An overview of Guzzler

Guzzler (GZLR) is a crypto game project for car racing enthusiasts and car designers. The game features customizable and usable cars, wheels, body kits, color mods, and performance parts to create as NFTs to travel through the game and beyond into the metaverse.

The GZLR community currently consists of 4,540 $GZLR holders and 18,623 members and is growing rapidly.

GZLR was launched on a decentralized crypto startup incubator, YashaDAO, which offers an investment ecosystem. The features of the launchpad itself are quite remarkable as they have extensive and rigorous project verification processes, such as recorded live video calls, 2FA with phone numbers, watchlist verifications and background checks, before registering on the platform, thus leaving only credible projects to be filtered through. The launch pad has also incubated innovative projects like Clifford Inu, Pochi Inu, Maneki-Neko, PlantDAO and World Peace Token.

GZLR is also KYC-certified by reputable crypto KYC firm, Assure, and appears to be going all the way to ensure its investors and community are safe and committed to the project.
