Mumbai, November 2022: The ReelStar app, India’s most advanced Web3 integrated social media platform, announced that it has raised over USD 5 mn from the Initial Token Offering (ITO) of its utility token ReelToken (REELT). ReelToken is based on a multi-blockchain platform and architecture. It uses the Polygon (MATIC) and Binance Smart Chain (BSC) extensible to multiple blockchain networks.
ReelStar is an ‘everything app’ with integrated multiple social media, Web3, and payment functionalities. It features in-app tailor-made NFT creation features, Smart Contract customization, and an NFT Marketplace in an easy-to-use Android and/or iOS environment. The app provides creators (at any level) with the needed in-app tools and global access to consumers other without requiring large budgets or technical knowledge. This will democratize and level the playing field for User Generated Content (UGC). Best of all every creator can easily monetize their content!
Well-known industry leaders attended an event, ReelTalk, in Melbourne, Australia organized by Reel Star. Topics presented and discussed included Web3 integration with social media and its importance as a game changer for the media and entertainment industry especially relevant to India but with global application.
Former Indian cricketer, Irfan Pathan, was just one of the celebrities that graced the event where Navdeep & Nick the Co-Founders of ReelGroup were excited to reveal the logos of ReelStar, ReelToken & ReelPay. The philosophy behind the logo was revealed; the Reel Mark is formed using the alphabet R enclosed in a square with 2 sharp edges and 2 rounded edges. The sharp edges stood for the group’s commitment to transparency & fairness while the rounded corners stood for politeness & adaptability to the future world. These all underpin each company’s user-centric values and approach.
Speaking, at the event, after a successful ITO, Co-Founder, Navdeep Sharma, said, “ReelStar aims to energize and reinvigorate the global media and entertainment industry. Our app will provide a global platform for creators thereby enabling a positive network of communities that inspire connection, collaboration, and inclusion. Our UVP lies in our seamlessness and our easy-to-use platform that is accessible to almost everyone to create, collect, trade, and monetize an exciting array of NFTs and User Generated Content.”
