BEIJINGMay 23, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Glory Star New Media Group Holdings Limited, ("Glory Star", the "Company" or "we") (NASDAQ: GSMG), a leading digital media platform and content-driven e-commerce company in China, today announced a major upgrade to its self-developed digital collection non-fungible tokens ("NFT") application, CheerReal. The update is now available on both Android and IOS apps and comes with improved security, advanced technology, enhanced functionality, and a more user-friendly interface.

CheerReal is positioned as a "cultural and artistic digital collection" platform that aims to create a new cultural and artistic interactive experience, connecting virtual and real economy through innovative digital art and a diverse and inclusive metaverse world.

With the continuous development of blockchain technology, CheerReal aims to provide an even better user experience. The upgrade is expected to make the platform even more engaging and dynamic, strengthening its position in the market and attracting more art collectors and enthusiasts. New collections take inspiration from the ancient Silk Road and the Classic of Mountains and Seas ("Shan Hai Jing"), and give them a contemporary touch. The new "Spark Community" and "CheerReal Club" provide creators and users with official channels for gifting, exchanging, circulating, and auctioning digital assets, giving them more space and opportunities to showcase their digital assets. CheerReal is currently only available in China.
