Transparency- Txs (Neurolanche)

Hello dear Astar Network community;

As you know, at Astar Network, we support dual machines on both Wasm and Evm sides. The Wasm support here was announced as an important event last year. As a community, we have well understood the importance of Wasm and have spent all our time in this area as Neurolanche, trying to develop this field as much as we can.

We have released Astar Strike, the first unity game of Polkadot, using Ink Language and Wasm infrastructure. We have become the pioneering community in transitioning other NFT collections into our ecosystem by providing Astar Strike integration to all important communities in the entire Polkadot ecosystem.

At the same time, by launching Astar Network’s first Wasm NFT collection, we have become the most valuable and highest floor price NFT collection in the Polkadot ecosystem.

In this development process, we have left our entire career behind and spent our time expanding these areas, putting in a lot of effort and time to do our best.

Unfortunately, due to the inadequacy of tools on the Wasm side, another project developing on the Wasm side, and the shift of the development process entirely to Layer 2 following Astar ZkEvm, we are entering this process to rebuild our projects from scratch with a new infrastructure.

Until today, we have tried to develop only our projects and the Astar Network ecosystem without making any profit from all our dapp staking revenues. Unfortunately, the lack of tools like dapp radar on the Wasm side not showing txs and TVL, and our shortcomings in data presentation have created a significant problem.

As Neurolanche, during the development process of Astar Strike, we decided to restructure our project to integrate with mobile devices using the Account Abstraction infrastructure by making a new investment of 40,000 dollars.

Contract of investment: Astar_Strike_Agreement_Neurolanche_X_Labs__Illumate / 17.01.2024 - Google Docs

Update Notion of Astar Strike:

You can examine the weekly data, txs, and others of Astar Strike from the contracts below.

Astar Strike EVM Smart Contract Address: 0xf5C1A88e4461409Aa7623b4c2645DD2Fbb5b59c2

In addition, we will continue to work hard to develop the Astar Network ecosystem; we will continue to publish our daily and monthly reports and maintain our transparent management approach.

We thank the dear Astar Network community for supporting us during this process. All dapp stake revenues spent under this title will be presented in a report individually.

Also we are launching our AI project at Astar ZkEvm at end of February or beginning of march. Treaser at 29 January

Hello

How convenient that you post this soon after we called out your project a few days ago, and exactly about this Illumate team.

It looks like this transparency was not called for or asked for by anyone.

Did you just happen to have the urge to do this?

Did you happen to pull this template contract and make adjustments out of nowhere in a rush to prove something to the Astar Network forum community? Because we said something a few days ago?

You, your team and fake accounts reported our twitter account and got it suspended. We were questioning, informing and showing how suspicious some of you and Neurolanche’s claims are.

And specifically we called out this Illumate team and your teams association. This is the team that created the LinkedIn 10 months ago, and currently has 6 followers on their twitter account.

This is again, more suspicious actions on your teams part, directly influence by our calling out on Twitter. We assume you know this team personally. Due to timing of your project and the creation of this studio, we assume that there is something else deeper you are not disclosing.

We also posted about the “Metahumans” tool you fail to acknowledge in the majority of post containing imagery from Metahumans. We mentioned the possible game assets your team buys from the Unreal Engine asset stores and conveniently plays it off as the teams creations.

Your behavior of not accrediting and using imagery of other projects and tools is shallow and in bad faith. This is a behavior that all Polkadot and Astar Network users should know about and make their own conclusions from.

Hello, thank you for your article and research. Please contact us before constructing complete theories in your head. Let us answer your questions.

1- Illumates Studio is an organization based in Turkey. We are working with them for the development of Astar Strike. Below, you can find all our official agreements to date. We are building all of them ourselves.

2- Metahuman:

In our whitepaper and explanations, we mention using Unreal Engine 5 and modifying the metahuman plugin to achieve higher resolution. I hope you do not expect us to try making our own game engine.

