Segment 1 — Introduction

[May]

Hello, xin chào, 大家好, नमस्ते, Përshëndetje, Selamat!

My name is May and I’ll be hosting the AMA with Univers

We have two super guests from a super project — Univers!

You’re welcome to our community!

[Peter Nguyen]

Hello @MsMayMay!

A pleasure to be here with the Decentralized Club!

Thank you for having us!

[Michał Szachno]

Hola! Thanks for hosting the AMA today!

[May]

Thank you for being here with us!

[May]

How’s your day going?

[Michał Szachno]

Busy Friday, progressing on multiple angles 🙂

[May]

And you, Peter?

[Peter Nguyen]

Doing great! Thank you. Very busy as Michal has said, but we’re happy with all of the things that have been going on lately! 😄

[May]

That’s awesome!

Now, can you please introduce yourselves to our community and tell us your roles at Univers?

[Peter Nguyen]

My name is Peter Nguyen, and I am the Chief Marketing Officer here at Univers: The Metaverse Network. I have over ten years of experience in traditional marketing where I spent time working on digital, social, and experiential marketing with companies such as Nike, Coca-Cola, and Spotify.

I spent the past several years working within the blockchain space where I was a CMO for a previous company based out of Canada and also was the CMO for a Crypto VC Firm where I was able to incubate and provide marketing support for over 100+ different projects.

[Michał Szachno]

Sure, my name is Michal and I have been involved in the crypto space for several years now. Mostly interested in designing go-to-market strategies and token economies. This is basically also my role in the Univers project 🙂

[May]

Amazing backgrounds from you both!

Let’s quickly get into the session!

Can you tell us about Univers and the inspiration that got it started?

[Peter Nguyen]

Yes!

We at Univers firmly believe the metaverse is the next stage in human technical evolution but has some inherent issues or failings that need to be addressed and resolved.

Metaverse experiences are largely centralized and disconnected from other metaverse experiences and projects. In addition, the parties currently investing money into the development of the metaverse are primarily centralized organizations known for forcing users to agree to unfair and questionable terms which grant them complete control over the user-generated data. These organizations raise huge ethical and proprietary concerns amongst users worldwide, making the metaverse experience less credible, less trustworthy, and thus, less engaging.

Our solution is infrastructure and technology capable of harnessing the power of the blockchain while championing connectivity and interoperability between virtual experiences. We are building a diverse network of independent projects where every idea has the opportunity to be explored and thrive regardless of what is popular or trendy at the moment. Univers will connect metaverse experiences without trying to dominate or control them!

[May]

Awesome!

What innovative solution is Univers bringing to topple its competitors with similar offerings in the Metaverse sector?

[Michał Szachno]

That is a great question!

In short, Univers aims to simplify the blockchain development process for game developers by introducing the Univers SDK. By connecting with the Univers SDK, community members can enter Avalon; the Gateway to the Metaverse through which they can explore a PVP Arena, Marketplace, Live Event Spaces, a Vibrant Community Hub, and connect to other worlds

You can also find the list of main advantages below 👇

🥇 Univers Network Advantages:

☑️ A simplified SDK for developers which includes industry research, best practices, and technical requests from over 30+ game studios.

☑️ Already developed mechanisms for NFT Staking.

☑️ A premier metaverse experience designed by an Emmy Award-Winning Director (x2)

[May]

Wow!

This is so impressive and we’re only just getting started!

[Michał Szachno]

Indeed 😊

[May]

Great job!

Can you tell us about $VRS and its utilities?

[Michał Szachno]

The Token part is my favorite- with pleasure!

So VRS is basically the ecosystem token for the Univers network. It will serve as both the governance and utility token within the network. Our unique token is designed to put power into the hands of the users and empower the users of the network from the players, developers, and content creators.

You already know that I like to break things down into short and informative points, so please find another part of them below 😅

☑️ Token Utilities

Governance- securing the network & voting power

Game Auctions

Platform fees

Premium access to the Univers SDK

In-game payments

[May]

Utilities look great, as expected! 👏🏻

Can you tell us about the most prominent features of Univers?

[Peter Nguyen]

Absolutely

Some outstanding features of Univers are our SDK and Avalon.

The Univers SDK is a collection of software development tools that allow game creators to develop virtual experiences, games, and applications easier and faster, even if they have no extensive knowledge of blockchain technology.

Univers provides the technical and economic infrastructure to empower and amplify user creativity, simplify blockchain integration, and connect innovative people worldwide.

