Earlier this week, the Bitsquad interviewed Big Time, potentially one of the biggest blockchain-based games of 2022. Big Time is the world’s first AAA+ developed RPG game with NFT and blockchain integration. The game’s story revolves around time traveling throughout history and fighting various different enemies according to Crypto Han the community lead for Big Time.

It’s important to highlight that Crypto Hansolo told this interviewer that Big Time will be free to play and assured that it won’t be a pay-to-play title. Big Time is being led by Ari Meilich former CEO and co-founder of the massively popular metaverse Decentraland. Besides Ari, the Big Time team is stacked with talented industry professionals including β€”Thor Alexander Chief Product Officer who pioneered MMOs at EA and helped scale Zynga, Matt Tonks as CTO who has worked on massive game series like Fortnite, Gears of War, Medal of Honor at Epic, and EA. That’s only naming a few industry titans but see for yourself and view their entire talented team here.

Big Time launched its land sale the day after our AMA which sold out within a short period of time according to the project’s Twitter. Bitboy Crypto invested heavily in the land sale and Big Time will undoubtedly be one of the games we feature next year across our channel and sister channels New Money Gang and NFT Update. We are all very excited about this game due to the talent that has worked on games such as Fort Nite one of the world’s most popular video games and the game’s proposed mechanics.

As Ben Armstrong founder of Bitboy Crypto has said blockchain gaming and the metaverse is going to be the next big thing. We have our piece of the pie. Do you?

But that’s my thoughts, do your own research and come to your own conclusions, I have come to mine!

Check out our full interview with Big Time community leader Crypto Hansolo below!

Welcome, everyone to Bitsquad AMAs I am your host JustAC4t. Today, we have a real treat with @cryptohansolo from the MASSIVE upcoming game Big Time. Please introduce yourself and your project for those that are unaware.

Crypto Han, [12/20/21 2:19 PM]
Hello hello! Glad to be here today! I am CryptoHan. Currently, the community lead for Big Time Studios. Big Time is the first AAA fast-action RPG game with NFTs and other crypto assets. It is also a free-to-play game so that everyone can play the game without prior investments!

The game looks incredible for those that haven’t seen the trailer. But before we get into that. Can you tell us a bit about your background and your team’s background?

Crypto Han, [12/20/21 2:24 PM]
Yea, of course! I am part of the early adopter for BAYC and have been in the crypto space since 2018. Our team is like a dream team for most crypto games out there. We’re lucky to have been joined by some of the best developers in the world.

We have Ari, our CEO, who founded DCL.

We have Thor, our Chief Product Officer who pioneered MMOs at EA and helped scale Zynga from a tiny startup to the largest IPO since Google, while scaling a portfolio of games to over 20MM MAUs.

Matt, our CTO who has worked on some huge games like Fortnite, Gears of War, Medal of Honor at Epic, and EA.

And other notable talented game industry veterans that are in our team.

Impressive team indeed which attracted me to the project.

The Cat 🐯 Head Admin Of Bitsquad Check The @ (DON’T SEND CRYPTO) o7, [12/20/21 2:26 PM]
[In reply to Crypto Han]
One of the first AAA+ games that I THINK will be live on the market.

The Cat 🐯 Head Admin Of Bitsquad Check The @ (DON’T SEND CRYPTO) o7, [12/20/21 2:26 PM]
So when do you guys plan to release the game?

Crypto Han, [12/20/21 2:27 PM]
Yea, so we are aiming to have our Early Access around early April so that people with the VIP passes can access the game before it is fully launched.

The Cat 🐯 Head Admin Of Bitsquad Check The @ (DON’T SEND CRYPTO) o7, [12/20/21 2:30 PM]
[In reply to Crypto Han]
Sounds great tbh and again to highlight this is from Ari who founded Decentraland.

The Cat 🐯 Head Admin Of Bitsquad Check The @ (DON’T SEND CRYPTO) o7, [12/20/21 2:30 PM]
So why did Ari decide to leave Decentraland and found Big Time?

Crypto Han, [12/20/21 2:33 PM]
That is a great question! Building Decentraland was an incredible experience. They turned the project into a venture back in 2017, when there were no other blockchain games around. However, Decentraland was built with crypto people in mind, so you needed prior crypto knowledge.

Crypto Han, [12/20/21 2:34 PM]
At Big Time, we have a AAA team and are building a game that will appeal to hundreds of millions. To get there, we have carefully thought through the kind of experience that we wanted to give players: that is, one where they cannot really tell the difference between a blockchain game and a traditional one.

The Cat 🐯 Head Admin Of Bitsquad Check The @ (DON’T SEND CRYPTO) o7, [12/20/21 2:35 PM]
[In reply to Crypto Han]
Very true that DCL was built with crypto people in mind rather than the average gamer. So how will Big Time do things different?

Crypto Han, [12/20/21 2:37 PM]
Right, for us, our goal is to make sure that traditional players can play the game without any prior crypto knowledge. But, to do so, we need to make sure we are making the game fun!

