🏚Venue For AMA: @EPID_Community
💰Reward Pool: 100$

➡️Part 1: Project Introduction.

Q1. Could you briefly about your project?
A:
First of all, Rapture Cash is a project that currently consists of the game Rapture and its core feature of yield farming and NFT market.

For Rapture its not just a game for blockchain players, but a game that could introduce blockchain to millions of players.

Rapture is a first-person shooter video game that utilizes blockchain technology.

In Rapture, as a gamer, you can control militia Androids (mecha-style exoskeletons) and become their pilots. As an earner, you can earn RT tokens by completing quests and campaigns, in which you may get NFT-itized weapon parts and gadget that you can trade on the market.You may also build your own Androids that can be traded freely on NFT marketplace as well.

Q2. What makes the RAPTURE project stand out more than the projects in the same direction at the moment?
A:
What sets this project apart?

We are in a very interesting time period where multiplayer shooting games start trending.

It will be the FIRST First-Person Shooting game that incorporates blockchain technology.

The style can be uniquely identified. The game philosophy is memorable. i.e, we use the bonding between human and militia androids as a central part in the game to connect the users to a “fantasized battlefield”.

The blockchain infrastructure is “hidden” for players who are not interested in the underlying technology. They will use it without seeing complex wallets or long sequences of meaningless text. We want to attract regular players who want to enjoy the gameplay experience. But for those interested in diving deeper into the game, there is a space for blockchain enthusiasts as well. Rich NFT DeFi functionalities as mentioned in this document, among others collateralized NFT and collateral based loans.

The governance model and the DAO aspects are interesting not only to players and investors, but can also be interesting to mainstream media.

Q3. What are the memorable milestones of RAPTURE in the research and development process?
A:
Milestones completed so far:

- Funding over $20M
- Game design completed
- Game production completed
- Smart Contracts completed
- Public Release contract with 2K signed

Coming up soon:

Website: in a few hours

Game: Early access available early December. Official Release on Feb 2022

➡️Part 2: Question From Twitter (5 best questions).

Q1: @MohMdSarah55445
Being a gaming platform what are the games RaptureCash is currently supporting?What type of games are you planning to add in the future?
A:
Rapture is the core product of this project. It is an FPS game deployed on Polygon Network. Rapture is not just a game for blockchain players. But it’s a game that could introduce blockchain to millions of players.

Players can play to earn RT and NFTs in-game that can be traded on the marketplace for cryptocurrencies.

There are currently no plans to add more game to the already complicated game it is for Rapture. The goal for the studio is to improve player experience to the most fulfilling and keep hackers and game exploiters away from Rapture.

Q2: @ktolic11
How will RAPTURE build a thriving community that truly cares and supports the project for a long time, instead of only getting temporary benefits?
A:
There are inherently two aspects that keep users to support the project in the long run. Game appeal and farming incentives.

The game appeal. The team thrives to create a game that’s appealing and immersive to players. Similar to a lot of successful games, Rapture has the element of sociability, customization, and immersion. Players are able to make friends, create a character of their own and have a gaming experience that makes them feel like they’re fighting as the pilots.

On top of that, players can play to earn an income that could potentially support their daily lives. Additionally, long-term farmers of RT are eligible to earn xRT that can be redeemed for exclusive NFTs, which can in turn be traded on the marketplace. The farming incentives will definitely keep users in the long run.

Q3: @CaMapCon1436567
Currently, when the market fluctuates greatly, the data between exchanges changes constantly, leading to conflicts, causing many lagging exchanges to cause investors a headache, so is RAPTURE? And what are the fixes for this problem?
A:
I don’t think there will be conflicts for RT price changes since Polygon Network is known for having fast transactions and data transfer. We also deployed oracles powered by Chainlink to monitor on-chain data for in-game use. Even if there’s drastic change of price for RT, the game will automatically halt the trading function so that rewards earned will not be affected by drastic change at all.

