Guest: Tanya Badere/POLKER CREW
Asia community: First of all, please introduce yourself to us. What is your role in Polker Crew?
Tanya Badere/POLKER CREW: I am Tanya, Admin Manager for Polker. As a member of Polker, I help build and execute social media strategy through competitive research, platform determination, benchmarking, messaging, and audience identification. I also deal with queries that come in via our social media accounts and email, tracking them down, and making sure that the issues are resolved quickly and satisfactorily. I also do a lot of AMAs with other crypto communities to spread the word about Polker.
And Polker crew is the name of our community J
Asia community: Could you please give a brief intro to the key features of Polker Crew? What are the advantages offered?
Tanya Badere/POLKER CREW : Polker or PKR.io is a novel platform that offers multiple protocols that can be implemented alone or in combination. We provide solutions to problems that multiple industries that implement blockchain technology are facing.
One of these protocols is our patented Multi-Crypto Marketplace that allows users/gamers to use their cryptocurrency of choice whilst displaying the live value in the fiat currency of choice. The live price data is pulled from an oracle so that all parties involved have accurate price data displayed in the currency of choice. With this protocol, users can have an easy check out process, without having to worry or get confused about multiple chains and wallet usage. The use of multiple cryptocurrencies will also make the platforms more accessible to the wider public.
Polker.Game is the first use case of PKR. It is the first blockchain based, Free to Play & Play to Earn, Poker NFT metaverse game that uses Unreal Engine 4 (we are migrating to UE 5) for immersive and powerful gameplay while utilizing a provably fair system and TRNG technology. Our gaming metaverse combines virtual reality with the endless possibilities of blockchain technology. Our users will be able to enjoy immersive graphics and play among each other within the metaverse. They’ll also be able to edit the graphics and create a personalized gaming experience.
Let me share a video about our game.
Asia community: Now Share with us about your native token, What are the some of utilities of the token in Polker Crew Ecosystem?
Tanya Badere/POLKER CREW : $PKR is our native token that powers our ecosystem. Currently, it can be used to purchase the PKR pass, chips, in-game cosmetics, etc. in our in-game market.
Asia community: Could you share a bit about security and also what benefits you to incentivize users choose Polker Crew?
Tanya Badere/POLKER CREW : Our Smart Contract was fully audited by Beosin. Back in September last year, the penetration testing and security audit was done by Quinel, a leading independent and internationally accredited testing laboratory/inspection body in the field of gaming, serving the industry for almost 10 years and have laboratories in Italy, Malta, UK and Argentina leveraging international expertise. We continue to carry out extensive penetration tests on the updates that have been made since our last Security Audit. We will have Quinel back on board to run full penetration testing of the game to ensure all aspects of the game are fully secure at launch. Polker is a long term project as Polker.game is just the first of the games that we plan to release in our ecosystem. To incentivize long-term holdings, we have staking for both our ERC-20 and BEP-20 PKR holders. Staking was just extended until Sep 25th, 2022!
Asia community: What are the future targets for Polker Crew? Can you tell us about your upcoming Roadmap?
Tanya Badere/POLKER CREW : We are currently focused on getting our game made available to the wider public. We have recently decided to migrate to Unreal Engine 5, while adding the following features Full Tournament Modes (STT & MTT) Full Play-to-Earn System (Scraps, Keys, Chests, Accessories, NFTS, etc.) NFT Merging Implementation NFT Dressing Room (NFT customization both in-game and on-chain) Dedicated Table Option (Private Tables — invite-only as chosen by creator) Development for our MAC version as well as our mobile game is underway. https://polker.game/about-us/#roadmap
Asia community: Q1. Partnerships are crucial for Adoption, so can you tell us what partners you have currently and future partnerships?
