Introduction of a Morpheus Game project.

Luis Merino

| Satoshi Club:

Hello SatoshiClubbers! Welcome to another AMA with us

Today we have Node Runners.

@alpha_noder welcome!!

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club:

Good evening, dear community!

We conclude our today’s AMA marathon series with a very interesting project. We are happy to announce our AMA session with Node Runners.

Welcome to Satoshi Club, @alpha_noder

Alpha Noder:

Hello everyone thanks for having me

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club:

Thanks for joining.

Luis Merino

| Satoshi Club:

It’s a pleasure!

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club:

Tell us a little about yourself before we hear about your project

Alpha Noder:

We are a team of 6 guys who are have been into crypto for a while. I have been a product manager and part-time, trader.

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club:

Sounds good

a good team of loyal companions!

Alpha Noder:

We call ourselves comrades!

Luis Merino

| Satoshi Club:

Love it :))

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club:

It’s in the spirit of your project

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club:

Therefore, we expect from you interesting facts about your project.

By the way, is your team of comrades on the side of the heroes or the villains?

Alpha Noder:

We are 100% on comrade’s side, just like the rest of the decentralization movement, we fight for decentralized tomorrow!

Luis Merino

| Satoshi Club:

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club:

Amazing!

Luis Merino

| Satoshi Club:

Decentralization is the way

Alpha Noder:

What sort of facts would you like to hear about us?

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club:

Top 3 facts about the project. What you consider to be your achievement?

Alpha Noder:

Well, the idea about the project came to us when we were playing Dungeons and Dragons Cyberpunk version. We thought that it would be cool to mix the current DeFi movement with the Cyberpunk and board games

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club:

Why are you interested in the Cyberpunk topic? it’s stylish and brutal. I like this!

Alpha Noder:

We didn’t want to do a presale and just wanted to see if we will manage to create a like-minded community. So far it’s going great and I didn’t expect we would get here

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club:

This is what I wanted to hear! Thanks!

Alpha Noder:

We have a fantastic community that is with us on this road that’s our biggest achievement so far

Luis Merino

| Satoshi Club:

Community is very important

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club:

Can we go to the community questions or would you like to add something? I readily believe соz you are making a very good product!

Alpha Noder:

Although 6 of us are from 6 different countries we are still feeling well connected with each other and manage to keep our spirits high no matter the challenges we face

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club:

You do it great!

Luis Merino

| Satoshi Club:

Everyone from different countries! Many cultures inside your project :))

Alpha Noder:

Exactly

Alpha Noder:

It helps the creativity flowing as we get different perspectives all the time.

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club:

Good! So can we proceed to questions?

Alpha Noder:

We have thought of many new mechanics during the development it will be fun to see it in action soon of course.

Preselected Questions about Morpheus game.

 

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club:

Q1 from Telegram user @dani_minkovicz

45% of the tokens are locked for stacking rewards and 45% were dropped to the community. So, you had no sale for NDR tokens? Also, who was able to receive the tokens for your drop, and are we still able to receive them?

Alpha Noder:

Yes, we started the project when there have been so many rugs in the crypto space and the market condition wasn’t too optimistic as well. We thought it would only fair launch without the presale as we had enough resources to bootstrap the project. So we decided to follow the example of MEME and do the token distribution to the community.

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club:

Sounds like the beginning of an interesting story

Alpha Noder:

We created a form and scoring system to select only the worthy comrades for the airdrop

Luis Merino

| Satoshi Club:

And if no presale, where do you get funds from??

Alpha Noder:

Mainly it’s our own savings. We do it like startups do bootstrap it with the prototype, get an audience, and only then seek investment to expand. The other way is quite flawed in my opinion, just look at the ICOs bubble.

Luis Merino

| Satoshi Club:

Interesting point!

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club:

It makes sense.

Luis Merino

| Satoshi Club:

I totally agree with you

Alpha Noder:

We also need to rely a lot on our precious community to help us with marketing, so far they’ve been doing great

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club:

Tell us please about your tokenomics btw

Alpha Noder:

So the total supply is 28,000 NDR, there will never be more

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club:

What is the reason for this?

