ChainGuardians AMA Recap
Cryptodiffer TeamLets start
We are glad to meet here
Robbie Cochrane, Co-founder of ChainGuardians, (@Robbehc)
Emma Liu, Co-founder of ChainGuardians, (@EmmaCG)
Robbie CochraneThanks so much for having us - Emma is running around like a headless chicken with IDO stuff but she'll be here :)
Emma LiuHi excited to be here today!!!
Cryptodiffer TeamOur team has prepared 3 questions for you to start with!
Let's start with the introduction:
Q1: Can you introduce yourself to our community?
Robbie CochraneGreat to meet you CryptoDiffer community!
I'm Robbeh - Co-Founder and COO of ChainGuardians.
I've been in the crypto space since 2017. I've been working on building in Decentraland since 2018 as well as consultancy for a start-up focused on marketing/comms. Since late 2018 I began working on ChainGuardians with Emma and our third Co-Founder Idon after falling in love with NFTs and blockchain gaming. My previous life was working in communications and education :)
Emma LiuI am based in Canada with a management consultant background. I have managed multi-million-dollar projects for different industries.
I got into crypto early 2016, started with mining, and of course nft space in 2017. I like to buy things that retain and grow in value over time, and NFT definitely brings a lot of benefits to the collector like myself.
Cryptodiffer TeamThank you for the intro
Q2: Can you briefly tell us what is ChainGuardians in 3-5 sentences?
Emma LiuChainGuardians is a platform which combines traditional gaming concepts with blockchain technologies to enable player-driven economies.
Players can participate in our free-to-play NFT Mining Platform and Role-Playing Game; both of which allow players to earn income, turning your time and energy into tangible rewards.
Robbie CochraneWe like to think of ChainGuardians as the Marvel Avengers of blockchain. We have anime-inspired artwork representing superheroes of the major blockchain projects and chains. ChainGuardians is an ecosystem which combines traditional gaming concepts with blockchain technologies. It's both free2play and play2earn (or will be once fully rolled out) and our tokenomics structure enables for several Defi opportunities.
I think that's three sentences xD
Q3: Let`s now talk about the milestones you have achieved so far and about your upcoming plans
Robbie CochraneHigh-level I would say:
- Continued development of NFT Mining Platform
- Finish RPG game title and release PvP feature
- Commence development of 3D PvP game title
- Continued integration with blockchain and continuously driving improvement to UI/UX features
Cryptodiffer TeamThanks for your answer!
It is time to move to the community questions part.

Robbie CochraneThanks for your question.
We are in the process of developing new features for the NFT Mining Platform all the time and one such feature is the 'quest system'. Through use of this system, users will be incentivised to go and learn about partner NFT Games and in return, will get hash rate multipliers.
Cryptodiffer CommunityWhat are the features and functionality of NFT ChainGuadians? Will your assets be used in other blockchain games, virtual world Decentraland or metaverse like Sandbox?
Robbie CochraneThere are many plans in the pipeline to offer interoperability for our NFTs across different platforms. However for now their predominant use case is/are:
- NFT Mining Platform
- RPG (Beta)
- PvP (coming soon)
- 3D PvP game title
Cryptodiffer CommunityExplain your plans on global expansion,
Q1) is it only market you are focusing All the time?
Q2) Or you focus on building or developing and getting customers and users, or partnerships?
Emma LiuGaming is for everyone around the world. We have community groups in multiple langagues. One of our key goal is to promote blockchain adoption through Play2Earn & Free2Play gaming platform.
Cryptodiffer CommunityYou comment that your philosophy is underpinned by forming partnerships with other ambitious projects in order to work collaboratively. Does this involve making partnerships with centralized traditional game projects? If so how would you handle the issue of centralization? I think it's something super important.
Robbie CochraneThanks for this question :)
I think traditional games/game studios should very much be on our 'roadmap' to integrate their assets onto the mining platform and we believe this would act as a wonderful onboarding process for the communities' of traditional game studios.
I do not think it's a case of handling the issue of centralisation, but they understanding and adopting NFTs. Centralisation vs decentralisation is an entirely different topic. But if they can get onboard with their assets being representative of an NFT then we're all good :)
Cryptodiffer CommunityI have come to realize that DAO projects find it extremely difficult to to achieve complete decentralization. So is ChainGuardians fully decentralized? Or what can you say your platform is? Maybe an open sourced protocol where everybody can contribute?
Emma LiuYou are correct, to achieve complete decentralisation is extremely difficult. I like to think of us a company who embeds decentralised principals into our economy: some of our attempts here are to incorporate governance and to abide by them as far as possible. But it's clear that there are still a number of obstacles for DAOs in general. We do truly believe in achieving aspects of decentralisation in a logical and rational manner.
