Hello everyone and welcome to the AMA with A-NATION! Today we have @AnationCEO joining us to talk about their exciting new project. Great to have you here :)


Good Morning from Southern California.

Stephanie (BSC.News)

Good morning 😀 Alright! Without further due, we will jump right into the questions. Sounds good with you?


yes yes, ready to rock n roll!

Stephanie (BSC.News)

Great, so to kick things off, for those who may be unfamiliar...

1. Please introduce yourself and the team behind A-NATION


My name is Kade Vu, I am the founder of A-Nation. Chuck Russell, Director, Producer, Writer, is our Co-founder. You might know his films which includes “The Mask, Scorpion King, Nightmare on Elm Street, Collateral, and many others. I, Kade, came from the stock world, starting to look elsewhere as I felt there was too many unknowns going in that world: unfair gaming of the system by industry giants.  My attention moved over to how transparent the crypto world was, allowing for a fairer gaming for all.  As I dove deeper into the blockchain, I saw it’s ability to really allow for true change in the current societal setting. At this point, I knew that the future was going to be on the blockchain.  Due to the Covid-19, I was able to take blockchain development course from Princeton.  After this, I took every dime I had and invested into a blockchain venture capitalist group based out of Singapore.  The logical bet paid off, I was able to walk away from the fiat world of action acting.  I called my talent rep and Management, telling them I was done being in front of the camera.  Chuck, on the hand, had a career that is older than the crypto market itself. He has produce some of the top films especially in the independent arena of film making.  The most powerful and important thing about Chuck that most people don’t know is his true passion for film making and his unwillingness to sacrifice his creative ideas for monetary gains hence after his big hits, he’s been quiet due to him standing his ground and not willing to sell himself.

Awesome! Thank you for that amazing introduction, sounds like you have an amazing team behind you and great project motive

2. What is A-NTATION and what’s the vision and mission of your team? How did the idea of making A-NATION come about?


A-NATION, in that the A letter has two meaning. First, it is defined as “A NATION OF ALPHAS, Alphas in that they are the best version of self not being better than another. If everyone truly was the best versions of themselves, wholly and fully, we believe the world would be a much place. Second, it also stands for “AUDIENCE” which is part of our mission statement. “WE ARE THE AUDIENCE AND THE AUDIENCE IS US” We truly want to encompass and believe that the community is one of the most important property to our ecosystem being able to grow and advance in the present but to also create great change for the future.  Chuck gave me a call to come in for ADR (voice over for filming) on Paradise City, film starring Bruce Willis, John Travolta, and I.  We were chatting in general when crypto came into our conversation.  Chuck told me about a project he was a part of, he said it hasn’t been long, only 6 months. I chuckled and said 6 months is like dog years, that’s 3 and half years. We went deep into what crypto was about, Chuck couldn’t believe no film maker ever tried to do what we are currently doing.  I explained to him, crypto is so new and that most film makers don’t have the pedigree or pull to be able to pull off the banking on their career to create a tokenized system. I explained that there was a few but they all failed or had to pivot to NFTs as those individuals did not have enough connection and pull to achieve it with great success. Chuck could easily go on with his life and enjoy monetary gains through the normal channels in the fiat world but he now understood that crypto can truly allow him the freedom to exert all of his creative power without being held back by the bottom dollar, that was how “THE MASK” came to be, he was allowed to take a story that was suppose a horror story and turned into one of the most beloved films to this date.  Chuck saw the writing on the wall, knowing he could pioneer a new way to finance film, taking away the control of other’s having on him then he perked up and truly understood the POWER it would give the underserved group of creative minds in the film industry.  The normal film industry always had an issue with equity, always needing to rely on funding that came from those that, again, care for the bottom dollar vs allowing the creative flow to be the primary goal, so films have started to just look like the one that came before it. Can’t blame the production companies for wanting to not risk their funds by copying a successful film but that leads to stagnation and clamping of creativity that could of brought about wonderful, mind bending films, otherwise.

