AMA Recap Crypto Library with Ragnamaple


On 31st October 2021, Ragnamaple conducted an AMA in the Crypto Library Community. Our guest is Kim Woo Ming. Lots of questions as usual from the Community about Ragnamaple progress. The Ragnamaple team took part in a very interesting AMA session which included introductions, questions from twitter, and a live AMA session with the Crypto Library community. If you missed the AMA in person, read this recap for a deeper insight into Ragnamaple.

Let’s take a look at the most interesting points of our conversation. 

Crypto Library Team : So, before we start the AMA could you please introduce yourself to our community?

Kim (Ragnamaple) : Hello to everyone, I am Kim Woo-Ming from Seoul, Korea. Currently working for our brand new play to earn game - Ragnamaple in our game studio in Sydney, Australia.
Crypto Library Team :  What is Ragnamaple? and how your team begin the process of creating this project?

Kim (Ragnamaple) : Ragnamaple is a game inspired by Ragnarok Online and Maple Story, we used to play this game as a teenager and end up we have decided to recreate a game with similar features of these 2 games, with play to earn as the main attraction to pull in more players.

Crypto Library Team : How to play Ragnamaple? And what benefits will users/players get?

Kim (Ragnamaple) : Ragnamaple is an open world turn-based RPG (Role playing game). First you need to use RMP to purchase 5 characters, then embark on the adventure to fight monsters and ultimately reach the Great Mother Tree, which is the key to saving the Ragnamaple world. In between the journey, you may capture some monsters to be your companion. Train them and make them fight for you in battles. Different character and monster comes with different skill, so it is best to have a variety of strategies to fight against different enemy or boss encounters. We created this game with player retention and mass adoption as priority, thus we are focusing at not only smooth gameplay, but also come with massive reward. For example, we have weekly boss raid event which will spawn random boss that comes with different reward, some of the boss is worth up to $10000 BUSD. And why BUSD but not RMP you may ask? Because we do not intend to give out massive reward in native token which will hurt the pricing of our token. We need to make sure that the token price is stable so that users and investors are happy to stay with us.

Crypto Library Team : Please tell us about $RMP and $zRMP token! What are the token use case, distribution, and how to buy/get it?

Kim (Ragnamaple) : First of all, RMP is use to reward token and LP stakers with revenue sharing, 100% of all in-game & RagnaDex revenue will be sent to RagnaVault for weekly revenue sharing distribution. Every week the revenue collected from RagnaVault will be used to purchase RMP token from the secondary market, this elevates the buying pressure in the liquidity pools, which consequently prevents token dumping and increases RMP token demand. 15% of RMP supply will be distributed as yield farming reward, these reward can be claimed in the form of RMP token with 2 months lockup period, or zRMP, the in-game currency which can be redeemed immediately for in-game usage. Whenever zRMP is claimed, equivalent amount of RMP token will be burned, which translates to a gradual deflation of RMP supply. zRMP grants user additional 10-20% discount on all purchases, thus we foresee more RMP will be burned to be converted to zRMP. While other utility of RMP token are for DAO governance/voting, first time game character purchase, item and equipment upgrade, monster evolve, staking for certain in-game purchases eligibility and NFT land metaverse transaction currency. There is 1 more in-game currency that is not blockchain-based = Zeny. Zeny is the in-game currency that can be earned through completing combats and campaigns. Players can use Zeny to purchase in-game items, or convert Zeny to RMP through RagnaDex to be sold on an exchange and converted to usable money; however it is not allow to be used as payment method in Ragnadex marketplace, as RagnaDex only support blockchain based token.

Crypto Library Team : Could you give us some information about your roadmap, your milestones, and also your future plans?

Kim (Ragnamaple) : The priority of our current roadmap would be to start the whitelist campaign soon and then community presale which will set on around 10th November 2021. Currently we have managed to come out with a gameplay trailer while more demo will be ready in December 2021. For the future plan, we are currently in talk with several gamefi project to implement metaverse integrations, very soon our character NFT will be able to port over to some major metaverse project available in the crypto world. With our upcoming NFT land sales happening by end of November or early December, these project will also be able to bring their avatars to interact with us in Ragnamaple metaverse.
Crypto Library Team : Collaboration and partnership are some of the most important cornerstones to help improve adoption. So tell us about the existing partners of Ragnamaple, your plans for the partnerships, and how everyone will benefit from these partnerships?

