On September 26th, Hardison, CMO of ATTN, an NFT game project, visited COCOCOIN and had a conversation on the topic of “NFT is quietly approaching, is ATTN the new darling on the eve of the explosion? “
1. With the explosion of the global gaming market and the global crypto market, and DeFi’s appeal to people around the world under pandemic, it is a good timing for the NFT.
2. NFT can break the barrier that do not intersect with the real economy, and is actually a good combination with rare art and limited-edition trendy toys.
3. All NFT assets on ATTN including Cyber Mafia do not have this problem, they are stored on the blockchain and gaming companies have no control over them, as long as you have the private key, you can access and transfer them.
4. ATTN is a digital ecosystem platform for eSports games based on blockchain technology, featuring a variety of popular, self-designed NFT games. Migrating up the chain with tens of millions of active users, ATTN is the ultimate system to integrate all of the business practices in gaming industry, which is committed to creating a closed loop network ecology with the core goal of maximizing the gaming eSports IP value.
5. From the perspective of the benchmarking game industry, every year, the number of participants in various comic conventions, game conferences and handshakes etc. around the world exceeds 1 billion. If one tenth of them are converted into NFT tickets in the near future, this landing scene will undoubtedly have huge imagination.
6. NFT investment risk needs everyone’s attention, we suggest investors not to make impulsive investments, pay attention to your own risk investment capital situation, and at the same time have experience in games and art appreciation to understand the project.
COCOCoin has listed ATTN and launched the “Win an ATTN X1Pro GamePad and 100,000 ATTN Rewards” campaign.
The following is the full text of this conversation:
COCOCOIN: Some new people may not be familiar with you, please introduce yourself and briefly explain how you got involved with the NFT circuit.
Hardison: Hi, I’m Hardison, I previously worked at Blizzard because I’ve always been a fan of digital currencies and artwork.
When I found out that the global blockchain industry was growing at a rapid pace, I chose to join the industry, I chose to join ATTN because the team has a lot of World of Warcraft fans, and I’m a Warcraft myself, so I chose ATTN, and luckily our team members have always been very knowledgeable about steam DLC.
DLC is a lot like NFT only the vector is different, DLC is more centralized, so we chose the de-centralized NFT as the direction of development.
COCOCOIN: what is NFT, how did NFT suddenly hit this year, and what are the core reasons behind it? How do you see the current opportunities that NFT brings to the public?
Hardison: NFT’s full name is (Non-FungibleToken), NFT has the characteristics of indivisibility, scarcity, and the ability to specifically anchor a physical commodity, to specifically represent a virtual item while giving it a unique value, which is particularly revolutionary for the cryptographic gaming space.
The reason why everyone is excited right now is because with the explosion of the global gaming market and the global digital fire coin market, and DeFi’s appeal to people around the world under pandemic, it is a good timing for the NFT.
In terms of games, RPGs and sandboxes are loved by a lot of people, such as My World and Noah’s Ark Evolution which are loved by toys, while similar blockchain games have gained a lot of users.
In terms of token prices, I know a lot of tokens have been rising fast lately, while rare digital art and trendy art are also loved by many traditional and young investors.
There are many dimensions that are contributing to the overall NFT market, and at the same time I think NFT can break the barrier that are not intersecting with the real economy, NFT is actually very well integrated with rare artwork and limited edition trendy toys.
The vast majority of current game items are associated with user game accounts, and all data in the accounts are stored on the game company’s servers.
That is to say, the items you have earned from playing monsters or the equipment you have bought with money do not really belong to you. Once your account is banned, your game assets are gone. All NFT assets on ATTN, including Cyber Mafia, do not have this problem, they are stored on the blockchain and the game company has no control over them, as long as you have the private key, you can access and transfer them.
As for the trading of NFT assets, players can sell different NFTs at the same time, such as: a territory, a legion of mercenaries, a pet dragon, etc. to other players, or they can list them on ATTN’s Trusted Games Digital Asset Trading Platform and let multiple players bid on them.

