AMA Satoshi Club x Cryptia, September 27th

We were delighted to welcome our guest from Cryptia. The AMA took place on September 27th, 2021 and our guest was @long_nguyen_h.

The total reward pool was 500$ and was divided into three parts. In this AMA Recap we will try to summarize some of the most interesting points for you.

Part 1 — introduction and questions from the Telegram&Bitcointalk community

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club: Dear Satoshi Club! We are pleased to announce AMA with Cryptia.

Paul Mont | Satoshi Club: Our guest is @long_nguyen_h ! Welcome! It’s a great pleasure for us to have you here at Satoshi Club

Long Nguyen: Hi everyone, my pleasure to be here with you guys, and many thanks to your interest in our project. My name is Long, co-founder and CEO of Cryptia. I’m here to answer anything you’d like to know about our project. Hope we will have a nice conversation together.

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club: Hello and welcome to Satoshi Club @long_nguyen_h

Paul Mont | Satoshi Club: We’re truly fired up, excited to know more about Cryptia

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club Nice to e-meet you

Long Nguyen: Seems like we just had an AMAs right before, hope you guys are not tired yet

Long Nguyen: Nice to e-meet you @GoldRocket27

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club: We’re on fire!

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club: And we really love all our guests

Paul Mont | Satoshi Club: The netiquette of our AMA requires a brief introduction on your part

Please tell us more about yourself and your role in the Cryptia project @long_nguyen_h

Long Nguyen: Thank you for your question @claudia_paul . Again, I’m Long CEO of Cryptia Project, the one who will do everything in order for the project to be successful.

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club: Give us a brief introduction to the project. What is the essence of Cryptia?

Long Nguyen: About myself, I am a programmer and gamer. Computer is love back, and game is part of my life. I was lucky enough to have my undergrad in Keio Univ Japan and Grad in Univ of Pittsburgh USA. Love to be part of different cultures. Game and Technology are my favorite and that’s why I’m here with this project.

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club: Great background

Long Nguyen: Cryptia is a new NFT Game developed from Japanese Game Company. Super beautiful, complex and nice gameplay that gamers will enjoy a lot. Apart from play-to-earn mechanism game contents and active community will make big difference in our game.

We want to have a long-term entertaining game for gamers in NFT — blockchain technology. Of course AAA-rated games are great but the time for them to reach out to gamers in blockchain will be long, maybe 2–3 years. At this time, simpler games like ours with great gameplay will reach people both inside and outside blockchain world.

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club: you are one of those people who love progress

Long Nguyen: May I post some graphics for my game introduction, I think it will be better for our audience. I myself don’t like long type also haha

Paul Mont | Satoshi Club: Please do so

Long Nguyen:

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club: And this is already interesting

Long Nguyen: You are really nice Paul

Paul Mont | Satoshi Club: Love the art

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club: Is this a warrior girl?

Long Nguyen: Yes she is, and currently she has a mask so we don’t know her race and occupant, let’s wait little bit and in NFT sale she will show her face.

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club: I really like what your artist does

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club: Like a Mandalorian

Long Nguyen: Thank you @GoldRocket27 . And yes we focus a lot on art and design in our game. We believe it’s one of the core value to NFT.

Paul Mont | Satoshi Club: How many core members are working on Cryptia at the moment?

Paul Mont | Satoshi Club: And by the way, I saw you’re all public, great thing!

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club: Why, at a time when all games are striving for the blockchain, are you taking a step back?

Long Nguyen: In our website we showed only 3 people: Game director, Art director and CEO (it’s me). But we have huge number of people behind, only for the game team it’s 40–50 members already.

Long Nguyen: No no, we are doing game in blockchain.

Paul Mont | Satoshi Club: Wow

Long Nguyen: We have 3 teams running together: game development: GIANTY, Blockchain tech — Research team: RikkeiSoft, Marketing team: FomoCraft lead with other teams supporting. I can give one word for each of the team: GIANTY — Beautiful Art, RikkeiSoft — extremely careful, FomoCraft — Fomo.

