AgeOfGods AMA SUMMARY
Could you please introduce a little bit about yourself and about the project? What exactly is #AgeOfGods ? What kind of experience do you want to offer with your game?
My name is Nick, my linkedin profile can be found here https://www.linkedin.com/in/nickvanderkolk/ I have a long history in Sales and have worked for years for KuCoin Exchange. AgeOfGods is a NFT Action Card Game, meaning the Gods in the game are alive real characters and they battle it out.
You worked for Kucoin, I understand you still have your contacts there? Nice to use such acquaintances in building and developing #AgeOfGods We all like Kucoin here!
hah, yes certainly have the contacts but I did retire like 2 years ago, so keep that in mind, when I was with KuCoin, we helped them grow from a basement, into a company with over 300+ employees.
Can you tell us more about the partnerships that support the project? You have a lot of backers, it’s interesting, how did you get them?
From my work at KuCoin, I knew our incubating VC (we worked in the same team). I’ve always wanted to make a game, so I really felt this was a huge chance to do that, but also create something where I can help people grow their passive income and wealth overall.
Crypto is a small world at the end of the day, so when news hit that we were going to do this, we were sold out in seconds.
We pretty much only exclusively work with community VC’s, so its not like there are some big whales in it, as money was not my issue, I wanted to have as many people join as humanly possible to have a big community, as thats everything in crypto!
It would be interesting to hear something about your marketing strategy, could you please tell us more about the vision of the project in the next few years?
So the marketing strategy is based on the same strategy we used at KuCoin, and its the same strategy as Binance still uses today. Which is that if I were to invite you into the game. I would get a % of each transaction you would do in the game, on the NFT marketplace etc. That way you can earn a passive income while not hurting the person you are inviting into the game. This is what exchanges do to grow, they give away a % from the transaction fee so we apply the same playbook for the game.
In terms of the vision, well the game is based on the fundamentals of AFKarena, which is a game with 6.6 million active players, we want to go into that direction and certainly beat the Crypto games out there.
Can you please tell us what the game will look like from a user perspective? Tell us something more about the game modes, and the competition between players.
So your cards, are alive, and in our case Gods. Game modes are PVE and PVP
In PVE you fight challenges and progress through levels facing bosses etc, in PVP you fight others in a ladder system, we will have bi-weekly tournaments for the top players, where everyone else can place bets and earn tokens.
I really like this, what specific platforms are you planning to release this game for?
HTML5, initially and then depending on the Google play store and Apple App store policies will have to see if we can have it there. as we need to be able to have ingame purchasing available with crypto I believe Google is okay’ish with it, but Apple is much more tricky anyway as HTML5 it will work on any browser anyway
Can you tell us about the earning opportunities for your users? Also, tell us about the usability of your token, how do you want to encourage people to own it long term?
We have 4 different revenue models and for each the person who refers someone can earn a cut / %
In game store
100% of the revenue further is used to buy and burn tokens
AOG token has a fixed supply of 270 million, no inflation, no transaction tax, people can Stake their tokens and earn passive income.
Can you say something more about the security of investing capital in your project? Does the project have any audits, and how do you plan to protect against potential risks in the future?
We have been Certik Audited, they are slow to put it online but am happy to share the report in the chat here if you want. We also have their Skynet product, which allows for Coinmarketcap & Coingecko integration and 24/7 monitoring service.
Hopefully, they will put it on the website online, as we are now “onboarding” but like I said, Certik is great, but not fast…
Why did you choose gaming and not another field? What do you want to say to our community to motivate them to invest?
Because I wanted to make a game since I was 16 years old, didn’t qualify for coding school. But now I have a game studio behind me that has made games for very big names like Disney and Amazon. Its a passion project for me
Why invest? Because fundamentals of the project are solid, team is very experienced, community is already huge, and lets be honest why would you want to play a game where your some weird Blub, Chicken or other weird looking character when you could be a God in AgeOfGods
1. Not Me
Do you need any license or permission legally to use the project? What kind of work have you done on legal regulations, do you have the necessary licenses and permits?
We do not need legal permission, BUT what is important is to have an legal opinion but a law firm in the right jurisdiction to be able to be considered for listing on large exchanges. We have that, in Singapore.
Why you choose Binance Smart chain? we see some chain pop up with good scalability too, then why you choose BSC?
Binance Smart Chain has the biggest amount of user base behind it at the moment, that is useable with low fees. Other chains have far smaller adoption and you can see that in the DEX volume. Pancakeswap is king. Other chains do not offer better functionality, nor do they give better adoption.
Does your project support staking program?if yes. how is your stake system work, what is the requirement for user if they want to stake in your platform?
Yes we will, its very simple. You connect your wallet to the staking page. you send the tokens you want to stake, you will get a high APY in return (more AOG tokens for staking AOG tokens). So there is no risk involved.
IF you decide to unstake fast, there will be a penalty fee % to be paid. After 90 days there is no more penalty.
