Jonah 🏅🎹 | Satoshi Club : Q1 from Telegram User @victorogb
Late last month, precisely December 29th 2021, PlayDapp released a vital publication to signal the Grand opening of its “PlayDapp Land” in the social platform Roblox. As stated, land users can participate in your connected NFT event by purchasing an Open Pass and Redeeming a code. Understanding the relevance of this singular event, I would love it if you could elaborate further, may we know the significant connection between PlayDapp and Roblox, and since this will be a connected NFT event, are there participatory requirements asides the Open Passes? Finally, can you briefly elaborate on some of the fun activities, operations and rewards open to all participants and PlayDapp Land owners?
PlayDapp_Ryan Chown: For clarity. PlayDapp Land in its current form is an experience-based social space. Which will grow with the help of the community.
Currently PlayDapp Land functions as a social metaverse area. Where you can experience related events and activities. With the purchase of an Open Pass, special PlayDapp items can be earned.
We see Roblox as a great hub for bringing together the PlayDapp ecosystem. One that can give you a rewarding experience in and of itself as well as also be a link point for your wider PlayDapp ecosystem participation.
Specifically, to engage in the PlayDpp land event, all you need to do is complete the missions in-game, then connect to https://market.matic.playdapp.com/ which acts as the hub for all things you do in the PlayDapp ecosystem. As PlayDapp Land expands we’ll see new connections and uses across the PlyDapp ecosystem.
Jonah 🏅🎹 | Satoshi Club: So NFT’ can be merged on PlayDapp?
PlayDapp_Ryan Chown: Exactly. If you have the right combinations you can bring your collection into higher versions. Or, as of right now you can take part in Merge events, where you have the chance to take a smaller number of NFT into a higher grade NFT.
Jonah 🏅🎹 | Satoshi Club: An Awesome opportunity for your Players
Jonah 🏅🎹 | Satoshi Club: Q2 from Telegram User @Emidm28
I read the announcement that ‘PlayDapp’ (Symbol, PLA) was listed on Binance, the world’s largest cryptocurrency exchange, on November 23rd. This is a magnificent achievement following the listing of Coinbase in August. Congratulations! Tell us what changes have you noticed after these listings in two large and well-known exchanges? Many projects dream of listing their token on Binance. How was this process for you? Did you face any challenges during this process? Have you seen a positive impact on PlayDapp’s economy after these listings? After this, what are you currently focusing on? Using your own words, what does it mean for the entire team behind PlayDapp to be listed on Binance?
PlayDapp_Ryan Chown: Binance listing is a fantastic achievement, and it gives us that “Binance legitimacy”. For PlayDapp the changes are more about being recognized for the work we’ve been putting in.
Certainly, it helped with the economy of PLA. but we focus on the core, the product, prices going up is great but it all needs a solid product underneath
For us now, the focus is on expanding out our work with partners and traditional developers.
Jonah 🏅🎹 | Satoshi Club
So true the focus of the Team should be on building a Solid product
PlayDapp_Ryan Chown: We’re lucky now as we have all the building blocks, including partnerships with people like Samsung
Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club: What other exchanges do you plan? and where can we buy a token?
PlayDapp_Ryan Chown: Right now, PLA is on Upbit, Crypto.com Binance, Uniswap, quickswapp plus some others
Jonah 🏅🎹 | Satoshi Club: So many options here.
PlayDapp_Ryan Chown: Yep, we aim to make onboarding as easy as possible
Jonah 🏅🎹 | Satoshi Club: Q3 from Telegram User @JesusFre1tes
Like many other gaming platforms, PlayDapp has a matchmaking system for its PvP. But many of the existing systems are not fair so users get disappointed with the game and abandon it. So what is the PvP MATCHMING SYSTEM that PlayDapp has adapted to its platform to create a fairer system for all players and provide an equal chance for everyone to win?
PlayDapp_Ryan Chown: As a Gamer this question really hits home. Doubly so as Along with the Gods has PVP P2E. For PlayDapp, each game itself has its own PVP structure, where P2E is layered on top.
