ADMIN ROUND

Jonty|Host
Please tell us about yourself and the team working on PocoLand?

Ann Tran
thank you so much. I am more than happy to share about myself, the team and about our project. My background is in marketing and advertising. After graduating from RMIT majoring in Digital Marketing, I have had experience promoting marketing campaigns, deeply researching consumer behaviour as well as market analysing. Moreover, I have been a media planner that prepares all the creative assets to go with each media platform to set up, keep track of the campaigns. After a few years working in advertising agencies and international corporations, I am currently a Business Development Manager at Pocoland that is in charge of developing customer relationships, and expanding the partnership networks as well as addressing marketing strategies along with the marketing team. We have 3 core teams: founder team, blockchain team, game team. I would like to share a little bit about the co-founders of our team. They graduated from the same university majoring in Business and Finance. After that they became traders. So it is quite easy to understand why they are bringing this project into the world. And for the tech teams, I have to say that I am so proud of them. They have been working so hard the past couple of months. Their backgrounds were design, engineering. Some of them already have more than 10 years of experience in that industry so there is no wonder why we are having such excellent game creatures now.

What PocoLand project is about? How it works, Give a detailed
introduction.

Ann Tran
In case you somehow missed it, NFT gaming has taken the metaverse by storm, creating an exciting new segment in blockchain that unites fans from both categories (NFTs and DeGaming). But while this newly formed market has seen a meteoric rise as of late, we believe that it is still in its infancy. Further, there is much to improve upon when analyzing the current selection of games in the industry, and Pocoland intends to capitalize on this opportunity by providing players with unique gaming concepts and a powerfully rewarding play-to-earn model. Pocoland is home to the adorable Poco creatures. it is a virtual world that supports several ecosystems of entertaining gameplay and various supporting gears. Through the acquisition of our native token $POCO in our upcoming IDO, players can participate in Pocoland’s economy, which includes the exchange of in-game NFTs for a token that provides real market value. Players also have the option of re-investing their earnings in a different game, allowing them to continue earning in our ever-expanding ecosystem.

How can we play and earn money on Pocoland?

Keith
There are 5 ways to play and earn money from Poco game
Finishing daily quests, joining special events. Winning in PvP battles, tournaments. Selling game materials collected from gaming and tournaments on the marketplace. Exchanging, buying and selling the Poco characters on the NFT market. Sending Poco, items through the rental service on Poco NFT marketplace to get passive income. In addition, when spending your time playing games, doing daily quests, or joining our events players will have a chance to gain some rare items, game equipment, PocoLove Token.
Those game resources will help users upgrade the skills of their Poco characters or play the role of the necessary factor of breeding the offspring.
The new Poco will be exchanged on the NFT market at a good price. Besides, players also can bring those game items to sell on the NFT market directly to earn more Poco tokens.

What is the competitive advantage of PocoLand? Who are your competitors and what makes you different from others?

Ann Tran
For Poco, we have bigger ambitions than just building a game, but also creating a social media channel and an earning platform, available to the worldwide community to offer a chance to succeed regardless of your background. we have so many competitors in the market nowadays. But the main competitor is Axie Infinity. It is a game with cute graphics, similar gameplay. It also intends to not only be for blockchain experts. And we are happy that Axie Infinity shares similar goals in letting users be part of controlling the game's development. The gameplay of Axie Infinity is pretty similar to Poco but with the following development, we have recognized and fixed quite a few problems of axie infinity. A disadvantage when comparing Axie with Poco is that the transaction costs are too high. AXS uses an ETH network that makes a fee on each transaction fee at least 10x Poco transactions fee and in the NFT marketplace transaction fees are relatively high at about 4.25%. In contrast, Poco’s transaction fee is much lower than Axie’s, at around 1% — 3.5%. Plus, Poco will take measures to avoid inflation. For example, the upgrade mechanism. Additionally, Poco is the first game for a large global audience of players in general. Absolutely no prior knowledge about cryptocurrencies is needed. Because of that, we compare mainly with the normal game market and target the same players. A much bigger audience than previously seen in the field of blockchain gaming, and an associated larger opportunity for revenues.

Jonty|Host
Could you please provide some progress on your Roadmap and also tell us about your partners?

Ann Tran
The target at the end of the year is we will list binance. In addition, we plan to list up a few centralised exchanges after 1 month of listing pancakes. the goal is binance but besides binance we will still work with other exchanges
To further strengthen our community, multiple fan pages and forums are created solely for our players to discuss and share their thoughts on everything and anything related to Poco. Our team highly encourage and will also actively participate. Within different social media platforms to make sure everyone’s voices are heard to the best of our ability. in the future, we will promote this product by a marketing campaign. A marketing campaign to promote crypto can be an effective plan. Exchanging may involve several major activities, including direct advertising and brand promotion, encouraging user activity, and improving the exchange’s functionality.
We will be Promoting and branding our game. We have to find and set the objective, raise the awareness of the campaign. After that, we will cooperate with media partners to execute the campaign’s idea. However, we may host some offline events if the Covid — 19 gets better, or online even with KOLs, Streamers to implement the partnership project.

Keith
As you can see, currently, we are working with 2 renowned launchpads which include Seedify — An Incubator & Launchpad for Blockchain Games & Gamers and Oxbull — one of the most progressive launchpad in the world.

TWITTER ROUND

-What is the best features or asset of POCOLAND that will make this game in top 10 NFT games?

Keith
Personally, I think the breeding mechanism is one of the best mechanisms of the game, in this feature you can create quality Pocos with high value depends on its index. In the future, we are planning to create some new elements for the game but the ratio to create is not simple, players have to work very hard to achieve that. Maybe we’ll base on the achievements they made while playing it and some luck. And there are some certain rules to create rare characters like the elements must be relevant to the new element they want to create. Small example like if players want to make an Ice Poco, there must be Water Poco as a prerequisite. Of course, the higher quality, the rarer the Poco is, the higher price in the market. In the future, we’ll develop a daily attendance to create more opportunities for players.

- Blockchain games linked to NFT + metaverses and lands have become trending in the crypto space today as they have survived and grown exponentially in the face of the market decline with profitable models for users. So how profitable is POCONFT gameplay?

Keith
On Youtube, some NFT games players have watched our demo clip as well as our roadmap and they are impressed with the journey we made, also we received positive reviews about the game so that is a good sign to attract more players to our game. We know that NFT games are all about making profits to players as well as investors. As I mentioned earlier, breeding mechanism is one of our golden-egg laying hens so in the future, we will focus more on this mechanism and we’ll make some special events related to special occasions around the world such as Christmas, Halloween, Mid-Fall, etc…

- NFT and GameFi are growing very fast, does PocoNFTsGame have some barriers to entry into this marketplace? What are your plans to unlock market’s full potential, in order to compete with other NFT marketplaces like CryptoPunks, Anxie Infinity,Cool Cats?

Ann Tran
In my opinion, there is not a barrier for us to cross for some reason. First, we are now having a large community with people coming from every corner of the world no matter what language they speak or what religion they come from. Second, we are going international instead of focusing on certain countries. Our future plan is collaborating with Twitch — a world-renowned streaming platform where most players are there and streamers will be our partners to expand our impact to every player who does not know about our project. In the beginning, there will be difficulties, but we will try our best to make the game better through every update to bring the best experience to players.
