SEGMENT 1: INTRODUCTION
Host: Hello, KCC community, we are about to kick off the AMA!Firstly, I would like to introduce myself. This is Akshaj. I am one of the ambassadors of KCC from India, and I will be your host for today’s AMA. Hope so everyone can actively participate in and grab a lot of knowledge about the project!
Raka: Hi everyone, I’m Raka — Global Community Manager of Popop World. It is my pleasure to be here and share with you about Popop World.
Q1: Can you briefly share what your project is about? What is special about it?
Raka: While the entire world is focused on NFT gaming projects, the Popop World team has created the minigames Popop World to provide users with a transparent, respectable, and entertaining platform to increase their income.
Popop World is the world’s first blockchain-powered Play-to-Earn minigames platform. Everyone can play alone or compete with other casual gaming fans from around the globe.
Furthermore, players can win Play-to-Earn rewards in the following ways:
💰Accumulate the contribution value through gaming and competitions, and redeem it for POP.
💰Income through collecting and trading Popman NFT obtained from playing games, completing missions, etc.
💰Stake POP to participate in DAO governance and win token rewards and rare NFT
💰Participate in Popop World, creating minigames and sharing game revenue
Q2: What are the difference between Popop and other GameFi projects?
Raka: Unlike other NFT game projects, the majority of the our minigames only take 2–3 minutes to get acquainted with, and each game round lasts around 1–2 minutes, making them P2E-able anywhere and at any time.
In the future, we want Popop World to be the concept of a creative playground where users can design their own Popman NFT and get rewards (POP Token, NFT). Other users can vote for their favorite Popman design.
Many issues have arisen in GameFi projects, including overproduction of resources and assets, as well as token runs that result in significant inflation. This is frequently due to the fact that those projects lack sufficient token utility, lack a destroy or burn mechanism, and fail to address the balance between markets at various levels.
So we will have many ways to solve these problems above
One of them is that we designed that the exchange rate is updated every 5 blocks on average to reduce the inflation
- Exchange rate = EXP prize pool / POP prize pool
EXP prize pool = (exp accumulated by users playing games) — (exp consumed by users, including redemption, upgrades, etc.)
POP prize pool = (total amount of POP released by the game ecology) — (POP exchanged for EXP)
Q3: Can you be more specific about the gameplay?
Raka: Definitely, the principal purpose of our project is that we want players of all ages to be able to earn from our minigames anytime & anywhere. For this reason, we formed a lot of minigames accordingly to the different characteristics of players.
Each minigame in Popop World has different game rules, but it’s pretty simple and easy overall. You need our NFT (called Popman) to unlock the game first. When you pick a game, it will show you the rule to review so that you can consider whether to play it or not. You will gain EXP depending on the score you get after playing. Furthermore, it doesn’t take much time to play. You can finish the game in a short time, about 1–2 minutes only.
You can watch our TUTORIAL & Gameplay here, which should give you an idea:
Q4: Do you have any tokens or NFTs?
Raka: Sure, Popop World has POP Tokens, vePOP, and Popman NFTs.
Popop World Token is called POP. It is an ERC-20 Token on the Polygon chain. You can get $POP from EXP in the game by converting it or trading USDT for $POP on the LBank exchange at the moment. Players can use it to buy NFT, participate in game governance, or stake POP to increase their income. We will launch the Staking POP function on April 22nd. Users who stake POP will get both POP & vePOP, and they can use vePOP as voting tokens for significant decisions in the Popop World.
About Popman NFTs: We divided our Popman into five levels: B, A, S, SS, and SSS. The higher level, the more rare NFT and the higher the game contribution value bonus (EXP)
Different series of Popman NFT have various appearance elements. All Popman NFTs are unique, not only can increase the player’s income in the game but also have natural scarcity attributes and collection value. There are only Genesis Popman and Airdrop Popman series at the moment, so stay tuned for our next Popman series.
We may work with MojitoSwap and KuSwap in the near future to sell our NFT on their marketplaces, making it easier for people to exchange their NFT. We’ll also be ready for the second round of NFT sales, which will start after the Genesis Popman series has sold out. So keep an eye out!
Q5: What does the roadmap look like in 2022?
In the short-term(2022): We are focusing on listing POP Tokens on DEX.
We also connect more KOLs to join Popop World. Consequently, we plan to create a series of Popman NFT that has the KOL’s figure. It would be great for users wanting to own KOL Popman and earn through the P2E mechanism.
