we hosted an amazing AMA with TUDABirds on the 6th of October

And here we will put some of the best questions:

Q1. Can you introduce yourself to our community?

We have been involved in the crypto/defi space on average for four or five years (+) each, with collective experience across most major chains.

We are a fully self-funded team, working to deliver NFT-powered gaming experiences and earning opportunities to our user base.

I am Daniel (@seveets) CEO and co-founder of tudaBirds).
With me today are my CTO and co-founder Volo (@tudamoonbirds) and Bhagya, our CMO (@BhagyaSethi). Our Chief Bird Officer / art lead is Ishan, who couldn’t join us today.
and our marketing team is lurking here too 🙂

Q2. Can you briefly tell us what is TUDABirds ?

tudaBirds is a green, NFT-driven defi gaming arena, powered by the Polygon blockchain with an emphasis on creating competitions and games – both simple and complex – to be hosted within virtual real estate Game Rooms in the tudaBirds arena.

We offer a very different take from the rest: a user-earning focused defi gaming arena:

  • an arena of social gaming / vast earnings opportunities for users (by adding or creating value, not just from playing games)
  • Virtual gaming rooms using real estate NFTs where users can create / repackage games; other users can earn from promoting
  • A no-burn (no false economies) token
  • 10% of all game revenues redistributed to holders
  • evolving NFB (non-fungible Birds) avatars built as erc1155
  • And a unique (not yet revealed) NFT staking mechanism

Q3. Let’s now talk about the milestones you have achieved so far and about your upcoming plans?

Ok, here we go with a short list

  • tweetPaper and tokenomics published, at https://business.tudabirds.io
  • our first game, Battle200X (smart contract-derived crypto head-to-head prediction battle) .. to show our intent and to demonstrate our capabilities
  • We have all but finalised production of 9000 NFTs of 7 different bird species, ready to drop on October 15, 2021
  • The Chief Bird Officer (CBO) Signature collection is in progress and will be ready for the November 1 release
  • The Arena website is up with 7 virtual rooms (including a Help Library to assist users to get to the Polygon chain / set up their wallets) and of course the Battle200X game
  • Our token sale and NFT sale websites are up and running and our whitelists for both are available, closing on Oct 10 2021
    o $TBIRD token pre-sale whitelist: https://forms.gle/JNXqEx2Us7DBdjMRA

o NFT9K whitelist: https://forms.gle/staczfwpM3M4QLVN6

Our NFT9K drop, scheduled for October 15, is also, like everything else at tudaBirds, not quite common: it is a gamified drop where 10% of the 9000 NFTs will be rewarded with additional drops, ranging from

  • Additional NFTs from the NFT9K drop
  • An NFT from our Chief Bird Officer’s Signature #OpenSea collection
  • A virtual Game Room real-estate NFT or
  • A drop of up to 10,000 $TBIRD tokens

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?

Lots of stories to tell 🙂 tudaBirds… tudaMoon with non-Fungible Birds (NFBs). The main story is the tudaBirds have seen the problems on earth and are looking to evolve, sustainably, to fly to the space station, to the Moon. To Mars and beyond… and to find social ways to keep their human users happy along the way!

To introduce the founders:
Daniel: German-based Canadian with 30+ years across the tech sector, 10+ in FinTech, highly reputed blockchain and token economy architect since 2017

Volo: Ukraine-based tech guru with 4 years architecting and building/delivering both defi and centralised blockchain/crypto financial solutions and full-blown crypto exchanges

Daniel and Volo are supported by a team of tech nomads and artists, all 100% focused on and committed to delivering tudaBirds: most have experience in the crypto and NFT space but, in keeping with the tudaBirds arena theme of earning and learning we have also taken on and are tutoring team members to learn the tricks of the trade… when we are funded they will be employed … and, in any case, we hope to make them employable as well!

We deliver this result by creating a better-than-breeding solution for the birds; they evolve, by means of compound ERC1155 NFTs which users can self-mint (in workshops to be provided within virtual rooms in the tudaBirds arena) and which will include the main Avatar NFTs/ PFPs which users can use tp identify their profiles within the arena. These avatar NFBs will add capability (and re-sale value) when combined with evolution NFTs (ranging from jetpacks to space suits, helmets, boots) etc.

Q5. DeFi is one of the hottest and most sought-after topics in the blockchain space right now. Can you share your opinion on DeFi with us? Do you think DeFi will disrupt the current financial system? What is TUDABirds’s approach to the DeFi sector?

Well, we feel that defi is already – and will continue to disrupt traditional finance… and we have been doing just that over our past years of work in both FinTech and the Crypto space.

The tudaBirds approach is to do so sustainably, using the very green, low-gas Polygon blockchain, taking advantage of its layer2 eth compatibility, particularly with regards to NFTs.

We are actually focusing on disrupting the defi gaming space: our primary focus is, within the tudaBirds arena and powered by our NFT to create value-add and value-create revenue opportunities for our users by providing use cases to investors, collectors, players, builders, game inventors / operators / promoters, across a community.

