Let me introduce myself a bit.
I have been working in the IT industry for 10 years and started as a game designer and game producer 7 years ago. My main role involves conceptualizing creative aspects and production plans.
I’m really into creating hardcore games and creating engaging experiences with the storyline, where players can immerse themselves in the gaming world.
I have been involved in blockchain technology for the last 2 years. As a game lover, I see many potentials of integrating blockchain into a game project which empowers a fully decentralized gaming.
We aim to create an economy in the game which helps players not only enjoy playing but also earn a profit, and completely can earn and invest to create more income.
DoragonLand naturally comes as my brainchild and I expect a lot from it. Again a big thanks to our lady, Ashley for being my trusted partner in this project.
First and foremost, thank you for the heartwarming welcome. Let me introduce myself. I’m Ashley Dang, CMO of DoragonLand.

Wow. DoragonLand has a great team with a passion for games and blockchain guys.
Thanks for the great introduction, we will have several questions selected for Part 1. Ready to start?

DoragonLand is a 3D tower rush game that integrates battle card gameplay and blockchain technology to create fast-paced brawls among dragon warriors where players can duel with others to collect rewards of NFT items and DOR tokens in real-time.
The characters in the game are in strong and bold shape, cute style with an energetic and playful tone, which allows players to truly enjoy the exotic experience.
I would like to say that DoragonLand has so many outstanding features. I will list out some of them:
- NFT collectibles: There are dragons and in-game items with different characteristics with high-end artworks that truly have value both in-game and in the real world.
- Marketplace: DoragonLand marketplace provides an efficient place for players to trade NFT items and earn massive financial benefits.

When creating a game, the name is really essential; could you tell us about the beginnings of “DoragonLand”?
Thank you for your interesting question, I would like to share with you the meaning of this fascinating name.
I always love traditional stories about dragons. They are strong and mysterious creatures on our planet. We are inspired by their bravery and their strength in novels and fairy stories.
I would like to produce a game where players can immerse in the stories of these fascinating creatures while earning their effort in the game.
Doragon in Japanese means legendary dragon. In Japan, dragons are representative of strength, justice, and protection. For human beings, dragons are considered powerful talismans against unknown forces.
DoragonLand is a fantasy world where players can immerse themselves in competitive battles between dragons and follow a gripping narrative journey to conquer nature.
We strongly believe that the meaning behind DoragonLand will inspire all of us. And for our community, DoragonLand will become more promising and worthy of your waiting.
Can you share something about your characters in games? How can we start playing?
There are different Dragon breeds: human, orc, elf, undead,… which are inspired by 7 common races in fantasy games. Each of them has different characteristics and strengths and they play a specific role in the gameplay.
For example: Dragon tanker, Dragon Damage dealer, Dragon Support, Dragon Pusher,. They are fascinating creatures that are naughty, strong, and very brave. They protect their own land from invaders and fiercely compete for the leaderboard position.
Continue following our channels to get more reveals of DoragonLand characters, we will update our community along with the game development.
Players need to collect 8 playable cards to join the game.
Thanks for the great answers!

Some outstanding points of Mirana marketplace include:
- High return, low-cost, and time-consuming

