Apexaverse and tehMoonwalkeR AMA: The Recap
On Friday 29th April 2022, tehMoonwalkeR hosted us for a live AMA in their official Telegram group with our CMO.
Below is the full recap of the AMA session.
So what got you into crypto initially?
I love the traditional crypto industry stories
Anchorlaz, [Apr 29, 2022 at 14:06]
I’m focused on designing solutions for the next generation of blockchains.
Before Crypto, I spent so many years in the Energy industry. I had a range of experiences working as a consultant and in wealth management. I had the privilege to manage my staff to be able to get the job time in due time.
I picked an interest in cryptocurrency some years back when I started investing in early projects building on mostly the Cardano ecosystem.

Thank you for sharing your story
Azeban, [Apr 29, 2022 at 14:07]
Can you give us an elevator pitch about Apexaverse? What is it all about?
Anchorlaz, [Apr 29, 2022, at 14:07]
Azeban, [Apr 29, 2022 at 14:08]
let’s get a little background on Apexaverse, especially for the MoonwalkeRs that haven’t heard of it yet
Anchorlaz, [Apr 29, 2022, at 14:10]
Okay, Apexaverse is an upcoming Play-to-Earn role-playing game universe, built on Cardano Blockchain. Apexaverse platform consists of NFTs, GameFi, and Metaverse.
We are planning to revolutionize the decentralized gaming industry by creating an immersive and competitive world for our players.
We will create;
A wide set of games,
The ability of our players to explore, combat, cooperate, boost skills, and also monetize their gaming experience
All this will be powered by our utility token $AXV
Azeban, [Apr 29, 2022 at 14:13]
I love role-playing games, you have got different roles such as Warrior, Archer, and Magician play styles.
How does the game revolve around this? You choose your character and fight with a storyline?
Anchorlaz, [Apr 29, 2022, at 14:17]
Exactly, we are coming up with our first combat game to kick start the P2E mission.
We are making it possible to make sure our game is not expensive to play.
We have three characters (Warrior, Archery, and Magician) you can choose to be able to complete with your opponent.
Here, you will be automatically matched with another player that staked his/her AXV token for the fight.
It’s a fair play, which means the characters are balanced in one way or the other.
Azeban, [Apr 29, 2022 at 14:18]
that makes sense
Anchorlaz, [Apr 29, 2022, at 14:19]
The winner takes all!
Also, AXV holders can be able to participate in each batter by betting on their favorite players.
This will be able to engage all our users and make them fully involved.
Azeban, [Apr 29, 2022 at 14:19]
Let’s take a step back for a moment and talk about
What can you tell us about the idea for Apexaverse itself? Tell us about its Origins and what inspired you to build it?
Anchorlaz, [Apr 29, 2022, at 14:26]
Blockchain-based P2E industry has gained strong interest from investors, reining in 4.8B USD in investments last year.
Apexaverse is capitalizing on this gaming landscape by incorporating a blockchain-based experience to the Metaverse, joint P2E functionalities with the NFT collection.
There are other P2E existing games already and most of them are yet to finalize their games.
Most of the existing projects have just a single game on their platform.
In Apexaverse, we are bringing in a different kinds of games on our platform.
This will attract different kinds of gamers to our platform.
Not everyone will love to play a combat game, some will like to play car races, chess, horse ride, and so on.
Azeban, [Apr 29, 2022 at 14:27]
That makes total sense, so you are like a game studio that will continue to build more games as time goes on?
Anchorlaz, [Apr 29, 2022, at 14:28]
We have partners that are on standby to develop games for our platforms.
New games will be determined by our community (holders of $AXV)
Remember, we are starting with a combat 3D game
Azeban, [Apr 29, 2022 at 14:29]
Interesting idea, let the community choose what the next game will be
Let’s a moment to talk about the team that makes Apexaverse possible, how many members do you have in your team? and tell us about their background.
Anchorlaz, [Apr 29, 2022, at 14:34]
Currently, we are 12, highly selected, and experienced in what they do.
All our developers are very conversant with Cardano blockchain (Haskell, Plutus).
Our advisor (Abdalla) is very useful and active to us, he has a vast experience in blockchain technology and the Gaming industry as a whole.
We also have outstanding UX/UI designers (Tested and Trusted) with a vast experience in layouts.
Our 3D and animator team is also grounded and resilient in making sure we have a very captivating experience in our games.
You are free to scroll to our Team section via our website to know more about them and their experiences
Azeban, [Apr 29, 2022 at 14:35]
Why did you choose Cardano?
Anchorlaz, [Apr 29, 2022, at 14:37]
Cardano is an open-source, decentralized blockchain platform, founded in 2015 and released in 2017. It is the world’s ninth-largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization as of April 2022.
