a capped supply. The maximum possible supply for this legendary Ear Augment is 300, though it’s likely that fewer than that will be crafted. In fact, this particular legendary Ear Augment will never be craftable again!

At the moment, the Augments don’t do anything. But, in the upcoming combat feature of Genopets, Augments will provide Pets with stats boosts and/or new abilities.

A lesser, though also interesting prize, is the Chroma Crystals. These Crystals allow players to change the colors of their Pet. Crystals come in three variations, Adsynth, Subsynth, and Lume. Adsyneth Crystals let you change your Pet’s primary color, Subsynth Crystals affect the secondary color, and Lume crystals change the highlight color.

Move to Earn with Genopets

Genopets is a free-to-play, move-to-earn game built on the Solana blockchain. When using the Genopets app, players collect steps while walking. They convert those steps into Energy, and then use that Energy to level up their Pet or exchange for KI tokens. KI tokens are the main currency in Genopets and used to craft Crystals, upgrade Pets, and maintain Habitats.

Genopets visually change as they level up. Higher level Pets also offer a better step to Energy conversion rate. Genopets recently introduced new level-based Energy conversion system that greatly reduced the amount of Energy generated by players. Especially those with low level Genopets.

Genopets features a number of NFTs, as well as the new style ‘SFTs’ for stackable resources. The main NFTs are Genesis Genopets and Habitats. SFT Resources include Raw Crystals, Refined Crystals, Terraform Seeds, and the recently added Pet Augments. Pet Augments will be used in an upcoming, Pokemon style pet battling game.