Every NFTs in DoragonLand are valuable assets. They are meticulously designed and crafted by our artists from ThunderCloud. However, there may be some NFTs that have more special features that every collector desires to obtain. These may be the epic and legendary ones.
Thank you very much for your answers! This is the great first part of AMA
Now moving on the second part: Twitter questions
Question 1 from @KaoriRan
Liquidity, transaction fees and slippage are always important factors in finance services. How does DoragonLand solve the above problem to attract users?
$DOR is run on BSC so the transaction fee can be reduced a lot. As for the slippage issues, we have a plan to burn NFT, increase token utility by creating more products in the ecosystem which strengthens the token and users can avoid putting all eggs in one basket.
The price of Starterpack of DoragonLand will be stable at 200 USD regardless of token price so that players can join the game easily.
Question 2 from @Waraitake
In some play-to-earn models, players earn in-game currency and game items that are not tradable for real cash outside the game environment. What revenue model will your P2E feature use? How possible will users be able to transform their game earnings and NFTs into real rewards?
Players can earn back by engaging in the game like doing quests, participating in battles, tournaments,.ect. In addition, users can also earn by joining in gamefi activities and trading their NFTs items on the marketplace.
If in-game currency and in-game items/materials have high value in the gaming market, they will be transformed into NFT in the future. So anyone who owns various resources will really benefit when transformation.
Question 3 from @upshorewo
Can you talk about some major utilities of the DoragonLand token?
$DOR is the utility token in the game which can be used in various cases:
- Participating in the game: Players could use DOR to buy cards and in-game items on the marketplace. Through gameplay, players use their characters and show their skills and different strategies to fight in the battles.
- Trading on the marketplace: By owning tokens, DOR token holders participate in the decentralized financial market to earn more profit. Also, players can buy their NFTs on the market to upgrade their dragon warriors. Vice versa, players can sell these NFT items to get DOR back.
- GameFi: Besides the play-to-earn mechanism in the game, players can also gain passive income from engagement in the game. Gamefi features like staking, farming, minting, betting will be updated along with the development of our project.
- Payment: $DOR holders can use $DOR to settle payments and experience many further Gamefi functions in the near future along with the development of the game.
Thank you for sharing with us
Question 4 from @phuoppacn
What are the key features and modifications of Clash Royale that inspired you? What makes your game attractive, addictive and assuring to be a rising star in the Blockchain and NFT game industry?
I love the mesmerizing experience in the game as I can duel players in real-time, unlock new arenas, discover new cards and expand my collection. I love the challenge of conquering new levels, there are always new heights that challenge players.
Being inspired by Clash Royale, DoragonLand is an insanely simple yet hard to master the online battle brawler video game. The game integrates elements including action, collectible card games, tower defense, and RTS. DoragonLand pits players in games featuring two or four players (1v1 or 2v2), in which the objective is to destroy the towers of opponents, with the demolition of the Master’s Tower resulting in an instant win.
DoragonLand offers players a diverse system of activities including Cards, Quests (Daily, Weekly and Progress Quests), Clan, Clan Wars, P2E, Esport & tournaments,… There are no same activities to make sure players can enjoy the game. More activities also mean more opportunities to earn. Do you think this is what makes DoragonLand special?
Question 5 from @bizinphu
DoragonLand is an NFT gaming, but real users shouldn’t matter quantity but quality, I mean how valuable NFT is that we can get in your game, what factors give them real value that allows them to easily market in the NFT market?
Every NFTs in DoragonLand is valuable asset. They are meticulously designed and crafted by our artists from ThunderCloud. However, there may be some NFTs that have more special features that every collector desires to obtain. This will be discovered in our game.
NFT items will still last forever even when the game is closed as investors can trade these NFT items to other common tokens. Also, our development team has plans to develop an ecosystem with an aim to leverage this game content that can be used in other games to diversify token utilities and increase the flexibility of token as well as its value.
3. Free questions
Now get ready for the most impressive part of our AMA — live questions from our community
Everyone can now ask the questions in the “ama-question” room. Link room is: https://discord.gg/guHbYfGc
The question should have the hashtag #Doragon
Everyone starts to ask questions now!
DoragonLand is an insanely simple yet hard to master online battle brawler video game”. Can you explain what this means?
Yeah, interesting question. Let me give you more insight
- Easy to play: it means that everyone can join the game, even newbies. Just by drag and drop the cards into the battlefield.
- Hard to master: It means that players fight against other opponents of different levels and climb to the top of the leaderboard. There will always be the next level of challenges for players to conquer. Each card has distinct features and it’s hard to combine perfectly. It requires the master of the cards and the ability to be flexible in different situations.
Are there any plans for Doragon beta testing?
Our MVP is the first alpha version, and 1 version each week comes along with the game contents; the full game will be released in Jan 2022
Do I have to buy a character to start the game? Or is the game completely free?
As we have mentioned before, you will need at least 8 cards to start playing a game so you will need to spend a certain amount of money to buy NFT cards.
We have the 1st NFT chest sale on November 18, 2021 in which you can buy chest in BUSD but later on it will be in DOR (our token) too.
And one thing you should keep in mind; buying a chest in this 1st sale is very good in terms of cost 😉 The box price is discounted by over 50% ;)) So, do not hesitate to grab some and start playing with our MVP in December!
About the “Clans” feature, what are the requirements that players must meet to be able to join or establish a clan? Is there a minimum or maximum number of players that can form a clan? What are the benefits that players can enjoy from being in a clan? Can a player just join any clan or the player has to be invited to the clan first? What are the requirements that clans must meet to be able to participate in clan wars?
About the “Clans” feature, players need to pay a fee to join and the mode is solo. Players can only set up a new clan until a week after quitting the clans. The maximum number of players in a clan is 50.
The benefit that players can enjoy from joining a clan is that they can gain rewards, lending cards from other players.
As for the requirement, players can join any clan depending on the setting of clan owners that allow players to join freely or need to get permission. However, the minimum number of players required is 5.
Can $DOR be swapped in BSC (or could it be)? Or is it more like an in-game currency that can be used to buy and sell in-game NFTs?
$DOR is an utility type token, can be used both for in-game currency and for usual trading on DEX on CEX platform.
And yes, of course $DOR can be swapped into BSC.
