Sanrio Partners with Dapper Labs and Tibles to Create an Aggretsuko Experience for FansTuesday, November 15, 2022
Vancouver, BC, November 15, 2022--(T-Net)--Dapper Labs announced that Aggretsuko Tibles, an officially-licensed digital collecting experience by Tibles Inc. and Dapper Labs, now offer a Sanrio property tailored for the fans.
Aggretsuko Tibles' digital trading cards, minted on the Flow blockchain, aim to give users app-exclusive Aggretsuko content, featuring Retsuko and other friends and characters inspired by the world of Aggretsuko and the animated series. The interactive cards flip to reveal exclusive character content, trivia, animations, and other original artwork, expanding value and experiences.
Sanrio is exploring new ways to interact with Aggretsuko characters and give fans another experience to tap into the world of digital collectibles and innovative storytelling.
Sanrio joins a suite of other family brands building on Flow, the most eco-friendly major blockchain, according to the company.
"This is an exciting moment for the global Aggretsuko community," said Mickey Maher, Senior Vice President of Partnerships at Dapper Labs. "The fan experience is expanding to encompass a new digital, ownable dimension, built on Flow, that opens fresh opportunities to express that fandom and engage with the broader community."
The Aggretsuko Tibles experience has launched on iOS in the Apple App Store, as well as on desktop and mobile browsers for fans in the U.S. and Canada. In the web version, fans can buy and open new packs, organize and display their collections for other collectors to see, and rank on the leaderboards once completing a set.
The peer-to-peer marketplace, exclusively on web, enables collectors to use Dapper wallet and FLOW tokens to buy and sell digital trading cards. Other expanded social features in the iOS mobile app include community forums, private chats, friending, gifting, and free barter trading. Consistent with other Tibles' projects, participating won't break the bank - general release packs will start at just $4.99.
"The Aggretsuko fan base is a passionate one, and we're excited to be able to launch on both iOS and web right out of the gate," said Erich Wood (a.k.a. Woody), CEO of Tibles. "The fans are always at the center of the experiences we create, and we are always looking for more ways for them to engage with each other on the Tibles platform."
This is Tibles' third digital collectibles project built for fans to collect more of what they love and create a community around a shared passion.
