Monkeypox is a DNA virus while SARS-COV-2 is an RNA virus; this means that the monkeypox genome is much longer (200,000 base pairs vs 30,000 base pairs). The current outbreak has 50 SNPs different from a virus sequenced a few years ago ( Coincidentally, Omicron also has 50 SNPs different from the reference virus. So same amount of change in absolute numbers, but a much smaller amount in terms of the percentage of the genome. 

Here's the phylogenetic tree, if you're interested:
