The AMA session was divided into 3 parts with a total crypto reward pool of $500

In this AMA Recap, we will try to summarise the most interesting points for you.

Part 1 — introduction and questions from the Telegram&WebSite

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club

Greetings, dear Satoshi Club community! We are pleased to announce AMA with Tezotopia

Robocop | Satoshi Club

Hello Satoshi Club community ! We are pleased to announce today AMA with Tezotopia

Robocop | Satoshi Club

Today our special guests is @gifdotgames

Joab

Hey everyone! Thanks for having me! Can’t wait to share more about Tezotopia with you all today.

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club

Nice to e-meet you

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club

Welcome to Satoshi club

Robocop | Satoshi Club

Welcome to Satoshi Club! Joab @gifdotgames

Joab

Thank you!

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club

Let’s start with the introduction to warm up.

Robocop | Satoshi Club

How are you doing ?

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club

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

Joab

Doing great. How’s everybody?

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club

We are really excited about upcoming AMA with you

Robocop | Satoshi Club

We are great also, very excited to do AMA with Tezotopia

Well, let’s start our AMA!

Joab

My crypto journey started back in 2015 or so, but really got heated up in 2019 with the advancement of DeFi and NFTs; it’s really what influenced me to start creating Tezotopia and NFTs!

I toyed around with the idea of crossing DeFi and NFTs and Tezotopia was born. Our NFT blocks of land are known for yielding passive income and players hold them to earn resources, but also to create new things in our ecosystem. It’s been a fun ride getting here. We’ll have our Tezotopia 1 year anniversary on May 04!!

I’m ready!

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club

Tell us please about your position in Tezotopia

Joab

I am the co-Founder and creative director of Tezotopia, I am in charge of all the major decisions in the game, from game mechanics to design; I have helped shape the game thus far. I am also active in building business partnerships and strategic relationships for the future growth of gif.games as a whole!

Robocop | Satoshi Club

Thats really impressive ! by the way how big are Tezotopia team ?

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club

Give us a brief introduction to the project. What is the essence of Tezotopia?

Great background

Joab

We’re 15 members and that’s including our great Advisors!

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club

Is your team anonymous?

Joab

Tezotopia is a real-time strategy game and by some’s definition a type of metaverse in that you can own blocks of land. It is known for our use case NFTs and yield farming blocks of land; and soon we’ll be known for our battle engine that’s launching very soon on mainnet!

Joab

Nope, our founders are listed over at gif.games and all our team is in the Tezotopia tg channel. You can always find them and say hello

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club

Tell us please about the benefits of Tezotopia. How is it different from others?

Joab

Tezotopia allows players to yield farm from their blocks of land passively, by just holding a block of land you start earning tokens immediately! ALl you have to do is hit the “Claim” button!

Tezotopia is also part of a larger vision we have for gif.games, we want to create an ecosystem and variety of p2e games that incorporate all our current resources tokens in Tezotopia at the moment.

So the ecosystem is ever-expanding, we like to call it the UNOverse, after our most valuable resource Unobtanium (UNO).

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club

Thanks for great introduction, we will have several questions selected for the Part 1. Ready to start?

Robocop | Satoshi Club

Thank you for the great intro

Joab

Let’s do it

Robocop | Satoshi Club

We have collected 6 community questions for part 1 from Satoshi Club community,

ready to proceed?

Q1 From Telegram User @Brigandin88

Tezotopia is a NFT based game for Tezos which user can create a world and owned by them. So my question is what preparation that a new player do at the beginning if they want to play Tezotopia? Do they need to buy the NFT, if yes where the player can get or trade the Tezotopia NFT? And lastly can you please show me the example of Tezotopia NFT, how many type or rarity of NFT do you have inside the game?

Joab

https://app.tezotopia.com/marketplace/ is a great place to start to get knee deep into Tezotopia NFTs, players can take two routes: become a landlord or warlord –or both. Landlord focused players are typically crypto investors that want to yield farm and earn passive income as our blocks of land produce up to 4 tokenized resources: Unobtanium, Minerals, Energy, and Machinery. These resources have value and can be traded for Tezos.

They are also useful in the game to build new builds, create new blocks of land, and build & repair battle units.

The warlord is more interested in building up their army. The entry level for battles is around 15 tezos, and that can get you the 3 base units you need to get started battling and earning.

