crabada

Crabada is the most popular game on Avalanche. It’s a play to earn. It’s an idle game. And it’s profitable for now.

I named Crabada as the top blockchain on Avalanche in this article.

I got into Crabada early. Whitelisted for the special breeding event. So I started at somewhat of an advantage. But, that’s not to say that you can’t still profit.

The premise is simple. There’re Crab NFTs that mine, loot and breed.


Mining

Mining requires 3 crabs. 3 crabs make up a team. A team of crabs are set out to mine for rewards. The rewards are tokens. CRA and TUS. CRA is Crabada’s governance token. TUS is Crabada’s in-game currency. An interesting point to note here: TUS is also the gas token of the Swimmer network. Crabada’s subnet.

Looting

Looting also requires 3 crabs. A team. You interrupt others’ mining to steal some of their rewards.

Breeding

Breeding requires 2 crabs and some tokens. As the name suggests; breeding makes new crabs. Each Crab involved in the ritual shares some of its DNA with the offspring. As happens when you breed IRL.

Beyond the 3 core mechanics, there’re more features. Firstly, the Tavern. Secondly, Amulets. And, finally, the marketplace.

The Tavern

The Tavern is where Crabs are lent. This is where I leave my Crabs. I’m not consistent enough to play the game. Lending Crabs generates passive income for me. Which, I compound and use to buy more crabs.

Crabada Amulets

Amulets (CRAM) are awarded for staking CRA. It’s a reward token used to reduce sell pressure on CRA. It also unlocks various other in-game features.

Marketplace

The marketplace is where Crabs are bought and sold. Browsing the marketplace you’ll see they’re pretty expensive. Ranging 4-6 figures.
