Dookey Dash by Yuga Labs is no exception to the rule that games include cheaters and boosters. The Ethereum NFT racing game “Dookey Dash” has been accused of cheating.
After all of these events, news about the game, and players’ excitement about it, Bored Ape Yacht Club finally tweeted the winner of the “Dookey Dash”.
The grand prize goes to Mongraal, a well-known pro Fortnite player from the e-gaming team Faze Clan. Mongraal’s great gaming skills put him in the top spots for Dookey Dash, where he broke the high score more than once. Dookey Dash was a unique game because people from all over the world played it to try to win.
Since the Sewer Pass NFTs came out on January 18, when the makers of the Ethereum NFTs launched the game challenge with the promise that the player with the highest score would get a mysterious reward, they have sold more than 36,000 ETH, which is about $60 million.
From what people said on Twitter, the Dookey Dash results didn’t really shock many people, since Mongraal beat the highest scores more than once. some of them give security advice. “Congrats, king!” wrote Satvik Sethi, former Mastercard product lead for NFTs, responding to Mongraal’s win. “Cannot be understated. Please take extra precautions with your wallet security now,” he said. “Don’t click any random links, verify every URL and type things in yourself, don’t do any OTC trades and swaps, and plenty of threads and spaces out there to learn more.”
People said that people were cheating and using “boosters” to make their scores look better on the leaderboard. Others said that the cheaters were using exploits to get around Yuga Labs’ measures to stop cheating.
Boosters charged between 0.25 ETH, or about $420 at the time, for a score of 250,000 or higher and 2.5 ETH, or about $4200, for a score of 700,000 or higher.
