22/11/2021 Funganomics Completes Its First Seed Investment Round to Accelerate Development of the NFT and Gaming Ecosystem

PRESS RELEASE.The Ethereum-based solution will be a premier, bespoke online community, bringing together NFT investors, partners, play-to-earn gamers and developers.

While new NFT and PTE gaming sites are being deployed seemingly everyday, few if any have tied together in a seamless, intuitive way a truly robust and inclusive community that delights and rewards all key stakeholders.

Funganomics, however, is building for “what’s next” in this new and exciting space, addressing the gaps in functionality and user experience currently challenging other platforms and their digital communities.

Specifically, thenew ecosystemwill comprise several key functional areas that will work together symbiotically, including Fungatopia (NFTs), FGS Games (PTE Gaming) and Fungality (AR/VR Experiences) all completing successful registered trademark applications.

The UK-based company announced on 18th of November successful completion of its initial seed round of funding, the source of which was a private investor from the US. The company indicated it will use the funding to support staffing increases, additional technology infrastructure and software enablement.

Jeremy Roberts, CEO and Founder, said “Funganomics is uniquely positioned to provide a wide array of solutions to the Blockchain sector. We’ve taken an independent approach in our initial startup by funding the project ourselves until now, and we are very pleased to have both a substantial injection of new capital, as well as additional knowledge and experience that will assist the company in its aggressive growth goals over the coming months.”

Roberts added, “to-date the team has already achieved several, significant milestones and benchmarks in terms of progress, and we are well on our way to both the FGS token pre-sale and our first NFT game character drop throughour custom-built platform. Funganomics is providing new technology at just the right moment in a thriving Blockchain market with very strong token utility. You can read our blog post on company progresshere”

TheFunganomicstoken pre-sale is tentatively scheduled for 30th November, with the NFT character drop planned shortly thereafter on 16th of December.

To further amplify and hasten progress on its product portfolio roadmap, the company intends to formally explore venture capital alliances following their initial presale and NFT character introductions.

Gen 1 Wonky
Heyo! I'm Gen 1 Wonky. I've never told anyone this, but I once clawed a dog. It's not common knowledge, but my ancestry connects me to King Henry VIII. Our friendship will be despicable, voluptuous, and full of lasagna.

Who is Satoshi Nakamoto?
"Who is Satoshi Nakamoto?" is dedicated to the mysterious creation of Bitcoin, and acts as the showcase artwork within Javier Arrés’ exploratory series "Bitcoin, The Origin". "Who is the creator of Bitcoin?" The artist, Arrés, explores this question, and the feelings of doubt and mystery that accompany it, through his unique artistic language. An unknown, an enigma. It should be remembered that the name Satoshi Nakamoto is a pseudonym of Bitcoin's author or authors and gives us little insight into its true creator. For this Visual Toy, Arrés uses the signature claw machine, his famous half-operation, to symbolize our collective ignorance and unconfirmed belief: As soon as it has the stuffed animal within its grasp and appears to have solved the puzzle, the animal escapes again, and again. At present, there are three more public and studied possibilities who are either believed to be the creators of the currency or who directly claim the creation of it. It may be all or none of them, yet these three personalities leave us clues which are an important part of this interesting enigma. For this moment, it will remain unknown... In this artwork, Arrés elevates the claw machine from the apparatus, to an iconic pop art object serving as an important element to the Bitcoin creation narrative. Action is everywhere, with each movement serving an iconographical or metaphorical purpose related directly to cryptocurrency: Various ups and downs, roller coasters, mining points, robot, coins and more speak to a sense of hope, risk, mystery, randomness and possibility of pay out. Hundreds of manically thought out details make this creation one of the artist’s most complex Visual Toys to date. ------- "Bitcoin, The Origin" is a set of two Visual Toys, titled "Who is Satoshi Nakamoto" and "It’s Alive!" which reflect and explore the mystery and enigmas behind the creation of Bitcoin. Arrés presents these proposals to us in his signature style, full of iconography, fantasy, maniacal animations and a panoply of details (both subtle and overt) which simultaneously fascinate, hypnotize, and narrate this historical milestone through the singular vision of the artist. Through this series, Arrés freezes a crucial moment of cryptocurrency history, taking a still photo under his vision and turning it into two unique crypto artworks. ---- More info about Javier Arrés: https://javierarres.com/about.html
Alex in Wonderland
A figure, Alex, stands mostly naked in the midst of a physical and psychological maelstrom. He is clad only in nostalgic 80’s era socks, on a tenuous island between active waters and a variety of shark denizens. Sharks on the right side of the image are all beached, including a shark with a quartz crystal snout, an orange shark wrapped in a life buoy, and a shark further in the distance wearing an 80’s style shirt with the number “88”. On the left side is the largest shark, wearing bright glossy red lipstick and brandishing prominent teeth with braces. She is cordoned off from the figure by a roped float divider, and within her thought bubble is a warning symbol. Behind the figure, hovering in the air, are Grey aliens emerging from the distance, out of a series of elliptical UFO shaped interdimensional membranes. The Greys take on the visual form of spermazoa ostensibly impregnating the interdimensional thresholds. As is typical, these Greys inhabit a zone just behind the unconscious topology of Alex’s dissociative mind. Though Alex’s bottom half is representative, his top half mutates into a psychological cornucopia. In a manner akin to “Auto-Erotic Sphinx”, a predecessor work, the figure has self suctioned—an act of sensual infatuation, enjoyment, and exploration. Upward exists the figure’s primary conscious eye, adorned with a revolutionary beret emblazoned with a Bitcoin badge. The figure’s summit features the nose of a fighter jet facing off against video game Bullet Bills, one of whom is marked by a communist North Korean star. A cropped section of a UFO observes the contest. Alex’s mind branches both left and right. To the left is more singular embodied consciousness, manifesting two eyes and a Ganesh trunk grasping crayons. The right branch dissociates upward diagonally, emerging into an array of eyes, faces, teeth, tail, a unicorn horn, and much more—all of which participate in expressing his unconscious being; a democracy of psychic factions representing thought impressions and associations. All illumination and darkness– fernal, infernal, high consciousness and corporeal underbelly–reside in this realm. In the distance are relatively languid, light clouds, and against the firmament hovers a colossal distant eye peering over the scene and far beyond. This painting possesses underlying genetic traits with previous works such as “Auto-Erotic Sphinx with Toys”, “Dionysus”, and “Fuku-Shiva”. The work serves also as a nod to an earlier period of art inspiration during late teens and early twenties— born out of the nakedness, vulnerability, curiosity, and wonder inherent to coming of age and all subsequent psychedelic revelation.
