December 1-st held an Ask Me Anything session at ICO Speaks telegram chat. From the Animal Concerts side there was:
👨💻Kurt Uhler | Fundraise/Launch Lead | @kurt_u
Hi Everyone – very happy to be here today. I’m Kurt and I’ve been leading all our fundraising efforts to this point and am responsible for the launch strategy surrounding the token and overall development of token utility.
👨💻Jack Faux | marketing team | @MrLowcaps
Great to meet you all, I am heading up the marketing and sale side of things for animal. Looking forward to answering any questions
👨💻Sam Kullar | Head of Growthnice | @SamK_Startup_Ninja
I’m Sam and I’m currently leading all of our marketing and community efforts, alongside supporting the team in a number of other commercial elements to our business (funding, growth strategy, etc). Look forward to chatting with you all!
Let’s get started!
Q: What is Animal Concerts?
A: Animal Concerts is creating the next generation entertainment experience. We produce unforgettable concerts, while leveraging cutting-edge technology to bring these experiences to fans worldwide through the metaverse.
With the Animal token, we democratize the concert experience for both artists and fans across the globe.
The Animal team partners with performers to provide authentic experiences for fans, while giving artists access to innovative revenue streams, without interference from middlemen.
With the Animal token, you can participate directly in our events by interacting with your favorite artist, governing the protocol and collecting NFTs, which can be redeemed for once in a lifetime experiences.
Q: Can you share the project’s vision?
A: The vision is to be a leading metaverse concert platform. We want to introduce the next 100 million users to the metaverse, and by extension to cryptocurrencies. Concerts are a great way to do this as they provide a familiar on-ramp to the industry. Additionally, metaverse helps the experience as its immersive and feels like a game that many people have been playing for decades.
Animal Concerts live in Miami a few months ago! The vision is to allow communities to experience these concerts physically and then virtually for those that missed out.
Q: What makes Animal Concerts different or unique?
A: Animal Concerts sits perfectly at the intersection of live events, metaverse events and NFTs. We leverage our strong team and extensive relationships in the music/entertainment industry, which features partnerships with 3 of the largest talent agencies in the world–WMA, Unite Talent and Paradigm. Our team also has 30+ years of experience hosting unforgettable events such as the grammys, emmys, oscars and other upscale events featuring A-list talent. These relationships and our experience give us access to the top music talent in the world, and are irreplaceable.
From there, we have a blockchain agnostic platform that is plug and play into any metaverse and our business model creates alignment with the artists on promotion of our events and token. We will have A-list musicians and bands contractually obligated to post about us on a regular basis as a result. The audience we have reached already, and will continue to reach through this approach is extensive, as these folks can have anywhere between 10 and 100 million followers across their socials. This reach is unmatched in crypto, and provides a real use case for onboarding the next 100 million users into the metaverse.
Q: What are the goals for Animal Concerts in the upcoming month or two relating to the launch and after?
A: We are currently wrapping up our private round fundraise and are slated for launch within the next month. So the token launch is a primary goal at the moment. We will be making some announcements very shortly on our launchpads, which will include 3 very solid partners.
After the token launch, our goals are to continue refining our approach to the tech, which already includes significant partnerships in the space. We already have multiple artists signed up to utilize our platform for all 3 verticals (live, metaverse and NFTs) and will be announcing their names soon as well to create hype around our launch. So we will be very focused on these booked events and also securing more talent for future events.
From a marketing lens: expect a huge revamp across all our socials, which will include more announcements and updates to our community, some fun AMAs through our socials and of course who doesn’t love a good giveaway!
Q: Could you describe what you app will look like and how users will experience your metaverse concerts?
A: Given our audience, our app will really serve two purposes. One is to make the onboarding experience easy for new users, the second will be to make cross-chain interaction and metaverse access smooth.
Some of the features for our App are:
-Wallet UI (display web3 wallet balances) + NFTs
-Cross-chain bridge for ANML token
-Staking pools + Rewards Program
-Events (past, upcoming, cross-promoted)
-Access point to our own Metaverse
Users will be able to experience our metaverse concerts initially in familiar metaverses such as Decentraland and Sandbox, but we will also have our own metaverse venue, which will offer a consistent feel across multiple metaverses. The tech is composable across platforms, which helps make this an efficient process.
Q: What type of musicians or bands are you targeting for your events? Have you hosted an event already?
A: We will cater to a broad range of musicians, but are focused on top 100 artists worldwide. Our first proof of concept event was the Maxim Halloween party on October 30, 2021 in Miami, Florida and a very well known rap artist called Future performed at it. Future has won many awards and has the most appearances in the Billboard Top 10 of any rap artist of all time. This event also featured a partnership with Maxim magazine, so it was filled with a “who’s who” in the Miami crypto scene.
Have we hosted an event? You tell me! Future was insane you guys amazing rapper and great to work with as our first Artist. Off to a flying start 🚀
I like to call it our “proof of concert”
We also have a number of interesting artists in the pipeline as well featuring several top 10 female artists that we can’t disclose the name of just yet. But we will be announcing one of them very shortly to celebrate our token launch. One of the benefits of having this level of access within the music industry is that partners like exchanges, metaverse projects and NFT platforms (like OpenSea) are all very interested in our project as we can bring them NEW users, not just recycle existing userbase.
