Okie, nice beginning let's continue and look closer at your project
Q2: Can you introduce Polkarare to us?

PramodPramod

PolkaRARE is a web3 economy that allows any user or a brand to create, trade, and discover NFTs. By leveraging NFT’s provable scarcity, transferability, and polkarare’s offerings, we aim to unlock the maximum potential of NFTs.
PolkaRare is powered by PolkaDot, Polygon, Ethereum, & Binance Smart Chain
Most NFT platforms are based on Ethereum. However, current Ethererum network congestion issues have become a bottleneck for NFT creation and trading.

Polkarare platform targets to be a multi-chain NFT platform, where creators and users can optimize the blockchains they want to use, and seamlessly transfer them across different networks.
The initial phase of the platform allows NFT creation on Ethereum and Polygon chains. In phase 2, we will add NFT creation on the BSC and gradually extend it to other blockchain networks
We plan to bring top artists from INDIA and pakistan as well as NFT auction of christies on our platform with help of our advisor Priyanka Gill who runs her own 100M USD company called MyGlamm which is backed by Amazon.

She is very well connected with top auction houses around the world as being as art collector herself.
Real world problems with NFT platforms is the ease of use and understanding, we are trying to simplify the use case for every user having no prior experience of blockchain.

1. I see that the initial phase of the platform will allow NFT creation on Ethereum and Polygon chains. But current Ethererum network congestion issues have become a bottleneck for NFT creation and trading. Can you explain if Polkarare will have another phase where NFT creation will be on any other blockchain apart from Ethereum?

2. For a project to survive long term, such project needs to have a revenue plan. Can you briefly share the revenue plan of Polkarare with us?

For Gasless txns, As we are using Matic chain for our V1 marketplace, the gas fees will be borne by the platform and the user doesn’t have to spend any gas himself.

For other chains, where Gas fees are high like Ethereum, gas fees charges for user will be discounted and will be dependent on the amount of $PRARE token held by the user.

What are the ways for your project to generate revenue in the long run? What is the progress of business development and what are some of your commercial partnerships?

PramodPramod

Yes we have a revenue plan and its important for a project to have a revenue plan to survive long term

Our revenue plan in brief :
1 : % of fees from NFT Trading
2 : Collections products — We launch exclusive NFTs for artists, sports celebrities and brands. We will charge % on sales
3: Loans products — we also charge a small fee here
% of profits will go to the dao treasury which will be controlled by token Holder’s.

Which country are you mainly in technical team? Does the country you are working in facilitate your development? And in the end I see whether the project develops or not thanks to good technology, are you confident with your team?

PramodPramod

My whole team is from India and we are currently working from our homes due to covid crisis in INDIA

Along with me, there are 2 full time software developers and 1 full time UI/UX developer & 1 person in business development for indian markets. We also have 2 graphics designers and 1 Angular developer on contract basis. We are currently in process to increase our team to have more backend developers for our development in other chains. We will be hiring at least 3–4 more developers by next 1–2 weeks

Can you briefly tell us about $PRARE token which is the platform’s utility and governance token? I understand that it will be distributed after your IDO, so on which chain will it operate at first?

PramodPramod

$PRARE token is the platform’s utility and governance token. It is the primary mode of exchange on the platform for NFT trading.

$PRARE holders have lot of benefits including

1) Governance — $PRARE token holders will be able to propose and vote on key proposals, a portion of platform transaction fees will be used for the governance rewards.
2) Staking Rewards — Stakers will be rewarded with platform fees. Stake $PRARE to earn $PRARE.
3) NFT Farming — Stake $PRARE to farm rare NFTs.
4) Exclusive NFT drops — $PRARE holders will get exclusive drops from the collectibles product.

Currently, the NFT Market is very competitive and a new NFT market emerges every day. Which features will PolkaRare use to surpass its competitors in this increasingly aggressive competitive environment? What might be your fascinating features that make you more innovative and unique than your competitors?

PramodPramod

Yes correct, Market is very competitive and there are lot of NFT marketplaces around but I bet you would never seen an easy to use platform like PolkaRare.

How do we stand out -

We are abstracting blockchain from our product by social logins, gasless transactions.

We are also trying to bring full potential to NFTs by introducing social, commerce and other unique features

We are also providing shopify like storefronts for creators, adding unlockable content to NFTs. eg: only NFT owner able to access hidden data in NFT metadata

We are also providing Social features, adding features like user profiles, following, likes, favorites, comments etc.,

We will go mainstream by collaborating with celebrities and do rare NFT drops, our advisor Priyanka Gill is helping us with onboarding mainstream artists and connecting with auction houses
I think i have answered the questions which cover all the topics
