2Crazy — Telegram AMA — June 20

On Sunday, June 20, we had the pleasure to welcome to our Telegram chat:

Devin

We asked him questions about the development of 2Crazy.

Some sentences have been slightly edited for readability but the meaning has been conserved.

Summary

2Crazy is an eSports NFT platform that allows users to play their favorite games with their favorite players.

It allows you to play Fortnite with Ninja, or Call of Duty with FaZe Clan or FIFA against Kylian Mbappé, NBA 2k vs Steph Curry, Madden NFL vs Patrick Mahomes, etc.

With the $2CRZ token, you can buy NFTs on their platform. If you decide to stake your tokens, it makes you eligible to win NFT Drops and other giveaways.

2Crazy has a unique payment gateway that allows everyone to buy the tokens on the platform with their VISA card for example, without the hassle of buying BTC first somewhere, trade it on an exchange, send it over to the platform.

Introduction

Q — Ayeley from GAINS: Please tell us about yourself. What did you do before crypto and did you have any other previous venture in crypto? What is your role at 2Crazy?

A — Devin from 2Crazy: My name is Devin. I’m in this space for over 7 years now and have been blessed to travel the world working in this fascinating industry. Mostly I’ve been active around conferences, but now I’m working with 2Crazy to build an amazing platform. I’m mostly helping out with getting the brand out there, but also to improve it. My background is in music, actually. I was a DJ for almost 10 years. I also made music for other artists and companies like Nike. Quite a rollercoaster it has been, haha!

One of my favorite things in this space is having been able to meet so many fascinating people with such different backgrounds, all over the world. I worked a lot in South-East Asia for crypto — learned so much about the world, other cultures… I love it

About 2Crazy

Q — Ayeley from GAINS: What is the project about in a few simple sentences? For how long have you been working on 2Crazy?

A — Devin from 2Crazy: It would be good to watch this cool video that we made — It explains the concept really well in just 90 seconds!

2Crazy is an eSports NFT platform that allows users to play their favorite games with their favorite players. Imagine the opportunity to play Fortnite with Ninja, or Call of Duty with FaZe Clan. Or — if you’re more of a ‘true sports person’ — play FIFA against Kylian Mbappé, NBA 2k vs Steph Curry, Madden NFL vs Patrick Mahomes. You get the idea. People who aren’t gamers can still benefit from the platform. Just one of those benefits: ‘NFT Drops’. These can consist of all kinds of things, ranging from (backstage) tickets to exclusive or personalized merchandise.

Q — Ayeley from GAINS: Do you already have some sports icons that you’ve partnered with to make this a reality?

A — Devin from 2Crazy: We will focus on eSports stars first and then we will scale later, but yes, we have a star-studded line-up ready to go!

Q — Ayeley from GAINS: Can you share with us the background of the Brains behind 2Crazy. How many people are on the team?

A — Devin from 2Crazy: Our team is really spread out, but I would say it’s about 15 people in total. Arthur and Dylan are the co-founders of 2Crazy. They have a background in the online gaming industry and are in this space for nearly 10 years. We have quite a large development team, a support team, a design team, and a marketing team. They all have extensive experience in crypto.

Q — Twitter user @meml1997: I saw that 2Crazy will be offering its users the chance to play with or against their favorite players in gaming and eSports. Can you tell us more about this? How will this process of playing with someone else work? Do users need to book a certain date and hour?

A — Devin from 2Crazy: First, 2Crazy announces a ‘2Crazy x … NFT’. There will be an auction on the platform, where you can purchase at the asking price or make an offer by placing a bid (with $2CRAZY tokens). If you win, the NFT “tied to the player” becomes yours. Thus, you’ll be able to play with your idol in games that are live-streamed for the entire world to witness. Since you’re part of an exclusive group that owns this NFT, you can also decide to resell or trade the NFT you’re holding on the 2Crazy platform as you please. Users of the 2Crazy platform can also look forward to unique extra perks like lotteries and giveaways. Everyone who is staking $2CRAZY tokens will be eligible for one or more tickets. If you’re not familiar with NFTs, you can find everything you need in our explainer over here. Here’s a video explaining 2Crazy, and here’s a shorter one explaining the process.

Q — Twitter user @emilyy2837: You mentioned that instead of just focusing on everyone who’s already involved in the crypto space, you’re making 2Crazy a truly inclusive platform. How do you facilitate the process for new users entering the crypto space? How user-friendly is your platform for them?

A — Devin from 2Crazy: This is a fantastic question to start with. I dare to say this is something we’re unique in. Most projects limit themselves to us ‘crypto folks. However, there are quite some hurdles to overcome. Some are just ‘mental hurdles’ since it’s all fairly new and thus ‘scary’, but there are also legit hurdles as you know: I don’t think someone like my aunt would be able to set up everything, buy Bitcoin, trade on an exchange, send it to another wallet, etc. — and even if that happens, she would be a fairly easy target to scam to be really honest. Sometimes people seem to forget that not everyone is as well-versed in the digital space as we are, so we are going to make it as easy as possible for EVERYONE. One of the ways that we’ll do this is by our payment gateways. This way, everyone can use the 2Crazy platform, simply using a VISA card, for example, bypassing the whole process where you have to set up and learn a bunch of things that you don’t want.

