Mike: Good Morning/Afternoon/Evening to all the rocking SYZYGY community members!! SYZYGY has brought for you guys another astounding project here — #GEMS.
With us today we have — Andy, Chief Executive Officer at GEMS, along with him we have — Mike, Head of Product at GEMS!
Welcome Andy and Mike to SYZYGY! Truly honored to have you guys here!
MikePang: Thanks for having us! Glad to be here
Andy : Hi everyone my name is Andy. I’m the co-founder and CEO of GEMS, which is an Esports 3.0 aggregator platform within an O2O ecosystem.
GEMS propels Esports into 3.0 by integrating Gamefi, Metaverse, and Socialfi elements, and leverages on its founding partners’ chain of Esports hotels.
Mike: We always feel so awesome to meet literally #gem projects here! :D We hope you enjoy the session today! We’ll get started then today! We have few questions from our end first, then we will move on to #Twitter picks and Community round.
So, to begin with, it would be great if you can share a bit about what GEMS is and a bit of background about yourself! Andy has been quite generous in sharing it with the community, we love his enthusiasm, like all of our SYZYGY members, Mike, we would love to know about you too! ☺️
Andy: Allow me to do a quick intro. My background has always been in the Esports, tech, and hotel industries. I have 20 years of experience in the IT and Esports industry. I believe GEMS would become the ultimate destination for gamers that integrates the young population into the new sharing economy.
I might be one of the non-veteran in the blockchain industry but I have a strong belief in the blockchain being the next blue ocean for esports and that’s why I’m doing this great project with a great team!
MikePang: I believe Andy hit the nail on the head, GEMS plans to become the next biggest NFT Social Sharing platform. Introducing myself a little too, I’ve been in the blockchain industry for several years now mostly in the hospitatilty blockchain sector. Now at GEMS as the Head of product my aim and goal is to provide the GEMS platform for the future of Esports 3.0
Mike :Wow!! Truly Terrific guys! 20 Years Andy! that is truly an established person to lead a gem project — #GEM! And Mike — man that’s some vision — future of Esports 3.0! Loved to know about you guys here!
So, my next question is…
Can you guys explain to our community about your project and what do you think is the biggest component of your project?
Andy: Of course! GEMS stands for GameFi. Esports. Metaverse. SocialFi.
GEMS core business pillars include an NFT Rental, DeFi Union that introduce multiple payment models and loans to make expensive NFTs available for everyone; FanFi Studio, a cradle to nurture future gamefi talents; Other awesome features like P2E (Play-to-Earn) Arena and DAO GUILD aim to bring players together to earn via blockchain games.
Mike: Oh Wow! You guys keep on impressing us! That full form actually puts all angles of your offerings right it place!
Alright, my next one -
More people are talking about the concept of Gamefi and metaverse, what makes your project so special from the other project?
Andy: Indeed. GEMS is proudly backed by LABS Group X Arena Esports Hotel X Game One, which is working together to expand our business in operating Esports hotels. We hope GEMS will be able to own 50 offline touchpoints (owed hotels, hotel partnerships) by year 3.
Beside being all of the above. GEMS is the next Game Store just like Apps & Play Store where we build & host digital distribution via online and offline for hosting final esports tournament using blockchain technologies in our partner’s venue.
Mike: Superb backing must say! And I specially loved the roadmap of 50 offline touchpoints by year 3! This is something that would definitely be looked forward to!
So a few more from our end and then we move to the best #Twitter Picks.
As you mentioned the concept of #GEMS is unique, I am sure that the community is also curious about the O2O presence part as it is quite new to us. Is there any interesting plan for this segment?
Andy: This is good one..Looks like this is the day I reveal everything…we will be releasing the blockchain gaming tournament. Which on 2022 Q4, the Play-to Earn (P2E) Arena Esports Hotel will be live as well as our offline expansion plan to expand to 6–8 Esports hotels in SEA.
Mike: All the gamers out there in the @Community — Definitely look out for the gaming tournament! Awesome!! Couple of more then we move to our #Twitter picks.
We have seen the technical roadmap from the website. Could you please further explain it to us?
Andy: I will leave this to my Head Of Product: Mike to respond.
