Passive Crypton Guide - Earn Free Crypton Passively

Updated December 15, 2019

Introduction

Welcome to the Clash of Streamers passive Crypton guide; a guide on how to get free Crypton using the passive Crypton system.

Crypton is the premium currency found in Clash of Streamers, and is vital to many areas of the game.

For example...

  • Crypton is the currency used to purchase streamer skins, pet skins and loot cards on the Auction House
  • Crypton is the currency used to export heroes/pets in the Blockchain building
  • Crypton is used to purchase ability-sets in the Spellbook
  • Crypton donations and challenges to other players

For a full list of Crypton uses, see the Crypton Guide.

Unfortunately, it’s usually fairly expensive to get Crypton; even when using some of the best Crypton purchasing methods found in the Pay-To-Play Guide.

Because of this, we need to be able to get as much Crypton as we can for free.

One of the best ways to get free Crypton is to optimize your account to receive a steady amount of passive Crypton.

In this guide, you will learn exactly what you need to do to start earning free Crypton; both as a free-to-play player, and as a pay-to-play player.

How It Works

So, how does the passive Crypton system work in general?

This is how the passive Crypton system works:

  1. Each player has a passive Crypton generation percentage.
  2. As players spend Crypton to purchase ability-sets in the Spellbook, the Crypton will be distributed amongst the player base based on each player's passive Crypton generation percentage.
  3. Players that receive any of the Crypton will find it sent through their mail.

It's as simple as that! Any Crypton spent in the Spellbook will be distributed to active Clash of Streamers players based on each player's passive Crypton generation percent.

So, in order to receive free Crypton from the passive Crypton system, you need to increase your passive Crypton generation by as much as possible!

Over the next few sections, we will go over the many ways of increasing your passive Crypton generation so you can improve your chances of receiving free Crypton.

Pet Passive Abilities

The first way to increase your passive Crypton generation is with pet passive abilities.

In fact, there are two pet passive abilities that increase passive Crypton generation, and they are both shared between each faction.

They are the following:


Pet Crypto Hodler

Passive: Being a crypto hodler increases your passive Crypton generation from pet ability sets by 100%.


Streamer Crypto Hodler

Passive: Being a crypto hodler increases your passive Crypton generation from streamer ability sets by 100%.


The Pet Crypto Hodler and Streamer Crypto Hodler abilities state that they increase passive Crypton generation from pet and streamer ability-sets by a certain percentage.

If all 6 of your active pets have both of these passive abilities enabled, you can increase your passive Crypton generation by up to 6,000%.

This is the best way to earn passive Crypton as a free-to-play player.

Since you're free to use any pet abilities that you want, if your goal is to maximize your passive Crypton generation, you should equip both of these abilities on each of your active pets.

In order to actually have both the Pet Crypto Hodler and Streamer Crypto Hodler abilities enabled on your pets, they need to be level 3.

This means that you constantly need to be collecting and upgrading pets to ensure you are earning a ton of pet dust.

You can get a ton of pet dust by doing the following:

  1. Collect 50 pets per day in Geopet GO.
  2. Capture all hatcheries and collect 50 eggs per day.
  3. Hatch all eggs manually in the Match-3 Pets building, or the Geopet GO hatchery menu.
  4. Upgrade pets every day in the Upgrade building.

After many days of grinding pets, you should have enough pet dust to get your best pets from each faction to level 3.

Once you have your best pets at level 3, you should do the following:

  1. Equip the level 3 pets with one or both of the Crypto Hodler abilities.
  2. Make the level 3 pets the active pets for their factions.
  3. Continue to upgrade the stars of the pets whenever you can. This will increase the effectiveness of both Crypto Hodler abilities.

After the weekly reset, you'll have some pet passive abilities aiding in your passive Crypton generation. The higher the stars of your active pets, the more often you'll likely receive some passive Crypton.

This is hugely important if you are looking to maximize your passive Crypton generation!

Take a look at the Pet Abilities Guide for a guide on how pet passive abilities work, and the Weekly Events Guide for a guide on completing Weekly Events to get very good pets.

Duplicate Ability-Sets

The second way to increase passive Crypton generation is by collecting duplicate ability-sets.

For in-depth info as to what duplicate ability-sets are and how they relate to passive Crypton, see the Duplicate Ability-Sets Guide.

If you read the guide, you'll learn that duplicate ability-sets are useful for a lot more than simply increasing passive Crypton generation.

In terms of how duplicate ability-sets relate to passive Crypton, this is all you need to know:

  • There is an achievement which you can get by collecting your streamer ability-set with the most duplicates
  • There is another achievement which you can get by collecting your pet ability-set with the most duplicates
  • Both of these achievements grant additional passive Crypton generation for each additional ability-set

Essentially, the more often you collect your streamer and pet ability-sets with the most duplicates, the more achievements you will collect. As a result, you will earn a lot more Crypton passively.

Both of these achievements can be collected up to 1000 times each; meaning you can get up to 20,000% increased passive Crypton generation from achievements.

This is an extremely significant passive Crypton generation percentage. Ultimately, if you are looking to maximize your passive Crypton generation, your end goal should be to collect both of these achievements 1000 times each.

To collect more duplicate ability-sets and increase your passive Crypton generation easily, you can do the following:

  1. Go to the Spellbook.
  2. Switch to the Streamers/Pets category.
  3. Click on the Crypton book to see the ability-set with the most duplicates.
  4. Click the “Invest” button, and purchase as many ability-sets as you can afford.

It will cost you approximately 100 per ability-set. So, if you manage to get 50 of these ability-sets, it will cost you around 5000, and as a result, you will have 500% increased passive Crypton generation.

This can be a rather expensive process, however, it's completely worth it. You will collect a ton of achievements, and as a result, earn a ton of loot, Legendary Stars, and increase your passive Crypton generation by a huge deal.

If you don't have much Crypton to spend on ability-sets or if you plan on buying hundreds of ability-sets, you can actually reduce the cost to purchase ability-sets, which can be hugely beneficial.

Buying Cheaper Ability-Sets

You can actually purchase pet ability-sets at discounted rates. This can be a great idea if you don't have very much Crypton or if you plan on spending a lot of Crypton to purchase ability-sets.

The way this works is through the pet ability, Pet Trainer!


Pet Trainer

Passive: As a skilled pet trainer, the cost to buy & swap pet ability sets is reduced by 1%.


Essentially, the Pet Trainer ability will reduce the cost to buy and swap pet ability-sets. This means that the Crypton cost to purchase pet ability-sets can drop significantly.

In fact, you can get the cost of a pet ability-set potentially under 70 if you have six active 9-star pets!

This can allow you to save an absolute ton of Crypton, allowing you to purchase even more ability-sets.

The best times to use this ability would be the following:

  • You are a free-to-play player who has a very small amount of Crypton
  • You are a pay-to-play player who plans on buying a ton of ability-sets

For example, if you plan on buying 500 pet ability-sets, it would normally cost you 50,000. However, if you had six active 9-star pets, you could purchase these same 500 pet ability-sets for only 35,000.

This can be extremely worth it in the long run!

Free-To-Play Strategy

While it may be more difficult to earn free Crypton as a free-to-play player, it's definitely still possible.

This section will outline every step that you should aim to take to maximize your potential free Crypton through the passive Crypton system.

Step #1: Equip the passive Crypton pet abilities on as many of your active pets as possible.

Since you can't generate passive Crypton through the duplicate ability-set system, you need to start with pet passive abilities. 

So, make sure you do the following:

  1. Capture each faction's hatchery in Geopet GO.
  2. Get your best pets from each faction to as high a level as possible (level 3 minimum).
  3. Equip an ability-set with at least one passive Crypton ability (preferably both) on your best pet from each faction.

By doing this, you should be earning your first bits of passive Crypton. Eventually, you'll end up receiving some free Crypton which you can eventually use to purchase some ability-sets.

Step #2: Gather up as much free Crypton as you can.

For this step, you need to ensure you are getting as much free Crypton as possible. Without Crypton, you simply can't purchase duplicate ability-sets and increase your passive Crypton generation further!

