Intergalactic Gaming’s End of January Progress Report

It’s our first progress report of the new decade, and just over a month since we launched the IGGalaxy public beta v1.0!

To mark this launch, we hosted two FIFA 20 tournaments in collaboration with our newest partners, Mixtape Madness, which saw 32 players compete to be crowned the first PS4 and Xbox champions in the IGGalaxy!

Round 2 of GFT sale resumes!Round 2 of GFT sale resumes!

Want to participate in the GFT sale?

  1. Log in to the IGGalaxy: https://www.iggalaxy.com/login;
  2. Open wallet and select “Purchase GFT”;
  3. Confirm 12,500 TRX for 1 GFT. If you wish to purchase more than one, you will need to do so in separate transactions.

With the integration of Carbon’s infrastructure, remember that you can also purchase TRX directly via your IGWallet. To do so, click ‘Buy TRX’ in the wallet section and purchase with your credit card or Apple Pay. The fee for the transaction is 3.75%.

Please note:

  • To participate, you must have an account, an active wallet associated with your account, and TRX (including energy or TRX to cover cost) for transaction.
  • The smart contract will only allow 1 GFT purchase per transaction to prevent ‘whales’ purchasing all GFT in one transaction. This will not compromise your ability to purchase more than 1 GFT.
  • Due to the sale of tangible benefits associated with the GFT (such as the lifetime subscription), Intergalactic Gaming must pay 20% value-added tax (VAT), the above prices also include VAT.

Launch of IGNews

The relaunch of our IGNews page, though more of a back-end development, falls in line with our efforts to not only enhance, but track the effectiveness of our content marketing; specifically, in terms of monitoring and targeting website traffic. Following our transition from the alpha to beta phase of development, our developers were solely focused on building the competitive elements of the IGGalaxy, but in this time, also deployed the first phase of IGLabs.

Now, we can ensure that all content uploaded will have a greater search engine optimisation reach, which in turn will support our plans for acquiring new users. As such, this nicely leads us on to our journey to our first million users.

Journey to a Million Users Since launching the IGGalaxy v1.0, we have grown our user base from just over a thousand monthly active users to 3.1k, an increase of approximately 200%. By the end of this year, we forecast to increase our user base to over 50,000.

We must not only acquire users, but also build the IGGalaxy to retain users and minimise the drop-off rate from the IGGalaxy. There are therefore two product characteristics, in particular, that will greatly influence user retention: focusing on some of the world’s most popular esports titles, whilst rewarding all users, and ensuring that the features of the IGGalaxy encourage users to return.

Galactic Battles: Our Co-Founders’ Livestream on DLive!

DLive has begun it’s migration to the TRON network, promising the opportunity for greater exposure for TRON, BitTorrent, and the wider TRON ecosystem. A decentralised streaming platform, DLive will collaborate with BitTorrent to bring peer-to-peer content and live streams that aim to reward both content creators and content consumers for engagement.

DLive, originally native to the Lino blockchain, will begin its full migration to the TRON network on 20 April according to a recent livestream from Justin Sun. For more on this, including how BitTorrent’s BTT token will be integrated to DLive, click here.

Galactic Battles: Episode 1 This was our co-founders’ first-ever livestream, providing an opportunity to trial content that would engage our existing community base, and potentially attract new members.

Galactic Battles: Episode 1.Galactic Battles: Episode 1.

The format for the livestream involved Josh and Naeem competing in a triathlon of esports titles: Mortal Kombat 11, FIFA 20 and Fortnite; unfortunately, the loser would have their head shaved. This was followed by a Q&A session where Josh and Naeem answered questions put forward by members of the community in relation to the business and developmental plans for Intergalactic Gaming in the coming year.

  • When can we create our own tournaments?”
  • Will IGLabs be ready this year?
  • IG is mostly known within the TRON ecosystem. How do you plan to enter the esports mainstream arena and encourage adoption amongst your target end-users?”
  • Your partnership with Mixtape Madness seems a little one-sided. How come they have not been vocal about this partnership?”

Read the answers to these, and find out which unlucky co-founder lost the triathlon (and their hair)!

Raising Awareness for Australian Bushfires

The 2019/2020 Australian bushfires have been one of the most devastating events in Australia’s history. It has been recorded as Australia’s worst fire season, with at least 27 million acres of land burned; 1.25 billion animals lost; 29 fatalities; 2,500 homes destroyed. Scientists fear that of long-term damage to sensitive ecosystems that may never recover.

