IslandSwap and OKC AMA Recap
On December 24th, the COO of IslandSwap, Ashley, joined a live Ask Me Anything session on the official OKC Telegram channel and answered questions from the OKC team.
The purpose of the event was to introduce IslandSwap to the OKC Community.
The following is a recap of the AMA.
We’ve been heard a lot about IslandSwap, can you please introduce it?
Ashley: IslandSwap is a turn-based metaverse NFT game that combines DeFi&GameFi. The P2E (Play to Earn) economic mode closely connects players to the game. IslandSwap’s vision is for each player to create their own world in IslandSwap where ISL is the governance token, and island, hero, prop NFT is the manifestation of assets.
Islandswap ecology is DeFi&GameFi, can you tell us how it is combined?
Ashley: Islandswap’s gameplay includes simulation game mode, where players can build their own island, improve the island’s economic level, and combat technology. It’s also a bit similar to the popular game in 2009 — “stealing vegetables”. If you beat others, his capacity resources will belong to you, and the stronger you are, the higher capacity your island has. Of course, if you don’t improve yourself in ATK and DEF, the resources of your island will be plundered by others.
Besides this, the DeFi part of the game is also unique. NFT mystery box is not only used in the game, but also in DEX to mine directly. The function meets the needs of players and DeFi miners. At the same time, 50% of the sales amount of mystery box goes into the prize pool and will be used for token output of world BOSS and alliance BOSS, the other 50% will be burned to ensure deflation logic. and the prize pool address will be open and transparent. In addition, 40% of the amount for NFT will be used for the lottery, another 40% will be in the prize pool, and 20% will be burned. We guarantee the long-term playability and profitability of the game.
Here are our NFT mystery boxes:
Above is the basic gameplay, but the game’s content is very abundant, it cannot be experienced just by words and images. So let’s explore the wonderful world together after the official launch, enjoy the pleasure of play to earn!
Can you tell us why the IslandSwap team chose to make a blockchain game? And the composition of your team?
Ashley: We have an experienced team, many of our employees have been working in cryptocurrencies for over 3 years and have been involved in a number of crypto projects (and CEXes, DEXes, NFT-Marketplaces). Secondly, when NFT became hot, we analyze that NFT games will definitely become a new hot spot because good games themselves have great charm. The players will be willing to invest time and energy to enjoy the game. Coupled with the attribute of P2E (Play to Earn) in this process, it is inevitable to spark the extreme craze.
How does IslandSwap distinguish itself from other blockchain games?
Ashley: IslandSwap’s strength is that its UI and NFT design are immersive, and the metaverse theme itself is currently hot. Islandswap is a PVP&PVE&island development game, users will drive the development of the world view, IslandSwap team and the users can make real-time interaction. Part of the game is developed with the Unity3D engine, and I believe it is absolutely a leading project in the current chain game market.
I will introduce IslandSwap’s advantages from the following dimensions:
First of all, from the perspective of development, the game is developed with Unity3D engine, IslandSwap’s strength is that its UI and NFT design are immersive, and the metaverse theme itself is currently hot. Islandswap is a PVP&PVE&island development game, users will drive the development of the world view, IslandSwap team and the users can make real-time interaction. Part of the game is developed with the Unity3D engine, and I believe it is absolutely a leading project in the current chain game market. which I believe is definitely leading in the current chain game market. Islandswap is not a simple page game, the DEX ecological part of IslandSwap meets the needs of both players and DeFi miners so that users can not only make money in the game but also mining to earn income anytime and anywhere.
Secondly, from the perspective of production, even for those who have not participated in the closed beta, they can see from our concept video that the game is beautifully crafted, UI and NFT are well designed to give users an immersive experience of the metaverse concept.
In terms of the game’s playability, Islandswap is a PVP&PVE& island cultivation game.
Users will drive the development of the world view, and the team will interact with users in real-time. Of course, in addition to the playability, I believe that players are also concerned about our economic model. We studied lots of excellent games and created a great mining mechanism to ensure the benefits of all the players. Also, IslandSwap has a shorter payoff period, and OKC also helps to achieve low investment and high return with its low handling fee.
