West Palm Beach, FL, Aug. 29, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — OpenLocker Inc. a subsidiary of Descrypto Holdings, Inc., (“Descrypto” or the “Company” OTC: DSRO) is excited to celebrate the Travers Stakes win by Epicenter, who was runner up in this year’s Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes. This was an amazing accomplishment of winning the Grade I Travers Stakes and cementing the lead as the top 3-year-old colt in the country on his way to competing in the Breeder’s Cup Classic. We are offering an opportunity to share the ride.
The company launched its OpenStable fan-friendly Web3 and blockchain technology platform in April leading up to the Triple Crown racing season to engage existing and the next generation of thoroughbred racing fans. Ownership of an NFT allows entry into an exclusive community with access to a portal for exclusive content, autographed collectibles, memorabilia and experiences so fans can follow a horse over the course of its career.
OpenLocker connects the digital and the physical worlds by offering real world utility and delivering a physical card of ownership to fans who purchase a digital collectible on its platform. The limited-edition platinum cards are wallet-sized, metal collectible cards that are hand-signed and feature the digital art on one side and QR code on the back which directs to the digital viewer. Platinum cards featuring Epicenter are signed by one of Epicenter’s connections: Ron Winchell, owner, Steve Asmussen, trainer or Joel Rosario, jockey.
OpenLocker randomly selected one Epicenter NFT owner, Randy McLeod from Pittsfield, MA, to be an invited guest in the paddock before the Travers Stakes. McLeod was also delighted to be allowed to join Epicenter’s connections in the Winner’s Circle afterwards. He said, “I had the time of my life, literally. I want to thank OpenLocker for making this an unbelievable day.”
Howard Gostfrand, CEO of Descrypto stated, “I had the incredible opportunity to be in Saratoga to witness Epicenter win the historic Travers Stakes. To be able to deliver our Epicenter NFT holders with a victory of this magnitude elevates the connectivity and engagement for this sport that was the inspiration for OpenStable from the start.” said Howard Gostfrand, CEO of Descrypto.
“It is so important that the industry supports innovative ideas that help grow, develop and engage a new generation of racing consumers,” said Epicenter owner, Ron Winchell of Winchell Thoroughbreds LLC. He continued “The platform brings that once in a lifetime experience to the fan who can’t invest in a horse but wants a real connection to the sport.”
