Thanks to all for participating in our AMA with Alien Worlds. We really appreciate all your support. There were really good and thoughtful questions that were asked. For those who missed our AMA, this AMA recap is for you.
Manpreet – Hello @mortyAW Welcome to CryptoNationIN 🎉. We’re glad to have you for the AMA today 🤗. How you doing today?
Morty – I am doing very good, how is everyone doing today?
Manpreet – I hope they’re doing well because of this AMA session.
Morty – Very excited to be here.
Manpreet – That’s good. Please introduce yourself to the community.
Morty – My name is Pramod. I go by the name Morty in many crypto groups on discord and telegram.
I am a game designer by profession and a graphic artist.
I’ve been a part of the Alien Worlds team right from it’s inception.
My past experiences have been in designing rules, levels and economies for mobile and pc games. My contributions to the game has been mainly in the area of design, creating NFT art and managing a team of external developers to ensure product delivery on time.
I am very excited to be here to share Alien Worlds project with Crypto Nation Community.
Manpreet – It’s fascinating @mortyAW 👌
Morty – Thanks 😊
Manpreet – Now, please give a brief introduction about the Alien Worlds to the community.
PS: They’re excited to know about it 👀
Morty – Sure, thing.
Alien Worlds is an NFT defi metaverse where NFT collectibles have utility in-game and are fully user-owned and uses both WAX and Ethereum blockchain.
Another way to look at Alien Worlds is that it is a futuristic simulation of a virtual world where mankind was forced to leave earth due to factors like pandemics, climate change etc and they then went to set up new worlds outside earth where everything is tokenised in the form of NFTs. From land plots, to tools and weapons to everything else there is. The Alien Worlds metaverse has it’s own metaversial currency called TLM (fungible erc-20 token) which can be mined using tools which is then used to participate in various activities the metaverse has to offer
Alien Worlds features 6 planets DAOs into space where they compete for control of TLM. Landowners in Alien Worlds compete or come in allegiance with other land owners to make their land most attractive to miners who mine TLM and NFTs. Miners continuously keep discovering new mining strategies to optimize their mining efforts.
I hope to see you guys joining our telegram after this ama and jumping into the game to mine some precious TLM😅
By the way before we proceed further I have an important announcement to make.
Anyone joining our telegram with the hashtag #helloAlienWorlds and #CNC will enter a lucky draw to win an Alien Worlds promo pack.
Manpreet – Woah! Alien Worlds is cutting-edge.
Morty – Indeed. A lot more to explore throughout this AMA.
Manpreet – So, @mortyAW
Are you ready to answer the amazing twitter questions?
Morty – Let’s go!
I hope I am prepared, you guys had some really great questions. Love the enthusiasm of this community ❤️
Q1. I think it is an excellent approach for your game, however I would like to know, how deep is the integration of the blockchain in your game? Does it only work for NFT trading or does the entire metaverse in general work via blockchain?
Morty – Everything about Alien Worlds is on the blockchain. Every action done on the UI is recorded on chain, from mining to switching items, picking a land to mine to setting up commission. We use WAX blockchain as layer 2 and our token is live on ETH and we just launched a test token contract on BSC also.
Here you can take a look at some of our core contracts on Wax blockchain
Mining contract – https://wax.bloks.io/account/m.federation
Planets, lands, players registration – https://wax.bloks.io/account/federation
NFT trading is solely on WAX blockchain at the moment. You can trade Alien World NFTs on various secondary market like atomicassets.io, https://waxstash.com/, https://www.nfthive.io/ etc.
Q2. During the 2020 I got scammed a few times, rugs, exit scams etc. – how can we investors be sure that this will not be similar, are your contracts public & somewhere to be seen?
Morty – We get this question a lot and it is a very valid question. I’ve been scammed and rugged many times in the last 2 years. More in 2020, lol trying to grab those low cap uniswap gems.
Our team is very public, our investor information is public. We raised $2M in private sale from notable investors like Animoca Brands, LongLing Capital, creators of China’s Meitu app, One Block, Hillrise Capital, Moonwhale Ventures, Momentum 6, LD Capital and X21 Digital
These are some of the big players in this space. They wouldn’t invest in a project or a team that was out there to scam or pull a rug.