Crypto Han, [12/20/21 2:39 PM]
Like I have mentioned above, our team is consists of many different talented video game industry veterans. They use their knowledge to help create a fun game for every gamer. So while they are playing the game, they can own their NFTs and learn more about blockchain knowledge.

The Cat 🐯 Head Admin Of Bitsquad Check The @ (DON’T SEND CRYPTO) o7, [12/20/21 2:39 PM]
[In reply to Crypto Han]
What is the game about?

The Cat 🐯 Head Admin Of Bitsquad Check The @ (DON’T SEND CRYPTO) o7, [12/20/21 2:41 PM]
[In reply to Crypto Han]
Yes this is key too in fact. This is why most crypto games will fail.

The Cat 🐯 Head Admin Of Bitsquad Check The @ (DON’T SEND CRYPTO) o7, [12/20/21 2:44 PM]
[In reply to Crypto Han]
I am very interested in the game mechanics and how all this is going to work to be honest.

The Cat 🐯 Head Admin Of Bitsquad Check The @ (DON’T SEND CRYPTO) o7, [12/20/21 2:44 PM]
Are the NFTs pay to play or how is it structured?

The Cat 🐯 Head Admin Of Bitsquad Check The @ (DON’T SEND CRYPTO) o7, [12/20/21 2:44 PM]
Because I feel if its pay to play it could be an issue.

Crypto Han, [12/20/21 2:45 PM]
The player is a time traveler at the end of the universe where the player will be helping the historical figures such as Albert Einstein to save the time. The time is being controlled by this big bad cooperation. The player will encounter different missions and monsters through out this universe. They will have the ability to earn NFTs from the loots.

Crypto Han, [12/20/21 2:45 PM]
Big Time is a free to play game! πŸ™‚

Crypto Han, [12/20/21 2:45 PM]
Like I said before it is for everyone in the world to join us!

The Cat 🐯 Head Admin Of Bitsquad Check The @ (DON’T SEND CRYPTO) o7, [12/20/21 2:46 PM]
So does buying the NFTs give users a upper hand in the game or how does that work?

The Cat 🐯 Head Admin Of Bitsquad Check The @ (DON’T SEND CRYPTO) o7, [12/20/21 2:47 PM]
[In reply to Crypto Han]
I love this story btw.

Crypto Han, [12/20/21 2:47 PM]
No, it won’t give you any stats boost. It is only a cosmetic NFT. But, you can make yourself look cooler!

The Cat 🐯 Head Admin Of Bitsquad Check The @ (DON’T SEND CRYPTO) o7, [12/20/21 2:47 PM]
[In reply to Crypto Han]
This sounds so awesome and I love seeing that T-rex in the middle of a Western Town.

Crypto Han, [12/20/21 2:48 PM]
Haha that is one of the core missions the players will have when the game is out.

The Cat 🐯 Head Admin Of Bitsquad Check The @ (DON’T SEND CRYPTO) o7, [12/20/21 2:49 PM]
[In reply to Crypto Han]
I can’t wait to be honest.

Crypto Han, [12/20/21 2:50 PM]
I can’t wait either XD

The Cat 🐯 Head Admin Of Bitsquad Check The @ (DON’T SEND CRYPTO) o7, [12/20/21 2:50 PM]
So there’s land in Big Time, how does this tie into the game?

The Cat 🐯 Head Admin Of Bitsquad Check The @ (DON’T SEND CRYPTO) o7, [12/20/21 2:51 PM]
Oh and disclosure i invested in the land because I love this game.

The Cat 🐯 Head Admin Of Bitsquad Check The @ (DON’T SEND CRYPTO) o7, [12/20/21 2:51 PM]

Crypto Han, [12/20/21 2:51 PM]

Crypto Han, [12/20/21 2:53 PM]
SPACE NFT is the name for our virtual estate. It will help you to expand your Time Machine in the game. The Time Machine is like your personal metaverse where you can store your in-game items like trophies, loots and other decorations.

The Cat 🐯 Head Admin Of Bitsquad Check The @ (DON’T SEND CRYPTO) o7, [12/20/21 2:53 PM]
oh that sound sick.

Crypto Han, [12/20/21 2:55 PM]
Once you use your SPACE NFT to expand your Time Machine, you are able to have more advanced features like Time Keepers, Hourglass NFTs, Forge and other unities add-on in the future.

The Cat 🐯 Head Admin Of Bitsquad Check The @ (DON’T SEND CRYPTO) o7, [12/20/21 2:55 PM]
So ill be able to use my land to store my items I collect in the universe?

The Cat 🐯 Head Admin Of Bitsquad Check The @ (DON’T SEND CRYPTO) o7, [12/20/21 2:55 PM]
Will i also be able to sell them on third-party market?

Crypto Han, [12/20/21 2:55 PM]
Yes, you can think of it like that.

Crypto Han, [12/20/21 2:55 PM]
And yes! You can definitely do that!

The Cat 🐯 Head Admin Of Bitsquad Check The @ (DON’T SEND CRYPTO) o7, [12/20/21 2:56 PM]
Awesome man this sounds great!

