BEIJING, Jan. 25, 2021，Scienjoy Holding Corporation ("Scienjoy", the "Company", or "We") (NASDAQ: SJ), a leading live entertainment mobile streaming platform in China, is using cutting-edge technology and high-quality-content-creating applications from the MCN sector to establish six compelling complete virtual reality worlds, or "Second Life Worlds" (the "virtual reality worlds") in the Company's show live streaming platforms, with the aim to efficiently enhance the customer stickiness, generate higher engagement, and drive a stronger user willingness to pay. Based on the 4G technology, the Company's small-scale rollout of three virtual reality worlds in 2020 has been successful, and with the gradual application of the 5G technology, the Company is expected to fully launch six complete virtual reality worlds in the near future.
In December 2020, the Company announced its business strategies of "Live Streaming Full Ecosystem", covering the brand-new Entertainment, E-commerce and Multi-Channel Network (MCN) sectors. As one of the top priorities of future development, the high-quality-content-creating applications from the MCN sector will provide in-depth resource integration and efficient output for the development and maturation of the two sub-ecologies of Entertainment and E-commerce, and create content monetarization opportunities with high growth potential for the Company.
Based on the 4G technology, the Company launched three virtual reality worlds in 2020 on a small scale and has enriched the scenarios and enhanced the entertainment of its show live streaming platforms. Through AI-powered face-modifying and voice-modifying technology, each virtual reality world allows broadcasters and users to customize their own characters in the virtual world, including roles, voices and character relationships, and thus provides fully immersive and interactive scenarios. Such enriched content also diversifies the single relationship between broadcasters and users, adding a more complex and entertaining multi-dimensional relationships within broadcasters and users, respectively.
With the application of the 5G technology, Scienjoy will accelerate the full-scale application of six complete virtual reality worlds. The initial application in 2020 has already received positive feedback and gained acceptance from users and broadcasters, proving the feasibility and rationality of the virtual reality worlds. The Company will increase investment in research and development this year and plans to launch six complete virtual reality worlds in its show live streaming platforms in the near future, which is expected to efficiently enhance the customer stickiness, generate higher engagement, and drive a stronger user willingness to pay through the cutting-edge technology and high-quality-content-creating applications.
Mr. Victor He, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Scienjoy, commented, "With the intensifying segmentation of the live streaming industry and the increasing demand for high quality content, we hope to promote ourselves through the high-quality-content-creating applications, so we introduced the virtual reality worlds. We are delighted that the small-scale application has received active participation and enthusiastic feedback from all participants on the platforms, which reinforced our confidence in the application of the MCN sector. This year, six complete virtual reality worlds are expected to be fully established and applied in our show live streaming platforms, and I am very confident that they will increase the attention and traffic to our platforms, and drive revenue growth efficiently."
