What is Chiliz (CHZ)?

Chiliz (CHZ) is the leading digital currency for sports and entertainment on which the world's first blockchain-based fan engagement and reward platform, Socios, is based. Fans can buy and sell branded fan tokens and participate, influence and vote in club surveys and polls. Founded in Malta in 2018, the company's vision is to bridge the gap between active and passive fans by providing millions of sports fans with a fan token (Fan Token) that acts as a tokenised share of influence.

As an exclusive currency on the platform, fans use CHZ to purchase these branded fan tokens, giving users the ability to influence decision-making by voting in our partner surveys published in the Socios app. In addition, owning a token also gives fans access to exclusive rewards and new experiences, as well as gamification, social interaction and a leaderboard service.

Key features of Chiliz (CHZ)

  • The CHZ token exclusively powers Socios, their consumer-centric platform, where fans can use their fan tokens to participate in surveys and polls and earn rewards through active participation.
  • CHZ tokens must participate in Fan Token Offerings (FTO), the initial sale of fan tokens and the Socios Locker Room, where potential partner clubs or sports that can be used for fan tokens are shown on numerous requests and thus attract clubs or sports brands to join the platform!
  • CHZ tokens can also be used to buy or trade fan tokens on a consumer-oriented platform.
  • Fan tokens can be traded on the internal Chiliz exchange for the Chiliz Token, CHZ.
  • The CHZ token has high liquidity and is traded on several of the largest and globally recognised exchanges, such as Binance (a key investor).

The Socios platform

The Socios platform was developed to provide voting for fan token holders, created and distributed on the platform.

Socios focuses on the tokenisation of sports club governance because the development team believes that the use of blockchain technology can solve the problems associated with fan-based decision-making and transparent voting. Fan tokens were created to provide voting rights, and they run on Socios' Proof-of-Authority Powers blockchain allowed.

The Socios platform has several essential features:

Fan token offer.

When a new organisation goes live, their fan tokens are offered for purchase by fans on a first-come, first-served basis at a fixed price.

Voting rights.

All sports and cyber sports teams debut with a certain finite number of fan tokens tied to specific voting rights. Fans who obtain voting rights by exchanging CHZ tokens for fan tokens get decision-making rights for that team.

Buy and sell Fan tokens.

Fans who control Fan tokens gain access to the marketplace. Here fans can auction off their voting rights (fan tokens).

It is also important to note that fan tokens are not consumed in the voting process. It is simply a licence to participate in governance, and users do not lose tokens when they vote. Instead, they retain ownership of the tokens and can vote again in the future when new decisions are made.

How does it work?

The very first teams to use the Socios platform were Paris Saint-Germain and Juventus, both of whom created Fan Tokens to create a mass voting economy on the platform.

Each created a predetermined number of Fan Tokens to transmit a certain number of votes to their fans. Each team that joins the platform decides what impact they will have on fans when creating their fan token base.

The fans then use the platform to buy fan tokens using their CHZ tokens. Each fan token gives fans a certain number of votes to interact with polls, surveys and decisions published by the primary team.

All that is required is to own a token to be eligible to vote, and each fan token carries equal weight in the voting process. So fans speak, and teams listen.

Although football was the first vertical, Team Chiliz plans to add other sports in the future, and, as of May 2021, they have already signed deals with Formula 1 and NASCAR racing teams.

Historical precedents

There are already precedents set by sports franchises that support the Socios methodology. For example, the football clubs FC Barcelona, Real Madrid, FC Porto and SL Benfica are partly run by fan/owner groups that actively participate in managing the teams by voting and electing the board members and team management.

This is indirect management of the teams, which gives some guidance on top-down management decisions made by each team.

There is also one community-owned team in the NFL, the Green Bay Packers. The Packers have over 300,000 4 shareholders who make decisions regarding the management and governance of the organisation. No single entity can own more than 5% of the more than XNUMX million outstanding shares, ensuring a democratic process.

What is the cryptocurrency Chiliz 

(CHZ) Chiliz is a digital currency that powers sports and entertainment platforms and is also the official, only cryptocurrency that operates on fan voting portal Socios. Socios allows sports and cyber sports fans to manage their favourite teams, games, leagues and events. 

Chiliz is a digital currency for tokenisation of sports and entertainment. It is a blockchain technology that enables the creation of products for everyday consumers. Chiliz created the Socios platform to enable fans to engage more actively with their favourite teams. The utility of the Chiliz coin is to give fans a voice and the ability to participate in decision-making for organisations that join the Socios platform.  

What are fan tokens  

Fan tokens are a cryptographic service token that contains the branding of partner sports teams. With the tokens, fans get to vote and participate in decisions regarding their favourite teams. Fan tokens can be purchased with Chiliz tokens. 

If we talk about the benefits for the sports teams, this way, they gain additional income through tokenisation. Also, all groups who connect to the Socios platform receive a percentage of the fees charged for the transactions. The first two teams to tokenise on the platform were Paris Saint-Germain and Juventus football clubs. West Ham United, Associazione Sportiva Roma, Club Atlético de Madrid and cybersport team OG joined them. Ownership of the unique branded fan tokens of the partner clubs will also give fans access to exclusive content, gamification, social networking and leaderboard features.
