Crypto Society Ama Recap with FTMO -17th October 2021.

With Lord Wilmore

Fantom Oasis aims to be the go-to project launchpad for the Opera network.

How it works: project creators allocate tokens to the Fantom Oasis platform, receiving quick and painless distribution to the wider Fantom community.

Fantom investors and super-users stake the Fantom Oasis (FTMO) token for allocations in these vetted projects.

Lord Wilmore|FTMO

Hello

Bilo | Crypto Society

@MonteCristo218 — hello bud

Bilo | Crypto Society

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

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

Lord Wilmore|FTMO

There are 3 of us on the team. @DrThadCastle @SamFisher321 and myself. @DrThadCastle was a programmer working in traditional tech (ai, self-driving cars, computer vision etc…). I was a trader, @SamFisher321 was a businessman and Blockchain enthusiast.

@DrThadCastle and I have known each other for quite some time, we met @SamFisher321 through our shared love of Fantom.

Bilo | Crypto Society

Ahhh you’re a trader… A man after my own heart 😍

Lord Wilmore|FTMO

I have been holding Fantom for years now and have been actively involved in the community during that time.

Bilo | Crypto Society

We ❤️ Fantom too ☺️

So you must beee… how do I put this… ummm… Very Very Very well off then?

Lord Wilmore|FTMO

As to why I invested. I saw the promise that it had to offer in bridging the gap between traditional finance and pure decentralization. Ethereum itself is too decentralized and lacked control that banks wanted. Fantom offered a middle ground and I still believe it can.

Bilo | Crypto Society

Simple and pure. Love that!

Lord Wilmore|FTMO

But for the time being they are focused on building our their more decentralized pure crypto offering, the OPERA network. And therefore, so are we. I haven’t done too badly. But there is much work to still be done ;)

Bilo | Crypto Society

How and where did you first encounter crypto?

Lord Wilmore|FTMO

Well…believe it or not it was a long time ago. As many of us I’m sure… have our own story.

I was too young and unlearned to appreciate it at the time.

But I digress. Anyways as for the project itself. Perhaps I should get to that.

Bilo | Crypto Society

Yes, can you tell us about why you thought Fantom Oasis needed to be built and what problem it solves?

Lord Wilmore|FTMO

@SamFisher321 was the master mind really. He saw the lack of a bridge between Fantom developers and a coherent community to launch from. That is to say…many developers want to launch on Fantom, but the same well-developed avenues for capital raising, to get users involved etc… that all exists on Ethereum but doesn’t quite exist on fantom yet. Or if they do, not with the same level of magnitude or sophistication.

Bilo | Crypto Society

So true. so how did Fantom Oasis start then?

Lord Wilmore|FTMO

On the flip side, many fantom users want to purchase and actively use (liquidity mine, stake, contribute in other ways etc…) Fantom projects but lack appropriate avenues to get a good stream of legitimate projects.

So, we knew @SamFisher321 already through the community and he knew Kevin was a developer…so he pitched us the idea and we after some deliberation we ran with it.

Bilo | Crypto Society

loving this organic start — Nice!!!

How would you describe Fantom Oasis if you were talking to someone unfamiliar with digital assets?

Lord Wilmore|FTMO

I guess one point of comparison could be the “traditional” start-up world…where you have start-up incubators that fund and help develop new projects and companies. We are kind of like that.

The question then becomes of course…why have a token for such an entity?

Bilo | Crypto Society

Excellent; Why did you choose to build on the Fantom Opera network?

Lord Wilmore|FTMO

1. We have long been committed to the Fantom ecosystem (as most of our crypto portfolio allocation, staking, involved with the community and team, node runners etc…)

2. We saw it as an easy way to help. Other chains have similar projects, but Fantom was lacking one.

We also find Fantoms consensus technology to be quite innovative, more so than other chains.

Bilo | Crypto Society

With an explosion in Launchpads (albeit on different blockchains), over the past year or so, can you tell us what differentiates Fantom Oasis from others?

Lord Wilmore|FTMO

1. First, there’s no real competition yet on Fantom itself. There are other launchpads, but they aren’t really launching any projects…

2. FTMO comes from the grassroots community. It’s run by developers and community members, we have 10 node runners invested, many other telegram personalities are in, it’s organic and not a top-down corporate project.

The latter point gives us greater flexibility to act and greater understanding of the market than any competition could feasibly have.

