Segment 1 - Introduction

[Grant Stanley]
Hey everyone great to be here

👋

[May]
It’s good to have you here with us!

How are you doing?

[Grant Stanley]
Great 😊 excited to be here

Let's talk about the Izumi World!

[May]
It’s a pleasure to be interviewing you!

You’re welcome to our community - the Decentralized Club 👾

Sure!

Looking forward to an amazing session!

Can you please introduce yourself and your role at the Izumi World Game?

[Grant Stanley]
Hi, I am Grant Stanley CEO of Izumi World

[May]
Awesome!

Can you give a brief description of Izumi to the community?

We would like to know more about it and the inspiration that birthed the project.

[Grant Stanley]
Izumi World is an NFT-based, geolocation pet battle game where players capture and train magical beasts, known as Izumi, from live-tracked locations in the real world. I've been involved in crypto since 2015 as an investor. I noticed most play-to-earn games were not utilizing Augmented Reality (AR) technology so I decided to create the first AAA quality AR game in this space. Using AR, or Augmented Reality, players will see the beauty of Izumi World projected into their own homes and neighborhoods. AR, through mobile devices, allows for a much more accessible entrance to the metaverse, one without the massive hardware requirements of VR gaming.

[May]
Whoooooshhh! This is impressive!

To prevent interruptions during your responses, please use the word « IZUMI » after you are done answering

What are the innovative solutions that distinguish Izumi World from other gaming and NFT projects and what competitive advantages do you have?

[Grant Stanley]
Izumi World is a geolocation game with many engaging and unique features. Players will search for Izumi on an augmented version of a navigator app similar to Google Maps, where the player is tracked in real-time. Once a player discovers an Izumi, they may attempt to catch it using runes and spells.

Each Izumi has unique traits and abilities in combat. Players will create teams of three Izumi to do battle with other players in a strategic, turn-based RPG-style combat system. Players may compete in three different game modes to earn tokens. The first mode will be Arena: one-on-one battles between players. The second game mode will be the Izumian League: Players will ascend the ranks of the Izumian League by winning bracketed battles and earning points. The third game mode will be Illdalorian League Cup: Top-ranked players from the Izumian League compete for the title of champion in a tournament. Winners of these tournaments will earn tokens and NFTs.

At Izumi World, our focus is to create the highest quality software with the absolute maximum of accessible design and meta-creating depth. What sets us apart from other games in this space is that we have far and away from the simplest but deepest design for combat strategy, which enables all kinds of players to become experts from casual to hardcore. Izumi World also has a deep, rich lore that ties into the way that our players interact with the game, which creates an immersive experience like no other crypto game has created before.

What is the gameplay of IzumiWorldGame? Please share some of the characters as well.

[Grant Stanley]
The gameplay consists of hunting for Izumi, battling them against other players to earn tokens, and trading them with other players to make your squad the best!

Here is a water Izumi!!!

And

A fire IZUMI 🔥🔥🔥

[Grant Stanley]
IZUMI

[May]
So cool! 😻

How do we acquire your native project token, what are the tokenomics and why is it important to hold it from an investment point of view?

[Grant Stanley]
Izumi World has a dual token model, namely:
- $IZUMI, which is the governance token, representing voting power in the game governance, resolution mechanisms, future evolutions of the game, and control over Treasury; and.
- $TRNR (reads "trainer"), the currency token, which is used as means of exchange for in-game transactions (both for primary sales of assets and as means of exchange in the Izumi World Marketplace) and in-game rewards.

These tokens will also have additional functions, as they can be allocated to staking and liquidity pools.

Full tokenomics can be viewed at this link: https://izumi.docsend.com/view/9v4jac4khrer6n58

You will be able to acquire IZUMI tokens on DEX & CEX exchanges after launch in Q2!!!

[May]
Nice! Dual token :)

Looking forward to seeing this!

What are the 2021 highlights from Izumi World and what should we look forward to this year?

[Grant Stanley]
We are very excited about the future of Izumi World. In April we will be doing our Founding Trainer Pass NFT Drop. These NFTs will include special perks including many token airdrops. Then in Q2, we will be doing our IZUMI token listings on CEX and DEX exchanges. In Q3 we will be launching the Izumi Marketplace so our community can begin buying, selling, and trading our in-game assets to prepare for the full game launch. In Q4 we will be doing beta testing on our game and finalizing it. Then we aim to release the full Izumi World game in Q1 2023.

So much to look forward to!

Let’s look at some questions from our Twitter community 🥳

Segment 2 - Twitter Questions

[May]
As I saw the whitepaper of @izumiworldgame, I noticed something which I don't really understand. Is the game only playable with AR technology? will you make a small version maybe for playing the game only on our smartphones?

