Fun, action, and excitement ruled over the weekend as Coins.ph, the Philippines’ leading fiat and crypto wallet services provider, joined gamers and pop culture enthusiasts at the recently concluded CONQuest Festival 2022 in Pasay City.
Staged as a Gaming-meets-Pop culture-meets-Tech event, this is the Manila debut of organizer AcadArena’s premiere gaming and pop culture festival from its home base in Iloilo City. Big names in the gaming community headlined the event, including Southeast Asian Games esports champions and popular streamers. Festival-goers came in hordes—many having donned intricate costumes that showcased their favorite characters—to play, connect, earn, and discover where their passion for games can take them.
Meanwhile, visitors at the Coins.ph booth enjoyed instant bonuses upon signing up for an account; crypto credits, gaming gears, and merchandise in raffle prizes; live games reminiscent of their favorite video games; as well as photo opportunities with well-known cosplayers and gamers.
“Coins.ph is constantly evolving with the technology, and with this, we are also evolving the experiences we build for our customers. The gaming community has always been open to new ideas and ways of doing things that tapping into this segment is a great opportunity to reach like-minded young people who are always excited for the future. We aim to be better ingrained in Filipinos’ culture and lifestyle by providing opportunities to pursue financial freedom through crypto and other innovative digital financial services,” said Wei Zhou, CEO of Coins.ph.
Coins.ph offers the easiest way to buy and sell crypto, where players can create their financial transactions for blockchain games. Apart from this, it empowers users to conveniently complete digital financial transactions such as purchasing game credits, buying load, paying bills, sending and receiving remittances/payments, paying for travel bookings, and buying credits for streaming services. Truly the best of both worlds—web2/web3—fiat/crypto—all in one easy-to-navigate platform.
Currently, it enables support for the following play-to-earn-related tokens: AXS and SLP (Axie Infinity game), GALA (GALA Games), SAND (The Sandbox), and MANA (Decentraland), thereby giving gamers a hassle-free way to convert in-game currencies to real-world cash.
Gamers who will just be joining the Coins.ph community on Telegram and Discord will also get to experience a vibrant and inclusive environment where they can freely share their thoughts, tips/tricks, and experiences with the platform and help shape the app according to their needs and preferences. Moreover, the Coins Champions program enables users themselves to play a huge role in leading some of the company’s online and offline initiatives.
Followers can expect Coins.ph to be more present in the gaming industry, both in the digital realm or offline even after CONQuest 2022. It revels in fostering genuine connections with the community, which can only be achieved by being present at events and having a direct dialogue with gamers. It is also beefing up support for blockchain gaming via its token offerings, more crypto products, and soon enough, by delving into the world of esports.
Crypto education advocacy
Coins.ph’s foray into the world of gamers is only a step in achieving its goal of becoming deeply involved in the Philippines’ culture and lifestyle. Just recently, the company has also taken part in Filipinos’ favorite activities and events, such as the Miss Universe pageant and Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) games. By engaging through quality and fun content, it is able to break into relatively untapped segments, much like how it provided the unbanked population access to the wider financial ecosystem.
“Our long-term goal is to make the concept of cryptocurrencies and crypto trading less intimidating to the average Filipino. By strengthening our initiatives on crypto education at the grassroots level, we are able to achieve our vision of widening financial inclusion through technology and innovation,” Zhou said.
Coins.ph is regulated by the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) and is the first-ever blockchain-based company in Asia to hold both Virtual Currency and Electronic Money Issuer licenses from a central bank. It has earned the trust of over 16 million unique users who transact with the platform and enjoy various perks and loyalty rewards.
