JET8 has announced the launch of a partnership with online investment platform and CN&CO partner, EasyEquities. Users of JET8 apps across South Africa are now able to redeem EasyEquities vouchers for fractional shares in companies listed on the JSE using their JETPoints they received when creating branded content and engaging audiences on social media.

Users create branded content on apps created with JET8 Technology which is available on the Google Play Store and the iOS App Store to customise their photos and videos with branded Geo-stickers and Geo-frames, and earn points (‘JETPoints’) for every in-app like, comment, and share, as well as for cross-posting onto external social networks. JETPoints can be used to redeem EasyEquities vouchers in JET8’s in-app Store and then use these vouchers on the EasyEquities platform to invest.

JET8 recently announced the World’s First Social Wallet. The JET8 Wallet is designed to give users a safe, seamless and pleasant experience. The JET8 Wallet’s use of blockchain technology makes it a secure custodian app for those wanting to safe-keep their J8T tokens, earn rewards, and buy real-life products.

JET8 app users can also redeem other products online or over-the-counter across more than 2 500 retail stores in South Africa.

JETPoints earned on the following apps: TaxiCAM, ICEcam, Maties Cam, AfriSelfie, Fotoku, MoMo ZA, Madiba Moments, GardenDay CAM, UJ Cam, UKZN Cam, UDUBS, IKEYS, Rodhent and JET8 Wallet APP can be used to purchase EasyEquities vouchers.

EasyEquities CEO, Charles Savage says: “We are delighted to be working on this exciting new initiative with JET8. The relationship with JET8 represents a powerful opportunity for EasyEquities to achieve our goals around the democratization of share ownership and investments for all.”

JET8 Africa managing director, Gerjo Hoffman says: “South Africans can now post selfies from their favourite brands, share these selfies on social media and earn JETPoints and use these JETPoints to get an EasyEquity voucher and redeem this voucher on EasyEquities’ platform and even buy a fractional share of their favourite brand. This is the first step to offer South Africans financial products on the JET8 platforms.”

JET8 apps are available to download from the Google Play Store and the iOS App Store.
