Below are some main points of this AMA:
Question for Part 1- Project overview
Question 1: First, please make a brief introduction of Dragon Mainland.
Dragon Mainland.:Dragon Mainland is a brand new “play to earn” GameFi platform. It’s a fully immersive 3D encrypted NFT collectibles game. It’s the intersection of gaming + DeFi + NFTs in a Dragon Ecosystem.
The idea for Dragon Mainland came from How to Train your Dragon. Dragons have long captivated both Eastern and Western cultures.
Most recently with movies and TV shows like Avatar, Game of Thrones, Lord of the Rings and many others.
We feel like the idea of breeding, raising and fighting Dragons 🐉 will be very engaging and fun for gamers.
It’s turn based strategy card game where there are 5 different types of Dragons. The Dragons have different attributes that differentiate them from each other. Some have more speed and other are smarter and some are better at defense.
There are also 3 levels of skills for each attribute that can be upgraded during the game play. There are both PvE and PvP to keep things interesting. There are 150 different cards so the potential outcomes are vast.
There’s a dual token ecosystem with DMS being the ecosystem token and DMP being the utility token used for many activities like breeding. Players can earn DMP by completing daily tasks and in through battling and combat.
We aim to create a fully decentralized community or a DAO . The community will be able to validate all transactions and activities inside the game which provides a level playing field for everyone.
Question 2:Currently most investors only care about profits at the moment but ignore the long-term benefits. So can you give them some advice why they should buy and hold this token in the long term?
Dragon Mainland.:We think creating deflationary token ecosystems is the best way to create long term value for the token and the ecosystem. There is a fixed max supply of 1 billion DMS.
We have put several mechanisms to make sure our DMS supply is deflationary to protect the it’s value.
The advantage of holding DMS is that if you stake your tokens and participate in our DeFi opportunities you will earn more DMS!
Next, 50% of the marketplace revenue will be used to buyback DMS and permanently freeze it. This means that there will be buy pressure from gameplay on a daily basis and the overall available token supply will continue to decrease on a daily basis.
The more people play the game the more DMS tokens that will come off the market. This in itself should drive investors to stake the token and hold it AGAIN decreasing the available supply on the market.
We strongly believe this deflationary model will create long term value for our holders and we believe in rewarding our token holders for staking their tokens to earn bigger returns.
We feel it’s a very strong model and one that aligns the incentives of the players, investors, and the ecosystem.
Question 3:How important is the community to Your project? and How can we collaborate or help share token for the development of the project?
Dragon Mainland.:Community is everything! Without a strong community nothing good can happen. We plan to focus heavily on Southeast Asia, Latin America, and the Middle East where the play to earn gaming markets are strong.
We hope to partner with the likes of YGG and other similar gaming guilds or groups that will help accelerate user growth.
There will be a huge focus on working with different community leaders to build telegram groups and the like in different languages so there support and a communal network.
We are already working with KOLs and groups to make sure we provide all the resources necessary to support the communities in every region.
How we can collaborate together is to get your community to get involved early to participate in the early growth of the game. There are many opportunities for monetary rewards for players and for them buy and stake tokens to earn even more. This should lead to the biggest rewards for both your community and ours.
We have big plans and those that get involved early tend to make the most money playing the game and see the biggest value gains in the NFT in game assets.
Questions for Part 2 - Pre-collected questions from Twitter:
Question 1:Dragon Mainland is NFT gaming, but really for users should not be important the quantity, but the quality, I mean, how valuable are the NFT that we can acquire in your game, what elements give them a real value that allows them to be easy to market in the NFT market? @Lidiamga
Dragon Mainland.:Great question! For our game specifically the quality of the NFTs provide the best long term value from a Play to Earn perspective.
One thing we are trying to avoid is the proliferation of too many NFTs inside our ecosystem so we’ve instituted a “Survival of the Fittest” or meritocracy based approach where stronger dragons can swallow or eat the weaker ones.
What this means is that stronger dragons will be more highly sought after and valued. They will be able to generate higher earnings as a result because they will have inherent strength advantages.
In addition, there are many different NFTs in Dragon Mainland: Dragon Eggs/Dragon/Dragon Skulls
- Firstly, let us talk about the Dragon Eggs. There are only 10,000 Genesis Dragon Eggs and each one is different. So they are rare very much and have much value.
