Lionel Messi-led FC Barcelona Now Into Cryptocurrency
Spain’s soccer club FC Barcelona, which boasts Lionel Messi as a current team member, is set to have its own token that will give voting power to its “over 300 million” global fans. FC Barcelona, or Barca, has teamed up with fintech platform Chiliz to create a blockchain-based token for the sports franchise.
As part of the partnership with FC Barcelona, Chiliz created Barca Fan Tokens (BAR) for use on its social mobile app called Socios. The BAR token holders will be able to cast votes for certain club decisions.
Few other clubs have since adopted the idea of cryptocurrency for Votes and are already generating tokens for this. It is clear that crypto has come to take over and even help revolutionize the world through the existence of Blockchain technology.
