Monsta Tapwar is part of the Monsta Infinite brand and combines a PvP battle game similar to Axie Infinity. But Monsta also adds a speed-run puzzle, where players have a round of match-three between battles. Monsta Tapwar requires each team to start with three monsters, with 6 skill cards, 2 attack and 2 defense cards, as well as a lucky draw from additional cards. The battle thus resembles Axie Infinity arena mode, and the Monster creatures carry a similar esthetic.
Monsta Tapwar already has a functioning marketplace of creatures with breeding DNA data and skills.
Monsta Infinite uses sMONI and STT tokens to buy the Creatures. STT is a highly volatile token and players are advised to be careful about price fluctuations. STT started off at the end of 2021 with a price of $0.003, and is now down to $0.0003 with recent high fluctuations of about 30%.
STT and MONI Tokens Make Up the Game’s Economy
STT relies on three trading pairs based on Pancake Swap, against BUSD, MONI and WBNB. MONI, or Monsta Infinite Token, is the more stable asset with a better exchange representation. MONI trades on KuCoin and is currently at around $0.07. In the past, MONI has peaked at above $3.90 at the end of 2021. MONI is also key to the valuation of STT and the value locked in the game.
Both STT and MONI use MonstaChain, a proprietary blockchain for the game’s own assets. Buying NFT or using the game requires the tokens to be driven through MonstaBridge. The game is accessible through MonstaWallet, a specialized app to communicate with the game’s own blockchain.
