Kryptomon — The Lore Challenge
Hello trainers, welcome back to the wonderful world of Kryptomon. We’ve seen a lot of really interesting things happen lately, with KMON staking coming online a few days ago on the 10th of September 2021, and our second Founder’s Talks session with Ari from Simplex dropping quite a few fascinating reveals. If you haven’t already, I highly suggest you check it out. (Give it a like, a subscribe, a comment maybe if you’re feeling psyched for the big reveals 😉)
Thanks to our amazing devs, the staking feature has received an update. You can now see an estimated number of tickets you can expect to receive per week, though it’s important to note that this is an estimate and makes the assumption that the amount of staked KMON remains constant in the entire week.
Today’s article is going to be something different. It’s just as important as our previous reveals of KMON staking or our partnership with Simplex, and is something that’s very close to my heart. Today, we’re going to be talking about lore.
. . .
OMG YOU CAN WIN KRYPTOMON EGGS????
Now that I have your attention, yes you can indeed! But if you want to win you’ll have to read the rest of the article :)
Kryptomon is a huge endeavor, with many moving parts and priorities that get shifted around almost on a daily basis. We’ve got the tech side of things, the game, the KMON token, the many partnerships, articles to write for staking, the lotteries and marketing campaigns etc etc. Thankfully, we’ve got an amazing team that somehow manages to handle all of that work. But hidden underneath the endless tasks and to do lists, one aspect of Kryptomon has unfortunately had to be put aside for a while, Kryptomon’s lore.
The importance of a strong narrative supporting a game cannot be understated. Did you play Pokemon Yellow as a kid because Pikachu was such a strong Pokemon and you absolutely needed an electric mouse in your lineup?
No. In fact, Pikachu is a terrible starter because the average player would get absolutely rekt at Brock’s gym if you relied solely on Pikachu. 😂 No, we played Pokemon Yellow because we all wanted to be Ash, to be that trainer starting our journey in the wonderful world of Pokemon. To live out the anime where we also caught Caterpie and Pidgey and went on to win the Pokemon League that Ash couldn’t.

Discover the Kryptomon story… if you can 👀
Though the storyline has taken a backseat so far, all of that changes today! After plenty of brainstorming and more than a few sleepless nights, the Kryptomon story is finally taking shape and is something we’re very excited to share with the world… if you can decipher it. 😉
Starting the 21st of September 2021 we’ll be releasing a series of Koa’s Log articles, an insight into Professor Koa’s life as he discovers and first comes into contact with his own Kryptomon. The best part? In each one there will be a Lore Challenge, which will be YOUR chance to not only help Professor Koa solve the mystery of Kryptomon, but also become a Kryptomon trainer by winning a free Kryptomon egg!
. . .
How the Lore Challenges Work
So far, only 5 pages of Koa’s Log have been discovered. You’ve already seen and read one, which gave you the link to the surveillance feed that Professor Koa is using to monitor all 10,000 Kryptomon eggs discovered so far.
Starting the 21st of September, we’ll reveal one additional page of Koa’s Log every week. For every single page, there are 2 ways in which you’ll be able to win an egg.
- Solving the puzzle
- Random lucky draw from Twitter
As mentioned above, every page revealed will come with 2 things — its own puzzle/challenge and a link to a tweet made by the official Kryptomon account specific to that week’s challenge. If you think you’ve found the solution to the puzzle, then head on over to the Google Form link mentioned in the article and submit your answer! This will require you to complete a series of tasks in order for your answer to be considered valid, which are to:
- Like and retweet the official Kryptomon tweet linked in the article
- Follow us on Twitter
- Provide your Twitter handle, name and email so that we can contact you if you win
- Enter your BSC wallet address
- Submit an answer!
- Explain how you got your answer!
It should go without saying, but if you submit the correct answer and in our checks we notice that you didn’t like/retweet the official Kryptomon tweet, your answer is disqualified and we’ll pick the winner from the remaining submitted answers. So don’t forget to complete all the tasks! 👍
3 Winners Every Challenge!
Hurry up though! There are 2 eggs available to be won every week via solving the puzzle. The first will be given to the FIRST person who completes the tasks and submits the correct answer.
The second egg will be a mini lottery reserved ONLY for people who’ve completed the tasks and solved the puzzle. Even if you aren’t the first person to solve the puzzle, there’s still merit in deciphering the correct answer and keeping it to yourself. Remember, the fewer people in the lottery, the higher your chances of winning! 😉
⭐ Be warned. We will NOT entertain any requests to have the winner’s egg sent to any other wallet address besides the one specified in the Google Form. This is to avoid potential scams where scammers recreate your Twitter profile and contact us in an attempt to have the egg sent to them instead.
We will ONLY send the winning egg to the wallet address specified in the Google Form. There are NO exceptions.
The third and final egg will be a random Twitter lottery! For everyone who’s liked and retweeted the tweet linked in that week’s Koa’s Log, you also stand a chance to win an egg for free. BUT! Here’s the thing, the random winner is only chosen when the puzzle is solved! If nobody can solve the puzzle, NO ONE gets an egg.
There is NO deadline for this.

Frequently Asked Questions
How will I know if someone’s already solved the challenge for this week?
If someone has successfully solved the puzzle and submitted the correct answer to us, we’ll reveal the winner of the challenge and the winner of the lottery in next week’s Koa’s Log.
However, it’s very possible that next week’s Koa’s Log doesn’t come with a winner, in which case you’ll know that the puzzle hasn’t been solved yet and you can still submit your answer!
. . .
Can I win multiple times?
Of course! We’re certainly not going to restrict or punish our trainers for being creative or smart. If you’re the first to solve the puzzle in Week 1 and win the egg, there is absolutely no reason why you can’t attempt to solve the puzzle in Week 2.
Heck, if you’re really lucky, you could potentially even win all 3 eggs in the same week if you’re the first to solve the puzzle + win both the random Twitter and random Puzzle lottery eggs!
. . .
How many answers can I submit?
As many as you’d like! The forms have been changed so that they don’t accept editing anymore, but feel free to submit as many answers as you want to. There is no limit. 👍
