About the KongQuest

ABOUT THE KONGQUEST

The KongQuest is a competition for our Regional Status Class NFTs, 2000 of the rarest NFTs in the game. Winners who claim prizes receive mint passes tied to their KongQuest account which are redeemable when the KongQuest ends. The KongQuest – or KQ for short – launched on November 23rd 2021 to a small founding audience and in addition to the prizes, it’s the only way to lock in access to our Tribal Rank NFTs at a discount.


HOW IT WORKS

To participate in the KongQuest, head to the My KongQuest page and chose one (or more) of the 4 Banana Kingdom regions then select “Climb the Ranks”.
 
In each region you start as a Wastelander who’s snuck into the Kingdom, a defector of the Wasteland Kongs hoards, you arrive in search of a better future. Each region has it’s own challenges, rewards, story, and path to follow that culminates in the reaching of Apex Kong within the app. Completing all 4 KongQuests nets it’s own secret reward, a Kingdom Weapon that can only be earned in the KongQuest.
 
Kingdom weapons are weapons that can be used in any region. See “Merging Weapons From Different Regions” in the Crafting & Battling section of our whitepaper for more about Kingdom weapons.

 
 

MERIT BASED REWARDS AND PRESALE AT A DISCOUNT, IT’S WHY WE BUILT THE KONGQUEST APP

A lot of care and detail were put into the KongQuest app. From the linear storylines as you work your way through each region, to the overall layout and design. And that care was taken for 2 specific reasons. To reward early supporters of the game. And to give diehard supporters a way to contribute to the development of the project in its earliest phase. 


 

ADDITIONAL APP FEATURES

The KQ app itself is a fully contained social network where players can: Compete in the KongQuest for prizes, grab discounted mint passes (that are gated by your KQ rank), prebuild a tribe, earn from your tribal members progression in the KongQuest, stake Ape Fun Tokens, farm rewards, and get a small glimpse of the games art and lore.

 

WHEN DOES THE KONGQUEST END?

The KongQuest takes, at a minimum – for the most dedicated of questers – 4-5 months to complete. It officially ends when the last Regional Status Class NFT is claimed by a quester. At the current pace we believe that’ll happen in early 2023. But it could end as soon as early Q4 2022.

 

WHEN CAN I MINT MY NFTs?

All NFTs claimed, or bought at a discount in your KongQuest can be minted when the KongQuest officially ends. If any Rank NFTs remain unsold at the conclusion of the KongQuest, base versions of the remaining quantity will be listed for mint at full price (6x the current price) on the main Banana Kingdom website. Note: All NFTs are tied to your KongQuest account in this app. You’ll need access to your account to mint your NFTs on mint day. You can view all NFT mint-passes claimed or bought in your KongQuest account here.


WHAT BLOCKCHAIN ARE YOU USING?

Rank and Status NFTs will be minted on either Immutable X or Ethereum. Ethereum V2 is slated to launch in late August 2022. If Ethereum’s shift to Proof of Stake proves fruitful; gas prices for minting and transfers are on par with other Layer 2 Networks like Polygon and Binance Smart Chain, we will mint on Ethereum. If not, we will mint on Immutable X.
