let's start then! okie Q1: Can you introduce yourself to our community?
Sure! Would be happy to 👋👋 Hello everyone - My name is John Wick and I have been a marketing professional for 3+ years. Before that I worked in the autonomous vehicle industry helping to build and deploy autonomous aerial vehicles as well as self piloting cars. Ended up transitioning to a career helping crypto projects gain exposure after investing and experimenting with crypto since about 2015-2016 and haven't looked back since! I am part of the marketing team here at Starchi and I’m super excited to be a part of this project and to have the opportunity to talk to you guys about everything that we are accomplishing right now!🚀🚀🚀 Done!

thanks! Q2: Can you introduce Starchi to us?
Of course! Let me give you a quick introduction to the @OfficialStarchi project 👌👌👌 Starchi is @StarterXyz ’s first play-to-earn blockchain game featuring nostalgic battle leagues that promote societal values inspired by the original Tamagotchi. The idea is that the players have the opportunity to obtain eggs, hatch them, and raise their Starchi from an infant to an adult in an effort to eventually allow them to compete inside of the battle arena and while earning $ELIXIR. Starchi is unique because it really creates an immersive experience for the player by allowing them to truly influence the happiness, health and skill set of their creatures. 👾😎🏆👾 I honestly think the gameplay dynamics are amazing as the actions of the collector directly influence how your Starchi grows and develops.

Great:) Q3: Let`s now talk about the milestones you have achieved so far and about your upcoming plans?
Sure - I think this would be a great time for me to highlight our roadmap so let me pull some links for you guys quickly to give a bit more context 😀 So the current roadmap for @OfficialStarchu can be found and reviewed here → https://starchi.gg/Story.pdf (Page 23) - the team has done an amazing job of laying out and meeting realistic and sustainable goals! There are 5 unique stages of our road map and I will outline those below 1. Breed 2. Hatch 3. Infant 4. Toddler And last but not least 5. Growth We are currently working through stage 3 where all of our seed/private/ sales have taken place along with our IDO (Today at 19:00 UTC on @StarterXyz) and the initial marketing push - So far a few notable achievements would be: 1. Recieved a developer grant from @PolygonOfficial in order to recieve their support while we developed the game 2. Hosted 30+ plus AMA’s in communities like here, play 2 earn daily and many more 3. Featured in major publications like Bezinga 4. Had our own episode on The Bad Crytpo Podcast 5. Nominated for 2 hackernoon noonie awards including game of the year! So we really have already accomplished a whole lot before we even had an IDO and there are a lot of amazing things on the horizon for us and our awesome community that you can visit here → @officialstarchi Done

You have a very important token offering on the IDO Public Sale, which will start in the next hour. So. What are the #starchi Team's Challenges and Preparations for this Big Event? Are you anticipating a sold-out success?
This is honestly a great question - so many projects put the time, effort and resources into their product only to be hampered at the finish line because they cant fill their IDO Public Sale, Alot of this is because they dont have the right team, parters or capital resources to allow their project to overcome these obstacles and operate longterm; however Id like to highlight some advantages that @OfficialStarchi has over the competition that will allow us to succeed where others are failing. 1st and foremost - @OfficialStarchi is incubated by the #1 launchpad in the Defi space, @StarterXyz - they have successfully raised over 30 million USD and launched 40+ projects so there is a lot of experience and expertise to guide us in the right direction and ensure that we have the resources we need to succeed. Second - Our private seed sale was oversubscribed by 5x+ meaning that we had to turn down a lot of investors who wanted to put resources behind @OfficialStarchi so we definitely have the capital that we need to operate for the long term - And third, we also have a network of over 20+ partners including @polygonOfficial quickswap, play to earn daily, polygon daily, and many many more that allow us to access audiences and investors from all over the world.

While I was going through the list of your partners, I saw that you've partnered with projects like CryptoDiffer, ZBS CAPITAL, STARTER capital and lots more. Is there a criteria you adopt when choosing these partners or how do you avoid a situation where by you partner with a project that won't contribute positively towards your growth and success?
Thanks for your question - I wanted to answer this because I feel like it will allow me to expand a bit on the information that I provided above - I previously stated that our investor seed sale was oversubscribed by 5x - we also are incubated by StarterXyz and Starter Capital as you stated which means that we really didnt need the resources to develop this game - both of these factors really gave us the ability to sit down and talk with each interested parter and understand exactly what they could bring to the table not just for launch - but for the long term as well.

