Thank you for participating in this Alpha test of KOOOLA City (the metaverse created by Real), starting from April 1st to April 15th, 2022.
The purpose of this test is to make sure the Unreal Engine is reliable enough, and to show the potential players the fantastic views of the city we built.
We feel that this test has been a great opportunity for us to progress a lot — not only in the development of the community, but also the infrastructure and the mechanism. We also saw this progression occur with our users, and we believe it will further improve our public beta experience in the future.
Understanding KOOOLA City
KOOOLA City is a virtual city in the sky with AAA graphics. Realy focuses on street culture by merging real world names including fashion brands, graffiti artists, chic toy brands, rappers and skateboard brands to Metaverse.
In the present version, the city consists of nature, buildings, streets, arts, stadiums, and so on. Users will be immersed in street culture. Avatar is the only certificate to enter the Metaverse. Besides, people can buy clothes to decorate themselves.
Airdropping Realy Assets
On our partner platforms of Bybit, Galaxy and FTX, we airdropped the holders of a series of Realy assets (Avatar NFT, Bearache, Cubeing, Realy voucher NFT holders and virtual clothes NFT), as our appreciation to users’ long-term support before the test:
We also gave out assets as rewards, to those who invited friends to our community and were highly engaged with us. We have launched several events on social platforms, such as “Building up with Realy” in Discord, some promotional activities “Realy Alpha Test Avatar Airdrop”
Highlights of the Test
In order to make the community more engaging, enjoyable, and easier to play, we hosted 10+ activities, such as Hide and Seek, Who’ Spy and Just Dance. Users could interact with others to finish the task and earn rewards. At the same time, for new traffic acquisition and activation, we launched a series of activities in Discord, including Hot Social, Bug Submit, Hot Youtube and Avatar Story.
On April 6th, we opened the first gathering of members for the first time. The number of participants reached the peak value of the channel, and the carrying capacity of each channel reached the extreme value.
On April 7th, as the Hot Day event brought us huge traffic, we decided to extend the deadline until the end of the test. Users don’t have to worry about not completing tasks on time due to network congestion or other reasons.
After removing the duplicates, a total of 1,200 people were invited via Realy community and social accounts. Over 800 members took part in. In this round, we have put in 3000 avatar NFTs, and 12,000 people participated in the event. In the future, we will sell Avatar NFT to the public and further expand the community. Let’s look forward to the public beta.

Plan for Public Test
a. Virtual Concert
We’re planning a virtual concert with KNOWKNOW, a rapper from Mainland China. He is one of the team members of the Chinese famous rap group Higher Brothers. His main masterpieces include “R&B All Night” and “Mr. Bentley”.
In addition to a number of his popular songs, in the first concert in KOOOLA, KNOWKNOW will perform the theme song of KOOOLA, which he specially composed for. This is also the first time the song will be fully exposed to the public.
The concert will be held in KOOOLA CITY from 23 April 21:00 to 23 May 21:00, and the tickets will be launched in a few days.
Due to the limited time, we’ve already had 24 designated images in the first version. And the function of making your own faces is already under development, please look forward to the next version. Based on the scarcity of those avatars, we’ve divided them into 3 categories: SSR, SR, and R.
The Mystery Box of Avatar will be launched in a very days.
In the next release, expected June. The launch of the pet function, including raising pets, pet socialization, pet upgrades, and other functions
d.Cooperation with other brands
Compared with other projects, we mainly focus on street culture and have limited editions. REALY only avatars of collaboration artists and KOLs, virtual functional products, virtual concerts, which brings in brands and artists collaboration, and so on, truly merging city life and street culture into the Metaverse. Towards the non-crypto users, we can bring them to our Metaverse through their favorite celebrities and KOLs’ collaboration events. We have already signed some rappers, artists and KOLs in China and the United States, and will gradually launch exclusive virtual concerts, exhibitions and exclusive NFTs for them. Please stay tuned for these.
e. What’s more
In the future, we hope that everyone can use Realy to create their own NFT game characters and anyone can create in-game assets. The threshold for Realy is not high: Avatar is the only certificate to enter the Metaverse. And the price is 10 Reals.
Under the influence of everyday characters and incentives in the game, this cost will come back in about a week. In this way, we are breaking the high threshold of the Metaverse.
