Questions about the project
Iris: What is StepHero? Can you share with us more in detail?
Lucifer: Basically, Step Hero is a comprehensive NFT ecosystem comprises
⚔️ Step Hero RPG Game — The lucrative NFT fantasy-themed RPG game on BSC and Polygon,
🏪 HERO NFT Marketplace — a cross-chain high liquidity NFT Marketplace
🎁 Step Hero Collectibles — artworks made with the most high quality graphic design
The ecosystem is built on Binance Smart Chain & bridged over Polygon.
Iris: What triggers you to launch StepHero? What are some of the real-world problems/ pain points that StepHero aims to solve?
Lucifer: Playing games has always been regarded as a pointless, time-consuming, and money-wasting pastime. Only a small percentage of all worldwide players, including professional gamers, streamers,…can monetize games and earn money from playing games.
The NFTs technology and P2E blockchain revolution have overturned that stereotype. Anyone can make money playing games now.
However, based on interviews with early adopters of this trend, we know that most blockchain games are boring with poor gameplay and visuals, even though there are a few true gems.
As a forerunner, we, a game studio with more than 15 years of experience in game building, will enter the blockchain game market to change this reality.
We know that this is merely the beginning, and the P2E blockchain game industry will truly take off when the traditional game market’s top players start producing their blockchain games. Being one of the first movers will increase our competitive advantages in the rising competitive game market.
So, what makes Step Hero RPG special?
Step Hero RPG’s USPs includes:
👉 Step Hero Collectibles: The collectibles are made with the most sophisticated graphic design by world-class game designers. You can easily integrate these items into artworks and other blockchain-related products.
👉 PvP Battles: Enjoy the game with friends all over the world, share the fun, earn money together
👉 Earn in many ways: Step Hero game players can generate revenue in a few ways: They can earn award prizes once they win in Player versus Player (PvP) battles. They can sell in-game items such as healing potions, power-impulse-potions, and self-crafted weapons on the marketplace for money. They can upgrade their characters and trade them later. The more unique and powerful their characters are, the more profit they earn.

Here is a sneak peak of our game
Iris: What are some of the challenges that StepHero currently faces? How do you aim to solve them?
Lucifer: Our biggest challenge is to enter and gain market share in a market that already has key players ahead of us.
It is quite challenging for a new ecosystem to compete for market share in a market that already has such big players.
However, keep in mind that NFTs are still a nascent field. And in the history of businesses, first-generation pioneers have never been as successful as the next generation. I.e: Google has outperformed Yahoo Search, Apple and Samsung have stolen Nokia’s thunder…
To unlock the market potential, we will take the following actions:
- Optimize our products and business operation based on the experience of previous NFTs;
- Prepare abundant financial resources, optimize resources to maintain operations against difficulties from the market and competitors;
- Cooperate with many partners in all fields, expand our NFT systems to many users;
- Promote brand recognition through community building, KOLs marketing
