Filling up on POPCORN! with Gala Film

Filling up on POPCORN! with Gala Film

The first two episodes of David Bianchi’s dystopian sci-fi thriller series, RZR, are officially live, only on Gala Film. Anyone with a Gala account can watch for free, and new episodes will drop each week!

Have Some POPCORN!

Owners of RZR Moment NFTs are eligible for daily rewards based on the platform views of the series. These ownership rewards are the core of Gala Film’s empowering approach to production and distribution of exclusive video content.

The Gala Film Litepaper outlining the ecosystem’s economy and current plans for distribution of rewards has been updated to reflect the latest developments. A new reward structure will soon be implemented in which units of POPCORN! are awarded directly to users, rather than in buckets. This will take effect after all outstanding POPCORN! Buckets have been distributed to operators of Theater Nodes from before the launch.

While RZR is the only series on the platform, the NFT owner portion of all available “content incentive” rewards will be distributed to RZR Moment owners. In the future when other pieces of content (other shows and films) are added, these rewards will be proportionally weighted to those programs that receive more views.

In the long term, these rewards will be issued as $FILM, directly to owners’ accounts. However, until the initial token generation event of $FILM (coming within the next couple months), rewards will be issued via the placeholder token, POPCORN!.

When $FILM is created and first issued, it will be distributed to holders of POPCORN!, converting all POPCORN! To $FILM at a set rate. The rate of automatic exchange for POPCORN is 1 POPCORN = 10 $FILM*.

*These are the subject-to-change numbers listed in the Gala Film Litepaper.

POPCORN! Buckets

Throughout the in-development stages of the Gala Film platform, POPCORN! has been used to reward operators of Gala Film’s Theater Nodes. POPCORN! Buckets of various sizes were also found in some Common Ground World Mystery Boxes, which are no longer for sale. Operators have received POPCORN! each day for which their Theater Nodes (formerly known as a “Gala Film Nodes”) were active for the minimum 6-hour requirement. Additionally, a bonus “streak” system (described below) was employed to ensure that extra POPCORN! rewards were given to those who operated their nodes for consecutive days.

Following the platform launch going forward, both NFT owners and Node operators will receive single units of POPCORN! instead of buckets. When this switch is made, the issuance of POPCORN! Buckets will be retired. Then when $FILM is first generated, all POPCORN! (whether single unit or Bucket) will be redeemable for $FILM.

Number of POPCORN! units in each bucket:

Welcome Bucket = 1 POPCORN!

Small Bucket = 10 POPCORN!
Medium Bucket = 25 POPCORN!
Large Bucket = 50 POPCORN!
Extra Large Bucket = 100 POPCORN!
Mega Bucket = 150 POPCORN!

These “Bucket” items will remain Buckets in your Collection until the $FILM token generation event, when all owners will have the option to exchange POPCORN! Buckets for $FILM, according to the values above + additional TBA streak bonuses.

POPCORN! That Never Goes Stale

Unlike your belly, your Gala account has room for all the POPCORN! you can gather. If you’re looking to start a new POPCORN! collection in anticipation of $FILM, this is your chance! Start collecting RZR Moments as soon as you can, and consider becoming a Theater Node operator to power the future of film!

Extra Action

There are plenty of ways to get rewards in addition to collecting Moments and running a Theater Node. Certain “Ecosystem Supporting Behaviors” will also allow you to collect POPCORN!, including some that are immediately available with the RZR premiere and platform launch!

Early Access Details

Those who have passionately supported Gala Film by owning NFTs or operating Theater Nodes will be the first to explore the riveting universe of RZR with exclusive access all weekend long leading up to the global premiere on Sunday, April 14th.

Unlock Early Access to:

Episode 1: “THE DANGERS OF WISDOM”

How to Unlock Early Access

For Gala Film enthusiasts who have yet to acquire any Gala Film NFTs but are eager to partake in the Early Access experience, there’s a golden opportunity awaiting. By purchasing a RZR Moment Pack, which includes a single NFT collectible Moment from an episode of RZR, not only will you unlock the door to early viewing, but you will also tap into the regular platform rewards that come with owning a Moment.

