Welcome to another AMA Cradians!
This was only the second AMA of the year and so much has happened already. We have seen lots of good questions in the community and took time to address as many as we could so here is the recap of the Days AMA.
DOES A HIGH DRAGONTAR RARITY HAVE AN ADVANTAGE IN ‘NO FISHING’ MINI GAME OR CRADLES?
This will be supported in stages. First, we will let our Dragontar owners test the game and give us their feedback. Based on the feedback, we will carry out some slight modifications on the system, and continuously test on the NoFishing mini game.
After that stage, in the official version of the mini game, if a user has an SR Dragontar, they will not have a faster speed on fishing. But rather, since this is a battle game, average players will not have a 100 percent chance of catching a fish. Keep an eye out for the watchman!
CAN EVERYONE JOIN THE MINI GAME TEST NET?
We are still considering this, but most likely we will let everyone join testnet to check out the style of the game and also help search for bugs. NoFishing leaks will be released soon and don’t forget Cradles is still on track. We will be starting the internal test soon where the investors and streamers try it out. Cradles will show the world what a real blockchain metaverse can do.
The market drop does not discourage us and might be a good thing right now. There are GameFi copycats everywhere and market dumps help shake out the sub par projects and let the real value shine through. Short term GameFi projects provide games that users ‘quit fast.’ Cradles is aiming for longevity.
WHEN WILL THE DRAGONTAR SALE END AND IS THERE A CAP ON TOTAL SUPPLY?
This week the current Dragontar sales round ends. There is no limit on Dragontars, only components are limited edition. New limited edition hats, only 30 available, are on the way and some free component giveaways as well. These hats are specially made for the season and we think the community will be pleased.
That is the spirit of the Dragontar, endless upgrades and endless updates available. We encourage the community to sell components instead of the Dragontar to begin to understand the value of EIP3664.
If you find any trouble listing your components, just let us know in Discord!
CAN I USE LEDGER TO LOG INTO THE MAIN GAME?
Yes, you can do this. Also we will release a launcher for the games, especially for NoFishing and Cradles. I think we should start referring to the games by name rather than mini-game and main game since they do have names!
IS THERE A LENDING MECHANISM, LIKE THE SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAMS OF OTHER GAMES?
The Dragontars are not that expensive, only the components will be expensive. If you are playing Axie, sure you might need this option, but not in Cradles.
ARE MY AVATARS IN THE MAIN GAME NFTS? IF SO, CAN THESE BE UPGRADED WITH SKILLS AND STRENGTHS?
Yes, users can definitely do that. Users can view the game as an MMO open world with blockchain technology instead of just a Play-To-Earn game. While there are P2E mechanisms, in Cradles, it’s more important to figure out how to simply survive in the beginning.
Users first learn how to live, hunt, find NPCs to learn skills, upgrade themselves, then upgrade their weapons. Once those skills are mastered, then the player learns how to earn doing whatever they want in the game. Users should seek out the best city-state for them and join in to see how P2E has been upgraded to PlayAndEarn.
WHAT ARE THE USE CASES OF CRDS?
CRDS is used for staking. The team focuses on tokens, instead of NFTs. We will let the players create NFTs in the game. CRDS can be used to enhance the power of NFTs through our unique staking mechanism that allows CRDS holders to stake into an NFT. CRDS will be used to develop LPs so users can exchange their tokens as well.
We have three types of utilities for CRDS: Buy, Stake, and Burn. These are like events that occur within the game and we will randomly open up the event for users to make contributions to the game.
We raised enough funds for our team to develop the game, but in the future Cradles will be improved by the community making contributions to the game and through the use of the tokens.
WHAT IS THE DRAGONTAR BREEDING MECHANISM THAT IS UNDER DEVELOPMENT?
Well first and foremost, we provided upgradable NFTs. As for breeding, we are still coding on that mechanism. In short, if a user is holding the same body parts on a Dragontar, and places them into a breed machine, they will get an extra Dragontar.
But we are still working on the mechanism, and developing breeding rules. But for now, No Fishing is the first priority. You might need to wait for some time for the breeding website release.
WHEN WILL THE CRADLES NFT MARKETPLACE BE RELEASED?
The NFT Marketplace is still under development. We’ve added new features like allowing players to create their own 3664 NFTs. Users will be able to draw the components and main bodies and just by using the website to publish the NFT series they will be creating combinable NFTs.
The vision is for Metacore to be an all in one NFT center instead of simply a Cradles marketplace. We named it Meta + Core for a reason, and this will be a central hub for NFTs across the metaverse.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF GRINDING HARD IN THE GAMES?
Why do gamers grind hard in WoW, Maplestory, or Black Desert? It is fun that is why. Soon as a game adds crypto, gamers are concerned with profits. If a user is grinding in Cradles, they can create their own NFTs and sell them to others. Others will buy them because they enjoy the game and need help finishing tasks.
Traditional gamers will be in Cradles. They will create more demand for Cradles NFTs and the P2E players enrich the game and the NFT market with their own creations.
· Traditional Games Company = Company Sells props > Players buy
· Old crypto games = Team Sells NFTs > Players buy
· New: Cradles P2E Players = Users Create NFTs > Traditional Players Buy
There will be a certain amount of traditional gamers joining the game. Cradles will give the right to sell NFTs to the P2E players so they can make a sustainable income. This will stop gamers from racing to the game to make profit and quit, this game is meant to be played and enjoyed. We are dropping the standard NFTs that are bought and sold for profit alone. GameFi is dying because crypto gamers are focused on flipping and making profit only. We will solve that.
WILL CRADLES BE ABLE TO HANDLE MILLIONS OF PLAYERS?
Cradles will be out in the middle of this year and yes, it will be able to handle millions of players.
WHEN DOES THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE CRADLES SIDE CHAIN START?
We haven’t set an exact time for starting it. We are planning for one chain first, then mapping the data into multiple chains. Then we will develop a chain aggregator to make every platform’s players able to join Cradles easily.
WHEN WILL AMAs IN COLLABORATION WITH OTHER COMMUNITIES TAKE PLACE?
We are planning that soon, hopefully it takes place this month. We will prepare for the next round of AMAs with in-game videos and the promotional graphics that will be needed for other communities to see the value of joining us.
Great! Thanks guys for the attendance!
