In this section, Q indicates a question and A indicates an answer (speaker in parenthesis).
This is a summary, not verbatim.
- Q: Have there been any developments with the onboarding of influencers? (AntJxck)
- A: Our main onboarding offering will be Paper Cats, which is also going to be delayed because of the Christmas break. It will be a highly-affordable, almost infinite supply. And it will help people to learn about NFTs in a fun way. (Adam)
- Q: Is there a specific type of onboarding process for high-profile influencers? (AntJxck)
- A: Paper Cats will be available to anyone. But something that is really important is that high-profile influencers are going to be equally as confused as we all were when we started. So getting them to a point where they understand the NFT space is important. (Adam, xtremetom)
- Q: Can we expect a stealth launch? Or is there a plan to market the upcoming game? (Friendly Degen)
- A: A new team member has been added to our Discord. That person is spearheading all of our YouTube and TikTok content. So we've got a person who is going to be doing that whole side of things. We will market on YouTube and TikTok. Whether or not we will engage or collaborate with other YouTubers is still open. We are currently focused on closed beta. (Lynqoid)
- Q: Would you ever consider doing a Cool Cats theme park? (kumo)
- A: That would be amazing! (Lynqoid)
- Q: Can we have plushies in the Cool Cats' store? (Merry Muffinz)
- A: We want to do that. (xtremetom) I'd love to do a Build-A-Bear style where you can add your attributes to it. (clon)
- Q: Will there be legendary Cool Pets?
- A: The best answer for that is that we're not telling. (xtremetom)
- Q: What are your thoughts on what we're doing here from a high level? What is our slogan? (Squigg)
- A: We're trying to build out an entire ecosystem, from merch to a series to brand partnerships to games. We look at Pokemon a lot because we like what their brand has become over time. We want to emulate that offering of being everywhere and accessible to everyone. (ELU)
- Q: Where do you get merchandise? (Type T)
- Q: Will the Cool Cats NFT giveaway happen this year? (dubiousdoe)
- A: Yes, that will happen at the end of this month. (xtremetom)
- Q: How do we differentiate ourselves from other NFT projects? (pepperhand)
- A: We are a very tech and utility heavy project. We are also very accessible. Once we release our tech and utility heavy bits of the project, that will create long-term utility for Cool Cats. It's easier to go down the short-term utility road. But I think that is our big advantage. (Lynqoid) The ecosystem we built allows you to write your own contract and bolt it into the Cool Cats game. So, if you decided that there should be a particular set of unique quests, that could happen. New games that use $GOLD or $MILK can happen. The community can write mods for our game. We're thinking beyond coming out with a token and a game that will last a month. (xtremetom)
- Q: Will we be allowed to buy Art Basel merch by the end of the year? (ahs)
- A: Probably not. (clon)