Twitter Username: @SyedApon1

[Grant Stanley]
Izumi World will have some features on just smartphones that players can enjoy, to catch an Izumi though, players must venture into the AR gameplay. If a player wanted to purchase an Izumi on the marketplace and begin battling they could play just on a smartphone.

[May]
There are too many GameFi projects that cause a lot of boredom because the gameplay is so similar, so what new gameplay does your game bring to attract players?

Twitter Username: @DAD2829

[Grant Stanley]
We are the first premier game that incorporates AR into the gameplay with a dual token economy. This game is completely fresh and different from other projects. 💪

[Grant Stanley]
https://t.me/decentralized_club/747816

[May]
I agree!

Water Izumis are pretty!

How can you ensure that gamers and @izumiworldgame have a long-term relationship? What is your long-term strategy for maintaining @izumiworldgame steady growth? Do you have any tax or staking system to prevent dumping and insane market sell-off?

Twitter Username: @Thor1m

[Grant Stanley]
Yes, we do have a great staking program.

We have an active staking mechanism available for $IZUMI (governance token) holders. It's a key driver for long-term value, as it represents trust in the project. In effect, there are two important advantages in staking: 1) it will enable those that stake to participate in governance, and 2) it will enable rewards in the form of $IZUMI and $TRNR (in-game currency token). For those that stake above a certain threshold, there will be additional incentives in the form of mystery boxes (which contain in-game assets). Users will also be incentivized for a longer period and will earn higher APYs as a result.

[May]
Many games that involve blockchain are often not entertaining enough and end up being played only for money. Do you think #izumiworld is genuinely entertaining and could be played even if it were free? Is it appealing enough to attract users who do not know much about NFT games?

Twitter Username: @Thor1m

[Grant Stanley]
Yes! We are play first, earn second. Our priority is creating a super fun game!

[May]
https://t.me/decentralized_club/747832

[May]
Good project
My question for the AMA session
When will @izumiworldgame embark on DEX listing and again has it been audited?

Twitter username: @Christainstel18

[Grant Stanley]
We will be doing an audit with a top firm before token launch and DEX listing. This will happen in May most likely!!!

[May]
Hmmm! May always brings good news. Pun intended 😺

[Grant Stanley]
May flowers 💐

[May]
It’s now time to take questions from our live audience!

Dear guest, as a measure to deter bots and reward hunters, the phrase below has been included in questions so you can tell original questions apart!

The sky is blue and the sun is out!

Please prioritize such questions 🙂

Let's keep the answers rolling in 😊

[Nimsa]
The sky is blue and the sun is out!

Are there going to be other characters apart from the water and fire Izumi? Can we get air and earth Izumi in the future? Maybe other elements as well?

[Grant Stanley]
Yes, we have water, earth, wind, fire, and many combinations of the 4. You can see more combos on our Twitter:

[Diva]
As a geolocation game, can Izumi World be played by players from different regions of the globe? Or will it be restricted to just players from certain parts?

The sky is blue and the sun is out!

[Grant Stanley]
Yes, we are building a global game that can be played all over!

[Diva]
About your "Founding Trainer Pass NFT Drop" happening in April, can you share any information regarding this event? Is it open to everyone?

The sky is blue and the sun is out!

[Grant Stanley]
Hi, engage with our community to get an allowlist spot for the NFT sale. These NFTs will grant users many in-game assets before the game drops and, we are airdropping 4% of both tokens to the nft holders!!! Learn more on our discord:

Where can I buy your tokens right now and what is the process to buy them? And what is your present contract?

[Grant Stanley]
We have not launched our token yet. We will be launching most likely in May 2022!

[Hussain]
I see that #IZUMI token stakers will be given weekly Mystery Box rewards for doing so. Is there a specific amount/number of tokens to be staked to receive these Mystery Boxes of yours?

[Grant Stanley]
There will be various staking pools that give different leveled rewards depending on the amount staked!

[May]
Okay guest, seems we did not get many questions in.

Let's open up the group one more time so our audience can shoot some questions in!

Everyone get ready, please use the keyword

Go! Go! Go!

[May]
Dear guest, kindly pick two lucky questions from this batch and we can wrap up! 🥳

[Grace]
What made you decide to make IZUMI WORLD is it technology or what
The sun is out and the sky is blue

[Grant Stanley]
I've always loved gaming and the possibilities of gaming. I was inspired!

[Zeynep]
The sky is blue and the sun is out!

Can you please share your Discord and telegram link with us? Are the Izumis NFTs as well?
