Fandom Sports Media (FDM) has begun open-source integrations of its e-sports prediction platform with Chinese “super app” WeChat.

First released in 2011, WeChat is a Chinese multi-purpose app, often described as the Asian nation’s “app for everything”. The app provides text messaging, ridesharing, government services, video conferencing, social media, video games, content and location sharing, mobile payment, and other similar capabilities.

WeChat has over 1.1 billion monthly active users, the majority of which are located in China. With such a massive audience, the app will be a strong avenue for facilitating the launch of Fandom’s all-ages e-sports prediction platform to the Chinese market.

Fandom Sports is currently working on a number of software integrations, including single sign-ons, user and account management, QR code scanning, unique identifiers, image uploads, content sharing, and WeChat payments.

Fandom Sports Media’s Chairman, Philip Chen, said the company is continuing to deliver features and functions that localised markets are demanding.

“The scope of work outlined above should support our broad market outreach plans to partners, influencers, and ultimately Esports fans and community members. I’m excited to see our platform developments mature and proceed forward,” he added.

In other news, Fandom Sports announced the immediate resignation of Jonson Sun from the company’s Board of Directors. The company thanked Jonson for his time and efforts on the Board, and wished him well in his ongoing and future endeavours.

The news has coincided with a mass selloff of Fandom Sports Media shares, which have now fallen 35.7 per cent and are currently valued at C$0.09 per share.
