Review Crabada ($CRA) – An exciting and promising IDO project won’t let you down on release day
Crabada is a game project that will officially debut for the first time on the Avalaunch IDO platform. This launch is compatible with the current tendency because the impact of gaming, and now GameFi on the blockchain space cannot be overstated. Gaming is simply too big an industry, and the blockchain is too abundant in opportunities, for it to be ignored. With the advent of “play-and-earn” and the buzzword, “GameFi” now in crypto users’ vernacular, this model represents a potent connection that could well last a very long time. What we are seeing is only the beginning, and it is one that the Avalanche ecosystem will play a significant role in delivering. Avalanche is attracting an increasing number of top-tier projects that require the low fee structure and near-instant finality of this powerful Layer-1.
What is Crabada?
Crabada is an exciting play-and-earn NFT game set in the future occupied by fierce fighting Hermit-Crabs. Players will rediscover the prosperous ancient Kingdom of Crabada and earn rewards through activities such as mining, looting, breeding, battling, exploring, crafting, and more.
This is an idle game, which means users can play it whenever and wherever they want with little disruption to their daily life. Furthermore, the gameplay also provides its players with not only entertainment but also financial value.
What is the project trying to achieve?
Crabada NFT assets and core gameplay effectively combine to create an addictive and undeniably fun experience. The game’s goal is to bring an innovative play-and-earn model to market through a unique PvMP (Player Versus Player)-infused idle gameplay.
Users can mine, loot, and breed their own $CRA to strengthen their forces within the system. Earners of their governance token are invited to shape the kingdom’s future through governing powers and decide its fate.
What is the unique selling point?
Crabada is a productive asset that can be deployed into the various mines of the undersea world. Players must first form a Mining Party (comprising 3 Crabada). Next, players select a vacant mine and deploy their Mining Party. The hardworking Crabada will begin the process of mining treasure without any supervision required from players.
By default, each Mining Expedition takes 4 hours and returns a reward of 3.75 CRA and 303.75 TUS once completed.
Besides that, Crabada can be used to loot a mine that is occupied by a Mining Party. Depending on whether the Mining Party sends reinforcements to defend their mine, each Looting Mission will take from 1 hour to 2.5 hours. A Looting Party will receive 0.3 CRA and 24.3 TUS for each Looting Mission in which users participate.
A successful Looting Mission would result in stealing 65% of the Mining Party’s rewards, for a sum of 2.4375 CRA and 197.4375 TUS.
An unsuccessful Looting Mission would result in stealing none of the Mining Party’s rewards.
Crabada Breeding and Marketplace
Each Crabada has a primary attribute of faction, which is determined by its class. Crabada inherits factional benefits and weaknesses based on the faction it belongs to.
There are 8 classes in total.
A Crabada’s base attributes are determined by its class. Certain classes of Crabada enjoy higher base attributes.
Each Crabada has a primary attribute of Breed Type which can increase the number of rewards mined when at least one Crabada of this class is in the Mining Party.
The mining speed of a Mining Expedition is also affected by the cumulative speed attribute of the entire Mining Party, with a positive modifier that reduces total mining duration, up to a 1hr reduction.
There are a total of 8 Breed Types in each Class.
PvE, PvP Combat (Q2 2022)
Classes make certain roles in battle more suitable for each Crabada.
The three main Class archetypes consist of Tanks, Damage, Support.
In order to start breeding, Players are required to have two Crabada that are eligible for breeding, and a sufficient amount of Breeding Material to cover the Breeding Cost. Players can breed Crabada at any time as long as the requirements for breeding are met. Each breeding activity creates a blockchain transaction, and breeding completes once the transaction is successfully confirmed on the blockchain.
Each Crabada can be bred up to five times. After that, it is no longer eligible for breeding.
CRA and TUS are essential materials required for breeding. A fixed amount of 105 CRA is used for each breeding while the amount of TUS depends on the number of times each Crabada has previously bred. The more times a Crabada has been bred, the larger the amount of TUS required.
Successful completion of Breeding produces an Egg that belongs to the player. Eggs take exactly five days to hatch into a new brand new that is ready to begin the adventure in Crabada.
Players can view their Crabada and Eggs that are currently in their wallet, as well as their balance of CRA and TUS.
Buy and Sell
Players can browse through listings of Crabada to buy, as well as a list for sale.
Players sell Crabada by creating a listing, with a specified ask price. Buyers are able to purchase the Crabada by spending TUS from his wallet. Upon confirmation of the transaction on the blockchain, the settlement is settled instantaneously. The Seller receives TUS in his wallet, and the Crabada is transferred to the Buyer.
The native currency used for transactions will be TUS tokens.
In the first release, basic analytics are provided, including:
- Total Crabada Sold over time
- Total Volume over time
- Average Price of Crabada over time
- Recent Sales in the Marketplace
Sellers are charged a 3.85% fee on completion of a transaction.
Players that do not have available Crabada for reinforcement can visit the Tavern to hire Crabada.
Once a Crabada is hired, it will join your battle as reinforcement. After the end of the battle, the Crabada returns to the Tavern.
Players that have idle Crabada can deploy them to the Tavern. These Crabada are added to the pool of available Crabada-for-hire.
When a borrowed Crabada participates as reinforcement in battle, it is affected by a cooldown before it can be borrowed again.
Players are able to withdraw their Crabada as long as it is not in battle.
Players are able to set a price at which to lend their Crabada. Market transaction data is provided to help players make the best decision.
Prices can be updated by the player at any time.

Market and Community
The terms “crypto gaming” and “blockchain gaming” are becoming more popular. People are curious about how collectibles, NFTs, micropayments, and virtual asset marketplaces will impact the gaming industry. Despite these disadvantages, collectible games are now among the most popular Blockchain-based games available. Since then, many other special edition games have emerged, including NBA Top Shot by the same game developer Dapper Labs, football card game Sorare, and the currently popular game Axie Infinity. Crabada’s new style of playing and owning NFT has the promise to become a future crypto gaming and NFT powerhouse in Avalanche Ecosystem
In terms of guild membership, voting in project-related affairs provides the community with a direct say in how the Carbada operates. Anyone who owns at least one CRA token has the right to participate in its governance and representation. This means that CRA token holders can make suggestions, vote on them, and ultimately assist to determine the future of Carbada.

We have known three similar projects on the same Avalanche Ecosystem, including:
- Avax Cells
- Avax Duels
- Avax City
Bringing a fully developed game to market is capital and development-intensive process that can take years. Despite being tradable assets for a year or more, many of the listed blockchain gaming projects have yet to release anything substantial. It is not an easy path to walk, and Avalanche has been fortunate to attract a number of more mature projects to the chain. Crabada certainly qualifies as one of them.
