Andrew (BSC.News):

Hello everyone and welcome to the AMA with Epic Hero!

Today we have Mr. J the Chief Partnership Manager at Epic Hero here to answer some questions about their exciting new play-to-earn gamefi platform

Welcome @MrJarvisP

MrJ:

Hi Andrew thanks for having me here.

Andrew (BSC.News):

My pleasure

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 with you?

MrJ:

Very exciting.

Andrew (BSC.News):

Okay so let's get started then


1. Please give us an introduction to yourself. What is your background while in/prior to crypto?


MrJ:

Good evening and thank you for having me here Andrew, we appreciate the opportunity to come here and talk to your users about Epic Hero.

For those that don't know me my name is Mr.J and I am the Chief Partnership Manager for Thoreum Finance and have had the pleasure to be working with them and their Users full time since Thoreum's inception

Personally, I have been working on and off and investing in crypto for around 7 years but only recently started working full time in the crypto space, my background is in Management, Advertising and Social Media my Bachelors Degree is in English Language from the UK and have further studies in marketing, social media and finance.

Before working with Thoreum I worked primarily in marketing, working for a large real estate developer, before taking over the sales, management, advertising and social media for that business.

Though I have enjoyed these roles, none of them compares to being on the forefront of forging a new path in the, as yet uncharted regions of DeFi, being one of the early pioneers and having the opportunity to guide and shape this interesting new space is so exciting and can't wait to see the landscape of Crypto that we are all building together.

That's a little background on me and my involvement.

Andrew (BSC.News):

Okay that's fantastic

But yes these are for sure some exciting times to be involved in DeFi


2. What is Epic Hero and what are you trying to contribute to not only DeFi but the gaming industry as well?


MrJ:

Thanks for the question.

Without any doubt, we are proud to say that Epic Hero will be the biggest 3D NFT War Game on the Binance Smart Chain Network.

The First Ever Play-To-Earn game that rewards its NFT holders with BNB for simply holding their NFTs. This amount of BNB is equivalent to a 5% of all token transactions and NFT marketplace transactions tax, divided amounts holders. This innovative mechanism gives the Epic Hero NFT holders great passive income, overtime, simply by holding the NFT in their wallet.

So those not even engaging in epic gaming need not worry about their NFT value, as simply holding their NFT cards gains passive income, over time, in the form of BNB, and this feature will make EpicHero NFT cards even more desirable and popular between non-gaming users.

As the world’s first NFT to give holders reflection rewards in BNB, EpicHero is expected to be a true game changer, and the next big element to boost Thoreum’s long term success, Thoreum being Epic Hero’s long term strategic partner.

Andrew (BSC.News):

Okay very neat so by simply holding the NFTs users can earn some passive income

and of course they can use these NFTs to play the actual game itself correct?

MrJ:

Yes its something totally new and exciting for our users.

Of course

There is a dual function. That will appeal to different types of users.

Andrew (BSC.News):

Great, so to touch more on the game itself


3. Many play-to-earn games that are coming out seem to look and feel very bare bones in its gameplay. How is Epic Hero different?


MrJ:

I know exactly what you mean, we have seen and experienced that in our research.

Epic Hero is created to bring about the most unique gaming experiences on BSC. Summon, Merge, Fight, Quest, Join a Clan, Hire a hero from other users, own your land and invade others. We have many activities planned for users to Interact and Show Off their Collection. We are especially excited to announce that we shall be the first NFT game to pose two armies, consisting of thousands of users against each other in 1,000 vs 1,000 battles; these players can fight alongside each other with the chance to win enormous prize pools on a monthly basis.

Each Epic Hero’s NFT has a stunning 3D graphic, unlike other projects with just 2D NFT graphics, our NFT is truly 3D, users can view their hero in high definition and rotate them 360 degrees with a zoom in and zoom out function, a unique feature not yet implemented in any BSC NFT game.

Collect and build an unstoppable force of characters by choosing from your favorite heroes from Greek, Norse, Chinese, Japanese, Egyptian, Indian and Roman Mythology. Not just limited to 5 cards or 30 cards like other NFT games, Epic Hero’s users can summon, merge and evolve thousands of Collectable Epic Hero Battle Card NFTs and bring them to the largest arena on the Binance Smart Chain, to do battle against other Epic Heroes.

Andrew (BSC.News):

Oh wow that is very neat, the idea of a diversified collection of NFTs so that people of all backgrounds would be appealed to them

MrJ:

Yes with plenty of options to franchise also in the future.

Andrew (BSC.News):

Also in these large two army battles, users can wage different crypto assets to win?

MrJ:

We shall have to see, we always like to keep a few cards up our sleeves.

But don't worry anything that the users think will increase their enjoyment the devs will be happy to work on for them.

