JAKARTA, Indonesia Feb. 21, 2023 – RRQ, the leading global esports organisation based out of Indonesia, today announces that it has introduced a blockchain-based NFT membership programme for its fanbase in partnership with Zilliqa, the high-performance, high-security and low-fee layer-1 blockchain protocol.
The move by RRQ to transition its membership programme to the blockchain is a first for Indonesian esports teams and will bring with it a host of new benefits for its significant global fanbase, under two different membership tiers: RRQ King Pass and RRQ Royal Card.
The RRQ King Pass is a blockchain-based digital asset (NFT) available free-of-charge to existing RRQ members and can be used to access exclusive benefits across all RRQ platforms. From today, existing RRQ members will be able to upgrade their membership to the new blockchain-based RRQ King Pass free of charge by visiting nft.teamrrq.io
The RRQ Royal Card is a new premium membership tier that is limited to 1,000 members and will be available as an upgrade to RRQ King Pass holders while supplies last. The RRQ Royal Card unlocks a host of all-new benefits for holders, including access to online and in-person events, discounts, prizes and more. RRQ Royal Card holders will also receive a Royal Box, containing limited edition apparel and exclusive RRQ memorabilia.
Both the RRQ King Pass and Royal Card are lifetime memberships, which once purchased, are able to be sold on or traded by holders. For more information about the RRQ King Pass and Royal Card, visit nft.teamrrq.io.
Speaking on today’s announcement, Andrian Pauline, CEO at RRQ, said:
“The blockchain-based NFT membership programme introduced today is a breakthrough for the Indonesia esports scene. Web3 technologies represent an innovation that will allow all of us at Team RRQ to reach, reward and interact with our fans like never before – and this is only the beginning. The RRQ King Pass and RRQ Royal Card introduced today will be bolstered by further utility beyond today’s announcement, including the soon-to-launch RRQVerse, which will enable holders to meet, talk and play together. We are delighted to partner with Zilliqa on these initiatives and are excited to once again be leading and innovating with new technologies for the benefits of our fans everywhere.”
Also commenting, Tom Fleetham, Head of Business Development – Sporting and Gaming at Zilliqa, said:
