Andrew (BSC.News)

Hi everyone and welcome to the AMA with Cyball

Today we have @Bennybags joining us today to talk about their new and exciting project

Pleasure to have you here today :)

Benji

Hey @DrewtheAce and BSC.News, absolute pleasure to be here today, and thankyou for having us on to talk a bit about CyBall

Andrew (BSC.News)

Yeah, sorry about the delay there. Really appreciate that you could still make it!

So how this will work is, the AMA will consist of two rounds. The first round will be us going through the questions that I had prepared for you before hand. And then the second round will be a community round where I will open up the room to allow questions to come in. The second round is also where we will select the two winners of our giveaway

Sound good?

Benji

Yeah awesome that sounds great. And, no stress at all

Andrew (BSC.News)

Great, so to start things off


1. Please give us an introduction to yourself and the team behind Cyball.


Benji

My name is Benji, I'm one of the cofounders of CyBall. I've been involved in crypto for a few years, and am quite heavily involved in the NFT space atm

Our team is extensive, yet every single person plays an imperative role in the successful development of CyBall.

We have assembled an all-star team of ~30 members including developers, founders, product managers, marketing specialists, artists and passionate individuals to ensure that CyBall is formed to its fullest potential.

Andrew (BSC.News)

Oh wow 30 members is massive in this space

But awesome, super excited to hear more about the actual project itself

Benji

Haha yep thats right, we actually have a very large team with a lot of moving pieces involved

Andrew (BSC.News)

So with that...


2. What is Cyball?


Benji

CyBall is a football (soccer) based game that takes inspiration from a childhood favourite, Pokemon, as well as incorporating similar game and blockchain economy to Axie Infinity. It is a P2E NFT game

At its core CyBall will revolve around CyBloc NFTs where users can collect, trade, mentor and battle in CyBall matches using these CyBlocs.

Andrew (BSC.News)

Okay very glad you brought up the CyBloc NFT because that was my exact next question!


3. What is a Cybloc and how is it used within your ecosystem?


Benji

CyBlocs are the primary NFT characters that will be trained, collected and utilised in the in-game matches. They are essentially Cyborgs that have been born off of the Blockchain, hence the name CyBloc. 

You will be able to purchase these NFTs and then train them to form your team to get to the top of the leaderboard in CyBall

Andrew (BSC.News)


4. How do you go about training a CyBloc? Are there different rarity tiers?


Benji

Yeah great question. You will be able to train your CyBlocs in training mode, which is one of the game modes, in training mode, you will be able to train and level up your CyBloc. There is battle stadium, which is PvE, you go in and battle against computer generated teams. Or you can enter Hire-a-coach mode, which will automatically train your CyBloc. 

There are 5 classes that a CyBloc could be born into, Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum or Legendary. All increasing in rarity

Andrew (BSC.News)

Would it be possible to train a CyBloc from Bronze to Silver?

Or would it be more like, there are stats that cap out in the Bronze class

Benji

Not exactly. Whatever class the CyBloc is born with, that is the class that will stay with the CyBloc.

Andrew (BSC.News)

Makes total sense

Thanks for that clarification


5. Can you tell us more about your different game modes as well as in-game features that makes CyBall unique?


Benji

CyBall will have 3 PvP modes in total. These are Exhibition, League and Tournament.

In Exhibition Mode, users will be matched against others of similar team's average overall ratings.

The matchmaking system will ensure that the opponent will be randomly chosen from a pool or available opponents of similar rating, very similar to other games' MMR (matchmaking rating/ranking) systems. 

Because this is automated, it can be considered "ranked" but somewhat hidden; we plan to display teams' ratings based on the current line-ups users are using r for Exhibition Mode.

In League Mode, there will be matches to play every day / every two days using a round robin format because Leagues run season by season with ladders. At the end of a season the participants will be rewarded based on their ranking on the ladders.

In Tournament Mode, the format may vary across different tournaments depending on the duration and number of participants, just like typical esport tournaments you may have seen.