Mike: @MrMikePang — Over to you buddy! 😁
MikePang: Glady! With the vision of intergrading GameFi, Metaverse, and SocialFi within an Online to Offline ecosystem and a social economy, we are planning to have the mainnet launch in 2022 Q1. In 2022 Q2, our development will focus on the Gamefi, Esports, Metaverse segments. Where we will be releasing the NFT rental subscription with functionality implementation and DAO Guild to offer gamers the opportunity to team up and create an in-game community so gamers will never be alone! In 2022 Q3, our development will focus on the Socialfi segment. To recruit aspiring and empower GameFi gamers and influencers with an all-rounded system, we will be releasing the FanFi Studio, the introduction of blockchain and game coding course for potential KOLs and streamers that are interested in joining the Gamefi, blockchain family. To connect the concept of our O2O presence, we will be also releasing the blockchain gaming tournament. 2022 Q4, the Play-to Earn (P2E) Arena will be live as well as our offline expansion plan to expand to 6–8 Esports hotels!
We are so excited for the launch of the development to share the achievement of our vision and make its dreams come true!
Mike: Very less projects out there come out with such an astounding vision and tech roadmap!! Love to see this and I am sure everyone in the community equally are excited for these tech developments! Ok, the final one comes next and the Host Round gets over 😃
So far with what you have achieved, could you please also share with us what is the major milestone?
Needless to say Andy, these names, be it VCs or ecosystem partners are truly top-tier ones! Definitely this is super cool!
Andy: Hold on Mike…I still have 1 more thing.
Mike: Wow, look forward to! ☺️
Andy: Thanks Mike…this is critical questions:
Over the past month, GEMS have a successful launch also and attracted top-notch and blockchain partners to be part of GEMS like GAINS Associates, Cabin VC, DEXT FORCE, AvStar Capital.
On top of that, we have encountered over 40+ ecosystem partners including GameFi heavyweight players such as Dreams Quest, Project Seed, Solchicks, and many more.
Not to mention, GEMS is currently working with our partners in Southeast Asia, to expand our ambitious hotel network in Singapore, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Cambodia.
We want players to gather teams and battle in competitions in our Esports and GameFi tournaments.
Mike: Alright!! All these details definitely sound so awesome! So now is the time we move to our #Twitter picks round!
@Community — The best one shared with me by #GEMS. Here is the first one-
Twitter Q & A Round
Q1: (@move2kz) How do you plan to spread awareness about your project in countries/regions where English is not spoken well like Indonesia, Vietnam, India, Bangladesh and Iran, do you have local communities for them to make them better understand about your project?
Andy: Thanks @move2kz…surely u have run ASEAN ops in order to ask this…very good question I love to answer:
I spoke about O2O so by leveraging our offline partner’s hotel we are able to eliminate the language barriers issues and collaborate with already our hotel
partner to do esports relates activities and community growth via our esports experience center in all our hotel.
Mike: Cool, let’s move to our next one -
Q2: (@yaroslava_borz) Any project’s community is a valuable resource. How will you convince us that the initiative you’re proposing is long-term? Do you have the funding and a solid team in place to continue developing this project?
Andy: I definitely agreed about some points made here through this questions.
Firstly this project is tied in with partners just like how eco system works. So is almost so difficult and impossible to form such a team with impactful leaders in the market from Hotel, Esports and Blockchain reputable partners. Let alone crafting a platform.
Secondly our top tier eco system partners have been our very close partners and at arm length personal relationship. Some dated as long as 10 years. So alot of moving this project to be successful is coz there is gamer and social needs rather than financially as our main priority.
So by coming forth with the above it does tell u about funding and team resources that we have.
Mike: Now this is true man, almost impossible to form a team with impactful leaders in the market from Hotel, Esports and Blockchain as well — But we are so thrilled that #GEMS as a project is making it work! Impressive!
Alright, the next one -
Q3: (@muinlyreol) Marketing strategy is very important. A product can be established on the market without marketing and promotion, whatever it is good. So what are your plans for this? How will you build strong relationships with communities?
