PARIS, AUGUST 21 2023: Chiliz, the leading blockchain provider for the global sports industry, has announced that Crypto Blockchain Industries (CBI) will integrate the Chiliz Chain in Football at AlphaVerse (FAV), its 3D virtual world dedicated to football. The two companies will also work together to bring new utility to Socios.com Fan Token holders in the FAV universe.
CBI (Euronext Growth Paris: FR0014007LW0 – ALCBI) is a French tech company developing a new virtual world (metaverse) known as AlphaVerse, which is set to launch later this year. AlphaVerse will contain a number of different universes and entertainment platforms, where users can engage and access content in an immersive 3D environment.
Football at AlphaVerse (FAV) will be the focus of the Chiliz Labs x CBI strategic collaboration. FAV is an AI-powered 3D interactive entertainment platform dedicated to football and developed by CBI under official licences granted by football clubs. Many leading clubs from around the world such as Real Betis, São Paulo FC, Norwich City FC and Cardiff City FC have already signed up to be part of the FAV ecosystem, with details to be revealed in calendar Q4 of 2023 and early 2024, when FAV and the various fanzones open.
In FAV, players can EXPLORE environments dedicated to football and to such clubs, meet other fans, create and discover exclusive content, allowing Football at AlphaVerse to become an all inclusive world for football enthusiasts from around the globe. Players can PLAY mini-games, solo or multiplayer, and collect in-game rewards. Players will also receive unique and personalized experiences, as it is a world created “By the players – For the players”. FAV will reward and celebrate the most active fans, players and creators. Players can COLLECT many NFTs, based on trophies, events, seats in 3D reproductions of the stadiums. With their in-game activity and the NFTs, players can EARN real-life perks such as tickets for games, jerseys, access to meet-and-greet events with players or “Money Can’t Buy” experiences.
In Football at AlphaVerse, fans will use the $FAV utility token, which will be minted on Chiliz Chain. The maximum supply is 11 billion units of the $FAV utility token, such units to be made available gradually to the users.
The partnership will also create new utility for Fan Token holders on Chiliz’ fan engagement and rewards app Socios.com. They’ll be able to play games and compete within the FAV universe and access exclusive benefits, including digital merch and prizes. $FAV Tokens will also be paired against certain Fan Tokens. Further details on the Chiliz Labs-CBI partnership will be revealed in due course.
Chiliz Chain aims to become the home where brands and teams explore innovative new ways to bring fans and communities together through web3 technology and Fan Tokens. Continued innovation will drive the growth of the Chiliz Chain ecosystem, with Chiliz Labs – the $50M accelerator and incubator for sports focused blockchain projects – at the heart of this. Our latest partnership with CBI amplifies our commitment to build the largest global web3 ecosystem for sports having already onboarded media gamification platform LiveLike, live streaming provider FanFest, and athlete NFT platform Blockasset.
More web3 sports projects will be unveiled in the coming months, including rewards and engagement driven community platforms, social gaming platforms, AI-based content platforms, 3D quality digital sports collectibles and NFT ticketing.
Frédéric Chesnais, Founder and CEO of CBI / AlphaVerse said: “Partnering with Chiliz Labs and integrating Chiliz Chain in the AlphaVerse are logical steps for us given the footprint of Chiliz on the blockchain in general, and in the world of football in particular.
“We look forward to this long-term relationship bringing new experiences to football fans across the world.”
Alexandre Dreyfus, CEO of Chiliz said: “Through Chiliz Chain and Chiliz Labs we have developed the infrastructure and support network that will enable companies focused on creating long-lasting, utility-oriented sports projects to thrive.
