Chiliz, one of the leading fintech platform for the sports industry announced a partnership with its early investor, Binance. According to the official announcement, Binance is also pouring in additional investment into the fintech platform. Interestingly, this will renew the strength and credibility of Chiliz. The partnership will begin with the allocation of Fan Tokens allocation through Binance Launchpool.
The first Chiliz platform to benefit from this partnership will be Socios.com. Basically, Socios.com is a platform enabling crowd-management of favorite teams for sports and esports fans. Moreover, major football clubs like FC Barcelona, Paris Saint-Germain, Juventus, Atlético Madrid, Galatasaray, West Ham, OG, and AS Roma have partnered with Socios. The football clubs are using the platform as a part of their fan engagement strategy by conducting Fan Token Offerings (FTO). Basically, Fan tokens are digital assets that provide membership and voting rights ownership to the fans.
We should see $BAR and other tokens there as well soon!
