Introduction

David — Seascape Founder,
Hey everyone, I’m David, founder and creative director of the Seascape Network. I’ve been a game developer for the last decade working in studios such as Paradox Interactive, mainly working on historical strategy games. I started getting involved in blockchain in 2016, first as an investor and later as the creator of BLOCKLORDS, which was the first blockchain strategy game. Since then, we’ve received funding and grants from many major blockchain institutions and protocols, and we are ready to take the next step on our journey by developing the Seascape Network, a game platform designed around the DeFi and NFT economies!

Nicky,
Greetings all, I’m Nicky. Passionate about games and stepped into the Gaming industry in 2014. Experience at established Chinese game studios such as Yoozoo, Forgame and Moonton. Worked as a project manager of <League of Angels>, which won the ‘BEST FACEBOOK GAME’ in 2014. It was a huge success and led to a very good market performance. Also worked as a designer and operation team leader on <Liberators>, a WW2 strategy game that also won the ‘BEST FACEBOOK GAME’ in 2016.
Currently leading development of BLOCKLORDS, an innovative medieval grand strategy blockchain game. And also Co-founder and COO of Seascape Network. Personally I got into crypto because of CryptoKitties. Its success also gives me inspiration about combining the games with blockchain technology, allowing “play and earn” to become the next wave in the industry.

Q. Can you provide a simple description Seascape? How did you get idea build Seascape?

David — Seascape Founder,
Seascape Network is a game platform designed around the Defi and NFT economies!

With Seascape, we plan to change the DeFi gaming world forever. By releasing a clear and well-documented set of SDKs, we plan to make game developers be able to tokenize their projects in a much clearer and easier way than anything that is currently available. Our past experience releasing games on multiple chains makes us experts in this matter.

Having worked with most top 20 chains out on the market, we can say with confidence that most developer tools for blockchains are painfully inadequate. There is a huge learning curve for any given smart contract protocol, and the developer tools and environments are incredibly hard to set up. This is the main reason why ethereum is so popular, because other chains are basically impossible to work with. This is where we got our original ideas.

Q. What are the advantages of Seascape? How is Seascape better than other platforms? What makes it unique compared to competitors?

Nicky,
You already know that Seascape Network is a game platform designed around the Defi and NFT economies!

As me and my team were working on BLOCKLORDS, which is a very ambitious blockchain strategy game, we started noticing a lot of problem with most protocols and the sdks they provided to game developers, which made development of successful and scalable dapps almost impossible for small teams.

As we improved our project management processes and workflow, as well as with our increased experience in smart contracts, we decided we could develop a platform ourselves and offer the tools to other game devs to access the world of blockchain.

This, along with our excitement about DeFi and the added liquidity it provides to small projects, made us take the leap and go from developing one game to a whole platform instead!

Q. About $CROWNS token, can you explain about the real utility of $CROWNS token in Seascape ecosystem?

David — Seascape Founder,
Crowns are the official token of the Seascape Network. We’ve actually written a number of articles discussing these in detail, but to put it succintly:

• Buy Games and Services on the Scape Store
• Stake in Seascape Defi to earn competitive yields
• Mint and Trade Seascape standard NFT
• Create PCC (player created coins) backed by Crowns
• Validate the Seascape Network and secured the Seascape Chain
• Trade in Exchanges and profit your time spending in Seascape

We have written quite a bit about these, because they’re pretty important and we’re constantly adding more to this. Check out these links for more info:

Q. Could you please tell us more about the Seascape Features?

Nicky,
I’ll say build around the Defi and NFT economies is our biggest feature.

DeFi is a revolutionary advancement not only to the blockchain industry, but to worldwide finance in general. Giving everyone the power to use their assets as collateral to earn interest and take loans is something that has been kept away from too many and has kept wealth locked away for those who are closest to the money printer.

