WOOOBA For Rewarding Grassroots Sports Players

WOOOBA, a social sports technology company that gives global grassroots sports players a free platform to connect and manage their active basketball life, and soon football/soccer, has partnered with blockchain experts, Blockpool, to launch a cryptocurrency for rewarding and inspiring the casual athlete.

Starting with setting up a Player Profile, as well as a player's Wallet for peer to peer payments (in which game "organisers" get paid back from friends) the platform aims to connect more players with each other, as well as places to play, in order to boost the access and visibility in grassroots basketball and very soon, football/soccer. With the support of Blockpool, the blockchain company behind Bjork's cryptocurrency music launch, the new cryptocurrency, WOOOBux (WBX) can offer brands, schools, parents and players alike, an easy way to inspire and reward more active play.

WOOOBA's mission is to help people of all abilities play more sports. 

The WOOOBux (WBX) Token Sale is now underway until October 31st.

How OpSec Security is using Blockpool technology to combat counterfeiting in the apparel sector.

OpSec Security - the global leader in protecting, authenticating, and enhancing brands - partnered with Blockpool to develop secure blockchain data provenance solutions for brands and apparel manufacturers.

This partnership combines OpSec's tamper-proof RFID tags with Blockpool technology to enhance OpSec's track and trace solutions and enable unique customer engagement strategies. 

OpSec's tamper-proof RFID tags get sewn into the labels of branded apparel and merchandise which are then scanned by custodians through each stage of the supply chain. A historical record of information about the item such as its locations, custodians, and arrival/departure times is tracked and immutably recorded on a Blockpool-powered blockchain to verify product ownership, prove product authenticity, and improve supply chain efficiency.

Another project under development at OpSec creates unique customer engagement experiences for brands in the music industry and the apparel sector. After purchasing official merchandise or clothing secured with OpSec labels, customers register the product's tag or QR code online to get rewarded with unique perks and incentives.
