Edit: The JET8/OpTic Gaming collaboration is focused on the India and Southeast Asia market at this time. We will have news of a western hemisphere option later.
SINGAPORE -- September 16, 2018 – In collaboration with Singapore-based JET8, industry-defining esports media and entertainment organization, OpTic Gaming has launched OpTic Snap, a mobile social media app designed to connect OpTic’s active fan community, known as “the Greenwall,” wherever they are in the world. The app is available now as a free download on the Google Play Store.
The OpTic Snap app allows OpTic Gaming’s fans to share their favorite moments in picture or video format across major social media platforms, and even rewards them for doing so. Snap users earn JETS currency for in-app likes, comments, and shares, which can then be redeem discount vouchers up to 20% off and official OpTic Gaming merchandise.
These rewards aren’t simply wristbands and pins, but run the gamut of valuable offerings including an OpTic Pro Hoodie, Player Jacket, Pterodactyl Scallop Tee, and more. All that fans need to do to participate is to do what they are already doing – being loud, passionate, and proud members of the Greenwall.
“Esports fans are passionate about their favorite teams, and spend a huge amount of time creating and sharing social media content,” said Joshua Thomson, JET8 Foundation Director. “JET8 allows OpTic Snap to reward their fans for this support and turn them into paid micro-influencers, building a powerful community where both the brand and its fans share in value.”
“This isn’t just an opportunity for us to give back to the fans that have loyally supported the organization for years,” said OpTic Gaming GM Romain Bigeard. “It’s a way for us to help them get even better connected with each other as well, forging tighter bonds and an even more vibrant fan culture.”
“A company like JET8 will be pivotal for us to develop fan engagement throughout the eastern hemisphere,” Said OpTic Gaming International Development Manager Jesal Parekh. “Our hope is that OpTic Snap will be a key platform for our now-global community to engage with each other. This is just the first of many initiatives to better serve our fans in the region.”
JET8 (www.jet8.io) is the world’s first tokenized social engagement platform and is revolutionizing the relationship between content creators, influencers and brands. It has technology development, sales and marketing offices based in Singapore, Vietnam, the Philippines, Indonesia, South Africa and Spain.
