Let’s get started!
Harishkarthik | CEO at CoinFantasy | @cryptonation91
I have 8+ years of experience as a Software Developer & worked at various Fortune 500 companies and overseen diverse teams in Sweden, UAE, USA and India. I have done my undergrad in NIT Trichy & Masters from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I co-founded CoinFantasy.io to address the great opportunity of “Gamifying financial markets”. I truly believe in the power of decentralization and the benefits it can unlock as a great social leveler.
Q: Can you introduce CoinFantasy to the team?
A: CoinFantasy is the world’s first platform to gamify the financial crypto market with the use of NFTs. It is a decentralized community-based project that would pioneer in Play-to-Earn model.
CoinFantasy allows users to create and run their own prize-pool-based fantasy games where participants can win rewards in the form of cryptocurrencies. The game participants, organizers, and sponsors alike benefit from the event, creating a win-win situation for every party.
CoinFantasy aims to create an interactive platform while addressing the shortcomings of the crypto ecosystem. For that purpose, it offers various solutions such as,
• Blockchain-Enabled Instant Settlement
• Decentralized Platform
• Coin Launch – Gamified Launchpad for crypto projects
• Smart Credit System
Q:What makes Coin Fantasy unique?
A: Coin Fantasy aims to create a niche market of gamifying finance that comes at the conjunction of Gaming + Defi + NFTs. It is the first platform to have Defi elements embedded within its gaming structure.
There are no direct competitors to Coin Fantasy, as the solutions available are just simulation platforms using paper money and there is no value as a user.
Q:Interesting, What you think are problems with current fantasy solutuions? Current fantasy solutions are:
A: – Fully Centralized – Current Fantasy solutions are controlled by centralized entities
– Custodial- Currently there are no non-custodial solutions that let users have ownership of their funds
– Smart Credit: Fantasy platform participants do not have access to credit to further continue their engagements
– Zero Value-creation – Currently available fantasy products do not enable the community to have a voice in the project
– Delayed Settlements: Settlements on the Fantasy platforms sometimes take days to complete – Zero Value-creation
– Currently available fantasy products do not enable the community to have a voice in the – Restrictions
– Global restrictions constrain the growth of gaming platforms and currently they are unable to serve audiences
Q: What are some key highlights of CoinFantasy?
A: Initially, we will be launching fantasy gaming for crypto markets, but in a later stage, will venture into fantasy gaming for the traditional space such as stocks, derivatives, and more. Besides, CoinFantasy is building an ecosystem around the fantasy game that gives exposure to different Defi and NFT elements.
Also, there is something called Coin Launch that is trying to replace the idea of the current Launchpads.
Q: Can you share more information about Coin Launch?
A: Coin Launch: – It is a proof of concept to gamify Launchpads, in which users participate in a game to get whitelisted for allocation & airdrops. This prevents bots from front-running users for allocation and brings in a creamy layer of participants who understand the crypto market. Also, it is an interesting way for projects to engage their community compared to traditional launchpads
Q:What are the Defi & NFT elements in CoinFantasy?
A: Defi – CoinFantasy with the help of on-chain data and AI creates a credit score for the platform users in comparison to the traditional world credit history, thus enabling unique defi elements such as under-collateralized loans, Insurance for game creators & Yield farming.
NFTs – Adopting elements of the game theory, the platforms incentivize repeat by allowing them to mint limited edition NFTs & sell them through their launchpad. Users who purchase these NFTs will get a share of the prize money from the minter of the NFT which works like a royalty deal. If the minter of the NFTs is performing well on the platform, the value of the NFTs increases, in this way CoinFantasy’s NFT model brings in the intrinsic value of the NFTs.
Basket Protocol – Consistent game Participants would be allowed to enable the option for their followers for a fee to subscribe to their Token sets that they use to join any Game pool. Good winnings in the game as a player increases the value of the subscription
Q: Can you share with us the achievements and milestones of CoinFantasy so far?
A: We have already received 2000+ signups this month. Every week we are seeing a 30% increase in user signups for early access to the game. We are on track to reach 5k+ user signups before the launch of the test net.
Q: Can you share more information about the test net launching next week?
A: Users participating & competing in our test net game will win 10,000$ worth of game pool prizes. They will be able to participate in these game pools and win real money. Apart from this, Coin Fantasy:
