Words From The Team

April 2022 is one of the key growth months for Atocha Protocol where we see another significant growth in the community base and with a higher engagement level from the community. This is a result of having a team of Atocha Helpers (part of the Ambassador Program) helping the core team to engage with the community and involving in content creation. With the impending IDO, this is a good sign that shows the project has a good following which is active and interested.

In May 2022, the focus will be on the two IDOs that will be happening on NearPad and Skyward Finance. Despite having the IDO in a rather sideways market sentiment where investors are rather conservative, we do believe that the IDO can be carried out smoothly. The most important intention of IDO for Atocha Protocol is to onboard the community members to be loaded with ATO as it is a crucial piece to be interacting with the puzzle game Webapp soon. We want to enable the ATO holders to be able to participate in various utilities that our native token has to offer:

  1. Activate your wallet to be able to play games on Puzzle Game Webapp
  2. Gas fee spending on Webapp
  3. Sponsoring puzzle games (which will trigger Atocha Point generation for Creator and Players for that particular sponsored puzzle game)
  4. Receiving rewards in ATO
  5. Provide liquidity for Atocha Protocol’s DEX listings

The team has considered the selling pressure that will be faced by everyone which is a foreseeable outcome for all IDO projects as investors will tend to offload their portion to cover costs and take profits. The one thing that the team is doing diligently to hedge against such selling pressure is to provide incentives (utility) for the ATO holders to deploy their tokens rather than sell-off. That would largely help in stabilizing the market for a period of time. Of course, it is totally up to the market to decide and we as a team should be firm and keep building to deliver value for the community.

The last thing that we want to highlight is that value building takes time and the team is constantly improving the infrastructure while onboarding more talented Creators to build on Atocha Protocol. The rule of thumb for us is that the more valuable puzzle game onboard to Atocha Protocol, the larger the prize pool can be created for the puzzle games, which will lock away more supplies from the circulation. With that, we are confident with the tokenomics that we created to befit the purpose of empowering the Creator Economy and bringing exciting puzzle game adventures to the community.

We have created a simple How-To for the interested Creators out there who want to join Atocha Protocol: https://medium.com/@atochaprotocol/how-to-build-on-atocha-protocol-525ba756a97e
