Hi everyone and welcome to the AMA on Forum Crypto Moonlight Official Group We’re honored to host an Ask-Me-Anything session with @gemieofficial 😊
welcome to our community Mr.John
Mr Jhon F: Hello everyone! This is John, the co-founder of Gemie! Thank you so much for having me today!
I will explain a little about the AMA segment this time,
Segment 1: Project introduction
Segment 2: Question Twitter
Segment 3: Live Question
SESSION PROJECT INTRODUCTION
Q1, Can you explain a little about the Gemie project to our community? And how does Gemie work on the blockchain?
Mr Jhon F: Absolutely! First of all nice to meet you everyone, I’m very glad to be here to provide you all an insight to our project. Gemie aspires to be Asia’s top entertainment metaverse, where users will be able to have meaningful connections with their favourite celebrities without geographical limitations. Fans from all over the world can engage with their favourite celebrities and IPs by moving between virtual planets in the Gemie metaverse while enjoying Gemie NFT’s exclusive benefits.
With the rise of blockchain technology, there are more industries welcoming the concept of creating a presence in the metaverse. The metaverse is gaining traction on a regular basis, and it is expected to take over the global economy in the future. Gemie views this as an opportunity to increase online and
offline fan engagement by offering a unique immersive, gamified experience along with all kinds of digital assets.
Q2, What conditions make you have a thought and idea to create the Gemie project?
Mr Jhon F: Right! My background is in entertainment (I’ve been in the space for more than 10 years) and my partner comes from a media and gaming background (previously founded an award winning gaming company). Once when we were talking about the future of entertainment in Asia, we identified that the metaverse presented many opportunities to more closely link fans with talent and thus decided to co-found Gemie together. Western celebrities such as Snoop Dogg have already established themselves in the metaverse. Despite the fact that more celebrities are taking advantage of the metaverse’s expansion, the Asian entertainment industry still lacks a strong presence. Gemie intends to fill this gap by becoming Asia’s leading entertainment metaverse to celebrate the talent here in our native countries as well as share it with the rest of the world.
Over the last few month’s we’ve put together an experienced team of tech, design, business development, and marketing individuals to build our mission of providing Asian artists with the tools and resources to dream and create in the metaverse!!
Q3, How can I join the Gemie and become a member of the community and benefit the Gemie?
Mr Jhon F: Our platform is in development and will be launching soon in different stages – so in the meantime you can join our community by following us on social media and joining the conversation there. We frequently share alpha and sneak peeks with our Twitter and Telegram communities ahead of time, so I’d recommend being active on these particular channels. You can also participate in online events like this AMA (we have more coming soon as we lead up to a big announcement in about a month or so)!
Once our platform is up and running, Gemie users will have exclusive benefits to being a member of our community – users will have unique admissions to some of the largest concerts, after parties, hangouts, and movie premieres once our NFTs are released and the Gemie metaverse is launched.
Q4, present in the market while growing cannot escape having competitors how do you outperform those competitors?
Mr Jhon F: That’s right – with the increasing popularity of the metaverse, there are indeed more of other metaverse projects out there. However Gemie is the first and only metaverse platform dedicated entirely to the Asian entertainment industry by far.
Gemie’s objective is to briong the Asian entertainment business tot he metaverse by establishign a venue where peopel can communciate meaningfully with their favourite celeberities regardless of their location. Giving back ownership to artists, honoring Asian talents and culture, and rethinking the fan experience for the entertainment fans are the core ideals that push our team forward.
We intend to work closely with each of our celebrity and enteratainment partners to custom-create Gemie’s planets and NFTs that will provide the community wiht the best possible experience and utility. Our NFTs will be wearablea and useful in the Gemie metaverse, with special online and offline features- more on that will be shared when our webstore opens!!!
Q5, Can you tell us, has Gemie been audited? as we know, smart contacts are vulnerable to hacks, and to carry out an audit costs a lot of money. So can you tell us a little about that, because investors need to know?
Mr Jhon F: Good question – We haven’t gone through the audit procedure yet since Gemie is still in the pre-launch phase. Auditing is an essential component of Gemie’s overall product development and we are still in the process of developing our platform and writing our smart contracts. Before releasing anything to the public, we plan to have at least two third-party audit businesses verify all of our scripts and smart contracts before anything is public. We take this very seriously as we want to ensure that all of our users are able to fully enjoy Gemie’s metaverse experience. We will keep our community updated on this!
SESSION QUESTION FROM TWITTER
Q1, From @mdbigguys What things should be considered in using the Gemie platform for those who are new to the Metaverse?
Mr Jhon F: We welcome all users to Gemie whether you are a crypto native, or are new to the Web3/NFT/ Metaverse space. To access Gemie, no specific hardware is required besides a PC/Macbook that can access to the Internet. Our goal is to dream up a virtual world for our users to explore and enjoy by connecting with their favourite celebrities, entertainment IPs and other fans.
The crypto world can be intimidating, but we don’t want Gemie to be. In future posts, we will break down how to log in and access our platform, how to set up and wallet and purchase our NFTs, etc. We’re all learning in this space and have to start somewhere – if you ever have any questions, feel free to reach out to our team in Telegram chats. We haven’t announced publicly yet, but we are in the process of building a Discord server for our community! We can’t wait to chat with you all here and get to know each other better!
Q2, from @ceciliasung25 What was the biggest problem while you were building the Gemie project and how did you overcome it?
Mr Jhon F: Since the crypto world develops at a breakneck pace and is continuously changing, the main challenge for us would be time constraints. We want to share our ideas and work with the world as quickly as possible, but our team also prioritizes quality and value-add.
