On the crossing
GameFi Crossing (GFX), formerly known as Freyala, is currently going through an intense rebrand. Rebranding not just to give a clear and direct highway into the future, but also a rebrand to be born anew. We are determined to further create our community, and to create a hub for all new and established users and projects. A place to come together, discuss and share. In this journey - we ourselves (GFX) create projects, assets and stories not just to showcase, but also to inspire. To inspire other creators to either use the GFX platform in pursuit of their own vision, or to help us achieve our vision as well…
GFX is a project actively soliciting innovation and creativity, and is open to both old and new users. Together with the Harmony ecosystem, GFX is determined to bring traditional gaming to Web3, from idle browser games to full-fledged 3D modeled executables - bringing Web3 to the next level.
By encouraging the ability to use other projects’ NFTs and tokens within our own world, we showcase to the world the real usage potential of Web3. Decentralized projects, decentralized assets - built to succeed by removing single points of failure, empowering creators and motivating the creation and rebirth of older projects.
X marks the spot.
What happened to the old name, why the rebrand?
All good stories have a villain, there is no light without darkness. GFX too, has dealt with a villain - but during our recovery period, we have shown the true power of decentralization. In true Web3 fashion, we as a community stepped up against the wrongdoings of a single entity and brought the project and its token back to true form.
GFX has secured all tokens and contracts, multisigged the treasury and are currently auditing the known contracts holding and allocating currencies. We are ready to listen, communicate, and step forward into a bright future. For this future, to give the name a clear and free meaning - we have decided to do a full rebrand for the entire project, while keeping its core intention pure.
GameFi is a crypto world that incorporates community, gaming, and profitability. A Crossing is a place of confluence, meeting and flow, of enterprise, marketplace, ideas and culture. Energy flows through and around the crossing, and can maintain direction or change path according to one’s need or desire.
GameFi Crossing is (and will continue to be) a meeting place for projects and people, a place where ideas can be shared and built, where success can be achieved with the support of a strong community.
Without further ado.
Building the team
With a rebrand, comes a new plan. Community ideas and interaction is not just part of the plan, it is the plan. Together with the community a new game plan has been coordinated. A new collaborative platform, the idea factory and a firm just-in-time delivery system with a clear weekly featured roadmap. A team that is both collaborative but also organized into pillars of strength to give a clear understanding of its needs and wants, and a tremendous ability to execute.
Perhaps most importantly, no single decision maker. The intent of GFX is to ensure that decisions will be voted on through layers. Layers of team and layers of community, creating a curated democracy. Over time, the DAO will shift through members and size - creating a dynamic, but also modular decision making process, keeping the project both modern and fresh.
Harnessing the team’s energy
The team did not just expand, it also gained more motivation than ever - building the project, building the community, but most of all…building the ecosystem! The GFX team consists of members working on GFX directly, and is also fortified with team members from other projects. This ensures the team and the community members that GFX can connect with other projects through pure transparency and seamless integration. Because of our vision and enthusiasm, GFX is well poised to work together with other projects, and with future on-chain integrations and off-chain oracles.
Building the world
The restructure of the past month has been punctuated with CryptoPigs Tamagotchi, Plot Farming, NFT Staking and much more!
The new base world, renamed to Xangaea is similar to the Pangaea we may recognize, as it continues to evolve, to move, and to grow. The Frey have thrown off their shackles and returned to their roots - community, personal growth and commerce. They have embraced their past, and love of the world around them, and have renamed their world to reference it’s ancient roots.
Xangaea has been updated with emissions and minigames, and empowering the true reason for GFX, contains a marketplace for Dingos, a game for CryptoPigs and NFT Staking for Defi Kingdoms Heroes! This is just the beginning, GFX is open to suggestions and open to feature requests! It’s time to bring everything (and everyone!) together!
Hand in hand, humanity enlightens.
