BlockchainSpace, the leading Web3 community enabler in Southeast Asia, teamed up with Smart Communications Inc. to explore Web3-powered solutions that connect communities, unlock new opportunities and drive growth for all stakeholders.
“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,” said BlockchainSpace chief executive Peter Ing.
“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,” he said.
Lloyd Manaloto, first vice president and head of prepaid and content at Smart, said the partnership with BlockchainSpace aligns with Smart’s mission to empower FIlipinos with the latest digital innovations “so they can live more today.”
He said the company has always been an early adopter of the latest technology and is constantly on the lookout for programs that appeal to the passions of its subscribers, which it can turn into more immersive experiences.
“By leveraging the Philippines’ fastest and best mobile network, as recognized by Ookla, and the country’s widest 5G network, we believe that Smart is in the best position to unlock the value of Web3 in tandem with BlockchainSpace to benefit more Filipinos through accessibility and connectivity,” Manaloto said.
Since 2020, BlockchainSpace has empowered over 100 communities and raised $20 million from top investors, including Animoca Brands, Spartan Group and Crypto.com Capital.