Alpha Noder:

Currently, at our contracts for NFT staking we have around 13600 NDR, 5% went to the team, which is 1400 tokens.

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club:

Perhaps you have links for our community?

Luis Merino

| Satoshi Club:

Small one

Alpha Noder:

This was a tribute to the MEME project since they. we first to mix yield farming with NFTs. They had a great concept and our goal is to take it forward. Bridge NFTs with DeFi and Gaming

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club:

I understand. This is a really great idea.

Alpha Noder:

Here is our announcement with tokenomics description

https://noderunners.medium.com/node-runners-let-the-battle-for-nfts-begin-d836a9fee39

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club:

Thanks! Everything is clear to me. Can we jump to the next question?

Alpha Noder:

let’s go

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club:

Q2 from telegram user @gruvv

You say that we can stake heroes and receive NDR for this. But to buy the heroes I have to get NDR and buy them. I’ve got some NDR but I don’t find any hero on the website. They are not created yet or I am not looking at a proper place? Please show us

Alpha Noder:

You can obtain heroes on our website already for “Hashes” (our in-game currency) or Ether.

https://noderunners.io/get-heroes

https://esatoshi.club/wp-content/uploads/NFT-Node-Runer-1024x428.jpg

to get Hashes, you need to stake NDR/ETH LP tokens

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club:

Show us your favorite hero. which do you like to play, please

Alpha Noder:

My favorite one is Stani but I got a soft spot for Kain too

Our next Hero cards will be even more awesome. Can’t wait to release them

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club:

We look forward to it too!

Luis Merino

| Satoshi Club:

Any date for that?

Alpha Noder:

Most likely tomorrow

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club:

Wow!

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club:

I still dream of winning NFT in a today quiz

Luis Merino

| Satoshi Club:

Alpha Noder:

I dream about NFTs every night

Luis Merino

| Satoshi Club:

Haha

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club:

One daydream come true

If you want we can go to the next question

Alpha Noder:

Let’s continue

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club:

Q3 from Telegram user @hadrianus14

There is a cool feature to fight the villain with the card we have bought. I like it. It’s a cool feature and is related to modern hobbies of the people — gaming. Also, we can defeat the villain and take his card, stake it, and receive even more NDR. That is pretty awesome. But what happens if the villain defeats me? He will get my cards instead, lol?

Alpha Noder:

When you fight a villain you need to stake NDR, which will act like “life points”. You lose the fight if Villain takes all your staked NDR.

That’s why we have released support cards, which can boost your defense so there can be different strategies for how the villain can be fought. More NDR + high strength points or less NDR with moderate defense lost NDR will be then allocated to Villain staking pool. But all your cards are safe Does that make sense?

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club:

Sounds good. it really makes sense

Luis Merino

| Satoshi Club:

No questions at all for this one

Thank you for the clarification.

Alpha Noder:

Although the mechanics are pretty simple, there are different ways to play it. Different cards will just bring more strategies to the game.

We will gradually release stronger villains, which also increases the difficulty of the game. So in the beginning Villains won’t be that strong, it will be possible to defeat them even with Common heroes.

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club:

Your project really impressed our community. So the next question will also be very interesting.

Alpha Noder:

Can’t wait to hear it

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club:

Q4 from Telegram user @surdumiha

The idea is so cool and entertaining. Reminds me of []. Who is making these cards and what is the inspiration for it? Are they based on a story or something?

Alpha Noder:

Cards are made by an illustration artist who has been working on a couple of games in the past, he is a big fan of Cyberpunk and we well understood each other. Overall Cyberpunk theme looks really interesting, it projects our future in a realistic way. So there is this mixture of high tech, glamour, and power that looks appealing to many.

Luis Merino

| Satoshi Club:

Great story behind him!

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club:

I love cyberpunk too!

Alpha Noder:

Our Heroes represent the leaders that would fight against corporate autocracy in the future

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club:

Do you know what I like the most?

