Versus Partners with Kast to Expand Beyond Gaming Into Streaming Video

Versus to bring rewards to the $250 Billion global video streaming market

LOS ANGELES, April 14, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Versus Systems, Inc. ("Versus") (CSE:VS) (OTCQB:VRSSF) (FRANKFURT:BMVA) today announces an agreement with Kast to bring Versus’ proprietary in-app rewards technology to Kast’s successful watch party platform.

This is an important step for Versus in that Kast is the first non-gaming content partner to integrate the Versus rewards platform. Social streaming, watch parties and video are a part of what Business Wire estimates as a $250 Billion dollar global streaming market that is estimated to grow at 19% CAGR through 2024.

Kast is a real-time video sharing app with screen capture, voice, text, and video chat technology that makes it easy to connect with friends wherever they are in a watch party. Kast is the ultimate virtual living room solution for all your content needs. Kast has recently been featured in well-known media outlets like Wired, Mashable, The Next Web, The Evening Standard, NBC and more.

The two companies will work together to integrate real-world rewards into Kast’s watch party apps to increase engagement for hosts of watch parties, known as “Kasters,” and watch party spectators alike.

“Kast is a true pioneer in the watch party space,” said John O’Connell, Head of Business Development for Versus Systems. “We are excited to bring our in-game reward technologies to their apps, creators and spectators later this year.”

Justin Weissberg, Co-founder and President of Kast commented: “Versus brings real, tangible rewards to their partners’ growing audiences. We are excited to bring our community rewards they can experience with their Kast friends and family.”