3- Forum:

We report all our developments daily through the Astar Forum. You can access all the links there.

forum.astar.network/t/neurolanche-…

4- Interaction:

So far, we have not resorted to any plugin to increase our Twitter activity. All our interactions are natural because I am one of the biggest influencers in Turkey.

5- Development:

We are the most developing project in the AstarNetwork and Polkadot ecosystem. You can access all our latest GitHub data, which is more than the entire ecosystem, through the Astar Forum.

6- Vision:

We spend days almost without sleep dedicating ourselves to the development of Neurolanche. Please, instead of concocting complete theories, contact us. Do not try to slander us with false news while we have placed Neurolanche at the core point of our lives. We continue to develop without collecting 1 Turkish lira so far because we have the richest treasury income in the ecosystem.

And we spend all our earnings on development.

I hope I have provided sufficient answers. You can ask all your questions. We are the fairest and most transparent community in the Polkadot ecosystem.

Have a good day.

0.0 Abstract

Determination, work and happiness!:ringer_planet:

As Neurolanche, we started off 2024 with momentum. We completed January with 3 whitepapers, new investments, more than 28 daily meetings and hundreds of hours of work. :building_construction:

Let’s explore what we’ve accomplished in Astar Network & Polkadot.:page_facing_up:

In January 2024, Neurolanche X Labs embarked on a transformative journey, as detailed in our comprehensive monthly report. This period was marked by significant innovation and strategic development in blockchain and AI technologies, reflecting our unwavering dedication to pushing the boundaries of what’s possible in these domains. A key highlight of the month was our investment of $40,000 in the development of ZkStrike, a pioneering game at the forefront of blending gaming with blockchain technology, signifying our commitment to revolutionizing the gaming sector.

Simultaneously, we laid the foundation for future integration with advanced blockchain infrastructures, such as Astar Network’s ZkEVM and Phala Network’s Phat Contracts. These integrations are expected to significantly enhance the functionality and security of both ZkStrike and Firolauss projects, optimizing gaming experiences and digital interactions. This initiative aims to bridge the traditional and blockchain gaming communities, ensuring user data privacy and security within AI applications.

Our strategic partnership with Dapp Labs for layer 2 expansion and the implementation of Account Abstraction infrastructure for Firolauss and ZkStrike underscore our proactive approach in enhancing the scalability and efficiency of our blockchain applications. We are dedicated to seamlessly onboarding thousands of Web2 users to the blockchain ecosystem, utilizing advanced technologies like Phala Network Aleph Zero and Astar Network’s ZkEVM, making it more accessible and user-friendly.

Moreover, the development of Firolauss, a cutting-edge AI project that leverages Unreal Engine’s Meta Human capabilities for creating lifelike digital humans, exemplifies our commitment to merging AI advancements with blockchain’s decentralization and security features. This initiative, aimed at offering users unprecedented interactive experiences, highlights our meticulous focus on creating a seamless and intuitive user interface, account abstraction for ease of use, and the exploration of scalable, secure blockchain solutions.

Our proactive approach to community engagement, transparency through daily meetings, and strategic dissemination of information via reports and video recordings further emphasize our dedication to our community and stakeholders. The $40,000 investment in ZkStrike, our partnership with Dapp Labs, and the deployment of Account Abstraction infrastructure collectively illustrate Neurolanche X Labs’ commitment to enhancing gaming experiences, ensuring user data privacy and security in AI applications, and fostering a symbiotic relationship between AI, gaming, and blockchain technologies.

As we continue to explore and integrate these diverse technological platforms, we reaffirm our position as a leader in the convergence of blockchain technology, artificial intelligence, and gaming. Our goal remains to create a more immersive, secure, and user-friendly digital future for all, demonstrating our commitment to innovation and strategic development in the realms of blockchain and AI technologies.