Alpha Noder:

what’s that?

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club:

You think over every detail! This is amazing. This is a quality mark. Thank you for that.

Alpha Noder:

Thank you for your kind words

We try our best to craft a story because without it any game loses its attractiveness.

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club:

Can we proceed to the next question?

Alpha Noder:

let’s carry on

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club:

Q5 from Telegram user @mikolajcek

Why can’t I buy villain’s cards if I want to? Do you consider to add a DAO component to your projects so that the community decides how it develops?

Luis Merino

| Satoshi Club:

Great question

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club:

Yes. Good one

Alpha Noder:

Just like in any game, there is a nemesis that hero must defeat. In our case, these are crypto and corporate Villains.

So if you want to have the best experience playing it, it’s best to take the full road

Alpha Noder:

But since our villains will also be ERC1155, it’s possible to buy on on Opensea marketplace on an auction since not everyone can just buy it, it will make them more valuable. They also have their own separate pool with rewards.

We hope these mechanics will motivate users to play from the start

Luis Merino

| Satoshi Club:

Makes sense

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club:

So the value grows. are copies planned? or don’t you want to diminish the value?

Alpha Noder:

As our userbase will grow we will keep introducing new Villains with different rarity levels it will be organized in a structured way, so that it doesn’t diminish the value.

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club:

I just want to understand. I have several NFT. And the unique ones have real value. And the copies are cheap. You have a different value system. Because these are game NFT. Does their value increase from an upgrade?

Alpha Noder:

if someone else tries to copy our cards, those will be just NFTs without value. They can’t be staked or used in-game to get more value. We have different rarity levels, for example, common cards have 250 units of each legendary have 15.

Luis Merino

| Satoshi Club:

How many rarity levels?

Luis Merino

| Satoshi Club:

And which ones?

Alpha Noder:

4 rarity levels

Common — 250

Rare — 125

Epic –60

Legendary — 15

Luis Merino

| Satoshi Club:

Great! Thank you

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club:

Now everything is clear to me. thanks for the answer

Luis Merino

| Satoshi Club:

Last question for part 1?

Alpha Noder:

let’s go

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club:

Q6 from Telegram user @lionelos

Only 500 people were eligible to participate in your airdrop. How were the winners selected and don’t you think that it’s risky to put all your tokens in the hands of just 500 people?

Good question

Alpha Noder:

That’s a good question and we had long discussions about it with our team

Luis Merino

| Satoshi Club:

Great, one to finish with part 1

Alpha Noder:

We created a scoring system that took into account user’s activity in telegram other telegram groups, our telegram group, their Twitter activity as well.

The goal was to create a community from the start that will help to spread the word about the project. Unfortunately, not all assumptions held to be true. Out of 500 members only around 120 have not sold their airdrops. Other 380 have been helping us to keep our token price and stealth levels

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club:

It’s actually not such a bad statistic

Luis Merino

| Satoshi Club:

More than 20% not bad

Alpha Noder:

I mean just only 120 are left, these are now core members of our community that are helping us to move forward

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club:

Verified comrades

Alpha Noder:

Battle-tested HaHa

Luis Merino

| Satoshi Club:

For 2 minutes (120 secs)

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club:

@alpha_noder Get ready to see a storm of questions !!!

https://noderunners.io/static/images/pages/landing-page/cards.png

PART 2.Questions about the Node Runers project from the live chat of the telegram community.

 

In this part, we open a chat for the crypto community for 120 seconds. Then the guests from the MTG crypto project choose the top 15 questions. The 10 crypto enthusiasts have earned cryptocurrency in the sum of 10 NDR.

Q — 1 from a telegram user @konditer_rolex

When BUYBACK?
Have you already bought NDRs from the market? I know that you want to use part of the sales proceeds for this. And I see the sold card for 0.7 ETH

Alpha Noder:

Good question as it mentions a very important feature of our project — the LGE. So as we mentioned before, cards can be bought with ETH, and 90% of ETH received is used to buy NDR back from the market and lock liquidity forever. It is an automated process, which is already happening from yesterday

this way we keep liquidity high, as well as with each additional sale, the price of cards go up too

this LGE feature is similar to CORE, which is a very well-known project

Q — 2 from a telegram user @Loversss10

Where can i buy your token? and give 3 reasons for the benefits I get when holding these tokens for the long term?

