Polygon, the top global blockchain ecosystem, invests in a new digital trading card platform built for celebrities, led by former OnlyFans executive
New York, NY, June 82022 – (SEAPWire) – Led by a formidable team of Web3 developers and former OnlyFans executives, Zoop will launch their digital collection trading platform powered by Polygon, Ethereum’s decentralized scaling ecosystem. The Zoop platform allows users to buy, sell, collect and trade 3D digital playing cards from their favorite celebrities.
At Zoop, fans can obtain official licenses, limited edition digital cards, and can sell and trade them on the secondary market.
“Zoop is the trusted home for genuine celebrity card giving, enabling all fans, regardless of their technical expertise, to participate in the web3.0 space. We hold users’ hands as they compete for digital collectibles in the auction process, show off their holdings to friends and ‘gather to connect’ with their favorite celebrities today and tomorrow. Zoop provides access to communities based on the cards users have, and reward points to users for their interactions with each other and within these communities. We are excited to launch Summer 2022,” said RJ Phillips, Founder and co-CEO of Zoop. “This is a win for celebrities, creating excitement for fans and a new way for brands to connect with their customers,” he said.
Zoop is capitalizing on the booming blockchain gamification market, which is growing into a $40 billion industry by 2021. And, by 2026, the industry is predicted to grow to $147 billion. By opening up the platform and combining it with today’s influencer-driven creator economy, the Zoop app allows fans to collect 3D digital trading cards from their favorite influencers and celebrities, fostering closer relationships between fans and influencers. Fans can buy, sell and exchange cards, and compete in competitions and challenges to earn points, unlocking special rewards including access to a like-minded community. Zoop’s inclusive ecosystem creates value for digital trading cards by enabling fully transparent leaderboards.
The Zoop team will be led by co-CEO Tim Stokely, technology entrepreneur and founder of OnlyFans, and RJ Phillips. The team, who will join the team in time for launch this summer, brings extensive knowledge of the creator economy and a proven track record of building true tech unicorns, while RJ’s expertise in growth and scaling makes for the perfect leadership team. Together, Tim and RJ plan to leverage their past career success and knowledge of the creator economy to eventually elevate Zoop into a global digital trading card ecosystem that drives value for creators and fans alike.
A precursor to its initial launch, Zoop is offering a limited number of pre-launch Priority Passes (PP), which reward earlier adopters with a number of perks, both in-app and real-life, in addition to an exclusive airdrop only. for PP holders. The first batch of Priority Passes is available now at mint.zoopcards.com.
Zoop will build its digital marketplace on the globally acclaimed Polygon blockchain network. Like Zoop, Polygon believes in Web3 for all, making it the ideal partner and blockchain of choice for the Zoop platform. Low transaction fees and high security standards make card trading on Zoop safe and accessible to everyone. In addition, Polygon’s sustainability commitment to making all of their NFTs carbon-negative by the end of 2022 is another important factor for Zoop.
“We are excited to be working with the Zoop team as they build their platform on Polygon. Zoop is in line with our mission to bring Web3 technology to a wider demographic, and enabling fans to connect to their favorite celebrities through Polygon is another step towards this goal,” said Michael Blank, COO of Polygon Studios, which has provided Zoop with a suite of services such as technical support, Web3 game design and distribution, asset expansion, and more.” We are excited to be working with the Zoop team as they build their platform on Polygon.
