Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club: Hello and welcome to Satoshi Club, @mattlarby @Joban_T!

Andrés M. | Satoshi Club: Welcome to Satoshi Club guys

Matthew Larby — Realm Maker: Thanks for having us

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club: Thanks again for joining guys!

Let’s start!

Introduce yourself please. How did you get to be involved in crypto & Realm?

Tell us please about your position Realm?

Matthew Larby — Realm Maker: Hey there, my name is Matthew Larby, I am the founder and CEO of Realm. I have been building with hardware and software for the last 20 years with the last decade focussed on software.

Joban: Sure! I’m Joban and I have been involved in tech startups and crypto for many years. I love building great products with super clean UX and elegant solutions. I take the role of CPO, Creative Director and have also been a CTO and technical consultant for large brands and startups.

Matthew Larby — Realm Maker: I previously founded a web 2.0 tech business with Joban:where we built an internal GPS system and an ecommerce software layer that connected people with the services that were available in the buildings they use. We eventually sold that business to a tech billionaire who had a large commercial property portfolio.

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club: What is the essence of Realm?

Matthew Larby — Realm Maker: Virtual spaces where you can explore, transact and experience virtual assets including NFTs

We wanted to make a more immersive virtual experience than flat NFT marketplaces

done

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club: Great background, guys! @mattlarby @Joban_T!

Also we would like to know about your team. Who is on the project team core?

Matthew Larby — Realm Maker: Thanks, the rest of the team are even better

Sure so we are up to 12 engineers now, 3 blockchain specialists who have worked at places like the german govt on blockchain. 6 full stack engineers, some doctors of maths and machine learning. Then on the creative side people like Saiful who did creative for Avatar and worked at Riot games

Andrés M. | Satoshi Club:How big is it? Are you hiring new personal?

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club: Wow! great team

Matthew Larby — Realm Maker: You can find more on our website. www.realm.art

Yes if you go to our website there is a careers section at the bottom. We are always looking for smart people to join us. The project is very creative but also highly challenging, we combine blockchain with essentially a game environment, audio, multiplayer dynamics etc. Say hello to us

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club: Satoshi Clubbers! don’t miss your chance to be part of a good team!

Andrés M. | Satoshi Club: Wow, then you need experienced and prepared people, we have talented members that I’m sure want to apply

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club: Thanks for the introduction, we will have a question selected for the Part 1. ready to start?

Joban: Sure!

Matthew Larby — Realm Maker: Let’s do it

Q1 from Telegram user @MaxiVV

I understand that i can create my own REALM even i can combine music, art, and games to create the perfect realm, i can Plant trees to make food & feed pets too. it seems to me amazing, it’s magical all the options we have here, but it sounds a little difficult to me too. How easy is create a REALM? Does it need some special technical knowledges or can anyone do it without problems? All of this is beautiful, but i wonder where will save my microverse? Do i need an app for doing everything i mentioned before?

Matthew Larby — Realm Maker: I will let joban answer how to make a realm and I will explain that you can just explore realms and discover NFTs so you don’t need any special skills to start with Realm

Joban: Great question! So we’re working on providing tools for users of all types — we want Realm to be accessible so that some people can create super technical visions and others can choose a template and display their NFTs and socialise with their friends

For example, non-technical players can choose from several Realm templates, such as Art Gallery, Cyberpunk, Samurai to easily create their own space. For skilled creators, Godot allows us to provide advanced tools for creation. Realm will ultimately contain a fully fledged gaming ecosystem hosting features such as physics, game mechanics, and monetisation opportunities.

Andrés M. | Satoshi Club: Even non-crypto users can easily create their own realm?

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club: great answer! By the way, I really like your design! say thank you to your designer

Joban: We’re working on creating simple on-ramps. Realms themselves are NFTs so there is always an element of crypto — but we will make it as smooth as possible !

Matthew Larby — Realm Maker: Yes we think everybody will have their own virtual space in the future

We are making a mobile app that is so simple you can create your own realm in a few taps.

Andrés M. | Satoshi Club: Could you share us some NFTs designs from your platform? We love digital art

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club: I think this is a soft mass adoption.

Andrés M. | Satoshi Club: Agree!

Matthew Larby — Realm Maker: We are definitely aiming for mass adoption and a web 2.0 user friendly experience.

