1️⃣ Block 1 – self introduction from today’s speaker
Before we go to the first set of questions, could you please do a short self-intro?
👨💻 Brian Black | Community Manager of MetaPlayers @brianblack44
My name is Brian Black. For those of you who are new to MetaPlayers, I’m the community manager. I’m located in the United States and I’ve been with the project since December of last year.
2️⃣ Block 2 – project introduction by speakers
First set of questions to introduce the project!
Q: Did MetaPlayers have a presale? If so, When?
A: Yes we had a presale that sold out very quickly. The token launched in December of 2021
Q: Can you tell us what MetaPlayers is all about?
A:I will be as brief as possible. However, there is a lot to our project. So, forgive me if I’m a bit long winded. However, I want to make sure the community has a good understanding. So….
In a nutshell, we are an eSports company whose main priority is to bridge the gap between two of the fastest growing industries. Esport and crypto. We launched our token in December of last year and have been moving forward ever since.
The MetaPlayers Universe encompasses several main facets
Gamerland, our physical gaming venue and eSport Arena franchise
-It’s the pilot project of the MetaPlayers Team
-It a very large gaming venue and Esport Arena
Esportmanager.com, which allows users to Create and organize your own esport tournaments as well as challenge others in some 1V1 action
-It has it’s own automated bracket system
-customizable user, team and organization profiles
Basically allowing anyone to organize and run their own gaming tournaments, challenge other users in some one on one action, and will have a match betting feature. It is currently in its beta phase. And of course $FPS will be the native currency of esportmanager.com
Metaplayers.gg which is the the main hub for everything in the MPU
Here you’ll be able to sell and buy gaming NFTs
You’ll be able to access P2E games
Create personal and team profiles
These customizable pages let users and partners alike promote themselves and build up their MPU presence and persona.
Offer educational and coaching video content
And it will be the point of contact for those wanting to utilize the MetaPlayers Agency
Beta version will be released in July
If you don’t mind, I would like to touch briefly on the MetaPlayers Agency mentioned above
The main principle behind the Metaplayers Agency is simplifying the entry of crypto industries into eSports sponsorship which will enhance our entire ecosystem.
The metaplayers Agency will search for and connect partners, sponsors, organizations, eSport players, merchandisers and content creators while finding beneficial business opportunities for every participant
For example, say a professional gamer is looking for an eSport team, we can hook them up
Or an Esport team is looking for a sponsor, or a sponsor is looking for a team, we got them too
Or maybe a Sponsor is looking to back an eSport tournament, or a crypto company is wanting to provide tournament prices or sponsorship…we have the database an infrastructure to provide all of that
There is a great video on the MetaPlayers Agency as well as espormanager.com and metaplayers.gg on our youtube channel:
All of these platforms and services of the MetaPlayers Universe are powered by our native crypto
Hopefully that helps your community understand what we are about. Thank you for allowing me to explain.
Q: What does FPS stand for?….Why not call it MetaPlayers token?
A: FPS stands for First Person Shooter
The reason we chose that name is…
Because we are currently in contact with other gaming companies and game manufacturers to use $FPS token as their native currency as well.
So, we chose a name that lends itself to the Industry without tying it solely to MetaPlayers. Helps with expanding it outside of our own platforms
Q: What are some of the major milestones the MetaPlayers team has achieved so far?
A: Oh wow…there are so many. Let’s see if I can keep this brief. LOL Well, so far, we’ve hit every single piece of our roadmap on schedule. Also, As mentioned early we have a revenue generating physical venue in Gamerland. We successfully launched our token in December and sold out in very short order. We have a esportmanager.com in beta, just weeks away from the next phase of that. You can actually go there now and create your own profile.
Were also just a couple of weeks away from launching the beta version of the metaplayers.gg platform in July. We unveiled fpstoken.gg (A dedicated website concentrating just on the token….this is for investors like most of the people listening to this)
It’s basically a one stop shot for everything an investor could want. We previewed a new Metaplayers P2E arcade machine that people will be able to order to place in arcades and pubs. You can find that demo on our youtube channel.
We have secured enough funds needed for marketing and development for the next year. So we’ve locked those wallets. I’m missing something….let’s see.
Oh, we are currently working on our own NFT line. We are working with several talented artists, on what I can personally say is a very badass looking collection, in which the utility will be must have for anyone using the Metaplayers platform.
Sidenote: we already have a fixed spot on Binance nft market. Oh, and FPS Staking – Because when we move over to centralized exchanges in quarter 4 you will know longer be able to receive FPS reflections, we’ve decided to replace this passive income by implementing staking.
We have already secured a partner and a chosen CEX for this. I can’t say much further on the CEX. However, I can tell you that it is one of the biggest.
Oh yes! there are couple of other things that i’ve been told that we can’t mention yet. But, I can tell you that one of these things is so HUGE that you wouldn’t even believe it. But, I will go as far as saying that it will completely change the game for the MetaPlayers Universe and our FPS token.
I think that is about as brief as I could be with that. We have accomplished a lot in just 7 months.