AWTG as an example has matchmaking that allows for targeted PVP against higher ranking players, to let you equal the score, or to help you climb the ranks faster
Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club: This is quite an interesting and unique find.
PlayDapp_Ryan Chown: As more games deploy the PLayDapp SDK they can set the PVP rules and systems that suit their game.
Jonah 🏅🎹 | Satoshi Club: You have a ranking for all your players?
PlayDapp_Ryan Chown: PVP is open to all that play, however for earning you have to rank in the top 500, and stake PlayDapp Town NFT.
As the player base grows more servers will open allowing more players and more chances to get into that top 500. We see some really good competition from players, real thrills as they eek into the top spots right at the deadline
Jonah 🏅🎹 | Satoshi Club: Btw How do players get to stake the PlayDapp Town NFT?
PlayDapp_Ryan Chown: So, from the game, we have what we call Item Manager, where players can manage their NFT, those created by the game and those for P2E.
Jonah 🏅🎹 | Satoshi Club: Great so they do so in the Item Manager..
PlayDapp_Ryan Chown: And the best thing is Item Manager can be applied to any traditional Game.
Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club: Oh. Thanks for sharing
PlayDapp_Ryan Chown: The whole app is proof of the PlayDapp mission and activity
Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club: you thought out the details perfectly
Jonah 🏅🎹 | Satoshi Club: Q5 From Telegram User @iceVermithraxx
PlayDapp is a dApp game portal that provides C2C Marketplace and Gamers can also trade their characters and items in the C2C marketplace in addition to increasing the value of the NFT by leveling up, strengthening, and amalgamating them. Can you explain more on the features which C2C marketplace will offer to users, can you elaborate on NFTs in PlayDapp and their usecases? how can users amalgamate, strengthen and level up their NFT inorder to increase its value? What are other factors which affect value of NFT and other items in C2C marketplace?
PlayDapp_Ryan Chown: So on a base level you can think of PlayDapp NFT as entry tickets to experiences. PlayDapp’s Merge and amalgamation can be seen as a way to bring more utility into the NFT you own.
You can see that running on our marketplace, simply register and check out your details area. https://market.matic.playdapp.com/
Three grades of NFT are in use — for PlayDapp Town, R, SR & SSR, each with 6 character varieties. Combining these allows you to bring them into the next tier, and as they are deployed to different games they give you more experiences or deeper rewards
Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club: Satoshi clubbers, register and check please
Jonah 🏅🎹 | Satoshi Club: what do R, SR, and SSR mean?
PlayDapp_Ryan Chown: It’s a shorthand grading system, popular in a lot of RPG games and other collectible games we see the NFT being collectibles and useable it’s a good way to show the grades.
Part 2 — live questions from the Telegram community
Q1 from Telegram user: Ganga008: Where the user’s can sell their nft ?
And from what did the get by selling nft ? having any platform to buy this ?
PlayDapp_Ryan Chown: PlayDapp runs its own C2C marketplace. PlayDapp.com.Which has both ETH and Polygon versions.
All NFT from our games can be found here as well as select third-party NFTs. Sellers can choose from a range of accepted currencies (ETH, Matic, PLA, WETH, and look to expand as appropriate. And we have plans for rewarding those in the ecosystem who are active
Q2 from Telegram user: ashwini_Crypto: “From pay to win for years to play to earn” in gaming industry.
Wow this change from blockchain gaming is awesome.what do you think about that change ?
PlayDapp_Ryan Chown: As a gamer, I’m super excited by it. I’ve spent a lot of time playing games and moving from one to the next. The idea of gaining rewards for this time that I can take with me or sell on is great. And with PlayDapp’s focus on letting you earn both in P2E and in trade it’s a real game-changer
Q3 from Telegram user: SaritaaL: PlayDapp’s mission is to create a world where digital assets are more valuable and accessible to all, but in order to achieve this it is necessary to have a number of pillars among those, a strong community, strategic partners and a creative and innovative team, then in PlayDapp have these three bases established, tell us a little how you will attract loyal users to the project, what are your plans and strategies to get partners that add value to the project and how experienced and capable is the PlayDapp team?
