Cyber Galz NFT — Telegram AMA — January 19
On Wednesday, January 19, we had the pleasure to welcome to our Telegram chat:
Eddie, CEO and Project Lead
We asked him questions about the development of Cyber Galz NFT.
Some sentences have been slightly edited for readability but the meaning has been conserved.
Cybergalz is a gynoid NFT content platform for cyberpunk and sci-fi enthusiasts, and the team behind it is committed to building a sci-fi metaverse playground that provides various forms of content, from digital art collections, comics, films, to a P2E game.
The first generation of Cyber Galz NFTs consists of 9,999 digital art pieces with over 10 attribute types that are categorized into four rarity rankings.
Cyber Galz follows the values of a culture of decentralization and voluntary participation of people, agreeing hugely with the principles of ‘A Cypherpunk’s Manifesto’ presented by Erich Hughes.
The project is self-funded as it aims to create and develop the Cyber Galz NFT community bursting with creativity and fun against VC’s commercial intentions. Holders of the first generation of the Cyber Galz NFTs will get all-access passes to the NFT content platform, and community benefits.
From digital art to comics, films and games, the Galz will each have individual stories and content under their own name in the Cyber Galz metaverse.
Q — Ayeley from GAINS: Please introduce yourself. Tell us about your crypto journey
A — Eddie from Cyber Galz: I am Eddie, a.k.a. Crypto Nyang, the project lead and CEO of Cyber Galz. My crypto journey started in 2016, which means I’ve gone through the ups and downs of the market. In addition to the Cyber Galz project, I am also leading my own Telegram community titled Crypto Nyang’s Announcement with 10k subscribers.
The channel started last year and has grown so fast. I promise the subscribers are 100% organic users 😉 It’s so exciting to see the industry grows quite fast for the better and so do investors!
About Cyber Galz NFT
Q — Ayeley from GAINS: Cool. What is the Cyber Galz NFT project about in a few simple sentences?
A — Eddie from Cyber Galz: Cyber Galz is a gynoid NFT content and P2E game platform for cyberpunk and sci-fi enthusiasts. We want to build a sci-fi metaverse playground that provides various forms of Cyber Galz content from digital art collections, comics, films, and P2E games. One of our Cyber Galz NFT features includes customizable and changeable functions, which means the users can add and remove attributes (we call them Galz’ items or parts.) as per their preference.
This will allow our users to make their NFT more unique and encourage them to put Galz NFT on their SNS profile photo. Galz NFT is also minted on Immutable X, the ETH layer 2 solutions. This will enable our users to enjoy close-to-zero gas fee minting and trading on Immutable X.
Q — Ayeley from GAINS: This sounds really interesting. How long has the project been in development
A — Eddie from Cyber Galz: It has been in development for about half a year till now 🙂
Q — Twitter user @MmgvsTodos: You are planning to launch their NFT on Immutable X, Ethereum’s layer 2 protocol. So, can you explain why you decided to work specifically with these layer 2 solutions? Users, who want to mint NFTs can decide whether to do it on these layer 2 solutions or directly on Ethereum?
A — Eddie from Cyber Galz: We slightly changed our plans for minting to use ETH and IMX together for minting, which means that our users (excluding Gleam event whitelist winners) can decide ETH or IMX for their mint.
The reason that we adopt Immutable X for minting and trading NFTs is the gas fee. As you know, gas fees on ETH is crazy these days. Minting and trading on Immutable X will save gas fees almost to zero cost while providing speed and scalability benefits.
You can say OpenSea integration would be a hassle as OpenSea does not support IMX yet. Until OpenSea supports Immutable X, Galz masters can transfer their Galz on IMX to ETH via the IMX-layer 1 bridge so that they can integrate their Galz collections with the OpenSea marketplace. Please check details for Galz minting on IMX and ETH! This article is not that techy so you would enjoy it 😉
Q — Twitter user @meml1997: The Cyber Galz’s art and the creation of each NFT amazed me because of how beautifully done each one of these female humanoids has been made. So, can you tell us more about the artist that is behind this incredible art? Also, how did you come up with such a cool concept art?
A — Eddie from Cyber Galz: Wow! We’re glad that you love our Galz artworks! Our creator, Jak-ka, is working on artworks almost 24/7, sleeping only 3–4 hours to make all of them 😄
Actually, he is a well-known webcomics creator in Korea, presenting his comics on one of Korea’s largest webcomics platforms. Galz’s webcomics prologue was released already. You can check it out here.
The next episodes will come out after Galz minting events.
Q — Telegram user Topind: What is the fee charged to change the appearance of Galz upon the user preference?
