Leading Philippine e-wallet, GCash, is setting out to make Filipinos’ investment journey more fun and easier to understand with the GStocks Game powered by EasyEquities.
The game can be accessed in the GCash app and lets newbie investors learn and practice investing in the US stock market without worrying about losing any money.
Available until August 4, 2023, the GStocks Game is a trial feature in preparation for the launch of GStocks Global.
“As a pioneering investment company, EasyEquities has seen firsthand how investing is the best wealth creation strategy for all ages. We are grateful and excited to be partnering with GCash to bring a game that can motivate, educate, and excite their unmatched user base in the Philippines and promote financial inclusivity throughout the country. We believe Filipinos are ready for it,” said Rish Tandapany, President, EasyEquities Philippines
“The partnership of two market-defining fintech companies can help revolutionize the investment landscape in the Philippines by making it a more accessible and friendly activity for everyone,” said Jong Layug, GCash Head of Wealth Management.
To get started, GCash users can simply activate their account in the app by going to the “view all” icon on the app’s main dashboard, go to the ‘Enjoy’ section, and find the GStocks Game.
Users will then be given ‘play money’ worth $10,000 every week. The GStocks Game starts every Monday where gamers have the opportunity to compete for the highest gains in their portfolio and climb up the leaderboard.
The challenges end every Friday where 15 players have the chance to take home cash prizes. The top players will win P10,000; P7,500 for the second place winners; and P5,000 for the third placers. The 4th to 15th placers will also receive cash prizes.
As users play and learn about investing, they can also collect badges for everyone in the game to see, such as “15% Performance Growth”, “Winner of Game Week”, “Portfolio Diversification”, “Top 100 Game Week”, “My First Trade”, and many more!
