AMA Recap: Torekko x The Crypto Blade
Host: Hello Esteban welcome to The Crypto Blade community
Esteban: Hello everyone
Host: Let’s start the AMA session, Are you ready?
Esteban: Yes I am we can start
First Segment: Introduction:
Host: 1: Please introduce yourself, Your background and share an interesting story of how you got into crypto?
Esteban: Hello everyone, my name is Esteban and I’m part of the Torekko team as a Community Manager.
I’m in charge of managing the different Telegram channels of our project.
I’m passionate about the world of japanimation and also about cryptocurrency, that’s why I decided to join the Torekko project.
It’s been 4 years now that I’m interested in the world of blockchain and for the little history I entered this world in the worst way because I got scammed on my first investment!
Host: Please share about the scam (if you feel easy)
Esteban: To be short,
I have a friend who at the time had invested in a project and advised me to do the same.
I knew absolutely nothing about cryptocurrency at the time but I decided to follow him. Unfortunately, it was a scam, there was no real project behind the token.
It was after that that I decided to really get interested in this world so I wouldn’t be fooled anymore!
Host: 2: Can you please provide detailed information about Torekko project and How long you’ve been building this?
Esteban: TOREKKO is an ecosystem to decentralize the world of japanimation.
Concretely, TOREKKO will propose to all to acquire collectibles on Japanese mangas and anime (with official licenses).
We want to highlight the potential of NFTs, so it will be possible to do farming with our NFTs and especially we want to put into action our NFTs, it will also be possible to play the character in our game that is going to be released in 2022.
Torekko has a token, $TRK. $TRK users can stake their tokens to receive interest in $TRK.
Otherwise, we have been working on the project since early 2021
Host: 3: Can you share more details about the Torekko Token-omics, is there any particular vesting schedule if so can you share more about it?
Esteban: The maximum supply is 100 000 000 $TRK. The distribution of the token is 41% incentive, liquidy, community rewards, 18,5% early supporters, 21,5% ecosystem, exchange liquidity, marketing, 20% Team & Advisors.
$TRK will be used as payment for NFT farming and $TRK staking.
$TRK will also be the official currency of our metaverse and our play to earn.
$TRK will also be essential for the purchase of our NFT collectibles and boosters which will be made only in $TRK
$TRK will also be used for our marketplace
We have different vesting schedules for each round of sales. The vesting schedule has been carefully thought out to ensure that the project is sustainable in both the short and long term and to balance the buying and selling process.
Host: 4: Torekko is going to develop two types of NFT, NFT collectibles, and NFT boosters. Would you please provide detailed information about both NFT collections?
Esteban: All Torekko NFTs are available in limited quantities. Some are rarer than others because they are available in smaller quantities.
In this logic of maximizing the rarity of collectibles and putting the spirit of collecting at the heart of the project, Torekko has developed boosters. In concrete terms, these boosters are NFTs that can be bought, sold or kept.
They can also be opened to obtain several random collectibles. Once opened, the booster is destroyed, which reduces the number of boosters in circulation. This simple principle allows the establishment of a real collection ecosystem based on the acquisition, conservation, and opening of boosters.
Each booster is linked to a collection or to several collections. There are, for example, TOREKKO ORIGINALS Autumn 2021 boosters but also Autumn 2021 boosters containing several collections of this season. Finally, there are boosters containing more or less collectibles (3, 7, 20, …)
Host: 5: Do you have any plans to launch a “play to earn” video game based on $TRK?
Esteban: Yes, the launch of a “play to earn” video game based on $TRK is one of the development axes of the Torekko project. By creating it, we want to bring utility to our NFTs, but also to our token since it will be the official currency.
Through our project, we really want to decentralize the world of japanimation and that’s why the development of a video game seems essential to us.
2nd Segment: Questions from the Twitter announcement:
1: There are many platforms with the same idea as Torekko. So, what great technologies and features will you offer to the community that sets it apart from other platforms? What strategy did you use to make Torekko worth in the market?