Every one of our NFTs has a use case, and the stats differ based on their production rates or attack/defense modifiers; you can view these stats and filter based on these stats within the marketplace.

Our Diplomat project, which will provide players with a strategic element in the game are ranked by rarity and that info can be found here: https://gallery.diplomats.tezotopia.com/

We also have an ongoing Battle Crate Giveaway (3 free battle units) happening in our Discord: https://discord.gg/tezotopia –learn more about getting units there, we want as many people as possible to have an opportunity to start battles, so keep an eye out on our channels to always be prepared for battle unit giveaways or NFT drops for new units.

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club

Clear answer

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club

Thanks

Robocop | Satoshi Club

So when we possible to test the gameplay from Tezotopia ?

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club

Do you already have MVP?

Joab

Right now! It’s live on Testnet.

https://testnet.app.tezotopia.com/app/battle

Robocop | Satoshi Club

Cool ! i will test it after this AMA

Joab

Let me know if you need testnet Tezos

i’ll send you some.

Robocop | Satoshi Club

Thank you !

btw how about this? do you already have MVP?

Joab

Yeah, well most the game elements are already out for Tezotopia, just battles we’re still testing and tweaking before mainnet launch.

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club

Thanks for your great answers

Joab

we’ve had most our functional game elements since last October

NOW WE GO TO WAR

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club

Ready to proceed to the next question or you want to add something?

Robocop | Satoshi Club

Thank you for the HOT and detail answer , are you ready to proceed to next question?

Joab

Ready!

Robocop | Satoshi Club

Q2 From Telegram User @Chairmanw

There are a lot of gaming blockchain with token system which claim as Play to Earn outside there. I know that Tezotopia also own 5 token name with $Gif token, but I also found similar token like $UNO, $ENR, $MCH and $MIN token so can you please explain what are the different between each of them and what are the function of that token? Also what feature makes Tezotopia NFT game different than other blockchain game?

Joab

Love this question. The ecosystem of tokens I think is what sets our game apart from the rest.

We have yield farming NFTs that passively start earning you income the moment you hold them, our blocks of land produce these tokenized resources immediately upon hitting your wallet, all you have to do is sit and watch the number tick up and hit the “claim” button.

UNO and ENR are currently used to produce blocks of land, we have a lottery system at the moment that allows you to stake these two tokens for a chance to win a ticket to mint a block of land.

ENR is also used to repair battle units. Battle units will auto-repair up to half their maximum HP, and from there it is up to you to use ENR to fully repair the battle units.

All the resources are used to create new buildings on your blocks of land and unlock new features as you start building out your blocks of land with new buildings.

Machinery (MCH) is used to create new battle units in the Barracks.

We do believe one of the original sins of Tezotopia was having so many tokenized in-game assets. We go back and forth on whether we should reel it in and just focus on Unobtanium, but we also see an opportunity to create a continuum of games with many ecosystem tokens. We are embracing our wayward options and finding utility for each of our resources. The shortlist below is some of things coming up and already in place for use cases for our tokens:

UNO

– Used to create certain buildings & units

– Stake X Amount of UNO to produce Artifacts

– UNO-priced stock artifacts

– UNO for Mana (Light force) within Matterlight (or next game)

– UNO as a currency in Metzopia (the metaverse we are working on)

MIN

– Used to create certain buildings

– Stake X Amount of MIN to produce Glyphstones

– Use MIN to create building blocks within Metzopia

ENR

– Used to create certain buildings & units

– Used to repair battle units

– Used to recharge Glyphstones

MCH

– Used to create certain buildings & units

– Initiate bombardment/artillery strikes within Battles

– Initiate Spy unit tasks

– Build exploration devices to seek resources & land beyond our humble Tezotopia…

Robocop | Satoshi Club

Interesting concept ! But maybe a little bit confusing in the beginning , we need time to learn it

Joab

It can be a bit of a learning curve, but we’re working on creating simiplified infographics and walkthroughs to help with onboarding!

It’s a whole economy we’re building, not just a game!

It can get complex

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club

This is a rather unusual and unique solution. You really thought of the details!

Robocop | Satoshi Club

Btw can you share the tokenomics for Tezotopia?

Joab

oh boy lol yeah the tokenomics is quite complex.

our most valuable resource Unobtanium has a max supply of 333,333

Currently there’s a little less that 5,000 circulating

About 2000+ has already been burned (it’s burned each time a new block of land is created)

About 80 UNO is emitted a day.

