PACK RELEASE FAQ

 

When new packs are released, thousands of cards are sold in minutes as you all want the new cards/frames. The system creates a queue, or line, to sort through all of your orders. This is actually very common when thousands of NFTs are made one right after the other. Here is how it works:

 

• You buy a pack and open it on mobile or desktop

Please note, if you are able to open the same pack more than once, check your internet connection. It means the system did not get your card data to process and you have to try again.

 

• The platform receives the card data from when you opened your pack and sends it to the blockchain to tokenize it.

The system knows the order that all the cards were created in. With so many people opening new packs at the same time, your Asset IDs may not even end up back to back, especially if you are opening more than one pack!

 

• The blockchain tokenizes your cards with Asset ID and Serial and it returns the info to platform.

This where there is a long line/queue. Even though the blockchain has the information, a bottleneck is created while the information comes back to our platform and syncs up a few certificates at a time. The syncing in our platform takes hours, even though the cards have already been tokenized!

 

• When syncing has happened then the system knows the Asset IDs and Serials of your new cards and emails you the certificates!

You will be able to see your cards in your collection before you have the emailed certificate.

Our side of the system will take hours to catch up with the blockchain, and you will likely see that the circulation number increase before you have your own Serials.

This does not mean other people were able to skip ahead of you. It is the system catching up to the very fast blockchain.

 

PACK SALE FAQ

 

Choose the pack(s) of your choice and simply click purchase pack. To checkout go to your shopping basket and proceed to checkout. Follow the instructions to pay with one of these options - whatever works for you.

 

It's really that simple.

Currently, all "alien frame" cards in the store are limited edition and will only be available until a predetermined number of those packs have sold. That number is publicly announced when the pack goes on sale. After the maximum number of packs have been sold, we will stop producing these packs.

After that point, the only way to acquire these Doctor Who: Worlds Apart card/frame combinations is by trading them on the Marketplace.

DWWA uses Onfido to perform KYC checks on users. When you make your first withdrawal from DWWA you will need to pass our KYC check. This is done to keep us financially compliant and to keep you and the community safe.

You may also need to pass this KYC check if your account hits a threshold of financial activity from purchases and sales.

This check involves you uploading photo of a valid government-issued identification, (the type of ID you use will depend on your region, driving licence, passport etc). You will then be asked to take a selfie.

KYC is a one-off process, once you pass the KYC check you will be able to access the withdrawal process.

As part of our commitment to keeping our users safe, the identity check can only be performed through your DWWA account. All identification documents must be submitted through our platform – we do not accept emailed copies of your identity documents for verification.

For more information on Onfido our KYC provider please click here for their support website or here for their Terms of Use.

 

 

Head over to “My Profile” and then "Settings" and click on the "Start Verification" button. Follow the instructions on screen to complete the process.

 

 

Although uncommon, an identity check can fail once you complete the process and have submitted your information. Some of the reasons a submission can fail are:

  • An expired ID
  • A damaged ID
  • Dark or blurry photos
  • Photos with too much glare
  • Mismatched addresses (for example you've moved since your ID was generated)
  • If you're unsuccessful in your first attempt at the identity check, don't worry. You can try again.

 

If you are still unsuccessful in completing your KYC check then please reach out to us at [email protected] and we will work with our partner to help try and resolve the issue.

 

 

Here are a few important tips to help make sure your identity check is processed and verified:

  • Take a photo of your ID in a well-lit area, free of any glare.
  • Make sure that your ID is in focus and fully visible for the photo.
  • When taking your selfie, remain still until your photo is captured and displayed on the screen, if you move, the photo will come out blurry.
  • If you're photos are routinely coming our blurry, please try using a different device.
  • Make sure that the ID you are using is valid and has not expired.

 

For your own safety, please do not send personal information to us unless asked to do so. We will never ask you to send personal information to any other email address.

 

GAME FAQ

 

The turn based, trading card game will be released in Q4 2021.

 

 

No, it's very possible to win and work your way up the ranks without spending a dollar.

Although it's true that some cards are more expensive than others, a large part of balancing the game is aimed at ensuring you don't need to spend any money to have a highly competitive deck.

Because cards are tradable, it's also possible to purchase only what you need from other players to build your dream deck. Compare this to other digital trading card games where you're required to open hundreds of packs just to find that one card to compete with the meta.

At the end of the day, you can always sell your cards if the meta changes. The choice is yours.

PANDAKS FAQ

 

Lord President Pandak was one of the six founders of the Time Lord Society on Gallifrey, thus the Gallifreyan currency was named after him.

Pandaks are earned in a variety of ways through the Doctor Who: Worlds Apart ecosystem and are functionally a mix between referral points, store credit, and in-game currency.

1 Pandak is worth $0.01.

 

 

You can earn Pandaks several ways:

If you have suggestions for the utility of the Pandaks, please write to [email protected] or in discord.gg/worldspart in the #feedback-and-suggestions channel.

