From the on-chain transaction records of Gossamer Seed, it can be seen that the contract has been deployed on June 15, and Mint will not end until June 18. After Mint ended, Gossamer’s first tweet was long overdue, implying that this NFT was the key to “The Heap” (the hometown of the protagonist in Gossamer’s original book), and predicted that there would be further announcements on June 22. action.
Since then, with the “Check your wallet” released by Gossamer’s official push, the shape of the Gossamer Seed has changed twice: first, it changed into the “cocoon” shape, and then “hatched” into the image of a firefly. In the latest news released by the official Twitter yesterday, it was revealed that there is also “the last evolution”, and then there will be a more in-depth understanding of the “Gossamer world”.
In fact, this offering wasn’t a whim. As early as June 11, Bron Studios officially announced that DIG CEO Haydn Snape has joined the BRON team. He will serve as a consultant for its entry into the Web3 field and provide BRON IP with strategic support in NFT, tokens and markets.

Their game, the first P2E game based on a TV show, could reshape the way users engage with content.
