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 ❤️ We are pleased to announce the AMA with DeFly Ball! Today our guest is @Murray_DFLY.
Andrés M. | Satoshi Club: @Murray_DFLY, welcome to Satoshi Club!
Murray: Hi there, thanks for inviting me. Hope everyone is doing great.
Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club: Nice to e-meet you! We are really excited about the upcoming AMA with you 😁 Thanks for joining 😊
Murray: I am glad to attend this AMA. Let's start with the AMA everyone is waiting for.
Andrés M. | Satoshi Club: We are glad to have you here. Of course, let’s proceed! 😃
Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club: Let’s start! Introduce yourself, please. How did you get involved in crypto and DeFly Ball? Please tell us about your position in DeFly Ball 😊
Murray: I’m Murray Marderosian — CEO of DeFly Ball. I have been in the blockchain field for more than 5 years and also working as a business analyst in public and permissioned blockchain projects in the crypto industry. Now I’m working on this project to make the dream come true!
Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club: Great background for great business 👌
Andrés M. | Satoshi Club: That’s the way to reach the dreams, crypto is becoming part of the common life.
Murray: Yes, everyone’s dream.
Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club: Give us a brief introduction to the project. What is the essence of DeFly Ball?
Murray: DeFly Ball is the first-ever FlyBall dogs metaverse racing game on BSC! We proudly introduce DeFly Ball, a virtual NFT-based play-to-earn game. It is an amazing, captivating real-world competition transformed into a virtual world where users can own, train, feed, and trade their Super Dogs.
DeFly Ball is a journey of dogs that train to become race-ready athletic. The reason for the name of this play-to-earn platform is DeFly collectibles. Users can collect non-fungible tokens (NFTs) which they can sell, create or rent on DeFly Marketplace. We are sure that your journey as a DeFly user is going to be riveting and rewarding.
Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club: Indeed 😊 Also, we would like to know more about your team. Who is on the project team core?
Murray: The team is an essential part of the project, so we have an energetic managing and developing team for DeFly Ball. We can proudly say that our team is one of the best in the crypto industry. They have been working on a variety of projects, including gaming and Dapps projects. Our team has energetic lead developers named Dustin Holguin and M. Abdullah, that have worked on many projects in the crypto industry, including blockchain. Trevor Jung is an experienced business developer of DeFly Ball. For more details regarding the team of DeFly Ball, please visit https://deflyball.com/#team.
Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club: Thanks for sharing. It’s a really amazing dream team 🤩
Andrés M. | Satoshi Club: Interesting concept, do you implement virtual reality? Btw, for how long have been you developing the project?
Murray: Thanks, right now we are going with the 3D model concept to give the users a more detailed experience of the use of gameplay. We have started working on the initial concept in the middle of quarter 2. Our team is working hard, day and night, to bring the best product to its community.
Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club: Yes, and you are making a very high-quality product 😁👏👏👏
Andrés M. | Satoshi Club: Congratulations to your team, you have created an innovative and strong project 👏
Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club: Thanks for the great introduction, we have several questions which were selected for the 1st part. Ready to start?
Murray: Yes sure!
Q1 from Telegram user @chinyere2020:
There are various types/categories of Super Dogs Characters in DeFly Ball. They include: “Elite”, “Legendary”, “Exclusive”, and “Sprinters”.
Can you list some examples of dog characters that are in each of these categories? What are the specific features of each of the categories of Super Dogs Characters in DeFly Ball?
“After they perform heavy training, feed your dogs with nutritious food that will boost their motivation and strength”. Can you explain how users/players can feed their dogs? Are there specific foods for certain purposes or certain categories of Super Dog Characters?
Murray: There is a total of 10 Dog Breeds in the game initially and we will be introducing more interesting characters in the DeFly Ball game.
There are 4 rarity levels of Super Dogs:
- Elite: 2
- Legendary: 3
- Exclusive: 4
- Sprinters: 5
The key attributes/features of the Super Dogs Characters are the following:
- Training level
There are 4 different training zones and each has a certain level. Completing each training session requires some energy level for the super dogs to upgrade their skills and other features mentioned above. Food kits and other energy booster kits will be available on the marketplace for users to buy with DEFLY tokens.
For the last part of the question, currently, we have 5 food kits available and more will be introduced soon. Food kits will be used for a certain feature of the dog, e.g. Jarvis: to increase stamina.
To know more about the food kits and how to use them, visit our medium channel shared below: https://deflyball.medium.com/.
Andrés M. | Satoshi Club: Thanks for the complete answer, ready for the next one?
Q2 from Telegram user @Pavel_Jarosh:
A specific feature that is implemented by DeFly Ball is the NFT renting system. Please explain how it works and what advantages does it bring to those who would like to benefit from it? Could you also compare the pros and cons between owing and renting NFT on DeFly Ball?
Murray: The concept of renting NFT will be launched by DeFly Ball for the first time. So a short idea about NFT renting is the process of renting an NFT for a specified period. A tenant can rent an NFT by negotiating a suitable amount with the NFT owner and then returning the rented NFT to the owner after a specified time. It is a smart way of taking advantage of the DeFly NFT Marketplace.
The advantage of renting an NFT is that if a user wants to play a game with an elite dog character and can’t afford to buy the character, he can rent it from any other seller from the marketplace for a certain time period and get benefits from well trained and high-level characters.
Using these characters, users can earn rewards and give the rented NFT back to its original user.
A disadvantage is that if you have rented your NFT, you won’t be able to use that for a defined time period. The owner has to provide the authentication credentials to the tenant which risks the credibility of NFT.