Personally I think we are going to see a further leap in the gamification of finance, which will in turn be powered by DeFi. This is why we have decided to build an entire game platform around DeFi and NFT mechanics. By allowing users to collaterize and earn from their in-game assets, we create an ecosystem where the user can profit just as much as the developer. Our goal is to turn theory into practice. This is the true power of DeFi!

So one example will be in our DeFi game 1, you can stake LP token and earn $Crowns and get a free Seascape NFT, then in another game, we will allow player to stake Seascape NFT to earn more $Crowns. Imagine later in BLOCKLORDS you can lend your NFT swords to earn some crypto. Thats gonna be very powerful insentive for the players.

TWITTER QUESTIONS

Q.1. Seeing the announcement that the Seascape channel has collaborated with MakerDAO, what are the goals and objectives in the cooperation otherwise knows as SHO ? Will there be big news or developments in the Seascape project in building the ecosystem in collaboration with MakerDAO?

David — Seascape Founder,
This is an excellent and timely question! We’re super excited to announce that we’re going to be conducting our first ever Strong Holder Offering with DaoMaker. Basically, it is a public sale that is refundable if in the coming 6 months the price falls below 20% of the original public sale price. In my opinion this is a great way to offer insurance to early investors to protect against unreliable projects. Luckily, we are very reliable and confident that this will not be invoked. More details about the SHO can be read on the DAO Maker pages.

Q2. Seascape has done many ama sessions, but you never explained the origins of your name and logo, so why Seascape, Which is the relationship Between It and the DeFi space?

Nicky,
Actually, it’s a bit metaphorical and sentimental. The Seascape is meant to represent the uncharted potential of gaming across the vast blockchain ocean. We aim to be a wave of DeFi sweeping across the vastness of the world. To see a beautiful seascape is to be in awe of its majesty and wonder. It’s also to see limitless possibilities. We want to bring that beauty to our users. It might sound kind of cheesy, but that’s what it is.

David — Seascape Founder,
Yeah, it’s meant to sort of come from the heart. And we hope to enjoy the cool breeze of the coming wave of DeFi!

Q.3. I read on twitter that Seascape is also building a mobile version. What are the most anticipated features of the mobile version? and when is the mobile version expected to be released?

David — Seascape Founder,
This is also a pretty relevant question. In the beginning especially, Hardware requirements should be fairly low, but it depends more on games themselves rather than blockchain interaction. As a general rule of thumb, specs and requirements work the same for traditional games as they do for blockchain games. Our platform will be accessible by web browser and mobile and we want to make sure that all kinds devices should be compatible. We are also preparing some mobile only games that will eventually be ported to browser. Of course, in the future, we might have some heavier, PC-only games, but for now we’re sticking with multi-platform products for the time being.
So, long story short, we’re going to be pretty standard across platforms. But as we expand, we’ll of course let our users know the specs and how best to interact.

Q4. I could not find information about your team on your Seascape Network website. Due to fraud incidents, Investors care about the background of their team members. Why are your team members private, won’t that hurt you?

David — Seascape Founder,
So right now we’re working on our brand new official page which will have all of our products, our history, our lightpaper, our github, and all of the information pertaining to us and our background. But right now, you’re right, it’s not in a single, centralized location. Our identities are far from secret, however. In fact, our identities are what we think are one of the biggest selling points for our ability to execute our vision!

We have strong backgrounds in traditional gaming, at tradition studios, working with everything from mobile games to AAA titles. Nicky and I are the cofounders and we actually met working at Yoozoo games — which you might have seen a bit in the news recently. But actually, lemme share with you guys a few images pertaining to our pedigree

Q5. The NFT Brawl Game will be the main way or method to MINT NFTs into Seascape, but can you explain the process of minting? What is needed to create a NFT with you?

Nicky,
As previously mentioned, the NFTs will be minted directly by you users in the NFT BRAWL game. In this game, player can spend $Crowns (minimum 5 $Crowns) to mint Seascape NFT. The more you spend, the higher chance to get a better quality. We have 5 quality for our Gen-0 NFTs: Common, Special, Rare, Epic and Legendary. Better quality will have better power in later games.

