A live wire on the cricket field, a leader who has led the Tamilnadu cricket team to multiple trophies including the latest Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy, and a consistent run maker Dinesh Karthik’s popularity has been on the rise in the last few years. He has been signed as the brand ambassador for the 4-month-old start-up Rage.Fan.
This partnership is the first time ever a blockchain project is onboarding a brand ambassador who is a playing cricketer and an ex-captain and current VC of IPL winning club (Kolkata Knight Riders) in India. Such actions are important in mainstreaming crypto platforms to change the whole view about cryptocurrency in India.
Rage.Fan will be bringing in a lot of exciting opportunities for crypto & fantasy sports fans. They will be one among the first to offer players a chance to acquire action cards as NFTs to earn more rewards in the game. Rage.Fan has also developed an AR-based token hunt app, Scramble, where players can collect the native $Rage tokens, Pokemon Go style.
With Scramble, non-crypto users get a chance to collect tokens and understand the utilities associated with the token. Also on the cards is a Sports Oracle offering reliable and secure off-chain sports data.
“The fit is seamless. We will launch with cricket before moving on to other sports. We expect Dinesh Karthik’s strong brand equity to be the perfect launchpad for Rage.Fan” said A Satheesh CEO & co-founder of Rage.Fan.
“Fans are an important part of any sport. They can literally lift a whole team from the brink of defeat to become a winner. That’s one of the reasons I admire what Rage.Fan wants to do for the fantasy sports enthusiast” said the wicketkeeper-batsman.
Rage.Fan has recently raised $1.6 Million from Leading investors. They also sold uNFTs worth $180,000 in under 4 minutes on the Bondly platform.
