Buddy Link, the next-generation referral marketing and engagement hub, today announced its official global launch at the Solana Breakpoint conference held in Amsterdam, NL. Built on the Solana network, Buddy Link aims to revolutionize web3 engagement with the platform now open to businesses and users worldwide for sign-up.
Built on a fully on-chain referral and attribution infrastructure, the platform acts as a social discovery hub for users, while serving as a cross-referral and attribution protocol that connects influencers, projects, affiliates, and investors. Since its initial stealth launch to a closed user base five months ago, Buddy Link has already completed five successful integrations, linked over 2,000 users, distributed over $100,000 in rewards, and seen more than $1 million USD in marketplace volume generated by its user community.
Aidan Neil, Co-CEO, Buddy Link, said: “Buddy Link is designed as a B2B2C distribution platform. We leverage the speed of the Solana network to seamlessly connect businesses with each other and their customers. Our vision is to create a future where projects can easily reward users for helping them grow. That spirit of working together and receiving a fair reward for your efforts is core to the web3 ethos. With the launch of Buddy Link, we are one step closer to realizing that future.”
Buddy Link offers businesses a new way to engage and retain customers through white-labeled acquisition and retention tools such as referrals, loyalty systems, and gamification tools. While on the user side, anyone can use Buddy Link as a discovery hub to find referral and loyalty programs.
Star Atlas is one decentralized application which has already integrated with Buddy Link and expanded its user base through new engagement mechanisms. A Web3-based grand strategy game focused on space exploration, territorial conquest, and political domination, Star Atlas integrated a bespoke shared attribution model from Buddy Link, substantially enhancing the game’s loyalty and rewards system.
Michael Wagner, CEO of ATMTA/Star Atlas, said: “Starpath—our loyalty and rewards program—is now fully powered by Buddy Link and embodies the Star Atlas ethos of excellence and continuous innovation. Our ambition is to set a new standard for the web3 gaming industry and creating a feeling of genuine connection for the player is core to that. Star Atlas’ partnership with Buddy Link delivers more power and rewards to players and ecosystem users, marking a significant stride in the web3 engagement landscape.”
The unveiling of Buddy Connect & Profile, an open-sourced seamless and gasless onboarding solution set for a 2024 release, and the Buddy App, slated for a 2024 release on the Solana dApp Store, iOS, and Android, are keenly anticipated.
