Wolfonaire Chatbox : AMA With Colonize Mars (22nd April, 2021)

Hello! Wolfonaire Family & Crypto Enthusiasts!

We recently hosted an AMA With Colonize Mars on 22nd April, 2021 at 4.00 PM UTC. This session was phenomenal. If you have missed then here is the precious AMA transcript, for those who missed the live session this will enlighten you for sure…

Guest Speaker :

Mr. Hunter Stanchak | Founder, Colonize Mars

(Note: This is the transcription of the event. Please note that the transcript was edited for comprehensibility and coherency, while the content was not changed.)

INTRODUCTION

Hunter : My name is Hunter, I am the founder of the Colonize Mars project. Nice to meet you all!

Colonize Mars is a new collection of digital NFT trading cards on WAX. They tell the story of the progression of a simulated colony for Mars. Our website: https://mars.cards/

The team has grown to include various artists, developers, writers, and even a few aerospace engineers that are advising us on the more technical aspects of building a colony on Mars. We want the simulation to be as realistic as possible 🙂.

Wolf : NFT Is Really Hot Nowadays 🔥… For our members who are not already familiar with the project,can you give us a very high-level overview of what #Colonize Mars is and what competitive edge it brings to the Crypto Universe?

Hunter : Agreed! Our ultimate vision is to create an NFT gaming dApp where players can collect resources, earn in-game currency (Martia Token), and build their own colonies within our 3d interactive map. We plan to release the basic gameplay functionality later this year. A preview of our roadmap is on https://mars.cards/ at the bottom.

Some other unique features:
- I attached an example of one of our cards so you can see the visual style.
- The ownership mechanic of our NFTs via our crafting system
- A realistically- simulated Mars Colony game has never been explored on the blockchain, so if this interests you this is the project for you!
- We have a rapidly growing community (Over 1,500 TG members & 1,400 Twitter followers)

Wolf : Which project is your strongest competitor here in crypto?

Hunter : At this point, it is pretty early days with the projects on the WAX blockchain, so I would encourage everyone to check out and play the other dApps on there to get a sense for what else is out there!

You can find a list on https://all-access.wax.io/

Wolf : How do holders of the #Colonize Mars benefit in the ecosystem? What power within your model do individuals hold? Why is it so attractive and what are the basic requirements to participate?

Hunter : This is an opportunity to get in early on a brand new NFT project that is launching our first mission on April 28th. You will want to start collecting cards now, because once the gaming dApp launches, we plan to reward our early supporters as best as we can 🚀.

To start the colony expansion & design is handled by the core Colonize Mars team, but we intend to give players more and more autonomy within the game as we progress in our roadmap. This is still the very early days of the project.

Here is how you can participate now:
- Purchase NFT Packs in our upcoming sale on April 28th at https://mars.cards/. You’ll need a WAX wallet to participate.
- Open the packs to receive cards that correspond to different vehicles and equipment in the colony.
- Burn / upgrade your cards to get rarer ones. The rarest cards are called ownership cards, which will correspond to a unique vehicle or piece of equipment on our colony map. Only 20 will be available for Mission One, but we will release more in subsequent missions.
- Check our 3d colony map will be on our website that shows the colony on Mars in an aerial view. It will launch on April 29th after our sale window closes. It starts with a small outpost for Mission One, and will continue to expand in future releases.

Wolf : Have you met all your goals in the roadmap till now? And were there any difficulties that you didn’t expect and were not prepared for?

Hunter : We have been fortunate to meet all our deadlines for our April 28th release. It was pretty cool to see our community grow so quickly, we weren’t expecting over 1,500 members in our telegram channel! It is great to see the support though.

We have gotten some great feedback about our art style, and we intend on continuing to build on this past Mission One. We are still in the early stages, Our community has also been really supportive of our direction to become a gaming dApp and we are going to share a more detailed roadmap in the coming weeks!

Wolf : Awesome 👌🆒️🙌… What was your inspiration throughout the journey of Colonize Mars? How has the artistic and creative vision of this project changed throughout its development?

Hunter : We are inspired by a future where humans are multi-planetary, and we think that going to Mars will benefit humanity greatly because of the scientific discoveries we will make, the new inventions that will be created, the inspiration it will provide to younger generations, and the future it will enable for civilization.

We believe our project can play a part in this future by getting more people interested in what it would be like to colonize Mars. This is why our mission with the project is to tell the story of colonizing Mars in an accurate and compelling way so that more people are inspired to become explorers and pioneers of the final frontier.

We started with a deep focus on our artstyle and the story, and we weren’t expecting the overwhelming support on the vision to create a full gaming dApp. We are ramping up the team for this direction and can’t wait to collaborate with our community on bringing a unique and fun experience.

The best way for you guys to support our development is to participate in the upcoming sale 🙂.

Wolf : Elon is really interested in Mars,who knows after Doge he will pick this project,

Hunter : Yes absolutely, we hope he reaches out!

Wolf : It’s Really Futuristic NFT Project 🔥

Now Group Question & Answer Session Began

Q1. 1-Is it possible to make other Legend Cardholder a guaranteed slot in 2nd mission who couldn’t get the limited Ownership(max20) cards and the sketch gives that with a set time frame

Hunter : This is a great set of questions here.

