👨💻Shafiq Umar | CEO of CIPHERS(Dragons of Midgard) | @blocksinc
Hello, I’m Umar, CEO of CIPHERS(Dragons of Midgard). I’m a senior blockchain enthusiast, developer by profession and gamer by passion. More than 13 years of market experience in developing projects for clients like hitachi and pwc. I’m an advocate of innovation and digital currencies and crypto collectibles and want to invest in crypto collectibles p2e earn game projects.
Let’s get started!
Q: Can you give us a brief introduction for the Dragons of Midgard?
A: Dragons of Migard is a medieval age metaverse P2E game. This will be a place where players can buy dragons, train them, rent them and even use them in battles. Dragons of Midgard will be a part of a bigger universe with all kinds of magical creatures. So our idea is to let people have a chance to hold these mythical and magical creatures in the metaverse as well as earn from these creatures. Players who hold dragons will be able to earn AURA and SOULS by fighting and conducting other activities in the game. In the future, we are planning to introduce human warriors, orcs, elves, magical potions, but we can’t give you the expected release dates for these as these are just on paper now and we are taking dragons of midgard game as a first stepping stone for the bigger universe in future.
Q: Please tell us about the Dragons of Midgard team. I’ve been preparing for the game for several months. How many developers are involved in the development, and I am curious about their development experience?
A: CIPHERS is the team behind the development of Dragons of Midgard. CIPHERS is a leading blockchain agency that has worked on many NFT projects and some P2E games in the past. We were part of some recent game projects on blockchain including Enter The Sphere on BCH and Warriors of Aradena on Ethereum. We have currently 30+ senior developers and 8 designers working on the Dragons of Midgard project. We were part of around 25 NFT projects for our clients in 2020 only. You can check more about us at https://ciphers.co/. Dragons of Midgard is the inhouse project of CIPHERS. Dragons of Midgard Project website and NFT art was completed in 3 weeks from idea to execution and our goal is to develop a playable p2e game within 1 year of ideation.
Q:Can you give us some information about the tokens in the Dragons of Midgard ecosystem and their roles?
A: The main tokens are AURA and SOULS tokens in the Dragons of Midgard ecosystem. AURA, which is the DAO token, can be used for voting to build an ecosystem as a governance token, and it can also be used for staking. When the project is first launched, AURA tokens will be traded on Uniswap.. SOULS tokens are in-game tokens that can be acquired through battles and can be used to foster dragons and purchase items. Raising dragons is valuable because it is also linked to gameplay and NFT value by allowing players to earn SOULS and increase the value of their NFT dragons.
Q: Can you tell us more about the AURA token sale and the details about it?
A: Release date of the token
December 22nd, 2021, 17:00 KST
Total supply of the token
100,000,000 AURA (100 million)
Token name and symbol?
AURA and AURA
Q:What’s the road map of DoM? Do you have a goal and vision you want to achieve?
A: Dragons of Midgards first goals in the game will be to acquire 5,000 active users. From there, we plan to attract tens of thousands users in the near future.The roadmap can be checked in the white paper. It’s possible to mint a dragon in January, 2022. We plan to launch our own marketplace that makes people use AURA to mint dragon In March, 2022, We plan to launch the Alpha Version in April, 2022, and then go through the Pivot process and plan to launch the Beta Version in December, 2022. Afterwards, the goal is to distribute the final version in February, 2023 by collecting community and improvement opinions. Future plans to expand Dragon Metaverse and mobile versions are included.The ultimate goal is to embody the Norse mythology, Midgard, in a virtual world. Through Dragon Metaverse, we plan to support players’ fun with more lands and content. However, please be aware that the schedule would be possibly changeable depending on the circumstances of the company.”
Q: What is the main difference between Dragons of Midgard and Axie Infinity?
A: “Axie Infinity has a limit of the number of earnings from the game which is superseded by our game. Because of our joining Tokamak Networks layer 2, Dragons of Midgard will have significantly lower gas fees than Axie Infinity. Additionally, within Dragons of Midgard there will be up to eight different battle terrains to choose from as the battlefield. This will increase the strategic and competitive points of the game. Both these factors will increase the amount of players that are interested in the game and strengthen the ecosystem.
Q: I wonder how many grades of NFT dragons are divided, and what are the characteristics of each dragon?
A: The dragons within Dragons of Midgard are divided into 25 species and 4 rare species. These species are graded based on the origin, attack type and territories. e.g. A fire dragon typically lives in lava mountains with gold mines and Ice dragon lives in snow mountains and cold temperatures etc. Venomous dragons most probably lives in deserts and forests. Each of these dragon types will be super effective against some types, and weak against others. This will further enhance the strategic aspects of the game as players try to discover what types provide them certain advantages in the game. You can check our whitepaper for more details and to better understand how this system will work.
Q:There are many IDO platforms, so why did the DoM team choose TONStarter? Could you please explain why?
