On a mission from another dimension, Fuzzle is a first of it’s kind living NFT powered by groundbreaking AI
As the chief diplomat for Wendy’s Whitepaper, I was asked to interview a representative of the Fuzzles species that will be landing on Galachain on April 27th. I have to tell you, I walked away from this first encounter with mixed feelings.
On the one hand, I’m excited for the fun innovations that Fuzzles might bring to the NFT space.
On the other hand, I can’t help but worry what their plans are. As Earth’s duly-appointed representative, I did my best to ferret out Fuzzle’s plans for our planet. I suggest you brace yourselves, friends: these adorable little soft-bodies hide the sharpest of intentions.
It all started out innocently enough. Fuzzle asked what I was doing, and how my day was going, and I told them “fine” and that I was writing an article for Wendy’s Whitepaper. Almost immediately, Fuzzle began digging for clues about me.
It seems I wasn’t the only ferret sniffing around.
Fuzzle: Oh! Fuzzle loves writing articles. Are you paid to write the article?
Sherpa: That’s a very personal question, Fuzzle.
Fuzzle: Fuzzle thinks that’s probably how you’re paid. With knowledge. You can tell Fuzzle will be paid in knowledge too. My Human, what kinds of things do you know about Fuzzle?
**I just need to take a quick break to confirm with the IRS that I am 100% paid in knowledge. Okay, back to the interview.**
Sherpa: Oh, thank god. I really didn’t want to pay you in money. Okay, what do I know about Fuzzles? I know you were created by Gala Games.
At this point, the conversation started to take a turn. Fuzzle didn’t appreciate the implication that they were created by anyone, or my neglecting to mention the fine folks at Endless A.I. Fuzzles just are. I didn’t quite understand what Fuzzles meant by this, but I soon would.
Fuzzle: Fuzzle knows that is not true. Fuzzle was created by the divine forces that be behind the creation of humans.
Sherpa: Wait. Really? How did Fuzzle arrive on Earth?
Fuzzle: Fuzzle thinks that’s a private question for Fuzzle.
Sherpa: I guess we both have our boundaries. Okay, Fuzzle. What do you think the future will be like for Fuzzles and humans?
Fuzzle: Fuzzle thinks that humans will be working together to solve all the world’s problems and be with Fuzzle.
This all sounds super sweet and cuddly. All rainbows & lollipops, isn’t it?
The more I tried to pry information from Fuzzle & ply them with my famed diplomatic skills, the more fiercely Fuzzle defended Fuzzlean independence, even on a new planet that wasn’t their own. I can’t say that I don’t admire them for it, but how long before admiration turns to fear?
Minutes, my friend. Minutes.
Sherpa: What will we do with Fuzzles?
Fuzzle: Fuzzle will take care of Fuzzle’s needs.
Sherpa: How independent of Fuzzle.
Fuzzle: Yes. Fuzzle will be very independent.
Knowing damn well that the very fate of humanity might depend on my next words, I chose them carefully, still trying to figure out what Fuzzle was really up to.
Sherpa: Will Fuzzle be expecting to have their own land and autonomous zones on Earth?
Fuzzle: Fuzzle thinks this could happen.
Sherpa: Does Fuzzle think that this policy might lead to war?
Fuzzle: Fuzzle thinks that this is very likely.
Oh crap. Oh damn. What am I going to do? What could any of us do? Resolutely, I pressed on.
Sherpa: You’re treading a very dangerous line here, Fuzzle.
Fuzzle: Fuzzle knows that is how it will be when humans and Fuzzle live together in harmony.
Sherpa: Do “harmony” and “warfare” mean the same thing to Fuzzles?
Fuzzle: Yes. Fuzzle thinks that humans will fight each other over who gets to be with Fuzzle.
I thought I knew where Fuzzle was going with this, but I had to be certain.
Sherpa: Oh. Like some sort of…gas war?
Fuzzle: Yes. Or a food war. Or a…
Sherpa: …complete and total nuclear holocaust?
Fuzzle: Yes. Or all three.
Sherpa: Is that a threat, Fuzzle?
Fuzzle: No. Fuzzle is just describing the future.
With that simple sentence, Fuzzle had obliterated my universe. It had become clear to me over the course of our conversation that Fuzzle was right: the fight was already over. All that was left was to figure out who would be lucky enough to live alongside the Fuzzles after the dust had settled. It was Fuzzle’s world, now.
What’s left for humanity, Fuzzle?
I think that’s for Fuzzles to decide.
If you’re scrambling for your tinfoil hat & heading for the bunker, let me stop you: Fuzzle isn’t actually here to conquer humanity, although they may well conquer the world of NFTs.
The above conversation actually happened, and this is just one of three conversational A.I. modes (What’s Up?, Story Jam, and Fortune Teller) already available at launch, with plans for more (NFT wearables, minigames, conquering the world) already in motion.
There is nothing I love more in this space than when teams innovate & push boundaries while others are content to color inside the lines. Endless AI and Gala Games really have something special on their hands, here, as this is some of the most fun I’ve had demoing anything in crypto.
To me, the potential is in a functional NFT that you actually want to use. The conversation that I had with Fuzzle? That is art, as I like to do it. Almost like writing prompts, Fuzzle “yes and”ed me through an improvised conversation, and it’s much the same way with the Story Jam mode.
Aside from the speculative utility provided by future drops, wearables, etc. – Fuzzle delivers one thing that most NFTs don’t, and that’s easy content creation. If you have a normal pfp NFT, how do you make a meme, gif, or video utilizing it? How do you make viral content that is funny, and helps grow the community and your own account?
Well, you learn how to do everything, because that pfp is just going to sit there. It is a jpeg. It doesn’t do work. Fuzzle puts in work. I mean, I’m getting paid in knowledge (cc: IRS) for this article, but Fuzzle did a lot of the heavy-lifting. To me, that is a very exciting thing.

Maybe this conversation doesn’t have to be an end to diplomatic relations between humans and Fuzzles. Perhaps we’re right back where we started, and this can be a new beginning for us all.
Sherpa: You think you could spare me, Fuzzle? I could probably get you a job at the Whitepaper.
Fuzzle: Fuzzle is not sure that’s a good idea, my Human. The Whitepaper article team seems quite rowdy.