Andrew (BSC.News):

Gotcha

So as we know, the gaming industry is massive on an international scale

However, not all gamers are familiar with DeFi protocols and how to access them

MrJ:

True

Andrew (BSC.News):

So my question is, as a DeFi gaming platform


4. How have you lowered the barrier of entry for gamers who may not be familiar with DeFi or NFTs?


MrJ:

We have many different Play to Earn options available to our users, which we know will appeal to all experience levels, meaning that anyone and everyone will be able to find somTop players every week are awarded a sum of $EpicHero tokens. Winning these prizes regularly will greatly increase your $EpicHero bag, which will continue to rise in value with the success of the game.

ething entertaining, exciting, engaging and profitable.

This freedom allows players the opportunity to choose their preferred way to play and earn.

Firstly they can Just hold NFTs & Profit.

Epic Hero is the first ever NFT game that rewards its holders with real money just by holding EpicHero NFTs in their wallet. Users are paid 5% in BNB everytime there’s a transaction of EpicHero, making it an ideal passive income source. The more NFTs you hold the bigger the reflection rewards without playing anything in the Epic Hero system. For most users who are not familiar with Defi or NFTs,  this experience is epic!

Secondly for those who are casual gamers, who play often!

With $EpicHero being earned both for winning and for playing regularly, make sure to play at least 10 matches per day to ensure you collect your weekly bonus. Be strategic with your $EpicHero and decide whether it is best to hold it, or use it to recruit.

For more hardcore gamers! Who want to be the best!

Top players every week are awarded a sum of $EpicHero tokens. Winning these prizes regularly will greatly increase your $EpicHero bag, which will continue to rise in value with the success of the game.

And if you are like me and just love to collect, and need to have one of everything.

Become an NFT Trader or Collector. Experienced users can use our decentralized marketplace to spot an opportunity to buy low and sell high trading any NFT they choose, or just collect hundreds of affordable NFTs to get the auto reflection rewards and sell them when the price is favourable. Thanks to Epic Hero marketplace and our innovative NFT static rewards mechanism, users have many choices to improve their earning by trading or collecting Epic Hero’s NFT cards.

I wasn't joking when I said we had something for everyone!

Andrew (BSC.News):

very neat stuff, but just out of curiosity with rewards so large and with so much potential... Do you have any mechanisms in place to ensure that players are not cheating or botting their way to win tje top player rewards every week?

MrJ:

Of course, as with all our projects fairness and safety are the top priority. We will have measures in place to make sure that these activities will require real peoples interactions to activate them.

We have learnt from the mistakes of other such projects and intend to lead the way in fair play and community driven engagement that is fun, profitable and brings people back time and again.

Andrew (BSC.News):

Awesome thank you for that clarification


5. What utilities do your NFTs offer aside from ownership? Can you tell us more about the 3D NFTs and how they can be used in-game as well?


MrJ:

EpicHero battle card NFTs drive EpicHero’s collect, trade and game-focused ecosystem. EpicHero, requires each player to hold at least 1 NFT card to play. 

Future games like 3 vs. 3, 5 vs. 5 and Thousands vs. Thousands will require players to have larger decks. Cards require $EPICHERO to be minted and the proceeds fund the game’s play to earn mechanics.

The EpicHero DApp allows users to connect their BSC wallets and purchase, view, trade and battle NFTs. EpicHero battle cards are assigned stats and features that affect ingame activities directly. The value of a EpicHero card is determined by the scarcity of attributes that it possesses.

Andrew (BSC.News):

And would you be able to tell us a bit about the attributes?

Are the attributes purely aesthetics or utility?

MrJ:

If you hop over to our website you can see some of the sweet visuals there already.

Attributes which make the characters stronger more resilient faster and their special abilities.

Some of these attributes will be very rare indeed and become very highly sought after.

Andrew (BSC.News):

I see, understood


6. What is $EPICHERO and $THOREUM? How is it used on your platform or in-game?


MrJ:

Thanks for asking, the two different tokens provide different in-game and out of game utilities. I will list some of them for you.

EpicHero ($EPICHERO) is the token that powers the EpicHero NFT game. You can use $EPICHERO in game or just hold it to earn BNB reflection rewards.

$EPICHERO is acquired by winning battles, completing quests, or simply participating in games. $EPICHERO is also required for expenses when challenging dungeons and upgrading your equipment. There are many other activities that require the EpicHero token, namely: summoning, merging, leveling, buying accessories & weapons, changing skins, buying & selling land, hiring other’s heroes, farming, etc.

$THOREUM is the platform token required to interact with Thoreum NFT Platform.

$THOREUM use cases for Epic Hero include interacting with the  NFT Marketplace to buy & sell heroes, summon a new hero and level up an existing hero.

Do your users know about Thoreum? Would you like a brief explanation of their project?

