August 26-th held an Ask Me Anything session at ICO Speaks telegram chat. From the HogeFinance side, there was a Hoge Finance team.
👨💻Welcome to ICO Speaks, today we have Hoge Finance. HOGE is a deflationary, community driven token, with multiple use cases in development. Today representing Hoge Finance we have Zach – Reconlion (Head of NFT Marketplace @reconlion), Hunter – Wiser (Business Development Lead @Wiser29), Hayden (Head of Marketing @airydropper), and Joe Rocko – Jrocko3 (Head of Content Creation/Education @jrocko3) Hogeman ( Head of the HOGE Aerospace Institute @hogemanog)
We appreciate you all for allowing us to partake in today’s AMA. When not doing crypto I enjoy spending time with family, friends, and attending sporting events. I am passionate about crypto and the opportunities it affords us as early adopters. Currently, there are approximately 3% of all US adults investing or using crypto technology today. As an early adopter, we all have an important part to play in this space. I look forward to working alongside each of you all in helping shape this space for generations to come.
thank you for having us! I am a community maxi that enjoys pushing crypto in new directions, finding ways to innovate or launch never before seen products or approaches. this is what has me excited each day. Outside my work here we love to grow food or wander out into nature for a few days as a family but we always bring music. It is a must to relax properly.
Let’s get started!
Q: HOGE has been around now approximately 6 months. What have you all accomplished in this timeframe?
A: While we are young to this date we have accomplished some serious foundation. Our legally established DAO in Zug Switzerland is a proud feat along with being the first DeFi Meme token to complete a level 2 Certik audit which our current score is 91. Our success on this front allows us to move to building proposal flows for community voting and ways for anyone to use our brand or gather resources. During all this we have been patiently building non-stop to enhance our ecosystem at large, a major factor is the fact that we do not have a dev wallet of any kind, we are fully community driven and Everyone Is A Dev.
Well there is quite a bit in the past 6 months. Most of what we have done can be found on our website and white paper. HOGE began as the OG DeFi deflationary token. Since then, we have almost become the standard for what crypto projects should do. Such as legal entity, Doxxing team, DAO, and more. We have done some amazing things and our roadmap for the future looks incredible.
For actual technology, we (the community) has built multiple bridges, nft projects, launched their e-gaming tournaments, and had various outreach events with charities to drive actual value into to the world.
Some people like to develop defi technologies, some like to practice their art, and others like to sit in chat and post gifs. I think the biggest accomplishment is the building of collaborative structures, we solve the problem that companies have of “how do I build a good team”
With as many devs as passionate community members as we have, its difficult to quantify the exact multitude of ongoing projects. But thats the beauty of it. Anyone is free to bring their talents to hoge and create/join the projects of their choice. Tokenize your passions
Q:What does the future of HOGE look like with a DAO in place?
A: Great question! As we finalize our Hoge 2.0 campaign it will include site updates along with a new proposal feature. Our community members will have access to an equitable voting structure to not only propose ideas but potentially fund their business idea, project, or dreams. Being a vested community member allows you to bring these to the community for discussion, education, voting, and resources all around. It will be the most visible and tangible way of executing for our community.
HOGE is an open source brand so literally anyone, everywhere can do what they what individually. The DAO will be the direction the entire brand goes. This would include things like fundraising, exchanges, spending revenue, and eventually be used to perform actions. It’s amazing the amount of thought and detail going into this. As Hogeman stated, we are on our 4th refinement.
A traditional DAO allows for governance of blockchain-only technology. Hoge is developing a hybrid form where the non-profit will be chartered to execute and support the DAO, allowing members to vote & participate on-chain for real world impacts off-chain.
Q:What are some of the things your community is working on right now?
A: Like all things HOGE, everything is community generated and developed. At this time we have several community created initiatives such as the Hoge Aerospace Institute (which will be launching a satellite into Space), Hoge University (Crypto education platform), HOGE Accessibility (Developing bridges to various blockchains to help encourage development with community members and their native blockchains.
Current HOGE supported blockchains include ETH, BSC, Fantom, xDai, and BSC),building a community owned NFT Marketplace, Hoge Gaming with a recent addition of Mega Hogeman, (foundation of the 8bit game lab, redesign of Megaman), and several other very cool initiatives that you can find on our Reddit page /hoge. We are also currently raising funds for a Top 5 Centralized exchange.
