Segment 1 – Introduction

 

[May]

Hello, 大家好, नमस्ते, Selamat!

 

My name is May and I’ll be hosting the AMA with OnePad.

 

Today, we have with us a guest from the OnePad Team.

 

[Dileep Thakur]

Hey everyone!

 

[May]

You’re welcome to the Decentralized Club and it’s an honor to have you here.

 

[Dileep Thakur]

Thank you for having us today, excited to be with the Decentralized Club!

 

[May]

You’re welcome to the Decentralized Club and it’s an honor to have you here.

 

How’s your day going?

 

[Dileep Thakur]

Doing great thanks. How are you?

 

[May]

Great too!

 

Before we take some project introductory questions, could you quickly tell us more about yourself and your job at OnePad?

 

[Dileep Thakur]

Sure

 

Hey everyone, My name is Dileep Thakur and I am the founder and CEO of OnePad.io. I basically come from a sales background and I have worked with leading fintech and banking service providers such as Solitran and Vantiv Worldpay. I stepped into crypto during early 2018 as a small-time investor and ever since I got involved there was really no looking back.

 

[May]

👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

 

Glad you’re here with us!

 

We’d like to know all about OnePad! Are you ready for our questions?

 

[Dileep Thakur]

Certainly

 

[May]

Great!

 

Can you tell us about OnePad and the goals that led to the creation?

 

[Dileep Thakur]

So OnePad is the first all-inclusive decentralized IDO & NFT launchpad on harmony blockchain helping projects raise initial capital for their crypto projects. The idea to create OnePad was basically inspired by the lack of any decent IDO and NFT platform on harmony blockchain which was proving to be a major hurdle in launching projects on harmony.

 

[May]

Impressive!

 

What innovative solution is OnePad bringing to topple its competitors with similar offerings in crypto?

 

[Dileep Thakur]

So OnePad aims to become an all-inclusive project launchpad on harmony blockchain and help early stage promising projects raise initial capital in a fully decentralized manner. OnePad is the first all-inclusive launchpad to offer IDO Launchpad, NFT Marketplace, and Staking as a service to any project looking to build on harmony under one roof.

 

[May]

Speaking of staking, are there yield farming incentives on OnePad? If yes, please walk us through them.

 

[Dileep Thakur]

Yes, will be launching staking for OND, and once live people can stake OND to mint xOND which gives them guaranteed allocation in our upcoming IDO launches as well as NFT drops along with earning lucrative APR.

 

[May]

👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

 

What are the advantages of OnePad on the Harmony blockchain?

 

[Dileep Thakur]

Well, Harmony is a rapidly growing blockchain ecosystem with hundreds of new projects launching on Harmony each quarter. Its EVM compatible open-source blockchain which allows running ethereum applications with 2-second transaction finality and 1000 times lower fees. Harmony’s $300m ecosystem fund is an exciting addition to its fleet which will incentivize Web3 developers to build next-generation applications and protocols on harmony blockchain thus providing more opportunities for OnePad.

 

[May]

Awesome! So can you tell us about $ONE, $OND, and the utilities?

 

[Dileep Thakur]

OnePad (OND) is the utility come governance token of the OnePad platform. It allows OND stakers to participate in IDOs, Earn decent APR by staking and using OND to purchase NFTs. As a token holder, you have various means of benefiting such as earning staking rewards, getting IDO allocation, and receiving NFT drops from partner projects.

 

[May]

Solid usecase! How about $ONE?

 

[Dileep Thakur]

Well, it’s the native asset of harmony protocol and it would have many use cases within dapps and protocols being built on harmony.

 

[May]

That’s great!

 

What major news should we still look forward to from OnePad by the end of the year?

 

[Dileep Thakur]

So we have an exciting roadmap for the rest of 2021 starting from the IDO launch and token listing later this month followed by staking launch and IDO platform.

 

[May]

That’s exciting!

 

[Dileep Thakur]

🥳

 

[May]

Let’s now hear from our Twitter community.

 

Ready?

 

[Dileep Thakur]

yes

 

Segment 2 – Twitter Questions

 

[May]

How does OnePad ensure the process of launching one’s project is hassle-free and also beneficial?