-Secondly, Dragons. As stated above Inferior dragons will be swallowed in the game which avoid the flood of dragons in the market. Just like dragon eggs, each one is different, so each dragon will have a very high value.
-Thirdly: There are three levels of skulls in the game. Low-level skulls can be synthesized to form a higher one. There is a probability of failure during the synthesis process, which gives a strong application scenario for the consumption of skulls NFT.
Question 2:How will DrgonMainland standout from the digital world and how your innovation will attract people to buy/invest considering people already invested a lot of their money in other NFTs marketplaces? Also, are we going to expect a more exciting Play to Earn model? @PiloT9804
Dragon Mainland.:A quick distinction to make is that we are a GameFi platform with an NFT marketplace. We are not trying to compete with the traditional NFT marketplaces.
Our NFTs are focused on ownership of in-game assets. As such, we don’t see any need to worry about the saturation of mainstream NFT marketplaces. We are solely focused on our GameFi platform in which all of our NFTs are used to earn in game token rewards.
Here’s more about what we feel like our competitive advantages are:
1. Our team’s experience with our primary presence in Dubai and the Middle East. We have significant KOLs and access to gamers in these regions. This will allow us to attract users quickly and easily.
2. Our fully immersive 3D rich gameplay experience. A lot of the early blockchain games are very slow and clunky. They’re just not engaging. Our has a ton of strategy and many different variables so players won’t get bored easily.
3. Our tokenomics structure where we address the inflation issues plagued by many other ICOs in 2017-18 and Axie Infinity with the ever increasing amount of Axies. DMS has a very strong Token Burn model which will cause massive token deflation which should be great for those that hold and stake the tokens.
Also, weak Dragons can be swallowed and eaten thus “survival of the fittest” where it’s more of a meritocracy. This will also keep the number of Dragons in check.
Our significant achievements to date are seeing the “play to earn” and GameFi trend early and building a fully functional GameFi platform over the past year.
A lot of competition is coming to the space since Axie’s massive token rise began in July. We started way before that and feel fortunate to be one of the top new games coming to the space.
It’s not easy to build a game like this in such a short amount of time.
Our community is strong as well with 40k on Twitter and 64 on Telegram. We also have some strong partnerships in the works soon.
Question 3:Please let me know how I can earn $DMS tokens in DrgonMainland, how many battle modes there are in the game. In which way the revenue would be generated to sustain the project's development, and what plans do you have to attract more users in Southeast Asian market? @Huyn35818182
Dragon Mainland.:There are multiple ways to earn DMS in DrgonMainland. DMS holders can earn DMS tokens by pledging/staking their tokens, playing the game, providing liquidity, and participating in key governance votes.
DrgonMainland has four battle modes: single player PVP, multiplayer PVP, single player PVE and multiplayer PVE.
Dragon Mainland’s game props as well as tokens are designed with deflationary metrics.
Earning while playing is also the core of DrgonMainland, which can meet the needs of all kinds of users in Southeast Asia with a very low threshold.
We are also working with several influencers and KOLs in Southern Asia to help promote the game and to help players learn more about how to play. The Southern Asia market is a very strong focus and will get a lot of support from our broader team and community.
Question 4:You have 5 types of dragon which are “Fire dragon, Water dragon, Rock dragon, Storm dragon and Thunder dragon. What are the basic attributes of each dragon and what features do they have? How will users obtain each dragon and how will they improve their computing power? @PKragak
A little more about the specifics:
Health - It has an impact on the dragon's HP value.
Attack - Card damage is affected by an additional bonus value.
Defense-The extra reduction value that has an effect on the card's damage.
Speed - Has an impact on the dragon's action sequence and the chance of evading critical hits.
Life force-Affects the dragon's capacity to activate several skills continuously and the likelihood of critical strikes, as well as the likelihood of entering a near-death state and the amount of continuous rounds.
The combat effectiveness of each dragon determines the computing power. You will be rewarded with extra tokens if you can supply more computing power.
Users can obtain Dragons by purchasing Genesis Dragon Eggs and incubating them until the hatch into Dragons. They can buy Dragons in our Marketplace. And, lastly they can breed dragons.
Those are all the ways they can acquire Dragons to play the game.
