(12/ 6) Bella the Blue-Bot Update!
The Blueniverse: Our Metaverse of Things!
Hi everyone, I hope all is well! We’re just plugging away on the development side of things to capitalize on the compounding effects of building software. Here are a few updates!
(1) Edu Membership Onboarding of Token Members
We re-wrote our token database for lifetime memberships last week for our streaming platform, bug tested it, and now we’re going back to onboarding more token holders. So if you’re on the list, you should be receiving your invite email shortly! Thank you so much for being patient! We’re rolling it out in batches, so if there are any other integration issues, we squash them right away, before we move on to the next phase of development for the edutainment platform.
(2) Starting Production of Our first Mini Game for Token Holders!
We just started production of our first mini-game for the NFT project, which is being worked on in parallel with our Blueniverse. We know in the NFT world, you have to produce quick, fast, and in a hurry, so we’ll be launching a mobile game ahead of schedule to give everyone a taste of Play2Earn, Bella style. (Woo hoo!)
We’ll share more details and screenshots of the game as we progress, but we’re building these mini-games for a couple of reasons.
The first is that it gives us an opportunity to test small aspects of the overall metaverse by getting feedback, testing how Play2Earn elements are working, and taking the stuff we like and adding it to the Blueniverse, and for the aspects, we don’t like, scrap it.
The second reason is that we know our community will need to have more aspects to cheer about for the NFT project and we’ll work as fast as we can to keep giving you more and more and more. And just to be clear, there will be a series of Play2Earn games that we’ll release over time.
(3) How We’ve Been Thinking About Roll Outs
And that leads us to why it’s important we test game dynamics in traditional Web2 style with the intentions of being fully Web3 at some point. We’re calling it a Web2.5 approach! 😃
We’ll create a set of systems so that players can collect $BLUBUX but it’ll start off more manual (than automated) until the tech giants have more clarity on how they will (or won’t ) embrace Web3.
This graduated approach will enable us to test, learn, and build while giving our community an opportunity to play and earn rewards! And that might mean a leaderboard where you can’t withdraw, but you’ll go to another site where you’ll be able to claim your rewards. We’d hate to spend 2-3 months building something we can’t use.
(4) Bella Discord Stickers and Animated GIFs Coming Soon!
We should have our Discord Stickers available in the next couple of days, some animated GIFS of Bella we can use, and we’ve made some amazing progress on the animated series. 🥳
So that’s some of the updates and we’ll keep you posted!
So as always, we’re building the airplane while flying it, so just know there aren’t many NFT projects building and we believe that value will compound over time!
