This deal gives us an equity stake in Bloosky and allows us to gain valuable resources necessary to continue doing what we do best. Above all else, Bloosky shares the same passion, values, and vision we have, which is one of the key reasons we were excited to do this deal. We now have more resources and funding which will allow us to accelerate the growth of the technology, as we will be able to build faster and bring more tools to help the affiliate community as a whole."
