July 21-th BillionAir held an Ask Me Anything session with the ICOSpeaks team at our telegram chat.
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?
👨💻 Jay Wheeler – Head of Marketing – @JayWheel – I used to work in finance in the IT sector, but I decided to switch things up and dive into the world of crypto in 2017
Believe it or not, I’ve been dabbling in crypto since way back in 2013 when I used to buy and sell BTC on a P2P platform for about $50 a coin 🤯- and it has been quite a wild ride since then! My real passion and expertise is in marketing and operations, and I’m skilled at leading startup projects to success. That’s why I’m thrilled to be part of BillionAir as we set out to dominate the GambleFi space! Excited and happy to be here!
👨💻 Radovan Voda – Co-Founder of BillionAir – @tenradovan – Of course! I have a background in development, but turned entrepreneur in various fields, including e-commerce, healthcare, and primarily web3 in recent years. I’m super product-centric, and I have a strong passion for the products we create. I believe that every aspect should be carefully crafted with the user in mind and that attention to detail is key in creating a great things in general. After all, when we create something that truly make a difference in people’s lives, we can be proud of the work that we do. After 18 months of hard work it’s so exiting to finally launch the Pre-Sale that will end with releasing our product to the community!
👨💻 Oliver Mills – Head of PR and Comms – @Smints – Hi guys, I’m Ollie, nice to e-meet you all! I’ve been in and around the space for a while, I think since around 2016 for me, initially trading, followed by working in a content creation role for a trading and crypto education start-up. I moved into projects within the space around 2020, and it’s been one hell of a ride! That being said, as a writer, my experience goes back way further than that, having held virtually every role from Junior Copywriter up to Head of PR & Comms across 7 or 8 years. On a side note, I’m also a former English teacher! I love to teach, educate and help people grow, and try to reflect that in my writing as much as I can. I believe a huge barrier to adoption of blockchain is the language that surrounds it – it either bores people or scares them away. I’m on a mission to change that
2️⃣ Block 2 – project introduction by speakers
First set of questions to introduce the project!
Q: Can you introduce BillionAir to the followers please?
A: BillionAir is, at its core, a raffles and games ecosystem offering exciting and engaging entertainment and opportunities within an all-encompassing, borderless, and provably fair ecosystem. On a larger scale, it’s so much more than that, positioned as a bridge between web3 natives and the traditional and web2 markets and a connector and alternative for existing web3 and gaming projects to fundraise and engage their community.
Providing our core raffles product offering everything from luxury prizes and experiences, through to cash, digital assets and NFTs, in addition to a continuously growing selection of games, the BillionAir ecosystem offers opportunity and entertainment all-round. Built on top of blockchain technology, and therefore offering the underlying benefits available including tiered rewards, a deflationary token model and real yield staking, the opportunities are even greater.
Essentially, BillionAir is a contra bet to the current web3 gaming projects out there, providing innovative ways for projects and communities to fundraise while engaging users from many different communities.
Q: At what stage is BillionAir at right now?
A: In terms of development, we launched our MVP – our raffles core product – a couple of months ago now, and have been fine tuning it since then, with interest and engagement steadily increasing.
We have so many more developments to bring to the platform, with our tech team hard at work striving to grow the BillionAir ecosystem into the entertainment hub we have been envisioning for the last 18 months. We’ve actually put a slight hold on development of further platform features while we focus on our on-platform token sale, but you can rest assured there is much more to come!
Q:What can we expect from BillionAir moving forward?
A: A lot! We have our first exchange listing already in place, with $AIRB confirmed as a future asset on BitMart, and we will of course be listing on other DEXs and CEXs as we grow. In terms of the platform, you can expect to see the roll-out of our staking platform, revamped raffles and the expansion of our partner network to expand our offerings even further.
As mentioned in the intro of the project, the BillionAir ecosystem provides a platform for other projects to both fundraise and engage with their communities, along with an alternative method of offering their own assets, whether that be gaming NFTs, lucrative utility NFTs, or, well, anything really. The added benefit is, we gain exposure to their communities, they gain exposure to ours – everybody wins!
3️⃣ Block 3 – question from ICO Speaks team
Questions from ICOSpeaks team!
Q: It looks like you guys have a pre-sale campaign going right now, can you tell us a little more?
A: Yes, that’s right, BillionAir has just launched the pre-sale of our platform and ecosystem powering currency, $AIRB, with an exciting, ten phase structured sale. While the entire sale represents great value, the best value is on offer to the earlier investors.
These phases each have a luxury giveaway, with the phase one prize recently being revealed as a Rolex DayDate 41mm worth around $40,000! Each phase prize will be just as luxurious, with the total value coming to $400,000. To cap things off, at the end of the pre-sale we will be celebrating with two grand prize giveaways, with a share of $100,000 worth or $AIRB or a Tesla Model S Plaid up for grabs! That puts our total prizes on offer well in excess of $500,000!
Q: You mentioned above that you have a $500,000 giveaway, can you explain how users can participate?
