Weekly Update: Feb 8

Only two months into the new year and less than one month away from the SINGULARITY! Today’s update includes more partnership information, more upcoming dates, and so much more fun for everyone!

Weekly Update: Feb 8

Galaxis is quickly approaching several amazing milestones of development in just the first quarter of 2022. The DUST trickle begins in less than one week on Feb 15. Self-service platform release occurs in less than a month. On March 15, 2022, the Phoenix Trait will be activated. As previously mentioned, one possible scenario includes burning the trait from a qualifying Ether Card for 0.2 ETH!  This is 100% optional. Will there be other options?

Regarding the details for DUST, the yearly totals are as follows: OG - 233,571, Alpha - 45,714 and Founder - 7,142. There is also a 5% DUST accumulation bonus for Phoenix, Pristine and (Unforged) Perfect Cards. The bonuses are combinable, so a Pristine Perfect Phoenix would have a 15% increased dust rate! There will be a detailed breakdown of the monthly block rates at launch.

The Singularity on March 1 continues to gather steam. In anticipation of the upcoming event, there are incredible promotions for the community. The first opportunity is to create a banner to promote the Galaxis Singularity party and do the following:

Share your creation on Twitter tagging @ether_cards using hashtags #Galaxis #EtherCards #SingularityEvent - then fill in the relevant information on the document provided on Discord. The Galaxis team will choose the top 10 entries, and the community will vote through a discord poll.

Grand Prize - Founder Ether Card!

Second Prize - $500 in $DUST

Third Prize - $250 in $DUST

Fourth Prize - $100 in $DUST

Submissions are due by February 25, and the winner will be announced during the party on March 1!

Although nobody has actually seen Gandalf in quite some time, we now believe that he has also gained the power of teleportation. Based on the recent events in the mysterious tunnel, Australian Outback and London - there simply is no other explanation that can explain his movements. OK. Maybe there is one other explanation, but we won’t go there…yet.

The DUST magic has been good for Gandalf. In addition to his amazing Discord wizardry, he has also developed a great amount of followers on Twitter. It is even said that he holds court with the most powerful crypto and NFT influencers! Was Crystal Harris Hefner really hanging out with him last night? Did John Lennon and Yoko Ono’s son, Sean, tune in to his last space? Who will join him next?

However, the most important questions are still unanswered. How does he get his booming voice into that tiny little phone? Where is the origin of his Twitter voice? Is he broadcasting from the fifth dimension? Is he rug proof? Why do the Twitter trolls seek out his spaces - only to be slain before reaching stage?


Community

Although there are many more rewards planned to return value to our community, we are happy to share two more this week. To show our gratitude, the team is happy to announce new Weekly and Monthly Community Bounties!

Weekly Bounty: Moderators will choose one cardholder to receive a DUST reward based on community contributions.

Monthly Bounty: One community nominated and voted member will receive a Founder Card reward for outstanding contributions to the community. Three separate nominations are required from community members to participate and only cardholders may vote in the selection process. The winner does not have to be a current cardholder.

Week five of the "Dust off your Ranks" Campaign is now live in Discord. To participate, talk to level up your rank, have the “Admiral”, “Captain”, “Commander”, “Lieutenant” or “Ensign” role, and react to the giveaway bot on the #giveaways channel! Note: If the prize is not claimed this week, it will roll over into the following week. Congratulations to the winner!

Thank you @thundersonic for creating and maintaining the best community website in the metaverse - 0xfiles.com!

Please follow the official Ether Cards Twitter and join Discord for more information about all the fabulous giveaways and additional holiday festivities!
