MCDEX AMA Recap
Myko (CryptoDiffer)Hello everyone 😄
We are glad to meet here:
Martin Jerabek, CEO,
Martin Hromek, Co-founder, Dev lead
Martin HromekHi everyone!
Myko (CryptoDiffer)Welcome, Martin and Martin, thank you for your time!
Martin JerabekMe and Martin are ready, I'm sorry but Dusan (co-founder) can't join us here
Val and Lenny will be helping us - they are from our marketing team
We’ve prepared several questions to start with
can we start?
Martin Jerabekwe are ready
happy to answer all questions
Myko (CryptoDiffer)Q1: Can you introduce yourself to our community?
Martin JerabekMy name is Martin Jerabek. I’m CEO and the creator of core concepts of Cryptomeda. I have been in the crypto space since 2016. I was focused mainly on researching and of course investing. I was really amazed by blockchain technology, so I was trying to gain as much knowledge as possible. Last year I realized it would be amazing to start my own project so I contacted my two close friends about my core idea about defi, nfts, and everything what was going on in crypto. We were brainstorming together and we realized we have everything we need to build this project while both of them are one of the best in their industry. We always wanted to build our own company, so this was the perfect opportunity. Dusan Trizuliak is one of the best artists & designers around. He is very dedicated to this project, and he uses his talent and creativity to create something extraordinary.
Martin HromekI am software engineer with 10+ years of experinece, main technologies utilized java, unix, oracle ...
in crypto since 2017
by cryptomeda, responsible for covering/coordinating Tech-related tasks
let’s move to the next question
Q2: Could you describe the NFT concept of Cryptomeda collectibles?
Martin JerabekAll our NFT collectibles will have randomly generated attributes through Chainlink which allows us to create interesting concepts for use in the games and also motivates users for trading.
We have 3 types of Collectibles:
- collectible cards - additional rewards in the staking pools - 4 cards in each collection
- revolution cards - super rare card that can be created when the user collects the entire collection - gives airdrop based on its attribute “power” which is the sum of all attributes of collected cards. - the greater power the better airdrops the user will be receiving
Influencer cards - cards created for influencers and partners, can be bought through auctions on our marketplace. Can be used in the games as well and the character will have a part in our storyline...
We will have NFT items that will be usable in the games together with our NFT cards - weapons, armour. We are currently running a giveaway campaign where you might win one of 500 sword NFTs for free. We also giveaway 500,000 Tech tokens as additional bonus in this lottery. Feel free to join here:
Q3: What network and technology you are going to use?
Martin HromekWe are going to use the best technology possible to have fast and cheap transactions.
Scalability is necessary for gaining mass adoption. The polygon network is currently the best solution for scalability as well as for usability, in our opinion.
we will deploy the tech token on the ethereum mainnet, but all our services (staking, marketplace, games, NFTs) will be using the Polygon network...
We have partnered with the Darwinia network for cross -chain transactions. We will be able to use Polkadot, Kusama, Binance smart chain, Heco, and many more networks in the future, which opens gates to new possibilities we can do in the crypto-space.
Myko (CryptoDiffer)Okie, thanks for an answer
Q4: NFT gaming is very hyped lately. Could you share any information related to the gaming platform?
Martin Jerabekyes, sure
We have partnered with two gaming studios to work on two different technical design documents for our NFT mobile games. We aim to create an entertaining platform where users will be rewarded by playing our games. All NFTs will not be just items that the user will buy and use for a better gaming experience, but NFTs will also be an investment ...
All NFT items will be possible to level up and sell on the marketplace for a higher price. A ranking system for the best players will motivate users for competitiveness. Huge rewards are prepared for the best ones.
The games will be possible to play without NFTs so that everybody can play here, even non-crypto users. If the user is interested in our reward system, NFTs will be necessary to use. We will be educating the community about the usage of all parts of the platform.
All our NFT cards and NFT items will be usable inside the gaming platform. We are focused on creating a fantastic NFT concept that will bring the masses to the platform and entertain the users simultaneously.
Now we have one last question before transfering to community part
Q5: What is your future vision of the NFT sector in general?
Martin Jerabekstrongly believe that NFTs will be huge and its the future and that's why we started Cryptomeda, I think NFTs can change how we value different items. i believe NFTs will upgrade many sectors that still use traditional approaches, such as art, gaming, real estate, and collectibles... I believe we will be using NFTs for things we can’t even think of right now. It will have its own cycles and upgrades and will keep evolving.