Question 5:Where do you see Drangon Mainland in a year or two from now? Please share with us your plan to expand locally as well as globally. Do you have a good marketing team, or enough financial resources to achieve your goals in the years to come? @tony_binex
Dragon Mainland.:In one to two years we see Dragon Mainland as one of the top GameFi platforms in the space.
We’ve spent the past year in development of the game itself and we are just getting started. This is just the first release of the game. We have plans on our roadmap for version two and three coming over the next few years with many upgrades.
We have also put a big focus on designing a token ecosystem to be deflationary to preserve the value of the ecosystem token itself and the ecosystem. We think a strong healthy financial ecosystem contributes to long term success.
The target market for Dragon Mainland is focused mainly on the Middle East and Southeast Asia, and we have abundant local resources in each geographic location.
We have our operations team in Dubai which means that we will enjoy local policy support while also having various local resources. Under the premise that there is no lag in progress caused by cultural barriers.
In addition, our Dubai team has experience running a dozen games in the Middle East targeting both the local and Asian markets.
We have also established great relationships with local KOLs. At present, the size of our community large and we expect tremendous growth building from a very strong foundation.
PART 3: BEST LIVE QUESTIONS CRYPTOFAMILY GROUP
Question 1:AUDIT play an IMPORTANT role in enhancing the stability of any PROJECT. Do you have AUDIT CERTIFICATES . Or are you working to AUDIT your project to make it more secure and reliable?
Dragon Mainland.:Platform security is of the utmost importance and it’s a huge focus for us!
Hacking is always a concern and we take cyber security very seriously. To protect the project we are doing lots of penetration testing. We are also auditing all the smart contracts, hiring hacking groups to try to break in, and using FileCoin and IPFS a to protect the NFTs. Again, all smart contracts will audited and we will make available the certificates of these audits.
To protect the NFT’s using FileCoin and IPFS provides a massive advantage because of the way they use content addressing. This ensures that if a breach did happen all the NFTs should be protected. This creates a truly decentralized solution to manage this problem.
Question 2:When will your tokens be listed on the exchange and which exchanges do you plan to list on in the future
Dragon Mainland.:Here’s our tentative timeline for the next few months:
October 15: Genesis dragon egg sale
TBD - token sale/IDO
November 15: Marketplace online trading, breeding, pledge/staking mining function
November 25: online blind box, dragon breeding play
December 1: PVP,PVE online game
Question 3:Is your project only for elite investors, what about others with small funds, is it open to everyone?
Dragon Mainland.:Our GameFi platform is for all crypto skill levels beginners to advanced. It’s more of a game and you won’t really even know you’re using crypto.
We are definitely targeting the mass market and as such we need to make it as easy and user friendly as possible to do so.
There’s no way to gain massive user adoption if it’s only for super experienced crypto veterans and elites.
Outside of the game itself there will be tons of tutorials, support groups, YouTube videos in many different languages to help make it as easy as possible to learn every aspect of the game.
Question 4:Can you share to us your tokenomics? How much is the total and circulation supply of your tokens? Will there be buy back system or token burning in the future?
Dragon Mainland.:We have a dual token model where DMS is the ecosystem and governance token and DMP is the utility and breeding token.
The total supply of DMS is 1,000,000,000 and no additional DMS will be issued.
The full release will take place over 5 years or 60 months.
Mining Rewards 45%，
Foundation Reserve 15%，
Token Sale 15%
Team, Advisor, and mining reward tokens are locked and released monthly in equal increments over the 60 months.
There is a fixed max supply of DMS but we have several mechanisms to make sure it’s deflationary to protect the value of it over the long term.
DMP is the utility token issued and used by Dragon Mainland. There will be no upper limit on the total supply of DMP, and the distribution method will be as a reward for users after passing the level during the game.
Question 5:What is the most ambitious goal of your project? Could share with us any Upcoming Updates?
Dragon Mainland.:Our ambitions are to become the top “Play to Earn” game with the most users, highest payouts, and the most valuable ecosystem.
We believe our team has the knowledge, skills, and experience to achieve these goals. Combine all that with a deflationary token ecosystem and a fully immersive 3D rich gaming experience and we think that’s the perfect recipe for tremendous success!
In terms of numbers we’d like to hit 1 million users in the first 4-6 months from launch and 3 million in the first year.