A — Eddie from Cyber Galz: Well, when you change your Galz items on Immutable X, you don’t need to pay a lump sum amount of gas fee.
Q — Telegram user Memo: I read that you plan to release two Galz NFT P2E games this year, but can you really tell us more about those games? Are these the same theme? Or will they be completely different games?
A — Eddie from Cyber Galz: Well, the detailed info for our P2E game is to be announced in a few weeks as we want to include some WOW points together on the announcements. However, as previously mentioned, the game quality will be amazing. The game theme will be fully soaked with cyberpunk moods though you may meet some different moods of your Galz NFT in the game 😉
Q — Telegram user Krish: We know that there are a lot of cyberpunk enthusiasts in the world, Is the Cyber Galz platform only for cyberpunk enthusiasts?
A — Eddie from Cyber Galz: Hell no!!!! We welcome every kind of freaks, geeks, and otaku. You know we have another version of me inside. You are also welcome if you are 100% normal. Just join and let’s share fun metaverse experiences together.
Q — Telegram user Milex: I read that all NFT data will be stored on Arweave Platform. What are the main benefits of choosing Arweave Platform?
A — Eddie from Cyber Galz: We apply Arweave to mitigate vulnerability risks related to a centralized cloud system. All files and metadata of Cyber Galz NFTs (including codes, NFT properties, and images) are uploaded on Arweave’s permanent data storage, thereby Galz NFTs will never be at risk of disappearing and the holders will never face a 404 error message.
Q — Twitter user @AugustK95: Could you tell us about the impact cyber Galz seeks to achieve with its games and its ecosystem in general? Will it attract otaku lovers to this kind of technology and games?
A — Eddie from Cyber Galz: Besides being a team of crypto enthusiasts/investors with our own investment portfolio, we’re also a team of professional freaks in video/computer games as well. Sam, a.k.a. Muss, is also an influencer in Korea with his own group of 9,500 subscribers. When you check out his channel, you will see hundreds of posts about recent P2E games including winning tactics.
He’s this close to taking his career path as an e-sport player and he still loves playing video/computer games, giving up sleep. LOL!
As we experience tens of P2E games, we have picked up insights for sustainable token economies to retain and attract game players while providing quality games that can beat existing games in traditional game industries. Sharing our game dev portfolio for your reference! wait the pic is not being sent lol
Q — Ayeley from GAINS: What role will the token play?
A — Eddie from Cyber Galz: As previously mentioned, we plan to launch our tokens for the Cyber Galz content platform and P2E games. Detail info on Cyber Galz tokens will be announced in February at the earliest in accordance with our whitepaper release.
Aside from the tokens, Galz NFTs have their roles too in our ecosystem. Since Galz NFTs are awesome, users are proud to use them for their PFP 😉 Additionally, Galz masters can get all-access passes to the NFT content platform and community benefits. Galz NFT also will be used not only as the proof of eligibility to earn exclusive item drops upon content launch, but also as in-game characters for Galz’s to-be-launched P2E game.
Q — Ayeley from GAINS: And did you raise funds so far? If so, how did you handle them? Are you planning to do any future raises?
A — Eddie from Cyber Galz: Actually, our project is self-funded. The reason that we didn’t raise funds from VCs or other big named investors so far is because we want to develop our products in a way that we wanted — the fun and exciting metaverse playground for otaku!!!
Besides me, all of our team members are crypto & NFT enthusiasts with their own investment philosophy and portfolio and a half of them are KOLs from Korea with their own groups, 30K subscribers in total. This means that we know what market participants want and how to make feasible and sustainable growth of this project. I believe our team’s experiences in the ups and downs of the crypto journey will be great assets to drive this projected growth!
Now we’re ready to present our product of beautiful and unique Cyber Galz NFTs, we’ll hold the NFT sales event, starting from the genesis mint on 23 Jan followed by presale and public sale in early Feb.
We’re also planning to launch our P2E game in Q2 or Q3 at the latest, which means Cyber Galz tokens will be generated. Regarding the token launch, we’d like to invite investors to join our journey to create the phenomenal community-driven metaverse playground.
Q — Ayeley from GAINS: What exciting updates have you achieved so far, and what should we expect in the next weeks and months?
A — Eddie from Cyber Galz: Our genesis minting is taking place on 23 Jan, 12 pm UTC. Secondary sales and public sales will be held in early February. You may as well save the date as we have a couple of exciting announcements regarding our business development!
The P2E game will be launched in Q2 or Q3 and we’re also holding some exciting on-/off-line events for Galz masters as well as our community members.