Question by FariaFari8
Esteban: There are 5 main features that make Torekko different from others and worth in the market:
•Semin fongible tokens : The goal is to address the lack of liquidity in the current NFT market
•Staking and farming : Staking and farming allows us to obtain passive income and to give usefulness to our $TRK token and to our NFT
•Real licenses : Real licenses bring credibility and value to our NFTs.
•Boosters : Torekko boosters are NFTs that can be stored, exchanged and farmed without being opened.
•The metaverse : The metaverse allows us to put our NFTs into action and also earn passive income as it is a play to earn.
2: Can you tell us about the team of the @torekkocom project? How many people does your team consist of and is your team’s knowledge and experience sufficient to develop and advance the @torekkocom project?
Question by DoctorPhysio2
Esteban: Currently 20 people are part of the project. We have an experienced team for blockchain development, full-stack development, design, animation, and marketing. As for their background, some of them have been to renowned schools and have already worked on other blockchain projects. As our goal is to develop a project adapted to the blockchain and anime community, we also have a team of qualified graphic designers for our NFTS and our website. Our diversity allows us to have a solid project with a team with different profiles that complement each other. The project is also incubated by Oddiyana Ventures to put us in touch with the right people and also to help us with the development of the project and its marketing!
3: Nearly 80% of investors only focus on short-term token prices instead of understanding the real value of the project. Can you tell us the motivations and benefits for investors to hold your tokens in the long term?
Question by paolodibala1111
Esteban: The goal is to decentralize japanimation and also the whole universe related to anime and manga. So it goes much further than a simple NFT project. We did not choose our investors by chance. We have investors who are above all passionate about the NFT universe, crypto-currencies, and even the anime universe. We are building a healthy long-term relationship with our investors to gradually decentralize japanimation and unlock the full potential of our project.
In addition, we will introduce a stacking and farming system, which will benefit investors who intend to invest in the project on a long-term basis.
3rd Segment: Community round
Q1: Do you have an AUDIT certificate or are you working to AUDIT your project, so that the security of the project becomes more secure and reliable?
Question by gesega
Esteban: As in any blockchain project, being audited is hyper-important to reassure investors.
We, therefore, work closely with a well-known blockchain auditing company to get certificates before the launch
Q2: Non-crypto user is very important for mainstream adoption. How you are planning to attract non-crypto users towards #Torekko project? Is there any upcoming partnership that will bring non-crypto users and real-use cases?
Question by allharrohomot
Esteban: Our desire to simplify blockchain and NFT is one of our plans to attract people who are not initially interested in this world. Indeed, we want to convince the crypto community but also the anime/manga community. There are a lot of people who are anime fans but don’t know the world of blockchain, cryptocurrencies, and NFTs. So we will have to educate this community and simplify our platform as much as possible to make it accessible for everyone.
Q3: Can you list 1–3 killer features of this project that make it ahead of its competitors? What is the competitive advantage your project has that you feel most confident about?
Question by Anna6nuri
Esteban: There are 3 main features that make Torekko different from others and worth in the market:
-Semin fungible tokens: The goal is to address the lack of liquidity in the current NFT market with a limited supply on each NFT collectible and booster
-Real licenses: Real licenses bring credibility and value to our NFTs.
-Boosters: Torekko boosters are NFTs that can be stored, exchanged, and farmed without being opened.
Q4: What is the role of tokens in the ecosystem? Where can people currently buy it? what would be its users and where listed this token?
Question by MoRenata
Esteban: The role of the $TRK token will be central to our project.
It will be used to buy our boosters and collectibles, it will also be the official currency of our metaverse, and finally, it will allow holders to generate passive income via a stacking system.
You will be able to buy $TRK on the BSC and on the ETH blockchain
Q5: PARTNERSHIP & COLLABORATIONS are the backbones in making every project more widespread. Can you list some of our partners with us?
Question by playerlover
Esteban: We have various partners who are driving the project forward, such as Moonwhale, Roseon, and Lavender Capital as strategic investors and Oddiyana Ventures as an incubator. We will develop our partnerships on the two themes that are linked to us, blockchain and japanimation. We are currently negotiating with several licenses, I can’t reveal them yet, but stay tuned!
