I have started my career as a developer, became a project manager, then CTO. Then, I have founded 2 companies. One is a digital Marketing Agency, and the other is an IT Outsourcing Service Company, for which I have assigned CEO and teams since.

For the past 20 years, I have been mostly working as an Advisor and Service provider for my client to help them with 2 main aspects

👉 Handle the development of their product (software, Saas, WebApp, etc…)

👉 Handle their IT Growth Marketing Strategy to help them raise their product, attract customers, generate more sales and become a reference in their market

He has a Master's Degree in Design and Artistic Direction.

I live in Paris France.

About MetagamZ

Q — Ayeley from GAINS: What is the MetagamZ project about in a few simple sentences?

A — Jonathan from Metagamz: Our focus, is to create a 3D ecosystem dedicated to VR gaming where users will be able to use our tools to create THEIR OWN GAMES.

MetagamZ will be VR and non VR compliant and used on any kind of computer. Our Ecosystem and games will run on the main hardware of the industry (Oculus Quest, HTC vive, Microsoft VR, and others) and our team will focus on developing and enhancing the Software Development Kit that will be used by the community to develop their own VR ecosystem / Buildings and Games

Q — Twitter user Miracle Boy: Game development within your metaverse is one of the key factors for your success so how do you plan to attract independent developers or game companies to create and develop their games in MetagamZ? What plans do you have to increase the number of games in your ecosystem?

A — Jonathan from Metagamz: First part of the answer is given below with our roadmap Details that explain our plan for go-to-market

The second part of the answer is that MetagamZ is first and foremost committed to building a “game-changing” product, which is already underway.

Social media drive and marketing arrangements are beginning to be actioned but will be ramped up gradually over the course of the project, alongside project development and roll-out.

Next, we can expect to see more trailers and content to showcase the MetagamZ world incoming within the next few weeks, including video snapshots and VR tours.

All of this will be the best, most sustainable way to build the hype and awareness of this very special metaverse before the first playable aspects are released at end of Q1.

Q — Twitter user {Moon} 🌒🔥: Many of the existing games in today’s crypto space have high barriers to entry, high entry fees, the difficulty for many Crypto Users to access. My question is, in MetagamZ, is it also necessary to pay an entry fee to access the game? If so, how easy is it to access the game?

A — Jonathan from Metagamz: Metagamz Ecosystem AND games will be accessible totally free to ALL users. In order to play our own games, no fees will be required.

For GameEditors to create their own games, they will have to own land already, as any landowner can create its own building using our Kit and create its own games.

If game editors want to make their games accessible for a fee, they will be allowed to do so but, MetagamZ main ecosystem and main games owned by us will be accessible for free

Q — Telegram user Mr Rampal: In MetagamZ can we play only 3D games or we can also play old traditional games?

A — Jonathan from Metagamz: In MetagamZ people will be able to play 3D Games with Non-VR and VR hardware. As we work hard to create the next-gen technology for gaming, only next-gen games will be provided

Q — Telegram user Hồng Dương: I understand Game Publishers will be able to build their own VR World to attract visitors. But many Projects launch projects without inadequate help for marketing. Therefore, what are the benefits or advantages of the project to be published with MetaGamz?

A — Jonathan from Metagamz: Games published within MetagamZ will be promoted on our own incubator and to our partners in the gaming industry. In order to help game editors attract more users to their games, their games will be promoted on our portal and to ALL the users/gamers that are present inside the MetagamZ ecosystem

Token

Q — Ayeley from GAINS: What role does the token play in the MetagamZ ecosystem?

A — Jonathan from Metagamz: Concerning $METAG token utility, well it’s quite simple. ALL financial transactions and interactions happening within MetagamZ Ecosystem will be in $METAG ONLY.

$METAG will be the unique coin available for NFT Real-Estate, NFT

Assets, Features and Services (Competition, Paid Games, Play2Earn) and all services available inside the ecosystem.

We highly advise users to buy their $METAG as soon as possible as its value is going to drastically increase at the official launch, during NFT Real-Estate, and the more we will upgrade the ecosystem and increase the community

The token utility can be summarized as :

— Buy NFT Land
— Buy NFT Assets (Avatars, Weapons, Tools, Skins Textures)
— Buy any item from Metagamz and Games Editor’s NFT Shop (in Metagamz ecosystem)
— Features and services (Game Competitions, Paid Games, Play2Earn revenues)

Q — Telegram user Diran Abudu: I am interested to invest in your project. So what are the benefits for non-gamers like me? And why we should hold your token and not be in hurry to sell after lunch?

A — Jonathan from Metagamz: $METAG token being the only token available for ALL MetagamZ ecosystem, his price and value will highly increase over time.

Any people can buy $METAG token for the utility of it as per token utilities given or just to hold them as an investment

Funding

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

A — Jonathan from Metagamz: Yes, So far we have raised 4Millions USD during our various rounds in approx 3 months.

We are not going to make further raises in the future as funds raised are now used for Developing the Product and Handle Marketing to create a bigger community and attract users and gamers to our platform.

Competitive Advantage

Q — Ayeley from GAINS: There is a lot of focus on the metaverse and people in crypto may be getting tired of the metaverse. What are your plans to remain relevant in a space that is not as exciting as before, and what makes you special when compared to the projects already existing?

A — Jonathan from Metagamz: First, we are the only project in the industry to be a VR Aggregator

Second, we are the only project purely dedicated to VR Gaming based, and we are based on Unreal Engine 5 (for the competitors being in UE, they are still using the old version UE4+ which is really totally different in terms of graphic rendering)

Third, We will open our system to all game editors and won’t own the games. Our users will own their games and will be able to create them with our Software Development Kits — provided open source.

As of today, there are no real competitors in our niche. Most of them are 3D Games only, or Games Aggregators (non-VR) or VR Games (but unique game) and not editable by its users.

Nobody currently offers the users to build their own games, and last but not least, ANY kind of games.

As of now, we are the only one having this approach and ahead of competitors in terms of technology

Business Development

Q — Ayeley from GAINS: How far along are you with your roadmap and what should we expect in the next weeks and months?

A — Jonathan from Metagamz: Our roadmap is pretty precise and clear. Our strategy consists mainly in

👉 End of Q1 — MAJOR UPDATE — Official opening of MetagamZ — Opening of Real Estate + Release of V1 of our Software Development Kit N° 1

At that point — People will be able to buy land, select the 3D building they want, personalize and brand it and attract the community to their own environment

At this point — A team will be focused on enhancing this Software Development Kit N° 1 to promote new graphic assets but also new services and features for Land Owner (leasing, branding, advertisement, NFT shop, etc…)

👉 End of Q3 — MAJOR UPDATE — Official opening of the first Game. We will release our demo games starting this point in order to show which kind of games can be created on our platform.

At that point, we will release our Software Development Kit N°2 that will enable game editors to create their own games without having any Unreal Engine Blueprint or coding skill

At this point — A team will be focused on enhancing this Software Development Kit in order to create and provide new features and services for game editors to create more complex games along the way