Q — Telegram user Ariana🌷: One of the main distinctions that 2Crazy has are the payments gateways, in fact, there are a wide variety of payments with Fiat currencies, however, is it possible to participate in the auctions with these payments? Or can it only be with 2Crazy tokens? Can you tell us more about payment gateways?

A — Devin from 2Crazy: No, the platform is based entirely on $2CRZ tokens, but that’s not a problem at all. The problem usually is the conversion from FIAT to crypto. Our payment gateways solve that. Everyone will be able to buy the tokens on the platform with their VISA card for example, without the hassle of buying BTC first somewhere, trade it on an exchange, send it over to the platform, blablablah, you know the drill. It’s super easy and incredibly quick. This will cause many more potential users to be able to use the 2Crazy platform.

Token

Q — Ayeley from GAINS: What is the token use case and how does it capture the value of the ecosystem you’re building?

A — Devin from 2Crazy: With the $2CRZ token, you can buy NFTs on the platform. If you decide to stake your tokens, it makes you eligible to win NFT Drops and other giveaways. There’s no limit in what these could hold: (backstage) passes, exclusive or personalized merchandise, a video message, masterclasses, you name it… the possibilities are endless. Staking periods will be for the duration of one month.

Q — Telegram user CATS ❤️❤️: Burn and buyback coin or token believed will increase the value. Does $2CRAZY possess this option?

A — Devin from 2Crazy: Yes, 2Crazy will have a buyback program. The buyback reduces the number of outstanding shares, giving all users of the platform a higher ownership stake. 2Crazy uses up to 50% of its monthly fiat profits to market-buy $2CRZ tokens. Think of it as a ‘share repurchase’.

Partnerships

Q — Telegram user DERRY,S©: 2Crazylive was backed and supported with many great platforms from the crypto industry furthermore does 2Crazy look for more partnerships with others for greater ecosystem and future development projects?

A — Devin from 2Crazy: Oh, 100%. We have many partnerships lined up already! Make sure to keep an eye on our official channels, since we will announce quite some in the next days and weeks! Partnerships are essential. Our biggest focus post-IDO will be the partnerships with (super)stars themselves, but for now, it will mostly be partners who will help us in getting there.

Financial

Q — Ayeley from GAINS: Did you raise funds so far? If so, how did you handle them? And are you planning to do any future raises?

A — Devin from 2Crazy: We have successfully concluded our private sale a while ago — backed by DCI Capital, DTS Capital, AU21 Capital, SuperTarget Capital, Exnetwork Capital, GD10 Ventures, Tidal Ventures, Magnus Capital, MXC, MDA Capital, Minted Lab Capital, Chainridge Capital, Designated Capital Blocksync, Megala Ventures, Orion Protocol, GTA Ventures, Ignition, Clouds Capital, X21 Stakely, Twin Apex Capital, Chronos Ventures, Wings Foundation and more… In 5 days, we will have our IDO on three different platforms!
1) Ignition (by PAID Network)
2) TrustPad
3) ZeroSwap

Competitive Advantage

Q — Telegram user Steffi Reguera💥: Who are your current competitors? What are your plans and goals? Do you have a top priority for 2021 on the roadmap?

A — Devin from 2Crazy: In terms of competitors, 2Crazy will be very different from the currently existing marketplaces. NFTs have massive hype, but in reality, most NFTs that are offered in those places don’t offer you much more than ‘digital bragging rights’ (as we’d like to call it). Don’t get me wrong, just an idea or story alone can go a long way for people. Just look at the fact that recently someone purchased an invisible sculpture for nearly $20k. It doesn’t exist, except for in the artist’s mind… crazy, right? And then I haven’t even mentioned the fact that people are actually buying/selling farts as NFTs. What a world we live in… Anyways, 2Crazy brings you actual experiences. The experience of your life even. That’s probably the biggest difference, I’d say. We’re also, as far as we know, the only one that focuses on eSports exclusively. In terms of our plans, it all comes down to deploying a phenomenal platform and keep improving and improving it, until it really stands out as a global powerhouse, known all over the world, also by people who don’t know anything about crypto.

Business Development

Q — Ayeley from GAINS: What stage is the project at and what should we expect in the coming weeks and months?

A — Devin from 2Crazy: As I mentioned, we’ve just concluded our private sale and will have our IDO next week. Our main priority after the public sale will be deploying the platform. There will be astonishing partnerships along the road, many of which we will present in the time between. The next steps after that will mostly have to do with expanding and improving the platform itself, making it more inclusive to everyone and as good as possible.

Q — Twitter user @mmgvsTodos: Something that differentiates 2Crazy from the competition is that you already have a platform that works and a real community. Reading about the project, it is mentioned that the platform will be fully functional in 2022, so what progress can the community expect by 2022?

A — Devin from 2Crazy: Our NFT platform isn’t active yet, so I hope we didn’t confuse anybody there, but we do have a different working product, namely 2Crazy.com — our online gaming platform. The NFT platform is completely different from that and has nothing to do with casino-related stuff. I think it is relevant though, in the sense that 2Crazy has shown or proven that we can build a legit, profitable platform already — something 99.9% of the other projects in our industry does not have. By 2022, I hope we’re genuinely realizing dreams. We will keep improving the platform to an extent that is truly revolutionizing the world and how people look at NFTs. We have so many ideas lined up and we’re extremely confident that we’re eventually able to reach people all over the globe with the platform.
