7 min readJan 4, 2022

Right before the Islander x Avalaunch.app IDE opening, we have hosted an AMA (Ask Me Anything) session to guide our supporters through the registration procedure.

At the moment, 25.000+ registers have participated in the IDE, and 21 hours till IDE closing.

Let’s check our AMA recap out!

Q1: How many ISA will be distributed on this IDE?

First of all, I am really happy to be here helping you — our supporters at the beginning of 2022, and right before the Islander IDE registration opening on Avalaunch.app

Let me summarize the Islander x Avalaunch IDE plan so you can overview what will happen for the next 3 days:

IDE (Initial Distribution Event) Recap:

  • Total ISA: 200M ISA
  • 100% of the sale will go to the community stakers of XAVA.
  • Price: 0.0015
  • Size: $300,000
  • Vesting — 50% Unlocked at TGE, weekly for 4 weeks
  • Additional $XAVA will also be airdrop to participants of the IDE

Q2: When will the IDE start & end? And when can I claim my ISA from the IDE?

The Registration opening will happen shortly after this AMA, but think it will be better for our supporters across time zones with a little bit of detail:

Q3: What is the best practice to join the IDE?

This is the most Frequently Asked Question that we received. Our instruction might not be able to apply to every situation, but this will be the best practice that we would suggest our supporters do:

Step 1: Create an account on Avalaunch

Step 2: Submit a KYC on Avalaunch, which will require you some information about yourself, your portrait, and photos of your identification documents.

Step 3: Connect your AVAX C-chain wallet to Avalaunch.app

The first 3 steps are described here in our instruction article: https://islander-io.medium.com/islander-x-avalaunch-ide-instructions-14ddf4e3d362

Step 4: Add ISA contract to your Metamask:

Step 5: Deposit 1 AVAX to participate in the IDE

Step 6: Stake XAVA to get more ISA allocation. In short, the more you stake, the better.

Q4: Is it true that I will receive ISA for free if I can successfully participate in the IDE?

Yes, it is. In short, instead of doing a normal IDO, the Avalaunch team has purchased 300.000$ worth of ISA for public sale and planned to distribute it to the Avalanche and Avalaunch supporters. With additional XAVA airdrop!!!

It is a really nice gesture from the team, which shows to the Crypto World that Islander is a really potential project and has earned trust from Avalaunch.

In other words, Islander x Avalaunch IDE (Initial Distribution Event) is the first of its kind!

The Islander public sale has been purchased by Avalaunch and will be distributed at no cost to Avalaunch’s devoted community through the IDE (Initial Distribution Event). The IDE will operate similarly to an IDO, minus any costs to the participant.

In addition to the Islander allocation, Avalaunch will be adding $300,000 worth of XAVA to the IDE, bringing the total up to $600,000 of pooled assets.

Amazing right?

Q5: When can I claim my ISA from the IDE? Is there anything I should know about it?

I think I should mention the Claiming Schedule once again here:

Claiming Goes Live: January 7th, 6:00 a.m. (UTC)

🇺🇸 USA: 23:00 pm (Washington Time) January 6th (EST)

🇹🇷 Turkey: at 9:00 am (UTC+3)

🇮🇳 India: at 11:30 am (IST)

🇻🇳 Vietnam: at 13:00 pm (UTC+7)

🇮🇩 Indonesia: at 13:00 pm (Jakarta Time) (UTC+7)

🇰🇷 Korea: at 15:00 pm (UTC+9)

🇷🇺 Russia: at 9:00 am Moscow time (UTC+3)

The reward will be able at: https://launchpad.avalaunch.app/airdrops

And the Vesting will be 50% at TGE, with 12.5% unlock weekly for 4 weeks.

Cheers!

Q6: Do you think that people will just dump all their $Isa received at the IDE on Avalaunch just for short-term profit, and cause a panic sell scenario? If that happens, what will the team do to maintain the confidence of investors and the brand image of Islander?

This one is a really thoughtful question! Thank you for raising your concern.

There will surely be participants who take short-term profit in every IDO, but we are confident that we have been working closely with Avalaunch and other partners to prepare for the scenario you mentioned.

Your concern is really on point. However, please check our unlock token at the TGE stat above. Unlike the common situation where projects have to solve the conflict between backers and supporters, Islander believes in giving prospects for both by growing the community with ISA distributed carefully.

After analyzing the situation, we realized that the chance is low, especially when we have our Main net event coming, which is considered a great leap in our product development and will positively affect the market. This scenario is also included in our Market Making plan, which covered such situations and also how the market condition will be.

Besides, it is Avalaunch we are talking about. Avalaunch has always been one of the best launchpads, and for a long time, the Avalaunch Community has been informed and familiar with our Islander project.

Please take a look at our Token metrics and Vesting plan for further details:

Vesting Following TGE:

  • Ecosystem: 30-day cliff, monthly vesting for 60 months
  • Islander Testnet Aidrop: 10 days after TGE, 100% unlock
  • Staking Rewards: 30-day cliff, monthly vesting for 40 months
  • Team and Advisory: 12-month cliff, monthly vesting for 20 months
  • Marketing and Partnerships: 3% at TGE, monthly for 32 months
  • Liquidity Provision: Discretionary Unlock*
  • Private Sale: 10% at TGE, 60-day cliff, monthly for 18 months
  • Seed: 5% at TGE, 3 month-cliff, 24 months vesting
  • Content Creators: 3% at TGE, monthly for 32 months
  • Avalaunch IDO: 50% Unlocked at TGE, weekly for 4 weeks

Q7: I’m looking forward to the game, but I’m wondering how the game will progress in terms of being played without getting bored and in terms of continuity. What plan do you have to achieve this?

Thank you for your question. However, Islander is not a game like other GameFi projects.

At its core, Islander is a decentralized affiliate marketing program powered by NFTs and intends to revolutionize the legacy model through its learn-to-earn mechanics.

Central to this proposition is the native token Islander (“ISA”), which serves multiple purposes:

  • To help projects discover, grow and maintain an audience of bonafide supporters
  • Allow key opinion leaders the opportunity to leverage their combined marketing power and earn
  • Create earning opportunities for content creators

Additionally:

  • Islander provides an intuitive toolkit for users to manage their various projects.
  • Full support for developers
  • Wallets, plugins, management apps
  • Payment gateway platform

In short: No, we are not making games. We are making Marketing and Investing a game, by applying Gamification theories and using the power of smart contracts.
