Ernesto Contreas, Dash Core Group business lead for South America stated that their partnership with Aircoins would give Dash access to new markets while opening a new engagement model and user experience. He further added,
As interest and adoption around AR and cryptocurrency continues to increase, merging the two through a fun game is an exciting step for both technologies,
AR is poised for exceptional growth, and together, Dash and Aircoins are primed to engage users along that journey.
The collaboration with Aircoins will give Dash a glimpse of the innovative technology, which is touted to be the future. Also, Aircoins’s presence in the South American market gives an edge to Dash, which has been as successful in the region. Moreover, due to stiff competition from platforms like Ripple, Stellar, and SWIFT, and emerging traditional giants like VISA, Dash needs to up its game for staying relevant. Partnerships with innovative and futuristic platforms like Aircoins are just what it needs.
Commenting on its latest collaboration, Aorcoins CEO Emal Safi said,
The Dash protocol is a perfect fit for retailers and cryptocurrency users because of its low transaction fees and InstantSend feature. Aircoins layers geolocation, gaming, and augmented reality to make rewards and using Dash fun and convenient while providing an interactive experience. These innovations in technology create new payment and advertising opportunities as we drive foot traffic to retailers and merchants.
Aircoins is an AR app that adopts a Pokemon Go like the design. It utilizes geo-location, which allows users to hunt and collect cryptocurrencies which are scattered around the globe. It incentivizes by rewarding them additional tokens for hunting more. The primary motive of the platform is to introduce digital currencies among the masses in an engaging and fun manner.
