Alice Wong, the lead developer and CEO of the Monkey Kingdom NFT collection, draws inspiration from Journey to the West. One of the most popular stories amongst millennials in Asia – which also contributed to its hype! Check their website for more info at!

The Story

Monkey_Kingdom GFX - AIO BotThe story of the collection is based on the 16th-century Chinese novel Journey to the West by Wu Cheng’en. Basically, the Monkey Kingdom NFT collection takes inspiration from the legend of Sun Wukong – the Chinese trickster god. Who is also known as the Monkey King! 

Here’s how the story goes: the Buddha imprisoned Sun Wukong under a mountain for 500 years. Then, Wukong escaped and wreaked havoc in Heaven to take revenge! And so, with his many supernatural powers, he transformed into the 2,222 unique versions of himself! Ready to fight and DESTROY!

The creators of the Monkey Kingdom NFT collection have stated, “The Buddha is an almighty God and also a crypto whale who invested in Solana when it was US$1.”

However, since the Buddha was omnipotent and omniscient, he knew that Wukong was coming! And so, Buddha tricked all the 2,222 Wukongs and trapped them on the Solana blockchain! And then, he named the prison The Monkey Kingdom!

The Mission

The Progress

Monkey_Kingdom GFX 2 - AIO BotEver since the inception of the Monkey Kingdom NFT collection, it attracted tons of NFT celebrities! This includes DJ Steve Aoki, JJ Lin, Sunny Wang, Ian Chan, and more! It’s been topping charts on the Solana NFT markets and attracted tons of NFT partnerships! Also, they were the first Asian NFT collection on Sotheby’s and Phillips in March of 2022!

Also, the Monkey Kingdom Solana project definitely had it’s down with the phishing NFT scam incident. They were victims of an unexpected hacking incident through a security breach in Discord. The hackers stole $1.3 MILLION worth of cryptocurrencies from the community’s funds. But, the team handled it pretty well by implementing additional security measures and promising to reimburse their holders.

And so, this move just proved how much the Monkey Kingdom NFT team is dedicated and promising. In other words, definitely a community you would enjoy being a part of! And, their plans for 2022 make them even more appealing!
