RECAP AMA EPID COMMUNITY X SAFERMOON
🗓️ Date: 7th September 3 PM UTC | 10 PM (GMT +7)
🏚Venue For AMA: @EPID_Community
💰Reward Pool: 100$
➡️Part 1: Project Introduction.
Q1: Can you give a brief introduction of what SAFERMOON is? What is it aiming to do, and what it intends to solve in this industry?
SAFERmoon is aiming to solve two problems, in short:
1) people want to do "degen" investing - like with RFI tokens etc - but very often those end up being rugs or scams
2) people want to start their own tokens, but they don't know how to do that or don't have the money to hire a programmer
SAFERmoon came out a few months ago when RFI tokens were just coming out, but were full of scams. We saw projects like safemoon using words like “safe” when in actuality they had a ton of exploits and security holes and abilities for the devs to dump on users, etc. (which we saw they actually did do, several times).
We wanted a way for people to do “degen” ape-ing, but in a safe way. So we thought the best way to do this might be to create an actual launchpad where anyone - me, you, regular folks, members of EPID - can go to our website, click a few buttons, and we’d pop out a token that they could then go market. You wouldn’t need thousands of dollars, or wouldn’t need to find a good programmer. We’d just have a few buttons to press, and you’d have your token.
But the important part is that the token would be verifiably safe, coming out of our launchpad. This launchpad will be launched in a few weeks. The backend code has been written, and we’ve released videos of it already - we’re just doing the frontend now to make it pretty.
Actually this video here (in Vietnamese) explains some of the project very well: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OSWaUwU-6-E
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 SAFERMOON?
Sure! My background originally is in security things. I always loved hacking and breaking into things, then telling people how I did it so they can fix it, since I was a kid.
I started in crypto a decade ago almost (as I mentioned), so close to 10 years in the space now. I have built businesses in real life several times and can manage projects pretty well.
My focus has been on BSC the past year or so, though now I'm venturing out a bit to other chains. But SAFERmoon is built on the BSC chain, which I think is an excellent chain for various reasons.
We founded SAFERmoon as a way to 'give back' to the crypto community and help prevent scams. I put a loooot of money into it, and will never make that money back. But I think the community needs a safe launchpad that anyone can use, and a website where investors can go to see if the project they're thinking of investing in is safe. So we are building it for the community.
Our original motto was "SAFERmoon is like Safemoon - but actually safe" because Safemoon is/was such a nonsense coin full of exploits and holes and bad programming. We evolved that idea from being just a "safe" version of Safemoon/RFI, to now being a place where folks can launch their own tokens, as I mentioned.
Q3: Currently, there are many scam projects that cause investors to lose. So, Why we should choose and trust SAFERMOON?
From a scam perspective, I think people should feel good about SAFERmoon.
First off, the people involved and partner projects are pretty prominent.
Secondly, before launching the token it was audited thoroughly by BSC Gemz.
And third, the project has been around now for almost 6 months, and hasn't been abandoned. It's one of the only RFI focused tokens that has actually stuck around without the founders disappearing, or dumping.
Safermoon.net is the website by the way in case anyone has looked for it and can't find it. :)
➡️Part 2: Question From Twitter (5 best questions).
How do you think with Asia market? Does your team have any plan approach ASEAN which the potential market in crypto, there have many great teams and investors want work and earn money from crypto?
Yeah, it's a good question. We are starting outreach with our Asian friends now actually, for example this AMA, the video I sent earlier, etc. I am in Asia personally all the time (before coronavirus made travel hard) and have many friends across several countries there, so am always looking to expand our audience as much as possible, yep!
For Vietnamese in particular, there is a SAFERmoon Vietnamese channel started just a week ago: https://t.me/SafermoonVietnamese
I see that have almost 25% of the total SAFERmoon supply token is reserved for burning at milestone events. How does this burning strategy affect the price of $SAFERmoon in the market? What impacts that burning brings to your network and the community?
Well, the theory is that with reduced supply, and similar demand, price will benefit from it. This is why so many communities ask for burns to happen, ya know?
But you'll notice that the milestone events are almost all things that the community can help with, such as Tweets getting a certain amount of retweets, Reddit comments, us appearing on a big news media, etc. So there are two benefits to the items in the burn events.
Community is so important for every project. During the time you build safermoon, do you take into account community feedbacks and demands? Do you have any plan to attract more users and community?
Things like this AMA and other marketing we are doing is how we are trying to attract more community. And remember, we are doing this still, 6 months after launch. It's not something we do for a few days and then stop.
We are also working with some celebrity videos to get the word out. I think you guys saw the Ice Cube (rapper) video?
If anyone has seen The Lord of the Rings movie, "Frodo" from it has also made a video haha - let me send through here, one minute
Elijah Wood :-P
Anyway, we do take a lot of comments from community, every day. It's something that is core to how we run things. Hopefully that answers you :)
In the long run, why should we trust and follow you and your project? How do you raise awareness and elimination of the doubts of investors / partners / customers?
Well, I think this goes to the last question just a little bit, but as far as me personally -
I run a few large groups on Telegram, I have been on Binance webinars, spoke at trade shows, and tracked down the scammers who stole the money from StableMagnet, among other things.
CZ follows me on Twitter, and I speak to the CMO of Huobi, Binance, and other top crypto companies often. If I were to rug, they would know where to find me. :-P
Can you please tell me a little more about the SAFERMOON management team and some of their background? Personally, I've seen many projects kicked off with inexperienced team members and some of them not going well due to avoidable mistakes?
Hmm, I think I may have answered this question before, but we are very experienced in the crypto world and also regular business world.
I think one important thing is that we are not trying to make money for us on SAFERmoon. We have done ok for ourselves and don't need SAFERmoon for us to have any wealth. We are trying to do something for the community, so that fewer people get scammed, and the crypto space feels safer.
In my opinion, if the crypto space has less scams, then more people will come into the crypto space (or stay, if they are thinking of leaving). This benefits *everybody* who invests in or believes in crypto, and it makes adoption of the technology much faster.
➡️Part 3: Free asking (5 best questions)
Where can I buy your tokens now. What are your current contracts, and how can I buy them and what are the benefits?
90% of investors focus on token price in the short term instead of finding out the real value of the project. Can you tell us about the incentives and benefits for investors to hold your tokens for long?
You can go to safermoon.net and click the "how to buy" section if you are interested in purchasing.
The incentive to hold for a long time is like most RFI tokens, if you hodl, you get 5% of the "taxes" that other users pay when they sell. So the longer you hold, the more SAFERmoon you get :)

Yes, we got audited before launching, and all new things that we develop we get pre-audited before they go live. You can see here that @bscgemz team audited us https://safermoon.net/audit.pdf
What social network does your community focus on, how do they know about your project? I want to join the community, where can I find it?
Mostly we focus on Twitter. We have hired the CoinTelegraph official promotion marketing team to handle a lot of our marketing. You can see our Twitter here is very active: https://twitter.com/safermoonreal
For a project development first of all main priority is having enough fund. Does your team financially capable to run this project? Do you have enough fund for it's developement Can you tell us that how your project generate the profit?
There is 0 issue with funding. We do almost everything ourselves, with the exception of little bit of paid outside help for marketing, and we also pay for some of our community help (like admins etc).
Do you have any plans to add NFT's to your ecosystem as this is the hottest topic in the crypto space???
We... actually... do... :)
We also have some community members who do things like make songs about SAFERmoon, haha. See one here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-LnVxm_oSqc
