AMA Recap — Froyo Games
The session of AMA ( Ask Me Anything ) with Froyo Games was conducted on 5 th Jan 2022 at 4:30 PM IST (11 AM UTC) and lasted for 1 hour.
Katz from Froyo Games has joined us for this AMA session.
Please tell us about yourself and the team working on Froyo.Games?
Well hello! I’m Pochi, the resident llama here at Froyo Games.
So, our team may be anonymous but we have serious backing from serious investors like Bigcoin Capital, GameFi, Newman Capital and of course our main investor, Animoca Brands — who needs no introduction
The team here at Froyo Games is made up of people from many walks of life who have one thing in common — we’re passionate about games. We’ve experienced game makers and developers and we’re here to build our new home in the metaverse.
What is Froyo.Games? Please provide a detailed introduction.
That’s a short question, I don’t think there’s a short way to answer it, lol
For starters, Froyo Games is a game platform for blockchain and metaverse gaming. Think of it as Steam or Epic Games for the blockchain.
When we look at the world of blockchain gaming today so many games are like little islands — stranded out in a wide ocean of blockchain dapps. On their own, they’re lots of fun but outside of that, their digital assets don’t have much utility.
We love our fellow game developers and as game makers ourselves, we know what developers want. That’s why we will be releasing as SDK that any game developer will be able to comfortably use from the independent developer all the way up to AAA game studios. This will allow them to integrate the blockchain and Froyo platform into their games with little friction and no need to go back to school to learn another programming language.
The Froyoverse isn’t just a private exclusive party either. We aim to become a cross-chain platform where players can bring their own NFTs into our metaverse to enjoy what Froyo has to offer.
You know, when people keep asking the question about “how will NFTs revolutionise gaming?” or “Why do games need NFT?”
we want to make Froyo Games the best answer to that question
As Froyo Games is a game platform we would like to know which games are currently lined up for launch? Also Can you share info about the tokenomics distribution?
We have games already available for you to play! You can check out Claw Stars, one of Google Play’s Best Pick Up and Play games, available for Android and iOS. We have been working closely with the developers of the game to have them integrate Froyo NFTs. You’ll soon see them start appearing in the game, which you can already download today.
Claw Stars is quite fun as it is already, I can’t wait for it to get so much more exciting with NFTs!
We also have CryptantCrab, a blockchain-based collectable game where you breed and battle mutant crabs to see who’s the best in the arena. We’re excited to announce that Froyo Games will be facilitating the transition of CryptantCrab from the currently overcrowded ETH blockchain to the Binance Smart Chain.
If you wanted to play it before this but were afraid of the ridiculous gas fees, you’ll soon get to play for just a fraction of the fees.
Those are among the first games that will be coming to Froyo really soon
However, at the end of the day, our main product is the Froyo Games platform. While we will have games of our own, we can’t wait to see what other game makers can do with the tools we make available to them. We invite you to come along on that journey with us.
Our tokenomics will be published in full soon. We will have multiple staking options which include ve-mechanism staking and staking to participate in the Froyo Games Publisher Network where you can earn tokens that will be featured in upcoming games on the Froyo platform as well as early access to new content so that you can get a head start in our newest games.
As for our TGE you’ll have to stay tuned to our Twitter at @realfroyogames and our website at https://froyo.games to find out more. The team is really hard at work on this as we speak and we can’t wait to show you what we have planned. I wanna say more but my boss won’t let me! All I can mention is that the TGE will take place later this month. ;)
Are you planning to implement play to earn mechanism? What are the current & Future Roadmap Targets of Froyo Games?
Play-to-earn is super duper important to us here at Froyo. We don’t believe in making anyone feel left out and that’s why we implement Play-to-Earn mechanics in the games we release on the platform. We want to make it such that whether you started off with an empty wallet or a whale’s share of crypto, you’ll still be able to enjoy what the platform has to offer and also be able to play along with anyone on the platform.
Froyo’s philosophy is simple. When you put aside tokenomics, finance and all that, we want to give players the choice to play the way they want to play, the power to own what they earn in the games they play and the freedom to choose what they want to do with their items and tokens.
Later this month will be our TGE and we will be launching our new website later this week where you can register your wallets. We have a jam-packed year ahead as we move to implement multi-chain integrations with our NFT marketplace and collaborations with popular artists, brands and influencers.
(We hope the gas fees will be kind to us!)
This is the future we’ve always wanted from the games we played and we can’t wait to share that with the world. After all, Froyo Games is Metaverse gaming by real game makers.
Most NFTs games currently suffer low player base due to expensive initial cost for a new player to take part in the game, How does @realfroyogames is attracting large group of players? can you talk some of its features which make it different from other?
Yes that is true for a lot of games, even traditional games. Now it’s happening to blockchain games too, it’s not surprising really.
It’s not going to be easy especially in this climate where so many gamers have a negative outlook on NFTs. That’s why we have partnered with guilds like Mao Dao who have players at the ready to just jump in and play.
We believe in attracting players not just through the quality of the games on our platform but also a bustling and healthy player base that’s always welcoming. With our guild partnerships helping to populate the player bases of the games on the Froyo platform, we are ready and confident that those who decide to give our games a try will enjoy them and invite their friends along to play together.
