Please, introduce yourself and tell us more about Opher
Omar Nabil: This is Omar Nabil, CEO, and Founder of Opher, It’s a pleasure running this AMA together today, and I’m totally excited to share with your community what Opher is all about
What is Opher? We’re a subscription-based app that connects you with your favorite brands and platforms in which you need to continually be informed with its news, and Opher keeps you updated with the latest offers and deals in the form of push-notifications, so you don’t miss a thing at all!
D. | Satoshi Club: sounds good! it should be very convenient
Mary | Satoshi Club: It’s interesting! But can you tell us why you need blockchain for this?
Omar Nabil: Of course, We want to bring convenience to everyday users and merchants, and simplify the experience for them
Blockchain is needed for this project for security reasons and to keep the user’s data base safe and help design a better app for them based on their requirements
Mary | Satoshi Club: It makes sense
How old is Opher project?
Omar Nabil: We are working on the demo that will be public during April this year, and we hope to have the app launched this June
Mary | Satoshi Club: When did you start to work on it?
D. | Satoshi Club: not too long to wait
Omar Nabil: We have started working on it two months ago
Mary | Satoshi Club: Got it! Young but fast developing project
Thank you for your introduction! Ready to start with the questions from our community?
Omar Nabil: yes, time is of utmost importance to us
D. | Satoshi Club: let’s start!
Q1 from Telegram user @Unknown_Mark
I saw on you website that Opher is my everyday-app that alerts me about deals and offers from local and worldwide restaurants and stores, Can you please tell me how this function will work? I mean what should I do to keep up with all the offers from all the restaurants and stores ? Thanks
Omar Nabil: Of course, the process is quite simple! After you download the app and subscribe to the channels you want to remain linked to, you are notified accordingly in that sequence, We believe that Opher would have hundreds of partners in our network from various retailers, brands, and websites, but, of course, you will not receive any of these alerts, only the ones you have shown interest in and have gladly followed.
Hope this made things clearer
Mary | Satoshi Club: Do we already have such kind if projects in blockchain industry? I mean your competitors?
Omar Nabil: We don’t believe there are other platforms that include everything from stores, restaurants, e-commerce as well as blockchain and crypto-related platforms, to have it as a one-stop app for all news, that’s what makes Opher special
Mary | Satoshi Club: Wow, i remember someone called this ‘blue ocean’ strategy
Ready to proceed?
Omar Nabil: Yep, Let’s go!
Q2 from Telegram user @stevefix56
Opher offers wide range benefits from instant communication finding deals and offers from favorite brands. Am concerned about Opher team. What is the capacity of your team? Considering the volume of stores available worldwide. how will your team integrate updates on these stores. How do Opreh get funds in running of the app?
Omar Nabil: Merchants and partners are the ones responsible for releasing updates and news on our app to be received into your phones, and about the team, It’s a great time that can make a great app, and bring up great ideas always, therefore we always make sure to hire qualified individuals who show great interest in what we are creating, We also plan on acquiring international merchants and partners, that’s why our team is quite diversified and special
Mary | Satoshi Club: You have international team, right?
Omar Nabil: We have private investors and are working on it, as our token sale receivables will all be in locked liquidity
D. | Satoshi Club: please, tell us about your team. how many people working on Opher app at the moment?

Q3 from Telegram user @meml97
Opher is a subscription based app, but it offers quite a lot of things that other free apps offers, so, how are you planning to convince people to pay their subscription to Opher? How are you going to make them believe that you are their best choice no matter if they have to pay for it or not? Speaking of, how will this subscription be, how much do we have to pay?
Omar Nabil: The application is for free! to all users and merchants, but there are some extra special features that token holders will be able to do in our app, giving them more benefits, As for Opher’s token, is created to simplify the use of the application and give more options to its holders, once issued and bought, users can utilize the token in many ways like:
1. Subscribe and follow as many shops, brands, and channels as they want.
2. An infinite number of push notifications are issued from the categories they follow and are interested in
3. To compile the sales and offers inside the application itself, in a special list to be easily found and revisited
4. In addition to being updated with notifications from the website or store that are announced by the partner or merchant itself, the token’s holders can receive coupons and special codes designed by our team exclusively for those owning any amount of the tokens.
D. | Satoshi Club: got it! nice benefits for token holders!
by the way, which blockchain you use for your app? is it one of the existing blockchains or your own?
Omar Nabil: We are using Ethereum
Mary | Satoshi Club: Yes, token holders will really benefit
Which supply will you have? How tokens will be distributed?
Omar Nabil: We will release all the info needed on the token sale in an article on our medium, so stay tuned
D. | Satoshi Club: are you not afraid gas fees? or you app will solve/avoid this problem?
Mary | Satoshi Club: Got it! Will definitely follow your updates!

D. | Satoshi Club: understood, thanks
ready for the next question?
Omar Nabil: yes
Q4 from Telegram user @alice_wonderland12
Opher plans to be in touch with several centralized brands, do you plan to have a role in DeFi? If you do, how will you be able to manage the fact of including centralized peers while keeping the market place decentralized?
Omar Nabil: We do not have a role in DeFi, it has nothing to do with the app
Mary | Satoshi Club: You know, it’s very fashionable now to use DeFi or NFT
D. | Satoshi Club: so you not planning any actions in DeFi direction?
Omar Nabil: Nope
Mary | Satoshi Club: Understand! Thanks!
Ready to go to the next question?
Omar Nabil: yes
D. | Satoshi Club: let’s do this!
Q5 from Telegram user @Highpee
Push Notification is more appreciated when it is relevant and necessary. Just as we have in email services where spam message are filtered from important ones, will Opher have a way of ensuring that the notifications that are pushed to users are relevant? Does your service control how users are notified and can user themselves control and customise the notification pushed to them such as the type, frequency or set priority?
Omar Nabil: Push notifications are a golden ticket for some brands, but sometimes they get to be annoying if don’t get to the right audience, We are here to make things easier for people, not harder
bear in mind that the audience has willingly downloaded the app, and is ready to receive notifications from their favorite stores to which they have subscribed, as long as we don’t misuse this push-notifications special feature, by sending them out to every store’s or platform’s subscribers, instead of sending a mass bulk of notifications randomly.
Mary | Satoshi Club: Will you control the number of notifications which stores will send?
Because even one store can be annoying
Omar Nabil: We will do our best to make it as organized as possible and make sure that merchants and partners to not spam their users even if they have subscribed to them
Mary | Satoshi Club: Great!
Ready for the 6th and last question from this part?