3️⃣ Block 3 – question from ICO Speaks team
Questions from ICOSpeaks team!
Q: What kind of partnerships with different projects/platforms/protocols can we expect from metaPlayers in the future? Can you give us some examples of how other projects can leverage MetaPlayers?
A: First of all we have already partnered with several projects in the space. But, we are always being approached by and searching seeking partnerships with web3 companies who have the same vision and goals as we do.
You can see many of our partners on the fpstoken.gg website. We have constant collaboration meetings with service providers in DeFI and gamefi, wallet providers such as this one, marketing and sales projects, as well as many centralized exchanges that have reached out to list us.
Last but not least we are open to any Gaming/Esport/play2earn projects who wants to join the MetaPlayers universe and would like to build the future Gaming ecosystem with us.
Q: Gamerland is Awesome! Currently it’s in Budapest, Hungary. Will it be the one and only or can we see more Gamerlands in other regions as well?
A: Of course. We don’t want to keep the most amazing gaming venue and eSport arena to ourselves.
The Gamerland franchise does have plans to franchise this out. With talks already happening to expand in Europe as well as Asia and the United States. In fact, we are currently considering expanding the utility of the $FPS token to include a sort of governance feature. Allowing holders to vote on where we might plant the next Gamerland franchise.
Q: The vision and mission of MetaPlayers seems very solid. But from long-term perspective, it requires continuous user volume on the platforms. What marketing strategies do you have to secure the credibility of your project’s reputation and enhance the popularity among the public?
A: Excellent question. I think I can take this question with some confidence.
In regards to user traffic, we are definitely going to shift our marketing focus to the gaming community.
We’ve partnered already with Leet, which is a pretty large eSports broadcasting channel on Twitch.
We have several gaming influencers that will be announced soon that will be promoting and representing our brand through there social channels, as well as Twitch. We have the Metaplayers branded P2E arcade machines. Imagine walking into your local arcade of pub and seeing that machine branded with the MetaPlayers name.
We already have a current Valorant eSports team that plays under the MetaPlayers brand. Not to mention the fact that we will be expanding to include more teams for more games. As well as several partnerships with gaming companies and manufacturers to use $FPS as their ingame currency.
So to summarize, we will basically be going after every facet of eSport and gaming
Q: As a cryptocurrency investor, I am concerned about the development of the crypto. Could you tell me the reason why I should choose your token instead of others? What are the advantages that can convince me to change my decisions?
A: Absolutely! not to seem arrogant, but I would say that we are better than 99% of the other projects in the BSC space. Actually we belong somewhere in the top 100 of all crypto projects in existence. In my humble opinion.
We obviously have tremendous utility as well as many opportunities to expand those use cases. We already have a physical venue that generates income and connects us to the real world
And we are solving a major problem in one of the largest and fastest growing industries, Esports. Through our MetaPlayers Agency, we are connecting eSport teams and companies, with sponsorships and promotion opportunities. While at the same time, through metaplayers.gg and esportmanager.com, allowing normal everyday gamers to make an impact in eSports entertainment.
Q: If players are satisfied and co-partners increase around the globe, both the price and value of the tokens will definitely increase. What actions do your team have in future to make the whole playing ecosystem more robust and attractive to players?
A: We have put together a dedicated team of eSport professionals whose only job is to make esportmanager.com and metaplayers.gg as easy and user friendly as possible.
This team iincludes blyyyplays, a well-known streamer and professional PUBG player, Dom, former Counter Stirke::GO player and founding member of MPGG and Gamerland, along with two other esport players
These guys are working on some amazing stuff: such as reward systems, collectibles, daily and monthly challenges, as well as many other things to make The MetaPlayers Universe an exciting and enticing place to be.
This team works closely with our professional web development team to make things as seamless and as straight forward as possible.
4️⃣ Block 4 – Community Voice.
Community asks the questions they are interested in.
Q: According to the roadmap, what is your most important next priority?
A: This is a good one. to answer it quickly, our next important step is the launch of our metaplayers.gg platform in Beta this month.
Q: Do you have any plan for burning tokens in the future to reduce the supply of the token and increase its investment attractiveness?
A: Also a great question. I’m not positive about the future of burning $FPS tokens. However, we do send a portion of our liquidity tokens to the burn address. Therefore making it impossible for us to drain liquidity, thus making this rug proof. I know that is important in this space.
Q: Currently from where i can buy ? Is it possible that I can get only by holding it?
A: Currently you can buy $FPS on pancake swap. You can find a link to buy at fpstoken.gg. Also, if you look at our roadmap, you can see that we have plans on being listed on major exchanges toward the end of this year.
Q: What is your strongest advantage that you think will make your team leading the market?
A: Our biggest advantage is that we are a first mover in this space. We are bridging the cap between two of the fasted growing sectors in the world’s economy….eSport and Cryptocurrency.
Q:IS This Your project only for elite investors, how about others with small funds, is it open to everyone?
A: This project is open to everyone. Both investors as well as gamers. If you have the patience to buy because you believe in our vision, and to hold, not chasing quick profits, but long term HUGE life changing profits….then this is the project for you.
