FAN TOKENS & HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF $CHZ AVAILABLE FOR FREE VIA TOKEN HUNT ON SOCIOS.COM

MALTA, 13th January 2020: Chiliz (Binance.com: $CHZ) announces that hundreds of thousands of $CHZ Tokens and thousands of Paris Saint-Germain ($PSG), Atlético de Madrid ($ATM), A.S. Roma ($ASR), Galatasaray ($GAL), Juventus ($JUV) Fan Tokens can be collected for free on Socios.com via the Augmented Reality (AR) feature Token Hunt until the end of January.

Token Hunt will give fans the opportunity to collect a limited amount of Fan Tokens for free in anticipation of the second phase of Fan Token Offerings (FTO™) to take place from late January onwards. $CHZ, the digital currency of Socios.com, can also be accumulated for free and exchanged for Fan Tokens during the sale period. 

Ownership of Fan Tokens allows users the opportunity to access incredible, unforgettable experiences, earn reward points and vote in club polls and surveys. The more Tokens a fan owns, the more chances they have to win. The first polls for each of our partner clubs will be launched to coincide with the FTO’s.

Using Token Hunt to acquire free $CHZ and Fan Tokens is easy. All you need to do is download the Socios.com app and register before clicking on Daily Global Hunt in the ‘Hunt’ section.

Token Hunt uses geo-location technology to place $CHZ and Fan Tokens at millions of ‘points of interest’ across the world, from stadiums to city centres, and everywhere else in between, ready and waiting for fans to find them. When you join the Daily Global Hunt six question mark icons will pop up in your vicinity, regardless of where you are located (usually within a few hundred metres). Tap on any of the question mark icons and it will be revealed as either $CHZ or Fan Tokens. As you approach the Token, simply tap on it. In this moment, AR mode will be activated, the token will appear in augmented reality, and you simply tap to add it to your in-app wallet.

Alexandre Dreyfus, CEO & Founder of Chiliz & Socios.com, said: “We anticipate that 2020 will be the year that Chiliz & Socios.com transform fan engagement, creating a new connection between fans and their clubs the world over. “This is an incredibly exciting moment, as our platform will enable sports fans to lead the way in the mainstream normalisation of blockchain & cryptocurrency. “Last week we proved the utility of Fan Tokens, after Juventus fans around the world used $JUV Fan Tokens to choose their new goal celebration song in the first ever poll held on Socios.com. “Token Hunt provides an excellent incentive for regular football fans to become familiar with Socios.com ahead of the second phase of FTO’s with several of Europe’s biggest clubs, allowing them to collect some free $CHZ and, if they are lucky, some Fan Tokens along the way.”

Socios.com is a first-of-its-kind blockchain-based mobile app for sports and entertainment fans. The app is available to download for Android. A full release via the App Store is imminent.

Notes to editor: 

Chiliz ($CHZ) is a digital currency for sports and entertainment platforms. It fuels the world’s first scalable, tokenized voting & rewards platform, Socios.com, where fans can buy, trade and execute voting rights in their favorite sports teams. The Chiliz project has raised $66 million from some of the world’s largest cryptocurrency exchanges and leading crypto funds in Asia, including Binance, OK Blockchain Capital and Ceyuan Ventures. Chiliz is owned by Malta-based Mediarex Group, a global sports and entertainment organisation, which was founded in 2012.

Socios.com helps football clubs achieve digital transformation through blockchain technology. Socios.com is powered by the Chiliz token ($CHZ), both an ERC20 utility token on the Ethereum blockchain and BEP-2 token on Binance Chain. Fan Tokens are specific to a team or a club, and are a finite, digital asset that provides access to an encrypted, immutable ledger of voting and membership rights ownership. The tokenized fan-voting platform uses Fan Tokens, which operate on a separate permissioned side chain. The Fan Tokens are limited in number, and are fungible, meaning their ownership can be traded, and their price is driven by the market. The venture was inspired by the fan-led management frameworks or ‘socios’ of some major football clubs. Dubbed ‘Socios 2.0’, the platform simply represents the digitisation of this model of management.