With respect to the contracts all our contracts a public and audited. I shared a couple of our core contracts for question no 1
Here’s a quick medium post where we announced the $2M funding
Q3. What exactly are ” Landowner-offered NFTs”? How do these non-fungible tokens work and what role do they play in the Alien Worlds platform? How will both landowners and miners benefit from them?
Morty – Alien Worlds Land owners receive passive income in the form of mining commission. Miners are free to choose on what lands they want to mine on. Land owners do their best to attract more miners to mine on their lands by charging competitive commission rates. Some land owners have slashed their commission rates to as low as 2%, the default is set to 20%.
We are building tools for every Landowner to offer their own NFTs to the miners to attract more miners to their lands.
More technical details about the land owner NFTs can be found in our technical blue print
Landowner benefit from having more people mining on their lands meaning more passive income and miners get additional NFTs which they can collect or sell in the secondary market.
Q4. Your game is similar to Bitcoin mining. but we do it manually by pressing a button in the game. I want to ask if you can use a multi-account for TLM mining? can I use a third program to automatically press “MINE”?
Morty – Well, if you have more than one person using your device and computer you can have more than 1 person playing the game. There is no way for us to track whether the same accounts belongs to one person unless we see a lot of accounts sending their mined TLM to 1 sinkhole account. You must not use a bot to mine TLM, a lot of users are doing this and we blacklist them.
If you see anyone in our community complaining about them receiving very low tlm like 0.0002 tlm, that means those guys are blacklisted because they were using bots.
We have a very strong bot detection system in place which is a self learning system that discovering patters and easily identifies people botting
There may have been a couple of instances where the bot may have wrongly flagged some accounts but we are considerate enough to unflag them after we see it was a mistake.
Remember there are a lot of other players mining and it is unfair to use bots to get an advantage in the game. You wouldn’t like it if someone stole the pot from you.
Q5. How are the TLM and NFT planets replenished and how often? Is this number the same for all planets and is always the same or does it depend on something and is different every time?
Morty – So, The Federation – the entity that control the Trilium distribution distributes 0.0025% tlm daily to planets. There is a locked box of 5B TLM which is meant for gaming and mining activity which gets allocated to the planets in the Alien Worlds metaverse in the accordance to the TLM staked to the planet.
The number in % is the same i.e. 0.0025% daily of the remaining TLM in the locked box.
The amounts received by planets may vary depending on the amount of TLM staked to the planets.
Q1. Community is a key element for any project if you want to be successful, how can you ensure that the community is shared in governance? Do we need to place bets to get votes or do we need to run nodes?
Morty – For every project community is a very important part of their growth and same goes for us. We have started a public trello board for the community to give us suggestions and improvement that will help us build a game that our community would like to play.
We also have a Galactic Hub fund which has 1bn tokens to support galactic hub communities and content creators. If you’d like to collaborate the best place to do so will be to start a discussion in our Galactic Hub Ideation channel on our discord at discord.io/alienworlds.
Q2. Who makes the decision to block user funds? What can lead to the blocking of user funds?
Morty – There is no blocking of funds. We don’t block user funds. There maybe have been instances where you accounts may have been blacklisted for using bots. You can always start with a new account and be fair after that.
Q3. I’m a developer, and I’m interested in contributing to your project alongsides earning, Do you have any Bug Bounty to check for vulnerabilities ?
Morty – We have Galactic Hub fund which is exactly for people like you who can add value to the project. Join our discord community at discord.io/alienworlds and jump into the Galactic hub Ideation channel to discuss your ideas.
Q4. Are there any plans to bring governance or staking options to the your $ token in the next 6 months? Year?
Morty – We have already started the candidate registration process. You can register as custodian candidate on https://council.alienworlds.io/
You will need a minimum of 5k TLM staked to a planet you want to run as a custodian candidate for.
We raised $2 M in the private sale round through some of the big players in the crypto defi and NFT space.
You can learn more about our investors and partners here.
Q5. What companies are you partnered with or seeking to partner with in future?
Morty – Here’s a quick list of our partners from our website
Thank you Morty (Core team member) and Community for participating in the AMA. Have a nice day.