Kim (Ragnamaple) : Yes I agree with you, we are currently in talk with few launchpad and metaverse projects for collaboration, we have also secured 2 CEX listing even before we have launched, but due to NDA, we are not able to disclose it now. However, these partnership definitely will benefit mostly our community, as it means more features and usage of our native token in the process, do stay tuned for our upcoming announcement in November.

Crypto Library Team : Most NFTs games currently suffer low player base due to expensive initial cost for a new player to take part in the game. How does Ragnamaple is attracting large group of players? can you talk some of its features which make it different from other?

Kim (Ragnamaple) : First of all, our initial cost is very player-friendly, so it will be accessible to most people, it is only when player buying more premium NFT such as better equipments and accessories then only it will cost more to them. But we believe they can earn it though our p2e mechanism and slowly build up a strong team. From day 1 the main attraction of Ragnamaple is always about the massive reward we will be given out to attract players. And we have a sustainable way to make sure it works, through the Ragnavault and burning mechanism which more details you can refer to our whitepaper in the website.

Crypto Library Team : So many project use "burning system" to removes tokens from the available supply and increasing its relative scarcity. Does Ragnamaple team implement $RMP token burning? and how the mechanism of $RMP burning?

Kim (Ragnamaple) : Yes, we do have "voluntarily-burning" system, whereby player may burn his existing RMP and convert it into zRMP and entitle to maximum 20% discount on items in the marketplace. The burned RMP will forever exit the circulating supply without new minting available.

Crypto Library Team : What's the most interesting playing RAGNAMAPLE? what do we get if we play RAGNAMAPLE? and one more important way to register is the way to register is difficult or very easy for someone who is new to the game

Kim (Ragnamaple) : I would say most interesting part about Ragnamaple will be the diverse open world available where players can freely roam the continents and do many things in the game. When you are tired of fighting monsters, you can always go to the NFT land to farm more materials or even mine some precious ores to upgrade your equipments. The game is easy to register and play, just follow the guidelines on our website

Crypto Library Team : Ragnamaple is a game that works with the concept "Play to earn", but can you is ragnamaple a game that can be played all day if I want too? Or do you have any limit of plays per day?

Kim (Ragnamaple) : You can play ragnamaple the whole day, but there is always a cap in daily earning, when the cap has reached, you can always go to farm for more materials and capture monsters, or even go fishing! These times can be put up in the marketplace for sale.

Crypto Library Team : Ragnamaple is an NFT blockchain game, most of the NFT games only focus on profit with P2E, because this is one of the main attractions of blockchain games. So, is Ragnamaple more focused on the player experience on and off the game to create a balance between playing and winning?

Kim (Ragnamaple) : We definitely have to focus on both but with p2e as the priority in the early stage, once we have onboarded mass players, then there will be more game features rolling out to create further engagement.

Crypto Library Team : Southeast Asia is a very vibrant market and there are many new platforms under development. So what do you think about Southeast Asia and do you have plans to grow there?

Kim (Ragnamaple) : Yes we do! We are currently in talk with few game guild in Vietnam, Philippines, and Indonesia. They will be the pioneer to play the game and invite more players to join.

Crypto Library Team : Gaming sector is extremely competitive & many platforms had to work very hard to reach their current user numbers. How will Ragnamaple team compete with the existing gaming platforms & what extra features will Ragnamaple offer to attract the gamers from the other platforms?

Kim (Ragnamaple) : We are aware that there are many fierce competition in gamefi. That is why we are learning from few famous p2e games such as Axie Infirmity and Gods unchained and improve on their game features. But out of all feature, the fastest and most effective will be providing massive reward in the early stage to not only attract more players, but also work as a marketing strategy to increase adoption.

Crypto Library Team : Ragnamaple is a decentralised strategic play-to-earn game, and will have a Game Beta in Q1 of 2022 as your roadmap list. Can you tell us 'how can we able to play in your Game Beta? Does it need to hold $RMP to enter the game?

Kim (Ragnamaple) : Yes you will need to use RMP to purchase the initial characters and start the gameplay. With the initial characters, the player can slowly make profit from the game to change the characters to new job, or upgrade the existing equipments.

