Getting Started

  • Sign in to your account.
  • Go to the marketplace.
  • Choose a cryptomonster and visit its profile.
  • Click on the "Buy Now" button and follow the instructions.

All transactions on the marketplace are processed through our Double-Transactions Payment System, which is an integral part of the platform.

  • Go to "My Monsters".
  • Filter your monsters by "Ready to evolve".
  • Choose a cryptomonster to play with and press the "Join the evolution" button.
  • Then choose a fair or a crazy game.
  • Wait for all players - between 2 and 5 cryptomonsters must join.
  • The game starts, when the last cryptomonster joins.
  • Wait for the blockchain.
  • When the resolving block appears in the blockchain, the game ends and your monster evolves - it either grows or shrinks, but can't remain the same anymore.

You can split any of your cryptomonsters into two smaller ones - you are free to specify the resulting monsters levels.

Why would you want to split a cryptomonster?

In case it's very big and you want to minimize the risk of losing the next game: you can split it in two and play with one of the resulting ones, reducing the risk of losing, but also - the chance of winning the next evolutionary round.

How to split a cryptomonster?

  • Go to "My Monsters".
  • Choose a cryptomonster to split and press the "Join the evolution" button.
  • Then press the "Split in two" button.
  • Choose the resulting monsters` levels on the next screen.
  • Confirm by pressing the "Split it" button.
  • Your two new cryptomonsters will appear in "My Monsters" instantly.
  • Sign in to your account.
  • Go to the marketplace.
  • Choose a cryptomonster and visit its profile.
  • Click on the "Sell" button and follow the instructions on the next screen. It is recommended that you specify a discount - this will make your monster more attractive to the potential buyers.

All transactions on the marketplace are processed through our Double-Transactions Payment System, which is an integral part of the platform.

Frequently Asked Questions

CryptoMonsters.world is a new type of game based on the Litecoin blockchain technology. It represents a virtual world, which is inhabited by cryptomonsters, constantly evolving and interacting with each other. Learn more here.
The cryptomonster is the native inhabitant of the CryptoMonsters world. Each cryptomonster is unique and always striving to evolve.
The crypto evolution is the process of constant change of the cryptomonsters. It happens as a sequence of evolutionary rounds, each of them opposing 5 cryptomonsters - depending on the progress of the Litecoin blockchain one of monsters wins and the other four lose. As a result they grow or shrink, and assimilate each other's characteristics.
You can never know how your cryptomonsters will look tomorrow, if you let them evolve today...
For detailed description check the What is the idea page.
There is a fixed ratio between the cryptomonster's level and its nominal value. This ratio is set by us and at this moment is 0.1.
This means that a cryptomonster with level 1 has a nominal value of 0.1 LTC.
You may also say that a cryptomonster with level 1 is worth 0.1 LTC even if it is not for sale at the moment.
When your cryptomonsters evolve, you can offer them for sale on the marketplace. It is recommended that you specify a discount - this will make the your monsters more attractive to the potential buyers.
Please note that there are some limitations - a cryptomonster's selling price can't be less than 0.1 LTC and the maximum allowed discount on its nominal value is 90%. Monsters below level 1 can't be sold.
They are digital characters and as such the platform tracks and records, who owns them. Please note that we do not use the Ethereum's smart contract technology. Instead, we use the Litecoin blockchain network only to determine how the cryptomonsters evolve, based on the actions of the players, which they perform on the platform. The proof of a cryptomonster's ownership is stored on the platform (not on the blockchain itself), because the Litecoin network doesn't support non-fungible tokens.

Our payment processing system enables direct and secure Litecoin transactions between Litecoin wallets and/or Coinbase accounts without any risks, while allowing the system to track and confirm these payments and change the ownership of the CryptoMonsters accordingly.

How does it work?

  • The system defines 3 parties - a buyer, a seller and the system itself.
  • Each payment requires two transactions:
    - The first transaction is between the buyer and the system - the transaction fee is paid by the buyer.
    - The second transaction is between the system and the seller - the transaction fee is paid by the system.
  • When the buyer confirms his intent to buy a cryptomonster, a temporal internal LTC receiving address is created and assigned to the buyer by the system.
  • The buyer is instructed to pay the specified amount to the temporal LTC address within the next 5 minutes.
  • When the payment is received and confirmed by the Litecoin network (6 confirmations required), a processing fee (4.75% of the cryptomonster's selling price) is collected by the system. The processing fee will be set to 15% on August 27, 2018 at 00:00 (UTC+0) in order to allow us to maintain the platform further.
  • Then the payment is sent to the seller's LTC address via a second LTC transaction - the system covers the transaction fee for this transaction.

Fees

  • We take a commission (processing fee) from each cryptomonster's purchase on our marketplace in order to keep our payment processing system fast and secure, and to cover the transaction fee for the transaction to the cryptomonster's seller.
  • The buyer pays a small transaction fee, which is required by the Litecoin mining network. Normally this fee is specified in the wallet software before making the transaction. You should set a transaction fee, which is high enough for the transaction to be processed by the network within the next 2 blocks. When you make a purchase, we give you an estimate of the required transaction fee.
  • We don't profit from the transaction fees - they are required by the Litecoin mining network.
  • The seller doesn`t pay a transaction fee - it is covered by us.

Is the system secure?

Yes, absolutely - that's why the second transaction is made. For the sake of clarity - the payment is received by the system, confirmed and then immediately sent away to the seller in order to ensure that no funds stay in the platform itself except the processing fee. It's safe to say that using our payment system is as secure as your personal Litecoin wallet or your Coinbase account: we transfer the funds between our users' wallets (no funds are kept on the platform).

The evolutionary rounds are resolved in a way, which excludes any possibility of manipulation of the end result. Each game is resolved based on the hash value of a block of the Litecoin blockchain, which is unknown at the time, when the game has started. Because of that each game takes approximately 10 minutes to complete - to allow the Litecoin network to generate and propagate the recently mined blocks through the network.

What is Litecoin?

The Litecoin is a decentralized, low cost cryptocurrency, which is based on the blockchain technology. It is one of the oldest and stable digital currencies and is being actively developed and maintained since it was formed in 2011.

Why did we choose it?

The Litecoin ranks as one of the top 10 most valuable cryptocurrencies in the world by market capitalization. It has all of the functionality of Bitcoin with some notable improvements:

  • faster transaction speed,
  • extended safety,
  • low transaction fees.

What is the Blockchain?

The blockchain technology provides a decentralized and secure way to make transactions between peers. The blockchain is a consensus-driven decentralized system, which maintains a public ledger, secured by cryptography and accessible by every user of the network. The ledger consists of immutable linked lists of transactions known as blocks, which are cryptographically signed.
