Chiliz is not working with fan tokens for the first time. So far, it has launched tokens for up to seven soccer clubs.
Apart from fan tokens, Chiliz is partnering with UFC, a leading mixed martial arts promotion, to make it possible for tickets to be bought on the Socios platform in exchange for CHZ.
Chiliz is also working on a blockchain-based project dubbed “immunity pass” from April to help facilitate live attendees of soccer matches.
