Vulcan Forged x Satoshi Club AMA Recap from 20th of February

Hello, Satoshi clubbers Another AMA took place in Satoshi Club and we would like to introduce to you the AMA session with our friends from Vulcan Forged and our guest was Jamie – representative of Vulcan Forged. The AMA took place on 20 February.

The total reward pool was 1000$ and has been split into 3 parts.

In this AMA Recap, we will try to summarise the most interesting points for you.

Part 1 — introduction and questions from the Website

Mary | Satoshi Club:
Hello, again Satoshi Club! We are happy to announce our AMA session with Vulcan Forged! Welcome to Satoshi Club😀

Jamie | Vulcan Forged:
Thanks! 🔥

Andrés M. | Satoshi Club:
Today our guest is @eimajine, welcome sir

Andrés M. | Satoshi Club:
How is going your weekend? 😃

Jamie | Vulcan Forged:
Superb. At the office. Greece has snow for the first time in decades. Very surreal.

Jamie | Vulcan Forged:
But good!

Mary | Satoshi Club:
Welcome to Satoshi Club 🚀

Andrés M. | Satoshi Club:
Wow, an exciting moment haha.

Mary | Satoshi Club:
That’s great!

Mary | Satoshi Club:
Could you please introduce yourself and tell us more about Vulcan Forged 😉

Jamie | Vulcan Forged:]
Sure thing.

British here, but live in Greece now. Guess I’m one of the ‘lucky’ ones that had a blockchain idea a couple of years ago and it took hold.

Started with a small digital art NFT site called VeriArti, and before long, things have escalated into a full-fledged NFT ecosystem. We’ve got 10+ games and dapps, over $5m in trading volume, a team of 21 now. And our main game which is currently in beta for 300 users is VulcanVerse, which is taking the metaverse decentralized sandbox into new realms

Mary | Satoshi Club, [20.02.21 16:04]
[In reply to Jamie | Vulcan Forged]
Super growth! Why art and NFT?

Jamie | Vulcan Forged:
Always been into NFTs since the silly kitties arrived. So though I’d try my luck at a digital art NFT site. And as we do something called fee delegation, it means there are zero gas fees to make NFTs with us. Because of that plenty more games started using our engine

And then we decided to get into virtual worlds.

Which is where we’re at now really.

Andrés M. | Satoshi Club:
Why Vulcano? It is related to the Roman god I imagine.

Andrés M. | Satoshi Club:
But why did you choose this name specifically?

Jamie | Vulcan Forged:
Here are some shots of our games and VulcanVerse by the way.

Jamie | Vulcan Forged:
Vulcan yes.

As it’s the God of fire and forging.

And we forge NFTs.

So kinda made sense.

And sounds better than Hepastses or however it’s pronounced

The Greek name for it.

And also, I think Greco-Roman fantasy is really coming back into style now.

Andrés M. | Satoshi Club:
So do you have some games that explore this type of mythology? It is an exciting style of videogames.

Mary | Satoshi Club:
I like the sense behind your Vulcan Forged 😉

Jamie | Vulcan Forged:
yes exactly. I mean we have some completely unrelated games like ‘Block Babies’ which is a cute collectible game and some others, but a lot of our games revolve around this mythology. We’ve got a hearthstone game called Berserk which is one of our most popular

It uses the characters from VulcanVerse in it

And of course, everything is an NFT.

Your land, the creatures, your cards, spells.

It’s all very connected.

Andrés M. | Satoshi Club:
Excellent graphics, is it necessary to have a good gaming PC to play?

Jamie | Vulcan Forged:
Not really. Designed for potato PCs really.

Our economy which we’re launching next week revolves very much around play-to-earn.

So you can earn what we call lava by smashing someone in a game of chess or Berserk and duse that to earn rewards or level up creatures in other games.

Mary | Satoshi Club:
👍👍👍

Andrés M. | Satoshi Club:
Awesome, I really need to try it, I love mythology and chess😁

Jamie | Vulcan Forged:
Then you’ll love our battle chess. All the Vulcanites (our creatures you fight with) are animated on teh chessboard and in the virtual world.