Paul Mont | Satoshi Club: I have to admit, I’m pretty biased, I have a penchant for games — and even more for blockchain games, so really I can’t wait for Cryptia to finally come out and be playable

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club: What then does the phrase mean: At this time, simpler games like ours with great gameplay will reach people both inside and outside blockchain world.‌‌© I think I’m confused

Long Nguyen: Let’s play the game together, it will be available in this November.

Paul Mont | Satoshi Club: For sure, count me in!

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club: it will be a great gift for my birthday

Long Nguyen: This is one of our vision in developing this game. I myself believe in blockchain technology will be the future, and with it’s great benefit blockchain will change the world to be better. However number of real users in blockchain world is not much, people outside blockchain world usually have doubt with us. We want our game to be a great game, so not only gamers from blockchain world will play, but we can attract gamers from outside world, who never participated in blockchain world can join in, and know more about blockchain.

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club: How long does it take to develop a project? What plans do you have for the future? And what can we expect from Cryptia?

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club: Thanks a lot for the clarification

this is a real mass adoption

Long Nguyen: Total timeline is long, just we focused on 2 phase: first phase was back in 2017 for the gameplay — game concept, art and design. Second phase is in this year from July up to November and will continue to some years after

You can expect a game with beautiful art style and nice gameplay from Cryptia.

Paul Mont | Satoshi Club: Beautiful art, style and addictive mechanics — that’s what any gamer would want to hear

Paul Mont | Satoshi Club: Let’s get into the details now, shall we?

Paul Mont | Satoshi Club: We’ve prepared some questions from the community in order to get to know more about the project

Long Nguyen: If you don’t mind sharing your birthday with us, we can give you a present for sure haha.

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club: These are great ingredients for success.

Long Nguyen: Yes I’m ready for questions from community. Heard a lot from ppl your questions are usually very tough.

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club: I will be happy to be a part of such a grand project.

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club: Try this! You are well prepared too

Paul Mont | Satoshi Club: Let’s start then

Paul Mont | Satoshi Club: Here’s the first one

Q1 from Telegram user @Jmagsss

Upon reading Cryptia’s roadmap on its website, I saw that the inception of your project began in 2017 and then surprisingly, the next stage was continued during September of this year. May I know, what happened during the 3–4 year gap between Cryptia’s gameplay conceptualization in 2017 and its IDO and public sale release on this year? Do you think that the crypto bear market during 2018 was one of the factors that delayed your project release? Can you share with us some details about your project’s past and timeline?

Long Nguyen: It’s correct that the game was first developed since 2017. At that time, game concept — art and design was developed and cherished. During 4 years bear market the game went to dormant (Axie did better than us in this and look at them now). In July 2021 when the trend came again we continued this promising project. GamePlay redesigned to fit NFT, blockchain changes from Etherum to BSC, IDO, Gacha, etc… we think of more features to players so it fits “Earn and Play Concept” where community can play a huge part in the succeed of the game. For upcoming timeline and roadmap please let me share our graphics.

Paul Mont | Satoshi Club: Did I say that I love the graphics? Haha nice work

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club: Great ambitious plan

Long Nguyen: Thank you Paul, I’m also big fan of my own project artwork haha

Paul Mont | Satoshi Club: So IDO and NFT Sale events have already happened or are planned for the near future?

Long Nguyen: It’s planned for the near future, we just did not do the announcement yet. Our MKT lead always tell me: Long, stop spoiling all the announcement in the AMAs, but I cannot stop it.

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club: Thanks for your answers. Do you want to add something or we can proceed to the next question?

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club: Lol

Paul Mont | Satoshi Club: Hahaha

Long Nguyen: Yes we can proceed to next question

Paul Mont | Satoshi Club: We will proceed

Paul Mont | Satoshi Club: (but if you want to share with us some exclusive IDO date or preview, we won’t mind

)

Q2 from Telegram user @Cheriemike

Why going through your website,you indeed have a great project but I couldn’t find any detailed information about your project,When will your whitepaper be available?And to promote your project,you need to have some partnership with some Video Games Developers or NFT Game Projects,Are you in talks with anyone yet as regards to that?

