SEOUL, Korea – October 19, 2022 – Global fandom business startup, bemyfriends signed a business agreement with fashion metaverse company, ALTAVA Group, to serve as a strategic partner for connecting NFT projects in real life (IRL) and building exclusive communities for NFT holders.
The partnership follows shortly after ALTAVA identified the need to incorporate bemyfriends’ hero solution, b.stage, an all-in-one, web-based SaaS solution, enabling brands and creators to manage their own membership communities and global e-commerce based on their content and IP. With the expertise of bemyfriends products and services that help global brands and creators closely communicate with fans, express their creativity, and monetize, ALTAVA Group is confident that this will bring further value to its brand partners.
In signing the agreement, bemyfriends and ALTAVA Group have committed to exploring opportunities to enlarge the scale of their business in the creator economy market based on bemyfriends’ technology and expertise and ALTAVA Group’s IP. Starting with this business agreement, bemyfriends will expand its services that support fandom businesses online and offline to lay a foundation for a true creator economy.
In particular, bemyfriends plans to support the establishment of IT infrastructure for online and offline connection of BAGC KOREA NFT, a joint project between ALTAVA Group and Elite Apes, and will also provide goods planning, shop operation, and logistics service. Utilizing b.stage’s features, it will build an IP holder-only community for Bored Ape Golf Club Korea (BAGC Korea) NFTs and support active communication among NFT holders. In addition, through NFT certification, it will also enable holders to order exclusive products utilizing their IP and support BAGC golf course reservation functions. The two companies are expected to continue to explore and closely cooperate for business expansion.
“ALTAVA’s mission is to help brands explore the opportunities between the IRL and Web3. The partnership with bemyfriends will help us to further expand on this. BAGC (Bored Ape Golf Club) NFT, is a natural way for us to start the process since the project works in reverse and showcase how the IRL can also benefit the Web3.” said Andy Ku, CEO of ALTAVA group.
“bemyfriends continues to expand various solutions, services, and partnerships that allow creators and brands to freely launch their own fandom business in any field,” said Steve Seo, co-CEO of bemyfriends. “We propose a new paradigm that can create and expand the creator economy, including a strategic partnership with ALTAVA Group, and create an environment where anyone can become a subject in their own fandom. We will expand the development of fandom business solutions and integrated services for IP holders.”
