Mike Amaze: Hello Everyone! Good Morning/Afternoon/Evening to this amazing SYZYGY community. SYZYGY has brought for you guys another project with superb potential – Play IT Forward DAO.
We have with us today, Cholo Maputol, CEO and Co-founder at Play IT Forward DAO. Truly honored to have you here Cholo! Welcome to SYZYGY!
Cholo | PIF DAO: Thanks @CryptoAmaze - my pleasure to be here and excited to talk to the community today !
Mike Amaze: It keeps the whole SYZYGY community super pumped to meet fantastic projects here always and they are always eager to learn more about those via AMA! 😊
The community had been waiting for #PlayItForwardDAO! And finally, you are here:) We hope you enjoy the session today! Let's get started then! We have few questions from our end first, then we will move on to #Twitter picks and Community round.
So, to begin with Cholo, would really like to know more about you, your background, experience, and journey in Crypto space.
Cholo | PIF DAO: Sure thing - my background is in Traditional Finance, having spent many years in Investment Banking and capital markets across a number of banks with a focus on Southeast Asia and Singapore.
I started investing and dabbling in crypto in 2017 and went down the DeFi rabbithole in 2020 before coming across GameFi and Play-to-Earn in 2021.
My other co-founders and myself started out managing our own small guilds and decided to group up to more efficiently manage our guilds, growing quickly from 300 players in July to 3000+ today asn PIF DAO continues to become a big player in the space.
Mike Amaze: Wow! Off lately I have observed that mostly at the helm of high-potential crypto projects are folks of Finance wizard! That is truly amazing!
Me too being from Finance majors, I now have started to believe that I too might someday come at the helm of a good project! Lol! And - growing quickly from 300 players in July to 3000+ today - that is some outstanding growth you guys have shown!!
So my next question is -
Can you briefly describe # PlayItForwardDAO? What is it trying to do via Plug-and-play ecosystem development?
Cholo | PIF DAO: Play It Forward DAO is the unique combination of a guild management platform (P2E Board) and a large-scale guild of scholars numbering 3,000+ (PIF Guild).
We want to build a Plug-and-Play ecosystem by making the whole space more accessible - breaking down the barriers to entry for guild managers and players alike. So that in the future, any player or manager can get started in their play-to-earn seamlessly.
We do that via both our big guild that continues to grow our players and the platform we are building (P2E Board) where managers and players can manage their play-to-earn journey in one place. So everyone can focus on playing, having fun, and earning at the same time.
Mike Amaze: Amazing!! One of the key competitive advantage that I see with PIF is P2E Board - not many players have ventured into it, a simple yet amazing landscape to build the project into!!
And I totally understand the key factor behind project being such a great potential one, as you said Cholo - everyone can focus on playing, having fun, and earning at the same time. So essentially a win-win situation for everyone!
Great!! So here comes my next one -
Where is # PlayItForwardDAO headquartered? Do you have any office space or you majorly work from scattered locations? How big is your team size?
Cholo | PIF DAO: Great question - our DAO is registered in the BVI
But we actually have team members all over the world - the founders are located in Singapore, Philippines, Canada, and Hawaii !
We have embraced remote work fully and our team is pretty global as well - although most of our teammates are spread out across Asia, where all of our players are from too.
Right now, the team is ~25 pax but we are always open to welcoming talent. If you're keen to join, feel free to drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can have a chat.
Mike Amaze: Wow! Well for now everyone is almost remote working but having a spread out gives quite an edge with cultural mix and best of talent being worked out and involved from every corner of the world! And for you guys - it is from brilliant Singapore to Hawaii and Asian countries too!
@Community - There seems to be quite an opportunity for you guys here! Do drop in an email if you guys are interested! @hanzownage - I think the first email would soon be mine! 😃 😂
So moving on to my next one -
Could you briefly share the roadmap of #PlayItForwardDAO, the way ahead, any cool updates we should be looking for the project?
Cholo | PIF DAO: Sure thing, we're super pumped to share with the rest of you what we're building and how we want to keep pushing and growing the space as Play-to-Earn evolves from here.
First, we're planning on rolling out more games and bigger and badder scholarship programs for our players - we're running 4 games now (Axie Infinity, Pegaxy, Thetan Arena, Dragonary) and we want to really grow that number !
Second, we're putting the finishing touches on the P2E Board for its formal public launch which will allow guild managers and players all over the world to plug into our infrastructure and make their Play-to-Earn journey easier and more rewarding.
Lastly, our token launch auction starts in two days on 19 Jan, 1pm UTC and we are excited to welcome more members from our community into the DAO. We'll follow that up with some dope drops around NFTs and game assets - exclusive to our token holders and community of course
Mike Amaze: more games and bigger and badder scholarship programs for our players - this sounds mouth watering for gaming enthusiasts out there!!
And the token drop news surely looks super exciting too! I am sure community here is excited too to get a chance to go mainstream into DAO community!!
