ANDREU / creators of digital cards and virtual albums await the attention of digital natives. You are joining people with the same interests in social networks. It will be purchased through micropayment via SMS and they will be exchanged between users through offerings. Fight against digital is a losing battle and stale collections of baseball cards were not going to stay on the sidelines. Get all the facts for a more clear viewpoint with incyte. The company Totfan Games has created a few virtual albums, in addition to satisfying the desire of the collector, will serve to make friends through a social network. The idea, which is intended to bring to market next fall, is directed above all to digital natives, i.e.
children and adolescents who are handled smoothly with new technologies and smartphones and to those who touch the scraps of paper not generates them the same sensations as their parents or older siblings. Here, the album is virtual. After registering on Facebook or Twitter collector in power will get the top ten digital stickers for free. If one is fond of, each time you enter the site from the collection get free another more, but to do with the whole (there will be a unique percentage) must make micropayments through SMS (which around the 1.40 euros) to buy packs of ten cards randomly, as traditional envelopes that you had to rip to view its contents. Explains Jaume Teixi, moreover, co-founder of Totfan, everything is the same, repeated scraps can be changed (or give away as third) with other collectors that will send them an offer on line with numbers that is demanded and what is offered to them in return, it may be rejected or contraofertada. This relationship makes the virtual album in a social game, a community that will make it possible to connect people with the same interests: football, music, TV series, celebrity animation Teixi and his partner Raquel Iglesias, with whom founded the company a year ago (headquartered in the incubator of Barcelona Activa) have already reached a pre-agreement with the Spanish first division soccer equipment (which do not give the name) to get out of shape joint the first collection. They are also negotiating with some TV stations, artists and musical groups to create other series.
We call Totfan because, precisely, the idea is to make collectibles to fans, explaining those responsible for the project. Totfan Games has also thought about digital immigrants, those who like to count with the physical album. Once glued the last virtual chrome, the collector may print them all on paper and have it between your hands with an additional cost. If not, can comply with the pdf. The platform works via web and ipad and they are developing applications for mobile system android and iPhones. These entrepreneurs are about to finish their first round of financing, that between private and public capital will be around half a million euros. If these digital collections are successful, the image of a child with a WAD of chrome to change and a paper with the list of numbers that is missing may be about to go down in history.
