Weekly Update: Aug 31

The Ethereum Mainnet Proof-of-Stake Merge is almost here as the end of summer draws near. Check out the latest Galaxis, Battle Royale and Girls Robots Dragons NFT news!

Weekly Update: Aug 31

If you’ve heard any of the recent Galaxis or GRD Twitter spaces over the last month - you probably already know about the Ethereum Proof-of-Stake Merge happening around the end of the second week of September. Andras and the team have discussed numerous interesting scenarios and developments related to the big blockchain upgrade.

As an additional resource, here is an Open Source Ethereum 2.0 Beacon Chain Explorer. If you are uncertain about what this all means for Galaxis and NFTs in general - please reach out to the team and/or open a discussion in the community.

Regarding Girls Robots Dragons - 200 GRD NFTs were added to the Galaxis NFT Vaults on August 22nd! As of the writing of this blog, less than 50 GRD NFTs remain to be claimed for 6,000 DUST utility tokens each.

More exciting GRD collection features are under development. Please keep up with the latest community information via Discord, Twitter and the GRD Community Space. We look forward to your thoughts and very much appreciate your direct feedback.

The Galaxis team has also been dropping hints and teasers about the upcoming Battle Royale (BR) game! The game will determine the fate of the remaining CryptoPunk NFTs set aside for the BR contest - as well as the main sale royalty trait(s). To view specific Ether Cards NFT eligibility, check the trait listings on the Ether.Cards website wallet, explorer/gallery or a secondary market like OpenSea. If an Ether Cards NFT displays Punk Battle Ticket and/or Royalty Battle Ticket traits - those cards gain entry to compete for the prizes!

As a quick BR recap, the game revolves around character decks and cards based on the characteristics of each particular Ether Cards NFT. Each deck is character specific and will include various cards based on that character. Overall, there will be 100 potential cards consisting of 20 items per 5 characters in the following breakdown: 6 Attack, 6 Defense, 4 Boosters and 4 Neutralizers.

To extend our appreciation for the Galaxis community, the team recently announced the opportunity for our members to name the cards in the upcoming Battle Royale game! Thank you everyone that contributed to the Battle Royale naming competition from August 18th through August 24th. The team is in the process of reviewing and selecting winners!
