Benji the monkey and his friends leap from vine to vine through the jungle collecting bananas to get upgrades, specials and power-ups in an exciting action adventure mobile game.
With Benji Bananas, players swing Benji from vine to vine through the jungle while collecting fruits and other items to unlock upgrades in a physics-based action platformer/runner. In addition to cosmetic upgrades, play upgrades include abilities and power-ups, including jetpacks, speed boosts, and eagle rides. Since its release in 2013, Benji Bananas has amassed over 50 million downloads across Apple App Store and Google Play Store as a casual and accessible free-to-play arcade title.
The $PRIMATE token was introduced to the Benji Bananas mobile game after becoming a part of Animoca Brands' ecosystem. This shifted the trajectory of the game's future development into the play-and-earn model. On average, over 70,000 unique players are active on Benji Bananas every day. The goal of this shift into web3 gaming is to introduce an already existing playerbase into blockchain technology and allow them to use a fungible token called $PRIMATE, which rewards them for playing the game. In order to get $PRIMATE tokens, players must own a Benji Bananas Membership Pass NFT, which will allow them to play and progress through the game.
The Benji Bananas Membership Pass NFT is an ERC-1155 token on Ethereum that can only be purchased using ApeCoin. There were 5,000 1st Edition Passes created during the first sale event. A Pass will enable the owner to participate in the Benji Bananas play-to-earn ecosystem and receive any PRIMATE earned through play. Only those with a Membership Pass are able to earn PRIMATE by playing Benji Bananas and swap their tokens for $APE.
Once you have purchased a Benji Bananas Membership Pass NFT from any of the supported marketplaces, OpenSea, LooksRare, Rarible, Coinbase or X2Y2, you need to verify its ownership on the game's website. Depending on your mobile's operating system, you either download the iOS or Android version of the game and log into your your Apple / Google ID in-game then link it to your logged in account on the website to register your in-game progress. Unfortunately, you will have to perform a KYC to be eligible for any $PRIMATE rewards or participate in any campaigns.
