RECAP AMA EPID COMMUNITY X DRAHON MAINLAND

🕖AMA Timing : 13th October 1 PM UTC | 8 PM (GMT +7)
🏚Venue For AMA: @EPID_Community
💰Reward Pool : 100$

Part 1: Project Introduction
Q1: Can you give a brief introduction of what Dragon Mainland is? What is it aiming to do, and what it intends to solve in this industry?
A:
Dragon Mainland is a brand new “play to earn” GameFi platform that’s a fully immersive 3D encrypted NFT collectibles game.

The idea of 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 captivate gamers and is something exciting.

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 involved.

Our vision is create a mutually rewarding GameFi platform where the incentives are aligned for all the stakeholders. We aim to facilitate new economic opportunities in the “play to earn” space.

In terms of what problems we are trying to solve in the industry it’s two fold. In terms of traditional gaming we are moving games from a centralized to decentralized, and allowing full ownership of in-game assets in the form of NFTs.

In relation to blockchain games we are focusing on storing our NFTs on IPFS so that they are protected. We are focusing on building a deflationary token ecosystem with token lockups and burns.

Too much supply of anything eventually causes prices to drop. As such, in addition to trying to keep the ecosystem token supply in check we are trying to bring more value to Dragon Mainland by implementing a meritocracy based model. In DM the stronger dragons can swallow the weaker ones. This should help keep from the proliferation of too many dragons.

Q2: Can you share some of your background and experience? How did you know and get involved in cryptocurrency? What made you/your team decide to found Dragon Mainland?
A:
My quick background is I started my professional career as a stock market trader in the late 1990’s trading Internet stocks. I did very well and started my own hedge fund and ran it up to $300 Million USD at its peak.

Then I was a founder of a Biotechnology company sold to a publicly listed Nasdaq company. Had an organic food and beverage company sold to my former business partner.

Then I was the CEO and Founder of a Blockchain company called GoChain. We successfully raised $15 million USD in our ICO in 2018 and won the Binance community listing vote by the largest margin ever, ticket symbol GO. At GoChain we partnered with several Fortune 500 and public companies like Microsoft, Dish Network, and Enviva. GoChain has primarily turned its focus to Supply Chain with its Chainsparency platform. They also have an NFT platform called Zeromint.

There’s more but I’ve had a very successful corporate background and been active in the blockchain crypto space for the past 6+ years.

In terms of Dragon Mainland we feel like “Play to Earn” GameFi platforms will be the killer app blockchain has been searching for. We think all games going forward will be blockchain based with NFTs and tokenized in-game economies. As such, we made the decision to get in early and start building what we think is the best GameFi platform yet.

Q3: Currently, there are many scam projects that cause investors to lose. So, Why we should choose and trust Dragon Mainland ?
A:
Yes, unfortunately there are a lot of rug pulls and scams and they continue to happen. The majority of those scam projects happen with anonymous teams or are done by people not well known in the Blockchain/Crypto ecosystem.

For Dragon Mainland my name is on the door. I live in Dubai. I’m easy to find. This also isn’t an anonymous project.

You can trust our project because I am well known in the industry. I am the former Co-Founder and CEO of GoChain, ticker symbol GO, listed on Binance. We had a very successful ICO in 2018 and I did many interviews that are online.

My track record with GoChain and in the corporate world is fully visible for everyone to see. My background is easily verifiable, and you can find videos of me on YouTube and articles about me all over Google.

I hope that makes everyone feel a lot more comfortable that I personally have founded another successful Blockchain/Crypto company and have been very visible in the space.

Part 2: Question From Twitter (5 best questions)
Q1: @TiYu06610914
Why do you think we should hold Dragon Mainland tokens? What are the advantages of holding Dragon Mainland tokens? On which exchange is Dragon Mainland already listed and planned to be listed soon?
A:
Dragon Mainland Shards (DMS) is the ecosystem and governance token of the Dragon Mainland. The total supply of DMS is 1,000,000,000 and no additional DMS will be issued.

DMS can be used for: payment (buying dragons or dragon skulls in the marketplace), governance (platform ecosystem governance), staking, liquidity mining, Dragon Raising(dragon breeding, dragon skull absorption, devouring other dragons) and Marketplace dividends.

There is a fixed max supply or DMS but we have several mechanisms to make sure our DMS supply is deflationary to protect the value of it over the long term.

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 in deflationary token ecosystems to create long term value for our holders and we believe in rewarding our token holders that stake 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.

Our token is not yet trading on the market but expect to do an IDO late this month or early next month. Please stay tuned to our Socials for the launch information.

Q2: @MPonngu
How do you intend to raise awareness about your initiative in regions where English is not widely spoken? Do you want to educate many various populations about your project, such as Vietnam, Indonesia, Korea, etc., so that they can easily comprehend and understand it?
A:
Yes, we are focusing a lot of non-English speaking regions so this is a great question. We are already working with KOLs and community leaders in several different regions to create videos and tutorials about how to onboard and play the game.

We are also working with our developers to potentially allow users to choose their language when they sign up and sign in.

This will take some time but catering to non-English speaking populations is one of our highest priorities.

We are also focusing on bringing on partnerships with groups like YGG and other gaming guilds that will support this effort.

