Great, the AMA will be happening as follows:

Part 3: Questions In Free Asking
ONESHOT: Hello everyone, we’re now getting ready to have our AMA with Sports Icon today. The chat will be muted during the AMA and you’ll be able to talk again once it’s finished.
Start Part 1.
ONESHOT: Can you please introduce yourselves and your background, also introduce the team working on SportsIcon?
SPORTS ICON: I am Andrew Fennell the BDM of SportsIcon, i have over 12 years of experience in sales, BDM, marketing in various different sectors from logistics through to fitness. I came into crypto in 2017 and have been helping several projects since
SportsIcon is founded by Chris Worsey and Alexi Yovanoff, Chris has founded and exited two tech business start ups and Alexi is a top FIFA match agent. Riku Sarkinen is our lead developer and Micky Irons is our CMO
ONESHOT: Can you briefly describe the top milestones you have achieved and your target milestones with timelines, also share your roadmap?
SPORTS ICON: yeah i would say our top milestone to date would be the release of our Lion Club NFTs on Opensea, 9000 lions sold out in 8 HOURS!!!
our whitepaper has undergone a last minute update and that will include the roadmap in it, but some important dates to note for now are our IDO on the 24th and our listing on the 25th our NFT marketplace should be out by Christmas and our Romelu Lukaku drop should be done by years end.
ONESHOT: Can you briefly describe your PARTNERSHIPS so far? Where can we access full details of partners?
SPORTS ICON: we have many partners already in our short time, and are backed by some of the biggest names in crypto Dapper Labs and AU21 Capital, Vinny Lingham, Elefund, Vendetta capital, Sunny Madra and loads more, we succesfully closed our seed round with a whopping 5.5M
ONESHOT: If I am not a Lion Club NFT holder and made the whitelist before cutoff, What I need to do if I want to join the IDO ?
SPORTS ICON: well firstly, you are crazy to not become a Lion Club NFT holder and member, so please buy one asap! hehe
so if you made the whitelist before cutoff then it will depend which launchpad you chose to participate on
we are launching on trustpad and moonstarter, with a 3rd pad yet to be revealed
you will need to buy and stake the chosen launchpads token to get a tier level, or you can take your chances and not buy any tokens and hope to get a spot in the public whitelist.
ONESHOT: Most NFT projects issues their protocols and NFT products under conventional blockchains like BSC, Solana and Polygon (MATIC). However, SportsIcon is deployed under the Flow blockchain. Why did you decide to go live on Flow rather than the mentioned blockchains above?
SPORTS ICON: thats a good question as there are so many great options these days in crypto, but i think when it comes to a blockchain for NFTs and sporting, you really cannot go past Flow, i mean just look at the success of NBA topshots.
Flow blockchain is user friendly and made for extensive scaling and provides fast and low cost transactions
Ideal for DAPPS like NFT marketplaces and metaverses
Flow is purpose built for NFTs and is without question the most comprehensible solution for the SportsIcon ecosystem. We are also backed by Dapper Labs, so this should give an indication of the size our project is going to be!
ONESHOT: Thanks for the compliment, sir
ONESHOT: End of Part 1.
Let’s go to part 2.
Part 2 : 10 Question from Twitter
ONESHOT: SportsIcon works with a number of athletes to offer NFT, I see most of your icons and investors are legends, do you not want to add a star icon that is now shining like Ronaldo or Messi for example? from @SyminuL
SPORTS ICON: yes we have some big investors and icons already, like Romelu Lukaku who is the most expensive soccer player of all time, but of course we would love to have the likes of Messi and Ronaldo, we have another very HUGE name, arguably one of the most well known sporting icons in the world ever onboard that we will release soon !
ONESHOT: Question 2 from @SyminuL :
“Sports Icon is different because we invest in the content” Who is responsible for creating the content of the NFTs? What type of professionals do you look for to hire for this task?
SPORTS ICON: yes we invest in high quality cinematically filmed content for our NFTs and one of our directors is from Top Gear, which i am sure many of you wouldn be famililar with 😏 SportsIcon sources the most qualified and high calibre professionals to be part of the team, just like our Sports Icons themselves, best in their field!
ONESHOT: Question 3 from @BENSTOCK26:
Partnership is always an important factor for every project. So who is SportsIcon partner? What are the benefits you get from those relationships?
