So, to begin with Matija and Noman, would really like to know more about you guys, your background, experience, and journey in Crypto space.
Mr. Matija: Sure, my name is Matija Rosovic and I am the CEO of Metarun previously GoFungibles. I have worked in the real commodity trading and financial world for the past 11 years. Graduated from law school, building my thesis on commercial law and finance instruments. Worked for the LME stock exchange and was an advisor for some of the top EU metals suppliers. I have been investing and trading in crypto since 2018 — a big fan of crypto, NFTs, and DeFi.
Mr. Noman: Hello everyone, I am Noman, Co-founder and COO @ METARUN (previously GoFungibles). Co-founder, advisor, and board member of multiple DeFi and GameFi projects. Gaming Enthusiast, passionate, and extremely curious about Blockchain and NFT technology. I have been an entrepreneur and cryptocurrency investor since 2013 and involved in crypto gaming, fintech, and DeFI space since 2017.
Mr. Mike: That is now indeed super amazing Matija! Having core trading and financial background, and engaged with LME, acting as advisor too, quite a varied experienced background you have!
And Noman, that is so outstanding that you are an early adopter with investing in crypto space since 2013, one of the very fews we ever get to meet!
Mr. Matija: Thanks I always wanted to push myself to be as inovative as possible
Mr. Mike: Indeed you have proved in various instances and scopes that you talked about! Always such an inspiration to meet folks like you!
Mr. Noman: Thank you and yes i got lucky with the introduction to the DeFi by close circle :)
Mr. Mike: Well that is some great circle you have got! I’d be really excited to be a prt of it too! 😄 So I’d move on to my next question too as we talk!
Can you briefly describe #Metarun? What is it trying to do in the P2E and P2W based blockchain universe?
Mr. Matija: Project METARUN (Previously Gofungibles) is building a sustainable multi-chain environment for gaming and non-gaming individuals to enjoy a part of the crypto ecosystem with NFT assets and its native ERC-20 token $GFTS. It has a simple recipe integrating a casual but addictive endless runner mobile game model with a play to earn mechanism.
We have thoroughly surveyed the current market landscape and existing (partial) competitors. METARUN was born out of a legitimate need for an actual playable mobile game with a play-to-earn mechanism and an existing gap within the NFT, P2E ecosystem. Unlike most of the current crypto games that are either auto-battlers or pc focused with high entry barriers, METARUN is poised to tap into mobile gaming with an innovative yet straightforward play-to-earn economy, addictive and competitive gameplay, high graphics, and guild systems.
Mr. Noman: Also to add to that, The platform features a gamer’s focused NFT marketplace and a play-to-earn multiplayer mobile game “METARUN” with a comprehensive and inclusive low entry barrier, upgradeable NFT assets, stunning visuals, conventional gameplay mechanism, and in-game rewards. It is built entirely by our proficient and talented in-house team. The game prototype will be available for Android after IDO as an APK file. However, it will also be launched on Google Play Store and Apple Store. The gameplay video can also be seen by clicking on this link:
This small gameplay video shows that we have already developed the multiplayer system aswell, which will be polished before the final game launch. Graphics and everything you see now will be improved :), Also one of the reasons we decided to go with the popular Endless runner Genre as i am a huge fan of endless runner games such as subway surfer, Temple run, Jumanji. :)
Mr. Mike: Isn’t it a true recipe of success guys — casual but addictive endless runner mobile game model with a play to earn mechanism — from my knowledge, there are very few in the market who have ventured into it!
And an NFT Marketplace being part of it, definitely this whole project is going to give a tough ride to its competitors in letting them stand out!
Mr. Matija: Thats true we wanted to provide a game that will envolve users to play for the basic reason we play games to enjoy and challenge us with other players. If you also give them a p2e economy its a win win situation for everyone.
Mr. Mike: subway surfer, Temple run, Jumanji — yes Indeed they were super duper hit and addictive, hence we at SYZYGY have no doubts now in terms of potential #Metarun is holding!
There! You just nailed it Matija! “win-win situation for everyone”! That’s why your competitors will be sweating most of the time!! We are so lucky to have you guys here!
Alright, we also move on to our next question —
Where is #Metarun headquartered? Do you have any office space or you majorly work from scattered locations? How big is your team size?

