Ditto x Web3
Web3 companies of all shapes and sizes trust Ditto to not only know their space and audiences, but produce quality work time after time. Having been working with crypto projects since 2017, Ditto has a deep knowledge and understanding of NFTs, including relationships with reporters, podcast and broadcast producers and more. Ditto leveraged this experience into quality work across the board. Four examples of companies with a focus on Web3 include: thirdweb, a developer tool provider allowing the easy building of Web3 apps, NFTs, marketplaces, DAOs and more that needed help with a funding announcement MakersPlace, the premier NFT marketplace for rare, authentic and curated digital art that needed week to week drop coverage and more InfiniGods, a fun, and free-to-play Web3 gaming universe founded by former DGN and Facebook executives that needed help with its launch Unstoppable Domains, the #1 provider of NFT domains that required Ditto’s full capabilities. Each company, at different stages of their respective journeys, needed Ditto to increase awareness and visibility. Each needed a cohesive voice and continuous attention in the media, whether in print, on social media or broadcast, as well as through well written published content. The Ditto team's challenge was to set these NFT companies apart from a crowded field.
Ditto worked with each company by developing a comprehensive strategy complete with deep messaging, content and social and digital guidance. When applicable, Ditto led the charge on media relations to elevate each company’s presence and line of sight in the NFT world.
Ditto leveraged news trends and developed storylines to secure coverage in top media outlets, submitted and won awards in outlets like Fast Company and Fortune, attended and staffed major events like SXSW and Consensus and more to continuously put these companies at the forefront of the industry.
Each company can now boast significant pieces of coverage and widespread awareness in NFT, top tier and mainstream outlets thanks to Ditto’s extensive knowledge of the space in addition to its relentless PR approach.
The largest producer and seller of NFT domain names, Unstoppable Domains sought to make a name for itself while competitors like Ethereum Name Service dominated headlines. Unstoppable and its chief spokespeople, CEO Matthew Gould and Channel Chief Sandy Carter, have since been in mainstream outlets such as The New York Times, Fast Company, TechCrunch and VentureBeat and been on broadcast television with CNBC at SXSW. Ditto also secured Unstoppable Domains significant coverage during its most recent funding round, which included it being valued at $1 billion.

When MakersPlace approached Ditto in early 2022, the NFT marketplace was looking to distinguish itself among an increasingly competitive space given the rising popularity of NFTs. MakersPlace had all the right pieces of the puzzle to establish itself as the premier NFT marketplace — including A-list partnerships with the likes of Snoop Dogg and Zlatan Ibrahimovic — and a lineup of creative drops that fully demonstrated the artistic potential of NFTs. Since partnering with Ditto, MakersPlace and its CEO, Silicon Valley veteran Craig Palmer, have been featured and quoted in the likes of Vogue Business, Fortune and more.
Founded by UK TV star and serial entrepreneur, Steven Bartlett, thirdweb needed help announcing its $24 million series A to American audiences as well as to top crypto trades. Marketed as a developer toolkit allowing the easy building of web3 apps, NFTs, marketplaces, DAOs and more — think Shopify for Web3 (Shopify was an investor) — thirdweb needed an American spokesperson while Steven focused on UK press. Ditto secured coverage in tier-1 and crypto outlets for US-based co-founder Furqan Rydhan. Ditto built up Rydhan’s executive profile and helped lead thirdweb to a successful series A launch.

InfiniGods approached Ditto as virtual unknowns in the Web3 gaming space. Having announced seed funding, the company needed to ramp up and officially launch to the public. Ditto brought InfiniGods out of stealth to formally introduce it to the Web3 gaming world in advance of its full game launch. Ditto has led a month-over-month proactive media strategy securing high-profile coverage and interviews across InfiniGods’ target verticals, from a feature in GamesBeat, which was their top target, and interviews with The Block and Blockworks.
