September 14, 2023 – Singapore, Singapore
In a groundbreaking moment for the global Web 3.0 community, BlockchainSpace introduced its Web 3.0 community-collectible platform, YEY, through an impressive campaign at the FIBA Basketball World Cup held in the Philippines in August 2023.
Sharing the vision of Web 3.0 for all
In May 2023, Singapore’s BlockchainSpace forged a strategic partnership with the Philippines’ largest telecom provider, Smart Communications, to bring the best of Web 3.0 not only to Smart’s vast subscriber base of nearly 60 million users but also to a broader Southeast Asian audience.
The collaboration came to fruition in August 2023 when YEY launched at the most-attended FIBA Basketball World Cup in history.
This high-profile event enabled both companies to expose a global audience to Web 3.0 through a major sporting event that brings communities together, fulfilling their shared vision of ‘Web 3.0 for all.’
At this launch, QR touchpoints were strategically placed at tournament venues, allowing attendees on the Smart telecommunications network to receive exclusive Smart-FIBA Shinys as tokens of their participation.
These Smart-FIBA Shinys also served as on-chain tickets for an off-platform promotional raffle in collaboration with the Philippines’ Department of Trade and Industry.
Winners were selected based on their wallet addresses, with the number of Shinys collected acting as multiplier factors in the raffle.
Prizes included coveted FIBA finals phase tickets, semi-finals and finals among other exclusive rewards.