Joban:

Here’s a teaser

Andrés M. | Satoshi Club: Awesome

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club: It is mesmerizing

Andrés M. | Satoshi Club: Congrats for the designer

Matthew Larby — Realm Maker: The entire realm itself is an ERC1155, so you can virtually explore the NFT

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club: Thank you very much for your answers and clarifications! Ready for the next question?

Matthew Larby — Realm Maker: Thanks,

Yes

Q2 from Telegram User @lzamg

It is known that the transactions and minting of NFTs have a big environmental impact since an NFT transaction can reach a carbon footprint of 48kg CO2, so it got my attention that you plant real trees when trees are planted in Realm. Is this your way of balancing the carbon emissions generated by NFTs? Are Realm and the technology it uses environmental-friendly?

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club: It seems amazing to me too! you are green!

Matthew Larby — Realm Maker: Great question. We’ve spent a long time thinking about how virtual worlds can impact the real world. We are using Polygon to be more efficient when processing transactions. So for instance, a transaction processed on Polygon is about 8500x less emissions than a transaction processed on Layer 1 Ethereum.

So to counteract the small amount of CO2 we emit, we have partnered with Eden Reforestation, who will plant trees in real life every time someone plants a virtual tree in Realm.

When you plant virtual trees in Realm, they make fruit which the pets and creatures that live in realms eat. This creates an economy inside realms that also fixes the real world.

It’s very important that we become carbon neutral using these mechanisms as it helps us appeal to a broad market and also means the mainstream press will cover our metaverse.

We really want the whole world to experience Realm, not just crypto people as it makes for a strong business and token.

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club: This is a very cool feature of your project. To be honest, I have never met this

Andrés M. | Satoshi Club: That’s a great strategy, what other benefits will receive the players? Is there any staking or farming feature?

Matthew Larby — Realm Maker: You can stake $REALM tokens to unlock more functionality for your realm, eg, to allow more people to be inside it at once. We also allow you to stake your NFT pet into a genetic breeding contract to make offspring. The farming will be what you do with trees and fruit…

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club: Sounds great

Andrés M. | Satoshi Club: Thanks for the clear answers.

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club: Ready to proceed to the next question?

Matthew Larby — Realm Maker: Also if your community is into free tokens then enter our allocation competition here https://gleam.io/ZJ03Q/realm-pre-ido-allocation

I am

Andrés M. | Satoshi Club: A big contest Satoshiclubbers, let’s join

Q3 from Telegram User @chzrles

How many evolutions can a single pet have in Realm? It is said that Pets evolve based on realms they visit, but is there a limit of evolutions? Also, what advanced features could be unlocked through the evolutions of the pets?

Matthew Larby — Realm Maker: The short answer is infinite and that’s why it’s so important to do this on the blockchain, we literally have no idea what could come out 100 years later. @Joban_T will add more info

Joban: We looked to the concept of epigenetics for the ways in which pets mutate — they are affected by their parents genes, their surroundings, and the interactions they have. There is no theoretical limit to the impact of these, and the pet breeding and mutation is something that will evolve organically from the genesis of each pet species.

Andrés M. | Satoshi Club: $Realm tokens are needed to use the platform? Then, how we can buy the token? Where is listed?

Joban: We are using Chainlink VRF for the randomisation of values in the genetic algorithms, so that everyone can be sure that the numbers are verifiably fair.

Yes REALM is the primary utility token of the platform

Matthew Larby — Realm Maker: $REALM will be available on Uniswap and a Tier 1 exchange shortly after the IDO.

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club: When do you plan IDO?

Joban: We will also be providing liquidity to Quickswap for our Polygon sidechain REALM — giving virtually free transactions for users

Matthew Larby — Realm Maker: We plan to IDO around the middle of JULY

Andrés M. | Satoshi Club: Great news

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club: It will be very soon!

Matthew Larby — Realm Maker: Definitely

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club: Thank you very much for your answers and suggest to proceed to the next question

Q4 from Telegram User @kimterbear

Realm features ultra high quality of graphics using Augmented Reality applied into a mobile application. By the concept, I can see it very similar to the popular game “Pokemon Go” where users travel to be able to play the game. Is it inspired by the said game? How does the game really work? Will the game be available in Virtual Reality (VR) too to further enhance user experience?

Matthew Larby — Realm Maker: We definitely like Pokemon Go and we are designing Realm to include some of those fun types of features such as interacting with an NFT in Augmented Reality. Where we differ is we are cross platform so you can play Realm on your PC or mobile. In the 2022 we will start to allow you to explore Realm using your Virtual Reality goggles, which will be next level fun

done

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club: I’m sure this will be a revolution in this direction.

