From Guilds to Creators: BlockchainSpace Expands into the Creator Economy
April 13, 2023
Harnessing the power of Web3, collaboration, and education to revolutionize the creator landscape.
Blockchain technology, the driving force behind innovations such as DeFi, NFTs, and more, is reshaping the world as we know it. As this groundbreaking technology continues to make significant strides across various industries, from revolutionizing the art world to redefining data privacy, we at BlockchainSpace are now setting our sights on bringing this revolution to the creator economy.
BlockchainSpace (BSPC), the world’s largest hub for GameFi guilds and gamers, is expanding from gaming into the creator economy, adding a new market vertical without losing its focus on providing gamers and guilds the best community tools and educational resources to scale in the metaverse. Peter Ing, CEO and Founder of BlockchainSpace, said that the company’s strategy and vision will adapt to accommodate this expansion, introducing creators to Web3, providing education and collaboration opportunities, and overcoming challenges unique to this market.
To kick off this ambitious expansion, BSPC aims to establish a presence in the Philippines, reinforce its footing, and then slowly grow outward. The Philippines has been receptive to what BSPC has achieved over the years, providing a friendly environment for piloting different concepts and iterating on them. BSPC plans to expand into the greater Southeast Asian region and beyond, doubling down on its previous efforts and leveraging the successes and lessons learned from GameFi ventures.
Recognizing the need to empower creators and cater to their distinct requirements, BlockchainSpace is introducing the Creator Circle program. This innovative initiative will operate in tandem with the established GameFi-centric Guild Partner Program (GPP), ensuring that the specific needs of both sectors are addressed.
While discussing this topic, Peter went on to say, “The Creator Circle has been meticulously designed to provide a customized approach and an array of exclusive benefits tailored to content creators, acknowledging the considerable differences between their needs and those of guild owners. Moreover, the program will incorporate a badge system to foster and reward engagement within a content creator’s community, further enhancing the overall experience and bolstering creator-audience connections.”
In addition to launching the Creator Circle program, BSPC’s expansion involves introducing creators to the world of Web3 without overwhelming them with its technicalities. Enhanced asset ownership in gaming, empowering communities through shared values, and aligning creators and audiences will be key components of this process. NFTs, DeFi, and blockchain solutions will be gradually unveiled to create a seamless experience for creators.
Joseph Josue, CEO of Metasports, shares this vision with BSPC, stating, “Metasports and BlockchainSpace are committed to creating more access to financial tooling globally, as we believe it’s a critical factor in providing longevity for creators. Web3 enables global access to financial infrastructure, empowering communities and ensuring that creators can continue to thrive. While we may not yet fully grasp the vast potential of this tech, we’re confident that it will play a significant role in shaping the future of the creator economy and fostering sustainable success.”
For creators willing to put in the time and effort, there are opportunities to build a personal brand and a community of supporters. However, success in the creator economy requires consistency and discipline. Creators must continually produce content to maintain their relevance and build a lasting presence in the industry.
While on the topic of success in the creator economy, Aspen Sanez, Head of Marketing at BlockchainSpace, said, “By taking what we’ve learned from the GameFi economy and bringing the best of that world to the creator economy, we are creating a system where everyone is rewarded for engaging in or propagating the creator’s content. Everyone involved will share in the success of that creator.”
This expansion into the creator economy has the potential to significantly impact the industry, bridging the gap between gaming guilds, content creators, and the blockchain space. By adopting a tailored approach and focusing on the unique needs of creators, BSPC aims to strengthen its position within the market.
Peter elaborated on the company’s vision, explaining, “Expanding into the creator economy isn’t a pivot for us; it’s a natural market expansion that follows the same model we’ve been using in GameFi. We see a powerful trifecta in both spaces, consisting of the community owner, the brands, and the community itself. By entering this larger market, we’re amplifying the potential of our products and services, allowing us to cater to a wider audience, ranging from mainstream brands to independent creators, all while empowering them and their entire communities.”
As the company navigates the opportunities and challenges of this new market vertical, it is poised to usher in a new era of collaboration and innovation in the creator economy. With its strong presence in the Philippines and plans to expand further, BSPC is well-positioned to bring about a paradigm shift in the way content creators and their audiences interact and grow together in the digital world.
In conclusion, the expansion of BlockchainSpace into the creator economy showcases the limitless possibilities that blockchain technology can offer. By combining the strengths of gaming, content creation, and blockchain solutions, BSPC aims to pave the way for a more connected, empowered, and thriving creator community. As the digital landscape continues to evolve, companies like BSPC are leading the charge in creating meaningful and lasting change, setting the stage for a brighter, more inclusive future in the creator economy.