Mary | Satoshi Club:
Thank you for your intro! Jamie!

Mary | Satoshi Club:
Ready for the live part?😉

Andrés M. | Satoshi Club:
I’m sure I will 💪

Jamie | Vulcan Forged:
Pamp it.

Q1 from Telegram User @Wormz28
Vulcan Forged has grown from a small digital art NFT platform to a multi-dApp platform, game studio, launchpad, and a top 5 volume NFT marketplace and just recently you confirmed a cross-chain partnership with Matic Network to launch your ecosystem-wide token $PYR. So aside from MATIC’s rising dApp popularity, what other reasons why you chose to have a partnership with them? Also, what are the Incentives in Bridging to Matic?

Jamie | Vulcan Forged:
Well Matic, now Polygon, is probably the top Layer 2 solution, and offers next to nothing transaction fees, fee delegation and quicker settlement times…and to be honest, we had three chains asking us to move there, but the guys at Matic offered the most support.

And tapping into the eth community for our games and NFTs is essential.

Was a little boxed in on VeChain, not much entertainment or dapp usage there.

And the fact we’re the number 1 or 2 biggest usage of their chain kinda tells us we need a bigger audience.

Andrés M. | Satoshi Club:
We had AMA session with them these days, a great project.

Jamie | Vulcan Forged:
Yeah, they’re making big moves.

Andrés M. | Satoshi Club:
So, are the high fees of ETH network making work difficult in your NFT platform?

Mary | Satoshi Club:
When we will see the results of your partnership?😉 Or we already can?

Jamie | Vulcan Forged:
no, because we’re not on ETH. Our NFTs are on VeChain. And our token PYR will be on Polygon/Matic. Both of which offer next to nothing fees which we sponsor anyway.

Any game or dapp that builds with us never pays fees and we pay the fees needed for NFT transactions.

Andrés M. | Satoshi Club:
Got it, great decision.

Jamie | Vulcan Forged:
Why I think Layer 2 solutions are the future for now.

Until eth 2.0 perhaps.

Andrés M. | Satoshi Club:
Thanks for this clarification, are you ready for the next question? 😃

Jamie | Vulcan Forged:
Always!

Q2 from Telegram User @cengizhantekin
We almost all are familiar with NFTs but we do not fully know the production process and post-period. Since we can mint NFT on Vulcan platform, can you tell the overall story of an NFT, please? How do we mint, what is needed (images, videos, their formats), how much do we pay, how long does it take, how do we move it to a market, create an auction, etc.?

Jamie | Vulcan Forged:
Sure, we have a customized form for every dapp or game that wants to join us.

They don’t need to worry about fees and such.

It gets minted directly to their wallet, they get a dapp ID in our marketplace and they sell.

Some pics of it is at vulcanforged.com/anvil

You just have to apply to be a game or dapp with us and we take care of the rest.

Andrés M. | Satoshi Club:
Talking about your NFT market, it is a hot topic these days, what makes Vulcan Forged different from its direct competitors?

Mary | Satoshi Club:
Btw, I like your first NFT so much😂

Mary | Satoshi Club:
For those that care for these sorts of things the first-ever officially minted VRA token on mainnet is a tattooed Marilyn Monroe.

Jamie | Vulcan Forged:
Haha, it’s Vulcan, not Vulcano. But we have no fees for listing, no gas fees to create NFTs, it’s one of the most if not the most advanced NFT marketplaces there is. You can do batch NFT sales, NFT swaps, multiple auctions, very user friendly.

market.vulcanforged.com if you want to check it out.

Jamie | Vulcan Forged:
Crazy, 2/3 years ago that.

Now we’ve nearly 50k NFTs.

Andrés M. | Satoshi Club:
Wow haha, that’s how MM would look if she was born in this century, I think 😅

Jamie | Vulcan Forged:
My wife made that actually.

We used it as a test.

And yet here it is.

BTC breaking 60k right now…

Mary | Satoshi Club:
Your wife is really talented 😍

Andrés M. | Satoshi Club:
Haha sorry, that’s how is spelled in Spanish 😁

Jamie | Vulcan Forged:
Ah, forgiven then. Vulcan would have been angry.

