February 15, Yuga Labs, the company responsible for creating the collection NFT Bored Ape Yacht Clubmade official mongraal as the big winner of the competition Dookey Dasha game related to a mint / reveal NFT.
The professional esports player (Fortnite) has put up for sale its Sewer Pass ranked #1 and became the famous mystery chest key on OpenSea for 2,222 ETH, or about $3,700,000.
THE “skill-based mint” Dookey Dash of Bored Ape Yacht club (BAYC) finally has a winner. It is none other than the famous Fortnite pro player, Kyle “Mongraal” Jackson who will have done better than many other players with a score of 928,522.
In fact, more than 25,000 players participated in the game”Dookey Dash“, which was exclusive to holders of NFT Sewer Passoffered to members of the Bored Ape Yacht Club. It was also possible to exchange these NFT’soffering access to the game for users willing to shell out a few ethers to participate in the race.
The best score achieved with each Sewer Pass is then recorded and linked to the NFT corresponding with the promise that this will have an impact on the upcoming reveal. THE “summoning” or the invocation, as it is called yugashould take place on March 8 and despite the clues scattered all over the place, no one can be sure what is behind these Sewer Passes…
And this is all the more true for the better Sewer Pass of mongraal. The meta data of his NFT related to the record score has been modified to show the famous key. The usefulness and interest of the latter have not been revealed, but the NFT community believes that it still carries immense value, for the simple fact that it is a Bored Ape ecosystem unique NFT Yacht club.
As a reminder, a year earlier, a serum allowing to discover a Mega-Mutant had sold 1,542,069 ETH, nearly $6 million at the time. However, although rare, these NFTs exist in number of 13 unlike the key to the sewers, truly unique in addition to being the central piece of the new history told by Yuga.
The highest current bid on OpenSea is 222 ETH, or about $380,000.
This “skill-based mint” quickly became a real sports competition as players realized the potential rewards of high scoring. Very quickly, many former esport pro players started selling their services, promising to achieve a high score using the sewer pass of a holder willing to pay a few ethers.
THE boosters, as they were nicknamed, demanded around 0.25 ether, or more than $400 at the time, for a score of 250,000 or more, and 2.5 ether, or about $4,200 for a score of 700,000 or more. This giant instantaneous and decentralized commerce has certainly allowed many hostile gamers the NFT ecosystem to better understand usefulness of this technology.
In addition, the players very early on had the idea of sharing their daily grind on the game through streaming platforms like Twitch Or Youtubeopening up the NFT ecosystem to the gaming community more broadly.
Since their launch on January 18, secondary sales of NFT Sewer Pass exceeded 36,000 ETH, which equates to about $60 million. The floor price of passes briefly reached 3 ETH during the formalization of the scores, before falling back to around 2.5 ethers. Pass holders will have another opportunity to play, this time a version “Toad Fashion” of the game for new bonuses, on February 22.
Dookey Dash Top Players Cheating Accusations
As every time a video game can bring substantial financial gains, smart guys are looking for ways to cheat through different hacks, to improve their score. The team Bored Ape assured that she would be tough on cheating and remove rigged scores from every Sewer Pass concerned, preventing them from participating in the reveal / invocation of the NFT.
Eventually, just 2% of all scores were reset based on the process of reviewing scores for lack of fair play. However, affected users can still play the Toad Fashionin order to give a second chance to potential innocents who would have been taken in by a “booster” who would have cheated with their pass instead of playing clean.
A few netizens also accused mongraal to use a cheat, trying to provide evidence, which apparently did not convince the game team. On the other side of the spectrum, the player and Internet user orange, had several of its high scores removed, for cheating. THE sports professional was fighting with mongraal for first place several times.
After discovering that his high scores had been resetthe player complained about Twitter, mentioning the Yuga Labs team. One of the main co-founders, garga (Greg Solano), took the liberty of answering him with screenshots proving the various cheating techniques used on the wallets concerned.
orange has since admitted to having shared the wallets possessing the Sewer Pass concerned to several other players. According to the pro playerone of his friends would have cheated by using these wallets, compromising his other scores.
