DEFY is one of the most awaited AMA for me

And i can’t wait to start it!

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club

Indeed, you are our long-awaited guest.

Let’s start with the introduction to warm up.

Tell us please about yourself and position in DEFY

How did you get to be involved in crypto & DEFY

Ben

Hi I’m Ben, Co-founder of DEFY labs. I primarily look after partnerships, strategy & marketing for DEFY

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club

Hi! Nice to e-meet you Ben

Mary | Satoshi Club

Happy to e-meet you! How did you start with crypto? Is DEFY your first crypto project?

Ben

 I’ve been working in the web2 world of location based apps and tech for the last 5 years. But in my spare time dabbling and exploring the world of crypto

Its the first crypto biz, but myself & the founders have been building successful businesses for years before

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club

this is a really interesting trend.

Mary | Satoshi Club

So you can introduce DEFY to our community  tell us what is your project about?

Ben

sure

DEFY is a move to earn NFT mobile game built on the Polygon Layer 2 platform. Immersing players (operatives) in a metaverse that bridges the virtual and physical worlds, DEFY fuses hyper casual code breaking gameplay, learn to earn elements, real world exploration and AR adventures.

Mary | Satoshi Club

What inspired you to create your project?  STEPN’s success? Maybe you were inspired by Pokémon Go before?

Ben

Oh no, our origin story comes way earlier than STEPN

The DEFY team has extensive experience in developing highly successful location based mobile applications, having previously launched the District Race app and created highly sought after white label fitness apps for large global companies. These apps have scaled to over 700,000 users globally and partnered with brands such as Apple, adidas, Redbull and MasterCard.

Mary | Satoshi Club

Wow, sadly, but i wasn’t District Race user …

Ben

Well we are happy to welcome you to DEFY!

Mary | Satoshi Club

But i am DEFY user

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club

Sounds great

Mary | Satoshi Club

And @GoldRocket27 as well)

Ben

We’ve learned a lot and used that to create the best Move to Earn game

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club

Yeah

Mary | Satoshi Club

Ben, tell us who helps you to develop DEFY? Who are in your team?

Ben

We are “revolutionising” move to earn gaming

Mary | Satoshi Club

Any doubts

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club

you really took the hearts and minds of Satoshi Clubbers right now, many are risking their lives for the sake of the game

Ben

There’s myself, and 2 co-founders including our CTO. Ably supported by a small but powerful team of 13 people

Mary | Satoshi Club

It’s really powerful!

Ben, thank you for your intro! I am excited to hear your answers to the questions from our community

Ben

Q1 from Telegram user   @DK177

According to your introduction about the platform, DEFY is the first location based P2E game in the world. Please explain about the benefits of making the game a location based one. How does this structure improve the user experience of P2E mode? Did you conduct adequate research before introducing this structure to DEFY? If yes, did you see any drawbacks of P2E platforms that can be rectified by making those platforms location based ones?

Ben

LFG

Mary | Satoshi Club

WGMI

Ben

Thanks @DK177

So, we believe that to win in the M2E space, it’s critical we create a super fun game, that has long term playability. In our opinion, just rewarding people for tracking movement may run into issues. The location based part of our game is woven into a really engaging lore and universe, which has players exploring the world to hack Future Systems towers and steal their FCOIN

We’ve done a ton of research and have some of the best minds in the business as our advisors

As to how we can improve on existing models – for us the biggest focus is creating an economy that can be sustained long term by delivering value in different ways – not just a simple top down model

Mary | Satoshi Club

We also need to decrypt  i’ve never passed high level it’s a food for brains)

Ben

haha it is so hard!

Soon you’ll be able to buy exploits that bypass the decryption process (or speed them up), using your FCOIN

Mary | Satoshi Club

Do you listen to your community opinion? Can you give an example of this, if yes?

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club

awesome

Ben

Sure, we try our best at this.

Ben

The community has been full of feedback on Discord, reporting issues to the development team – which is part of a alpha test period. The team has been working on them and making changes almost immediately

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club

Thanks for your great answers

Mary | Satoshi Club

Ready to proceed?

