A quick update to share that TG remains actively working towards incorporating blockchain security into our Certificate issuance process - @admin staff and team are progressing on this front.

It's important to note that some of our aspirational goals are, in fact, ahead of what the current blockchain ecosystem landscape offers. Given this, we need to defer a few of these goals until the broader blockchain ecosystem evolves to support our vision.

So, as a consequence, our revised vision now only allows the record holder on TG to be eligible to purchase their specific TG Certificate. No one else. In other words, if you secure a record on TG, you'll be the sole individual authorized to buy that particular Certificate.

This Certificate, once available, will be minted on the blockchain, classifying it as a unique NFT. This means you'll have full autonomy over this digital asset, whether you decide to retain it, trade it, or even sell it.

While the TG Certificate will be digital by nature, it will come with a high-resolution file and possibly other supportive metadata. This will grant you the flexibility to print and showcase your certificate in a manner that aligns with your preferences, whether that's on your chosen quality of paper or even as a larger visual display—perhaps you may even decide to create a plate metal version!

It's crucial to understand that any tangible version you choose to create from this certificate only serves as a representation of the unique, secure digital asset you'll own on the blockchain. This ownership will give you exclusive rights to reproduce your certificate and empower you with the legal rights to ensure that no unauthorized reproductions can be made or sold.

We're optimistic about rolling out the TG Certificate system in the near future and promise to keep you informed as we move closer to this milestone.

Unique question regarding achievement certificates.


Suppose a player achieved a Twin Galaxies World Record 23 years ago and this same achievement was later used as the basis for a so-called "documentary" film without notifying or including the actual player involved with obtaining this achievement prior to filming?


Will a reissue certificate be made available to the real life achiever to which the so-called "documentary" is in reality based?


Will the achiever and disenfranchised player of stated documentary subject matter be entitled to reparation's from both past and future exploitation of his unjustly stolen documentary subject matter?


There were life rights contracts involved with the theft and unauthorized exploitation of this so-called "documentary" subject material.

Very dishonest business practice for OLD Twin Galaxies to negate and disenfranchise an established world record performance then unjustly award the same documentary credit to others when the subject became of marketable interest and value.

Perhaps Walter and Billy will have some answers to this at trial.

Tho it still makes me giggle a bit, there's nothing I can really pick apart there.

This is a unique but very valid question about the achievement awards.

Billy's lawsuit shake down scams wouldn't be occurring now if not for Billy abusing his authority at old Twin Galaxies to conspire with flim_flam film makers to create a fraudulent documentary to begin with.


The 1982 Billy DK score went from #2 back to #1 at the same time interest in the subject matter became profitable to himself. Why is that?


I'm glad these new achievement awards will have meaning and value.

I'm glad these new TG achievement awards will actually have the meaning and value they were deceptively advertised as having under OLD Twin Galaxies.

believe it or not i think i can actually turn tim's question into a closely related reasonable one.

his main goal is oh noes dont let anyone say steve weibe beat billy first since apparently its always billy billy billy with this guy all hail king billy beating his low scores is all that matters. well, the only way something at all relevant like this could ite in is if kok faked a certificate for steve to be the first to beat billy.

so to that end, while individual certificats have intellectual property over them, what about faking a random tg cert. For example, sure, lets go with the broken record, lets say kok didnt display ti'ms cert without his permission, but rather made a fake certificate with a fake tg stamp indicating steve got a first place dk score where he didnt. would tg step in and go after fraudulent displays of non existent tg certs? tim would have no claim over that since its not his cert, but the watering down of certs with fake certs of non existant records would be something i could see TG caring about and wanting to stop.

Can you elaborate on what part of the blockchain ecosystem is lacking in order to support me from buying a certificate of a former member that is fine with the sale, or they may have passed away? If I the blockchain supports me buying my own NFT, I fail to see how it would not supporting me buying some other NFT.

Good question. We all know the most valuable certs here will belong to theconsoleplayerofthecentury

I'm eagerly awaiting my certificate and a reboot of the KoK story line. Mr. Tashroudian can work for me if the long awaited sequel is made. Old Twin Galaxies and those bumbling film makers forgot to add the standard disclaimer found at the end of the "movie" (see pic)

The door will be wide open again if there's ever a reboot of KoK as the story is directly based on my achievement.

