we hosted an amazing AMA with CardMonsters on the 21th of December And here we will put some of the best questions:
Q1) Can you please introduce yourself as well as Cardmonsters ?
Hello everyone, I am the marketing manager of CardMonsters. I am fueled by a deep technology curiosity, which is how I’ve known about the crypto market and worked full time in this field. Our game team has more than 10 years’ experience in gaming. We started to pay attention to the blockchain in 2017. This year we were inspired by Aixe infinity and decided to make this game. CardMonsters is a blockchain card game, rich in gameplay but easy to get started. The main features are duel against other players, play to earn mode, mystic cards, special events, e-sports season, create earn & Player DAO Like Axie Infinity, we also adopted the Play2Earn mechanic. In the meantime, we are going to build up our player DAO, which give part of the game development decision to the community. For example, in the create to earn system that we plan to go live in the future, players can decide how the new cards of the game will be updated, so that both players and artists in the community have the opportunity to get a decent reward for the update.
Q2) What are the advantages of Your project ?
The major difference is the change of business model. In traditional games, the most common business model is the in-game purchase. Such as Genshin Impact, if you want your hero to be full equipment, you have to keep buying the official blind box. Since it constructs a large portion of a game company’s revenue, most game companies discourage players to trade game props. They hope players do not trade at all, or even essentially prohibit players to trade. In this way, players will have more incentive to keep opening new blind boxes, and in return, the game company will keep the profit. In contrast, the core business model of Gamefi’s game, I think， is to charge transaction fees or charge player tax for creating a metaverse. Charging for game props shouldn’t be the mainstream business model, only in that way, the game manufacturers will have more incentive to motivate props trade between players while creating more fun game scenes for game props. However, due to the development schedule, in our first version of CardMonster, there was no way to outlaw the charging model for props through the mystic box. But in the later versions, I believe we can do it. In addition to the new library of cards, new cards created in the trading market will be generated by players through our game mechanics. Players can create new cards or trade cards for profit. And we will stop releasing blind boxes other than new cards at some point in the future of the game.
Q3) please tell us about the goal you want to achieve in this year.
What we want to achieve is to become the top 10 crypto game.
Q4) Every project has a story behind their name, Can you tell us more about the story behind this? Who are the team behind this project? can tell us their background?
This name was chosen because of the gameplay. Monster cards are a very important part of the game, and we are a card game again, so this is the name. We are supported by top platforms and institutions. The game development team has at least 10 years of game development experience, and also has a composite background in finance and crypto.
And here we will put best questions from our members and CardMonsters fans:
Q1) As your mission is not just to create a card game that player can play, trade and earn, but to build a platform game that contacts crypto owners with this players and artists, so, how would your platform literally connect crypto owners with players and and artists?And any win – win benefits ?
Artists and players can participate in the design of our game cards. Once the cards they design are accepted by the community, when these cards are publicly released, these artists and experienced players will be able to profit, and at the same time their supporters Will be rewarded.
Of course, we will have a set of review standards, because game card design is not easy. For trading users and players, if they want to benefit from it, they all need to understand our game itself.
Q2) Honestly i haven’t quite understood the reason why two tokens apear in your ecosystem, being these $CMP and $CMG , could you tell me which the native token, what utilities and benefits does it offer, How do both mentiond tokens differ and where can they be traded ?
The reason for adopting dual tokens is very simple. We think it is the most suitable for the game because the props in the game NFT and Play2Earn token, as our game players increase, inflation cannot be avoided. If a single token is used, it will cause a bad situation. Because it is difficult for a single token to simultaneously undertake the two functions of capturing value and Play2Earn. Therefore, our CMP token is used as a token for governance and value capture, and CMG is used for Play2Earn, and there are many burning scenarios at the same time. Moreover, it is very different from doing traditional games. The essence of doing crypto games is to create a digital nation. You can think that CMP is the gold reserved in our treasury, and CMG is the currency we issue. As an operator, we need to constantly create real player needs in this economy to make the economic system run smoothly!
Q3) In my point of view, CardMonsters is a great gaming project. But, why did team members choose to use nicknames and not photos? so many scammers, how do u convince us that the game is legit? could you tell me more about auditing and platform security?
We use anonymity to avoid some regulatory issues. Regarding whether it is a scam or not, you can follow us for a long time, our partners, the institutions behind us, and the platforms we cooperate with. These will prove that we want to run the project for a long time. A good news, our pre-sale on the 28th will be at binance. In the future, we will gradually announce the investment institutions that support us, and they all have good reputation in the industry. After we have resolved some regulatory issues, we will choose to come to the stage to communicate with everyone.
Q4) the industry has grown and evolved under a model in which players got almost no reward for time spent playing the game. So how do you reward players who spend time on your platform? What kind of benefits does your gaming model offer you?
Some scams do have the situation you mentioned, but we have seen that although the currency price has dropped a lot, players are still active in games such as Axie infinity, Splintland, Thetan arena, and the growth has not stopped. From the perspective of long-term development, whether it is a crypto game or a traditional game, it must have sufficient playability. Earn is important, but fun is more important. We believe that long-term players will have fun and get rewards in our games at the same time.
Q5) how can i play games on CardMonster. as one of the gameing blockchain platforms? Is it required for us to buy your tokens in order to participate in the game? How many tokens do i need to buy in order to play? Is it just accessible for PC. or can it be played on smartphone ?
We will have both mobile and PC versions at the same time. The game needs to be paid. According to our Pre-sale price, the entry threshold is about US$200.
Q6) What is your top 3 things for priorities in 2021? Could you share some plans for the upcoming year?
