Greetings Commanders, the time has finally come to announce the highly anticipated first project launching through StarLaunch: MonkeyBall!
What is MonkeyBall?
MonkeyBall is a AAA video game being developed with the Unity game engine on the Solana blockchain. In the game, users manage a team of four monkeys that play head-to-head soccer matches against opposing players. Team’s earn tokens for victories and can collect additional rewards for buying stadiums and attending the matches of other players.
Who is Involved?
Incubated by COTI CEO Shahaf Bar-Geffen, MonkeyBall has quickly secured strong and reputable backers (not limited to): Solana Capital, CMS Holdings, Morningstar Ventures, Jump Capital and Longhash, and included angel investment from multiple founders at eToro and DraftKings including the platform’s largest shareholder, billionaire Shalom Meckenzie.
What’s the plan?
The vision is to build a Play-to-Earn metaverse that knows no boundaries, whether you’re a hardcore or casual gamer, a financial whale, or a tiny fish, you’re able to participate, enjoy, and earn in the game. Unlike other games that require players to be constantly active to earn, MonkeyBall offers ways to participate and earn for both active & passive players. Ultimately, they are building a gaming world for a diverse array of players, with the aspiration to allow the community to adopt various gameplay roles and freely run a decentralized player-owned economy.
How can I be a part of this?
As the very first IDO for StarLaunch, MonkeyBall is expected to receive a high turnout on registration. Taking into consideration the cutting edge Hydrazine Model, users will experience an equitable and fairly distributed DEX offering. IDO dates have yet to be announced publicly, however, we believe the timing couldn’t be better! To take part in the MonkeyBall IDO, users should refer to our Basic Training article, and join our Telegram live chat — These contain all information necessary in joining the ranks as Commander on the SS StarLaunch. o7!
“We, at StarLaunch, believe Play-to-Earn NFT gaming could be a major catalyst for mass adoption of blockchain technology and are truly excited to be launching the immensely talented team at MonkeyBall, who could very well spearhead this revolution.” –SS StarLaunch
MonkeyBall is a quick, turn-based, Play-to-Earn, arcade, soccer game offering a AAA-gaming experience. Matches are played between two teams, each with 4 Monkeys playing the positions of Scorer, Defender, Midfielder and Goalkeeper. With 6 rounds of play per half, the first team to 3 goals wins.
StarLaunch is a unique and dynamic incubator and launchpad, connecting promising Solana projects to early supporters and a network of key partners. The StarLaunch team operates by prioritizing its community first. Starlaunch brings thoroughly vetted projects to its community and protects IDO participants with an in-house insurance program.
