London, September 21 — H3RO3S, the world's first real-life play-to-earn platform, today announced it had closed an oversubscribed seed and private round of funding. CEO Gregory Crous shared, "the initial response to the project has been overwhelming. Both, the seed and private rounds were oversubscribed. Early investors in the project include Gains Associates, CSP DAO, Carl Runefelt, and Evan Luthra, amongst others."
Built primarily for university students, H3RO3S allows users to request and complete tasks. The peer-to-peer platform uses an AI-driven talent-based matching system to connect users. Once users complete tasks, they receive tokens that can be redeemed by purchasing products from the companies listed on H3RO3S. In order to leverage the targeted affiliate companies, H3RO3S aims to build its community with 100,000 registered users initially.
Another need the H3RO3S app intends to address is the need for engagement in post-COVID university communities. The student experience has been greatly diminished by the pandemic, with gatherings being replaced by distancing. H3RO3S lets friends and strangers interact safely while providing opportunities for one another. It also presents a chance to get out and visit a business to redeem points. While this might have once seemed mundane, it is almost a vacation to those who have endured lockdowns.
"With H3RO3S, we want to give the power back in the hands of the students to work, earn, and spend seamlessly. The aim is also to leverage big data and create a cohesive affiliate marketing environment across universities," stated Evan Luthra, leading blockchain expert, angel investor, and advisor - H3RO3S.
H3RO3S is the first P2P platform in the world to introduce crypto payments for its users. H3RO3S's #1 goal is to be represented in all universities, while the long-term vision is to connect students with local brands and companies to revolutionize the traditional marketing system.
The expansion plans do not stop there as H3RO3S has goals of branching into Australia, New Zealand, and the United States. They hope to include businesses like venues, movie premieres, networking events, and conferences into their affiliate network, plus serve as a new sort of advertising for universities. By implementing H3RO3S to every campus in the UK, users are incentivized to attend specific universities based on the local H3RO3S microeconomy.
Gregory Crous quips, "we've created a brilliant marketing system that seamlessly combines an intelligent crypto network, a student gig economy, and targeted advertising for local businesses." With a degree in International Relations and having pitched H3RO3S to the international business community at the World Economic Forum, Crous states that there is an upward slope in the decentralized payments market, and H3RO3S is poised to reach the pinnacle of this growth.