Myko (CryptoDiffer)Hope it to be like that!
Martin Jerabekme too!
Myko (CryptoDiffer)thank you for nice and informative introductory part
now let’s see what community part will offer us
Martin Jerabekyou are welcome
Cryptodiffer Communityplease tell me contract adress, name, symbol and decimals
Martin Hromekcontract has not yet been deployed.
Cryptodiffer Community📍In the creation of Revolution Cards, will you burn cards in circulation to increase their value? How are the attributes of the Revolution card reflected in the experience rate?
📍Can Revolution card holders receive airdrops of regular TECH tokens every month? How does the height of experience affect the amount of airdrops to be received?
Martin Jerabekyes, all collected cards will be burned. It will also increase scarcity. Each card has an attribute experience which is used for levelling the Card or item. The attribute “power” is the sum of all attributes of collected cards. - the greater power the better airdrops the user will be receiving. Each unit of power gives to the user 300 Tech tokens with the linear vesting (1000 Tech daily). Power 1000+ gives 100% bonus (600tech/each unit of power) and 2000 tech vested daily
Cryptodiffer CommunityI saw that it's not a must for a user to hold NFT before they could play your game, but owing NFT gives users better chance of getting better rewards. This is awesome, how can this NFTs be acquired? Do we need to buy them from your marketplace or there are other ways we could earn them freely?
Martin Hromekthey can be earned in 2 other waysbesides buying them on Marketplace:
- by accomplishing so-called community quests
- by staking LP-tokens in our staking portal
Cryptodiffer CommunityQ1. Regarding Cryptomeda NFT Marketplace, could you tell us the mechanisms you've put in place to help prevent fakes/copies on it? Will you be allowing other cards get featured on it or only cards issued by cryptomeda will be seen on the marketplace?
Q2. Also, I heard that the Marketplace will also feature machine learning, can you tell us how this will work and is there a fix or schedule date for it implementation?
Martin Hromekq1: as for now, we plan to feature only cryptomeda cards in our Marketplace, we will simply verify, if contract address corresponds to ones related to our contracts.
q2: we were considering implementation of machine learning, but we have put it on-hold for now. so, no machine learning for the time being.
Cryptodiffer CommunityQ. What is Revolution card, how can we create it and what can it be used for on your platform?
Martin Jerabek20 pieces of the revolution card will be possible to create in each collection. It will have randomly generated attributes by chainlink in the range of 100-200. Collectible cards will have generated attributes in the range of 0-100. That means that the revolution card will be stronger than collectible cards and more possibilities in the games. Creation of the revolution card will be possible in our marketplace. The holder of the revolution card will be receiving airdrops in the form of Tech tokens
🔵 One of the biggest problems NFT marketplaces face is the large number of fake copies. How does your marketplace solve this problem so users don't fall for this scam?
🔵 For cards issued by Cryptomeda, do you guarantee that no duplicates will be shown in the market? What is your stance on security?
Martin Hromek- only NFTs related to our contracts' addresses will be allowed to be featured on Marketplace
- security is one of our main priorities, that's why it is included also in our NFT cards' attributes (security, annonymity, innovation)
Cryptodiffer CommunityWhat is your vision for Cryptomeda ? Is community factor a core issue in this project ?
Martin Hromekif community is happy, we are super happy, we will be always listening to the community and act accordingly! :)
Cryptodiffer CommunityI could see that in this quarter they will develop mobile games, but what theme will these games really have? Will they be the same characters on your cards? or will they innovate in any other game themes?
Martin Jerabekwe will start developing the first game in 4-6 weeks - when the design document is ready. It will be in the fantasy theme. We are already created a fantasy story. Q4 will be alpha version released and the full game will be released in Q1 2022.
it will be an action mobile game first, pvp game will be next. Each game will have different use of our characters but yes, those will be inside the game.
Cryptodiffer CommunityFrom my observation of NFT marketplaces, there is a high proliferation in the circulation rate of fake copies of NFTs all around. I suppose that the Cryptomeda team has looked into this and are already trying to curb this vice. In view of this, how will Cryptomeda address this issue of fake copies in NFT marketplaces?
Martin HromekOn our Marketplace, we will make sure, there are no fake copies, there are many ways, e.g. verify token's contract address (needs to match cryptomeda's one).