Bilo | Crypto Society

Excellent. Thanks

Lord Wilmore|FTMO

Whereas tomb for example has one developer and 10 corporate managers who aren’t really in touch with the community…. we have 10 developers and a couple managers who have hodled, staked and bled in the trenches with the community over the years.

We understand the ecosystem on an intuitive level.

Bilo | Crypto Society

What is the Fantom Oasis ($FTMO) token used for? Can you describe the Tokenomics?

Lord Wilmore|FTMO

So, the token itself is used as a gateway to obtain large and cheap allocations to the projects we launch. If you don’t purchase our token but still use our platform, you’re essentially getting the project at market rate rather than a deeply discounted rate. And your allocation is reduced.

Bilo | Crypto Society

Ok I see. So, are there tiers?

Lord Wilmore|FTMO

No. That’s another way we are different. We decided to do a spectrum based on relative rank of your holdings.

Users must stake the token to get this allocation. Anyways, not staking results in severe devaluation of your holdings. We wanted to punish speculators and reward stakers.

Bilo | Crypto Society

Awesome.

Lord Wilmore|FTMO

No matter how much you hold there is a maximum “best” deal you can get per project launch. And vice versa with no matter how little you hold.

The quality of your allocation depends on your relative staking rank.

Overview

More details are in our docs: https://fantom-oasis.gitbook.io/ftmodocs/

Bilo | Crypto Society

So just to understand this better. If I stake 100 tokens or if I stake 1000 tokens, there is a maximum allocation, but the allocation amount is proportional to how many $FTMO tokens I’m staking correct?

Lord Wilmore|FTMO

Mostly correct. We didn’t make it proportional however to avoid a whale dominating the allocation.

Bilo | Crypto Society

Hence the maximum allocation.

Lord Wilmore|FTMO

Yes. We based it on a linearized percentile rank of holdings.

.Bilo | Crypto Society

Does Fantom Oasis have a governance process? If so, can you briefly describe how it all works?

Lord Wilmore|FTMO

So, if you are 70% of the staking pool you don’t totally dominate the little guy, but you still have more.

Bilo | Crypto Society

speaking of bad language in the chat… I have a side question 😂🤣😂… Ready?

Lord Wilmore|FTMO

For me or LB?

Bilo | Crypto Society

For you Lord: It’s been said that your telegram channel can get a little rowdy and sometimes crude and unless I’m mistaken, you seem to enjoy that. We all like to have some fun but do you have another reason for this?

Lord Wilmore|FTMO

Well, that’s a good question actually and I’m glad you asked.

Firstly, we do have a serious chat as well.

But secondly, we believe in controlled outlets for the community to express their thoughts and emotions whatever they may be. Making everything totally stuffy and rigid prevents honest flow of information and ultimately makes the project weaker.

We enjoy descending into the muck on occasion. If we were trying to scam you for example, we would try to eliminate these avenues so we could give off a false aura to those who are less experienced.

As ghostarter did…

Or Bree or most rugpulls still do.

This is the “serious” group for project discussions only, no shit-posting. If you’re a crypto OG you might like:

Bilo | Crypto Society

It may not be for everyone, but I know plenty enjoy it and have more fun this way.

Lord Wilmore|FTMO

It also speaks to how we are totally in touch with the community, as many Fantom holders discovered fantom through this culture.

Lord Wilmore|FTMO

Yes, which is why we divided the chat.

Bilo | Crypto Society

I have heard many definitions for DEFI. Do you consider Fantom Oasis to be DEFI and why?

Lord Wilmore|FTMO

I consider it yes. I consider all crypto defi except for art nfts. Lol

Crypto is at its core is defi, and vice versa. They are one and the same in my mind.

IMHO

Bilo | Crypto Society

What projects have you partnered up with so far as Launchpad? Are there any that have already launched? Are there any in the works?

Lord Wilmore|FTMO

Yes, we performed one launch already, Treeb, but we have many more in the pipeline. After the conference (which all team members will be attending) stakers will see the fruition of everything we’ve been working on.

That’s the timeline we’ve been looking at.

Bilo | Crypto Society

We love Treeb in here.

What criteria do you seek for projects contemplating launching through your launchpad? And what kind of due diligence do you undertake?

Lord Wilmore|FTMO

We look for projects that meet a few criteria.

1. First and foremost, is the code legit? To verify this, we have our developers audit them. Roughly 5 experienced soldity devs picking apart every aspect and every line.

2. Do we think launchpad stakers can profit given the initial price they are launching at and tokenomics?

3. Do we think the project as a whole can succeed and is well adapted to the ecosystem?

Bilo | Crypto Society

Excellent and Congratulations on this as I find there are some launchpads that do not exercise enough due diligence, and this ends up hurting investors and repels them from this space.