 

Twitter Username: @cradled_in_

 

[Dileep Thakur]

Great question so we will have a whole team assisting projects with smooth launch starting from onboarding them to taking care of every aspect of business and if they need assistance with fundraising help them with that as well.

 

[May]

Super!

 

You comment that OnePad’s token allocation model provides a guaranteed IDO allocation for all token stakeholders, thus providing better opportunities. Exactly how does this allocation model work and what makes it a “fair” system?

Thank you!

 

Twitter Username: @iracundito

 

[Dileep Thakur]

We would release this information at a later stage since it’s our secret sauce!

 

🎉

 

[May]

We understand 😅

 

Does holding a certain number of $OND tokens guarantee IDO allocation for all projects or every project will have different allocation criteria?

 

Twitter Username: @static_current

 

[Dileep Thakur]

So each project being launched on OnePad will have the same eligibility criteria unless it’s changed by the team for some reason.

 

[May]

Sounds good!

 

Next up, we have three questions from our website community!

 

Segment 3 – Website Questions

 

[May]

How does OnePad with low criteria for entry deliver maximum value to investors?

 

Telegram Username: @danWickerjil

 

[Dileep Thakur]

So our launchpad model works in sync with the OND token and if you stake OND token you can participate in IDOs, Earn decent APR by staking and using OND to purchase NFTs. Thus it gives you a multi-directional revenue stream and delivers maximum value.

 

[May]

👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

 

Every user now asks for a fairlaunch Launchpad, so is OnePad supporting this in your platform? also may I ask about the lock-in-Duration-based mechanism in tier level system, how the calculation works for this mechanism?

 

Telegram Username: @MinxOxyde

 

[Dileep Thakur]

I agree with you and it has been at the core of our project to build a fairlaunch platform that allows participation from every eligible individual. Talking about the lock-in duration we have three tiers of staking which allows OND holders of different sizes to benefit.

 

We will release more information on this in the coming days

 

[May]

That’s great!

 

By being a holder of your OND token I can benefit in multiple ways, such as earning participation rewards, getting an IDO allocation, and more. So, I would like to know how I can go about acquiring this token? Which digital wallets do you work with or will there be a pre-sale of this token? Could you give us more details about it?

 

Telegram Username: @AgenciaATM

 

[Dileep Thakur]

OND is not available in the market yet and once it goes live you will be able to buy it from PancakeSwap and UniSwap followed by leading tier 1 & 2 exchanges

 

[May]

It’s now time to take questions from our live audience.

 

[Dileep Thakur]

sure

 

[May]

In this 4th segment, I will open the group for some seconds for the live community to shoot you some pressing questions.

 

Please pick four original questions to answer.

 

Try to ignore generic, vague, and copy-paste questions 😊

 

Ready?

 

[Dileep Thakur]

—Chat was then opened for the live community to send in their questions—

 

Segment 4 – Live Questions

 

[Talha Ayub]

I like Gaming, but I did not see any gaming plan in your roadmap. Do you have any plans for the future?

 

[Dileep Thakur]

We do not support gaming at the moment

 

[Zeynep]

Harmony projects are not so popular & I believe there’s a great reason for launching OnePad on the Harmony blockchain. What was the reason your team decided to make this move? 

 

[Dileep Thakur]

Every new ecosystem takes time to evolve and if you establish yourself before others you always have the early movers advantage

 

[Queen]

Would you have multiple pools and any benefits for OnePad holders, and Is your IDO launchpad finalized yet?

 

[Dileep Thakur]

Yes there will be multiple pools and multiple tiers and we are in talks with several IDO platforms to conduct our upcoming IDO

 

[repmujduolc]

Does the launchpad team differ from that of the harmony team? and does OnePad see itself moving to an entirely different blockchain in the future? 

 

[Dileep Thakur]

Yes, the OnePad team is independent and has no direct affiliation with the Harmony project or its team.

 

[May]

Aaaaaaand it’s a wrap! 🎉

 

Thank you for your patience with us, Mr. Thakur

 

[Dileep Thakur]

Thanks for hosting us today it’s been a pleasure to be with you all

 

[May]

We understand you’re in a hurry, but thank you for taking time out to talk to our community about OnePad.

 

We wish you all the best with your project 🎉

 

Until next time, do have a great day!

 

[Dileep Thakur]
