Gathering Energy is already a great incentive for banking your daily steps — allowing you to Harvest KI, Level Up, and get ahead of future gameplay (Battle, Exploration, and more). Banking your steps and getting Energy every day is great for your gameplay and keeps you active IRL.

And if all that wasn’t enough to remember to bank, we’re about to sweeten the deal with Banking Rewards.

Banking Rewards

When it comes to Nurturing your pet, you will want to feed and play with them regularly (no one wants to neglect their pet). But you’re probably wondering how you’ll get the food and toys when the play and feed mechanics are released. Banking Rewards are the answer!

Each day as you go about your life and take steps — whether at the gym, at work, or anywhere else — your Genopet is right there by your side. And while their little feet are pitter-pattering on the grounds of Esoterra, they’re known for finding food and toys they like to collect.

But don’t worry, your Genopet is well trained and knows they need to ask permission to keep anything they find. So how do you give permission? Press that big, beautiful button on the app’s home screen and bank your steps.

Each day when you bank your steps, your Genopet will show you the items they found — they could be anything from a dragonfruit to ice cream cones to throwing rockets.

This ups the stakes of remembering to bank. If you forget, you’ll lose out on all that potential energy, and your Genopet misses out on all their Treasures! And trust us, when feeding and playing mini-games are released, you’ll want as many toys and food as possible — Genopets have notoriously big appetites and like to play rough.

The Nitty-Gritty of Banking Rewards

  • To receive Banking Rewards, you must take at least 1,000 steps and bank them in the app
  • Banking Rewards can only be earned once a day (no matter how many times you bank 1,000 steps, you will only receive Banking Rewards the first time)
  • When feeding and playing are first released, the only way to get toys and food for your Genopet is to earn them via Banking Rewards
  • Your Genopet can only keep the food and toys they found throughout the day if you bank your steps
  • You can receive up to 6 items each day you receive Banking Rewards
  • The items you receive as Banking Rewards are in-game assets and currently cannot be minted into SFTs outside the game
  • In the future, it will be possible to craft or purchase food and toy items from Magic Eden. However, it will not be possible to craft any of the food or toys your Genopet represented in Banking Rewards


Banking Rewards will play a key role in managing your Genopet’s mood. This game mechanic is important to pay attention to because Mood is a factor in determining how efficiently you can convert Steps into Energy. In simpler terms, the better Mood your Genopet is in, the more Energy each of your steps is worth.

Mood reflects how well a Genopet’s needs (e.g., Nutrition, Joy, and Love) are being met. And unlike petting, which doesn’t require any items, feeding and playing require food and toys to play and increase your pet’s mood. To ensure you always have enough food and toys to keep your Genopet entertained, you must bank your steps and earn Banking Rewards daily. Without them, your Genopet will be bored and hungry, and who wouldn’t be grumpy after conditions like those?

Your Genopet enjoys the exploratory nature of finding Treasures throughout Esoterra that they get to share with you — the other half. To show them you’re just as excited by what they’ve found, bank your daily steps and permit them to keep their bounty. Who knows what they’ll find tomorrow — donuts, lollipops, frisbees, maracas…the possibilities are endless!
