Jakarta, 8 February 2022 – BOOM Esports has secured a spot to launch team NFTs on Yesports, the world’s first and only Web3 Esports Engagement Platform (W3EP). Yesports offers a Web3 white glove service for esports teams that includes NFT design and go-to-market strategy, as well as an NFT marketplace for teams and fans to engage with each other. The platform’s long term vision is to deliver an unrivaled esports-centric social portal through which fans can participate in the emerging metaverse.
Seeking to onboard millions of esports enthusiasts to Web3, Yesports is designed to encourage fan participation through greater engagement with Esports teams and allow tangible ownership of valuable and rare utility-first esports assets.
“We are always looking to stay on the edge of engaging with our fans and this partnership with Yesports represents our commitment to step into the next generation of fan engagement. The possibilities of Web 3.0 and NFTs really excite us and we hope that is true for all of our fans as well,” said Gary Ongko Putera, CEO of BOOM Esports.
The marketplace, built with a grant from Polygon Studios, creates a new, highly curated and focused venue for teams to release unique generative NFT packs or one-of-a-kind NFT collectibles on dedicated virtual team storefronts. Users can also expect to enjoy first access rights to exclusive NFT drops, multi-asset staking rewards as well as governance and voting rights by holding the YESP token, which will power the marketplace. Fans will also be able to buy, sell and trade various esports-focused NFTs all in one place.
“With our partnerships, Yesports becomes the world’s largest esports-focused NFT marketplace with over 16.5 million fans from the get-go and represents the beginning of a new generation in esports fan engagement – one that takes place in Web 3.0. We are excited to deliver real-world utility into the NFTs themselves and give them a multitude of functionalities well beyond just a beautiful collector’s item,“ said Sebastian Quinn, CEO of Yesports.
Some examples of the benefits that BOOM Esports NFT holders could enjoy include priority access to signed/custom team jerseys, merchandise drops, and whitelist spots for future NFT drops. Fans can also look forward to potentially gaining access to private Discord servers, athlete AMAs and even team training live streams.
“Our partnership with Yesports will open the door for newer ways of interaction, enabling us to better serve our partner brands by providing them with visibility in the metaverse where the gen-z and gen-alpha will be socialising for most of their time. This small step towards metaverse will enhance our brand experience globally by removing all geographic borders,” said Devesh Kabdwal, CRO of BOOM Esports.
To commemorate the partnership, Yesports will be releasing Partnership NFT Collectible giveaways this week for each team, which unlock special fan access and perks. These NFT Collectibles are just a taste/teaser of what’s to come for when the Yesports marketplace launches with the exclusive drops. For more information and updates, follow Yesports here.
