    Some questions are transversal to the various main topics so they have been grouped under a topic that has been considered suitable but could also be read in reference to other topics.

    πŸ”· AMA's Questions and answers πŸ”·

    πŸ”Ή Masternodes / Primenodes / Pulsenodes related questionsπŸ”Ή

    Question:
    Thank you for availability in answering our questions and thanks to the Team for the work that is behind the scenes! I would like to ask a question: The tokenization of the "ownership" of the masternode of which you spoke in the previous AMA and which introduces something never heard before is a kind of NFT (non-fungible token)? So we will have a NFT framework in 3DCoin applicable then also to other things besides the ownership of masternodes?

    Answer:
    Yes, 3DCoin will have NFT built for Districts, also we are working on something new for the masternodes assets.
    We publish more details about it in the next whitepaper update.

    Question:
    Isn't the smart script like a smart contract in a different language than Solidity? Masternodes are like CryptoKitties or PokΓ©mon Go on 3DCoin?

    Answer:
    Each "smart script" can be described as a one-purpose contract. I hope that makes sense. Is build for contract only.

    Question:
    You mentioned in the previous AMA, that the collateral for the nodes, if the code is secure enough, might change to 0 - so everyone can set up a node. As the hardware requirements are probably a little higher than what we have now, what is the incentive to set up a node?
    In other words what incentive does a newcomer have to buy 25k 3DC and set up a node, when the requirements will get higher (higher VPS cost for the highest score aka blockreward) and the current nodecount - valuation stays the same aka you lose money or break even on the nodes.

    Answer:
    While the collateral exists only for security purposes, I think the incentive is the profit which linked to the 3DCoin price.

    Question:
    The Masternodes/Primenodes/Pulsenodes are getting a share on every Districts token which is validated through their nodes?

    Answer:
    Only the Pulsenode will collect transactions fees, the Primenode gets paid in 3DC for hosting the dapps and the fees are determined by the Primenodes owners.

    πŸ”Ή Development management / marketing / listings / exchanges related questionsπŸ”Ή

    Question:
    Can we excpect a listing on the exchanges mentioned in the Dev Update or do they really donΒ΄t want to list us until our Community grows?

    Answer:
    We will know soon.

    Question:
    Can the Trello public board be updated on a regular (monthly?) basis?

    Answer:
    Yes, every developer of the Team will update regularly his tasks on the 3DCoin public board on Trello
    You will notice the change soon.

    Note: The Trello 3DCoin public board is available at https://trello.com/b/6131axEu/3dcoin

    πŸ”ΉDistricts Virtual World / DVS / Dapps / Virtual Reality related questionsπŸ”Ή

    Question:
    Could you please tell us more about land in 3d world?

    Answer:
    In Districts the land token is only required when you are building a VR dapp, it can be generated by the DVS (Districts Visual Studio) or bought from another user.

    Question:
    Are the land token a known number? It will be like Decentraland (MANA erc-20 token) with an internal exchange?

    Answer:
    The world of Districts is scalable, limitless lands, the exchange is built in the 3DCoin blockchain.

    Question:
    Are developers able to build Dapps after the hardfork or is it the first of many upgrades until the functionality/sandbox is given to do so?

    Answer:
    The main features that will be introduced in the patch are SmartScript(API), Primenodes and our "Proof of Sync" consensus protocol upgrade.
    The Dapps will be available in a few upgrades in the 3DCoin blockchain.

    Question:
    With an inbuilt escrow function? E.g. masternode ownership part 1 in exchange, 100 3dc part 2?

    Answer:
    Yes, the "smart script" will make your life easier.

    Question:
    So, Districts is a sandbox field. Developers are able to build dapps which are visualized in this world?

    Answer:
    Districts is a procedurally generated world of dapps. Without the dapps Districts doesn't exist.

    Question:
    Do you have to claim land beforehand or do you get a parcel handed to you when you create a Districts token?

    Answer:
    You will get the space you need for dapps the second you create a new dapp, this space is not entirely yours, you are just tenant because if the dapp is inactive for a long time, space can be used by others.
    You still can transfer the ownership to others if the dapp is active.

    Question:
    In the end the enduser is able to opt-in via a VR headset into this "land" and the dapps are visualized? So if I'm a teacher, I can build e.g. a VR school, my students pay me in the specific Districts token for the lesson I teach them and they can participate via the VR headset?

    Answer:
    Yes, also he can reshape the world of Districts using dapps filters like games, business, etc.

    Question:
    In what timeframe are we talking here - until e.g. we can make the first tour and explore the 1st dapp via VR: 2-3 years?

    Answer:
    Maybe less, step by step, we wil get there!
