AMA about Ompx.io - The digital space owned by everyone

Gen4
Apr 14, 2018

We've just launched new crypto app/game - OneMillionPixels

OMPx.io is meant to be a shared creative, marketing and investment place – all at once. (Actually, for a digital canvas 1000x1000 pixels it’s rather bold, but we’ll manage :)

So how does it work? Just place your art or promo on the canvas and invite people to marvel at it. As others join to do the same, the canvas and your art on it gets more and more attention. But there is more: every time somebody purchases OMPx tokens to draw - you earn!

How does OMPx.io use blockchain and what value does it bring to your product?

What are the biggest factors that will bring success to OMPx.io?
Apr 20, 12:00PM EDT1

The biggest one is people behavior. If everyone will spread the word – OMPx becomes popular and everyone wins.

Apr 20, 12:05PM EDT0
Which projects are you currently involved in? What do you find fascinating about them?
Apr 19, 10:17PM EDT0
What is OMPx's long-term goal and what’s in the pipeline?
Apr 19, 7:40PM EDT1

As far as it is an experiment we have no super-solid roadmap, let's see how it goes, but

The first goals are to make UI/UX better and add some features and spread the word about the project.

Global goal is to learn people behave in such (new kind of) systems and commercial profit.

Can you walk us through the critical components of your business and how it will work?
Apr 19, 6:15PM EDT1

Sure 

The main idea is to create a place, where all participants will be motivated to contribute those resources to reach synergetics effect. win-win-win situation.

All gain from token purchases goes to the smart-contract to be distributed between token holders.

This leads to an involving system where every user, for his own reasons, is interested in the mass spreading of the game: those who put his link to the canvas hope for the widening of the audience, and those holding the tokens as an investment count on the token growth following the increase in demand.

I get just a service fee (transaction fee) while someone buys a token.

Apr 19, 6:27PM EDT0
What’s your advice to other Bitcoin businesses who are just starting out?
Apr 19, 3:08AM EDT0

Think twice about markiting as far as audience is quite limited.

Apr 19, 3:59AM EDT0
Why did you start OMPx.io, what problem did you set out to solve?
Apr 19, 1:29AM EDT1

It was made up as a social experiment. Blockchain gives us a lot of new opportunities, and one of them and I believe, most important, is an ability to own something valuable and complex with other random people together.

It is amazing, actually.  A new way to own and control of companies, groups of people or countries. 

Ompx is model of such situation: we have a resource, which could be used by anyone or for his marketing actions – user could place an art with a link, or for as investment – user could buy some tokens and help to make resource more popular, so token will grow and he could sell it more expensive. 

So we have the situation where all participants have the same target - make the resource more popular and everyone wins.

But could people understand and organize themselves? Let's see...

Apr 19, 2:38AM EDT0
What's in the future for the OMPx team? Have you decided on what sort of game you'll be working on next?
Apr 18, 5:15AM EDT0

There are a few ideas now and we are researching and testing it, so stay tuned!

If you have some ideas though, feel free to write us

Apr 18, 5:16AM EDT0
What will happen when the digital canvas is full and there are no more available pixels?
Apr 16, 7:11PM EDT0

Each pixel could be repainted, so the system is designed as "endless"

Apr 16, 7:23PM EDT0
What software/program is required to use OMPx.io?
Apr 15, 12:49PM EDT0

Chrome browser and MetaMask Wallet

Apr 15, 1:01PM EDT0
What is the competition like in your field? How do you stay on top of your game?
Apr 14, 11:00PM EDT1

The top list is a list of URLs sorted by the amount of owned pixels on canvas at the moment. The more pixels you own - the higher you are. 

Rollover mouse over a link and see all pixels of the URL highlighted

Apr 15, 5:52AM EDT0
How does one buy tokens to play the game? Do they pay using credit cards?
Apr 14, 3:43PM EDT1

You can buy tokens for ETH (Ethereum token). To do that you should have MetaMask installed (it is a wallet in a browser) and has some ETH on an account or buy some.

More details instructions are in our FAQ or MetaMask Video

Apr 15, 5:55AM EDT0
Can one use tokens earned OMPx to buy things online and use as real money?
Apr 14, 12:50PM EDT1

Not directly but after selling for ETHs - yes.

Apr 15, 5:56AM EDT0
Why do you think people should log in and play OMPx?
Apr 14, 11:43AM EDT1

This is a story about 3 layers I posted twice before, but let me post it here as well :)

There are three layers here:

- Creative playground. Have fun, make an art and get attention and interact with other players.

- Advertising space. Attach an URL to each pixel — every visitor will notice your website. Also, there is the top-list of URLs sorted by owning pixels.

- Investment opportunity. Every time someone buys tokens, token price grows. Every time someone spends tokens, price growth even more. So you can hodl some tokens and take part to make the page more popular and earn some ETHs selling a bit later.

Apr 15, 5:57AM EDT0
What kind of troubles do you have with the site if any?
Apr 14, 11:41AM EDT1

Sometimes we experience some brute-force attacks, but it is never was a problem.

Apr 15, 5:59AM EDT0
Is there other games like OMPx out there or is the first of its kind?
Apr 14, 5:47AM EDT1

There were a few:

Reddit Place (www.reddit.com/r/place/) - closed

One Million Dollars Home Page (www.milliondollarhomepage.com/) - closed

EthPlace (ethplace.io)

ThousandEtherHomePage (thousandetherhomepage.com)

Apr 14, 5:58AM EDT0
Is it safe to assume that OMPx idea is kind of like an online gallery for art?
Apr 14, 5:21AM EDT1

Actually, there are three layers here. I answered earlier but I'll repeat it here as well:

There are three layers here:

Is OMPx a new cryptocurrency?
Apr 14, 4:17AM EDT0

OMPx is a crypto-contract witch use OMPx Token as a currency  which is an ERC20 standard token

Apr 14, 5:17AM EDT0
Are there any security risks when playing OMPx?
Apr 14, 3:23AM EDT1

There is always something about risk if we talking about cryptocurrencies as far as it early stage technology,  but our token is ERC20 standard, the backend is secured and if you observe basic security measures it should be fine.

Apr 14, 5:08AM EDT0
How do you plan to develop OMPx further?
Apr 14, 2:28AM EDT1

For now, we are making the current experience better and improving current functionality. Also, we are going to open more statistics about the space and the token.