SPORTS ICON: we have many partners already as i mentioned earlier like Dapper Labs, AU21 capital and loads loads more that bring connections with CEX’s, KOL’s and other projects and resources to develop our projects and be the best in the space, we have been selective in our project partners and have some amazing collaborations to announce in the coming weeks, there will be giveaways, joint marketing campaigns and some very very exciting developments !
ONESHOT: Question 4 from @SLiomie
What do you think will affect the value of $ICONs? And tell us about the great things that $ICONS will bring in the long term?
SPORTS ICON: Like any succesful project, you need a solid community and for them to have reasons to HODL
This is something we already have in our short time and focus on growing. We give utility to our NFTs, just as we will with our token $ICONS. These are a couple of the benefits of our token in our ecosystem and as we grow more will be added.
- Buy NFT’s for a discount on the SportsIcon website
- Queue jump for Icons holders
- Buy athletes creator coins
- Participate in a liquidity pool
- Access exclusive Telegram groups through our community membership program
- Access exclusive content
- Take part in SportsIcon ecosystem governance by voting on proposals with ICONS.
ONESHOT: Question5 from @KiyokoSumaru
Is sport icon only limited to NFTs based on sports entertainment, are there any plans for Sport Icon to build a NFT market Place in the future?
SPORTS ICON: as our name would suggest we are only based on Sports Icons, we believe in bringing ownership to the fans of their favorite sporting heroes, now you can own a piece of their journey through SportsIcon ! We aim to release our NFT marketplace by Christmas !
ONESHOT: Question 6 from @tieubinh2003
According to your tokenomics, there is currently a total of 9000 Lions at 0.04 ETH, could you tell us what benefits will it give users to have one or more of these NFTs? How many are currently available and how can we buy them?
SPORTS ICON: I wouldn’t call that our tokenomics, but yes we successfully sold our 9000 lion club NFTs in only 8 hours, you can find all the info here https://lionclub.sportsicon.com/
Lion club members get awesome benefits and perks, like free sporting event tickets, zoom calls with top athletes, NFT airdrops, $ICONS airdrops and much much more.
ONESHOT: Question 7 from @AnhPhng63458160
Can you indicate a feature or features that you like best about the platform so that it can compete with other competitors? What are you most confident about for your platform? Do you have plans to get users to choose your platform?
SPORTS ICON: Well my most loved feature personally is the Lion Club, i think its awesome and has given real world utility to NFTs the second would be the cinematically filmed content with the worlds top sporting icons, giving people ownership to their icons journey.
Our NFT marketplace will be the go to for best sports NFTs in the space and by having the best athletes in the world, we will become the go to platform.
ONESHOT: Question 8 from @hyy3004
SportsIcon will create an unprecedented opportunity for fans to own a piece of sports and cultural history. What is this Mike Vick x SportsIcon drop? Why were they inspired by Mike Vick, if there are other star soccer players in the world? Will they include other sports stars?
SPORTS ICON: Mike Vick is a true NFL legend who revolutionized the Quarterback position, broke barriers and records, like career rushing yards by a QB (6,109). Not sure why they thought he was a soccer player lol. We will include sports stars from all genres of sports like, soccer, NFL, cricket, boxing, mma, etc
ONESHOT: Question 9 from @JohnWic052
SportsIcon promotes the accomplishments of Mike Vick. What are your strategies for attracting millions of users who admire other soccer players to the metaverse? How profitable is it for the metaverse to focus on Mike Vick?
SPORTS ICON: We will not only partner with SportsIcon but also Sports Clubs like Pumas https://app.sportsicon.com/
Mike Vick is just the start, wait till you see what other Icons and sporting teams will be joining out platform and NFT drops!
ONESHOT: Question 10 from @LeThanhLy5
How does SportIcon selects a certain moment in sports and athlete to be featured on its NFTs? Are the decisions based entirely from the team of SportIcon itself or do you consider the opinion/suggestions of your community?
SPORTS ICON: It’s a collaborative process between spoetsicon and the athlete to come up with the best moments in their career.
We are always open to suggestions and feedback from our community. They helped decide our logo, just like they will help shape the future of sportsicon and vote on proposals.
