Let’s get started!
Q: What is MELI Games? Can you give a short introduction about the project?
A: MELI is a metaverse game set in the future, where Gynoids (Characters) live. All of the Gynoids, Items and land are all NFT assets, the assets can be bought and sold on our marketplace. Through playing the PVE, PVP and Quest modes you can win PCE and Meli Tokens! With these tokens you can Hatch new Gynoid NFTs and Level up your Gynoids to make them stronger.
Q: We would like to know about your team. Can you tell us a bit about the core team?
A: I’m very proud of the team that we have assembled. Let me introduce them
His whole life he has loved tech and disruptive innovation both from the financial and technical perspectives. This is probably because the spelling of his name “Alain” originates from Scotland where their national animal is a unicorn 🦄.

Q: How has the experience and background of your team been effective in the success of your project so far?
Our team has a diverse background from Blockchain, Gaming and Design. We aim to bring the same excitement that can only be found in your favourite video games into the Gamefi space!
We believe that making money is a core component of a P2E game, but fun is the most important value of any video game.
We know we can deliver a solid Gamefi experience and have the support of the industry while doing so!
Q: Please tell us about $MELI token! What are the tokenomics?
So we have two tokens in our game.
Our $MELI token is used for generating new characters. You can take two characters and then add some of our token to create a new one. Our other token is called clean energy, It is used to upgrade characters.
As for our tokenomics MELI has a total supply of 1 Billion tokens. I don’t want to bore you all with the numbers so here is a handy graphic straight from our website!
Q: Are you working on any partnerships or marketing initiatives to help build awareness for your platform?
A: We are speaking with multiple exchanges and launchpads, we believe there is big potential for MELI in this industry! We will be actively seeking out partnerships with leading GameFi platforms in hopes of growing our product and community.
We are on a journey at the moment doing Multiple, different AMAs to spread the word about MELI! Check out the awesome adventure we’ve been on!
We also have multiple community partners such as airdrop king and CryptoPhD. CryptoPhD has almost 4 years experience in the crypto industry!
We also have Tik Tok partners with many followers who will bring more people into the MELI space.
The more people we can get to learn about MELI, the more possibilities will be possible for future development.
You can stay in touch to learn more about future partnerships and events. We are just getting started and plan to make a big impact in the P2E genre.
Q:What do you think of the current state of the gaming industry and the future?
This question needs to be disassembled and divided into two parts. How do you view the future of the gaming industry? And how do you view the future of the blockchain game industry?
Most of Meli’s core team comes from the traditional game field, so we are very confident in the future of the entire game and will become stronger and stronger. Now there are even more global game users than mobile phone users and bank users.
We believe that the future of the blockchain game industry is more based on the influence of the NFT market. At present, it is very difficult for the NFT market to go out of the circle on a large scale, and it is difficult to pass only through art and collection. However, games have natural advantages in this regard. Assets are safer and revenues are more substantial. At the same time, it is easier to be accepted by any game user in the traditional industry.
This is the future of the gaming industry.
Q: What are your main features that set you apart from other projects and what competitive advantages do you have?
Some of our main benefits include; improved graphics and playability compared to other games. It’s also a lot easier to install MELI and get started to buy game assets.
We believe that our tokenomics are also a strong value, for example AXIE Infinity’s AXS circulation is quite high, at around 22%.
We are targeting a circulation rate of around 16% through buyback events. At the same time, compared with AXS, we have a better economic model and deflation mechanism.
We believe with our unique tokenomics and quality game design (and your support of course) we can reach new heights! So every player can benefit from the MELI token.
Q: What upcoming excitement can we expect from your project? Any upcoming events?
A: There are many upcoming things to get excited about! On 15 October, we will be selling our MELI NFTs on meli.games.
Definitely something you don’t want to be missing! We will also be having an upcoming IDO, pre sale and private sale. We hope to attract big investment companies to see the true potential of our project.
Q: I noticed that your website is currently only available in English. Do you plan to expand to further regions?
Yes of course, as a global P2E platform, we should break the language barrier where possible. In newer versions of our website we will be adding new languages such as Chinese, Korean, Japanese, Spanish, French, Vietnamese and I am sure the list goes on!
It is important for us to break these Language barriers as we also have various partnerships and support from these regions. I am sure we will soon break through into more and more areas of the globe!
Q: I think this is probably the most important question since you’re a games platform!.What games do the MELI GAMES team plan provide to their users? How do I join?
A: So we actually have a few, but our first will launch this month. Our flagship title is named after our studio, MELI! MELI will be launched later this month, with amazing play-to-earn mechanics! MELI is a sci-fi themed PVP/PVE battle game at it’s core.
Players can use the NFTs in battles, own NFT land, and even create new NFTs!
You can earn more MELI just by playing the game, it’s so simple!
Q: Who are your biggest competitors now? What are the advantages that your project can beat competitors?
A: So I would argue right now, we don’t have any competitors. Other games on/off ramps are very difficult and hard to learn. We eliminated any difficulty from earning real money with MELI. Of course the industry has big players but we aim to compete
Q: Why did you choose BEP20 network to build a project like this, are you ready to face the current problems of BEP20 network, token price drop, bugs and other bugs, give feedback your?
A: So Binance has fantastic infrastructure that eliminates any difficulty for people new to crypto, and those that are familiar and used to networks like ETH, BSC is a perfect partner. If you didn;t see recently BSC announced a $1 billion USD fund to grow crypto adoption and we hope to be working directly with Binance in the future
Q: While you build your project, do you take into account community feedbacks and demands?
A: 100% we are always listening to you directly, join our discord or Telegram to give us feedback or even share your ideas! Who knows they may even end up in the game!
Q: Do you have a Token Burning plan to increase Token value and attract Investors to invest?
A: We actually have an interesting concept, we work with a US based Trust Company to store the MELI token and reserves. This allows us to efficiently and legally operate buyback events. We want to make sure you earn as much as possible whilst also making it accessible for new players. This is how we know we can take the scene by storm!
Q: I seen that you have done many AMAs, my question is, what do you expect to get from so many AMAs and what are your goals with the community? Do you consider the community to be a fundamental role in the project?
A: Yes! thanks for noticing haha First of all we want to get the word out to the community to let them know about the project and get to know a lot more details about the project. And also to introduce ourselves so you can get to know the people behind the project. Secondly the community to us means everything, its why we built it, and who is going to use it so thats very important!
Q: Do you have a whitepaper if yes please share it with us and secondly do you have plans for pre-sale? Where can we join it?
A: We certainly do, why don’t you follow us on social media and check our website to learn more!
Q: What strategy will you implement to bring non-crypto-natives into your ecosystem? How do you keep a balance between developing the technology and also improving the value of your token?
A: We have a very easy on/off ramp that is all built into the game, whether a player is new to crypto or even new to mobile games it’s extremely easy to earn money with MELI!
