Oleksandr Usyk Partners Up With The QMALL Crypto Exchange Ahead Of His Upcoming Match With Anthony Joshua
Over the past few years, cryptocurrencies have become increasingly associated with the world of sports, with a recent example of this being the renaming of the Staples Center to the Crypto.com Arena and Crypto.com being named the official sponsor of this year’s FIFA World Cup in Qatar. Plenty of prominent sports celebrities such as Floyd Mayweather have also previously expressed their support for the crypto and blockchain industry, with boxing champion Oleksandr Usyk now joining that list by partnering up with the QMALL crypto exchange. What is QMALL? QMALL is a cryptocurrency exchange that is legally allowed to operate in Europe as it has a license there. To date, the exchange has attracted over 300,000 European traders and in September of this year, the exchange will launch several launchpads for new European crypto projects. QMALL users will also be able to invest in a variety of new projects, albeit only through the exchange’s token. This token also offers a variety of extra benefits to holders and has a direct impact on growth too. Like most other crypto exchanges, QMALL wishes to establish key strategic partnerships in order to both help the crypto industry gain additional mainstream attention and help the European market recover after the COVID-19 pandemic and the still ongoing Russia-Ukraine conflict. To that end, the exchange has partnered up with Oleksandr Usyk, a Ukrainian professional boxer who is scheduled to face Anthony Joshua on August 20th, 2022. What is QMALL planning for the future and what has it already accomplished? The proclamation by QMALL concerning the establishment of Europe’s largest launchpad (QPad), which will be available to crypto startup companies from all over the world, was a major moment in the cryptocurrency sector’s relatively short history. The project will be introduced through collaborative efforts with Sophia Antipolis, Silicon Valley’s French counterpart. QMALL has also incorporated the Euro for its features and services in order to further enhance its trading capabilities for the users. Moreover, not only is the very first Ukrainian Crypto Bank currently in the works, but QMALL will also release crypto cards along with the world’s inaugural meta crypto exchange in the future. Why is the partnership important? Russia attacked Ukraine earlier on in 2022 and the ensuing conflict continues to this very day. During these trying times, Ukraine received an enormous amount of crypto and NFT-based donations, which it used to obtain food, medicine, water, and other necessities. The key takeaway here is that crypto succeeded where traditional financial institutions such as banks failed. The goal of the partnership is to hence successfully utilize the collaborative power between QMALL and Oleksandr to support Ukraine and highlight the unification of the brands to viewers across the globe. After all, Ukraine needs to bolster its economy and ensure that there can be some semblance of financial security and prosperity once the war with Russia eventually ends. To that end, Oleksandr Usyk wants to do his part for his country and will therefore be wearing official QMALL merchandise for his upcoming match in order to promote the new partnership. Be sure to check out QMALL’s official website and keep up to date with all of the latest updates through the Twitter, LinkedIn and Telegram channels.
Snook Showcases The importance of Community Engagement Through BBT-Themed Rooms For Partner Projects
Community engagement can make or break any project in the cryptocurrency space. Snook, the online multiplayer IO game, has developed a new solution to help more projects connect with their communities. The BBT-themed rooms are an exciting addition, and the venture has a strong lineup of initial partners. Snook Goes The Extra Mile Despite the popularity of non-fungible tokens (NFTs) and GameFi, some industry inefficiencies still need to be addressed. For example, Snook acknowledges there is s degree of inflation that needs to be flattened sooner rather than later. In addition, the project has cracked the code to capture the value of skills and performance. That makes it different from the traditional buzz and speculation song and dance one would associate with NFTs. As a leading game on the Polygon blockchain, Snook has proven very successful since its launch. Measuring skilled work invested in the creation and development of NFTs is what brings out the true value of these non-fungible tokens. While artists deserve to make money, not everything they create will be valuable. It all comes down to applying oneself, getting better, and reaping the rewards from doing so. That different mindset enables the Snook team to tackle NFTs from a very different angle. The recent introduction of BTT-themed rooms illustrates that point rather well. Every BBT-themed room is a branded and token-gated experience where projects can engage with their community. In addition, every partner project can leverage Snook’s Snake-like gameplay to create a branded environment where they can organize game nights and tournaments. There are many opportunities ahead for partner projects. Teams can design in-game assets with their brands to make community members feel they are part of something much bigger. In addition, these rooms and environments offer utility to token holders and community members. What is pretty interesting is how non-token holders can still see a project’s BBT-themed room but not enter it. They will be prompted to acquire the token when they try to enter, creating a new onramp to bring in new community members. Strong Initial Partner Lineup The vision by Snook and its BBT-themed rooms strikes a chord with many projects and communities. The first collaboration is with Unstoppable Domains, one of the biggest blockchain and web3 communities. That partnership will offer a new place to hang out for UD members and enables Snook to continue its growth curve in the broader industry. Through this partnership, Snook users can log in with their Unstoppable Domain and play against other UD holders. They gain access to an exclusive room with Unstoppable Domain branding and theming. Moreover, the games feature special Snooks tailored to the Unstoppable Domains brand, which is used to earn $SNK tokens and/or native chain tokens. A second top-tier partner materialized in LobsterDAO, which also received dedicated BBT-themed rooms. The team plans to host an exclusive game night for all LobsterDAO NFT holders. In proper DAO fashion, the community could vote on the game night idea and how they would organize things. With more partnerships looming on the horizon, these BBT-themed rooms will become more commonplace over the next few months. It is essential for projects to engage their communities, and creating a safe and fun space to hang out and play games – with potential rewards – is a welcome addition.
The NFT industry is riddled with projects that suffer from a short-term vision rather than a long-term mindset. Speculation and greed reign supreme, and community engagement is often an afterthought. With the help of Snook’s BBT-themed rooms, all of that may finally begin to improve. NFTs Are About More Than Speculation Many people agree there […]