We are doing this by

  • offering passive revenue shares of 10% of all arena revenues dropped to holders of the $TBIRD token
  • With our unique (not quite yet announced) NFT staking mechanism which will deliver passive earnings to all holders of our NFTs

The other element of our disruption is our approach to user earnings. We feel that users need to be able to earn from doing: from adding and creating value to the community and the arena, rather than just from playing a game.

This is a socially-conscious approach which seeks to educate users with real-world skills such as community and game moderation, promotions and marketing as well as hosting, inventing and customizing games, for fun and for profit.

We will offer NFT building capabilities for users to build and resell NFB avatars and evolution assets to other users as well as a gallery / sale capability for all users to find, buy and sell our NFBs and assets.

And here we will put best questions from our members and TUDABIRDS fans:

Q1) I’m interested to know more about your NFT9K. Can you explain further about the utilities of these NFT9K within your platform? Are they meant to be held as simple collectibles or will they have additional benefits? Also, will you have your own marketplace to sell and buy the NFT?

well, to start with the NFT9K drop is gamified: not only are the tudaBirds NFTs scattered with rarities (and some super rarities) 10% of the drop will be rewarded with additional bonuses

The tudaBirds gamified NFT9K drop is already far beyond your common variety of cute and provocative images. With a sprinkled 10% set of rarities and a randomly-selected 10% of the NFTs receiving bonus airdrops of either:

  • Additional NFTs from the NFT9K drop
  • An NFT from our Chief Bird Officer’s Signature #OpenSea collection
  • A virtual Game Room real-estate NFT or
  • A drop of up to 10,000 $TBIRD tokens

tudaBirds evolve: TudaBirds NFBs will also deliver function and utility as we build out our arena. Arena users will be able to win, swap, and purchase NFT evolutions ranging from spacesuits, helmets, boots through to jetpacks at all levels of rarity.

Evolved tudaBirds will enjoy access to higher game levels and increased rewards as well as exclusive offers in and around the arena. Including early access to new features as they are rolled out, these evolutions will also result in NFBs with increased resale value as users can choose to buy up to increase their capabilities — or just add rare and evolved tudaBirds to their collections.

Our users will be able to self-mint their evolved NFBs by compounding the original birdie with evolution NFTs, which can also include player achievements and experiences marked by rewards, badges and leaderboard placements, and tournament results.

More Earning Opportunities for users: Our planned community of tudaBirds Crafters will be enabled to build rare, unique avatars for sale on the open market to players looking to skip ahead — and for collectors of all birds beautiful within our planned arena NFT workshops, opening a broad new way for our users to earn TBIRD tokens.

oops: forgot to mention:

Unique tudaBirds NFB Staking: And — most exciting of all — an all-new and unique NFT staking mechanism enabling value-add earning capabilities just by holding your collection… but that is a hatched secret still in the nest: more information coming soon!

Q2) Can you list 1-3 killer features of your Project that makes it ahead of its competitors? What is the competitive advantage your platform has that you feel most confident about?

1.. the non-fungible birds and the opportunities listed above … not to mention that EVERY single NFT will have function and utility within the tudaBirds defi gaming arena

2.. green, sustainable and cheap: we are on the highly green Polygon blockchain (and working directly with the team at Polygon Studios)
Polygon is GREAT for our users: extraordinarily low gas fees and direct connection to OpenSea and other compatible NFT marketplaces

  1. A gaming arena where users can earn … not just by playing (and holding … since ALL $TBIRD holders share 10% of all game revenues(!!)
    also with opportunities to host games (in our coming-soon virtual real estate Gaming Rooms) and to promote, moderate and invent new games (coming in the next phases of the arena)

i could probably list a few more but you said 3 so ….

Q3) Where can I buy tokens now? What are your contracts, and how can I buy them and what are the benefits?

our whitelists are now open for $TBIRD private and public pre-sale
And for the NFT9K drop

our token pre-sale whitelist is here : https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSfW0TizhseRHmkxNzbq_JROkCSMIIvSqsAIUTHIDorZzGtBbQ/viewform

the Presale Website: sale.tudabirds.io

Each of these pages is a Virtual room within the tudaBirds arena

oh… and you can ‘read all about it’ here on our Medium https://tudabirds.medium.com/tudabirds-pre-sale-tbird-and-nft9k-whitelist-are-hatched-b831b77fedc0

Q4) Liquidity mining is the best way to generate passive income. Liquidity funds are very important for decentralized exchanges and this is exactly one of the key advantages that you will have with TubaBirds. What passive income strategies does TubaBirds offer to users?

With a tech team well-versed in defi we will deliver a staking/farming mechanism for holders.
all team / presale investor vested tokens will be staked to improved liquidity…

we also have – as mentioned above – a unique (soon to be unveiled and up and running before December 1) a unique NFT stake&earn mechanism

All of that, combined with our passive earnings for all $TBIRD holders… well, we think it makes for a pretty interesting offer

Q5) There’s still this bias that playing games is a waste of time, or at least it’s not a decent job. Especially in India. Most parents want their kid to be an Engineer or a Doctor, and super against their kids playing games. How do you think we can fight the bias?

that is a GREAT question ,.. and you might recall it was in the top 3 special things about tudaBirds!