The global community is going to be what makes Dragon Mainland successful and we plan to support them as much as possible!

Q3: @SmithieWing
How secure is your platform? Have you audited smart contracts?
- Bug smart deals and no protection from hacking. Which is very important for your platform?
A:
Dragon Mainland's smart contract code is currently being audited by CertiK.

Hacking is always a concern and we take cyber security very seriously. To protect the project we are tons of penetration testing, audit all the smart contracts, hiring hack groups to try to break in, and using FileCoin and IPFS a to protect the NFTs.

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.

Q4: @DepzaiFill
How do you convince Dragon Mainland holders that their investment is secure within your platform? And also your smart Contract has been already audit. Can you tell us more details about the audit? Can anyone access to the locked liquidity pool on pancakeswap?
A:
Similar to the previous answer we are currently having our Smart Contracts audited by CertiK.

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 tons of penetration testing, audit 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 the certificates will be posted publicly.

Q5: @HONGphc50627894
Many investors focus only on the token price in the short term rather than the real value of the project. Can Dragon Mainland share the motivation and benefits for investors in the long term?
A:
You are right lots of projects make big promises and don’t deliver. Our game is 90%+ built and we are in the final phases for launch in early December.

What makes us different is are combining all the aspects of evolution of Blockchain, DeFi, and gaming combined with NFTs and adding in a major portion of knowledge and experience to craft a token economy that provides holders and players aligned incentives.

Deflationary token supplies, staking, along with our revenue aggregator, and play to earn model should give us a big advantage.

And, something I probably haven’t touched on enough is the gameplay and the Fully Immersive 3D graphics of the game itself! It’s highly engaging with lots of strategy and many outcomes that will keep all players coming back.

Combine rich gameplay + an amazing token ecosystem with huge opportunities for income and we think that’s a winning combination.

Part 3: Free asking ($100 for 2 best questions)
Q1: @quanhau
Can you give an overview of your Tokenomics, and the UTILITY of Token?
A:
Dragon Mainland has a dual token model DMP and DMS:

Dragon Miracle Potion (DMP) is the utility token issued by Dragon Mainland. It doesn’t have a fixed total supply. It can only be obtained through game dungeons and completing daily quests. It will be consumed during dragon breeding, dragon bone absorption, and devouring other dragons.

Dragon Mainland Shards (DMS) is the ecosystem and governance token of the Dragon Mainland. 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.

Token Allocation:
Mining Rewards 45%,
Foundation Reserve 15%,
Team 21%,
Advisor 4%,
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 or DMS but we have several mechanisms to make sure our DMS supply is deflationary to protect the value of it over the long term.

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 in deflationary token ecosystems to create long term value for our holders and we believe in rewarding our token holders that stake 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.

Q2: @insimon
Is your project only for elite investors, what about others with small funds, is it open to everyone?
A:
Our GameFi platform is for all crypto skill levels. 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.

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.

Q3: @ylynneast71
Revenue is an important aspect for all projects to survive and maintain the project / company. What is the way to generate profit / revenue of token? What is the income model?
A:
There are several ways to earn:

1. Complete daily tasks - login, play 5 PvE and 10 PvP games and earn Tokens

2. Stake/Pledge DMS to earn more DMS

3. Liquidity Mine by adding liquidity to our DEX for DMS/BNB, DMS/DMP, BNB/DMP pairs

4. Win Ladder Tournaments

5. Win PvP games

6. Breed Dragons and sell them in the marketplace

7. Trade NFTs for a potential profit

Players can earn money by competing in ranked battles (PVP), challenging the environment (PVE), and breeding dragons for sale. Many in-game assets such as the dragon skulls (NFT), DMP, and DMS, can be obtained through playing the game. Tokens can be sold on the dex, and NFTs can be sold on the marketplace.

On the other hand, some people may be interested in passive income by staking and we will be opening a large number pairs for liquidity mining.

There are many many to earn active and passive income!

Q4: @Myongfunk
NFTs is hot trending now, Do you have a play to have NFTs in your platform? If so, can you tell us the plans of your project in NFTs?
A:
NFTs are at the heart of what makes Dragon Mainland special! Gaming prior to Blockchain didn’t allow any of the users to own their property or in game assets. As such, we are super excited to be part of this Blockchain evolution of having an NFT based game.

The Dragons 🐉🐉, Dragon Skulls which allow you to upgrade your Dragons, and the dragon eggs are all NFTs. Early in 2022 we will be launching land and buildings as NFTs as well. They can be bought and sold in the marketplace and they are all stored on chain.

Q5: @vithenaodo
Can you list 1-3 killer features of your project that makes it ahead of competitors? What is the competitive advantanges your platform has that you feel most confident about?
A:
We feel like our competitive advantages are:

1. Our team’s experience with our primary presence in Dubai and South East Asia and China. We have significant KOLs and access developers and 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. Ours 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 ICOs in 2017-18. Axie Infinity also has this problem 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.

4. Timing, we have been building the game for a year and it’s ready for soft launch in October and full launch December 1. We are very early but there is a lot of competition coming in the next year or two. Launching early with significant experience and resources should be very helpful.

5. Our community is strong as well with 68k on Twitter and 74k on Telegram. We also have some strong partnerships in the works coming soon.
