Hello everyone welcome back again to AMA series FCM. Today we will have an AMA with ENZO – DUFLOT as CO- Founder of TOREKKO
Hello Mr. Enzo Duflot welcome to FCM 🥳🥳🥳. Happy yo see you here. Thank you for taking your time to be at FCM in the midst of your busy life. 🥳
E D : Hello everyone, thank you for welcoming me for this AMA 😁
I’ll explain a little bit about how the AMA will works today
There are 3 segment in this AMA
Segment 1: Project Introduction
Segment 2: Question from Twitter
Segment 3: Free Asking
Before we go to segment 1 Can you explain to us a little about your background before entering the cryptocurrency world and your journey untill join @torekko project?
E D : I am Enzo DUFLOT, CCO and Co-Founder of Torekko. My role is to manage the project, to establish the general strategy especially for the commercial and business part. My main goal is to develop with our team the blockchain and japanimation sector in the Torekko ecosystem
SESSION PROJECT INTRODUCTION
Q1. Torekko is an ambitious team that aims to bring out the first licensed NFT #anime. May I know what the name “TOREKKO” means? Also explain how you got this name?
E D : Torekko is the contraction of two words in Japanese “Torēdingu” “korekushon”, which means “Trading Collection” in English. We have therefore selected the “Torē” and the “ko”. To link the two, we added a “k”. The result is TOREKKO 😁
Q2. how about security and can you share with us a bit about the benefits you provide to the users who choose your Platform?
E D : For the security of our project, $TRK will be a BEP20 and ERC20 token. We benefit from both the security that BEP20 can provide and also from the security of the Ethereum network with its proven track record. To do this, we will make a bridge
And we are closely working with a well known Blockchain Audit company to get Certificates before Launch 🙂
Q3. Can you give a brief description of ‘Torekko’. What comes to your mind to create such a platform?
E D : TOREKKO is an ecosystem to decentralize the world of japanimation. We start with NFT collectibles related to jap- animation and manga.
Concretely, TOREKKO will propose to all to acquire collectibles on Japanese mangas and anime (with official licences).
We want to highlight the potential of NFTs, so it will be possible to do farming with our NFTs and especially we want to put in action our NFTs, it will also be possible to play the character in our game that are going to release in 2022.
Torekko have a token, $TRK. $TRK users can stake their tokens to receive interest in $TRK.
Q4. how long will it take to develop this project? What plans do you have for the future? And what can we expect from Torekko ? can you share the roadmap with us.
E D : Before answering, I would like to say that we’ve been working on the project since early 2021 to have a clear vision on the different stages of the project and especially to establish the different utilities that our project can bring.
After that we started to develop our website, our first NFTs, our ecosystem and our Smart Contracts
This November, we plan to release our $TRK Token, our first Collections of NFT Collectibles and Boosters as well as setting up Staking and Farming, from the start !
In 2022, we plan to Launch our Metaverse & Play to earn Game (Q1 2022). We also plan to develop an Animapp Defined as a streaming platform for anime and also our own scan platform (Q2-Q3 2022) 👀
🔥 If you want to know more, don’t hesitate to visit our website where our roadmap is displayed: https://torekko.com/
Q5. So torekko is the first NFT collection platform to focus entirely on Japanese animation. Can you explain why Torekko decided to focus on japanimation?
E D] : I would like to mention that we did not choose japanimation simply because we like this sector. Indeed, it goes much further than a simple passion.
The world of japanimation is already in a way decentralized, there are more than 10 000 mangaka and more than 500 anime studios in Japan alone.
It’s a world where instead of having big players there are many small players who participate in the development of the sector. So our goals are common: to bring more security in this sector, to eliminate the intermediaries and also to directly connect the creators with the investors, the community and the consumers.
Collectibles also occupy an important place in the japanimation market and we wish to modernize the collectibles with the NFT.
SESSION QUESTION FROM TWITTER
Q1.From : @KiyokoSumaru : Some in the crypto world believe that NFT will be the next big thing after Defi. So, how about you? What plans does “TOREKKO” have in terms of NFT? Do you have any plans for NFT in the future?
E D : Torekko has plans to develop very special NFTs in its ecosystem. They are so for 5 reasons:
First, NFTs will be semi-fungible tokens. The trend is to create unique NFTs and we want to differentiate ourselves from these projects to bring more liquidity to our NFTs.
Secondly, it will be possible to farm with our NFTs. The trend is also to create projects without a real utility and we want to give more value and credit to our NFTs. Staking and farming allows to obtain passive income and to give usefulness to our $TRK token and to our NFT
Thirdly, one of the most important points of differentiation of our project is the real licenses. Indeed, as previously mentioned, our goal is to give credit to our NFTs. So we will make NFTs in partnership with real anime licenses.
Fourth, most of the NFT projects do not have concrete applications. Torekko is willing to put its NFTs into action, so it will be possible with our metaverse that will be released in 2022 to play the characters/NFTs in the play to earn game.
