2021 in a Nutshell

  • Our debut
    We began our social media efforts on August 26th, introducing Genopets in our first tweet and medium post, debuting Genopets. We would have never made it this far had it not been for the growth of this amazing community.
  • We Raised $8.3M in Funding
    On October 18th, we announced our seed funding. The round was led by the prominent VC’s Konvoy Ventures and Pantera Capital, with participation from Solana Capital, YGG, Merit Circle, FTX’s Alameda Research, YGG, Merit Circle, as well as many other notable funds that helped us achieve our campaign goal.
  • The Community is Powerful
    It’s safe to say that our most significant success this year has been the growth of the community. Our Discord server grew from 67k in November to over 165k in the last seven weeks alone and is going strong. We owe this growth to each and every one of you. Thank you for showing up, sharing, and contributing to this beautiful community.
  • Gene Token Successfully Launched
    Also, in November, we announced our Multi-Chain, Multi-platform token launch of GENE Token, working with Impossible Finance, Raydium, Bybit, and MEXC.
  • We’ve Partnered with Major Guilds
    Since having YGG and Merit Circle as investors in our seed round, we’ve greatly expanded, and are continuing to expand, our guild partnerships with the goal of onboarding players from around the world into the Genoverse.
  • We Released the Genopet Eggs
    After air-dropping 1000 Genopet Eggs, the 1st of our Genovian NFTs, to the community in October, more than 40k Genovians participated in the Genesis Genopet Fair Launch to secure one of the remaining 2,333 Genopet Eggs and make the Genesis Genopet whitelist.
  • Influential Athletes & Gamers Joined the Genovian Family
    Thank you, Tobias Harris, Keisuke Honda, AB de Villiers, Fresh, and Lachlan, for seeing the value in what we’re bringing to the world through #MoveToEarn. We’re excited to have you on board!
  • The Great Hatch
    After a two-week window, the hatching of Genopet Eggs ended last Monday, totaling 3,218 hatched eggs and leaving 115 Cracked. While cracked Eggs won’t ever hatch a Genesis Genopet, these eggs symbolize and commemorate a pivotal moment in Genoverse history and are currently trading on Magic Eden, Solanart, and
  • Genesis Genopets Were Born
    Procedurally generated based on the imbuement of each player’s unique personality, there are, and will only ever be, 3,218 Genesis Genopets, marking the 2nd Genovian NFT available to the community. For everyone that was able to obtain one, note that their evolution path is unique to Genesis Genopets. With a Stage 4 Evolution headstart, Genesis Genopets don attributes that are unique to Genesis Genopets and cannot be purchased or earned to be used on any subsequent free Genopets. Thus, as a whole, Genesis Genopets are the rarest of them all and are currently tradable on Magic Eden, Solanart, and
  • The Creation of Terraform Seeds
    Following our Fair Launch ending, we introduced the 3rd Genovian NFT available to the community, a participation prize for everyone who showed up to bid.
  • Genotype Crystal NFT Airdrop
    If you’ve been a part of our community since early October, you may have participated in helping us become the most popular project at the Solana Ignition Hackathon receiving more than 8000 votes from the community. If you liked, commented, voted, and provided us your address in discord, check your wallet for your shiny new Genotype Crystal. This is officially the 4th Genovian NFT available to the community and will soon appear on our official partner marketplaces.
