Philippine-based crypto wallet Coins.ph announced a partnership with Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) veteran Jared Dilinger to produce “Courtside Crypto,” a series of educational videos and social media engagements to empower basketball fans and Filipinos to take control of their finances.
According to Coins.ph, Dillinger’s “Courtside Crypto” will be available on TikTok, YouTube, and the official Instagram channels of Coins (@coinsph) and Jared Dillinger (@jdaredevil2).
“The videos will explain some of the basic concepts around cryptocurrencies, NFTs, and other digital assets, with the first episode scheduled to kick off in the first week of October,” the e-wallet added. “Fans and followers will also get a look inside the everyday life of a PBA player and a chance to interact with Dillinger online and ask questions about his experiences as a professional athlete and crypto investor.”
“Jared is the perfect person to lead our newest educational outreach efforts because he knows these technologies himself and is deeply embedded in the Web3 community,” said Wei Zhou, the Coins.ph’s chief executive officer (CEO).
Dillinger, aside from being a 14-season veteran of the Asia’s oldest basketball league, with eight championship titles and stints with the National Team is also a crypto and non-fungible token (NFT) enthusiast and influencer.
“We are all aware of the steep learning curve that beginners go through in their crypto journeys,” the former Gilas wingman said. “I strongly believe crypto and Web3 are the new digital eras we are moving towards, and there is no better time than now to start learning and exploring.”
Last month, Dilinger also partnered with esports and gaming agency Tier One. Tier One hinted that it is entering the crypto industry last July, then revealed its plan on its web3 venture a month after.
It was second quarter of this year when Coins.ph revealed that it has become the official crypto partner of PBA.
As of the moment, the mobile wallet clarified that Courtside Crypto, though being an educational video series about crypto, “is separately launched” with Coins Academy, a collection of educational resources on its website earlier this year.
“Coins strengthens this relationship through ongoing collaborations with popular and influential PBA players like Dillinger, whose involvement will help increase fans’ awareness of crypto and Web3,” Coins.ph concluded.