The Gemie team is working hard to develop every aspect of our metaverse from scratch, including avatars, rooms, NFTs, planet features, and so on. We sincerely wish to provide our users with a life-changing experience. The best way to deal with this is to put our noses to the grindstone and create something we’re pleased with while sharing as much of the process and elements as possible with our community.
Q3, from @zhaochangyou For project development, the main priority is to have sufficient funds. Is your team financially able to carry out this project? Do you have partnerships with venture capital firms or investment firms?
Mr Jhon F: Very good question, and we understand that sufficient funding and support from quality investors is crucial to building a metaverse project. In mid-February, we announced the completion of our latest round of funding – $3.8 million. We are thrilled to have the support of all of our investors, many of whom are VC firms with crypto expertise. With their help, we have accelerated the production of our project and this funding has allowed us to construct a more sophisticated and high-level metaverse since we have brought on more experienced team members. You can find the full press release here: https://twitter.com/Gemie_Official/status/1494317789150330880
Alongside our investors, we also have a lot of partners in the crypto, metaverse, and entertainment space who help us in a variety of ways including marketing, business strategy, and connecting us with the relevant industry experts and partners.
On the IDO/IEO side, our incubator Newman Labs is well-connected with top-tier launchpads and major exchanges, therefore we are confident that Gemie will have a successful public launch when the time comes.
Q4, from @Masnun41 Can you provide some progress on your Roadmap and what results Gemie has achieved so far?
Mr Jhon F: To give a bit of update on the platform development, we plan to launch the presale of our Gemie rooms and web gateway of our online store in Q2 of 2022. At the same time, our team is reaching agreement with various Asian celebrities and entertainment figures in order to locate the best partners for Gemie. We are going to announce our first celebrity collaboration very soon! Stay tuned!
As for our metaverse, we are targeting to launch it in Q4 of this year, but the exact date has not been announced. You can follow us on social for the latest updates and see a more detailed roadmap of our development on Gemie.io!
Q5, from @Andreas04567388 What are the advantages of Virtual Room at Gemie? How can I use Virtual Room in Gemie?
Mr Jhon F: The Gemie metaverse will be a virtial world filled with public spaces like concert halls, town squares and so on so that you can connect with celebs and other fans. We also wanted to provide our users with private spaces for when they want to personalize and hangout online with friends. To solve this, we decided to create Gemie virtual rooms.
Gemie rooms will come in different sizes and are intended to be a virtual space for our users to to hang out with friends and customize with their own Gemie NFTs. As mentioned previously, Gemie NFTs will be wearable/useable in the Gemie metaverse and will come with online and offline benefits. One example would be a Gemie poster doubling as wall decor in your Gemie room while also functioning as your ticket to a real world movie premiere! We’ve already started creating items for these personal spaces, but if you have any ideas, please let our team know!
SESSION LIVE QUESTION
Q1. What makes GemieDao different from others? For starters – we are aiming to be a completely decentralized autonomous organization (DAO) – we value freedom of speech
Mr Jhon F: The Gemie DAO is definitely a big part of our project – we value the freedom for our users to participate in decisions. Gemie token/NFT holders will have the right to participate the decision making process. We are developing a Gemie DAO where the users with certain NFTs or Gemie token are able to vote or nominate on certain decisions regarding their favorite celebrities. For instance Token or NFT holders can vote on decisions of the upcoming events held by their favourite stars, or holders will be able to nominate their favourite stars to be included in certain projects.
Q2. Can you tell me good reasons that your project is here for the long run and has a real utility that will increase the demand for the token in the future?
Mr Jhon F: Good questions. We have put in an enormous amount of resouces in development the whole Gemie platform including the Avatars, Gemie rooms and the Gemie Metaverse – We are also backed by some of the most credible investors in the crypto space, which also provided us a lot of support in terms of marketing and business development. As mentioned Gemie has reached partnerships with some of the major players in the entertainment industry in the region. This allows Gemie to bring top-tier K-pop stars, blockbuster franchises, KOLs, and other entertainment brands to the Gemie metaverse – we are here for the long haul and BUIDL! let me give you some examples of our token utilities for reference:
– Events Access(ex. Access to live concerts, movie premieres, after parties, meet-ups)
– Perks (ex. Exclusive waitlist, discounts, priority in ticket sales)
– Real world items (ex. Purchase of NFT comes with physical movie or music video props and other memorabilia)
– Gemie DAO (ex. Participate in decision-making process regarding collaborations)
Q3. What made the Gemie team decide on NFT, Metaverse, and Celebrities as the project’s core? why did you choose the name Gemie in the first place? If There has to be a backstory tell us
Mr Jhon F: Thanks for the question! The Gemie metaverse and NFTs, we think, will empower the entertainment industry’s next wave of expansion. As we mentioned before, Asian celebrities have huge potential embracing in the metaverse, Gemie strives to equip Asian celebrities with the tools and experience they need to create and interact in the metaverse!
The concept of gems inspired the name Gemie. Gems are valuable, take a long time to create, and are prized as personal items. We hope that, through Gemie, both celebrities and fans will be able to hold valued goods that produce priceless memories, and that they will be able to proudly show these memories in the metaverse or on social media, as if they were a collection of jewels.
Furthermore, jewels exist in a variety of shapes and sizes, and no two gems are alike; each one is unique. They can be utilized as rings, pendants, and decorations, just like Gemie utility-focused NFTs, which may be used in a variety of ways in the metaverse.
Q4. How can I join whitelist? Is there any special benefits for early investor? Is there any requirements to hold any token ?
Mr Jhon F: This is the question i got asked a lot – let me share an exciting news with you all here! Gemie is going to hold our IRO (Initial Room Offering) very soon – around late Apr – mid May – we will announce our whitelist instructions very soon – and we are also holding number of whitelist partnerships with some of the biggest projects out there!
