The YOINK team was represented by @porkonomics @lilyoinker @Yoinkopolus @yoinkedev. They judiciously shared with us detailed knowledge and information about the project.
1st Segment: INTRODUCTION
Q1 : Can you please introduce yourself and your background, also introduce the Team working on YoinK
Ans : Ezra, better known as YoinkeDev, Full stack engineer!
Again, thanks for having us, we are excited to be here.
The Yoink token was born from a multitude of ideas;
Bitcoin, Casinos and The Simpsons. This mish mash culminated in the birth of the Yoink function.
We are a group of friends and crypto enthusiasts whom have been in the space for a number
of years and decided to put some of our ideas into action! Team Consists of 5 members.
Q2 : Can you introduce the YOINK project, what critical problems does it solve that existing solutions are not solving and what’s the competitve advantage
Ans : Sure, yoink is a deflationary token with a sneaky twist. We allocated 30% of the supply (30M tokens) to the piggy bank, every day one of our top 500 holders gets the opportunity to win 1% of its contents. Initially the draw was done from all holders with balances over 1k. Now that we have integrated chainlink VRF, we randomly pick a number 1 - 899 on chain, if a number up to 500 is drawn the YNK goes to the associated wallet. if > 500 the YNK is burned forever. Our intention was to create a fun project with some interesting dynamics that we as crypto entusiasts would love to play!
Q3 : Can you briefly describe the Top milestones you have achieved and your target milestones with timelines, also share your roadmap
Ans : We are probably the only token at the moment to call the Chainlink VRF function every 24 hours
We are very proud of the achievements so far and to highlight just a few:
🐽 Listed on all major crypto tracking sites ✅
🐽 Launched the Yoinking function ✅
🐽 Deployed several iterations of the dashboard ✅
🐽 Launched Yoinklab ✅
🐽 Chainlink VRF integration
2nd Segment: TWITTER QUESTIONS
Q1 : Piggy Bank will hold 30% of the the total YOINK supply. 1% in every 24 hours will be given to a random Yoink wallet, if the selected wallet is not in the top 500 YNK will be burned!
That means everyday is given or burned 0.3% of total supply which is very high amount.
Why have you choosen this system with it supply will be given or burned at very short time?
Why it’s not available for every wallet that has YNK, but not only for top 500?
Ans : The reason for going with the Top 500 is of course to firstly incentivise users to buy YNK, but also to ensure the system cannot be "gamed". Using VRF we select a number between 1 and 899 to determine the winner. if the number is >500 the YNK is burned. If every YNK wallet was included the protocol would be suseptile to manipulation from users spamming a small amount of YNK to many wallets. We are not silly pigs!
Q2 : How does YOINK stimulate market liquidity? Does YOINK have an internal market maker to ensure continuous liquidity? What if people are interested in providing liquidity to Yoink?
Ans :We are currently listed on uniswap where we have excellent liquidity which is locked for 12 months, please check out https://app.uniswap.org/#/swap?inputCurrency=0x87c00817abe35ed4c093e59043fae488238d2f74&outputCurrency=ETH
Due to the awesome design of uniswap AMM anyone can provide liquidity to Yoink, however we are cooking up something special in that regard - stay tuned!!

Q3 : In your journey, this period November/December is for marketing push. Beyond AMA are there other incentives and offers given to the crypto community this period to grow the Yoink community?
Ans : Excellent question...We are moving onto the next phase of the yoink ecosystem and today are announcing an airdrop for the Top 500 YNK wallets, the snapshot will be taken between 18th November 12:00 UTC to 22nd November 12:00 UTC. The top 250 YNK holders will receive a 2x multiplier on the drop! We also have yoinklab where we incentivise users to help with grassroots marketing by completing a series of tasks. Check it out at https://dash.yoink.rocks/yoinklab
Q4 : In order not to lose out on the 1% of the piggy bank that will be yoinked to a random Yoink wallet in the top 500, what are the requirements needed to be in the top 500 wallets?
Ans : You can check your eligibility on https://dash.yoink.rocks , currently 39.9K YNK is require to break into the top 500.
Q5 : How do you expect YOINK’s recent partnership with Chainlink to help with the development of your project? Why did you choose to work with this company rather than another of the oracles available in the market?
Ans : We chose chainlink due to their reputation within the cryptosphere as the most robust oracle solution on the market, no other oracle provider has the ability to provide a verifiable random number on chain, it was a pleasure working on the implementation with them! We hope that this integration proves to the wider crypto community that we are here for the long haul, transparency is key for the team
3rd Segment: LIVE QUESTIONS
Q1 : what is the function of VRF (Verifiable Random Function) for $YNK project and investor ?
Ans : VRF is the process of choosing a random number on chain, this can only be provided by link oracles. this ensures the daily draw is done in a fair and verifiable manner
We use Chainlink VRF to determine the daily winner of our Piggy Bank draw. Before Chainlink VRF, there was no possible way to generate a random number on-chain in a highly secure manner not gameable by miners.
Q2 : What features differentiate Yoink’s financial features from other financial features? and what are the benefits of stake holders when we hold $YNK tokens?
Ans : There are multiple benefits for Holding YNK tokens, Currently you get to participate in Yoinking, which based current price is paying out roughly $1500-2000 USD every 24 hours. Secondly we will launch the YNK staking.
Q3 : It is very important for piggies to save but what happens when a piggy bank is empty?
Ans : Great question, we are implementing future strategies to "top up" the piggy bank, they’re made for saving too, not just spending!
Q4 :Trust is of utmost significance , how will YOINK get users to trust in this project ?
How will you assure us YOINK project is not a SCAM project ?
Ans : Agree trust is super important. I hope that by continuing to deliver and iterate the protocol we can prove that we are serious about the project and believe in the long term vision. We are saddened by the amount of rug pulls and scams going on at the moment and we want to breathe some fresh air into the community!
Q5 : Why did you decide to choose ethereum which is the network that is currently the most congested in terms of gas? What benefits can this Blockchain network provide to your project?
Ans : Yes it is a congested network, however it is also the most widely used & trusted network as well.
Ethereum is the most widely adopted smart contract protocol, we believe all defi is happening on eth and dont see that changing. Yes gas fees can be a problem at times but these will be overcome
Q6 : You have mentioned that Liquidity will be locked for 12 months and this is good for the investors who hope to join with YOINK. How can we ensure that the liquidity tokens will be locked for 12 months? And aslo what are you expecting from locking the liquidity for 12 months?

Q10 : How do you plan to attract developers? Adoption is one of the important factors that all projects need to focus on to become more attractive to investors. So, what is #YOINK’s plan to adopt more Adoption?
Ans : We aren’t looking for developers, but we want more users! we hope the gamification of the protocol will be a major attraction. and we are adding more elements to further develop this
