Ms. Sandy: Okie dokie !
Host: Q1: Please introduce yourself to us. Give us a brief explanation on what Warena is all about. You may tell how did you come up with this project.
Mr. Vu: Hi! My name is Vu Hoang and I am the Project Tech Lead Coordinator at WARENA.
I’ve already helped develop some games that are in a similar vein, such as Cat Gunner and Robot Defence.
So far, the best games that I myself have enjoyed playing have been Blade and Soul, Diablo and Heroes of the Storm.
What I love most about being a part of the WARENA team is that it is a long-term project, with a huge network of collaborators and has an outstanding vision.
Mr. Minh: Hello everyone,
My name is Minh Doan - and I’m currently running MassBIt and genesis builders - before that I was a cofounder of Harmony ONE. I also spent 5 years at Google (Mountain View, CA) as a tech lead.
Warena was the first incubatee of genesis builders (GB), an investment fund and incubator founded by Minh Doan(cofounder of MassBit Protocol, ex-cofounder of Harmony one, ex-Googler) , Chao Ma(ex-CTO of deeper network, ex-blockchain architect of harmony ONE, ex-amazoner), And RONGJIAN LAN (CTO of Harmony ONE, ex-googler)
Warena is the first personalized, and #playtoearn #NFT #metaverse game. Warena gives you everything you want from an NFT game. It’s a play-to-earn metaverse that allows you to personalize your in-game characters and interact with characters from other universes like Cat Gunner and Axie Infinity in Warena combat games. Warena features thrilling action-survival gameplay where human and zombie teams face off against each other in a zombie apocalypse scenario. Players can choose to inhabit different lands, trade warriors & NFTs, battle against each other, and play in tournaments.
The Warena NFT game will be released in two phases. Phase 1 will take place in Q3 of 2021 and will see the launch of the 2D tower defense game. It’s a survival, player-vs-environment game that will require players to defend against the oncoming army of zombies. Phase 2 is set to launch in Q2 2022 and will unlock the full force of the Warena metaverse with player-versus-player features.
Ms. Sandy: Hey! My name is Sandy Tran, and I am the Marketing Manager at WARENA.
Although young, I have a wealth of experience in marketing, tech and the gaming industry. I’ve already worked for 3 years on High-Tech/ Blockchain projects, and I have a Bachelor of Science in Marketing & Finance and Master of Science in Marketing Analytics.
My top 3 favorite games to play are Clash of Clans, Ages of Empires and Audition. My career goal is to leverage creativity and art and instigate meaningful lessons & conversations with our community.
Host: Wowww, you have an really impressive background. And I think many of Redkite community are looking forward to Warena project.
Q2: How can you give assurance to the investors and game players that this project will be successful?
Can you share your strategic plans? You may share your roadmap as well.
Mr. Vu: Warena is THE FIRST personalized NFT play-to-earn and Metaverse game. Basically it combines 2 hot trends NFT play-to-earn and Metaverse into warena. It is also the first project introducing the personalized character feature in blockchain games.
Warena is backed by Genesisbuilders fund, Master Ventures, DAO Maker, M6 and Animoca to name a few. They are all well known in the crypto market. DAO Maker and Paid Network both are highly selective when partnering with projects launching their IDO. Genesisbuilders.fund (Harmony ONE team members) has had a lot of experience in building blockchain. M6 has the reputation of promoting good projects. Animoca is the leading investor of gamefi. As of BSC integration, all WARE and RENA Tokens will be deployed in BSC; the NFT can be deployed in BSC and other blockchains as well.
Recently, we have proudly received investment and partnership with Animoca Brands, the company driving digital property rights via NFTs and a leader in digital entertainment, blockchain, and gamification. Animoca will act as principal investor and partner for Warena. Much of their portfolio of original games and products utilizes popular intellectual properties including Formula 1®, Marvel, WWE, Power Rangers, MotoGP™, and Doraemon. The opportunities for Warena are many, as the team can now leverage the 200 million-plus monthly viewership that Animoca brings to the table, including numerous KOLs in the Hong Kong and Korean markets.
As for Marketing activities in this phase is mainly to provide information about the project, attract the attention of players and investors about the upcoming IDO, clearly demonstrate the development potential and attractiveness of the project.
Some marketing activities that the team has been doing:
Daily AMAs that occur until the IDO. We interact with the community and help answer any questions/concerns about the project.
Building the WARENA community, especially on Twitter and Telegram, you can join here:
Successful airdrop for 5,000 players
Completed beta testing phase 1 with more than 3,000 players
After the IDO, the Warena team will focus on building and promoting the Warena How-to-play series and other game-related content on all of our social channels, especially Twitter, Telegram, Facebook & Youtube to increase interaction with our community.
At the same time, a guide on how play the game will be released, a ‘tokens-how-to’ will go live, we will have other creative campaigns and have interactive activities so that the community can make an important contribution to the game building process.
Host: We are so delighted to hear that. This reassures our community to keep that fire with WARENA.
We will be looking forward for your future engagements and activities.
Ms. Sandy: Thank you! We’re also excited about that
Host: THE LAST QUESTION:
Q3: Can you tell us your partnership with RedKite? How will RedKite help your project?
Ms. Sandy: Great question! There are a lot of benefits though, yet to name the most important things I would say:
A unique frictionless and secure token sale process.