Our SDK is designed to accommodate all skill levels to ensure we can truly unleash user creativity. Univers’ openness and desire to truly elevate all types of users is a very unique feature.

Our first product, Avalon, is another incredible and unique Univers feature!

Avalon is the gateway to the metaverse and the realization of our ambitions! Avalon will be the community hub where users can enter via any of the mixed realities and explore ways to play and earn, including a live PVP-Arena, Marketplace, Live Event Spaces, and Concerts. It allows users to not only meet and socialize within an immersive experience but then directly access any other virtual experience connected to our network. It is both extremely engaging and amazingly convenient!

[May]

Nice!

Please give us a summary of your 2021 highlights and what major news should we look forward to from Univers in 2022?

[Peter Nguyen]

Absolutely! 2021 was a big year in getting the team together. We managed to acquire an all-star cast and it’s been great to have so many specialized and experienced people working on one project.

In terms of our roadmap, you can find it here!

[May]

This makes everything pretty easy 😁

Such impressive goals

Let’s now take some questions from our Twitter community!

[Michał Szachno]

Real fun begins now 🤠

Segment 2 — Twitter Questions

[May]

Many launchpad platforms require large requirements to be able to participate, such as WhiteLists, strict KYCs, and even deposits, so many users can’t participate. Will “Univers_network” fulfill the same requirements? Or do you really want more users involved?

Twitter Username: @MinhTrung123456

[Michał Szachno]

We will be doing many community giveaways as well as other tools to engage with our community. We are currently doing a massive $VRS Token airdrop right now that you can get your hands on!

However, KYC will adhere to the specific rules and regulations of each launchpad.

https://t.me/decentralized_club/787686

[May]

What will the $VRS token mean for each project that enters the universe ecosystem? What will other project owners be able to do with $VRS and what advantages will they have? also how will he use $VRS tokens with his own tokens?

Twitter Username: @TrungHieu1909

[Peter Nguyen]

Having $VRS as the universal token will allow independent game studios to easily enter blockchain with an in-game economy ready to go.

This also means that there can be universal asset flows across each metaverse on the Univers Network. So all of the hard work that players have spent in customizing their avatars, leveling up their characters, and collecting in-game items and assets can now be transferred seamlessly and frictionlessly across our network!

We are creating true interoperability across the metaverse!

[May]

What strategies does the project have in place to persuade conventional gamers into the blockchain gaming market? Because the blockchain gaming paradigm is still too new to reach players, and the visuals and game content are unappealing. How will Project deal with this?

Twitter Username: @Aslihan32k?

[Peter Nguyen]

good question!

We’ve had research with over 30+ game studios within the space and we’ve determined exactly what they require when we onboard them onto the Univers SDK. This means that we are making all of the necessary adjustments to ensure that each game studio can easily and frictionlessly make its transition into the blockchain!

[May]

Recently, I saw Univers Network’s recent partnership with Spring Legal is vital to its secure and stable growth, yet, can you explain the importance of the alliance between both projects? Will this alliance only gravitate towards complementary practices in areas of corporate law?

Twitter Username: @MinhTrung123456

[Peter Nguyen]

As we are based in Paris, France, we will ensure that we follow all proper legal protocols. Spring Legal is a Paris-based legal firm specializing in all the materials needed to ensure that we are properly following all legal requirements for operating in France.

[May]

What is the ultimate vision that “univers_network” is trying to achieve within the cryptocurrencies market? Obviously, the whole space will experience huge growth in the upcoming years, but what role would you like your project to play in this?

Twitter Username: @AHabijur

[Michał Szachno]

As mentioned briefly above, our long term goal is blockchain agnosticism, meaning we plan to truly champion interoperability between virtual experiences

Any project, application, or platform can be connected to or built on the network through any reality, such as VR, AR or

2D interfaces. In addition, Avalon is a magnificent and multifaceted virtual space itself meaning our users actually get to enjoy the entire experience of traveling between different virtual worlds, and have an interesting and fun place to hang out regardless of whether they need to or want to travel between worlds. We’re not just trying to be a bridge, but a thriving and passionate community

Our goal is to become the premier metaverse solution for all projects regardless of blockchain

ecosystem 🛸

[May]

Now it’s time to take questions from our live audience

A minute for the community to prepare excellent questions!

[Michał Szachno]

👀👀👀

[Peter Nguyen]

😱😱😱

[May]

In this 3rd segment, I will open the group for some seconds for the live community to shoot you some pressing questions.