Andrés M. | Satoshi Club:
Haha I’m sure he would.

Andrés M. | Satoshi Club:
We are living a new era in crypto, it is looking for more adoption, what do you think about it?🥳

Jamie | Vulcan Forged:
I think the times of whitepapers and vaporware are finished. I may be a bias of course, but I think the entertainment side of blockchain will flourish this year.

And finally the words crypto and blockchain might finally separate

Which is kinda good

Andrés M. | Satoshi Club:
Do you have other amazing designs to share with our community?

Jamie | Vulcan Forged:
Not from her no, she’s a tattoo artist, and not sure it’d be relevant here, but take a look at some our models and creatures in VulcanVerse:

Andrés M. | Satoshi Club:
Indeed.

Jamie | Vulcan Forged:

Jamie | Vulcan Forged:

Jamie | Vulcan Forged:
We’ve got one of the best sculptors globally, and that’s not an exaggeration. Every card you see there, that’s an NFT and it has a 3D model attached to it.

Which can be used in the world and across all our games.

Andrés M. | Satoshi Club:
Sure, which are the most famous characters in the VulcanVerse? apart from Vulcan.

Andrés M. | Satoshi Club:
Wow, a fantastic graphic design.

Jamie | Vulcan Forged:
There are 20 vulcanites of different levels, put the cards up there. But we also have the 12 Titans and 12 Olympians:

Jamie | Vulcan Forged:
Cool thing about the gods is that they start as babies.

But you have to nurture them to God mode.

Which gives you more rewards and game buffs.

Jamie | Vulcan Forged:
This is the above god Cronus as a baby.

And then you lock up tokens in order to bring him to God mode.

Which basically gives you all sorts of good stuff.

Andrés M. | Satoshi Club:
Have you thought about releasing a physical version of these cards for collectors?

Andrés M. | Satoshi Club:
Haha so cute and powerful.

Jamie | Vulcan Forged:
Yes, we’ve got a board game being made and a card game also.

Actually here’s a good plug about the gamebooks coming out. We’ve got the fighting fantasy authors writing 5 gamebooks on VulcanVerse being released from March.

https://cointelegraph.com/news/fantasy-authors-turn-the-vulcanverse-nft-game-into-a-trilogy-of-books

Andrés M. | Satoshi Club:
Great, we will be waiting for news about it 💪

Jamie | Vulcan Forged:
Want to make VulcanVerse a really established ecosystem and household name.

Also got the Gorillaz doing its soundtrack.

Moving away from the voxel web browser sandboxes.

Into AAA graphics with fantasy MMO functionality.

Andrés M. | Satoshi Club:
Do you have any trailers of the VulcanVerse?

Maybe an introductory video.

Jamie | Vulcan Forged:
There are dozens of videos all over Twitter from users and their experiences there. You can see them build and talk through their time. Let me fetch a few.

Andrés M. | Satoshi Club:
Sure.

Jamie | Vulcan Forged:
(purely terraforming)

https://twitter.com/VulcanVerse/status/1359183101931454464?s=20

Anyone is welcome

Will be a raffle.

Andrés M. | Satoshi Club:
Let’s join the community.

Well, is time for the next question 🎉

Q3 from Telegram User @Korryl
I read from Vulcan Forge twitter that your NFT trading and NFT swap already available, for NFT trading I already understand and there are similar site out there, but how about NFT swap, can you explain? And What are other feature that Vulcan Forged market place have?

Jamie | Vulcan Forged:
Yes, you can swap any NFT for another one, from any game/dapp. In fact, you can do batch trades. For example, put up 5 NFTs from different games and write what you want in return.

You can take up to 5 offers.

Choose your best.

And bosh, trade done.

Mary | Satoshi Club:
It’s something like a bundle, am I right?

Jamie | Vulcan Forged:
Yes right, a bundle.

Bundle of NFTs for another bundle of NFTs.

Andrés M. | Satoshi Club:
Btw, which has been the biggest sell made in your marketplace? I mean the most expensive.