 

NFTS AND BLOCKCHAIN FAQ

 

NFTs (Non-Fungible Tokens) are the next generation of in-game items and collectibles. These items are tokenized with a smart contract and logged on the blockchain. This allows gamers to buy, sell and trade their in-game items or collectibles to other players with an un-hackable record of ownership. The blockchain gives gamers / collectors full ownership rights and control over their assets. NFTs can be created with rarity established and, in some cases, your digital collectible can become increasingly rare and 'one of a kind' over time, making it very valuable.

 

 

Traditionally, the companies that create games also own the items bought and sold within them outright.

So, when you buy in-game items, like a favourite skin in Fortnite, you do not actually own it, you cannot sell it to others and you almost certainly can't use it in other games.

However, creating these in-game items as NFTs gives players real ownership for the very first time. This allows you to sell these items for real money or use them in the Doctor Who: Worlds Apart trading card game or, indeed, other compatible games released in the future.

 

 

Not at all. Although cards are stored on the Ethereum network, players only interact on the network when they want to trade cards with other players. All other events in the game run using industry standard technologies like Unity, allowing gameplay to be seamless.

 

 

By its current design, Doctor Who: Worlds Apart creates/mints serial numbers for each card upon pack opening. Historically, the value of NFTs has seen to lower and certain variations of serial numbers holding a greater perceived value, so we do not recommend the purchaser hold onto unopened packs at the present time.

Instead, we advise you, the purchaser, to open them immediately to receive the most benefit from your Doctor Who: Worlds Apart cards. Although it is not currently possible, and is not a priority at the present time, we are looking into allowing the sale and transfer of packs on the market, or via a secondary source after wallet transfer, in the future.

 

SUSTAINABILITY FAQ

 

Non-Fungible Tokens, or NFTs, are digital assets encoded on a blockchain that represent ownership of a unique asset. The technology underlying NFT ensures that each token is unique, and NFT creators such as RGG have leveraged those characteristics of the technology to create a broad range of unique digital assets which can be used in games or sold in online marketplaces.

NFTs range from digital artwork (including the $69 million sale of an NFT by digital artist Beeple), to virtual real estate (one buyer recently purchased nine digital plots of land in an online game for approximately $1.5 million), to digital Doctor Who trading cards. NFTs are "minted" by issuers or creators and purchased through online exchanges or marketplaces.

The key characteristic of NFTs is provable ownership—that is, given the reliability of blockchain technology and decentralized ledgers, an NFT holder can be confident that his or her ownership of the underlying asset is secure. RGG creates "smart contracts," that are accompanied with each NFT which allow the seller to place conditions on the token-holder’s ownership rights, such as generating automatic royalty payments to the original NFT creator at each subsequent sale.

 

 

All NFTs operate on a blockchain network and all blockchain networks do use energy to operate. However, the amount of energy can vary considerably based on the blockchain being used and the steps taken by the company in charge of creating the NFTs.

In 2017, RGG recognized the carbon cost of trading on the Ethereum mainnet and took steps to reduce our carbon footprint for every NFT traded through our network and on our games. One of the main changes we’ve already made is to “hardfork” from main Ethereum network.

Our chain runs on a fork of Ethereum, and already uses less energy consumption than the Ethereum mainnet. This also gives our users zero gas fees on our platform. It’s also worth noting that from an industry wide perspective, only around 1% of transactions on the Ethereum mainnet can be attributed to NFTs. The vast majority of energy used is based on the speculative worth of Ethereum, not on NFT trading.

 

 

In 2017, we moved all our NFT transactions to our own hardfork of the Ethereum network and have since made many changes and updates focused on reducing the energy cost – that is one of the reasons why you pay no gas fees when you trade assets on our network.

The Ethereum network will be moving from a “Proof of Work” to a “Proof of Stake” system in 2021, which will reduce the mainnets energy consumption by as much as 90% overnight.

Our sidechain can take advantage of this change immediately, but we are also working on our own solutions. Later in 2021, we will be integrating our chain with Polygon and other third-party, Layer 2 network solutions.

 

 

Layer 2 networks, such as Polygon, essentially allow us to handle more of the heavy lifting of a transaction off the blockchain itself therefore, reducing our energy cost as more of the work will be done on our data servers which already use 100% renewable energy.

Once the layer 2 network has handled some of the work, it communicates with the layer 1 network (the original mainnet) all changes which are then verified as normal. This allows us all the advantages of the blockchain but with a significantly lower carbon footprint.

 

 

A blockchain is essentially a digital ledger of transactions that is duplicated and distributed across the entire network of computer systems. Each block in the chain contains a number of transactions, and every time a new transaction occurs on the blockchain, a record of that transaction is added to every participant’s ledger.

Cryptocurrency is the general term of any system for any sort of digital or virtual currency that uses cryptography to make it difficult to counter. Not every cryptocurrency project uses the blockchain, but many of the famous, including bitcoin, do. Likewise, not every blockchain project is about creating a virtual currency.

NFTs exist on a blockchain network, but a key difference is that NFTs are non-fungible, which means that each NFT generates a unique token through a process called minting. This makes the technology exciting for anyone interested in genuinely owning and trading digital assets.
