Forty lucky recipients of one of these highly wanted hardware wallets were chosen at random from among all of the applicants. The fact that the vast majority of attendees owned NFT assets added significantly to the event’s already intense level of excitement.
SYMBIOGENESIS Original “The Martial Empire Beer”
SYMBIOGENESIS-themed “The Martial Empire Beer” was given out to guests at the event. Distribution of this actual beer was coordinated in conjunction with the NFT project “Crypto Beer Punks.” In addition to sampling the beer, guests may participate in games that unveiled the label’s secret stories.
Participation in a Survey and the Handing Out of Gifts
After the gifts were distributed, the festivities came to a close. A post-event survey was done to gather comments on overall event satisfaction and enjoyable content. More than 90% of guests were pleased with the event, and many asset holders provided favorable feedback, such as experiencing the Business Division’s passion and enjoying the opportunity for diversified networking. This feedback contributed to the event’s success.
Selections from the Participants:
It was a very meaningful event with both networking opportunities and serious talk sessions.
I could truly feel the incredible enthusiasm that went into creating SYMBIOGENESIS. I hope they can continue creating amazing things without pushing themselves too hard physically.
Being able to talk directly with the producers and directors, ask questions, and share opinions was a valuable experience. There were also many individuals active in various areas, and it was really great to feel the future of web3.
I don’t think there’s any other place where an individual user can have so much communication with project producers and creators. Thank you!

The acronym NFT stands for “Non-Fungible Token,” which describes tokens that cannot be exchanged for others of the same kind. Transaction history and other data pertaining to the acquisition and ownership of assets can be recorded on the blockchain in a way that makes them nearly impossible to forge or manipulate. As a result, NFTs can be used as evidence that their linked assets are truly one-of-a-kind. The Ethereum blockchain has popularized the ERC-721 standard for NFTs.