Cardano has already been held in high regard with many decentralized exchanges (DEXs) choosing the blockchain for its efficiency and stability. The number and popularity of DEXs on Cardano have been growing steadily after Smart contracts went live with the Alonzo upgrade on September 12, 2021.
The growing popularity great, but, given recent Axie’s hack when Ronin Bridge was compromised and left the ecosystem and its users without $600 million, it’s important to ask if Cardano’s security is good enough for complex multi-application projects like Apexaverse
The Ouroboros protocol is a pure proof-of-stake consensus protocol that privately and randomly selects stake pool leaders proportionally to their stakes to generate a new block.
Azeban, [Apr 29, 2022 at 14:39]
What are the problems with P2E games nowadays?
since I am speaking to an expert, here is a question I have for you. What do you think it will take for non-crypto users to join P2E games within crypto?
Anchorlaz, [Apr 29, 2022, at 14:45]
The making of a good game involves the collaboration of a few teams led by game economists.
We are taking the following steps to attract non-crypto users to join P2E;
Determining the basic values and quantifying them:
The main value of a game is something that motivates players to spend time in the game.
From our research, we came up that there are 4 player types by their most valued in-game actions:
1) Explorers, who enjoy discovering areas, going through narratives, and learning about hidden places;
2) Achievers, who prefer to gain “points”, levels, equipment, and other concrete measurements of succeeding in a game;
3) Socialisers, who enjoy the game’s communicative facilities, and apply the role-playing that these engender;
4) Killers, who thrive on competition with other players, and prefer fighting them over bots
(Source: Game developers)
Our games will offer these values to be able to engage all our players.
There are many non-crypto users out there, some might not be interested in the game itself.
Some will pick interest on just betting for their favorite players while they earn from it.
You must not be a gamer to be able to use our platform, this is because we provide Avenue where non-gamers can also be able to participate and earn from it
Azeban, [Apr 29, 2022 at 14:50]
Anchorlaz, [Apr 29, 2022, at 14:51]
Our team attended a 3 days summit with Gamesbeat/Venturebeat and we introduced Apexaverse to the community I can tell you we were able to convince so many people about P2E.
We want a way where you earn while playing, not paying while playing
Azeban, [Apr 29, 2022 at 14:52]
Let’s talk about your token $AXV and its utilities,
Anchorlaz, [Apr 29, 2022, at 14:56]
We pledged to make all our users and players have an outstanding and friendly environment.
We crafted $AXV to be the utility token for our platform, ensuring it has a robust tokenomics structure and serves as the multi-purpose tool for many operations in the platform
AXV use cases:
$AXV token holders are part of the Apexaverse community, which comes with several advantages. The token’s utility will evolve with the ecosystem; it will become ever more useful and valuable. Each new product (Launchpad, Staking Platforms, …etc.) will bring new benefits for our holders.
$AXV is mainly an in-game currency and can be utilized in many ways:
Internal game currency
$AXV will be used as the medium of exchange within the metaverse. It will be used to buy, sell, trade, and modify in-game assets. In addition, $AXV will be used as points of entry for various areas of the metaverse, for accessing areas and quests, for any in-game item, and to level up. It is a digital currency for the virtual world.
As Apexaverse’s early adopters, players will receive unique and limited edition NFT merchandise. Its value is projected to grow over time due to a limited amount and as the game becomes increasingly popular
Individuals will be able to stake $AXV to provide liquidity and earn rewards for it.
In line with our vision of a world of decentralized governance, finance, and investing, Apexaverse allows $AXV holders to vote on whether to accept a project onto the launchpad or not.
Each Apexaverse community member will be able to contribute to the game’s growth direction by voting for or against upcoming gameplay developments, who will be listed on our launchpad, and choosing which mini-games that will be developed first, which decides the past and future of our massive online P2E 3D world. Those who hold more tokens can have a greater impact on voting.
$AXV holders are not only investors, they are part of an impact-driven community.
We have carefully explained a lot about AXV on our blog.
Let’s take a look at some of the functional and economic mechanisms that will drive the $AXV token to be relevant to the market.
The Apexaverse Token ($AXV) is fully registered under the Cardano ecosystem. This means that the token follows the common technical standard, making it trustworthy and secure. You will be able to trade $AXV on different exchanges when listed on CEX and DEX.
$AXV will be used as the medium of exchange within the metaverse. It will be used to buy, sell, bet, stake, trade, and modify in-game assets. In addition, $AXV will be used as points of entry for various areas of the metaverse, for accessing areas and quests, for any in-game item, and to level up. It is a digital currency for the virtual world.