For all resources there are different base emission rates and they only come from blocks of land produced.

UNO: Emission Rate: 0.0005/hour

MIN: Emission Rate: 0.5/hour

ENR: Emission Rate: 0.75/hour

MCH: Emission Rate: 0.25/hour

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club

Guys you know how to surprise

Robocop | Satoshi Club

Thank you for sharing, do we possible to get all token inside the game ? or we should buy, if yes can you share the link where we can get/buy the token?

Joab

You can buy tokens on Quipuswap!

Joab

They should all be whitelisted on QuipuSwap, so you can just type in “energy” “minerals” machinery” and they’ll pop up!

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club

Thanks for your answers!

Robocop | Satoshi Club

Thank you for the answer, do you want to add something or we can go to 3rd question?

Joab

Onward!

Robocop | Satoshi Club

Q3 From Telegram User @meml97

I noticed that in Tezotopia, players have the option of becoming Landlords or Warlords, can you give us more details about this roles users can fulfill on the game? How can someone become a Landlord or a Warlord and what are they duties on each role? Also, what kind of benefits can they receive from it? And, what kind of challenges will they face either as a Landlord or as a Warlord? As a final doubt, I was wondering, can someone become both a Landlord and a Warlord at the same time or switch from one role to the other if they want to?

Joab

As answered above, yes, you can become both Warlord and Landlord: and the benefits of one benefit the other, Landlords can build barracks to create battle units, Warlords can win Tickets to Mint new land to become Landlords themselves; it’s an ecosystem we are proud of and we want to only build upon that with future titles using all the same tokens we use in Tezotopia.

Landlords could be much more passive players, holding land and earning tokens, whereas the Warlord is more active and goes to battle to earn new NFTs, resources, and Tickets to Mint new blocks of land.

Robocop | Satoshi Club

Is that mean Tezotopia also have NFT land ?

Joab

oh yes! That’s how it all started! You can explore the Continents of Tezotopia here: https://app.tezotopia.com/map-explorer

Robocop | Satoshi Club

Thank you for the detail answer

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club

Thanks! Answers are great

Robocop | Satoshi Club

Let’s continue to next question?

Joab

let’s do it.

Robocop | Satoshi Club

Q4 from Telegram User @BigMacDi

Passing through your roadmap, I noticed you mentioning Bonkees as one of your next epic title; on the same grand scale as Tezotopia, you are hoping to start revealing pieces of Bonkees, the storyline and universe. So what is Bonkees as par of Tezotopia? You mention that Bonkees can be claimed by the community on May 04, 2022. What are then requirements for participation and eligibility? How can users further use bonkees within Tezotopia? Thank you!

Robocop | Satoshi Club

I have personal question, what is Bonkees ?

Joab

B — Build

O — Optimize

N — Neutralize

K — Kill

E — Explore

E — Excavate

BONKEEs are the robots in Tezotopia lore that leave the mainland continents and go explore new worlds beyond our humble infinite continents. The Bonkees title has been postponed as we have the opportunity to work with Las Vegas entrepreneur Gavin Maloof to build a Virtual Vegas metaverse we are tentatively calling “Metzopia” –Metzopia will become a hub for all our play to earn titles and incorporate entertainment brands and individuals that will maximize the value of the NFTs and environment within the virtual experience.

We’re excited to announce more in the coming months about Metzopia.

We will be launching Matterlight Q2-Q3 2022; our trading card game, and there will be opportunities to claim a free deck of cards to get started with Matterlight in the next few months! As always stay tuned into our gif.games announcement channel to learn more or subscribed to our blog!

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club

Wow! this is a great find

Thanks for your answers

Robocop | Satoshi Club

Btw can you please share the roadmap from Tezotopia?

Joab

Yep! That’s in documentation library: https://docs.gif.games/roadmap

May need some updating. But it’s there for the most part.

Robocop | Satoshi Club

Thank you for sharing, are you ready for the next question?

Joab

Let’s keep it going!

Robocop | Satoshi Club

Q5 from Telegram User @Billz120

Tezotopia I learnt allows you claim land and produce tokenized resources in this Blockchain space adventure, and Tezotopia you did said is an NFT game that allows it’s players to become king or conqueror or both, and as well as allows players to earn off yield Farming NFTs known as TEZOTOPS or to wage battle against other players to win lootboxes staked with various prizes such as Unobtanium, rare artifacts, and collectibles. Could you explain to us the various ways through which land can be claimed in Tezotopia? Can you explain to us about this Concept of “off yield Farming NFT earns? Finally, how many lootboxes do you have in Tezotopia?