Well, technically NASA will launch the satellite, we’ll just build it 🙂
This is quite the list, last time I checked it was about a 30 minute read. I encourage everyone to go to our Reddit page r/hoge and check out the stickied weekly post. I’ll post a subsection here:
Tech Projects Updates
1 NFT Marketplace (Stage 2)
1 Project Mangers: Reconlion & Mesh. We’ve got a name, we’ve got a logo. We’ve got Adam & Scotty. We’ve got globally revered soccer/futbol stars lined up. Huge progress is being made and building is expected to commence shortly. We will create value for artists and for Hoge and share that value with the world.
2 Hoge Faucet (Stage 3)
1 Project Mangers: Hogeman. The purpose of the faucet is where anyone can go around to obtain free Hoge via redistribution from others. Doge used to have faucets in the past and many early cryptos did as a way of having people experience crypto for minimal or no investment. It allows people to delve into crypto without much of an investment.
3 eGaming arcade (Stage 3)
1 Project Managers: Stripey & Zembahk. More and more building happening and there are already some sampling of games at https://hoge.fun (https://hoge.fun/)/
4 Hogemint Version 3 (Stage 4)
1 Project Managers: Hogeman. There will be some exciting new NFT templates to show off when this is launched! We at stage 4 meaning we getting closer!
5 HAI Space Program (Stage 3)
1 Project Managers: Hogeman & Aloe. Hogeman himself will post updates for this project but needless to say there is some VERY exciting new developments that will go well beyond just crypto. #NASA
6 HogeSwap (Stage 2)
1 Project Managers: Wiser. We are holding this close to the vest at the moment but we have a dedicated number of developers working on this at the moment.
7 HogeBridge (Stage 3)
1 Project Managers: Wiser & Z. Further coordination with AnySwap and other devs is being worked on to make a huge extension to the bridge that we already have.
8 GuardHoge (Stage 1)
1 Interim Project Managers: Davepool. HOGE as the guard dog of all crypto projects and protector of rugpulls. Leveraging our insanely decentralized community and supreme flat wallet to provide a service NO ONE else can because only HOGE is this decentralized. I will provide a much longer, substantive post about this later this week that will give us a sneak preview at what could be our absolute most killer use case and revenue bearing project.
9 Hoge ATMs (Stage 1)
1 Interim Project Mangers: TBD. Wouldn’t it be neat to be able to get Hoge from ATMs? Connect wallet, deposit fiat, convert to hoge or connect wallet, withdraw fiat from Hoge. Stay tuned.
Q: We see that HOGE has stated numerous times through various social media platforms the HOGEeverywhere hashtag. What does this mean to you?
A: Thanks for asking, we see that in order to be a community crypto, we need to be accessible to the entire community. This involves creating bridges to various blockchains and listing on reputable exchanges.It is our hope that anyone in crypto, new or old, will be able to find us and utilize us in ways they see fit. We believe that anyone in our community has the ability and is empowered to be a developer.
HOGE is a community token, we should be accessible to everyone, anywhere. The goal is to make it as easy to use and interact with as possible.
we are also founded in DeFi, access is one of the primary needs to encompass this lifestyle so others can benefit
Q:How many active community members does HOGE Finance have currently working on the project?
A: We currently have approximately 100 highly active members working on various projects or upkeep within the community. Because our DAO allows for open source of the brand. Several members of our community have taken it on themselves to develop things like Android Watch Backgrounds, Merchandising, Gaming, and WordPress plugins etc.
In addition to these passionate individuals, we also have our daily contributors and content creators that do YouTube Videos, Memes, Graphics, and NFT Designs. Each member of our community is encouraged to tokenize their passions.
HOGE Finance currently has several distinct communities (all can be found on our website). This includes Twitter, Discord, Reddit, Facebook Groups, etc.
As far as developers around 100 at the moment. We have many more though that develop content regularly and not in this list.
Shoutout to CryptoCamel, HogeFather, Hellcat, Katie Cans, To The Moon, CryptoPulse and many others!
Q: Is HOGE and it’s platforms going to be a crypto-inclusive community?
A: As a community-driven project this is an absolute must. Each bridge, be it technical or social, is a node to build upon, we intend to continually spider throughout the crypto ecosystem so we can spread positive awareness, push boundaries of technology, and allow anyone the opportunity to safely transact in whatever they see fit.