Andrés M. | Satoshi Club: Amazing things are coming

, what else is inside your roadmap? Please share it with us

Matthew Larby — Realm Maker: We have some surprises coming that nobody has done before with these technologies. It will

Andrés M. | Satoshi Club: Any sneak peek for our community?

Joban: Lets just say we have some super cool partnerships and exclusives coming

Matthew Larby — Realm Maker: Let’s just say we will put you inside the virtual realm “literally”

This too

Andrés M. | Satoshi Club: What are your current partnerships?

Joban: We have a few that we cant announce yet — but on the technical side we have Reef & Polygon (Matic)

Andrés M. | Satoshi Club: You mentioned polygon and Eden reforestation

Joban: We have partnered with Reef Finance to build on Reef Chain, which is a substrate chain that launched last week. This is a good stepping stone to the wider Polkadot ecosystem. We are partnering with Polygon and will do most of our ETH transactions on their sidechain.

Andrés M. | Satoshi Club: We understand and we will waiting for those big coming announcements

Matthew Larby — Realm Maker: Aside from technical partnership we are partnering with very popular NFT brands that have cool characters and want them to come to life in Realm

Q5 from Telegram User @yellowchamp

According to your website that we can earn $REALM tokens for mastering the realms. So for those who did not familiar about how to make a realm,do you have any tutorial video or guidelines to teach how to make a realm? Do you have any learning materials in your platform? By mastering realms,how does realms being rated inorder to earn more $REALM token? Thank you

Joban: So theres a number of ways you can earn REALM for mastering the realms — Firstly our community allocation is massive — 25% of the total supply will go to the community! This means that we will be rewarding creators and players for creating and engaging with the platform

Matthew Larby — Realm Maker: We expect most people that interact with Realm to just be walking around people’s virtual spaces looking at their NFT art and discovering cool rare NFTs from realm eggs

For those people that want to create a realm there will be instructions on how to import 3D objects or you can just use one of our simple to use templates

Andrés M. | Satoshi Club: How is the token amount distribution of Realm? I mean the tokenomics

Matthew Larby — Realm Maker: Community & Staking: 25%

Team: 21%

Operations: 16.55%

Product: 12.4%

Liquidity: 1%

Investors: 9.9%

Advisors: 8.9%

Partners: 5.2%

I rounded some of the numbers.

Andrés M. | Satoshi Club: And what about the security of the users, have you audited your contracts to be sure that’s funds are safe?

Matthew Larby — Realm Maker: All code goes through an internal check then is shipped to an auditer for external security check. Our audit is being sent out in a 1 week.

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club: Thank you very much for sharing! ready for the last question of this part?

Matthew Larby — Realm Maker: yes lets do it.

Q6 from Telegram User @andrey_seleznov

Hi Realms!

Users will be able to create their own Realm where they can combine music, art, and games to create the perfect realm and mint it as an ERC-1155. Will there be limitations and copyright checks on the content users can use? If a user mints their own art or music, will they be entitled for royalties if their content is used in other realms? I am excited about your idea to plant a tree for every tree planted in Realm, this is an amazing initiative! I hope you can keep up with demand

Matthew Larby — Realm Maker: Ok this is a few questions

: Yes you can combine music art etc into your realm and then mint it as an ERC1155. You cannot breach copyright law and we are going to implement machine learning to highlight NFTs that are clearly copies. When we find a copy the NFT will go to a decentralised moderation panel who can limit the visibility of that art but not remove it from the blockchain

A for royalties of your own NFTs, they can be automatically split between multiple people and after multiple sales

done

Andrés M. | Satoshi Club: Well, that’s amazing, definitively your project has great fundamentals, that we call a gem

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club: Thank you very much for your wonderful answers!

Andrés M. | Satoshi Club: Thank you so much for your answers for this first part of the AMA, have been a great time for us and our members.

Now is time to proceed with the live segment of the AMA. Be ready Satoshiclubbers

So theres a number of ways you can earn REALM for mastering the realms — Firstly our community allocation is massive — 25% of the total supply will go to the community! This means that we will be rewarding creators and players for creating and engaging with the platform

Matthew Larby — Realm Maker: We expect most people that interact with Realm to just be walking around people’s virtual spaces looking at their NFT art and discovering cool rare NFTs from realm eggs

For those people that want to create a realm there will be instructions on how to import 3D objects or you can just use one of our simple to use templates

Part 2 — live questions from the Telegram community

Q1 from telegram username @JoxesXIII

How are the exhibitions going to be organized? Are the galleries always open or will they be organized through scheduled events?

