OpTic Gaming in collaboration with JET8, a Singapore based esports media and entertainment organization, has released a social media mobile application called ‘OpTic Snap’ today on 17th September. 

The social media app is designed to connect OpTic’s active fan community known as ‘The Greenwall’, no matter where they are around the world. The app can be downloaded for free via the Google Play Store and is currently available for android users only.


The Application 

‘OpTic Snap’ allows OpTic Gaming’s fans to share their favorite moments in the form of a picture or a short video across all major social media platforms, and the users even earn rewards for doing so.  

The app users can earn JETS currency as rewards. This currency can be earned through in-app likes, comments and shares, which can then be redeemed in-exchange for official OpTic Gaming Merchandise.


Rewards 

The OpTic Gaming merchandise is not limited to wristbands and pins but run the gamut of valuable offerings including an OpTic Pro Hoodie, Player Jacket, Pterodactyl Scallop Tee and a lot more. 

All that the fans need to do to participate is keep doing what they are already so good at – being loud, passionate and proud members of the Greenwall.


Joshua Thomson, JET8 Founder and Chief Strategy Officer, shares a few words saying: 

Esports fans are passionate about their favorite teams, and spend a huge amount of time creating and sharing social media content. JET8 allows ‘OpTic Snap’ to reward their fans for this support and turn them into paid micro-influencers, building a powerful community where both the brand and its fans share in value. 

Romain Bigeard, OpTic Gaming General Manager, adds on the topic saying that: 

This isn’t just an opportunity for us to give back to the fans that have loyally supported the organization for years. t’s a way for us to help them get even better connected with each other as well, forging tighter bonds and an even more vibrant fan culture.

Projecting his thoughts, Jesal Parekh, OpTic Gaming International Development Manager says, 

A company like JET8 will be pivotal for us to develop fan engagement throughout the eastern hemisphere. Our hope is that OpTic Snap will be a key platform for our now-global community to engage with each other. This is just the first of many initiatives to better serve our fans in the region.
