Weekly Update: Feb 22

One week until the Singularity! LaMelo Ball, Geneticats and CryptoMonster Lab NFT sales are also here. Let the DUST begin and please take note of a very special announcement!

Weekly Update: Feb 22

Galaxis has partnered with one of the greatest artists/entertainers of our generation to bring you an NFT collection like none that have come before. This groundbreaking artist will be using Galaxis' newest technology, the "Art Engine" to create a new type of collaborative NFT. Now, the Galaxis community has the opportunity to become the very first members of an exclusive pre-sale list for this first-of-its-kind collection from a global icon!

Right now, this project is operating under the name "Kamp X". While we cannot yet reveal the artist's identity, we are including a personal message from them below. Join us in our "Singularity Event" on Twitter Spaces from 12:00 PM EST - 12 AM EST on March 1 when we announce the name!

"I cannot reveal my name yet, but I am  an artist. I've lived a magical life. For more than half a century, I have been honing my art, no matter the medium. Be it literature, starring in over 70 motion pictures, poetry, painting, music, or tracking exotic and beautiful wildlife in the most remote African bush to capture ephemeral moments with a camera, I yearn to express my creative spirit.

I wanted to share this with others, and build a community  where creative beings could gather to express themselves in exciting and innovative ways.

So I created an enclave in which all of us bohemians and pirates, eclectics, and artists can congregate, collaborate, and make things and connect.

A living, breathing virtual space with boundless possibilities. A decentralized hub where we come together to share ideas & collaborate on art, film, music, and literary projects.

I want to go there with you. I want to create and collaborate with you. Is it calling out to you as well? Welcome to my Kamp.

Join my discord to sign up for our  Pre-mint list to receive one of my pieces of art at no cost (you only pay gas). The NFT will also carry utility for my upcoming collaborative project(s).

I'll reveal myself on March 1, 2022.”

There were in fact multiple wizard sightings at ETH Denver this weekend - dance wizards, party wizards, blockchain wizards, musical wizards, squirrel wizards, pizza wizards, and even one or two DUST wizards. Ironically, Gandalf was not captured in any photographs!

Unbeknownst to all - while Gandalf and his merry band of wizards enjoyed the festivities, there were secret meetings with even more powerful wizards. Maybe there is a LINK somewhere?

Speaking of top secret meetings and celebrities, what is Kamp X? Is that a virtual space? Who is the celebrity behind the project?
