AS Roma has become the second Italian football club to join Socios.com, a blockchain-based fan engagement and rewards mobile platform developed by Chiliz.
It lines up alongside the likes of Juventus, Paris Saint-Germain and West Ham United in offering fan tokens to supporters.
As AS Roma’s official cryptocurrency partner, Socios.com will provide digital assets that give fans the right to vote in certain decisions. The more fans do so, the more rewards they can earn. From the autumn, they will be able to choose the name of a club facility, make decisions over warm-up related activities at Stadio Olimpico, as well as decide which player will feature in a live Twitter Q&A.
Fan tokens will be tradeable against Socios.com’s native token, $CHZ, which is currently listed on BitMax, KuCoin and Binance DEX.
Francesco Calvo, Chief Revenue Officer at AS Roma, says: “As a club we have a duty to always be very attentive and proactive towards new technologies and innovation. Thanks to Socios.com’s blockchain platform, we can guarantee new opportunities to our fan base around the world, giving them the possibility to interact in an innovative way with their favourite team.”