Joab

We currently have a lottery system that will be taken offline once we launch battles, but currently if you join the lottery by staking UNO and ENR you have a chance to win a Ticket to Mint a new block of land. And as mentioned before, the moment you mint land, you can begin claiming tokens to use in the game or to trade.

The yield farming NFTs are the blocks of lands themselves, all you have to do is hold them in your wallet and hit “claim” on the Tezotopia dashboard.

We are transitioning to earning the Tickets to Mint after a victorious battle! So you’ll be allowed to earn the chance to mint a block of land from battling.

Every victory yields a lootbox! This is subject to change, but the prizes will vary from tokens, NFTs and Tickets!

Robocop | Satoshi Club

Btw i also read that Tezotopia also the first game blockchain inside Tezos Blockchain, is this true? can you give a reason why choose Tezos Blockchain?

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club

which wallet would you recommend us to use to join the game.

Joab

Absolutely. We believe Tezos is on the verge of massive adoption. It has some of the lowest transaction fees, and one of the fastest networks. It is a self-amending blockchain, and we recently went through the NINTH update to the network!

No need for forking, it’s all upgrading and evolving and we love it. Tezos community is also incredibly friendly and hungry for growth, so the support has been amazing.

We saw the opportunity in the upward growth in NFTs and DeFi. We jumped on the chance to be the first!

Joab

We recommend Temple (which is very similar to MetaMask): https://templewallet.com/

And Kukai Wallet, which is a browser-based wallet you can login with Twitter, Google, and soon Apple ID! : https://wallet.kukai.app/account/tz2Rr8ssGCeRznW5X6R23MTsiZtTMFgJ7JqV

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club

Thanks for your clarification

Robocop | Satoshi Club

I like your ambitious goals!

Joab

You can purchase Tezos directly from either of those wallets!

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club

You are really amazing, guys

Are you ready for the last question of this part?

Robocop | Satoshi Club

Thank you for the detail answer!

Joab

Hit me with the last one!

Been great so far!

Robocop | Satoshi Club

Q6 from Telegram User

@thisistoyin

Going through your whitepaper, What I observed about your game was that it keeps getting more and more interesting as I read on. I came across another interesting futures which were SPIES and DIPLOMATS, and from what I was able to gather about the two was that, the SPICE can actually be Redeemed through LOOTBOXES. While there are about 4545 Original Diplomats which will exist prior to the use case functions of Diplomats and Spies launch. Can you share the functions and use cases of these SPIES AND DIPLOMATS? Please are these SPICES and DIPLOMATS already launched and functional? Can you please elaborate more on how users in your game can get their hands on these Lootboxes to get these SPIES AND DIPLOMATS?

Joab

Yes, we want to incorporate more elements to the “meta game” of Tezotopia and add a real time strategy element with the incorporation of Spies and Diplomats to the world of Tezotopia.

We are allowing users to propose new offers, create alliances, and use their diplomats to establish relationships with other Landlords in Tezotopia. As well Spies are used to sabotage, gain information from those around you.

These elements will be incorporated throughout the year as we continue to expand the features available to users and perfect the battle engine itself as it is our main p2e element.

We wanted to push out the Battles before we started incorporating these “strategic” components outside the warzone elements. We’re excited to keep building upon what we’ve created!

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club

share your roadmap with us please by the way

Joab

Already did:

Joab

Yep! That’s in documentation library: https://docs.gif.games/roadmap

Robocop | Satoshi Club

Do Tezotopia have DAO system ?

Joab

it’s the $GIF token, but the DAO system isn’t currently in place. That’s something we’re hoping to launch this year. A lot of the community voting happens in our Telegram and Discord right now.

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club

Well…. please share all useful social networks before we open a chat

Robocop | Satoshi Club

Thank you for the detail answer! it has been an amazing time in this first part of the AMA

Joab

yes! join our discord (we have a Battle Crate Giveaway happening RIGHT NOW https://discord.gg/tezotopia

Robocop | Satoshi Club

Now is time to proceed with the second part, the live segment part 2, are you ready for the storm of question?

Joab

LETS DO IT

Robocop | Satoshi Club

We will open chat for 2 minutes and then chat will be closed –

you can start select 10 best questions !

