One Last Ape Standing: Bringing to the Spotlight ApeX NFT Game
A new gaming paradigm based on real asset ownership and a new “play-to-earn” model is gaining popularity with the emergence of blockchain-based gaming and non-fungible tokens (NFTs). Play-to-earn NFT-based games have captured the interest of gamers all over the world, swiftly becoming the industry’s fastest-growing segment. Leveraging on this concept, the ApeX team has embraced the concept of NFT gaming, resulting in the creation of ApeX’s flagship NFT game — One Last Ape Standing.
The core gameplay and inspiration behind the play2earn game “One Last Ape Standing” was derived from the popular Squid game, which is a coordination game where players may choose whether they want to take ownership of earned tokens right away or HODL it longer and earn from a bigger pool of tokens that will be lost by those that burn their own tokens much earlier.
To redeem the APEX token earned during gameplay, holders must burn their ApeX predator NFTs. ApeX NFT game payouts are separated into two categories: base rewards and bonuses. According to ApeX, two things influence the number of bonuses a player may earn: holding time and the number of NFTs left in the game. Over time, the gaming model is designed to create scarcity, compounding more rewards for the last ape standing.

The ApeX Predator NFTs are the entrance tickets for the ApeX NFT Game and the ApeX Loyalty Program. Early Predator NFT holders are entitled to special privileges; the longer the holding time, the greater the incentives. According to ApeX, Predators NFT holders will receive 0.2TH for each NFT held. All rebate rewards will be distributed in accordance with the official debut date of ApeX NFT Game.
