Happy Verse Day!
Last Friday, we celebrated our very special #VerseDay, and we wanted to do it in style. That’s why we gave away €10,000 to Verse users!
To do the give away, we teamed up with some of our favorite online influencers. Each influencer was at a special location in Barcelona to give out the money. They also live-streamed the event on Instagram, Snapchat, and Periscope.
Social media stars Gigi Vives, Alba Paul, Alex Domenech, and The Tripletz (@sergipedrero and @lucloren) did an awesome job of rallying their fans on social media to join #VerseDay. All the fans had to do was download the Verse app, enter the invitation code from their favorite influencer, and show up at the special location.
The influencers gave out the money by sending it to the winners’ Verse accounts. A few lucky attendees won €1,000 prizes!
On top of that, one of the influencers won a trip to New York! Alba Paul was the lucky one who walked away with the prize. She thanked her fans on Instagram, saying “Thank you to everyone who was there and everyone who wasn’t tool!!! I feel incredibly lucky!!
We feel incredibly lucky, too. #VerseDay was a huge success, and we couldn’t have asked for a better way to celebrate. A giant thank-you to the influencers who helped us out, everyone who came to the event, and to all of you!
The Verse Team
