HONG KONG, Mar 30, 2022 - (ACN Newswire) - Blockpass is delighted to announce a new partnership which is being forged with H3RO3S, the real-life play-2-earn game, for the purposes of identity verification and onboarding. In this, Blockpass will be integrating its unique KYC solution with H3RO3S' platform as the company gears up to launch its app.

Designed to promote entertainment, working and mental well-being in socially distant situations, H3RO3S is a play-to-earn gaming system that attaches incentives to the different products, levels and talents. Primarily targeting students, it allows the users to redeem incentives amidst a backdrop of gaming by completing tasks - such as reading over assignments before submission - for other users. Users on the platform can earn up to $1500 per month by completing tasks on the platform, growing from the Alpha stage with $3+ per task to the Prestige stage where they can choose the tasks they are notified about.

Blockpass is a digital identity verification provider which provides a one-click compliance gateway to financial services and other regulated industries. Through Blockpass, users can create, store, and manage a data-secure digital identity that can be used for an entire ecosystem of services, token purchases and access to regulated industries. For businesses and merchants, Blockpass is a comprehensive KYC & AML SaaS that requires no integration and no setup cost. You can set up a service in minutes, test the service for free and start verifying and on-boarding users. Currently with more than 500,000 verified user identity profiles, Blockpass facilitates instant onboarding, and to date over 3000 services have taken advantage of this opportunity to get access to users with reusable digital identity profiles.

"H3RO3S is creating a new and important way to live in light of the recent COVID pandemic which has forced so many of us to change how we operate," said Adam Vaziri, Blockpass CEO. "We're proud to help in bringing compliance and security to this endeavor which has the opportunity to improve the day-to-day experience for those whose traditional social interaction has been impacted so heavily."

"In H3RO3S we believe that it does not matter who you are or where you come from," said Gregory Crous, CEO of H3RO3S. "We want everyone to become the best version of themselves with the talent they are naturally born with. Help yourself by helping others - Everyone deserves to fly!"

Blockpass has grown significantly in size and use since its inception, both in the number and range of users and organizations it has partnered with and the scope of its work. Blockpass continues to develop its digital identity protocol with updates and additions to improve the compliance experience. The existential need for DeFi projects to be regulatory compliant and the recent integrations have led to a surge in interest for Blockpass' On-chain KYC(TM) solution which promises to change the way blockchains enable compliance. Through its recent work with Animoca Brands, Blockpass is developing the ability to provide KYC where the delivery of the verification result is provably sent and shown on a blockchain without sharing the underlying data. This represents a significant step towards the future Blockpass hopes to bring about where identity verification can be proved without revealing any personal information at all.

SportsIcon Previews The Sports Metaverse with Legendary Athletes

SportsIcon (https://sportsicon.com/) the NFT platform for Sports NFTs today announced today that it is planning to launch The Sports Metaverse, the world's first virtual world specifically focused on sports.


At the 36th annual Game Developers' Conference (GDC) in San Francisco today, Dr. Dave Ranyard announced the unveiling of a new project by SportsIcon. The Sports Metaverse is a digital world devoted entirely to sports. For the first time in history the biggest sports stars, brands and clubs are together in one place. Built by SportsIcon and industry veterans from Sony, Doom, Playstation Home and Nvidia, Sports Metaverse allows you to trade NFTs, buy and develop land, interact with iconic sportspeople in 3D and visit stadiums in the metaverse.


Ranyard, who is Executive Producer at SportsIcon and a leading figure in virtual reality in the metaverse, is co-creating The Sports Metaverse, which has just revealed its new website


The NFTs include a masterclass offered by leading sports icons. Stars like Romelu Lukaku, the Belgian football professional who plays for the national team and as a striker for the English Premier League club Chelsea, offer unique insights into their experience and the secrets of their training success. These include interviews about the star's journey - what made them who they are today, and videos of them on the training field. Lukaku has also been volumetrically captured as part of the project and will appear in the sports metaverse in 3D:


“In the Sports Metaverse, I'm going to coach you on how I take a penalty – one of the hardest moments in my job. It's not just about performing physically. It's about concentration and performing mentally. There's a lot of pressure and you only have one chance. I want you to know what it feels like to be in a 1-on-1 training session with me – to be a professional football player,” Lukaku commented


SportsIcon CEO and Co-Founder Chris Worsey previously built a number of EdTech startups including Coursematch, one of the first movers in the trend of edtech companies aimed at democratising education and offering borderless access online.


“The Sports Metaverse is the next evolution in the fan and sports relationship. There has been a tectonic change in consumer behaviour accelerated by Covid and web3. We want to take the fan to the heart of sport, allowing them to interact with their favourite sports stars and brands, buy land next to them and connect with them in entirely new ways,” added Worsey.


SportsIcon is backed by rapper turned investor Nas, Dapper Labs, Dapper Labs CEO Roham Gharegozlou, Youtube Founder Chad Hurley, Hedera and Reserve Founder Andrew Masanto and ex NBA star Andrew Bogut.

  

Besides Lukaku, a series of sports stars and brands are lined up for The Sports Metaverse, with agreements underway with leading athletes from soccer, tennis, MMA, basketball, and baseball. A public land sale for the Sports Metaverse will take place in June.
