Q&A from KuCoin
Q: Who is Hawksight useful for? Who is your DeFi super-app focused on serving?
Bradian: Hawksight is a DeFi super-app with a mission to make DeFi more accessible to Everyone.
Passive investors can simply deposit USDC into Hawksight to automate DeFi strategies and earn a profit-optimized yield.
While active investors can also access Hawksight’s AI-driven trading signals and social signals or automate powerful DeFi strategies.
Q: Why should someone buy & hold $HAWK tokens?
Bradian: Hawk Token Launch Strategy
$HAWK tokens have been designed with best-in-class deflationary forces and strong utilities to generate demand and holding power, hence leading to long-term token accrual value for $HAWK.
As Hawksight's DeFi and GameFi products generate more revenue, more $HAWK tokens will be burned and drive up the value.
Q: Can you tell us more about Hawksight's DeFi-NFTs and their benefits?
Bradian: Hawksight's DeFi-NFTs are called Debonair Degen Hawks, launched on Magic Eden. It broke trading volume records on the Solana NFT ecosystem and is largely considered a blue-chip project in space now.
Hawksight's NFTs give holders many financial rewards and strong features/use-cases. For example:
- Access to utilities such as trading signals and social signals (for NFTs too)
- Rewards from revenue generated from Hawksight Degen Pool, which is the GameFi we are launching
- $HAWK rewards
- Boosted DeFi yield on Hawksight
I highly suggest visiting the Hawksight website to check out the entire DeFi super-app and the DeFi-NFTs.
Q: Can you also tell us more about Hawksight's GameFi development, Hawksight Degen Pool?
Bradian: Hawksight Degen Pool (GameFi) will be the first to launch a no-loss prize pool game on Solana and Terra. Other players like Pool together and Moonpot have proven that the model is successful on Ethereum and BSC. We have an entire DeFi super-app ecosystem for synergy, not just a standalone game.
Anyone and everyone can participate in Hawksight Degen Pool, the no-loss DeFi rewards game. Basically, hundreds of users can deposit USD stablecoin into a pool, and that Pool will be used to yield farms using Hawksight. Then one or a few winners will stand a chance to win the entire yield rewards from the entire Pool, while the others get their total deposits back. Hence you either win big or break even.
Our GameFi launch will help fulfill Hawksight's mission to make DeFi accessible to everyone while making DeFi fun and engaging.
Q: Who are Hawksight's team and backers?
Bradian: We have a full-time global team of 17 core members. Led by two co-founders. Enzo, our CTO, is an ex-Uber data scientist and spent years building AI software for global financial institutions. I am the CEO, I previously founded & sold one tech startup to a publicly listed company and founded & scaled a social analytics startup to mature profitability in >50 countries.
We are also backed by the best backers, including Solana Ventures and Terraform Labs.
This is a useful Twitter thread of Hawksight's DeFi super-app.
Q: Can you tell us more about your launch plans and roadmap?
- $HAWK IDO/IEO: Thursday, April 21, 2022 at 10:00 AM (UTC);
- NFT and $HAWK token staking: 1–2 weeks after IDO/IEO;
- DeFi app mainnet: 1–2 weeks after IDO/IEO;
- GameFi Degen Pool: Beta launch Q3–2022.
Free-Ask from KuCoin Community
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?
Bradian: Hawksight is very focused on both product development and marketing. Our AI-driven trading signals are already used by 1.4 million individuals and institutions globally, and we also recently launched our Web3 & NFT social signals that are gaining in popularity. Our next big step is the DeFi app launch in a few weeks, and then GameFi Degen Pool in a few months.
We are obsessed with building and backed by the best like Solana Ventures & Terraform Labs.
Here is a sneak-peek of the DeFi super-app that we launched in a short period of time.
Q: Can you share with us your tokenomics? How much is the total and circulation supply of your tokens?
Bradian: The initial circulating supply will be very low at 1.83%. Imagine that, plus huge trading volume from two centralized exchanges (KuCoin & MEXC) and Raydium, the leading DEX on Solana.
Q: Currently, a lot of people are looking at NFTs, metaverse, and games. Can you tell me what advantages you will have in this field in the future?
Bradian: DeFi is our core product, but we have also launched DeFi-NFTs, which is already considered a blue-chip in Solana. NFTs have helped us 10x the growth of our community, which we will harness to launch our DeFi+GameFi app, drive adoption, revenue-generation, and burning of $HAWK tokens.
Hawksight will definitely partner with metaverse projects in the future to gamify DeFi. Again our mission is to make DeFi accessible to everyone, so we have to be embedded wherever users are. In fact, we are already in close contact to brainstorm collaborations with leading metaverse players.
Q: What security measures has Hawksight taken to protect the funds of users?
Bradian: We take security seriously and have 3 steps to ensure security:
1. Internal smart contract audits (Done)
2. External smart contract audits (Done, and will do more)
3. DeFi insurance to further protect our users (Confirmed)
4. Bug bounty programs
Q: Are you a global project or a local project? At present, which market are you focused on, or is it focused on building and growing to gain customers, users, and partners?
Bradian: Global. Our trading signals are already used by 1.4million+ individuals and institutions in 50+ countries. Our DeFi and GameFi launch will also be a global launch.
Q: Almost 4/5 of investors are focused purely on the price of the token in the short term instead of understanding the real value and health of the project. Could you tell us the motivations and benefits for investors to hold your token long-term?
Bradian: Summary of $HAWK token launch and long-term growth strategy here:
Q: What is the most ambitious goal of your project? Could you share with us any upcoming updates?
Bradian: DeFi launch in 1-2 weeks, and GameFi launch in 1-2 months.
Q: Where can I get the latest updates or more information about the project?
Bradian: Follow us on Twitter.
Q: Can you give an overview of your tokenomics and the utility of tokens?
