Recapitulation of Starly PROJECT AMA event held at AMA LOVERS CLUB.
Date: Friday, 14th January, 2022
Time: 14:00 UTC
The Starly PROJECT team was represented by @KatyRouge who judiciously shared with us detailed knowledge and information about Starly PROJECT.
1st Segment: INTRODUCTION
✨✨QUESTION1: Can you please introduce yourself and your background, also introduce the team working on STARLY?
ANS: I'm all things Content and Community person at Starly 🙂 Have been with the founding team for a decade, working on several projects. I have an extensive background in localization and content creation and management, but - above all - I love building connections with the community - that I get to do now a lot more (can't even handle all of it 😄 ).
Our core team is together for ages 🙂 Making it almost a family, except we allow new members to join easier 😉 Our latest baby is Starly, previously we have created social media Ask.fm (150M users at the moment of sales) and F3 (30M users).
✨✨QUESTION2: Can you introduce STARLY, what critical problems does it solve that existing solutions are not solving and what's the competitive advantage?
ANS: We call Starly a launchpad for gamified NFT collections, as it offers content creators an end-to-end solution to launch and sell their own NFT collections to their fans and followers. We use our experience to implement social media mechanics into crypto space. From the very beginning we are very different from competitors - I believe that's the most important thing for any project. Our project video and other links here, for you all to explore now or later 🙂 https://linktr.ee/starlynft
✨✨QUESTION3: Any plans for expansion? What can you tell us about what’s to come in 2022 for STARLY?
ANS: Oh, yes, we are SO ambitious. During these days, as you all (I hope) know, we have IDO. Our utility token pretty much writes our roadmap for the next months - we want to fully integrate it in platform, to use it in Starly DAO founding, different reward and payment system implementation etc.
In the meantime we look into founfing local communitites, working with some huge stars to atract wider audiences and so on.
We have quite a lot of things in pipeline, you should absolutely follow us and see how it goes 😉
✨✨QUESTION4: Can you briefly describe your PARTNERSHIPS and BACKERS so far?
ANS: Good and supportive partners are invaluable and not so easy to find. We have been incredibly lucky to have all the support and guidance from Dapper Labs, who also chose us - just a baby of a project - to be a strategic partner for the FlowFest - we hosted the Mystery Pack (NFT from Flow ecosystem partners giveaway during the fest), created a dedicated marketplace and so on. Another shoutout goes to Blocto - they have been and still are so responsive and involved (shoutout to Starly for being the first Blocto IDO 🥳 )
We also get a lot of ongoing support from our investors, like Animoca Brands, Bigcoin Vietnam and others.
✨✨QUESTION5: To conclude the introduction segment, Can you give an overview of the Tokenomics and Utility of $STARLY tokens?
ANS: There is guite detailed description here: https://starly.io/token I will however point out the things I feel are the most important. We will assign 3 staking tiers - Silver, Gold and Platinum, and give those holders benefits - like exclusive drops, special priveledges and ability to participate in decision making process, voting for features, artists and so on. There will be a lot more features added as we go - in the long run our mission is to evolve $STARLY token as a centerpiece of Starly ecosystem to benefit creators, collectors and token holders (using it as reward, payment etc, as mentioned before).
2nd Segment: LIVE Questions
✨✨QUESTION1: Will community be given opportunity to voice their thoughts and opinions on new features before they are being finalized or everything lies in the hands of the project team? Also, which of your social media platforms is dedicated solely for Collectors because I observed that your telegram is more of token discussion?
ANS: Yes, as mentioned we are listening to our Community closely, and if anything - plan to give them more participation in the decision making, moving towards Starly DAO. So, yes, regarding our socials - Collectors mostly hang out on Discord (these days it’s a bit dominated by IDO, but it’s passing), Telegram is mostly Token ppl, news and such, Twitter is a place to participate in nice giveaways and follow news. Feel free to check out any of those (just be careful to follow official media, as there are lot of shady copycats out there) https://linktr.ee/starlynft
✨✨QUESTION2: I understand that the Starly team are picky at the moment in selecting NFT artists to join them. But as an NFT artist resident in Africa having a good record with some notable NFT platforms, I am also willing to join Starly to add more to the platform with my experience, how can I join and form a partnership with Starly at the moment? What are the things you look out for in artists that you would like to be part of the Starly platform?
ANS: Yes, we are super picky, as we are young 🙂 Further aim is to enable all creators with devoted communities create collections for their fans - that demands a lot of educational process though, but mass adoption of NFTs is just around the corner. In the meantime, if you are passionate artist, please reach out to us on our Discord, there is also artist submission channel, and our product people hang out there.
✨✨QUESTION3: Can you outline some of the reasons why Starly was built on the Flow blockchain and not any other known blockchains? And what are some of the advantages that building on Flow blockchain will have on Starly?
ANS: After a comprehensive research on Flow blockchain seemed like an obvious choice - it is highly scalable and delivers performance and attributes for mainstream adoption.
It's also environmentally sustainable, as associated energy consumption is considerably lower than alternatives. There is a lot of future potential and we feel very good about Flow's vision in attracting new users to the ecosystem.
✨✨QUESTION4: Hii ✨
Why you have made international communities only for Turkish, Vietnamese and Korean? Are they your main targeted audience?
ANS: Hey 🙂 We actually aim to make a lot of local communities, this is just the start due to our partnerships - but there will be much more. We believe in global reach with local approach.
✨✨QUESTION5: Starly is introducing a feature which seems to implement"Minting" lifetime royalty from sales on starly's marketplace. Is this features for all members or exclusive members ?
Are you going to be minting special NFTs for the lifetime rewards or the reward is in form of Starly Token ?
ANS: Oh, yes, that's one feature we are working on to implement very soon. And it will not be in any way exclusive to some group - for every card you minted (happens when you open a pack) you will receive a 1% life time royalty from all the secondary sales on our platform - there will be a “Minted by” label next to each card. The royalty will be enabled for all the future mints, as well as the cards you minted before, regardless of the owner at the moment of feature launch. So ALL cards previously or in future minted on Starly will have this original owner who receives royalty :))
✨✨QUESTION6: NFT is developing and becoming a new innovation in the Blockchain world. However, there are still many Artists or content creators who do not understand how to create NFT.
How did Starly solve this problem? And Do you have any plans to educate about NFT to Non-Crypto people?
ANS: Yes, while it might seem a bit early at the moment - we do believe that NFT mass adoption is coming real soon, and we do approach creators with no crypto experience, but involved communties, so we can together educate them and create a synergy.
✨✨QUESTION7: Starly is chosen as the first Blocto IDO. What are the benefits of being the first project to IDO on Blocto ? How supportive has #Blockto been to STARLY NFTs?
ANS: Blocto has been amazing and we really valuate our partnership. The main benefit to do IDO on Blocto is to have a native token - it will be bridged to BSC and Solana, and other blokchains soon, still native is better (at the moment, as future definitely is cross-chain:) )