Crypto Library Team : Mobile games are popular this year and possibly in the future, because they are simple & can be played anywhere & at any time. Will your game be available on the Playstore/Appstore ? How can I play Ragnamaple in this time?

Kim (Ragnamaple) : At first the game will be available as browser based. But we will be having android version in February 2022, so you can play anywhere you want as long as you have your mobile phone with you. At first the game will be available as browser based.

Crypto Library Team : After quick view on Ragnamaple Games at the website, it is caught my attention, curious about the games and willing to play. Anyway, for new entry like me, is there any manual or module to learn about the games for beginners? And where we can find them?

Kim (Ragnamaple) : We will have more medium articles to cover the basic game guide and walkthrough when the game launch is near, for now we are still focusing on the game development which is still on par with our roadmap. We would suggest that you register to the game and bind your bsc address from whitelist first. Since you will need some RMP to play the game, you may either purchase from our community presale, or from the secondary market such as Pancakeswap or our CEX partners.

Crypto Library Team : It is known that the games that provide more rewards in the players, are those games that require a large investment to participate, therefore, Ragnamaple will require a large investment to participate? or will it be Free to Play?

Kim (Ragnamaple) : Nop, as mentioned before, you will only need a small amount of RMP to kickstart the game.

Crypto Library Team : When you create a defi nft platform, with all the hacks happening across multiple defi platforms, how will you convince stakeholders that your platform is trustworthy?

Kim (Ragnamaple) : We are currently hiring 2 audit firms to help us with the auditing but it is still at the early stage, we believe as time goes by we will be have another in-house security auditor to help in boosting the security of our platform.

Crypto Library Team : They are 5 jobs classes in Ragnamaple level: warrior, Archer, healer, magician, thief. What is the different between that jobs classes? Could you explain a little about that?

Kim (Ragnamaple) : Different job comes with different skills, some of them are good at tanking enemies, some are good at long range, while some can heal the team. You will need to combine different characters to form the best team, thus there will be many play style available.

Crypto Library Team :  On your website you explain that players will be able to capture monsters and turn them into a stronger form, but these monsters are NFTs? How can I evolve one of these monsters that I capture, by investing them or buying them some item? Also, what can I do with these monsters inside the game?

Kim (Ragnamaple) : Good question, yes these monsters are in NFT formed, when you evolve a monster, the old monster will be sent to our vault to be destroyed. You train the monster to level up and evolve them, though some rare monster will need some material to help them evolving.

Crypto Library Team : I see there are 3 categories of NFT's items in your platform:
-NFT loot box
-NFT land
-NFT characters
Can you share us the main role of these products in your ecosystem?

Kim (Ragnamaple) : Here's:
NFT lootbox = for random equipments and items draw in bundle
NFT land = land that can be used to grow your herbs and also mine for ores to upgrade your equipments. These land also serve as the metaverse integration which you can even earn tax from players mining in your land.
NFT characters = a better version of character with better stat that help to ease your game play

Crypto Library Team : Tell us more about the Ambassador Program and in what ways can we participate?

Kim (Ragnamaple) : Dm us in the group chat and we can arrange a role for you.

Crypto Library Team : Successful projects are the result of an experienced team ,the project will not develop without being managed by an experienced team,whatever it is good. So, how about your project? does your team have good experience in the cryptocurrency world?

Kim (Ragnamaple) : We have few full stack developers specialize in blockchain, EVM and so on. We believe they are doing great work to ensure you have smooth game play once we launch the beta.

Crypto Library Team : I see on Ragnamaple Project Roadmap. Ragnamaple is planning a Smart Contract Audit for October 2021, and today is October 31, 2021. Which party will be your project auditor? How is the result?

Kim (Ragnamaple) : Yes we are aware of this as we have got delayed in some of the development, thus we will update the roadmap today. Thanks for your patient.

Crypto Library Team : According to your whitepaper, one of the things that makes Ragnamaple different from other Play-To-Earn games is that it will have the best DEX listing Anti-Bot measure, could you explain how it works? Will it also be useful for in-game functions? What measures will the project apply to avoid damage to the game's economy by bots?

Kim (Ragnamaple) : We believe that the best way to avoid bot sniping when TGE is to ensure enough allocation to the community when we launch our presale, so that there is no FOMO when we are listing to avoid bot hurting our community. We will also conduct a bonding curve fair launch on Copper before the TGE to ease the effect of bot.