Long Nguyen: Early October (we changed it because of bear market this week)

Paul Mont | Satoshi Club: Wonderful, we gotta stay tuned then!

Long Nguyen: This is a nice question, must say that I love it, because it show his/her interest and research on our project.

Long Nguyen: I wish I can answer this question by tomorrow as we will have our whitepaper on web in next 12 hours. Btw when whitepaper is not ready, we still have the pitch deck there with all the needed information / tokenomics for investors.

Paul Mont | Satoshi Club: You can share the link to the pitch deck here with our Satoshi Clubbers if you wish

Long Nguyen: We do have connections, not only with other NFT Game Projects but also Lending Project, Game guilds and traditional Game Company as well. Multiple Partnership will be announced within this week and before the IDO (to make the hype as MKT leader said(, and especially after NFT sale which is around middle October, where NFT exchange can shine.

I believed we have announced 2–3 partnerships within this week already, one of them are with Redkite, our close close friend.

Long Nguyen: Wait I think Redkite partnership is not announced yet

Long Nguyen: I spoil again.

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club: this is very exciting

Paul Mont | Satoshi Club: Hahaha, but we love that @long_nguyen_h

Long Nguyen: I sent my apologize to MKT team already. Please continue

Paul Mont | Satoshi Club: These are wonderful news, we’ll looking forward the announcements regarding the mechanics of the upcoming IDO and NFT Sale

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club: Your secret will remain between us with 91k + participants

Paul Mont | Satoshi Club: Thank you very much @long for your clear answer! Next question incoming

Long Nguyen: I love your gif Paul, will borrow it and use in the future

Paul Mont | Satoshi Club: Hahaha it’s very cool I agree

Paul Mont | Satoshi Club: Next question is about the Alliance War event!

Q3 from Telegram User @ysasoma

October brings for the players Stage 2 PvP, where they will launch the Alliance War, the stage where we all want to participate, so, tell us a little about the dynamics, tell us also about the investment and the requirements to be met by a user, the rules to follow and above all the opportunities offered by the Alliance War?

Long Nguyen: Sadly I think it’s question to other game, not my game haha.

Long Nguyen: We don’t have Alliance War and don’t have PvP on October. But time will come when I can share our PvP gameplay (just not now).

Paul Mont | Satoshi Club: That is very unfortunate, apparently this is a completely wrong question

Paul Mont | Satoshi Club: Let me correct it witht the right one

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club: Oops! then tell us a little about what you consider important at the moment for the project

Q4 from Telegram User @DK177

According to your website, there are three sponsors to your project, RED KITE, a launchpad and Defi platform, ICETEA LABS, supporters for decentralization technologies, and GIANTY, a blockchain tech. Why didn’t you get any sponsorship from a project related to gaming? You have not allocated tokens from the total supply for these sponsors. Do they get their rewards from the portion of 15% allocated for the team? In addition to these sponsorships, do you have some collaborations with some renowned gaming platforms?

Long Nguyen: Deadline is what hanging on our mind everyday haha

Long Nguyen: For all team members, to be dedicated with the project and focus 200% power is what important. We are happy to have Japanese Company to develop the game as we all know how hard working they are

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club: Absolutely right!

Long Nguyen: We really wish we can answer this question after 1–2 days from now. Yes in the website we announced 3 sponsors who participated in our seed round. However sponsors in our Private now is not yet announced and will be displayed on our website very very soon. I can share some of the name: Altonomy, HyperChain, FomoCraft, ArkStream.

For gaming platforms we have very close relationship with GameFi. Also connecting to YGG — GGG which is famous game guild who can give us many added values.

Long Nguyen: Do we have #done rules here? I don’t see you Paul and Gold Rocket

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club These are famous and popular names in the crypto space.

Paul Mont | Satoshi Club: What about audits? Are they planned for the upcoming future?

Long Nguyen: Some bigger names are coming in also, yet we do not finalize with them yet though.

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club: You can introduce this rule as our beloved guest

Long Nguyen: We are working on the audits with Certrix, whenever results are out we will public it. However Audits are not 100% bullet proof, we all know that. We also have a blockchain research team looking for what’s wrong with other projects and try to no step the same step as they did.

Paul Mont | Satoshi Club: Thanks for taking care of this. Great answers!

Paul Mont | Satoshi Club: Ready for the next question?

Long Nguyen: Yes I’m ready

Q5 from Telegram User @Pavel_Jarosh

Dear Cryptia team! As your project is based on NFT heroes creation and the following upgrade, I think some players aim to resale once the heroes are good enough. Please provide more details regarding initial skill level provided to each hero? Are they all set for the same strengh/power? Can some of them be more talented to grow faster? Thank you!

Long Nguyen: This game is developed by Japanese Company and if you are familiar with Japanese game, they are really complex. Lots of attributes, some include hidden stats and some will combine together to create crazy things.

Long Nguyen: First time I read the character stats I was like: how can some1 design stuff like this? How can they balance the game with all these information, and the game director just winked: believe me. Then I believe him.

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club: Sounds great

Paul Mont | Satoshi Club: Love the idea of hidden stats, that’s a new one for me

Long Nguyen: For the specific question from Pavel, I will answer as follow: heroes will be balanced to get upgrade for multiple years. No they will not have same basic status from beginning, that’s why we have gacha (random mechanics to roll heroes). Some will have the talents to grow longer, not faster, some will reach its limitation sooner

Long Nguyen: That’s all I can spoil or the game director will kill me haha

Paul Mont | Satoshi Club: Nice! So attributes and stats that combine, but will there be also purely cosmetic traits (e.g. skins or such?)

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club: what a strict director

Long Nguyen: Don’t take the cosmetic as outfit only, they will do the combination also.

Paul Mont | Satoshi Club: Brilliant, thank you for the comprehensive answer

Paul Mont | Satoshi Club: Let’s move onto the next question, shall we?

Paul Mont | Satoshi Club: And then we’ll jump into the LIVE part of the AMA

Long Nguyen: Great, I’m looking forward to the LIVE part. It’s my favorite.

Q6 from Telegram User @Asela1112

Could you please share with us the $CRYPT token allocation distribution? Because I couldn’t find your Whitepaper in your website & You have published only $CRYPT vesting schedule. On which network was it built, Is it Binance or Ethereum? Did you integrate burning mechanism & buyback system in to $CRYPT tokenomics? How about the transaction fees of $CRYPT token within Cryptia ecosystem?

Long Nguyen: In our Pitchdeck we have our token allocation. But please me share some graphics about this info.

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club: Thanks for sharing

Long Nguyen: We will have our token built in BSC, transaction fees from 2–4%. Burning mechanism: no, it’s illegal in some countries so we don’t do it. But we will do similar mechanism: lock (for a long long time 5–10 years) and recirculate later. Buyback: yes.

Paul Mont | Satoshi Club: Thank you very much for the clear answers @long_nguyen_h ! Wonderful answers so far

Paul Mont | Satoshi Club: Unless there’s anything else that you’d want to add, we can proceed with the live segment of the AMA — that would be time to interact with our community members

Part 2 — live questions from the Telegram community

Q1 from Telegram User @tomo_fan

As Game is Developed in Japan & You said that, Do develop Game in Japan is much Costiler than Other Countries, then also why did You decided to develop the Game in Japan?

Long Nguyen:

It’s good question and yes, Japanese game is 10 times cost comparing to a game developed in Vietnam, my country. You can see right now lots of gamefi coming out from Vietnam game studio also. The reason why I chose a Japanese Company is first I was in Japan for my undergrad, I know quite well how they are capable of producing a game. Second I love the dedication and joyful of Japanese members when they develop the game, very difference when they do other Salary-Man job. Their attitude towards this product is something I admire and it pushes the whole team moving forward.

Q2 from Telegram User @highpee

Since Axie made a breakthrough, many NFT and Defi gaming project that claim to have play to earn are emerging daily. Were you also inspired by this breakout? How will you offer competitive edge above others competitors?