1.0 Neurolanche Monthly Report: A Month Filled with Progress and Transparency

Since the end of 2023, we have committed to daily team meetings aimed at meeting the essential requirements for rapid decision-making and the continuous, strong progression of the project. One of the key aspects of these daily meetings is the production of comprehensive reports that provide valuable information about our daily decision-making processes and decisions to the community. The strategic direction set by the core team for the project, the implementation of these methods, especially in the area of meeting reporting that includes significant meetings with the Phala Core Team, Aleph Zero BizDev, Polimec Core Team, has significantly accelerated the development of the project. Every day, we are dedicated to solving project challenges quickly by collaboratively reflecting on solutions. Additionally, daily meetings encourage a culture of continuous improvement by providing opportunities to critically think about the decisions made. These daily meetings have been beneficial in dissecting complex challenges encountered while developing contracts for our dApp. The collaborative environment allows us to explore various solutions by leveraging the collective expertise within the core team.

As we delve into the complexities of smart contract development, we discuss innovative approaches in line with our commitment to code optimization, security measures, and providing high-quality products. We also place special emphasis on the design and user experience (UX) aspects of our projects. We believe that a transparent and user-friendly interface is critical for the success and widespread adoption of our applications. By reflecting on the design strategy and improving UX, we aim to create a more interactive and intuitive environment for users.

Besides discussing complex technical issues, these meetings also play a significant role in establishing a systematic framework for managing daily tasks. Recognizing the importance of a structured workflow, we implemented a comprehensive daily task list for our core team and ambassadors. This initiative aims to streamline our operations and ensure that every team member is aligned with the overall project goals. In meetings, the completion of these daily tasks is assessed, promoting accountability and transparency within the Neurolanche ecosystem. The dynamic nature of the blockchain industry requires agility, and our daily task management system allows us to quickly adapt to emerging challenges and opportunities. For the core team, this system serves as a roadmap for daily priorities, enabling us to allocate resources effectively and focus on key objectives. Ambassadors receive clear instructions, significantly contributing to the project’s success daily. Regular reviews of task completion provide valuable insights into project progress and our performance.

This data-driven approach allows us to identify areas for improvement, refine our strategy, and celebrate successes, creating a culture of continuous improvement. The impact of these daily meetings and reports is clearly seen in the increased engagement in the project and the growing transparency with our community.

Throughout January, we shared a total of 16 daily reports summarizing our activities with our community, conducted more than 28 daily Neurolanche meetings, and had over 48 hours of discussions. The reason for the number of reports being slightly less than the number of meetings is that some meetings were short sessions immediately following planning or did not have enough information for a full report.

Recently, in addition to text reports shared on Discord/Telegram, we introduced video recordings of meetings. This allows anyone interested to fully follow the discussions on the meeting agenda. This represents a significant step towards increasing transparency. Our commitment to the community is unwavering, and we will continue to prioritize transparency and implement our development plans. We appreciate the ongoing support of the community and look forward to reaching new milestones together. Stay tuned for more updates and progress in the coming months.

Furthermore, as the Neurolanche X Labs team, we have decided to publish a monthly report showcasing all our development processes, expenditures, and partnerships we’ve made. In this monthly report, you will find significant data including our partnerships with ZkStrike, Firolauss AI, Nerox Token, and marketing while examining our overall expenditures transparently.

With love,
Neurolanche X Labs, Core Team

2.0 zkStrike (Formerly known as Astar Strike) General Developments

One of the biggest problems of Web3 games is their inability to reach Web2 users, their insufficient player base, and their failure to deliver the latest technology to the end user. This month, as the Neurolanche X Labs team, we rolled up our sleeves to find solutions to these problems and deliver our GameFi project, ZkStrike, to the end user in the most accurate way. We invested $40,000 from our dApp staking revenues into the development process of ZkStrike. With this new investment, we secured an agreement that will include many updates ranging from different game modes, mobile integration, mission systems, clan systems, new performance updates, new game maps, to an NFT Marketplace. After long-term efforts, we also defined a new roadmap for ZkStrike. Along with these, we published our new whitepaper and transitioned to a blockchain infrastructure that can reach daily Web2 users. This month, we started working on the Astar Network ZkEvm and account abstraction infrastructure, which will be a significant building block for ZkStrike, while presenting important research reports that include Phala Network’s unique phat contracts. Let’s take a detailed look at what happened this month in the ZkStrike game, where the Neurolanche X Labs team spent a significant amount of time.

