Singapore, 15 July 2022 – TechStorm, Southeast Asia’s fastest-growing and de facto largest esports media entertainment network for Millennials and Gen Zs, has announced its inaugural “media launchpad”, with the aim of leading successful collaborations with the regional Web 3.0 community across Gamefi, digital assets including NFTs (Non-fungible tokens), DAOs (Decentralized Autonomous Organizations) and more.
This first-of-its-kind content partnership platform will aggregate unique, high quality, curated NFT projects with strong utility features primed for listing on open NFT marketplaces, as well as fresh Gamefi projects that are ready for a wider video gaming enthusiast community on TechStorm.
“We are exhilarated to unveil an all-Asian slate of specially curated projects designed by the Gamefi and Asian NFT creator community, which will be handpicked and revealed on a rolling basis by our in-house team as part of a regular content segment aptly named TechStorm’s The Drop. We have spotted a massive market opportunity with first-timers looking to access the rapidly booming, non-curated NFT marketplaces such as Opensea. Our aim is to help them navigate the NFT space and enable increased selectivity by amassing unique projects endorsed for their strong consumer value proposition. This is a great avenue to introduce the world of NFTs and Gamefi titles to TechStorm’s audience – a community of 92 million across 11 territories in Asia aged between 18-34 – who are eager to discover new NFT drops, Gamefi trends and projects,” says Debbie Lee, Founder of TechStorm.
