OG fans, also known as 🌻’ – a name popularised through Twitch – will be able to take part in numerous polls on Socios.com, with the next poll topic to be revealed in the near future.

Only those in possession of $OG Fan Tokens are eligible to vote. Fans can purchase $OG Fan Tokens in the OG Token Offering (FTO™), which is open now on Socios.com. Each $OG Fan Token is priced at around $1 depending on the exchange rate of Chiliz $CHZ, the digital currency of Socios.com, at the time of purchase.  Once acquired, $OG Fan Tokens cannot be spent and can be used to take part in all future OG votes on the app.

Fans will earn reward points for taking part in OG polls and engaging with the team through Socios.com, giving them the opportunity to access event tickets, VIP meet-ups, exclusive OG merchandise – including signed jerseys –  and other unique experiences linked to OG. Socios.com and OG will reward fans in other exciting ways too, creating once-in-a-lifetime experiences and allowing OG fans to get closer to their heroes. The more Fan Tokens accumulated and the more a fan interacts with the app, the more reward points they will receive, increasing their chances of winning one of these incredible experiences.

Alexandre Dreyfus, CEO & Founder of Socios.com, said: “$OG Fan Token holders have made the perfect choice. It’s a real smart play – choosing an in-game banner that will remind opponents of the team’s incredible, unprecedented achievements. “🌻’ can look forward to seeing their choice throughout the DPC season and will have plenty more opportunities to influence their team in the future, too.”

OG is the first esports partner to be launched on the Socios.com platform, joining the likes of FC Barcelona, Juventus, Paris Saint-Germain, AS Roma, Atlético Madrid, Club Atlético Independiente & Galatasaray in launching Fan Tokens for supporters all over the world.

About Chiliz
Chiliz ($CHZ) is a digital currency for sports and entertainment platforms. It fuels the world’s first scalable, tokenized voting platform, Socios.com where fans can buy, trade and execute voting rights in their sports teams. The Chiliz project has raised $66 million from some of the world’s largest cryptocurrency exchanges and leading crypto funds in Asia, including Binance, OK Blockchain Capital, and Ceyuan Ventures. Chiliz is owned by Malta-based Mediarex Group, a global sports and entertainment organisation, which was founded in 2012. In January 2020, Chiliz announced the launch of Chiliz.net, a first-of-its-kind mobile and desktop crypto exchange for sports and entertainment assets.

About Socios.com
Socios.com is powered by the Chiliz token ($CHZ), both an ERC20 utility token on the Ethereum blockchain and BEP-2 token on Binance Chain. Fan Tokens are specific to a team or a club, and are a finite, digital asset that provides access to an encrypted, immutable ledger of voting and membership rights ownership. The tokenized fan-voting platform uses Fan Tokens, which operate on a separate permissioned side chain. The Fan Tokens are limited in number, and are fungible, meaning their ownership can be traded, and their price is driven by the market. The venture was inspired by the fan-led management frameworks or ‘socios’ of some major football clubs. Dubbed ‘Socios 2.0’, the platform simply represents the digitisation of this model of management.