A gaming arena where users can earn … not just by playing (and holding … since ALL $TBIRD holders share 10% of all game revenues(!!)
but also with opportunities to host games (in our coming-soon virtual real estate Gaming Rooms) and to promote, moderate and invent new games (coming in the next phases of the arena)

We will rely on our community to: moderate (for earnings) games run / invented by users and partners … to ensure that they suit community standards

Game room owners and operators will be able to invite users to act as promoters for their games (for a share of the game room revenue)

THIS is a big thing to us: it is great that many are earning food for their tables by playing games … and of course you can earn at tudaBirds that way – and by holding our tokens and NFTs

we feel that this is also an opportunity to not only provide earnings and income – but also teach skills…

Our own marketing team is an example: they are learning proper promotion skills across social media… CTO, CMO and myself are coaching and advising them:

we hope that this, for our team and our users, actually provides employment and earning skills both in the tudaBirds arena (as we build and grow: it is not all happening on day 1!) but beyond: the crypto world offers great opportunities and we hope to share those skills and give people pride in their earnings

Q6) The questions i saw flash by re buying the tokens / NFTs

… the easy answer is to hit our whitelists
the addresses are above, I believe the friendly mods here at CryptoTitans have pinned them but just in case:

token whitelist https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSfW0TizhseRHmkxNzbq_JROkCSMIIvSqsAIUTHIDorZzGtBbQ/viewform
Presale Website: sale.tudabirds.io
TweetPaper and ICO: business.tudabirds.io

and for the NFTs
NFT Preview Website: tudabirds.io/lobby/nft9k-preview/
NFT Sale site: nft9k.tudabirds.io (opens October 15, 2021)
whitelist at https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSfnBdCaBarjRg-jRl5lzEPdM5SkLujg1CDHMJuiW1IiTAiKRQ/viewform

so the next question i saw that needs a response was related to burning tokens

the simple answer is: NO. We are not creating a false economy or planning to fake-prop prices with burns
like I said above, 10% of ALL games revenues – from tudaBirds hosted games, from partner games & from users in virtual game rooms)
proportionally across all $TBIRD holders

We are not burning because we have a real business model. with real revenues.
and we don’t have a silly quadrillion-type number of tokens.

Q7) Is your Project a local and a global project. How many People do you have for non english user? Can anyone uses your services from anywhere in the world.Is there are any restrictions of using your service?

we are global .. this is defi and the internet.
but we are only getting started and, as we move forward, will create (on demand) localised channels in the languages demanded by our users.

Our first move is our Chinese language channel — but we are WIDE OPEN to volunteers to get involved (and earn as we go forward) .. our team doesn’t have those international language capabilities but our user base will

Q8) Have you being audited ? Have not heard you talk about that security of funds is what every investor craves for and plans to escape incase of insecurity if funds,scams and rug pulls ? How strongly built are your security put in place?

Not yet .. but it is in progress.
Our contracts, as required, will be available on github in the interim and we have already engaged with an audit firm: we expect to execute our audit and publish the results in the next weeks.

Note, though, that our CTO is himself a skilled solidity man and our team has created 10+ defi systems, across chains, for clients in the past … and that same CTO is himself an accredited auditor.

We have strong confidence but, in order to get that same confidence to our users, we do intend to have 3rd party audit results published (in the near future)

Q9) Can you explain, which one is your top priority? Security, Product, Partnership, or Token price?

easy answer: all of the above.
Security of our user funds is paramount

Product .. we need to drive and create more opportunities for players to compete: the tudaBirds arena is not just an arena where you watch players… it is a place for competition and our plans are games that are simple and fun — along with some complicated AR/3d type stuff on the drawing board – and that makes product an important element

Partnership: we plan partnerships with game providers to deliver more of those opportunities to our users – and we are constantly exploring opportunities to find ways to help us grow …

which brings us to the token: liquidity, staking, team commitment and opportunities to play and earn: those are the factors that will sustain and drive growth in the TBIRD token… funds raised from sales will be applied to development of new games, new partnerships, new capabilities – and a HUGE push on marketing and community growth.
We are not just selling a bunch of cute tudaBirds NFTs… we are creating an environment where those NFTs have function and utility…

non Fungible birds: these are not standard NFTs. tudaBirds NFTs are built as erc1155 compound NFTs which, as they evolve your avatar. open doors, provide opportunities such as early access to new games (and special drops like raffles and tournament tickets)

the arenaBet system which will be unveiled in the next phase of the arena, will enable shared leaderboards, betting on other players and a huge set of capabilities and features (not yet revealed) that are the things that set tudaBirds apart

(they are only not revealed, yet, because we are protecting the value of your tokens by not giving away the stellar ideas that our team has come up with)

Our current (first) game … at https://battle200x.tudabirds.io is a head to head game that is written DIRECT to the blockchain… it is a smart-contract driven game. … demonstrating our abilities and our intent

Q10) How can users stay updated with this project? Are there channels, including local communities where users can get the latest updates??

we have a great and growing discord community and telegram group … and presence across all social media.
For convenience, here is our linktree
