GemUni — Telegram AMA — January 13
On Thursday, January 13, we had the pleasure to welcome to our Telegram chat:
Cassie Nguyen, Founder and CEO
We asked her questions about the development of GemUni.
Some sentences have been slightly edited for readability but the meaning has been conserved.
GemUni is creating a decentralized universe of casual games where everyone can participate in fun, easy, free-to-play, and play-to-earn games. Built on Binance Smart Chain, GemUni intends to combine the experiences of diverse gaming communities with innovative blockchain capabilities.
Immersing in GemUni, users can engage in multiple gameplay modes while monetizing their experiences through gaming platform awards. They can also explore, browse, and search for NFTs by game categories and seasonal collections in GemUni marketplace to trade their favorite ones.
GemUni comprises two ecosystems, GENI and GENIX:
Users can earn GENI tokens, make more money with the DeFi mechanics, and trade NFT items on the NFT marketplace in the GENI ecosystem. GENI token is the project’s key cryptocurrency, allowing gamers to purchase GENI passes and other NFT assets to access gaming networks.
In the GENIX ecosystem, users can enjoy thousands of addictive casual games and earn rewards from two systems: casual gaming platform and signature gaming platform. GENIX token is the in-game cryptocurrency, allowing users to buy game tickets to access these gaming sites.
Soon, GemUni aspires to become the “Decentralized Steam” for play-to-earn NFT games, a one-stop-shop for outstanding GameFi experiences for everyone.
Q — Ayeley from GAINS: Let’s begin with a brief intro of yourself. Tell us about your crypto journey so far
A — Cassie from GemUni: I’m Cassie — CEO & Founder at GemUni — a decentralized NFTs & Gaming Platform for Play to earn. I have had 8-year experience in the fields of AI, Big Data, Gaming Software tech startups, and enterprises. I am also a frequent crypto trader and a supporter of global crypto projects.
It is my honor to be here to introduce GemUni — a promising project that my team and I are passionately working on, and having been supported by global backers including the “Mighty Eagle” of Rovio (the famous Angry Birds games)!
Q — Ayeley from GAINS: How long have you been working on GemUni?
A — Cassie from GemUni: Official launch of the project was in Oct 2021, however, our core team have been working on it months before that:)
Q — Ayeley from GAINS: What is the GemUni project about in a few simple sentences?
A — Cassie from GemUni: GemUni is building a Decentralized NFTs Gaming Platform for Play To Earn for everyone around the world to engage in Fun, Easy, and Play to Earn Games. Users can enjoy diverse addictive Casual Games & Signature Games while monetizing their experiences with gaming platform rewards and NFTs transactions.
Q — Ayeley from GAINS: Are all the games on the gaming platform developed by your team? Or, other game developers can upload their games on the platform?
A — Cassie from GemUni: Nope, not all of the games are developed by our team. We work with our partner game studios to bring their games on the platform as well. That’s why we’re planning to have 1000+ Casual Games and Signature Games (bigger games) coming on GemUni platform in 2022
Q — Twitter user @Ryan32355272: GemUni recently announced the upgrade of your GENI Passes with new game modes and higher earnings. Could you give us a more specific breakdown of the changes you have introduced in this aspect of your platform and the benefits this will bring to users?
A — Cassie from GemUni: Definitely, we have upgraded our Passes and Play to Earn mechanics to give players more benefits.
1. GENI Pass NFTs:
— Stone Pass is no longer a Free-to-Play Pass but given full benefits like others, including daily game tickets to play and earn in all modes, at a very affordable price. Those who owned our Stone Passes for free will definitely benefit from it.
— Topaz, Citrine & Ruby Passes are higher-level passes than Stone, thereby more game tickets to play and better chances to earn in EXP & GENIX Earning modes.
— Diamond Pass is the most powerful Pass in GemUni’s Casual Gaming Platform, which grants access to maximum returns. Though players do not have unlimited PvP tickets anymore (because they do not have to deposit GENIX to the Battling Pool), they will have better chances to earn higher rates in every single mode with the new model.
2. Play to Earn mechanics The new Play2Earn mechanics are divided into EXP Earning and GENIX Earning. In which, EXP is the Experience Score earned through playing games. The more users play, the more EXP they earn. Players can also earn EXP in the GENIX Earning mode, with the scores corresponding to the total amount of their earned GENIX (in-game currency) in each match. — EXP Earning Users can play to get familiar with the games and earn EXP, but cannot earn GENIX. In this mode, players can only join in High Score, 1 vs 1, Team vs Team, and Battle Royale modes. They can create a simulated PvP room (1 vs 1, Team vs Team, Battle Royale) and need to deposit EXP to get used to the gameplay.
