Recapitulation of RugZombie PROJECT AMA event held at AMA LOVERS CLUB.
Venue: https://t.me/amaloversclubDate: Friday, 11th June, 2021Time: 14:00 UTC
The RugZombie PROJECT team was represented by @Emperor_zombietine, @Nn_mss
and @Gorilla_Fi who judiciously shared with us detailed knowledge and information about
1st Segment: INTRODUCTION
Q1: Can you please introduce yourselves and your background, also introduce the
team working on RugZombie?
sure, ill go first here, and let nams and silverback respond next
Hi, I’m Emperor Zombietine (EZ for short). My background was in public education and
the non-profit sector. This part of my life is where I developed a love for restoration and
resurrection as most of my charity efforts were focused on restorative projects. I also do a
lot in the VC (venture capital) world and buy and sell businesses as a hobby. I got into
crypto in 2017 because my neighbor at the time was a huge BTC whale. I have since
become enamored by the possibilities and technological advances that blockchain and
crypto bring to the world.
Obviously from my background you can tell that I began as a non-technical founder, and I
am always learning all I can about full stack blockchain development, or at least enough to
know what I am looking for and what I am talking about. I stand on the shoulders of giants
though with @Gorilla_Fi and @nn_mss . They are the mad scientists here with the
Q2: Can you introduce RugZombie, what critical problems does it solve that existing
solutions are not solving and what’s the competitive advantage?
Essentially, if you have been rugged/exploited by known scams, you will be able to use
that rugged token in our GRAVES which are similiar to a single asset staking pool. You
earn a yield in our token
I will answer about competitive advantage after @Gorilla_Fi explains the TOMBS.
When I created Gorilla-Fi, I began looking at liquidity a bit differently. 99% of all projects
on BSC are paired with BNB and 99% of all projects on Uniswap are paired with ETH. But
why? Reason being people think that is all they can do. However, I thought outside the
box and when I created Gorilla-Fi, I created its liquidity with $CAKE. That pairing was very
powerful and as $CAKE went from $10 to $44 Gorilla-Fi mooned with it. Now, with
RugZombie I want to go further and create liquidity for our native Zombie token and
rugged tokens. Essentially, Zombie will be paired with and have liquidity with several
rugged tokens overtime, creating a web of unique liquidity pairs. As people buy rugged
tokens to stake in our TOMBS we will essentially be bringing rugged and dead projects
back from the dead. Hence, RugZombie.
Project Incubators — The hope is to give trust by proxy of another more trusted project.
Decentralized Service Level Agreements — Similar/same to insurance, not widely used and
is still a bit too technical and early to be meaningful.
Our NFTs will have use cases beyond art.
Q3: Is GRAVE different from TOMB?
Seems i have come across those two words on RugZombie!
Yes. these are our cheeky ways of saying pools and farms.
GRAVES are more akin to single asset staking pools, while TOMBS are LP pairings with
Q4: Can you briefly describe the top milestones you have achieved and your target
milestones with timelines, also share your roadmap?
We hope to launch in June, however we are more focused on making sure our project is
right rather than fast so it could be as late as July. We have seen projects get in trouble
for overpromising on dates and deliverables, we want to get it right not get it fast.
We will release the contract address and ticker for review for the community before
launch and will update our community, but currently are waiting to get backend squeaky
clean from the audit before public release of that information and getting a solid launch
date. It is coming soon however, so our community won’t be waiting around indefinitely.
Part of the reason we are doing some initial marketing (including this AMA) is we think
there is a lot of need for what we do, and some opportunities, we have our eyes set on the
MVB program with Binance, and once our project is deployed we will be applying there. A
strong, vibrant and healthy community is a factor in those kinds of programs.
Our initial launch is a huge deal and milestone. We will deploy with our Dapp ready and
usable, with unique NFTs ready to go. After launch we are releasing some cool features
that we will be a bit coy about right now 🙂 but I will share one, because we are about
90% done with the backend of it.
We have an Auction feature (name pending) where we will be releasing certain one of a
kind NFTs in an IFO style auction. This will help us manually burn supply and this is a
community funded way of contributing to marketing. A lot of new projects raise marketing
funds either through IFO or I have even seen them open marketing wallets for community
We wanted to do something fun to raise specific funds for marketing, but instead of just
asking for money, or doing an IFO, this auction gives value back to our users in a fun way
that fits our narrative and use case, so everyone benefits.
Another feature I will tease are our Multiplier Graves…all I can say is you are going to want
to stake our token for the long haul. There will be some gravely exciting things for long
term holders. 🙂
We have some other features we are keeping under wraps that involve our NFTs.
Lastly, we will always be adding new GRAVES and TOMBS as we have the treasury funds
to do so.
Those are just our Q3 plans.
Q5: The website seems not to be active yet. When do you plan to launch the platform?
July 4th for us was more of security blanket that we can say that date without getting in
trouble 🙂 would you say the same @Gorilla_Fi?
Q6: Can you briefly describe your PARTNERSHIPS so far?
deadlast.ca is one of our guys working on the autoshark NFT. Also, @Jussjoshinduh is
one of our go to guys and just finished a pretty awesome NFT for us. Thanks bud.
