Professions

Every gopher will have one of the seven professions below, each with their own perks deeply intertwined with GGMC’s utility.
The profession of your gopher depends on the assets it has.

Masters of any profession get two votes in the Juniper Room(DAO voting) due to their valued experience.

Royals

Royals lead the kingdom of Goof and earn a tax on pay-outs to all classes. As they are decendants of the great Aldricus himself, they also get three votes in the Juniper Room.

Merchants

Merchants get a % of secondary market royalties for their advice on economic policy. Merchants also get two votes in the Juniper Room.

Oracles

Oracles may submit predictions for the following quater.
The closest three guesses will get 100% of the collective pay-out for the Oracles.

Wizards

Wizards get boosted DAO pay-outs in three tiers: Apprentice, Expert and Master.

Warriors

Warriors get a small boost to DAO and mining pay-outs in three tiers. They also have a small chance to recover the pay-out from pesky thieves!

Thieves

Thieves steal from other thieves every quarter. Thieves are banished from the Juniper Room!

Miners

Miners get boosted mining pay-outs in three tiers: Apprentice, Expert and Master.

Additional Utility

  • Holders gather at the Round Table in Goof Castle to vote on key decisions like DAO investments and new coins to mine. The future of the GGMC will be shaped by the community.
  • The GGMC will negotiate with other projects to give gopher holders special pricing and/or whitelisting. Particularly likely if the GGMC DAO takes a position in the project.
  • Exclusive online events to make us all better cryptocurrency professionals. Expect to learn a lot from high profile guests in the space.
  • Exclusive online events to make us all better versions of ourselves outside of crypto. Expect to hear from experts in fitness, personal finance, and mental health.
  • Online gaming and social events.Token gated discord channels so we can truly learn from each other and grow as a community.
  • Holder giveaways and airdrops.
  • Much more to come…

Gopher Rarity

The society score in your gopher’s metadata is a measure of rarity, based off its assets.
If your gopher is a profession with a rank, the rank is based off this society score.

Tools generally follow this hierarchy of rarity:

Wood

Steel

Gold

Emerald

Gopherite

Lore

To the untrained eye, our planet had been deserted. 

Within a barren wasteland, few species survived the destruction. Only sea creatures, burrowing mammals, insects, and plants were left. Millenniums passed. The waste and radiation were gradually absorbed by the Earth. Across the damaged landscape, wounds healed and scars faded. The natural world took over and the landscape was green once again.

On the surface, things seemed quiet. Life had been disrupted and food chains decimated. Those who had survived were cautious. The world was fragile. And yet, below the ground, the creatures were still strong.

Aldricus was the founder of the new world. He found the gemstone of sentience deep within the crust.

No one knows what lead Aldricus to dig so deep. Some say he looked into the Moon and knew what was to come. In his feral state, all he knew was he must dig. He burrowed down without rest or explanation, working on pure faith. Legend says the Moon chose him. Only he could begin the New World. 

Deep within the Earth’s crust, the chemicals of the old war had pooled together. Here, they reacted with the minerals and made the gemstone of sentience.

Aldricus burrowed down and found the gemstone. With just one touch, he knew what he was…a Goofy Gopher.

Aldricus named the stone Gopherite and brought it to the surface. When Spring came and breeding began, Aldricus littered the ground with Gopherite. This was the birth of Gopher society, and the world was at their burrowing claws.

Gopherite gave them a sense of identity. They gave each other names. Now they could make memories and form plans, process past and future. They had a language with which they could communicate. They could share great ideas, visions, and inventions. They were blessed with new emotions and passions.

Aldricus was declared King. Those of his blood were royals. Gophers believe the royals have a direct connection to the fate of their race. Just like Aldricus, royalty must know how to lead the Gophers out of the darkness.

Under the reign of Aldricus, the first mines were built. Using their natural skills and enlightened minds, the Gophers created history’s most effective mine systems. With the materials, they could create tools and objects, flexing their new powers of invention and imagination.

A strong fascination with Gopherite developed in all the Gopher people. They began to experiment with it, intent on unlocking its powers. When set alight, green flames erupted from it’s surface, burning bright and warm. Put in water the Gopherite turned into a restorative potion. Gophers added it to food, creating a new spice that increased the intensity of flavours. Not only that, it stopped food from going off. The more the Gophers learned, the more valuable Gopherite became.

Feral Gophers were drawn by the scent. Groups of missionaries were sent to convert the Gophers of the World. Their numbers grew. Not every Gopher reacted the same. Some saw the future clearer than the present, gifted with clairvoyance. Pups were born with Gopherite in their blood, some began to display strange abilities beyond scientific explanation.

