This week Olyseum made global headlines across a range of leading crypto, finance and tech news outlets, including Investing.com, Bitcoin.com, BTC Manager, CryptoSlate, as well as over 50 other crypto news outlets! And with good cause, as two major news stories broke simultaneously — announcements that have kicked off the summer of OLY in style!
Second CEX: Gate listing
On Monday we had an early start, as it was 06:00 CET when our native utility token OLY was listed on the Gate.io exchange — a leading global crypto exchange by volume — extending its reach to over 4 million users across 150 countries and $2 billion volume per day.
This announcement represents another significant milestone for Olyseum, greatly extending the reach of our OLY utility token to millions of fans worldwide. It’s an honour to list OLY on the highly respected Gate.io exchange, which has established an excellent track record over the past 8 years in operation.
Listing on Gate broadens the global accessibility of OLY, which was already purchasable on the Uniswap decentralized exchange, the Probit exchange, while also being integrated into the Monedero and Oxis crypto wallets, and listed on CoinMarketCap and CoinGecko.

Olyseum unveils World’s first star-led experiential NFT (xNFT) platform
The whirlwind of activity didn’t stop there, as we followed that milestone with the highly anticipated launch of our platform for experiences and experiential, star-led NFTs (the xNFTs are here!).
The Olyseum platform will play host to a world-leading xNFT venue and experiences marketplace, in which fans can seamlessly browse through the xNFT profiles of stars from a range of sports and entertainment verticals, and access a range of exciting fan-centric features.
Olyseum’s new breed of experiential NFTs (xNFTs) will be blockchain-authenticated, granting holders the rights to highly revered experiences with sports and entertainment stars, such as periodical in-person interactions, personal video calls, access to exclusive merchandise and memorabilia, as well as the chance to leverage stars’ reach via joint social media posts — democratizing access to star-led promotional activities. Exclusive xNFTs can be bought, sold and rented on Olyseum’s proprietary xNFT marketplace using Olyseum’s native OLY utility token.
Commenting on the launch, Olyseum co-founder and CEO Carlos Grenoir said: “In today’s highly charged social media landscape, fans have huge visibility over their favourite stars’ activities, but interaction levels are extremely limited and lack any real substance. While the rapidly expanding NFT space is providing fertile ground for stars to develop high-value digital representations of their content, the fan-star experiential paradigm has yet to be properly explored, until now.
Olyseum wants to redefine the parameters of fan engagement, empower fans to have their fandom validated, broaden the accessibility of authentic star experiences, and create a venue for xNFT trading and renting. We’re also giving stars the chance to enrich existing NFTs and transform them into xNFTs on our platform. With our unrivalled network of international icons, Olyseum’s xNFT platform is in prime position to become the marketplace of choice for stars and fans alike, while providing a trusted environment for stars to debut in the crypto sphere, elevate their brand, and monetize their star power.”
NFT focused whitepaper released
And if that wasn’t enough excitement for one week, we’ve officially unveiled our highly anticipated NFT focused whitepaper, which provides a comprehensive overview of our star-led xNFT venue and experiences marketplace, detailing the range of cool features we think you’ll love!
Check out the whitepaper here.
The whitepaper is a significant body of work, and we hope you’ll take the time to dive in and explore our vision for experiential NFTs.
As always, thanks for reading and for your unwavering support as we build our Olyverse: stay tuned for a game-changing platform like nothing you’ve ever seen before!
