The app is available for download on Apple and Android devices, and it behaves like a social media network with a built-in crypto wallet. People can use their cryptocurrencies to tip their favorite creators, as well as to buy things on its marketplace.
During day two of BlockShow Asia 2019, Pepo founder and CEO Jason Goldberg hosted a keynote to present his new product. With 15,000 users and more than 45,000 peer-to-peer transactions to its credit, Pepo aims to change the way people create content for the crypto community.
“We are already among the biggest DApps in the world. We are now number 12, and we aim to reach the top really soon,” Goldberg said. “Pepo is the result of almost four years of research and listening to the crypto community.”
“We are the first DApp approved by Apple Pay, so people can buy our tokens using this payment method among others, of course,” he said.
Pepo lets its users upload short videos, and their followers to pay them tips using the built-in wallet. The tokens are used to tip the creators you choose, but also can be spent on the marketplace, which sort of allows its users to buy Amazon, Apple and stores gift cards using crypto.
“You can earn much more than likes, but real appreciation,” Goldberg said.
These Are The Golden Days Of Crypto Collectibles, Says Fintech Expert
Speaking on stage at BlockShow Asia 2019 in Singapore, True Global Ventures 3d founder Dusan Stojanovic said the time to invest in crypto collectibles is “right now.”
Some investors regard Bitcoin as a “safe haven” asset, and see high demand for it in a world of economic uncertainty. But Stojanovic sees the same value in crypto collectibles, especially in the gaming sector. He claimed that such collectibles could function as recession-resistant assets.
Crypto collectibles are a category of digital asset that are backed by non-fungible tokens – each token is unique and no two are the same. He sees great opportunities for collectibles in the near-term. “I am really bullish about gaming and non-fungible tokens,” he said. “CryptoKitties was the start. I think the timing is right now, way before five years [from now].”
Stojanovic added that football clubs are “jumping into” the blockchain gaming space right now. Last month, Germany’s FC Bayern Munich announced a partnership with Stryking Entertainment to produce digital collectibles of its players. The Sacramento Kings also recently announced a new collaboration with the creator of Ethereum-based Kaiju toys, CryptoKaiju, to create unique, limited-edition collectibles that are driven by a blockchain.