2.1 zkStrike Whitepaper 2.0

This month, the Neurolanche X Labs team updated three whitepapers, the most important of which was rewriting the whitepaper for the ZkStrike game (formerly known as Astar Strike), which is currently in active closed beta. After extensive research and development, we rolled up our sleeves to redesign the ZkStrike game and move it to the Account Abstraction infrastructure. With this new infrastructure, we aim to offer a game using the Astar Network ZkEvm to Web2 users, bringing blockchain technology to daily life for users far from Web3.

Summary: zkStrike is a groundbreaking project that redefines the intersection of gaming and blockchain technology, offering players a unique and immersive experience. At the heart of this innovation lies the versatile NEROX token, which serves as the backbone of the ZkStrike ecosystem. This token not only empowers players, enhancing their gaming adventures, but also plays a pivotal role in bridging the gap for Web2 users and traditional gamers through the revolutionary concept of account abstraction. With NEROX tokens, players unlock a plethora of exciting features, including purchasing chests, participating in the staking mechanism, and engaging in bets on in-game events and leaderboards.
The project’s another standout feature is the Chest System, where NEROX tokens grant access to chests containing character costumes, weapon skins, and valuable NFTs. These tokens are subject to a burn mechanism, ensuring a controlled token supply and long-term value. The integration of a Staking Mechanism further incentivizes player engagement, as NFT collections form clans to earn NEROX rewards. ZkStrike also introduces a Betting System, allowing players to wager NEROX tokens on in-game events, enhancing the overall gaming experience. The NFT Store and Marketplace enable players to trade in-game assets, contributing to the dynamic blockchain-based economy. Additionally, ZkStrike simplifies transaction fees through account abstraction, providing a user-friendly experience by allowing players to execute transactions directly through the in-game interface. In summary, ZkStrike’s innovative approach combines blockchain technology, innovative tokenomics, and the convenience of account abstraction to create genuine value for participants, ushering in a new era for both Web2 users and traditional gamers alike.

Whitepaper 2.0: Summary - zkStrike - Web3 Multiplayer FPS Game

2.2 Game Development (What We’ve Done with Illumate Studios)

Neurolanche and Illumate Studios began developing Astar Strike six months ago, and with a recent investment of $40,000 from Neurolanche, the game is now entering a significant update phase. Coinciding with the anticipated release of Astar Network’s Ethereum Layer2 network, Astar zkEVM, in February, Astar Strike has been renamed to zkStrike. This update not only brings a name change but also broadens the project’s impact by aligning it more closely with its content and vision.

Astar Strike already features a map, deathmatch mode, customizable avatars enhanced with AI, a comprehensive database system for player public data, Web3 wallet connection, NFT authentication, and a play-to-earn system based on smart contracts, merging blockchain and gaming elements through GameFi. With the upcoming major updates, zkStrike is set to be rejuvenated.

The first phase of the update includes significant performance improvements, extensive revisions to the codebase, UI and UX enhancements, and a new map. Next week, an announcement will be made calling for volunteers from the community to test the first major update. During this period, the mobile version of zkStrike is also being developed and will soon enter the testing phase.

By rebranding to zkStrike and aligning with the launch of Astar zkEVM, Neurolanche aims to expand its strength as the first multiplayer FPS game based on Unity within the Polkadot and Astar ecosystems, extending its reach to Ethereum and, crucially, targeting both traditional gamers and Web2 users. This approach is aimed at leveraging blockchain’s advantages to create the largest gaming ecosystem with a significant in-game economy.

Our first step to expand our player base globally was to enhance game performance, thereby lowering the entry barrier and reaching more users. Following major improvements in performance and updates to new maps, the game’s mobile version will be released. Furthermore, with Astar zkEVM, we plan to perfectly merge blockchain and gaming disciplines through account abstraction with Gelato and Safe, aiming for peak user experience and adoption. In a recent meeting with Gelato, we discussed integrating account abstraction into our products and potential Unity SDK integration.

With account abstraction, we aim to appeal to traditional gamers and Web2 users, exploring marketing strategies in this area with Illumate. By combining our strengths, we discussed effective ways to merge Neurolanche’s community with Illumate’s gaming communities, creating a hybrid community and a vibrant gaming ecosystem. We’ll share more on these developments soon.

Additionally, zkStrike will see major updates by mid-year, including the launch of a mobile app, in-game voice chat, more comprehensive character customization, mission and achievement systems, a chest system, custom skins, customizable weapons, blockchain-based NFT storage for in-game digital assets, integration with an NFT store and marketplace, utilization of the soon-to-be-released Nerox token, a clan concept merging NFT communities through a staking mechanism, a RedFlag mode for clan gameplay, and the most comprehensive and widely appealing Battle Royal mode, Survival Of Astar.

3.0 Firolauss General Developments

In the last quarter of 2023, we initiated discussions on the ideas behind the Firolauss AI project with our community. Throughout this period, we brainstormed with our community on how Firolauss could be built and started the design phase of our project. This month, after thorough research and development, we meticulously designed our whitepaper and shared it with our community. In addition, we are continuing our discussions with a company supported by Tubitak. Along with these developments, this month marked the first step in the development processes for Firolauss with the release of its new whitepaper, moving the project from draft to development phase. Below, you will find the developments we made during this time and the new features added.

3.1 Firolauss Whitepaper 2.0

When looking at current Web3 projects, most aim to capitalize on the artificial intelligence trend, yet many face challenges due to the user-unfocused nature of blockchain technology on Web3. As the Neurolanche X Labs team, we have revisited the Firolauss project from the ground up and moved to a significant infrastructure with a new update this month.

Whitepaper: Abstract - Firolauss AI - (FAI)

3.2 Firolauss Development (R&D)

Firolauss AI is an artificial intelligence mobile application powered by Metahuman avatars, offering a friend, mentor, or assistant role through a pre-designed humanoid digital avatar, your own creation, or your digital twin. It enables voice conversations with options to choose your avatar’s voice or even converse with a clone of your own voice, capable of emotional responses, human-like conversations, and memory for more natural interactions. Additionally, it leverages blockchain technology for user privacy and data usage agreements, ensuring sensitive data is encrypted and stored securely, and for subscription management, making it a blockchain-powered dApp!

With the design of Firolauss and the writing of its whitepaper, our R&D efforts have accelerated. We continue to fine-tune and extensively test artificial intelligence models sensitive to human emotions and behaviors, capable of human-like communication, using ChatGPT LLM models. Alongside these significant advancements, we are also focusing on identifying the most suitable technology and infrastructure to run Metahuman characters on mobile applications, researching realistic body and facial animations for Metahuman characters, and working on various studies and optimization methods for text-to-speech technology and synchronizing mouth movements with speech animations. At this stage, we are exploring various Account Abstraction SDKs for the integration of blockchain into our Firolauss AI application and the use of account abstraction within Unreal Engine.

3.4 Firolauss - Phala Network

One critical aspect in an artificial intelligence application is the meticulous and careful handling of data shared by users during their interaction with the AI model, as well as the data received in response. The storage and utilization of this information must be conducted with precision and attention. Utilizing the infrastructure of Phala Network and Phat Contracts allows for the secure storage of sensitive data in isolated environments provided by Trusted Execution Environments (TEE), ensuring that only authorized users can perform designated tasks.