This will be the main way of minting the tokens and anyone can do it when we have game events running live. Those who mint the NFTs will be able to sell them on Opensea or other exchanges if they wish, or stake them directly in the STAKING SALOON game if they prefer to get the CWS rewards themselves.

A sneak peek here.😆Never shared in other group BTW, you guys are the first one the see this screenshoot.

TELEGRAM QUESTIONS

Q1. @KevSalom

Within your documentation, the player-created currency (PCC) term stands out many times. Can you explain to us what exactly these currencies are and what function they have within BLOCKLORDS?

Nicky,
Player-Created-Coins will be a way for users and game developers to create their own in-game currencies that can then be distributed to players or allies within contained ecosystems. Working in a similar way as MakerDAO and the DAI stablecoin, each PCC will be backed by Crowns, and redeemable at any time, but will also grant community members to freedom to create a coin with their own supply amount that can be used in various purposes.

Q2. @rahuljayaraj789

Can you list some of the benefits for long term holders of $CROWN tokens?

David — Seascape Founder,
This is an excellent, excellent question. For starters let me say this much: HOLDING ON TO CROWNS IS A VERY GOOD IDEA!

The Paywave function nested in our smart contract will incentivize holders since they will see passive income simply from owning the tokens.

The Paywave is unique in nature because it is the first token mechanic that truly makes the holders owners of the gaming platform they are using. Because so few tokenized game projects actually have games on their platforms, they also have no sinks that will take away tokens from the supply. The first Paywave will not be triggered until a significant portion of the supply has been spent in-game as well, so it will serve as a sync for extra tokens in the early days of the token’s launch.

In addition, we will be adding new games constantly to the platform, which will of course require tokens. Holding on to them means not only having passive income, but having the ability to immediately jump onto and enjoy new games as they are released.

Q3. @Orrangelp

From where I can buy Seascape token? Currently is it listed on any exchange?

Nicky,
Our token is not launched yet. Now you can pay attention on DAO Maker Strong Holder Offering, otherwise known as SHO.

For this project, we are working together with DAO Maker, a leading accelerator focused on DeFi projects.

This is a huge opportunity for early adopters of the Seascape Network to demonstrate their interest, help build it from the ground up, and be handsomely rewarded for having done so!

There will be a series of rounds and rewards, all detailed on the Seascape DaoMaker page. Stay tuned to our social media for more information!

Announcement Channel: @seascapenetworknews

After the TGE, you can buy our token on Uniswap right away. And we have plan to launch on many major exchanges. A great news I want to share is that Binance has become the latest investor.

Q4. @Orrangelp

Can you explain how is your Tokenomics Distribution? How many seascape tokens Will be minted ? And How many tokens Will be locked by the team?

David — Seascape Founder,
So while we can’t get too deep into that, I can tell you a bit that hopefully will answer the question. There’s a delicate waltz between Crowns, our universal token, and NFTs. Through our DeFi games, players will be able to stake and earn rewards on their NFTs, but claiming a staked NFT for rewards will have consequences (staked NFTs will be burned when players claim the CWS rewards). Here’s an image outlining out tokenomics. I hope that clears things up a bit.

Q5. @amybroww

Actually i am interested with Seascape staking program. How is the calculation reward from stake? and is there any minimum price to join your stake program?

David — Seascape Founder,
For example, our first DeFi will be launched immediately after we launch our token, which will happen soon. It will be all around yield farming. There won’t be a minimum prize. So matter how little you put forth, you are guaranteed to win something. What you win will be based on our APY rates. And we are focused on having good APY. This principle stretches across the Seascape platform. No minimum for entry, but rewards will be in proportion to prizes. And a probability chart will be included and openly available to all participants.

Thank you for trusting Infinity Chain Club as the organizer of the event today, hopefully everyone can understand about SEASCAPE.

Join our Telegram Group and you can talk directly with other Communities and enjoy some of the events that we created. We are always here to support.