Lord Wilmore|FTMO

When we look for a strategic partnership, we think it actually should mean something as opposed to just being a pretty name we put to temporarily pump the price.

That was why the first thing we did was get so many node runners involved.

They’ve been in the trenches over the years.

Bilo | Crypto Society

I like where this is going.

Lord Wilmore|FTMO

But we do have some BIG names we are partnered with.

Bilo | Crypto Society

Anyone I know?

Lord Wilmore|FTMO

Yes. A few everyone knows.

But we haven’t advertised because the timing isn’t right.

We are waiting for full implementation of their contributions to reveal.

Bilo | Crypto Society

Tell me — I promise we keep it a secret.

Lord Wilmore|FTMO

I swore on my dead iguana (chester)’s grave.

Nothing personal Bilo.

Bilo | Crypto Society

Damn — you had to swear on an iguana??? That’s the only one I can’t fight you on 🙁

Lord Wilmore|FTMO

Yes, I know.

Bilo | Crypto Society

Hmmmmmm

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

Lord Wilmore|FTMO

We are currently working on onboarding new projects and auditing and helping develop them.

Bilo | Crypto Society

you’re a very secretive fella aint ya?

Lord Wilmore|FTMO

That’s our total focus right now. We want to launch a lot of finished projects we are sure about.

Come out with a bang! Under promise and over deliver.

Bilo | Crypto Society

🤨

that’s my strategy with my wife!

Lord Wilmore|FTMO

How has it worked for you?

Bilo | Crypto Society

Meh

Do you wish to let us know anything else that was not covered in the questions above?

Lord Wilmore|FTMO

No, that covered everything I wanted to touch on.

Great spread of questions there.

Bilo | Crypto Society

Thank you for your time in answering our questions here today. We are all very appreciative of your time and of the answers you have provided

With this, we will open the chat for those who wish to personally thank you for your time with us here today.

Lord Wilmore|FTMO

Yes, as we answered above, what makes us premium is that we aren’t a bunch of corporate big wigs that are looking for a quick cash grab. Were developers and community members that have a superior intuition for what works and what doesn’t

𝗛𝘂𝘇𝗮𝗶𝗳𝗮 𝗦𝗵𝗲𝗶𝗸𝗵

I like your project and want to invest in your project.

🔥GOOD NEWS🔥@GoodNews9

Sir, your changes are commendable, how can you survive the bear market and keep building and growing as many projects have died this time around?

Lord Wilmore|FTMO

Because we have enough funding. We already survived the last bear market how much worse can it get?

🔘Mun Mun🔘@Munmun00

I Think NFT is a popular topic for NOW. What is your opinion regarding NFT?

Lord Wilmore|FTMO

Art nfts are lame. But profitable.

Bilo | Crypto Society

I was hoping someone asks which part of Westoros are you a lord of?

Lord Wilmore|FTMO

Not Westeros just 19th century England.

In dumas’s fictional world

Bilo | Crypto Society

It’s not real??

Kevin|FTMO

I’m actually a lord, legally.

Lord Wilmore|FTMO

It’s real in my heart

😴😴এমা শেষ 🙄🙄 মনে 😶😶 হয়😏😏@im_kag

In every project, people value projects with long-term benefits more than projects with short-term benefits! So how does ensure their long-term interests? Tell me your plan??

Lord Wilmore|FTMO

Based on the projects we launch. We don’t look for short term pnds. Our staking tokenomics reflect this.

🔥GOOD NEWS🔥@GoodNews9

NFT is a hot topic right now, but NFT isn’t just for art. Does your project think there will be many NFT use cases?🏖️🏖️🏖️🏖️🏖️

Lord Wilmore|FTMO

Yes, there are legitimate use cases in finance but we are not in a position to focus on that primarily yet.

😴😴এমা শেষ 🙄🙄 মনে 😶😶 হয়😏😏@im_kag

For this project Can you give me 2–3 advantages of this project, to convince me and other investors to invest long and long term in this project?

Lord Wilmore|FTMO

1. Run by community members who understand Fantom.

2. Run by developers and not corporate big wigs.

3. No meaningful competition.

🔥GOOD NEWS🔥@GoodNews9

Partnership is always an important factor for every project. So, who is your partner? What are the benefits you get from those relationships?

Lord Wilmore|FTMO

We have big partners in the pipeline but cannot reveal yet.