Andy: You are very kind in the question being phrased..thanks for sparing me…..yes you are right…some projects have good stories but ended with bad outcome…we are certainly here to do both good stories with good INCOME. :)
I have developed over 3 complete aggregator system in Esports, FMCG and IT industry. So by being an aggregator means we are leveraging good technology from our eco system partner…..so we will not take 6 years to build a platform but 6 ~ 12 months. Strong relationship for communities have to be well leveraged…it cannot be a 1 way system. We bring “finance” to many different type of community so that end of day…GEMS is the 1-stop destination.
Mike: Good Stories and Good INcome! @muinlyreol — Thank you for this lovely question! We definitely got a good insight of this mantra of #GEMS.
Moving on to the next one guys! Twitter peeps rock ! They are helping us get great details about #GEMS!
Q4: (@imad_clicks ) How many killer features of #GEMS project that makes it ahead of its competitors? Could you tell us 2–3 features ? And What are the plans to educate and raise awareness and adoption among the community to make more people understand about the project easily?
MikePang: My time to shine! Great question! Some of the GEMS features includes: the on chain subscription system, our battle pools and our take on fan tokens bringing a new unique influencer / streaming platform. We are also preparing an extensive Gitbook repository to educate all our new users. Not to mention how to videos and guides built into the platform.
Mike: Amazing Mike!! Gitbook is definitely going to be helpful for all ! Good thought!
Alright, our next one folks -
Q5: (@Tomie_chana) During building your project, did you take into account community feedback and needs? Since it is necessary to popularize your knowledge of cryptocurrencies today, do you have any plans to attract people who do not know about cryptocurrencies and BLOCKCHAIN?
Community is definitely enjoying all those intriguing questions and your response Andy and Mike! @Community — Few more of Twitter ones and we will open up for you guys too!!
Andy: Yes!yes!yes definitely we take feedback 1 by 1 and we have a good enabler: FORUM as part our GEMS to manage such feedback and also other user’s need through here the forum.
Oh gosh…I am loving this community….I have this as part of my closing statement but since is already asked…let me answer then…Through GEMS Academy we have eco system partners and also our own designed in-house courses to ROCKET:
Through our O2O course availability. We understand not all have 1 fav learning style which is why we EMBRACE online and offline methodology to onboard all the above. This will definitely help to attract more people when the above audiences can choose all kinds of learning methodology.
Mike: Alright! So here is one final one from Twitter
Q6: (@Andrew58184012) What innovations has GEMS brought to the DEFI space? How is GEMS changing the new DeFi ecosystem and what are the plans for the next few years?
MikePang: Ultimately GEMS is an eSports NFT Social Sharing Portal and O2O (Online to Offline) Platform. GEMS is an ecosystem with its unique O2O NFT RENTAL & social sharing platform that allows you to: Nurture, grow in the haven of eSports and GameFi. Explore the world of Metaverse and SocialFi , Immerse yourself in a full blockchain gaming experience. We believe that everyone has a gamer inside them. I think this concept and plan alone has us on our toes for the next coming year.
Mike: Well, quite an intense Q&A that was! Thanks Andy and Mike for answering those #TwitterPicks. Now is the time we move to our most high-voltage round — Community Round!
Telegram Q & A Round
MikePang: Great Question @ItsMeGebi ! The platform launcher will be available with a useable NFT Rental. & Subscription based marketplace [DEMO] aimed for early Q1 which will be made online via thegems.gg . As we are a GameFi & Social Sharing platform there are no user restrictions so anyone and everyone may use our platform! That being said our NFT rental platform is the first platform being launched and developed so that we can encourage the gamers inside of you all to adopt the new Esports 3.0 approach.
Q2. Southeast Asia is a very vibrant market and there are many new platforms under development. So what do you think about Southeast Asia and do you have plans to grow there?
Andy: That is also 1 of the reason why we choose SEA. Our offline hotel is firstly operated in Singapore where alot of crypto headquarters are located. So not only we are building a community but also community within itself. SEA have over 360M online population and is over US$100B industry. That is also why the number and spending power of SEA Online population made it more sense to have GEMS eco system build across SEA. Our partners have massive experience in building community SEA.
Community, Culture and Connections are also our partner’s main strength in building GEM via a eco-system.
Thank Andy and Mike!
With this we come to an end to our AMA with #GEMS. It’s been such a pleasure to host you guys here Andy and Mike.