Okay wow thank you for all that information! Let's unpack a bit as there was a lot I wanted to touch on. So first let's talk about your token

3. Can you tell us more about the $ANATION token?

a. Utilities

b. Tokenomics


sure, talk about a lot to unpack ;)

A-NATION is designed to forever change film financing by accessing the rapidly growing worldwide crypto ecosystem to create films and television for the global market. A-NATION will facilitate a new level of creativity and artistic freedom for filmmakers of all levels and allow the community to benefit from our success while truly being involved in every step of the filmmaking process.

A-FILM utilizes an independent production team to minimize overhead costs and stage upkeep. This empowers A-Nation to invest assets directly into high-quality productions at a fraction of the cost and time.

A-MARKET Limited NFTs directly linked to “A Day On The Set”, Behind-the-Scene, Cast, Character, Red carpet attendance, and Elite access to A-PAD. NFT contract will be coded for a 5% residual, deposited to a charity wallet. The A-NATION community will have consensus through a decentralized voting mechanism to vote for the charity(s) of choice.

A-PAD launchpad that will enable companies or projects to onboard blockchain technology to further improve their ecosystem.

A-VESTED Filmmakers compete for a slot in an auction, which can only be earned by acquiring the most tokens where the token holders are willing to vest (lock-in tokens for a period of time) into the creator’s project. In exchange for the slots, each winning project will have NFTs minted that will be exchanged for the equal value of ANATION tokens (at the time of vesting) that will be locked during film’s production. Holders who have vested will receive proportional ownership of project through these NFTs .A-VESTED Filmmakers compete for a slot in an auction, which can only be earned by acquiring the most tokens where the token holders are willing to vest (lock-in tokens for a period of time) into the creator’s project.

Holders who have vested will receive proportional ownership of project through these NFTs .

A-INCUBATE Developers, creators, designers, and entrepreneurs with unique ideas can access this platform to leverage A-Nation’s Ecosystem, bringing their unique ideas from creation to fruition.

A-MEDIA Independent filmmakers, underground artists, low budget projects, and all the underserved groups and individuals in every form of media outlets can monetize their projects on A-NATION’s streaming platform.

A-CHAIN onboarding of its ecosystem on its own blockchain, allowing full implementation of the technology which includes transparency, democratic governance, piracy protection, middlemen reduction, vertical integration, and most importantly, reclamation of one’s privacy. This blockchain will be the case study that demonstrates how this revolutionary technology can improve all facets of society.

And now to the Tokenomics:

A-NATION was created to bring the power of film creation to people who would normally never get the chance to participate in the film making process.

In order to make this dream a reality, a portion of each buy and sell is kept by the project as a tax. Those taxes are then split up and go to funding the film projects, token liquidity, paying for marketing and a large portion is returned to token holders to reward them for their continued holding of ANATION and also to discourage high-frequency swing trading. The film production wallet has 20% of the total supply so it is just like any other ANATION holder, it receives funds based on volume not price so our system is in lined with holder sentiment.  We rise, our holder rises.

Stephanie (BSC.News)

Okay nice! Thanks for that clarification

4.  Please introduce A-NATION features


  • BUSD rewards – 10% of overall tax, 4% from buys, 6% from sells are returned to holders in BUSD rewards enabling holders to earn rewards dependent on buy, transfer, and sell volume rather than token price.
  • Auto-liquidity – 4% of overall tax, automatically goes to liquidity, allowing for easier trading and price stabilization.
  • Auto-buyback with manual burn – 4% of overall tax is used to buyback tokens with a manual burn mechanism benefiting price action.
  • Locked Liquidity pool – The Liquidity Pool will be consistently locked with the ability to utilize decentralized voting to control the locked liquidity by the community of holders.
  • High staking reward – Token holders who stake will be rewarded with ANATION tokens at a daily rate of 0.08% interest. The auto-compounded daily interest also results in an annual reward yield of over 30%.
  • Box office rewards – BUSD rewards equivalent to 5% of net profits from the box office will go back to holders based on the number of tokens held but more importantly, rewards those that held the longest. For example, holder A and B hold 1 million tokens but holder A held for 6 months vs holder B who held only for 1 month. Holder A will received 6x vs holder B.
  • Decentralized Voting – An IPFS (interplanetary file system), decentralized storage system will be used to poll token holder base.