Ben

yes

Q2 from Telegram user   @konditer_rolex

I already own the mask and have access to the alpha version of the game. While studying the roadmap, I found that there will be several types of masks, as well as the sale of lands. Considering the fact that the game is currently lag and I can’t collect tokens, I’m worried the question of the loss of value of my mask. Tell us about the types of existing and future masks, as well as how the value of masks that have already been minted will be maintained.

BenFair question. Since minting starting, the masks have been trading between 2-9x the mint price, so I would recommend you hodl those genesis masks. Token launch comes soon

Mary | Satoshi Club

About tokens and rewards i have a question

Ben

As to the future mask series, I cant say too much as we’re making an announcement soon – however be assured the genesis masks will never be minted again and will always be the most desirable

go for it

Mary | Satoshi Club

As i know you have vesting period for rewards 60 months

Is this true? Can i consider this vesting to our alpha rewards?

Ben

Not that I am aware of?

Alpha rewards will not have a long vesting period and there will be liquidity on token launch

Mary | Satoshi Club

So, which kind of vesting you will have for alpha rewards? And will we need to pass any kind of KYC to withdraw our $DEFY?

Ben

Yes, all holders will need to do KYC via blockpass

Mary | Satoshi Club

And one last additional question. What are benefits for owning masks from Fantom Galaxy collaboration?

Ben

First one, they are more rare than the genesis class. However the earning potential is the same. We are working with the PG team to create some special in game items for holders as well as benefits within the PG universe as well

Mary | Satoshi Club

Thank you for your answers, Ben! Ready to go to the next question?

Ben

Yes please

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club

Q3 from Telegram user @ghostofcharmeleon

Hello, the Defy team.

Based on your tokenomics, funds that invested in the project at an early stage bought a token at a price 10 times lower than the price at the public sales round. The start of unlocking their tokens is expected six months after the IDO. Even if the token does not grow much during this time, but remains at the same level by the time of unlocking, they will already have x10. And their sales can put a lot of pressure on the price. How do you plan to protect the token price from avalanche sales of funds? What will motivate you to keep it for a long time?

Ben

The investors in the project have a long lock up period, with a cliff of either 12 or 18 months, with quarterly vesting over another 18 months. We have some of the longest investor vesting in the space. We have also chosen our investors wisely and said “no” to many interested parties.

If you look at the investors on our table, they all have a reputation for diamond hands.

Lastly, we have a buy back mechanism in place

Mary | Satoshi Club

Could you name us your investors?  How much funds did you raise from them?

Ben

Here you go

Mary | Satoshi Club

Thank you

Great job

Ready to jump to the next question?

Ben

appreciate it

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club

Amazing

Ben

yep!

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club

Q4 from Telegram User @Z0ryan

Hello, I am from Ukraine and I have a mask. While testing the game, I had some questions about locations. When I went outside and broke the tower, my wallets appeared in such unexpected places that have nothing to do with roads, streets and other places where people walk. If I tried to collect them and miraculously get to the places where the dream fcoins are, then unfortunately I would just be killed (literally) by our military. Because my behavior would not seem reasonable to them. I could even paraphrase the direction of the game from move2earn to die2earn in my case. So my question is simple – Are you working on the mechanism that can remote wallets from dangerous and suspicious places to pedestrian zones?

Ben

I’m sorry to hear about your situation @Z0ryan

The simple answer is yes, we are refining our location algorithm but as its based on public data sources its always going to be tough to catch everything

Mary | Satoshi Club

Btw, to be honest i have difficulties as well. Here is photos of my yesterday’s try some wallets were in the sea

Ben

We are also soon to launch in game tools (consumables) such as range extenders so you can steal wallets from further away

Swimming is also moving!

Mary | Satoshi Club

Ahaha

I will try to get waterproof phone

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club

lol… if you’re not Jesus you can’t get those wallets

Ben

Seriously, in an alpha its great to gather this data and make improvements. I appreciate the feedback

Mary | Satoshi Club

Thank you! Ben, we will wait for updates and appreciate your work! Because game is really cool!