Cryptodiffer CommunityHow will the ChainGuadians ERC20 token correlate in price and usability? Will the ERC20 token be deemed unusable after the "fork
Robbie CochraneWe do not plan on any fork, so that's not relevant to us.
In terms of price, again we do not speculate. The purpose of our token is for use-case in our ecosystem.
We do however hope that the use-case for our token will across our ecosystem and the rewards for the community provide strong incentivisation.
Cryptodiffer CommunityDoes the #ChainGuardian project have an ambassador vacancy program for each country to represent the #ChainGuardian community and how can I register and what are the requirements?
Emma LiuWe truly value our community members, many of our members have been with us for over 2 years and with recent increase in our members, we think is about time to roll out an ambassador program and we have already started the planning with lots of exciting benefits and it will be announced, once it is ready. Meanwhile, do join our Telegram and Discord to get the latest updates.
Our lead artist Noi is a veteran artist with a portfolio that includes work for DC Comics, Nintendo and Disney, you can also check out his youtube channel : https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCVzLuZm_SnlPA4h4yHzmJCg
On average we spent about 1 month + with a project to develop their superheros, lots of exciting back and forth with the project before the final Guardian can be released.
Cryptodiffer CommunitySo your idea is to keep these games, and through them players can generate / earn tokens. As in every game there is a winner and a loser, in which case the losers will lose the invested tokens? in PVP games for other players and in PVE games for the platform? Another question, do you think in the future to organize championships of your games, to win some prizes in CGG?
Robbie CochraneAt present there is no way to lose our ERC20 tokens. Though, we have partnered with Exeed me who will perhaps look to provide a competitive overlay for our PvP game in the future. In this scenario they will be able to 'bet' on themselves and in this instance there may be risk at losing tokens. But that scenario has nothing to do with us and would need to be explored with Exeed me. Our RPG you can only 'lose' CGC and they are not ERC20 tokens, so in this case, there's no risk.
To answer your second question - absolutely we have plans to hold tournaments with prizes to be won :)
Cryptodiffer CommunityI see your project have some partners but who are the main partners of ChainGuardians ?What are the benefits of cooperation with the ChainGuardians ecosystem?
Emma Liuwe have two type of partners, one is more about the tech and business development side and anything under the cryptoverse alliance is on the NFT mining side. Users with our partner NFTs can use thier NFT and mine on our mining platform :)
we are also working with DuckDao to add an exciting DuckDao game world in our RPG :).
we are also about to releaes a PvP later this month :).
Cryptodiffer CommunityChainGuardians has a pretty cool lore! Is there some kind of a story behind or do you think over time to release stories and progress of the characters itself based on the interaction of the community? Can the community influence the development of the characters?
Robbie CochraneMainly the LORE is inspired by blockchain history and developments. The characters are all reflective of a major project or blockchain; so in itself the LORE is riddled with metaphor and allusion to blockchain throughout.
In terms of whether the community can get involved, we're currently running our first major community challenge to allow for storytellers, creators and artists alike to see what they can produce :)
Cryptodiffer CommunityQ. A lot of bright minds have been working in the blockchain sphere in recent years. Then why do you think that there is a room for ChainGuardians on the market? Does this mean that no one in the whole sector is moving in a similar direction as yours or what caused the current situation?
Robbie CochraneWe like to work collaboratively with projects as far as possible. However, we have been first to market with many ideas so we do like to think that we are somewhat trend-setters/industry leaders with this regards :)
Cryptodiffer CommunityHow does ChainGuardians plan to dominate the NFT market? How easy is it to use ChainGuardians ecosystem?
Robbie CochraneThanks for the question, I'll answer this in two parts :)
- Adequate balance between free2play and play2earn gaming structure
- Appropriate balance between on-chain and off-chain mechanics
- World class UI/UX for web and game
- Educational tools for traditional gamers who find blockchain gaming over the coming months/years
- Consistently driving improvements based on community feedback
- New game titles which are challenging AAA game studios (in-time =] )
- Users can start playing free, immediately, by simply signing up on our website and clicking 'play RPG' or 'Play NFT Mining'. Easy enough? 😆
Cryptodiffer CommunityHow do you plan to bind the physical items to the NFT What mechanism will work in ChainGuadians in this case?
Emma Liuinteresting you asked...back in 2019, we have released a NFT watch that is binded to our NFT 🙂 There is also a video you can check it out https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TfoklSYIQUM
