PLATFORM WILL DEBUT WITH CMON’S FIRST EVER LINE OF DIGITAL COLLECTIBLES AND MARKS THE COMPANY’S FIRST VENTURE INTO BLOCKCHAIN
SINGAPORE — September 1st, 2021 — CMON LTD and Monsoon Digital announced a partnership to launch a brand new series of digital products and promotional material using Monsoon’s soon-to-launch NFT (non-fungible token) trading platform. Slated to go live later this year, Monsoon will be the exclusive platform for CMON digital collectible items, cards, artwork, and games, the first offerings of which aim to further build upon CMON’s reputation as a leader and pioneer in the gaming industry.
“The overall potential of NFTs adds a brand-new dimension to the hobby, game and collectible markets, one that we’re extremely excited to explore with Monsoon Digital,” said Chern Ann Ng, CEO of CMON. “The goal of Monsoon is to provide collectors, art fans, and gamers with a stable and secure online home where they can organize, display, buy, sell and trade their digitally owned blockchain. It’s designed from the ground up to be tailor made for these particular fanbases, so that creators can design and launch products that are innovative and consumer-specific.”
Monsoon Digital will launch the public beta of its platform later this year, with CMON’s first wave of digital collectible packs set to be the site’s flagship product. Details of the first wave are being kept under wraps.
“While this is absolutely a breakout year for NFTs, we were determined to do something different and unique with the blockchain technology,” said Geoff Skinner, CMON’s SVP of Marketing & Entertainment. “As it is with our tabletop games, our focus is on the customer. The goals we set for this new collector experience are simple: it has to be easy to use and accessible, it has to offer a special, personalized experience, and most importantly, it has to be fun. To these ends, we’re working with our top game designers, graphic designers and artists to create our first blockchain product on Monsoon’s incredible platform.”
CMON has been trendsetting in the gaming industry ever since 2012 when it launched its first crowd-funded game on Kickstarter, the on-line platform where the company is the #1 fundraiser across all categories, raising over $72 million from 48 successful campaigns.
To celebrate the launch, CMON will be giving many of its 100,000+ Kickstarter backers the chance to receive free NFT airdrops when Monsoon goes live.
