Collectibles have existed throughout human history and today they come in many forms, such as trading cards, figurines, comics, and toys. In fact, some of the world’s tops grossing brands, such as Pokémon and Star Wars have seen a majority of their sales come from their collectible counterparts. Now, with the virtual goods market/revenue expected to reach more than $100bn in the next 5 years, the collectibles industry is poised to change for the better, and through ECOMI Collect, collectibles are about to go digital!

What is ECOMI Collect?

ECOMI Collect is an application that allows users to buy, sell and trade premium licensed, digital collectibles and other related virtual goods.

With 15 of the worlds top brands and licenses already confirmed, and another 15 expected by the time the app launches, ECOMI Collect is primed to create an entirely new, digital experience and serve the next generation of collect-o-mania.

Moreover, thanks to the experience and acumen of ECOMI CEO David Yu, and Head of Licensing acquisition Al Kahn, ECOMI will continue to capture the premium end of the digital collectibles market, covering television series, movies, animation, gaming, evergreen characters, and digital art.

“Our intention is to create a true digital collectible industry, where both kids and adults will find a new obsession, as we enter the digital realm” — David Yu, CEO