Community remains at the centre of Intergalactic Gaming’s company ethos; with it, we will not be where we are today. As such, this past month we got together with CoinSpot, an Australian crypto exchange, to launch our ‘Bushfire Relief’ campaign. We would like to thank CoinSpot for opening three crypto wallets specifically for the ‘Australia Bush Fire Relief’ that will accept donations of:

  • Bitcoin (BTC) - 14E6fV8Pt9KRPGunnVsCkBtU2VSaUyGMjr
  • Ethereum (ETH) - 0x2b1826d59395946840772cB98ef2B8511F1CbF5C
  • TRON (TRX) - TKSKNrbpwM9p8BarU6ZzMwT6CiEmwjswyT

All proceeds will be donated to the following:

  • Wildlife Rescue - WIRES (NSW Wildlife Information, Rescue and Education Service), Wildlife Victoria & Wildlife Rescue South Coast
  • Burrumbuttock Hay Runners
  • BlazeAid

Disclaimer: As donations will be made in crypto, they will not be eligible for any tax deduction or receipts within Australia.

FIFA 20 Esports Tournaments in the IGGalaxy: The IG FUT Cup!

Following our first FIFA Ultimate Team (FUT) tournaments two weeks ago (23/01/20-24/01/20), we have now hosted a total of four FIFA 20 esports tournaments in the IGGalaxy.

Like our first Intergalactic Madness tournaments, the IG FUT Cup was a bracket-style single-elimination format, meaning players had one opportunity to progress. These tournaments, however, were hosted in a single evening, allowing our developers to test the platform’s automation under shorter time constraints. More importantly, our developers could gather key insight to the user journey for quick-fire tournaments, which we expect to be the most common amongst our users.

Congratulations to the T-3 participants from our IG FUT Cup tournaments!Congratulations to the T-3 participants from our IG FUT Cup tournaments!

The tournament itself offered a combination of IGG rewards and FIFA Points for the prize pool.

Below, we have identified a few points that our developers will look to update in time for our next FIFA 20 tournaments:

  • Match chat
  • Streaming incentives
  • Mixture of FIFA game modes
  • Ease of platform use and navigation

Feedback has been provided, which will serve as a vital point of reference for our design and development team updating the IGGalaxy, but to read our IG FUT Cup review in full, click here.

Platform Patch Updates

At the beginning of the month, we outlined some platform patch updates for the IGGalaxy. Most notably, we have enhanced the platform’s security, implementing geo-fencing capabilities. Put simply, these measures will essentially require account holders to follow a verification link each time they log in from a different IP address.

Please note that this will occur more often for those that access the IGGalaxy via their mobile.

As many of you will already be aware, security is of paramount importance. The majority of our future user base that are gamers will have no prior experience with blockchain, and more specifically, wallet security. Considering they will be earning IGG, we want to ensure they feel safe storing their crypto-assets in the IGGalaxy; we do not want their first experiences of crypto to be negative, after all.

We also encourage all users to enable two-factor authentication. This can be Google Authenticator, Authy, or any other two-factor authentication service you feel comfortable with.

To catch up with our first public beta platform development update in full, click here.

A Look Ahead

Looking to the month ahead, we will host two more FIFA 20 tournaments; again, a Classic Online Mode, and one in FUT. After these tournaments, we will be satisfied with the first phase of public beta iteration, and will look to deploy the IGGalaxy’s tournament creation module. Once more, we will allow for sufficient iteration for this feature, and so, to help with this process, we will continue to encourage all users to submit feedback in the platform’s bug report form.

Tournament creation module coming soon!Tournament creation module coming soon!


On niTROn South Korea 2020 We appreciate that our community would love to see Intergalactic Gaming at niTROn this year; it is an event that we were very much looking forward to. However, due to the recent, and unfortunate outbreak of coronavirus, it is not something we would want to risk…especially before fully deploying the IGGalaxy.


As always, we want to thank our existing community members for welcoming our newest inhabitants to the IGGalaxy, and supporting them with their questions!

The impact coronavirus is having on gaming

The impact coronavirus is having on gaming

The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic continues to disrupt all aspects of life. With sporting events cancelled until further notice, even many esports circuits are postponing live events that have already been scheduled. As industries begin to temporarily close, which brings with it great levels of disruption, it is advised by governments and health officials that the best form of cure is to self-quarantine and thus reduce the risk of the infection spreading further.