Fifth, it will be possible to acquire boosters. Booster is another name used for collectible packs. The most interesting thing about our boosters is that the booster is an NFT on its own. This means that
you have the choice to open it or keep it closed. So there will be speculation not only on our NFT collectibles but also on our boosters. Then, Torekko boosters are NFTs that can be stored, exchanged and farmed without being opened.
Q2.From : @crypto_odeb :There are many platforms with the same idea as #Torekko. So, what great technologies and features will you offer the community that sets it apart from other platforms? What strategy did you use to make #Torekko worth in the market?
E D : Most NFTs that can be found on the market are unique. Therefore, even though there are tools available today to determine the rarity of an NFT, it is not liquid. Our NFTs will therefore be semi-fungible tokens, in other words NFTs with a limited quantity. We will therefore use 4 principles of rarity to make it easier to identify. There will be the common NFT named Ruby, the rare rarity named Gold, the very rare NFT, Moonstone and the non-booster NFT named Onyx.
There will be less types of NFT but thanks to this form of minimalism, it allows us to focus on providing the best quality NFT and especially that are not automatically generated by an algorithm like most NFT projects. Thanks to this, we stand out from the crowd. Moreover, each NFT has value since it will be possible to play them in our metaverse and also to earn interest in $TRK.
In addition to all this, what gives credit and value to our NFTs are the licenses. Torekko is in negotiation with multiple renowned licenses in the world of japanimation that will be unveiled soon.
Q3.From : @JohnSno55 : If a user wants to get involved in the @torekkocom
‘s market, how would they begin? Does @torekkocom offer a breakdown of the history of tokens, the reasoning behind them, and what makes Torekko so unique and special?
E D : Our platform aims to popularize blockchain as much as possible for users coming from the world of japanimation and who do not necessarily know blockchain very well.
Our service will also be dedicated to beginners and small funds in cryptocurrencies.
However we will also offer more advanced and technical features, especially in DeFI and in the metaverse to allow more experienced people to use our ecosystem to its fullest.
The fact that we are developing our token on the smart chain binance will also allow small investors to enter the ecosystem
So there will be beginners in cryptocurrency, more experienced people and professionals 🙂
Q4.From : @mohamedcry :How do you think with Asia market? Does your team have any plan approach ASEAN which the potential market in crypto, there have many great teams and investors want work and earn money from crypto?
E D : The Asian market is extremely interesting, especially for a project like Torekko which aims to develop blockchain and the world of japanimation. We are therefore convinced that this market will allow us to develop effectively in the future.
We are also going to develop our team in Japan in order to get as close as possible to our partners in the world of japanimation.
Q5.From : @ashamoni_N :Do you have Whitepaper if yes please share it with us and secondly do you have plans for pre-sale? Where can we join it?
E D : The torekko whitepaper is not publicity available at this time 🙂 It will be very soon (at the time of the launchpads in 10 days) 🔥
The token will be listed at the end of November and the first presale of NFT Torekko will be available at the beginning of December 😁
You can also try your luck on the launchpads for the token torekko between November 22 and 26
SESSION FREE ASKING
Q.1 Why did you choose BSC for your project? Is there any plan to add more blockchains in the future??
E D : We have chosen BSC because of the low costs and the great utility of the binance smart chain network. We think it is important to have low fees in order to attract as many users as possible from the world of japanimation who do not necessarily want to pay large fees for their crypto.
We are also going to develop a bridge with Ethereum in order to offer our token, our NFT and our metaverse on the Ethereum blockchain.
Later we will also develop bridges with other blockchains, we think in particular of Solana which could be very interesting 👀🔥
Q2. Can you List 1-3 Killer features of your PROJECT that makes it ahead of Competitors? What is the Competitive Advantanges your platform Has that you Feel most Confident about??
E D : There are 3 main features that make Torekko different from others and worth in the market:
– Semin fongible tokens : The goal is to address the lack of liquidity in the current NFT market with a limited supply on each NFT collectible and booster
– Real licenses : Real licenses bring credibility and value to our NFTs.
– Boosters : Torekko boosters are NFTs that can be stored, exchanged and farmed without being opened.
Q3. For non english speakers and south east asia market do you have any community who don’t understand English?
E D : We do not have a community that speaks languages other than English at this time 🙂 But we also plan to develop international communities with many languages (French, Spanish, Chinese, Japanese, Arabic, Indonesian, Russian, …) 🔥
Q4. Where are you tokens listed ? Have you completed listings in coingcko and cmc?
E D : Our token will be listed on the decentralized exchanges of the binance smart chain, and to start with on Pancakeswap. The listing will be done at the end of November.
Our token will then be listed on the decentralized exchanges of the Ethereum blockchain (thanks to the bridge we are developing). Then we will develop it on other blockchains like Solana, …
And our token will obviously be listed on coingecko and coinmarketcap as soon as it will be listed on Pancakeswap 😁
Q5. Do you have AUDIT certificates, or are you working to AUDIT your project, to make it more secure and reliable?
E D : Yes, we are in discussion with a very large blockchain auditor who will certify the security of all the smart contracts of torekko including the smart contracts concerning the token and our NFT
