In September, we announced Pixels.xyz’s migration to Ronin. Today, we’ve deployed essential smart contracts that pave the way for Pixels’ full migration. That means you can now create a Pixels account using your Ronin wallet, start earning the $BERRY token, buy Pets on Mavis Market, and more! This is just the beginning of our work together. Here’s how you can get started with Pixels on Ronin:
Pixels gameplay on Ronin will be the same as it was on Polygon. However, you’ll need to connect your Ronin wallet rather than an Ethereum wallet to play. The Pixels team has created some helpful guides to get you started – whether you’re a new or existing Pixels player. Check them out here:
$BERRY is an in-game utility token in Pixels. The token has an uncapped supply to enable free-to-play gaming experiences, and players can earn $BERRY by completing in-game challenges or selling resources they’ve generated. For example, today every player earns 10 $BERRY after finishing the farming tutorial with Barney. You can also sell a plate of Pancakes for 1 $BERRY, and buy a small Speck Land for 100 $BERRY. While these numbers may change over time, the currency will remain a key part of Pixels’ gameplay. The more $BERRY you have, the more Pixels experiences you can discover. These kinds of features create supply and demand for the $BERRY token, which will soon be available on Ronin's Katana DEX as a RON/BERRY pair!
Pixels Genesis Pets are play-to-mint NFTs. That means you have to play Pixels to mint one!
The Pixels team has put up 200 limited-edition Pixels Genesis Pets for adoption. Will you bring one of these cute buddies home? There are over 900,000 total players in Pixels, so fewer than 1% of these players will be able to own one of these little friends – and the only way to mint one is through Pixels’ gameplay. Pixels Genesis Pets are more than rare NFTs: they are in-game companions that enhance gameplay. Pets increase your avatar’s storage capacity and interaction radius. Manage their happiness meter to get the most out of your relationship! Here’s how to adopt a pet:
• Your own land
• A Growth Lab
Step 1: In Pixels, go to the Carnival and play games to earn tickets
Step 2: Bring your tickets to the Pets trailer in TerraVilla
Step 3: Redeem tickets for a chance to win a Pet coupon
If you don’t win the first time, keep trying and go back to Step 1! There are 200 Pet coupons available over the 30-day Carnival. You’re competing with others for a daily distribution of Pets, so the earlier you start while the competition is low, the higher your chances are to secure a Genesis Pet.
Step 4: If you won, you’ll receive a MINT Capsule in your Ronin wallet
Step 5: Bring this MINT Capsule to the in-game growth lab and breed your Pet with potions
Step 6: To hatch your pet, purchase a Growth Lab from Kirby at the Pet Shop and place it on your land
Step 7: Find a potions table and start crafting!
Step 8: Place all 30 potions into the Growth Lab and choose your capsule to hatch!
Even if you missed out on getting your Pixels Genesis Pet, don't fret—you can buy a pet on Mavis Market if someone has listed theirs for sale.
You may have heard about the $PIXEL token during the past Pixels AMAs. This is a premium in-game currency in Pixels that will be much harder to acquire than $BERRY. It’s similar to GEMS from the game Clash of Clans. However, $PIXEL is still unreleased and you cannot earn it – yet. When it comes out, you’ll be able to use $PIXEL for a variety of experiences like minting new land, unlocking skill enhancers, speeding up build times, and more. Stay tuned for more info, and read about the token in the Pixels Docs.
Gacha: a game where players redeem points to receive a chance at winning randomized prizes.

Step 1: Log into your Moku account or create a new one
Step 2: Go to the Ronin x Pixels Gacha Quest

Step 4: Complete the quests to earn points
Step 5: Redeem your points for Gacha rolls

We’ve welcomed many builders to the Ronin family over the past year. Today, we’re thrilled to count Pixels among them. The world is starting to realize that Ronin is the best place to build Web3 games, and this is just the beginning. Step by step, we will be the king of the gaming chains.