Joban: Good question — a gallery owner can choose to put events on whenever they want and for as long as they want. When you purchase an NFTix it could be for a year’s entry or just for a few days or hours. You will be able to purchase tickets in our super clean mobile app.

Q2 from telegram username @Elise_04

In order to succeed, most projects aim to grow their network and collaborate with new groups. Could you elaborate on the REALM collaboration strategy?

Could you please provide us with an update on your Roadmap’s progress and the accomplishments REALM has achieved so far? Is there any information about REALM 2021 plans?

Matthew Larby — Realm Maker: Yes so we are partnering with NFT creators who have NFTs that they want to bring to life in a virtual game type environment. We are partnering with tier 1 NFT artists to give them better spaces to exhibit their work, for instance we include live audio like Clubhouse App into the realm that is displaying the NFT art.

In terms of the roadmap for 2021, we have basically finished our smart contracts, Layer 2 integrations on polygon etc. Going forward we are focussed on the simple creator tools that enable you to make realms easier, on the smart objects that enable you to monetise a realm, eg adding a virtual shop to the realm and finally on building more cool realms for people to explore and pets to find ; )

Q3 from telegram username @potentialsake

Which token do I need to have in order to get Realm NFT’s?

Joban: Realm NFTs will be available with REALM tokens, whilst some genesis pets will be available with ETH via OpenSea auctions. Later we will have NFTs on Reef chain too!

Q4 from telegram username @Eminet001

Are you legit,

What the ASSURANCE of not RUGPULL AND SCAM

HOW do we trust you.?

Matthew Larby — Realm Maker: The entire team is public, the founders worked on their last business for 6 years. When we start a project we don’t give up. We see a future where people will spend increasingly more time in virtual worlds and we want Realm to be a powerful decentralised virtual world that cannot be censored or centrally owned, eg by Epic games

Q5 from telegram username @Einsteinyl

One of the function from Realm token is about collection auctions. The method for distribution token will be creator competitions, staking and loot eggs. Actually I understand about competition and staking but what about loot eggs? Can you explain about loot eggs? And what other uses cases for Realm token?

Joban: Loot eggs have lots of uses — they can be found throughout the microverses, or you can purchase rare eggs that may contain super rare pets or other special NFTs. The eggs can exist on Reef Chain, Polygon and ETH layer 1 — and the contents could prove very valuable.

Q6 from telegram username@costurera3000

Users can create their own kingdoms with the features they want, but do you need programming knowledge to do this? What game engine is used to create the realms?

@mattlarby @Joban_T

Matthew Larby — Realm Maker: You will not need to know programming language, we are making smart objects that you can just drag into place and then you have the functionality. It will be as easy as fortnite to build with our creation tools. But if you are advanced you can use your existing programs and import the work into Realm via our import pipelines

Q7 from telegram username@adaatalay

Do you have an IOS/Android phone app?

What are Realm compatible hardware for AR and VR?

Joban: Yes, we will be launching an iOS and Android app, as well as Web, Mac, PC and in 2022 VR (web VR so any compatible headset — Oculus, Vive etc)

Q8 from telegram username @Chinthaka93

“Built with Godot open-source game engine” Could you please explain about this GODOT open source game engine? What are the advantges of being built with GODOT? Could you please explain? @mattlarby @Joban_T

Joban: Godot is a powerful, lightweight, and community-driven game engine that is very different to centralised engines such as Unity and Unreal. Working withGodot means the Realm engine is completely independent of any centralised entity who could impose censorship or control. It also is very lightweight and we can build easily for all platforms — you wont have to download a 1.5GB game file like most unity / unreal games!

Q9 from telegram username @bestQ420

Do you have any Coin Burn / BuyBack systems or any $Token Burn plans to increase the value of Token & attract Investors to invest?

Matthew Larby — Realm Maker: Yes if you own $REALM tokens every transaction will pay a % out to $REALM holders. Also as bigger realms are made we will ask creators to lock up $REALM tokens which will reduce the supply over time. The bigger we make the virtual world the more transactions and less supply = price up

Q10 from telegram username @Wong2008

Do you have already some support from strong crypto entities and influencers?

Joban:

We’re supported by some awesome crypto investors and influencers

Part 3 — Quiz Results