Regarding other marketplaces, we will make all steps possible to make it as difficult as possible to put fake copies, e.g. by using "Verify" feature at OpenSea...
Cryptodiffer Community📌One of the interesting Utility and usability of TECH Tokens in cryptomeda is the Cryptomeda NFT game.. So can you please explain what kind of game is the Cryptomeda NFT game, and what will NFT’s and TECH Tokens be used for in the Cryptomeda Game?
Thank You !
Martin JerabekMeda wars will be the first game. It will be an action mobile game where different gaming styles we put together. We are focused on Play & Earn concept, usage of NFTs, competitiveness of the users. Tech token will be in-game currency used for buying NFT items, repairing, upgrading - different concepts and usage on the table.
Cryptodiffer CommunityI understand that the only place where Cryptomeda's NFT cards can be exchanged is in its MarketPlace, but can NFTs from other platforms and games really be able to be found in that MarketPlace? or will they be totally independent?
Martin HromekActually it should be possible to exchange them also in other Marketplaces. But here we cannot ensure to the full extent, that there won't be fake copies.
On our Marketplace, no fake copies will be featured. Additionally there will be additional functionalities here, e.g. combination of 4 collectible card into revolution card.
Cryptodiffer CommunityNFTs are a rapidly growing sector with several applications such as in gaming, real estate, equities, loyalty points, and marketplaces emerging almost daily. The digital art and collectibles market has started to explode as NFTs provide creators and investors with the opportunity to protect from copyright and sell their creations. What new features will Cryptomeda bring into the digital art and collectibles market? And how are creators protected on the Cryptomeda platform?
Martin JerabekWe plan to implement different ideas possible in the NFT factor. For example, we will create a physical NFT book at the end of season - after 1 year. This book will have special bonuses only for the owner of the book. Another interesting app we are already working on which will be a special bonus for holders of collectible cards - can't say details at the moment but an app will be coming on october/november. We are also aiming to evolve the NFT sector by including influencers in the platform. We will create animated cards for them with the same logic as our collectible cards, so they can be part of the gaming platform as well as in our fantasy story. More interesting NFT possibilities will come with bridging to polkadot and kusama networks
Cryptodiffer Community💫💫 @MartinCryptomeda @Martomek
What type of investors are welcome to use your platform
Do you consider the short term, long-term investors and also those looking for immediate pop or immediate pop should look else where. ????
And how do you think you can bring awareness to those with little or no knowledge about crypto all around the globe. ???
Martin HromekAll types of investors are strongly welcome.
- traders can focus on trading our ERC20 token (DEX and most probably also CEX) and NFT token as well
- short term/long term investors can stake their ERC20 tokens in our staking portal and receive staking rewards (ERC20 token and ticket for NFT lottery)
We are trying to use all possible channels (websites/youtube/social media...) to spread as much awareness as possible 😊
Cryptodiffer CommunityWhat is you advantage over other projects? Is it from a security point of view or the technology you are using? Or are there other advantages? What makes you believe that your project is worth choosing?
Martin JerabekWe created our own staking smart contract which meets our requirements. We also have marketplace in our website which not projects do. Our NFTs are much more complex than most NFTs, with randomly generated attributes provided by chainlink. We have now many possibilities in the gaming platform. We included getting airdrops for collecting the entire collection or being rewarded with NFTs for completing community quests. Rarity and scarcity are one of the main aspects of our collectibles. Our design is also very unique, the idea that the user can own the character based on the real events from the crypto space that takes place in the fantasy story. And many many more
Cryptodiffer Community✅ Will each of the Card Packs have NFT from only one collection, or will it be totally random with cards from different collections?
✅ I read that once we collect all cards from a collection we can form or generate the "Revolution Card" Will this be an additional card they will give away? What things will we be able to do with it?
Martin HromekEach of the card packs will have NFT from only one collection 😊
revolution card will be additional card that will be "summoned" from 4 collectible cards (and these 4 tokens/cards will be burned afterwards).
It means, that for each collection, there will be created brand new revolution card.
Cryptodiffer CommunityIt caught my attention that you will develop "Youtube stories", but could you really tell us more about those stories? And also, do you only plan to share it on this social network? Or will they publish it in each of their communities?
