Host: Good evening Grey Community, we are extremely glad to have Mr. Carlos Grenoir CEO of Olyseum with us today.
Carlos: Hi everyone, great to be here. Thanks for having me!
Host: The pleasure is all ours. Shall we start today’s session?
Carlos: Let’s do it!
Host: Let’s start with some introduction questions and please type done after completion of an answer.
Carlos: Sure, sounds good!
Host: Q1. Could you please Introduce yourself to the community?
Carlos: Absolutely, thanks for the warm introduction! My name is Carlos Grenoir, I’m CEO of Olyseum. My background is in neuroscience and engineering, and I’ve been firmly involved in the blockchain space since 2016. Much of my academic studies have focused on Artificial Intelligence and Collaborative Systems, and I have enjoyed an extensive career in Computer Security.
Host: Perfect, looking forward to an energetic and informative session with you.
Host: Time to explore Olyseum 🤩🤩
Host: Q2. We are so curious about Olyseum! Please tell us about Olyseum in detail.
Carlos: Sure, I founded Olyseum with Kevin Mitnick — who some might know as one of the world’s greatest hackers — along with former FC Barcelona legends Andres Iniesta, Carles Puyol and Ivan De La Pena — who I’m also sure the Grey CryptoHub community are familiar with!
Host: Exactly we are!!!
Carlos: When we all got together, we had the same goal to create a platform that brings fans and stars closer together, and reward fans for their participation in the celebrity economy. With our soon-to-be-launched Olyverse, this vision we have shared since day one will come to fruition. This will be a new reality for fan engagement, a place for experiential NFTs and exclusive interactions between fans and stars.
Host: Time to hear about the marketing strategies🌟🌟
Carlos: Of course!
Host: Q3. What are the Long Term Marketing plans of Olyseum?
Carlos: In the long term, we are positioning ourselves as the destination of choice for fans keen to explore innovative new interactions and experiences with stars, and the platform for stars who want to make their crypto debut in a secure, star-led environment.
We are also passionate about creating a coliseum (Olyseum — get it) of fans from all over the world, and leveraging our unrivalled star network to build awareness among a global fanbase from a range of sports and entertainment verticals. This will be a crypto-powered metaverse for fans, created by stars.
Host: So Olyseum aims to bring the stars and the fans closer!
Carlos: Precisely, that has always been our guiding vision
Host: Time to satisfy the curiosity of our Twitter Community!!!!
Carlos: Gotta love the twitterverse.
Host: First question from twitter. What are your top 3 things for priorities in 2021? Could you share some plans for the upcoming year?
Carlos: Hi Sophia! Thanks for the question. First and foremost, our Olyverse platform launch. This is everything we have been working towards. Our dedicated team have been working diligently behind the scenes as we approach our live date.
Secondly, star recruitment will continue to be a major priority. With a live platform and active ecosystem, we will be in a great position to onboard more global stars and in turn, attract more fans.
Thirdly, we want to explore innovative partnerships and secure additional exchange listings. This three-pronged approach will drive our business objectives forward.
It will be a busy end to the year, but 2022 will be just as action packed, if not more!
Host: Awesome 😍
Host: Can you share some names of the stars that are already faces of Olyseum?
Carlos: Sure, our star roster continues to grow, just take a look at our website. These are the faces of the future of fan engagement from sports, fashion, culinary arts, MotoGP, film — we are creating a diverse star roster. just this weekend one of our OlyStars Jorge Martin made history at the Austrian Grand Prix, let me show you.
Host: Sure go ahead.
Carlos: We sponsored his helmet — check it out! He is just one of our many successful stars making history.
Host: Yeah spotted olyseum there. This boosts my excitement to know more about Olyseum 🌟🌟🤩
Carlos: Glad to hear it!
Host: Alright! Let’s head to the next question.
Carlos: Cool, let’s see what questions twitter has in store.
Host: Second question from twitter. Can you share with the #Greyteam the story of the continuation of Olyseum’s ‘Behind The Startup’ series?
Carlos: Hi! Good question, happy to know we have fans of our medium page in the Grey CryptoHub!
Host: The Grey community is always energetic and curious!!!
Carlos: Our Advisory Board is made up of a team of serial entrepreneurs, investment visionaries and tech leaders, each with an interesting story to tell. We wanted to give them a platform to articulate their visions for Olyseum, while demonstrating to our community and the world, that not only do we have a stacked roster of stars, but our team of Advisors is also star-studded.
These individuals have an incredible track-record, and we are proud to have them on board. We will also introduce our institutional investors as part of our behind the start-up series — another proud moment for us.
Host: Sounds great. Big hand for the Olyseum team.
Host: Third question from twitter. All the goals of your project are absolutely great, But One of the main factors users looking for in the crypto project is the use cases of the token? So what are the Use cases of $OLY token in your platform? What is your plan to increase the adoption of $OLY token?
Carlos: Hi Linh, thanks for taking part!
The OLY utility token, which has received a non-action letter from the Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority (FINMA), is designed to serve two main functions on the Olyseum platform.
Firstly, it serves as our rewards system for users, rewarding their engagement and gamifying activities, and to give us the vehicle to value the activity of our fans in the ecosystem.
