Q:
How would blockchain evolution contribute to humanitarian solution in the future?
A:
We believe that Blockchain will impact the world in a similar way like internet did. Internet decentralised the information and brought it to everyone, everywhere. Blockchain will do the same to value transfer and redistribution of goods. But the full impact will be realised once Blockchain truly enters our everyday lives. With Geon Network individuals or legal entities (e.g. charities) can set up Geons anywhere in the world to help natural disaster victims or people in war zones. Recipients just need a smartphone with the Geon App to be able to geomine (receive) donations.

Q:
There are different projects already on blockchain offering same use case as Geon. How can Geon be unique or stand out?
A:
Geomining is a totally unique concept, as far as we know no one has such functionality. This, combined with AR and advanced Geon customization gives us huge advantages over the competitors. And why we stand out? Here are a bunch of reasons: -Geon is a part of the most promising future technology trends (AR, mobile, blockchain) -Geon is versatile and has dozens of business and personal use cases -Geon has a solid business plan and monetization model -Geon's team includes specialists that are able to deliver a finished product (MVP product already developed) -Geon is the first project that can allow mainstream adoption of cryptocurrencies -Geon aim to be one of the first fully compliant ICO -Geon is supported by reliable institutions like Pegasus Fintech, Data Ventures, LBMA, Ramparts European Law, MLG Blockchain and others.

Hello I was wondering where can you buy the blockchain games that Loom Network develops?
A:
Zombie Battleground and CryptoZombies are free, and can be downloaded here: https://cryptozombies.io/ For battlegrounds you need early access key i think, only early backers got them as for now I believe. They cannot be found in the App store and it's currently in alpha stage. To access, you need a tester key; if you want one you have to buy some packs on loom.games or...you can ask for one on our discord server: https://discord.gg/jaRhVSB

You could potentially house the properties solely on Loom if that's the only place they're relevant. Just hold ownership on main chain.

Q:
Advantage of using your existing chains is they get to tap into what you’ve already built like the marketplace? For companies who make their own chain, what benefit do they get? SDK let’s them create faster ?
A:
Developers can issue their own tokens on ethereum / PlasmaChain, there's no need to build their own sidechain to do that.Benefits of building their own chain are they can choose the consensus model, how many validators there are and how they're chosen, and if / how those validators are rewarded. Basically they have full control over the chain and it's fully centralized until they choose to open it up, so they can set all the rules. This may make sense for very very large applications that need their own dedicated DAppChain. Advantages to using the shared chain are you just focus on building your app and don't worry about infrastructure, it's built up of a decentralized set of validators so you don't have to secure your own chain against attacks, you get to take advantage of the existing user base and services on the chain like the marketplace, users are more likely to trust your dapp (they don't need to verify and trust your new chain), etc. We have @loomnetworkdev and @loomsdk chats which are more technical if you need some help figuring out the architecture.

We have seen many tokens come and go in this crazy crypto space, for this to be of worth as an incentive for people to participate on the platforms this will be available on the token will need to widely adopted. What sets Geon apart from other tokens which attempted this same approach to blockchain use and how do you plan to gain the required adoption?
A:
We will acquire users mainly by using our own platform and by placing Geons filled with Geon coins in strategic places within our target markets. We believe that information about free cryptocurrency will spread like wildfire - especially with the help of our referral system.

Q:
Using loom sidechain, can I deploy a contract using a modification of the erc721? I would like to add more features, (more than one mapping). Is that possible? Or should we use standardized templates?
A:
If you want to use the contract with the transfer gateway it needs to implement the standard interface functions. Other than that you can add whatever features you want.

Is it true that PO8 will peg a portion of the findings to PO8?
A:
Hello Rebecca~ Yes, that is accurate; upon their first successful expedition, a portion of the recovered treasures such as gold or silver will be placed in a reserve. The reason for this is to bring stability to the token and liquidity for future expeditions and development of new blockchain technologies.

Q:
Have you had any security audits of project smart contracts or protocol? Can you share any results?
A:
Or maybe you plan to organize bug bounty programs for external blockchain developers? The Geon smart contracts are currently going through internal testing stages. Soon, we're planning to push them to our public Github repo, where they will be available for anyone to review and provide feedback. Since we see the core part of Geon Network as an open Dapp, we want to ask the general public to participate in the review and development of the smart contracts. Bug bounties are planned if participation is insufficient. Additionally, if we deem it necessary, we will enlist a third party auditor towards the end of the beta stage.

Q:
What is wrong with traditional marine archaeology industry, and what is PO8’s solution?
A:
Salvors are portrayed as destroyers of cultural and historical relics, all in the name of financial gains. It results in the desecration of important underwater sites. Also because of high salvage costs it is difficult for the government to participate in exploratory excavations. And of course, the auction process is centralised. PO8 will work with the government to assist with the recovery of artefacts. These will live on the blockchain and physically remain in the custody of the PO8 Foundation for continued studies and they will also be exhibited in various museums worldwide. Also, our auction process is decentralised.

A:
It is staked by plasma chain validators and paid by dApp developers to use the chain.