Alpha Noder:

So this question was very common — where can you buy Heroes and Support cards. Here is the link for you to do it: https://noderunners.io/get-heroes

Simply connect your wallet and buy your favorite card with ETH, if you haven’t farmed any hashes;)

and adding to this question, 3 reasons for the benefits you get by holding our token:

– you can get monetary benefit if it goes up in value
– you can pair it with ETH and provide liquidity on Uniswap, which you can then stake and farm NFTs
– you can use NDR as health points in your battles against Villains

Q — 3 from a telegram user @adityaaryah

Is $NDR a fork of $MEME, what makes you better than every other collectible NFTS out there?

Alpha Noder:

$MEME was our inspiration, but we wrote our own unique code that made it possible to add new features like automatic buyback and liquidity locks.
We are different from other NFT projects because our NFTs are part of the ecosystem. They are used to earn $NDR and in the game to get even more rewards.

Q — 4 from a telegram user @K2ice

In order to get Hashes, what do I need to do?

Alpha Noder:

If you want to generate hashes, you need to provide liquidity first. Go to Uniswap and click on +add liquidity in the top right corner:
https://info.uniswap.org/pair/0x65d0a154d2425ce2fd5fed3bdae94d9a9afe55ce

You will have to provide NDR/ETH pair to receive your LP Token. Then you can stake that LP on our website

Min stake is 1 LP Token and the max stake is 22.5 LP Tokens.

1 LP token gives you 5 hashes per day, while 22.5 LP tokens give you 100 hashes per day. So essentially, max stake gives you 1 common card per day

Q — 5 from a telegram user @mariaclaramota

What are the killer features of $NDR project that makes it ahead of its competitors? What makes it special in DeFi world? How do you compete with the upcoming project?

Alpha Noder:

Most NFT projects in DeFi space have focused only on NFT farming, nothing else could be done with cards once they are obtained other than sold.
We are adding a whole new depth to NFTs, they can be used to earn more NDR tokens and used in the game.
We are also going to make our platform flexible so that other projects’ NFTs could be staked as a bonus. This will also open a new window of partnerships. This way we hope to bridge NFTs together and increase their adoption.

Q — 6 from a telegram user @SomeJasonGuy

Who is your favorite villain?

Alpha Noder:

HaHa, it got to be Carlos Matos from Bitconeeeeeeeeect!!!

Q — 7 from a telegram user @PaoloMonte87

Being a huge nerd myself and having spent so much of my teenage life playing board and online/offlline card games, I find the idea behind Noderunners magnificent. The steampunk art is striking, the background story is catchy and if you manage “to play your cards right” (sorry for the pun) I’m pretty sure you could have spectacular success as one of the sector’s first movers in the crypto space. I am aware that Node Runners is just at the beginning stages, but are you considering implementing multiplayer battles anytime soon? If so when, will we be also able to witness grand official Node Runner tournaments among the top players from all over the world?

Alpha Noder:

One of the games that have been leading in blockchain games is Gods Unchained. They have done great work with tournaments and multiplayer battles. We are going to follow their approach once we release our game in Q1 2021.
They will be definitely a prize pool, and since we have NDR tokens in our ecosystem we can create more interesting incentive mechanisms.
We definitely will seek to attract top players and will be open to partnerships.

Q — 8 from a telegram user @Joseunda

The NFTs staking APY is over 2067%, is so high,
Why is this APY so high?

Alpha Noder:

APY is always high at the start, but once more users participate it gradually drops. Currently, it is around 300%.
Token emission is 40 NDR per day, through 6 months of time.

Q — 9 from a telegram user @KASG95

How many are the maximum amounts of villains and different heroes there are in Node runners? And this amount could be increased by recommendations and voting by the community?

