Cardano NFT Column: Fast Society
This week’s guest on Cardano NFT column is a project launching a Play And Earn (P&E) mobile game on both Cardano and Solana: Fast society.
The previous guest was one project developing a P2E RPG-like autobattler game that collaborates with other NFT projects.
This initiative is a reference point for NFTs on Cardano and every week or so we will invite someone to answer some questions and give us an update directly from the Cardano community.
Considering that many of our readers are new to the crypto space, we want one mix of simple and technical questions.
Cardano NFT Project: Fast Society
Hi, glad to have you here. Introduce your team, where are you from, what is your background?
Hello. Thanks for the opportunity to speak, I’m glad to be here.
All The Fast Society team consists of people belonging to the Polish joint-stock company Oxygen, so most of our team comes from games. Although a limited company sounds like a large company, we are a team of 30 passionate game people with a mission to innovate in games and web3. Oxygen, or – more specifically – the subsidiary, Mousetrap gamehas been developing and publishing games for over 5 years.
I, who Founder of Fast Society and CEO of Oxygenhave also been playing games for many years, although I come from data analysis.
As a company, we have come together experience in the web3 industry for almost 1.5 years – Oxygen makes games for several projects, including CryptoDino. Thanks to this, we were able to get to know this market, get to know it and gain valuable knowledge and experience, which allowed us to create Fast Society with a decent background behind us.
What is Fast Society? How do you use NFT technology in your project?
If we want to say briefly what Fast Society is, the first thing I have to say is one game project related to the NFT collection. Our main goal is to create a fun first, but still Play and earn / Play to own the game and build our cars into it.
Well, speaking of cars – Fast Society is a collection of 8,888 NFT Muscle cars. They are hand painted and extremely unique. More than 180 items fall into 20 categories – such as spoilers, wheels, wheel arches, emblems, mirrors and so on. And these elements make up our cars.
But right from the start, we also wanted to give our investors some added value. Therefore, the perfect opportunity was when one of our shareholders came to us and said he had a real one 1969 Ford Mustang Mach1 which was once given to the founder of Woodstock. We will, we have this car. And if our collection is sold out, there will be a raffle where one of the token holders will win the Mustang.
In addition, our project is cross chainbecause we want to be pollinates both Cardano and Solana. And our collection will be split equally between the two chains – 4,444 cars on Cardano and 4,444 cars on Solana. This is a very unusual combination, but that’s what it’s all about – we want to innovate, and we believe that projects must work on different chains because at the end of the day we want it show the web3 market to as many web2 users as possible. We believe that our actions will appeal to society.
You are launching both Cardano and Solana, can you expand your choice and strategy? Aren’t you worried about the tribalism between the two ecosystems?
We know that creating one collection based on two chains is unusual. Our choice is related to the fact that from the very beginning, before the start of the project, we hesitated between these two currencies. Both Cardano and Solana have so much to offer, many benefits and great communities.
We can see the great potential in both chains – e.g. in Cardano more stability, and in Solana maybe better UX. And yes, of course we recognize that these environments are not very fond of each other. But maybe they just need to a project that will link them together. We think Fast Society is a great place for both communities and our game will make sure that whether someone is a Cardano supporter, a Solana supporter or nothing and just a casual gamer, everyone will enjoy it. And we want to be available to the largest possible community. We want many people to visit the NFT world and our world, so in our opinion, being on two blockchains is a big help, and it’s certainly more “approachable” than just building on one of them.
However, I would like to point out that, as I mentioned: our collection will be split in two. And so is our mint. The first part is sold on Cardano (29 and 30 November) and there will be 4,444 cars. Sure, our Twitter is one, and our Discord is one, but there will be two coins. For us, of course, it’s a bit more work, because we have to lay two separate sides for the mint, place NFTs on two chains, and so on. But we are sure that the collection and what it entails is so attractive to fans of both currency and that it is simply worth doing.
So I think we are the place there literally everyone can find something for themselves.
There are many buzzwords circulating around the web such as P2E (Play to Earn) and P&E (Play and Earn). Can you share your thoughts on this and how Fast Society approaches the synergy between NFTs and gaming?
Fast Society will primarily focus on games, so this question is perfect. We do one fun-first game. NFTs are an enrichment of a well-crafted entertainment game.
In general, we think NFTs are good for gaming because players can truly own items obtained through playing the game. The Mousetrap Games team who make our game have also been working hard for over a year on the game for the real OG project on Cardano, CryptoDino. This game already looks great and the Dino tokens fit perfectly. We already got to know this market (of web3 games) thanks to this and other projects that we supported, so we enter the synergy between NFT and gaming from the expert position.
We call our upcoming mobile game Play AND Earn and Play to Own, not Play to Earn because we don’t want the main and, I can say, the only goal of this game to be profit because we associate it with a poor production made only to make money. What is very important and we have to emphasize it properly – we want to get as many web2 players into the game as we can because the player base should be as big as possible, not just limited to web3 players. That’s why we’re going to make a mobile game – the mobile market is the largest of all gaming markets. And we want to provide all players with real quality and great satisfaction/pleasure/enjoyment – as we are used to doing with our games. Mousetrap Games has already released over 50 games and they really know what they are doing.
That is why our P&E game will be refined in every way so that every player, regardless of whether they have NFT or not, can play it and enjoy it. However, the owners of our tokens who enter the game with their own car will be able to earn thanks to the game and will have more opportunities than people without NFT (but without affecting the balance of the game, from the perspective of web2 players) , and a chance to participate in revenue sharing from the game.