Secondly, the token gives fans access to exclusive experiences with stars, experiential NFTs, and access to VIP spaces and star-led events in our soon-to-be-launched Olyverse.
In terms of driving adoption, we are working on securing more exchange listings, to extend OLY far and wide. Once our platform launches, there will be a purpose-built ecosystem for fans to buy xNFTs with OLY — making OLY the token ‘to the stars’.
Since the public listing of OLY on the Uniswap decentralized exchange in February, the OLY token has been integrated into the Oxis crypto wallet, listed on the ProBit Exchange as well as the Gate.io crypto exchange.
Host: Fourth question from twitter. What are the key milestones on your roadmap — both things you have already achieved and things that we can look forward to? Any partnerships and short/long term technical milestones that you want to talk about??
Carlos: Cool, hi Mayank! Thanks for your question.
I’m very proud of how our team has charted a strong growth trajectory from day one. Major successes include the creation of our native utility token; continuously recruiting top level stars; securing exchange listings and developing an amazing platform that we are about to unveil to the world.
I don’t want to give any spoilers right now, but this will be unlike anything fans have seen before. Also, I feel the release of our xNFT whitepaper several months ago was a huge step forward, demonstrating our intent to take a market leading position in the NFT space.
Creating an ‘industry first’ moment is a major achievement that we are proud of, and I truly believe experiential NFTs have massive potential for widespread adoption for fans, and brands. These are just some of the milestones, and there is so much more to come.
Host: The Grey Community really appreciate Olyseum’s dedication ✨✨
Host: It’s going all so smooth we reached the last question of the Twitter segment already ⭐️✨
Carlos: I like the Grey Community! I’m being told some of them are already joining our telegram channel, everyone is welcome!
Host: As of this moment, which community are you focusing on, what’s your area of interest. Can everyone access your project?
Host: A lot of members will be mutual after today’s AMA 😁😁
Carlos: Hi Ibrahem, interesting question. I would say we have a number of key target demographics. Seasoned crypto users who are looking for something new, who want to explore the exciting reality of experiential NFTs, for example.
Additionally, crypto novices who are just dipping their toes in the crypto waters. We want to make it easy for everyone to purchase and enjoy xNFTs, whether you’re a veteran trader or total beginner.
You’re right Ibrahem, it’s for everyone. Fans from all sorts of areas will be a major focus for us. And then of course, the stars themselves. Our unrivalled star network will help boost our ongoing recruitment efforts.
Host: This would be an awesome step. Alright it’s time for the live session.
Carlos: Let’s do it!
Carlos: WOW! I’m impressed
Q) Community is considered as the backbone for every projects & without a great community a project like yours will never reach it’s full potential. How do you uniquely attracts your supporters, users & investors to stay here in your project for the long term? Please share with us!!!
Carlos: Hi Cadni, I completely agree! Community is the bedrock for every project out there. I think there are 2 points here. One, how do we attract new community members, and two, how do we keep current community members engaged. Both of these objectives can be serviced with a robust communications strategy, whereby we keep our existing community fully briefed on our latest news and upcoming milestones. We have a dedicated team of admins in our telegram channel for example, who are continuously engaging with our wide community, answering their questions and making them feel part of the project, because they are.
Then when it comes to attracting new members, I think today provides a great example of 2 communities coming together, and learning about each other. We want to continue to communicate our value proposition in a clear and concise manner, particularly as we gear up for the launch of the Olyverse. Some of your members may have seen articles about Olyseum in the media, this also helps showcase our progress on a routine basis.
Q) Share your plans for the future. How are you going to surprise the users who follow and support you?
Carlos: This is an interesting one. Rewards are an integral part of our soon to be launched Olyverse. I don’t want to go into too much detail but we are committed to rewarding users’ support and activities within the platform, and want to create some ‘wow’ surprise moments.
Q) What’s your plan to bring non-crypto-natives into your ecosystem? How do you keep a balance between developing the technology and also improving the value of your token?
Carlos: I may have spoken briefly about this previously, but I think the key here is ‘ease of access’. Non-crypto natives, as you put it, sometimes face a steep learning curve when it comes to entering the space. We want to make this ‘debut’ as seamless and user-friendly as possible.
Also, we know that stars have a unique ability to truly connect with fans, users, from around the world. Our bonafide star power will undoubtedly help entice non-native crypto users to check out our platform, and see what’s possible for themselves!
Ultimately, I think non-crypto natives can definitely appreciate the ‘experiential’ aspect of our xNFTs — this is something we feel will resonate with a global audience.
Q) Can you name a few standout aspects of OLYSEUM that set it apart from the competition? What is the competitive advantage of your platform in which you have the most faith?
Carlos: Hi Elissa, thanks for taking part! To make a long answer short, I think the fact that we have introduced a fresh concept to market ie: experiential Non-fungible tokens — combined with our ‘star power’ (both in terms of global icons and esteemed advisors) sets us apart.
Q) What is the Best way to follow All your Upcoming news and updates? What are your plans in coming Future?
Carlos: Hi! Our twitter is very active (use the handle @olyseum), also our medium page https://olyseum.medium.com/
As well as this, our telegram channel provides our community with up-to-the-minute updates on our progress, and gives them a chance to ask questions, much like today’s session. For any Grey members who want to join we’d be delighted to have you!
