Who is behind Chiliz?

Chiliz, with Alexandre Dreyfus as a chief executive officer, has been run by strong team members across 29 different nationalities. The development office is in Lyon, France while the active operations are in Turkey, Spain, South Korea & Brazil, the UK & Sweden.

What is the purpose of Chiliz? 

Chiliz’ vision is to bridge the gap between the active and passive fan, providing millions of sports fanatics a Fan Token which acts as a tokenized share of influence.

Insights:

  • All sports and esports teams will debut with a specified, finite number of Fan Tokens tied to concrete voting rights. Fans who obtain voting rights by trading CHZ tokens for Fan tokens, gain a decision-making right for that team.
  • When a new organization goes live on Socios.com, its supply of Fan Tokens is offered for purchase by fans on a first come, first served basis at a fixed price.
  • Fans holding Fan tokens are granted access to the marketplace. Here fans can auction off or purchase Fan Tokens they hold.
  • The CHZ Token exclusively fuels Socios.com, their consumer facing platform where fans can utilise their Fan Tokens to participate in polls and surveys and be rewarded through active engagement.

Risks:

  • Chiliz has its own specific purpose of being a sports and entertainment currency. This might narrow down the investors’ interest in such a particular fan token system of Chiliz.
  • Chiliz Exchange does not allow US-investors on its exchange due to SEC (the Securities Exchange Commission) regulations.
  • Withdrawal fees’ information hasn’t been informed. This is potentially a risk for the investors. Whenever an exchange does not provide fee transparency, there is a higher risk that such fees are high. 

News and Updates:

  • Socios.com has partnered with household sporting organizations such as AC Milan, Manchester City, Juventus as well as the Professional Fighters league to launch their respective Fan Tokens on the platform. Many more are set to launch in future.
  • Chiliz (CHZ) was added by Coinbase to its professional cryptocurrency trading platform as of Jun 15, 2021which means Coinbase Pro users could transfer the tokens into their accounts, causing the token price to spike.
  • Chiliz has just announced a partnership with premier league giant Everton to launch their fan token on the Socios.com app. The partnership is yet another in a long list of football teams to have opted to increase fan engagement with the Socios.com app. 
  • The UFC officially announced that it would debut a UFC Fan Token on fan engagement and rewards app Socios.com. Minted on the Chiliz blockchain, the token was scheduled for launch in June and would have a maximum supply of 20 million tokens.
  • CHZ had skyrocketed from an intraday low at $0.032468 on Feb. 23, 2021 to an intraday high at $0.155004, a 377% increase in less than a week. This sharp up-move had pushed the relative strength index (RSI) above 89, indicating the rally is overbought in the short term.
