On January 25th 2021, 7PM GMT+7, Saro McKenna – co-founder of AlienWorlds join a live Ask Me Anything session in Forum Crypto Moonlight Indonesia.
HERE OUR RECAP :
Sarojini :Hey Muhammad – I’ve heard great things about the FCM community you’ve built here so it’s great to be here
Thanks for having Alien Worlds on
Muhammad Ryan : Hi everyone and welcome to the AMA on Forum Crypto Moonlight Official Group We’re honored to host an Ask-Me-Anything session with AlienWorlds
I will explain a little about the AMA segment this time,
- Segment 1: project introduction
- Segment 2: Question from Twitter
- Segment 3: Live Question
Before moving on to segment 1,
could you please tell us a little about your background
Sarojini : I am one of the 3 co-founders and I come from a corporate finance background before realising I wanted to be build decentralised systems that would empower more people. I handle strategy and finance within the project
Thanks – a little about the team as well
Previously we as a team did the 2018 viral eosDAC airdrop which is remains one of the world’s largest DAOs and is a block producer on multiple chains. We’re using much of what we learned in that project within Alien Worlds
and our senior developer, Michael, has have been involved in the blockchain space since 2017. First with ethereum and then later on the EOS blockchain where we built eosDAC after airdropping our token onto the Ethereum chain. He is very interested in decentralised governance and cross chain dapps
SESSION INTRODUCTION PROJECT
Muhammad Ryan : Q1, can you tell our community a little about AlienWorlds?
Sarojini : Alien Worlds is a defi DAO-based metaverse that uses NFTs as part of gameplay.
We have put 6 Planet DAOs into space, and they compete for control of Trilium, the ERC-20 fungible token of the metaverse.
Landowners try to make their land most attractive to miners who mine Trilium and NFTs. Gamers develop different mining and staking strategies depending on the NFTs they own and collect.
We’ve grown to be the 2nd biggest blockchain game https://dappradar.com/rankings/category/games in just a month (whilst still being in beta and barely publicising the game link itself) because we’ve thought about the game dynamics, incentives and depth of game play very carefully and designed a pretty compelling system. We’re also now the 7th biggest dapp across any chain and category https://dappradar.com/rankings
Muhammad Ryan :Q2, Can you share with us the mechanics of AlienWorlds?
Sarojini : So, you can go to play.alienworlds.io
You need a WAX account which you can get https://wallet.wax.io/. We give you everything you need to start playing like a basic avatar, and mining tools. You can mine on other peoples’ land – you will just forfeit some of the mining rewards as commission to the landowner.
Over time, as your Trilium position grows, you can stake to Planets and participate in governance and control over the Planet’s daily allocation of Trilium – but to start, just grab your basic free items and start mining TLM!
Muhammad Ryan : Q3, Crypto is a trend nowadays, many new users/investors, Are there any special tutorials/instructions for new users to understand accessing AlienWorlds?
Sarojini : the game interface is quite intuitive, additionally if you go to our TG channel https://t.me/AlienWorldsOffical or Discord https://discord.io/alienworlds many people will help and answer any questions.
We have an Indonesian language channel on our Discord
yes we are growing in Indonesian members all the time
Muhammad Ryan :Q4, AlienWorlds uses the WAX type blockchain, Please explain why you prefer WAX blockchain type over other blockchain types?
Sarojini : WAX has many benefits which allow us to technically build the game as well as onboard new users
onboarding new users has been very streamlined
– easy signup without buying any crypto, via WAX cloud wallet
– sophisticated smart contract language
– fast and feeless – FREE – transactions
– NFT attributes can be read and updated by a smart contract easily so that we can use them within the game. Our smart contracts also can issue new ones and detect when they are transferred or minted
Muhammad Ryan :Q5, recently NFT is trending among crypto, How is the AlienWorlds NFT different from other NFT platforms?
Sarojini : Our NFTs have game play characteristics built in to their attributes. So some land and tools (which are both NFTs) yields more Trilium when you mine it, some produces more NFTs, some can be mined more frequently.
In earlier generations of NFTs, they mainly had collectible value – think CryptoPunks which is really cool if are a collector – but now NFTs have attributes recognised by the gaming smart contracts
You can see our packs of NFTs here
And the cards themselves here – just an example
yes – thousands of users have started doing this just within the last month!
SESSION QUESTION FROM TWITTER
Muhammad Ryan :Q1, from @thuydiemnn
Security & User Interface are the Most Important Aspect that Users see on a platform. How has Your Project worked on this? Is Platform suitable for Newbies in the crypto world?
Sarojini : Yes, this is a very important area
We are working with one of the best minds in the blockchain space and our contracts are regularly checked by the veterans from this space as they are continuously contributing to our development. Additionally many of our core smart contracts are on a multisig meaning there is not a single point of failure. Our lead developer and cofounder, Michael, is extremely well known and well respected initially within Ethereum, then EOS and now WAX-Ethereum
Yes, we take security very seriously – this is blockchain after all. We are block producers on the chain that we run alien worlds on and have over 3 years of experience securing blockchains. We link up with the WAX cloud wallet managed system which is extremely robust. We also use the atomic asset
standard which handles millions of NFTs. The added level is that the TLM token is multichain so can be held in Ethereum or WAX
Additionally some of our core contracts are being externally audited
Muhammad Ryan : Q2, from @YenTatooLeYen
Many projects rug pulled and exit scam recently. Why should investors trust your project not to do the same?
