Cure WorldCosplay (CW), dubbed the world’s largest cosplay platform, will be using blockchain technology to cure some of its longstanding challenges.
Popular in the cosplaying world as the Japanese translation of cute, “kawaii” would be the perfect adjective for the platform. Or so it seems.
Cure WorldCosplay has over 720,000 members hailing from different countries around the world. The platform can be accessed in 12 languages. The crowd is composed of cosplayers, prop makers, photographers, make-up artists, among others. Also, its Facebook and Twitter account has over 430,000 members and followers.
Cure WorldCosplay explained:
“Cosplayers have various motivations for their activities. Some cosplayers want to become professionals, others want more fans, and yet others are looking to share their work with groups. Photographers and props makers working closely with cosplayers also have some influence on the increasing diversity of motivations.”
Cosplay, in general, is also an industry worth $45 billion and growing. And every single industry that deals with a lot of money would admit to the difficulties entailed with it. The cosplay industry is not exempt from such.
Blockchain Once More
That is why the industry is turning to blockchain technology.
Recently, the platform released its very own Cosplay Token which would allow the community to make cross-border transactions without having to worry about expensive bank-to-bank fees or credit cards. Also, the platform can become a medium for community members to gain exposure and to be evaluated. The platform can also explore deeper into the technology to solve the prevailing language barrier among its members.
There are many more uses of blockchain technology. And so far, the cosplay community is barely scratching the surface.