Finally, community governance is where IslandSwap focuses most. We adopt the form of DAO organization. In the future, DAO members can decide what IP to use for hero, island, and prop NFT. They can also conduct joint activities with other organizations so that DAO members can participate in IslandSwap’s construction.
Can you walk us through IslandSwap’s financing condition and tokenomics?
Ashley: At present, many players are very concerned about how to buy ISL and NFT blind boxes, here we officially announce: there is no private sale or IDO for IslandSwap. We will do a fair launch at the time of the official launch. Please be tuned and get ready. The potential for ISL growth in NFT and the gaming ecosystem is quite considerable.
ISL is the governance token in Islandmeta which connects all the members in the IslandSwap Community. And the owners of ISL will be rewarded if they stake it, play games, and take part in crucial votes about governance. We promise the 100% destruction of all ISL token fees in the game to support ISL’s deflationary logic. Islandswap will use ISL as its value token to gradually improve the functionality and ecological content of the platform to empower participants and builders and provide a safe and stable environment for all users.
10 billion ISL will be distributed as follows:
As can be seen, 40% of ISL tokens can be obtained in the game. It is a very large proportion. And our game is in the single-coin mode, which will enable more for ISL, thus reducing part of the selling pressure in the game market.
More and more people are getting interested in IslandSwap. Marketing is quite important for the development of an excellent game. What about your marketing strategies?
Ashley: We have a team dedicated to working on marketing and partnerships. We are currently negotiating with many YouTube, Twitter, Bilibili influencers to play our games and give feedback in the closed beta. We have made an Airdrop event and received more than 45,000 addresses. At the same time, we have reached a cooperation with the Token Pocket to launch a joint Christmas NFT mystery box airdrop around Dec 28th. At that time, ISL tokens worth 5000 USDT and NFT mystery boxes worth 5000 USDT will be given away. So please don’t miss the event.
And of course, we are always on the lookout for good AMA groups where we can tell our story. Also, we are open to various partnerships which are still in the negotiation because we need to follow our tokenomics strictly to avoid miscalculation in the future.
This is just about the game, and we’re interested in the whole career path of the game. Can you share the roadmap of IslandSwap with us?
Ashley: The mainnet launch will be around December 28th, and most functions of the current test chain will also be launched simultaneously. Next January, our team will focus on improving the art, increasing the types of heroes and props, and launching the alliance system. In February, we will focus on the achievement system, including island rankings, skills of heroes, random rewards, adventure modes, and more. The focus of March is PVP, including the battle between players, the battle between groups, and alliance war, sea conquest championship, island conquest battle, as well as island farm, crop system, fishing, and other forms of gameplay, followed by cross-chain and the introduction of DAO system, and a referendum will be held on all major issues of the project.
The short-term plan is more about optimizing the game, the DEX functionality, and UI, and at the same time, studying more gameplay. In long term, we would focus on the playability of the game, promote the cycle of more healthy ecological liquidity, bring in more ecological energy, improve user experience, and continuously optimize the game community autonomy. We hope to build a decentralized autonomous chain game ecology of IslandSwap, and we look forward to your joint efforts with us.
Can you walk us through IslandSwap’s current partners? And are there any major partners in the future?
Ashley: Yes, we have established partnerships with Token Pocket, Bitkeep, Chainge, Coinhub, HECO, SIL Finance, ONTO Wallet, OneCash, WeBill, OKEX-NFT. They’ve been helping us in terms of marketing, advising on strategy, technology advice… We also received many other encouraging propositions. And more partners will be announced soon.
I believe that the players are also concerned about the security of the game. Many projects are already at risk of being hacked as we know, so we paid great effort to ensure safety. We have partnered with Certik and OKLink to audit our smart contracts to ensure the highest safety of user assets. If anyone gets interested, please view the audit files in our Gitbook, stay tuned, and join our official group to have the latest info.
As we all know, IslandSwap runs on OKC. Will it work with OKEx later?
Ashley: As a game on OKC, we really hope to have in-depth cooperation with OKC for a long period.
Our operation team is also in constant communication with OKEx. We believe that we will have closer cooperation with OKC and OKX in the future.