Andrew (BSC.News):

Yes that would be great!

MrJ:

Thoreum ($THOREUM) is a hyper-deflationary token built with innovative tokenomics and earning features, designed to be Safemoon 2.0.

 In only 2 months after launch, Thoreum has won over a community of over 44,000 loyal holders, who witnessed its price steadily increase even during the most recent BTC bear market. 

EpicHero will use Thoreum’s ITO platform to launch EpicHero presale, and Thoreum NFT Platform's marketplace will help users buy & sell their EpicHero NFTs.

Summoning a Hero cost Thoreum tokens

You can summon your hero through the hero summoning page. You need to pay 10,000 Thoreum Tokens ( this number will be dynamically adjusted based on Thoreum price) for each hero. In the future you can pay by any tokens in the Thoreum Alliance with a discounted price ( ThunderADA, ThunderBNB, ThunderCAKE, ThunderETH and more).

Leveling up cost both EPICHERO & THOREUM

The heroes are all level 1 in the beginning and can be upgraded by consuming EPICHERO and THOREUM token. The higher the level, the more token are required. The higher the level, the more rewards can be obtained from in-game activities.

I'm sorry I seem to have got a little off topic. I get so excited talking about these features and quite often get ahead of myself.

Andrew (BSC.News):

No worries haha! Thank you for all of that information

MrJ:

Yes users have been asking all these questions and I am so happy to be able to finally give some of them out.

Andrew (BSC.News):

Being as that Epic Hero has Thoreums support and with great features that could be expanded out for DeFi users everywhere, my next question is


7. Would you consider expanding to other blockchains in the future such as ETH mainnet or Solana?


MrJ:

The short answer is yes, we have a plan to expand to Polygon and then Eth.

After this Solana

And Cardano too I believe.

All of the coding for these bridges is already hard wired into the project so its as simple as flicking a switch. But we think the BSC is the right place to start and build from here.

Andrew (BSC.News):

Okay wow so very ambitious and looking to expand into the big blockchains

Let's touch back on Thoreum for a second

MrJ:

Thoreum has already set that up for us.

yes good idea

Andrew (BSC.News):

It seems that Thoreum and Epic Hero are almost integrated at this point and I was just curious


8. What made partnering with Thoreum the right move for your project?


MrJ:

Thoreum is famous for pioneering reflection rewards tokens and continues to grow steadily with an ecosystem of effective rewards tokens. 

Thoreum is a rare success story when it comes to rewards tokens on the BSC market and has already awarded its holders over 14 million USD in the first 2 months since launch. 

With a growing community of over 45,000 investors, Thoreum has established its reputation as a resilient project with no signs of slowing down or stopping any time soon.

All of this, whilst continuing to bring exciting new projects and long term value for their holders.

As the world's first NFT to give holders reflection rewards in BNB, EpicHero is not just a game, but a pioneer in the defi field. This is why we chose Thoreum as our key strategic partner.

As one of our earliest investors and strategic partners, Thoreum Finance will finance and assist our projects in raising capital and brand awareness, by exposing us to their great community of investors and integrating us into their NFT ecosystem.

Thoreum also has a history of raising millions of USD for other successful projects through their launch platform. 

In our strategic partnership, Thoreum has invested in EpicHero.io, becoming our project’s official publisher and will have $EPICHERO’s launch on Thoreum ITO platform on Sep 13th, 2021

That's right those who are listening in, there you go 13th Sept 😉

Andrew (BSC.News):

Wow it sounds like Thoreum and Epic Hero's partnership is bringing the best out for the upcoming game in terms of extra features to reward all users

MrJ:

Its all part of the bigger ecosystem being built at Thoreum

Thoreum+Thunder Alliance+ Epic Hero its going to be awesome, each platform building up and adding to the others. We are super excited.

Andrew (BSC.News):

So if other play-to-earn games were to join the Thoreum ecosystem... would users till recieve the same amount of attention and support from Thoreum?

MrJ:

Of course, every project builds on the previous ones, none are left behind, just look at Thoreum or ThunderCake the first two tokens launched they are highly advertised and we are still finding more utility and use cases for them every day.

Andrew (BSC.News):

Great

Don't mean to be a downer, but I feel as though this next question is very important for users who are looking to be involved in a project longterm


9. When the bear market comes and your users are faced with high sell pressure, how will you ensure that your project remains strong and your team stays dedicated to the project?


MrJ:

We don't shy away from difficult questions. They are all important.

Long term development & long term benefit for investors is our main target, which is also why we chose to be strategic partner with Thoreum, the project that has been battle tested and has the right recipe for resilient long term growth, even in bearish periods of the market.

It's a combination of built in strengths of the tokenomics, multiple innovative use cases, talented & dedicated team, focus on delivering a SAFU project, and strong, proactive marketing.