COCOCOIN: according to public information, ATTN is a gaming digital ecosystem platform based on blockchain technology. Most people actually still have a bit of trouble understanding it, so from your perspective, can you briefly introduce ATTN to our community members?
Hardison: ATTN is a digital ecosystem platform for eSports games based on blockchain technology, featuring a variety of popular, self-designed NFT games. Migrating up the chain with tens of millions of active users, ATTN is the ultimate system to integrate all of the business practices in gaming industry, which is committed to creating a closed loop network ecology with the core goal of maximizing the gaming eSports IP value.
It has been invested by K42, NGC Ventures, Consensus Lab, IOST and other organizations, and the HUOBI mining pool has been selected as the ATTN verification node.
COCOCOIN: Someone just asked about the relationship between NFT and ATTN. If you are a newcomer, how do you explain the relationship between the two?
Hardison: NTF is an expression of crypto currency. It’s also a form of smart contract currently both are issued based on ERC721HE ERC1155 done, and ATTN also has its own smart contracts supporting ERC721 and ERC1155.
If you trade one BTC with another BTC, you are exchanging between two identical things. You don’t lose any value on either end of the transaction, and you end up with one for one.
But if you exchange one NFT for another, the change in value between the two can be very large, even though they may seem to be very little different. This is because each NFT contains a deeper property that distinguishes it from the other NFTs. This is because each NFT contains a deeper set of properties that distinguish it from the other NFTs. These attributes can include metadata, visual effects, serial numbers, and more, all of which can affect the value of that NFT, depending on how much buyers and sellers agree on the value of a particular attribute of that NFT.
ATTN is the name of our token. ERC-721 is non-homogeneous token, which means that each token is unique and they are different from each other. Just like a limited-edition baseball card, each card is not only a common symbol or token, but also has its own identity, thus creating a distinctive value.
ERC-1155 is a complementary version of ERC-721, which solves the problem that 721 can only issue one NFT asset per contract and cannot support large games with a variety of items. Willingly translated as Niftys, meaning exquisite knick-knacks, good artwork in whatever form it manifests has particular potential and value. For example, Andy Warhol, Dali, Picasso, these great works of art are only getting more expensive in terms of rarity. The NFT property is a manifestation of the progress of the artwork, so please look forward to it, pay more attention to us, we can bring you not only the price of the surprise and art surprise.
COCOCOIN: the NFT wave is creeping in, what are the highlights and advantages of ATTN that will make it stand out from the current craze?
1) Players are able to receive an excellent gaming/entertainment experience/belonging and ATTN token contribution rewards through PVP gaming platforms, guild platforms, and live streaming platforms.
2）Through the trusted game digital asset trading platform and dimensional pockets to achieve the sale of game items (assets, IP), and exchanged for fiat currency liquidity.
3) Game CPs can import user traffic through the standard access interface provided by the ATTN distribution platform and provide game services to players worldwide.
(4) Game companies can make account records of user logins on the game anti-addiction platform, and parents can view relevant chain data according to their permissions, and make corresponding regulatory measures as appropriate.
5) As a derivative part of the ATTN ecology, ATTN Mall (name to be determined) is dedicated to building a decentralized asset platform for digital encrypted assets, virtual goods and rare items as well as trendy artwork and toys, supporting ERC721, ERC1155 protocols, as long as the functions include: English and French auctions, one-on-one transactions for individual users, virtual assets or game equipment pre-sales, physical merchants to individual users, artwork true or false price identification.
6) role-playing game “Cyber Mafia” Chinese name of the last road to heaven (tentative), has been released part of the scenes of the data film, first-person RPG sandbox game, loyal to the “cyberpunk” style, this work for adult players to build, using a multi-threaded, non-linear plot, around a two-planet as well as several large city sides to unfold. Players will also have the opportunity to roam the game’s open world at will, as well as the real life mode, where they can work, produce, develop, start companies, buy real estate, travel, fight criminals, commit crimes, build organizations, develop new weapons and equipment, as well as save the planet and restore it to its former glory. Join the Orion Planet for a new human order building.
