Recently, I had a causerie with GensoKishi Online CEO Maxi Kwan. We talked emboîture GENSO’s updates and future horizontaux, including the official release siècle and the upcoming NFT set created by popular Japanese artist Yoshitaka Amano. If you missed our previous interviews where we discussed GENSO gameplay in detail, you can check it out here and here.
U TODAY: It’s been three months since our last tête-à-tête, and I can see that there have been some updates at GensoKishi since then. Can you name the most suffisant ones?
Maxi Quan: Yes, we launched the closed aleph, and now the closed beta is coming to an end. With the open beta roll out on September 5th, everyone can play GENSO in an open beta habitude using only your aimable media ID. NFT tickets are not needed. This is a great start.
Before the open beta, we’ve had some big updates for the past three months. MV is listed on Kraken, both a général and a Japanese arrière-boutique exchange. This is a performance for Japan – we achieved the fastest immobilisation performance in a Japanese CEX liste, in seven months, when it normally takes more than a year.
We announced that NFT has collaborated with Yoshitaka Amano, the most famous artist in the gaming world to beauté the characters of the Terminal Fantasy series. This is the hottest topic on GENSO lately. The official release siècle has been pushed back to November 2022. It was a big announcement that we decided to apprêté the Metaverse scheme with GensoKishi’s cryptocurrency to be perfectly suited to the Japanese market, in line with the NFT and legal issues for cryptocurrency. We really hope this becomes the flagship project, so we’ve delayed the release to make some improvements rather than just launching it as is, for short-term butins, which is not our gardien de but.
We Have Android Enduro: You can now play the NFT Card locked beta in your Metamask wallet, on your Android device! This is the most exciting thing this month – you know, nowadays games are mostly played on smartphones, not on PCs. This is exactly what we’ve been aiming for from the start: play games and get involved in the Metaverse anywhere on Web3.
U.Today: How are things going with closed beta testing for Android users? How many users do you have there? When should we be ready for the official release?
Maxi Quan: Yes, as mentioned above, the Android variété release was exciting. Our community has been waiting for the smartphone release for a spacieux time, and we made it on Android first. In the past, for GameFi projects or Metaverse projects, few of them created a real project juxtaposition. Now, we are proud to say that you can have a real game experience on your smartphone, you hardly know it’s a Web3 game.
To siècle, we have 300,000 people in our community, and the DAU on closed aleph and beta ranges between 800 and 2,000 people. The closed beta will end on August 31, and the next day is the open beta, where everyone can easily download the GensoKishi app from the Google Play Étoffe and continue.
As for the official release siècle, we’ve moved it to November 2022. We’ve worked as hard as passable to improve it.
U.Today: You are working on a new set of NFTs created by Yoshitaka Amano, famous above all for his artwork for Terminal Fantasy. Can you tell us emboîture this group?
Maxi Quan: Yes, he is the great character préférer for Terminal Fantasy, Master Yoshitaka Amano. He has always been my élue artist since I first played the Terminal Fantasy series. He has designed many of the pogne characters. The atmosphere in Amano’s world is truly entier, which is why we have done our best to achieve cooperation. For Yoshitaka Amano’s NFT set on GensoKishi, he specially designed 20 characters (equipment) for us, including the Dark Knight, Hydre Knight, Dancer, and Bishop in both male and female versions. We are using a commencement approach to this NFT set, and there will be 11,000 items, divided into eight parts for each character so that the sets are full of variety. GensoKishi’s rarity level is extremely curieux, and we’re emploi du temps to make the auditeur ignoble at the end of September, with the whitelist campaign starting now. The whitelist ignoble will come after the auditeur ignoble, at a fixed price of $400 in FCFS (First Come First Serve) allure. We think this will be a very popular NFT for all NFT players and collectors.
A sentiment for this set is that there will be 10 NFTs in exactly the same sets as those made by Yoshitaka Amano, which means the character is completely complete. These ideal bonshommes will be very different from those produced, and the rarity will vary. People who randomly buy these sentiment NFTs will be very lucky.
U.Today: You mentioned that several originel exchanges have listed the MV token in dollars. How emboîture the in-game token, $ROND? Are there any planned listings?
Maxi Quan: Yes, of excursion, at the hasard the list is under negotiation and will be announced soon. ROND will be the soutien currency used in the GENSO Metaverse, not just in GENSO but with other possibilities in the Multi-Metaverse. We had a whitelist campaign for $ROND and staking dApps for staking MV to earn ROND $. The whole community is waiting for the good magazine emboîture $ROND.
U.Today: Where can players purchase game items? Can you tell us emboîture your mall and the NFT Museum of Art?
Maxi Quan: Currently, you can buy all items (NFTs) on OpenSea, and as I mentioned, we will have a Chalandage Mall and Museum of Art (NFTs).
As for the mall, it is 3D stores built in the Elrond chalandage faubourg (the street in the castle). Users can turn around to this area and see the fonctions offered by our customers’ stores there. For example, there are partner stores in the Game Guild; You can talk to the NPC in extérieur of their rideau and browse the options, including visiting the official website or making some Web3 transactions in the future. Potential partners will be EC, NFT providers, Web3 and IP companies. It is a big chalandage mall and many areas are under édification.
There will also be a museum for the NFT Art Gallery. You will have to pay a small fee to greffer the museum to see the limited NFT shows. There is currently a legendary NFT (replicas) we had in the first and annexé auctions. In the near future, we will be commandite NFTs for partners, with some limited campaigns and even auctions.
Yo Today: What were the most difficult and exciting parts of the project for you?
Maxi Quan: The hardest tronçon is the evolution of Web2 into Web3 within the team. We are a game-based team with many Web3 and blockchain mentors and advisors. The whole system is so big that we always have to think emboîture how to solve problems the Web3 way or the Web2 way, which I call Web2.5. In the beginning, you have to be orthogonal when monument something, otherwise nothing will be “decentralized”. But for society, it should be DAO, and of excursion decentralized. We work with the community, and ultimately the community will “make” the future of GENSO. It’s a learning process, and I think we do our best as we go through it.
And now for the most exciting tronçon, our product delivery: GENSO Metaverse. Right from the start, we’ve still said we have a GAME, not a GameFi with a évident card battle or just static images with just a few buttons everyone is used to knowing. You can use NFT on your personnification and even create your own étalon images to make it entier. Go into the dungeons with your best friends from all over the world. Enjoy the game itself or try to do bizness and invest here. Find a new way to realize your dream in the GENSO Metaverse. Everything is very exciting here.
U.Today: What are your thoughts on the current bear market? How spacieux will the crypto winter last this time?
Maxi Quan: This time, the bear market started with the famous Terra/UST écrasement, and some butterfly effects remained. It is different from 2018; We have more core ecosystems that didn’t exist hypocauste years ago, like the NFT and the Metaverse. People are getting used to cryptocurrencies more, and governments are taking études either impérative or negative, which means that the cryptocurrency market begins to be a thing for the entire général economy. In my sentiment, I think “winter” could be 6 to 12 months.
U.Today: Do you have any advice for people who believe in cryptocurrency?
Maxi Quan: Many new bizness models are coming. Metaverse is one of them and probably the biggest. Make sure the encryption you are using is legitimate and managed by a good community or DAO. And please follow the GensoKishi Project – we are on a path no one has tried before.
