MonkeyBall Play-to-Earn NFT Game Set to Launch on Solana Blockchain

MonkeyBall, the next-gen esports metaverse that enables players to create, play, compete and earn, is ready for kickoff. Based on the Solana blockchain, the play-to-earn soccer game combines high-production values, multiplayer gaming, NFTs, and decentralised finance.

Monkeys are the teams’ players, introduced by NFT assets owned by game players. The Monkeys serve as an income generator, allowing a player to earn MonkeyBucks ($MBS) by winning matches.

The Three Modes of MonkeyBall

  • Player vs Environment: This is a training mode to increase your Monkey’s overall abilities and allow you to practise and develop your in-game Monkey’s soccer skills.
  • Player vs Player: This mode is the classic game where each player controls the entire team of soccer monkeys.
  • Team vs Team: In this mode, each team is being played and controlled by multiple players at a time.

MonkeyBall will do an NFT drop (of the game’s Monkeys) in December, with the in-game launch set for release in the first quarter of 2022. The IDO is currently open. Check the MonkeyBall website for more information.

MonkeyBucks ($MBS) is the in-game currency powering the game economy. Players can earn MBS by interacting in the game: completing missions, winning matches, watching games as spectators, or hosting games in their stadiums. You can also spend MBS to breed new Monkeys and buy consumable game items (NFTs) in the game’s store.


There is major hype surrounding the pre-release of this game, as you can see by the sharp increase in the price of the StarLaunch token, $STARS. Starlaunch is the launchpad for MonkeyBall.

As the NFT space continues to grow, and excessively high fees continue to plague the Ethereum network, we are increasingly seeing Solana challenge Ethereum for NFT project launches.