Jamie | Vulcan Forged:
$14k for one plot of land.

Land goes for around $400 to $10k a plot now and we’re still only in beta.

Marketplace only launched a few months ago but we place top 5 volume most days.

Why we need to really get the eth dapp community involved.

Andrés M. | Satoshi Club:
Wow, a great moment to be a creator, do you have some guides for newbies that want to involve in this NFT ecosystem?

Mary | Satoshi Club:
This will be great🚀🚀🚀

Jamie | Vulcan Forged:
If they’re a gamer/buyer/seller then just join our discord or join a game you want to play.

Andrés M. | Satoshi Club:
Congratulations 💪

Jamie | Vulcan Forged:
If you have an idea or want to add your game or dapp to us then contact me.

And even if its just an idea or alpha stage.

We’ll help you get running.

Andrés M. | Satoshi Club:
Great info for our community.

Something else to add or can we proceed to the next question?

Jamie | Vulcan Forged:
Good to go to the next.

Q4 from Telegram user @yellowchamp
As I have read in Vulcan Twitter account that today at 4 pm GMT, applications for private sales of $PYR will be open and one of the requirements is there is a NEED for an OG badge. So can you tell us what is an OG Badge? How to obtain OG Badge? What are the ways to get OG Badge? What is this OG Badge for? Aside from private sale, are you also planning to conduct a public sale or presale for those who cannot catch up with Vulcan’s private sale? Is listing possible after a private sale? If yes, which exchange would be listed? Thank you!

Jamie | Vulcan Forged:
OG badges were given to the first-ever land buyers. There are only 813 of them. So private sales (which are maxed out now) are open to them only. However, we have a public sale offering 50% bonus tokens and then 25% bonus tokens in March.

The whitepaper and wave information is at vulcanforged.com under the ‘PYR’ menu

It’s a very small supply and cap so will be first come first serve on those public days.

And yes, we have exchanges ready.

Mary | Satoshi Club:
Do you have exact dates of this sale?

Jamie | Vulcan Forged:
Yes, March 17th and 18th.

Andrés M. | Satoshi Club:
How can our community join that Public Sale? can everyone join?

Jamie | Vulcan Forged:
Yup, the public open to anyone. Address will have to be whitelisted first of course. Best to track us on Twitter, TG, or discord to keep up to date on when we accept applications.

Andrés M. | Satoshi Club:
Could you tell us some of them or is it confidential information? 😁

Jamie | Vulcan Forged:
We can’t name the exchange, only that we have 3 lined up.

We’re made some good partners along our way.

Andrés M. | Satoshi Club:
Great, we have several investors interested in public sales like that.

Jamie | Vulcan Forged:
Superb. I mean you can buy a badge on the marketplace and apply for the private sale of course, but applications for that are today.

Mary | Satoshi Club:
Not several😂

Andrés M. | Satoshi Club:
Congratulations, as I said, we will are expecting news about Vulcan Forged.

Jamie | Vulcan Forged:
For sure, we’ll be here updating when we can.

Andrés M. | Satoshi Club:
Haha.

Mary | Satoshi Club:
Jamie, do you want to add something or we can go to the next question?😉

Jamie | Vulcan Forged:
Nope, next is fine.

Q5 from Telegram User @asalas95
When I joined the Vulcan Telegram group, I was immediately gifted with a beautiful NFT card, thank you very much! Considering the design that I noticed in your NFT, I would like to know, who is the artistic team behind the design of each of these cards? Is it a job that is also performed by the designers of the game, or is there a team specially dedicated to the creation of your cards?

Jamie | Vulcan Forged:
In our office in Greece, there are 8 of us. 3 of them are artists. That picture you saw is by Jimi-x. He’s one of the best z-brush sculptors there is. Made the finals of a WOW character creation competition. In fact, most of the team in this office are coders and artists. Our team in UK and Ukraine are the land and sandbox makers. So yes, we have an entire team dedicated to just art.

But yes, art is really top of our selling points.

Andrés M. | Satoshi Club:
And you are doing an excellent job, the design of each NFT that you have shared with us is unique and amazing.

