Welcome to the Web3 chapter of Ohio State

Web3 isn’t about tokens, or NFTs, or the evolution of the metaverse – it’s about how the next chapter of the web reimagines the relationships between people, companies, and information.

Ohio State and Rare Goods have embraced this unique opportunity to reimagine insights, service, and commerce for a decentralized world through our products centered on customer experiences and empowerment.

Referral and Recruiting

Who better to convince new users to join than one of their friends or family members? We allow you to reward your users for recruiting other new members to the program. On average, 18% of the members in our programs were recruited by other members. 

Personalized Social Sharing

Posts shared by users reach 15-35% of their followers as opposed to brand/page posts which reach less than 5% of their followers. We allow you to create personalized social media posts (bypassing ad filters) that users earn rewards for sharing on Facebook, Twitter, and more.

Custom Surveys

Ask your users anything you would like to know and they will be rewarded for completing the survey. Surveys can include images and custom question types and are an ideal way to collect product feedback, have users participate in decisions, or gather key information.

Points for Scanning

Setup custom QR codes, NFC tags, or scan an item and reward users for following the link back to the program.

  • Put in broadcast to reward viewership
  • Add to check/receipt for quick proof of purchase
  • Put NCF Tag at physical locations for tap to earn checkpoints
  • Add QR code inside packaging for easy proof of purchase

Gamify Social Media

We can connect with your Social Media feeds and give users points or rewards for viewing each post through the program. This is a great evergreen tactic where users can always earn more points by viewing your latest posts on the platform.


Test your customers’ knowledge with rewardable quizzes. These are perfect for verifying someone digested content or a secret word on a podcast or at an event. It’s a great tool for enrollment for an easy way to prove participation.

Visit a Location

Reward customers or users for visiting physical locations. Our system can either check the user’s GPS coordinates, or we can set up physical touch points where users have to tap their phone on an NFC tag to prove they were there.

View or Read Content

Add content to a post within our system and reward users when they read down to the bottom of the content.

Visit a Link or specific URL

Drive traffic to product, partner, or campaign pages by rewarding users for visiting a specific URL of your choosing. Turn it into a digital scavenger hunt by pairing it with a quiz about content on the page for additional participation.

Watch a Video

Reward users for watching a video. You can set the % required to watch before they complete the challenge, and can always follow up with a quiz question to ensure they were paying attention.

NFTs or Points for Purchasing

Keep your customers engaged beyond purchasing a product by awarding them points or NFTs.

Blockchain Proof of Purchase

With our blockchain and custom URL flow, we can quickly add blockchain certificates or proof of purchase permanently on chain. This is a great tool for verification, authenticity, and warranty guarantees.