At this point, you should be receiving free Crypton from the following sources:

Both of these sources will give you the best possible chance of earning free Crypton as a free-to-play player. So, you need to sure you are taking advantage of them and gathering up as much free Crypton as you possibly can!

Step #3: Equip the Pet Trainer ability on any free slots in your active pet ability-sets, and then purchase your pet ability-set with the most duplicates.

Essentially the point of this step is to purchase your pet ability-set with the most duplicates at the most discounted price possible.

In order to do this, you need to make sure you are equipping the Pet Trainer ability on your active pets. In each of their ability-sets, you need to look for any slots that don't have any passive Crypton abilities. In any of those positions, equip the Pet Trainer ability.

Once you've done so and waited until the weekly reset (Friday, 12AM GMT), you can go ahead with purchasing your pet ability-set with the most duplicates.

Simply head into the Spellbook, switch to the pets section, click the Crypton book icon, click "Invest", and then purchase as many discounted ability-sets as possible.

As a result of doing this, you'll slowly start to gather more duplicate pet ability-sets, and as a result, you'll improve your passive Crypton generation even more.

This is likely the best possible way that you can approach passive Crypton generation as a free-to-play player.

If you follow all of these steps as a free-to-play player, you'll likely get yourself a good amount of Crypton all for free!

This strategy also works out well if you're a very low spender. However, if you're a big spender in Clash of Streamers, the next strategy will probably be best for you.

Pay-To-Play Strategy

As a pay-to-play player, you can approach the passive Crypton system in a variety of ways. Most likely, you'll want to start by purchasing a good amount of Crypton.

So, where should you get Crypton?

The best place to buy Crypton is on the Gaming for Good shop. The Gaming for Good shop simply has the best value for your money. In fact, the purchases on the Gaming for Good shop are almost 4x better value than the purchases found in the in-game shop!

However, unlike the in-game shop, purchases on the Gaming for Good shop cannot be purchased for your native currency of USD, CAD, EUR, etc. Purchases can only be made for cryptocurrencies PRPS or DUBI.

Take a look at the Pay-To-Play Guide for more on the best Clash of Streamers purchases, and take a look at the PRPS & DUBI Guide for more info on the cryptocurrencies as well as how to get them.

After you've made purchases and accumulated a decent amount of Crypton, you are free to purchase as many duplicate ability-sets as you want.

Additionally, you could also equip the Streamer Crypto Hodler and Pet Crypto Hodler abilities on some (or all) of your active pets to earn even more Crypton passively. 

Of course, this all depends on how much you actually care about generating passive Crypton. As a pay-to-play player, you have many different options to follow, and since you can probably afford to buy a ton of duplicate ability-sets, you may not need to enable any passive Crypton pet abilities.

It's completely up to you to decide what to do!

Overall, to maximize your passive Crypton generation as a pay-to-play player, you should loosely follow these rules:

  1. Purchase your streamer ability-set with the most duplicates (in the Spellbook) as much as possible.
  2. Purchase your pet ability-set with the most duplicates (in the Spellbook) as much as possible, after enabling the Pet Trainer ability on your active pets.
  3. Equip the Streamer Crypto Hodler and Pet Crypto Hodler on any of your active pets if you want to increase your passive Crypton generation even further.

By purchasing as many duplicate ability-sets as possible and by using the passive Crypton pet passive abilities, you'll earn an absurd amount of passive Crypton in the long run as a pay-to-play player.

Receiving Passive Crypton

Once you have setup your passive Crypton stream, you should start noticing yourself receiving Crypton in the Mailbox at random periods of time.

However, you will only receive Crypton passively on the days that you actually play Clash of Streamers!

You will not receive passive Crypton on days that you do not play the game. Therefore, make sure you are an active player and open Clash of Streamers daily to get the possibility of earning passive Crypton on that specific day.

The frequency at which you get Crypton will completely depend on how high your Crypton generation percentage is relative to other players.

The higher your passive Crypton generation, the more often you will receive Crypton in the mail!

By following the strategies found in this guide, you'll probably end up earning quite a bit of free passive Crypton.
