Bà Tân | : Today our guest is: @erichungnguyen from Spores Network.

Ahrix : Welcome to the IM community.

Bà Tân | : Please introduce yourself a bit: @erichungnguyen.

Eric Hung Nguyen — Spores : My name is Eric, CEO and Co-founder of Spores Network, Asia-premier NFT marketplace.

My background is in Investment and Trading, first working on the Trading Desk at the largest Japanese Investment Bank — Nomura in London, trading a book of over 300m USD of high yield and distressed credit for 5 years.

Later, I moved to Elliot Management, one of the world largest hedge funds with over $70bn AUM where I was senior investment analyst overseeing a portfolio of over $2bn.

I joined the cryptocurrency space in early 2017, and actively invested and advised in many early stage blockchain projects.

Back in Vietnam, I was poached by One Mount Group’s venture OneHousing, a venture created by Vietnam’s top two billionaires of Real Estate and Banking to create financial derivatives products for real estate in Vietnam.

Thats where I met my cofounder Duc, he was COO of OneHousing at the time, and we started Spores together in early 2021

Thanks for the detailed and impressive introduction.

Eric Hung Nguyen — Spores : lets do it!

Bà Tân | : Question1. Could you please give us a simple introduction of “ Spores “ ? What’s the motivation for starting build “ Spores “ ?

Eric Hung Nguyen — Spores : Spores is the Asia premier NFT marketplace, a cross-chain DeFi-powered NFT marketplace defining decentralized pop culture

Both me and Duc, my co-founder, share the vision of the future of the digital metaverse so think of The Matrix meet Ready Player One, we believe that will be the world 15–20 years from now people will spend a large part of their time in.

And NFTs for us are digital ownership and much more, a digital world needs digital ownership. As we live and spend more time in those digital worlds, digital ownership will be very important, and will be as important as owning physical houses or cars today.

That is how we both came together and founded Spores, we hope this is a small beginning for something much bigger.

Bà Tân | : End of session 1

Bà Tân | : We will move on to session 2

Bà Tân | : Sessions 2: We will pick 5 Best Question from our members on Our Tweet (https://twitter.com/IM_Communityitw/status/1419865811284492288).

Bà Tân | : Question1. On your website, I learned that Spores Network Founders believe that a digital “metaverse” is being built today which will revolutionize our physical and digital lives, although, can you tell me why and how Spores Network would be implicated in the development of this metaverse? @tunumia020

Eric Hung Nguyen — Spores : Good question. We want to be active participant in that help shape the future digital metaverse

1. Would be launching our NFT marketplace so all the NFTs and digital items and be listed and trade there

2. We will also deploy Defi solutions as phase 2 to support the NFTs liquidity, solutions like NFT fractional ownership, NFT ETFS, NFTs lending, renting… to help fuel the growth of NFTs economies

3. We are launching an ecosystem fund that invest in NFTs and Defi, our long term play is we want to be Netflix of the NFTs world, i.e. to have many amazing contents and IPs listed with us, as well as invest and develop many new exciting IPs and contents for the NFT world

Bà Tân | : Question2.I read that Spores is a cross-chain DeFi-powered NFT marketplace that provides Digital Art, E sports, Anime animation, Music, Film, and Gaming. How can users Easy minting and managing NFTs on multiple chains, buying/selling & swapping items across many blockchains?? @DavidClarkkk

Eric Hung Nguyen — Spores : Our market is curated, so we are different from Opensea where everyone can mint and list their NFTs. Creators can submit a form to join us and will go through the curation process with our team of professional artists and curators.

This is to ensure that the NFTs that potential buyers are look at are of a certain quality, we focused on upper-high end NFTs and artists

We are adopting multiple blockchain, when we launch in Q3, we will adopt ETH and BSC, with Polygon comming soon after

In the rest of 2021, we have plan to adopt Cardano, WAX, Solana

Bà Tân | : Question3. Could you explain the speciality of your “Fully-stack interoperable NFT-DeFi platform” that you are working on? How will it be different and more beneficial that others in the market? What benefits does it provide to investors ? @Aravind75154890

Eric Hung Nguyen — Spores : Our focus is on Content, as we believe content is king, we intend to bring onboard many amazing artists, contents and IPs so that we have amazing NFTs pipeline that users want to buy. This couple with Defi and Cross-chain capacity to make the user experience seemless and help us push for mass adoption

Obvious benefit to investors is that we focus on aligning the success of our platform with our tokens, as our platform grows the tokens will also grow in the long term

Bà Tân | : Question4. Spores will have Crypto & Fiat Payment between multiple chains. Does this mean that the tax on transactions and GAS will remain very high? Or do you have a system to reduce the cost of transactions for users who use this tool? @CaoHa27628628

Eric Hung Nguyen — Spores : This is actually a lot more simpler than this, we will have multiple payment options, so users can pay using crypto (ETH, BTC, Stable coin). Or alternatively can pay with credit card as we are incorporating fiat payment option with on/off ramp payment solution provider. So this allows a seamless user experience with the ease of use.

Bà Tân | : Question5. I Love STAKING,farming & will always be interested in the Staking where investors get passive income from, so What are the Staking Pool pairs at #Spores_network ? What makes your Staking ecosystem more attractive to investors & connoisseurs of the Staking ecosystem like me? @tanmoy284910957

Eric Hung Nguyen — Spores : Thanks, great to hear that you are big fan of staking. We are rolling our Staking option shortly after our IDO on 29/07. At first it will be LP tokens staking so SPO/ETH.

Because our tokens have actual use cases, we want to make our token holders feel well rewarded for holding on to SPO! We aim to align the value of SPO tokens with the success of Spores platform, so best case scenario you earn passive income and the value grow over the long term!

Also we plan to have additonal benefit to long-term stakers like NFT airdrops, lottery tickets or exclusive access to our NFT pre-sales

For certain project we incubated, when they reach certain size, they can seek independent financing with our support!

Q3. Spores Network caught my attention, I want to invest, but I want to know if as $SPO investors, do we have the right to participate in the governance of SPORES? If so, what kinds of decisions could we vote on the project?

Eric Hung Nguyen — Spores : Yes, we want our token holders to participate in governance decisons, these ranging from choosing which feature that they want to include on our platform.

We plan to expand the list as the time goes on, we are very interested to hear from the community as well, which part of governance would they want to be involved with

Q4. *Among the use cases of SPORES include GAMING, ARTWORK, COLLECTIBLES, ENTERTAINMENT, & SPORTS. On which side is your focus more important and also more profitable?*

Eric Hung Nguyen — Spores : Great question! We love all those 5 verticals, but I think in term of when which vertical become big will be different in term of timing.

When we roll out it will be with Digital Arts and Gaming first:

In digital Art, we are working with top digital artists that have their works sold for 5–6 digit figures on Nifty/Opensea. They will be amongst the work that we feature early on.

For Gaming, we looking to list all top in-game items of major blockchain games. We have already signed partnership with over 10 blockchain games that we are eager to announce in the comming days. We do believe that Blockchain gaming will be huge and Play to Earn is here to stay!

Q5. How did you get the community involved in developing the SPORES NETWORK project? and how do you build a strong community to grow globally?

Eric Hung Nguyen — Spores : We have community across 10 languages from Vietnamese, Korean, Chinese, Japanese, Philippino, Spainish, Russian….
