Blockchain technology project to tokenize voting rights, known mainly in the esports and gaming community. Main claim to fame among people outside of those two niches: “Project backed by Binance.”
ChiliZ: About the Platform
ChiliZ is a tokenized platform that allows fans to crowd-manage sports and esports teams.
- Sports fans buy, trade and execute ‘crowd-manager’ rights in the form of token.
- In return they can participate in decision making and governance for the team they support.
The inspiration came from traditional sports - for instance, Real Madrid is collectively controlled by its 90,000+ so-called socios. The concept and success of crowd-management in sports is already proven.
The issue is also relevant to the gaming community - from the ChiliZ.io website:
“Right now, if you want to do something relevant in esports — build a team, create a tournament — you need to have big investors. With chiliZ, we can have a platform where communities can submit projects, and fans can fund those projects, like in Kickstarter.”
ChiliZ: Token Promotion & Results
ChiliZ did not have a public token sale. Full token cap was reached in private sale.
There are multiple airdrops planned, they will be announced via @chiliz and other social media channels.
The token $CHZ is planned to get listed on cryptocurrency trading platforms during summer 2018.
ChiliZ has had an extensive press coverage following their partnership, spinoffs and collaboration announcements.
ChiliZ is a project of Mediarex Sports & Entertainment, a fintech company that also owns Socios 2.0.