Q7: Can you give an overview of your Tokenomics, and the UTILITY of the $ZMBE
Token? Is the token ticker correct?
ANS: Of course. We have not released our ticker or contract yet, so be wary of scams and
Our NFTs not only provide a fun and cathartic way to memorialize your participation in a
crappy event (a rug pull), they are going to be pivotal in our gaming ecosystem that we
are developing and will have some other sneaky uses along the way, including a
secondary market, merchandise and some other features. We are kind of mum on those
features at the moment because we would rather underpromise and overdeliver.
But the big one you can be thinking about is gaming. Each unique NFT will have value in
our gaming ecosystem. If you have ever played games like MTG or Hearthstone, you will
have an idea of what we are trying to do.
@Gorilla_Fi @nn_mss did I miss something or mispeak there?
Folks, be wary as our contract is not deployed yet, so anything you may see before we
public release that is probably a scam. wait for the official contract address 🙂
EDIT: it IS a scam not probably. always check contract address from multiple sources.
2nd Segment: LIVE Questions
ANS: This is a great question. I think the primary utility of NFTs currently is for art
collectors and appreciators. However we plan to use our NFTs in our gaming ecosystem.
Imagine your cool Zombie NFT has abilities in a game later on. you can build strategies
around different types of features and characters.
Q2: You keep mentioning DeFi100 on your Twitter page and that users who got
rugged by @DEFI100 should come and commiserate with you and earn a custom NFT.
How about users who got rugged by other projects apart from DEFI100? And who are
those users eligible for the RugZombie Airdrops?
ANS: Of course we plan to offer more than just for D100. Our list of initial graves is here:

Our airdrop contests are social contests. Anyone can participate. We will drop the airdrop
link after the AMA closes so everyone can see it.
Q3: You Tweet that ‘One of our community Undertaker’s mistakenly “metered” our
recent posts on medium. He’s dead to us now”. What does this mean, isn’t it scary to
use this term. Kindly clarify for the sake of us newbies that are keenly following your
ANS: just a bit of morbid humor 🙂 I was the one who metered the post
accidentally….and I posted that tweet on twitter. Forgive us for having a darker shade of
Q4: Why RugZombie is committed to cleaning up defi and becoming the deadicated
BSC clean up crew?
Do the team already think what problems will come for doing this and do the have the
solution for those problems?
ANS: Thanks for the great question. One of the big partnerships that we failed to mention
earlier is with RugWarnings.com. RugWarnings.com is an effort to bring the DeFi
community together to discuss and identify rugs (hopefully before they happen). There
are so many new projects and rugs popping up all the time that it is too big of a task for a
small team to identify everything. That is why we need to rely on the community and our
partnership with RugWarnings.com.
yea sorry bro, I thought it was clear since you were involved in that one. Huge benefit to
us is having that one going.
Q6: Many crypto projects use social media influencers as a marketing technique and
give them a lot of project tokens. When these people are listed, they put immediate
selling pressure on the token.
Could you tell us about Rugzombie’s strategy in this regard?
ANS: Yes we actually answered this one here: in short, we agree and do not have plans to
do any social influencer sponsorships currently

Q7: Your idea seems really great and essential due to the current crypto situation with
alots of scam coins…im interested to your project and i want to understand the
strategy that you will follow to select rugged and scam tokens…also if users can help
finding some scam projects?
ANS: Yes so our website was initially live but connected to the bsc testnet. People kept
asking why their wallets wouldn’t connect so we replaced it with the “Somethings
coming” teaser for now. Regarding security, we’re sending our code in for a tech rate
audit today and will get more audits as the project progresses. Our code has also forgone
thorough unit and integration testing which will be visible on our GitHub repo once we
make it public. I think a strength of the project is that it’s unique and our focus is bringing
value to the community, a potential weakness could be too much ambition, we have a lot
Q11: We will be sending our contracts to TechRate soon to be audited before launch
and have plans to be audited by CertiK after launch.
ANS: hopefully you guys will become a part of our community and help us win the MVB
program so we can get that certik audit on Binance’s dime 🙂
In relation to an article in your medium, where you explain that after 30 days of
continuous betting, I will be able to mint and claim my personalized NFT, I have the
following doubt, will I have custody and full power over that NFT or “RUG ZOMBIE”
will have any power over it?
How can people who have not been victims of rugpull support and participate in long-
term growth of the RugZombie project?
ANS: Here is one: https://rugwarnings.com/gorilla-yield-yape/
Q15: two token system is $ZMBE project,its really good…Not all projects can have two
tokens, as we all know..so its a great achievement for $ZMBE….Understood all, but
did not understand one thing…what is the connection Between DeFi100 and $ZMBE
project??what is the relationship with getting NFT by DeFi100????
ANS: we have no connection to this team or project. We identified it as a rug pull and are
trying now to restore some value to victims through offering an NFT if you hold their
Ok @hon_aim I believe we are at the 1 hour mark. And tried to answer enough questions
to satisfy the curious 🙂
Once last mention is that we do have 2 airdrop contests happening right now, which you