Q: What types of projects will you partner with going forward? Are there any partnerships you can announce or hint at?
A: One of our goal is to partner with the major metaverses across different blockchains. This will give us exposure among their existing user bases. One example of this is that we already have a partnership with Decentraland (you can check their Tweet history and see a tweet about our Oct 30 event on their timeline). We’ll be working with them on a tech initiative, but also co-hosting one of our upcoming metaverse concerts.
We will also be partnering with various NFT marketplaces, prior to building our own marketplace. We have a partnership with OpenSea for promoting NFTs for our next drop as well.
We also have multiple grant offers from various layer-one blockchains. We hope to make an announcement on this soon as well.
Lastly, we hope to partner with other projects in the music industry. There are so many emerging projects relating to music NFTs and intellectual property that we believe a ton of synergy exists in this sector of blockchain tech.
As you can see, we have quite a few announcements upcoming, so we would encourage everyone to join our socials (twitter, telegram, discord primarily) so that you can check out where to get in early on our token public sale.
Q: What is the token utility of the Animal Token?
A: Super important question and crucial to the success of the platform. First off, the Animal Token $ANML (ERC-20) powers the ecosystem and through the app will allow for a direct Fiat onramp
Some of the other token use cases will include (token isnt launched yet):
-Medium of exchange utilized to purchase tickets to shows and other NFTs on all supported chains
-W2E – Watch 2 Earn – users earn token rewards for active participation in our metaverse events
-Governance rights for the Animal NFT Marketplace which features curated art collaborations between our partner artists and world renown digital artists, tangible item NFTs, tickets sold as NFTs, and experiential NFTs
-Governance rights for the on-chain treasury which is comprised of revenue generated from NFT marketplace fees, NFT ticketing revenue for events and limited edition NFT sales
-ANML promotes artist/fan interaction creating a mechanism for new revenue streams for artists, while fans can participate in aspects of events previously off limits.
-Stake ANML to earn status, free tickets, perks and entries into limited edition NFT giveaways
-Partners and sponsors must stake ANML to gain access to events
-Venues bidding to hosting Animal Concerts events
Q: How will you market the project?
A: As mentioned earlier, one of the most important pieces of our marketing strategy involves the artists themselves as they are contracted in to promote the platform. Additionally, we plan to do extensive marketing around our token launch, which includes the use of 3 launchpads, significant KOL relationships, and cross-promotion among our various partners. We expect to have a global audience very shortly!
Like every great project, marketing will be essential to building the foundations of our communities across all socials. Projects like ours require continual engagement and upkeep to our community, because we’re going to grow and do so many fun things together as you can see from the above. Stay connected and make sure to follow our discord and twitter channels to see how we will be showcasing our brand to the world. Of course -> partnerships will be key and we will continue to engage awesome communities like ICO SPEAKS to get the word out of our vision and mission and objectives to new audiences, with the aim of growing our communities to 1M+ followers across all channels in the new year!
Q: Do you have Whitepaper if yes, please share it with as secondly do you have plans for pre-sale? Now where can we Join it?
we will be making an announcement soon on our launchpads. please join our socials to stay up to date.
Q: How can I buy this tokens? Is it available on any exchange?
A: Not available yet will be announcing this soon on our socials!
Q: Can you share to us your tokenomics? How much is the total and circulation supply of your tokens? Will there be buy back system or token burning in the future?
A: yes, please refer to our whitepaper, which was just linked. the total supply will be 12.5b, with a small percentage of that circulating at TGE (<2%). we will not have burns within our token contract, however, we will utilize an on-chain treasury that will be governed by ANML token stakers. they could certainly vote for buy back/burns but the point is that the governance is up to the community.
Q: Do you have any plan to prepared for this bear market? How will you handle the panic sell ?
A: this project is uniquely positioned in that there is a real world business backing it. we are well funded and have a legitimate use case. therefore, this token should be uniquely positioned to handle a bear market as opposed to a DeFi project, for example.
Q: Where can I buy your tokens now, what are your current contracts and how can I buy them and what are the benefits?
A: the token is not available yet, please refer to our launchpad announcements. the token can be bought very soon on launchpads, via DEX and also a CEX listing.
Q: From where we can learn something? Please share with us link.
https://discord.gg/GGU39Znm -> you can chat with me here!
Q: Many kids nowadays prefer to spend money on digital assets rather than buying physical products themselves. What are your plans for them?
A: Well luckily the future idea is to sell not only the digital NFT but also the physical version of it too through our artists. Stay tuned and watch this space! Physical + Virtual NFTs are starting to yield much more interest
Q: How can users stay updated with this project?
A: We’ve mentioned this before, but to mention again you can find me on Discord! (https://t.me/animalconcertsofficial) and we’ll be making announcements on twitter as well (https://twitter.com/animalconcerts)
Q: is a central element for every project, so that everyone knows the potential that a project can bring is vital to achieve the goals set. What is your strategy to attract new users and Investor to your project and keep them long term.
A: we must continue to find artists that appeal to broad audiences. if we can diversify the concert offerings, we can get a diverse audience and continue to grow throughout the world. We also will focus on non-USA based artists such as K-pop, bollywood, etc.