Q4: @MohMdSarah55445
Where did you get the inspiration for this unique project idea? And what influence will we have on the crypto industry due to the project?
A:
By looking at what inspires the game, as well as what similar games are out there, we can see the commercial opportunities.

Here is what the creative designer mentions as inspiration for the game itself, gameplay and art.

Bioshock Series:

Great story-driven shooter game developed by Team 2K Marin.

Minecraft:

Building mechanics, farming and other activities within the game.

Overwatch:

Smooth multiplayer shooter gameplay with socializable feature.

Stardew Valley:

The freedom of choice, and open-ended gameplay.

The Sandbox:

DeFi games with play-to-earn governance tokens.

On the commercial side:

We have observed a great success of creative games, of builder games, of cute games, of farming games, of multiplayer games. Also the ideas for Rapture is prime on the spot with the trends. The Economist explains it like this:

AMID THE economic devastation wrought by covid-19, video games are a rare bright spot. This year, the shares of Electronic Arts and Activision Blizzard, two big games publishers, have risen by 33% and 42%, respectively. Capcom, a Japanese video-game maker, is up by 75%. It is little wonder that the sector is so hot. Video games—especially live multiplayer ones that can be replayed endlessly—are great for staving off boredom. They are an increasingly popular way to connect with friends, too. During the pandemic, some enthusiasts have even used social games such as “Animal Crossing” to stage weddings, concerts and nightly talk shows.

I can see that the crypto space is subtly shifting to another area called play-to-earn since there are remarkable games made on-chain recently both on Ethereum and BSC.

However, Rapture will come out as the First FPS game on blockchain, so I believe there will be even more hype about play-to-earn genres in the crypto space. Even more so for the gaming industry.

Q5: @trumAKALI
The NFTs on your platform are the tool of everything, they can be used for trading, battle and gaming but how versatile they can be? is there a way to improve the NFTs with extra items and get better stats and price or fractionalize them for trading?
A:
There are in-game assets that can be deployed into the game and they can be bought on the marketplace. Among them - militia androids, weapons, gadgets, reinforcement parts, decorations or cosmetic items for the pilot. In addition, platform users can create assets using the NFT creator and monetize their design skills! DeFi capabilities will be added to the in-game assets.

And yes, NFTs can be upgraded and forged to another NFT! For example, you can forge a Rifle with Gadget NFTs such as magazines, foregrips, stocks, and frameworks obtained from the campaigns.

You may also upgrade your militia Androids by changing an anti-tank armor.

And you can also disassemble the weapons to get the parts you wanted, which you might wanna sell on the market by its own.

Or after all, if you want all of those in just a click, you can just buy them on the marketplace. All you need is some research skills and a little bargaining.

➡️Part 3: Free asking (5 best questions)

Q1: @xogmlunroi
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:

2. Every NFT transaction is imposed with a 2-3% tax.
3. Farmers who want to withdraw will have to pay a 10% early withdrawal tax.
4. Revenue generated from purchasing the game and creating pilots(characters)

Q2: @AnnelieseDuvall
What is your plan for global expansion? At present, which market are you focus on, or is it focused on building and growing to gain customers, users and partners?
A:
We will incorporate a variety of languages to the game and the project in the future. We will create more regional groups for the community. We will promote the project on various platforms specific to different nations.

Q3: @tamcosuynghi

A:
View our audit here: https://github.com/Rapturecash/RaptureProtocol/blob/main/Audits/RaptureCash_Audit.pdf

Q5: @ngoctrong7
What do you think is the strongest advantage that this team will lead the market? Otherwise, what are your weaknesses and what are your plans for overcoming them?
A:
The strongest advantage is that Rapture will be the FIRST FPS game on blockchain. And this point also leads to its weakness, skill threshold. Our team thus created a comprehensive tutorial program for new users to FPS game to learn how to play the game. We also created ranking system to better fit for players of different skill level.