ONE OF THE COOLEST PART OF OUR SYSTEM IS:                                                                                Token/NFT gated-entry – A section of the A-NATION website will require private wallets to connect directly with the dapp, in order to access the privileged info in these sections including but not limited to footages, behind the scene, rare interviews, location scouting, or stunt rehearsals. Holders need to either hold a certain amount of tokens or a contract in the form of an NFT.

Overall solutions for film industry issue that could easily be replicated in all industries, we truly could become the ultimate case study  – Transparency, anti-piracy, democratization, decentralized voting, reclamation of one’s privacy.

Stephanie (BSC.News)

Brilliant, thank you! Lots to look forward to

5. Please tell us about the benefits and advantages of using A-NATION


OH YAY!!!! Trust me or go to our telegram and talk with our mods. They'll let you know I was close to death at one point to ensure our holders where taken care of lol. joking but not really lol

There’s just so many to list like the ability to own a film that continues to give residues just like an actor, producer, stunt personnel, or another others who were involved in the film, for example: when it goes to a streaming service or aired on any platform as rights to use it needs to be covered by said platform, sending those funds to all involved including the NFT contract owners of the film, forever. Receiving BUSD rewards equivalent to film’s net profit at the box office, preferential preference to those that held longer than just number of tokens held.

But the BIGGEST separator of A-NATION vs all others is that it is tied to a function that is older than the crypto market itself.  Chuck’s career is the FACT of why one should hold ANATION. It’s a proven function, no hypotheticals, his film’s have grossed over a billion worldwide.  The only question A-NATION needs to answer is, “CAN CRYPTO AID IN FUNDING FILM MAKING?” DISCLAIMER: NO FINANCIAL ADVICE GIVEN ;)

Stephanie (BSC.News)

Sounds good!

6. How does staking work on your platform?


We are currently testing out multiple protocols and will announce the best one to be utilized for our holders but simply there’s a wallet containing 30% of total supply that the staking rewards would come from.  A-NATION’s buyback tax will allow the staking wallet to stay topped off.

Stephanie (BSC.News)

Okay cool. We'll look forward to it

7. Are all of your SC in your company audited?


Yes, our smart contract is audited by Dessert Finance. We will continue to add more audits as contracts are added to our ecosystem to ensure we keep up with the quick changing landscape of the crypto world.

Stephanie (BSC.News)


8. Where are you on your roadmap?


To note, we are less than 2 months old, we took no venture capital funds, denied over a million worth to ensure A-NATION stay true to being about the people, organic and grass rooted.  Currently, we have a couple of options due to Chuck’s IPs (intellectual properties) As we know how the red market is slowing everything down but we are still developing and moving forward with the ability to pivot quickly.  Announcements will be made in it’s proper time to allow maximization of benefits for all involved in A-NATION.

Stephanie (BSC.News)

okay last but not least

9. Any exciting news you would like to announce here today?


Yes, our rebranding of A-NATION website is complete with our dapp running smoothly.



We are about a week out from staking announcement being ready and our token-entry has been in development, ready to be released before film production begins.  It will allow token holders to log into special sections of our websites to see never before behind the scenes while film is being produced.  It will also only allow token holders to be part of special mechanisms created in the A-NATION ecosystem.  Our first film production will more than likely, due to A-NATION being a hybrid system, a collaboration with a big named production company.  There’s a lot of NDAs in the film industry so we can not announcement until a production is green lit, meaning all contracts are sign and a GO.

Stephanie (BSC.News)

How exciting! Would you be able to provide us with more social media links so that our community could follow?


Yes, want to say thank you to BSCNEWS for allowing us to present our project to your community.





Stephanie (BSC.News)
