Blocwars ushers in a new era of entertainment through the metaverse where you can swap likes you work hard to achieve into value.

Bilo | Crypto Society

@mickey_amami It’s our pleasure to have you with us today. I would like to welcome you here on behalf of our entire community.

Mickey Amami | Blocwars

Thank you and it is my pleasure to be here! Thank you for setting this up 🙂

Bilo | Crypto Society

Could we begin with a brief history of yourself and your team, and your roles at Blocwars and what you were doing before Blocwars?

Mickey Amami | Blocwars

Of course!

My name is Mickey and I am the CMO of BLOCWARS. I have been in the blockchain industry for 4+ years and did a lot of special ops for projects and platforms, so I have seen the up and downs of the markets several times now…lol

Our core members are all Japanese. We have known each other for a long time, and all of us specialized in different things.

Bilo | Crypto Society

That’s great. Sounds like a close knit team. Congratulations on that.

Could you please explain to us what Blocwars is all about and describe the upcoming gameplay?

Mickey Amami | Blocwars

yes it is! we have strong bond!

BLOCWARS is a metaverse project that combines the elements of Fashion, Entertainment, E-Commerce and Social Network.

Our ambition is enabling everyone to turn likes into values.

We will have fashion PVP games, entertainment and other fun stuff to enrich our metaverse environment for our users.

Bilo | Crypto Society

Sounds really cool; How did Blocwars start? And when are you launching?

Mickey Amami | Blocwars

BLOCWARS was made by a decentralized autonomous corporation (DAC) established in April 2021 that mainly works on creating and operating fashion NFT IPs.

The team started BLOCWARS project in Q2 of 2021. We are devoted to building an immersive environment for brands and metaverse residents to interact in a more friendly way, enabling everyone to monetize likes.

the platform is already launched.

You can visit us at blocwars.io

According to our current plans, in the latter half of 2022, more metaverse features, including the avatar dressing system, Onimaru game centre and mount system, will be live gradually, while the land presale starts in Q3.

Bilo | Crypto Society

Which chain have you selected and why?

Mickey Amami | Blocwars

We’ve chosen the BNB chain as it is secure and stable, and the community ecology is more robust.

One of the most significant advantages of BNB chain is its reasonable gas fee. In addition, Binance is the world’s largest exchange with a large and still growing user base.

The advantage of being on BNB chain is the ecosystem of projects and communities that can keep projects ahead in the NFT space.

Of course, we have plans to allow cross-chaining to Avalanche, Polygon, Solana, and other chains in the future.

Bilo | Crypto Society

Totally agree. The cross chain feature in your RM is very exciting.

Can you describe your token utility? When will be the token launch for Blocwars?

Mickey Amami | Blocwars

Tokens are essential in a way that serve as in metaverse currency, and will be utilized in the fields of our metaverse related clothing, food, housing, transportation and entertainment.

To be more specific, tokens are used to purchase, create, socialize, trade, entertain and governance.

To enhance your Blocwars metaverse journey experience, tokens are necessary to customize your avatars, decorate your swag zone and build up your land through purchasing outfit nfts, decorative item nfts, constructive material nfts respectively.

Players in our metaverse consume tokens to get fun through paid rave events, exclusive parties and fashion shows.

Tokens can always be used to tip friends or subscribe to different clubs and membership cards.

Last but not least….

we also use token for DAO voting! Tokens holders entitle community governance therefore tokens will have huge impact on a few critical events or future plans of this project.

We plan to launch IDO depending on the crypto and metaverse market✨

Bilo | Crypto Society

Thanks for the specifics and I personally am glad your token launch will be market dependent 😅

Mickey Amami | Blocwars

We think timing is very important!

Bilo | Crypto Society

Will people need to buy an NFT to participate in the Blocverse?

Mickey Amami | Blocwars

The BLOCWARS is designed for everybody to have fun😉

If you don’t have any Onimaru NFTs, you can still join in to dress up your avatar and enjoy the immersive virtual environment, achieve the daily missions and tasks, and even swag-to-earn.

You’ll need to hold Onimaru NFTs if you want to experience more of our core features😎

for example, to take part in the PVP games, become VIPs of some collaborated brands, or attend some special online events✨

Bilo | Crypto Society

I believe you have already had some NFT sales. How have they gone so far? Tell us about successes, and lessons learnt so far.

Mickey Amami | Blocwars

So far, we’ve already launched 4 collections of Onimaru NFTs, and a collection of apartment access NFTs.

Genesis Collections, 9,999 in total, including the Onimaru Bad Kid Collection, Binance Bad Kid collection, and the Onimaru MetaHuman Collection, these 3 are sold out.

Onimaru × TGC: the Run Way Collection, co-branding with Tokyo Girls Collection (TGC, one of the biggest fashion festivals in Japan), 2,500 in total and sold at Binance NFT Marketplace- sold out.

BLOCWARS Apartment: Aperture Access Collection, 300 in total-sold out.