Please pick five original questions to answer.

Try to ignore generic, vague, and copy-paste questions 😊

AMA Rules for the community

https://t.me/DC_Court/22754

What is your favorite sport?

[Peter Nguyen]

OUF

To play, volleyball

[Michał Szachno]

Haha that is definitely a question that I did not expect

[Peter Nguyen]

To watch, basketball

[May]

😀😀

You’ll see why soon

[Michał Szachno]

Actually, with me, it’s the other way around. I love to play basketball, at one point I was a pro player but hate to watch it

That motivated me to play better and not sit on the bench 😅

[Peter Nguyen]

I know Michal’s 👀

♟ hahaha

https://t.me/decentralized_club/787716

[Michał Szachno]

Exactly, this guy is wearing my number from the t-shirt

Dear guests, as a measure to deter bots and reward hunters, please include the phrase below in your questions so the guest can tell the original questions apart!

✅Peter and Michal are great guests that like basketball and Volleyball!✅

DO NOT TAG THE GUEST

Please prioritize such questions 🙂

[Peter Nguyen]

Great!

How many do we choose?

[May]

Five 🥳

[Peter Nguyen]

[Karry]

Can you please tell me about the

“AUTOMATED DECENTRALIZED ADVERTISING MANAGEMENT SYSTEM”, (ADAMS), For What Purpose has this SYSTEM has been Launched, Where ADAMS will be Used?

Peter and Michal are great guests that like basketball and Volleyball!✅

[Peter Nguyen]

1. This will be a B2B service once Avalon is launched. However, users can also be awarded for opting into ADAMS much like the way Brave rewards users for opting into their services.

Sumit:

Many new users would be clear with the “LAYER ZERO” that You have created,

Can You Please talk about it?

✅Peter and Michal are great guests that like basketball and Volleyball!✅

[Peter Nguyen]

2. Univers is The Metaverse Network. As such, interoperability for all virtual experiences connected to our network is an absolute necessity and our priority. To make our vision a reality, we created Layer Zero.

Layer Zero is a data transfer layer running beneath Univers. It’s connected to our mother network (a COSMOS-based chain providing interoperability and security) and to metaverse-based projects and gaming apps that enable horizontal scalability.

Layer Zero can be best understood as the data transfer layer. This layer is enabled by the IMC Protocol and a transport layer for metaverse smart contracts, facilitating their on-chain communication.

[Im Donn Of King]

Can you list 1–3 killer features of this project that makes it ahead of its competitors? What is the competitive advantage your project has that you feel most confident about?

[Michał Szachno]

3. Sure, the killer feature is definitely on connecting the Location Based Entertainment with the online Metaverse. This allows us to bring a really immersive experience to our users. On top of that, SDK is surely a tool that we bet on while creating our own network effect!

[chukky]

How can I join the pre-sale or IDO? Is the whitelist still open? and what will be the first exchanges where this Token will be listed and how to buy it?

[Peter Nguyen]

4. We will be announcing IDO details soon! So please join our channel for official updates! 😉

https://t.me/Univers_network

[Atharv]

Please talk about the SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT TOOLS that Univers SDK has?

How does it help Developers?

✅Peter and Michal are great guests that like basketball and Volleyball!✅

[Peter Nguyen]

5. The Univers SDK is a collection of software development tools that allow game creators to develop virtual experiences, games, and applications easier and faster, even if they have no extensive knowledge of blockchain technology.

Univers provides the technical and economic infrastructure to empower and amplify user creativity, simplify blockchain integration, and connect innovative people worldwide.

Our SDK is designed to accommodate all skill levels to ensure we can truly unleash user creativity. Univers’ openness and desire to truly elevate all types of users is a very unique feature.

[May]

Can you please take more questions?

[✭𝙴𝚊𝚝𝚒𝚗𝚐𝚀𝚞𝚎𝚎𝚗✭1️⃣3️⃣]

Do token holders have the right to participate in the management of other projects? Will they be able to vote on a new decision about the project?

[Michał Szachno]

6. We plan to allow for the decision-making and shared profits in the game auctions where users can stake their VRS to actually vote. This is a similar concept to the one you might know from Parachain auctions 🔥

[Joy Hamed]

I’m really interested in your project. Your project is very good. Can you share your social media links so we can keep ourselves updated?

[Peter Nguyen]

7. You can find all our links here!

Be sure to join, as we have a major giveaway right now AND we will be releasing an NFT airdrop in the coming months for free!