The Cat 🐯 Head Admin Of Bitsquad Check The @ (DON’T SEND CRYPTO) o7, [12/20/21 2:57 PM]
[In reply to Crypto Han]
What is the Time Keepers and Hourglass?

Crypto Han, [12/20/21 2:57 PM]
For those who do not know, Time Keepers are the NPCs in-game. They can help you to craft special items such as Hourglass NFTs. This will allow you to earn token in-game!

Crypto Han, [12/20/21 2:57 PM]
Haha you read my mind, I was literally typing it up for the audiences πŸ™‚

The Cat 🐯 Head Admin Of Bitsquad Check The @ (DON’T SEND CRYPTO) o7, [12/20/21 2:58 PM]

The Cat 🐯 Head Admin Of Bitsquad Check The @ (DON’T SEND CRYPTO) o7, [12/20/21 3:01 PM]
So how will guilds fit into this? As I mentioned in private we have many guilds we are helping build which we will connect to you.

The Cat 🐯 Head Admin Of Bitsquad Check The @ (DON’T SEND CRYPTO) o7, [12/20/21 3:02 PM]

After this absolutely

Crypto Han, [12/20/21 3:05 PM]
Yea, we get this question a lot because we are supported by many guilds in the early stage. Their community helped us grow tremendously. We have worked with them closely to ensure that guild features will be implemented in our game in the future. For example, how do I manage my scholars if I can lend a SPACE out to them? These are the questions that we are constantly discussing to make sure everyone can benefit from owning a SPACE.

The Cat 🐯 Head Admin Of Bitsquad Check The @ (DON’T SEND CRYPTO) o7, [12/20/21 3:07 PM]
[In reply to Crypto Han]
Yes I was going to ask this for the guilds too to be honest. Once again reading minds.

So what is your guy’s vision of the metaverse with Big TIme?

The Cat 🐯 Head Admin Of Bitsquad Check The @ (DON’T SEND CRYPTO) o7, [12/20/21 3:09 PM]
We are nearing an hour for this AMA. But before I wrap this up after you answer that question I have a few more questions for you in regards to the token and infrastructure that Big Time is built on. πŸ˜‰

The Cat 🐯 Head Admin Of Bitsquad Check The @ (DON’T SEND CRYPTO) o7, [12/20/21 3:10 PM]
Then I will open the floodgates and let the audience ask questions!

Crypto Han, [12/20/21 3:11 PM]
You see, we are constantly working on this motto – Game first, NFT/Crypto Second. This has not changed any bit. We want to make sure that the traditional players can enter the crypto world without any fear of the technology! Also, we are looking to lend out our Vault technology to other gaming companies in the future. So that we can all be building this platform better and more accessible access for different types of gamers.

Crypto Han, [12/20/21 3:12 PM]
I bet you are going to ask me what is vault technology XD

The Cat 🐯 Head Admin Of Bitsquad Check The @ (DON’T SEND CRYPTO) o7, [12/20/21 3:12 PM]
[In reply to Crypto Han]
Interesting and that leads us into the infrastructure question too. So what is Vault? What type of blockchain is Big Time built on?

The Cat 🐯 Head Admin Of Bitsquad Check The @ (DON’T SEND CRYPTO) o7, [12/20/21 3:12 PM]
Will we have to worry about ETH gas fees?

Maybe an NFT

Crypto Han, [12/20/21 3:14 PM]
Big Time’s patented Vault technology, meaning that it will not be on-chain until you decide to withdraw it. The Vault was first built for Ethereum, with plans in the future to become chain agnostic.

As you can see in our marketplace right now, when you purchase any VIP passes, you will not need to use any gas fee! ZERO GAS FEE!

The Cat 🐯 Head Admin Of Bitsquad Check The @ (DON’T SEND CRYPTO) o7, [12/20/21 3:17 PM]
What are the tokenomics for the token in Big Time?

The Cat 🐯 Head Admin Of Bitsquad Check The @ (DON’T SEND CRYPTO) o7, [12/20/21 3:17 PM]
I know that you can only earn it in game, but what else do we need to know about it?

The Cat 🐯 Head Admin Of Bitsquad Check The @ (DON’T SEND CRYPTO) o7, [12/20/21 3:19 PM]
Hmmmm.. like how do you earn it? Can it only be earned by having a Time Machine and Space NFT?

Crypto Han, [12/20/21 3:19 PM]
[In reply to The Cat 🐯 Head Admin Of Bitsquad Check The @ (DON’T SEND CRYPTO) o7]
Exactly! That is the art of this tech. They don’t have to worry about any of that fee at all! It is like going to a CS go marketplace and buy the skin that you will never really own. But at Big Time, it is all yours!

The Cat 🐯 Head Admin Of Bitsquad Check The @ (DON’T SEND CRYPTO) o7, [12/20/21 3:19 PM]
Or are there other ways?

You can use them for special dungeons that give you exclusive NFTs if you beat it.

Crypto Han, [12/20/21 3:20 PM]

Our team does not even have any tokens… so sadly no airdrops πŸ™

The Cat 🐯 Head Admin Of Bitsquad Check The @ (DON’T SEND CRYPTO) o7, [12/20/21 3:21 PM]
