Q&A from KuCoin
Q: What is RankerDAO? Please make a brief introduction.
Liko: RankerDAO, a Decentralized Autonomous Organization (DAO) that empowers crypto adopters to gain access to the biggest trend of blockchain-based activities from various verticals.
Within the DAO, we have a Guild of Gamers who congregate around our gaming sub-guild and get the full benefits of their membership of the guild through innovative concepts taken through the emergent Social-Fi ecosystem.
Q: What was the inspiration behind starting RankerDAO?
Liko: Last year, many of us witnessed how Axie Infinity blew up and disrupted the whole GameFi/P2E space. But not many saw the problem that we did. What we saw was a gap - a lack of a competitive scene for the available P2E games.
So we turned that into an opportunity to help people by providing them scholarships and establishing a healthy competitive scene for the P2E games that we play.
Q: What are the current games that RankerDAO is currently playing?
Liko: Currently, our players are playing Axie Infinity, Pegaxy, Thetan Arena, WonderHero.
In the near future, we will be playing Project SEED, MetaGear, Space Falcon, Sidus Heroes, Souni.io, Remnant.GG, Reign of Terror, and many other P2E partners that we have.
I believe some of the games that we play are already ecosystems available in KuCoin's platform as well, like Project SEED.
Q: Can you talk about the roadmap of RankerDAO?
Liko: You can find our roadmap in the litepaper here: https://rankerdao.com/[RNKR]%20Litepaper.pdf
But, further than that, we also want to get as many scholars as we possibly can, and we are looking at around 1,000 by the end of February and 1,500-2,000 by the end of March this year.
Q: Can you talk about the utilities of $RANKER tokens?
Liko: The main utility of our $RANKER tokens is to enable our community gamers to advance in their P2E journey.
- Minting out a badge NFT that empowers their scholarships
- NFT Launchpad for Future Games
- IGO platform
- Staking for early access to games (available next week!)
- DAO voting for our Inventory of NFTs
Q: Can users level up their badge with $RANKER and unlock exclusive NFTs, tournaments, and coaching sessions?
Liko: Yes! We've partnered up with several P2E games that will have RANKER exclusive NFTs. For example, with The KillBox Arena, we will have guns with the RANKER logo and designs.
Our guild badge owners have participated in tournaments as well and placed 3rd and 4th in their latest Axie Infinity Tournament, which we are very proud of!
These champions are also available to coach new players and help you strategize your way to successful P2E in Axie Infinity.
Q: How about the scholars of RankerDAO? How well off are your community of gamers?
Liko: Our aim for our scholars is to enable fellow skilled gamers to earn a decent living from various play-to-earn games without compromising the fun.
With this philosophy in mind, RankerDAO is projected to do $6.4 million in total revenue while sharing more than half of it to our scholars, which is about $3.8 million this year.
This assumes that we do not grow our inventory of NFTs, but we are here to ensure that we are always actively growing our inventory.
A little alpha, we almost doubled our inventory count since we made the projections.
Q: Speaking of inventory, how many NFTs does RankerDAO possess now?
Liko: We are close to 1,000 pieces of NFTs from various games, naming WonderHero, Axie Infinity, Pegaxy, The Kill Box Arena, with additions coming from multiple game partners that we have.
Free-Ask from KuCoin Community
Q: What kind of scholars do you distribute to the world?
Liko: We have featured WonderHero, Pegaxy, Axie Infinity, Thetan Arena, and The Kill Box Arena.
We will add more games into our scholarship collections, namely MetaGear, Space Falcon, Sidus Heroes, Souni.io, Remnant.GG, Reign of Terror, and currently looking at Cyball as well!
We are always open to new great games that enable a competitive P2E!
Q: I hope users can pay low fees. How will the RankerDAO platform use its own revenues?
Liko: A small portion of our revenues will be used to cover our operational costs. The rest of it goes back to expanding our inventory of NFTs to ensure that we will grow our NFT count and scholars count and build a healthy ecosystem around RANKER.
Here's a simple flow:
Q: How does the Coach-to-Earn program work? Most P2E platforms seem to focus on onboarding end gamers, so how does this benefit the mentors and players?
Liko: Ultimately, we want our scholars to be successful in the P2E games that they play.
To encourage coaches to help out newer players, we will be rewarding our greatest skilled players with the opportunity to coach newer members.
This will ensure that our scholars will be successful in their P2E journey, which helps themselves, helps RANKER, and at the same time, helps our coaches as well!
Q: Can you tell me how to join your scholarship program?
Liko: For now, we have a guild badge that you can mint from our website to unlock the exclusive guild chat on Discord. You can apply for scholarships from there!
P2E scholarships earn you tokens of the game you choose. So if you're looking to start your P2E journey, visit us on our official website and exclusive guild Discord!
Q: Will each of the users joining RankerDAO have a ranker badge? How to earn this badge, and what benefits do they get from your NFTs?
Liko: It is required! You can mint your guild badge today from https://rankerdao.com
Q: Can we level up our badge with RANKER? How high can a badge be upgraded? Can I participate in your private NFTs and tournaments with these badges?
Liko: Yes! The next set of badges will require RANKER tokens to be enabled!
It will enable and upgrade your scholarships and allow participation in exclusive guild events, such as exclusive NFTs and tournaments.
Q: Do you plan to cooperate with other guilds, and in what form? Are you planning to add more functionality to the RankerDAO badge or add gold or some other for more access to the proposals from the project?
Liko: Yes! To ensure a healthy competitive P2E experience, we have partnered up with a lot of other guilds and hosted a variety of tournaments across multiple games!
It'll be a fun and tight experience for our most skilled gamers to compete against other guilds!
Q: Too many projects promise magic but never release any working product or prove any revenue within a short/long time of release. Is your project also like this? If not, can you tell us what makes your project different from other projects?
Liko: We are actually one of the magical ones because we are already generating revenue!
We were recently fact-checked by our partners from CEXes and House of Chimera to back up our current projections and they can confirm that we are on track to do 6m this year!
