Seascape AMA Recap January 2021!

Seascape Network has a practically unending stream of AMAs with your top questions. As we keep the AMA train rolling, we will be periodically doing updates on the top questions we have received to compile a reference guide. We conducted AMAs on the 8th, 12th, and 13th of January, 2021. Here is our pick for the top nine questions we got.

By taking some of the core concepts of defi and turning them into easy-to-access mini-games, we are aiming to lower the bar of complexity that is linked with most DeFi systems. In this way, we want to achieve two things: make defi mechanics more fun and exciting to existing blockchain users; and draw in a new crowd who isn’t familiar with blockchain tech but may be used to more traditional mobile or gacha games and who want to earn real rewards with their time spent playing.

Once you unlock the potential to earn while you play, it will draw in a lot of new users who will help spread crypto adoption to previously unimagined heights!

2. What do you think about other projects with NFT concepts? Does Seascape Network currently have plans to cooperate with other NFT projects?

Another excellent question. We don’t see any of these groups as our competitors, but rather partners or potential partners. We are currently working with Cocos. We are using their game engine, and we used to collaborate with them and built some things on their chain Cocos-BCS. We would love the opportunity to work with Enjin or Decentraland as well if the opportunity arises. There’s a lot of room for growth in the future.

3. Seascape will allow users and Game developers to create their own in-game coins, so will this be possible with the CROWN tokens?

Player-Created-Coins will be a way for users and game developers to create their own in-game currencies that can then be distributed to players or allies within contained ecosystems. Working in a similar way as MakerDAO and the DAI stablecoin, each PCC will be backed by Crowns, and redeemable at any time, but will also grant community members the freedom to create a coin with their own supply amount that can be used in various purposes.

4. Auditing plays an important intermediary role in the development of DeFi projects. What audit methods has Seascape Network applied in project development?

Great question. We got the Certik Foundation to analyze our Crowns and our smart contracts and they have all returned not only with a clean bill of health, but our top programmer, Medet Ahmetson, was even highly praised by them as having some of the cleanest code they’ve ever seen. We will soon be featured on some of their media, where we will discuss a bit more about our code and the auditing process. Stay on the lookout for information.

5. Is it possible to stake earned NFT rewards and earn more from staking them?

The longer you stake them, the more you will earn, so this is a solid strategy if you want to maximize your return per NFT, but if the token is staked in the game to earn CWS it will have to be burned when claiming. That said, if you prefer collecting the NFT itself that is definitely an option you can take. We will also implement different ways of earning for other NFT holders in the future for users like you who want to hold on to their NFTs while still earning an income!

6. What are your top 3 things for priorities in 2021?

The 3 priorities for 2021 are as follows: 1. Launch the token + platform 2. Release the DeFi games and developer tools so that other games can easily implement Defi. 3. Fully build out the protocol and migrate to Polkadot and other L2 solutions. This, we believe, will guarantee the success and sustainability of the Seascape Network.

7. Is Seascape fully decentralized? How do you avoid being centralized further?

The Seascape Network is being developed with decentralization in mind, but game development is tricky and there are lots of pitfalls that need to be avoided, meaning we need to be able to resolve these issues internally during the initial stages before releasing everything to the community. The transition to a fully decentralized gaming ecosystem platform will begin on day 1 of our launch, with holders being direct stakeholders in the success of the platform, and rewarded for this participation.

That said, the transition will take a lot of time, as we need to ensure that each step happens smoothly and with successful handovers of governance that don’t interfere with the profitability of the user, game dev, or token owners!

8. What is the role of ICE Viaduct in the Seascape platform?

Since we are also developing on Polkadot, we need a Bridge that serves to link with other chains and achieve cross chain function, we call it ICE Viaduct. The viaduct serves as the Seascape platform’s connection to the outside world. It will be able to connect to a variety of Polkadot parachains, as well other established protocols such as Ethereum, Algorand, and more. By letting our games and the store platform work as a hub connected to the entire decentralized economy, we do not lock users in and allow them to migrate their assets however they wish. This is one of our long term goals, and it will take time to really achieve a functional version. But we like to invite all users to grow and enjoy this exploring journey together!

9. Can we add an existing game into your platform or do we need to develop according to the needs of your system?

We are happy to have game designers and developers join our platform. In the short term, we can help devs implement $Crowns payment method into their games and grow users and revenue together with us. This year, we will provide DeFi gameplay SDK, so devs can easily use it to add DeFi gameplay into their games. So, yes, it could be an existing game, and we will help you to implement it with Crypto payment and DeFi gameplay SDK.

We love participating in these AMAs, meeting with fans and interested parties, and keeping up with the hype. Don’t forget to follow us on social media and stay tuned!
