SESSION 1 ( INTRODUCTION )
Q1. Can you introduce a little bit about yourself and your team to our audience?
First off, I’d like to thank you all for your interest in our project Gemie! My name is John and I co-founded Gemie together with my partner Sunny. My background is in entertainment, having worked more than 10 years in the industry. My partner comes from a media and gaming background, previously founding an award winning gaming company. The rest of our team is made up of extremely talented designers, developers, biz dev leads, and marketers. With the support of our experienced tech and marketing team, and the enormous support from our incubator, Newman Labs and our investors, we are able to work on our goals at an aggressive pace.
Q2. Please explain what Gemie are and what’s some interesting stuff from your project?
SURE! Our project- Gemie aims at creating a leading metaverse for the entertainment industry in Asia, where users will be able to have meaningful interactions with their favorite celebrities without geographical limitations.
Essentially fans from all over the world will be able to interact with their favorite stars and IPs by traveling through different virtual planets and enjoy exclusive perks with utility-focused NFTs. Fans can also show support by purchasing Gemie licensed digital collectibles.
Here’s some interesting story about why we name Gemie itself… The name Gemie is inspired by the idea of gems. Gems are precious, take time to form, and are cherished as personal belongings. Through Gemie, we hope that both celebrities and fans can hold cherished items that create precious memories, and to be able to display these memories proudly in the metaverse or on social media, like a collection of gems. Hope y’all love the backstory of Gemie!
Q3. Can you explain what Gemie has done from the roadmap, and what are Gemie plans for the future?
Absolutely! We are having the rather aggressive year of 2022 – a lot going on. Here’s a bit of an update on Gemie’s development:
1. BIG NEWS! The presale of the Gemie rooms will be launching in Q2, 2022 – we are so excited about the launch and we will keep you guys updated on the mint date and details in Discord.
2. The web gateway of our online store is also in Q2 of 2022 (very soon, stay tuned!).
At the same time, our team is meeting with various Top-tier Asian celebrities and artists in order to locate the best partners for Gemie.
We do have a detailed plan in terms of future innovations, the main one is that we will be developing access on mobile devices which is happening hopefully next year! For a detailed roadmap, please visit our official website- www.gemie.io
Well, for those of you who are interested in joining the Gemie token seller, please read the details on the Gemie discord.
yessss huge plans!!! thank you for that!
SESSION 2 ( QUESTION FROM TWITTER )
Q1. Not only Gemie but also a lot of projects are currently looking at metavere and NFT games. So, my question is What benefits does the players have in playing Metaverse Games? And what will encourage them to enjoy it instead of traditional games? https://twitter.com/hoan26571098/status/1516762393120063491?s=21&t=iq2okkux77TTX-kTe8OYqw
Nice question! I personally think that there are different benefits to playing metaverse games and traditional games, I don’t think one needs to completely replace the other. I’m a big gamer myself and I think the biggest differentiator between metaverse/gamefi and traditional games is that the in-game items truly belong to you. Depending on the game, there can also be a play-to-earn aspect, an element of resale ability in terms of in-game items, etc.
For Gemie in particular, we aren’t necessarily building out an extensive metaverse game, but more of an extended reality that has gamified elements. We hope that Gemie will be an extension of our users’ physical lives, another place to hang out and make new friends, attend events, and spend time with the added benefits of having online and offline utilities with our NFTs.
We don’t aim to replace any existing games or platforms, but we hope to deliver another venue where users can enjoy creative fan experiences. The metaverse makes it possible to design environments and experiences that are unimaginable in the real world due to different physical and safety limits.
Q2. Can you talk about how GEMIE sees the entertainment industry today and how it can characterize the entertainment industry? What features does GEMIE currently have and how can they help make room for Celebrities? https://twitter.com/domkodselva/status/1516027913782509575?s=21&t=iq2okkux77TTX-kTe8OYqw
Sure thing – this is actually a point of view i always want to share with my audience: 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.
In Gemie, we do not only offer users to experience themselves in virtual events with their favorite celebrities, users also have an opportunity to receive special perks both online and offline. Not only that, Gemie also encourages users to be creative in designing their own space and look in the metaverse. We are here for the long haul and we strike to provide an all-rounded metaverse platform for users.
Gemie has also 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. Let us know who your favorite celebrities are and they might appear in Gemie one day!
Q3. How is the Gemie is different from any other Metaverse project. Can you tell some points. Which make it different from others? https://twitter.com/jngingkir/status/1516311455913504768?s=21&t=iq2okkux77TTX-kTe8OYqw
Gemie is by far the only metaverse platform dedicated entirely to the Asian entertainment industry. We want to be the home for celebrating Asian talents with our entertainment industry expertise as well as diverse NFT utility and virtual experiences, which will all set us apart from our competitors.
As a metaverse project, we do not only offer users to experience themselves in virtual events with their favorite celebrities, but users also have an opportunity to receive special perks both online and offline. Not only that, Gemie also encourages users to be creative in designing their own space and look in the metaverse. We are here for the long haul and we strive to provide an all-rounded metaverse platform for users.
Q4. Gemie brings together two great topics that have been growing recently: NFT and Metaverse. So, what are the possibilities that users can have through this? Can artists have their own virtual museum? https://twitter.com/camberesdselva/status/1516037802424643588?s=21&t=iq2okkux77TTX-kTe8OYqw
We believe that the Gemie metaverse and NFTs can potentially enable the entertainment industry’s next wave of expansion in the Web3 era. We don’t just want users to enjoy visual events (like concerts or celebrity meet-ups) in Gemie. we also want them to be able to be freely creative in creating their own place with the NFTs they adore!
Here’s a picture you can imagine, There are several planets in the Gemie Universe, and each one has its own set of events. Each celebrity can have their own planet when Gemie planet represents users’ hometowns. Celebrity events will be happening on their planet, fans can also purchase limited NFTs created by their favorite artists.
Last but not least, there is no specific hardware required to enter Gemie, all you need is a device that can access the internet. We do not limit our target audience to the crypto native communities, we would like the mass to get into the metaverse.
Q5. Collaborations and partnerships are some of the most important cornerstones to help improve adoption. Could you please tell us about the current partners, plans for partnerships and what everybody stands to gain from these partnerships? https://twitter.com/panyahmad/status/1516104852035674119?s=21&t=iq2okkux77TTX-kTe8OYqw
We are delighted 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.
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.
We are indeed planning different collaborations with several well-known NFT projects who have strong communities. We’ll be announcing one of them very soon, stay tuned!