(For those who arent familiar, I have attached an image that shows our crafting system)

It is true that there are only 20 ownership cards available for Mission One, and we plan to release more for Mission Two and beyond.

Here is what our ownership cards look like…So to answer this one:

We probably won’t be able to give a guaranteed slot to people holding legendary cards in future missions, but we will see if there is anything we can do. This is the risk / reward to upgrading, and if you upgrade 3 legendary cards and all ownership cards are taken, you will get a sketch card of the same type:

We are working on futher utilities of cards, and have reached out to R-Planet about staking. Nothing official to announce yet 🙂.

Wow this is an incredibly thoughtful set of questions! Thank you @ProfCelix.

Q2. Will the mechanics of the game be similar to Alien Worlds at all?

Hunter : We think Alien Worlds is a great dApp! Our goal is to create something unique, but still is in line with what the commuity is interested in seeing. We still in the early stages of game development, but our plan is to have a resource mining element & a colony maintenance and expansion element. The gameplay will feel very different than Alien Worlds, however since this is solely about colonizing mars.

Q3. Some kind of these “terrain” nfts available for purchase on this Mission One?
Hunter : Not for Mission One, but we plan on releasing land NFTs as part of Phase 3 in early 2022

Q4. Will it be exclusively Mars themed, or will there be another planets involved?

Hunter : Yes, this will be exclusively Mars themed, and we think it will be pretty unique because of the 3d interactive map element.

Q5. Will there be some combat or rpg oriented gameplay in the future?

Hunter : We want to make this a more realistic simulation focusing on real aerospace tech, so don’t expect aliens or ray guns etc. We would like to explore rpg, but nothing concrete as of yet.

Q6. What is your strategy for building a strong community? Do you agree that the power of the community will lead your project to develop globally? What services do you provide to the community?

Hunter : We have been really thankful to see the support of our commuinity, and intend to be very open & collaborative with our development process as our project progresses. For instance, we are working on our roadmap, and will share it in our telegram channel when it is ready, so people can comment & help us shape what they want to see in the upcoming game.

We are also doing alot of promos & giveaways, and have recieved positive responses about this as well:
Promo sticker drops: https://wax.atomichub.io/drops/colonizemars

Free NFT patch for following us on Twitter (Open for a few more days): https://twitter.com/ColonizeMarsNFT/status/1383814930667761673

Q7. Truly, you’ve done AMA in many telegram groups, so what next, what other way will you make your project more popular?

Hunter : great question! We are doing alot of podcasts in the upcoming week for people to learn more:
Anyobservation -> Watch our interview here:

The Nifty Show -> Tomorrow at 9pm UTC:

Not Another Bitcoin Podcast w/ Kenn Bosak -> April 27th

NFT Live -> April 28th

Join us to learn more and hear the interviews!

Q8. As a community driven project and me a developer am interested in contributing to the project, do you have such programs?

Hunter : Yes! We are looking for EOS Blockchain developers and Front End & Full Stack Engineers to join the team. Please reach out to me on Telegram for more information.

Q9. How will the distribution of packs with cards be organized? Will it be a classic sale on the WAX platform or something else? Will it be possible to sell the cards on the secondary WAX market?

Hunter : We are doing our sale through AtomicHub. On April 28th at 4pm UTC, go to mars.cards and we’ll have a link to purchase packs.

We decided to do a 24-hour sale window & unlimited supply for this time. This is to get around the issue we see in some projects where packs get sold out in seconds and some people don’t get to participate in the fun. The other cool feature is that we are going to pre-mint cards after the sale window closes since we will know the exact amount sold, so everyone gets a chance at low mint cards.

Primary Sale Info
- The sale of packs will start on April 28th at Noon EDT / 4pm UTC and will be open for 24 hours. You can purchase as many packs as you would like during this time.
- Everyone will have a chance at low mints regardless of purchase time within the sale window.
- You will not be able to open your packs until the Unboxing / Crafting Window starts.

Unboxing / Upgrading Info
- Pack opening and card upgrading starts Thursday, April 29th @ 4pm EDT / 8pm UTC.
- The colony map will go live on our website during this time, so everyone can start viewing the colony & ownership leaderboard.

Q10. Can you give us an overview of $ Martia token economics? Is the token designed to rise and fall with the success of the platform, and does it include any scarcity paths such as stake, store, or burn?

Hunter : We don’t have details to share around tokenomics of Martia yet, but we intend to have it incentivize activity that will help expand the colony. Players will be able to earn it in a few different ways, but we are still working out the details before we release our thoughts here 🙂 Stay tuned in our telegram channel!

Q11. Have you discussed with Atomichub/WAX(dot)io regarding the pack opening in terms of trying to combat the issues that other projects have had during their pack openings and releases?

Hunter : We are working directly with AtomicHub on the launch, and they will be hosting pack purchasing and openings on their site. That team has a great track record of past launches and we are hoping for a smooth one as well 🙂

Another thing to mention is that we have decided to have packs only be available for purchase in WAXP token. You can get a wallet and the token here:

https://all-access.wax.io/

I have also attached details about our packs & odds

Now the session ends with lots of thanks to our Guest Speaker…