We also overcame several challenges this year, thanks to our gamers for offering valuable input and suggestions during our BETA test, which allowed us to develop our product. And we recently released the official game. In the rest of 2022 we will seriously work on enhancing the economic model in-game during the development of our product. Furthermore, we want to encourage trading and swapping of our tokens while maintaining the price of our tokens high or stable. To accomplish so, we’ll need to create a strong user base and a thriving market. We want to launch content creation competitions, hire more KOL, and eventually support local communities to decide the ecosystem’s future path.
In the long-term: Popop will be the world’s “Big Boss” in the segment of entertainment platform Mini-Game. We hope Popop will become the world’s first entertainment platform that allows other businesses or organizations that want to work together to update their mini-games to the Popop World platform
Q6: How can KCC users try out your games?
Raka: In fact, we will launch purchasing Popman NFT with Pop Tokens at 7 AM UTC on April 21st. KCC Users can trade USDT for Pop Tokens on LBank Exchange, then buy Popman NFT directly on our website: https://www.popop.world/market/blind
Also, you can trade Popman NFT among users through NFT third-party trading platforms that support the Polygon network, such as Opensea.
SEGMENT 2: COMMUNITY QUESTIONS (TELEGRAM LIVE QUESTIONS)
Did you consider community feedback/requests during the creation of your product in order to expand on fresh ideas for your project? Many projects fail because the target audience and clients are not understood. So I’d like to know who your ideal consumer is for your product?
Raka: Sure, as I mentioned in the previous segment, we overcame several challenges this year thanks to our gamers for offering valuable input and suggestions during our BETA test. So In the future, there is no reason that we do not listen to our users. In addition, we want players of all ages to be able to earn from our minigames anytime & anywhere. For this reason, we formed a lot of minigames accordingly to the different characteristics of players.
Are your Games safe for Teenagers, Kids or they are adult rated that includes violence, adult content or anything like that most of the games today are? What kind of experience we can have in Popop World?
Raka: Yes, definitely our games is safe for all ages. I know many users don’t really have time for playing games whole day. So, our games is designed not to take much time to play. You can play the game with your friends anytime. Plus, because of the easy gameplay, you can let your kids, your brothers to play the game & earn in spite of playing other casual games
3. @PowPow_Crypto :
I’ve been following pop since the early days, the most disturbing thing I think is the anti-inflation mechanism. pop ready for that mechanism, can pop share everyone?
Raka: Sure, we’ve prepared everything for the token inflation. We build the product later other projects, it doesn’t mean we’re slow. We’ve sophisticated learned from other projects failure so we could build a better economic model
In the near future we will develop more features to increase the utility of POP Tokens
Let’s try out Popop World
Lots of Pop world players They now hold many $POP How can you maintain the price at this particular time and that most of them will sell after giving up Lbank and heading to a second platform , what is your plan in this case ?
Raka: We launch POP staking soon and also update our game at the same time. Those who sell POP at listing wont have many benefits as other holders. Also we are perfecting our business model to control inflation. Which will include NFT burning. To reduce chances of Popman NFT to be burned, you need to stake POP as buying an insurance. At the same time huge marketing campaign will be held and those who want to buy POP will outnumber those who want to sell if things go well
5. @FortunateTelegram :
Too many projects promise magic but never release any working product or prove any revenue, Within a short/long time of release. Is your project also like this? If not can u tell us, What makes your project different from other projects?
Raka: We do not promise anything, we will implement what we’ve announced at the moment. As I state, In the future, we want Popop World to be the concept of a creative playground where users can design their own Popman NFT and get rewards (POP Token, NFT). Other users can vote for their favorite Popman design. In that way, many users will have their own interesting ways to join in Popop World, not just buying NFT then play the game
Other games use NFT as characters of their game. We are not going the same road. Our NFT called Popman has huge potential of growth as our NFT used to unlocked the games only. With this nature of our NFT we can collab with influences that we can sell co-branded NFTs. And we are not a game. We are platform of games like Steam or GALA. That means other game developers can bring their game on our platform and share benefits
In summary, we have more ways to grow and cooperate with other parties.
Thank you for those wonderful answer’s. We wish the best of luck for your project. We’ll announce the winners in a few days.
Raka: Yubbbb, let’s play Popop World, we have a strong and solid user base
Also in the future, you can own a KOL Popman, that’s interesting right?