CyBall NFT Marketplace is our in-house marketplace where users can buy and sell NFT game assets such as CyBlocs, CyPods, Stadiums, and CyBloc body parts and wearables.

CyLoans is an automated guild/scholarship, or rather, an automated in-game character lending/borrowing system. It will allow everyone who has spare CyBlocs to be a Guild (a lender), and everyone who is looking for CyBlocs to play with to be a scholar (borrower). 

CyDex is our Decentralised Exchange. Here users will be able to buy, sell and provide liquidity for CyBall’s native tokens: $CBT and $CYB

Andrew (BSC.News)

Oh super interesting

Is CyBall play-to-earn?

Benji

Yeah correct. CyBall is a play-to-earn game. You will be able to earn rewards by winning matches within PvP mode ( exhibition, league and Tournament). With tournament mode potentially being sponsored by big names, and hence having even bigger rewards.

Andrew (BSC.News)

Super cool

So before we touch more about your ecosystem, let's talk a bit more about your tokens


6. What is $CBT and $CYB? How are they used in your ecosystem?


Benji

yeah sounds great

CyBloc Battery Token (CBT) is our main play-to-earn token with no fixed supply and will be released together with our game launch. Users can earn CBT by playing the various game modes in our game and can spend CBT on various features such as mentoring, items and upgrades.

CyBall Token (CYB) is our governance token which we currently have no fixed plan to release as we plan to have all eyes focused on our NFT and game release initially. However, we expect CYB to be the value-capturing token that will be given out as staking rewards and special game rewards for certain occasions such as end of league season or tournament prizes.

Both tokens will benefit the users of the game (i.e. gamers or CyBallers) through our Play-to-Earn mechanisms but also through various utilities that we have in place to support the CyBloc universe.

Andrew (BSC.News)

Okay nice

So can we backtrack a bit to your ecosystem

My next question would have been this:


7. Please tell us more about your ecosystem


Andrew (BSC.News)

But I had a question specifically about the CyLoans if that is okay with you


Benji

ah yep sure no worries. I did cover a a little bit about this. but will go deeper

Andrew (BSC.News)

Yeah it is just one quick side question

So say I had multiple spare CyBlocs, would I be able to lend that out to multiple people and potentially profit off that?

What are the incentives for lending and borrowing CyBlocs?

Benji

So CyLoans is a feature of our ecosystem that we have thought about quite extensively to solve a problem that a lot of P2E games are currently facing. And that's the imbalance between the supply and demand of scholarships ( as we've seen for Axie). 

this feature simplifies the whole process of finding someone to loan your CyBlocs to, as well as organising the payments that you agree upon.

Yeah that's correct, you'd be able to enter into the CyLoans function and find someone to loan out your CyBlocs after coming to an agreement on profit sharing

Andrew (BSC.News)

And this agreement is done through smart contracts?

Benji

It makes it really easy to find someone and also organise the logistics around the payments. And for someone who doesn't have the financial capacity to purchase CyBlocs, they can log on and find some to borrow and play with

correct

Andrew (BSC.News)

I see

Very neat stuff!


8. What chains does CyBall currently support? Are there plans to expand out?


Benji

So we haven't launched yet, this is likely to happen at the end of Q4, and we will be launching on BSC. We are also considering most other chains, more notably, Solana and Avax

Andrew (BSC.News)

So would $CBT holders on BSC be getting the same exposure as $CBT that is on other chains?

I guess what I mean to say, are token price uniform across chains?

Benji

Yep most definitely. We won't be looking to expand if we didn't have the capacity to (liquidity wise)

Andrew (BSC.News)

Awesome! Thanks for that info!

So last but not least


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


Benji

We have a lot of exciting news along the way. But I can't reveal too much right now.

I can say that we do have our genesis NFT drop coming really soon, mid to end of October. So everyone should stay tuned for that

Andrew (BSC.News)

How exciting!

And could you provide us with links to your social media accounts that you would like our community to follow?

Benji