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club

Thanks for your great answers

Mary | Satoshi Club

My friend is playing it right now  here

Ben

That really makes me happy!

Thanks

Mary | Satoshi Club

Ben, are you ready for the next question?

Ben

yes

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club

And here is a question from Jesus knocking at our door.

Q5 from Telegram User @JesusFre1tes

Polygon, the network used by DEFY, may take a little longer to produce the masks, especially during the first few hours due to the expected volume of transactions. With this specific point in mind, does DEFY plan to integrate other networks to address this issue? Why have you chosen Polygon to support the disruptive system you plan to create? What are your plans regarding the integration of multiple networks?

Ben

We are planning a multi chain future for the game

It was super important for us that we could create a platform where players can mint and transfer/trade items with minimal friction and cost

So far Polygon worked beautifully on last saturdays NFT mint

Mary | Satoshi Club

That’s true, it was easy and cheap!

Ben

We minted 7000+ NFTs in less than 13mins, with the total gas only a few bucks

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club

Absolutely agree

Mary | Satoshi Club

But everyone minted using invites if it was free mint it could be a bit difficult

Ben

I was minting personally myself and it was so nice compared to the ETH L1 gas wars I am used to

Yes good point

Mary | Satoshi Club

But anyway much easier than using ETH

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club

Ben

I think the DEFY team came up with a good system to make sure the masks end up in the hands of real players

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club

this is my beauty

Ben

Nice!

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club

I admire him

Ben

Our masks are designed by a great street artist/graffiti artist from Asia

Mary | Satoshi Club

That’s mine) gold fish

Ben

looks rare!

Mary | Satoshi Club

Yes, they are all excellent!

Do you have mask rarity? Where we can check?

Ben

Yes, click on “levels” in opensea

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club

They are truly unique.. I think you are at the forefront of the new NFT hype. It’s really wonderful

Thanks for your great answers

Ready to proceed to the last question of this part?

Ben

yes

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club

Q6 from Telegram User @Ask4unik

I read from your roadmap Q2 2022 about the launch of your SOVEREIGN mask NFT class.The name captivated my interest.What makes it superior?Can you give us a hint about what this class is all about?Who can participate in this class?Will the NFTs minted from this class be different from the regularly minted NFTs?Are there courses to be offered in this class? Lastly,will tuition fees be paid for participants to gain access to this class? Explain

Ben

Very sharp eyes to find this detail

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club

in fact, we are so excited about the game that we do not want to let you go

Ben

More info to come, but the basic idea is we are creating a new way for scholars and guilds to be involved

We are creating a structured way for people to earn their way to owning an NFT. More to come later in May

Really really excited to announce this. Its never been done before

Mary | Satoshi Club

We will definitely follow your updates

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club

Part 2 — live questions from the Telegram community

Q1 from Telegram user @PoohTheComedian

I read that Defy’s token launch will take place this late May. I also read that IDO and IEO will happen as one with it, and you want to give users the fairest experience for this event. Can you please share us when will this event will take place this May? Also, what platforms can we buy Defy tokens after the anticipated launchdates?

Ben

Thanks – I know a lot of people are keen to know more about the token launch. There is a huge amount of work happening behind the scenes to make the token launch as big as possible. You’ll have to stay tuned for details which will come soon

Q2 from Telegram user @olivia1326088

I noticed that you released an Alpha game. How will users be able to access the alpha test for DEFY? What are the new features that this Alpha release will bring to DEFY’s ecosystem and the users?

Ben

Many in game NFT items, including drones, weapons and AR portal spaces. All customisable and tradable on our market place platform

Q3 from Telegram user @BrayantGonzalez

Could you explain in a few words and in a simple way what is the theme of this game? I saw that they talk about hacking and different towers, but I really don’t understand the game well? And what will the missions be like?

Ben

The best way to get it is to watch our trailer: https://youtu.be/EtTDWmFWcW8