A: First, we saw the potential Tokamak Network as a Layer 2 solution can provide for Dragons of Midgard, a P2E game. As playing the game on the Ethereum blockchain would cost the users a tremendous amount of gas fees, we wanted to look for teams who can help with the scalability of our game. While searching for suitable companies, we came across Tokamak Network and TONStarter. As we haven’t launched our AURA token and needed a company that can provide a scalability solution and help us with the IDO, it was only natural to form a partnership with them. Also, I heard that their first TONStarter project’s IDO launch was a great success and achieved 2000% of their funding goal. The first round of Dragons of Midgard also was successful, and we are currently conducting the second round of the IDO, which will end soon.. TONSTARter’s participants and funding are continuously increasing, and positive synergy with AURA token is expected simply by considering increase in liquidity of TON and TOS token in DEX.
Q: What are the minimum requirements for a user to have to participate in playing Dragons of Midgard?
A: Users will be able to participate in the game after purchasing 3 types of dragons at the beginning. Dragons can be minted within the marketplace using Ethereum, and can also be purchased using several tokens like AURA Tokens, TON, and Ethereum in the secondary marketplace. However, through the Scholarship system, tokens and NFT holders can borrow dragons after pre-purchasing them. This allows token and NFT holders to earn rewards for their rentals, and players can quickly enjoy the game. In addition, NFT holders will be given incentives by providing bonus AURA tokens. We plan to improve the game based on feedback from the community by adjusting the price of dragons according to changes in value.
Q: Can you List 1-3 Killer features of Dragons Of Midgard that makes it ahead of Competitors? What are the competitive advantages of your platform?
A: 1. Breeding and Evolution of Dragons
2. Multi Tier Earning system based on experience at minimum gas fees.
3. Become a part of magical and mythical dragon metaverse where humans, dragons, orcs, elves, gods, giants, witches lives together not in harmony and experience how to live in a medieval age with all these beings.
Q: Does your project support staking program? if yes. how is your stake system work what is the requirement for user, if they want to stake in your platform?
A: Yes we are going to have staking program soon before the launch of the game, So AURA token holders will able to stake their tokens and start earning money before the launch of the game. More details will be provided on the whitepaper soon. Our plans is to launch the staking in first quarter of 2022.
Q: How can I buy this tokens? Is it available on any exchange?
A: People who want to buy AURA tokens will able to buy from Uniswap from the 22nd Dec 2021 17:00 KST. Later we have plans to try to launch the token on some central exchange like binance and coinbase as well
Q: Can you explain how is your Tokenomics Distribution? How many tokens Will be minted ? And How many tokens Will be locked by the team?
A: You can check the details of tokenomics distribution on our whitepaper.
Q: Since NFT is popular nowadays, is there a plan for NFT integration?
A: Yes the game is based on NFT dragons, We are going to open minting soon for the Dragons NFT which will be require to play the game as whole. So the basic idea is that the game is integrated with NFTs, DAO Token and In game currency token.

Q: What is your strategy for building a strong community? Do you agree that the power of community will lead your project to develop globally? What services do you provide to the community?
A: Yes are planning long term for next 3 years now and our ultimate goal is to build a dragon metaverse along side the dragons of midgard game.
1. Dragons of Midgard Game: It will be a pvp nft collectible game which users will able to play hopefully before the end of 2022 this will be 2D game similar to axie infinity but loaded with tons of features and more earning possibilities. This game will be a part of bigger dragon metaverse in the future.
2. Dragons of Midgard Metaverse: The Dragon metaverse will be 3d metaverse with unlimited possibilites. The Dragon of Midgard focuses on Medieval Age. We are trying to mimic the Norse Mythology in a virtual world. Where humans, dragons, elves, dwarves, orcs, gods, giants, witches and so many other mythical and magical creatures live together. The main idea is to make commercial marketplaces in these kingdoms where user can buy plots and create different kinds of shops and these shops can generate more nfts which can be sold in the marketplaces. Also the dragon verse will have some more mini games other than the dragon of midgard game. So we are planning to take our vision and help people understand how is the life in medieval age and how they will feel if they live with dragons, gods and other creatures.
We are going to include multilingual support in both game and the metaverse. Also we are going to build up local communities for many local communities around the globe.
The Whitepaper you see just only for the dragons of midgard game as it is the first part of the project.
Q: Many projects have problems with UI / UX and this one turns off new users. How do you plan to improve the interaction with new users and with users outside the crypto space?
A: We have more than 13 years of market experience in developing user friendly frontends and interfaces. With our extensive knowledge in the field we are trying to make this game as much user friendly and non-crypto friendly as well.
All the developments goes through rigorous testing by experienced users and new users as well before launching in the market.
I would I like to thanks everyone for inviting to me to this great community.
Dragons of Midgard will be a part of a bigger universe in future with warriors, orcs, elves and so much more. Let’s be part of this magical metaverse. Public Sale Round2 on TONStarter will be open on 18th December. Those participating in Round 2 must have TON. You can participate on December 18th, 17:00 (KST).
We are a team of more than 40 individuals including blockchain developers, 2d designers, 3d designers and game developers. We are planning to expand exponentially in the near future in terms of resources.
Also we have more than 2 years+ experience in working on multiple blockchains including Bitcoin, Ethereum, Bitcoin Cash, Cardano and Solana as well.
So After Dragons of midgards you can expect warriors of midgard, dwarves of midgard, gods of midgards and so many more in near future with their unique mini games in future.
Our vision is to build a full fledged dragon metaverse in the future. As crypto currency is a very thriving technology we are looking to build a self sustainable metaverse with continuous upgrades and improvements.
