UnionDigital Bank, the digital entity of Union Bank, and Nexplay, the leading SEA Esports and video game content ecosystem signed an exclusive partnership that aims to offer convenient digital financial services to Filipino gamers.
“UnionDigital Bank is driven to further empower the Philippines’ digital economy. Our partnership with Nexplay allows us to offer our financial services to today’s Filipino gamers, enabling them more by giving access to a digital bank account. We are looking forward to this collaboration with Nexplay to propel our higher purpose – Tech-ing Up today’s generation of Filipinos, especially gamers,”-Arvie De Vera, Co-Founder and CEO of UnionDigital Bank
UnionDigital Bank sees an opportunity to empower Filipino gamers by providing more accessible financial solutions not limited to traditional deposit accounts and debit cards as cashless payment methods grow in due to the rest of cryptocurrency NFT games and partly due to the pandemic. De Vera continued, “Nexplay opens opportunities for us to engage our country’s digital natives in platforms they are quite familiar with: games. This is particularly important if you consider the rise of play-to-earn gaming and content streaming in the Philippines,”
“For Nexplay, our mission has always been helping gamers succeed. Working with UnionDigital Bank will help crystallize this combined vision of making financial services more accessible to our massive gaming community, our fans, our teams and our talents to enrich their digital experience. Together, we are committed to encourage greater financial inclusion within the rapidly growing gaming community in the Philippines, especially the next-generation gamers.”-Gabriel Paulo Benito, Co-Founder and CEO of Nexplay