7) Currently has cooperated with some artists, will carry out cooperation in the field of encrypted digital artwork, including commodity circulation and encrypted digital artwork creation, will cooperate with many trendy artists in the future, and work together on limited encrypted digital artwork.
8) After ATTN Mall (name to be determined) goes online, it will open ATTN’s DEFI section, issue NFT exclusive governance settlement tokens, open liquidity mining based on auction turnover and commodity turnover, and open asset-backed lending of digital encrypted artwork or trendy toys
COCOCOIN: we understand that the ATTN ecology includes eight business segments: the PVP game platform, the guild platform, the live streaming platform, the game anti-addiction platform, the distribution platform, the trusted game digital asset trading platform, the ATTN Mall, and the sub-pocket. If a user is new to the circle NFT, how can he or she participate in the ATTN game? For someone who loves to play games and is very eager to get involved right now.
Hardison: Our game Cyber Mafia is still in development and we have already released some scenes of the profile, our game team are loyal Cyber lovers, you can follow our official information and get the launch notification anytime!
ATTN Mall (name to be announced) will officially launch in November, there will be exclusive NFT game items to experience, you can go to our beta game for online experience, at the same time our mall will cooperate with many global trendy artists, collaborate on encrypted digital artworks, there will be an auction of works, so that you can buy your favorite and collectible works! . We will also open our liquidity mining, so that we can have a better sense of participation.
The next step for the ATTN is to develop the NFT industry. I heard that ATTN is also promoting liquidity mining play, how can users participate? What other new ways might be introduced to play?
Hardison: we’ll be releasing NFTs anchored to real-life physical goods based on ATTN, such as game IP peripherals, handhelds, eSports club collectibles, etc. Similar to the recent release of Juventus (football club)’s NFT collection of football stars on the platform Sorare (ERC-721).
It’s very easy for users to participate, just log in to uniswap or any other synchronized platform, and we’ll be adding auctions of DEATH NYC’s works, all of which are limited editions and will be interesting and highly collectible.
Q: NFT will only show value in specific scenarios. In 2017 there were crypto-cats and Decentraland, and in 2020 the NFT concept will flip again. Three years have passed, are we just entering into the cyclical concept Fomo? Many people think that these existing scenarios are not that imaginative and that NFT needs to expand into broader areas such as insurance and other financial areas, do you have any thoughts on this? What else do you think would be interesting to combine NFT with?
Hardison: Tickets are an industry that we think is solid and has landed, but also one that can be disrupted, with Euro 2020 (which was postponed to 2021 because of the epidemic) having over 20,000 tickets on sale as NFTs.
In terms of benchmarking against the gaming industry, every year all kinds of comic conventions, game launches, sound handshakes around the world… If one tenth of that number is converted into NFT tickets in the near future, there’s a huge potential for the landing scenario. Just like Barley.com is the first choice for concert tickets, these NFT tickets can not only be distributed on ATTN, but also released, purchased or traded through ATTN Mall. Currently it seems that for the combination of artwork is the best segment of NFT, because the price space is huge, the same rare property
COCOCOIN: What do you think are the ways for the average investor to participate in the upcoming wave of NFTs? Based on your experience with NFT investments, what do you think they need to pay special attention to?
Hardison: NFT investment risk needs everyone’s attention, we suggest investors not to make impulsive investments, pay attention to your own risk investment capital situation, and at the same time have experience in games and art appreciation to understand the project.
My suggestion for the unfamiliar investment field is to understand it first and then participate in it. Regarding the game, we can play more time to see if it is the game you like to play, especially the integrity of the game world and story.
For the artwork I suggest you have a basic understanding of the artwork and then decide whether to buy it or not, basically. I also hope you will support ATTN and follow ATTN, our team understands blockchain and game development and art, and because of these three genes, we chose to enter the world of NFT. Please also give us the time to prove our ability. I think it’s worth it to look forward to ATTN and we are willing to be innovators in a new industry.
