FAQ – Frequently asked Questions

The Daoverse is a huge project that will grow over time in every single aspect: Our blockchain and gameplay options are absolutely unlimited. As the DAO concept shows, great things can grow from collective communities like ours. We provided some answers to the most frequently asked questions for novices who would like to learn more about our ambitious project and the new world we are going to build:

What is DAOverse Games?

DAOverse Games is our game and blockchain development company. The founders, Patrick Schnelle from Germany and Shady Metwaly from Dubai, use their professional background in the blockchain world to create the most detailed 3D modeled NFTs on the current market.

In the DAOverse metaverse, users can immerse themselves in a vast digital universe filled with endless possibilities. As a citizen, you can create a unique avatar using our character creator tool and live out your virtual life in the bustling city of Teel. Explore public buildings, engage with shops and services, and participate in social activities. For those with a competitive spirit, you can become a champion by obtaining an NFT character and dive into various battlefields and games. Engage in trade, build or purchase virtual real estate, and even earn the Athem cryptocurrency through various activities. The metaverse also offers educational and entertainment venues, ensuring there’s something for everyone. Whether you’re looking to socialize, learn, compete, or simply explore, the DAOverse metaverse is your gateway to a new digital frontier.

What is a DAO?

DAOs are an effective and safe way to work with like-minded folks around the globe. The blockchain communities are best described as an online-based businesses, owned by a collective and managed by all the members of this collective.

Advantages of DAO businesses like ours in a nutshell:
  • Built-in treasuries that are inaccessible without the approval of the group ensure security for the shareholders.
  • Decisions are governed by proposals and voting to ensure everyone in the organization has a voice.
  • There’s no CEO who can authorize spending based on their own whims and no chance of a dodgy CFO manipulating the books.
  • The security of the open system is ensured by the code of the DAO, where the rules for spending are strictly defined.

Why do we see DAOs as the future of online businesses?

Starting an organization with someone that involves funding and money requires a lot of trust in the people you’re working with. But it’s hard to trust someone you’ve only ever interacted with on the internet. With DAOs you don’t need to trust anyone else in the group, just the DAO’s code, which is 100% transparent and verifiable by anyone. This opens up so many new opportunities for global collaboration and coordination.

What can service providers or merchants do in the metaverse and how can they join?

Service providers have a unique opportunity to expand their reach and tap into a new digital frontier within the DAOverse metaverse. They can set up virtual storefronts, offer digital goods and services, host events, or even establish educational institutions in the city of Teel. By integrating their services into the metaverse, providers can cater to a global audience, 24/7, and benefit from the metaverse’s native cryptocurrency, Athem, for transactions.

To join as a service provider, simply reach out to our DAOverse team through our official channels. We’ll guide you through the onboarding process, helping you establish your virtual presence and ensuring you’re equipped to make the most of the opportunities the metaverse offers. Whether you’re a retailer, educator, entertainer, or offer any other service, the DAOverse metaverse is an exciting space to grow and innovate.

We are a Gaming/VR/Metaverse studio and want to build our own game or service structure. Can we join the metaverse and how?

Absolutely! We welcome and encourage studios and developers with innovative ideas to join and contribute to the expansive ecosystem of our metaverse. To integrate your game or service structure, you’ll need to follow our partnership and integration guidelines. Start by reaching out to our collaboration team, who will guide you through the onboarding process, ensuring seamless integration and compatibility with our platform. It’s worth noting that we operate under a franchise model. This entails a modest monthly licensing fee and a percentage of the revenue generated. In return, you gain access to our extensive library of 3D and NFT assets, as well as a comprehensive financial and legal framework to streamline your operations. Together, we can create a richer, more diverse metaverse experience for all users.


A comparison: Dao vs. traditional organizations


  • Usually flat, and fully democratized.
  • Voting required by members for any changes to be implemented.
  • Votes tallied, and outcome implemented automatically without trusted intermediary.
  • Services offered are handled automatically in a decentralized manner (for example distribution of philanthropic funds).
  • All activity is transparent and fully public.

Traditional organizations

  • Usually hierarchical.
  • Depending on structure, changes can be demanded from a sole party, or voting may be offered.
  • If voting allowed, votes are tallied internally, and outcome of voting must be handled manually.
  • Requires human handling, or centrally controlled automation, prone to manipulation.
  • Activity is typically private.

Will DAOverse Games become a DAO?

No, DAOverse Games will remain as it was founded, a traditional joint stock company, serving as a development and publishing studio. While the structure of DAOverse Games will remain consistent, the metaverse project it oversees will evolve. Around 2025, with the launch of the governance token, the metaverse project will transition into a true DAO (Decentralized Autonomous Organization). At that point, DAOverse Games will give up the ownership to the DAO and transition its role to act as a service provider for the DAO, supporting its operations and initiatives.

What are the benefits for early supporters?