We are actively building crypto-inclusive platforms such as a free Educational Service to all as well as an NFT marketplace.
We feel that cryptocurrency is only as complicated as we want to make it, standing at the forefront of DeFi we have an obligation to encourage people to research & vet anything they are looking into prior, seeking out all these nooks & corners in crypto that breeds new ideas or approaches. Not only will encouraging inclusion benefit the individuals but all of us, this is how we bring forward new thoughts or products for launch. Innovation is key and inclusion is the door.
Definitely, we want to be a place where all crypto communities feel welcome. Our entire educational platform will be used as a benefit for all. Not only will it show new users the basics to crypto such as crypto security, and common terms, it will also show things like solidity and python.
The inclusiveness of Hoge Finance is what has allowed us to get to where we are today. A very passionate community creating a token destined for the moon
Q:Do you have Whitepaper if yes please share it with us and secondly do you have plans for pre-sale? Where can we join it?
A: hello! hogefinance.com has a link to our current whitepaper along with where to purchase and steps to do so 🙂
Q:Do you have your smart contract audit certificates? Have you done your audit already or do you hav any plans on doing it? If you have already done please share more details on that?
A: hi! we have conducted a level 2 audit by Certik and currently rating a 92 we share this on our site and onthe Certik site
Q: Investors are afraid to invest a new project because of so many rug pull and exit scam. How can you sure that there will be no chance of scam and I will be procurable??
A: any project or business in any sense can fail, that is a risk of not just crypto as an economy but business acumen as well. we have many leaders doxxed publicly as well as actively providing input/updates. our values CREATE – the T stands for transparency which helps us to achieve trust and A accountability
Q:Too many projects promise magic but never release any working product or prove any revenue, Within a short/long time of release. Is your project also like this? If not can u tell us, What makes your project different from other projects?
A: This is an excellent point, every single Roadmap items has been met except one, and there are over 30 items to date. Hoge Finance is not the level 1 technology of “a new blockchain”, nor is it the level 2 solution of “a new defi wallet”. Hoge is Level 3, it’s how you integrate communities, bring people on board, and teach them about cryptos. Hoge is an economy of solutions, investing in people first.
Q:Can you share to us your tokenomics? How much is the total and circulation supply of your tokens? Will there be buyback system or token burning in the future?
A: Absolutely, we currently have approximately 405 billion tokens in supply. We have burned 595 billion tokens. We have a 2% burn. Of this approximately a little more than 1% gets burned every transaction and the remainder goes to holders that hold on an ETH wallet.
We have a super flat wallet distribution with no single wallet owning more than 2% of tokens.
We do not have any plans at the moment for burns or buybacks.
Q:Things are changing so fast on a daily and weekly basis and it’s very challenging catching up with different chains and their improvements how those your project bridge that gap?
A: We have a competitive market research team that keeps up with the latest news and briefs our community on relevant changes.
Q:BSC is really in trending now because it has low gas fee and high transaction speed. Have you any plan to move on BSC?
A: HOGE is currently on ETH, xDai, Fantom, and BSC bridges. You can find us on PancakeSwap or PadSwap
Q: According to the roadmap, what are your most important next priorities? Does your team have enough funds and a strong community to achieve those milestones?
A: one of important is the voting platform. it will be the lifeblood giving any community member the voice or resources they could need to start something of their own. we are currently fundraising for a top 5 exchange which is another big milestone as well 🙂
we are fortunate to have one of the strongest communities around, everything done is through each of us. we will absolutely continue to achieve milestones and as we grow so will the milestones
Q:Nowadays, users are increasingly concerned about privacy issues when there are many user data leak cases in the world. So How does your Project solve this problem?
A: The information security team audits every piece of technology Hoge develops. Additionally, if personal data is to be stored it must comply with GDPR and other standards to ensure that people are protected. For DeFi technologies it’s about avoiding exploits, for everything else there are standard security practices.
Q:Is this platform suitable for Crypto beginners? Or does it only appeal to professional users?
A: it applies to both. hoge university will educate on best practices to different blockchains. our entire community being devs allows each of us to carry our future within Hoge Finance exactly how you wish. silent supporter, investor, creator, governance, NFTs, analysis. you will be surrounded by an awesome community where you constantly learn new things
