18th July – Tallinn, Estonia — Zonda, one of the largest European-based digital currency exchanges with over a million registered users, is today announcing the launch of fan tokens on its platform. Fans of sports clubs like Italian football club Juventus ($JUV), and Polish football team Legia Warszawa ($LEG), will be able to support their club through trading pairs with Euro and Polish Zloty.
Developed by Socios.com, part of the Chiliz (CHZ) network, fan tokens introduce a new layer of engagement to the world of sports, helping supporters interact with their favourite clubs in a unique way. Sports fans from anywhere in the world can now take part in a variety of club-specific voting decisions on events like updating the team motto, changing club outfit designs, or even impacting a match starting formation.
Fan tokens come with a host of benefits and exclusive perks, including opportunities to win autographed memorabilia, meet team members, or get VIP stadium access. To get involved, sports fans simply need to buy one or more tokens of their favourite team and they can start enjoying the benefits. The more tokens held the more benefits and voting rights are made available.
Commenting on the launch, Stanislav Havryliuk, Chief Operating Officer at Zonda, said: “We’re excited to add fan tokens to our growing list of digital assets because they bring a new and interesting twist to the world of crypto. Through the fan tokens, supporters can engage with their favourite sports team in a unique way, provide valuable input on club decisions, and access a range of exclusive benefits that aren’t available elsewhere. We love to see blockchain being used in new and innovative ways, and fan tokens certainly do that.”
Initially, Zonda will be listing fan tokens for Polish football team Legia Warszawa ($LEG) and Italian football club Juventus ($JUV), with plans for listings in the future. Initial trading pairs will include LEG/PLN, JUV/PLN, and JUV/EUR.