In Firolauss AI, we plan to use the Phala Network infrastructure to securely store users’ sensitive data in an isolated and secure environment with great diligence.

We are employing Astar zkEVM in conjunction with account abstraction to facilitate user logins via traditional Web2 methods such as email and social media, while also generating Astar zkEVM smart wallets. Our strategy includes integrating the subscription system with the Nerox token, thereby enabling users to expend Nerox tokens on Astar zkEVM for the use of more sophisticated AI model and advanced AI features. Additionally, we plan to enable the acquisition of Nerox tokens within application through mainstream payment methods like Visa and Mastercard, thus smoothly integrating Astar zkEVM for Web2 AI users, unbeknownst to them about the underlying blockchain infrastructure.

3.6 Firolauss - Aleph Zero

Firolauss AI intends to utilize the Aleph Zero blockchain network, renowned for its speed, scalability, and low transaction fees, to securely manage user data processing and privacy agreements. This network is designed to enable users to sign a form concerning the emotional and behavioral methods to be integrated into AI, along with the legal justifications for their use, providing on-chain proof of these actions. Our AI application, developed as a mobile app, will initiate new transactions every time a user signs the agreement. These transactions will be processed in the background, seamlessly without impacting the user experience, highlighting the potential of Aleph Zero to become an integral part of daily digital interactions.

4.0 Neurolanche Ambassador

In January 2024, we launched the Neurolanche Ambassador Program, inviting some of the most prominent figures from the Polkadot and Astar ecosystems to help us share educational content in the native languages of the key countries that make up our community.

The goal of our program is to provide our community with high-quality information, build educational content, and offer personalized assistance, addressing all the inquiries our community may have about our projects. The Neurolanche Ambassador Program is structured into two tiers: Head Ambassadors and Ambassador. Each tier has its specific requirements, responsibilities, rewards, and selection processes.

Starting this February, the ambassador program will feature a continuous application form, allowing any member to apply and have the opportunity to be selected to join the Neurolanche Ambassador team.

Overview

At the beginning of January, we published our monthly roadmap. By completing all the steps on the roadmap, we achieved our goals. In addition, we informed our community about what we are doing technically and what innovations we will offer through our medium content. We introduced the token utilities we will release to our users. By granting access permission to one of Polkadot’s most important communities, the DED community, we have gained a significant user base for the Astar Strike game.

By participating in the Twitter space event on Polkadot’s official account, we presented the innovations we will make in the GameFi sector to the Polkadot community. We educated the users by sharing the weekly metrics of Astar Strike. By activating our YouTube channel, we started sharing recordings of our daily meetings and prepared a more transparent platform.

While all our developments continue, we also prepared a Notion for users to follow, creating a panel where we will gather all our work together. We started to create a strong business plan by partnering with Dapp Labs. We rolled up our sleeves to become a globally recognized project on the Layer 2 side.

Panel to follow everthing:

As we continue our developments in the Astar Network and Polkadot ecosystem, we are determined to introduce everyone to the Neurolanche projects.

ZkStrike mobile will be released in the second week of March, and by fully transitioning to an account abstraction infrastructure, we aim to onboard Web2 users into the ZkEVM ecosystem.

Furthermore, if you look at our published manifesto, you will see all the details. To be honest, we expect to reach at least 50,000 applications next week with the testnet applications.

For each product we anticipate, the average number of daily active users is expected to exceed 5000. We are working in collaboration with dApp Labs. Our main goal, together with both AI and ZkStrike, is to reach more than 10,000 daily active users. Currently, the Astar Network has an average daily user count of over 5000. Considering these factors, we aim to accomplish all of these within the month of March.

Both Firolauss and ZkStrike with account abstraction infrastructure will be released in March. Of course, this is contingent on the ZkEVM launch happening.

You can check out the new ZkStrike whitepaper and our manifesto below.