As part of the recovery and regrowth plan, a Harmony Gnosis Multisig wallet has been created and all tokens now live securely with the requirement that multiple people sign project-related transactions.
Currently, the multisig group consists of GFX members, Tranquility City members and a Harmony Core Team member. Because the Harmony Core Team member is an original team member of GFX, we request another Harmony Core team member to join the Harmony Multisig Wallet. By keeping a Harmony Core Team member as part of our multi-sig, we will continue to foster GFX <> Harmony mutual trust in the partnership.
The current members of the multisig wallet are:
Tailchakra - known project developer and Harmony validator, has been a part of the Harmony ecosystem and GFX team from very near the beginning.
Limi - Cryptopigs developer, incubated by the GFX team - both the project and the project’s lead has joined GFX for the road to greatness.
BadAtBlockchain - GFX solidity developer, known for the true on-chain generated NFT project Scribbles
HopeSlicer - GFX frontend developer, brought the GFX world to the next level. Currently working on Frey Bosses using Construct.
CryptoGainz - Tranquility City architect, a known and trusted Harmony validator.
Flu - Harmony Core team member, Harmony validator and multichain-wide BizDev!
Because the multisig currently consists of 6 owners, we request another Harmony Core team member to join the multisig for true security and transparency.
The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing.
What happens next is something that hasn’t often happened before. A world created around partnerships, intertwined projects and coordinated development. A project whose efforts will include rebranding the website, repurposing the world, and creating open source assets and supportive work. GFX is actively seeking partnerships, investments and mutual interest!
First off, the rebrand!
Both the website and the world are completely being rebranded, redesigned and redeveloped!
A new map, a fresh map! A map with endless possibilities. Expandable, extendable, explorable! Redesigned and revamped! A new, fresh colour scheme that will be rediscovered in all elements of GFX. Pop up screens showing fresh and clean data - with new modern, clean and clear fonts! All available data on one page, with GFX’s very own wiki, a dynamic FAQ and interactive, always updated roadmap!
Revamped 3D models, redesigned game mechanics and artists more motivated than ever! GFX will open source cryptids before launch, allowing other players and other developers to both play the game and to collaborate in the development! Bounties will be assigned, features requested and bug finds awarded!
The games, the website and the world, as well as the general theme of the project will be completely revamped! GFX has created beautiful style sheets to maintain look and feel in the overall design of the project. Clear color selections, logo variants, backgrounds, structure, and more!
Talent wins games, but teamwork and intelligence win championships.

Partnership grant allocation
The allocations associated with the partnership grant will be assigned to specific functions, allowing for true transparency.
Rebrand development (60%) - The majority of the grant will be allocated to developers and artists handling the rebrand development. The roadmap for the rebrand spans over a 4 month period containing massive quantities of assets and lines of code. The allocation will be used to ensure a $75/hr payment for existing and yet-to-onboard team members.
Events and marketing (20%) - Events include the broadest meaning of the word. The grant portion allocated to events will be used for both community virtual events, and physical events during conferences all over the world, designed to expand the GFX reach. GFX will physically attend conferences and host in-person AMA’s with existing and upcoming projects in the Harmony ecosystem. GFX will host booths for, and together with, Harmony projects and core team members.
Bounties (10%) - GFX represents communities, working together. The portion allocated to bounties will be used to set clear bug bounties, feature requests and asset reliefs, enabling off-team developers and artists to work together with GFX to create a better ecosystem. The allocated funds will be used as rewards for said submissions.
Workshops and community (5%) - GFX will partner with existing artists, and will create workshops to teach inspired new users and lower the barrier for Web3 art and development. The grant portion allocated to workshops will be used for both virtual and physical workshops, enabling an easy entry into the creative space of Harmony.
DAO (5%) - GFX is committed to create an expansive DAO to run the overall ecosystem. The grant portion allocated to the DAO will be used to both market and obtain DAO growth to further decentralize the project, thereby removing the single point of failure a hierarchy can create