Long Nguyen:

Play-to-earn is a trend in gamefi right now, and we also adopt our project within this trend. Our strategy is to attract players through this trend for the first few months, and after that by our gameplay. We love this trend but we still believe definition of a game — something ppl enjoy to play, not grind-to-play. Your question about competitive edge I can share 2 things:

1. Beautiful art and design

2. Nice gameplay gamers can enjoy (we are not crazy to think “all” gamers though, part of gamer community who like our genre are good enough already)

Q3 from Telegram User @Rinhere

IDO is scheduled in October month, What is the expected time that users can Play this game on the application?

Can You provide any approx date?

Long Nguyen:

To be honest I chose your question because it’s really easy haha. Main gameplay will be available on November, IOS/ Android support on the roadmap is next year but we have plan to make it available within this December already.

Q4 from Telegram User @Asela1112

Most of NFT gaming platforms used to integrate cross chain interoperability to wide their ecosystem throughout multiple chains. Do you have any plans to add cross chain interoperability in future?

Long Nguyen:

We do, it’s necessary to have cross chain interoperability, maybe developed within our project, or a platform from other projects (I hope the 2nd option). Blockchain world is developing day by day, and stay within one “comfortable” chain is not enough. Extend ourselves and reach out for more benefits to both our users and investors is a must if we want to keep this project running for a long time.

Q5 from Telegram User @victorogb

From information gotten from your twitter page, Cryptia currently runs a Community Rewards Campaign, which started a couple of days back and consequently ends today. Can you tell us how we could participate within the available time frame, what are the prizes and rewards up for grabs

Long Nguyen:

Perfect question thank you very much, I can fulfill my task MKT team gave me in this AMAs: introduce our gleam campaign. It’s very simple, just follow the link, all info is there. The prize in this round is great, but next rounds will be even better.

Q6 from Telegram User @Alixbella

How many heroes do I need to start playing and what is the minimum investment to start in your game, can I make my heroes level up or have more power buying experience packages? or as it is in Cryptia

Long Nguyen:

1 Hero (we call them adventure) is good enough for first gameplay. We will have different level of difficulties for Ruins Exploring, for easy one 1 hero is enough, going up higher we will need a team / set of adventures, each with a unique roles. We will have multiplayer (each player with an adventure) in the upcoming gameplay also, then gamers can enjoy the game with their friends

Levelup: yes, this is an RPG game so lots of upgrade are available (just a hint each characters will have “random” upgradable capability)

Q7 from Telegram User @NAZMP2

What marketing strategies does Cryptia established to engage those non-crypto gamers?

Long Nguyen:

We will start our MKT to non-crypto gamers right after the game is out, not at this moment. We have good relationship with game studios where they have professional streamers and hopefully they will agree to play our game in their stream (winks)

That’s one of the plan we have, and as many other traditional games mkt strategy, we will follow the steps

Q8 from Telegram User @Madan94495721

Will Cryptia try to secure its Smart contract by orgainsing Bug Bounty or having Audit by Audit firms? Do you guys have any Timeline for these events?

Long Nguyen:

Yes we are working on Audits with Certrix, and yes Bug Bounty is on our plan already. Must say dev team are very confident with their work but their leaders and me will have sleepless night then haha.

Q9 from Telegram User @Jamesxmen

Presently, NFTs spread rapidly in Blockchain field since the Copy right & reproduction rights. After you accomplish the mass adoption, I think Cryptia project will be famous in blockchain gaming industry. So it will be a great opportunity to expand Cryptia project by welcoming the community NFT artists to Create some digital gaming assets for Cryptia Game. May I know, that Cryptia project will be opened in future for community NFT artists? If yes, how will you facilitate them & incentivize them to create attractive gaming NFTs?

Long Nguyen:

We do have the same idea about NFTs. And yes we will have open events for not only artists but also community to come and participate in developing this game in the future. Artists will go with art, and gamers will go with gameplay features.

Q10 from Telegram User @Kargil1999

You have chosen “Redkite” as the IDO partner, But I don’t see any Fixed date, Is has not been decided yet?

Long Nguyen:

Oh lucky me they just published the news haha. It’s decided (early October) but I cannot spoil right now.

Let me share the announcement as well.