- GENIX Earning Users can play and earn EXP and GENIX in all gameplay modes, including PvE (High Score and Leaderboard) and PvP (1 vs 1, Team vs Team, and Battle Royale). In PvE Leaderboard, only Top 1 users in each game’s daily leaderboards will be rewarded. In PvP, users no longer have to deposit GENIX to the Battling Pool. Each mode (1 vs 1, Team vs Team, Battle Royale) will have different gameplays. The individual or team that wins each battle will receive the corresponding reward. The reward for Battle Royale mode is now much bigger than before!
Besides, we have automated the Gaming Challenges and Tournaments, so that our players will be able to enjoy more activities on our platform:)
Q — Twitter user @BaitulShuvo: Where can I buy GENI Pass NFT? Is it possible to buy in secondary markets?
At the end of January, you can purchase directly from GemUni’s NFT Marketplace, which will be much faster and easier for trading and you can enjoy our defi mechanics for NFTs there in the near future as well. Stay tuned!
Q — Telegram user Steffi Reguera🎀: I read that GemUni can rent out NFT GENI Passes to other players to benefit from their play2earn earnings. So can you explain exactly how the concept of NFT leasing on your platform works? How beneficial is it to the lessor and the lessee?
A — Cassie from GemUni: I will answer this 2nd Question about leasing:) This is a very good question as you catch our special point! The GENI Pass NFTs holder can lease the Pass to other players by setting the profit sharing percentage on our platform and listing the leasing offer. When the players (lessees) play and earn profit from the games, the profit will be distributed between the lessor and lessee.
For the lessors, as one person and own multiple passes, if they don’t use all of the pass NFT (assets) then they can lease to make extra profit. For lessees, they do not need to purchase a pass to play and earning from there!
Q — Twitter user @Carolinex421: GemUni Has leaderboard System, The top 10 highest-scoring users in the daily leaderboard of each game will earn rewards. Is This leaderboard Will be Different In Every Levels? beacuse You Have Five Different Levels in Game! If I daily Gaine Top score Can I Earn Daily Rewards?
A — Cassie from GemUni: We have upgraded our Play to Earn mechanics so that only Top 1 users in the daily leaderboards of each game will earn rewards in Leaderboard.
The winning rewards are the same among GENI Pass holders (Diamond, Ruby, Citrine, Topaz, Stone). However, the higher Pass levels, the more daily game tickets. Therefore, users will have more chances to earn better with higher-level Passes.
Besides Leaderboard, users can play in the High Score PvE play mode to earn daily rewards as well!
Q — Telegram user The Curious 👀: Will we have the possibility to create tournaments with other players within each GemUni game?
A — Cassie from GemUni: Yes, players can definitely join our PvP modes (1 vs 1, team vs team, and battle royale) to play with other friends, families, or other gamers around the world! Besides, GemUni will host gaming Challenges and Tournaments on our gaming platform for users to participate in playing and earning together!
Q — Ayeley from GAINS: What role does the token play in the ecosystem?
A — Cassie from GemUni: GemUni comprises two ecosystems, GENI token, and Reward tokens:
1. In the GENI ecosystem, users can earn more with our varied DeFi mechanics, as well as trade NFT items on GemUni’s NFT marketplace. GENI token is the main project cryptocurrency, enabling users to buy GENI Passes to access gaming networks and purchase other NFT assets.
2. In the Reward ecosystem, users can play and earn from two reward systems: Casual Gaming Platform and Signature Gaming Platform.
— In the Casual Gaming Platform, users can enjoy hundreds of addictive casual games (thousands in the near future), while monetizing their experiences with gaming platform rewards. GENIX token is our in-game cryptocurrency, which allows users to earn rewards, buy additional game tickets, and purchase in-game tools.
— In the Signature Gaming Platform, users will gain access to unique Signature Games that are built separately to enhance gaming experiences and maximize earning opportunities. Each Signature Game will also have its own token to reward players.
$GENI can be converted back and forth with $GENIX and other reward tokens, making it much more convenient for users to Play to Earn.
Q — Telegram user Maleficent: Hack attacks are so often happening and this scares many investors to invest in new projects. Please tell us about the security of GemUni. Did you already have an audit to be more sure about your security?