PlayDapp_Ryan Chown: Our mission is to make digital assets more readily available. To this end, the easiest and intuitive approach would be to leverage apps and services the general public uses on a daily basis.
This is also an area where great third-party relationships are of utmost importance. Through partnerships with Samsung Wallet, Kakao Clayton, and Line Link, we believe that it is a very important turning point to meet the blockchain service needs within apps already in use. Familiar apps from trusted partners is a real game changer to the public’s acceptance of new technology.
In that sense, we’re offering services starting with gaming experiences and tying into the marketplace functions in a seamless manner to facilitate user to user digital goods trading.
Not only are we confident that we can run our vision, but so are our partners, such as Samsung and Line.
By being linked to these recognizable industry giants we know that user trust is established and legitimacy is embedded.
Q6 from Telegram user @Meta_ji: There are lot of NFT Platform’s competing for their place, how can PlayDapp outperform such competition?
PlayDapp_Ryan Chown: I suppose, I would say, that NFTs represent a real chance to apply incredibly interesting use cases and ownership to existing systems and entertainment. For PlayDapp, we’re providing the building blocks for game developers to move into this new world, NFTs provide a crucial linchpin to this.
With our proofs, a C2C NFT marketplace (playdapp.com) interoperable games, CryptoDozer and DozerBird, and our P2E Game Along with the Gods: Knights of the Dawn and NFT management and staking platform; known as Item Manager, PlayDapp has built an ecosystem that can be implemented by developers with minimal outlay and without the need for blockchain knowledge.
PlayDapp’s growth is looking great, having put in the hard work we are now in a position to realize and apply this knowledge and demonstrated ability to the wider gaming world. Recently big players in the game industry have shown signs of moving into blockchain, it’s all positive.
And with the recent Binance listing, we’re really seeing this work pay off
Q7 from Telegram user @Mikeymms: Is your token only on ethereum network ? if so are you guys willing to expand even more on other chains to consider users preferences ??
PlayDapp_Ryan Chown: As a base point, PlayDapp aims to be chain agnostic, which gives us flexibility.
Currently, PLA exists on ethereum and polygon network via Dex and Cex.
We’ve taken a very pragmatic approach to partner and service selection in the past, one that has worked well. Opening opportunities with globally recognized organizations so we’re confident in our decision-making process.
Q8 from Telegram user @Sulyvahn_DS
How does PlayDapp plan to transform non-Crypto game users into blochchain games gamers ?
PlayDapp_Ryan Chown:There’s a strong case to be made for smoothing out hurdles that players of blockchain games face. Right now, things like creating a wallet, acquiring tokens can be a hurdle for players.
PlayDapp seeks to manage this by offering choice and adopting smooth practices and software solutions that players are familiar with. PlayDapp also moves to be as flexible as possible, supporting as wide a variety of solutions as possible, provided they fit our strategic needs.
Q9 from Telegram user @slla1112
Is there a time to play with the gods? If your answer is no, is there a limit to the amount of coins that a user who plays games all day can earn?
PlayDapp_Ryan Chown: We know people want to play games their way.
There is no time limit on Along with the Gods. Daily PLA is 5 PLA per day and weekly PVP PLA is at 2,800 but you can create NFT and trade them as much as you like
Q10 from Telegram user @Nonerlike: What is mean by C2C ? HOW is your NFT market place different than others?
PlayDapp_Ryan Chown: PlayDapp’s Marketplace is Customer to Customer (C2C)
Our biggest differentiator is our curated approach to NFT presentation, If you take COMETH as an example of the work we do with 3rd parties you can see the detailed customization we have applied mostly with a gamer 1st mentality
We know what is important to gamers and how to present this as a best-case
