Bragstr Redefines and Repackages Fantasy Sports by Introducing Virtual Currency Betting and a Social Network in a Single Platform

Bragstr.com Launches to Give Sports Fans a Venue to Show Off Their Knowledge, Compete with Friends and Brag About Their Success in a Fun Interactive Experience

Tuesday 30th October 2012

Bragstr is changing the fantasy sports genre by providing fans with a chance to compete, socialize and tout their knowledge of sports. Launching at Bragstr.com, the free site allows players to join leagues with their friends or the community and place fantasy currency wagers on upcoming sports events. Players manage their own virtual bankrolls as they compete against their friends, the Bragstr community and the odds. Social activity and competitive success on the site earns players gold coins, which can be redeemed for real world prizes. “Fans are dying to show off their passion, knowledge and competitive drive — and Bragstr provides the perfect arena in a fun social experience” Bragstr.com is an innovative mix of fantasy sports and social gaming, in which participants can share their stats and playing history with friends and competitors through internal social news feeds, as well as Facebook and Twitter, with more networks to come. Bragstr also gives users the best tools to make their projections by providing live spread and injury information, editorial and news articles. Fans can also contribute to their social news feeds and user blogs to show their knowledge to the entire site. With community at its core, Telligent Community offered the ideal platform from which to start. And, having recognized that the challenge required functionality that had never been attempted before, Bragstr engaged the safe hands of 4 Roads for the full implementation. All the usual Telligent functionality has been implemented throughout, but Bragstr benefits from a number of new innovations. “Fans are dying to show off their passion, knowledge and competitive drive — and Bragstr provides the perfect arena in a fun social experience,” said Jon Knarreborg co-founder and CEO of Bragstr. “Fantasy sports typically focus first on last year’s results and luck – whomever has the most injured stars usually loses. Most fantasy sports leagues are also only for one sport. Bragstr lets players pick games on a regular basis against their friends across multiple sports every day and then brag about their success across the site and their social networks.” The site is launching in time for the kick-offs of the NFL and NCAA football seasons, and will include all major sports and their postseasons. In Bragstr.com leagues, players compete for virtual gold coins allowing them to manage their own bankroll, which can only be earned through league play, daily contests and social activity. Certain gold coin quantities can be redeemed for real-world prizes. Players can join now for free by visiting www.bragstr.com.