We’re excited to tell you that they’re all sold out, but we know that there’s a long way for us to go to develop an ideal metaverse platform.

Luckily, we have a great community which will always give us new ideas and inspirations.

Bilo | Crypto Society

Tell us about you upcoming land sales and why investors should take interest in your land vs what’s already out there?

Mickey Amami | Blocwars

Sure🙂

We have 2 layers of land, the upper layer will be our commercial area where all the shops are located.

It will be more organized by us, which also differentiates us with other projects. We believe that it is more friendly this way for the beginners and new metaverse users, so they don’t have to build everything from scratch on their own.

And we also have the residential area on the ground layer where our players can demonstrate their creativity, this is where we launch land sale, depending on the land size and location, the price would be different.

Players can build their own houses, decide on the furniture and decorations etc. It’s going to be limited quantities since we’d like to increase its value.

We will release the land pre-sale to our core users starting from Q3, and periodically release the land public sale in Q4.

Metaverse lands become valuable assets just like physical lands, and people can make money by selling them, leasing them or building on them.

Bilo | Crypto Society

Wow. Nicely thought out. Thanks

Mickey Amami | Blocwars

We want to make sure everyone can have fun ❤️

Bilo | Crypto Society

What do I get in return for staking my NFT’s? And did I understand correctly that you have NFT farming? How does this work?

Mickey Amami | Blocwars

In our NFT staking/farming Program, Onimaru NFTs are allowed for staking to earn more NFTs, and once the token is issued, the token as well.

The background story for this is Onimaru as a metahuman living in the blockchain, Onimaru is talented at arithmetic capability.

He can solve computing problems for other worlds to earn more NFTs as rewards.

Before 16th May 2022, players got mystery boxes (genesis collections) from the staking program. After the update on the 16th, the rewards pool was expanded to Onimaru mystery boxes, decorations, furniture, land fragments, clothing, outfits, and accessories✨

Bilo | Crypto Society

That’s a lot of utility. I honestly haven’t seen this much utility for an NFT so far. Very cool!

Mickey Amami | Blocwars

right??? I know! We are making it happen!!

Bilo | Crypto Society

You have this unique feature called “ Swag to Earn” Kindly explain what this is and how this works?

Mickey Amami | Blocwars

Swag-to-Earn is a concept created by BLOCWARS, allowing players to earn from fashion events, socializing and entertainment in the virtual community. Players can earn from Social Index, Fashion Index and Entertainment Index.

Social Index: Everyone can become a social influencer, and earn from his/her influence. The more followers, likes and shares you get, and the more likes and shares your NFTs get, the higher your Social Index becomes.

Fashion Index: It depends on the NFT assets you hold. For example, the tokens, Onimaru NFTs, or NFTs from other projects.

Entertainment Index: Players can earn from daily missions, part-time jobs, mini-games and much more.

Therefore, everyone has a chance to be on top of the ranking through different approaches such as being active, being an influencer or being an NFT holder😎

Mickey Amami | Blocwars

thank you thank you🙂

Bilo | Crypto Society

Ooooo. Forgot to ask; What is the “apartment access” program?

Mickey Amami | Blocwars

Besides the lands on which the players can have their houses, we also provide players with another choice of personal zone. With apartment access NFTs, players can enter their apartments, put furniture in them and decorate them with NFTs they have.

We’ve launched a collection of 300 BLOCWARS Apartment: the Aperture Accesses, which are all sold out, as I’ve mentioned. And if you’re a holder of the 2500 Onimaru × TGC: the Runway Collection, you’ll be able to swap it into a BLOCWARS Apartment: the Backstage Access.

Bilo | Crypto Society

Aaahhhh okkkk. Nice.. very nice, thanks

What launchpads are you aiming to launch your token with?

Mickey Amami | Blocwars

We’ll collaborate with the world’s leading DEX and CEX launchpads. Please stay tuned😃

Bilo | Crypto Society

What are you currently working on and can you describe your future roadmap?

Mickey Amami | Blocwars

As we just completed the Farms system update, we will continue to add more new content. At the same time, we are firmly working on our new personal space apartment, where you can have your own avatar, change your own clothes, decorate your room with different furniture and items, visit other apartments of your friends and neighbours, interact with new friends, and much more.

What’s more, the apartment for now is only a small part of the future metaverse. In addition to the development of the marketplace, we never stopped building the macro structure and the various details of the metaverse, hoping to achieve the desired results with the best quality.

Bilo | Crypto Society

When do you sleep??? 😱

Mickey Amami | Blocwars

We don’t! blockchain never sleeps! Lol

Bilo | Crypto Society

What notable partnerships and backers do you have?

Mickey Amami | Blocwars

And as fashion is one of our core concepts, we formed a partnership with the biggest fashion festival, Tokyo Girls Collection (TGC), in launching Onimaru × TGC: the Runway Collection. We’ve also held a joint artworks exhibition with 30 Japanese artists in Shibuya in April 2022.
