When it comes to education, one of the big ideas in the digital omniverse is gamification.Using techniques such as Programmed Learning Sessions (that run more like games than lectures) to Virtual and Augmented Reality, everyone from educators to event planners are making classrooms and events more compelling by presenting content in formats that feel like games.
Which makes the technology a match for AiTrades as the company strives to increase engagement of new Members with the cryptocurrency markets.
Gamification Is Not “Recreation” but a “Refined Business Experience”
AiTrades launched its gamified platform at its Asia Conference in Phuket. That introduction culminated with the placement of stand-alone ATMs in the Philippines.
“Engagement really has gone through the roof with this program!” says Corporate Communications Officer Mark Davis. “AiTrades is striving to become a leader in applications and technology that invest our Members in the process of business rather than just the acquisition of knowledge. Whereas we used to give people packets full of papers and pins and pens they might never look at, the gamification of information dissemination and acquisition is engaging in ways we have not been able to achieve before. For that reason, we don’t regard this Gamification approach to be recreational,but a refined business experience.”
As evidence that Davis’s enthusiasm is justified, more than 75% of conference attendees downloaded and actually used the virtual and augmented reality program that introduced them to various conference events; which is much the same way the program will introduce and educate Members to AiTrades processes and the fundamentals of cryptocurrency.
Whether they are using an Android or an Apple iOS device, all that is required is to use an assigned browser: the technology and programming all are in the cloud.
“You play and learn through the program by moving your phone: it’s animated by the phone’s internal gyroscope. Virtual Reality. Augmented Reality. Rewards and Leader Board competition. We use it all, and it involves our Members in exciting ways that make not only data retrieval less cumbersome, but also puts retention on steroids.”
AiTrades Cryptomatic ATMs Installed in Philippines
That same principal of engagement is fundamental to the AiTrades placement of a dozen ATMs in the Philippines, making access to cryptocurrency more immediate and user-friendly. That’s important to AiTrades, because AiTrades is training new Members relatively unfamiliar with the new digital economy. For these Members, the proprietary software available through the AiTrades Portable Desktop ATM and the Cryptomatic ATMs initially being installed in the Philippines are not only fast and efficient, but user-friendly in ways AiTrades intends for its engagement with Members to be unique.
“This Member-friendly approach really translates well culturally,” says CCO Mark Davis, “which is especially important to us because of the several countries in which we do business. With this approach, we can start local, then go regional and, eventually, global.”