Sarojini : so far we do not have investors actually, our users are earning TLM and NFTs and these are actively being earned by the community right now
Additionally, we have been well known in the space for years – since before the eosDAC airdrop fo 2018, and eosDAC is still one of the world’s biggest DAOs
So we have a great deal of credibility and reputation
Finally, our structure contains elements of decentralisation – in the 6 Planetary DAOs – so even if the core developers stopped working, the Planetary DAOs would still have TLM flowing to them everyday which would mean that much of the game dynamics could outlive us
We have a great deal about key man risk so many of our core contracts are on a multisig
Muhammad Ryan : Q3, from @KingRagNarking
NFT is considered the next trend of the crypto industry after DeFi. Could you share your opinion about NFT? Where do you see the future evolution of NFT features and capabilities in the next few years?
Sarojini :yes, absolutely
Most nfts are just images with a bit of metadata attached. But within Alien Worlds we read properties of individual NFTs inside the smart contracts and use then for various aspects of the gameplay (mining at the moment but others to come). we have even started modifying the NFT data in real time to show a history for how it has been used in gameplay. For example a weapon can show how many fights it has won or have it’s energy depleted and that will be recorded on the blockchain
NFTs are moving beyond being collectibles and towards having gameplay characteristics. There are also exciting developments around how NFTs can be traded as fungible tokens which will be a growing area
Muhammad Ryan : Q4, from @nguyenthuthuy90
What is Alien Worlds fairness and transparency? What technology of Alien Worlds helps ensure fairness and transparency for users?
Sarojini : our Tech Blueprint shows how the game is constructed, but this is just a starting point as the Planets and landowners also have a say
https://docs.google.com/document/d/1JiA97Y3JZMcC6HG2VPXEiZDd7UtA5yJSRUY2DQ5VSRI/edit# you can see that the mechanics have been very carefully thought through and designed and we believe they will prove to be compelling for the long term
All transactions are recorded on chain and you can participate in Planetary governance yourself by staking to a Planet
Muhammad Ryan : Q5, from @Capt__boieng
What is yourtarget market? Who are potential customers or clients that you are focusing on? What is your marketing strategy or plan to attract more users globally, especially in communities where English isn’t spoken?
Sarojini : We are growing very rapidly I believe because the actual game mechanics are very attractive to users
We have a Discord and Telegram community (Discord includes many language channels including Indonsian); WeChat and TG for Chinese; we have many users in India, Turkey etc. And we have an active community outreach strategy
SESSION FREE ASKING
Q1. Yebsin Yeska👮 “STAKING” is one of the STRATEGIES to ATTRACT USERS and ACHIEVE MASS ADOPTION
Does your GREAT PROJECT have plan about Staking?
Sarojini : Users stake to Planets to receive that Planet’s fungible token which is a voting token. There are already multiple distinct ‘factions’ forming – one called the Cabal and one called the NFT Army and they are coalescing around 2 different planets. Additinally a third planet is attracting smaller stakers and a fourth apparently is becoming a Russian hub
Q2. Marjiya : I have tried to find information about your team everywhere but couldn’t. Maybe I didn’t search properly? Please share with me information about the team. It is important to gain the trust.
Sarojini : the game founders are Dacoco.io, https://dacoco.io/
Q3. Shabbir Husain : How is Trillium different from NFTs? What do we farm in Alien Worlds to make more of?
Sarojini : Trilium is the fungible token of the metaverse, separately we have NFTs.
Q4. Jahan : Do the token holders have right to participate in the governance of the project? On what kind of decisions can they vote on about the project?
Sarojini : Sure – our roadmap is on the website Alienworlds.io under Star Route https://alienworlds.io/index#star-route and additionally we have a land roadmap https://alienworlds.medium.com/alien-worlds-land-roadmap-81ad6b9a13fa. Upcoming in short order is the introduction of shining, a mechanism whereby you can combine 4 NFTs along with TLM to ‘level up’ to create a new more powerful NFT. Additionally we have an NFT drop technology which Michael is innovating which allows landowners and Planets to drop NFTs which they create as extra incentives within the game https://alienworlds.medium.com/alien-worlds-land-roadmap-81ad6b9a13fa.
Q5. Jahan : What is your top 3 things for priorities in 2021? Also Can you expand our knowledge about Your Roadmap this year and the future and any Updates on your Research and development progress?
Sarojini : Yes, via the Planetary DAO structure, which you can read about in the Technical Blueprint and on our website – or chat to community members who can explain more
Muhammad Ryan : Before we close this event, do you have a closing statement to our community?
Sarojini : Yes – please join us at play.alienworlds.io to start playing and earning NFTs and Trilium! And join our Discord https://discord.io/alienworlds where we have an Indonesian language channel! 🙂