For EpicHero's long term growth, we have burn mechanism; 1% built-in in each transaction, therefore the more time the token is in circulation the fewer tokens there are and the rarer they become. We also have reserve funds like Thoreum's 5000 bnb Thor Thunder, that’s the best warranty during a bear market.

The multiple use cases, from play2earn, collecting to simply holding for passive income, makes EpicHero friendly to anyone, and attractive in various states of the market.

Backing us through the rain or shine is our strategic investor Thoreum, who has very strong financial as well as user base support, they have a famous community of diamond hands investors. Through the hard times in the journey with Thoreum they have learned about how to invest in a long term x100 potential project like Thoreum and we believe we can have the support from them over here at Epic Hero.

Andrew (BSC.News):

Yeah, very glad to hear that this has been well thought out and planned in the event of a market crash

Shows that despite market condition, you guys are here to keep moving forward

MrJ:

Every stage of the market has opportunities for crypto savvy investors.

Andrew (BSC.News):

So last but not least

Community Questions: 


I see EpicHero plan to make PvP Arenas on 1 vs 1, 3 vs 3, 5 vs 5 and Infinity vs Infinity. I am familiar with 1 3 and 5 but can you please explain how infinity arena work? Will it be something like a guild war or last one standing? Are the rewards different for each of these arenas?


MrJ:

Yes we are proud to be the 1st one in the market that can bring thousands together at the same time, and each of those users  can bring thousands of their NFTs together, in an epic scale battle every month, it's the infinity vs. infinity mode where guilds are competing with others for a rewards in huge cash prizes.


As you can see, with the support of Thoreum we are building not just a gaming project but a NFT Ecosystem to invite more and more quality games and devs to join us. We have our own launch pad which raised million USD for many projects, our own market place for buy & sell NFT, a strong and growing community of 300,000 users and 60,000 holders. There are many other projects in the pipeline, and we have one planned that is exactly what you are referring to. But each project on Thoreum must be different, be attractive to new users, bring something new to the Defi space and assist Thoreum with its burn, whilst continuing to build on the ecosystem that has already been established within these projects. If a project provides all these requirements, we are happy to go ahead with it, but only then.


Steven Johnson:

Currently most investors only care about profits at the moment but ignore the long-term benefits. So can you give them some reasons why they should buy and hold your token in the long term?


MrJ:

We have something that no other projects until now has had:

What will benefit EpicHero NFT holder's long term?

The answer is an NFT holder's passive income rewards and a NFT burning mechanism. This is where our experience in defi shine, with the support from Thoreum, we bring their battle tested tokonomics in Defi and bring it to NFT gaming. With this we are like the Safemoon of NFT. 

1. NFT reflection rewards in BNB: We are the world first reflection rewards NFT, it means the longer you hold your NFT the bigger the amount of dividend you get in BNB, it give holders the incentive to hold to collect dividend and with highly limited numbers, this feature makes the NFT look more attractive in the long run because every one desires to have it.

2. Not only is Epic Hero NFT highly limited in numbers, but also it will become rarer and rarer day by day because of our NFT merging ( burning) mechanism. User can choose 2 heroes to merge into a new 1 with better attributes or rarity, so the number of heroes will be decreased a lot over time. 

This 2 mechanism make sure that holding Epic Hero NFT brings more and more value in the long run for its holders


Hero Fokir:

Can you tell us a list of 1-3 killer features of your project that puts it ahead of competitors? What are the competitive advantages of your platform that make you feel most confident?



MrJ:

1. Worlds first NFT game and the only one until now that gives NFT holders BNB reflection as rewards.

2. Largest scale battles on BSC with thousands of users each, potentialy using, thousands of NFTs to compete at the same time to win real prize money.

3. True 3D NFTs that user are excited to own and show off, each with unique looking and stunning graphic. For the first time user can view their NFT fully in 3D mode, rotate, zoom in and view in a spectacular 360 degree view.


Shopon Vai:

Now NFT is really a hot trending topic right now in the cryptocurrency market. Then how is your project planning to develop NFT then how is your project planning to combine it with DeFi?


MrJ:

Now NFT is really a hot trending topic right now in the cryptocurrency market. Then how is your project planning to develop NFT then how is your project planning to combine it with DeFi?

 Hope you will answer..

Our main investor and advisor Thoreum has numerous strengths and experience when it comes to farming projects, their current projects have attracted more than 100 Million USD TVL.

Epic Heros plans are to continue to innovate and expand further into the defi space, we are already the first NFT giving BNB as a static reflection reward from simply holding, but through our alliance with Thoreum we expect to keep innovating and bring more exciting products to our users.

We intend to bring a product that fits users requirements from casual gamers to hardcore gamers whilst still providing an excellent service to anyone who simply wants to collect NFTs and profit from them
