Let us start with introduction.
Can you please introduce yourself & your journey in the cryptocurrency field? Also, please introduce Dragon War.
Huy Van: I’m Huy Van — CEO of Dragon War. My background is from Technology & Computer Science. I have spent the last 12 years as a technology consultant, founded a few companies working on Software, Game development both in Singapore and Vietnam.
More than that, I have 30 years experience in… playing Games. I have really loved playing games since I was a child and that passion is still up in me until now. Hope I can share those passions with you through Dragon War.
I joined crypto market since 2017, going through a lot up I down like I mentioned earlier, but I see true values of blockchain technologies and its potential in the future.
That’s the reason why decide to combine our Gaming Development background and Blockchain into Dragon War today
Regarding Dragon War, You can have an overview look of the game at: https://youtu.be/RBLu55B3QOk
Dragon War is the best turn-based Strategy game running on the fastest blockchain Solana
In the turn-based Gaming category, there are so many games out there being created almost every day, but most of them lack quality in terms of gaming experience. With Dragon War we are trying to create a best combination of:
- Engaging & exciting gameplay
- Great 2D Graphics and animations
- Balance in earning mechanisms
- Inspiring stories
To make sure people playing the game can earn values while enjoying and having a great gaming experience with it.
Altcoin Alerts: Interesting
Please share with us all type of Challenges / GamePlay modes we have in Dragon War.
Huy Van: In a short way to describe the game, Dragon War, from the Gameplay aspect, is the combination of the best mechanisms from Axie Infinity and Heroes III, another best turn based strategy of all time.
We have Heroes from different races, commanding their Dragons army into battles with Demon using Ability/Skill Card in PvE mode or with other teams in PvP mode.
As it’s a Strategy game, we are designing the game in the manner that it would be easy to play but super difficult to master. Countless strategic decisions will decide how well you perform in the game.
Beside PvE Campaign mode and PvP mode, we also have following modes will be development in later phases:
- Boss Raid
- Guild War
This is how the PvE simple mode gonna look like when we release tesnet version next month
Altcoin Alerts: Looks exciting
What are the main features of Dragon War Game and when are we expecting Test Game and Final Game to be launched?
Huy Van: Gaming experience is the one we focusing the most in Dragon War
As you can see through the Trailer, The team strives to create the best game experience from focusing on development:
- Gameplay is attractive and interesting
- Stunning 2D graphics and animations
- Balance in the tokenomics mechanism
- Engaging and inspiring storyline
From an interactive perspective when integrating with Blockchain, as I mentioned in the above question, Team chose to develop games on Solana to bring the smoothest experience.
For example, a mint char operation on the BSC can take minutes, longer than when the network is congested. On Solana, it takes 2s.
Currently on the market there are many games developed from traditional games, so when converting to NFT games, many features in the game are limited, reducing the attractiveness of game play. However, for Dragon War, we develop the game at the same time on the blockchain platform, thus creating the perfect connection between the NFT game and the core game experience.
The testnet is expected to be launched 1 weeks after IDO this month. And the release on mainnet will be launch in Q1, 2022
Altcoin Alerts: For everyone who is now interested in investing in Dragon War, please share details about Token sale/IDO, Tokenomics, Partners and more.

Tokenomics of Dragon War somehow would be similar to Axie Infinity as it’s in the same turn-based Game category and we should learn from the best.

The values of these NFT will depend:

Q3. “Fusion Function” One of the methods you use to prevent Inflation of tokens. Can you explain to us what “Fusion Function” is, how does it work? How can this guarantee and prevent inflation for NFT DragonWAR?
Huy Van: Unlike breeding in Axie Infinity, when you “combine” 2 different Axie to breed the 3rd one but the parent ones remain the same.
In Dragon War, when you fuse 2 Dragons to create a more rarity, powerful Dragon. The old 2 Dragons will be gone. That how we can prevent the inflation for NFT in Dragon War.
Of course the 3rd one need to be rare and powerful enough to encourge players to do so.

As mentioned earlier
Running on Solana is another strength of support for our tokenomic. For other games running on BSC or Ethereum, the gas fees are huge so a lot % of reward you need to spend on the gas fees to play the game.
In Sol, the gas fee is a thousand times less than BSC, which is almost equal to 0. That would definitely make the cost for our tokenomic much lower than the others which would also make our tokenomic more sustainable.
As of now, we are pretty confident to position Dragonwar to be the best Turned based Strategy Game on the Fastest Blockchain, Solana.
Q2. In the existing characters there seem to be 4 types that I know of so in each type it has advantages such as tankers, supporters, warriors, and mages. So will this have an impact on game play? And is this needed in every match in the game?
Huy Van: Yes, this have a lot of impact on the Gameplay, as it is Strategy game. As it’s very basic element of the Gameplay. You need to combine all the different elements of the Gameplay, understand its strength, weakness to combine them together to have a best advantages into the battles.
And it doesn’t need for every match in the Game. But the more various classes of Character, Dragon, Skill/ability you have.
The better you can diversify your strategy to apply into different battles to maximize the outcome or the Rewards.
Q3. Will you please tell me DRAGON WAR IS ONLY PLAYABLE ON PC or It has any Mobile version or not?
Huy Van: We will release first version on PC and Web first so that we can focus on 1 platform to proceed the development fast. Actually one the core game stable, it’s very easy to deploy it to other platform such as mobile android and iOS.
It would be available on Mobile on Q2.
Q4. On your website you don’t mention that you have done any internal or external audit of your smart contract, so can you give us details if you have done any audit before? And in case you haven’t, would you plan to perform any review of your smart contract in the near future?
Huy Van: Yep, security is one of the things we focus and invested in a lot as we understand how important it is to NFT Game.
