Razer has partnered with MOL to distribute zGold. This will get Razer’s new virtual currency into markets across Southeast Asia and Australia, and will also expand the number of titles zGold applies to as it now has access to MOL’s network of partnerships.
Going forward, MOLPoints will be rebranded as zGold-MOLPoints. This cross branding allows the currency to be spent on over 2500 titles; including those from the PlayStation Store SEA and Facebook Gameroom. It looks like the same MOL partners, but now using a rebranded credit system.
Spending zGold also earns a currency known as zSilver. This second currency is more virtual in the sense that it can only be earned and not directly bought. However, it can also only be used to buy things on Razer’s zVault catalogue. zSilver can also be earned by playing games through the Razer Cortex platform.
Razer has also bought a minority stake in MOL Global for an undisclosed sum. This gives the peripheral maker a 19.9 percent share in MOL, and more than a minor interest in making this partnership work.