A network of tier-1 marketing partners, top influencers, and communities to help the project soars
Host: So pleased and excited to wait for the next IDO and the definite success of Warena accompanied with Redkite.
Now let’s jump in our next segment - Twitter Questions
In the 2nd segment, Warena Team answered 5 questions picked from AMA Announcement on the Twitter channel.
QUESTION 1: @bijajag
Because of the initial cost that had already jumped a lot.
Could this be the case with Warena ? Or will you fix the initial cost?
Mr. Vu: You always have to invest something in your new job. But the cost of Warena is extremely low (only ranges from $25 - $30). Just like that, you can start adding another “job” of yours, and have a new source of income.
The growth of the community is the growth of WARENA. Therefore, we create a variety of mechanisms, events and plans to ensure that the entry cost to participate in the game is suitable for all types of players.
Question 2 @tanmoy284910957
I read on your whitepaper and website that WARENA will be introduced to various markets across south east Asia and central Europe Market. Will in the future WARENA be introduced to the African markets as well? if yes, how soon will that happen?
Ms. Sandy: Experience the game from phase 1 (2D) and phase 2 (3D), you will realize that races from Southeast Asia and Central Europe will appear one by one. Follow the main story line and create a thrilling multi-world story. From there, create a world like reality, where you can’t predict the future.
The roadmap to expand to markets around the world will correspond to the development of the game itself
As for the African market, we are doing careful market research and will be announcing the community development in the foreseeable future. Please stay tuned!
QUESTION 3 @mandookkk
what is the role of the community for Warena and what is the importance of giving profits to your community and having the participation of partners?
Mr. Vu: We are building Warena to allow our players to also own a piece of the game - this is what a decentralized organization (the Community Council) is. Warena aims to be a true user-owned game with its own decentralized organization called the Community Council which will be managed by the community. We have also integrated a DAO (Decentralized autonomous organization), which over time can take over much of the decision-making power in the game. The Community Council will be an important element of the game ecosystem, as it will address both in-game issues as well as proposals regarding future game development and funding. WARENA being a digital democracy within a mini-universe could not be possible without blockchain, as now we can implement rules that govern what the source code is running.
Ms. Sandy: Warena’s network is quite extensive and just through our partnerships, we gain a fair amount of trust that we are the real deal, doing the right thing…
Our partners have worked with us to deliver innovative, effective and successful projects and all of our advisors have experience working in crypto and blockchain over many years. They themselves have backed many previous projects.
DAO MAKER is one of the top IDO launchpads currently - they have the most traffic out of all the top IDO launchpads. By doing a partnership with them we will be able to access many new investors. DAO Maker is highly selective with who they work with, so it gives the WARENA project a good reputation to have them as a partner. Also, we have proudly received investment and partnership with Animoca Brands, the company driving digital property rights via NFTs and a leader in digital entertainment, blockchain, and gamification. Animoca will act as principal investor and partner for Warena. The opportunities for Warena are many, as the team can now leverage the 200 million-plus monthly viewership that Animoca brings to the table, including numerous KOLs in the Hong Kong and Korean markets.
QUESTION 4 @Meziprayoga1
According to your website, WARENA Games have 2 types of token i.e : $RENA and $WARE. So, What is your reason for creating 2 types of token? What is the difference between each token? What benefits can we get from each token And what roles do these token play in WARENA Games?
We use 2 token mechanism to operate our system. The RENA total supply is 100m. WARE will be decided by the number of users who join the game.
WARE token - the main in-game currency. It will be used for trading, exchanging, and improving one’s warriors including their special qualities.
RENA token - an ERC-20 governance token for the WARENA Universe. RENA holders will be able to claim rewards if they stake their tokens, play the game, and participate in key governance votes.
Besides that, investors like yield guild can buy NFT characters for their scholars to play-to-earn - investors can earn the appreciation of their investment -
Another feature is that If you own RENA tokens or legend NFT you can stake into the vault to earn revenue with WARENA project.
THE LAST ONE @ama_cau
**Hackers are very active in the market and almost everyday we hear about another hack attack. Can you please give some information about the security system of "Warena’? How safe are the funds of investors? Do you already have an audit ? **
Security is our top concern for WARENA. WARENA is built on an outstanding blockchain platform designed specifically for NFT and gaming development such as DAOMaker, Polygon to name a few, … so the risk, from our standpoint, remains minimal. The team also welcomes White Hats who can assist us in uncovering vulnerabilities. The reward mechanism will depend on the severity of the bugs. We have been audited by Zokyo Security. The Warena smart contract passed with flying colors with a perfect score of 100%. This is above the industry standard of 95%.

3/ Revenue is an important aspect for all projects to survive and maintain the project/company. How have you been able to build a complete project and what is the way to generate profit/revenue of the token? What is the income model?
Our revenue comes from many different branches. Most of the revenue comes from the fee that players have to pay in order to join and participate in the Warena game including tournament fees, evolve/summon warrior fees, transaction fees on Warena marketplace, etc. In addition, Warena will also receive cash flow from the sales of different in-game assets including personalized tickets, lands and production houses. X% percent of this revenue goes to Warena. Y% will be distributed to the Warena vault, which is governed by Warena DAO (Decentralized Autonomous Organization). Players will need $RENA tokens to participate in Warena DAO Governance. $RENA holders will have the right to vote for the direction of the development of Warena, and earn a shared revenue of Y% of the total revenue.