Here’s a detailed guide about NFT renting on the marketplace shared to clear all the queries from the questions: https://bit.ly/3mVRVhw.
Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club: Thanks for your great answers!
Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club: This is a great guide, I think Pavel can easily figure it out 😁
Andrés M. | Satoshi Club: Satoshiclubbers, don’t forget to check the guide👀
Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club: Ready to proceed to the next question? 😊
Murray: Yes sure.
Q3 from Telegram user @JesusFre1tes:
DeFly Ball has a total supply of 100,000,000 DEFLY tokens, a considerably high amount. We have seen cases of projects failing because they lack an efficient token buyback or burning system or a poorly proposed inflationary model. In the case of DeFly Ball, what decentralized economic strategies have you created to avoid the depreciation of your token over time? Is your token inflationary or deflationary? Does it have an embedded buyback or burn mechanism? What do you have to comment on this topic?
Murray: Another good question.
Our team is working to create an efficient burning system, as we know that we have a high amount of total supply for the DeFly Ball token. We have allocated some % for burning and buybacks from the total supply. Tokens will also be distributed while playing games in terms of incentives and rewards.
More details on this will be shared soon.
Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club: Thank you very much for the answers and clarifications 😊
Murray: The future plan is to add more dog-related games into the system. A complete dogverse for the users and other interesting features will be announced.
Andrés M. | Satoshi Club: Could you share with us more details about tokenomics? The current market cap for example.
Murray: Here is the link to token metrics: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1E3ueLIjLfwQ1otBq7c7KP3352O324SHj/view?usp=sharing
Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club: Great 👌 Let’s proceed with the next question 😊
Q4 from Telegram user @yellowchamp:
In the first quarter of 2022, DeFly Ball will have its token staking and reward system and plans on collaborating with some gaming firms. So, could you share an advance overview of your token staking and reward system? What will be the highest APY offering of your staking program? Considering that staking is so common, how would staking in DeFly Ball give a better income for stakes? How is your reward system implemented and what will be its mechanism? As you plan to collaborate with some gaming firms, can you tell us a hint on what gaming platforms you plan to partner with and why? Any advantages you see for the chosen gaming platforms you plan to collaborate with?
Murray: Another very good question. As expected, the token staking and reward system will be introduced to the users after TGE. The main concept is to get rewards in terms of gems and points as a passive income. Users will get different rewards stacking DEFLY tokens: Food Kits, Tickets for Tournaments, Gems, Super Dog Characters, and other in-game items. There will be some time frame (lockups) to stake tokens. For more details stay tuned on our announcement channels.
Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club: Thanks!
Andrés M. | Satoshi Club: Have you established the APY for staking?
Murray: Not at the moment.
Andrés M. | Satoshi Club: Got it, so please share with us your roadmap. Which dog races are you planning to implement?
Murray: Yes sure, there are 3 modes of gameplay in our game:
We will be starting with the Bot and the Face-off mode first and introducing different levels in these 2 modes.
To check our road map here is the link to our deck: https://bit.ly/3mTcgE1
Andrés M. | Satoshi Club: Let’s check it Satoshiclubbers, a lot of interesting info there!
Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club: Thanks for sharing 😊
Andrés M. | Satoshi Club: Well, I think we are ready to proceed with the 5th question.
Q5 from Telegram user @onlyjahshlp:
In DeFly Ball, I noticed that three referees are appointed to three different positions, in order to maintain check and balance throughout the game, Sir Hagrid, Sir Mark, and Sir Humphrey. Can you tell us more about their position in the game? What are the other responsibilities of these referees? What qualify these people to become a referee? Who is the highest among the referees or are they in the same team?
Murray: All the referees are on the same level and each has been given the role to evaluate according to the game rules. Sir Hagrid will be on the duty to check if the super dogs’ jumps are fine and up to the standard. Also, Sir Mark will be checking the ball picking from the box. And Sir Humphrey is on the duty to announce the results of the winners of the rounds.
Andrés M. | Satoshi Club: Btw, is there another way to join the project? I mean, do you have any ambassador programs to attract new members?
Murray: If you are talking about the referral system, it’s not active yet.
No, we don’t have an ambassador program right now, but we can do this in the near future.
Andrés M. | Satoshi Club: Gotcha, thanks for the clarification 😃
Q6 from Telegram user @Lena_V10:
Something that caught my attention is the Food Pantry of your game. Can you explain to us what is it? What is its role in your game? Will there be any additional fees before entering the Food Pantry? Will the Food Pantry also come under your metaverse application or will there be any separate section in your marketplace to purchase the products? Does each food have a separate potential or function? Since each dog has its own skills, will there be any separate food for each dog to make them more powerful? Or any food is applicable for any dog to heal? Lastly, could you please clarify for us, are there any additional requirements for purchasing the food products in the Food Pantry? Or we can just purchase the food products with your native token?
Murray: Food Pantry is the key part of the DeFly Ball game as it evolves the feeding of dogs. After each training session, dogs need some food intake to maintain their levels. There are different Food Kits for maintaining different food levels.
Yes, Food Pantry will be part of dogsverse and each Food Kit comes with separate skills and powers to increase the levels of Characters.
Initially, users can buy the Food Kits from the marketplace using the native token, DEFLY. We have in our plan to integrate more ways to buy Characters, Food Kits, and other in-game items.
Here’s a detailed article on Food Kits and the powers they give to Superdogs: https://bit.ly/3kinnF0
Andrés M. | Satoshi Club: We are glad to know you have every aspect doxxed and explained in detailed guides 👏