On your website it says “We provide services for esports, traditional games.” We know that there is still a gap between blockchain and traditional games. How does the FROYO Platform bridge this to attract more Traditional Games to try new blockchain Games?
it started with ourselves, we are early adopters of blockchain games. We’ve been burned, rugged and scammed before and we learned our lessons. Instead of giving up on the blockchain, we decide that we want to build a platform that gamers deserve.
Yes there’s a huge gap. It’s not going to be easy to bridge that gap — and that’s why we are the platform that will provide the tools to developers to incorporate blockchain mechanics into their existing games without having to learn a new coding language or go back to school.
Our SDK is launching later this year so that game developers, from hobbyists all the way up to AAA game studios can take advantage of our platform and add blockchain magic not just to their upcoming games but also to their existing games to give them a new breath of life.
As NFTs and blockchain tech makes their way into existing games, more people will cross that bridge and here at Froyo we are more than happy to build that bridge for the next generation of games.
I see In the FROYO feature We are creating attractive NFTs that will turn into valuable digital assets. Many players & content creators can’t create NFTs yet. Can FROYO solve this problem? Does FROYO plan to educate about NFT beyond non-crypto?
Excellent question! I’ll continue from the answer to the earlier question since it’s relevant. Aside from the SDK that we are launching, we will also have the Froyo NFT Dashboard, made available to those who want to bring their games to the Froyo platform. Here we make it easy for game developers to mint their game items as NFTs without the added baggage of having to learn smart contract coding. We will provide all the heavy lifting so that developers can focus on making their games fun and entertaining. That’s what they do best after all.
Education will definitely be important as we onboard more players from existing games, like how we are bringing NFTs to Claw Stars, one of Google Play’s best Pick-Up-And-Play games. Educating players on how they can use the blockchain to enhance their experience is a priority for us so that newbies get the best practices right from the get-go.
Aside from that we publish articles on our blog and are always looking out for opportunities to rectify all the severe negative opinions and misinformation about NFTs and the blockchain. We believe in showing the world the utility of gaming NFTs, how much value they can bring to players and what this means for everyone in the ecosystem.
We don’t just talk about it. We’re gonna show the world that WAGMI.
Who is FROYO Games ‘s biggest rival? In the future, does FROYO Games have a plan to beat your rival or cooperate with them? I think that will be a huge step forward for FROYO Games
We’re competitive gamers but we’re not looking to start a fight lol. Sure there are other gaming platforms. We want to cooperate where we can and our focus is giving developers the right tools to bring them into this new generation of blockchain gaming. It’s gonna be a rough ride but together, WAGMI ❤
Do you have a Token Burning plan to increase Token value and attract Investors to invest?
No we don’t have any token burning plans. Token burning is the easy way out. We don’t want to build value just through this kinda method. We want to build value for everyone on our platform, for gamers, creators and developers. Froyo is for them. The value of the $FROYO token will be from its utility inside the games on the Froyo platform, as the primary currency in the Froyo marketplace and from the various staking mechanisms on our platform.
Investors seeks more attention towards project when the token had more utlility,So what makes users to hold your tokens for their benefits,is there any loyality program for holders?
This is why we’re paying very close attention to our tokenomics. Many early adopters have kept bugging us for an airdrop or discount. We are focussing on the long term, especially in giving our $FROYO token holders the choice of how they want to stake their tokens. I’d like to take this opportunity to put it out there: There will be NO AIRDROP, and NO STEALTH MINT. All the news about our TGE will only come from our official channel on Twitter and our website.

Every day projects are being built that work and offer great opportunities through NFTs, I would like to know how FROYO Games NFTs will be brought to the forefront and become unique and successful NFTs among the many NFTs that exist in the market?
The keyword in NFTs moving forward is Utility. Froyo is all about the utility of NFTs in the games we publish and their use cases beyond. it’s really important that we can push the knowledge to the world that NFTs are not just monkey JPEGs. They can be so much more than that and thanks to our Play-To-Earn mechanism, we want to make sure that anyone and everyone can get to experience the revolution that NFTs are about to bring.
Vast majority of Crypto projects are built just for the sole purpose of amassing wealth for themselves. So, I want to know the value you aim to add to crypto industry that will bring greater abundance to the industry?
If we wanted this for ourselves we would have just made a blockchain game and have been done with it. Instead, as people who have experienced the good, the bad and the ugly of crypto space, we decided that we can and have to do our part to make this space better for ourselves and for everyone. That’s why we offer the much-needed infrastructure for more developers and game companies to get on board.
To anyone who feels like you missed the blockchain bus, hang in there. Froyo Games is coming to town!
It’s unfortunate that some initiatives become stopped in the middle because their developers abandon the idea because they can’t achieve the desired capitalization over time; how do you plan to keep this project going?
We see this as a problem too, and our solution is to bring developers together under a platform where they aren’t alone. Blockchain game makers can see the light at the end of the tunnel, a bustling community of gamers that can’t wait to try something new and a thriving economy that’s ready to accept the new and wonderful offerings from these promising developers. We’ll take care of the tokenomics and economy so that developers can do what they do best — build games for all of us to enjoy.

Does your project support staking program? if yes. how is your stake system work what is the requirement for user, if they want to stake in your platform?
One last question. Yes, we support staking. We don’t just support one kind of staking, we have multiple methods of staking that will be available, such as ve-mechanism staking and staking for rewards in the form of tokens that will be used in upcoming games on the Froyo platform. The full details will be out soon when we publish our Tokenomics!
