Planet IX, Polygon’s largest online NFT strategy-based web3 game and Yesports, the largest esports to web3 gaming platform are set to unveil their first in a series of powerful collaborations.
Planet IX is leading the gaming space with an incredible 80,000+ monthly real players having traded over 400M NFTs since the launch in November 2021. Yesports offers the gaming giant an unprecedented 36 million fan reach via their 11 esports team signed to the platform, to deliver a new era of fan-first, value-packed gaming products.
The collaboration between both projects will be broken down into multiple segments aimed at funnelling new users to Planet IX via a series of fun, familiar and gamified campaigns. Kicking off on Monday the 8th of May, Planet IX is offering a huge 250 whitelist spots, every week, for a month. The whitelist spots available will provide esports fans and gamers exclusive access to Planet IX’s Starter Packs, giving everyone a great start to become a participant in the upcoming 5.000.000 IXT Airdrop happening through www.Planetix.com from June. Each Starter Pack unlocks an incredible 25 gaming NFTs designed to boost new players' entry into the leading strategy-based game. To qualify for the airdrop users simply have to create a profile on the Yesports page, stake their YESP tokens and make at least 1 trade on the Planet IX storefront on the Yesports Marketplace.
Parallel to the whitelist claim campaign, gamers will have their chance to win an incredibly sought-after Planet IX Avatar pack NFT valued at around $50 USDC, via Yesports weekly No Loss Prize Game function. Thousands of gamers join the No Loss Prize Game weekly, staking their YESP tokens to be eligible to win the best gaming NFTs from Yesports expansive partner network. Gamers are rewarded for their loyalty in the Prize Games, as users that stake early receive hundreds of thousands more tickets to the Prize Game raffle than those staking on the last day. The previous No Loss Prize Game alongside Decentral Games saw an incredible 4m YESP tokens staked into the Yesports platform.
“At Planet IX, we always aim to add as much value to web3 as possible, and collaborations across the ecosystem is a big part of forwarding and strengthening the industry,” says CMO at Planet IX, Rasmus Rasmussen, further mentioning that “kicking off our new campaign with Yesports is a new addition to our partnership which we’re excited to see the effects of”.
Sebastian Quinn, CEO of Yesports stated that “We are extremely proud to have fostered this partnership with Planet IX as we continue to launch a new era for web3 games and fan experiences.” Adding that “The web3 space as a whole is in dire need of meaningful collaborations that drive significant value back to gamers. Partnering with Planet IX is an incredible step forward in realising this next-level value for our millions of esports fans and gamers”.
Yesports and Planet IX have set their sights on a long-term and sustainable partnership with the purpose of onboarding millions of esports fans to their web3-based game. As both partners look to the future they will begin to explore the opportunities for deeper fan engagement experiences including esports-branded in-game assets and specialised loot boxes. Planet IX have experienced massive success in onboarding traditional gamers having originally launched as a web2-based game before moving to web3. Their understanding of the web2 to 3 gamer onboarding requirements in partnership with Yesports will prove to be immensely powerful in supporting that merge via powerfully fun and familiar gaming experiences.