Robocop | Satoshi Club

Chat will be open in 5

Part 2 — live questions from the Telegram community

Q1 from Telegram user 🙋🏻‍♂️ Kevin 📊

I read that by having $GIF, there will be different rewards depending on the amount you have. Can you tell us more about this? What will be the different levels of user participation depending on the amount of $GIFs they have? Can you give us some examples?

Joab

Yes! We have different tiers for Staking $GIF

100k GIF staked qualifies you to earn from the 3% Revenue Share pool we have setup for GIF holders

3% OF ALL MARKETPLACE SALES IS PUT IN A REVENUE SHARE POOL THAT THE COMMUNITY CAN EARN FROM!

Staking 25000 GIF allows you to receive a 3% discount from our NFT Drops.

Q2 from Telegram user @Ravan_since_1996

Can mobile players also play your game or is it available only for PC players?
And have you guys any app?

Joab

Yes! We were testing Battles this morning on Mobile! You can use Kukai wallet on a mobile browser to access battles successfully. Works great!

Since it is browser based, it works on both mobile and PC!

Q3 from Telegram user @Robotliker1

Could you please list some of your partners of the project? Has there been any partnership or funds raised from ventures? What are your revenue model and marketing strategies?

Joab

We are at the moment completely self-funded! But we have brought on wonderful advisors from GAP and most recently Gavin Maloof joined us to connect us to his wonderful Las Vegas network to help expand our ambitions in P2E and Metaverse; we are currently in talks with Fortune 500 companies that we’ll soon be announcing partnerships with.

Q4 from Telegram user @YRUSelling

There are many resources in Tezotopia. Is there any guide to learn more about their functioning?

Joab

There’s 4! Unobtanium, Minerals, Energy, Machinery!

Learn about them here: https://docs.gif.games/our-tokens

Q5 from Telegram user @Costurera3000

Are the battles done interactively or does the smart contract randomly determine the winner? What are the unique attributes that robots can have for battles? And how do you guarantee that players have an equal chance of winning a battle?

Joab

Battles all happen in real-time. You lock your battle unit NFTs into a smart contract and take them into battle.

Here’s a look at the battlefield! It’s a type of chess-like battle.

Check it out on testnet!

https://testnet.app.tezotopia.com/app/battle

Q6 from Telegram user @vezir77

What do you think about the competition in the NFT Gaming field? How will you keep Tezotopia alive in this competitive environment? What makes you stronger and unique than others?

Joab

We are actively building major partnerships, and creating an ecosystem of games to make our Tokens successful and in turn make the entire Tezotopian experience better for players and investors. Continuing to build an ecosystem is our priority.

Q7 from Telegram user @Kabirkapoor9

Dont you think naming the project as ‘Tezotopia’ will limit the opportunity to explore other blockchains beyond Tezos?

Joab

Nope. If people can have fun and earn, they’ll look past the name. The name is origins, but we also want to play on the trope of “This Chain” vs “That Chain” and have players come from all over and do battle on Tezotopia to rep their Chain of choice

Q8 from Telegram user @Akay_op

Can we see you guys collaborating with another project in the future? I think collaboration with any gamer give a good boost to this project and attract more user on platform.

Joab

We’re seeking some relationships with ETH NFT projects. We embrace collaboration on Tezos and are always doing the most to promote projects on our chain, but we are ready to spread our wings and reach across to other projects and build up our bases together!

Q9 from Telegram user @uncrowned_king_007

Can we have to go through any KYC to register on your platform or not? Please give details about this.

Joab

No KYC, connect your wallet -> create username

Q10 from Telegram user @mamamelos2

Many projects seek to meet their goals with the support of the community. So, could you tell me what is your goal in programming this Great AMA in the Satoshi Club community? How can we help you? And how do you see this Community for the success of your project? Do you think this community is important for your project?

Joab

Community has been the most important thing in the year of our existence. We have found that the moment new users jump onto our channels and experience the friendliness and fun that our communities offer, they stay for the longterm!

We’d love to see the Satoshi Clubbers become a vital part of Tezotopia and we’ll make sure you Satoshi Clubbers get rewarded for your support.

I thank you all for your questions today, and I’m excited to keep up with Satoshi Club in the future to do more AMAs as we continue to expand.

Part 3 — Quiz Results

As usual, for the third part, Satoshi Club Team asked the chat 4 questions about the crypto project. A link to a Quiz form was sent into the chat.