Tanya Badere/POLKER CREW : We have several partners such as Unreal Engine for our graphics, Polygon for their scaling solution, TronPad, BSCPad, Bondly, and BullPerks for our launchpads. We have been added to Master Ventures’s portfolio. We have partnered with ICO Pantera, a leading growth accelerator in Korea and the Asia, to help us spread awareness about Polker and improve our exposure in South Korea and Asia; Raze Network, to help us secure the metaverse we are building and to keep the initial values of De-Fi — privacy and security. We are also working with Gamerse, lauded as the ‘NFT Gaming Social Economy in Metaverse’. Polker gamers will be part of the first-ever NFT Gaming Social Ecosystem which will allow them to explore popular NFT games aggregated and brought together in a single social marketplace. We are also integrating Chainlink’s price feeds into our own patented multi-crypto marketplace. We work with Refinable for our NFT marketplace. As for our next partners, we will announce them as soon as the details are finalized and they are integrated to our project.
Asia community: Q2. AUDIT play an IMPORTANT role in enhancing the stability of any PROJECT. Do you have AUDIT CERTIFICATES . Or are you working to AUDIT your project to make it more secure and reliable?
Tanya Badere/POLKER CREW : We already have audits as mentioned earlier — Beosin for our smart contract, and Quinel for our game. We continue to enhance our security protocols, and complete quality checks every time new features are added to our platform.
Asia community: Q3. Did you consider community feedback/requests during the creation of your product in order to expand on fresh ideas for your project? Many projects fail because the target audience and clients are not understood. So I’d like to know who your ideal consumer is for your product?
Tanya Badere/POLKER CREW : Definitely! Our tokenomics was updated in January as a result of conversations with our community. We continue to have open discussions with them in our chatrooms for our community and our early access players and we take feedback constructively. As for our audience, Polker is a free-to-play and play-to-earn game, so we have a wider target demographic — from poker players, gamers, those that are new to crypto, or long-time crypto investor. When we conceptualized Polker, we wanted to create a user-intuitive platform for cryptoheads, gamers, and those with no knowledge of gaming, reduce the barrier to entry that blockchain has.
Asia community: Q4. Almost 80% investors have just focused on price of token in short term instead of understanding the real value of the project. Can you tell us on motivations and benefits for investors to hold your token in long term?
Tanya Badere/POLKER CREW : Polker is a long-term project, and our poker game is intended to be just the first game in our ecosystem. That will also be released in other platforms — MAC, IOS, and Android. What we provide is the chance for our players and community to be part of the evolution of NFT gaming and the universe. We currently have staking to incentivize long-term holding, and we will have LP farming in the future.
Asia community: LQ5. What are the plans to educate and raise, awareness, and adoption among the community, to make more people understand about the project easily?
Tanya Badere/POLKER CREW : Details about our project, our game are posted on all our official accounts — from our white paper to our roadmap to game features. We have our Medium posts for more in-depth information about our game, dev reports, updates on staking, etc. We are fairly responsive to questions posted in our Telegram channels, discord, social media accounts and emails. We will have more activities lined up in the future once our game is ready for full release.
Question 1: Can you list 1–3 killer features of this project that makes it ahead of its competitors? What is the competitive advantage your project has that you feel most confident about.????
Tanya Badere/POLKER CREW : For our game, we have our Provably Fair System which uses the potential of the blockchain to provide full transparency in every aspect of gameplay by using our multiple patents granted technology. The player is fully protected against fraud and cheating. We store every gameplay action and value as a hash in a smart contract on the blockchain. By taking the raw values and hashing them, you are able to compare and verify the results independently to prove there was no manipulation. Our True Random Number Generator (TRNG) system is a provably fair and auditable technology that uses both SHA-256 hashing in combination with blockchain technology. The protocol uses seed words from the users (typically players) combined with a seed word from the PKR protocol. The resulting SHA-256 hash is then used to interact with a smart contract on the blockchain network. The resulting block header from this transaction is used to create a provably fair random number. Our graphics is currently built on Unreal Engine 4, which powers real time graphics, highly detailed assets like dealers, environments, tables and visual effects. We are in the process of migrating to UE5.
So we have F2P, P2E, NFTs, metaverse, 3D Unreal Engine 5 graphics, TRNG and Provably Fair System — elements that we believe will redefine poker gaming industry.

Tanya Badere/POLKER CREW : Our play-to-earn system is built around our NFTs. You win scraps from regular gameplay. These scraps can be forged to keys, which you can use to open treasure chests. The chests will either have — cosmetics, more play chips, and NFTs. The NFTs can be traded in our in-game marketplace or a secondary market.