Aldricus guarded Gopherite against other creatures. Gophers were to be the only animals to ascend into civilised society. He decreed that the Gopherite mining should be monitored, only what they needed right now should be brought to the surface. This became difficult as more Gophers became obsessed with gathering Gopherite.

Aldricus’s eldest son Juniper wanted more. The mining restrictions seemed pointless and strangled growth. He demanded an explanation but Aldricus told him to simply follow his orders. Juniper resented his father and felt he didn’t listen. Juniper began mining without supervision. He would bring the people more Gopherite.

Whilst he was mining alone, a support beam fell and crushed the young Gopher's arms. He couldn’t dig. No one knew he was there. When they found him, it was to late.

This was the first time Gophers had felt grief. Hurt ran thick and deep. For a Gopher to die in a mining accident…it was unthinkable. Some believed it was a sign from the fates. The King took it as his own failing. With his ultimate power, he had made the ultimate sacrifice.

A castle was built. Opposite the throne room was the ‘Juniper’ room. A council of state was formed. Parliament would meet in the ‘Juniper’ room. The King’s late son would serve as a reminder that the monarch should explain and listen. Gophers would be ruled in a just constitutional monarchy and could vote on issues that affected their community. Juniper had become a symbol of understanding, communication and transparency. A tragedy like this would never happen again. 

Theatres, towns, coliseums and great universities rose. Places to live, entertain and learn a trade or an academic discipline provided work and opportunities. Sport and sparring were devised for entertainment. Games to show off physical prowess became popular.

Tests were given to young pups to see if they possessed magical abilities. Orders were formed to teach young Wizards and advance Gopher society. Those interested in protecting, hunting, defending, and sparring became brave warriors. Those skilled in sales became merchants. Great traders facilitated the movement of goods all across the lands. Gophers were trained by the previous generation. Knowledge is passed on and shared. Some go against society and have become thieves, excited by the risk of being caught and the thrill of success.

However, most Gophers prefer to mine. They live and work underground. It is where they feel most at home. They go up to the surface for entertainment and food. 

Society flourishes. The Earth is blessed with a second chance.

FAQ

What coins will the GGMC mine?

We are the first mining club to mine multiple coins. We will mine Bitcoin, Kadena, Litecoin and Doge. Going forward we can add more coins to the roster based on community preference.

Which profession is the best?

There is no 'best' profession, they all have their own fun and unique perks!

How do I claim potential rewards?

Burrowing (staking) your gopher makes you eligible for any pay-outs.

What profession is my gopher?

The profession of your gopher depends on the type of assets it has. If it has weapons for example, it is likely a warrior. The profession is also denoted by the background colour and is in the metadata.

How does tool rarity work?

Tools generally follow this hierarchy of rarity: Gopherite > Emerald > Gold > Steel > Wood.

What is society score? 

Society score is a sum total of the rarity of the gophers’ assets. If your gopher is a: miner, warrior, or wizard; society score determines which rank the gopher is.

Is Mining Profitable?

The profitability of mining depends on four things: the cost of the machine, the price of the coin mined, the electric/hosting cost, and the difficulty.

We have significantly cheaper wholesale rates on the miners and have negotiated a cost structure for hosting unseen anywhere else. In bear markets the mining difficulty actually goes down due to less competition, allowing more of the coin to be mined.

Lastly, mining has never been unprofitable. We do not look at mining in fiat terms, we look at it in terms of the crypto mined, with the belief that in the future they will go up in value.

How are the founders rewarded?

The team will start getting compensated for the development of the project only after everything has been running smoothly for six months. All of the team have also chosen to mint in the public sale.

Is there a whitelist?

Yes, there is a whitelist for early minting access for our most active community members. See discord for details…

How will the GGMC be kept secure? 

All wallets will have multiple signature requirements, and hardware wallets will be used where possible.

For personal security, be very weary of scammers on discord.

We will NEVER DM you.

We will NEVER have stealth mints.

What coin will pay-outs be in?

ADA! When bridging comes out for the coins we mine, we will have a Juniper Room vote.

Will there be secondary market royalties?

There will be 10% secondary market royalties. Some of this will go to Merchant gophers, with the rest going to the GGMC DAO.

What is the Juniper Room?

Our DAO voting mechanism for holders.

Will we mine ergo?

This is something we will definitely look at in the future, we knew it would be popular in the Cardano community! At launch though the focus is on ASIC mining as it is much more efficient and reliable on this scale.
