AMA Recap — Cryto Daku X RaceFi
On November 30th, John Lee had AMA with Crypto Daku on their official Telegram group. During the AMA, John Lee shared with the community more about RaceFi, about its plans and visions.
This is a recap of the entire session, in case you missed it!
Q1: Before we start AMA, we will love to know about your role and day-to-day work experience in the project.
John Lee: Thanks for introducing me! Hi everybody. I’m John Lee — CEO of the RaceFi project.
Previously, I graduated from a university majoring in telecommunications technology in Australia. After that, I continued my Master’s studies and became a Ph.D. student in France and Japan. With 8 years of experience researching and working in the Blockchain and NFT Game fields, RaceFi and I have built an upcoming metaverse that promises to bring a lot of interesting things and potential economic benefits to the community
Q2: What bought you in crypto? And what were your best and worst bags?
John Lee: Nice question! I think I had the opportunity to know crypto 8 years ago as an investor. After a bit of research, maybe my worst experiences came from those beginnings when I didn’t have too much experience and lost some money, you know.
And the best experience was when I had the opportunity to collaborate and work with start-up projects on blockchain, crypto and this gave me a lot of meaning to develop.
Q3: Can you tell us all more about the project, the idea, how it started? And especially why it’s needed or how is it disrupting?
John Lee: As you know, Metaverse is becoming increasingly popular due to the advance in blockchain gaming. Players prefer to control and interact with their in-game assets and leverage them to monetize their gaming experience.
With the help of blockchain technology and cryptocurrency, play-to-earn models are now accessible to players worldwide.
That is why we are thrilled to launch RaceFi on Solana.
RaceFi will be a complete race-to-earn ecosystem where you can participate in races or own parts of the game and make a profit. All ownable parts of the game are in the form of verifiably owned NF’s.
And about our project, RaceFi is the first AI/ML integrated car racing game on the Solana ecosystem. Within RaceFi’s metaverse, players can earn while enjoying various game modes to satisfy the thirst for speed or make a profit by owning in-game property. RaceFi is a game that integrates many different modes that create unlimited money-making opportunities for all players.
Q4: Can you tell me about tokenomics and token utility?
John Lee: Sure! There are 2 types of tokens:
- $RCOIN: In-game tokens are used to purchase consumables like gasoline, Renting properties, Upgrade of cars, … Players can own $RCOIN through Winning a race in PureRace or Battle Race, Betting, Participating in races, Selling analysis predictions, etc.
- And about $RACEFI token: The RACEFI token is designed and intended to be a utility governance token, the currency inside the Racers game. As seen above in the allocation table, will be sold to investors.
The $RACEFI token has a total supply of 200 million units and its use in the game is designed to promote the use of the token and how that results in increased use of the game and its assets. The more the game is played, the higher the value of the game assets (cars, land…) becomes. This results in a larger benefit to the players. In addition, $RACEFI can be used to trade NFT in the marketplace. (NFT Transaction (Buy, Sell), Staking reward, Governance and Participation, Events participation, Airdrop programs, etc)
Q5: Can you tell us about the market pie you are trying to conquer, your competitors, and your SWOT analysis for your offerings?
John Lee: That sounds great! RaceFi has great potential as this project holds a first-mover advantage: the first car racing game on Solana platform. Expect the unexpected with this team, they have the capacity to revolutionize the NFT racing industry with unique AI/ML applications and many other exciting features. Every new RaceFi user increases successful funding for the game developers. Therefore, it is vitally important to attract and maintain a large user base.
Our growth model strategy is built to systematically and sustainably drive users to the platform. RaceFi also provides various user-oriented profit methods for its user base. Users can earn by owning assets, advertising, and hosting races, trading cars, betting, participating in the races, etc.
Also, it is important to maintain the existing user base, that is why the platform is planned to be expanded by adding new gameplay opportunities and NFT assets.
In addition, we will build VR/AR features (we offer a 3D showroom to exhibit your own assets in RaceFi Platform) for players to interact directly with the vehicle. Also, we cooperate with other games on the market to be able to bring their NFT into our game and vice versa.
As you know, currently on the market there are many NFT games. However, we are confident with our USPs and our team with many years of experience.
Q6: Can you tell the community about the upcoming sale and TGE? and market cap on opening days?
John Lee: Sure! Here is our information you can see:
- Initial market cap is $631,250
- Seed: 5% TGE, cliff 3 months, then release 12 months
- Private: 5% TGE, 5% next month, cliff 3 months, then release 9 months
- Public: 25% TGE, then release 3 months
Besides, we have already closed raising funds from VCs and RaceFi is now moving toward the next step in its roadmap. The important events are upcoming $RACEFI IDOs on SolRazr and EnjinStarter. The SolRazr IDO is scheduled to take place in early December with the EnjinStarter IDO planned for later in the month. Both intend to raise $500,000.
Q7: Looking forward to TGE. what are the next 100 days plan? Tech wise, business development wise, user acquisition wise
John Lee: Nice! We have many plans for all of them and about Technology:
- About Blockchain, we continue to develop on Solana, Metaplex (NFT),
- About our game, we prepare the Threejs, Reactjs, Solana/web3js,
- Backend: Nodejs, .Netcore
- And in terms of AI/ML: TensorFlow.
And as I mentioned before, RaceFi’s IDO will be available on SolRazr and Enjinstarter. Following these IDOs, RaceFi’s NFT release, AI/ML integration, and $RACEFI staking services mark the next phases of development in the run-up to game launch by Q2 2022.
In the near future, we have a lot of plans for our project including listing on exchanges that will be revealed soon. We also plan to hold NFTs airdrop events for users and launch more new Game Features which meet the entertainment needs and bring economic benefits to everyone. In addition, we also cooperate with other games on the market to be able to bring their NFT into our game and vice versa.
Q8: Last question before opening: Why one should look into RaceFi?
John Lee: In a bid to harness recent advancements in GameFi while avoiding the high network fees that have priced out users on Ethereum, RaceFi is developing the first AI/ML car racing game on Solana, utilizing its rapid and low-cost transactions to deliver a play-to-earn (P2E) experience where players and participants own part of the game.
Within the RaceFi metaverse, NFTs, DeFi, and P2E combine over various game modes, providing players with control over their verifiably owned in-game asset NFTs, leveraging them to monetize their gaming experience and earn rewards.
Playing the game consists of buying a car, buying gas, selecting a race type, choosing your race strategy, and then viewing the results. Cars with higher experience points and upgrades have an advantage, but those with optimal race strategies will perform the best.
We hope with a long view of the project that will benefit the community a first game project on the Solana ecosystem not only in terms of entertainment but also economic benefits for everyone. We will try to be a top spot on the Solana ecosystem in general and the metaverse universe in particular.

John Lee: These are the individuals that hold a certain amount of $RACEFI in their wallet and actively participate in ecosystem governance. $RACEFI would allow holders to create and vote on governance proposals to determine future features and/or parameters of RaceFi, with voting weight calculated in proportion to the tokens held (the right to vote is restricted solely to voting on features of RaceFi; it does not entitle $RACEFI holders to vote on the operation and management of the Company, its affiliates, or their assets or the disposition of such assets to token holders, or select the board of directors of these entities, or determine the development direction of these entities, does not constitute any equity interest in any of these entities or any collective investment scheme; the arrangement is not intended to be any form of a joint venture or partnership).
