Question for Part 1- Project overview:
1- Can you briefly introduce yourself as well as Starly? And from where you get the project name? What does it mean to you? And why you choose this name for your project? What is your mission and vision to build this project? What you want to achieve Through your project in future?
I’m all things Community and Content at Starly. Starly is an amazing platform, hosting Collectible NFTs. Name comes firstly from reaching for stars, but the exact name twist was a bit accidental. we aim to expand and enable mass adoption of NFTs — it might seem far away, but we believe it’s just around the corner. Will need a lot of educational work, but will happen. We call it 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. And thats our long term goal
2- What strengths do Starly have to compete with competitors?
Firstly — we offer unlimited support to creators every step on the way of creating collections, they still have a complete control over creatives. Creators also don’t have any fees till actual sales — our commission is taken only after sales. All new features we implement are designed to benefit Creators as well as Collectors. We also aim to open our platform to all kinds of creators, offer personalized collection creation, adding our own level of gamification. A lot of new features in the pipeline.
3- What are your significant achievements till now and what are your other plans for this year?
Sry, did not know I cannot post links 🙂
This is smth we are very proud of — in a bit more than 3 months we have worked with amazing Creators, launched fantastic collections and our Community is growing slowly, but steady and devotion is real. We have a lot of other features in progress, token integration firstly, and then building local communities. The link I posted was — we already have Vietnamese TG community in fact 🙂
Part 2: Pre-selected questions from our community
1-Is the tokenomics and distribution model already out? Where can I get them? Can you share the details with us here?
Wow, so you just post all this during AMA?
You can find detailed tokenomics description on our page. As you know (I hope) $STARLY token is designed as a utility token, meaning it will be integrated with our platform. Token holder benefits list include voting for the drops, strategic decisions and so on. We are looking forward to building a strong Starly DAO and involve the Community in different aspects of the platform development. As for token sales, distribution etc — please check graphs, as it’s close to impossible to explain in detail in a limited time frame on chat
That’s ok, a bit lost though 🙂
2- At the moment, where Starly are focusing right now? Building and developing product or getting customers and users, or partnerships? Could you share it?
We are developing really actively in different directions. While we reach out to new partners, have great plans with existing ones, build communities and explore new marketing strategies, we never neglect our platform development and we listen closely to our community in order to find the best ways to improve. It’s kinf of juggling a lot of hot potatoes the same time, but our team is very united and hard working .
3- Marketing strategy is very important for every project. A product be established on the market without marketing & promotion, whatever it is good. So what are your plans for this? How will you build strong relationships with communities?
Oh yes, of course it is very important. One of the very important aspects is partnership with Flow — we believe their vision in attracting new strategic partners to the blockchain, as well as reaching out to new communities — being one of the most sustainable blockchains, we believe it has a great future ahead.
Other aspect is, of course, influencer marketing, where you can highlight 2 parts — crypto influencers (the market is saturated though) and others. The second part are actually more interesting to us, as that way we could reach out to wider public, and bring people, who are not in crypto yet.
We also will offer new, tailor made collection formats to brands and ambassadors
4- Southeast Asia is a very vibrant market and many projects developed here, so with your project what do you think about Southeast Asia and do you have any plan to develop here??
Oh yes, we really believe in this market and we have Korean, Vietnamese and other communities emerging. And its not just about communities, its also about looking for creators in those countries, to make it more attractive to local markets. We find a great artistic value there
5- Many projects have similar features & services, but I can see that you are bringing out new innovation with your project. In the end, what will be your vision? What are you trying to achieve in the long term with your project? What are your plans to get there?
There are a lot of projects and even more space for more projects 🙂 It’s important to have your own uniqueness, Starly is very different from Opensea, Rarible and others. Support and no charge to creators, special relationship with community and collectors, gamification element etc. All new features we implement are designed to benefit Creators as well as Collectors.
And we do plan to reach out far and wide — just wait and see :)
Question for Part 3: Guests will choose 5 live questions from members and answer directly in CryptoFury Community
1- Partners, partners in every project play a huge role as backup and support at every start of a project/company, so my question is What role do your partners play in the ecosystem of Your Project and what benefits do they have for being a partner?
Supportive partners are invaluable and not so easy to find. We have been incredibly lucky to have all the support from Dapper Labs. Another shoutout goes to Blocto — they have been and still are so responsive and involved.
We also get a lot of ongoing support from our investors, like Animoca Brands, Spartan Group and others. Now we here add Occam and DAO Maker, of course 🙂
I believe that the key is a shared vision — we benefit each other by working on the similar targets, helping each other (of course, we are a baby, so we get more help 🙂 )
2- Team members are an Internal part of a project. So, tell us how many team members do you have and how many developers are working on this project?
Our team is together for years, almost like family — just joining is easier than in real families 🙂 We have a fantastic social media experience, and we plan to implement our experience, knowledge and vision into NFT field. We believe we have a lot to offer. We have 27 total team mebers, developers being approximately a half I guess.
3- In the world crypto competition, features are of primary importance to attracting investors and the community! Can Starly provide a list of killer features that scare competitors into your project?
We just introduced a real KILLER feature shortly — Minter’s royalty 🙂 For every card you minted (happens when you open a pack) Collectors will receive a 1% lifetime royalty from all the secondary sales on our platform — there is a “Minted by” label next to each card. The royalty is enabled for all the future mints, as well as the cards you minted before, regardless of the owner at the moment of feature launch. Competetive advantages — different perception of market, personalized approach to Creators, much love for Community 😉
4- Starly wants to create different NFT thematic groups, where they also hope to involve music and art, many projects have developed this theme, could you tell us why your project will be different from the others? Do you have contracts with recognized companies and artists
While we have started strong with very high level art collections — and we absolutely love those, we also believe that all kinds of Creators should be able to launch their collections with us. In fact, even if our perception has slightly changed since we started, we still believe that mass adoption of NFTs is just around the corner and that’s exactly what we want to do — enable anyone with a devoted community to take their relationships to the next level. As for going BIG — we have a very special collection coming up soon — stay tuned to find out more 🙂
5- Community support is one of the biggest aspects of a project’s success. Most projects have programs that interact with their users. Do you have specific plans to attract and expand the community and improve the user experience?
As a Community person will finish on this note. We plan to create a strong Starly DAO, giving collectors — token holders — an important role in decision making process, and multitudes of benerits. Already now we offer very personalized approach to them and listen to their feedback. Our community along with our creators and team is heart and soul of Starly ❤️
