Happy to finally announce this thing we’ve been working on for a while. It’s the ‘Echoke Social Token’. Everyday, millions of fans create value that is captured by a few execs in a boardroom. Not any more. We’re giving the power back to the fans.
He added that holders of the token will get free access to giveaways, NFTs, backstage passes, jobs, festivals, exclusive merchandise, media, and hospitality benefits.
Partnership With Crypto Company
