The Digital Collectibles Journal became aware of the Ecomi licensed crypto collectibles project back in December 2019. Their main goal was to create a digital collectibles platform that required no prior knowledge of blockchain tech or crypto currency. It looks like they are about to be successful at just that, with internal beta testing underway as of this writing.
We were impressed by their concept of using fiat currency to purchase a stable crypto token called Gems that never lose value in order to purchase digital blockchain collectibles on their upcoming Collect app. Ecomi also has a native cryptocurrency, called OMI Tokens. These separate from gems and will fluctuate in price based on market activity. As an altcoin, it will be interesting to see what this digital currency does on open exchanges. You can learn more about how the Ecomi economy works here.
Ecomi had boasted of bringing on some big licenses with which to launch their marketplace. Apparently, they aren’t playing around, because what we have just recently learned is going to change the digital blockchain collectibles game. They hired Alfred R. Kahn.
While Kahn isn't a household name, I do know who he is and he has had quite an effect on many households for decades. The marketing and licensing guru has been behind the mass distribution of many iconic franchises such as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. But what he's most famous for was bringing Pokemon to North America. To say that was a success is a major understatement. He was successful in importing Yu-Gi-Oh from Japan, as well.
So, yes, digital collectibles enthusiasts, you need to take Ecomi seriously. You can't beat Kahn's track record. If he can deliver high-caliber brands to the nascent Ecomi marketplace, watch out.
Ecomi already has their own hardware crypto wallet, too, called the Secure Wallet. Not only will this be a great way to protect your Ecomi collectibles, but it already has support for popular cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, Ethereum, Ripple, Litecoin and Bitcoin Cash, with EOS, USDT and ERC20 support coming soon. Talk about bringing crypto even more into the mainstream!
It only gets better. Not only will collectibles you purchase be shown in your own personal Showroom and shareable on Social Media, you can even interact with them in AR (Augmented Reality). We hope to see how the value of their cryptocurrency will help back their collectibles. Ecomi runs on the Ethereum compatible Go Chain network, which will help eliminate the sometimes high transaction costs on the main Ethereum blockchain network.
You can watch their official video on how the Collect app will work. The Digital Collectibles Journal is excited about the Ecomi platform and we will be covering it closely. Stay tuned for more coverage.
