we hosted an amazing AMA with Polker Crew on the 29th of November
And here we will put some of the best questions:
Q1. Can you please introduce yourself to our community ?
I am Tanya, an Admin Manager and Social Media Moderator for Polker. I help build and execute social media strategy through competitive research, platform determination, benchmarking, messaging, and audience identification. I moderate all user-generated content in line with the moderation policy for each community. I also deal with queries that come in via our social media accounts and email, tracking them down, and making sure that the issues are resolved quickly and satisfactorily.
Q2. Can you briefly tell us about Polker Crew project ?
Polker.Game is the first blockchain based, Free to Play & Play to Earn, Poker NFT game that uses Unreal Engine 4 for immersive and powerful gameplay while utilizing a provably fair system and TRNG technology. Polker.Game plans to launch on platforms such as iOS, Android, Windows, and streaming platforms with intended support for next-gen VR, with stunning 3D characters, visual effects, and environments.
Our gaming metaverse combines virtual reality with the endless possibilities of blockchain technology. You will be able to enjoy immersive graphics and play among each other within the metaverse, and be able to edit the graphics and create a personalized gaming experience.

Q3. What are the advantages of Your project ?
So I have mentioned our metaverse earlier. We are building our metaverse within Unreal Engine (think Fortnite, Street Fighter 5 graphics…). On top of that, the VR development is already ongoing and should be ready early next year. VR headset owners will never want to leave Polker’s metaverse once in!
Furthermore, our game is based on our True Random Number Generator(TRNG) and Provably Fair System, which is revolutionary. It ensures fairness and trustworthiness in the game itself.
Q4 please tell us about the goal you want to achieve in this year
We have had some important milestones this past few months. Staking (ERC-20) went live in September and will end on December 25, 2021. BSC staking will be available later this quarter.
We have also been recently listed on Bittrex and we are working on additional CEX listing.
Most of all, we have launched our beta on November 11, 2021, and we have just wrapped up our second beta run a few hours ago. We will be resolving the identified bugs. For the next beta run, we will be doing some basic integrations for NFTs.

Q5 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?
Polker was a play on Polkadot and Poker. Polkadot was going to be used, however, Polygon provided a better solution and had their network live quicker. The name still worked out, though.
Polker is made up of diverse, talented individuals from different parts of the globe, with backgrounds in finance, social media, gaming, crypto, dev, architecture, customer service, etc. It is with these different skill sets from the team members that make Polker such a dynamic and solid team, delivering on milestones after milestones. The team’s information is also readily available in our website, should you want to know more.
And here we will put best questions from our members and Polker Crew fans:
Q1 Could you tell us about the main ways to generate in-game income? Is there a possibility that the NFTs obtained will passively generate income to the holder? The only utility of the NFTs will be in-game?
Polker. game is is a strictly non-gambling project. At the heart of our play-to-earn model is our coveted NFT system. We have our standard, rare, and ultra rare NFTs. Players will pit their skill sets for chance to earn them, which have utility within the game. Holders of the NFTs will be rewarded with impressive in-game benefits and abilities which they can then show off to others. Holders with more powerful NFTs and XP will be able to push other peoples NFT dealer out and show off theirs. We will also NFT farming.
Q2) secured and safe from hackers’ attack? What can your project guarantee or promise in terms of security and privacy of users?
Our Smart Contract was fully audited by Beosin. Back in September, the penetration testing and security audit was done by Quinel, a leading independent and internationally accredited testing laboratory/inspection body in the field of gaming, serving the industry for almost 10 years and have laboratories in Italy, Malta, UK and Argentina leveraging international expertise. We knew our game is secure, but we wanted everyone to know it is.
Q3 I noticed on their website that they encourage users of their ecosystem to win medals and collect as many NFT’s as possible, but I’m curious if in order to obtain the medals and collect these NFT’s you must pay some or several commissions, or if it is completely free?
Polker is a free-to-play, and play-to-earn model. It will be available for absolutely anyone to play, for those looking to play a couple of quick hands at a table without wagering any money. You earn play chips per day, and you play more, level up, and gain more levels, you get more play chips per day. You can buy more if you desire and you can also use them to earn small cosmetics. You level is locked at a high end of 30 where you can fold roughly 50 big blinds in a row until you’re out of cards.
For serious poker players or those wanting to access the play-to-earn system, you will need an initial buy-in of PKR. At the lowest level,(approximately $5) this doubles your EXP gain, doubles your play chip gain, allows access to tickets, NFTs, and the tournament game function.
Q4 NFT is considered the next trend so HOT right now of the crypto industry after DeFi. Could you share $PKR opinion about NFT? Where do you see the future evolution of NFT features and capabilities in the next few years?
Well, we believe that NFT gaming is the future of the gaming industry, as NFTs are at center of our play-to-earn system. Collectible content, that allows earners to personalize gaming experience, is an incredible concept that will change the way we will play, and for the better.
Q5 After checking the website, Polker vision & Mission is good. but it needs a large user traffic to be sustainable over time. What is your marketing strategy to increase the validity of your project brand? Are you planning a strategic partnership to level up your project?
We are working on marketing upcoming CEX listing, and have partnered with Twitter influencers and YouTubers with greater following to promote our game and events.
We will also be attending the DCentral Miami conference, one of the biggest blockchain conferences globally and features the very best projects in DeFi and NFTs. The event will be from Nov 30-Dec 1, 2021. Polker NFTs will be displayed in the NFT gallery with other NFTs during the event. The Polker team will also interact with other blockchain metaverses and key players, including Polygon.
Q6.Where can I buy your tokens now, what is the title of your existing contracts, how can I buy them and what are the benefits? Do token holders have the right to participate in project governance? What kind of decisions can they vote on about the project?
We are listed in Uniswap, Pancakeswap, Bitmart, and recently Bittrex. Please note that we are working on additional CEX listing.
Please see addresses below.
Buying guide is available on our website at https://pkr.io/get-pkr/
$PKR is not a governance token.
Q7. I was exploring your website and couldn’t find your roadmap. Do you have one? Can you share it? I am curious to know your plans and strategies for 2021
Ah, 2021 is almost over and looking back, we have delivered important milestones the past few months, and are moving forward with the rest.
For recent milestones, we have released our beta on 11/11/2021 11 AM UTC, and we have just completed our second beta run. The full game with NFTs will be launched first quarter of 2022. VR development is already ongoing and should be ready early next year. Mobile games will be available by second quarter of 2022.
Our current staking pool went live in September and will end on 12/25/2021. BSC staking will be available later this quarter and NFT staking will be available first quarter of 2022.
We have been recently listed with Bittrex and are working on additional CEX listing. For more details on our roadmap, you may visit https://polker.game/about-us/#roadmaps.
Q8. Is this your project for elite investors only, what about others with small money, is it open to everyone?
Is this your project only for elite investors, what about others with small money, is it open to everyone?
Our project s open to everyone. One of our goals is to reduce the barrier to entry that blockchain has requiring technical knowledge right now. We want to be at the forefront of allowing easy access to both crypto, NFTs, gaming, and the metaverse world that we are growing.
We have a vibrant community, and we listen to feedback, since we believe that openness and transparency leads to growth and success for the project and the community.
Q9. Can you list a killer trait or traits of this project that put it ahead of its competitors? What competitive advantage does your business have that you feel most confident about?
Polker has a lot of features – metaverse, 3D Unreal Engine, etc. Personally, I am more excited about the 2 features below, as they are features that other poker games/sites do not have.
Provably Fair System, which uses the potential of the blockchain to provide full transparency in every aspect of gameplay by using our multiple patents granted technology. The player is fully protected against fraud and cheating. We store every gameplay action and value as a hash in a smart contract on the blockchain. By taking the raw values and hashing them, you are able to compare and verify the results independently to prove there was no manipulation.
True Random Number Generator, a provably fair and auditable technology that uses both SHA-256 hashing in combination with blockchain technology. The protocol uses seed words from the users (typically players) combined with a seed word from the PKR protocol. The resulting SHA-256 hash is then used to interact with a smart contract on the blockchain network. The resulting block header from this transaction is used to create a provably fair random number.
So yes, we have great graphics, metaverse, but more than that our game is fair.
Q10. How can I do my research about your project? Do you have any whitepaper released and can you provide me all the social media links and blogs?
Great question as we believe in due diligence and research ourselves. Please refer to our white paper below.