A: Absolutely! So the best thing you guys can do is check out our article breaking it all down which, if it’s ok, we’d love to drop in at the end, but I’ll try to summarize it for you here.
So if you head over to billionair.com you’ll see a menu item at the top called ‘WIN 500K’, it’s all explained here. First, you need to take part in our pre-sale, with a minimum purchase of 1000 $AIRB (around $30) required to be eligible for the giveaways. This purchase earns you an NFT raffle ticket, which you can use in whichever giveaway you choose. As a HUGE bonus, we have a campaign running alongside, through which you can earn yourself an additional 16 raffle tickets by social actions and referrals!
As we mentioned earlier, there are ten phases each with a luxury prize, plus the two pre-sale closing grand prizes. Once the pre-sale is closed, all raffle tickets will be distributed and all giveaways will become available, with you having the opportunity to choose where you put your tickets. In theory, if you make the most of the system, you could have tickets in every raffle and win every single prize! Unlikely of course, but possible haha!
Q: What else has been going on recently? Any particular developments of note?
A: Well in terms of project news, we’ve had a couple of really positive developments recently. The first of these would be passing independent audits with SolidProof, fantastic news for us and our community, creating peace of mind over the security of our raffle contracts.
Next up, and this is really cool for us, we have recently been accepted into the BNB Chain Kickstart Program. This is a real show of strength for the BillionAir project, having to meet a pretty stringent set of criteria in order to be accepted. The program itself is an accelerator offered through BNB Chain providing huge amounts of resources, services and expertise that are going to prove invaluable as we grow and develop.
Finally, and MOST IMPORTANTLY, you guys are gonna want to listen to this one. We’ve recently implemented an on-platform referral system for our $AIRB pre-sale, and you don’t have to invest to benefit! If you head over to billionair.com, on the home page you’ll find an ‘Earn by referring’ button. If you click this and follow the instructions, you’ll be provided with a unique referral code. Copy this code and get it shared, for everyone who uses it to take part in our pre-sale, you’ll receive a 5% kickback bonus of their investment!
4️⃣ Block 4 – Community Voice.
The community asks the questions they are interested in.
Q: Where can I buy your tokens now?
A: Easy one!! On our platform! Head to billionair.com, they’re currently at the best price they’ll ever be!
Q: How does project increase the token’s value, liquidity and utility ? So that it can lead to an increase in token prices ? What is your plan to make your project stable and provide the highest return for investors in the long term ?
A: We’ve put a lot of thought into our token, $AIRB, and the sustainability of the model. We have multiple staking pools with lucrative rewards to encourage increased TVL, we have buy-back loops in place along with token burn mechanisms, all of which have positive impacts on the token price and stability.
In terms of value, all of the above will help, and as our ecosystem grows, so will the token utility, and therefore the value!
Q: While you build your project, do you take into account community feedbacks and demands?While you build your project, do you take into account community feedbacks and demands?
A: Absolutely! As mentioned in earlier q’s, we’ve only recently launched our MVP in the lasy couple of months, but given the fact our platfrom will be so heavily community focussed, with eventual plans to fully migrate to a DAO, community feedback and desires are very important to us.
Q: Do you have tutorial videos so we can get to know your project more clearly or do you have a YouTube channel or something? can you share it with us?
A: Funny how you mention this, that is exactly what we’re working on right now! Making the process as streamlined as possible for all of our users is priority ️️️️
Join our channel to be updated when its live:
Q: Regarding the current market situation is too unstable, to restrain investors. So can you give me some good reasons why I should buy your tokens in the current market situation? And also why should your token holders continue to hold?
A: Tough question, but I think I can answer!
You’re right, the market is not perfect, and investors are a little skeptical at the moment. But the fact is, if a project can’t survive in a market like this, it can’t survive at all!
The fact we’ve decided to go down the public pre-sale route rather than VCs and investors actually helps both us and our community in this respect, with us not having to deal with worried investors, and our community token holders not having to worry about VCs dumping their tokens for profit!
We want our community to be our investors, quite simply!
Q: Staking programme is very important for any project, Can i stake your token? Do you have any plan of starting staking programme?
A: Staking is an integral part of any web3 project and BillionAir wont miss a beat when it comes to delivering you those juicy yields! Expect staking to be live alongside token launch (after presale) and our most loyal $AIRB holders can expect returns of over 200%!!
Passive income anyone?
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: Sure, you can check out our latest tokenomics on the image below and you can find the full article here:
Q: Do you have any plans to attract non-crypto investors to join your project? Because the success of a project attracts more investors who haven’t yet entered the crypto world. What are the plans to raise awareness about your project in the non-crypto space.
A: In a word, yes!
Of course our initial target audience is the crypto familiar, but raffles are much more commonly known in the real world, and this is going to play a big part in attracting web2 users to our platform.
In addition to raffles, we’ll be providing a variety of other games and entertainment options, and creating a completely frictionless onboarding process that takes the fear out of crypto for those unfamiliar with wallets, smart contracts and all the other things they don’t fully understand!