Martin JerabekDon't worry, we will be sharing those youtube stories on social media - not just youtube. We are working on the storyline already and hiring graphic artists and designers for the amazing look of all videos. It will be an epic story, we are very excited about this
Cryptodiffer CommunityCan you give me the details about the Commander game. Is the game theme similar to captain America ? Can you describe the role of $ TECH in the commander game ? Can tech be used for purchase of weapons and upgrades in the Commander game
Martin JerabekThe game will be named "Meda Wars". It will be an action game in the style of Play & Earn. We will be rewarding users for playing the game. The best players will earn the best rewards. Yes, Tech tokens will be the only in-game currency. The marketplace will be also possible to use from the mobile game. You can play and trade from your phone.
Cryptodiffer CommunityRegarding the revolution card, You mentioned that the creator of that card will receive TECH tokens during the next 6 months, will it be 6 months after creating the NFT? or 6 months from now? They also said that the greater the NFT experience the more pitches you will receive, will there be a limit level? or will there be infinite levels?
Martin JerabekThis is the old information. The new information is in the newest version of the white paper. Experience is used for levelling the card/item and the attribute "power" is used for airdrops of the revolution card. max power is 1200. each unit of the power gives 300 tech tokens with a linear vesting (1000tech daily). power 1000-1200 gives 100% bonus the the rewards (600 tech/power)
Cryptodiffer Community-Can you tell us about the unique attributes of the 4 kinds of Card in Cryptomeda Ecosystem? How often can they be minted?
- Are there any reward programs in place to incentivise adoption? How will you attract digital artists and creators to your platform?
Martin Jerabek- each collectible card from the first collection consists of 60 pieces (240 together)
- each collectible card from the second collection consists of 80 pieces, +20 in the 3rd, etc.
- collectible cards generate 3 attributes (security, anonymity, innovation) in the range of 0-100 randomly
- we created quests for our community where members can share arts and the best ones will win collectible cards. Alpha version of quests are currently running, check our TG group or medium for more information. This version is done through google forms, we will have quests on our website after the launch. it will be in the form of instagram style
Cryptodiffer CommunityIs the Influencer card the same as the Cryptomeda Collectible Card ? Is the influencer card tradable and where can I buy these cards ?
Martin Hromekinfluencer cards will have same attributes (security, anonymity, innovation, experience) like collectible cards. it will be possible to trade them on our Marketplace (we will verify contract address to ban fake copies). On other marketplaces (like OpeanSea), we cannot make sure users are 100% protected.
The difference is that these cards
- are issues for Influencers (while collectible cards are issues in packs within collections)
- cannot be combined into revolution card
Martin Jerabekinfluencer cards have the same usability as collectible cards - randomly generated attributes in the range of 0-100 and usage in the games. They can't be merged into the Revolution card while they are not in the part of the Collection.
you can buy them only on our marketplace during the special event - mostly during the weekend. you will be able to buy influencer cards in the auction or just buy it for the fixed price if the influencer/partner decides to do it this way.
Cryptodiffer Communityfor me this is a general question, so what is the difference between round seed tokens, Private tokens and public tokens?
Martin Jerabekdifferent vesting option and price for the token
seed $0.008, 12 months vesting
private $0.014, 10% unlock after TGE and 7months vesting
public $0.016, no lock
Cryptodiffer Community- I really liked that you will be issuing new card collections every two months, I really loved it 😍 Who will propose the ideas for these collections, can anyone propose them? I would also like to know who will be the artists for these collections.
Martin Hromekif you are happy, we are super happy :)
actually first collection was created by our Design Lead & Guru (& CO-Founder) Dušan.
second collection is currently in nice progress.
for upcoming collections (and also influencer cards), we are looking forward to find talented artists and cooperators via various channels, e.g. our community quests 😊
Cryptodiffer Community❇️ I don't fully understand, Cryptomeda will be a platform only meant for investors and collectors, without taking artists into account? I ask this because you guys say you will only publish NFT designed by you on your marketplace. or will you take into account certain designs from the community for future collections?
Martin Jerabekyes, we created community quests for sharing their art and ideas. The community has the power to shape Cryptomeda itself. The core product is collectible cards based on the most remarkable events from the crypto space transformed into our fantasy story. Influencer cards are not in the core of the concept, it can help to bring more people to the platform.
Cryptodiffer CommunityHello @Martomek
What benefit does your partnership with Darwinia Network brings to your project and your users?
Is your game only for crypto users, can non crypto users also partake,
Martin Jerabekdarwinia gives us an option the create a bridge and thus connection to other networks.