We have offices in Dubai, Belarus, and team members from Dubai, Croatia, the United Kingdom, Belarus. I would like to introduce some of our team members:

@Community — Look out for interesting updates from #Metarun! There is a lot more in the bag here! ☺️ So now is the time we move to Twitter Picks. @Community — The best one shared with me by #Metarun. Here is the first lucky one-
Twitter Q & A Round
Q1: (@move2kz) So how long you and your team to develop #MetarunGame?
Is there any problem when you and your team make this game?
Whats your biggest dream when you and your team develop #MetarunGame?
And also what the meaning of #MetarunGame for you sir?
Mr. Matija: We have been developing METARUN for over three months now. Our team consists of gamers so it was an amazing experience for us to work on a simple, casual but fun game. We want to target crypto and non crypto gamers and bring them onboard as part of METARUN ecosystem. For us METARUN is an actual playable game that would require skills and character abilities to maximize your earning power in P2E game modes. We plan to extend this ecosystem to create a Metaverse between mobile and PC gaming.
Mr. Mike: Superb! — a Metaverse between mobile and PC gaming, all from the community of Metarun would definitely be super excited for this! Cool, so our 2nd lucky one -
Q2. (@MdTanbi35716872) One of the limitations of some P2E games is that they require a high initial investment to start playing, many of which are very expensive. Can we start playing “Metarun” with a small investment? Will there be any discounts or benefits for early adopters?”
Mr. Matija: Sure our train of thoughts was to enable everyone to have a chance to try out our game and we are considering a low 5–10$ fee in order to buy the playable in game character. Once you start playing you will be able depending on your skill to upgrade the character by also increasing the base value of the character by a lot more than the initial investment. Surelly we will try to engage and reward our community as we bring different characters and upgrades to our games and will definetelly honor the most loyal user.
Mr. Mike: This surely tells Majita that you guys are thinking about the community alike! Thank you @Community for asking such great questions! Moving on to the next one!
Q3: (@chryptoto) Pump and dump schemes are becoming a major problem in the crypto space which needs solving, Investors’ hard earned money going down the drain. Could #MetarunGame please tell me how to prevent whales from manipulating the price & ensuring the price appreciate?
Mr. Matija: The pump and dump problem is a sistematic error of the blockchain community and everyone including the VCs are to aknowledge their responsability in it. The industry exponantial increase in projects has also made so that there are no quality control measures that we can apply to make the enviroment safer. The only way is to increase the standards of the projects and make a proper due diligence on the projects team members making it harder for the scamers and low quality projects to get to see the lighht of day.
Mr. Mike: The only way is to increase the standards of the projects and make a proper due diligence on the projects team members — — I couldn’t agree more! With the current scope of challenges you have listed out, I am sure this is the most apt why to keep it controlled! Alright, moving on to the next one -
Q4: (@IntidraK) Could you tell us right now where you are on your roadmap? What great things can we expect in the coming weeks or even the end of the year?
Although this is something which gets covered in a way you guys have shared roadmap, but any specific aspects too that you would like to highlight?
Mr. Matija: Yes we finished the fundraising last month our basic marketplace is ready and now we are polishing our alpha version of the game. Upon the launch we will give our community the ready marketplace and the apk file of the game will be downlodable from our website . The initial game will not have a p2e ecomony and multiplayer integrated because we will let the community feedback shape these features to be avaiable in the game which will be fully polished with all the features integrated by the begining of the Q2 of 2022.
Mr. Mike: Finished the fundraising last month our basic marketplace is ready — wow!! And that is why we love our community here!! Always such intriguing questions which pull out the best of the info about the projects! And here comes the final lucky one from #Twitter picks- Thank you Majita for answering all those in detail, here comes the final #Twitter one
Q5: (@muinlyreol) Do the token holders have the right to participate in the governance of the project? What kind of decisions can they vote on about the project?
Mr. Matija: the answer is YES. We will give our community especially token holders wide range of authority and responsability on how the project will be shaped and evolve to acomodate the logical and reasonable wishes from our end users . At the end it is them who will be using our products seemes only fair to make them shape it in way to keep to enjoy it all the way.
Mr. Mike: Isnt the project perfect in every sense!!
Mr. Matija: Nothing is perfect we just need to constantly improve😁
Mr. Mike: Well, quite an intense Q&A. Thank you Matija and Noman for answering those #TwitterPicks. Now is the time we move to our most high-voltage round — Community Round!

Q2. There are many projects these days that raise funds and then go to market without having a working product or a usecase. What distinguishes you?
Mr. Matija: We pitched our project to the VC and community 4 months ago but the idea and development has started much before that. We wanted to show a ready project not a idea on a whitepaper. We are so commited because we invested our own funds in getting the game and marketplace a reality. We own our game code we have a working game prototype we received a grant from polygon and are making sure that upon launch we provide activities for our users to engage in. Thats why we are unique and will be keeping the momentum going.
Q3.For a beginner and newbie in crypto and NFT , do you have any tutorial guide so that I can understand more about project?
Mr. Matija: Yes we will have tutorials chat rooms and forums on our platform.Our goal is to attract everyone that has interest in getting to know more about ourproject the blockchain and DEFI. Majority of non crypto users have a genuine curiosity about crypto but are reluctant to engage because of the complexity of the current enviroment. Our goal is through our projects and future expansions to make this bridge easier to cross and more enjoyable to use and engage in. Please just keep an eye on our announcements you will see we have great things in store for you guys.