The blockchain game space is definitely in its infancy, but there are many blockchain game projects to make it mass-adopted by traditional gamers such as CryptoKitties and Splinterlands. How are marketing, games and blockchain working differently?
Blockchains and the communitty surrounding them tend to be much more technical in nature - yeah there is a lot of hype but overall the crypto community seems to be more focused on features that create value while gaming is really all about the experience of the players - so the challenge lies in how to communicate that @OfficalStarchi is a vibrant peice of a self contained economic ecosystem that @StarterXyz has to offer while also providing a product that can truly be fun and addicitive to satisfy the epxectations that modern video game fans have come to expect out of their titles

1) I'm a bit confused about these two tokens. What's the differences in the usage of $START and $Elixir token? What advantages does it have over another for investors holding just one of them? 2) There are many token utilities that can make $Start to pump. However, it'd set a higher barrier to entry for your starterxyz IDO platform. Do you have plans to review the IDO tiers to accommodate new players? When is this game coming to android/iOS?
I love these questions and really wanted to give you guys a better idea of how the assets work - #1 Starchi is a dual token economy, to put it simply the game uses Starter’s $START token to access the game and buy Starchi as well as Starchi’s liquid luck token, $ELIXIR, our magical mix that makes the Collector wealthier for a period of time (while in possession of the elixir), for in-game rewards. Players will always end up holding both tokens because while you need $START to get started (no pun intended) you will be earning $ELIXIR tokens as you interact with the game. Some of the ways this could happen would be: 1. Earning START arena fees & ELIXIR by winning battles 2. Earning ELIXIR in future contests & tournaments 3. Earning START & ELIXIR with staking income 4. Earning ELIXIR by topping leaderboards, such as Most Active Collector, Longest Starchi holder, and more As far as the returns I dont want to speculate on what would be a better investment as both tokens have a lot of utility within the @StarterXyz ecosystem; however, elixir will be starting with a market cap just under 25k so im sure there will be some great gains to be had there! #2 So we understand that players really do want to play this game and that a high barrier of entry is going to discourage some who may not have the funds to meet the staking tier requirements. We are super committed to having the game be accessible to everyone everywhere so we have pallned a number of iniatives to help our audience obtain the $START tokens that they need to get started in the game. We recently concluded a competition with @coinmarketcap to distribute 50k worth of start tokens to over 1000 community members - each memeber recieved around 4.2 $START which should really assist them with getting access to the game at low or no price. We will continue to hold contests like this so be sure you stay tuned to our announcements channel to get the latest updates and get in early to the next one 💯💯💯 @StarchiAnnouncements I love these questions and really wanted to give you guys a better idea of how the assets work - #1 Starchi is a dual token economy, to put it simply the game uses Starter’s $START token to access the game and buy Starchi as well as Starchi’s liquid luck token, $ELIXIR, our magical mix that makes the Collector wealthier for a period of time (while in possession of the elixir), for in-game rewards.

🎴 Can we say Tamagochi played a huge part in the development of Starchi game? What features of Tamagochi game got you inspired to create this project? 🎴 I read that Starchi Staking Program will kick off today. Has the STaking details been released yet? Do you have any Staking tiers with benefits? @Thatsjohnwickscar
#1 Honestly I can say 100% that Tamagotchi was a huge inspiration for the vision that Chef and the rest of the team had for the @OfficialStarchi project. I think everyone on the team had some sort of meaningful experience with the game at some point in the past and so that really shaped the way we approached this title and the immersive experience it creates. I think it would be helpful to detail a few of the features that were inspired by the game below so you can get a better idea of how everything works. Starchi Collectors are responsible for acquiring and nurturing Starchis from infancy to adulthood. They are also responsible for preventing the extinction of Starchi-kind. Collectors earn wages via friendly battles to be amongst the top Collectors in their village. Starchi Collectors acquire Starchis by purchasing them in various stages from the local marketplace which I will list below: 1. Freshly-minted Starchi eggs 2. Toddler, teenager, and adult Starchis listed for sale by their collectors 3. Neglected Starchis (those not well taken care of) that are listed for adoption Starchi Collectors are also responsible for nurturing their Starchi, preventing them from extinction, and preparing them for battle. To prepare for battle, Collectors must do the following: 1. Wake Up 2. Eat 3. Play 4. Sleep So as you can see - the game really does a great job of showcasing the inspiration behind the project while creating something totally new and unique for the 21st century #2 Staking will be enabled from day one - this means that players can lock up their $ELIXIR tokens and begin earning passive income from them from the first day the enter the Starchi universe - this is also amazing because it will allow the player to also participate in all of the amazing and exclusive IDO’s that are hosted on the @Starterxyz Launchpad! As I said a bit ealier @starterxyz is the top Defi launchpad has helped over 40+ projects raise 30+ million dollars so that's an amazing opportunity to get in on some low cap gems Done
