Actress, model, singer, dancer, and acclaimed host Yassi Pressman can now add another title to her list of accolades: tech founder. The 27-year-old is gearing up to launch a new play-to-earn platform in the Philippines. Yassi was inspired to venture into the tech world with Players Elite Guild (PEG) in order to help Filipinos earn more in the web3 economy.
PEG invites its community members into an inclusive business culture that promotes self-improvement and unity, while focusing on sharing the educational tools that target the individual opportunities that exist for community members to use Web3.0 to develop financial freedom for themselves and their families.
Yassi explained that her new venture will help all types of gamers have the greatest experience possible: “For example, the platform’s features will help professionalize and stabilize the income of full-time players, while reducing the learning curve – and friction – of casual players who wish to dabble in different games.”
“Our platform will cater to gamers from all backgrounds. “We want to show that P2E – like ecommerce – can be for every Filipino forward-thinking enough to give the space a try,” she adds, noting that they also want to build winning relationships with game developers, game operators, and other industry stakeholders.
Yassi and the rest of the team at PEG share in the deep belief of Global unity. PEG places the future of our youth at the “tip of the spear.”
The PEG Technology Advantage – A Single, Holistic Ecosystem
The technology deployment on the P2E platform is being led by none other than Liezl Pecson, an information technologist, a blockchain architect certified by the Blockchain Council, and one of the foremost experts in Web3 development in the Philippines. Pecson has previously built a decentralized blockchain with national and international implementations, a decentralized internet, and even the first fiat mobile wallet built atop a blockchain.
Pecson’s aspirations for the functionality of the P2E platform are no less ambitious.
“Our development is guided entirely by the needs of our users – in this case, both gamers and game developers. For game developers, we’re enabling them to incorporate P2E models right into their ecosystem with a full suite of tools. For gamers, we’re enabling them to do what they do best: have fun while earning,” explains Liezl.
For the security of both parties, Liezl explains that the platform will be secured via BLOX, a decentralized blockchain that will help process and validate transactions via smart contracts executed via their own token. This will ensure that both game developers and gamers can safely and confidently transact, enabling both to better focus on the heart of the gaming experience.
Yassi gravitated toward BLOX as opposed to other global blockchains, because it has earned significant traction recently, including selection as a blockchain of choice from a variety of local business leaders, such as JCash CEO Emil Banno, who chose it for his ventures with Japanese investors; and the crypto marketplace Coexstar.
Yassi also appreciated that BLOX, like PEG, is inherently democratic. Filipinos can participate in the success of BLOX by mining BLX, its native token, on their Mac or PC. Doing so rewards miners with BLX, which will be publicly listed in August on Coexstar, which is licensed by both the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) and Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).
“It’s rare for Filipinos to get the opportunity to participate in the broader success of an ecosystem. That’s why I would encourage them to mine BLX from their desktop. By mining, they gain a foothold in the future of BLX, PEG, and indeed the very foundation of Web3.0 in the Philippines,” says Yassi, adding that mining can be a lucrative income stream for Filipinos who partake in the activity.
