MEXC AMA with Paulo Caperig from SolChicks
Guest : Paulo Caperig, Content Lead at SolChicks
Iris: Today, we’re honored to have Paulo Caperig, Content Lead at SolChicks, here to give us a more intuitive introduction to their unique project.
Paulo, would you like to say hello and introduce yourself?
Paulo: My name is Paulo! Glad to be be here :) I have been with the team since the very beginning of the project and it has been a great experience.
I am currently overseeing marketing as well as partnerships with other guilds, companies and P2E games!
Questions about the project:
Iris: What is SolChicks? Can you share with us more in detail?
Paulo: SolChicks is one of the first NFT-powered play-to-earn fantasy games on Solana
(We’ve recently hit #1 in Solanart and other Solana Marketplaces!).
We’re also the most anticipated P2E game for 2022!
Our game combines features from all your favourite traditional games — including Diablo, League of Legends and Dota.
It’s really the first in the P2E space to be so immersive and engaging!
Iris: What triggers you to launch SolChicks? What are some of the real-world problems/ pain points that SolChicks aims to solve?
Paulo: We wanted to build a game that was actually fun; in contrast to what’s out there in the market.
Currently, the games that we have are turn-based games, or clicking games
We find that these aren’t as engaging nor appealing to the players who are more used to traditional games, like Dark Souls, Assassin’s Creed, Dota and more.
We believe that by building a PvP based, immersive gameplay with skill trees, quests, class changes and tournaments, we can bring people to playing P2E games not just because it’s earning money, but because it’s fun too!
We believe this pull for an entertaining P2E is an untapped potential in the current playerbase.
Iris: 👍cool! make sure to check out this Fun & Profitable game guys: https://www.solchicks.io/
Iris: What is the role of $CHICKS in SolChicks? Would you tell us more about its tokenomics?
Paulo: For sure!
The $CHICKS token is the main token of the game.
Which reminds me, here’s our trailer!
Anyway, the $CHICKS token will be the governance token, and will be a key currency for buying future SolChicks in the in-game marketplace.
It is also used to purchase other sub-currencies in the game! We have announced a few weeks back that we will also be introducing staking for the $CHICKs token. It’ll come hopefully within a month!!
Iris: Looking forward to CHICKS staking 🥳
Iris: Apart from the staking feature, are there any exciting news or updates with regards to SolChicks that you would like to share with the users?
As an update, in case everyone doesn’t know, our history is that we’re only 3 months old!
Despite this,our community has blown up to over 700k, with 70 staff across different countries as of today.
Even our demo is out now and that’s just with 1 month of development with the team we onboarded and we have a playable boss battle already!
We are on track to selling the rest of our 5000 solchicks next month, followed by the alpha in Q1 of 2022!
Iris: wow, that’s IMPRESSIVE 👀
Paulo: Thank you!
We will be launching the full game, including play-to-earn aspects by mid-late 2022.
Also, our demo is FREE and you can play it today!
Above is the link to play it. Try beating the boss in record time!
Iris: Awesome! can’t wait to see the full game 🔥🔥🔥
Iris: If you were to summarize your project in ONE word, what would it be? Why?
.In addition to our roadmap, we are revolutionizing the space in terms of a very robust roadmap, to start with.
We plan on acquiring several game studios, and from there build on pre-existing games to create the metaverse of SolChicks! Pretty exciting, really. Think of it as having interoperability as well — shared dungeons, marketplaces and etc down the line with other companies, P2E games, and other brands
Second, we really believe that we are transforming not only the crypto and play to earn space, but also bringing forward the evolution of the gaming industry into its new era. Gaming is massive globally, and we have already seen the industry shift from a pay to play model into a free to play model.
The logical next step is play to earn — and we really want to be at the forefront of this as the mainstream audience begins to take notice and adopt into the crypto forefront.
Iris: Great word 👍
Paulo: Have a peek at our revolutionary team as well!!
Q1. I want to support your project, Tell us more about the Ambassador Program and in what ways can we participate?
We are aggressively looking for Ambassadors and Hiring candidates right now! This is because we especially want to grow the game GLOBALLY, and having representatives, passionate ambassadors from various places in the world is a priority for our game to thrive. Please dm me or email me at email@example.com so we can arrange something!
Q2. Do you have any NFT plans and its integration ahead in the roadmap? Also do you have any passive income options and incentives reward for a long term hodler?
Definitely! For Token holders, I’ve mentioned the staking mechanism. As for NFT holders, our plan is to have an in-built “scholarship” or NFT-loaning system . Think of it like an NFT-bank! Owners can deposit their SolChicks into the marketplace, and would be scholars can “rent” the NFTs at a very affordable rate!
This system solves the trust-issue dilemma present in games like Axie, where the loaning system is done outside the game UI, which is prone to abuse and scams.
Q3. What is your strongest advantage that you think will make your team leading the market?
Paulo: We have the BEST team. The team driving SolChicks is truly global in nature! Our team of 70+ come from 19 different countries, and this lets us have staff oversee the community groups globally.
Our core team all come from a business background, and have learnt their trade in MBB consulting firms and bulge bracket investment banks. Our CEO, William studied at Wharton, and has worked at McKinsey & Company and Oaktree Capital. The other members of our core team have come from Bain Capital, JPMorgan Chase and other top tiers firms. We have combined this business acumen with a blue-chip game development team called 0xplay from Korea — they will be working for us full time and have decades of experience in companies like Nexon and Line, leading devs for MapleStory, PUBG, TERA, Dungeon Fighter, and Heroes of New Earth.
This is why we have been able to put together such a high quality demo in such a short space of time. Again the link to that is https://www.solchicks.io/game-access/
We believe that with the best team + the fastest moving quality project, we are sure to dominate the markets come 2022!
As a testament to how big the project is, we even broke solana network during TGE!
Q4. Can you share your social media links so we can keep ourselves updated?
For sure! Here’s our linktree for all our socials :)