Awesome!! So one more from our Host round and then we move to #Twitter picks!
We would really like to know about any potential tie-ups/partnerships #PlayItForwardDAO could have in future? What are your listing plans and which exchanges are being targeted?
Cholo | PIF DAO: First up, for our scholars we are going to announce a whole host of games partners that we want to bring to you guys so you can have more games to play in your time with PIF Guild. Some names we've announced include Nitro Racing, Avarik Saga, Summoners Arena and many more!
For the community, we also plan to tie up with more service providers (exchanges, payment merchants, etc) to make your earning journey seamless - no more having to deal with wallets, you get paid direct in your home currency.
Post copperlaunch, we will list on Uniswap right away and plan to get on a handful of CEX listings quickly. As these get determined, we will let the community know for sure !
Mike Amaze: Those are some terrific plans you have got there Cholo!
No part of the gaming community is remaining untouched and esp the exchanges and payments merchants are also being thought about!
Love those listing plans too! 😃 So now is the time we move to Twitter Picks.
@Community - The best one shared with me by # PlayItForwardDAO. Here is the first lucky one-
Twitter Q & A Round
Q1: (@hazelwoodsuzyi) Security is a major concern when it comes to project sustainability. How can investors ensure that they are on the right track in the long run?
Cholo | PIF DAO:
Great question - PIF DAO is a community-first project and we want to ensure we don't cut any corners when it comes to security.
We are in the midst of auditing our staking contract before rolling it out to the public to ensure our community have nothing to worry about. We also maintain the treasury behind multi-sig gnosis safes - ensuring the utmost security for the DAO funds.
Mike Amaze: Well those aspects does give a high sense of security which is being taken care of very serious by PIF DAO team!
Moving on to the second question from Twitter
Q2: (@borz_yaroslava) What do you think about the boom of the NFT + DeFi association that is causing so much interest in the world? How does Your project take advantage of and exploit this reality.
Cholo | PIF DAO:
At PIF DAO, we believe that NFTs really unlock a number of use cases in the space that were not previously available - this is more so obvious in gaming more than anything. NFTs provide a way for all players to directly benefit from their playing time and the effort they put into building the community.
We intend to continue growing and investing our NFT asset base and deploying them to scholars that are able to attain a rewarding financial outcome from their gaming journey.
Mike Amaze: we believe that NFTs really unlock a number of use cases in the space that were not previously available - I totally agree on this! And esp the statement that it has more use cases in gaming world!
And you very well seem to be on track with this! Love to see aspirational projects coming up here and talking about them!
Alright, moving to the next one!
Q3. (@ehlers_magda) The overwhelming number of failed projects, or projects that are fraudulent, have several key characteristics: There is no active communication with the community and anonymous developers. Is your project able to overcome this?
Cholo | PIF DAO: First off, all our founding team are doxxed on our whitepaper (whitepaper.playitfwd.io) and we are proud to attach our name to this project and what we're building.
We also aim to actively engage and grow our community through various online and offline endeavors - including ongoing AMAs on our discord, events/airdrops on our socials.
We have also arranged IRL meetups for our scholars in large communities in the Philippines and this helps really scale our DAO and ensure everyone is looking out for each other.
Mike Amaze: @Community - We love it that you ask such intriguing questions from the project! A couple of more from #Twitterpicks and we shall open for you guys to ask here live!
The IRL idea seem to be superb!! I am sure all of these steps will keep the folks aware about the project and will keep them away from fraudulent activities!
So the next one -
Q4: (am@ammmm2506) Q.1-Increasing Token price 2- make Token Valuable 3-Building Community Trust From 3 aspects above,. I want to ask,. Which one the most important for you?? If all above are important for you,. Which one that Will you do first??
Cholo | PIF DAO:
#3 of course! As we are community-first and we prioritize that above all.
1 and 2 will become natural outcomes of focusing on community. We of course have a roadmap that's ambitious and that will excite all our community members.
We will also commit a certain % of our profits to buy back tokens in the open market - to support prices and continuously give back to our tokenholders.
Mike Amaze: Community First is the mantra of every project that definitely has astounding potential! And PIF DAO here too has prioritized it always!!
Glad to see that Cholo! 😊
Alright here comes the final lucky one from #Twitter picks- Which is the most sought after question too I am sure
Q5: (@fabricemel1) Which exchanges did you keen for $PIF listing ?
Cholo | PIF DAO:
Over time, we intend to get listed on a top tier exchange like a Binance, Coinbase, etc.
But in the meantime, as we work on that, we intend to get listed on other top exchanges to provide our community more opportunities to buy our token. We will share more details of these exchanges over time but you can count on us being listed on Uniswap the day after our token launch !
Mike Amaze: There it goes - Always love to see the names like Binance and Coinbase!!
Well, that was quite an intense Q&A.
Thank you Cholo for answering those #TwitterPicks. Now is the time we move to our most high-voltage round – Community Round!