Alpha Noder:

Right now we have issued only 4 Heroes and 4 Support cards, but we have a looooot more in the pipeline! And yes, you are absolutely right, we will be asking our community to vote for the next best card

So join our telegram group and discuss together with us.

Q — 10 from a telegram user @Kathdm

Currently, we can stake up to 4 cards at the same time, why only four? Was it a random number or is it chosen strategically? Is there a reason behind that? Have you considered increasing that number soon? Maybe it could be through community vote through a governance process.

Alpha Noder:

To be honest, number 4 was chosen randomly, but having only a small limited amount of cards staked was a strategic decision. If you have noticed — you can also stake only different cards, you cannot stake 4 same cards. We believe this will motivate people to change cards more often as the game progresses and players need stronger Heroes to defeat stronger Villains

Q — 11 from a telegram user @Pannicota

Hey sir, @alpha_noder, I have an interesting question:
– How will $NodeRunner prevent early dumping from farming, staking from your NFT? Because many people nowadays only like short-terms profit then run away, fewer people care about long terms!

Alpha Noder:

We have a strong focus on liquidity, so that through time we will have minimal price impact from yield sales.
For example:
– Cards bought with eth are used to provide liquidity and burn it
– There will be a demand for cards and this will serve an incentive to provide liqudity and farm them.
– There is 2% fee for unstaking LP tokens that get burnt
– We are testing automated liquidity mechanism from transaction fees like SAV3 project did.

Additionally we will bring more incentive to NFT staking.
It will be possible to boost your cards with NDR, LP tokens or even partner NFTs. This will help us to attract more users from other projects.
We will keep NDR at the core of our ecosystem. As long as our community will grow, NDR will follow.
Currently, we are still at a very early stage.

Q — 12 from a telegram user @OlegDubinskiy

Your website says that the price of each card is dynamic, how to determine the value of the card? What will happen to the cards if the value of the NDR token drops sharply?

Alpha Noder:

Card prices correlate with NDR/ETH and card rarity. So with each card purchase for ETH, NDR is bought back from the market and used to provide liquidity. That helps to stabilize the price.

Q — 13 from a telegram user @principal101

For project development first of all main priority is having enough funds. Does your team financially capable to run this project? Do you have enough funds for its development Can you tell us how your project generates the profit?

Alpha Noder:

Very good and fair question. Right now we are using our own funds, as well as receive 10% from each card sale. However, our key goal now is to build a large and strong community, create great traction for the project, and then apply for Binance Accelerator Fund so that we can continue building our game on Binance Smart Chain

Q — 14 from a telegram user @ledudez

Do you have plans of introducing an ultra-rare card, something shiny akin to the physical trading card games you can buy / trade? It could be something that could be dropped randomly to long-time stakers etc? Or something you could get randomly when farming etc

Alpha Noder:

Great question! So apart from Hero, Support, and Villain cards, we also have Badges of Honor. These badges are unique and very special cards, which are given to our community members for completing certain missions. For example, yesterday we sent out a Badge of Honor to every single person who is still holding our airdrop as well as to those who are providing liquidity on Uniswap. More badges will be introduced soon

These badges will have special powers in the game, but we cannot disclose any more details at the moment

Q — 15 from a telegram user @Ckolacalm

What do you consider as your biggest obstacle for long-term success and how are you trying to overcome it?

Alpha Noder:

Our biggest obstacles would be attracting new users and solving high gas prices.
We plan to integrate ETH scaling layer like Loopring and Matic to reduce transactions cost and make our game more accessible to a wider audience.
Also, we focus on gameplay and integration with other projects. Having a good product first it will make it easier to market it and grow our userbase.

Part 3 — Quiz about Node Runners project

 

In the final part, we would like to check your knowledge in terms of Node Runners project. They’ve prepared 4 questions for this part, so everyone could be a part and answer. Participants had 7 minutes to answer.

The prize was 6 common cards $1200 (market value) and 2 rare cards $1600 (market value) was distributed between the winners.