Jamie | Vulcan Forged:
Great to hear, thank you!

Mary | Satoshi Club:
I like your stickers 👍

They are amazing! You’re really doing a great job!

Andrés M. | Satoshi Club:
This one remembers me of the movie “Pan’s Labyrinth” I really love it.

Mary | Satoshi Club:
Haven’t seen this movie 🤦

Jamie | Vulcan Forged:
Here she is in-game.

That’s a level 1 vulcanite.

Mary | Satoshi Club:
Wow!

Jamie | Vulcan Forged:
She has high foraging skills.

Jamie | Vulcan Forged:
(finding NFTs in the world)

Andrés M. | Satoshi Club:
What is her name?

Jamie | Vulcan Forged:

Pheaeri, Dryad of the Woodland Glades.

Only 300 editions.

Andrés M. | Satoshi Club:
Very impressive🔥

Mary | Satoshi Club:
It’s rare😉

Jamie | Vulcan Forged:
yes, although level 5 vulcanites are 50 editions.

Some are 500.

etc

Andrés M. | Satoshi Club:
Which is the rarest?

Mary | Satoshi Club:
Jamie, I can go full in😂😂😂

Jamie | Vulcan Forged:

Asterion for sure.

We’ve not released level 6 or 7s yet though.

7 will of course include dragons 🙂

Oh, nvm, Asterion is a 6.

He goes for around $3k now.

But no one sells him.

Mary | Satoshi Club:
Greedy people 😂

Andrés M. | Satoshi Club:
Amazing, I need it 😁

Jamie | Vulcan Forged:
You can find vulcanite in the world, you have found fragments of spells.

That summon them.

Otherwise, just have to buy one on the marketplace from someone.

Andrés M. | Satoshi Club:
Is there a guide to know things like that?

Or each gamer should find it by himself?

Jamie | Vulcan Forged:
Yes, can check out vulcanverse.com but really best to join the Vulcan-classroom in Discord.

Really welcoming community.

And the cool thing is you can use the vulcanizes in the virtual world and across our other games like Forge Arena, or battle chess, or berserk.

Same NFT.

Mary | Satoshi Club:
Thanks, Jamie! For your answers and these great NFTs! Awesome!

Ready for the 6th and last question from this part?

Jamie | Vulcan Forged:
Yup!

Andrés M. | Satoshi Club:
Yes, It has been an amazing conversation, I really enjoy it as a gamer and collector

Q6 from Telegram user @JoanaZ
Exploring your website I just realized that one of your partners is MATIC, so apart of be compatible with Ethereum, you also can work with the Matic chain?

Jamie | Vulcan Forged:
yes exactly. We partnered with Arkane also, so we’ll have a custom Vulcan wallet using their tech which allows users to store their NFTs from one chain and transact with our token PYR on Matic, all from one wallet.

We’re also becoming a validator node on the Polygon/Matic network.

So we can sponsor all tx fees.

Mary | Satoshi Club:
It’s very tempting😉

Jamie | Vulcan Forged:
Come join the forge, Mary. Get yourself a Dryad and never leave.

The sandbox is incredibly addicting.

Literally, make incredible fantasy sculptures

Mary | Satoshi Club:
Jamie, 😂 you feel my passion 😂

Jamie | Vulcan Forged:
we’ve got a giveaway of a God in 50 mins. Welcome anyway!

Mary | Satoshi Club:
So fast!

Q10 from Telegram user @Rosane1a8
Vulcan Forged claims to be easy to use and build, but, how easy it actually is? What basic knowledge in crypto and other fields would be needed to use Vulcan Forged properly and efficiently? Regarding to this, ate your functions oriented more to beginners, or may result attractive to experts as well? Does the simplicity compromise the diversity and exactitude of the possible solutions?

Jamie | Vulcan Forged:
You literally need nothing but an idea and an image. Once you’ve got your NFTs, you have api routes to fetch them and do what you want. It couldn’t be simpler to be honest.

Part 3 – Quiz Results

In the final part, we tested your knowledge in terms of Vulcan Forged . They’ve prepared 4 questions for this part. The total reward pool for the quiz was 800$.