The Significance of RZR Moments

These Moments embody the essence of engagement and ownership within the Gala Film ecosystem. By holding a Moment, you’re not just a passive viewer; you become an active participant in the platform, receiving regular rewards and enjoying a closer connection to the content you love.

Because the Gala Film platform has not yet launched its official utility token, $FILM, a placeholder token called POPCORN! will initially be issued as the reward for both Theater Node operators and NFT Moment owners. The incredible news is that as long as RZR is the only production on the newly launched platform, 100% of the NFT owner rewards allocated to content incentivization will go to the owners of RZR Moments.

Unlock the Thrill with RZR Premiere Mystery Boxes

Unlock the Thrill with RZR Premiere Mystery Boxes

The suspense keeps building for the sci-fi tech thriller series that has everyone in web3 talking. From the visionary mind of creator David Bianchi, RZR promises to kick things off for Gala Film with a real bang, inviting you into the gritty and surreal world where computers collide with the human brain.

First off, if you’re not as psyched as we are for Sunday’s exclusive global premiere, it’s probably because you haven’t watched the new trailer. Do it now.

Mystery Boxes

Ready to dig deeper into the world and lore of RZR, giving yourself multiple shots at winning exclusive merch, creator experiences and more in the process? Then RZR Mystery Boxes are just for you.

Each Mystery Box contains four items and four chances to win.

Some Mystery Boxes will be yours for free just for completing simple tasks on the Gala Film platform, like watching episodes, sharing and more.

Some Mystery Boxes have chances at rarer items. These will cost you $3.99 in the Gala Film store. They’re called Premiere Mystery Boxes. Check out the list below for an idea of what you might find inside.

Director Cuts

Opening Mystery Boxes will primarily reveal Shards, which you can collect and assemble to unlock Director Cuts. Once unlocked, these Director Cuts reveal new video content that will pull you even deeper into the story’s labyrinth, revealing behind the scenes footage, additional backstories and more.

Shards

Shards are the building blocks of Director Cuts. Each Shard is assigned a different rarity, meaning some are tougher to find than others and some Director Cuts are more difficult to complete than others.

Learn more about Mystery Boxes and Shards on your RZR Collection page.

Bronze Shards are the most common and easiest to find in free Mystery Boxes.

Silver Shards are more rare, often found in Premiere Mystery Boxes.

Golden Shards are the most scarce, contributing to the toughest to assemble Director Cuts.

In total, there are 12 unique Director Cuts available for “RZR.”

Director Cut 1 = 2 Bronze Shards

Director Cuts 2-6 = 3 Bronze Shards + 1 Silver Shard

Director Cuts 7-10 = 1 Bronze Shard + 1 Silver Shard + 1 Golden Shard

Director Cuts 11-12 = 1 Bronze Shard + 2 Silver Shards + 3 Golden Shards

With 46 unique Shards and increasing degrees of collectible difficulty for assembling higher numbered Director Cuts, snagging them all will not be an easy feat. But if you do manage to collect every Shard and unlock every Director Cut, you’ll have unparalleled insight into the world and story of “RZR.”

Premiere Mystery Box: What’s Inside?

In addition to Shards that will unlock Director Cuts when completed as described above, you’ll sometimes find amazing prizes in Premiere Mystery Boxes. Check out the items and odds below!

Premiere Mystery Box Shard Odds

While unique numbered Shards are needed for each of the 12 Director Cuts, the odds of finding Shards is based primarily on Shard rarity:

  • 60% of Shards are Bronze
  • 30% of Shards are Silver
  • 10% of Shards are Golden

Premiere Additional Prizes

While you’ll only find Shards in the no-cost (Starter, standard) Mystery Boxes, the $3.99 Premiere Mystery Boxes may contain additional prizes from the list below. One lucky Mystery Box will even contain the grand prize of a Gala Film Theater Node License.