In a nutshell, our new policy doesn't prevent you from purchasing a certificate directly from another individual. However, TG won't sell you someone else's certificate (with some possible exceptions that remain currently undefined).

If TG were to sell you another person's certificate directly, in most cases it would be ethically right for the record achiever to benefit from the sale. Implementing this would require a multifaceted royalty system where blockchain and smart contracts would only form the foundation.

Though blockchain can facilitate basic royalty distribution via smart contracts, creating a full-fledged system to manage intricate royalty pathways is a significant endeavor and a business in its own right.

A complete clearinghouse system would be essential, as issuing a new smart contract for each individual NFT isn't viable. Moreover, major trading platforms would need to adopt this system universally, ensuring royalty distribution regardless of where transactions occur.

To sidestep these complexities, TG's approach is simpler: only the record holder can buy their own certificate. This way, they decide its fate post-purchase.


I hope that made sense.

For me, it would be "is the other member really fine with it".

Likely 99 times out of 100, yes, but...


Now-I DID untype my own thoughts about possibly direct Family members being able to purchase them, in the stead of deceased loved ones, I could certainly understand that!


I believe TG has been very sensitive to some members issues about this, tbh, and feel like this is a great compromise.

It's OK to find compromise.

Snowflake there's a matter of historic record the so-called "documentary" is based on that I most certainly do have a claim to , certificate or not, You should lean the difference between documentary film making and fictional story telling.

Walter DAZE and that scam Billy Mitchell both knew prior to filming that I beat Billy's 1982 DK world record in August of 2000 , yet there is a so-called "documentary" featuring this same topic matter with Steve Webie given the documented credit for the same?

Walter DAZE and that scam Billy Mitchell had a duty as custodians of such historical record keeping to inform the "documentary" film makers of my involvement in the subject matter. It was Walter and Billy's responsibility to tell the documentarians what to film not the other way around.

I really want to buy and horde certificates.

well thats what i get for trying to give you an area that can help. i do know the difference between doc and fiction by the way, its you who should learn reading comprehension. with that said, feel free to completlely fail to comprehend this and while insisting you did with your usual broken record that sadly, despite being your life obsession, isnt even fully accurate.

This is very interesting. I didnt really understand how you planned on incorporating the blockchain into TG but this is a pretty clever way of doing it if I'm understanding this right. It will provide an incentive to submit new WR's and draw more people to TG to submit who might not have otherwise, especially if these ended up being correlated to a particular monetary value. I would assume each game's NFT would have a unique value, as some games and performances are seen in a much higher esteem than others.

I do fear this could also encourage those members who like to pad their stats with tons of cheap maxout submissions, though I assume those kinds of NFT's will hold little value, if any. Even with the more prestigious submissions, who is going to want to pay for an NFT that someone else earned? I guess there might be business oppurtunites in them if a guy thought he could market and sell some of these the right way, but even in the best scenario I dont see more than a small handfull of games having profitable NFT's to anyone outside of the record holder.

Very excited and curious to see where this leads.

This is not how it can work. Tim would not get a cut of the sale price once he sold it to you. Tim would get the payment for the sale transaction from you to him, and it ends there - just like everything else you own and might decide to sell.

As explained previously, there is not enough available ecosystem infrastructure that can currently support the instantiated / dynamic allocation of royalty payments at the moment of a random NFT issuance.

The allure of a TG Certificate isn't primarily driven by the game; it's the player that brings its significance to life.

To illustrate, imagine if industry giants like Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg were to submit performances to TG, receive verification, and then purchase their corresponding TG Certificate NFTs. If these certificates were put up for bidding on a platform like Opensea.com, one could speculate that their value might surge well into six figures. This hypothetical value isn't based on the game, but rather the prominence and narrative attached to the certificate holders and their achievements.

Similarly, a record score like 1.3MM on DK could attract attention within certain collector circles, solely due to the accomplishment it represents.

Of course, this is all conjectural. The market might value them differently. Time will tell!
