5 questions from Twitter
Question 1 from @tuan_iker: Could KBG make a difference and the advantage over competitors? Could you share some killer features of your platform? And what are the benefits of holding your token for long-term?
William Nguyen: First, different from many other projects focusing on only one sport (running), Runnow.io offers diverse sports, including running, cycling, swimming, gym, yoga, sleep, and more. As a result, users have multiple choices when choosing NFTs to start and play modes to earn.
Second, it’s easy to play and earn a lot in Runnow.io. There are 12+ Play Modes for users to participate and earn RUNNOW/RUNGEM tokens. With diverse NFTs collections, you can freely trade, sell, lend, lease them for more profits. Tournaments and challenges will be open soon to engage the whole community. Here is a sneak peek: Mara Runnow (for running), Tour de Runnow (for cycling), Swim with Runnow (for swimming), Runnow Man Tournament, and much more.
Also, we will cooperate with NGOs and social communities to organize regular activities for people to join and support those in need. Runnow.io wants to build a healthier, inclusive, and sustainable world where people not only take care of themselves but also care for others.
Moreover, Runnow.io will be an expansive ecosystem with endless growth opportunities. We will launch a Metaverse of NFT Games and release our own NFT Marketplace, SocialFi, DAO, etc. for you to trade and connect with other users.
We believe our above differentiation will set us apart from other similar projects and bring users long-term benefits when joining our project.
Question 2 from @Nurahme26898912: Trust and security are very important in any business, what makes investors, customers, and users safe secure when working with your project?

Question 3 from @Herbertchandl18: Is #RUNNOW game only support PC device?Many games don’t support mobiles, and that reduces the attraction of many players around the world. Will it be compatible with Android devices and also iOS ?Will it be released first in desktop version or mobile version?

Question 4 from @Aykutbarnabas: While researching Runnow io I noticed that you have 4 different levels of NFT Sneakers, they are Beginner, Jogger, Runner, Super Star. So, can you tell us about these different levels? What are the differences between these levels, which level will be most beneficial to the user?
William Nguyen: Definitely!
Beginner Sneakers allow you to run between 1 and 6 km/h, while Joggers enable faster speeds, at 4-10 km/h. Runners are higher-level sneakers in which you can run from 8 to 20 km/h. Super Stars are the most powerful sneakers which permits a 10-20 km/h run and highest earnings.
Depending on the level of Sneakers, you will earn different number of RUNGEM (reward token). The higher Sneakers levels, the higher earning rates. Each pair of sneaker will cost you 12 Energy to start exercising with the earning rates of 80, 100, 120, 140 RUNGEM respectively.