Our DAO world is based on a vivid community with equal decisional power for every participant. Naturally, we want to reward early supporters who contribute to the development of our DAOverse before the launch. As soon as you choose to participate, you will be able to share your imaginations with our team and to have a say in the next steps of our journey.

Your benefits for early NFT purchases

  • Learn about the class and the attributes of your unique NFT figure before the game lauches.
  • Save yourself a spot in the early releases. The Main Sale will be limited and may be hit by a bigger demand than the number of offered NFTs.
  • support our early development and watch the Daoverse grow day by day.
  • The Early NFT Holders will get a special Badge and ingame title for their profile to show their support in the early times. This Badge and title cannot be earned anywhere else in the metaverse and is limited to the presale via SEED Investor and Alpha Edition NFTs.
  • Participate in special votings for early supporters: Which subclasses do you desire the most? What should they look like? What do you expect in the world of Teel? It is your multiverse and your choice.

Can i get Access to the Metaverse without buying a NFT?

Absolutely! While owning an NFT provides unique benefits and experiences within the metaverse, we believe in inclusivity and ensuring that everyone has the opportunity to explore the city of Teel. Even if you don’t own an NFT, you can use our character creator tool to craft your own personalized citizen avatar. As a civilist citizen, you can live, interact, and immerse yourself in the daily life of the metaverse, exploring public areas, engaging in various activities, and being part of the vibrant community. Think of the NFT characters as the champions – they are the combatants who participate in various battlefields and games. But even without being a champion, there’s a whole world of experiences waiting for you in Teel.

As a citizen, you have the opportunity to accumulate Athem over time. While it might be a gradual journey, with patience, you can amass enough Athem to acquire your very own champion NFT.

What can I do with my NFT?

The unique nature of your NFT determines the value of the digital good. Within the game, every subclass can be further individualized and equipped with a home, a personal story and better skills. You can always trade your NFT on the NFT marketplace that is accessible via Browser and later with in-game connection. Moreover, your avatar can be used in every DAOverse-connected social media platform. Over time, you will discover the fantastic RPG world we are creating right now through the eyes of your NFT, making a deep connection to your figure and the astonishing world they are part of.

What is the basic story for the RPG?

The narrative of the DAOverse starts on the peninsula of Teel, where undying Juru people and mortal Settlers have just begun to understand the power of the Athem. This natural force of life and movement is used to breathe life into machines and to manipulate the powers of nature for a better living in Teel – though the opinions are divided when it comes to the building of Sun Two, the flying city, or the fighting pits in the center of the capital.

You are drawn to this world by coincidence, since the exploitation of the Athem implied the frequent appearance of interdimensional Rifts – not to no avail, as you learn when you are given your first charmstone to farm the resource. Go out, gather this mysterious entity of power from other Arrivals or by discovering the secrets of the land, and choose your position in this fantastic new world that could become whatever you want it to be.

How many NFT classes are available at lauch?

We are currently working on 20 classes with 12 subclasses each, which makes a wide range of 240 different subclasses you can get from your blindbox. However, the story and the technological system behind our NFT creation allow for even more NFT models to come in the future, since characters from every dimension and every universe could possibly become Arrivals at some point.

What is the 16 Personalities Test?

Whenever you obtain a new NFT, you get the chance to complete a personality test for your new avatar. Feel free to answer the questions to your personal satisfaction or in character for the subclass you got. The results of the test determine the Rift your character is drawn to (the point where your character starts) – if your NFT is welcome there or not, depends on their inherent nature and the paths you choose in dialogues and quests.

You can already take the test for fun here. Share your results and thoughts with our community, if you like!

How to become an Investor in the Pre Seed or SEED Phase

To become an investor during our pre-seed and seed phases, simply visit our Linktree.

There, you’ll find detailed information about the investment process, our pitch deck, and the various payment methods available. After reviewing the details, you can choose your preferred investment amount and method. Once your investment is processed, you’ll receive a confirmation and further instructions. We recommend reaching out to our team directly through the provided contact channels if you have any specific questions or need assistance.


Can i become an investor after the Seed Phase finished?

It depends. Since we won’t issue new shares between investor rounds, we can’t directly offer new shares to new investors. You’ll either need to wait for the next investor round, ICO, or IPO. Alternatively, if a current investor is willing to sell some of their shares, we might facilitate that transaction. If you’re keen on acquiring shares, please reach out to us, and we may be able to connect you with a potential seller.

When will the Athem ICO take place?

The Athem ICO is scheduled to commence in 2024. Specific dates and details will be announced on our official channels and website. We recommend staying updated by subscribing to our newsletter or following our social media platforms for the latest information.

Which blockchain will be used?

The specific blockchain for the DAOverse platform has not yet been determined as we are still in active negotiations. However, our aim is to select a blockchain that is organized as parachain and is Compatible to Cosmos and EVM (Ethereum Virtual Machine). This will ensure that we have the best possible connectivity and scalability currently available in the market. By adopting such a structure, we aim to provide users with a seamless experience across the DAOverse metaverse, while also ensuring fast transaction times and reduced fees.
