Web3 community enabler BlockchainSpace has partnered with Smart Communications to explore Web3-powered solutions that connect communities, unlock new opportunities, and drive growth for all stakeholders.
The partnership marks a major milestone for Web3 adoption in the Philippines and beyond, according to Peter Ing, CEO of BlockchainSpace. He describes the collaboration as an indication of continued growth in enterprise interest in contributing to a Web3-enabled future.
“Filipinos have been at the forefront of utilizing Web3 since the peak of the pandemic. With millions already owning crypto wallets and participating in GameFi, the Philippines has consistently been one of the leaders of Web3 adoption in Southeast Asia. Through this partnership, BlockchainSpace and Smart will continue to build on that foundation by enabling more communities to connect in a truly open, meaningful and secure manner,” Ing said.
“This partnership aligns with Smart’s mission to empower FIlipinos with the latest digital innovations so they can live more today,” said Lloyd Manaloto, First Vice President and Head of Prepaid and Content at Smart.
Since 2020, BlockchainSpace has empowered over 100 communities and raised $20 million from top investors, including Animoca Brands, Spartan Group, and Crypto.com Capital. To further enable communities to thrive in the space, BlockchainSpace provides guild leaders, gamers, creators, and everyone in between with blockchain solutions as well as trademark community programs such as the Guild Partner Program and Creator Circle.
The Creator Circle, which will soon be publicly launched for creators in tandem with Smart, already has more than 150 creator sign-ups regionally–amounting to an aggregate following of more than 20M across all social networks despite only being in closed beta.
This program was introduced to empower those within the creator economy, an emerging type of market which connects creators to their fans and brands and allows the creator to monetize their content, output, or skills all while building a community.
Aside from the Creator Circle, Filipinos can look forward to more initiatives from BlockchainSpace and Smart that will help unlock the full potential of Web3 for all. The two companies are working closely together to deliver exciting new programs and innovative solutions that would continue to empower communities to scale sustainably and benefit from Web3.
