Call it DookyDash or Dookey Dash - it's had an impact on P2E gaming
Dookey Dash, sometimes wrongly referred to as DookyDash, hit the gaming market at the beginning of 2023 when it became the trendiest topic on the various NFT (non-fungible token) communities across all social media platforms.
Having made a promise to revolutionize the P2E (play-to-earn) market, it is a skill-based NFT mint game by Yuga Labs, the development team behind collections such as the BAYC (Bored Ape Yacht Club), MAYC (Mutant Ape Yacht Club), and BAKC (Bored Ape Kennel Club).
Whether you call it Dookey Dash or DookyDash, to understand what this trendy keyword entails, let us briefly examine what it is all about.
## Whether it's Dookey Dash or DookyDash, it introduced Sewer Passes
Modelled after games such as Temple Run and Subway Surfers, players of this game had to compete in an endless running challenge.
Like the other games, those who can survive obstacles thrown their way during the challenge get the top points (scores) and receive prizes.
Once you are knocked out, players have to begin from the start.
Despite being modelled after the aforementioned games, which are free to play by all manner of persons, playing Dookey Dash (the correct form of DookyDash) came with some requirements.
Between 18 January and 8 February, when the game was at its peak, participants needed to be stakeholders of Yuga Labs' ecosystem.
To join, you had to be an active holder of a Bored Ape or Mutant Ape NFT. Holding these NFTs guaranteed gamers Sewer Passes, a limited edition NFT that enabled access to the game.
Sewer Passes came in four different tiers. Each tier had different point-earning bonuses. With a MAYC NFT, gamers received the lowest pass (Tier 1), and with a Mutant Ape and BAKC, they received a Tier-2 pass. BAYC only gave gamers a Tier-3 pass, while Tier-4 holders had BAKC and BAYC NFTs.
The game was supported by many browsers, such as Google Chrome, Apple's Safari, Microsoft Edge, and Mozilla Firefox.
When the game's top scorers were frozen after 8 February, eligible Sewer Passes were transformed into new rewards on 15 February.
## Dookey Dash key sold for $1.6 million in March
Kyle Jackson, a Twitch streamer, won the golden key for receiving the highest score while playing Dookey Dash, the P2E game occasionally referred to as DookyDash. He sold his NFT "key" for 1,000 ETH (around $1.6 million) towards the end of February.
As of 11 August 2023, Sewer Pass NFTs had generated around $110 million in all-time sales, with the peak of its monthly sale coming during January ($57 million), when millions of BAYC and MAYC holders jumped into the Dookey Dash, or DookyDash, P2E game.
